Upgrading a HP MSA 30


Hi guys,

Hope you can help me out guys.
I've got some time ago a HP MSA 30 array, single bus scsi.
I've bought recently a brocade 200e fabric switch, and I want to know if there is any option to upgrade their back modules to Fibre Channel (4gbit could be great but any speed is fine). And, if it's possible, do you have the part number for that module?

Thanks in advance guys!
Appreciated!

There is no such option. You would have to buy an MSA1500cs controller enclosure with at least one controller and SCSI I/O module.

Argg,

A pity. I wanted to give a bit more life to it, and don't spend more money on a new array.
Anyway thanks for your answer,

Torsten.

The MSA30 is SCSI, the latest FC model is (was) the DS2500, see

Hope this helps!
