Can I restart a machine while MegaRaid is reconstructing
Posted on 2015-02-21
OK, I hope this is a simple quick yes\no question.
I have an ESXi host with a RAID6 set consisting of 6 drives. I have 2 more drives that I want to add to the set. I have taken down the server and started the process to add one to the VD and the status is now in the reconstruction phase. My question is whether it is safe to exit the LSI WebBIOS boot the server since the RAID6 set was fully intact at the time that I started. At this rait, the process will take close to 10 hours and I really dont want the server down that long. I am pretty sure that the answer is yes, but I cant afford to be wrong on this one.
