PA-5000 SSD replacement

L0 Member

We have 2 PA-5020 working as active/passive. We have dual SSDs configured in RAID and the SSD model on the active and passive device is SSDSA2CW12. We have to replace SSD in active firewall. However the RMA sent is a different model and is of size 240 GB. We went through a document Configuring RAID with Non-matching Models of SSDs for the replacement procedure. However we are not sure if there would be issues if we use 240 GB instead of 120 GB SSD in the active device. And how the partition allocation will take place. Also as the passive device will still run on 120 GB SSD, will there be any issues due to the mismatch between active and passive device SSD capacity.

Check out the following document, there's a section on 'Configuring RAID with 120GB and 240GB HDD'::
