ML370 G3, add more disks

Hello!

I wonder if it's possible to add more discs without having to reinstall the operating system or something like that.
I have 3x18.2Gb U320 SCSI 15k discs. There's room for more :)

Can I add one bigger disk?
Regards!

Sounds great!

Is it possible to add two new and bigger disks and have some raid functionality on them?

I could have my 3x18.2 just for the operating system and other two for my webserver?

Re: ML370 G3, add more disks

I'm new to this world. In Device Information I can find following information under SCSI and RAID controllers.

1."Compaq 64Bit/66MHz Dual Channel Wide Ultra3 SCSI Adapter"

2."Compaq 64Bit/66MHz Dual Channel Wide Ultra3 SCSI Adapter"

3."Smart Array 532 Controller"


I hope it's not to hard to add more disk to the server.

Do you know anything about

I think you are using 532 controller, you can verify that opening array configuration utility or Array diagnostic utility

- no it is pretty easy

- No I have not heard about that company

Sorry for not giving you points before. I did not knew that it was possible.

Thanks for the help. I will soon order some disks and try to do something good with them :)
