MSA1000 global_ris

I am trying to configure a new MSA1000 with redundant internal switches and redundant controllers for a VMWare ESX 2.5.0 system. When trying to add a new connection through the CLI I get an error stating that 'connection information cannot be saved because the global_ris is NULL.' I can't find any reference to this parameter anywhere: google, HP manuals/PDFs...nothing. The controllers are running firmware rev 4.32 build 300 and the hardware rev is 7. Does anyone have any insight to this error?

Thanks,
Scott

Re: MSA1000 global_ris

RIS, if I recall correctly, is short for 'RAID information sector' and means the meta data area of each physical disk drive use by a SmartArray controller.

It looks like you first have to create at least one logical disk so that the controller can save the data.

Uew,

Thank you very much. That solved my problem. I created a unit and then was able to add/setup the connections.

Thanks again.
