Re: install a new VA7410 with RP8400

In your situation, when you do not have experience, I would recommend you to ask HP to install your SAN (at least for your first time). It will be fast and at expert level.
Major steps are:
- installing FC HBAs to hosts, installing latest FC drivers, Diags, RG and HWE patch bundles;
- connecting FC HBAs to brocade switches, connecting VA to brocade switches;
- setting/checking host port behavior for VA to be as hpux, setting port type to fabric;
- installing CommandView SDM;
- configuring VA to have LUN 0 = 10MB, no user data. In acse of Security will be turned on assign default permission 'WC'
