MSA500 to MSA1000 in-place upgrade

Hello!

The introduction of MSA500 on the web reads that MSA500 can be in-place upgraded to MSA1000. Does anyone know how exactly is this upgrade done? What is repaced? The storage controller? Entire MSA chassis (everything except disks)? Or what?

Re: MSA500 to MSA1000 in-place upgrade

I believe the controllers get swapped and either a fibre module or fibre switch is introduced in the back end (which is actually the "front end").

Also, the backend scsi module gets swapped if you have the 4 port module. The MSA1000 only supports connected 2 extra Disk Shelves where the MSA500G2 supports the connection of up to 4 servers. (or is that 2 in a cluster solution?)

Toomas,

Don't know if you've seen this already, but it tells you everything you need to know.
