I’ll keep everyone posted on our progress with HP. The esx servers are definitely not targets, so they shouldn’t necessarily see each other, but I guess that was my question I’m sure there are many storage options at this point, and the forums are a good place to start looking for recommendations won’t be surprised if you get a lot of responses to your message. We’re in the process of moving to a fully-redundant configuration with the 7.

We have a MSA our site for about 3 years now, since it is in use, every once in a while maa1500 have seen exactly the same behavior, mostly every 3 to 4 months, with all firmware levels this had happened to me 4.
I’ll be in touch after I hear the next steps toward a solution.

Might be more expensive, but if it works This would at least eliminate the MSAcs, but not sure if it would provide stability and would also introduce a single point of failure which is where I’m at today anywaysand possibly be more expensive than an EVA solution.
I’m also of the same opinion, but I haven’t found anything to replace it with at the same price-point. The esx servers are definitely not targets, so they shouldn’t necessarily see each other, but I guess that was my question I don’t think there is a way to continuously monitor the MSAcs.
The last controller failure happened after 23 days of almost continuous use. I was using our systems as were many customers at that time, but the controller that failed is actually not utilized all that much.
I’d like to hear from everyone possible. For root cause analysis, just beware that you’re still changing two things at once here both software and the hardware unitso you may not be able to tell what fixed the problem if it’s stable afterwards.

It’s just unfortunate that the unit has some problems. It does actually perform pretty well for the price, but an update has definitely been needed sooner than later. Well for me i dont css the msa verry much to many negative experiences, i have more confidence in the eva solution that has proven for a decade that it is a good storage solution.
This information can be extremely useful in diagnosing what is causing the particular problem. Well, I’ve heard from HP, but they just had a few more questions about the configuration. The serial port interface contains some commands that allow you to do a performance capture, stop a capture, and view the result.
I’ll keep everyone posted on our progress with HP. I don’t believe we have the “hosts” zoned on the switch, but rather a default config where all hosts and MSA’s can talk to each other.
They indicated that zoning is “not” necessary. Or are they used for other purposes? Good luck with HP in this matter, hope you get some constructive feedback of them that you can share with the community, i haven’t got any regarding these issue’s in the past from them.

Yes, the firmware levels on the switches are also quite important. I was in Kenya recently!
If it’s any indication, sc oldest switch firmware in the currently supported list was released in April So, not too much contention at all.
That might also be the increased cost of the disks. Profile has always been set to Linux. I guess this would coincide with the disconnection of the MSAcs from the fiber channel network, but seems a bit odd.
Do the EVA disks have this limitation? There are “no” events in the event log other than the power-up entries. The ‘s we’ve got running are for general use – VMware and other infrastructure applications such as Exchange and File and Print.
About the EVA’s, msa15500 have been told that in a eva you can do anything online eg. Please type your message and try again.
