If you must put your hands into the unit, do so after turning off the power and removing power plugs from outlets. Be careful not to catch or bump your fingers.

vi

WARNING
Warnings concerning power Do not overload an outlet with the power cords of the disk array unit and extended BBU. Doing so could cause a fire. Do not put heavy objects on the power cords of the disk array unit or extended BBU. If the covering of a power cord is torn, it could cause a fire or electric shock. Although the disk array unit and extended BBU are compatible with AC 100 V-AC 240 V, the accompanying power cords are as follows according to model number. Model numbers NF5111-S*/NF5131-S*: For AC 100 V Model numbers NF5111-N*/NF5131-N*: For AC 200 V When using the accompanying power cord, use it with AC 100 V (50/60 Hz) or AC 200 V (50/60 Hz), depending on the product model number. Using it with a different voltage could cause electric shock, smoke, or fire. Insert the plug of the power cord of the disk array unit or extended BBU in an outlet securely. Provide sufficient slack in the power cord so that excessive force is not placed on the power cord plug or the power cord. If the power cord is disconnected during operation, it could cause data loss or failure. To prevent electric shock, connect the power cords of the disk array unit and extended BBU to outlets that have ground terminals. Grounding to an object such as a gas pipe is hazardous and must never be done. Warnings concerning batteries The batteries of the disk array unit could explode if brought near flames or soaked in water. When lithium batteries (button batteries) and nickel metal hydride batteries no longer operate correctly due to their life spans, do not disassemble, exchange, or charge them yourself, but contact your sales or maintenance service agent.

vii

CAUTION
It is recommended that setup and maintenance of the disk array unit be entrusted to service engineers with specialized knowledge from your maintenance service agent. For details, contact your sales agent. Although installation and maintenance of the disk array unit can be done by customers themselves, they must understand that Bull and its sales agents shall not assume responsibility for any damage to the disk array unit, its components, or connected devices or for any outcome occurring during, before, or after operation when customers do these things themselves. When installing the disk array unit, follow the documentation in the Disk Array Unit Installation Guide. The Disk Array Unit Installation Guide is included in the accompanying CD. Because the disk array unit is precision equipment, do not expose it to strong vibrations or shock, regardless of whether the power is on or off. Do not disconnect a disk drive, cable, or other part while the power is on. If customers themselves change connections of the disk array unit system once it has been configured, there is a risk of operation ceasing or data disappearing. To change connections, it is recommended that you ask your maintenance service agent. To expand the system, turn off the power of the disk array unit and remove power cords from outlets. Not doing so could cause failure or electric shock.

viii

CAUTION
Be sure to perform backup of the data of the disk array unit regularly. It is recommended that particularly important files be backed up on media such as magnetic tape. Reason: The disk array unit, which is available on strictly hard failures, cannot cope with unexpected vibrations or shocks, power cuts due to electrical outages, or soft faults. Damage from soft faults can be kept to a minimum by performing backups. A hard failure is a phenomenon such as a disk drive being damaged or a disk drive being unable to rotate. A soft fault is a phenomenon such as a human error or a host malfunctioning. It is recommended that the latest software and firmware for the disk array unit be used. The disk array unit could be destroyed if you power it off or it becomes powered off while updating its firmware. Be sure that it does not become powered off during a firmware update. Do not power off the disk array unit or the host unit or reset the host unit if the ACTIVE/FAULT LED (green or orange) of a disk drive of the disk array unit is blinking, if the host unit shows that a disk is being accessed, or if it shows that initialization is in progress. If a fault occurs in the disk array unit, the SERVICE LED of the disk array unit and the FAULT LED corresponding to the faulted component illuminate. When faults occur, contact your sales or maintenance service agent. Cautions concerning power If a component of the disk array unit normally is not fully inserted or is loose, or if a cable normally is not fully inserted or is loose, it could cause failure. Always connect all power supplies of the disk array unit and pass current through them. If no current is passed, data is not duplicated and data may be lost. A power supply that is not connected is judged to be abnormal.

ix

CAUTION
Cautions concerning DC power This equipment is designed to permit the connection of the earthed conductor of the d.c. supply circuit to the earthing conductor at the equipment. If this connection is made, all of the following conditions must be met: - This equipment shall be connected to directly to the d.c. supply system earthing electrode conductor or to a bonding jumper from an earthing terminal bar or bus to which the d.c. supply system earthing electrode conductor is connected. - This equipment shall be located in the same immediate area (such as, adjacent cabinets) as any other equipment that has a connection between the earthed conductor of the same d.c. supply circuit and the earthing conductor, and also the point of earthing of the d.c. system. The d.c. system shall not be earthed elsewhere. - The d.c. supply source is to be located within the same premises as the equipment. - Switching or disconnecting devices shall not be in the earthed circuit conductor between the d.c. source and the point of connection of the earthing electrode conductor. Cautions concerning disk drives A disk drive is an electronic device. When handling one, take measures against static electricity, such as using a wrist strap. If you do not have a wrist strap, firmly place one hand on the unpainted metal surface of the disk drive before handling it. Mount three disk drives in the disk array unit at locations 00, 01, and 02 of the unit. If these are not mounted, data may be lost. Do not remove more than one of the drives at locations 00, 01, and 02 of the disk array unit while the power to the unit is off. Moreover, do not turn off the power if more than one of the drives at locations 00, 01, and 02 are removed. If you remove drives, data may be lost. When adding disk drives or changing the locations at which disk drives are mounted, be sure to work on one at a time in powering them on. Install the next disk drive after confirming that the installed disk drive is ready. When installing a disk drive, lock the ejector after it has been inserted fully. Not inserting it fully may cause failure. Do not change the locations at which disk drives are installed if logical disks have been configured. Data may be lost.

