Isilon X200 Recognized Disk Size Discrepency

I have a rejuvenated Isilon X200 3-Node cluster.  Each node has 12 - 3TB drives (previously they were 500G drives).  I have re-imaged the cluster with OneFS 7.2.1.x.     Reported size for each node is 5.4TB when it should be 36TB.  For some reason it is only seeing a 12 drive 500G filled tray, which is what the node used to have installed.     Drives are Isilon approved 3TB drives.   During the image load, I did see that the node reported a "device unexpected size" however I don't know how to tell each node there are 3TB drives installed.  Thoughts to get cluster to see all 36-3TB drives??

Hi,

Thanks for your question about drive sizes. The device is aware of the configuration it shipped with. https://dell.to/3AH105d Phone support may be able to change this to work with the larger drives.

 

 

Let us know if you have any additional questions.


Thanks,

Any special reason to install an unsupported OneFS version?  I recommend installing a new oneFS version, applying the most recent DSP and node firmware

No special reason. OneFS 7.2.1.x is the last image I have, which come to find out, it's generic and doesn't recognize the 3TB drives.  In contact with support to get latest/last version available configured for the Original configuration.    Since I can't recover root password, re-image is the last resort.  Cheers

@wpetering1 , you can't just plug and play 500GB ->3T drives on Isilon. You need Dell to config it.
