HP StorageWorks MSA2000

Hi,

I have this NAS in client office. But i don't know how to assign space from this NAS to server.

Any guide for manage this storage? Or perhaps tutorial in pdf?

Thank you.

Re: HP StorageWorks MSA2000

The MSA2000 series (which model do you have?) is a "block-server" providing SCSI LUNs via Fibre Channel, iSCSI or SAS (Serial Attached SCSI). They cannot do NAS functions (= network file sharing). For this you need an additional server.

Manuals can be found at:

or for the latest:

Yes, i know it's not like file sharing. How to use NAS actually? As far as i know it like SAN. Do it have management utility,some sort of software?

Thank you.

Re: HP StorageWorks MSA2000

It *IS* a SAN storage array!
And I have told you that you need an extra server to turn the block-serving into file-serving.

Of course it has a management utility, but there are differences between different models and interconnects.
