EVA5000 - cannot initialize

EVA5000, SMA 2.0 SP4, SANWorks Edge Switches 2/32. Every attempt to initalize storage system fails with error "Media is Innaccessible". Any hints?

Re: EVA5000 - cannot initialize

try to restart Command view EVA, if that doesn`t work, reboot the appliance.

Re: EVA5000 - cannot initialize

Have you entered the WWN and checksum in the OCP (On the controller)?

Do you have zoning set up, and if so, do you have a zone that includes the management appliance, and the controllers?

Re: EVA5000 - cannot initialize

When Media inaccesable is returned
(a failure of a SCMI command),
it means the EVA has been discovered. Zoning and WWN will not be a problem i guess.

Most probably the NSA service crashed.
Restarting Command view EVA is then a solution, and if that doens`t work, rebooting the appliance does.

Re: EVA5000 - cannot initialize

Thank you all for your responses. I have solved the problem. I had factory preinstalled firmware ver. 3001. After I downgraded firmware to ver. 3000 which I had im my VCS kit problem disappeared.

The question is why HP delivers firmware 3000 in VCS kit and 3001 installed.
