Adding a DAE tray to existing EMC VNX5300 SAN would you expand the pool or create new

Last Modified: 2012-07-12
Hello EE,

When you add a DAE to an existing EMC VNX5300, we currently have a pool 0 with user capacity 4286.355.  We are running out of space so I am adding the DAE and wondering given I am running out of space would I be best to expand pool 0 or are there issues with having one larg pool?
