Hi all..

The configuration is EVA4400 direct attach to RX6600 server using Single FC HBA card dual port(HP FC2243 4Gb PCL-X 2.0 DC HBA).

I'm geeting a failed during Intallation EVA Command View using EVA Smart Start v3.1 on RX6600.
The message is "The Software can not be Installed in this Server because mising prerequisites, Please install on another server"

I've installed Framework.Net v2.. So I don't know, What is the other missing prequisite..?
Integrity server is compatible as EVA Management Server right..?

Please help me & need ur advise...

Many Thanks,
Piya

hi,

the quickspecs do not mention ia64 as supported , they state :-

Command View EVA will run on any general purpose server (including c-class and p-class blades) or dedicated management server
that meets the following hardware requirements:

X86 and x64 architectures are supported
1.26Ghz processor (minimum)
2 GB memory (minimum)
Disk Space Requirements:
200 MB for HP Command View EVA installation
2 GB for HP Command View EVA log files
10 MB for each managed array
350 MB for HP Replication Solutions Manager
Additional 300-400 MB for HP Replication Solutions Manager installation to accommodate log and database growth
10/100 Mbps for RSM server to RSM host agent connectivity

Hi Mark..

Yes, I've already read the quickspec..

But last year, I did a setup using rx2660 Windows 2003 IA64 and direct attach to EVA4400 starter kit, Everything is oke..

So It's confusing for me. If It's not compatible why last year I configured it successfully..?

Thx

Hello Piya,

IA64 is definetly not supported for CV installation. But you can attach a EVA without problems to an IA64 application server. Take a look at the requirements posted by mark above.

What did you configures last year? A running CV on a EVA. How did you do that. AFAIK was CV never released for IA64.

Hi Patrick..

So if EVA Command View can not be installed on Windows IA64, Is there another alternatif..?

Right now, I do a demo/POC on the customer using only 1 RX6600 server & 1 EVA4400 starter kit..

Is it posible launch EVA Command View from WOCP even I've not installed any EVA Command View on RX6600..?

Thx

Hello Piya,

you can use the Command View ABM (array based management) version. In this case you install CV on the WOCP. But there are two nasty restrictions with ABM:

- No CA
- only management of one EVA

ABM could be a solution for your problem, if your customer never wants to use CA and he never wants to administrate two or more EVAs from one single point of administration.

Patrick

Patrick..

What do you mean by ABM..? It's mean launch EVA Command View from WOCP..? When launch Command View from EVA, It's asked me to enter IP Address or Hostname..

So Which IP address I must enter into the field..? IP Address RX6600 or Defaut IP Address WOCP (192.168.0.1)..?

I've already tried it, but from the Internet Explorer "The Page can not be displayed"

So How to install CV on WOCP..?

Many Thx

Hi,

you can install CV on the management module. In this case you need no server to manage you EVA. Just use a browser.

http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=CommandViewEVA9.1

Regarding the installation please take a close look into the "HP StorageWorks Command View EVA
installation guide" starting at page 23.
