Connecting MSA30 to MSL6000

Hello,

Is it possible to connect MSA30 to MSL6000? My main goal is to configure the MSA30, and create partitions and file system on it.

Thanks,
Zubair

Re: Connecting MSA30 to MSL6000

Maybe I did not understand the question, but the MSL6000 is a tape library and the MSA30 is a disk chassis - you need to connect both to a server.
Connecting disks to this library does not work.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Connecting MSA30 to MSL6000

Thank you for the response. I have a MSA30 that may need to be configured, but I do not have a spare controller like a MSA1000. I was wondering if the MSL6000 has a controller, where I can configure the MSA30. According to your answer, this is not possible.

Hi,

You cannot configure an MSA30 - it is just a disk shelf.

Any configuration will need to be done on whatever controller you are planning on connecting the MSA30 to.

(and no you can't connect it to an MSL6000).

Cheers,

Rob

Thanks.

I will create a new thread, as the issue is different. I will name the thread Can't see MSA30 on RHEL.
