Was asked to cover a colleague on a “simple” storage upgrade on an EMC Clariion AX4-5 array. Add 8 disks, present to a windows host, enable data transfer.

Except the operating code (Flare) on the array was relatively old 505 level. And the disks were relatively new 2TB SATA units. Navisphere Manager showed the drives as “unknown”.
