Switching Storage from RF3 to RF2 configuration

  • 20 February 2024

A few years ago, there was a topic raised about this issue, but I would like to confirm if there are any current issues.

I am currently using version 5.20 of AOS and it was confirmed that the installation was done with RF3 two years ago.

I would like to change this to RF2. I know that it is not possible to change the FT, but I only want to change the part related to Storage.

It seems that the command ncli ctr edit rf=2 id=container_ID can be used for this purpose.

When making the change, do Nutanix ManagementShare and SelfServiceContainer also need to be changed?

Will there be any impact on the service during the change?

I don’t think you can change container from RF3 to RF2. I think one more suitable option is: Create a new storage container with RF2 and then migrate workloads from RF3 storage container to storage container. But I am not sure if AOS 5.20 supports this or not.
