We have an HP MSA1500 with some hard drives in it.
Attached to this are 2 controllers (MSA1000).
This stuff was already configured before I started but the environment has now changed and we aren't using it anymore.
I want to set this up as a temporary dumping grounds of sorts.
There is a fiber connection going to an HP ProLiant server running ESXi 5.1. This server isn't really in production so I can shut it down as needed.
As it stands now, I can see the datastore that was originally created from within vCenter but I'd like to change the RAID configuration.
I tried installing one of the HP array utilities from one of the VMs on the ESXi host but it won't install on a virtual machine and I'm unsure how I'm supposed to access this SAN so I can reconfigure it.
There's a console port on each of the 2 controllers on the front but there is no way to connect this thing to the network so I can access through a web interface.
Any help would be appreciated.
