The documentation for my HP Proliant DL360 G7 says I can hot-swap phsyical disks in existing RAID sets. It doesn't say anything about inserting new physical disks and creating new logical disks while it's running. I've got one disk slot used, 3 open, and 3 disks ready to be added.*
I have the ACU utility, hpacucli, installed on Ubuntu Server. It would make sense that I can insert the disks, create new logical disks with hpacucli, format them, mount them, and use them. But I'm a newbie with HP servers and don't want to do anything dangerous. Anyone know if this is safe?
* These are consumer-grade SSDs, ADATA USA Premier SP550 960GB (I need good speed/price, not reliability). The one disk I have running right now is the same exact SSD, so I'm sure these will work in my server.
