EVA5k adding new shelf and disks.

Hi All,

I have a few questions, I have EVA5000 with FW ver. 302x. I need to add and configure a new EVA shelf.

A) Is there a table/doc that tells me what size disk is supported?

B) What is the best practice for adding a new shelf_disks? Any doc.

Thanks,

Howdy,
Can you tell us what the "x" is in 3.02x? As 3.020 doesn't support some disks that 3.028 does.
EVA5000 support page is here -
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?〈=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=321347〈=en&cc=us

Here is best practice guide for configuration -
http://h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/downloads/5982-9140EN.pdf

Disk enclosures can be added "online" by breaking one loop at a time - you need at least 4 disks in an enclosure before the EVA will do anything with it. You'll find that the disk shelf should come with all of the necessary cables and a sheet of instructions.

How many shelves & disks do you have at present? Do you have loop switches?

Hope this helps

Ian, Thanks for the quick reply, Controller shows FW version 3020. What is the largest disk size I can goto. Do have just the steps to add a new disks to the enclosure?

Re: EVA5k adding new shelf and disks.

VCS 3.020 introduced support for 300GB FC and 250GB FATA drives.
However I recommend upgrading to VCS 3.028 due to reliability enhancements!
