hpacucli command

Here is a good reference: http://people.freebsd.org/~jcagle/hpacucli-readme

I recently had to use the hpacucli command to increase the size of a mirrored RAID array.

To find the status of all the controllers use the following options:

hpacucli ctrl all show

To find information about a specific controller:

hpacucli ctrl slot=0 show

To find the status of a specific controller:

hpacucli ctrl slot=0 show status

Show the details of a controller:

hpacucli ctrl slot=0 show config detail

Now to expand the RAID disk size from 150GB to 300GB.

To expand a LOGICAL DRIVE:

ctrl slot=3 ld 1 modify size=max

Getting help on the extend command: hpacucli extend help

Getting help on the controller command: hpacucli ctrl help

  1. Thanks for this! Had a day booked out to perform array expansion and then when I came to do it there was no option in the RAID BIOS or the GUI. Thought I was going mad until I found these few simple commands. Very much appreciated.
