HP-UX Installation on RX2660 with P600

Hello Gurus,
i have received a new rx2660 with Smart array P600 in it. I have created a RAID5 on the 5 disks connected to the controller.
My HP-UX DVD is version 2 Release December 2007.
When i boot from the internal DVD, HP-UX installation does not detect the logical drive on the P600.
What is to be done?
Thanks.

Unfortunately the P600 is not supported with hp-ux.

You need to use a P400 or the built-in SAS controller.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

If you don't have/want a P400, you can still connect the cable to the built-in controller (on system board), create 2 pairs of mirrored disks and use the other (or all) disks as individual drives.

Hope this helps!

When you go to order the P400 for your rx2660 be certain to use the product number for it from http://www.hp.com/go/rx2660 as that is (IIRC) the only way you will get the little board required to "enable" the low profile motherboard slot where one installs the P400 for internal discs.
