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.

I have been able to refix the internal IP's on the SP's.

I started a new nas code installation but face a new issue:

 EMC NAS PXE-BOOT Setup
        ==========================================
            Stopping PXE Services...
A valid partition exists on LUN 0. Performing a fresh install would result in loss of system data. If you are sure you want to perform a fresh install,you must zero out LUN 0 and try again. Exiting install...
Type 'C' to continue:

Actually dont know how to zero the LUN0 if you could help at this point for a new installation to take place.
