Change device from 5C to 5D3

Hi there.

I am planning to change my Drobo 5C to a Drobo 5D3.
How do I have to do this?

Is it possible to shut down the old Drobo 5C, remove all drives, insert all drives to the new 5D3 and start the 5D3?

Or is this not going to work?


Hello there!

Yes, that is essentially how you would do it. 5C to 5D3 is an officially supported migration path:

Just make sure to update your firmware on the 5D3 before you start.

Good luck!
