How long does Smart Storage Administrator take to do an array?

Hi guys,

Could you help me with a little doubt?

I have an HPE Proliant DL360 G10 and I was configuring an Array (Raid 5) through HPE Smart Storage Administrator with 5 Drives (5 x 2TB)

My array controller is HPE Smart Array P408i-a SR. My question is:

How long does Smart Storage Administrator take to do this array?

Is it normal for it to take so long?

At this moment, we´ve been 4 hours.

Thanks for your advice,

Normally it is pretty much instant.  What did you select for Parity Initialization Method?  If you selected Rapid, this takes some time, pretty sure a warning message pops up stating this.  Leave it set to defualt and you can use the drive array immediately
