Usually, you can use the default autoassignment policy, which is equivalent to the stack policy for most systems, and to the bay policy for entry level systems (FAS2xxx). However, for some configurations, you might need to change the autoassignment policy.
Use the appropriate autoassignment, based on your configuration:
|If you are using...||Then use the autoassignment policy value of...|
|Stand-alone entry level system||stack|
|Entry level systems in an HA configuration with a single, shared shelf||bay|
|Entry level systems in an HA configuration with one stack of two or more shelves||shelf|
|MetroCluster configurations with one stack per node, two or more shelves||shelf|
|All other configurations||stack|
