Need to Add Disk Shelves Multipath Card to FAS3140


I need to know if we can add a fiber channel card to each controller without a shutdown maintenance window to allow for multipath with the FC disk shelves.  Will is takeover\giveback be sufficient to add the card to each controller?  Is there anything more we would need to do?



Hi Mister San

As Riley said you is possible.

I think you can use this kb (writed for Replacing card) however it's close to install a new card.

I have done this kind of action without any issue.



A takeover / giveback is sufficient for a card install. Once a head has been taken over by the other head, the head can be shutdown and work completed on it.

Ensure that there are free PCI slots and that the type of filer can use the fibre card in the available slots as well.
