A SCSI tape backup drive may be connected as an option to the external SCSI connector at the rear.

  • Page 24

    Chapter 3 Installing Mass Storage Devices • SCSI Device Selection o Use only HP LVD low-profile (1 inch) SCSI 3.5-inch hard disk drives in the Hot Swap drive slots. o Ensure the SCSI devices you install in Hot Swap slots do not have terminations installed.

  • Page 25: Boot Priority

    Chapter 3 Installing Mass Storage Devices CAUTION Thermal damage or excessive electromagnetic radiation may result if you operate the HP Netserver without filler panels inserted in empty SCSI HDD slots. Figure 3-1. HP Netserver Mass Storage Drives Boot Priority The Netserver's boot order should be considered when selecting a boot device. This is especially important if you are installing a board that requires a high priority in the boot order.

  • Page 26: Hardware Mirroring

    * The primary IDE (IDE-1) cable is connected to the factory-installed CD-ROM drive. A secondary IDE connector (IDE-2) is available on the system board, but is not supported by Hewlett-Packard. ** Both SCSI channels (A and B) can each support up to 15 devices; however, there are only enough internal storage slots for six Hot Swap SCSI hard drives.

  • Page 27: Installing Hot Swap Hard Drives

    Chapter 3 Installing Mass Storage Devices CAUTION To prevent damage to the Hot Swap SCSI hard disk drives, do not use a HVD (high voltage differential) DAC controller. If you are mirroring hard drives using the HP NetRAID Controller board, refer to "Duplexing SCSI Hard Disk Drives"...
