P2000 G3 upgrade both controllers

Hi,

 

Customer currently has P2000 G3 with 2 FC controllers. Now they buy 2 new FC/iSCSI controllers.

We have to replace 2 controllers. We think of 2 solutions:

- Solution 1: Turn off disk system , replace 2 controllers, then turn on disk system.

- Solution 2: Turn off 1 controller, replace , then do again with the other controller.There is always 1 controller in online state.  Disk system is online for the whole process.

 

 

If do option 1: After turn on disk system, can the 2 new controllers detect vdisk, volume configuration from HDD and bring them online ?

 

If do option 2: Is is possibale ? Document  "HP StorageWorks Controller Module Installation Instructions" indicates : "When two controllers are installed in an enclosure, they must be the same model. Mixing controller types in the same enclosure is not supported." 

 

Please advise us the right/better solution.

 

Current controllers' information:

Storage Controller CPU Type: Intel Tolapai 1200MHz

Thanks in advanced.

Re: P2000 G3 upgrade both controllers

As you already said, option 2 is not supported. Option 1 should pick up all the configuration (since the config is stored on disks and enclosure backplane).

Hope this helps!
