Hi Gordon,

Plug in the card first. Install the MSA20 in the rack and connect to the IO card then apply power to the MSA20. Controller display will recognise the addition of a storage box.
Add disks into MSA20 - each will be recognised by the MSA1500 controllers. Then configure through ACU or CLI as normal.

Cheers, Mike.
