Dears,

I have cisco ucs server with the below configuration i need to expand the virtual drive but i don't see available storage on webbios, could someone tell me the steps in details.

Server configration:
Total number of hard disks: 6
Total number of drive group: 2
HDD size: 300
Every drive group have one virtual drive configured raid5 with three hard disks.

I added new hard disk with the same size of the rest hard disks and i need to expand any virtual drive with the new hard disk.

The new hard disk status is unconfigured.



Thank you.

Hello Ahmed,

Server model ? RAID controller model ?

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/c/sw/raid/configuration/guide/MegaRAID.html#wp1107097

--------- snip ------------

Drives can be added to a drive group only when there is a single virtual drive present on the drive group. If there are multiple virtual drives present on the drive group, the option to add an extra disk is not available.

--------------------------------

If could provide the details, I will confirm above statement.

Padma
