VA7400 - Host Port Behavior


Can I connect more than 2 type of OSs (say HP-UX, Windows, LInux and Netware simultaneously) to the VA? I think it can be done by defining the host port behavior.

Is there any know problems/issues with this configuration??

Re: VA7400 - Host Port Behavior

Yes, this works fine! Not only 2 but all supported OSes can share the same array and ports.
As you said you have to build a host port behavior table. See the installation manual on starting on page 45.

In order to be able to selectively present LUNs to individual servers you need to have SecureManager VA licensed (needed license = total net capacity of all LUNs to be presented). See
I guess you do not want Windows to see your HP-UX LUNs!!!
Look in the SecureManager VA Manual on starting on page 25 on how the SM tables are built.
