The enclosure can be added online (should be done by somebody with experience, though) and nothing need to be done with CA - it replicates virtual disks and does not care about enclosure details (good thing).

What is the procedure if i shutdown the controllers ????

I have to do anything in RSM or Continuos Access with the jobs replicating ?????

A lot of thanks.

For nice handling, you could indeed suspend replication before shutting down the system.
Do you use RSM to control CA?

OK, so maybe you want to suspend RSM job scheduling during the EVA maintenance. It's been a while since I looked at RSM, so I'm not sure it is that easy. Otherwise you could disable affected jobs or just stop the whole RSM service while the EVA is down.
