Recently I upgraded the XtremIO X-Brick in the RoundTower DemoLab to a later version. Dell-EMC requires you to open a ticket and schedule time for their support staff to do the upgrade for you. These are the steps required.
Add SSD Drives to XtremIO X-Brick
Recently I added additional SSDs to a Starter XtremIO X-Brick in the RoundTower DemoLab that was partially populated with drives. There are a series of steps you need to execute to bring the added storage online.
Repurposing used XtremIO X-Brick
Recently we consolidated our labs at RoundTower and I re-purposed an XtremIO X-Brick into the Cincinnati Demonstration Lab. I figured it was going to be very easy, execute the “reset to factory defaults” command and off I go. You will not be surprised to hear, it was a little more complicated than that.
This post explains how to recover/re-purpose the X-Brick to a point where it is ready to provide storage services.
