I'm new to TekTips and I'm a little rusty with HP Management Suite so please bear with me if I'm missing any information.
A client of ours has a DL360-G5Smart Array P400iRAID Controller Firmware 2.103 x 146GB Drives in a RAID5 (Contaning Drives c:\, D:\ & E:\)
The client wishes to increase the amount of space available and I believe that this can be achieved by adding additional disks and then Expand Array/Expand Logical Drive.
Given the above information can you offer any advice as to whether I am correct or not?
One item I have noticed is references to Battery Backed Write Cache. How can I check if this is OK on my clients server?
Reading the HP spec indicates that the P400i has BBWC as standard but using the HP Management Suite > Storage > Array Controller Information shows Battery Status as "Not Present".
Am I looking in the right place.Any pointers/advice will be greatly appreciated.
Feel free to ask for more information if that helps with any replies.
Many thanks in advance.
