VA7100

I am thinking of renting a "Virtual Array 7100"
auto raid external device to get me through this PeopleSoft conversion. Question:
If I get this VA7100, will I need any specific software to control it? Or will it be like configuring a 12H model with ARMserver?

Thanks,
Bob Menefee

Robert,

You need the SDM software to manage it.

Re: VA7100

Have a look at page 10-12. You need CommandView SDM.

Hi Rob,

You can also use the serial port on the back of the array controller to configure this array. Check the array manuals.

Hope this helps.

Re: VA7100

The VA comes with a serial cable for connecting to the VFP (Virtual Front Panel) command-line interface. You can use a PC or laptop to connect via HyperTerminal - 9600, 8, none, 1.

From there you can create LUNs and everything else you need to use the array.

Command View SDM is a nice management tool that does quite a bit more than just configure the array, but is not required to use the array.

Good luck!
No matter where you go, there you are.
