Adding a DS4246 to FAS2240-4

I currently have a FAS2240-4 that is live and nearly full. I am looking to add a DS4246 for extra storage space.  The instructions at this link:  https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1149276

show an example with three DS424x systems added on.  I am just looking to add one.  Looking at the logic for using 3, I am thinking:

Note the two black X's on my diagram.  I do not think I need to connect anything to those two Ethernet ports.  Does this look correct?

    Hi Andrew,

     

    You need to ensure all ACP Ethernet ports are daisy chained from the ACP port on controller 1, the ACP ports on both IOM modules on your new shelf, and then back to the ACP port on controller 2. For a HA-Pair configuration all SAS ports on disk shelves should be used.

     

    Here are the cabled connections you need:

     

    SAS

    Controller 1 0a --> Shelf 1 IOM A SAS Square

    Controller 1 0b --> Shelf 1 IOM B SAS Circle

    Controller 2 0b --> Shelf 1 IOM A SAS Circle

    Controller 2 0a --> Shelf 1 IOM B SAS Square

     

    ACP

    Controller 1 0P --> Shelf 1 IOM A ACP Square

    Shelf 1 IOM A ACP Circle --> Shelf 1 IOM B ACP Square

    Shelf 1 IOM B ACP Circle --> Controller 2 0P

     

    Note 0P ports on the controllers refer to the ACP port indicated with a Lock Spanner Port.
