We need to swap out our old clustered FAS3140 (7.3.6) heads for a clustered FAS3240 because we hit the disk limit. The existing unit has a mix for FC, SATA, and SAS shelves. Has anyone performed this before or know if it has been documented? I came across a NetApp document but it didn't apply to our systems/configuration.
Thanks in advance.

Are you a NetApp partner? The "net2" app has documentation for controller swaps including "Upgrading a FAS31xx system to a FAS32xx system" documentation. Your NetApp team or VAR can likely provide that PDF which contains information specific to 3140-->3240 head swap. We have done a lot of these and create a custom plan for every upgrade (port to port mapping since ports change, checking for wwn/wwpn and lun serial numbers after swap for example, disk reassign, mailbox destroy commands, etc.)

I think so... I don't see NDA written on them but are PS documents not for regular public view anywhere else I can find. Your partner or netapp likely will want to be involved in the controller swap if you haven't done one before... it is a set fee typically and even our experienced customers often have us do them for them since it isn't an every day event.
