MSL6060 with E1200's to a Wintel with QLogic HBA's

Hello

Somehow I've managed to land myself with the task of trying to get a wintel system with 2 x Qlogic hba cards connected through to 2 x E1200 cards in an MSL6060 library. I'm a unix admin and have setup corresponding N-classes without trouble however I'm not a wintel admin. So, where do I start please? I've looked up documentation on the web and have so far found a QLogic user guide which suggests to me I'll find the WWN Port and Node information from the BIOS. If anyone has a step by step guide for a unix admin to wintel I'd be very grateful

Oh I forgot to mention, it's all connected up ok (I'm told) but need to setup the mapping to the Qlogic cards through the E1200 GUI....

Thanks again!

well best to have the manuals to hand so here's the e1200 user guide :-

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpg29075/lpg29075.pdf?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

and config overview for msl6000 + e1200 nsr's :-

i'm not a windows admin either but they seem to reboot to do everything so that should find your devices when you've done the mapping ! :-)

> reboot to do everything

Maybe you should upgrade your Windows 98 / Windows NT system to Windows 2003 which has a quite competent hot-plug implementation ;-)

The adapter's WWNN/WWPN values can be found without downtime if the system management home page has been installed - look for a green icon named "HP System Management Homepage" on the desktop, or just browse to:
https://server:2381/

Once you have logged in with Windows credentials - click the 'Exteral Storage Connections' link.

Thanks for the links to the docs but the information was indeed found from the https://[hostname]:2381 URL under External Storage.

Many thanks.

One more question on this subject, does anyone know where I can get the Host ID (in hex) for the wintel system, maybe again from the SMH pages?

Thanks

HI

ipconfig/all in a dos prompt should give you the host id in hex.

What do you mean by "host id"?
