    Adding additional drive to ESXi 4.1 Datastore on Dell PowerEdge R710

    CorporIT Novice

      Greetings,

       

      We currently have a Dell PowerEdge R710 with 6 direct-attached SAS disks configured in a RAID-1/RAID-5 configuration. One disk is configured as a global hotspare. I would like to add this hotspare disk into the RAID-5 array, where some VMs are living, to recover additional space. Has anyone been successful with doing this? Is the only way via the PERC BIOS management utility?

       

      Thanks!
