  • Page 65

    When all updates are completed, a reboot may be required. After the firmware has updated, HP recommends a cold reboot as follows: Power off the StoreOnce Backup from the Maintenance page. After the system has completely shut down, wait at least one minute before powering on using the Power On button on the server(s).

    If you are already using IRS and wish to use Remote Support, you can either disable SNMP on the Backup system (if it is not needed for other non-HP tools) or disable remote support for StoreOnce on the IRS server. Consult your IRS documentation or HP Support for further details.

  • Page 67: General Procedure For Setting Up Remote Support On The Hp Storeonce Management Gui

    If you do not configure Remote Support, you will be prompted to do so every time you log onto the HP StoreOnce Management GUI. To prevent this, you should go to the Remote Support pages on the HP StoreOnce Management GUI and either configure it, or select No Support, as appropriate.

    The HP StoreOnce 2700 Backup system does not have a 10 Gbit ethernet card. Network For iSCSI devices the HP StoreOnce Backup system is designed to be run on a 1Gb or 10Gb (if model has 10 Gbit ethernet card installed) network. Performance will be reduced if a 100BaseT network is used.

  • Page 111: Power Up And Power Off

    Power up the server using the power on button on the server to trigger a cold boot and automatically power up. The normal boot sequence can take up to 10 minutes. On power up the HP StoreOnce Backup system runs its fans at high speed for approximately 10 seconds before returning to normal speed.
