SCSI Hard Disk Upgrade

HI All;

I hope you can help me pls.

I have a DL380 G4 with 6 x 36GB 15K disks;

Disk 0 and 1: are configured for RAID 1 running Linux Red Hat
Disk 2,3,4 and 5 rae configured in RAID 5.

I would like to upgrade Disks 0 and 1 from 36GB to 72GB and Disks 2,3,4 and 5 from 36GB to 300GB.

I have the disks already but i dont now to to perform the upgrade. I read in some where that i just need to replace one disk at the time, wait until it is rebuilt and that is it, but i am not sure.

Can you share some light on this simple issue, pls.

Re: SCSI Hard Disk Upgrade


If you have hardware raid, you should be able to perform the upgrade one disk at a time. Give the raid array time to rebuild the data before switching out the second disk.

This only works if you have hardware raid set up to raid 1.

As a precaution, back up the entire system before proceeding.
