EVA4400 - Windows Server 2016

I was asked to create a new Windows Server 2016 Hyper-v Cluster, and present storage from our EVA4400, but i'm facing real problems on this task. I see all storage on the servers, but its imposible to work with this storage, extremely slow access.

We have storage correctly presented from the same EVA to VMware 6 and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, but it seems something changed on server 2016 version that does not permit to use our EVA4400.

Any idea how to solve this? Any "Custom type" operating system values?

 

Hardware versions:

StorageWorks Command View EVA v9.02.01.100426 (on Windows server)

EVA4400 - HSV300 - Version: 09534000 - Software: CR18CBlep-09534000

Guest Server: Microsoft Windows Server 2016 on a ProLiant BL460c Gen9

Re: EVA4400 - Windows Server 2016

Hi VDIAS,

As per HPE SPOCK (Single Point of Connectivity Knowledge), Windows 2016 is NOT a supported operating system for EVA4400 array.  As per SPOCK, Windows 2012 is supported.  Please refer SPOCK website for more information on compatibility:

https://h20272.www2.hpe.com/SPOCK/index.aspx 

Also, please note that the EVA4400 is running an inactive code (Version: 09534000).  You should get this to active firmware 11300000.  Also, CV EVA needs updated to 10.3.8.

Thank You!

Re: EVA4400 - Windows Server 2016

Just finish the reinstalation of all servers with Windows Server 2012 R2 and the problem presist.

Looks like the problem is related to hardware/firmware versions... is there any tool to get a full report/diagnostic?

Do you guys recomment to use Microsoft MPIO o HP MPIO?

Re: EVA4400 - Windows Server 2016

The firmware you are running is unsupported since year 2013.

Consider to upgrade to 11300000 or even upgrade to  newer hardware.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: EVA4400 - Windows Server 2016

Hi,

I was able to verify that for a Windows Server 2016 cluster in the Command View the host operating system must be indicated as Windows Server 2012.

when creating a host."

Hope this helps!
Best Regards
