I have new hard drives to install into my EVA-4400.

I have new hard drives to install into my EVA-4400.

I have an EVA-4400 with 10 TB hard drives installed directly from HP. I have recently aquired 14 new TB FATA hard drives to complete the enclosure. Do I need to shut down the enclosure to install the new drives and upgrade firmware, or can I just install the new drives and populate them through the SAN?

Re: I have new hard drives to install into my EVA-4400.

Plug in one disk drive and watch for it to appear in CV-EVA. This makes it much less likely to produce duplicate disk drive names.
Then plug in the next disk drive and repeat.
Disk drives should be divided equally across all disk drive enclosures and there must be a minimum of 4 drives in an enclosure.

Finally go to the disk group and press [Add disk]. Add all 14 disk drives at once..

EVA 4400 is arranged in this manner:
1. Switch 1
2. Switch 2
3. HSV 200 assembly
4. Enclosure 1 (with 4 empty slots bays 9,10,11,12)
5. Enclosure 2 (with 4 empty slots bays 9,10,11,12)

The rule of vertical disk arrangement and considering the rule, addthe disk in this manner:
1. Add to ENC1-bay 9, wait til recognized
2. Add to ENC2-bay 9, wait til recognized
3. Add to ENC1-bay 10, wait til recognized
4. Add to ENC2-bay 10, wait til recognized
5. Add to ENC1-bay 11, wait til recognized
