At the moment, I have a Intel SR2500 with 5 disks running at home. 4 of the disks aren't used at the moment due to maintenance-reasons.
Because it's an expeiment-laboratory-machine where I can try everything, I thought of something:
At the time being, I have no RAID (Except a Linux LVM Software RAID-0).
My disk-controller is capable of creating a hardware-layer RAID-5 at which I'd use 4 of my disks and Nr5 as spare.
Now I wanted to know: Is there any possibility that I can "migrate" my system to the RAIDed configuration, or isn't this possible?
Do I have to wipe everything, create RAID, set up the new system and re-import settings, or is there another, easyer way to do this?
