Proliant DL580G2 & RA4100 Storage Array

Can you configure 2 DL580G2 to use a RA4100 Storage array without the two server being clustered, because I can only get one to connect at a time?

This should be no problem. However, the 2 servers must not be trying to access the same LUNs within the RA4100. Each server will have its own LUNs, and you should not configure them so that both servers are trying to share the same LUN (it's not supported and you'll corrupt your data).

What you need to do is set up Selective Storage Presentation (SSP). This is what assigns LUN access rights to servers.


Check out chapter 5 in this User Guide for help.
