Expanding hardware raid
As i was runnign short of space i have expanded my raid1 array from 36gb to 146gb by inserting 1 146gb disk, waiting for a rebuild then inserting the other 146gb disk. All looks fine, scsi bios reports the new array size but both fdisk and parted are still reading as 36gb (i guess from the partition table).
How can i refresh these values so that they can see the rest of the space so i can start partitioning it?
Backup the Data
break the Raid
repartition the drives as 146GB
recreate the raid Array
restore the data
Unless your Hardware RAID controller supports RAID expansion on the fly, in which case consult the manual for your controller on how to accomplish that task.
cheers mate, you were right, hardware issue....forgot to expand the raid in the hp utility...doh!
Gotta love the easy fix, and TRUE HARDWARE BASED RAID controllers..
Glad you got it all worked out. :)
