expanding sas (raid 1) array USING ACU

We are a small company whom are running out of space on our local drive.

We have 3 bays which we are not using which means that we want to use these bays for en ekstra spare drive and to ekstra drives for data storage.

I have read that it should be farely easy using ACU just plug in drives (3. 2,5" SAS ) and add them to the existing array, but is that true ????

and is there a guide which could be helpful in this.

Thx for help.

Re: expanding sas (raid 1) array USING ACU

Some more information would be helpful.
What Hardware?
momentary array configuration?
future array configuration?

But to generally answer you question: Yes, it is true. You can easily add disks to an exsiting array wich will be extended automatically.

kind regards
