Windows 2000 on XCS6.200

Hi,

Windows 2000 is not supported on new arrays as MSA2000 and EVA4400, and the release notes of XCS 6.200 specifies no support of this OS.

Is it meaning an EVA-XL firmware upgrade disables every Windows 2000 hosts connected ?

Regards

Hi,

The release notes for XCS 6.200 do indeed state that support for Windows 2000 has been removed, however the latest Windows release notes:

http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01494618/c01494618.pdf

imply that Windows 2000 is still supported...

The SAN design reference guide, also states that Windows 2000 is still supported on XCS 6.110 and later.

http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00403562/c00403562.pdf

See the table on page 181.

I'll take a guess that Windows 2000 will carry on working fine with XCS 6.200. If you have a support contract I would push HP for a definitive answer on what is supported, given the rather contradictory documentation.

Cheers,

Rob

Hi,

thank you for these tips, it is really contradictory in the different docs.
