ansarvma

Hi,

I have to move Netapp FAS8020 Storage system to New datacenter in different floor. Could anyone please guide the steps to do it.

 

Can i simply

Shutdown the Netapp Storage controller and disk shelfs

Remove the controller and disk shelf from Rack

Mount the storage in new rack

power it on

 

Anyone had this experience before please guide.

 

Thanks.

Here's the offical power down doc -> https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1003836/~/what-is-the-procedure-for-graceful-shutdown-and-power-up-of-a-storage-system . 

 

But that's basically it.   I can tell you that pre-labeling cables (both sas and network/fc) helps smooth things along when doing a forklift.
