Thread: Remove vg00

  1. #1

    Default Remove vg00


    due a problem with the fc target in DSS7, we removed this task for the device.
    Now we want to grow our NAS vg01 with the harddrives used for vg00.

    What is the best way to do so?
    Simply remove the vg00 RAID and add the drives to the vg01 raid an grow vg01 ?

    The following steps are required to expand your RAID array ( add new disk (drive) to your RAID array) even to Vg00 or else.
    1.Physically add the new disk drive(s) to the server

    2.Configure your RAID array on the RAID controller of your server or Open-E GUI (Setup->H/W RAID) If the controller is supported
    Please Note: Depending upon your raid controller the terms may be listed differently. Please refer to your user manual o how to expand the RAID.

    3.Choose “Expand RAID Set” from the controller by choosing and adding the drive to the RAID set.
    This will take some time as the RAID will migrate data to the new drive(s). When migration is completed please reboot the server.

    4.After that, users have to “Modify the volume” In the RAID controller. And reboot.

    5.In Open-E console, go to Extended Tools (Ctrl-Alt-X)
    Select ‘PV Resize’
    When the RAID array comes up press ‘OK’.
    Next window should read ‘Finishing’, press Enter to reboot
    REBOOT the system

    6.Now you will see the new size of the VG that is usable.

    Note: It require to perform a reboot almost after each step.

    ok, I will try this next weekend.

    But does it matter when I remove vg00 with its logical drive on it?
    Will vg01 with its logical drive (and shares) still be accessable?
