adding hdd to DL380

Hi I am very new to server technology and we have Proliant DL380 in our office which is used to store files. Now what I want to know is if I can add additional hard drives to the server, all the six bays already have HDD in them, and if I can, how do I check if it is raid 5 or not.

Re: adding hdd to DL380

Open from Programs COMPAQ/HP system tools highlight Array A all Drives that assigned to Array A will Flash at front. Click more info from right panel and see description for Configuration RAID. Help menu also show difference between icons if Online spare used and it will say from more info. If all slots used, recommendation will be to replace one drive at time, see Upgrading Hard Drive Capacity page 95
