Some of the disks are single path attached.

Hi all,


After running config advisor I am seeing 8 single path disks found on channel 1c,0c shelf 4.


       Type     Name      Disk Count    Make/Model   Notes

       Shelf     1c:4 | 0c:4       14                  ESH4       Shelf partial path


Storage show output:


0c.64     B                     4    0  
0c.65     B                     4    1  
0c.66     B                     4    2  
0c.67     B                     4    3  
0c.68     B                     4    4  
0c.69     B                     4    5  
0c.70     B    1c.70      A     4    6  
0c.71     B                     4    7  
0c.72     B    1c.72      A     4    8  
1c.73     A    0c.73      B     4    9  
0c.74     B                     4   10  


I have seen a cabling issue on shelf 6 however, the cables arenot multipath attached. So my question is that is it possible just to swap the cables without any downtime?

Hi Leo,


Did you logged case to netapp to check the physical connectivity.

meanwhile, is it FAS series or V-series box.

My view is that, we cannot swap without the downtime.
