Migrating RAID 1 to 5? Yeah, no.

Add a 4 drive RAID5 or 6 as a separate volume using a hardware RAID controller. You have a mirror, leave it at all reasonable costs.


The system disk is 2 disk RAID1. Not being touched.

The data disk is a two disk RAID1.

I want to replace the RAID1 data disk as a 6 disk RAID5. That is the jobs drive for Prinergy which also has the oracle database. I lose 1.2 TB of storage space leaving it as a 2 and 4 disk RAID1 and RAID5 and the 2 disk RAID1 is useless as I need everything on one array. And yes it is a hardware RAID. Perc H730 Mini.

All will be disclosed should there be any interest.

This is still under service plan & my research indicates Kodak will require buyer to pay support for any lapse of time. So if it was off line for a year, you will be required to pay a years worth of support & sign new agreement. They will be happy to take your $$

The longer it is offline, the less it's worth. This one's a freshie! BTW we paid 140K for it so there is much value vs asking price.

Kodak's formula is if system cost 100K, your support based on 10 years of service will be an additional 100K!

12 years of being Creo/Kodak user, Kodak's service plan never bailed me out. These are reliable machines.

For this reason there are a surprising number of rogue systems out there.

There is risk in everything in life......

I know when I've had to backup our Kodak servers before. Oracle must be shutdown and all services. I used to boot up via a USB flash drive, and then use Ghost to backup to another USB drive. Which we had a Kodak tech help me set that up, so I could do it.

But as far as the RAID, I wish I had the solution. I have a guy I call in for such things. He's local for me, but would be happy to PM you his info, as he is really good with remoting in and doing the work. As that is how is helps us the most.

Which is exactly what Kodak has told me. However in the Prinergy Administrator there is a backup function that backs up the Prinergy configs and Oracle database that runs at 5:00 am every morning. How can it do this. I suppose it could shut down all services while it does it but we have people creating jobs, uploading and viewing through Insite 24 hours a day. I've never had anyone complain that it isn't working at 5:00 am.

Thanks for the offer. I will hold off on it for now, I know Kodak uses Ghost when they want to mirror a system so I think I will buy that and backup the whole system and give it a go. Worse comes to worse I can just restore the image of the system and should be good. Or head to Mexico and retire.
