VNXE3100 - Swap SSD

Hi guys,

We have a failed SSD drive on our storage processor and our support contract has lapsed.  Don't worry, the box isn't a mission critical machine.  I was just wondering if I can throw any blank SSD in to replace the failure, or does it have to be the 14GB SSD from EMC?

Cheers.

Yes - you need a Dell EMC specific disk as the format and firmware on the disk is specifically for EMC arrays. Off the shelf SSD's will not work.

Thanks for getting back to me, Glen. 

I'll see if our Dell supplier can order one for us.

Many thanks.
