In Short:

You Install "CV for Windows" on a Windows Server (English) and this Server has an FC Connection to both EVA Controllers.
Than CV can see the EVA (by FC) and you are able to add this EVA to CV.
All "Volume Config" is passed (tunnel)  from CV Windows over FC to the Controller.

By default you need a FC Switch between EVA and Host:
If you try to direct connect you need to change the EVA FC Ports config.

-----------------

Verifying the communication path
Each installation of HP Command View EVA software on a management server is called a management
server. The management server is the interface to the array and must have access to the array through
the SAN. To verify the communication path between the array and the management server, select
an array in the Navigation pane. If the array (storage system) icon is green, communication is good
and you may continue with the array configuration. You cannot configure the array when the icon is
gray, which indicates a communication problem. If the array icon has a yellow triangle over it, there
may be a communication problem, a blower down, a bad cache battery, or other such problem that
requires attention. If the array icon has a red x over it, there is a communication failure. To resolve the
communication failure, see “Troubleshooting HP Command View EVA” on page 39. For a list and
description of HP Command View EVA icons, see Appendix B

You can also manage the array via the built-in management module, even without a management server.


Hope this helps!