CAUTION
Cautions concerning batteries The batteries of the disk array unit have a life span. If batteries are used past their life span, the backup time cannot be guaranteed and user data may be destroyed on a power outage. When replacing batteries due to their life span, a request for battery purchase and maintenance must be made. Ask your sales or maintenance service agent for details. As the life span of this equipments battery, it will be short if there is many times of backup. The life span of battery is set up just for the condition of unexpected power supply cutting like a power failure. For normal use, please cut the power supply according to a regular power supply cutting procedure. (There is an exception partly. For the details, please refer to 5.2 Notes on Turning Off the AC Power.) In addition, the life span of this equipments battery shortens with condition of a high temperature. The life span is for 5 years with condition of 25 degrees Celsius, but with condition of plus 10 degrees Celsius the life span becomes about a half of that (2 years and a half). Performance may deteriorate while charging the battery of the disk array unit. Reason: Fast writing in which a cache is used is not done unless the battery is fully charged, since backup time on a power outage cannot be guaranteed. When disposing of batteries of the disk array unit, do so in accordance with local government regulations. For details, contact your local government. The unit is equipped with batteries as follows. Each controller: Lithium battery (button battery) Each controller: Nickel metal hydride battery Each extended BBU: Nickel metal hydride battery

xi

CAUTION
Cautions concerning cables For the FC cables and SAS cables used in connections in the disk array unit, use cables and cable lengths specified by Bull. If cables other than those specified are used, data can be lost. Check cable specifications and connectors so that there will be no wiring errors. If the unit were operated with wiring errors, data could be lost. When correcting wiring, it may be necessary to erase all disk drive data. When installing, confirm that there is no bending or other damage, dust adhesion, or dirt on connectors or contacts. Do not forcibly insert cable connectors. A connector cannot be connected unless it is inserted with the correct orientation and at the correct angle. When inserted correctly, they go in smoothly without applying excessive force. If you cannot insert one successfully, do not forcibly insert it, but check the orientation and shape of the connector. Handle cable connectors carefully so that they are not dropped on a floor and damaged. Do not place excessive strain on the connector portion or the cable portion of an installed cable. Do not deform a cable by stepping on it or putting heavy objects on it. Treat optical fiber cables with care and respect. Rough treatment of optical fiber cables could cause deterioration of characteristics or mechanical damage (line disconnection). (How to treat optical fiber cables) 1. Ensure a minimum bending radius of 30 mm. 2. Do not drop a cable on the floor or otherwise shock it. 3. If not connecting a cable, place caps on it. When connecting a cable, do not discard the caps but save them (as well as those for connectors on the unit). Optical power may be attenuated by dust or dirt present when inserting an optical fiber cable in a controller of the disk array unit and result in data errors. When inserting a cable, always be sure to clean the optical connector using the following procedure. (Cleaning method) 1. Spray air or another parts cleaning gas on the optical connector for several seconds. 2. Wipe the optical connector lightly several times with a non-fibrous cloth wetted with isopropyl alcohol. 3. Spray parts cleaning gas on the optical connector for several seconds again.

xii

CAUTION
Treat SAS cables with care and respect. Rough treatment of the cables may cause deterioration of characteristics or mechanical damage (line disconnection). (How to treat SAS cables) 1. Make allowance for cable forming. 2. Do not forcibly stretch a cable or otherwise stress it. 3. Ensure a minimum bending radius of 80 mm. Cautions concerning LAN In connecting to the Storage Manager, be sure to connect to a LAN port and not to a MNT port. Assign different addresses for the IP address of the CONT#0 LAN and the IP address of the CONT#1 LAN. This disk array unit does not support several features, including teaming. Set Auto Detect for servers, hubs, and other devices connected to the LAN. Reason: Connecting to a device in full duplex mode could cause abnormal operation. If settings do not match, it may be impossible to connect intermittently even if a connection is established temporarily. To set Speed and Detect settings other than Auto Detect, ask your sales or maintenance service agent. Use a shielded straight cable to connect a LAN cable via a hub or a shielded cross cable to connect it directly. Do not place excessive strain on the cable portion or connector portion of an installed LAN cable. Do not deform the cable by stepping on it or putting heavy objects on it.

xiii

CAUTION
Cautions concerning UPS Constructing a system configuration in which a UPS is used allows the system to operate stably even if an accidental power interruption or momentary AC power outage occurs. Consult your sales or maintenance service agent concerning configuring a system in which a UPS is used. A disk array unit and a directly connected UPS can be linked only if the host is an NX server. Consult your sales or maintenance service agent concerning configuring a system in which a UPS is used. Do not use a UPS other than the ones specified. Operation is not guaranteed if you use one other than one that is specified. Do not connect a UPS to the UPS interface without the AC power turned on. This state is equivalent to a power interruption and mistakenly causes processing for power interruptions to operate.

Perchlorate Material special handling may apply. See www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/perchlorate. This only applies to California, USA.

xiv

Indication on Safety
The warning label is attached to components with possible danger or their vicinity in your disk array unit to inform the user that a hazardous situation may arise when operating the disk array unit.

1.Overview
1.1.Features
The features of this disk array unit are shown below. <High performance, large capacity> Fibre channel (FC-AL/Fabric, 400 MB/s) is employed in the host interface. Disk drives employed are 73 GB (15,000 rpm), 147 GB (15,000 rpm), 300 GB (15,000 rpm), 450 GB (15,000 rpm), or 600GB (15,000 rpm) SAS disk drives, and 500 GB (7200 rpm), 750 GB (7200 rpm), 1TB (7200 rpm), or 2TB (7200 rpm) SATA disk drives, of which a maximum of 144 drives can be implemented. SAS disk drives and SATA disk drives can be mixed in a disk enclosure. Connection as a Windows, Linux, HP-UX, Solaris, or AIX server storage system is possible.

<High reliability, high availability> Controllers, caches, power supplies, fans, and other major components are made redundant. Note. In Single Controller model, the controller and cache are not made redundant. Caches are double-written between controllers so that even if one controller fails, data is preserved in the cache of another controller. Note. In Single Controller model, caches are not double-written. In Single Controller model, the initial value of the write cache function is OFF. Data in a cache is held a standard 24 hours by the battery. By adding an optional extended battery backup unit, the backup time can be extended to a maximum of 72 hours. RAID-1, 3, 3DP, 5, 10, 50, 6, and TM are supported. Even if one disk drive fails, continuous operation is possible and data is not lost. Note. RAID-5/50, RAID-6, and TM are supported for SATA disk drives. Multiple hot spare disks can be established.

<Operation management> - Configuration, status display, and status monitoring can be performed easily using Storage Manager. Note. In order to use this disk array unit, you must purchase the program product Storage BaseProduct separately. Storage Manager is included in BaseProduct.

1.2.Unit Life Span and Maintenance Period


The unit life span and maintenance period after production ends for the disk array unit are as follows. Parts used in the disk array unit include parts that must be exchanged due to their life spans (such as cooling fans and battery backup units). Since life spans may be shorter than five years depending on the environment in which the disk array unit is used, it is recommended that parts be exchanged regularly. Contact your maintenance service agent regarding exchanges and life spans. - Unit life span: - Maintenance period: Caution. 5 years 5 years after production ends

If you continue to use the unit past the unit life span, be sure to perform overhaul (for a fee) in addition to contracted hardware maintenance. Overhaul can be done only once.

