EVA Upgradation-Suggestion

Dear All,


We have EVA 4400. 146GB*12 i.e. 1365 GB storage.


Out of that 95% is allocated and  only 70 GB free space.


Now no space is required for atleast 2 years.


I need a valuable suggestion:


1. Whether we have to go for a new encloser. which may cost high


2. Can we change existing HDDs with higher capacity HDDs i.e. now 300 GBs available.


3. if 2nd point is possible then can we change some HDDs in existing EVA. the reason is this

   storage is shared by out test server also. and we can get sufficient downtown for maintenance activity.

If the link Sudhakar does not work, try this one:

It's to the same article and it should explain it pretty well.
If the 70GB free is with disk-drive protection enabled - you're a lot safer.

The kb is pretty nice though hadn't seen that before, it's the public advisories/etc.
