Adding 2nd Larger Parity Drive and Then Upgrading Primary

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I have an array of disks with one parity drive. Parity is 10TB and the array is mostly 10TB's with a few 8's. Recently had some issues and am adding 14TB as second parity. That's building now.


Question I have since Parity 1 is 10TB and Parity 2 will be 14TB do I lose the extra 4TB? After this was done rebuilding my plan is to upgrade Parity 1 to 14TB but my concern is if Parity 2 shows up as 10TB will both parity drives not be using full capacity if I go through with my plan?
