chanig priority while expanding on DL380G2 smart array 5i???

Hi,

I started an online expanding job on a dl380g2 smart array w/o BBWC, but the priority was still set to low so it takes a lot of time 45% in 2 days. :(
(windows2000 sp4)

1)Can I change this to high while the expansion is busy? Or will this corrupt my data?
2)is rebooting the server affecting the expanding task?

thanks for replying!

1. yes you can change at any time not affecting your data at all so go ahead and change it to high

2. if the sever has BBWC and battery for that you can reboot server even shutdown since the battery will store the stage where the expansion was taking place

Hi,

The online expansion process normally consumes time approx 15-20min's per GB as it depends on drive capacity and controller along with BBWC.

You can set the priority to high if server is not in production else the users accessing server may be impacted.

Rebooting the server is fine but its not recommended if you do not have a BBWC.
