Disk changing in RAID 5

Hi everyone !
My server is HP Netserver LC2000 with NetRaid 1M and the raid is RAID 5 with 3 disks.
The question is:
Can I add more disks into this RAID-array without any problem for the initial array ?
Thanx,
Emil

Re: Disk changing in RAID 5

Hi Emil,

You will be able to increase your raid capacity with your 1m controller.

You have to do this in the NetRaid assistant. If you don't have it installed on your NetServer, you will find it on the NetServer Navigator CD. Within the NetRaid assistant you kan use Virtual Sizing or On-line Storage Expansion. This is a feature for size expansion without rebooting the server.

Good luck.
