Adding disk to form mirror


I have a DL308 G3 that was installed with a single disk (36GB U320 SCSI 10K rpm).

Is it possible to add another disk to create a RAID 1 group with the initial disk?


Best Regards,

Rui Vilao.

Hello Rui,
yes, you can add a second disk in your server and create a RAID 1, this kind of server has a Smart Array 5i embedded.
insert your new disk an configure it from Array configuration utility.

like Mynor says add the new HDD open the Array Configuration utility(ACU) and make a migration process RAID 0 to RAID 1

see the ACU manual, page 24
