I need to use a hp p2000 SAN storage which is connected to a HP Dl580 G7 server(with Fiber Channel) as a data archive.
the hp p2000 is not recognized in ESX
the scenario is to mount this storage in open-suse which is installed on the ESX as a machine.
the fiber channel lights on the server card are blinking with the red and orange light even when I plug out the fiber cable.
the storage version is (TS240P004).
I don not know anything about this VAAI which I see on the web.
kindly please guide me through this .

How you zone depends on if you have a B- or a C-series SAN switch. If you don't have a SAN switch you don't need to zone, but you need to change the setting of the ports (on both P2000 and on the server).
To present a disk you create a map and allow the DL580 to see the volume you've created in the P2000.
Do you also have a HP_HUS156030VLS600 DISK (check in SMU)?
Firmware upgrades are done in the SMU(the web interface of the P2000) too.
