I have a site that wants to expand into a second cabinet. For the sake of simpler SAS cabling, they want to move DS4243's in one rack to the same SAS stack, and provision DS4243's in the new network rack as a new SAS stack. Currently, DS4243's in the original network rack are split between two SAS stacks.
Can I re-cable the original DS4243's into a single SAS stack without a system interruption?
I second that. It's unsupported, but it works so long as the disks are all spares. I favour unowning the disks first also, just so the filer doesn't recognised owned spares disappearing. If the disks have data on them, then no chance, you'll cause all manor of havoc!
