HDD replacement with greater capacity in HP-UX

Hi all,

Can anyone guide me through the procedure for replace 4 HDD with 4 new HDD with bigger capacity in rx2660

Data will be destroyed is not a problem, as I will restore it from other server.

Thank you.

Re: HDD replacement with greater capacity in HP-UX

If you want to restore a backup anyway, then delete the logical drives, swap the disks and create new logical drives.


Hope this helps!

No need to delete PV and RAID 5 configuration?

Re: HDD replacement with greater capacity in HP-UX

IMHO it will work if you shutdown the server, pull all the disks, insert the new disks and start from scratch (creating arrays, logival drives, restore your backup).


Hope this helps!
