Re: Drive upgrade in Existing Nodes

Have you considered leasing some 72NL nodes and using a (temporary) SmartPools license?

1 := 1 TB node, 36NL

2 := 2 TB upgraded node, 72NL

L := leased node, 72NL

Build two pools and use SmartPools to migrate:

111111+LL      start, single old pool

11111+2LL      2LL: new pool


111+222LL      111: must be finally migrated at once, because two nodes don't make a pool


.222222..      done

Depending on the used capacity on the current cluster,

zero to three nodes would be required to be leased.
