Re: MSA1000

Hmm, I don't see that the Fabric Switch 6 is supported with this firmware.

I suggest you connect a serial cable and a PC/Notebook to the controller's maintanance port and watch until it goes 'offline' again. Maybe it gives a helpful message.

Re: MSA1000

I was able to go back to a compatibility list from 2005, but the switch was not listed any longer. Selling of this switch must have stopped between March and May 2003.

There was some discussion recently, how to pick up the last firmware from an MSA1000 software CD per download, but I did not save the URL, sorry.

Unfortunately, even if this works, this will not change the fact that the switch is no longer supported with today's software.

If you really depend on a supportable solution (maybe you have a service agreement with HP), you need to replace the switches. You can swap them with the MSA SAN switch 2/8 or you can replace the switches with "Fibre Channel I/O modules" and connect them to external switches.
