Re: How to migrate stiping to mirror

Hi,

If we have the smart array controller with BBWC(battery backed write cache) installed, the online migration from RAID 0(striping) to RAID 1(mirroring) is possible. Firmware should be updated and data to be backed-up before making any changes.

To verify BBWC status: Open Array Configuration Utility - Select Controller - More Information. Look for array accelerator status and battery count.

DL380 G3 has default integrated SA5i+ controller.
