eva leveling pending

hi experts
i have eva6000
with 2 disks groups
-the first disk group is made of fata disks and have alot of free space so i have added 2 disks to the disk group and the leveling reaches 57%
-the second disk group is made of fata disks the occupancy was about 99% so to be able to add more disks and allow the leveling to take place i have removed to protection level which was set to single so now i have about 2 disks as free space and i have added just 2 disks to that disk group the leveling start it reaches 22% and now the status is pending
note: the leveling on both disk groups take place simultaneously.

questions?
1) why the status is pending? can leveling occur simultaneously on 2 disk group?
2) how can i go out from this situation?

Re: eva leveling pending

-you said that 2 leveling can occur Simultaneously so why should i wait the first leveling to end?

i have read at the following link that 2 leveling cannot occur Simultaneously

-what is required space for the leveling to occur

-what should i see in the log in the VC if it is a space issue and what should i see if it is a load issue?

Re: eva leveling pending

Hi,

FYI, Levelling is not a Simultaneous activity. It will be perfomed only one DG at a time. One DG levelling complete it will start another.

As you performed changes on both DGs, one is in progress and another is Pending.

hi Sivaramakrishna
if leveling does not occur in the same time how the pending one reaches 22%?
