    3 Storage Management Overview This chapter provides an overview of the components that make up the HP ProLiant Storage Server storage structure. The storage server is configured at the factory with default system settings and with the operating system installed. The information in this chapter refers to data storage that, except for the 100 series, does not come pre-carved or RAID configured.

  • Page 34: Fault Tolerance

    To protect against data loss from hard drive failure, storage servers should be configured with fault tolerance. HP recommends adhering to RAID 5 configurations. The table below summarizes the important features of the different kinds of RAID supported by the Smart Array controllers.

  • Page 35: Online Spares

    NOTE: For configurable storage servers, storage limitations are based on the type of SAN the storage server is connected to. See the individual SAN documentation for limitations of Windows Storage Server 2003. HP ProLiant Storage Server user guide...

  • Page 36: Logical Storage Elements

    Logical storage elements Logical storage elements consist of those components that translate the physical storage elements to file system elements. The storage server utilizes the WebUI to manage the various types of disks presented to the file system. The WebUI has two types of LUN presentation, basic disk and dynamic disk.

    Simple volumes can be mirrored or converted to spanned volumes. Fault tolerant disks cannot be extended either. Therefore, selection of the volume HP ProLiant Storage Server user guide...

    RAID. These volumes can also be assigned drive letters or be mounted as mount points off existing drive letters. In general, HP recommends utilizing the Array controller for the management of fault tolerance over the use of Windows Storage Server 2003 software RAID because it places an additional level of operating system overhead on volumes.

  • Page 39: Volume Shadow Copy Service Overview

    Formats consist of NTFS, FAT32, and FAT and all three types can be used on the storage server. However, the Volume Shadow Copy Service can only utilize volumes that are NTFS formatted. Also, quota management is possible only on NTFS. HP ProLiant Storage Server user guide...

  • Page 40: Clustered Server Elements

    Permissions can then be granted to those shares based on users or groups of users in each of the file sharing protocols. If your storage server model supports clustering, see the HP ProLiant Storage Server Administration Guide for complete details on cluster setup.
