Adding MSA70 to P2000 G3

When adding an MSA70 to a P2000 G3, is downtime incurred? Can I shut down one storage controller, connect the device, roll back, shut down the other, connect the device again, and then start back up the controllers? Is it just a hot plug upgrade?

You can connect MSA70 to a P2000 G3 without shutting down a storage controllers (on-line). MSA70 must have firmware 2.18 or later to work with P2000 G3.

Can someone please provide more specific information upon how this is done??

We have an MSA 2012i which we're upgrading to G3 controllers, and we need to be certain that we can add on an MSA 70 later this year or next year.

 

Thank you, Tom

FYI Mathew
The MSA70 quickspecs say...

NOTE: MSA70 is NOT supported behind a MSA2000 G2 (LFF) or a P2000 G3 (LFF)
