I have Dell PE r510 with RAID5 configuration. The virtual disk in RAID5 is running low in disk space. I want to add a physical disk to existing RAID5 without losing data.
Insert new physical disk 0:0:5. It shows state as Foreign.
In RAID5 controller, select Foreign Configuration Operations…
Click Clear to clear the Orphan Disk 0.
After it’s cleared, the state becomes Ready.
In virtual disk 1, select Reconfigure…
Check the box new physical disk 0:0:5. Verify it’s checked on the right side as well.
Virtual Disk 1, reconstructing state.
