MSA 2052 Volume Expansion

A client has the need to increse the size of an ISCSI volume connected to a physical server.  I added a disk group to Pool A, which is where the volume  draws from.  It appears that the avail space in Pool A has increased, but I don't see the extra space reflected on the physical server that the ISCSI volume is connected to.  Questions:

1)       Is the extra space now avail to the ISCSI volume even though the ISCSI volume doesn't reflect this?
2)       If yes to #1, will the ISCSI drive allow growth beyond its size without issue?
3)       Is there a way to get the ISCSI drive to reflect the extra space?

After adding a new disk group to expand the pool, you can proceed to expand the volume using the modify option.

1. No. Volume should be expanded on the MSA using modify option.
2. You can then rescan adapters/disk management on the host and increase the volume capacity on the host end.
