have a [Compaq] storage array to our HP DL380 G2 server (running Microsoft 2K Advanced Server with Cluster Services which has a Smart Array 5i Embedded controller . In the array there are (3) existing 72.8GB 15k rpm SCSI Ultra 320 drives that are currently running under cluster services as a logical drive. I added to this array (3) new 146.8GB 15k rpm SCSI Ultra 320 drives as 2 new logical drives. I used Compaq Array Configuration Utiility to manage these drives/controllers. I have received a message for the past 96 hours that states:
Background parity initialization is currently queued or in progress on Compaq Smart Array Cluster Controller in RAID Array 9J1BKF31D4ZBDV on the following logical drives. Logical Drive 8. Logical Drive 9. This is a normal operation that is necessary to initialize logical drives that have a fault tolerance with parity. If background parity initialization is queued, it will start when I/O is performed on the drive. When background parity initialization completes, the performance of the logical drive will improve.
I found this on hp's website (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=PSD_EC030424_CW01
), but it is vague as to what I need to do to finish the parity initialization. Any recommendations?
