Cabling a standard HA pair

To cable a standard HA pair, you identify the ports you need to use on each node. You then cable the ports and cable the HA interconnect.

This procedure explains how to cable a configuration using DS14mk2 or DS14mk4 disk shelves.

For cabling SAS disk shelves in an HA pair, see the Universal SAS and ACP Cabling Guide.

Note: If you are installing an HA pair between nodes using array LUNs, see the FlexArray Virtualization Installation Requirements and Reference Guide for information about cabling V-Series systems to storage arrays. See the FlexArray Virtualization Implementation Guide for Third-Party Storage for information about configuring storage arrays to work with Data ONTAP.

The sections for cabling the HA interconnect apply to all systems regardless of disk shelf type.
