Use second hard drive for Domino.doc library overflow
My company has installed a Domino.Doc system equipped with two 63 GB hard drives. Originally, the system vendor only set up the Domino.Doc to use one hard drive for the Domino.Doc library -- figuring it would take a long time to fill up the first hard drive. Now the hard drive is approaching full, and we do not know how to make the Domino.Doc library continue using the second hard drive once the first one is full. Is there a procedure to make the Domino.Doc system start using the second hard drive without disrupting the data in the first? I appreciate any comments or hints on this issue.
I'm not sure what type of system this is, but your best bet is to get the drives together as one volume. If the one drive is empty, you can expand the volume to that second drive. If that drive has data on it, you need to either rebuild the drives as one logical volume, or you need to add a new drive and expand the existing volume to include the new drive.
