MSA 2040 adding physical disk in virtual pool

Hi everyone,

It's possible to add a physical disk in a virtual pool?

 This is my scenario:

 SAN HP MSA 2040

 Controller A:

- virtual pool : vDisk1

- RAID 5: 5 disks SAS 600GB per disk, total size 2395 GB

 Controller B:

- virtual pool: vDisk2

- RAID 5: 6 disks SAS 600GB per disk, total size 2995 GB

 Now I want expand the physical disk in vDisk1 and vDisk2, but the option modify groups disk is greyed, bacause I can modify only linear disk type.

 How I can add a physical disk?

 Thank you

Hi

You can only add a virtual disk group to a virtual pool

that is you need to create a new virtual disk group (Raid-1,Raid-5 etc) preferebly the same raid as the first vitual disk group

and it will be added to the virtual pool you want.

only if you create linear disk group than you can add one disk up to 16 disks depending on the raid level
