msa30 scsi connection problem

hi expert
i have an msa30 connected to 2 windows server 2003 servers through scsi ports. i have moved the servers and maybe i have mixed the cables so the scsi cable which was connected to server 1 is now connected to server 2 and the cable wich was connected to server 2 is now connected to server 1 and the result is the volumes are not visible. can you clarify for me why? the configuration is stored on the disks or the smart array?

Re: msa30 scsi connection problem

because the msa30 with 2 SCSI ports is in effect 2 x 7 bay disk arrays, the dual port i/o module splits the bus into seperate channels.
