P2000 adding host


I will be in the process of setting up a P2000 SAS SAN soon, where do I find the Host ID so I can input it onto the P2000?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Set up your LUNs, and connect to the SAN within iSCSI Initiator on the host. It's automagic that way.

You may need to acknowledge the host's ID in the SAN's management before connection is permitted.

It's a SAS, not iscsi
Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/StorageCommented:
The management on the P2000 will have a section listing SAS Initiators connected. In the setups we've worked with (not HP) we've mapped the initiators to the LUNs. That makes the LUNs show up as available storage on the connected nodes.
