Apologies if this has been discussed previously, however I cannot find a discussion.
Can I upgrade an Existing data Domain DD2500 with 21 TB RAW capacity with the addition of an expansion shelve; before first populating the existing 5 Empty slots on the DD2500 controller?
The DXP allows to do that, however some colleagues have different opinions
Thank you for your time
I can't say I've ever considered this before but I can't see anything that says this is not supported.
If DXP says OK - that's one clue that it's OK.
Also, this does explicitly say "OR" - so can't see why you can't do this;
I would personally worry that you could do with more spindles in the head for throughput but that's only an assumption on my part...
