I have a NetApp FAS 2520 with a fully populated external DS 4246 shelf. I'm setting it up and need to assign the disks to one of the 2/or both of the HA controllers.
I previously had a consultant help me setup a similar setup but only with a FAS 2220 at a different site and he assigned half the disks to one controller and the other half to the other. But in reading online, I saw a comment that it's best practice to assign them all to one controller.
This setup I'm working on will eventually host some Hyper-V VMs and VHDXs as well as share user files using CIFS. It will also be used for backing up those user files using SnapProtect and then replicate those backups to the FAS 2220 at the other site as well as receive replication and store backups from the other site.
Any thoughts or input?
