Re: Move CX3 DAE to CX4

Absolutely, both arrays support DAE3P/DAE4P so you can add a CX3-20 DAE to a CX4-240 system, You will need to set the enclosure address on the CX4 array once you add the DAE to it. You will need then to reboot management servers on both SPs to make the CX4 identify the new DAE

Hope it helps

CX200/400/600

CX300/500/700

CX3-10/20/40/80

CX4-120/240/480/960
