Backup MSA Configuration

I lost array configuration of a HP MSA 500, after an heavy disaster recovery I searched details about its configuration.

Configuration is stored on the drives. During controller boot, it will read the your configuration off the drives.
To save configuration to an .ini file:
1 - Open a cmd prompt
2 - locate under "Program files" -> compaq -> cpqacuxe(hpacuxe) -> bin.
3 - Run: cpqacuxe(hpacuxe) -C [Drive:][Path]Filename
