HP Proliant DL20 Gen9 - Create a Raid 1


In advance, sorry for my english.

I'd like to create a Raid 1 on a ProLiant DL20 to assure a continuity of service. A produciton system is already installed on this server, I've made a backup of all my VMs but I want to reduce my downtime as much as possible.

My question is, can I create a Raid 1 with the HP smart storage without erasing my HDD ? I'm new with the HP products and I don't want to do any mistake.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: HP Proliant DL20 Gen9 - Create a Raid 1



what is your current config?

How many HDDs?

What type of storage controller is installed?

Which operating system version?

Is the OS currently installed on HDD or any SD/USB flash drive? 

Thank you
