I have a Dell Server with 6 1TB Drives in it. Currently the drives are configured into two RAID groups:
Group 1: 2 x 1TB in RAID 1 (1TB Usable) C: Drive (Windows 2008 r2 Boot Partition NTFS)
Group 2: 4 x 1TB in RAID 10 (2TB Usable) E: Drive (NTFS)
I would like to change the RAID Configuration to
Group 1: 6 x 1TB in RAID 5 (5TB Usable) with 2 NTFS partitions on it.
What is the best way to do this?
I am currently thinking of this:
- Use clonezilla to image each of the partitions separately.
- Reconfigure the RAID
- Use GParted to create the partitions
- Use Clonezilla to restore the partitions
Is this the best way? Or is there an easier way?
