Configuring HP DL380 G5 Storage Server and HP StorageWorks 60 Modular Smart Array

Hi!

I have to configure DL380 G5 Storage Server and HP StorageWorks 60 Modular Smart Array.

So far I have complete installation Winodws Storage Server 2003 R2 on DL380 G5 Storage Server. Now what else should I do to make it work.

1. Should I install any driver on DL380 G5 Storage Server to be connected with the HP StorageWorks 60 Modular Smart Array?

2. Should I configure in the Windows?

3. Others..

Please be informed that I haven't use Windows Storage Server 2003 yet. Therefore, please be a bit detail.

Sincerely,

Connect the MSA60, Make sure the latest Service Release is installed which includes the PSP, then run the Smart Array Array Configuration Utility and then configure your array/logical just like any other Proliant server with a Smart Array. when your done use Disk Management to create your partition and format your new disk.

Dear Mr. Martin:

Thanks for your mail.
Indeed, I should have mentioned that this is my first server configuration.

You mean update firmware on MSA60?

If yes, could you please provide me some documents that explain the procedure of updating firmware.

You mean, I should download and run Array Configuration Utility on my Storage Server?

Dear JYP:


Thanks a lot for your nice mail.
However, still I would like to know the following:

1. Should I install msa60 firmware and the latest service release into the HP ProLiant Storage Server (SS)?

2. Nothing should be done with the MSA 60 but connect it with the SS, right?

Dear JYP

Thanks a lot for your kind help.

By the way, how can I check in the SS whether I need to update the firmware, latest service release and ACU?

How can I check whether the SS sees the disks of MSA60?

With best regards,

for Service Release you should have small icon in your SS desktop double click on and ask for details, you should see version of service release installed
i attached an screenshot example for that

Dear JYP

Thanks for your continuous support.

By the way,

How can I check the current firmware ?

Is this possible to skip updating MSA 60 firmware?

In which case?
