We have an existing Server (Dell PowerEdge R630 - Perc H703P Raid Controller ) running VMWare host 5.5. The server has 2 existing Raid 1 arrays. We would like to add an additional Raid 10 array (4 HD around 500GB each) in the slots. I have already inserted the new drives in the available bays. The server sees the new HDs as foreign.
My question is How do I add these new 4 HDs into a new VD (Virtual Drive) Raid 10 without blowing away or deleting the current VDs (2 existing) on the system? I want to keep the existing VDs and data in tact and just create a new Datastore for VMWare.
When I went to bios and to set up a new VD... that option ("Create New VD") was greyed out. I only saw the option to import.
