Hi All,


Hello All,


Need a bit of help, we are planning to convert switch-less cluster (Ontap 9.5P10) to switched cluster, so customer  buy couple of Broadcom 8 Port interconnect switch (BES-53248A1-G1), could anyone please share the commands to setup inter-cluster switch, which will help us to install the switch and configure to NetApp standards.

That part number (SW-BES-53248A1-G1-8P-LIC) is an 8-port activation license for the Broadcom-supported BES-53248 cluster switch. Instructions for adding these licenses are in this KB:


For documentation on how to setup the BES-53248 switch and how to migrate from two-node switchless to switched, see:

Setup: https://docs.netapp.com/platstor/topic/com.netapp.doc.hw-sw-ix8-setup/home.html

Migrating to switched: https://docs.netapp.com/platstor/topic/com.netapp.doc.hw-sw-ix8-migrate-2n/home.html
