Using the port tables with the RcfFileGenerator tool or multiple MetroCluster configurations

You must understand how to use the information in the port tables to correctly generate your RCF files.

Review these considerations before using the tables:

Cabling temporary eight-node MetroCluster configurations for transition and upgrade procedures

Some procedures require the addition of second four-node DR group to the configuraiton, for a temporary eight-node configuration.

For such configurations, you use the same method as described above. Instead of a second MetroCluster, you are cabling an additional four-node DR group

For example, your configuration includes the following:

For MetroCluster 1, cable the Cisco 3132Q-V switches using the table for the FAS2750 platform and the rows for MetroCluster 1 interfaces.

For MetroCluster 2 (the new DR group), cable the Cisco 3132Q-V switches using the table for the AFF A700 platform and the rows for MetroCluster 2 interfaces.
