PowerEdge R720 Raid10 - adding Hot Swap drive

I've never had to do this before. Can someone tell me if
the hot swap drive can be added to the Raid 10 config after it has been set up without it and the OS has been installed? Controller is PERC H710 mini

Thanks a lot

RE: PowerEdge R720 Raid10 - adding Hot Swap drive

Yes a hot spare can be added or removed at any point after an array is created, with or without an OS installed, on the newer LSI based controllers.

Dell has a pretty good support forum for servers....
