notes will cause malfunctions or failures of the server.
■ Install the server in a place that meets requirements for successful operation.
■ Safety indications by color of the parts.
Only green area is available for Hot Swap or Hot Plug operation. To avoid electric shock,
disconnect all AC cords before accessing to others inside the system.
■ Make sure to power off the server before connecting or disconnecting cables between the
server and peripheral devices (except for hot-swappable devices).
■ Verify that the OS and the utility software running on BIOS has stopped and the access lamp
on the disk drive is unlit before turning off the server.
■ Verify that the access LED on the CD/DVD drive is unlit before ejecting the CD/DVD.
■ When you plug the power cord to the power outlet, wait at least 1 minute before powering on
the server.
■ If you power off the server, wait at least 30 seconds before powering it back on.
■ If you unplug the power cord from the outlet, wait at least 30 seconds before plug it back.
■ Do not turn off the server until characters following the "NEC" logo appear on the screen. The
time until the characters appear depends on your system configuration. Approximately, it may
take one to five minutes.
■ Turn off the power and unplug the power cord from the outlet before relocating or cleaning the
server.
■ Clean the server on a regular basis. (See Chapter 7 for cleaning.) Regular cleaning proactively
prevents various failures of the server.
■ Lightning may cause a momentary voltage drop. To prevent this problem, it is recommended to
use of an uninterruptible power supply unit.
■ For the disk which does not conform to the CD or DVD standard, the playback of such a disk
with the DVD drive is not guaranteed.
■ Check and adjust the system clock before the operation if any of the following conditions is
applicable.
– After carriage of the server
– After storage of the server
– After the server is entered into the pause state under the environmental condition enduring
the server operation (temperature: 10°C - 35°C, humidity: 10% - 80%).
Check the system clock at the rough rate of once per month. When the system clock is
installed in a system requiring high time precision, it is recommended to use a time server
(NTP server).
If the system clock is remarkably delayed or advanced as the passage of time in spite of
xix
adjustment, contact your sales agent to ask maintenance.
■ Store the unit under the approved storage conditions (temperature: -10°C - 55°C, humidity:
20% - 80%, without condensation) to allow the built-in devices and the unit to operate
correctly in the next operation.
■ If the server is stored under the environmental condition enduring device operation
(temperature: 10°C - 35°C, humidity: 10% - 80%), leave the server in the operating
environment at least one hour before turning the AC power on.
■ If the media (e.g., tape cartridge) brought from a cold place to a warm place suddenly is set
in the server, internal option device, or the backup device, the dew condensation may be
generated resulting in malfunction or failure of the unit. Leave the media in the operating
environment until it fully adapts to the surroundings to protect the valuable data or property.
Guideline to eliminate dew condensation in winter time (10 degrees or more temperature
difference from the room temperature exists):
Disk drive: Two or three hours (approx.)
Media: One day (approx.)
■ NEC recommends you use NEC's genuine products. Some third-party products claim that
they support the server. However, repair of the server due to a failure or damage resulted
from use of such third-party products will be charged.
■ Turn off the cellular phone or pager. Radio interference may cause malfunctions of the
server.

Advice for Health
The longer you keep using the computer equipment, the more you become tired, which may cause
disorders of your body. When you use a computer, observe the following to keep yourself from
getting tired:
Good Working Posture
Your working posture is good if the following are satisfied when you use a computer:
• You sit on a chair with your back straight.
• Your hands are parallel with the floor when you put them on the keyboard.
• You look at the screen slightly lower than your eye height.
No part of your body must be under excessive strain, your muscles must be relaxed.
Your posture is bad when you sit with your back hunched up or you operate a display unit with your
face close to the screen. A bad working posture may cause eye strain or poor eyesight.
Adjustment of the Display Unit Angles
Most display units are designed for adjustment of the horizontal and vertical angles. This adjustment
is important to prevent the screen from reflecting bright lights and to make the display contents easy
to see. You will not be able to keep a "good working posture" and you will feel more tired than you
should if you operate a display unit without adjusting horizontal and vertical angles.
Adjustment of Screen Brightness and Contrast
The display unit has brightness and contrast adjustment functions. The most suitable brightness and
contrast adjustment depends on the individual and on the working environment (well-lighted room or
insufficient light). Adjust brightness and contrast so that the screen is easy to see. An extremely
bright or dark screen will have cause eye troubles.
Adjustment of the Keyboard Angle
The keyboard provided with the server is designed for adjustment to a certain angle. Adjust the
keyboard at an angle at which the keyboard is easy to operate. The adjustment assists in reducing
strain on your shoulders, arms, and fingers.
Cleaning the Equipment
Clean the equipment regularly. It is difficult to see the display contents on a dusty screen. Keeping
your equipment clean is also important for your sight.
Fatigue and Rest
If you feel tired, you should stop working and do light exercises.

connect a large capacity storage device.
Disk Management
Improving the fault-tolerance of the hard disk drive can directly result in improving the
reliability of the whole system.
Data loss can be prevented and the utilization of hard disk drive can be improved by setting
redundancy of hard disk drive by grouping with use of optional RAID controller (disk array
controller).
The RAID system management utility can monitor RAID system status totally to handle the
failure of the hard disk drive in a short period of time with the linkage of NEC ESMPRO
Manager and NEC ESMPRO Agent.

