Specifically in a Perc730p in a Dell server.
It has a RAID 6 of 8TB drives, and all the bays are full. The volume on the RAID is over 80%full and rising (that has mostly camera footage not Ignition) steadily. I could copy to an external drive, and reconfigure the RAID with larger drives, but think there should be a simpler way. Being RAID 6, I’d think one could replace the drives one at a time, let it rebuild, and replace the next, next…then reconfigure the size when they’re all 16TB drives - without too much risk. Considering rebuild time, maybe not actually easier though.
Also I’m not even certain whether the Perc730 would allow it once all the drives are the same size again, but I’d think that it would recognize that all the drives are the new size.
A DAS might be an option to gain space too, but doesn’t seem as clean as expanding the existing storage.
Any suggestions? Thank you!
