VA7410 and DS2405

Hi,

I am in process of configuring one VA7410 and two DS2405 for SAN.

Can you please advise me FC cable diagram to connect all three devices with two hosts for High Availablity Env.

Meanwhile, I have connected them refering VA7410 manual. And when I format them, getting error.. NOT ENOUGH DRIVES.

What does this error mean.. But all self test has been passed successfully

Thanks

Navid,
what does 'armdsp -a' say? Please attach. I'm sure that everything you need is in the user and service manual at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&locale=en_US&docIndexId=179111&taskId=115&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=89018

Hi,

Thanks for the your effort.
I have made it working in adopting following way -
First connect console on VA7410 while other DS2405 are in off condition
Format VA7410 via console and when it comes to ready state. Power on both DS2405 array which are connected to VA7410.

Then automatically, it has added in array. First it gave.. error warning state and after 3 min , it has added to VA7410.

Earlier, I was trying to connect DS2405 with
VA7410 and trying to format which has caused problem,


Thanks ..

Re: VA7410 and DS2405

If you would read user and service manual you would find a process on how to add disks and JBODs. Generally you did right although you had to add empty JBOD and then add disks, one in each RG at a time, and wait until they are formatted and included into disk set before adding another disk into each RG
