Expanding a system

You can expand a system that VxFlex Manager deployed with additional VxFlex nodes.

The following high-level tasks, which are required for expansion, assume that VxFlex Manager is installed and configured out of the factory:
  1. Discover and configure the VxFlex node for alerting.
  2. Ensure the availability of network IP addresses.
  3. Add VxFlex nodes to a service.
NOTE: If your system did not have VxFlex Manager installed and configured out of the factory, and you are expanding a service that was initially deployed outside of VxFlex Manager, you must complete the following steps:
  1. Discover and configure the VxFlex node for alerting.
  2. Add a network to a service deployed outside of VxFlex Manager.
  3. Ensure the availability of network IP addresses.
  4. Add VxFlex nodes to a service.
