How to read a worksheet to cable controller-to-stack connections for multipathed connectivity

You can use this example to guide you through how to read and apply a completed worksheet to cable controller-to-stack connections for disk shelves with IOM12 modules for multipathed connectivity.

Before you begin

Your HA pair or single-controller configuration cannot be an AFF A200, AFF A220, FAS2600 series or FAS2700 system. These systems use a unique worksheet. See the Controller-to-stack cabling worksheets and cabling examples for common AFF A200, AFF A220, FAS2600 series and FAS2700 configurations section.

About this task

The port pairs are cabled using every other port pair in the worksheet: 1a/2b and 1c/2d....The port pairs being skipped to use every other one in the list: 1a/2b and 1c/2d.





Procedure

  1. Cable port pair 1a/2b on each controller to stack 1:
    1. Cable controller 1 port 1a to stack 1, first shelf IOM A port 1.
    2. Cable controller 2 port 1a to stack 1, first shelf IOM B port 1.
    3. Cable controller 1 port 2b to stack 1, last shelf IOM B port 3.
    4. Cable controller 2 port 2b to stack 1, last shelf IOM A port 3.
  2. Cable port pair 1c/2d on each controller to stack 2:
    1. Cable controller 1 port 1c to stack 2, first shelf IOM A port 1.
    2. Cable controller 2 port 1c to stack 2, first shelf IOM B port 1.
    3. Cable controller 1 port 2d to stack 2, last shelf IOM B port 3.
    4. Cable controller 2 port 2d to stack 2, last shelf IOM A port 3.
