msa2012i

Goodmorning ,

 

I have a msa2012i single controller  with two virtual disks.

 

- The A virtual disks with 5 HD 300GB SAS raid 5 with three volumes.

 

The B virtual disks with 4 HD 300GB SAS raid 10 with two volumes.

 

I would add two  disks to 300 GB or larger the A virtual disk.

I can expand the A virtual disk  and then expand one of the three volumes?

all without losing data.

 

thanks

Re: msa2012i

Hi, you can expand, but I am unsure if there are restrictions to it.

Note that it takes 15min/GB to do an expansion. Or 150 hours for 2x300GB.

Re: msa2012i

thanks for you replay.

msa mount the 300 GB SAS disks ten the two logical volumes.

my question is as follows:

 

1) I can add drives of larger capacity and form a differentlogical volume?

2) the same server I could have two iscsi connections that link to two different logical volumes on the same MSA?

 

thanks

>> you can add larger disks and create another vdisk, in that you can create more volumes

>> logical volumes are not tied to a physical ethernet port.

Re: msa2012i

What is your question?

 

You can connect the same server to several iSCSI targets.
