MSL6030 drive upgrade

Hi

I have an MSL6030 attached via SCSI with two 460 drives. Is it possible to swap these with two 960 drives or is there other considerations to take into account?

Carl,

This can be done.
Check al your firmware revisions before you do it.
Be sure that the firmware of your MSL is compatible with the LTO960

I have just upgraded my MSL firmware to 520 and the drives to F6AW.

Hi Carl,

This is the MSL Drive Matrix, it shows you the upgrade paths for these units, and it is true, you should always have the most current FW on the unit.
