HP StorageWorks MSA Storage P2000 G3 FC Hot Swap

We've got an older P2000 G3 which has two iSCSI controllers (P/N: BK829B).

Since we're updating all storage and hosts to FC (P/N: AP836B), we would like to know if it's possible to hot-swap the controllers.

For instance, we would like to;

- disable the partner firmware update
- remove iSCSI controller #1
- replace it with an FC controller
- update the partner firmware update so both controllers are in sync
disable the partner firmware update
- remove iSCSI controller #2
- replace it with an second FC controller
- update the partner firmware update so both controllers are in sync

Could you please advise if this is correctly?

Re: HP StorageWorks MSA Storage P2000 G3 FC Hot Swap

It is not supported to run different controller models in the same array, hence you should not try this.

In addition you need to completely rework all the LUN mapping.


Hope this helps!
