DL350 G5 Raid Rebuild

Hi all

I have 2 DL350 G%'s - one being DC/File Server, the other is Exchange/SQL, with the p400i raid controller.

They were both originally set up with Raid 1 mirrored. Yesterday I added a 3rd disk to both servers and began an online migration to Raid 5.

The Exchange server hit 100% late afternoon yesterday, and since then its been sitting on (Tansforming) 100% - is this normal?

The DC is still on 50%.

How long does the full process take? Can I reboot during online raid migration?

Re: DL350 G5 Raid Rebuild

The Hard Drives should be in a decent state, only 18 months old. The new ones are of course brand new.

The servers have green blinking leds.

I closed and reopened the ACU for the server which was sitting at 100% and it seems to have finished.

I guess the DC will finish sometime tonight, its on 59% now.

Hi hongman,
It should not take much time to complete the migration after reaching 100%.

May be ACU needed restart.
Now it is done so everything seems to be normal.

Do let us know if you face any issue or have any other query
