4250ES Transfer speed

Hello,

We have a number of Proliant 8000 servers. They are all configured identically. In insight manager the disks connected to the 4250es array card are register for the most part at "Ultra 20MTS" however on two of the 8000s the disks on the 4250es cards are registered at "Fast 10MTS".

All of the disks in all of the servers are Ultra3.

Working with one of the "10 MS" servers I have updated the system boos, and the array boos. NT has the latest drivers. Insight has the latest management agents.

I would of thought that the 4250es would be able to run the disks at Ultra2 40MTS, but at the very least why would these two 8000 servers only be at 10MTS when identical servers are at 20MTS.

Thanks

Re: 4250ES Transfer speed

i would check your cabling..are you using the right cables? are they at least utra 2 compatible? are ALL the drives in the array at least ultra 2 speeds?
We are here for a good time, not a long time!

Re: 4250ES Transfer speed

We had something similar recently where all the drives on port 2 exhibited the same behavior. Our sysadmin mentioned something about going into the BIOS or firmware setup for the controllers. I can try to get more details from him if you can't find it.
