MSA 1000 Configuration

Hi All,

I have a DL 580 server with the OS Linux AS-4 (64 bit). Now I like to configure a MSA 1000 tape Array with the server. Can anyone guide me how to configure????

Re: MSA 1000 Configuration

Shalom,

You install smart start PSP for 64 bit Linux. The cpqacu utility (stands for Compaq Array Configuration Utility) after installation permits web based configuration of the MSA-1000.

That permits you to set up raid groups and such.

It is really hard to find this gigantic download.

Your server shipped with a copy of this CD/DVD and that would be reasonable to use. Many of the shipped versions of cpqacu don't work right. Plan some time to work this this.

Re: MSA 1000 Configuration

The MSA-1000 is a disk storage system, not tape. You can use the ACU utility that is included in the ProLiant Support Pack (PSP) or download the CD image for configuring the storage system.

latest PSP for RHEL4 x86_64

Re: MSA 1000 Configuration

You shouldn't need the whole PSP, just the array management tools. If you install the whole PSP it will replace some of the standard distribution drivers with HP's versions, which you may not want.
