Mezi,
you should connect 12h to HVD SCSI card(s) installed in K-server. Then LUNs will appear in the ioscan output. To manage array, you should install its software (hparray software), and maybe some patches

Tools for autoraid are kept in /opt/hparray/bin

so,
0) shutdown the d390
1) shutdown the autoraid 12h
2) unconnect 12h from d390
3) connect 12h to k200
4) start the k200
5) /sbin/init.d/hparray start ? ? ?
6) mounting ? ? ?

this process working?

(i'm full lame the hp servers, sorry :()

Add 'start autoraid' before starting server (step 4); To start autoraid management software type '/sbin/init.d/hparray start'; If this command will fail then you may need to install autoraid management software (located on one of CDs shipped with OS); If you have hpux volume groups created within the autoraid then run vgimport command to import these volumes into k200.
Notes: a) before doing it make sure you have autoraid data backed up; b) please make sure that all systems are grounded properly before disconnecting/connecting hardware
