Re: Hot Add Fabric Stretched Mtero Cluster - alter cabling

Netapp support advice.

Power off the atto bridge. Recabled and power the bridge back on to rescan.

As long as the A path is not broken during the work then the filer will use this path for communication.

The filer will cope with the new disk names once they are presented back from the atto.

I'll update what happens in the real world post recabling.

Ok, Process followed was this.

 

Send an Autosupport prior to rewire

Unwire new shelves

ReWire new shelves

Simples :-)

 

I appreciate the help and caution I got on this from the communities and will award as such.
