Some old(?) fiber channel equipment is being donated to my company and I need help identifying what exactly I have, and how to get it up and running if possible.
I have two HP rack units, each with 14 vertically oriented fiber channel drives, 146GB each drive.
On the outside of the enclosure is AD524B. I found reference that this may be known as an HP EVA 8000? Looks similar to this, but with fibre channel drives. This picture shows what the back looks like, with the EMU and IO modules A&B.
I also have a Cisco Fibre switch c9020-20k9.
Finally for a server, I have an HP Proliant DL380 G4 (no fibre card that I can see).
I would imagine at a minimum I need some fiber cables (copper type I think) to from the IO modules.
Can you help me more specifically identify this and at least point me at where to find information / documentation on how to get this going (even if only as a directly connected 'drive')?
