=> logicaldrive 1 modify raid=5

Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the

I would say the process has been done and the conversion to RAID 5 is on the way.

Re: Raid Migration SA E200 BWCC

You are right. Now expanding was ready and ld 1 modify raid=5 was successful. Now config shows:
Logical Drive: 1

Fault Tolerance: RAID 5

Array Accelerator: Enabled
Parity Initialization Status: In Progress

Thanks very much.
