Having Spare Drives for Nimble Array

Hello Community, i have a customer who wants me to keep spare drives for a HF20 (Q8B48B) in case of failure so they can have an immediate replacement. They are located on island, so they want to have local spares.

I know that with infosite, they shouldnt have to worry too much about this due to predictive failure, and they will also have a PC support active.

Is having spares something that can be done? How can i determine the part number for the spare drives?

Hello,

Yes it's possible to have spare drives. It will depend on which drive, of course. You, or your distributor can find spare drives and SSDs on the OCA quote tool.

Hello and thank you for the response.  I was unaware that right there in OCA, you can add spare part numbers as an addon configuration.  It was easy to do.  Thanks for helping me resolve this question.
