I have an MSA30 with a dual bus that is connected to my rp3440-4 server (HP-UX 11.23).  There are twelve 72.8GB hard drives installed into it right now.  I have two more drives on the shelf for hot swaps but now I am considering installing them into the two empty slots.  With that being said I have a few questions about doing this.  When the MSA30 was setup they had set it up as a raid 1-0, stripped six drives on the first bus and then mirrored it with the six drives on the second bus.


1.  Once I put the two drives into the empty slots how should i go about adding them into the raid? 


2.  Or can I add them to the existing raid?


3.  I am also in the process of trying to figure out a way to mirror the raid (vg01) onto my SAN which is a PS6500.


Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: MSA30

Could you post an


# ioscan -fn


I want to know if there is a smart array controller.




Regarding (3) - did you mirror the data to the SAN as suggested?

Hope this helps!
