Re: EVA4400 and Tru64

Hi,

Good question... The QuickSpecs for the EVA4400 show a distinct lack of any reference to Tru64.

They do mention however that OpenVMS on Alpha is supported, which would suggest to me that Tru64 will be able to use an EVA4400 without any problems...

Maybe full support will come with 5.1B-5 when it's released sometime later this year.

Cheers,

Rob

Interestingly, the data sheet for the EVA4400 does list Tru64 as a supported OS:

Strange,

no other Tru64 reference, but this doc seems to be recent because speaking about embedded switches.

Thank you, i will follow next annoucements.

Hi,

Just read the latest SAN design reference guide here:

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

which specifically states:

"The EVA4400 is not supported with Tru64 UNIX" :-(

Cheers,
Rob

Re: EVA4400 and Tru64

GS1280 with Tru64 5.1B4 work fine with EVA4400 more than 6 month at production mode. But still "unsupported" ...
