I have a 6 year old SG210 Rev 1 box that has recently been retired. It is still in great condition and fans still relatively noise free so I am considering repurposing it in a less critical role e.g. as a HA unit for another SG210Rev1 thats is still in use at a branch.
Anyway was considering replacing the internal 320GB HDD with an SSD but not sure if this is possible or what the proceedure would be to get unit in an operational state again. There is nothing on the existing HDD we need to keep (i.e. dont care if its factory reset).
May even consider converting it to XG and using it for intrim "migration". e.g. Put XG on this one and replace the SG210 out there as the primary device and then convert the one out there already and set both in HA mode.
My only concerns are the HDD's in these units are 7 years old so probably overdue to fail really. If I can replace for SSD's I should get many more years out of them.
Anyone done this and what would the appropriate steps and where to get any required downloads. Just need some high level guidence as I am very experienced with hardware/firmware upgrades.
