DL 380 expanding array


I have checked the link

and I'd like to do exactly the same thing, substitute a logical drive on a RAID 5 on my DL 380 G3 (I think it is a G3, since it has Pentium III procs).

Currently this logical drive is composed by 3 disks of 36 Gb and I'd like to replace them by 3 ones of 72 Gb.

I have Exchange 2003 databases only stored on that data logical drive. I have read that It could take 15 minutes for each 1 Gb of data. Is the case when is in low or high priority?

the PDF says that only Windows NT, but I guess Windows 2003 Server is also fine, right?

Where can I get the last updates?

Re: DL 380 expanding array


so you think it is a DL380 g3, well more important what is the controller?

if that is a smart array controller follow Michael steps in this thread

I also recommend update the firmware for the controller before do this process

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
