Minimum number of physical disks per enclosure? (EVA 5000)

Hello,

What is the minimum number of disks that can be placed into a disk enclosure (aka "shelf")?

There is enough money left in this year's budget to purchase another disk enclosure but only two disks. This would be installed in an EVA 5000 with 10 fully populated disk enclosures.

The disks would be added to an existing 112 disk disk group. I believe that 8 is the minimum number per disk group, but need to know the minimum number of disks per disk enclosure, if any.

Thanks!

You need a minimum of 4 disks to activate a disk enclosure.
