Step 1: Power down the controllers (non-data preservation)

All operations must be shut down before you can power down the controllers.


  1. If the existing SAS-2 array is still accessible, delete all volume groups, power down both controllers, and remove all cables.
  2. Record the serial number from the SAS-2 controller shelf that you will be converting to a drive shelf.
  3. If drive security is in use for the existing array, ensure that the security key is available.

After you finish

Go to Step 2: Power down the controllers (non-data preservation).
