Readying the cluster for production

Before you put your cluster into production, you should complete some additional configuration steps.

Steps

  1. Assign passwords for cluster interconnect switches (if applicable).
  2. Configure EMS.
  3. Configure the DNS network.
  4. Protect the root volumes.
  5. Create production volumes and LUNs.
  6. Optionally join additional AFF or FAS nodes to the cluster.
    You can add FAS nodes to an existing AFF cluster, but you cannot merge clusters.
