If I attach a 15TB shelf to a CS210, and then later outgrow it, can I buy a 30TB shelf and migrate the data from one shelf to the other via second CS210? Can the shelves be swapped between CSXXXs like that or are they married to the original unit?
As David said, once a shelf is added to an array it is married. However if you needed to upgrade the shelf you can remove it after you have migrated data off the array. The good news is with our 2.0 code you can do this this process fairly easily with no downtime by doing the following:
At this point you will be back on the original array with the new shelf. All of this can be done with zero downtime. If you need a loaner array to preform this work, work with your account team. Your SE can help with this process as well.
Hi Adam, that’s a very good question. Once you attach a shelf to an array, it is married to that array.
