Re: Guid me ; I can not initialize EVA4100.

1) EVA 4100 contains only one cache battery module per controller. Hence, when this module fail, cache battery system status is also failed. You need to replace cache battery module of the controller A. You will need to connect controller B to find the status of cache battery before ordering a replacement.


2) You will need to buy required FC cables and connect controller B also to the SAN.


3) You will need to connect both controllers to SAN and verify more details of this error from Command View EVA.


4)This happens because you have not initialize EVA.


My advice is to connect both controllers to SAN, replace failed batteries and then initialize EVA.
