You can install Option FC ACHK 8Gbps Fibre Channel 4 Port host interface cards in a configured system.
If the option is being installed during the installation of a new control enclosure, refer to the Installing options in the control enclosure topic in the Storwize® V3700 Information Center for instructions.
The option is installed in the node canisters in the control enclosure. The same options must be installed in all canisters in a control enclosure. If you have a dual node canister enclosure, do not start installation until you have two of the FC ACHK 8Gbps Fibre Channel 4 Port Host Interface Card options.
The Fibre Channel 4 Port Host Interface Card contains two SFP transceivers, allowing for the use of 2 ports. You may wish to install option FC 3620: 8Gb FC SW SFP Transceiver Pair at the same time as you install the Fibre Channel 4 Port Host Interface Card.
If you have a dual node canister control enclosure, you can install the option while the system continues to operate using the canister that is not being upgraded. Remove one canister and install the option, then reinstall the canister. After waiting for the host systems multi-pathing drivers to stabilize, remove the other canister and install the option in it.
Alternatively, you might prefer to stop the system before adding the options.
