DS2400 Question

I have one DS2400 connected to a RP2470 as a JBOD.  Currently the DS2400 is maxed with 15 drives and I would like to double the disk space and increase the volumes.

 

Can I daisy chain a second DS2400 to the first one?

 

Thank you.

Re: DS2400 Question

If you can get one - YES.

 

Just set the rotary switch to another number, the disk will get addresses from another range.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: DS2400 Question

Thank you.

 

Once I add the second disk system, How do I expand my existing logical volumes...effectively doubling my disk space for the existing volumes.

Re: DS2400 Question

Ok,  I have the second DS2400 daisy chained, but now I am experiencing a new problem.  I keep losing disks.  An ioscan reports different drives as NO_HW.  Yesterday I had 2 drives report as NO_HW and today there is another one.  I replaced the drives but I am still getting this.  Could the backplane or controllers be bad?
