How to expand DataPower raid disk in the cluster environment

There is no description how to expand DataPower raid disk in the CLUSTER environment in API Connect knowledge center.

There is just for stand-alone DataPower in the forum topic:

Please update this disk-expand description for cluster environment in the DataPower or API Connect knowledge center.

The following is the example with L3 comment

1. Increase raid disk in slave environment

In this part I would recommend to disable QES and even Poweroff the DP before extending the size of raid via hypervisor client,

to avoid the possible risk of dynamically changing the size of raid while DP is running.

2. Switch the Slave DataPower to QES Master

Before issuing the quota-enforcement-switch-master command, please make sure the target slave finished the replication from the current master.

I would recommend to have 10 minutes or longer (it depends on the size of redis db, especially the size is over 1GB) time buffer since the slave was joined, to make sure the slave is ready to be switched to become the new master.

3. Switch the Slave DataPower to QES Master again

Same as above.
