HPSA Cores on a virtual platform.

Hi All,

 

Just wondering if anyone knows of any HP documentation regarding running HPSA Cores on virtual hardware (ESX specifically). I'm putting a design together and theres a debate internally as to whether or not it is supported for production use.

 

Has anyone got a link/doc I can refer too?

 

Thanks,

 

Brad

Hi Brad

 

For these type of questions it´s always handy the Supported Platforms matrix:

 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1203176/51220843002ca1c48151d8d8/SA_9.14_Support...

 

It mentions in a note:

 

"

Note 3 - SA 9.10 cores running on VMware ESX VM's are supported when specific requirements are met. For details on these requirements, please download and read the
“SA_9.10_Simple_Adv_Installation_Guide” on the http://h20230.www2.hp.com/selfsolve/manuals website.

"

 

So, it´s possible, have a look at the Simple/Advancaed Install guide for more details.

 

Regards

HP Support

Re: HPSA Cores on a virtual platform.

Installing on a vm is perfectly fine, just be careful of replicating it.

 

Cloning a system with HPSA installed can be tricky.

 

Copying the vm is fine as a backup, but cloning removes some vital OS elements that are tied into the HPSA installation.

 

We are attempting to work throught this very issue of cloning having broken our install.

Unix, the other white meat.
