Modify RAID 5 Array with Gen-8 Server


Modify RAID 5 Array with Gen-8 Server


i have 3 questions.
1 - my raid 5 array contains 5 harddisk with 300 GB. I want to add another harddisk (6 devices)
Do the array controller increase the capacity of the array WITHOUT loose the data?

2 - Same situation as 1. I change step by step all disks to 600 GB.
Old Array has 5 * 300. Does the controller increase to 5 * 600 WITHOUT loose the data? 

3- Same situation as 2.  When the controller doesnt increase the capacity, can I create a second Array?
