EVA 3000 and new disks

can I group new disks in my EVA300 at the same time or should I do it disk-by-disk and awaiting the levelling process to finish?


Btw. can somebody point me to a link for downloading fibre channel disk drive firmware ?

Re: EVA 3000 and new disks

Hi Rainer,

It is advisable to do it all at the same time. Change your number of disks in your diskgroup configuration. If you do it all at the same time the relevelling will only be excuted once.

In the other case it will be executed for each disk you add.

No idea where you can download the firmware

Last time I checked, EVA disk drive firmware was not available to end-users.

Hi,
The best way is group all the disks at the same time. If you group one disk at time you will have one leveling for each drive.

The firmware of the disks is avalable only through the HP Support.
