Re: MSL6030 Issue

Hello Mark,
Be clear on your question. I can't understand this line,
"but server without rebooting is when MSL reboot.. N/H Display"..

your setup (direct connectiviy) is not supported by HP. Any FC storage products should be connect through switch only.

Anyway, pls come back with your question clearly.

Re: MSL6030 Issue

Mark..,

What I understood from you is,
While the server is up & runnig
================================
* If you are rebooting the MSL, the server shows the devices as NO_HW

* After rebooting the NSR (Router)only, the device status changes to CLAIMED.

If this is right , i can go ahead with following,

It seems to be your NSR Map is not getting updated properly. What is the Discovery mode set. Is it Manual or Automatic. set Discovery Mode to "Automatic" & check it.

Which Map you are using..? If you want the map to be built dynamically with discovered devices , use "Auto Assigned Map". Note: You can't edit the Auto Assigned Maps.

Otherwise use Port 0 Device Map. HP strictly recommends not to use Indexed Map, rather you can use Port 0 Device Map.

Re: MSL6030 Issue

Mark,

An MSL liberary can either be directly SCSI connected to a server or through the NSR router to a SAN switch.

More than 1 NSR can be present too, for instance each Ultrium3 drive should have it's own dedicated Ultra320 controller or NSR router.

best regards,
Kurt
