Some quick questions on migration
Just looking for some quick pointers if I may?
HP microserver running raid 1 with whs 2011
Boot drive is 250gb sata drive
2 x 2tb Sata drives with RAID 1 (so therefore 2tb)
Aim is to migrate to Stablebit pool with folder duplication.
For now have purchased a Seagate 3tb Sata drive.
Quick questions. How to back up existing data? My thinking is to place new drive in server, add to Stablebit pool, copy relevant non pooled data to pool. Is that a good first step?
Then delete raid one setup (via HP bios) as I assume Stablebit folder duplication is a better way to go? Is this assumption correct?
I assume deletion of the raid array will delete all my data (hence the backup mentioned before) ?
Then I will have three data drives (2x 2tb plus 1 x 3tb) plus a 250gb boot drive.
What are my optimal next steps at this point? Using Stablebit and WHS.
Or is there an even better way altogether of doing all of it this?
