Add 2 news disks on DL385G5

Hi,
I have (in emergency) to had 2 disk in my DL385G2 box. It's an Ingres production machine, and ofcourse no reboot permit. With the 2 news disks have to create a new mirror FS of around 40Go. How to do that ?
Is there a difference between SAS and Serail SCSI disks (P/N 432320-001)

Thx,
Eric

Hi Eric,

You can use the online Array Configuration Utility to create a new RAID1. You should have the ACU already installed if you have installed the Proliant Support Pack.

What is your OS?

SAS = Serial Attached SCSI

432320-001 = 146.0GB hot-plug Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard drive - 10,000 RPM, 2.5-inch form factor

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Shiraj Fernando.

Hi Eric,

If your hard drives are connected to an HP Smart Array controller, you should be able to pop the drives in and use the Array Configuration Utility to create a new Array.

There would be no need to reboot the server for this procedure as the p/n you have mentioned are hot-plug SAS hard disks. Using this you can create a hardware mirror up to 146 GB.

Good luck!

Thanks all. The Origin of the problem is HP used on this disks the 2 names SAS and Serial SCSI. But I test the Blade & DL395DL are the sames.
