I want juste to understand what mean FAS system with 2 controller,it mean that I can create a HA with the two controllers,or join them to cluster.


My FAS system have ontap 9.1 as OS.

Bahmed -


Yes they are HA for each other and they are a cluster.

You create the cluster on the first node, then join the second to the cluster.


See the 'Software Setup Guide' and 'High Availability Configuration Guide' books in the ONTAP documentation:
