Step 3 - Choose a Rack - Base and Factory Integration Information
Factory Integration Start your order by choosing a rack to house your EVA6100/8100 based on the HP 10000 G2 Series Rack. NOTE: The 10000 G2 Series Rack is the only series supported for factory configuration. NOTE: When choosing an EVA configuration, start with an EVA configuration "equal to" or "closest but smaller" than the desired final configuration. Factory configuration rules will not allow a unit to be built up past the starting point for another standard configuration. (For example for an EVA6100 2C6D choose an EVA6100 2C4D plus 2 M5314COrders that do not follow these conventions will be unable to be processed. Use of the EVA Factory Integration part number is required for component integration. If other products such as servers or back-up products are included in the cab a different PDU will be added (if required) or can be chosen from a list of appropriate offerings shown in the configuration tool. EVA8100 2C2D and 2C6D purchased without additional servers or products will be racked in the center of the rack. When these configurations are purchased with servers or other components the EVA will be racked from the bottom up. If a customer has a specific racking requirement they should use the Factory Express option to define the configuration. HP 10000 G2 Series Rack must be purchased. EVA6100/8100 bundles and drive enclosures may be ordered for multiple subsystem integration at the factory. Additional cabs are required to house configurations beyond the U-space of the initial cabinet. Ballast and stabilizers will be offered through the configurator tools for use when required. The EVA4100/6100 and EVA8100 controller pair assemblies are only available for field installation and should be chosen when field installation is required. HP Global Services will perform the on-site installation when an EVA4100/6100 or EVA8100 controller pair assembly is ordered. The 5642 (42U) Rack Cabinet System is supported for field installation. This racks DA - 12745 Worldwide Version 11 September 14, 2009 Page 33

About this document
The EVA4100/6100/8100 uses active/active controller failover behavior instead of the active/passive controller failover behavior in VCS 3.xxx. The change to active/active will impact most host congurations. The impact of this change may involve replacing HBAs and drivers, installing new multi-pathing software, and re-establishing the correct paths to the storage system LUNs. Use this document to assess: The impact of upgrading your EVA3000/5000 to an EVA4100/6100/8100. Your current host conguration to determine the changes required to support active/active (if applicable). What storage system components may have to be replaced during the upgrade. NOTE: You must be running VCS 3.028 or later, or VCS 4.007 or later to upgrade to an EVA4100/6100/8100. You must perform this assessment on any host connected to the storage system you are considering upgrading. Any host connected to an EVA4100/6100/8100 must be congured to support active/active I/O. This upgrade procedure is used when upgrading to EVA4100/6100/8100 controllers. All upgraded controllers must have XCS 6.110 or later installed.
This document is intended for customers who are considering upgrading an HP StorageWorks EVA3000/5000 to an EVA4100/6100/8100.
Review supported host conguration information
Before beginning the assessment, review the supported host conguration information for the applicable operating systems.

To support active/active, it may be necessary to install new multipathing failover software. In most cases, this will involve moving from Secure Path to native multipathing or a third-party application. Enter the current multipathing software in the following table. Then refer to the connectivity release to determine what multipathing software is supported by XCS 6.110 or later. Table 6 Multipathing software Host/OS version Current multipathing software Supported multipathing software
Upgrade task responsibilities
The following table provides an overview of the major tasks involved in upgrading the storage system and identies who typically performs each task. Many of the tasks can be performed prior to the arrival of HP services to perform the upgrade. Completing these tasks in advance will reduce the amount of time required to upgrade the storage system. Table 7 Upgrade task responsibilities Task
1. Complete the upgrade assessment checklist. This ensures that you have recorded the changes that must be made to your environment. 2. Purchase and install any new HBAs and drivers that may be required. Contact your HP sales representative for assistance in ordering new HBAs. 3. Install new multipath and/or driver software required. This software will be used to connect to the storage system following the VCS upgrade. Many operating systems support the coexistence of active/passive (VCS 3.xxx) and active/active (XCS 6.110 or later) storage systems on the same host. It may be necessary to use separate HBAs and fabric rezoning to implement coexistence on the host. See Table 8. 4. Back up all data on the storage system.
Customer performs prior to the upgrade.1
Customer performs prior to the upgrade.
Although the upgrade does not require the restoration of data following the upgrade, it is still recommended that a complete backup be performed. 5. Upgrade the storage system to an EVA4100/6100/8100. 6. Recreate all I/O paths to the storage system virtual disks.

1Version 1.1 of the LMP utilities used during the migration from active/passive to active/active does not remove Secure Path from the host, including all LUN information. Consequently, the host can provide failover for any active/passive storage systems that are being managed using Secure Path.
Secure Path and the QLogic driver can reside on the same host, allowing failover management of both active/active and active/passive storage systems. The QLogic driver supports both active/active and active/passive storage systems on the same Linux host, so coexistence is supported when only the QLogic driver is used.
