Step 10: Install Hard Disk Drive Modules If the secondary hot-swap mass storage cage is locked, unlock it with its key.
Chapter 2 Installation Disk spacers must be installed to fill all empty spaces between adjacent disk drive modules or filler panels in the hot-swap mass storage cage. Insert disk drive modules slowly and gently to prevent damage, as described in HP NetServer Ultra2 SCSI Hot-swap Hard Disk Drive and Tray User Guide.
Chapter 2 Installation Key: Disk Spacer Low-Profile Disk Half-Height Module or Filler Panel Disk Module Numbers shown on drives indicate SCSI addresses. Figure 2-31. SCSI Addresses for Combinations of Drives on SCSI B Channel NOTE Disk drive modules in the secondary hot-swap mass storage cage are on the same SCSI channel (SCSI B) as any non-hot- swap devices.
Chapter 2 Installation Step 11: Reconnect Power Cord(s) and Other Cables 1. Reconnect the AC power cord(s) and any other external cables. 2. Attach the power cord retainer for each AC power cord, as shown in Figure 2-32. Lift the metal piece underneath, squeeze the two long metal tabs toward each other, and slide the wire bail over the tabs.
Chapter 2 Installation Step 12: Verify Hard Disk Drive LEDs Each Ultra2 hard disk drive module has two LED apertures on its front, one for power status and one for activity status, as shown in Figure 2-33. Activity Status LED Aperture Power Status LED Aperture Figure 2-33.
Chapter 2 Installation 3. If no LED apertures were illuminated on any disk drive modules, the power harness may not be correctly connected. Check it as follows: a. Turn off the NetServer power switch and unplug the AC power cord(s) and any telephone cables.
Chapter 2 Installation Check the light pipe on the module as follows: a. Remove the disk drive module, as described in the HP NetServer Ultra2 SCSI Hot-swap Hard Disk Drive and Tray User Guide. b. Inspect the light pipes, shown in Figure 2-34, for damage. If a light pipe is damaged, contact your reseller.
3 Configure Mass Storage Decide RAID or Non-RAID The disk drives in the secondary hot-swap mass storage cage, along with any non- hot-swap SCSI devices, can be configured in two different ways: Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) configuration under control of the integrated HP NetRAID controller Non-RAID configuration under the control of the SCSI B controller Non-RAID configuration (also called "JBOD"...
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage Non-RAID configuration of the SCSI B channel DOES support tape drives. NOTE Non-hot-swap SCSI devices have a dedicated connector on the SCSI B Channel. This connection isolates the non-hot-swap devices from the secondary hot-swap mass storage cage to allow the hot-swap drives to operate as Ultra2 SCSI.
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage NOTE The message "Configuration of NVRAM and drives mismatch" indicates that configuration information in the integrated HP NetRAID controller’s NVRAM differs from configuration information in hard disk drives. Press any key to start the HP NetRAID Express Tools utility. On the Tools Management Menu, choose Configure, and then do one of the following: If you do not want RAID on either SCSI A or SCSI B,...
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage Verify SCSI B Channel Control 4. When the Setup Utility menu is displayed, look for the following items: Integrated HP NetRAID Included SCSI_A Channel [ Included SCSI_B Channel [ Read the values in the brackets to determine whether the integrated HP NetRAID controller is enabled, and for which SCSI channels.
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage 6. On the Configuration menu, use the up and down arrows to highlight "Boot Device Ordering," and press ENTER to choose it. 7. On the Boot Device Ordering submenu, use the up and down arrows to highlight "Boot Device Priority,"...
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage If you receive an error message during the boot process, refer to "Troubleshooting" in the HP NetServer LH 4/LH 4r User Guide or the online help. Some power-up (boot) messages are routine. 2. As soon as you see the message Press Ctrl-C to start Symbios Configuration Utility...
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage 6. The Adapter Boot Order screen displays the two SCSI controllers and numbers representing their boot order in the following form: Boot Boot Order Bus DevFunc Order Bus DevFunc A SYM53C895 01 B SYM53C895 01 where A and B are the numbers 0 or 1 or a blank.
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage Verify Hard Disk Drive Modules As the HP NetServer restarts, watch the display monitor to determine whether all the drives you installed have been detected. NOTE Any SCSI devices controlled by the integrated HP NetRAID controller will NOT be displayed during the boot process.
Chapter 3 Configure Mass Storage If the suspect drive is not detected, swap the suspect module for another module that was detected in another position, restart the NetServer, and see whether either of those two drives are detected. If the suspect drive is detected in its new position, the secondary hot-swap mass storage cage may be defective.
A RAID Configuration RAID configuration of disk drives in the second hot-swap mass storage cage differs for the following cases: Initial configuration of the HP NetServer with two integrated HP NetRAID channels Later addition of the second integrated HP NetRAID channel NOTE Integrated HP NetRAID does NOT support tape drives.
