Expanding an array

I added an 18gig drive to the server and when I tried to expand the existing array the option didn't show up in the wizard. I'm using a Smart Array 3200 Controller. (I remember this working when I did this to another server) Do I need to create a logical drive instead ?? The only differences between the 2 controllers is the firmware. The server that worked had 4.16 installed and the current one has 4.06.

Re: Expanding an array

Go back to smartstart CD ver 4.8, the last one has a problem that has had the expansion facilities removed as there were corruption issues with 2000. Nt works fine with this. I imagine if you have 2000, you will have to wait for SSD 5.0 or perhaps reconstruct by deleting that recreating the array. Follow all compaqs guidlines if you do this as if the backup tape fails, your out of luck.
