Connect a second WD Sentinel to the same LAN

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if it is possible to add a second WD Sentinel to the same LAN? I can see that in a few years we will have filled our current WD Sentinel to its capacity and we will require a larger system, or add on another WD Sentinel--if that is even possible. We currently have the WD SENTINEL DX4000 16 TB using MS Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials OS.

You can have as many as you want, within reason of your IP address availability. At that point though you might consider other alternatives rather than having half a dozen of these little dudes about ;)

To go a little off topic; you might be better off considering a Data Domain if this is truly a system for storing backups. It's probably EOL. EMC can get very "creative" if you want to get old stuff off the floor and adopt something new... A small DD could be cheaper and give you better results. Just a thought.
