HP-UX 11.23:
2/3 hub is not supported except with single controller - firmware 4.48
direct connect: no boot from array
fabric: boot from array supported, msa1000 embedded 2/8 switch included

Re: MSA1000 boot HPUX

AFAIK it is supported to boot from these MSAs, just configure and connect the array and install the OS on it.

The other SAN array is very unlikely supported for boot ...

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: MSA1000 boot HPUX


Please correct me

I have MSA1000 with single controler (without hub) and now I have direct connection to server trough FC card, so for this configuration is impossible boot from MSA1000? no

If I connect MSA1000 to my IBM SAN switch 64port so i can boot trough fabric from MSA1000? yes


??

thanks

this variant is not supported (its the direct host to MSA connection)

this variant is supported (its the host to MSA connection via the fabric switch)

2/8 switch is MSA embedded san switch module (brocade) - supported

2/3 hub is MSA embedded san hub module - not supported (single controller - firmware 4.48 and hp-ux 11.23)

errata the word except was missing before after the bracket:

(except single controller - firmware >4.48 and hp-ux 11.23)
