Important Announcement

Announcing Microsoft Windows Server 2012 support with HP LeftHand SAN/iQ software version 9.5. 

 

Caution: SAN/iQ 9.5 Hyper-V VSA and FOM running SAN/iQ 9.5 are not supported on Windows Server 2012. If you currently use either of these products with HP LeftHand/P4000 SAN Solutions, you must upgrade to LeftHand OS (formerly known as SAN/iQ) version 10.0 first and then upgrade to Windows Server 2012. Click here for more details on LeftHand OS 10.0.

 

If you currently use HP LeftHand DSM for MPIO with SAN/iQ 9.5, you must install HP StoreVirtual DSM for MPIO version 10.0.0.1486.1 on Windows Server 2012. Click "Receive for free" at the top of the page to download the recommended product (AT004-10503). Version 10.0.0.1486.1 can be installed on Windows 2008, but is not required, and does not need to be reinstalled when upgrading to Windows Server 2012 in the future.  Version 10.0.0.1486.1 is supported with LeftHand OS 10.0 as well. Therefore, when you upgrade to version 10.0, you do not need to upgrade DSM for MPIO again.

 

If you currently use Application Aware Snapshot Manager (AASM) with SAN/iQ 9.5, you must install Application Aware Snapshot Manager (AASM) version 9.5.0.1005 on Windows Server 2012. Click "Receive for free" at the top of the page to download the recommended product (AT004-10508). Version 9.5.0.1005 can be installed on Windows 2008, but is not required, and does not need to be reinstalled when upgrading to Windows Server 2012 in the future. 

 

If you do not use HP LeftHand DSM for MPIO, Application Aware Snapshot Manager (AASM), Hyper-V VSA, or Hyper-V FOM with SAN/iQ 9.5, you can use HP LeftHand SAN/iQ software version 9.5 with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 without making any changes to your HP LeftHand/P4000 SAN Solutions products.

 

Product Announcement

LeftHand Recovery Manager is now available for SAN/iQ version 9.5 and 9.0. It simplifies the recovery of Windows files and folders from LeftHand snapshots. The Recovery Manager allows users to manage mounted snapshots, search for and recover files and folders from snapshots and establish auto-mount policies for snapshots of LeftHand volumes.

 

HP P4000 storage management software/firmware version 9.5 is available in addition to version 9.0.

         Version 9.5. introduces several new features and enhancements including the Application Aware Snapshot Manager which provides application managed snapshot capabilities for VMware and Hyper-V as well the traditional VSS functionality from previous versions.  A new SAN status home page, remote copy performance improvements and enhancements to the VSA are among the other new features in this release.

         Components rolling to version 9.5 include the Centralized Management Console (CMC), system image (SAN/iQ) for all platforms, quick restore CD and all client side components.

         All users should upgrade to 9.5 CMC and then install 9.5 on client side components and then SAN/iQ on storage systems (note that the VSS provider which is now part of the Application Aware Snapshot Manager should be upgraded AFTER SAN/iQ).

         Note that the HP P4000 Storage Replication Adapter software for VMware Site Recovery Manager needs to be upgraded for version 9.5 in all cases.  There is a new 9.5 adapter for SRM version 4 and also for SRM version 5.  The new SRAs are available via CMC online upgrades.  

         Refer to release notes for additional detail on 9.5 at � http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c03019619/c03019619.pdf 

 

Want to upgrade your existing P4000 environment to SAN/iQ 9.5?  Take advantage of our automated upgrade feature to simplify the process from now on! Follow these simple steps:

1.     If already running the 9.0 CMC, just download the available upgrades after the release date of October 4 or download and install the SAN/iQ 9.5 Centralized Management Console, by clicking the "Receive for Free" button.

2.     From the newly upgraded P4000 Centralized Management Console, invoke the automated upgrade feature, which will automatically analyze your SAN and download all the upgrade files needed to update each node. The download will also include other version 9.5 components like Application Aware Snapshot Manager and Command Line Interface that also need to be upgraded on their respective host application servers.

3.     The new P4000 Centralized Management Console will guide you through the upgrade process when you click on the Continue button in the Upgrades tab on the Configuration Summary page.

*CAUTION FOR VSA and FAILOVER MANAGER UPGRADES: SAN/iQ version 9.0 and above is built as a 64-bit virtual machine and is not compatible with 32-bit virtual environments. If running ESX 2.5 through 3.5, PRIOR TO UPGRADING TO SAN/IQ 9.0, ensure your processor architecture is 64-bit capable with the VT processor extensions enabled in the BIOS.
