I need your help to find out answers on some of the queries I have regarding our NetApp environment. I have a FAS2040 with DATA Ontap version 7.3.3 with a CIFS flexible volume size around 2 TB. We need to increase the size of this volume to 100 TB. Right now total aggregate size for the two controllers is around 11 TB and 6 TB. Now can we do the following?
1. Buy disk arrays and assign 100 TB to a single aggregate.
2. Allocate 100TB on step 1 to a flexible volume to use on CIFS
What are the steps required to accomplish these and when will NetApp stop supporting FAS2040? Thanks in advance for your time.
