increase the size of a RAID 10 on RMS3CC080

Is it possible to increase the size of RADI 10 from 4 disks, if you add 4 more?

I can not find such an option in the Intel 2 web console (the megaraid storage manager)

Without destroying the current array.

Hello Amigo83,

 

 

Thank you for reaching out, I've reviewed your question and as it is right now, Raid technology does not support Online Capacity Expansion in spanned arrays such as RAID 10, RAID 50, or RAID 60.

 

 

However, as a work around it is possible to back up the data, create a new array with all the drives and restore the data to the new array afterwards, it takes a little longer but it does the trick.

 

 

For further reference please check:

I hope this answer your question if so or if you need anything else please let me know, I'll stay tuned to your comments.
