Mirror Raid 10 NasserversOpen in a New Window

Hi, I'm new here and new with HPservers.

We bought ourselves 2 Nas storages storeEasy 1000 with 16 TB diskvolume  (8x 2TB) twice.  Now we want to be secured that, in case of crashes, we won't have data loss.

So, our question is: What is the best way of mirroring those 2 servers.

We thought about raid 10 on both machines and then mirror both machines. (and how do you do this?)

But is that the best way, or are there any other options. 




StoreEasy 1440 deduplication problemOpen in a New Window

I have a StoreEasy 1440 NAS used for backup. Deduplication is enabled.

I need to free space and I deleted more than 1 TB of data, but the free space increaded by less than 1 MegaByte (yes, MegaByte),

I realize that part of the files I deleted can be duplicated, but I can't believe that the free space increased by less that 1 MB.

I presume that something is wrong, in the storage or (probably) in the confnguration.

How can I troubleashoot and solve this problem?

I have an HP StoreEasy 1440 NAS used as a repository for backup.

Deduplication is enabled but I need to better understand the way it works and the way I can control how deduplication works.

Where can I locate detailed documentation about deduplication on StoreEasy 1440?

Updating StoreEasy 1440: treasure huntOpen in a New Window

About one year ago I installed a StoreEasy 1440 storagwe based on Windows Storage Server 2012 R2.

I did not perform any update.

I went to the HPE software and driver page and downloaded the "* RECOMMENDED * HPE StoreEasy Storage Service Release for Windows Storage Server 2012R2" version 2016.01.5.

While attempting to install it I got a message saying that a previous version was requested. I downloaded and installed the previous version but it requires a previous version. I attempted to download all the previous version but I am unable to locate them.

Is there a first version I can start from?

Where can I download it?

Reinstalling a StoreEasy 1440 NASOpen in a New Window

I have 2 StoreEasy 1440 NAS based on Windows Server 2012.

They work fine by now.

I need to ensure I can resinstall them in case of possible problems.

I have a DVD whose title is "HP StoreEasy 1000/3000 Storage and HP 3PAR StoreServ File Controller - Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 Standsrd (2CPU/2VM) System Recovery DVD verskion SWX4.00.0a".

In case of need can I just boot from the DVD and reinstall from scratch my NAS?

Do I need any additional tool?

Is there any newer version available?

Where can I locate the up-to-date administrator's manual?




Ibrix X9720 ver 5.3.2BOpen in a New Window

Hi to all.

I have to reinstall from scratch an Ibrix X9720 with 3 nodes which was shipped with version 5.3.2B, but unfortunately

I don't have the right documentation.

Can you please help me to find it or a suitable best practice?

Should not it be possible, where can I download version 4.0 ISO, for which I have documentation, but not firmware matrix?

Best regards and many thanks in advance.

IBRIX SpaceOver AlertOpen in a New Window


Wondering if you can change at what level the SpaceOver message is triggered at on a segment utilisation.

Currently it changes from "OK" to "SpaceOver" at 90% segment utilisation. Wanting to change that trigger to 95%

I know this adds a risk but these segments have static database volumes that will be fixed to about 91% of the segment size.

Current Segment size is 1.6TB if that helps.



Performance Calculations / statistics of Store Easy 1440.Open in a New Window

I am chasing a review of performance capability of HP's 1440 configured with a 10GB BaseT ethernet addapter. 


I am looking for some result for a lometer test or real world testing that has been completed either by a third party or HP.


I need to get some level of confidence that the 1440 will do the job, but have only been able to find PC Mag test on the 1430....


Does anyone have any data or comment about what they have been able to achive in transfer rate for I/O (lometer if possible) with the 1440 models and the relevent spec's used.
