RE: Array Expansion on Compaq DL360 (G1)



Roald
On DL360 you can install only 2 HD.
So You said that previously you had 2 HD 9GB and now you have installaed 2x36 GB HD.
I think that you have already performed the Back-up of the data form the 2x9 GB HD and make the restore on the 2x36 GB HD.


If this is your configuration the only way to resolve your problem is destroy the logical volume (9 GB) and recreate the new volume (36 GB).

Thanks. Checked it out now, and it seems it is not possible to expand the
array. I have to delete it and then make a new one. I thought it was a
similar HP-server that I did this with in Windows, but it was probably a
server with a better RAID-controller.

Well well, seems I have to backup and restore. Not sure if i bother about
that, but thanks for your help anyway :-)
