MSA30 Add Bigger Disk

I have 4 disks (146GB) in a a raid5 configuration in Logical Drive 0. I want to replace the 4 disk with 300k drives. I have remove logical device from volume group so there is no current live data.
Should I replace smaller disk with bigger disk and let disk array automatically add the new capacity or delete logical drive 0 and build a new logical drive with new disk?

Since you removed all the data, it will be much quicker to delete the logical drive and replce the all disks at the same time.

Hi,
For RAID5 implementation ALL 4 disk should be in SAME capicity e.g all 4 are 146GB.

This configuration will be configure again.
