The following section outlines the steps necessary to add the Isilon H400 nodes into a cluster, set up a functioning SMB share, and configure the SmartConnect feature in OneFS.
The first step in configuring the Isilon array is building the cluster. Once the array is powered on, a serial connection can be made to each node. Connect to the first node and use the cluster creation wizard to build the cluster. Table 14 shows the values that are used in this example. If any additional information is needed on the setup and configuration of the Isilon Array cluster, refer to the Isilon Generation 6 Installation Guide and Isilon OneFS.

The following configurations are made in this section:
The 10gige-1 and 10gige-2 interfaces for user connectivity are configured in the next section with the OneFS GUI.

When the first node has completed successfully, the user is prompted to log in. Verify the node name Cluster-01-x.

When the first node is configured, and the cluster has been created, the other nodes can then be added into the cluster. All nodes can discover the cluster over the back-end network. The assorted options for back-end networking and Isilon are not covered in this document. For more information about the back-end network, refer to Isilon documentation.
