Platform port assignments for NVIDIA supported SN2100 IP switches

Contributors netapp-folivia

The port usage in a MetroCluster IP configuration depends on the switch model and platform type.

Supported configurations

The following platforms are currently supported:

  • FAS500f / AFF A250

  • FAS8300 / AFF A400

  • FAS8700

  • FAS9000 / AFF A700

  • AFF A800

The following platforms and configurations are not currently supported:

  • MetroCluster FC-to-IP Transition

  • An eight-node MetroCluster configuration

Review these considerations before using the configuration tables

If you cable multiple MetroCluster configurations then follow the respective table. For example:

  • If you cable two four-node MetroCluster configurations of type AFF A700, then connect the first MetroCluster shown as 'MetroCluster 1', and the second MetroCluster shown as 'MetroCluster 2' in the AFF A700 table.

Note Ports 13 and 14 can be used in native speed mode supporting 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps, or in breakout mode to support 4 × 25 Gbps or 4 × 10 Gbps. If they use native speed mode they are represented as port 13 and 14. If they use breakout mode, either 4 × 25 Gbps or 4 × 10 Gbps, then they are represented as 13s0-3 and 14s0-3.

The following sections describe the physical cabling outline. You can also refer to the RcfFileGenerator for detailed cabling information.
