MSA2000 P3 FC

Hello, I have a MSAP2000 G3 FC connected to 2 ESXi via FC, everyone ESXI is connected to each controller on the MSA2000, for redundancy.

Now, I've bought 2 StorageWorks 8/24 FC switch, that I want to use with the MSA2000 and three ESXI, 2 of them are the ones that are already connected directly to the MSA via FC.

My doubt is regarding the LUN's that I already have configured on those 2 ESXI, that are from MSA2000.

If I connect the MSA2000 to both StorageWorks and the ESXi also to both StorageWorks, would I lose the LUN's, or will them be visible as before?

Thanks a lot,

Re: MSA2000 P3 FC

No problem.

The LUNs stay intact.

You can do it also online, first change one Port (rescan), then the other.

You have to reconfigure the MSA  Port for the Switch (Loop - Point) connection.


======================
That was not planned in this way.

Re: MSA2000 G3 FC - P2000 FC

... since you are about the handle the switch firmware right now (your other thread), don't forget to check the P2000 too, current version is TS252P001.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: MSA2000 G3 FC - P2000 FC

Hi Torsten,

Do I have to be in a specific version to upgrade to the last one?

 

I've read it says:

 

NOTE: Please upgrade all your arrays to TS250 or latest released firmware version before going with TS252 flashing.

How do I know wich version I am on? On Enclosure View, I see a line with this information:

EMP A Revision 2023

EMP B Revision 2023

I can't figure out how to link it to TSxxx.
