I am configuring a Proliant Gen8 microserver and a question came up to mind, that I would love to solve before continuing with setting up the server.
How can I replace an HDD in case of failure and/or upgrade?I am configuring 2 1TB HDDs as RAID 1 that will then become 4-8TB RAID 10 HDDs.
How would I go about the transition? It took me hours to understand every time I touch an HDD the RAID controller needs to reset.
Can I just switch 1 1-TB drive for an 8TB, wait for it to clone the data and do the same with the other? Would it be a bootable drive?
Sorry I am quite new to RAID and servers, hope this makes sense.
