Downsizing Disks

I have a DL360 with 36GB Mirrored disks, data size is only approx 9GB.

One of the drives has failed, and i was wondering is there any way to replace it with an 18GB then rebuild the data and replace the other 36GB with another 18GB.

I have a lot of spare 18's and no 36's btw

Hi Mark,

This is not possible. The controller will not event attmept to rebuild on the smaller drive. It must be replaced with a drive of at least equal size.
