Brought up as a programmer. Now a business owner, professional geek, network guy, etc. When there's time, I like to program for fun, just like when I first started on the TRS-80 Color Computer!

comment RAID 5 drive upgrade
The one drive at a time makes sense, but what happens when I reach the 5th - 8th drives which won't have replacements. I am trying to leave room for future expansion. I have never had to remove a drive from an HP configuration (it has worked on other manufacturers), will it allow me to do that?

@Hennes Thanks - that approach is a bit too risky in this case. I prefer the incremental approach, not to mention that we have to keep the server running throughout the process as much as possible. A full restore would require too much down time.

@MDMarra I appreciate your answer. I realize my post did not say that. We have generally not run into issues with arrays failing, so doing a forced fail for this purpose is a bit scary and we are trying to make sure we cover all the details.

@MDMarra If we replaced one drive at a time, waited for the rebuild, wouldn't that maintain data consistency then? Is there a better way to do this?
