For information about other options, see the HP power distribution units website: http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/power-protection/pdu.html AC power is distributed to the rack through a dual Power Distribution Unit (PDU) assembly mounted at the bottom rear of the rack.

    Each PDM has seven AC receptacles. The PDMs distribute the AC power from the PDUs to the enclosures. Two power sources exist for each controller pair and disk enclosure. If a PDU fails, the system will remain operational. CAUTION: The AC power distribution within a rack ensures a balanced load to each PDU and reduces the possibility of an overload condition.

Make sure the following requirements are met when configuring your environment for direct connect: A management server running HP P6000 Command View must be connected to one port on each EVA controller. The management host must use dual HBAs for redundancy. To provide redundancy, it is recommended that dual HBAs be used for each additional host connected to the storage system.

This is the only WWN applicable to any controller installed in a specific physical location, even a replacement controller. Once a WWN is assigned to a controller, you cannot change the WWN while the controller is part of the same storage system.

The saved configuration data can save substantial time should it ever become necessary to re-initialize the storage system. The configuration data is saved to a series of files stored in a location other than on the storage system.

  • Page 42: Adding Disk Drives To The Storage System

    NOTE: If the storage system contains disk drives of different capacities, the HP SSSU procedures used do not guarantee that disk drives of the same capacity will be exclusively added to the same disk group. If you need to restore an array configuration that contains disks of different sizes and types, you must manually recreate these disk groups.

  • Page 43: Creating Disk Groups, Handling Fiber Optic Cables, Using The Ocp, Displaying The Ocp Menu Tree

    Creating disk groups The new disks you add will typically be used to create new disk groups. Although you cannot select which disks will be part of a disk group, you can control this by building the disk groups sequentially. Add the disk drives required for the first disk group, and then create a disk group using these disk drives.

    The menu tree is organized into the following major menus: System Info—displays information and configuration settings. Fault Management—displays fault information.

    Uninitializing the system Uninitializing the system is another way to shut down the system. This action causes the loss of all storage system data. Because HP P6000 Command View cannot communicate with the disk drive enclosures, the stored data cannot be accessed. CAUTION: Uninitializing the system destroys all user data.

    E Single Path Implementation This appendix provides guidance for connecting servers with a single path host bus adapter (HBA) to the Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA) storage system with no multi-path software installed. A single path HBA is defined as an HBA that has a single path to its LUNs. These LUNs are not shared by any other HBA in the server or in the SAN.

  • Page 112: Installation Requirements, Recommended Mitigations, Supported Configurations, General Configuration Components

    Installation requirements The host must be placed in a zone with any EVA worldwide IDs (WWIDs) that access storage devices presented by the hierarchical storage virtualization (HSV) controllers to the single path HBA host. The preferred method is to use HBA and HSV WWIDs in the zone configurations. On HP-UX, Solaris, Microsoft Windows Server, Linux, and IBM AIX operating systems, the zones consist of the single path HBA systems and one HSV controller port.

Whereas the dual HBA server has multi-path software that manages the two HBAs and their connections to the switch (with the exception of OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX servers), the single path HBA has no software to perform this function.
