HP 1040 MSA Installasion

Seshadrim asked
Last Modified: 2015-05-27
I have HP DL 580 G5 server running with Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise edition and is attached with HP 1500 Storage Array through a Single fiber channel.

We have now decided to replace the Storage array with an MSA box and have procured a new HP 1040 MSA with dual controller.

The Plan is to configuring the new MSA as a direct attached storage to the server along with the HP Storage array  and migrate the data to MSA.

Once the data is migrated we will detach the old storage array and configure the MSA with Dual Paths.

I need assistance on

01) How to access the MSA storage and create the RAID arrays
02) How to Present those RAID Arrays to the Server as Disk for Data Migration
03) Once the Data Migration is completed and the Storage array is disconnected,  How to Configure Windows to access MSA using Dual Path.
