Upgrading or replacing modules in an HA pair

In an HA pair with redundant pathing, you can upgrade or replace disk shelf modules without interrupting access to storage.

These procedures are for DS14mk2 or DS14mk4 disk shelves.

If your configuration includes SAS disk shelves, refer to the following documents on the NetApp Support Site:

  • For SAS disk shelf management, see the Installation and Service Guide for your disk shelf model.
  • For cabling SAS disk shelves in an HA pair , see the Universal SAS and ACP Cabling Guide.
  • For cabling SAS disk shelves in a MetroCluster configuration using FibreBridge 6500N bridges, see Configuring a MetroCluster system with SAS disk shelves and FibreBridge 6500N bridges.
  • For cabling SAS disk shelves in a stretch MetroCluster configuration using SAS optical cables, see Configuring a stretch MetroCluster system with SAS disk shelves and SAS optical cables.
