IBM FastT product and tru64

Has anyone successfully directed connected IBMs FastT products directly to a TRU64 environment? We have an ES40, tru64 5.1b, two kgpsa-da HBAs direct attached to a FastT 900 storage array. Disks are allocated and can be 'seen' on the es40, but when we try to disklabel then, it never completes. we've let it run as long as 12 hours....any insight would be appreciated. thanks.

I've just wondered why you have not checked support status prior to connecting the equipment. Ask IBM if they certified the hardware for Alpha/Tru64 and what version is necessary on both sides...

You may try
dd if= of=/dev/null

dd if=/dev/zero of=

but, in essence, no idea ;-(.

Hi,

According this page:
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/search.wss?rs=519&tc=HW26Q&dc=D400&dtm

they don't offer support for Tru64.

greetings,

Michael
