Hi. I have G8 with 2 Raid 1 (2x8 Tbs & 2x4 Tbs)

The Raid 2x4 no problem with loss buy i need save Raid 1 8 Tbs.

 

I buy a P222. Can I put 2 Hds from older Array to new with loss archives?

Can I make a migration from RAID 1 to RAID 5 with loss archives with P222?

 

Thank you.

Yes you can migrate arrays form the B120i to the P222, but you should have a good backup before you do anything. You should be able to change the RAID type, but you need at least three drives to make a RAID5 array. Most times I played with RAID migration I was going RAID10 to RAID5 with four drives. Be sure all of your devices and controllers have the latest firmware. I think the P222 needs to have cache to support RAID5 and to do RAID migration.

On page 24 there is a section on migration:

If you are managing your RAID controllers with SSA here is the guide:

Hi,

 

Have you got any information regarding the compatibility issues with 8Tb HDD and P222?

 

I have also got 8Tb drives and I'd like to buy a P222 Smart Array, But have got some bad news on that...

The P222 picked up the RAID sets from the B120i with out issue?

I will be curious to see how the RAID 1 to RAID 5 conversion goes.

Good luck!

Yes. NO issues.

I put the P222 to place the cable and it recognized me the two raids without problems.
The B120i complains because it can not find the hard drives. I do not want to turn it off or do anything until I have the migration done.

As the B120i does not find the hard disks the server has the warning light in red.

Tomorrow I get the 8Tb hard drive.

Would you mind placing HDD model info here just to let people know?

 

I have bought 8Tb Seagate ST8000NM0055 drives and it is ok when speaking about B120i but I am only planning an upgrade...

My 8 Tbs HD are Seagate Ironwolf NAS ST8000VN022 with Firware SC61.

 

The new HD 8 Tb for RAID migration is "FAILED" = RIP.

I Think problem with transport...

 

I need any days for change this unit for new...


Sorry.
