SAS & SATA

Good Day "NetAppians"

Hope you all well.

I've got an issue and hoping someone could assist.

In my enviroment: FAS2246 with 2x1TB SATA DS4243 and 1x1.2TB SAS DS2246 .

The SAS shelf is newly installed.

My question:

Can i cable all three shelves into one stack?

The FAS2246 only has two SAS port per controller so two stacks with multipathing is not possible.

Does mixing iOM3 & iOM6 in one stack have any issues on the storage?

Please any guidence will do.

Thanks

Re: SAS & SATA

Hi,

in your case its supported to cable all in one stack. See the storage Subsystem guide for more information. Multipath is only possible to if you use a 2240HA pair.
