How to transform a Metro Custer to a single Cluster

Hi all,

We would like to transform our Fabric Metro-Cluster to a single Cluster and we want to group both FAS3170 in the same computer room.

On each FAS3170, the mirrored aggregate contains the root.

It is an impossible issue ?

What is the best way to perform it ?

Many thanks for your help

Remove aggregate plexes in one location, move head from this location to another, remove FC-VI cards (you won’t need them for local HA pair), insert head in chassis, cable shelves for local configuration. Basically just it.

Many thanks. I transfer the last datas and I can try this solution.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay to be answered.

To understand well before action. On each FAS3170, the mirrored aggregate contains the root and I just need to remove aggregate plexes in one location without problem on the root volume ? There is no problem with the datas accommodated in pool0 ?

I think, I can extend shelf without stopping the production.

Many thanks

Yes, you can split mirror without any issue. Just pay attention which plex is on which site.
