msa1000 extend task

Hi, we have 5 logical disks and 90gb unused space at the end. I want to extend the size of logical disk 2 and I see the extend option in the task list but im not sure if its possible to do without stopping my systems. The logical disk is used by a server2003 os, can i just go ahead and extend the size "on the fly?"

PS. Array Configuration Utility

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi Martin,

Using the ACU, the extension can be done when the file syste is online. the newly added space will come as an unallocated space in the server and you need to create a volume out of it.
