Smart Storage requires hard drives before configuration
(From Davin Oishi)
Issue/Question: Unit powers up, but can't login to web administration GUI
Resolution: The Cisco Smart Storage products require at least one hard drive to be installed in the system before configuration is allowed
Issue/Question: Why does the Smart Storage require a hard drive to be installed when my previous NSS3000 did not require a hard drive before configuration could be made
Resolution: The architecture for both product families is different. While configuring a device without drives does provide the ability to configure basic settings before deployment. The actual usefulness is still limited to when the device has drives. Smart Storage takes advantage of the drives by placing configuration and applications on the hard drives. If additional drives are installed after initial setup, configuration information is striped across the additional drives as you add them. This allows for better utilization of Smart Storage memory, improves system performance, and allows for higher scalability.
