Cabling storage

You must cable the shelf-to-shelf connections, and then cable both controllers to the drive shelves.

About this task

The cables are inserted into the drive shelf with the pull-tabs facing down, while the other end of the cable is inserted into the controllers with the pull-tabs up.


  1. Use the following animation to cable your drive shelves to your controllers.
    Note: The example uses DS224C. Cabling is similar with other supported drive shelves.

    If you have more than one drive shelf stack, see the Installation and Cabling Guide for your drive shelf type.
