HP SAN 4/32 - HP Serial and "Defaults" Not Allowing Console LoginOpen in a New Window


I purchased a SAN 4/32 HP switch a couple of months ago, and have been having trouble setting it up. 

I have a Qlogic board installed on the server, but the switch still needs configuration.

The seller stated that the switch has been reset to factory defaults, and that a true HP serial cable should allow me to log in. 

I've looked at another forum post to see that I could try via Telnet (23 port), but that doesn't work. Also, attaching the Link doesn't result in any IP on my network. 

So, how can I get into this dang console with this HP serial to RJ45 on my Windows 10 laptop with Putty?

Can I emulate the port as serial? If so, what is the designation for the RJ45 PCI controller port (e.g. "COM 1" equivalent)?

Thanks in advance,
Tyler Scafidi

Command VIew in a VMOpen in a New Window

Hello, recently we moved our EVA 6400 from our primary datacenter to our back office datacenter where we already had other EVA6500 managed by a pyshical server. So, I deployed a VM to manage the EVA6400 only! WELL.. following documentation, to use Command View within VM I need to configure my VM with a SCSI device.. but... when I select the "Raid HP" option I see two "Raid HP" not only one. I believe it means both EVA. But how do I know which is which ?! (see attachment)

EVA showing modules not installed in Drive EnclosuresOpen in a New Window

We have an EVA 4400 that appears to be telling us that the Power, Fan, and I/O modules on the A side are not installed in all but one of the Drive Enclosures.  My first thought was that we lost a PDU, but everything is powered on and the power and fan lights are all green.  I'm not familiar with EVA (IBM and NetApp) and I am not at the site, so I'm dealing with some photos of what it looks like and the statuses in the management app that I'm looking at for the first time.

My currently theory is that there was some sort of power blip that briefly took out half of most of the enclosures and some sort of repair routine needs to run to bring them back online.  Otherwise I can't explain why it is only affecting the A side of all but one of the enclosures.

Any thoughts?  Thanks!

This is happening in both Controllers as above. There is no cables removed from the EVA array to the server HBA.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hp storageworks edge switch 2/24 Administrator password unknownOpen in a New Window

I have a couple of these units that were bought used, and the person that my company bought them from does not remember what the passwords are.

I would like to be able to log into these things but have been unable to find a way through the command line to reset these to factory settings.

I have been able to get to the "{P} SSP>" prompt by using the level-2 password and then turning PM ON and entering the password of redips. However all the commands that are now listed do not give me a clear way of reseting the unit to factory defaults.  Am I going in the complete wrong direction here to reset these units to their default values? Please help.


HP eva 4400 OK to replace ungrouped failed disk while 2nd Disk failure is reconstructingOpen in a New Window

We had a failed disk this morning in Enclosure 2, Bay 1. This HDD is now in the Ungrouped container.
When the DG started leveling, within a minute or two later a 2nd HDD failed. This is in a separate Enclosure 3, Bay 2. Data State on this is currently Reconstructing.
I know not to replace the HDD that is in the reconstructing state but what about the 1st disk that failed that is in the Ungrouped container? Can I replace that disk now or must I wait to replace both till reconstruction is complete?
I only have one DG full of 600GB 10K drives.

The DG protection level is Single (Double is requested). Once reconstruction is complete and 2nd HDD goes in to the ungrouped section, my DG should go back to Double protection, correct?
Thank you!


EVA4100 with mpx100Open in a New Window

I have an EVA4100 with mpx100. The mpx100 is using the first host port on both EVA controllers as input from the EVA. I wanted to convert the EVA to only fc, so I can connect all 4 front end ports. I took out the cables going from the mpx100 to the 2 EVA ports, installed 2 sfp's and then set the ports to fabric. Still I have problems to get link to the san switches on these ports. Is there any more reconfig I must do to get this working. I see that there is light in the sfp's on these ports.
