Add more disk DL385G1 P600

Hi

I have a DL385G1 with a P600 controller, configured with 1 logical drive across 8 x 72GB SAS drives in RAID 5.

This server runs VMware ESX 3.0.2

Is it possible to either replace these disks with 146GB models or add an MSA onto the external P600 port and expand the array?

Thanks that's what I wanted to know.

How do I assign points as I don't have an option to clik on?

Re: Add more disk DL385G1 P600

That's what I thought. There is no menu though, just text saying "unassigned"

Hi

I cannot assign points as I do not have an option to do so.

Perhaps there is some IE security stopping the content from working properly?
