VA7100 Disk swapping

What if I pull an 18Gig active disk from a VA7100 and replace it with a 36Gig, and let it rebuild the set. Can I then use the extra 18gig of that 36gig drive?
If it works perfectly, it must be broke.

Hi Sander,

You need to install 4 disk of the same capacity to gain extra disk space.

Re: VA7100 Disk swapping

so if I replace all 15 disks, 1 by one, waiting for the rebuilds to end, I could use all space?

So this means I could replace all 18gigs with 36gigs without any downtime?

Sander,

Yes, if you replace them disk by this and you wait each time the rebuild is done you will gain extra capacity
