Upgrading disks without a parity drive present

Recommended Posts

Due to some constraints I built my unraid server without a parity drive.  I just got purchased 2 new drives and now I want to install them and make 1 a parity drive. All of my server bays were previously full so I was unable to integrate the drives into the array without replacing them first. How do I integrate these new drives into the array without an existing parity drive? Is this possible to do or am I stuck rebuilding with a new configuration?


The 2 newly installed drives are currently running through the pre-clear process.
