Add a Disk to a RAID Configuration

The add disk subcommand adds a specified disk to a RAID configuration.

Only certain RAID levels, such as RAID 5 or 6, allow disks to be added to their configuration when in a non-degraded (healthy) state. Only RAID levels that support redundancy allow disks to be added.

  • To add a specific disk to a RAID volume, type:

    # raidconfig add disk -d disk -r raidvolume

    For example:

    # raidconfig add disk -d c0d2 -r c0r1

    Note -  If you list the disk's properties after adding a disk, the RAID ID is not updated to reflect that it has been added to a RAID volume until the add process is complete.

    The add disk subcommand requires the options shown in the following table.

    Short Option
    Long Option
    Specifies the list of disks that you want to add to the RAID volume.
    Specifies the RAID volume ID number to which you want to add the disk.
