I have to increas an Raid 5 Array 270GB (3x 146GB SAS) with an additional 146GB SAS hard disk.

On the Server runs a Vmware ESXI 4.0 with two Win 2008 Virtual Machines. The Server (HP Proliant ML350 G6) has a Smart Array Controller P410i with Firmware 1.62.

Can I simple expand the raid 5 Array with the HP SmartCD and the program HP Array Configuration Utility (ACU).? Is anything else to do after rebooting?


Absolutely. Just pop in the HP SmartCD and walk through the RAID setup. If the disk is found, you simply add it into the existing array....reboot....done!
