Reinstallation of MD3000i

maxihost used Ask the Experts™
Hello Everyone,

I have one storage MD3000i from Dell and I have reinstalled my Windows OS where I had MDSM installed.

I have now downloaded the MDSM iso from Dell site and I need to reconfigure my MD3000i.

I just ran MD3000i Configuration Utility but I am a little affraid of those options, which asks me to set up controller IPs, chap password, storage password, etc. I dont want to lose my actual array, I just need to get into my actual one.

I have the management IPs with me. What should I do ?

If it is like our HP 2021i then those connection options are ok and should not affect the storage.  You may not need the management app. Try connecting to the web interface of the MD3000i, or the telnet  and serial console options instead.
