Yes. you could add it on to your 2*36.4Gb raid 0 set and add some redundancy or you could create a new array.

Re: Upgrading ml370 SCSI drives

i have put the disk to the hotswap slot but the o/s do not regnorize the disk
how is the right way to intall the disk?
the o/s is win200sbs ?

i must reboot the server and continue the instalation with the compaqs smartareay cd?

if i add the 36gb disk to raid0 i think i have problems with the capacity because the ather disk on raid0 is 72 gb and the 64gb is data

can i add the disk just as a scsi disk?

the computer manager regnorize 32gb as basic
and 72gb as dinamic

You need to configure your extra disc before you can start using it. Download the Array Configuration Utility from the following link and install.

You won't be able to add you 36Gb drive into an array together with you 72Gb drive without losing half of the largest drive's capacity.

Re: Upgrading ml370 SCSI drives

i think the only solution is to make a new array and add the 36gb disk standalone
can you help me to do it?
thanks

Have you installed the ACU (from the link above)?
if yes, put in your drive, open the program, hit "create array", set the RAID level to 0, create a logical drive on the array.

two comments:
-These RAID levels are made to have redundancy in your system, so you shouldnt have any RAID 0's.

-There is a manual for this, I advise you read it.
