Re: HP StorageWorks Software Needed

Hi,

I don't recall ever needing any software to configure an MA8000.

By far the best way is to connect up to the serial console on the HSG80 and set things up from there.

That said I don't think I've ever used a HSG80 with 4.0F.

Of the documents that have already been mentioned, the one to concentrate on is the Command Line Interface doc:

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00309747/c00309747.pdf

That should have all the infomation you need to allow you to create LUNs etc.

Regards,

Rob

Be happy. 4.0 does not support FC multipathing so you need to put a dual-controller system into the simpler 'dual-redundancy' failover mode and you have to deal with connection offsets (the unit number defines which controller manages the storageset during normal operation).

I read in the attached document(Release Notes â

Table 6: Minimum System Requirements
Patch Kit requirements for Tru64 UNIX are as follows:

StorageWorks Command Console
SWCC provides a graphical user interface that can be used to configure and monitor
your storage system. Use of SWCC is highly recommended, but not required.


So Please Help me to find a download link For SWCC 2.5...
