I have an MD3000 connected to a PE2950 running Unix, and the PC that had the MDSM was removed from the network and disposed of (without my knowledge...). Can I install the MDSM on a new PC (windows XP VM or 7 pro VM) and access the working MD3000 without changing the configuration? I know one drive has failed and need to replace and configure.
Yes you can install MDSM on any host that has access to your network that the management port is connected too. Here is a link to the Resource CD that has MDSM on it for your MD3000. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=R294934&fileId=2731116445&osCode=WS8R2&productCode=powervault-md3000&languageCode=en&categoryId=CD
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
