Saturday June 23rd, was the big
Storage Array upgrade at work. This comprised of performing
a hardware upgrade changing our current
CLARiiON CX600 into a
CX3-80 model. Sixty host servers would lose access to their storage and were shutdown. The servers ran from
VMware. The majority of our short staffed department was onsite that day to share the pain.
This was an in place hardware upgrade, but required an additional
1U battery that must be installed at the
bottom of the rack. To obtain the additional 1U space, required the guide rails for the storage processor
and nine disk array units(DAE2) had to be moved up 1U each. The hardware upgraded also required the swap out
of the old CX600 storage processor
(embedded NT), to the new CX3-80
(embedded XP). The process started around 7:30am Saturday and finally finished round 1:30am Sunday morning.
