Question by Smart Array HP

Hi !!!
I have a query if possible, I have 2 discs sas in raid 1 +0, I had reached a third party and I would like to make a raid 5 without losing any data on the raid 1 +0, it is possible?
Thanks in advance.


Re: Question by Smart Array HP

You have to do a migration from a mirror to a raid 5.

Migrations can be done as long as you end up with the same size of storage capacity or more. In the case of your mirror you have 1 drive available and in the Raid 5 with 3 drives you will have 2 drives of space.

What controller are you using? you have to check if your controller supports the migration. In any case if it does you should have no problem with your data.
