I was rushed to put a server online about a year ago, but really needed to install Raid 1 mirroring. Instead Raid 0 is on the system. I need to convert to from Raid 0 to Raid 1 if possible without affecting the operating system. Can this
be done? The server is also part of a cluster and is the backup server to the cluster so all of the users are currently connected to the primary. A Disk Array is attached to the two servers in the cluster so I guess if I do proceed, then I should
unplug the cables from the server I am working on converting. I am only looking to convert the internal hard drives not the Disk Array.
I think is possible to preserve Operating System while converting from Raid 0 to Raid 1. Is it a RAID Hardware, right ?
I suggest to make an image of your hard disk, then change from Raid 0 to Raid 1 and restore image. You can use
Acronis True Image, or any other software able to backup and restore images. If it doesn't boot, read this article from
Acronis Forum38761: Restoring RAID0 Backup Image to RAID1 Mirror.
