Connectivity of Storedge 3510 by using USB to Serial Connector & laptop

1. Use a USB to serial cable to connect to the COM port of the RAID array to the laptop.

2. Open putty and select serial connection. Verify the COM port no of USB to serial connector in device manager (on laptop) and set the serial port speed to 38,400 and click open.

3. The screen opens up the storage firmware screen, where we select Terminal (VT100 Mode).

4. From the firmware main menu we can view or change the ip by choosing Configuration Parameters > Communication Parameters > Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). By using this IP we can connect directly to the laptop using a cross cable to access the storage firmware screen.
