Running out of space on DL380 G4 with Raid1 configuration...

I currently running out of space on my server. It's mirrored with 2 x 36GB drives. I have larger drives available. Is there a way to replace the 36's with 146's? Also, what must I do in Windows 2000 to actual be able to use that space without rebuilding the OS? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,

you can replace the HDD of your mirror set one by one waiting the end of the rebuild process.

after of that, you will see the "usable" space in your array.

you can expand your system partition using a third party tool, such as acronis disk director suite.

bye.
