most efficient way to add new disks to disk group

Hi.

what's the most efficient way of adding 12 new disks to an existing disk group in eva 4400? Is it by adding them individually or by adding them in one go? If by adding them in one go, how do i do it?

thanks!

If you click on "group" on the ungrouped disk page, CV will ask you for the number of disks and the destination group. Here you can add all of your disks in "one go".

Hope this helps!

Hi glenn,


Plug in one disk drive and watch for it to appear in CV-EVA. This makes it much less likely to produce duplicate disk drive names.
Then plug in the next disk drive and repeat.
Disk drives should be divided equally across all disk drive enclosures and there must be a minimum of 4 drives in an enclosure.

Finally go to the disk group and press [Add disk]. Add all 8 disk drives at once.
