mixed and sas shelves



I've got three shelves: 2 - mixed (DS2246: 4 ssd + 20 sas), 1 - sas (DS2246: 24 sas disks).


Should I divide my shelves into different stacks?

stack 1: 2 mixed shelves

satck 2: 1 sas shelf


What document describes the stacking rules?





Re: mixed and sas shelves


The solution you suggested looks good for me. Putting shelves into different stacks actually avoids single point of failure.

Mixing of SSD and SAS disks in the same shelf seems to be supported from ONTAP 8.0.1 onwards, but in ONTAP 8.1.1 , a bug is fixed w.r.t this. Details here: http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=542094
