HP RAID setup Optimization Scan

When one creates a new array on an HP controller (RAID 50 in this example) the controller states:

1729 - Slot x Drive Array - Disk performance Optimization Scan In Progress- RAID 4/5/ADG performance may be higher after completion.

Would there be an impact on the system if installing the operating systems immediately on the server during this scan versus waiting for it to complete?

If the OS was installed during the scan, once the scan completes, will the installed OS be fragmented or would there be any other negative side-affects?

I'm thinking there would be no side affects other than a speed decrease during the scan as it states, but wanted to be sure.

Thanks!

I am not 100% sure, but I think this is no different from a usual disk-sync.

The only impact is it's a bit slower while it's building parity in background, you can go ahead and install without waiting for it to complete.
