Is it possible use FAS3040HA replace FAS3160HA controllers?

    If you have the same ammount of ports in your FAS3040, yes it is possible.

      Amount of ports does not really the main criterion. What matters, is



      -          Both filers run compatible Data ONTAP versions, so one can access disks taken from another


      -          Number of disks and shelves and total amount of storage do not exceed platform limit, taken in account of course how many shelves you can connect to a single loop and how many loops you can build (here is where number of ports starts to matter).


      If all this is checked, it is trivial enough head swap.
