RAID Expansion

I'm trying to expand an array of 4 72GB drive by adding a fifth. I used the Compaq Array COnfig utility to add the drive but I have noticed that it has progressed to to certain percentage then goes back to zero. Any comments or ideas?

Re: RAID Expansion

It could be either it is running into a bad part of the drive OR bad data on the current drive set. You might want to run a consistency check of the current set first. THen do a full scan of the new drive surface for defects.

Re: RAID Expansion

Thanks for the feedback. The expansion did finally finish and I think it had a lot to do with the fact that I had SQL Server databases on this particular RAID set.