Note that repair may not be possible in the cases below. Moreover, a fee may be charged even if within the warranty period. - Stained goods, dropped goods, goods damaged by mishandling - Goods damaged by mishandling in storage or shipping - Items touched by the user - Items whose life spans are over - Goods damaged by reason of earthquake, lightning, fire, or other disaster, and goods damaged due to an accident or other external cause < Parts that have life spans > - Fan (Power supply): - Battery: - Extended BBU: 50,000 hours 5 years 5 years

Caution.

As backup frequency increases, the battery life span of this unit becomes shorter. This life span is calculated considering only accidental power disconnection such as power outage. Be sure to turn of the power according to the proper power-off procedure. The battery life span of this unit also becomes shorter when it is used at high temperatures. The life span is about five years when the unit is used under conditions in which the ambient temperature is 25C (77F), but will be reduced to approximately half (about two years and six months) when the ambient temperature rises by 10C (18F).

1.3.Disposing of Equipment

End preparation

Figure 2.1

Preparation Steps

1. Confirming the WWPN (World Wide Port Name) of the host bus adapter (Fibre Channel controller) This setup is only for WWN mode (using the WWPN of the host bus adapter to allocate LUN to the production server) as the AccessControl setup mode. During the setup task, the WWPN of the host bus adapter installed on the production server is obtained using software. However, it is recommended that you make note of it and provide for a substitute task (confirmation of the server expansion slot location at which the host bus adapter is installed and the WWPN) in case of a host bus adapter fault. The confirmed WWPN of the host bus adapter may have to be input manually if the WWPN of the host bus adapter cannot be obtained by the software.

2. Installing the host bus adapter If a host zbus adapter has already been installed in the production server, this task is not necessary. Install the host bus adapter in the production server according to the host bus adapter and production server users manuals.

3. Installing the host bus adapter driver If a driver for the host bus adapter that is installed in the production server has already been installed and set up, this task is not necessary. Perform the tasks of host bus adapter driver installation and setup according to the manual that came with the host bus adapter product installed in the server.

4. Installing StoreWay MultiPath (Windows/Linux) If StoreWay MultiPath has already been installed and set up for the production server, or if StoreWay MultiPath is not being installed, this task is not necessary. * To perform this task, installation and setup of the host bus adapter driver must be done first. Perform the tasks of StoreWay MultiPath installation and setup according to the StoreWay MultiPath Users Manual that comes with the StoreWay MultiPath product, or the StoreWay MultiPath Installation Guide.

2.3.Unpacking
This is the task of unpacking a delivered disk array unit and removing the materials used to protect the unit for transportation. In order to prevent condensation, unpack them after acclimating the disk array unit to the ambient temperature sufficiently (approximately nine hours). In unpacking, take the disk array unit itself and the accessories out of the carton in such a way that they are not exposed to excessive shocks. The disk array unit is extremely heavy. If only one or two persons lift it when taking it out of the carton, they may hurt their backs. At least three people should take the disk array unit out of the carton by supporting the bottom of the unit and not holding on to projections such as power supplies and controllers. The carton is designed to transport precision equipment. Do not discard the carton because it will be needed when returning the unit to the factory for repair.

2.4.Checking Package Contents


Remove the contents, making sure you have everything listed below. If anything is missing, contact your sales representative For the necessary program product, such as ControlCommand and StoreWay MultiPath, refer to the list of included items which is attached to each product.

2.6.3.Setting AC Operating Mode


This disk array unit is equipped with an AC operating mode. When AC operation mode is enabled, the disk array powers on when the AC power is turned on. The AC operating mode is enabled when the unit is shipped. It can be disabled by changing DIP switch settings in the controller of the disk array unit. When the AC operating mode is disabled, power is controlled by the power button of the disk array unit.

When The AC operating mode is disabled, the facility to control power using ESMPRO/AC cannot be used since power to the control circuits on the controller is not on. To use the facility for power control by ESMPRO/AC and NX coordination mechanisms (UPS), be sure to enable The AC operating mode.

<How to change mode> To disable AC operating mode by changing shipped state Change the DIP switch by referring to 6.7 Changing DIP Switches. The first switch (Bit1) of the DIP switch OFF disables The AC operating mode. ON enables the AC operating mode.

Make the settings of CONT0 and CONT1 the same.

2.8.Turning On Unit Power


2.8.1.AC Operating Mode
This disk array unit is equipped with an AC operating mode. When AC operation mode is enabled, the disk array powers on when the AC power is turned on. The AC operating mode is enabled when the unit is shipped. When the AC operating mode is disabled, power supply will be controlled by the power button of the disk array unit. Change AC operating mode by changing the DIP switch. Refer to 6.7 Changing DIP Switches.

2.8.2.Power-On Procedure
1. Supply power to the expanded BBU and the disk array unit. Turn on the expanded BBU first or turn on them simultaneously.

Note. When AC Operating Mode is enabled, AC power will turn on automatically. Go to step 3. If AC operating mode is disabled, go to step 2. AC power of disk enclosure part will turn on sequentially, corresponding with the disk array unit.
2. When AC operating mode is disabled, push the power button on the rear side of the disk array for about one second. Push until the fan on the power supply part rotates. Go to step 3. FAN FAN

Perform this procedure on either CONT 0 or CONT1.

Note. If the unit is 2 controller model, push power button of either CONT 0 or CONT1. It is unnecessary to push both buttons. AC power of disk enclosure part will turn on sequentially, corresponding with the disk array unit.

61

3. Wait until the POWER LED (green) on the front side turns on and SERVICE LED (orange) LED turns off. Note. After turning the power on, SERVICE LED (orange) blinks while initializing and performing a self-test. If SERVICE LED (orange) doesnt turn off or POWER LED (green) doesnt illuminate after ten minutes, there is a possibility of failure. Refer to Chapter 7 Troubleshooting. When using snapshot function or data replication function, initializing time and self-test times will differ from referred to above. 4. Turn on the production server. Note. Turn on the production server after the disk array unit starts normally.

