• The last enclosure in a chain must not have cables in port 2 of canister 1 and port 2 of canister 2.
• Ensure that cables are installed in an orderly way to reduce the risk of cable damage when replaceable
units are removed or inserted.
Figure 22. Connecting the SAS cables
Connecting Ethernet cables to node canisters
On Lenovo Storage V7000 systems, the control enclosure has several Ethernet ports present or optionally
present on the rear of each node canister. Ports 1 and 2 provide access to system management facilities.
Ports 1, 2 and 3 on the rear of each canister can also provide iSCSI connectivity.
To install the Ethernet cables, complete the following steps.
Connect Ethernet port 1 of each node canister in the system to the IP network that will provide
connection to the system management interfaces, as shown in Figure 23 "Connecting the Ethernet
cables" on page 25.This port can also be used for iSCSI connectivity to the system by hosts on the
network. Where more than one control enclosure is present in the system, ensure port 1 of every
node canister is connected to the same network to provide access if the configuration node fails.
