PAM-II Module slot assignment

Hi All,

We procured FAS3250AE controllers and below three set of PCI-e cards.

DOT = 8.1.3 P3 7-Mode

  1. X2065A-EN-R6-C =>HBA SAS 4-Port Copper 3/6 Gb QSFP PCIe,EN,-C => Priority Slot Assignment= 3,4,5,6,1,2
  2. X1973A-R6-C => Flash Cache 512GB PCIe Module 2  => Priority Slot Assignment= 1,2,3,4,5,6
  3. X1117A-EN-R6-C => NICII 2-Port Bare Cage SFP+ 10GbE PCIe,EN,-C => Priority Slot Assignment= 1,2,3,4,5,6

Which is the best slot to install the PAM-II Modules? either slot-1 & 2 (or) IOXM slots 3,4,5,6?

Regards,

Re: PAM-II Module slot assignment

I need best practice recommendation here. We have scheduled the installation after 10 days.

In which slot sequence we have to install the Flash card, SAS Initiator card and NIC card.
