I'm working with a Pegasus2 R8 setup in RAID 6 (one logical volume of 24TB, can sustain two failed drives), and I'd like to change the RAID level to RAID 5 (one logical volume of 28TB, can sustain one failed drive), Is this possible to do "in-place," without erasing all the data off the unit?

Hi Ben,

If you change the RAID it will erase the data in that logical drives. Please take the backup fo the data then change the RAID Level.
