Re: P411 and D2700

The D2700 cannot be shared between hosts.


Hope this helps!

Re: P411 and D2700

Ah I see,

I have only one Server with SCSI conenction with existing 4x D2700 enclosure, I guess I can just daisy chain it further.

Re: P411 and D2700

@Torsten. So in this case, D2700 can be stacked more than 5 using the P411 controller ?

Re: P411 and D2700

I really feel confused, sorry.

How many open threads do you have now regarding this topic?

5 or 6?

I lost the view.

Re: P411 and D2700

Yes, because I still haven't got the answer yet.

Hence I re-word my posting.

Re: P411 and D2700

The documentation is not so clear ...

From quickspecs:

http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/getpdf.aspx/c04111697.pdf?ver=45

Smart Array Controller P421 supports up to 200 drives for D2700 only
 
Up to eight (8) D2600 can be cascaded
for the P421 with a depth of
4 on each chain, for a total of 96 drives
 
Up to eight (8) D2700 can be cascaded for the P421 with a depth of
4 on each chain, for a total of 200 drives
 
Smart Array Controller P421 supports the mixing of the D2600 and the
D2700
for expansion
 
Supports eight (8) D2600 and/or D2700 allowing for expansion up
to 148 drives
 
 
from p411 quickspec
 
 
The SA P411 Controller supports up to 100 drives.
dditional drives can be supported with cache
and connection to an expander
 
Up to 50 TB of external storage per PCI slot with 8x HP StorageWorks 70 Modular Smart Array
enclosures or HP StorageWorks D2700 Disk Enclosures and 100 x 500GB SFF SATA hard drives
 
 
 
 
 
This would mean 8 enclosures (2 x 4 - 4 on each chain), but only 4 with dual domain, IMHO.
 
So why not daisy chain the new enclosure to the single D2600?
 
 
 
Next time, please open your OWN single thread regarding your question, please.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
