HPE Drive Exspansion


We have a Prolaint ML150 G9 with a Smart HBA H240 (RAID Mode) this controller has no cache module as its a basic controller.

Our client wants a disk exspansion and we aim to do a offline disk exspansion.

I know with a battery and a cache we could do a online exspansion but with no cache or battery its not possible.

My question is can we do a offline disk expsansion with this controller and no cache or is it being a basic controller this is not possible and we are looking at configuring a new array.

Kind regards

The only solution is to create a new array.

Thanks Erdogan,

Is this HPE's offical stamp on this as the controller is a basic controller model.

I have a feeling it will be, but i will have to rasie the  issue with my operations manager if it is.

From doing investigation i dont think there is a cache module or battery for this controller?
