Drive Upgrade

i'm planning to upgrade the Logical Drive 2 with 146Gb drives. What is the best way of doing it. the current configuration of the server is as below
Ml-570, Array Cont. 6402 cage1= 72*2(raid1) Logical drv1) and Cage 2= 72*6(raid5),logical Drv2). The OS is on logical drv1. I want to upgrade the logical drive 2.

Re: Drive Upgrade

Depends on the ime you have. You can replace them one at a time, allowing the data to rebuild each time and at the end expand the partition into the added apce
Backup the data, remove the drives, delete the RAID configuration, install the new drives, reconfigure the RAID5 and restore the data to it.
