HD Upgrade

Hi,
We have a Proliant 3000 NT4 server with a Smart 2/P controller. Currently, we are having 3 X 4.3GB HDs running on RAID 5 and we would like to add 2 or 3 more HD to it. What is the best way of doing it. Please advice.
NOTE: Compaq no longer producing 4.3GB HD so we have to use 18GB.

Also, if we would like to swap the old 3 x 4.3GB HD with the new 3 x 18BG HD. What is the best way of doing this upgrade.

Regards,

Doan Le

Re: HD Upgrade

The 4.3 gb drives can be swapped out one at a time with the 18 gb drives , once the drives have been swapped out and the array rebuilt , you can add the additional 18gb drives and expand the array via the Array Configuration Utility .
