OS Upgrade on server with existing MSA2012fc

Hi

We have a Hp server running W2003 (32 Bit ) connected to a MSA2012fc with 2 enclosures preseting 2 virtual drives D and E on the server

The firmware on the MSA is J202P01 which supports w2008 x64

We need to do a clean install of W2008 R2 Enterprise on the server but we are unsure if the virtual drives will be visible on the server after the installation of the OS or is there other tasks we must do to make them visible

Thanks

Tony

Hi,

first have a good Backup.

Then shutdown the Host, disconnect the FC until everything is installed including the MPIO configuration.

Now attach FC take the Disks online and everything should be fine.


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