NSS3000 Raid5 add storage?

Hallo Community,

I am operating a NSS3000 with 3 1TB HDDs in a Raid5 array.

Checking the documentation I read:

Available disk drives appear in the listing. Click

Add

to add the disk drive to the array.

If the disk drive is added to a functional array, the disk  drive becomes a hot spare. ..

I could not find a description how to add another 1TB HDD as part of the array. Is tis not possible?

Thanks for your tipps!

NSS3000 Raid5 add storage?

Hi,

Its not possible to add it as Active Hard drive to the RAID. You can only add as a spare.

Thanks,

NSS3000 Raid5 add storage?

So this means there is no way to increase the storage capacity of a RAID5?

What is our suggestion to get to an array with 4x1TB HDDs?

Thank you!

Grupo,

You would have to back all data up to external drive if you don’t have a copy, then delete and recreate your volume/RAID. Hopefully the NSS6000 is not the only data storage point. In a disaster recovery situation, it's best to have 3 points that contains your data. Two device’s onsite that contains your information and a copy of that information in an offsite storage location. This is a proper disaster recovery scenario as you probably know.

You will have to backup all data to another storage point, delete your RAID and recreate RAID on the NSS6000.Now move your data back onto current NSS6000.

Our new units do give you the ability to add a drive to your RAID. Our new units have a ton of new features.
