in my new job i have inherited a SX80 san.
we want to create a new volume on a disk which is currently using a 500gb volume for exchange mailstore.
we want to allocate the remaining 1tb for this new volume.
having little experience of this kit previously, can you tell me if creating this volume will
a) take a long time
b) affect performance on the exchange store
My impression is that it wont. I know "expanding" a volume will affect performance however we only want to create one here.
Has anyone else performed this simple function during working hours?
any help would be great thanks.
