Expanding a four-node MetroCluster FC configuration to an eight-node configuration

Expanding a four-node MetroCluster FC configuration to an eight-node MetroCluster FC configuration involves adding two controllers to each cluster to form a second HA pair at each MetroCluster site, and then running the MetroCluster FC configuration operation.

Before you begin

About this task

Before performing this procedure, the MetroCluster FC configuration consists of four nodes, with one HA pair at each site:



At the conclusion of this procedure, the MetroCluster FC configuration consists of two HA pairs at each site:

Both sites must be expanded equally. A MetroCluster FC configuration cannot consist of an uneven number of nodes.
