I have an issue with an ESXi 6.0 U3 hosts doing a PSOD. According to VMware the qLogic HBA firmware is crashing and I need to upgrade to V8.05.xx.
I can't find a download link for that version anywhere on the qLogic or HPE sites.
Can anyone point me in the right direction of the firmware?
We have an EVA 4400. I noticed that the default disk group for the EVA had 12 disks in it and there were several ungrouped disks elsewhere in the array. So, I added them to the group, but it only let me add three. So, now, it has 15 disks in the group. Apparently, it's only licensed for up to 5 TB in a disk group, so it won't let me add more. I read elsewhere in the forum that you should add disks to groups in multiples of eight. So, I'm wondering if I should have removed four of the disks to make eight? Or, do the advantages outweigh the drawbacks of not using multiples of eight? Also, could someone explain what the drawbacks are of using a group not divisible by eight? Is it a reliability issue, or does it actually slow the array down? In other words, which is a better number of disks in the group: eight, 12, or 15?
We have a shared storage SN 2S6938D039, unfortunately we can't connect to it via web, ssh, telent, so we will try to restart the Management controller via cli port, in the interface of controller cli port is wrote SR232 micro-DB9.

What can we do? I don't understand what's the problem.
Where can i find EOL or retired information on Storage Works RA450?
Need help urgently
Thanks for your help.
Good day gurus!
I am looking for an upgrade path for my Brocade FC switches to the latest supported version. The current version is:
Fabric OS (swd77)
The storage in question is equipped with 12 HDD of two different cuts: 450 GB (x4) and 600 GB (x8).
There are two Vdisks:
- the first uses four 450GB HDDs
- the second uses seven 600 GB HDDs
The latest 600 GB disk is used as Global Spare
One of the 450GB HDDs was corrupted and the system replaced it automatically with the GS.
The customer replaced the 450GB hard disk that was configured as a new GS.
I would like to restore this last disk as a member of the first vdisk and reconfigure the 600 GB disk as GS.
I don't know much about this storage and I imagine that I should expand vdisk by adding the 450 GB disk and then removing the 600 GB disk.
Is there a simpler solution?
la storage in oggetto è equipaggiata con 12 hdd di due tagli diversi: 450 GB (x4) e 600 GB (x8).
Esistono due Vdisks:
- il primo utilizza i 4 hdd da 450 GB
- il secondo utilizza 7 hdd da 600 GB
L'ultimo disco da 600 GB è utilizzato come Global Spare
Uno degli HDD da 450 GB si è guastato ed il sistema lo ha rimpiazzato automaticamente con il GS.
Il cliente ha sostituito il disco da 450 GB guasto che è stato configurato come nuovo GS.
Vorrei ripristinare quest'ultimo disco come membro del primo vdisk e riconfigurare il disco da 600 GB come GS.
Non conosco molto questo storage e pensavo che per farlo avrei dovuto espandere il vdisk aggiungendo il disco da 450 GB e successivamente rimuovere quello da 600 GB.
Esiste una soluzione più semplice?
I recently obtained a StorageWorks EVA 8100 unit from another department, which we are planning on integrating into our existing storage infrastructure that consists of 2 smaller EVA units. The problem that I have run into is that I am limited in the size of vdisk I can create (2TB limit). I do not have this issue on the evisting EVA units.
The EVA8100 is running the XCS 6.25 firmware and is being managed through CommandView 10.3. I am running CommandView on the 60-day Instant-On license while I evaluate if this particular harware will integrate effectively into our infrastructure, but do not want to deal with the expense if it will not help the issue.
Has anyone else run into this issue, and have you been able to have a vdisk created that is larger than 2047GB? I am looking to configure a vdisk of at least 20TB on this particular EVA to match with what is in use on the existng EVAs.
I have EVA6000 and old appliance server with Windows 2000 and CommandView Eva 126.96.36.199. I want to get installed license from this CommandView and install on other server. But in CommandView "View License Keys" is empty. I tried to search for *.lic files on server disks (Program Files and so on), but don't find anything.
Please help me to find me installed license.
