We have a new DAE being installed on our CX4-240. (15 x 1TB SATA). The EMC engineer has scheduled the install during the day. I know that the storage processors typically do not need to be rebooted during the addition of a new enclosure but I wanted to see if there are any other concerns with perfomring this install during business hours?
Thanks for sharing any thoughts!
We always suggest installation by EMC Tech. However, as dynamox mentioned in other thread yes, if you are confident enough you can go ahead and definitely install the DAE by yourself.
Step by Step instructions are provided in Procedure Generator with the Checklist before the install.
If you require any documentation or help before the install you may also contact our Live Chat Support.
Don't worry about this action during business hours. I never had any problems with DEA installation on a running CX.
i would still be cautious, i never thought double drive failure in the same raid group would happen to me, guess what happened to me the other day ?
double &*^&^%^&% drive failure in the same raid group, rg is toast.
Like it said in 1917....Lucky Strike - It's toasted!
