installing the ps m4110
Installing The PS M4110
  • The PS M4110 installs in the top slots using the rail guides on the top.
  • The PS M4110 installs in the bottom slots using the slot guides on the bottom.
  • Slide the array into the M1000e available slots.
  • Seat the array by sliding the handle firmly in place
ps m4110 drawer
PS M4110 Drawer
  • To open the array inner drawer:
    • Push the array's front panel and release it quicklyto unlatch the array’s inner drawer.
  • When the drawer is unlatched will be a “Caution” label visible

Stacked IOMs

  • For multiple chassis
    • Stacking should be done in two rings, a left side ring and a right side ring
    • LAGs should be connected between the rings so that each port on the storage devices and can communicate to any other port on the storage devices.
  • DCB Support Requires:
    • DCB external switch (B8000)
    • IOM: Navasota only
    • Intel or Brocade CNA Mezz