2.8.3.Notes on Turning On the AC Power


1. Notes on Turning ON from the Battery Backup State It takes up to 8 hours from the battery being discharged until it is fully charged. When it is not fully charged, fast writing that uses the cache (Cache Fast Write) is not done, which lowers performance. Since the cache cannot be retained at power-off, data is written to the disk without using the cache. The retention time of a battery that is not fully charged cannot be guaranteed. 2. Startup Procedure when losing the user data Follow the procedures below when failed to perform backup operation. <Startup when data in the cache has been lost> (1) After you turn on the unit, the service LED repeats blinking for 5 seconds ON and 7 seconds OFF. The unit does not start normally. (2) Turn off the unit by following 5.1 Power-Off Procedure. (3) Turn on the unit by following 2.8.2 Power-On Procedure. Note. Charging the battery takes up to 8 hours. If the unit does not start normally, there is a possibility of a failure. 3. Instructions for the use of snapshot function With the snapshot function, the management information for an update difference will be copied from a disk drive to the cache memory when the disk array device starts. Therefore, for starting disk array, it delays about 10seconds per 1TB of update difference data.

2.8.4.Power Control Methods Beside Power Button


1. Control Method Table 2.8 lists the control method besides using power button. Control Method ESMPRO/AC (UPS coordination) Host OS Windows Linux Features Coordination with the host is possible by using power control server. For details, check ESMPRO/AC. Automatic operation using power control server. For details, check ESMPRO/AC.

ESMPRO/AC Windows (automatic operation) Linux NX UPS coordination HP-UX This is an NX exclusive power control method. Windows (NQH-55/07 series UPS For details, check with your sales agent. Linux coordination) UPS Unspecified This is for countering momentary power interruption. (No UPS coordination) Table 2.8 Power Control Methods Note. Coordination refers to a mechanism that notifies the unit that AC input to the UPS was disconnected and begins shutdown processing.

When using UPS, duplex the UPS by connecting them to each power supply of the unit. Do this so that CONT0 and CONT1 are not simultaneously disconnected from AC power on a fault on one UPS.

63

107

When connected to production servers in Windows and Linux environments through a FC switch from one host connection port, the default value (Windows) need not be changed. However, you must perform Access Control license unlocking and operate in WWN mode. - Access Control is set to WWN mode automatically if you perform Access Control license unlocking and you bind logical disks by specifying a host in subsequent screens. If you do not unlock the Access Control license and you bind logical disks without specifying a host, set Access Control to WWN mode from [Configuration Setting] after terminating the initialization wizard.

The host connection port of the disk array must be set to the same data rate as the host bus adapter it connects. If the data rate is set different from the host bus adapter, it may not be possible to recognize the logical disk from the production server to which it is connected. If volumes cannot be recognized, recheck the connection between the host connection port and the host bus adapter and the settings. For a Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS) configuration, or if connecting to a fault tolerant server, set the Switch IDs of ports to connect to the same value. (Setting the Switch IDs to the same value makes the IDs (AL_PA) of the ports the same value.) For details, refer to Appendix A and Appendix B.

Be sure to input the program product license of the BaseProduct. When connecting a disk array to multiple servers, except for a single cluster configuration, the Access Control license must be unlocked and restrictions are needed so that a logical disk always is accessed from one OS.

109

Installing Access Control (unlocking the license), makes it possible to allocate accessible logical disks by server when configuring a multiple server connection. In [LD Binding] of [Initialization Wizard] and [LD Bind Easy Configuration] of [Easy Configuration], it is possible to specify production servers obtained in host information and allocate bound logical disks. The above automatically sets up the following to execute in Access Control setup. (1) Set access mode of port (2) Create LD Set (3) Link path to LD Set (4) Allocate logical disk Furthermore, if you unlocked the Access Control license from the initialization wizard, it automatically starts Access Control. If Access Control has not been installed (or Access Control is stopped), bound logical disks become accessible from all servers connected to the disk array. When you have input all of the license keys, click the [Next] button.

- When binding logical disks using the initialization wizard, it is possible to bind multiple logical disks of the same capacity in one RAID type. However, they cannot be bound successively. To add more logical disks, use [Easy Configuration] or [Configuration Setting] after the initialization wizard is complete. - In cases such as the following, using [Configuration Setting] without binding logical disks in the initialization wizard is recommended. When configuration is other than RAID-1 or RAID-6 When binding logical disks by specifying the physical disks in RAID-6 When binding logical disks by specifying implementation locations of physical disks in a disk enclosure When binding logical disks of different capacities in one RAID When binding logical disks when aware of replication or snapshot operation

112

(j) LD Binding If [LD binding] was selected in (i) Selection of LD binding, next bind the logical disk and assign it to the host (production server).

Figure 4.15

LD Binding Screen

Specify [RAID Type/PD Type], [LD Capacity], and [Number of LDs]. If the AccessControl license has been unlocked in advance, logical disk assignment can be performed by specifying a production server. Specify this by referring to the following. RAID Type/PD Type Select one of the RAID types/PD (physical disk) types displayed in a pull-down. LD Capacity Specify the capacity of the logical disk to bind. The capacity that is displayed by default shows the maximum capacity of a logical disk that can be bound if Selection host1 and Selection host2 are specified, excluding the 0.2 GB capacity of each control volume that is bound. The maximum capacity shown in the pull-down varies depending on whether a host is specified.

113

Number of LDs Specify the number of logical disks to bind. Selection host1/Selection host2 Check this to assign a bound logical disk to a specified host (production server). When configuring a cluster, checking both [Selection host1] and [Selection host2] makes the logical disk shared. If not configuring a cluster, check only Selection host 1. Only one host can be specified for each of [Selection host1] and [Selection host2]. If multiple hosts are connected and more logical disks will be added and allocated, add them after the initialization wizard finishes by referring to 4.4 Logical Disk Addition and Binding. - If checked A logical disk to be bound is assigned to a specified production server. If [Automatic collection] was selected in (e) Selection method of host information collection, production servers connected to the disk array are shown in the pull-down. Select the host to which to assign the logical disk. - If not checked The logical disk is not assigned to a production server. To allocate a created logical disk to a production server, execute Access Control setup from Configuration Setting. Refer to the Configuration Setting Tool Users Manual (GUI) for details. [Refresh] button If the name of the host to assign to the logical disk is not displayed in the [Selection host1/Selection host2] specification, click the [Refresh] button. The following screen is displayed.

- Update with info file. Read the host information file that was output using the host information collection command. The host information file must be stored in advance on the client.

