How to start with RAW Storageworks P4500



I have recently purchased re-furbished Storageworks P4500 G2 which is just the hardware. Need to mention that this is first time I am going to work on a HP storage. Can anyone help me how should I proceed?


Do I need to purchase any Lic/Software? If yes is there any option to get trial ones?

if your system is pre installed you can configure it but it will only work for 60 days the original system comes with a license that you should have recieved. Also if it is not installed you need a quick restore DVD but for this you must have a valid license.
