Reconfigure RAID 5 to increase storage space with out data loss.

Is it possible to increase the storage space of Dell Poweredge R430 by re-configuring RAID 5 without data loss?

I have got 5x1.2 TB SAS HDD, which is already used and I have another new 2x1.2 TB same model SAS HDD. Can I increase space without losing data?

Re: Reconfigure RAID 5 to increase storage space with out data loss.

Generally speaking, yes, this is something you can do. You'll want to install OpenManage Server Administrator, choose the Virtual Disks section of the Storage menu, and finally choose to reconfigure the array.
