Smart Array 500 G2 attached to 2 DL580 G2 Servers

Hello,
I have two HP Proliant DL 580G2 attached to HP Storage Works Modular Smart Array 500 G2 ,the two servers can’t locate the storage Hard disk on the same time.

Is there any additional configuration in order to enable the exact storage portions on the two servers .

regards

Hi,

Question about the smart 500 G2.

Doe you use 2 controller or yust one.
If i am not mistaken, you need for a cluster invironment 2 controller and 2 seperated connectors in the back (each have 2 ports).

If only one is used, the first server connecting to the array is granted to access the array.

What OS are you running?

Typically, you can not access the same lun on multiple serversd unless they are in a cluster configuration. Even then you are limited depending upon the OS and type of cluster you are running.
