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 a FAS2600 series configuration. FAS2600 series configurations use a unique worksheet; see the "Controller-to-stack cabling worksheets and cabling examples for common FAS2600 series 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.





Steps

  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.
