Need Basic Help w/- Reconfiguring Array

Hi Folks!

 

I've got a DL380 G7 w/16 disks that I'd like to re-configure. Specifically, I need to reclaim some of the disks so that they can be used for a different logical disk. I'm having a hard time getting my head around this so any help would be appreciated :-)

 

Can this be done? How would I go about this? My existing configuration is below;

 

Array Status OK

Array A

Drive Type SAS

 

Logical Drive(s) / Local OS Access Name

Logical Drive 1 (350.0 GB, RAID 60 - NPG: 2)   \\.\PhysicalDrive0

Logical Drive 2 (2.9 TB, RAID 60 - NPG: 2)         \\.\PhysicalDrive1

 

Physical Drives

 300 GB 2-Port SAS Drive at Port 2C : Box 1 : Bay 1

 300 GB 2-Port SAS Drive at Port 2C : Box 1 : Bay 2

Re: Need Basic Help w/- Reconfiguring Array

You will need to delete the Luns and configure new. Though LUNS can expanded, there is no option to reduce size/remove disks. You can view more about the same in below document.
