Connecting remote management hosts
One server connected to a MSA2000i G2 enclosure
About this document
The management host directly manages systems out-of-band over an
Ethernet network.
A: One server/single path requires one (1) Ethernet cable.
This document is for the person who installs, administers, and
troubleshoots servers and storage systems. HP assumes that you are
qualified in the servicing and installation of computer equipment, and
are trained in recognizing hazards in products and hazardous energy
levels. For complete information on installing and configuring your MSA
product, please see the user guide provided with your MSA2000 G2.

1.
Connect an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet management port on each
controller.
2.
Connect the other end of each Ethernet cable to a network that your
management host can access (preferably on the same subnet).
