Hello,

We currently have a 4 node 8440 that is half populated with a total of 48 SSDs, 12 in each cage. We have acquired an additional 48 to populate the remaining free slots. My question is, when adding the disks, do I fully populate cage 0, and then fully populate cage 1, then 2 etc.....or do I do a pair of drives in cage 0, followed by a pair in cage 1 etc. The entire array will be using the same drive type and size. Thanks.

Doesn't really matter if you add them in one go.
