Best way to create a RAID on already installed OS Gen 10

Hi,

Looking for guidance on how to create a RAID (say RAID 1) on a GEN 10 that has been already installed with an OS.

I'd be looking also to expand the volume to use all the available disks' capacity.

I am thinking the cleanest way is to first configure the server, disks RAID, etc and then install the OS, but would prefer not to wipe out what';s been already installed.

Thanks!

Hello,

Follow the page number 80 from the below link to expand the raid.

HPE Smart Array SR Gen10 Configuration Guide (page number 80)

http://itdoc.hitachi.co.jp/manuals/ha8000v/hard/Gen10/SA/882375-003_en.pdf

OR

From SSA, select your existing array and select Expand Array. Add the new drives.

NOTE: You should have the complete data backup before extend the raid and server performance would be slow while raid expansion.
