If the HCP G11 system includes Fibre Channel switches, you need to rack the switches. If the HCP system does not use Fibre Channel switches, the HCP G11 Nodes are directly connected to the storage arrays.

HCP supports Brocade 6510 and Cisco MDS 9148s switches for Fibre Channel connections. Two Fibre Channel switches of the same model need to be installed in each rack for redundancy.

This section describes how to rack Fibre Channel switches and connect them to the PDUs.

Note: When racking and mounting switches, this manual assumes you are using M5 caged nuts and screws. If you intend to use a different type of caged nut or screw, provide your own variant for the procedure.
