Re: 4354R all 14 disks are visible to both machines

Hello,
for answering your question it is necessary how you have connected the machines and what i/o-module is inserted into the shelf?
If you have a dual bus i/o-module and connected one machine to one port and the other machine to the other port, then you should see for both machines seven disks (scsi-id from 0 to 5 and 8).

this almost soundsl ike there is a switch on the shelf to control how the unit operates... off = standard dual bus vs. on = single bus for shared access/clustering.

I don't recall the 4354R ever having this capability, I could be mistaken though.

Another possibility is that you have a newer MSA30 (effectively the same as a 43xxR) with the 4 port I/O module specifically used for shared storage in NON windows based systems (HP-UX/Linux, etc). HP Claims that it is not supported in Windows, but would probably work to some extent.


Let us know more details of the shelf, maybe a picture of the back if you can swing it?
