I have a possibly unused Dell EqualLogic PS6000, but I can't figure out how to get it up and running. Or even where to start really. It was previously owned by another company, but when they sold it to us, they said they never used it. This was a few years ago, before I was at the company, so I don't know if this means absolutely never used, or if they mean set it up and then left it alone, as it was installed in the server rack already.
What I want to do is, if there is existing setup/data, to reset it to factory settings, and then set it up.
Steps I've taken: I plugged power into both ports, and turned them on. the fans come on and and both control cards the ACT light comes on.
I tried plugging it into one of our switches, but there was no activity showing either on the EqualLogic or the Switch. I only plugged one ethernet cable in at a time, but I most of the ports on the EqualLogic with no success.
I also tried consoling in, from both a Mac and PC.
With the MAC, I connected using a Serial to USB adapter, but nothing is shown as being connected when I look in the terminal using the command
ls -ltr /dev/*usb*
With the PC, when I connect using the Adapter and open Putty, I don't get any results either.
Any and All Help is appreciated. Thanks
