It's normal.

Plan on it taking a few days if necessary. It will continue functioning. This is not the super-fastest SAN in the world. :)

It will work faster if you shutdown host activity.

Insert the new disks and expand the vdisk (as long as you don't hit the maximum) - this will take a lot of time.


Hope this helps!
