eva8000

Hi,

I was asked to try and hook up an eva8000 we just got in. I have never worked on one before. I have it up and running with out any errors on the drive trays and the switches. I do not know what machine to use to communicate with this and also do I hook the machine up to one of the ports on the switch or one of the ports on the controller? I know this is a lot of questions but if someone can point me in the correct direction I would appreciate this.

Thanks
Jon

Re: eva8000

Hi Jon,

now doing storage?
Locate and read the manuals from hp.com/go/bcs !

You need a windows server and install commandview (v 9.2) in order to configure this array. Get it from software.hp.com

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: eva8000

Hi,

Yes they have me trying to figure this out now without any training. I have been trying to get them to send me for training for over 2 years now. Does it matter what ver of windows server I can use?

Thanks
Jon

Re: eva8000

I cannot point you to a document at the moment, but IMHO it should be 2003 or 2008. The server must have a FC HBA, better 2 - one on each SAN, correctly zoned to see the EVA.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: eva8000

It is in the "EVA compatibility reference":
Windows 2003/2008, 32/64bit

Re: eva8000

Hi,

I am one step closer. I loaded a machine with windows 2003 server. I down loaded command view 9.2. I loaded it on the server. now when I try and start command view it asks me for a username and password. I did not set this up. Any Ideas?

Thanks

Re: eva8000

It uses a Windows username/password, but let's do a check before you try it:

Take a look into the local Windows groups or the Active Directoy environment. There should be two groups:
HP Storage Users
HP Storage Admins

The Windows user must be a member of the 'admins' group to have full access to all CV-EVA functions.

Re: eva8000

Hi,

under local user and groups there are 2 directories. user and groups. Under groups they are there.HP storage Admin and HP storage users.

Thanks

Re: eva8000

Good. You can take an account (can be "Administrator" for a quick test) from the local "Users" folder a member of the "HP Storage Admins" group and then use Administrator's password to login to CV-EVA.
No reboot is required ;-)
