Config Advisor 5

Does Config Advisor 5 still have the physical cabling check for Storage included? If so, where is it located in GUI. If not, is the only option to use an older version. Thanks for responses.

Yes, it still checks hardware and cabling.

It is located under the Device details - Stack diagram.


See attached screenshot of a 9.2 dual controller Fas.
