Will this Redbook be available in EPUB format? Being able to read these documents in an e-book reader app is very useful.

Mr. Rayson, we will convert this to epub format once it is in final form (not draft). That will be about a month from now.

In 2CEC MMD, is not 4T SMP cable required?
4T SMP cable is not listed in 2CEC of figure 2-11.
IBM sent 1T,2T,4T SMP cable with 2CEC MMD.
When I used only 1T, the 2T SMP cable and started MMD, I failed.

Thanks.

You are correct. The image for the SMP cables is from the older c model. The D requires a 2-path cable configuration for the 2 and 3 cec systems. The 4 cec is the same.

I am in the process of collecting the correct diagrams and I will update the image

Hello
Just to mention a mistake in section "2.9.2 triple split backplane" drawing :
color coding is not good in the table : D1 and D4 should be blue , D2 and D5 Green , as it is on drawing itself.
The correct disk grouping statement can be seen in knowledge center:

With Regards.
