Migrate from a two-node switchless cluster to a cluster with Cisco Nexus 3232C cluster switches
You must be aware of certain configuration information, port connections, and cabling requirements when you migrate a two-node switchless cluster to a cluster with Cisco Nexus 3232C cluster switches.
The Cisco Ethernet Switches page has information about the ONTAP and NX-OS versions supported in this procedure.
You must have the following before you begin the migration process:
Available ports for node connections
The cluster switches use the Inter-Switch Link (ISL) ports e1/31-32. -
Appropriate cables for cluster connections:
The nodes with 10 GbE cluster connections require QSFP optical modules with breakout fiber cables or QSFP to SFP+ copper breakout cables.
The nodes with 40/100 GbE cluster connections require supportedQSFP/ QSFP28 optical modules with fiber cables or QSFP/QSFP28 copper direct-attach cables.
The cluster switches require the appropriate ISL cabling: 2x QSFP28 fiber or copper direct-attach cables.
See the Hardware Universe for further information on cabling systems with Nexus 3232C switches.
