HP P2000G3 vdisk expand

Hi,

 

We have an HP P2000 G3 with 2 Array, one for VM, one for Backup. Actually, we have an issue where the Backup Array is almost full as we have replication site on this array too.

 

We have a 2 spare drive, so I can take one and add it tothe vdisk (900gb 10k). My questions are:

 

1. How long can it takes?

2. Can I/O to this array can still be performed? And can it be performed without formating the array?

 

I can disable replication site, but local backup should stay (but not very big, maybe 1-2gb per day maximum)

 

Thanks!

Depending on your configuration you can add a disk or you need a pair.

 

Expanding may take several days, but your array remains online and working.


Hope this helps!

Hi, Thanks for your answer!

 

it's a raid 5 of 6 900gb 10k.

 

So I guess we will go like this, as there is too much data to backup!

 

Thanks.

 

(Hope no power failure, we have a UPS but not for 3 hrs hehe)
