Re: va7100 & used disk.

Hello,

Yes you can. Just enter the disks ONE AT A TIME and allow time for rebuild between each one. They will rebuild automatically as soon as you enter the disk if AutoRebuild is enabled, which usually is by default.

It does not matter whether the disks are new or have data in them for the VA. For it it's just a disk ready to be used in it's own VA architecture.

HTH,

Re: va7100 & used disk.

No need to add them one at a time. It???s faster to just put them all in at once. Disks used in another VA will generate a ???Previously Used??? warning message. You must manually include these disks (use Command View sdm) before the array will use them.
