That's not _quite_ the same issue, or more specifically, it's a very
specific interpretation of a general issue. The question above was how
to add a disk to an existing an array. Your question answers how to add
an extra _array_ (i.e. a minimum of two disks, dependong on what raid
level you're using) to an existing storage system, without sacrificing
data, uptime or redundancy.
