Relocating HP EVA4400

Hi,

 

We are planning to relocate HP EVA 4400 which has two disk enclosures.

What is the best way to pack it, do we need tp pack it as single unit or we need to separate disk enclosures and pack it?

Any document which explains all the connections and cabling of EVA4400?

 

Please advice.

 

Thanks,

Abu Hamzah

Most important:

shut the array down, do NOT just switch it off!


Lable all the cables, remove the cables, pack the components, ship them, install them in the same order with the same cables. connections.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Relocating HP EVA4400

You may do it by any ways you want, however, make sure you have a copy of the existing cabling with you - on a notebook (just for reference if reqd.) OR a photograph. Proper labling should be done to the cabling if you are planning for dismantling it... [but do not remove the drive from the enclosure :P ]. When assembling it back at the site, make sure it is cabled the same way. All the best for the activity.

Take DATA BACKUP and CONFIGURATION BACKUP before the activity.

Do we have any cabling guide or cabling layout picture of the HP EVA 4400?
