Hello Everyone,

I wanted to bring to your attention a document I put together if the need becomes necessary to add storage to a CIVS-MSP server with an existing raid 5 configuration.  I hope you find this document useful when adding additional storage to your server with available empty drive bays.

Thank you,

Jim

Hello! Can you help me?

Could we add 2TB HDD in the CPS-MSP with 6x1TB HDD?

Yes, you may go ahead and added the 2TB HDD but RAID will only consider the least drive space in the drive array. so RAID will only consider 1TB of 2TB HDD.

Hope this helps.

Raghav, glad to see you again. We have worked with my CPAM case a few months ago.

Thank you for the answer. I want to add 1TB HDD, but i have not seen them in price and configuration, only 1TB SAS HDD for UCS and 2TB SATA HDD for MSP.

Is it right?

Hey Rifnur, Glad to working with you again.

Here we go, Normal with CPS-MSP server you get 2 TB HDD drive these are SATA drive, this can't be used with UCS server, I'm not sure about which UCS server is been used.

but if cisco.com should give all the Price and configuration assistance.

How to Buy --> Configuration --> Estimate and Configurations --> Create Configurations. this configuration could be verified as well.

let me know, if you have any questions.

sorry Rifnur, some how i missed your reply.

RAID 5 is supported 3  or more hard drives.

not sure which version is other server running on, if it's 6.3.X, you have to download the 6.3.1 recovery iso image, install and upgrade to required version.

recovery image is available at cisco.com

let me know, if you have any more questions.
