Installing the new nodes

When you upgrade by moving storage, you begin by installing the new nodes and attaching power, console, and network connections to the new nodes.

Steps

  1. If needed, install any adapters in the new nodes, following the instructions in the appropriate adapter installation guide.
  2. Install the new nodes, following the Installation and Setup Instructions for the platform.
    Do not attach disk selves from the original nodes to the new nodes at this point.
  3. Attach power and console connections to the new nodes, following the Installation and Setup Instructions for the platform.
  4. Attach the network cables.
  5. Transfer all remaining cables from the original node to the corresponding ports on the new node.
    This includes Fibre Channel or other external disk shelf cables, and Ethernet cables.
