Is it a requirement for a certified partner physically install and power on the HUS 130 we are considering purchasing? We have installed other SAN's with no issues and are familiar with the HDS but are being told it must be installed by a certified 3rd party. This is about 2k of added cost and we are being told this is a requirement if we want support on this device from the manufacturer and or partner. I have never heard of such a thing and was hoping someone could shed some light on this subject.
Thanks in advance!
