ProLiant DL380 G7 - expand RAID5 by adding new disk

[ Edited ]

Hi to all!

 

server ProLiant DL380 G7

RAID5

Smart Array P410i in Embedded Slot

1 Logical Drive 700 GB

6x146 GB SAS disks

 

I want to add two more 146Gb disks.

Can I expand RAID5 logical drive using HP Array Configuration Utility (64-bit) online without turning off the server?

 

On this logical drive I have:

C:\hyper-v server 100GB

D:\hyper-v machine01 500GB

E:\hyper-v machine02 100GB

 

Can I extend then my E:\ drive to new addidtional space from 100GB to 200GB?

Can I extend then hyper-v machine02 ?

 

Regards

GN

I have added two physical drives.

Now I don't have option to "expand array" from ACU online:

Hello,

 

please check if you have a cache modul installed and a battery for this modul. Without write cache enabled no expansion is available.
