I have a HP ProLiant DL360p Gen8 server. It has 8 drive bays with only 6 being used in a RAID1 config.

Can I add an additional 2 drives to the empty bays hot and the HP Smart Array Controller will configure them automatically into the RAID and they'll appear as one logical drive or do I have to power down the server and configure them manually in the HP Intelligent Provisioning utility like I did with the original 6 drives?


You can do this live with the HP Smart Storage Administrator utility for your operating system.

The process is called an array transformation.
