Anyone know if EVA5000 is supported by HP SE 9.7? In the matrix i can only see support for P6000 devices with CV at least version 10.00.
LE: Is HP SE 9.7 discontinued and out of support? If i do a search, HP site redirect me to Storage Operations Manager... It's the same thing? If yes, it is possible a free upgrade to the new version? Also, SE 9.7 support newer versions of DP then 8.1 (eq 9.04) ?
Your are correct, as per SE 9.7 Support Matrix the current supported versions for EVA P6000 are 4000, 6000, 8000 4100, 6100, 8100, 4400, 6400, 8400, P6300, and P6500 with CommandView EVA 10.00, 10.1, 10.2, or 10.3.
First. the reason you do not see EVA 5000s within the list is because CV EVA 10.x does not support EVA 5000 arrays. They are end of support . The EVA 5000 arrays are no longer supported so they do not show up within the SE support matrix.
SE 9.7 is still supported. Storage Operations Manager (SOM) is not the same product but a replacement product. It will be the replacement for Storage Essentials (SE). There is a migration program to migrate to SOM from SE. Contact your Hewlett Packard Enterprise Software Sales rep to lean more about it.
According to the latest support matrix, SE 9.7 with SP1 still only supports up to DP 8.1.2. You can submit an enhancement request to have it support newer versions of Data Protector, but that is the current status.
I hope that this answers your questions.
