How to add Drive Encosure Online to 3PAR 7200?

Hi,

"All maintenance and upgrade activities are performed online and non-disruptively and include hardware replacements/upgrades and software upgrades,..."

In "HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage Installation Guide" there is on Part C only a very short notice.

But I did not find any Information about witch Cable have to pulled first and going on.

Did anybody know how to go forward or have find some Information about?

Thanks, Armin

The install guide says:

For more information about cabling drive enclosures (S AS) before you continue to cable the system,
visit www .hp .com/go/3par. Scroll to Support, and click HP 3P AR StoreServ 7 000 Support and
then Manuals. Then scroll to Setup and install — general and select the specific HP 3P AR StoreServ
7 000 Storage Cabling Configuration Guide.

Thanks, I have read this before, but this is not the Full Story.

It is more about setting up a new Storage out of the Box.

 

For example: Nothing about admithw I needed

 

But thank's, It's done now.

OK, here is a Quick Guide:

- First create and add the new Drive license (if under 48)
- use checkhealth to see if 3PAR is OK
- Install the Cage with the new Disks and Power On
- prepare the SAS Cable
- Cable the new Shelf as found in the "7000 Series Storage Cabling Configuration Guide" (if online, one Node after the other and wait between) http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c04441589
- use showcage to check
- admithw (wait if firmware is applied)
- showpd -c (wait until all chunklets are initiaisized)
- use checkhealth to see if 3PAR is OK
- use tunesys to start leveling
