Re: SAS drive MDS600 to BL460c G6

Re: SAS drive MDS600 to BL460c G6

Install the SAS switches in the Balde enclosure.

Install the MDS in the RACK.
Install disks
Power it on

Connect the MDS to the SAS switches.
Ensure you got latest FW on both SAS switches and the MDS.

Install Smart Array P700m controllers, in the server(s) that need connection to the MDS.

Start up the server.

If you have got a 1.xx FW you can't do a disk presentation. All servers can see all disks.

FW 2.xx or newer. You must create disk groupes and and present the disks to the servers.

Then you can create arrays on the disks, like on any other Samrt Array.

For the MDS, Read the deployment guide on the cabling:〈=en&cc=dk&docIndexId=64902&taskId=101&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=3936271

for the SAS switch, read the deployment guide:〈=en&cc=dk&docIndexId=64903&taskId=101&prodTypeId=3709945&prodSeriesId=3832737

It's not difficult.
