Rob, What do you mean by initialize? Like FORMAT C:? This may not be relevant, but we recently moved some disks from one ASP to another on our single AS/400. We actually did this is three passes. Each pass took between 45 and 60 minutes. The size of the disks (4 or 8 GB), the speed of the disks, or the number of disks (1,2 or 3) did not seem to make much difference. Another bit of worthless information: We also added a single new disk drive (8 GB, 10 k rpm). I did not watch the clock when it we added it to the RAID set, but I'm guessing it was about 20 minutes. Two days later we added it to an existing ASP. That took another 30 minutes running under DST. Phil Subject: How long to initialize disk?
