Controller-to-stack cabling worksheets and cabling examples for common AFF A200, AFF A220, FAS2600 series and FAS2700 configurations - shelves with IOM12 modules

Contributors netapp-martyh

You can use the completed controller-to-stack cabling worksheets and cabling examples to cable common AFF A200, AFF A220, FAS2600 series and FAS2700 configurations.

  • If needed, you can refer to SAS cabling rules for information about supported configurations, shelf-to-shelf connectivity, and controller-to-shelf connectivity (including AFF A200, AFF A220, FAS2600 series and FAS2700 port 0b same domain connectivity).

  • Cabling examples show controller-to-stack cables as solid or dashed to distinguish controller 0b port connections from controller 0a port connections.

  • Cabling examples show controller-to-stack connections and shelf-to-shelf connections in two different colors to distinguish connectivity through IOM A (domain A) and IOM B (domain B).

AFF A200, AFF A220, FAS2600 series and FAS2700 multipath HA configuration with one multi-shelf stack

The following worksheet and cabling example uses port pair 0a/0b:

FAS2600 series multipath configuration with one multi-shelf stack

The following worksheets and cabling examples use port pair 0a/0b.

In this example, the controller is installed in slot A of the chassis. When a controller is located in slot A of the chassis, its internal storage port (0b) is in domain A (IOM A); therefore, port 0b must connect to domain A (IOM A) in the stack.

In this example, the controller is installed in slot B of the chassis. When a controller is located in slot B of the chassis, its internal storage port (0b) is in domain B (IOM B); therefore, port 0b must connect to domain B (IOM B) in the stack.
