We have HP DL 580 G4 Server with 1.6TB inbuilt space running VMWARE ESX 3.5 on it. Since we are running short on space so we are planning to attach an Additional DSA (HP StorageWorks MSA60 Dual Domain with 12 1TB DP SAS MDL HDD 12TB Bundle ).
Since This is the first time we are going to install a DSA to our environment so before that i would like to have a proper understanding and Documnets to configure it properly. Can you pls. let me know the proper Step by step procedure to installl and configure it.
Existing 1.6TB space is divided like.
1. RAID 1 For OS
2. RAID5 For Data
Now we want to use this DAS as a third Datastore which we will be using as a Datastore in the Virtual Intrastructure to store the data.
Pls. let me know if you need more details on this.