Clicking the [OK] button acquires the specified host information. Clicking [Close] returns to the LD Binding screen without performing any processing. LD Set Name Use this to set and name a grouping of logical disks (LD Set) accessible to the specified host. The default value of the LD Set name is the name of the assigned host. To edit the LD Set name, check the checkbox displayed ahead of [LD Set Name]. Name To specify an arbitrary name for the logical disk, check the checkbox and change the name. A four-digit logical disk number is added to the specified name. Quick Format By performing only the minimum necessary processing and omitting data area initialization (clearing), this formats in a short time. This is available only for RAID types and platforms supported by quick formatting in a basic pool. The disk array provides basic pools and dynamic pools. Refer to the Configuration Setting Tool Users Manual (GUI) for details. GPT Disk Type This makes the OS type of the logical disk to bind a GPT disk type (WG). Select [GPT Disk Type] in the following cases. - Platform is Windows - To use as GPT disk type by host * When using a logical disk of 2 TB or more, it may not be possible to use it unless it is a GPT disk type. For details, refer to your Windows platform documentation.

115

If [GPT Disk Type] is not selected for a Windows platform, it is set up in the normal format (WN). This item can be selected only when host specification is performed. This format can also be changed later. (Change it from nickname setting of the relevant disk in the client main screen) Spare Binding Use this to automatically bind a spare physical disk that has the same PD type as that selected in [RAID Type/PDP Type (capacity)]. This does not bind a spare disk if there is no physical disk of the same PD type to bind to a physical disk as a spare. Following specification, click the [Next] button. Clicking the [Back] button returns to the Selection of LD binding screen.

- If a logical disk was bound without making an assignment to a production server, assignment to a production server can be made separately in [Setting Access Control] in [Configuration Setting]. Refer to the Configuration Setting Tool Users Manual (GUI) for details. - Making a host specification binds a 0.2 GB control volume besides the logical disk being bound in the LD Set (it binds two if host 1 and host 2 both are specified). Refer to the Data Replication Users Manual (Function Guide) and the Snapshot Users Manual (Function Guide) concerning control volumes. - If the Access Control license has not been unlocked, the following options cannot be specified. - Selection host1/Selection host2 and each LD Set Name - Name (prefix) In addition, the following options can be specified by performing host specification if the Access Control license has been unlocked. - Quick Format - GPT Disk Type

Perform the procedures below to confirm that production server host information has been stored.

- For Windows Refer to 4.3.2 Host Information Confirmation Using Storage Manager Client (Web GUI) and confirm that host information has been stored. If host information has not been stored, refer to 4.3.1 Host Information Collection and Storage Using File Output and after performing host information collection and storage using file output, refer to 4.3.2 Host Information Confirmation Using Storage Manager Client (Web GUI) and confirm that host information has been stored. - For Linux Refer to 4.3.1 Host Information Collection and Storage Using File Output and perform host information collection and storage using file output. Afterwards, refer to 4.3.2 Host Information Confirmation Using Storage Manager Client (Web GUI) and confirm that host information has been stored.

132

4.3.1.Host Information Collection and Storage Using File Output


Perform the procedure below. 1. Output host information file Refer to 4.1.2 Host Information Collection Using File Output in Windows Environment or 4.1.3 Host Information Collection Using File Output in Linux Environment and output a host information file. 2. Transfer host information file to management server Transfer the host information file to the management server on which Storage Manager server is running. 3. Store host information using host information storage command (iSMhoststore) Execute the host information storage command (iSMhoststore command) from the command prompt (in a windows environment) or the command line (in a Linux environment) on the management server on which the Storage Manager server is operating. In the -import option, specify the host information file that was transferred from the production server. And in the -arrayname option, specify the nickname of the disk array to which the operation applies. Execute the host information collection command (iSMcc_hostinfo command) as a user with administrator privileges in a Windows environment or as a user with root privileges in a Linux environment. Moreover, when performing host information storage, the target disk array that is the storage destination must be being monitored normally from the Storage Manager server. Execution example when the Storage Manager server is operating in a Windows environment
D:\> iSMhoststore -import \ServerName -arrayname StorageName iSMhoststore: 002 Host Information was imported successfully. (Disk Array=StorageName) iSMhoststore: 001 Command completed successfully.

Execution example when the Storage Manager server is operating in a Linux environment
# iSMhoststore -import /tmp/ServerName -arrayname StorageName iSMhoststore: 002 Host Information was imported successfully. (Disk Array=StorageName) iSMhoststore: 001 Command completed successfully.

133

After you execute the host information storage command (iSMhoststore command), message number 002 is output. Check this to confirm that host information storage succeeded.

If another disk array is already installed and you execute the host information storage command (iSMhoststore) in a configuration in which logical disks of an existing disk array are assigned to the production server, even if you correctly specify the disk array name in the -arrayname option, the error message below may be output and host information storage may not be possible. iSMhoststore: 103 Specified Disk Array does not exist. In this case, use the procedure below to correct the host information file and then store the host information again. 1. Open the host information file in a text editor. 2. Delete all iSM_ArrayInfo table descriptions (portions enclosed by <class name=iSM_ArrayInfo> and </class>) except those corresponding to the disk array specified in the -arrayname option. 3. Save the corrected host information file. 4. Re-execute the host information storage command (iSMhoststore) with the -arrayname option specified.

134

4.3.2.Host Information Confirmation Using Storage Manager Client (Web GUI)


Perform the procedure below. 1. Confirmation of connected host list screen Select the target disk array in the main window of the Storage Manager client (Web GUI) and select [Connected Host] to display a list of connected hosts.

3. Confirmation of connected host detail information screen (disk array port) Confirm that port information of the connected disk array is displayed in [Diskarray Port] when a FC port of the host adapter connected to the disk array is selected in [HBA List] of the connected host detail information screen. If the procedure in 4.3.1 Host Information Collection and Storage Using File Output was performed when the production server did not recognize the logical disks, since disk array port information was not collected and stored, the information is not displayed in [Diskarray Port] in the connected host detail information screen. In this case, performing 4.3.1 Host Information Collection and Storage Using File Output after 4.5 Connection Confirmation from Production Server is finished and store host information again so that disk array port information will be displayed in the connected host detail information screen. Stored host information can be used in LD Bind Easy Configuration or when setting Access Control. Refer to the Configuration Setting Tool Users Manual (GUI) regarding LD Bind Easy Configuration and Access Control.

Note.

In an environment in which StoreWay MultiPath is installed, logical disks that are controlled by StoreWay MultiPath control may be displayed. They are displayed after the logical disks recognized by the OS via host bus adapters (host adapter #1 and host bus adapter #2 sections of the above sample display). It depends on the Linux kernel version.

2. StoreWay MultiPath setup and status confirmation If you have not installed StoreWay MultiPath, this task is unnecessary. After confirming that a FC cable is connected between the server and the disk array, restart the server and perform the checks below from the command prompt. Refer to the StoreWay MultiPath Users Manual (Linux) or the StoreWay MultiPath for Linux Installation Guide for details. (a) Confirmation of kernel version Confirm that StoreWay MultiPath supported by the kernel being used is installed.

