Hi.
Can anybody help me with an answer, I search through the forum, but didn't find any answer.
We have the following 3PAR configuration:
- 3PAR 7400 with 2 nodes
- 6 shelves/cages
- each full with HDD's(24/)
If we want to upgrade with another shelve, what is the procedure?
We need to buy another controller with 2 nodes so he can manage the rest of the shelves that we will buy, or it is ok the one that we have now.
Thanks in advance.

2-node 7400 can support 10 cages (including node cage) for a total of 240 drives. So you just need a drive cage and disks.

The entire 7000 series is in end of life, so the available upgrade options could be limited.

Thank you for the quick answer.
