Proliant Server cannot see the MSA1500CS Box
Posted on 2007-11-15
We currently have two HP Proliant DL380 G5 Servers. These servers will function in a cluster as fileservers.
They will both be sharing the MSA1500CS Fibre Channel SAN i.e. as a clustered unit.
Problem - 1 server has been configured from scratch and is fully functional i.e. OS Installed (Win2K3 Server enterprise R2 = SP2) connected to SAN and Cluster configured with the Quorum residing on the SAN. ALL OK.
Second Server, however cannot see the SAN via the software provided i.e. MPIO DSM Manager and consequently I cannot join the server to the newly vreated cluster. Quorum on SAN not visible.
I never built either server but they were built by same person and the second server is the issue which I have to rectify
I am relatively new to the SAN arena so PLEASE be gentle :-)
Many Thanks in Advance...
