S8 (8 slot chassis)

Goals
When a customer has two Fabric modules (the S8 supports up to three; in slots 4, 5, and 6), is there a recommendation as to which chassis slots should be used?

Solution
From a technical perspective the pair of fabrics may be installed into any of these three slots. There is no recommendation as to which two to populate. However, from a cable management perspective, it usually makes sense to populate two slot together first (either 4 & 5, or 5 & 6). With slots 4 & 6 populated, the cable path and density can make it more difficult to install a module into slot 5.
