Hi,
I think the card is A6402 initially it was certified in a NT box but now this card can be use in a HP-Unix box as well. Please advice

Hi Vincent,

you shoud download correct HP-UX driver for HP-UX 11i v1 (HP-UX 11.11)

http://www.software.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=A9890A

The driver shoud have revision B.11.11.03.

The documentation
"HP A9890A Smart Array 6402 Controller Support Guide HP-UX 11i v1, 11i v2"
http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/pdf/J6369-90009.pdf
will be helpful to install the driver and to configure RAID card. After installation of the driver you can also read man page for saconfig utility

man saconfig

I'm not sure if proliant's version of SA6402 card (P/N: 273915-B21) has the same firmware as HP-UX version (P/N: A9890A). Under HP-UX only A9890A card is supported.

Re: Re : How to configure MSA30 in rp3410

Hi guys,
thanks for the help and info, I manage to configure the msa30 to my requirement . Appreicate it. Just one more question, assuming I have 6 x 72GB configure to raid 1+0, how many disk can be afford to fail at one time . Let say I want to configure a spare, is it that I have to add two more 72GB disk so that I can do that???

Re: Re : How to configure MSA30 in rp3410

Hi,

for RAID 1+0
Several disks in the array can fail without incurring data loss, as long as no two failed disks belong to the same mirrored pair.

No loss of data as long as none of failed disks are mirrored to another failed disk (up to half of the physical disks in the array can fail)

Re: Re : How to configure MSA30 in rp3410

Hi,

Is it required to have a SA6402 controller to attach MSA30? Can I attach MSA30 on a normal LVD SCSI controller?

Thanks,

Hi Abdul

you can connect MSA30 to normal LVD.
