Hi,
1. you need to populize each disk enclosure with minimum of 1 disk
2. disk placement rules when adding an expansion cabinet:

Hi,

You don't say what model EVA you're talking about... However the Hardware Configuration Guide should help.

HP appear to have removed these from their website for some reason, but you can find a copy of the EVA3/5000 version here:

Hope this helps,

hi, it's not really about load balancing the controllers, more balancing the loops. On the 8000 you would need to use shelf id 15 and 18 if you are going to fill the enclosures, 16,17,19 and 20 could not use the last three bays. not sure if this applies to the 8100. are these going into a second rack? If so you will need the EAB expansion also.
