P4500 with SAN IQ 9 working with HP DSM 8.5?

Hello,

We want to start an upgrade from san iq 8.5 to 9.0 on the lefthand P4500 systems.

Must we upgrade the HP DSM software on all the Windows server where lefthand Luns are presented?

Or is DSM 8.5 combatible with San IQ 9.0?

 

 

P.S. This thread has been moved from Storage Area Networks (SAN) (Enterprise) to HP StoreVirtual Storage / LeftHand. - Hp Forum Moderator

Hi,

Just follow the upgrade procedure on http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=4118659&swItem=co-88864-2&prodNameId=4118664&swEnvOID=54&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0 which says...
Upgrade the release 9.0 software components in the following order:
CMC
DSM for MPIO
SAN/iQ software
VSS Provider

You're right that DSM 8.5 will work with SANiQ9.0 but to get a supported environment you should stay with the upgrade scenarios HP supplied.

Best Regards,
Eric

is it OK to install an HP NC552SFP 10Gb 2-port Ethernet Server Adapter into a P4500 LefHand SAN?

 

- I apologize, I am having hard time locating the button that allows me to start a new Post so I finally thought to click Reply and change the subject line - sorry for any inconvenience.

 

Since the P4500 LeftHand SAN is in essence a DL185 G6 server, is it OK to install an HP NC552SFP 10Gb 2-port Ethernet Server Adapter into a P4500 LefHand SAN? - would it require special Driver that is different than its driver when installed in an H DL180 G6? - if yes, may you provide a link where I may download that driver?

 

The part number for the NC552SFP is: 614203-B21 

 

I appreciate anybody's feedback
