EVA 6400 One controller Lost mirror port failed

Here's the picture,

We have lost controller A of our EVA 6400.

Controller B is UP and running, but the two mirror port are stated as failed. We have a second controler on hand, we try to hook it up to replace the Controller A since this one failed, but even with the new controller hooked up, the mirror port are still in the failed state on the remaining controller B!

How could I bring back up the mirror port on the remaining controller ?

We I hook all the cables and start the replaced controller, it raimains at HP EVA OCP COPYRIGHT 2008

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

The controller should do the POST process even without any cables connected except power.

The good controller will complain about the mirror ports until the second controller is up and running.

Did you transfer the flash card from the old to the new controller?


Hope this helps!

Yes we replaced the flash card in the new controller for the old controller, but we get stuck to the Copyright screen. And mp port do not comes up!

If the controller does not start POST it could be bad.

 

Consider to connect a serial terminal and watch the output.


Hope this helps!
