Online Hard disk Mirroring.... is it possible

Hi! I just want to know if the lastest technology in Proliant DL 360 servers allow a new hard drive to to added to the server running on a single hard disk and configure it online to be a mirror of the existing one.

Incase you have the Existing Hard Dirve connected to Smart Array you can add another Hard Drive and migrate to Raid 1 from Raid 0.

If you do not have Hardware Raid controller,software mirroring depending on OS is another option.

Assuming you use integrated Smart Array 6i controller - yes, it can be done via Array Configuration Utility (ACU), on-line RAID level migration.
