Smart Array P212 Raid 0 to RAID 1?

Hello all

I do know what it take to do RAID level migration.

But. On a P212 zer memory, without SAAP.

One disk only.

 

Is it possible to add a drive and migrate to RAID 1 (off-line is ok)?

If so How?

Thank You

No not directly, if you create an mirror set you erase your disk content. Perhaps if you create an image with a drive image tool and restore this image into a newly created Mirror set created with 2 new disks. This way you'll new lose data. 

Kind regards,

RAID migration is possible, but you need a cache module on the controller

Hello Andrew and Jimmy

Thanks to both of you :)

I just had to recheck.

The feature that made me wonder is the off-line spillting and recombining of a mirror. That's a feature I newer have tried.

I will try to see if the customer got compatible cache modules in some decommissioned servers.
