Configuring the switches

You need to configure the switches in a fabric-attached MetroCluster configuration.

  1. To configure your Brocade or Cisco switches, see the Fabric-attached MetroCluster Systems Brocade Switch Configuration Guide or Fabric-attached MetroCluster Systems Cisco Switch Configuration Guide for your switch model at the NetApp Support Site.
    Note: The configuration and firmware requirements for Brocade switches in a MetroCluster environment are different from the requirements for switches used in SAN environments. Always see the Interoperability Matrix at support.netapp.com/matrix, when installing and configuring your MetroCluster switches. For information about ISL encryption on a Brocade switch, see the Fabric-attached MetroCluster Systems Brocade Switch Configuration Guide at the NetApp Support Site.
Proceed to configure Node A.
