HP9000 server N class

Would like to direct connect via a5158a fc hba to LSI E2400. Where do I go to make sure that we have the latest drivers for the card? LSI show that this is an approved config. where can I go to see if HP approves this config.

For the latest driver of the card go to:
http://www.software.hp.com/cgi-bin/swdepot_parser.cgi/cgi/displayProducts.pl?group_type=search&group_name=a5158a
Choose 11i or 11.0
I don't know of a web site that would show whether or not HP supports that config.

Re: HP9000 server N class


The latest version of the driver which we use on our N classes is;

A5158A B.11.00.05 HP PCI Tachyon TL Fibre Channel

And the patches for it;

# PHKL_21834 B.11.00.AA Fibre Channel Mass Storage Driver Patch
And the latest LVM patches to go with it will also be needed;
# PHCO_20054 1.0 LVM commands cumulative patch
# PHCO_21630 1.0 LVM commands cumulative patch

We use all these on our servers and no problems.

As for your external disk array, I dont even know what it is. But its external to the HP. As long as you use the above driver and patches HP will support that - any problems with the disk array and you will need to contact them for support issues - not HP. For our EMC's HP support the latest drivers&patches, EMC are the ones we talk to about if its supported on HP and what patches/driver version they require.

Re: HP9000 server N class

Looks like the latest driver is :

product #: A5158A
version: B.11.00.06
platform: Workstation/Server
operating
system: HP-UX11.00

As for patches:

PHKL_23939: s700_800 11.00 Fibre Channel Mass Storage Driver Patch
PHSS_23996: s700_800 11.00 Tachyon TL Fibre Channel Driver Patch

and probably would want to load the latest LVM patchs.
