  • In the Hot-adding disk shelves with IOM12 modules procedure, added an About this task section, that provides a link to the document for hot-adding an IOM12 shelf to a stack of IOM6 shelves (mixing a stack).

    The document for mixing a stack specifies the requirements your system must meet, including supported ONTAP versions.

    Hot-adding IOM12 shelves to a stack of IOM6 shelves

  • In the Considerations for hot-adding disk shelves with IOM12 modules section, updated the second bullet, which states shelves with IOM12 modules must be in their own unique stack, to clarify that the hot-add procedure in this document does not address mixing a stack.

  • In the Controller-to-stack cabling worksheet template for multipathed connectivity section, step 4 supporting text for the second example, corrected the port pair used to connect to a fourth stack. The correct port pair is 2c/1b.
  • In the Changing the disk shelf ID procedure, added information clarifying what state disk drives need to be in to nondisruptively change a shelf ID.

August 2017
  • Added bullet items in the Controller-to-stack connection rules section under Port pair connection rules (for non FAS2600 series configurations:
    • You must include all SAS ports in your HA pair or single-controller configuration when defining port pairs.
    • When you should use (cable) port pairs in the order in which you identified (listed) them and when you should skip port pairs.
  • Updated the Controller-to-stack cabling worksheets and cabling examples for common multipath HA configurations section to include examples for skipping port pairs.
  • Updated the Controller-to-stack cabling worksheet template for multipathed connectivity section to include an example for skipping port pairs.
  • Updated the How to read a worksheet to cable controller-to-stack connections for multipathed connectivity section to include an example for skipping port pairs.
  • Added a bullet item in the Considerations for hot-adding disk shelves with IOM12 modules stating that nondisruptive stack consolidation is not supported.
  • Updated the Controller-to-stack connection rules section to more concisely group port connection rules for non FAS2600 series configurations and FAS2600 series configurations.
  • Removed the SAS disk shelf safety information section.

    All safety information can be found in the Safety Information and Regulatory Notices document on the NetApp Support Site.

  • Updated content as needed to support the DS460C disk shelf:
    • Procedure for Installing and cabling disk shelves with IOM12 modules for a new system installation
    • Procedure for Hot-adding disk shelves with IOM12 modules
    • Title of this document: Installation and Cabling Guide for DS460C, DS224C, and DS212C
    Note: Although cabling illustrations show disk shelves with the IOM12 modules arranged side-by-side as in a DS224C or DS212C disk shelf, the illustrations can be applied to configurations with DS460C disk shelves.
  • Updated the Considerations for installing and cabling disk shelves with IOM12 modules for a new system installation section to explain that disk shelves are shipped with shelf IDs preset to 00, the exception to this rule, and how to identify boxes containing disk shelves with the root aggregates.
  • Updated the Cabling disk shelves with IOM12 modules for a new system installation section to include instructions for automatically assigning shelf IDs in an HA pair or single-controller configuration.
  • Updated the Cabling disk shelves with IOM12 modules for a new system installation, Installing a disk shelf with IOM12 modules for a hot-add, and Changing the disk shelf ID sections to state a valid shelf ID is 00-99 (00 is not reserved for the internal disk shelf of a FAS2600 series configuration).
  • Added the new Controller-to-stack cabling worksheet template for quad-pathed connectivity section.
  • Added the new How to read a worksheet to cable controller-to-stack connections for quad-pathed connectivity section.
  • Updated the Controller-to-stack cabling worksheet template for multipathed connectivity title and section to broaden the context to include cabling for an entire HA pair or single-controller configuration, or individual stacks.
  • Updated the How to read a worksheet to cable controller-to-stack connections for multipathed connectivity title and section to broaden the context to include cabling for an entire HA pair or single-controller configuration, or individual stacks. And to correct an erroneous port used in step 2c and step 2d.
  • Updated the Requirements for hot-adding disk shelves with IOM12 modules section to specify that only IOM12 connections to 6Gb SAS HBAs are negotiated down to 6Gbs.

    IOM12 connections to 12Gb SAS HBAs operate at 12Gbs and IOM12 connections to 6Gb SAS HBAs operate at 6Gbs.
