Re: Open-E volumes on the XP 1024

This is not a new installation, this system has been in place for quit some time now. I just want to configure Open-E luns on our XP1024. Do you know how to do this ? Or point me in the right direction ?

Thanks,
Armando

Hi,

you have to use SVP (notebook inside XP) and you should find some application there, which does it. But I aggre with Essilor, that someone who is familiar with configuration rules should do it. In our case, we don't have access to SVP.

Agree with previous posts as these activities are done by HP CE. However you can look at the documentation in the link:

Hi Armando,

First, you should NEVER open the doors on your XP and use the SVP. The SVP is for HP CE use only. ALWAYS use Command View or Remote Control to map LUNs.

If you are unfamiliar with mapping LUNs, I would have to say it would be better to contact HP (Yes, I am an HP employee, but I think it is best for you). XP's can be complex, and if you don't know what you are doing you could set up the mapping poorly (performance-wise), and worse case cause problems. I have to play the education card - maybe you could either take a class, or have HP come onsite to help you.

Sincerely,

Re: Open-E volumes on the XP 1024

I agree with Curt and the rest. Your request is a specialized task that requires a knowledge of how your XP is set up and how to divvy up Command Devices, LUNs, LDEVs, etc., using CommanView XP (NOT the SVP!). I hope you're not the poor guy that has been "plopped down" into an environment without the necessary training, but if that's the case you should call HP and ask for help. Good luck!

Hi Armando,

I've heard this from many people:

Don't touch the system - put your hands in your pockets and call HP!

;-))

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
