Note: The recommended process for adding an expansion shelf enclosure involves the following tasks:
Use the system --license [--validate] [--add] command to validate and install the license for the expansion shelf enclosure. For specific information, see system --license [--validate] [--add].
Power off (if needed) the Dell MD1200 storage array, physically connect the expansion shelf enclosure to the base DR Series system, and power on the expansion shelf enclosure.
Use the system --add_storage --enclosure <service tag> command .
Note: Each added expansion shelf enclosure must be equal to or greater than each DR Series system internal drive slot capacity (0–11). Because 1 TB drives are the smallest one supported by the expansion shelf enclosure you add, the 600 Gigabyte (GB) DR Series system needs to use 1 TB or larger sized drives in any expansion shelf enclosure added to the base system.
Note: To verify the current types of storage on a DR Series system, use the DR Series system CLI command: system --show --storage. For more information, see system --show [--storage].
