This document is for the person who installs, administers, and
troubleshoots servers and storage systems. HP assumes that you are
qualified in servicing and installing computer equipment, and are trained
in recognizing hazards in products and hazardous energy levels. For
complete information on installing and configuring your product, please
see the user guide provided with your HP StorageWorks P2000 G3
MSA System. User documents are provided on the Software
Support/Documentation CD shipped with the product. For the latest
version of a document, see the HP Manuals website:

support/manuals.
This document contains cable configuration information for HP
StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA Systems.
Configuration notes
Any number or combination of LUNs can be shared among a max-
imum of 64 host ports as long as the total adds up to no more than
512 LUNs per P2000 G3 system (single or dual controller configur-
ation).
A maximum of eight (8) enclosures (including the array enclosure)
OR one hundred forty-nine (149) drives are allowed in the array
configuration.
In order to maximize performance, do not mix 6Gb and 3Gb disk
drives in the same enclosures.
For Windows computers that are cabled directly to the P2000 G3
controller CLI port, a special device driver file must be downloaded and
installed on the Windows computer prior to using the CLI port. This
device driver file can be found on the Software Support/Documentation
CD that is included with your system and at
p2000: click HP Support & Drivers, select your product, click Download
drivers and software, select your Windows operating system, and then
select Driver - Storage Controller.
NOTE:
Directly cabling to the CLI port is an out-of-band connection
because it communicates outside of the data paths used to
transfer information from a computer or network to the controller
enclosure. An in-band connection can also be used to configure
a new controller. If it is, cabling to the CLI port might not be
necessary. This method uses the Discovery utility on the Software
Support/Documentation CD that is included with your system
and is the best way to discover the controllers' IP addresses
automatically so that you can use them to log into and manage
your controllers using a Web browser for the SMU Web-based
interface or telnet for the CLI command-line interface.
Connecting the P2000 G3 MSA System
to remote management hosts
The management host directly manages systems out-of-band over an
Ethernet network.
1.
Connect an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet management port on each
P2000 G3 MSA controller.
