Expanding RAID5 Array


B

Brad Reichert

I've got a Compaq Proliant ML370 server with 3 18GB drivers in a RAID5
array. The Array is partitioned into 2 logical drives. I want to add
another drive to the Array. How do I go about adding the space to 1 of the
current drives? Do I just pop it in? Will it automatically show up as free
space in Computer Management that can be assigned to a drive?

Thanks,

Brad

Check the Array Configuration Utility documentation how to correctly add
the disk to your current container.

When the free space shows up, use diskpart.exe to extend your data volume,
see this MS Knowledge Base article:
