Is EVA CA/BC supported with dynamic LUN expansion?

I have 2 EVA4100s configured with Async CA.
I wonder if CA is supported with dynamic LUN expansion. The server OS is windows 2003.

Thanks.

Re: Is EVA CA/BC supported with dynamic LUN expansion?

Hi,
yes it is supported (Windows 2003 supports the dynamic LUN expansion via the diskpart utility), however the safiest way to do so is the following:
1. remove the vdisk to be expanded (still presented) from the DR group. (save the destination copy)
2. expand the vdisk
3. add it back to the DR - its full copy will be started
4. The backup destination copy can be deleted
once the full copy completes
the pain is one part of the reality
