Put new disk into existing raid controller

Hi All!

 

I known this is old hardware.. but..

 

I have an Smart Array 532 controller in an Proliant ML350 G2 Server with Windows 2003 Server OS. Has only one disk configured as RAID 0

 

Is possible put in the system another disk with data from other server and no lost this data??? (this new disk is a plain disk in the other server - not configured under raid)

 

Thanks in advance..

Hi

It should be possible if you configure raid 0 but do a backup if you data is important

Hi, this is how solved..

 

I just unplugged the connector from the cage of disks to the raid controller and plugged in the plain scsi controller on the motherboard. Then, install the new disk on the cage and turn on the server.

 

Thanks!

Regards..
