Hi All, Quick Question
We got a new hafl populated SAS Disk Shelf DS4243, then We passed the 12 disks to other Disk shelves
Now the customer want 9 units of 100GB SSDs
Can I use this empty shelf?

If the shelf is completely empty (SSD shelves must be isolated) you should be able to use it as a new SSD shelf. Keep in mind that you'll want to add it as a new stack on a controller which only serves out SAS & SSD disk. This will ensure that CP commits are not hindered by slower disk on the back end. The outstanding question would be whether NetApp sells just the disk.
