Having problems extend a logical volume in a MSA1000

Hi, im trying to extend a logical volume in a MSA1000, but always ge a weird error by doing it.

1. I check so i have free space to extend with
2. I choose what drive id like to extend and type in the vaule, in this case 50GB.
3. I get a error who says i need to choose a bigger size, minimum is 99999MB, even if i try that i get a failure.

Anyone knows anything about this?

I attached some screenies, about the error.

Regards

/Peter

Sure you don't try this with logical drive 2?

You need to specify the size you want to extend to (final size).

Hope this helps!

Hi Peter,

One solution is to extend the logical volume with identical size or more (99999 MB)
It seems that controller is only able to extend the mirror volume if required extension size is equivalent or greater than existing volume.

I definitely want to know the final solution for this issue whether it is Any firmware upgrade to enable functionality or any thing else.
