Re: DL 380 G4 storage server

As you have already configured RAID, only the 36 GB HDD will work.

Normally when you connect a higher capacity HDD it should detect the HDD, and the remaining space should be shown as Unused....

thanks,

the problem is the recovery DVD detect the 2 72 GB desk but it return a message that 2 desks must be 36 GB.
what even i can do to make 72 GB desk read like 36 GB.


thanks

Is the server is working, insert only one 72 Gb HDD and it will mirror it, after that you can remove the original 32 GB and install the other 72GB hdd. After that you can use the unused space to extend the array
