Hi,

here is a doc. stating useful info:

You can hot ADD a shelf on the NEW controller.

so prepare for downtime when you remove the shelf, but not when you add. Having said this its always safer to power down and add.

Re: Disk shelf replacement

Navin, on FAS3000 series filers, have a look if you are using software or disk based ownership. also make sure to have the same raid lables, eg. go from a ontap 7.2.x filer to a 7.2.x filer causes no trouble but moving the shelf from a 7.3.x to a 7.2.x might give you a small headache ;-)
