Re: ML350 Server


before you start to expand the space on HW raid, you should backup your system and data.

them you could try to expand the raid5 on HW level, ( check with the documentation if its possible ), and if you have Windows 2008 server, go to server ==> manage ==> storage management ( all drives are dybanic ) so you will be able to resize online the C-drive.

on this page is detailed info about your RAID controller.

* Online Stripe Size Migration (with BBWC upgrade)
* Mirror splitting and recombining
* Unlimited Global Online Spares Assignment
* User Selectable Expand and Rebuild Priority

and because you have raid5 alredy configured :

RAID 5 (Distributed Data Guarding)
NOTE: The 128MB BBWC upgrade is required to enable RAID 5 support on the Smart Array E200i.

you should be able to expand the raid.