5.Power-Off Procedure
5.1.Power-Off Procedure
1. When powering off, first turn off the power of the production server. 2. Press the power button at the right end of the rear face of the disk array unit for at least five seconds. The READY LED blinks rapidly if power is disrupted. Note. If two controllers are installed, press the power button on either of the controllers. You need not press both buttons. Pressing the power button for 10 seconds or longer continuously forcibly turns off the power, which may be bad for the disk array unit. Accordingly, stop pressing the button as soon as possible after power-off is accepted. 3. The power of the disk array unit and of disk enclosures is turned off within ten minutes. (All LEDs other than those on the power supplies go off and the fans stop rotating.) 4. Turn off the AC power of the disk array unit, extended BBU, and disk enclosures. Disconnect the AC power of the disk array unit and disk enclosures by unplugging the AC input receptacle or disconnecting it at a breaker. Start power-off for the disk array unit and disk enclosures after power-off of the production server is completed. Turn off the AC power only after the RDY LEDs go off. If one or more disk enclosures are connected to the disk array unit, always turn off the AC power of the disk enclosures after power-off of the disk array unit is completed.

148

5.2.Notes on Turning Off the AC Power


1. User data backup If you disconnect the AC power without performing the procedures in 5.1 Power-Off Procedure or 2.8.4 Power Control Methods Beside Power Button, the disk array unit saves the cache by battery. Product Name Optima1500 Without Extended BBU 24 hours With Extended BBU 72 hours (3 days)

Table 5.1 2.

Battery Backup Retention Time

User data cant be retained over battery backup retention time. When passing the retention time, user data may loss. When cases more than the prescribed battery backup retention time exceed 4 times a year, life of the battery shortens. (guarantees of the battery are not had.) The extended BBU varies by product name.

Instruction when using Data Replication Function

Update difference Information* managed by data replication function is built on the storage system volume or cache memory. When that storage system volume is not built, the information of update will be built on cache memory. So the device changes in a battery backup state when it stops however the power supply of a disk array unit is cut exactly according to procedure in 5.1 Power-Off Procedure. In this state, when it is over battery backup time limit of a disk array device, storage system information on a cache memory disappears, and it will be in condition as follows. * Information of storage system Activity State Separate State Synchronous State Separated (separated) Separate Execution (sep/exec) Synchronous Execution (rpl/exec) Synchronous State (rpl/sync) Restore Execution (rst/exec) Synchronous State (rst/sync) Table 5.2 State of Pair A difference becomes all domains. The state becomes fault and copy is stopped. A difference becomes all domains, replication starts again from the beginning automatically. The state becomes fault and copy is stopped. A difference becomes all domains, replication starts again from the beginning automatically.

Replicate State

Restore State

Data Replication Function

149

For restoration of the pair which became fault, please perform the following replication work. 1. Perform Forced Separate operation in RV object. 2. Perform restoring operation again. ( Replicate Separate or Restore ) Caution. Copying will be started again, all domains of an ethic disk become objective, it will be full copy.

In the case of using replication function, we recommend firmly to use a storage system information saving function and build storage system volume from the Storage Manager. Capacity of storage system volume is 8.9 GB. Turning off the power supply in a normal procedure, storage system information will be saved in the storage system volume. In the condition of not being built storage system volume, turning off the power make the life span of battery short, although storage system information is saved on cache memory within time of backup. When you dont use storage system volume, we recommend turning it on within 24 hours. Note. Storage system information saving function means the function to save storage system information like a map for a difference of the duties volume (MV) and the reproduction volume (RV) on the disk drive.

5.3.Auto-Shutdown Function
The auto-shutdown is a function to save user data, difference map, and composition information in a cache to a disk drive automatically when host IO are not issued for five minutes. When the power is disconnected without following the normal shutdown procedure with the unwritten data remained on the cache, battery backup function operates to protect the data on the cache. But if the battery remains at this status for a long time, the battery will be discharged and the data on the cache may be lost.

As the auto-shutdown function guarantees the data on the cache to be written to the disk drive, data will be protected although the unit is powered off without following the shutdown procedures.

Completion of the automatic shutdown can be judged by the rapid blinking of the POWER LED. Even if power-off / powerfail occur in the automatic shutdown sequence completed, they are not notified of for five minutes (the SNMP trap does not occur). This is not to notify you of a fault to occur by the gap of the timing of the power-off of the both system in the manual power-down. But they are notified you of when power-off / powerfail continued in single system in automatic shutdown sequence completed more than five minutes.

6.Expansion Methods
6.1.Notes on Expansion
Check the precautions and working methods below when performing installation tasks for options installed in the disk array unit. Options and cables should be parts that Bull specifies. There is a charge for repairs associated with malfunction, failure, or damage to the unit that occurs as a result of using parts other than those specified.

About electrostatic countermeasures The internal parts of the disk array unit are electronic parts that are weak against static electricity. Be careful of component failure due to static electricity when working. Wearing a wrist strap (arm band, antistatic glove, or other) Wrap a wrist grounding strap around your wrist. If you do not have one, touching an uncoated metal surface of the cabinet before touching a part discharges static electricity stored in your body. Also periodically touch a metal surface while working so that you discharge static electricity. Workplace checks Work on a floor for which measures to prevent static electricity have been taken or on concrete. If working on carpet or another location in which static electricity readily occurs, do the work after taking measures to prevent static electricity.

Use of work stands Place the disk array unit on an antistatic mat and do the work on that as well.

Clothing Do not work wearing clothing made of wool and synthetic fibers. Work wearing antistatic shoes. Remove precious metals (such as rings, bracelets, or watches) before working.

Parts handling Put parts to install in antistatic bags until inserting them in the disk array unit. Hold the edges of each part and do not touch pins or mounting parts. When storing or transporting parts, put them in antistatic bags.

Trouble in disk array unit or disk enclosure (rear panel power LED status) 4. Trouble in disk enclosure 5. Trouble in extended BBU 6. Trouble in SAS cable connection

1.

Trouble in disk array unit (front panel LED status) Condition Action This is not a fault. This indicates that the disk array unit is in normal operation after turning on. This indicates the disk array unit power-on sequence has not been completed. It takes several minutes until POWER LED illuminates after turning on the unit. * If POWER LED does not illuminate in 10 minutes, check the following. Confirm that AC power is being supplied to the unit. Confirm that POWER GOOD LED on the back of the unit illuminates. If this LED is out, check cable connection and power source.

