Thanks Peter and Rebecca. That information was very informative in regard to
expanding the disk size during Win2K3 upgrade.
But, here is my another scenario. This Server has 2 x 17GB HDD which is
I plan to add another 17GB HDD and it looks confusing to me how am I going
to do this with with IBM ServeRAID Manager which ofcourse is a question to
ask IBM Server Support Team.
If it was a RAID 5 with 3 x 17GB it would have been easier for me to add
another 17GB and combine it with the existing RAID 5 by creating another
ARRAY. Now, when I add another 17GB to this existing 2 x 17GB Mirrored
disks, I am just wondering what I will be doing? A big ????
And there is no provision for new hardware and the customer wants it to do
it in the existing hardware itself. I know its easy to rebuild it rather than
figuring out, but I am used to BINDVIEW tool for migrating user accounts, and
not ADMT so, that is where my whole issue is.
I appreciate your response.
