eva 4400 additional disk shelf

Hi,

we have a 4400 with one disk shelf that is going to be fully populated. we are going to be adding a new disk shelf with four drives.

for best practice would i have to remove 6 disks from shelf one and add them to shelf two and then add two disks (new ones) to each shelf?

This would then be eight disks in each shelf.

Thanks

Re: eva 4400 additional disk shelf

Hi,

If new disks are also going to be in same disk group you can simply remove 4 disks from self one and add them with 4 new disks to shelf two. But you will need to shut down EVA prior to removing existing disks (all same time).

I do not see value of doing this unless that you are planning to add more disk shelfs in the future (total 8 ).
