MSA2000i G2 Hot Plug Expansion...

Hi,

I have to upgrade (expand) an MSA2000i G2 DC with two additional drive enclosures and disks...

The HP Product Bulleting QuickSpecs state that "The MSA2000i supports hot plug expansion and replacement of redundant controllers, fans, power supplies, and I/O modules for simple, fast installation and maintenance."

Can anyone point me towards a guide that details the Hot Plug Expansion procedure..?

Also, has anyone actually done a hot drive enclosure expansion..? My preference is all ways to do it cold, but in this instance I cannot get the downtime scheduled in the timeframe I have...

Many Thanks in advance...

Martin

Hello Martin,

hot add of disk enclosure isn't supported. You have to shutdown the whole system and install the enclosures.
