modify Array configuration: RAID0 to RAID1 and add a disk

A server as been very bad install:
this server contain 2 hard drive and a E200i Smart ary controller.

Normally, disk configuration is a mirroring.
But a technician has create a RAID 0 with only 1 harddisk...
The other harddisk is unassigned.
You can show configuration in attachment.

Is there possible to modify this configuration to a raid 1 and to add the unassigned harddisk to the raid without a lost of data ?


Apparently, it is impossible with the GUI.
But I have found all needed command in the ACU CLI:
ctrl slot=1 logicaldrive 1 modify raid=1 stripesize=default
ctrl slot=1 logicaldrive 1 add drive=2

Are those 2 commands my solution ?

Thanks in advance.

franck,

the e200 does support raid migration so that should work ok, but please do a backup before you start ! :-)

hope this helps
