Pinned topic Change Raid Level in situ

‏2013-05-13T09:19:38Z | raid5 x3550


I have a few server which have been incorrectly configured before arriving, the server has been delivered without the Raid 5 option, we are now trying to resource these but I wanted to install the OS's and wondered if it was possible to install them as on Raid1 then convert the Raid1 to Raid5 once the options arrive.

does anyone know if this is possible? I obviously don't want to install the OS if the array is nuked when converting, if such a thing is even possible.

    Need to know what kind of raid adapter you are using.  Most adapters do allow for a drive migration/changing of raid levels.
