This is a question / request for assurance...I have a fully loaded FAS2050, and recently I have inherited a better licensed FAS2050 empty chassis. What I would like to do is physically move my drives from the current chassis to the better licensed one (config'd with the same name and IP info), but I really don't want to lose data or volume information. Perfect world being that i turn the new one on and I'm back in business like nothing happened.
My question to the community is, what are proper chassis swap steps and, better yet, is this a real risky thing to do? Any inputs are greatly appreciated.
What? You are going from a fas2050 to a fas2050. This seems like wasted effort. The 2050 is EOA/EOL at some point this year or last year, I can't remember. You should make a case to get a 2254 and start a migration.
Yes...sorry...I meant to say that I have a chassis with a controller that I want to move my existing drives too....This better licensed controller and chassis are needed until a larger hardware refresh occurs next fiscal. Thanks guys!
