Expanding RAID array - VMWare reports all drives In critical array
Posted on 2016-08-07
I added three new hard drives to my HP Proliant 380 and started the expansion process. Now, in VMware, it's reporting that all 8 drives are in critical array and current state is assert. It also shows the warning that the RAID is currently expanding. My VMs booted up fine.
Is this something I need to worry about, as perhaps one of these new drives is bad, or is this hopefully normal behavior since the RAID is expanding?
The three drives I added did report that they need a firmware update, which I plan to do after the expansion is complete. Perhaps this could be the cause?
