I want to connect DSMK2-ESH2 disk shelf with 14 disks in it to Cisco MDS as JBOD. There are two SFP ports on back on module A & B. It indicates In and Out. Could you pls explain me how to connect this disk shelf and to which port the cable should connect. My link between MDS and Disk shelf is up as TL. I dont see disk in flogi database and also my QLOGIC Sansurfer does not see the disks as well.
Ben Rockwood posted a nice example some time ago at http://www.cuddletech.com/articles/netapp/netapp-evms.html You can build a Linux Server to use the shelves...but no example I can think of on how to configure a shelf stack direct to a switch... the switch doesn't have any capability of managing the shelf like ONTAP or Linux.
