SAN iQ upgrade to 9.0 using Linux

Hi all.

We've decided to upgrade our LeftHand equipment to last version. We've followed steps and upgraded sucessfully CMC into Linux environment.

After, a couple of hours, all files required (4GB) have been downloaded, but when we try to continue with next step, CMC send us a message indicating that it's necessary have
· P4000 VSS Provider version
· P4000 DSM for MPIO version
· P4000 Command-Line Interface (CLI) version

Files for these versions are Windows_API_CLI_Installer_8.1.0.327.exe and Windows_Solution_Pack_Installer_8.1.0.63.exe. As you can see they are based on Windows and my question is: How can I installed this software using pure Linux? Is it necessary to install these two files before upgrading our Lefthand equipment? Does CMC install whatever it's necessary?

Thanks and best regards.

Re: SAN iQ upgrade to 9.0 using Linux

It is just telling you that once you upgrade to the latest SAN/iQ you should upgrade the VSS provider for Windows, DSM for MPIO, and CLI to the latest.

If you aren't using those tools (ie: Linux, or VMware etc) you can ignore those warnings.

Thank you so much, We've done it and everything was OK.

Impressive LeftHand upgrade process!!!
