The PERC6 supports migrating from a single-disk RAID-0 to a 2-disk RAID-1, with the only documented requirement being that you add an additional disk of equal or greater capacity. You will need OMSA (OpenManage Server Administrator) installed to pull this off - I don't believe the PERC BIOS gives an option for RAID type conversions or expansions. If you ...
You have a pretty decent chance of this working, so long as you power down before removing both drives (be sure that it's a "clean" shutdown). The configuration data for a VD is stored on each of its drives (each one gets a copy), and a copy kept locally on the controller. If you follow through with your plan as you've stated it, I expect that it's almost ...
In theory, your plan could work. I haven't attempted this on a H710, but having had to do a similar thing several years ago on a PERC/6i. It was quite the ordeal, and it ended with my having to restore from backups. The PERCs have greatly improved since then, so you may have a better result. Do you have a bare-metal restore image of the volume that will be ...
The disks will be backwards compatible with earlier generation SAS. So the speed would just downshift to 3Gbps. However, since your server and PERC controller are old, it may make sense to find some period-correct SAS disks. Either way, the 2TB disk capacity is also supported. That is the maximum for the controller.
