FAS3220 Dual Controller Cabling help (DS4243 and DS2246 shelves) - Multi Stack

Currently Being Moderated

Looking for some assistance here. Historicaly i've never setup a filer from scratch. We've always used NetApp's services to deploy the hardware. Now I find myself with a filer, a butt load of cables, and a PDF that has me cross-eyed.


So this is what I have:


FAS3220, dual controllers.

5x DS4243 600GB SAS 15K drives

2x DS2246 600GB SAS 10K drives


I've glanced through the ECMM1280392 cabling guide and can't seem to find my configuration. I was advised to go with page 34 for the cabling, but wanted a second opinion. Each controller only has 2 SAS HBA's. So im not sure how page 34 ties into that config. Page 35 has what I think is more like the current config we run, but requires a quad port HBA on each controller, which we dont have, but can get if needed.


From what I understand, we are going to be running 2 stacks since we are using mixed shelves. Our goal here is 70TBs usuable (100TB RAW).


Attached are two picctures, one as the rack stands, and the second, is the controllers themselves so you see how many HBAs we have.


Any assitance is appreciated.
