Eva4400: some beginner question

Please help if you can.

My first SAN is coming at home today,i have connected contrller left1 to disck right2

and controller right1 to disck left2,then i did the same with controller left2 to disck right1

and controller right2 to disk left1.

Another question,how to put the management module?

Seems a bit out of the case and don't wanna force/broken.

Re: Eva4400: some beginner question

The "04" is the number of the disk shelf, no error code.

 

Are you able to connect to the management module?

 

Is this a used array? Is it currently uninitialized (check from command view)?

 

This is how you cable the backend

Re: Eva4400: some beginner question

I make the cable correctly now,green green red red as your image said

This is the answer of managemente module

 

"his controller is inoperative because its FC loops or backplane mirror loops are inoperative. Correct the situation and click Restart to continue operation."

Re: Eva4400: some beginner question

This could be a hardware problem with either one of the controllers or the chassis itself. I would try to bring the array to life with a single controller first (CTRL1), the test with the other controller (e.g. swap them around etc).

Using command view initialize the array, do some setup, then insert the other controller.


Hope this helps!
