OneConnect for iSCSI HBA on blade G7 servers

Chris needed some assistance in finding iSCSI info:




Where do we find the OneConnect software to configure the iSCSI HBAs on G7 blades running 2008 R2. The blade download pages lists One Connect but for Fibre Channel (FC).

Is the FC version also for iSCSI? The Emulex page links to an HP propaganda page without links to drivers or utilities.

I know with ESX you select the iSCSI HBA and hit properties to configure. The iSCSI HBA can also be configure from its Nic bios setting, but there has to be an easier way.


Thank you




Scott had some recent experience:




This may help. I went through this with a customer recently.


And of course the Utils and Binaries are there as well (Below is 460G7 RHEL5 specific);




Any other comments or suggestions?

Re: OneConnect for iSCSI HBA on blade G7 servers

The issue it that OneConnect in Windows 2008 R2 does not detect the NC553i adaptor as ISCSI HBA.


I still can't see how to define ISCSI HBA settings such as  IP address from the OS and not Virtual connect or the BIOS. The links provided we're any help.


Can you not define the ISCSI Hba settings from the OS i.e Windows?
