Attaching second additional chassis to MSA2012fc

We currently have one additional chassis in which both controllers go to the In on the first chassis. This give the number "2" on the front which is fine but we now wish to add a second chassis.

Should I disconnect a specific connection and do I need to schedule any down time?

Hi there,

Yes you need downtime, it is not supported to hot-add enclosures.

Check here for a nice overview of redundant cabling :
