Hello!

 

Is it possible to just swap FAS2552 controllers with new FAS2750 in the same chassis?

Is this controller upgrade procedure supported?

 

Thank you!

 

With regards,

Klemen

The full answer is no.

The FAS2552 chassis (a DS2246 shelf) is not compatible with the FAS2750 (which uses a DS224C shelf)

Last time I looked at this (few years back). It was a no because of the newer backplane.    There was the option to move the drives to the 2750 (offline), providing HWU showed support for it.
