Can it be done ... well.
(For the record, I did not set this server up.)
In my server there are 4 disks. 3 of them are in a software RAID5, and 1 has the OS installed. I want to buy a RAID controller, 4 new HDs and set up a hardware RAID5. If possible, I'd like to just image the current setup, and use it to build my new one.
My questions are: Can I image a 3 disk RAID5 to 4 disk RAID5? Are there problems with this? What is considered best practice for your OS. To have it on a separate disk like it currently is, or to install it on the RAID5?
Thank you. I can clarify anything. I'm not sure what other info might be pertinent.
Edit - I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2.
