I believe if you stop/restart RAID it will configure a set of 8 and a set 
of 4.

        Subject:        9406-S30 RAID config question


Hello all,
another "what if" question:
configuration is: 9406-S30 with 10x 4 GB (6907, two byte disks)
and a 6532 SPD RAID-5 controller, currently configured as one RAID-set.
Slots available for disks are 12 maximum in base unit.
The 6532 is specified as capable of having 4 to 10 drives in one RAID-set
and being able to have four RAID-sets attached.
When adding another two 4GB drives of same type as above, do I have
to form a second set, or just add them and they are running "side by side" 
?
When forming two sets of, lets say, 8 disks in set 1 and 4 disks in set 2,
is it the right way to go to DST and stop RAID, select the first 8 disks 
to
make up set 1, then start protection, then the same with the rest for set 
2 ?

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance !

Regards from germany, Philipp Rusch
