time to migrate from RAID 1 to RAID 5?

We currently have 2 x 36GB drives in our DL380 as RAID 1 and will be migrating to a RAID 5 configuration over 3 x 36GB disks. What's the RAID migration rate? Should it be completed within 48 hours?

Thanks.

Damien,

A rebuild takes approx 15 minutes per 1GB of drive space. I would think the same rate would apply to the migration. My calculations show approx 27 hours.

Have a nice day,

Mike
