HSV 200B + 11.23 + Blade bl860c + c7000 Enclosure

Here I would like to do some R & D...Or may be like to learn something on the storage side as well from you gurus...

I have a box by the name "HP Storageworks HSV200B" ... I thought this could be an EVA..

This is not connected to any server and just sleeping always..like me

I would like to connect this to the C7000 Enclosure which is fully loaded with bl860's

Now to connect this to the EVA which cable should I use and connect from which port of the EVA to which port of the C7000... So that my baldes can see it.

I am not sure if my query makes any sence...If it dosent I will try to make it more meeningful...

Well you would need some Fibre CHannel (FC) mezzanine cards in your blades (if "ioscan -funCfc" returns nothing you don't have any)

You would then need either FC passthru or FC switch modules in the interconnect bays of the blade chassis to connect to the EVA.

You would have to hope that the EVA also has a Command View EVA management server somewhere that you can connect to to manage this...

And cables? Well you'd need standard LC connector multi-mode (50/125) fibre cables.

# ioscan -funCfc
Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
========================================================================
fc 0 0/3/0/0/0/0 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP 4Gb Dual Port PCI
e Fibre Channel Mezzanine (FC Port 1)
/dev/fcd0
fc 1 0/3/0/0/0/1 fcd CLAIMED INTERFACE HP 4Gb Dual Port PCI
e Fibre Channel Mezzanine (FC Port 2)
/dev/fcd1

So looks like I have 2 Mezzanine cards in each of the blades...

I also have FC passthru or FC switch modules in C7000 Enclosure

but where should I connect this cable on the EVA...

Which is it - if its a passthru module you'll need some FC switches somewhere as you can't direct connect an EVA to HPUX.

If its switches then you should press on with some reading...

Might be a good place to start.

Is there currently nothing plugged into the FP ports? Is there no Command View EVA server to manage this EVA? If there isn't you can plug what you like where you like, it aint gonna work...

I didn't think it was possible to buy an EVA without also getting installation included. You *really* don't want to start configuring an EVA from scratch yourself - you should check whether you have paid for installation services. I'm sure you will have as I don't think its an option to buy without that.
