Help with 3PAR E200 Initialization

I have a used HP 3PAR E200. I performed a "setsysmgr wipe" on the system. It comes up and sees all the drives and cages, but when i try to make changes it gives me an error about the admin volme not being available. For instance "The admin volme needs to be available to change the network configuration". I also get "Error: the PR must be running on the admin volume to update SystemName".  When i run showld i see admin.0 and admin.1 . What do i need to do to get this up and running? Running Inform 2.3.1




P.S. This thread has been moved from Storage Area Networks (SAN) (Enterprise) to HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage

You need be able to login to the array to use ootb.

Or use the SP to do that.

I can login using user:3paradm, password:3pardata .  How do i use ootb? I do not see that as a command. Was that available on Inform 2.3.1?


Re: Help with 3PAR E200 Initialization

OOTB refers to the Out Of The Box process where the HP 3PAR array is initialized. It is not a CLI command. It and MOB are processes that is normally performed by HP service as part of the initial configuration. (MOB: Moment Of Birth process where the Service Processor is initialized.)


You should try opening a case with HP Support: 1-800-633-3600. The system uses a voice-response menu. Use the menu shortcut “Storage” then “3PAR”.
