Re: Help Please !! Looking for Documentation on

Most of this is not too bad, once you get into the command view eva software.

Locate your storage management server - It's usually a DL380. If setup properly, you should have a link on your desktop that takes you into the Insight Mgmt screen. You'll be prompted to login. Defaults account is "administrator" with a password of "hpinvent". Hopefully you're SAN guy left you with accounts/passwords.

Once logged into Insight Manager, you should see a link on the left side of the page called "command view eva". Run that.

This web-based utility will let you manage your EVA, including adding new disks into existing disk groups.

Help us out, by giving us more details about your environment.

Let me know if you can access the command view tool, and we can go from there.

You need password access to Command view eva, and a login to your cisco switches.

Once you have those passwords, we can continue.