POWER LED (green) illuminates, but SERVICE LED is out POWER LED (green) is out

SERVICE LED (orange) illuminates

This indicates that the disk array unit, connected disk enclosure, or extended BBU requires maintenance. Since there are two or more maintenance requests at the same time, check all of the following. - Confirm that AC power is being supplied to both PS0 and PS1 in the disk array unit, connected disk enclosure, or extended BBU. To ensure that AC power is being supplied, confirm that POWER LEDs of the disk array unit and disk enclosure illuminate and CHARGE LED of the extended BBU is not out. - When SERVICE LED of the connected disk enclosure illuminates, refer to the description of SERVICE LED illuminates in 4. Trouble in disk enclosure. - When either of the FUALT LEDs of the extended BBU illuminates, refer to the description of BBU FAULT LED blinks in 5. Trouble in extended BBU. - When the last operation is maintenance, processing such as disk recovery may take time. Ask the maintenance personnel for the estimated time of completion. If the disk is not recovered beyond the estimated time, ask the maintenance personnel to investigate.

171

Condition SERVICE LED (orange) blinks

Action This indicates that the power-on sequence or download sequence of the disk array unit is in progress. It takes several minutes from start to finish of the sequence. When SERVICE LED still blinks in 10 minutes, there may be a failure. Caution. Do not turn off the power or AC power while SERVICE LED blinks.

The following are possible causes. Eliminate the cause and perform setup again. There are too few physical disks for the specified [RAID Type/PD Type]. If [Spare Binding] is selected, one more physical disk is needed in the RAID configurations below. Specify [RAID Type/PD Type] again after confirming the number of physical disks that are implemented. RAID1 (Basic Pool): Configured on 2 physical disks RAID6(4+PQ) (Dynamic Pool): Configured on 6 physical disks RAID6(8+PQ) (Dynamic Pool): Configured on 10 physical disks The specified logical disk capacity or number of logical disks is too great. The capacity from multiplying the specified number of disks and capacity exceeds the maximum logical capacity that can be bound in the selected [RAID Type/PD Type]. If the logical disk capacity is important, reduce the number of logical disks, and if the number of logical disks is important, reduce the logical disk capacity. Note that the maximum logical disk capacity differs depending on the presence of [Selection host]. If [Selection host] is selected, a control volume (capacity: 0.2 GB) is bound automatically for each host. Do not specify more than the capacity that is displayed by default. The capacity that is displayed by default is for one logical disk. Specify up to 511 for the number of logical disks. * The number of logical disks allocated to one LD Set is at most 512. If [Selection host] is not selected, the maximum value for logical disk capacity that is displayed in the pull-down can be specified. The capacity that is displayed by the maximum value is the capacity for one logical disk. Although the number of disks that can be bound is at most 1024, note that if a LD Set is made separately by Access Control, the number of logical disks allocated to one LD Set is at most 512.

7.6.1.Changing Network Settings for Monitoring Disk Arrays from Storage Manager
If a disk array cannot be monitored correctly from Storage Manager due to faults occurring in performing initialization or erroneous settings, network settings must be changed. Change disk array network settings using any of the following four procedures. Whether the disk array or management server must be changed is noted in the summary of each setting. Make changes after taking into account their effect on business. Yes (1) Changing Network Settings from Storage Manager 1 <Summary> - If changing only the IP address of the disk array to an address in the same network without changing the address of the management server, it can be done by changing only the disk array. - If changing the network itself, the management server also requires address changes from the OS after disk array setting change.

Currently, there is LAN monitoring by Storage Manager No

There is a logical disk that can be recognized by the production server No

Yes

(2) Changing Network Settings from Storage Manager 2 < Summary> - Only disk array addresses can be changed to fit with management server addresses (3) Changing again due to management server setting change < Summary> - Temporarily making the management server match the setting environment of the disk array, subsequent disk array changes in Storage Manager, and changing management server addresses again from the OS (4) Resetting due to network setting initialization < Summary> - After a disk array power cut, network settings can be initialized using DIP switches and the disk array can be reset later to match management server network addresses.

(Mistakenly) set information is known * Setting information can also be checked from log No

Yes

191

(1) Changing Network Setting from Storage Manager 1 If the disk array is monitored from Storage Manager, the disk array unit network settings can be changed from Storage Manager. Make changes using [Disk Array Setting] [Network] from the menu [File] [Configuration Settings/Reference] [Configuration Setting] [Individual Setting/Reference]. For details, refer to the Configuration Setting Tool Users Manual (GUI).

(2) Changing Network Setting from Storage Manager 2 If there is a host connected by FC to the disk array, changes can also be made using the network relief setting command (iSMnetconf) from the host. For details, refer to the Configuration Setting Tool Users Manual (GUI).

192

(3) Re-setting by Changing Management Server Setting Network setting can also be changed by executing the initialization wizard or Configuration Setting after temporarily making network settings of the current disk array unit coincide with management server network settings and changing them to make monitoring from Storage Manager possible. Confirmation of IP address that was set Provide the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address noted in the Network parameters setting screen of the initialization wizard. (*1) Check the settings of the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address in each controller of the disk array and of the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address of the Network Interface Card (NIC) in the host on which the Storage Manager server is installed (hereafter, management server), as well as the physical connection configuration. (*2) (*3) Temporarily change the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address of the management server NIC so that the IP address of the management server NIC is in the same subnet as the IP address of each controller. (*4) (*5) Referring to the installation guide, perform environment setting so that disk array monitoring is performed through a LAN connection from the Storage Manager server and restart the Storage Manager server. Confirm that the target disk array can be monitored from the Storage Manager client. Referring to the Configuration Setting Tool Users Manual (GUI), set the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address of the disk array via the network setting of the Configuration Setting. (*6) (*7) (*8) After restoring the temporary IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address of the management server NIC, restart the Storage Manager server. Confirm that disk array monitoring is being performed by the Storage Manager client.

(4) Resetting by Network Setting Initialization It is possible to initialize the disk array unit network settings in order to perform operations described in Chapter 4. Initialization of Disk Array from the beginning. However, only perform this initialization if network setting by the initialization wizard failed. 1. Change DIP switches of the disk array Change DIP switches by referring to 6.7 Changing DIP Switches. Changing the second switch (Bit2) of the DIP switches initializes network settings at startup.

Figure 7.2

DIP Switches

If the disk array detects a mismatch between DIP switch memory at the time of unit startup and when the network was set, it initializes network settings. Accordingly, it is not necessary to restore changed values (DIP switches).

