I have a VMAX running 5875 code. I'm using virtual pools for all devices. In one case I have a TDEV which is currently in a device group that is replicating via SRDF/A. The device is not a meta, it is a standard R1 device.
I need to grow the device and I would like to do so by forming it into a meta and concatenating another hyper to it. In the past I remember reading that forming a meta from a thin hyper required the device to be unmapped. Is this still the case in 5875?
If not, what are the steps I need to follow in order to do an online expansion of this TDEV? I need to do so without affecting the replication of the other devices in the DG.
