We have one storagetek 2540 storage which connect's two host via FC cable. We need extend capacity of this storage by adding new HDD's without big downtime. Hwo can describe best practise step by step? I have no practise on this sphere.Thank You !
There is not much information here to work with. If there are still unused slots, simply remove the filler panel, insert new hard drive. If there are already 12 drives in the array you may need to add an extension tray. I am pretty confident that can be done online. Insert tray into rack, connect cables. done.
That would be the hardware part. Do you want to reconfigure your old virtual disks or just configure new volumes and luns? The latter is really straight forward from the documentation. The former option requires some more planning, work and downtime.
The docs have some more information: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E20734_01/index.html
YES , still unused slots. I can insert new hard drive. But this is production storage. I have few question:
1. How can i backup all information ?
2. How can i backup storage config?
3. If i expand volumes , all data will be lost ?
Thank you for answer.
