add more disk spaces for HP ProLiant ML350 Gen10 server

Hello,

I have a HP ProLiant ML350 Gen10 server that has been running well for at least 2.5 years now, but it has come to the point where I need to add more storage space.

Currently there is an existing Smart Array setup with 3 logical drives (C,D,E). I would like to add a new drive into this existing array and add the new space onto an existing logical drive (D).

Firstly, is this possible with the ML350 Gen10? If so, how would I go about doing this? Where can I buy the disk?

Many thanks in advance for any help given.

Hi,

we need to know what Raid Kontroller is installed.

If it is a Pxxx with a Battery Cache Module, you can simply add the same Drive and do an Online extension if there is a Drive Slot free in the Row.

If not,  it's not possible without Backup & Restore.

Providing Screen Shots from iLO > Hardware > Storage will help.

Hi 

For the controller type, we have HPE Smart Array. 

How to insert a screenshot on the post field?

Thanks,

Hello,

 

I would request you share  the SA controller information for further investigation.

 

Please refer page 78 for the details of the supported drives

https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=a00021852enw

 

Please find the Steps to extend logical drive via Smart Storage Administrator

 

>> login to the Smart Storage Administrator 

>> select the controller on the left 

>> select configure 

>> select the Array 

>> click on the logical drive D 

>> select the extend logical drive option ( On the right) 

>> select the maximum size 

>> click OK 

 

Alternatively, please refer page 74, 76 for the instructions to extend logical drive via SSA CLI
