The MSA60 will be connected to a Smart Array controller, so you'll use the Array Configuration Utility to create arrays and logical units.

This utility should be already installed, since it comes with the Proliant Support pack. In case it's not, here are the links:

Thanks a lot for the information and link that you send me. I download ACU software I can configute my MSA60 without problems.

I`ll appreciate if you can help me with two more questions:

1.- How can verify if the initialization of the array created is still running?. I check in the ACU software but I can detect if teh initialization is in progress or fineshed.

2.- What additional software have the Proliant Support Pack CD?
