1.1. Problem

1.1.1. #1 The MDS9148 can only accommodate approximately 25 more hosts due to memory constraints.

1.2. Solution1: Upgrade MDS9148 to MDS9396 in place, Add AFF800 to Existing ushoustor10, Use Existing UCS Domains, if required

1.2.1. Pros No new SVMs required No Additional Management of Storage Cluster Netapp Volume Motion Available Dont have to buy new FIs

1.2.2. Cons High Risk Possible Downtime Existing ushoustor10 nodes will require upgrading to Ontap 9.5
