I believe the information is quite clear in your previous thread https://community.emc.com/thread/196200...

     1. Use SolVe Desktop to genera "re-image" guide

     2. Download FLARE OE image from support.emc.com or EMC Service Partner Web

This is an official forum thus no one would post any confidential or internal content here. That's why I told your ask your local EMC service partner for help. Both the procedure generator and FLARE OE images are EMC's intellectual property.

Hi Roger, good morning

your information is 100% clear, the problem is because I don't have access to the files, that is my problem, do you think if I contact the EMC support they will help me? as I mentioned on my last message that is for my Home Lab, and that is just for test and learning about EMC Storages, I think it's a good idea to have professionals interested in learning about EMC technologies...

I do not know what can I do

regards

if your array (or components of it) are no longer under an active maintenance contract, calling EMC support is pointless. They will look at the serial number and tell you it's not under support and won't do a thing for you. That is the danger of buying stuff on Ebay, especially EMC hardware.  Your best bet is to find a local 3rd party resller that resells aftermarket EMC gear and buy those VAULT drives from them, i highly doubt they would sell you just the software but you never know.

google local resellers in your area and give them a call, find out how much they would sell those VAULT drives for.

There is no way to recreate any Data just by adding disks to the DAE 0-4. The only thing you can do is to ORDER a FLARE Drive package ( i think you wont be able to order for CX3 because EOSL)

You won't be able to install OS on unprepared disks.

@Roger W

THE SOLVE PROCEDURE   

recover boot image should only be on "running" systems ( with OS on FLAREdisks ) all others need

a FLARE DRIVE Pack ( prepared disk 0-4 )

Hi Franklin,

no i guess you wont be able using these drives. Anyway I'm not sure if you are able to use disks from cx3-80....

@all: can i add a DPE with cx3-80... flare Drives and start up a cx3-40? Im not sure and never tried it bevore.

Anyway i'm sorry to tell but I personally thing you wont be able to just add ( ebay ... ) drives and use cx3 without any knowledge or at least the Procedure Generator and addtional downloads....

CX3 is EOSL 31.03.2014 but maybe you are lucky and an EMC Partner close to you can still provide you Flare drives...
