2.5.5 Cluster considerations
This node can be integrated into a Cluster 1600 with the following options:
򐂰 A switchless cluster with the node
򐂰 A cluster with a single or a double plane SP Switch2, where the node is off the
switch
򐂰 A cluster with a single plane SP Switch, where the node is on the switch using
one SP Switch MX Attachment Adapter (FC 4023) in the MX slot
򐂰 A cluster with a single plane SP Switch2, where the node is on the switch
using one SP Switch2 MX Attachment Adapter (FC 4026) in the MX slot
