i have created raid 1 and raid 5 in my DL 380 server :-;-
raid 1 146 gb*2
raid 5 300 gb *5
before in raid 5 i was having only 300gb*4 disks i bought one additional and from server ACU i have deleted the raid 5 and recreated by adding additional HDD .
although raid is created and it shows 1.09 TB of my E drive . but here i have a small douught as when i see the ACU and click on array 5 of raid 5 .
i can see a blue mark there .and inside view status alert i get this
785 Background parity initialization is currently queued or in progress on Logical Drive 2 (1.1 TB, RAID 5). 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"
