Is possible create in a same floor plane two Data Halls (DH) and each DH with two corridors ?
I created the DH and corridors to place cooling units (CRAC downflow), how DCO assume which corridors will supply (cooling) the specific DH ?

You can use vertical grills to model your cooling configuration. You can configure incoming and outgoing airflow for each Data Hall.

Hi Valentin WE have a DC where CRACs are in a corridor adjacent to the data hall. Can vertical grilles be used for both hot air return near the ceiling as well as under raised floor for supply? Thanks

How can I associate the vertical grill to the room, i put the vertical grille on the Data Hall, but how I can associate this to the technical corridor (CRACs room) ?

I thibk the only way to limit CRAC cooling to a white space area is to have them both in a single room. All the white space load in a room is cooled by one or more CRACs in the room. A CRAC can only cooling in one room. I use walls to model corridors on a raised floor. So if you have 2 rooms with 2 corridors, you will need to model 2 rooms, each with a corridor (using a wall).
It sounds like you also want a single view of both rooms so I would use a "Floor Plan" (and optionally load a AutoCAD or similar single drawing showing both rooms and corridors) then model both rooms under the Location. This might do some of what you're after.
