Replacing a 2SL with a 2DH

Hi,
I have a netware server with a Smart-2SL and 3 x 9G hotplug drives and I need to add an extra one. The 3 current drives are configured for RAID5 and hold the entire Netware system, ie. Dos, SYS & Vol1.
How can I add the 4th drive and expand the array? I also have a spare 2DH here, could I use that sucessfully to add the drive ?
Could I expand the array online with the 2DH controller?
Thanks -Mark

You would need to replace the Smart-2SL with the Smart-2DH, which would allow for expansion of the array, however you would not be able to go back to the Smart-2SL.

Thanks, just busy creating RomPaqs to upgrade - anything I should be aware of?
