DS-KZPCC-CE controller

Hi
I got a new raid controller which is called DS-KZPCC-CE.
I have DS20E alpha server with tru64 unix v5.1.
I red in one of a website about this controller and I found this controller is supported with Tru64 UNIX V5.1 with Patch Kit 4.
what does it mean WITH PATTCH KIT 4.
How can I check whether my operating system (Tru64 UNIX V5.1) has a Patch Kit 4 or has not?
Could anyone give me the steps of Raid configuration for this controller?
bye

Re: DS-KZPCC-CE controller

No, you should be able to use the ROM based utility (SMOR) to configure the array. Please read the User Guide.


Access to patches is now limited to those who have paid for software updates.

Re: DS-KZPCC-CE controller

Although, you may find some patches here:

ftp://ftp.hp.com.au/pub/patches/unix/

If you really are running V5.1 (I've yet to see the output of the commands Steven requested), as opposed to V5.1A or V5.1B, then patch kit 6 for that is here:

ftp://ftp.hp.com.au/pub/patches/unix/v5.1/t64v51b20as0006-20030210.tar

Re: DS-KZPCC-CE controller

Hi,

OK, so that really is V5.1.

You can find patch kit 4 here:

ftp://ftp.hp.com.au/pub/patches/unix/v5.1/t64v51b18as0004-20011114.tar

although there's no reason not to install patch kit 6 that I posted the link to previously.

To install, extract the patch bundle ( tar xvf )and follow the instructions therein - usually run dupatch.

Regards,

Rob

Re: DS-KZPCC-CE controller

Hi Rob
I want to install Patch kit 4 so that do I need to install TruCluster software kit before installing batch kit 4.
Which website can I download TruCluster software kit?
After downloading this file how can I install it?
bye.

I don't believe you can download TruCluster.

You would have to purchase it from HP - and I doubt that you'll be able to obtain such an old version.

Hi Rob
It is necessary to install TruCluster software kit before installing batch kit 4 or it not needed.

Re: DS-KZPCC-CE controller

No, you don't have to install TruCluster before installing patch kit 4.

But if you do subsequently install TruCluster, then you would have to reinstall the patch kit, in order to patch the cluster components.

Re: DS-KZPCC-CE controller

Hi Rob.
I have just finished installing Tru64 unis v5.1.
I chose all software and all options during installation steps.
after I completed installing Unix, I set up the controller (DS-KZPCC-CE).
So that do you think that I should create BaseLine before going further with patch kit 4 instillation.
bye.
