Re: How to restart properly an MSA60

Hi,
I got this from Maintenance and Service Guide

Power down the storage enclosure
CAUTION: In systems that use external data storage, be sure that the server is the first unit to be powered
down and the last to be powered back up. Taking this precaution ensures that the system does not
erroneously mark the drives as failed when the server is powered up.
IMPORTANT: If installing a hot-plug device, it is not necessary to power down the storage enclosure.
1. Power down any attached servers. See the server documentation.
2. Press the Power On/Standby button on the storage enclosure.
Wait for the system power LED to go from green to amber.
3. Disconnect the power cords.
The system is now without power.

Thanks

Thank you for your help. What about monitoring the performance of MSA60 connected to a Server 2003 environment? I saw SIM (System Insight Manager). What about you? What do you use managing and monitoring your MSA60?

Sorry,I Don't have MSA60.

HP Systems Insight Manager will be used to manage the MSA.In the product discription document I can see,Browser based Insight Manager 7 provides full access from anywhere on the Intranet, eliminating the need for a dedicated Insight Manager console.
