1GB Fiber Card for RP3440 Server

I'm on HPUX 11.11 and need to get a 1GB fiber card for my server. My vendor have given me already two wrong ones card we purchase already and he said that the A7011A will work. I have check the site but not sure this is what we need a well because it showing up as a 2GB fiber card. However if this is the card then please let me know. Also if I need to install software and patches for this card then where I can I get it. Please let me know as well.
This server will be put into production on Wednesday and do I not need any more headache.

Thanks..

A7011A is not a 2Gb card but 2-port 1GB ethernet card.
Please see
http://www.hp.com/products1/serverconnectivity/adapters/ethernet/index.html

Also see for card installation instructions
http://docs.hp.com/en/5971-4261/index.html

Note that A7011A is Gigabit over fibre and A7012A is Gigabit over Copper - your UTP cabling. So use card suitable according to cabling you will be using or other way round.

Re: 1GB Fiber Card for RP3440 Server

A7011A is for networking, do you need a card for mass storage or networking?




Here is a list of cards (mass storage):

A 2GB card can work with only 1GB too.

You will need to load the driver software.



Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: 1GB Fiber Card for RP3440 Server

Hi Ray,

Is this for your LAN (networking) or for your HBA (storage adapter). If it's an HBA then specify whether you're looking at either SCSI or Fiber Channel.
