Max number of shelves in a stack

Re: Max number of shelves in a stack

It is a little cryptic, but you need to go to http://hwu.netapp.com/Controller/Index and select your version of ONTAP and the controller model. After you click the Show Results button there will be a link labelled "Compatible Shelves/Drives" which will contain all the information you need.

As a general rule it is 10 shelves per stack, but there are limitations when using the low end controllers and/or SSD.
