Hi Team,

Have to reinitialize a used VNX5300 Unified Storage. Could you please help me with the step by step procedure.

Have been able to reinstall the CS but gets stuck way throught the configuration.

Have rechecked the cabling aspect and all looks well

Am using VIA verson 7.0.54 and OE version 7.0.54

Can ping the CS ip from my local client but the VIA or the USM Intialization Wizard cant discover the VNX.

Cant fix the SP B Ip address, see image attached.

Very urgent please.

Is the VNX direct from EMC or through a partner (Cisco) ?

Go to http://10.10.4.233/setup (assuming this is SPB) and confirm that the IP address, mask, gateway and Peer IP address (Peer IP is the address of  SPA) is set correctly and then repeat for SPA. FOr SPA, the Peer IP will be the address of SPB.
