Implementing a stretch or fabric-attached MetroCluster configuration with array LUNs

Careful planning, a systematic configuration process, and testing is key to a successful implementation of a MetroCluster configuration. There are requirements and configuration and testing procedures that are unique to setting up a MetroCluster configuration to use array LUNs.

If your MetroCluster configuration includes both array LUNs and native disks, complete the setup and testing of one type of storage before starting configuration of the other type of storage.

Note: MetroCluster configurations are supported only with Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode.
