Replacement parts needed: one (1) 2050/2052 chassis and two (2) 2050/2052 controllers??

Still perhaps less expensive than buying new hardware...

Yes. You are correct.

Purcahsing the  appropriate bundle package listed in page 4 of MSA 2050 quickspecs sheet would be the best option:

You could reuse the hard drives and any attached compatible disk enclosures this way.

I looked at the list. It appears the same as buying a new one.

The below is $11400.

If I use this can I effectively put all my 2040 disks into it without losing anything???

Buying this is essentially a replacement.

HPE MSA 2050 SAN Dual Controller SFF Storage Q1J01A
NOTE: Includes an SFF Array Chassis, two MSA 2050 SAN controllers, two AC power supplies, two .7m PDU cords (IEC C14), one rack-mount kit..

The product Q1J01A should allow you to perform data in place upgrade provided you have SFF hard drives in controller enclosure.

@Tom Lyczko ......Yes your understanding is correct.........you require One 2050/2052 chassis and two 2050/2052 controllers.

You can use existing drives which you were using in MSA 2040 and that will save your cost. Provided all drives are supported with MSA 2050 otherwise you can't use any unsupported drives in MSA 2050 from MSA 2040

MSA 2040 and MSA 2050 both are different but still you have option to move your existing data from MSA 2040 to MSA 2050 with applied conditions.

If you really want to discuss about your specific requirement then it's consultancy job for which you need to contact HPE. This is public forum and limited information can only be shared to give you idea only.

 

Hope this helps!

OIC!! Thank you!! I don't know when I will actually pursue this but I am happy to have all this information for planning ahead. By the time we are ready to replace the 2040, the appropriate model will probably be an MSA 200500 model costing $111,000 thanks to the tariffs.
