I have a 2 x 146GB SAS in RAID1. I bought 2 more, same specs drive. I am on a production server. I have a P410 with 512MB cache, but no battery. I can afford a downtime.
My questions are:
- Can I load ACU boot CD and add the new drives, in offline mode?
- After I added the drives to the array, can I migrate the RAID level from 1, to 10, offline?
- Is my data gonna be safe?
I still don't get it if P410 without a battery, which is needed for online migration and other operations, will allow me to do this offline, as I have no battery for the cache.
Any help will be appreciated! Thanks a lot!
