SAS HDD Addon on a rx2660

Hi there,

I have a rx2660 server with 2X146 GB of SAS HDD with RAID-1 comes as factory intigrated. I like to add 4X146 GB of HDD. But this server doesn't suppport more then 4 HDD as a pair of RAID as 2X2 HDD and a global Hot Spare with its onboard array controller. Now I create another IM with 2 HDD and make 2 RAID-1 pair with 4 HDD. But I like to add the remaining 2 HDD in the RAID though these two HDD ca be executed normally. Is there any procedure to add the remaining 2 HDD with any of the RAID or I need to add a new array controller card and make another RAID-1?

You can upgrade the internal controller with an SA P400 or use LVM to mirror the "plain" disks.

Hope this helps!

Hi UnixGuy,

First of all, can you explain what type of problem will occur if I add another controller card?

Secondly, in rx2660, RAID-5 is not possible as its controller card don't support RAID-5.
Is there any oyher solution??
Thanx.
