HP CommandView SDM for VA7110

I am not sure if this is the right place for this question, but here goes.

I have 2 HP3000 N-class systems each attached to a VA7110 disk array. Recently, the PC attached to one of the VA arrays crashed, and has to have the HD replaced and OS re-installed. The PC ran HP CommandView SDM to monitor/maintain the VA7110. I have to re-install the software and reattach it to the VA7110, and I have a few questions.
1) Can I download CV SDM 1.08 from HP for W2Ksp4?
2) Can I download a driver for the HP FCA2101 card in the PC?
3) Are there any special considerations to configure/attach the HP CV SDM console so I do not lose any volumes on the VA7110? Is there a danger of damaging any of the MPE volumes on the VA7110?

Thanks for your time.

hi ray,

yes you can download the latest sdm software (i believe 1.09 is the latest. i'm running 1.09 without a problem).

you should be able to get the fibre card driver. i just downloaded the driver two days ago (for a new va/pc setup...) -- but i think i have a different card. give it a try....

for my orginal va/pc combination, i just finished swapping pc's and it went just fine. both mpe systems that share that va were blissfully ignorant. - d
