Array Expand Issue


We have HP DL 180 G9 with HPE H240 HBA Riad Card.
Current configuration contains below

Array A - 1 Logical Drive Raid -1 with 2 identical SAS 300Gb drive

Array B - 1 Logical Dirve - Raid - 5 with 4 Identical SAS 600Gb drive with 1 HDD being Deicated Spare

we are now trying to expnad the Array B for that we have purchased same identical 600Gb drive and connected and visible under Unassined drives section. 

we are unable to find the option on expaning the logical drive for Array 2 using the HP SMart Storage Administrator software.

please help us on how to do it.




Re: Array Expand Issue

The H240 is primarily designed as an HBA but has some simplistic RAID abilities. It has no battery or cache module therefore I believe does not support expansion of existing RAID groups at the controller level.
