Hi,

Use ACU then use the extend option to increase the hdd space on server.

Hey Stella,

just be aware that depending on the size of your existing array and the size that you wish it to grow by, the operation could take quite some time. According to some HP documentations that I have seen array expansion could take 15 minutes per GB.

I would also do a full backup before I try this, ofcourse!

Good luck, dont forget to assign points:)

Ciao!

Also remember that extending the actual "disk" on the RAID-controller doesn't automatically extend the partition in Windows. You need third-party application for this OR could use DISKPART.EXE. See more information regarding this tool here:
