Hi all,

I not sure if the word "migrating" should be used. Here is the case, we have a blade server which only have 2 local slot for hdd which is already occupied. The hdd is mirrored using hardware raid. Recently we encountered insufficient disk space and was thinking to increase the disk space. Somehow external storage is not an option here. The management bought two larger size hard disk and questioning if we can migrate/clone the running production OS to this new larger hard disk. The filesystem used is UFS and it is x86 machine. Please advise if it can be done using UFSdump. If yes, how about the partition size issue? Will it expanded? TQVM.
