Power supplies and disk drives are hot-swappable. (Replace the power supply within two minutes of removal to minimize disruption to the disk shelfs airflow.) IOMs are not hot-swappable in single-controller single-path configurations. For component replacement instructions, including shelf replacement, LED behavior, and SES error messages, see the DS4243 Installation and Service Guide.

More about the DS4243 disk shelf


See the DS4243 Installation and Service Guide on the NetApp Support site at now.netapp.com for a comparison between the SAS and FC/AT disk shelves and for more information about the DS4243 disk shelf.

Hot-adding disk shelves


You can hot-add a disk shelf in the following cases: Any supported storage system with an existing SAS HBA Any existing stack of DS4243 disk shelves For hot-adding instructions, see the DS4243 Installation and Service Guide.

Alternate Control Path (ACP) capability


For maximum storage availability and stability, storage systems with DS4243 disk shelves have the option to use the ACP capability. ACP is a protocol that enables Data ONTAP to manage and control the DS4243 disk shelf storage subsystem. It uses a separate network from the data path so it can independently perform recovery whenever certain interruptions are detected in the data path. To use the ACP capability, you must cable the ACP ports on the disk shelves and connect the disk shelves to the dedicated network interface on each storage system controller. At system setup, you enable ACP functionality by configuring ACP parameters. If your storage system does not have a dedicated onboard network interface for ACP, you assign one at system setup. Standard ACP cabling rules apply to all storage systems and can be found in the DS4243 Installation and Service Guide. ACP functionality, configuration, and enabling information can be found in the Data ONTAP Storage Management Guide. Note: If at initial storage system setup you choose not to use the ACP capability, you can use it later by cabling the ACP connections and enabling ACP by running setup again.

DS4243 Disk Shelf Installation and Setup


Minimum software requirements
Data ONTAP 7.x releases: Data ONTAP 7.3.3P2 or later. Data ONTAP 8.x releases: Data ONTAP 8.0P1 or later.

Documentation
For more disk shelf and safety information, see the DS4243 Installation and Service Guide. For platform and disk drive support, see the System Configuration Guide. All documentation can be found on the NetApp Support site at now.netapp.com.

1 1 1 Ground yourself

Ground yourself to the storage system chassis using the grounding leash that came with your storage system. Note: You do not need to ground DS4243 disk shelves; grounding is done through the power cords.

Installing the disk shelf in a rack

If the DS4243 disk shelf did not come in a system cabinet, you must install it in an equipment rack using the four-post rail kit or the two-post telco tray kit that came with your disk shelf. See the rack installation flyer that came with the rack kit for detailed instructions.

CAUTION
Note: If you are installing the DS4243 disk shelf in a two-post mid-mount installation, you must use the mid-mount telco kit, which includes brackets, in addition to the two-post telco tray kit.

Note: Disk shelves with 15k SAS disk drives require the use of four power outlets. Disk shelves with 7.2k SATA disk drives require the use of two power outlets.

110 lbs (49.9 kg) To reduce the weight of the disk shelf, remove the power supplies and IOMs before lifting.

Cable the system

If you are using HBAs, they must already be installed in the storage system. 1. Cable controllers. See the Installation and Setup Instructions that came with your storage system for how to cable the controllers. 2. Cable disk shelves. Following are steps to cable two common configurations. For SAS and ACP rules, and more cabling configurations, see the Universal SAS and ACP Cabling Guide.

Boot the system and proceed with setup

- See the Installation and Setup Instructions that came with your storage system for booting your storage system and for system setup. - To take advantage of the ACP capability, you can enable it at setup or later. See the Data ONTAP Software Setup Guide for the setup worksheet and other setup information.
