Hello, i have a DL4100 with two red 4T drives running as a Raid 1
I have two empty bays. I have a few WD green 2 and 3 T drives that i was not using and was thinking of putting two of them into the empty bays as JBOD.
I searched around and could not find any info as how to add drives. Im sorry for asking such basic questions, but i was not sure if i could just slide them in? do i need to shut down the system first? will i be able to format them without interferring in any way with the raid1 that i have? If i put two drives in that are the same, could i format just those two as a second raid?
i think i read somewhere that i should shut down, remove the two drives that i have, add the new ones, format them, shut down, put everything back in, and power up. does that sound right? thank you
