I have an HP DL360 G8 with a Smart Array P420i with 3 physical drives, currently setup RAID 0, I would like to migrate to RAID 5.
When using the Smart Storage GUI when I attempt to migrate the drive I am only offered RAID 0 and the option of changing Stripe size.
In the Smart Storage Admin CLI if I issue
=> ctrl slot=0 ld 1 modify raid=5
I get a response of
Error: "raid=5" is not a valid option for logicaldrive 1
So far I can't figure our why I'm not offered the RAID5 options, 3 drives are in the current RAID0 array
What do I need to do to migrate this server to RAID 5 without a reinstall please.
