Change Raid on DL360G3

We have a DL360G3 which currently has a single drive in RAID0. We add another drive and change to RAID1. It appears in the ACU that this should be possible, but when I attempt to migrate the RAID level, I am only offered RAID0 as an option. How to I change to RAID1, do I have to start again ?

Re: Change Raid on DL360G3

Colin,
You can't go from Raid 0 to Raid 1 on our array controllers. You can migrate between Raid 1 and Raid 5 (depending on the number of drives you have available)...but you can't go from a non-fault tolerant Raid level to a fault tolerant raid level or vice versa.

Re: Change Raid on DL360G3

I ran into this same problem last week on a DL380. I tried several different ways to image the data and somehow apply it to the new config, but you'll probably find it quicker to just back it up and rebuild.
