MSA 1000 configuration

Can I connect IBM Server as a host to MSA 1000? FC HBA is compatible with IBM server.


Re: MSA 1000 configuration

Yes you can connect MSA1000 to an IBM host.
Recommended to use HP HBAs like FCA2214.

Re: MSA 1000 configuration

You should specify the IBM model (POWER, INTEL x86, Itanium) and OS (LINUX, AIX, MS Windows, Novel, etc.) and even HBA.

From the quickspecs.

"Heterogeneous support is standard for Microsoft Windows® Server 2003 (32-bit and 64-bit) Windows 2000, Windows NT®, NetWare and Linux (32-bit and 64-bit) operating systems. In addition this firmware provides separate support for Alpha servers in a Tru64 UNIX® or OpenVMS environment. Information about the support for these two operating systems is included in a separate QuickSpec for the MSA1000 attached to Alpha-based servers. HP also expanded the MSA1000's operating system coverage with the addition of basic HP-UX and SCO support in limited, homogeneous configurations."
