Slow Smart 5300 Array Expanding


I have an odd problem when expanding an array with a Smart-5300.

I added 4 discs to an existing array of 3 logical drives and proceed to expand it (did it successfully so many times....)

But the first logical drive (15Mb) got stucked "expanding" at 99% since last friday.

Inicial settings for Expanding Priority was "Low". I changed it to "Medium" on the fly (without rebooting) but nothing seems to happen.

The OS is Win NT4

What do I have to do now? if I reboot the server.... it will crash?


Don´t worry, be happy
