Before adding an enclosure for management

Before you add an enclosure for management, consider the following:

  • Do you want a single or multiple logical interconnects for all interconnects in the enclosure?

  • Do you want a new or existing enclosure group ?

    • An existing enclosure group applies the configurations from that group to your new enclosure. The interconnects in the enclosure are configured automatically according to the logical interconnect groups associated with the enclosure group.

      For a multi-logical interconnect configuration, select the enclosure group you created that contains the multiple logical interconnect groups.

    • A new enclosure group creates a configuration based on the enclosure you are adding. This automatically creates a single logical interconnect for all interconnects in the enclosure.

  • If you are creating a new enclosure group, enter a unique name for the group. Do you want a new or existing logical interconnect group?

    • An existing logical interconnect group applies the configurations from that group to the interconnects.

    • A new logical interconnect group creates a configuration based on the interconnects found in the enclosure.
