B200 M2 Hot Swap SSDs -- Rebuild?

Answered Question

Two questions:


1 - Is the 100 GB SSD the largest SSD drive you can put in a B200 M2, even with the latest firmware updates?


2 - If you have a 100 GB SSDs mirrored with the OS instaled, if you want to upgrade the drives, do you have to put the two new drives in and manually rebuild the OS or can you put in one at a time and have it autogrow?


Thanks in advance.

Dustin,


You would need to jump to something pretty recent due to:

For the size, in M3 we moved all the way up to 400GB

As far as M2, I do believe 100gb (for SSD) is the only option:

There was no plan to change this accroding to:
