There is not much information here to work with. If there are still unused slots, simply remove the filler panel, insert new hard drive. If there are already 12 drives in the array you may need to add an extension tray. I am pretty confident that can be done online. Insert tray into rack, connect cables. done.
That would be the hardware part. Do you want to reconfigure your old virtual disks or just configure new volumes and luns? The latter is really straight forward from the documentation. The former option requires some more planning, work and downtime.
The docs have some more information: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E20734_01/index.html
If you launch CAM and go to the "Help" to search for "expand", you will find a chapter for "Expanding Volume Capacity" which provides all the steps.
YES , still unused slots. I can insert new hard drive. But this is production storage. I have few question:
1. How can i backup all information ?
2. How can i backup storage config?
3. If i expand volumes , all data will be lost ?
Thank you for answer.
