Re: add new disk

You want to add a disk to your array in the MSA30?

 

# man saconfig

 

will help you.

 

Example:

 

# saconfig /dev/ciss3 -E 1 -p 1:3
Logical drive 1 expanded from 3 to 4 physical drives

 

This command added disk 1:3 to logical drive 1.

 

# saconfig /dev/ciss3 -E 1 -c 80      
Logical drive 1 extended from 60.0 GB to 80 GB in capacity

 

this commands extends the logical drive.

 

 

 

 

CAUTION: use your own values!


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
