Reconfiguring or Migrating Virtual Disks
Reconfiguring or migrating a virtual disk (VDs) enables you to increase the capacity or change the RAID level of the virtual disk.
In the PERC BIOS Configuration Utility window, with software RAID S110 and S130 controllers, if a physical disk (SATA SSD or HDD) is removed from a virtual disk and the same physical disk is reinserted (hot plug) into the virtual disk instantly, then the virtual disk state is displayed as Ready or Non RAID (for the PERC S110 and S100) and the physical disk state is displayed as Online. However, if the same physical disk is reinserted after a short delay, then the virtual disk state is displayed as Degraded and the physical disk state is displayed as Ready.
To reconfigure a virtual disk:
Follow these steps
1 Review the information in the Starting and Target RAID Levels for Virtual Disk Reconfiguration and Capacity Expansion section in this document.
2 In the tree view, locate the controller on which the virtual disk resides. Expand the controller object until the Virtual Disks object is displayed.
3 Select the Reconfigure task from the virtual disk’s Tasks drop-down list box and click Execute.
4 Complete the Reconfigure task using the Reconfigure wizard.
