HP StorageWorks e1200-320 cabling issue

Hi, am having a problem with my device - HP StorageWorks MSL6000, am unable to get the device to be visible. Am not using FC all i have is
1x HP storageworks e1200-320 card and two cables,
it worked fine previously when it was connected to the controller but now i installed a card and its just not visible, i suppose my cabling might be wrong.

Re: HP StorageWorks e1200-320 cabling issue

I do not understand this: "Am not using FC"... the e1200-320 is an NSR, an SCSI to FC converter. If you are not going to use FC, then why put a NSR on the library?

The drives connected to the NSR are accesible through fiber channel. And you need to configure the mapping on the NSR web interface.

The SCSI cabling is done going from one NSR port to a drive, and finishing with a terminator.

Port on the NSR - bottom port on library controller - top port on library controller - top port on drive - terminator on bottom port on drive.

The other port on NSR - top port on drive - terminator on bottom port on drive.

Re: HP StorageWorks e1200-320 cabling issue

I got same problem,
I read manual about e1200-320 4Gb Fibre Channel Interface Card. I saw the defaulr IP of Ethernet interface is 1.1.1.1/24, i put my computer ip is 1.1.1.2/24 and connect Ethernet cable to e1200-320, but i cannot access to e1200-320 by using http://1.1.1.1 , i cannot ping to 1.1.1.1 too,

I try to use serial console to e1200-320 but i cannot access too.

Does my e1200-320 is damage ?

Default IP is using DHCP.

What serial speed did you use?

Hope this helps!

Re: HP StorageWorks e1200-320 cabling issue

Regarding the cables:

- FC cable into FC port
- NSR port 1 -> lib ctrl -> drive 1 -> termination
- NSR port 2 -> drive 2 -> termination

Hope this helps!
