lets say we have an old 2240 7-Mode system with some (rather new) DS2246 shelves.
Those shelves do not contain the root aggregates & volumes.
Is it possible to reuse them on the new cDOT system WITHOUT loosing data ?
Here is why I ask, the old system has around 50TB SAS capacity.
If I need to buy now an additional 50TB just to move data that will be a) way more expensive and b) a pain to move the data.
And after the move I would have another 50TB of capacity just lying around for probably another 1-2 years until they are needed.
So you can imagine what my boss will say to me...
