Controller and software for CX4-480 + DAE3P

I have recently acquired a used dell/emc DAE4P Fiber enclosure and a CX4-480. I have never worked with EMC Fiber SANs but from what I understand the enclosure is dumb and cannot be used as a direct-attach and needs to communicate with the CX4-480. I have a windows 2008 server system and I am getting an EMC knowledge overload with attempting to install and use the enclosure. I think I need navisphere on my server to communicate with the CX4?

Re: Controller and software for CX4-480 + DAE3P

The way the array works is thought the LAN connections on each Storage Processor. These ports on the CX4 are normally set to 100Mb/s with auto/auto.

You access the array using a WEB browser - IE8 is best for CX4. You also need JAVA installed - use 1.6.30 to begin - it's the most stable for CX4. You start the connection by typing in the IP address for one of the Storage Processors (there are two - SPA and SPB). The array will then connect to your browser using Java and should present a login page.

Go to this site - it will build a custom set of documentation to help you setup the array.
