    If I have a server that is mirrored via hardware and it has a RAID controller what would I have to do to change to RAID 5. Would I just have to add the hard drives and set it up?

      You will first have to “Break the Mirror”
      You can then add the drives.
      You cannot have the “System Partition” in the Raid array. so leave the first disk alone and create the Raid 5 set on the extra disks.

      You can do hardware RAID on a system partition because the hardware level is below the level that NT knows about. I would suggest you find the documentation on your array controller and see if there is anything in there about it.

      I believe it ispossible with the Compaq array configuration program. If in doubt, rtfm.
