Pinned topic DRAID6 - Expanding a pool/MDisk?

‏2019-06-10T18:16:35Z |

I know this question has been asked a few years ago, but as it stands today does the StorWize V7000 GEN3 support adding/expand existing DRAID pool? I have a SSD I forgot to allocate to the DRAID6 pool when it was created and I was looking to add it to the pool instead of keeping it as a spare. Running firmware.


If it has not been added, is there an ETA when this will be a added? Not being able to expand an existing DRAID can be problematic in the long run.

    We are all waiting for the possibility to add one or more drives. 
    But unfortunately this is not yet the case. 
    I still have to see if this feature is coming this year.

    How can we find out what the status is? Someone somewhere must know if/when this will happen.