195

2. Confirmation of Storage Manager server environment setting If disk array network addresses initialized as mentioned above are registered in the Storage Manager server Setting Utility program, perform deletion and restart the management server on which Storage Manager server is installed. If another disk array is already being monitored, monitoring stops during this interval. For details about environment setting, refer to the attached Storage Manager Installation Guide. - When Storage Manager server is a Windows environment Select the relevant disk array and click the [Delete] button.

Figure 7.3

Storage Manager Server Setting Utility Program (Windows)

196

- When Storage Manager server is a Linux environment Delete the portion of the entry shown below for the relevant disk array. [agent] : : Diskarray1 = ( ip = ( 192.168.0.1 ,192.168.0.2 ) ) : :

Delete

3. Execution of initialization wizard from Storage Manager Execute the initialization wizard again. For disk array DIP switches, controller 0 and controller 1settings need not be the same. For initialization, however, change both controller 0 and controller 1. Make changes to network settings from Configuration Setting for a disk array for which initialization has already finished and monitoring is being done from Storage Manager. If network settings have already been initialized by mistake due to DIP switches, perform the following minimum necessary setup using the initialization wizard. 1. Initialization wizard startup Click [Next]. 2. Selection of disk array Select the disk array unit for which to perform setup and click [Next] 3. Confirmation of disk array connection state Click [Next]. 4. Selection of setting method Select [Set by wizard form (standard)] and click [Next]. 5. Selection method of host information collection Uncheck [Automatic collection] and click [Next]. 6. Network parameters setting Input valid values, click the [Next] button, and click [Execute] after confirming that there are no errors in the confirmation screen. 7. Setting of host connection port When the screen is displayed, click [Cancel] to exit it.

Appendix.A.Notes on Using MSCS (Microsoft Cluster Service) in a Windows Server 2003 Environment
When using MSCS in a Windows Server 2003 environment, according to MSCS specifications, Target ID and LUN (number) of the disk array that each server recognizes must be set to the same values. A cluster cannot be set up if they are set to different values. For details, refer to the URL below. <KB331801> Cluster setup may not work when you add nodes. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331801/en-us

1. Target ID How to set the Target IDs of controllers of a disk array unit that are recognized by servers to the same value is described below for each connection configuration.

< Connecting disk array unit to server (HBA) directly >

Set the Loop Switch IDs of disk array unit controllers to the same value. The Switch ID that is set becomes the Target ID recognized by the server. Also set the Loop Switch IDs of all connected controller ports to the same value in the same way when the disk array unit is connected to the server by multiple paths. Server A Server B Server A

For controllers of the same disk array unit, set the Loop Switch ID to the same value. The Switch ID that is set becomes the Target ID recognized by the server. When connecting multiple disk array units to a FC Switch, be sure to set the Loop Switch ID for each disk array unit to a different value. If set to the same value, the units will not start normally. Note. For Loop Topology FC Switches, binding with one FC Switch is not possible since different Loop Switch IDs must be set within a FC Switch.

Note.

If you connect wrong disk array to Ports of Switch0 and Switch1, you can not perform cluster setup since Target IDs differ between controller 0 and controller 1. Target IDs at CONT0 and CONT1 differ.

Swtich0 - Port0 : Storage 0 - Cont0 Target ID 0 Swtich0 - Port1 : Storage 1 - Cont0 Target ID 1 Swtich1 - Port0 : Storage 1 - Cont1 Target ID 0 Swtich1 - Port1 : Storage 0 - Cont1 Target ID 1

2. LUN (number) How to set disk array unit LUN (numbers) recognized by the server to the same value is described below. The disk array unit offers the Access Control function that maps logical disk masking and LDN starting from LUN 0. If this Access Control has not been installed, the logical disks (LDN) bound in the disk array unit will be the logical disks (LUN) that can be accessed from the server. Installing Access Control may change the accessible logical disks (LUN) from the server. For example, if LDN00 to 03 are in the disk array unit, Access Control makes it possible to set them so that LDN00=LUN00, LDN01=LUN01, LDN02=LUN02 are recognized by Server A and also to set them so that LDN00=LUN01, LDN01=LUN02, LDN03=LUN00 are recognized by Server B. In this case, the LUN being recognized by Server A and the LUN being recognized by Server B are different LDN. If you do not install Access Control Special setting is unnecessary. If you install Access Control When setting up Access Control, be sure to set it so that an LDN in the disk array unit is recognized as the same LUN (number) by each server.

Appendix.C.Initialization of the Disk Array Using Initialization File


1. Overview An initialization file is available to create disk arrays with the same configuration. Batch initialization of disk arrays can be performed by using an initialization file. This file is created by saving the settings on the Initialization Complete screen of the initialization wizard.

Start screen

Selection of disk array

Confirmation of disk array connection state Selection of setting method Selection method of host information collection Network parameters setting Setting of host connection port License Unlock Selection of LD binding

LD Binding Finish

203

Pay attention to the following when using an initialization file.


-

Use it for disk arrays of the same configuration. To perform setup in a different configuration, select [Set by wizard form]. Use it after editing IP addresses and license keys. Do not edit items other than these. To modify a disk array for which Batch setting with initialization file was performed, start the initialization wizard again and make changes after selecting [Set by wizard form] or make changes individually from [Configuration Setting] after the initialization wizard finishes. Since path information in a LD set is information about the server used when the initialization file was saved, if the server being used is different, check and make changes to the information in the [Configuration Setting] Access Control after initialization ends. To use an initialization file, the disk array must satisfy all of the following conditions. - There are no pools or spares. - The platform of the host connection port is WN or LX. - Host connection port configuration change is not locked. If conditions are not satisfied, file reading cannot be selected.

204

2. Editing initialization file

To prevent the same IP address and license from being used for other disk arrays, they are described as xxx in the saved file. Initialization file becomes available by editing the IP address and license. Be careful not to edit other items. The format and sample settings of the initialization file are shown below. The format to perform batch settings from a user-defined file is explained. a. The file is an ASCII character format text file (*.txt). b. From a # (sharp) to the end of a line is treated as a comment. c. A section must be enclosed in [ ] and start from the beginning of a line. d. A section description action is in effect until the next section description appears. e. A sentence within a section in the syntax for settings by section is complete in one line. f. The syntax for settings by section is the format below. - Key=Value The setting for Key is described by Value. - KeyValue.Subkey=Value This specifies a subkey of the value set above it and describes its setting in Value. Key and Subkey names vary by section. g. If a section name begins with *, it is not used in setting. h. Since uppercase and lowercase characters are distinguished, take care in description.
