HPE disk configurator

Morning all.

I have an ML350 G8 which currentlly has 3 450GB drives configured into a raid 5 array. I would like to increase the second logical drive by 250 GB .Are there any drive configuration utilities I can use to check how many additonal disks may be required for this? Also will I need to delete and recreate the secondary drive or could I just expand the drive once the additonal drive is added to the raid 5 array?

Thanks for the help

You can use HPE Smart Storage Administrator (HPE SSA) utility to check existing RAID configuration.

Once new drive added to existing Array,  you can expand the existing logical drive size without delete and recreating the logical drive.
