Re: Extending Logical drive

PJ- i have not had any trouble with extending any array. just be certain you set the "extend priority" in the ACU to Maximum or you will be there for a while. this link may help you also. and also, be sure you have a full backup beofre you start tinkering.

thanks and please assign point(s)!

Re: Extending Logical drive

Hi,

Extentsion is is supported but depends upon controller, where as all new controller support extention.
For doing so you need to use ACU.
Refer to this doc
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/software-management/acumatrix/index.html

For more details on controllers
