DL360 Drive mirror

Hello, have new DL360 G3 with 2003 server installed on single drive. Adding a second drive and wonder if I can simply mirror it using ACU utilities or if creating mirror will wipe out contents of disk and require me to reinstall OS? Any other options? Thank you

Don

Re: DL360 Drive mirror

If you create mirror from array controller, you use all data on disk. Use mirror from OS or backup all data, create array/logical disk and restore oprating system.

Re: DL360 Drive mirror

If you launch ACU and you see ARRAY A with one physical Drive (one Logical drive)
All what you have to do:
1. Highlight Array A and Expand is: add New Drive in
2. Highlight logical drive and Extend with Unused space migrate at same time from RAID 0 to 0 + 1.
3. Save and Exit
4. You at Mirrored Set.

Re: DL360 Drive mirror

Thank you very much. So the ACU should already see the drive as a logical array correct?

Re: DL360 Drive mirror

Yes Don in DL360 G3 you have 5i controller by default, and all configuration & O/S load can be done only if you create Array, what you have right now is Array A with Single logical drive. Hardware intelligent enough to not destroy your data and make mirror to second drive, main point is to keep Firmware up to date
