Adding Storage

Whenever adding disk array enclosures, make sure to read the documentation and instructions completely. Daisy chaining DAEs can be very fascinating task but it also required proper planning for the harnessing for the cables. First count the required numbers of cables and verify the connectors (SFP, HSSDC, HSSDC2 etc). Draw the diagram on a piece of paper to understand the DAEs’ locations and then measure the cable length for expansion.
