MCS7816-H3, how to add 2nd HDD?

MCS7816-I3 was shipping with one HDD and added 2nd with extra order.

I put the hardware detection DVD but got error message which complaining not support 2*HDD and succeed OS installing with 1*HDD.

How to add 2nd HDD after installing the OS with hardware detection DVD? I guess it's different procedure since it SATA controller.

Thanks in advance,


Re: MCS7816-H3, how to add 2nd HDD?

If you are using an IBM server you will need different procedures. Go to the second to last entry, which contains the instructions:

ACU allows you to migrate RAID for SCSI disk. All you need to do as below:

1. Original Array A with 36GB RAID 0.

2. Slot in the new disk.

3. In ACU highlight the Array A and choose Expand Array and add the new disk.

4. After expand the array, you should able to change your current RAID to 1+0.

Make sure the new disk size id equal or greater than old disk.

There is also the HP reference manual posted -
