Disk Shelf ID Physically Set to 2 but showing as shelf ID 175 in OnTap?

Hi

We just added a new shelf of DS4243 to our FAS3210C.

When I connected the shelf up I didn't realise the Shelf ID was still flashing. I then did a 'disk assign all'.

When I look in the filer (using OnCommand System Manager) now it shows the disks as being having Shelf ID 175.

Have I made a mistake? is this OK?

Thanks

You can change the shelf ID at any time.  Your aggregates will still be recognized and come back online as if nothing happened.
