Cabling the controllers to each other

Each controller's FC-VI adapters must be cabled directly to its partner.

Procedure

Cable the FC-VI ports.

The above illustration is representative. The specific FC-VI ports vary by controller module.

  • AFF A300 and FAS8200 controller modules can be ordered with one of two options for FC-VI connectivity:
    • Onboard ports 0e and 0f configured in FC-VI mode.
    • Ports 1a and 1b on an FC-VI card in slot 1.
  • AFF A700 and FAS9000 storage systems controller modules use four FC-VI ports each.
