Rebuilding Disk Volume?

» close window

The Question is:

Better ask than being sorry ...
Using OVMS 7.1-2 and RAID software for OpenVMS 2.4 (the latter unpatched as
 yet) on one node. The maintainace window on this system is very minimal.
SHOW DEVICE /REBUILD indicates that the RAID volume needs a rebuild. It
 consists of 6 (each shadowed) drives making up one stripeset.
Any danger doing a SET VOLUME /REBUILD to the RAID set on the live system?
Any special precausions called for?
