Hi,

It seems that we need to upgrade our server..
there is no enough space on the o.s. disk (1gb left)
same for the data disk (0,5 gb left)
I just want to replace the old hdd with a new, faster and bigger hdd.
Do i need 3 new hdd ? If yes, what's next ?
How can i resize the C: partition to 40GB ?
What's the best way to do the upgrade ? Let me know !

Thanks in advance !

Hi,

Anyone ?

More than likely on boot up you'll see the RAID controller load up as well , and will tell you to press <CTRL+ something> to access the raid controller, Once in there you will be able to manage your arrays.
This is how Dell PowerEdge servers work. There may be slight variations, but this has been my experience.
