Prepping storage, adding additional storage

stlhost asked
Last Modified: 2015-07-29
We are adding a powervault md1200 to our setup as additional storage. We have a PV MD3220 in use current and it will connect the other  in Unified mode. To save some time is it possible to connect the md1200 to a vacant system and prep it first? (firmware updates, raid setup)

My second question, after it is in place do we have to run software on a separate system or can we use the existing storage manager to manage both?
