how to expand a 0.5T vba to 4T or larger

I deployed a 0.5T vba of vmware protection solution initially,now the capacity is far smaller than what i need,Can i expand the capacity to 4T or larger ? or must I  decommission the old one than deploy a new 4T vba from scratch?

thanks and best regards?

Hi Aditya,

The Disk structure is different in both the versions.

EMC Backup and Recovery appliance (0.5 TB OVA)

• CPU: 4 * 2 GHz

• Disks: 3* 250 GB

• Backup storage capacity: 0.5 TB

• OS: 250 GB

EMC Backup and Recovery appliance (4 TB OVA)

• CPU: 4 * 2 GHz

• Disks: 6 * 1 TB

• Backup storage capacity: 4 TB

• OS: 250 GB

You have to decommision the 0.5 TB & install 4 TB NVP alliance from scratch ,

Note : Decommissioning the NVP appliance will delete the existing data.

Regards

Hari Prakash.
