Cabling a mirrored HA pair

To cable a mirrored HA pair, you identify the ports you need to use on each node, cable those ports, and then 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 Data ONTAP 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.
