Re: show to manage MSA on OS?

let's consider it was a MSA1000, and people said it could be managed by ACU,is that right? and it is an HP_UX 11.11.

Re: show to manage MSA on OS?

Well, there is an ACU as CLI for HP-UX, but I have never seen it.


Consider to use ACU from a windows/linux proliant or the CLI over serial line (even from hp-ux).

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Torsten,
>but I have never seen it.
you meant that ACU was not an HP_UX suitable software?

>CLI over serial line (even from hp-ux).

Re: show to manage MSA on OS?

it is so expensive for me to manage MSA using cable, so I just want to know how to manage MSA from os.

Re: show to manage MSA on OS?

You probably know the ACU from windows, this is a nice GUI.

There is also an OS based CLI available, also a version for hp-ux (a CLI, no GUI).


The CLI over serial line is running on the controllers, you just need to connect via a serial cable (9 pin to RJ11) directly to one of the controllers to get access to this CLI.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: show to manage MSA on OS?

an ironic fact is that this serial cable for MSA cost more than one thousand YUAN here, much more than i could afford

Re: show to manage MSA on OS?

BTW, if you get a new backplane for an EVA 4400 disk enclosure, you get such a cable for free included ... ;-)


Isn't it delivered with the MSA?

Hope this helps!

Re: show to manage MSA on OS?

There are two CLI's. One is with serial cable to the front of the controller.

The other is ACU-CLI which is accessing the msa over SCSI or however the server access the storage.

The first batches of the MSA1000 did not come with a cable.
