Re: MSA30 Replacement Procedure

Please provide more background information - AFAIK all MSA enclosures are the same, but disks and I/O modules differ. What you currently have, what is configured and what do you want to change?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: MSA30 Replacement Procedure

power down the array. swap the chassis, disks and I/O modules. Make sure to connect all cables on same positions as before. Start the array.

Hope this helps!
