HP OpenView 2.1 - W2003 Compatible?


We have a Windows 2000 Server running HP OpenView 2.1 which is going to be upgraded to Windows Server 2003.

My question is therefore, is HP OpenView 2.1 compatible with Windows Server 2003?

Thanks, Ben

"HP OpenView" is an umbrella-name for many products.

From the version numbers it sounds like you have an old SANworks Storage Management appliance.

That box is end-of-life and out-of-support for quite some time. The management framework (OSM - Open SAN Manager) has not been ported to W2003.

To offer more advice it is necessary to understand you environment. E.g. what type of storage array (HSG , EVA) and what version you are running.

Hi thanks for the reply.
I am not a SAN Administrator and am unable to answer your questions.
I am aware that the SAN is out of date and is soon to be decommissioned but we need to upgrade it for Government requirements.

I have access to the management console though, can you guide me through what info you need?
