EVA controller as a remarketed product issue

Hi,


I want to buy an EVA controller to use as a spare part for my existing EVA storage. After sending the following part number AD554A (located at the back of the existing EVA) for quotation for a new EVA controller, the HP Distributer is telling me the following:

According to the price list this item is obsolete! It only exists as a remarketed product and those are not supported in our area

I don't understand the statement above very well. Does it mean that if one of my existing EVA Controllers (A or B) fails, I can no more get a replacement part to buy ?

I may be in a critical situation in any moment from now if I don't get a perfect replacement part that matches the Original or the existing one ?

Please Advice.


Regards,
Berag

Re: EVA controller as a remarketed product issue

Hi Berag,

The part number AD554A is for the whole EVA4000, not just the controller.

That part number is obsolete, because it is no longer sold as new by HP. There shouldn't be any issues getting hold of just a controller.

Try searching on PartSurfer...

Hope this helps,
