I've decided to partition my 3TB Data drives (4X1TB in RAID 5 config) into two 1.5TB partitions (for backup purposes per some advice I got on this board). I bought a new Dell R320 server and it boots up to a screen asking if I want to do a clean install or a server migration. I'm assuming there are no tools to do the partitioning built into SBS 2011 and I'd like to have the partitioning done before I start the migration process. Is the best procedure to use a third party tool like booting to a live CD w/ GParted and partition that way? Also, will I have any problem partitioning the drive since it's RAID 5?
