replacing drives with larger ones

I want to replace drives with larger ones, one at a time to increase my array. The manual says to remove drives when the Drive Failure Light only is lit. I want to replace drives that have not failed; the drive indicator lights show I should NOT remove the drive. How do I do this?

Re: replacing drives with larger ones

You would need to down the server, replace the drive, let it complete the rebuild, then repeat the process for each drive in the array. Once all have been replaced, you would then be able to create another logical drive in the array. Then you would go into the software to let it know you had additional space.
