Migrating an External RAID Enclosure in NAS Storage Mode

Follow these steps to move a RAID enclosure containing a storage pool or static volume from a QNAP NAS to a different QNAP NAS (which we will call the target NAS).

  1. Go to Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Disks/VJBOD.
  2. Select an enclosure.
  3. Select Action > Safely Detach.

    The Safely Detaching Enclosure window opens.

  4. Click Apply.

    Do not disconnect or power off the RAID enclosure until the enclosure has been detached.

    A confirmation message appears.

  5. Disconnect the RAID enclosure from the NAS.
  6. Connect the RAID enclosure to the target QNAP NAS.
  7. On the target NAS, go to Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Disks/VJBOD.
  8. Click Recover, and then select Attach and Recover Storage Pool.

    A confirmation message appears.

  9. Click OK.

    QTS scans the RAID enclosure for storage pools and static volumes, and then displays them on the Recover Wizard window.

  10. Click Apply.

QTS makes all storage pools, volumes, and LUNs on the RAID enclosure available on the target NAS at Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Storage/Snapshots.
