EVA 8k 2c12d cabinet 17 & 20 Slots 13 & 14

There is a note on the disk enclosure installation instructions that says do not uses these slots 13 & 14 of cabinets 17 and 20. HP installed this machine a few months back and I have not seeb any issues, although we have drives installed in these slots. I am about to add 24 more disks to the system in that disk group. Has anyone seen issues using these slots?

Thanks
Michael

I am a bit puzzled. Last month I've installed a 2C12D, but the system did not have any enclosures numbered 17 + 20. That is only possible using an extension cabinet (or somebody might have swapped the top/bottom terminators ;-)

The suggestion comes from the 120 disk drives per loop limitation and the fact that no hard AL_PA is assigned for these bays.
