X5712A-R6 / 111-00569 / 111-00485 / 111-00128 NetApp 3Gbps SAS Controller Module for DS4243 Details
In NetApp FAS series systems, an Input/Output Module (IOM) is a component that provides the intelligence for drive shelf operations and includes SAS ports for connecting the drive shelf to the controller shelf. In previous controller models, the IOM was referred to as an environmental service module (ESM). The X5712A-R6 module provides 2x 3Gbps SAS ports for connecting the drive shelf to the controller shelf, as well as 2x GbE Alternate Control Path (ACP) ports.
If an IOM fails, it should always be replaced as soon as possible. The specific details of your system configuration will determine whether you must run a version of Data ONTAP containing certain bug fixes before you hot-swap or replace an IOM, and whether you can perform a nondisruptive IOM hot-swap or a disruptive IOM replacement.
