Can anyone outline the procedure for adding SSDs to a B1200i to get the SSD tiering feature going? A client has a B1200i with 7 4TB HDs in it now (in bays 0-6). They want to get three SAS SSDs for tiering, and documentation says those need to go in bays 0, 1, & 2). To add those do i:
- Shut down the Drobo, move the drives in 0, 1, & 2 over to 7, 8, & 9
or 2) move the drive in 0 to 7, wait for it to catch up, then 1 to 8, etc.
Then insert the SSDs in 0, 1, & 2?
Or is there some other method? I can’t find any documentation on this, and Drobo support won’t answer my questions without an in warranty device.
