ML 110 RAID upgrade

Hi all

I have a ML110 server with 1 sata HD 160GB
The controller at his moment is not configured as RAID

Now I have installed an other sata HD 160GB

Can I use the first HD as source and so create a new raid array with both disks?


Thanks

Simone

Re: ML 110 RAID upgrade

Hi Simone.

The short answer is no since the RAID manager will repartition the disk and add a small partition to keep the RAID configuration on it.

However there may be third party applications that will be able do it for you by moving data around.

The only other alternative is to look at software RAID, although that is slighly less fault tolerant.
