How to migrate Raid0 local disk to RAID1 ?

Each node in my CL380 has 1 physical local disk, configured as follows :
C:\ - 2GB,NTFS,contains NT4.0 operating system (boot) RAID 0
D:\ - 6GB,NTFS,contains Oracle RDMS executables RAID 0

I would like to add a 9.1GB hot plug disk to each node and migrate from RAID 0 to RAID 1 mirroring.
How should I go about doing this exactly ?

Cheers,
Tom Robbrecht

Do you have an array in each of these nodes? If not, you must be using software RAID 0... Not easy to "migrate".

I have the local disks on the Compaq integrated smart array controller, so yes, they are in an array.

- First BACKUP the node.
- I have not done this on a CL380, but I have done in two DL380 that were shipped with a single disk (Raid 0 by default). We added the second disk and created a Raid 1 for the existing disk (ACU). It worked fine!

Regards.
