MSA30 Dual Bus and DL380 G4 servers


I would like to know that is manner of connection a MSA30 Dual Bus enclsure to two different DL380 G4 servers with Smart Array 6402 RAID adapters.

I would like to configure 5 disks to each server. Server A should not be able to see the disks attached to server B.

Where can I find MSA30 DB PROPER user guide ??

Thanks in advance,

Re: MSA30 Dual Bus and DL380 G4 servers

While the two SCSI busses are separated, I don't think that it is supported nor a good idea, because modern RAID controllers talk to the EMU. There have been reports about strange behaviour when an MSA30 DB was connected to two different MSA1000.

Link to the MSA30 documentation:
