MSA1500cs extend/expand TAKING AGES

I've got a MSA1500cs with that had 7x 72G SCSI drives. I've added another 2 drives and it's taking AGES to expand/extend onto the new drives. It's been 48hrs and it's only halfway done. There are 10 LUN's varying from 10G to 150G.

How long SHOULD this take? Am i just impatient?

Also, i've assigned a new lun in the additional space, but when i try and initialise the disk in W2k3 it says it can't be initialsed as it has bad sectors. Do i have to wait until the extend has finished before i can use it?
