After you add new disks to a hardware RAID array to extend storage space that contains a dynamic disk, new storage space that you added to the array may not be available at the end of the dynamic disk. Or, the Disk Management tool may not start. When you try to start Disk Management, you may receive any of the following error messages:
Logical disk manager The remote procedure call failed.
Windows - System Error Unknown hard Error
The system process C:\Winnt\System32\Services.exe terminated unexpectedly. Error code 128.
Event Type: Warning Event Source: LDM Event Category: None Event ID: 1000 Description: Disk group CompernameDg0: Errors in some configuration copies: Disk Harddisk0, copy 1: Block 0: Disk read failure
Event Type: Information Event Source: dmio Event Category: None Event ID: 34 Description: dmio: Harddisk0 is re-online by PnP
This problem is caused by a timing issue when Disk Management removes the old disk and enumerates and installs the newly sized disk.
