MSA 2000, changed management subnet, can no longer connect to management website or ping IPOpen in a New Window

Pretty much as this posts subject.

The management ports IP address has been left the same but I changed the subnet from to and now I can no longer ping the IP address of the management port or access the web management (the clients I'm trying to manage it from connected to it fine in the past and their IP settings are correct).

My VMware cluster still connects to the SAN ports fine though.

Am I up s**t creek and now need to restarts the controllers to get the IP management back ?, thanks.

Need to Update Firmware on Brocade 4/12 SAN SwitchOpen in a New Window

Hi, I need to get firmware upgraded on 4 brocade 4/12 SAN switches for HP c-Class enclosures. The firmware on it at the moment is 5.3.0D. Is there somewhere that provides upgrade paths and also a time period for each upgrade. I have read that this should not require downtime if done one switch at a time. I just want to get more information on this if someone could point me in the right direction - thanks.


unable to delete files on HP Data DriveOpen in a New Window



I've been using HP Data drive for a while now and was surprised to get a "disc full" error. It seems I have a lot of files in the recycle bin that clutter my HP Drive.



The problem is, I can't seem to delete some of the files because they are too big! Trying to empty the bin or deleting them directly in the web interface results in "Error 413: Request Entity too large". 


I have transfered everything I needed out of the drive but I haven't found a way to format or wipe the disk...


Any help is appreciated

Configuring Dell PowerVault with HP SC11XeOpen in a New Window



I'm new to the forums and hoping someone could shed some light on what I'm trying to do here. I'm also fairly new to servers and I'm honestly not sure if this will even work, but I thought I'd check here before giving up!


I am looking to repurpose an old Dell PowerEdge 2950 server and a Dell PowerVault 220s. The only cards I have that will interface with the PV are HP SC11Xe's. 


I have installed the cards in the server, and my PV disks show during the boot process, but I cannot get into the SC11Xe BIOS to reconfigure them. Do you have any advice for me here?

not original productOpen in a New Window


Product is not original, and not actual size,

supplier reprogram the controller chip that manages the memory.  They use special software to update the firmware, so that these drives now think they have more memory than they actually do.

Actual size after test is only 8GB not 1TB,

Most Reliable and Secure Cloud Storage Service?Open in a New Window

Hello. I used to use Dropbox, but I heard that their security policy is much more lax than I was led to believe. Apparently their employees have basically unlimited access to your files.

The issue is that I'm a lawyer, and so I have an obligation to keep client files confidential. I'm not confident that Dropbox can meet my needs, so does anyone know of a similar cloud service that takes privacy seriously? I heard CloudBacko was good, but I wanted some suggestions.

SMART overly sensitive on dropping my drivesOpen in a New Window

I made a critical error and rebooted some of my servers. Now all of these servers are failing out all of their samsung 840 evos (yes not hp drives). 


Is there some way to make a p420i controller less sensative to failure? The drives seem to operate just fine outside of the enterprise environment.


And please dont respond with "these are supported drives" rhetoric.
