The mistake I made was to select the restore using the Discovery manager tool. I should have worked a bit longer to find another route causing my issue but felt that the restore of the 3 GB array would be rather quick–30 hours later it is still only 58% complete showing an estimated 470 minutes remaining. The estimation time is so far off because in 3 minutes it hasn’t move.
Is there another way around this restore or is my only choice to wait now maybe days for this to complete??
I think the main issue is rebuilding the RAID 5 array–had I known this, I would have opted for a different RAID config before restoring. Wow for something this expensive–this is incredibly show!!
