3PAR 7200c - Can a Virtual Volume be expanded non-disruptively to the host ?

Hi,

Can I expand a Virtual Volume non-disruptivly to the host either as a fully provisioned or thin Virtual Volume ?

I can see from the 3PAR Management Console 4.6.2.6 the Virtual Volume Edit option.

So If I change the size from 2,400 GiB to 3,600 GiB there will not be any interuption to the host or data loss ?

Best Regards,

Lee

You did not tell what OS, but for mostly all: YES

After expand on the Array, rescan LUN on the Host and expand Volume on the Host.

That was not planned in this way.

Thanks.

The OS of the Host is Windows 2012 R2

So no Problem.

Enter new Size in 3PAR, wait 2 Minutes, rescan Disk in Windows, expand Disk in Windows.

That was not planned in this way.

So you can only edit and change the VV size for a thin device ?

Fully Provisioned is not allowed ?
