a customer has bought a new fas8020 where he has migrated all data from a fas2240 with two shelf, now we have to transform the old storage in two DS2246 shelf that need to be attached to the new storage.
The old system is already updated to Ontap 8.2.1 and there are no data that need to be preserved (all is already moved), so we can transform it in simple shelf (we already have necessary IOM6 modules).
But, reading documentation about this procedure, is required to shutdown the new system to attach the old shelf.

the problem is that we cannot shutdown the new storage.
there is a procedure to do that?
how erase the old fas2240, convert it and attach it to a live fas8040 without disruption?
thanks for support
