Yes it does, mostly.
I have not set up a RAID in D/U before, but seems straight forward.
When creating the RAID1, should I leave the RAID block Size @ 32? and should I have the RAID mirror AutoRebuild checked?
When I clone back over to the new RAID will everything be as setup on the original system? (sharepoints, LDAP, etc?) I guess that is the definition of cloning, but I tend to over-think things too much hoping I can work out all the pitfalls before jumping in. I never thought I would be in charge of the data for my company in this way
So I understand...
So Clone both raids to a FW drive, on separate partitions, and verify they work. Shutdown, replace the drives, them somehow boot to an alternative OS (CD install discs or previous FW drive, or set server to boot into target mode on another machine? Ok if it is an Intel Mac?). Setup the two RAIDS naming them the exact same as before. Clone the data over to the new drives...All should be great, set my boot volume, then back up and running...with larger drives.
Thanks again for your help. I get thrust into a position, then learn as I go...with help from those who know...
