Moving Disk Shelves within an EVA

Moving Disk Shelves within an EVA

Dear All,

Two questions

(1) How to identify an EVA if it is 6000 or 6100?

(2) We have a HP 6000 EVA and want to move 2 of its disk shelves (together with the disks) to another EVA which happens to be 6100. Is this possible? Are the disk shelves compatible?

Re: Moving Disk Shelves within an EVA

Hey, 

 

I'm a bit unsure about (1) but the difference is probably lying in what kind of loop switches are used in the back-end between disk shelves' I/O modules and HSV controllers. 


If you compare the hw-revision on the IO modules on the disk shelves - are they different between the two EVAs?

Thanks. I called HP, quoting them our Care Pack number so they can see all serial numbers etc and they confirmed it should be compatible.

I would appreciate if someone could point me to some documentation, best-practice guide on how to add an enclosure on a 6100 EVA please.

Below two guides should help you on this.

 

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01364500/c01364500.pdf -- HW configuration guide

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01721462/c01721462.pdf -- User guide.

 

Ensure that you cable the additional enclosure as per the HW configuration guide. User guide explain the best practices on creating disk groups & vdisks.
