We upgraded our (4x iq_32000x-ssd) with 3 more X400 nodes, with exactly the same configuration (disk, memory). After I added the new nodes I realized that they went to a new node pool, which is not what we wanted. Now we have a pool with 4 nodes and another with 3 nodes, and each one is protected with 2:1 , doubling the cluster overhead (correct me if my overhead logic is wrong).
I opened a case and they are telling me that merging these node pools is impossible since the nodes have different config IDs:
nyst0087-1# isi_for_array isi_hw_status|grep -i config | sort
nyst0087-1: Config: 851-0105-02
nyst0087-2: Config: 851-0105-02
nyst0087-3: Config: 851-0105-02
nyst0087-4: Config: 851-0105-02
nyst0087-5: Config: 851-0074-01
nyst0087-6: Config: 400-0029-01
nyst0087-7: Config: 400-0029-01
nyst0087-8: Config: 400-0029-01
Is this true ?
(We do not have SmartPools licenese, and with this configuration we do not need it)
