    Chapter 1. Adding file modules to an existing Storwize V7000 system You can safely add IBM Storwize V7000 file modules to a working Storwize V7000 system to create a Storwize V7000 Unified system. A Storwize V7000 Unified system provides Network Attached Storage (NAS), like a file server, and it provides volumes as it did before by using Fibre Channel (SCSI) and iSCSI block storage protocols.

    Planning Fibre Channel network changes You must understand the reconfiguration process that is necessary when planning Fibre Channel network changes. About this task Prior to implementation, it is important to understand and plan for the Fibre Channel network changes. For each host: v If Fibre Channel ports 1 and 2 on the node canisters of the control enclosure are not currently connected to the Fibre Channel fabric, there is no need for Fibre Channel fabric changes.
