Expansion RAID on Smartarray B140i

Hi

I have HP DL 180 G9 with HPE B140i smart array.

Current configuration contains below

Array A - 1 Logical Drive Raid -5 with  5 identical SATA 4TB drive.

Can I add a drive to RAID 5 and expand the RAID?

Could you please help me?

Regards

Hello,

Please follow the below documents.

HPE ProLiant DL180 Generation9 (Gen9) ( Page No 6)

Adding drives

You can add hard drives to a system at any time if you do not exceed the maximum number of drives that the controller supports. You can then build a new array from the added drives.If the hard drives that you intend to add to the system are configured into logical drives, you must meet certain conditions before adding the hard drives to the system. For more information, see "Moving hard drives and arrays

 (on page 20)."

NOTE: You should have the complete data backup before doing this activity or add any hard drive in the existing logical drive.

As well as server performance will be slow while complete this activity
