Add shelf to EVA8100 Expansion Rack online

We have an EVA8100 2C16D and wish to add the last two shelves to the expansion rack. Our HP Field Engineer said that it is best practice to shut down the EVA whenever adding shelves to the expansion rack, however (for obvious reasons) I'm just wondering if anyone has done this online. I'm aware of the drive restrictions in Bays 12, 13 and 14 of the appropriate shelves, I just don't see why adding two more shelves to the expansion rack is any different than adding them in the main rack.

Thanks.

Hello Darren,

rack expansion is a supported online operation. If you need to add the can-bus extension, then shutdown the EVA. This can't be done online, because you need to remove the terminator.

Best regards,
