Connecting DE212C to E5760 + DE460C

We have a newly installed E5760 controller with disk enclosure DE460C. Customer advised that they have another spare new DE212C and wants us to connect to theirE5760 controller. We found a NetApp document which lists that E5700 controller can be connected to DE224C and DE460C only, but in HW universe we found that DE212C is listed as compatible with E5760. Also, cannot find connectivity for DE212C to E5700, we can only see connection diagrams for E5700 with DE460C. Can someone please confirm if this intermix of shelves is possible with E5760 controller? (DE212C + DE460C)

 

Thanks and best regards.

You may reach out to your assigned NetApp Account Manager for this query. But looks like it is not supported as per the following TR.

 

Page-7: E5700 controllers are not offered in the 12-drive DE212C shelf. For custom environments, E5700 arrays can be configured in mixed-shelf (DE224C and DE460C) architectures under the same 24-drive or 60-drive controller-drive shelf.
