Hi @wolfkiler ,

 

I assume that you are asking about how to check the SAS ports available to add a new disk shelf stack to NetApp ONTAP based storage.

 

If so you can use the command "storage port show"  this will list the SAS ports and those shown as "enabled" and "offline" are available for use.

 

There is some doco here: https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap-cli-9141//storage-port-show.html

 

An Example of an AFFA300 that has one shelf stack connected is as below:

cluster1::> storage port show
Speed
Node               Port Type (Gb/s) State    Status
------------------ ---- ---- ------ -------- ---------------
node1
                   0a   SAS       12 enabled  online
                   0b   SAS        0 enabled  offline
                   0c   SAS        0 enabled  offline
                   0d   SAS       12 enabled  online
node2
                   0a   SAS       12 enabled  online
                   0b   SAS        0 enabled  offline
                   0c   SAS        0 enabled  offline
                   0d   SAS       12 enabled  online
