Add disk to logical array SA221


I have a Proliant 1600 with 4 x 18gb Drives running Netware 5.0. I need to add 2 x 18gb drives to my array. I have downloaded the ACU tool but when this is ran I get the error "battery backup needed". One option I have is erase then rebuild the server from a backup, BUT could I purchse a new Smart Array card with battery backup and somehow rebuild the array with the new card? Then expand the array?

Yes you can buy an Array Controller with a battery backup and reconfigure your system. But it depends as to what do u need it for and how much money you have budgeted for this. Please call our Tech Support at 1-800-OK-COMPAQ.
