Cabling FAS3140 Cluster with 3 FC disk shelves.

Is there a document for best practise on how to cable FAS3140(quad ports) cluster with 3 FC disk shelves. 

Re: Cabling FAS3140 Cluster with 3 FC disk shelves.

There are some guidelines in general for connecting new loops:

  • f you have an available dual-port and an available quad-port  adapter, the dual-port adapter should be used first.
  • If you only have an available quad-port adapter and you are  hot-adding a single loop of disk shelves, then Ports A and B are defined  as a port pair and Ports C and D are defined as a port pair. For the  purposes of incorporating redundancy, Module A connects to Port A or  Port B and Module B connects to Port C or Port D.
