I have a old Compaq StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/8-EL connected to a Compaqe MSA 1000
Storage Area Network. We are in the process of upgrading our MSA 1000 and hookup other
servers to this switch. The switch was not set up on the network . I was trying use
Hyperterminal using null modem cable to the switch so that I can get in to its Fabric OS
and assign an IP address. HyperTerminal does not detect the switch. I verified cable by connecting
spare switch which is exact same model. I can hook up the spare one but not the one
is working and connected to the working SAN array. I cannot reboot the switch because this
is a production environment . What are my options.?
