AFAIK you would have to select a DS2110, or a DS2300 depending on your capacity needs.

Re: rp2470 and msa30

Hi,

From what I know, MSA30, Modula Smart Array 30, formerly known as StorageWorks 44XX enclosure, for time being is not supported under HP-UX. It is designated for HP ProLiant and HP Alpha servers to work under Windows, Linux, OpenVMS, True64 but not for HP9000 servers running HP-UX. Maybe someday HP will support MSA30 on HP9000, but for me at present time answer sounds like 'NO'. DS2100 or DS2300 is to be used instead.

BR,
OK

Re: rp2470 and msa30

Oleg read mail above :) You see that MSA30
is support form hp.

Others:

I have rp2600 with SCSI card is PCI Dual channel Ultra160 SCSI Adapter and MSA30.
I see that there is compatible SCSI protocol between SCSI CTL and MSA30.
It must be work. MSA30 is just disk box.
What I'm really worry about diagnostics and FW.
I know that DSXXX is supported but Bulgaria is cost sensitive.
Furst MSA30 is 14-drive enclosure. Second disk is more then 2 time cheap from DSXXX.

Product - A7143A
Part Number - A7143-69001 PCI 4-CHANNEL RAID 160 SA SCSI

Re: rp2470 and msa30

I can not use RAID CTL.
Anyway tanks again.
I'll try my config
rp2600 with SCSI card PCI Dual channel Ultra160 SCSI Adapter and MSA30.
And in any case I will write here my experience.