In case array management is subject to change, and if the local HP Command View EVA Server does
By implementing this configuration in array manager of the primary site , the one that manages both EVAs all is oK,while the second site returns the following error:
SRA command 'discoverArrays' failed. SRA operations failed
I think it's a normal situation because at this time the secondary site does not manage any storage.
We are using 4400 EVA controller in our organization. Both Controller reboot frequently automatically since last weeks .Current firmware ver. of eva is 10001000.
Please help i am sharing eva logs..
I have some problem with my storage.
I'm using storage HP P6530. Today, i choose the partition to mount on vmware. The partition was convert format from ntfs to vmfs. The partition lost every data. Anđ now i want to find some important data on the old partition. How can i do to recovery data?
Is there any configurable parameter in scli which can avoid a rescan of devices when there is connection failure between the server and Storage array? The storage array is an XP array and the server has the Qlogic FC card.
So I got these switches Brocade 16Gb/28c Pwr Pk+ SAN Switch, so the things is how do I monitor the Power Pack, where do I download the software to monitor the Power Pack, o how do I use the power pack?
these features come with the power pack:
Advanced Performance Monitoring
hope your comments...Regards!
Does anyone have EOS/EOL support information for AG638A-StorageWorks M6412?
At one site, I´ve 2 DL3890 G9 with 8gb emulex HBA 2 ports crossing FC multimode fiber for to 2 FC controllers of MSA 2040 each ctrl with 2 Ports FC + 2 Eth iSCSI + web management, FC cable multimode LC -LC 50/125, now I have other center connected with singlemode fiber. ruler from center A is LC singlemode, and ruler at Center B is also LC singlemode.
Putting a SAN FC switch at each center, I must have several SFP´s multimode 8 Gbps. LC-LC to connect all HBA and MSA FC Ports at each side but to conect center A to center B I must have one SFP at each SAN switch singlemode conection LC-LC using 9/125 cables.
Centar A and Centar B are at same lan as they have a singlemode link with near 500 mts.
With brocade FC SAN switches what can you recommend to connect Center A and Center B as I have a mixed multimode and singlemode.
Any small help will be appreciated.
Recently a customer acquired an HP storage structure used. He purchased all the hardware, but not the management software.
Thanks for attention!
I have Array P6350 HP SAN and now i want to reset password for controller. Can you tell me how to do. And i dont want loss any data on SAN.
I am not sure if there is a better group for this question or not. Please forgive my limited knowledge on this subject. I am trying to get a better understanding. We have a couple of HPUX virtual machines that can move between 3 BL860 i4's. The virtual machines have virtual HBA's defined each with a unique WWN. When creating a zone the WWN is presented as a hostname (not the vm name) and WWN combination which is perfect until the vm migrates to a different host. Now the origional hostname is replaced with the new hostname which I believe breaks the connection between the SAN and the server.
I would like to find out if it is possible to define a zone that will allow the virtual machine to connect to the SAN in the case that the vm has move to a different host?
Any suggestion, documentation or help will be appreciated.
A little clarification please. Based upon an earlier support session I had with HP, I was lead to beleive that the Disk Group Allocation Level should not be above a certain percentage based upon the performance level of the disks in the group. So much so that, when using Near-line 1TB 7200 RPM FATA drives, the allocation level shouldn't go much higher than 50%-60% allocated (DG is single drive protection level, 84 drives). This seemed a bit excessive, however when we scaled back the allocation levels on our DGs (two other DGs with 15K or 10K drives) to levels less than 80% we did notice a marked improvement in performance.
I realize that fewer presentations means less I/O, but I'm looking for a best practice guide that spells this practice for me. In doing so, I'm finding many Community postings with people stating that they are at 95% Allocated and that the Allocation Level is considered only when things such as disk failure and leveling are taken into consideration. I should also point out that the hosts attached are either VMware ESXi, MSSQL clustered servers, or Oracle ASM RAC 11.2 or 12.
My question is this: Given that I don't have the benefit of Performance Advisor to check LUN and host port utilization, etc., how should I go about calculating required Allocation Levels in order to maintain low latencies? I know that without the tools this will be an in-exact science; however, any guidance is appreciated!!!
