i have a server that runs a raid 5 with 4 146 gb disk and i have add two more disk but i cant extend the array.
And yes i haved called the HP supporten in Sweden but after 5 calls checking everything they say i need to reinstall the server and then run a backup! I askt him if he was joking but he wasen't!!
The thing i have done:
1. got a advance license key for the array manager.
2. bought a new HP 512MB Battery Backed Write Cac and installed.
3. booted on Hp smart start CD , but i still dont hvae the option to extend array..
The only thing i can think of is that i need a batteri for the cach memory:
Anyone have any ide?
Best regards Johan

yes - you do need the battery pack - otherwise the write cache will not be activated and an expansion is not possible
no - yo do NOT need a license for this - definitely NOT
