Hello,

EVA6100 and 4100 use the same controllers, the difference are the loop-switches. An EVA4100 with loop-switches is a EVA 6100.

Sure you can use two HSV210 controllers and two M5314B or M5314C shelfs. Then you have a EVA4100 2C2D.

Best regards,
Patrick

I have EVA6100 unlimited LTU license. CVE 6K Unlimited License status is valid, but CVE General is expired. I can't manage EVA.

Licenses are validated by Command View EVA based on its configuration. If you do not use Device Loop switches, meaning you are using EVA4100, Hence 6K license wonâ t work. In order to make use of your License, it would be advisable to use your Storage as EVA6100, i.e with Device Loop Switch.

You can connect two or four disk enclosures to device loop switches, but when you using Loop switch, you must connect all disk enclosures via the switch only â Some connected directly, some via loop switch is not supported.
