Adding 2 more drives.
« on: October 17, 2013, 04:11:37 am »
I would like to know if my thinking is correct :).

I have the following Config..

3 x  DRU x 2TB.
1 x  PPU  x 2TB

I would like to add more of my old 1 TB drives.
so i was thinking that if i add the 1TB as a new DRU
and my other 1TB drive add it to the PPU 

effectively giving me 1TB in my PPU and also 1TB extra on my DRU.

Please let me know if this is the correct way.

Your PPU needs to be the largest capacity drive(s) in the array. So adding a 1TB PPU would only give you half of the parity required for the rest of the array. You'll want to add the 1TB drives as DRU, and get another 2TB if you want another PPU.
