2040 reuse DS4342 Disks in 3220


I have a customer with a 2040 who wants to reuse all the existing disk shelves. The Internal disks just have the root aggregates, other aggregates are on the shelves.

Is it possible to move this aggregates with the data intact to 3220 Controllers?

If so is this procedure documented anywhere?



Yes, it is possible. Just connect shelves to new filer and assign disks. Aggregate will be found automatically. They may be shown as “foreign” in which case you just need to online them, possibly after renaming.
