Replacing with a new HP EVA Controller

Hi,

I've just gotten a new controller from HP to replace the defective one. Upon switching on the new controller the following message was displayed:
HP EVA OCP
COPYRIGHT 2005
This message has been there for one hour now.
Can somebody explain to me what is happening ?

Regards,
Berenger

Re: Replacing with a new HP EVA Controller

Hi,

What sort of EVA controller are you talking about...?

I'll take a guess that there isn't a program card installed into the replacement controller...

Cheers,

I am talking about EVA 4000, please.

Re: Replacing with a new HP EVA Controller

Hi,

Can you explain exactly what you've done so far...

On earlier EVAs (3000 & 5000) when a controller was replaced, you had to remove the program card from the faulty unit and install it into the replacement controller.

I'd expect that you'd have to do a similar procedure on an EVA4000.

Cheers,

Rob

hi,

you can download the eva4000 user manual here :

eva controller is not a csr like controller power supply or blower, hence, you may want to call hp to replace the controller for you.

Hi,

Thank you very much for your contributions.
The program card is now inserted into the replacement controller. The EVA is now fully operational with redundant controllers.
