MD1200 Adding Additonal Drives
Posted on 2013-12-20
I was wondering if you could help me out. I currently have a Dell MD1200 attached to a 2012 Hyper-V hypervisor VIA a Dell PERC H810 6GB SAS connector. The MD1200 currently has 6 1TB SAS drives. It also has 6 bays that are not being used.
I want to add an additioal Hyper-V hypervisor to the MD1200 and set up a Cluster and ideally would like to populate the JBOD with 6 more 1TB drives.
Can I just order the proper drives and add them to this box? If so, would I need to power everything down to do this or can it be done on the fly?
Thanks for any and all help on this.
