VDisk expanding on a SAN

Dear people,


We have a SAN with x counts of disks and we put 2 more extra in the SAN.

Now i know how to expand the VDISK01, but i want to know what is the impact.


IS it possible to expand in an live environment. and when is the best time. can we start in an regular work day, or is it better when there are less people at work.


Or must our environment been shutdown before we do the expanding.


adn how long could it take if we say from 7.2 tb expand with 1.2 tb raid 5?
