EMC VNX 5300 has 6 enclosures and adding a seventh one

I have 6 enclosures, 3 on bus 0 and 3 on bus 1. I am adding a 7 one now and was wondering does it matter which bus I connect it to, either bus 0 or bus 1?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not really providing the workloads are reasonably well-balanced across the two back-end buses. If, for example, Bus 0 has a heap of SSDs on it and Bus 1 does not, I'd add the new DAE to Bus 1. If the SSD population is reasonably well balanced, I wouldn't get too concerned.

Incidentally, these are all 15 drive DAEs, yes?
