Re: i cant config my hp p2000 NIC to connect G7

You need to provide specific information. The query you have asked is missing with details.

What is the exact P2000 model?

What is the protocol of the P2000 controller host ports? are they SAS or FC or iSCSI?

What is the model of the G7 server?

What is protocol of the HBA or NIC card used in G7 server? are they SAS or FC or iSCSI?

Are you trying to connect G7 server with P2000 directly?

Please find few links which may give you some information,

Re: i cant config my hp p2000 NIC to connect G7

Still many information missing what I asked before.

You may need to modify both the Standard Boot Order and Boot Controller Order in RBSU. Make sure the SAN HBA is listed before the local disk controller.

What is the NIC/HBA that is used to boot from SAN?

What is the BIOS version of the server and HBA?

What is the Operating System installed on the local disk and on SAN?

Please provide the above information along with the questions I asked previously.

Please find the link to get information of "How to Configure Emulex HBA to Boot from SAN in VMware ESX / ESXi Environment",

https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-10015

Please find the link to get "Perform the following to enable an HP ProLiant server to boot from SAN",

http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/docs/enterprise/servers/icsp/7.4.1/webhelp/content/s_osdbuildplan_how_SANboot.html

Please find the link to get HPE Boot from SAN guide,

Re: i cant config my hp p2000 NIC to connect G7

Re: i cant config my hp p2000 NIC to connect G7

There is nothing special from Storage end. It's same like how you present volume to a host. Adding a host. Then create a volume and present it through Host ports to the Host.

Now at the Host or server you need to configure Boot from SAN at the HBA. For that you refer "HPE Boot from SAN Configuration Guide",

Re: i cant config my hp p2000 NIC to connect G7

Hello,

Your post keep stating you want to connect the P2000 to your NIC. Yet the screen shot shows a FC HBA. These two protocols do not connect without something special inbetween that may not be supported by either the P2000 array or the DL380 server.

Please describe what protocol you are trying to connect. iSCSI or FC? Remember it has to be one similiar protocol on both the array and the server for this to work correctly.

Also, which version of ESXi are you using? The P2000 is an EOL array and does not support newer versions of ESXi. The newer OS does have some features when using boot from SAN that may not be compatable with the P2000.

Cheers,
Shawn
