I would like to take the 8 gig drives from a retiring M200 appliance, format, and install them in a M600 appliance in the expansion bays for additional storage. Is there a procedure available to 1. Format the drives on the M200, 2. Install in the M600, and 3. Add them to the existing storage as expanded space.
you can format log drives in maintenance mode. this is sometimes needed to get your logs to work again in Panorama.
but you don't have to do that.
if you just insert the drives from the M200 into the M600 you can just add the drives. it will prompt you to say the drives have already been used. I think you have to add "force" to the end of the normal drive add command.
