ONTAP Hardware

dual looping



We have a bunch of ds14mk4s esh4 and some ds14mk2 esh2 with sata. Curerntly they are in a single loop. For redunadancy we'd like to dual loop everything. We've got the necesarry hardware installed in the the fas3140 (another quad fc hba). Can I just cable everything in hot and it'll "just work"? Also, many of the esh modules are missing fsps. I have a bag of them but I'm not sure if they were supplied by netapp or not. Can I use any?

Thanks a lot



Yes, you can add second loop online. As for SFP support – you better open case with NetApp and ask whether these SFPs are qualified.
