Server has Smart Array E200 RAID controller with 8x 146GB SAS 10k drives:
I have two logical drives. First set is RAID5 with 3 drives and second set RAID5 with 5 drives.
Is there a way to merge these two sets into one? I don't mind loosing data on the 5 drives so I can just delete that set and attempt to add the drives to the first set.
The main reason for this is that for some reason I can't run all 8 drives and have two RAID5 arrays. One of the logical drives always fails with one drive. It is either the 3 and 4 drives or 2 and 5 drives. It almost seems like the controller does not support 2 RAID5 arrays.
