Simplivity Upgrade the existing Simplivity nodes from Small to Medium

Dears,

Please note that we have two existing Simplivity nodes gen10 running OVC 3.7.7 , the storage need to be expanded noting that the simplivity array controller is precofigured by HPE when shipped.

My question: how is the procedure if we want to add more disk and merge them with the existing logical drive without loosing data ?

NB:it is a production evironment.

Thank you,

Hi @RalphYammine 

Thanks for using the HPE SimpliVity Forum.

I would recommend reaching out to your local HPE accounts team to discuss. There is a service available for such work and they would be happy to explain in more detail.

It is a procedure which would require specialist assistance and should not be attempted without the correct guidance from the team that carries out this work.

Hope this helps!

Re: Simplivity Upgrade the existing Simplivity nodes from Small to Medium

Just to clarify:

1. Upgrades are available from S - > M and M -> L, as they all use the same disk size

2. There is both a hardware (SSDs) and software (SVT license) cost to this. Going from S ->M also includes adding a second RAID controller to separate the boot drives from the data path, but all of this is bundled into one HW Upgrade SKU.

3. The upgrade process is destructive to the node - it will be removed from the Federation, re-imaged, and re-deployed. The data will be protected as long as the node is in a cluster - there will be another copy of the data.

4. The upgrade includes the services to perform the work
