You must ensure that the hardware components required to set up a MetroCluster configuration with array LUNs are properly racked.

About this task

You must perform this task at both the MetroCluster sites.

Steps

    The rack space depends on the platform model of the storage controllers, the switch types, and the number of disk shelf stacks in your configuration.

  2. Properly ground yourself.

  3. Install the storage controllers in the rack or cabinet.

    Note AFF systems are not supported with array LUNs.
  4. Install the FC switches in the rack or cabinet.
