best way to replace a raidset with bigger disks on HSG80

Hi gurus!

I want to replace 4x32GB with 4x172GB. All four 32GB disks are part of one raidset. Is any way to do that from the HSG80 and use the full capacity of the new drives without the well known "backup and restore" method?

Thanks
Rafael

Unfortunately not as the HSG works different than a SmartArray controller :-(

If you have enough free slots, you should be able to pre-create the new device, map it to the host and do a directory-tree copy.
