Disk shelves can be added to standalone or clustered storage controllers without powering down the appliance or loss of service to clients. Use the diagrams in the following sections to properly connect one or more disk shelves. After connecting expansion storage, verify redundant paths to each disk shelf in the Maintenance > Hardware section of the BUI.
Note: The diagrams are abstractions and are not intended to depict actual hardware. Slot locations may differ from those shown.

Expanding storage may require adding another HBA to your configuration. To add an HBA for a standalone controller, interrupt service and power down the appliance. For a clustered configuration, you can power down each controller, reconnect to the new storage chain, and power on individually with no interruption to service. Refer to the following sections for procedures.
