Expand disk space for Proliant DL380 Gen9 with Smart Array P440ar

We have Proliant DL380 Gen9 server, Would like to ask, How we can expand the disk space in secondary drive without data loss? We have the configuration as below:

Running Smart Array P440ar Controller with 2 x 450GB SSD SFF [RAID 1 configuration]drive #1, and 4 x 960GB SSD SFF [RAID 10 configuration].drive #2. The storage bay still have 2 available SFF hard disk slot.

Would like to ask, Is it possible to directly add 2 x 960GB SSD SFF new hard disk to expand the drive #2 RAID 10 configuration without having loose and data? Kindly please help to advise.

Hello,

Please follow the steps before extending the raid.

  1. Update firmware RAID controller
  2. . Install the latest version of SSA for Windows
  3.  Ensure that you are starting the latest version of SSA cause the old version is staying. (or uninstall the old version before)
  4. Enjoy expanding your RAID5
  5. Please boot the server with the run SSA.

Open the SSA, select configure--> select the controller--> select the array you wish to extend and then click on "manage data drives" on the right side in the "actions" menu. The possible extend option will show up.
