Expand Raid 5 System

2019-09-24, 9:35 AM

I wanna expand the size of the existing RAID 5 System on the x3500 M4 Server.  On the server is the VMWare Hypervisor installed.

 

I tried over the WebBios and changed the old 300GB HDD with 600GB harddisk. The disks are online, but the size are not changed. How i can expand to the new size of the hdd? Is it possible? 

 

Is there any GUI Software available, where i can manage the Raid System over VMWare or in VM Windows Server 2012?

 

Thanks a lot for any suggestions and help....

Charles

Hi Charles

 

Please refer the ServeRAID-M SAS Software User Guide section 4.14.6 Expanding a Virtual Drive to increase the size of a virtual drive to occupy the remaining capacity in a drive group.

For VMWare, you can use StorCLI command under command line window to manage the RAID controller, please refer section 6.6.5.11 Virtual Drive Expansion Commands  for virtual drive expansion.

Hi Charles

 

May I ask if you install RAID management tool and manage RAID on your server successfully?
