Adding additional Enclosures to EVA4400 - does the Enclosure ID need to be changed?

Hi,

 

we are planning to add four additional enclosures to our EVA4400 (XCS 11001100) which already has 4 enclosures attached. The new enclosures are demo hardware and already have pre-configured IDs which are overlapping with our existing enclosure IDs.

 

The "HP EVA4400 M6412 drive enclosure installation instructions" states the following:

 

 „2. With the remaining power cord, connect the other power supply to a cabinet power distribution
module. The power UID power switch LED turns green. The I/O module index number will likely
display 00, but if not, ignore the index number at this time.“

 

Do we have to change the enclosure IDs before connecting them to the EVA? Or will the EVA recognize that the enclosure IDs are already present and change this automatically?

 

Thanks
Michael

For Info: We just added the enclosures and found out that the ID did not need to be changed - all IDs were assigned automatically and without any problem.
