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
Depending on the used capacity on the current cluster,
zero to three nodes would be required to be leased.
