3PAR add disksOpen in a New Window

I have one 3par 7200 with 14 hard disks. I want to add 6 new disks. In manual (HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage Installation Guide page 89 )  i find that i enter the license and then install the new disks and thats all, the system add the disks without any other command.

 

Adding Disk Drives
There are five processes for adding hard drives:
• Checking initial status
• Inserting hard drives
• Checking status
• Checking progress
• Completing the upgrade

 

In forums i read some other processes.

What is the correct way to install the new hard disks ???j

login failed when I configure a new 3par (OOTB)Open in a New Window

I have a 4 node 8400, its OS is 3.2.2.
It is a new one and I need install and configure it.
After input 'console' when the system startup, the system wait for around 30 seconds and displayed 'login time out'. There is no password input step.

I've tried every 4 nodes and reboot the whole 3par 8400, nothing changed.

Is this a product issue?

Problem installing Microsoft KB hotfix needed before 3PAR upgradeOpen in a New Window

Hi

 

We're in the process of planning a OS upgrade on our 3PAR SAN. I have been sent a "HPE 3PAR OS Upgrade Preparation Guide" listing the pre-upgrade checks needed to be done before the upgrade.

Among other things there is a list of recommended Microsoft KB's which needs to be installed before the upgrade on the Windows hosts to avoid any post-upgrade problems.

For Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 KB2754704 and KB2821052 is listed as neede. The hotfix for KB2754704 installs without any problem but the hotfix for KB2821052 tells me that it is "Not applicable" for two of our servers.

I have of course checked that it has not already been installed using the command "dism /online /get-packages | findstr KB2821052" which returns nothing which means that the KB is not installed.

Anyone here that have experienced a similar problem?

It could be that the KB has been superceded by another KB, but I can't find any information indicating that.

Best regards,

Jesper

STIG for 3PAR - Delete Default Accounts?Open in a New Window

Come to find out that there is a STIG for 3PAR storage arrays that pretty much directs that you shut off the service processor, only turn it on to use it to patch the array, then shut it back off again. Also, it has you deleting 3paredit, 3parbrowse, and 3parservice users and sets the 3parsvc password to a new random value.

Like most STIG-related items, this just....feels....wrong. Can you even re-attach to the storage array if you delete the 3parservice account from the array?

Thanks,

Joe
