Hi Team

Please confirm if we can add 5240 2U Storage shelf to an existing setup using Netbackup appliance 5230 and a 5230 storage shelf. If yes, how the SAS cables will be connected.

You should be able to do this - check the attachment to https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000116846

I believe there are specific part numbers if ordering a 2U 49 TB Expansion Shelf for N5230 which include SAS2 to SAS3 cables. Best to check with your local Veritas sales team.

Thanks Andrew for the quick response..

Tech note shared by you confirms that it can be done.

Came across below document that explain all possible combinations in detail (Page 113)

Should have been more patient.

So if we add all 49TB shelf to 14 tb 5230 base unit , the overall capacity can be achieved more than specs documented i.e around 200TB. is it correct

Just remember that it is best practice to move MSDP from head unit to shelves. See these docs:
