Proliant dl 380 linux array expansion

I do not know if anyone has tried this but here goes. We have a Proliant dl 380 g4 running Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 3. There are currently two 36 g u320 drives setup as a raid 10 that have the os running on them. We need to upgrade these drives. This is what I want to do. Take one of the drives out and replace it with a newer larger drive. Let the raid drive repair itself. Once this is done I will pull out the other old drive, put another larger drive in and once again let the raid repair itself. I think this will work but I know that only the original drive space will still be allocated. Is there a way to resize or expand the logical drive raid 10 setup in the ACU to allocate the new space without destroying the original filesystem? I have done this with Windows 2000.

Thanks

Hi Eric,

check page 50 & 51 :

Be sure you have PSP or at least ACU & ACU CLI installed and follow the guide commands.
This should do your jog, hope it helps

Re: Proliant dl 380 linux array expansion

Do I have to use the CLI or can I just use the GUI. Is this Linux related?
