    HP P2000 G3 iSCSI SAN MSA 2 - 2012 Drivers

    Has anyone got the 2012 drivers for HP P2000 G3 iSCSI MSA 2 - 2012 Drivers?

    They are not on the supplied CD and I cannot find them on the support website.

    Cheers

    Gareth

    Hi - do you need drivers? I've got the FC verison of this connected to a 2012 host and it doesn't need anything that Windows doesn't pick it up itself. Apologies I know that's not what you asked!

    I dont think we do need drivers after looking at it yesterday into the night, I have got the SAN itself configured now (its a nice piece of kit), its just seemingly a bit fiddly getting the SAN to see the cluster we have now, more to do with how 2012 wants the cluster to be setup I think.

    The thing I am finding confusing, is that we are obviously setting our SAN to raid, now on top of that windows seems to want to "software raid" the disks in the pool ?

    Its worth logging here that its on its way to working now for us, although pensively at the moment, we have had to reimage both machines here, have both machines currently using the HP smart update manager to the same standards and also discovered an issue where MPIO was causing us to have BAD POOL HEADER boot loops on the devices.

    Fun and games, but I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying the configuration of a SAN and iSCSI, its just a shame that a fair few of the Server 2012 books are out of date and refer back to things which only existed in beta, so much time has been wasted looking at old stuff by me in trying to do this, but it is the most exciting thing I have done in IT in the last few years.
