    Raid Setup

    Looking into setup of Raid on existing systems, this can be done ?

    While it is online or offline?

    You can copy data to RAID array, just like any drive. I dont think it'd be possible to do it while the server is online as the RAID array destroys all data on the RAID drives. You could probably do a reboot and mount the new RAID array as /new (with the partition scheme you need) copy all the data you need over, fix the mount points and then mount it as /, then rsync data one last time.

    It depends on the raid controller you use. Many of the better raid controllers do allow you to "upgrade" the raid level on the fly. Just make sure you have a full backup in case things go south.
