Migrate EMC CX3-20 FLARE OS from 10K drives to 15K drives
Posted on 2009-02-17
Our current setup is a EMC Clariion CX3-20 with 4 DAE's
DAE 0 - 15 300GB 10K drives
DAE 1 - 15 146GB 15K drives
DAE 2 - 15 300GB 15K drives
DAE 3 - 15 300GB 15K drives - Brand new in the box, no data
We currently have our FLARE OS (latest version) installed on DAE 0 and wish to relocate the FLARE OS to DAE 3. At the time of the orginal FLARE installation the only 15K drives that were available were 146GB, however now that the 300GB 15K drives are out we wish to move the FLARE OS to 15K drives for better performance. The biggest reason for the move is that because our FLARE OS is running on a DAE 0 with only 2Gbps capable the entire SAN is only running at 2Gbps. It is my understanding that moving the FLARE to DAE 3 will allow the SAN to run at full 4Gbps speed.
Is there an easy way to migrate the FLARE, or do we have to pay to have it done?
