Issue regarding my HP MSA1500

I am using HP MSA1500

 

I have aArray H consist of 4 disks with RAID1+0

 

In order to expand the array I have mistakenly added 1 drive to the array which gives me kind of message that your array is RAID1

0 and some thing I dont remember ,

But I pressed Ok to that message and Now the array is showing trasnforming status and RAID6 ADG and after 2 hours it just gone to 1%.

 

The Array was having 2 logical drive and I checked the servers where the drives are presented and its looking OK. i can see the data there but I am worried if the data will be lost

 

Please advice, if MSA will change the Array RAID with out destrying the data

 

Or what can i do to revert back to the situation

Re: PLEASE HELP

I assume you started a migrate raid level process - don't do anything, wait until it is finished.

Hope this helps!

I would not have expected ACU to allow that to occur. 

 

Your data is fine, you will have to let the expansion run its course to completion.

 

If you want revert back to the previous configuration.  You will have to delete, recreate and restore.  Make sure you have fresh backup copies.

Re: PLEASE HELP

If you really convert a RAID0+1 to RAID6 it can take several days ...

Hope this helps!

Re: PLEASE HELP

I have no problem there with time as far as the data is good and intact. Which I hope it will be ?

Re: PLEASE HELP

After expansion you can run a file system check to confirm the integrity of the data.

Re: PLEASE HELP

its been more than 8 hours but it is still on 1%

 

i will be moving off data from the servers but will need at least 24 hours for robocopy and other change managment time. I hope this should allow me that much time beofre every thing falls apart :(
