Hi i was wondering if anyone had the knowledge to help me with my issue of directly connecting a AD542B to a GL360 G5 server. Current Specs of Server are: AE312A FC HBA 8GB RAM Server 2008 R2 x64 3.2GHz xeon processor 500GB HDD. Installed within the AD542B i have: 2x AJ715A FC B AD624B FC A AD623B 2 x power supplies 1 X AD625B My issue is that i want to connect this device directly to the server so that i can test FC HDDs. I have no need for any functionality except to diagnose any issues within the HDDs installed within it. Any help would be glady appreciated. All drivers and firmware for the AE312A are up to date and i also have the Qlogic gui installed, but still cannot detect the disk array on my system.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The array would need to present the volumes to the HBA’s. Since the FC switches are not a part of the setup, then there is no zoning and this should be straight forward.

From the AD542B, create the volume and present it to the HBA WWN. After the presentation, your HBA’s should see the volume.
