Connecting Fiber Channel M5314C or M5214 via HSV200-A (AD525A)

I would like to know if an HSV200-A (AD525A) connected to a M5214 or a M5314C would need additional software for setting up the RAID configuration/management. Thank you.

The M5214 is a disk enclosure for the HSV200-A (EVA 4100).

To manage the EVA you need P6000 command view:

Hope this helps!

Re: Connecting Fiber Channel M5314C or M5214 via HSV200-A (AD525A)

Thank you for your answer, I have already sent an inquiry about the price of the software/license.

 

1) Does anyone know if the M5214 enclosure needs HP-only disk drives with HP proprietary firmware?

 

I would like to be able to choose myself the kind of disk drives to put into the enclosure,

most probably a mix of native FC disks and FATA disks, therefore:

 

2) Is there any incompatibility between the after-market FC-to-SATA interposers and the HP storage enclosures?

Have a look into the EVA 4100 quickspecs for supported disks.

Noone will ensure that unsupported disks work.


Hope this helps!
