extension raid 5

salve,
ho un server Proliand Ml350G3 con windows 2000std e 3 dischi da 36gb configurati come raid 5 (controlle smart array 532).
Ho aggiunto un disco di pari dimensione e con Array configuration utility ho fatto l'estensione. il programma mi dice che è in corso l'operazione ma sono passate più di 24 ore ed è ancora li che segnala che è in corso. é normale? cosa posso fare?

Re: extension raid 5

This is normal for it to take over 24 hours. It can take from 20-40 minutes per GB to complete. You might want to set the rebuilt priority setting on the controller to high to speed it up.

Sergio:

If you use the older ACU gui, ver 2.90a... it does display a % status completed. at the bottom of the window.

It should work in a G3.

Re: extension raid 5

sorry... i'm confused. when i add an hd to an array, acu display me a status messagge: the system in doing expansion, extension....
In the graphic i can see array with the the old disk and the new declare as "not use"; i don't understand if the system is doing something or it wait that i create a logical disk.
