Adding diskenclosure EVA8000 online

Hi!

I'm soon to add a diskenclosure ta a EVA8000.

The customer want me to do this without any downtime...

I've done it previously on av EVA 3K and 4K, but can you do it on a EVA8000...

And most important, is it supported and is there a whitepaper or a "howto" available?

Regards

Dragomir,

The disk shelf add-on to EVA8000 is similar to EVA5000, But if you need to add new loop switches, you will incur the downtime. Also see this

I have this very old expansion guide for EVA5000 enclosure add-on. Hope this helps you understand the concept and planning the add-on.
