If you're in a hurry here, call in an organization that specializes in performing OpenVMS and FC SAN configurations.

 

As a starting point, please have your team upgrade this OpenVMS Alpha configuration to V7.3-2 and preferably to a more recent release than V7.3-2, and then load the current FC SAN patches and the current UPDATE patches.  

 

The FC SAN interfaces in older releases are comparatively unstable, and there are various known bugs.

 

I'd then Google for and read through the available FC SAN configuration documentation for OpenVMS Alpha and then the documentation for the particular storage controller involved, XP1000, MSA1500, etc., as this sequence has been documented in some detail, and it's rather more than can be included in a forum posting reply.  (FC SANs aren't exactly user-friendly, which means there's a pile of documentation.)
