    How to add, replace or change HDDs in DIVAR IP 5000 AIO?

    ⚠️ A DIP 5000 AIO is configured as a JBOD box and if one drive goes bad then you will have to replace that drive and all the data will be lost

     

    Step-by-step guide

     

    Step 1: Replace the faulty drive, insert the additional or new hard drive 

     

    1. Press the red button of the defective or empty slot

    Note the letter allocated to the drive, in our case H and make sure the values are:

    • File system = NTFS
    • Allocation unit size = DEFAULT
    • Volume label  = NEW VOLUME

    Step 5: Creating a .vhd volume for the iSCSI drive using “New iSCSI Virtual Disk Wizard”

     

    Go to iSCSI in the same list at Server Manager and right click in the iSCSI virtual Disks and select New iSCSI Virtual Disk

    Add the path of the drive you created in our case H:\ select Next -> Enter a name as example vhd_H

    As you know, the recommended maximum size of a LUN is approximately 2TB .

    Depending on the disk size you are adding in your system, you need to be sure the size of each LUN does not exceed the 2TB.

    As presented in the picture the size of the HDD can be of 2TB, this will lead to the available free space for a LUN of 1,82 TB

    If the HDD has a size of 4 TB for example then you can give it a Virtual Disk size of ~ 1.88 TB.

     

    Proceed through the Wizard steps, select the existing iSCSI target

    - check all the details in the confirmation tab and select the CREATE button.

    • Open Configuration Client
    • Go to the iSCSI drive of your local VRM
      • Right click and select Scan Target
    • The LUN list on TG0 should be updated
