Updates to Ubuntu Server

Here's the deal..We have an Ubuntu Server ( [url removed, login to view] I think ) which has 2 hard drives 250 GB each 1 is allocated for the file system and one is allocated for back up. We also have a further 3 TB external hard drive that we want the back up to go to as well which is our fire hazard drive located outside the building via the network ( we do not currently have this activated in our back up ). We find ourselves in the situation that we are running out of space. We therefore wish to upgrade both drives to 1TB each ( 2TB total ). We need a Linux engineer to arrange this for us. We are technically fine with inserting new drives and have Linux knowledge ourselves. Project scope is to ensure the upgrade of the drives,to give us free space,( clone . expand ) ensure the back up is working correctly, Also the following needs doing ..ensure that Samba - SSH and VNC all auto start if for some reason the server has to be rebooted, along with the IP address fixed to a static IP.

1) Clone existing Sata drives to new drives

2) Ensure all is working correctly

3) Make sure backup is working both internal drive and external drive

4) Auto start services Samba SSH VNC

5 Fix IP address to 192.168.1,17

Experts only please

Need done as soon as possible, after [url removed, login to view] London UK time only, or on weekends
