we have an APC UPS and a Vmware inrastructure with Vcenter 6.0 and a MSA P2000 G3.
The virtualized inrastructure is graceully shutdown using PowerChute, but i have no way to send a shutdown command to the MSA with "some" delay ie: shutdown both (t delay).
I want to do disk firmware. There are different disks in array.
I download firmware *.fla and it is easy do firmware upgrade via SMU/browser/ (check disks and point fla and upgrade)
but for others disk I've downloaded file which is exe. HPE instrucion to upgrade firmware:
1. Does this Flash program knows to which disk make firmware upgrade (there are different in storage and disk firmware should do firmware upgrade only to 3 disks.
2. There are option to extract this exe firmware file /but there are not fla files if I extract/. There is amoung others a *.lod file which I think is firmware file. Can I point him via SMU /browser/ and upgrade? /Here I can option to check to which disk firmware have to be affected..
Or maybe in method 1.
4. Follow onscreen instructions. (adres IP, username passwords) there will be option to check these 3 disks?
Recently I've been getting these errors occasionaly from one specific drive on our P2000. It seems to only appear during a vdisk scrub.
A4175 2016-11-21 07:32:51 58 INFORMATIONAL An event was reported by a disk drive. (disk: channel: 0, ID: 5, SN: JZXXB3VJ, enclosure: 1, slot: 6)(Key,Code,Qual:0x3,0x11,0x0)(CDB:Rd 000000cf 0001)(Info:0x000000CF)(CmdSpc:0x0, FRU:0x0, SnsKeySpc:0x4D)(Medium Error, unrecovered read error)
This morning I encountered a lot of these
A4153 2016-11-21 07:00:19 58 INFORMATIONAL An event was reported by a disk drive. (disk: channel: 0, ID: 5, SN: JZXXB3VJ, enclosure: 1, slot: 6)(Key,Code,Qual:0x3,0x11,0x0)(CDB:Rd 000000cf 0001)(Info:0x000000CF)(CmdSpc:0x0, FRU:0x0, SnsKeySpc:0x4D)(Medium Error, unrecovered read error)
The drive in slot 6 has been replace on July of this year.
The events only occur as INFORMATIONAL and the disk scrub event ID that followed all these events was
A4176 2016-11-21 07:32:51 207 INFORMATIONAL Vdisk scrub completed, no errors found. (Vdisk: vd01, SN: 00c0ff12eec900000ddfbb4e00000000).
Do you have any idea what could that mean? Is this an indication of a failing drive?
I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this little annoyance.
SPOCK has a note with for MSA 1040 & 2040 iSCSI configurations with vSphere that "Direct Connect is not supported." Why is this? It looks to be supported for all the other OS options - why not vSphere?
Here are a couple of examples:
I have a HP MSA P2000, and today one disk has failed, and one of the global spares has replace it, becoming in part of the vdisk and rebuilding de data. I have 5 global spares (now 4).
What is the best way to follow now? Can I move the rebuilded disk to the bay of the failed disk? or maybe is not recommended to move disks between bays? My intention is to replace the failed disk by a new one, and put all disks of the same vdisk together in the enclosure, and also the global spares, but I don´t know if it´s a good practice.
Thanks in advance
I'm trying to attach a LUN from a MSA 2000 G3 FC to a Windows 2016 Cluster. The LUN is seen on the server itself, no problem there. But as soon as I try to add it in the Failover Cluster Manager under Storage / Disk I'm getting the error "No disks suitable for cluster disks where found". But the enclosures where shown under Enclosures.
What have i made wrong or is the msa P2000 G3 FC not supportet anymore for Windows 2016 cluster?
I have MSA2040 storage.
We have this HP p2000 MSA iSCCI storage array. Recently we are not able to logon to both sp. We tried using Web, putty, and mini-usb but no help. Authentication seems to work because if we try a wrong password it reject. But when use correct password we can not get through pass the console prompt. It keeps at the prompt. Please help us.
Thank you in advance.
The Site I support is having issues with is backup storage space. In the process of fixing this I found HP P2000 Gen 3 MSA. When I started to look for compatible drives I saw that the connection to the backplane is off set to let and not in the middle as most other SATA drives I have. So, I am just trying to find out which drives are compatible taht I can order.
Can somebody tell me the MTBF and MTTR for the MSA 2040 storage or is this specified in any official document?
Our company use MSA 2012 fc. This is realy old product, but it still work. We bay refurbished Hard Drive. And today I replaced leftover HDD and I see in WEB Interface another Virtual Disks like: "cctv3-vdisk2", "cctv3-vdisk3" and "vd01".
Now, I have a question. If I replaced under warranty my HDD, you can sell our information to other companies? After the recovery disk you are not are formatting it?
hi, im doing the setup of a P2000G3 on a C7000G2 Enclosure.
the P2000G3 is not allowing any traffic and will block IO IF a VDISK is set to owner A .
if i remove phisicaly Owner B from the enclosure , Data will continue to flow and i will see on the management utility
Current Owner A
Preferred Owner B
if with the owner B remove i switch preffered to Owner A , data will stop passing... but it was already to owner A when fail over occured ! if i switch preffered To owner B even if slot of Owner B is emtpy it work again !
i swapped the P2000g3 enclosure for a spair one, i tested 4x differents P2000g3 sas controllers.
i tester in a proliant dl385g7 server outside the c7000 environnement to test.
its all fresh install last firmware and last updates windows server 2012 r2.
i never seen such a issue i cant fix my self for over 14 days now.
plz helppp :(
Does anyone have the P2000 G3 iSCSI Performance Tool. I've been looking for a link for weeks.
I hope someone can help.
Hello, we had shutdown a storage msa2040 and after power on again these message appear and controller "A" does not work
killed partner controller. (reason: Non volatile device flush or restore failure)
What can be the problem?
i have a server in production = C7000G2 + Bl460g6 x3 + P712m + P2000g3 SAS
running server 2012 r2,
everything work perfectly.
i bought used the exact same parts, to build another setup similar,
all part as been upgraded to last firmware and drivers alone with server 2012 r2 up to date.
here the bug :
IF Vdisk owner is A nothing is working, the servers hang with this error on each :
if i switch to owner B , everything is working back again..
if i shutdown the unit and remove controller B and reboot, i will have in the GUI
Vdisk Current owner A and preferred owner B . data will flow perfectly :) if switch the preferred owner to A when Vdisk is already attribuated to A anyway as B is not there, the data will stop flowing and will get error again !!!
here what i tested :
swaped with 6x P2000g3 sas controllers i had on shelf, 2 P2000g3 enclosures , different SFF-8088 cabling, Dl385G7 fresh install with 2012 r2 and 2016 with HBA 221 to avoid using the C7000G2 and the switchs, its always the same storry.
im using last version in the P2000g3 = TS252P001
i also tried with 2 old version controller = TS240 . its always the same thing.
i tried with D2700 enclosure added to test 2 2.5'' disk, tried NRAID with a single disk,
ITS ALWAYS THE SAME BUGGG !!!
if the Preffered owner is A im done.
i worked 14 days triying everything , i cant sleep , i never face such issue.
your help will be more than appreciated. thx...

I'm facing this challenge at my work: data replication between a HP MSA2040 and a IBM Storwise v3700 over a 100Mb WAN to our secondary site.
In the MSA we have our VMware and Oracle VM environment.
Any ideas on how to accomplish this?
You need to replace the 12 discs 1 Tb on 2 Tb in HP P2000 G3 (Raid 6 11 +1 hot spare ).
Tell me how to do it properly.
