    Sun Storagetek 3510 Expanding Logical drive

    Mahmoud_Hagi
      I have a logical drive which I want to expand but I don't have available free space left
      so I read through the manual and found that
      there is two sections
      expanding the logical drive
      adding physical drive to the logical drive
      but in the second section it says that when the new physical drive is added the logical drive size will increase but there will be two partitions one with the old size and new one with the size of the newly added physical drive so I'd like to know does this mean that I can't expand the logical drive using the newly added physical drive to have one partition with the size of ( the old size + the newly added physical drive size ) ?
      Is it possible or Do I have to destroy the array after taking backup of the data there then reconstruct the array with the new size ?

      Thanks in advance
