Blades, ASR's and Hot Swapping

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Rambo via, Jul 1, 2005.

  1. Hi, I'm new to System Admin and Blade/SAN servers. I have a new Blade Center
    with 9 Blades and an EonStor SAN RAID Array. The OS's are on the SAN. We
    are using Win 2003 Standard Edition with 1 - 4 Processor Licensing. One of
    the Blades purchased is a single processor and after realizing the error
    there in, we want to upgrade to a dual processor Blade. Since the OS is
    located on the SAN, I thought I could do a 'hot swap' of Blades by re-mapping
    the LUN to the new Blade. My question is, How will Windows react to that?
    Will it be ignorant like on a desktop when you change a piece of hardware and
    it refuses to start? Or will it just ask me to re-activate since the hardware
    configuration is no longer the same? Also, does anyone know how to do an ASR
    with the OS on the SAN? I appreciate the help and my thanks are in advance.
