Description (partial)

Cisco MDS 9700 Series Hardware Installation Guide
Installing the Cisco MDS 9700 Series Switches

The following two contradictory statements are made:

Note If there are only three fabric modules to install, install them in fabric slots 2, 4, and 6, and be sure that there are blank filler plates installed in the open slots.


Note We recommend that you follow this guidelines while installing the cross bar fabric module.

Depending on the number of the crossbar fabric modules in the chassis configuration, the following slot number should be assigned on the Cisco MDS 9700 Series switch :

Number of Crossbar Fabric Modules   	Slots Number
------------------------------------------------        ------------------------------
2                                                      1 and 2
3                                                      1, 3, and 5
4                                                      1, 2, 3, and 5
5                                                      1, 2, 3, 4, and 5
6                                                      1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6

The above both can't be correct...
