Parity initialise time

Hi all,

5 x 9Gb disks (mixture of Fast/Wide and Ultra160) on a Smart2/P in a Deskpro6000 (PPro200). How long should it take to build a RAID5 logical disk and have the parity fully initialised? It's been going over 36 hours so far, the ACU I have doesn't have a progress bar, and I need to move this box. How much longer should I expect it to take?

Rob.

Re: Parity initialise time

To start with... we don't even support the controller in that system (or any other desktop). I don't even know if it CAN work...
