I need to take some disk from one partition and give it to another partition. I have not done this and looking to contract this out. I'm getting one quote for two very long days which I don't understand. Seems like a 6 or 8 hours at the most? Can someone help me understand why so long or is it just a over quote?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The reason for this is because you are reconfiguring your disks. I is like getting a new system with nothing on it. So my guess is that it will be a complete system save then a reconfig of your iSeries and then a complete restore. The length of time all depends on how much disk you have. I would say it would take a day without any mistakes or gotchas to do it. This is a simple task but leave it to the people that know what they are doing.

    It really depends on your existing disk configuration. Are the disk currently configured, IE: In an ASP or Raid Set? Can the IOP be moved or do you need to physically move the DASD. If the drives are already configured a manual IPL will be needed just to unconfigure them and that coul dtake several hours. Two full days does seem extensive, 10-12 hours at most should cover it. Where are you located? Maybe we can work something out? I do disk configurations all the time at my current job.

    The best answer to your question is "It depends". Are both your partitions currently configured?? or is the second partition a new one. If they are both configured, you'll have to perform a SAVALL (GO save option 21)that may take some time (4 hours in my case). Then you'll have to move/ reallocate your hardware, disks, IOP's etc...to the new partition, then restore the whole systems to the partitions. You can estimate the restore to take 50% longer that the save. Bottom line, 2 days doesn't seem excessive to me Good luck
