smart array p400 expand logical drive

I have a smart array p400 without the option BBWC
I want to increase the size of the LUN from 60 Gb to 120 Gb at the expense of free space on the physical disks.


Will I be able to do this without rebuilding the LUN?
Will I be able to do it after purchase and connect BBWC, without rebuilding LUN?


Re: smart array IPPP expand logical drive



Refer to P400 QuickSpecs here.


Management Features:

Online array expansion (with BBWC upgrade)
Online logical drive extension (with BBWC upgrade)
Online RAID level migration (with BBWC upgrade)
Online strip size migration (with BBWC upgrade)


The above said functionality can be performed only with BBWC.

Else you may have to rebuild the LUN after taking a backup.


Thank You!
