adding shelves to existing MetroCluster with Brocade 200's

What is the proper way to add additional shelves to an existing MetroCluster with Brocades? This is what I believe I need to do but I would like another opinion if I am doing something wrong

1. Turn on the local shelf. Wait about 1-2 minutes

2. Plug in the local shelf into the brocade switch

3. NetApp filers should see the new drives?

4. Assign the new drives to Pool 0

5. Turn on the remote shelf, wait 1-2 minutes

6. Plug in the remote shelf into the brocade switch

7. NetApp filers should see the new drives on the remove shelf

8. Assign the new drives to Pool 1

9. Assign the new drives to an existing aggregate or create new mirrored aggregate.

I would do it exactly the same way. Are ports on Brocade already configured?

Thanks aborzenkov. Yes, the ports on the Brocade are already configured.
