Online data migration beetween 2 RAID-5 on the same SmartArray P400_512MB BBWC

Hi there.

 

I have Proliant DL 380 G5 with 8 bays of 2.5" HDDs. I have installed:

 

  • SmartArray P400_512MB BBWC controller
  • 5x 73GB configured as RAID-5 (lets call it RAID_A)
  • 3x 300GB configured as RAID-5 (RAID_B)
  • all above drives are connected to the same P400

 

RAID_A on 73GB's drives is small - 292GB of logical data, RAID_B is bigger - 600GB of logical data. I need more space for data from RAID_A.

 

So is there any option to on-line migrate data between RAID_A and RAID-B on the same P400 Smart Array with 512MB cache BBWC ? If so - what is procedure ?

Because I tried to look for technical documenation and it was described ony on-line expansion and migrating RAID, but beetween 2 hardware controlers. Actualy I plan to migrate data on the same controler.

 

Thanks in advance for any ideas !
