Expanding a simple Proliant & MSA P2000 Setup. What about the CLI (USB) Interface !?

Our Setup consists of : one DL380 and one P2000 with iSCSI Dual Controller and we are planning to expand this by adding two more P2000 (iSCSI) to it.


So far the iSCSI cabling will be done according to the P2000 manual, but whats a bit unclear to me is the CLI cabling.

Do i have to connect every P2000 via USB to the Server ?

Do i have to connect them only once for initialization ?
Or is the connection of the first P2000 to the Server/CLI enough and the other P2000 will communicate solely over iSCSI ?

I'd say you only need to do it during initialization (set up IP and things like that).

 

You should have the management interfaces cabled - you may want to have the USB cabled all the time as well - could be useful for troubleshooting.
