RHEL5 host connection to MSA2012FC

Hi,

We have 1 "MSA2012fc DC MSA" connected with "DL580 G5 SERVER" directly through "HP FC1243 4GB PCI-X 2.0 DC HBA", i have installed RHEL 5.5 in DL580 G5 server, please guide me through steps to configure define mount points in the SAN.

P.S. MSA 2012fc have 10 x 146 GB 15k 3.5" SAS HDD and we have configured RAID - 1+0 with five equal partitions in it. snap shot attached.

Re: RHEL5 host connection to MSA2012FC

we have two HBA's directly connected to MSA2000fc so we may probably need some multipath software configuration as well.
(i missed that one early)

Re: RHEL5 host connection to MSA2012FC

I would first get the HP PSP kit.

or (all can be found on HP bizsupport site)

Updated driver kit for the FC1243
FIBREUTILS

then

HPDMmultipath enablement kit.

then
configure multipath by editing /etc/multipath.conf

if you wish to use LVM ( recommended )
pvcreate (using multipath names /dev/mapper/xxx )
vgcreate VolGroupName(s) /dev/mapper/xxx
lvcreate -L size_mb -n lvolname VolGroupName
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/VolGroupName/lvolname
edit /etc/fstab
mkdir /mount_point
mount /mount_point

This should get you going.
