I have a Dell PowerVault MD3000i it came with a single array controller, I have bought a 2nd array controller and now need to add it to the MD3000i. I have plugged it in with the hope that the 2nd array controller would be picked up by the MS3000i and that I would be able to then configure the ip addresses but this is not the case. Does anyone know how I can configure the ip addresses on the new enclosure and copy the configuration (disk setup) from the existing controller to the new controller?

Shouldn't you contact DELL for this, since you just bought the 2nd Array controller ?


I hope this helps !
