  • Page 52: Storage Management Overview

    4 Storage management overview This chapter provides an overview of some of the components that make up the storage structure of the storage system. Storage management elements Storage is divided into four major divisions: Physical storage elements Logical storage elements File system elements File sharing elements Each of these elements is composed of the previous level's elements.

  • Page 53: Physical Storage Elements

    Figure 30 Storage management process example Physical storage elements The lowest level of storage management occurs at the physical drive level. Minimally, choosing the best disk carving strategy includes the following policies: Analyze current corporate and departmental structure. Analyze the current file server structure and environment. Plan properly to ensure the best configuration and use of storage.

  • Page 54: Arrays

    To protect against data loss from hard drive failure, storage systems 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 55: Online Spares

    There are two types of LUN presentation: basic disk and dynamic disk. Each of these types of disk has special features that enable different types of management. The HP Pool Manager is used to create, edit, grow, shrink and delete storage pools.

  • Page 56: Partitions

    Through the use of basic disks, you can create primary partitions or extended partitions. Partitions can only encompass one LUN. Through the use of dynamic disks, you can create volumes that span multiple LUNs. You can use the Windows Disk Management utility to convert disks to dynamic and back to basic and to manage the volumes residing on dynamic disks.

    performance. Because defragmentation consolidates files and folders, it also consolidates the free space on a volume. This reduces the likelihood that new files will be fragmented. Defragmentation for a volume can be scheduled to occur automatically at convenient times. Defragmentation can also be done once, or on a recurring basis. NOTE: Scheduling defragmentation to run no later than a specific time prevents the defragmentation process from running later than that time.

  • Page 62: Expanding Storage

    For more information about RAID levels, see the Smart Array Controller User Guide, or the document titled Assessing RAID ADG vs. RAID 5 vs. RAID 1+0. Both are available at the Smart Array controller web page or at http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/arraycontrollers/ documentation.html. Extend volumes using Disk Management The Disk Management snap-in provides management of hard disks, volumes or partitions.

  • Page 63: Shadow Copy Planning

    The Volume Shadow Copy Service provides an infrastructure for creating point-in-time snapshots (shadow copies) of volumes. Shadow Copy supports 64 shadow copies per volume. A shadow copy contains previous versions of the files or folders contained on a volume at a specific point in time.

  • Page 64: Allocating Disk Space

    Although shadow copies are taken for an entire volume, users must use shared folders to access shadow copies. Administrators on the local server must also specify the \\servername\ sharename path to access shadow copies. If administrators or end users want to access a previous version of a file that does not reside in a shared folder, the administrator must first share the folder.

  • Page 65: Determining Creation Frequency

    By keeping the shadow copy on the same volume, there is a potential gain in ease of setup and maintenance; however, there may be a reduction in performance and reliability. CAUTION: If shadow copies are stored on the same volume as the user files, note that a burst of disk input/output (I/O) can cause all shadow copies to be deleted.

  • Page 66: The Shadow Copy Cache File

    Figure 34 System administrator view of Shadow Copies for Shared Folders The shadow copy cache file The default shadow copy settings allocate 10 percent of the source volume being copied (with a minimum of 350 MB), and store the shadow copies on the same volume as the original volume. (See Figure 35 (page 66)).

  • Page 67: Enabling And Creating Shadow Copies

    Figure 36 Shadow copies stored on a separate volume The main advantage to storing shadow copies on a separate volume is ease of management and performance. Shadow copies on a source volume must be continually monitored and can consume space designated for file sharing. Setting the limit too high takes up valuable storage space. Setting the limit too low can cause shadow copies to be purged too soon, or not created at all.

  • Page 68: Set Schedules

    All shadow copies are listed, sorted by the date and time they were created. NOTE: It is also possible to create new shadow copies or delete shadow copies from this page. Set schedules Shadow copy schedules control how frequently shadow copies of a volume are made. There are a number of factors that can help determine the most effective shadow copy schedule for an organization.

  • Page 69: Disabling Shadow Copies

    Disabling shadow copies When shadow copies are disabled on a volume, all existing shadow copies on the volume are deleted as well as the schedule for making new shadow copies. CAUTION: When the Shadow Copies Service is disabled, all shadow copies on the selected volumes are deleted.

  • Page 70: Smb Shadow Copies

    Shadow Copies for Shared Folders is required. The client-side application is available for Windows XP, Windows 2000 SP3+, and later operating system versions. No additional software is required to enable UNIX users to independently retrieve previous versions of files stored on NFS shares. NOTE: Shadow Copies for Shared Folders supports retrieval only of shadow copies of network shares.

  • Page 71: Nfs Shadow Copies

    Figure 38 Client GUI When users view a network folder hosted on the storage system for which shadow copies are enabled, old versions (prior to the snapshot) of a file or directory are available. Viewing the properties of the file or folder presents users with the folder or file history—a list of read-only, point-in-time copies of the file or folder contents that users can then open and explore like any other file or folder.

Users can access only those shadow copies to which they have read access at the time the shadow copy is taken. To prevent users from modifying shadow copies, all pseudo-subdirectories are marked read-only, regardless of the user's ownership or access rights, or the permissions set on the original files.

  • Page 73: Backup And Shadow Copies

    Click either Copy or Restore. Clicking Restore enables the user to recover everything in that folder as well as all subfolders. Clicking Restore does not delete any files. Backup and shadow copies Shadow copies are only available on the network via the client application, and only at a file or folder level as opposed to the entire volume.

  • Page 74: Folder Management

    Folder management Volumes and folders on any system are used to organize data. Regardless of system size, systematic structuring and naming conventions of volumes and folders eases the administrative burden. Moving from volumes to folders to shares increases the level of granularity of the types of data stored in the unit and the level of security access allowed.

    This method results in a hierarchical security model where the network protocol permissions and the file permissions work together to provide appropriate security for shares on the device. NOTE: Share permissions and file-level permissions are implemented separately. It is possible for files on a file system to have different permissions from those applied to a share.

  • Page 82: Quota Management

    Quota management On the Quota Management node of the File Server Resource Manager snap-in, you can perform the following tasks: Create quotas to limit the space allowed for a volume or folder and generate notifications when the quota limits are approached or exceeded. Generate auto quotas that apply to all existing folders in a volume or folder, as well as to any new subfolders created in the future.
