Installation and
Drawer
Operation
Installing The PS M4110
• The PS M4110 installs in the top slots using the rail guides on the
top.
• The PS M4110 installs in the bottom slots using the slot guides on
the bottom.
• Slide the array into the M1000e available slots.
• Seat the array by sliding the handle firmly in place
PS M4110 Drawer
• To open the array inner drawer:
– Push the array's front panel and release it quickly to unlatch the array’s
inner drawer.
• When the drawer is unlatched will be a “Caution” label visible
PS M4110 Drawer
• When the PS-M4110 is out of the M1000 enclosure, the array's
drawer cannot be opened unless its safety locking mechanism
is released.

Multiple M1000e Chassis Switch IOM’s
m1000e
Stacked IOMs
LAG
m1000e
• For multiple chassis
• Stacking should be done in two rings,
a left side ring and a right side ring
• LAGs should be connected between
the rings so that each port on the
storage devices and can
communicate to any other port on
the storage devices.
• DCB Support Requires:
• DCB external switch (B8000)
• IOM: Navasota only
• Intel or Brocade CNA Mezz
