Expand Logical Drive (RAid1) for HP DL 380 G7

Hi All,

 

How do I  Expand Logical Drive  (RAid1) on a  HP DL 380 G7 ?   The array is made up of 2 146GB drives and this is the system "c" partition.  Can I pop in (2) indentical drives and simply expand (and then extend ) the array? Do I need to break the mirror first? Can this be done "hot" with no service interruptions.  The array is on the P410i Embedded Slot.  I saw another post that said a right cache battery is needed to do this. Can I verfiy that i have one from the Array confiuration utility? I basically need   step by step instructions on this  Thanks in advance  .

Hi m8, 

 

Please check first if you have cache and battery available for your array controller. 

Below links could help.
