Removing a drive



fixed

A few weeks ago I posted a message about replacing and removing drives from
one of my servers and several responses pointed me to using SST and another
option which I do not immediately recall.

 

I am using a 9409-170 2290.  I have a 7102 expansion unit which is not
currently attached and although I do plan on attaching it, I would like to
enable mirroring on the existing first two drives before doing so.  My
problem is this particular machine has three drives.  What I need to do is
move the data off of this drive onto the other two, remove it, and then add
two additional drives to mirror the 2 existing.  After that I will be
attaching the 7102 and expanding the capacity with mirroring.

 

What I have not been able to figure out is exactly what steps I need to take
to move that data off of the third drive onto the first two.

 

 

Drives 1 & 2 are 8GB drives (originally thought they were 4's but was
incorrect) and drive 3 is an 18GB drive.

 

Any help would be appreciated.
