I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 installed on a system with RAID1 setup which has several services running like Active Directory, etc.. It has 500 GB hard disk as of now.
Now we want to upgrade the server with more RAM & 2 TB RAID1 Hard disk setup, and we plan to use the same server machine to host virtual machines using hyper-v that will host OSes required for other purposes and some of them will have docker as well.
While this is easy to setup, the real issue we are facing is how to physically upgrade RAID1 500 GB drive to 2TB drive and still preserve the current Windows Server OS & its services setup?
What could be best strategy for performing this upgrade and what are best tools available to do this safely and quickly, without losing any of current data and setup that we have?
Update: RAID Controller is Intel Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA RAID Controller. Currently HDD in use is ST3500312CS from Seagate.
