Add disks to HP ML350 G5

Hi,

I have a ML350 G5 in a remote location.

The server has 4 72GB Disks in a RAID5 connected to a "Smart Array E200i in Embedded Slot" Controller.

Now it's running out of disk space and I would like to add one or preferably two disks in RAID1.

As far as I know, the server should have two more slots, but is the controller able to handle more disks?

Please let me know if more information is required to verify this!

Thanks
stephan

HI,

As it is embedded RAID controller , so it will support another 2 HDD as there is 6 HDD bay by default .

Well I would not take that as granted just because it's the builtin Controller.

I had a DL360 G5 (6 bays) that could only handle 4 drives, we had to purchase an addon or another cable or something, don't remember exactly.
