You're really not going to be able to get this information out of an MSA or P2000 storage array. At least, no historical information. You could parse the output from the SSL CLI at regular intervals, but that's not ideal. This is just a disadvantage of the platform. You may want to check with the OEM, DotHill to see if anything is available from their ...

You can download HP MSA2000 Monitoring Management Pack, msacli.exe is the part of this pack. Also you can use SNMP for monitor perfomance of HP MSA.

We have (3) HPT3500 since February 2015. We set each one up with (2) sets of drivers. One for CAD/GIS files using the HPGL2 driver and the second with just the Adobe (PS) Post Script drivers for printing from "PDF's". The HP universal multi-language driver was discouraged by our vendor.

It takes time. From the controller technology guide: When you create a RAID 1, RAID 5, or RAID 6 logical drive, the Smart Array controller must build the logical drive within the array and initialize the parity before enabling certain advanced performance techniques. Parity initialization takes several hours to complete. The time it takes depends on the ...

Your motherboard or CPU socket pins may be unhealthy. I do recommend using HP RAM for this as well. While you may have identical part numbers, many times those memory lots can be sourced from different manufacturers. Certain combinations may not be compatible. As far as obtaining firmware for your server, try harder. See that "File name"? Google it.

For that model you need to use compatible DIMM module from HP. (& latest bios) (HP supported PC3-10600E UDIMM in 1, 2, or 4GB capacities) HP List that for the G6: 4GB (256MB x 8) PC3-10600E, DIMM memory module PartNumber: 501541-001 ...

IN3T4GEZBIX is 4GB modules, have you bought 2 x 4GB additional Memory modules or single 8GB module? When you install memory, you will need to install them in a pair to corresponding memory sockets. For example, install 4GB in A1 socket and another 4GB in B1 socket. just checked HP quickspecs and maximum it can take is 16GB ( 4x4GB). On you case, either ...

some iSCSI implementations will allow you to export virtual drives onto SAS or SCSI (with appropriate hardware). and given that the 2003 box has an external SCSI connector this may not be difficult. the hardware will netboot without too much trouble (it supports pxe), but unless you are already netbooting 2003/XP boxes setting up the infrastructure to do so ...

I totally don't want to discount the rest of your question, but the path of least resistance is to replace the failed disks. When dealing with legacy equipment, there may be a temptation to devise an esoteric or clever workaround, but your immediate goal is to keep this particular hardware running in the current and stable state until you can migrate ...

Send it back as whole to HP to get it fix. Both failed, but where I work I often send unit to get repaired. They can clean it and remake them work as intended. You will get anyhow a estimate when they will receive it, more good than triing to fix thing inside of it.

I had a firewall policy rule that was causing the pingability, ICMP echo permission hidden in a group service list and restricted to certain hosts and I didn't see it. :-0 Also had an issue getting VLAN 2 connectivity to a port on the Netgear that is tagged with that VLAN ID, but that appeared to resolve with a restart of that device. (Which wasn't clear in ...

I can't find an official confirmation for this sorry but I did find one for the MSA2324sa working with an MSA70 - which was the SFF version of the MSA60 - so I'd certainly place a small wager that it'll work and probably be supported. That said like ewwhite I also hate the idea of using non-HP disks in HP storage, you don't need to look far on this site to ...

I would suggest using an D2600 unit instead of the MSA60, but it will technically work when cascaded from your MSA2324 unit. 6TB drives... 4TB disks are known to work in that enclosure, so the 6TB will likely work. I wouldn't use SATA for a JBOD expansion because (depending on your cabling choice) you'll lose the dual-port/dual-pathing that the SAN ...

Look inside your server. How many cables are connected between the RAID controller and the drive backplane? If this server previously only used the first four bays, then it's likely missing the SAS cable needed to activate the 5th and 6th bays. To support drives 5 and 6, the optional HP Mini SAS 4i 13.4 inch/0.35 m cable is required (PN ...

You're not one for the scientific method, are you? Different operating systems. Different platform (server versus workstation). Different CPU architecture. Unsupported SSD on the RAID controller. Raw SATA versus a disk connected to a RAID controller backplane. The assumption that a RAID controller is supposed to be "faster". Misconfigured settings on the ...

You shouldn't be using hpacucli these days. The correct modern tool is hpssacli. Also, there are more efficient ways to check the hardware RAID controller status. What OS/distribution/version are you running? Do you have the other management agents installed?

Ironically, the reason this works on our other HPraid hosts is that they're running newer versions of hpacucli, which apparently don't use iopl(). Upgrading hpacucli on these older hosts resolved the problem. The mystery of how to selectively allow iopl() remains. Perhaps for another day.

I'd contact your HP rep and confirm that ML150 G3 really supports two E5345 because the official list of supported CPU:s are: Processor, One of the following depending on configuration Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor E5335 (2.00 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB,80 W)* Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor E5320 (1.86 GHz, 1066 FSB, 80W)* Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5060 ...

For that particular server, there is a binary driver (hpahcisr, not cciss or hpsa) available for supported operating systems (Windows, RHEL6, SuSE); neither of which you're planning to use. In the case of Ubuntu or anything other than RHEL5/6, your only options are a different controller or to use software RAID. Ubuntu is totally unsupported on this ...

I wanted to add personal experience to this post... You can add the appropriate cage, in my case the non-hot swap cage to get another 4 drives. I added a SAS controller to run 8 drives. With the appropriate cables, everything connects properly. However...the system will not power on with all 6 hard drives plugged in (2TB 10k SAS). I can get the system to ...

This is silly... How would anyone here know what's interfering with your HP C3000 blade's display and its ability to retract into the enclosure? If you're physically in front of the server, keep trying... but know that it's a replaceable part using your warranty. From the service manual, there isn't much that would block the travel path of the display. ...
