Adding in a new disk shelf on Netbackup Appliance



1.     Rack mount the New disk shelf (xx TB)

Whenever i have added a disk shelf i have taken the whole system down first as we are plugging in SAS cables here - so i like to work on the safe side and this also ensure the bus is fully scanned too.

2. Connect the SAS cables from new Disk shelf (2*SAS IN) to the existing Appliance disk shelf (2* SAS out ports)






3. Power ON New disk shelf and wait for 10-20 mins to let initialize the disk shelf completely.

     
Depending on your configuration (Master/Media) (Advanced Disk Pool / Dedupe Pool) you'll have the following partitions (volumes) available.

Advanced Disk
Configuration
MSDP

Once you add the new tray you'll get an extra disk (highlighted below)
You can then decide which partitions to increase.

Usually I prefer doing it from Web GUI


Ex:- manage > storage > add unit_3 to grow your respective pool