Power Management
Failure of commercial power supply is one of major causes of system stop.
In addition to power failure and temporary blackout, voltage reduction, electrical overload
power distribution, failure in power facility, etc. may cause system failure.
Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) automatically supplies power from the battery when
voltage of commercial power supply commonly used starts dropping because of power
failure or temporary blackout and thus prevents the system from being stopped. System
administrator can save files and perform necessary processes while power is supplied. UPS
also reduces the variation of voltage and electric current and extends lifespan of the power
device, resulting in contributing to increasing the mean time between failures. This can also
achieve automatic and unattended operation by schedule, etc.
Network Management
By using NEC ESMPRO Manager and NEC ESMPRO Agent, error packet monitoring of
LAN connected to the server can be performed. By using separately sold WebSAM
NetvisorPro on Windows version, the entire network can be managed.
Remote Management
By using EXPRESSSCOPE® Engine SP2 and NEC ESMPRO Manager included in the
server as standard, the remote monitoring and management of the server through LAN or
WAN can be performed.
EXPRESSSCOPE® Engine 2 is realized by using the LSI for system management. The
following are the management functions provided by EXPRESSSCOPE® Engine SP2.
● Monitoring power unit

Processor Mounting Rule
 It is required to embed processors for processor memory modules.
 It is required to that processor memory modules are mounted in a server, connected to IOH#1
or -IOH#3 having Management Module (MGM) that controls server configuration, handles
failures, etc.
 With A1080a-S model, 1, 2, 3, and 4 processors can be embedded to the server 1.
 With A1080a-D model, 1, 2, 3, and 4 processors can be embedded both to the server 1 and 2.
 With A1080a-E model, 8 processors can be embedded to a server.
The following shows the connection of processor memory modules (PMMs) for A1080a-S model.
All processor memory modules can be connected one another. Some I/O controllers (IOHs)
cannot be connected to processor memory modules directly, but can be connected via other
processor modules.

Memory RAS Functions
The server supports the following functions as RAS functions.
There are some restrictions for the mounted memory when using each function. Refer to each
section for details.
 Memory Mirroring Function
 DIMM Sparing Function
 Memory Scrubbing Function
NOTE:
RAS is the abbreviation of Reliability, Availability, and
Serviceability. It is the concept of technological background to
improve reliability of systems. RAS consists of the initial letters of
these three basic technological concepts.
Reliability signifies to prevent a failure of hardware or software.
Mean time between failure, “MTBF,” is used as an indicator.
Availability is the term for improvement of the system availability
and the importance of this term is how to recover from failure as
quickly as possible.
Memory Mirroring
The Memory Mirroring function provides high fault tolerance similar to the memory RAID function.
Memory Mirroring is one of the RAS functions. This function prepares memory for mirroring that
has the same capacity (or more) for the memory whose contents are to be protected and
constantly duplicates (mirrors) the whole contents of the memory in the mirroring memory. In
case memory failure occurs, it can protect the contents stored in the memory by switching to the
mirroring memory.
Set Memory Mirroring from “Memory Mirroring” in Web Console.
IMPORTANT:
● Memory Mirroring and DIMM Sparing cannot be set
simultaneously.
There are two types of Memory Mirroring as below.
(1) Mirroring in the processor memory module
(2) Mirroring between processor memory modules
Each type is described in the next pages.
103
Hardware
(1) Mirroring in the processor memory module
A1080a-S/A1080a-D models support mirroring in the processor memory module.
Mirroring is performed between memory controllers (memory controller#1 and memory
controller #2) in the same processor as shown below. A memory controller with a lower
number (memory controller#1) is mirrored in principle.

DIMM Sparing
DIMM sparing is one of the RAS functions. This function constantly duplicates the contents of
DIMM having a possibility of failure in a spare DIMM that is prepared separately. In case DIMM
failure occurs, it can protect the contents of DIMM by switching to the spare DIMM immediately.

Memory Scrubbing
This function provides the patrol scrubbing and demand scrubbing functions. It can search in the
system memory preliminarily to detect a single-bit error automatically and correct correctable
errors, and can reduce the possibility of a multi-bit error occurrence in the same memory by
setting to never use the memory location permanently as an unreadable area.

Hardware
Other Memory Functions
The server memory has the interleaving function in addition to the above RAS functions.
Memory Interleave
The memory interleaving function is one of technologies that speed up data transfer of memory,
and is an approach to speed up by reading and writing from/into multiple memory banks
simultaneously.
The server can always perform memory interleaving in each memory controller. In addition, it can
perform among multiple memory controllers or among multiple processors.
Set Memory Interleave from “Memory Interleave” in Web Console when using memory
interleaving among multiple memory controllers or among multiple processors.

Interleaving(full ways)
Refer to “2.5.5 Mode Settings” of “Server Web Console” section for details on the settings.
When using memory interleaving among multiple processors, the memory accesses to the
consecutive area may become faster because multiple processors can access to those areas
parallelly. However, the performance does not simply improve in proportion to the number of
processors due to the controller overhead and discontinuous access to the address.
If there are many memory accesses via different processor, the performance may become lower.
When using the memory interleaving among multiple processors, the performance may become
lower if the NUMA,Non Uniform Memory Access, is set to “enable” on BIOS setup. So, it is
recommended that NUMA is set to “disable” on BIOS when using the memory interleaving
among multiple processors. Refer to the “Chipset” of “BIOS Setup” section for details on NUMA.
Restrictions for each model
 In A1080a-S/A1080a-D, it is recommended that memory capacity between memory
controllers that interleaves are the same.

Power Supply Unit
In the server, there are 4 slots where a power supply unit is to be mounted. The redundant
configuration can be achieved by the number of mounted units.
●
●
●
No Redundancy : Four power supply units are configurable. Two power supply units are
configured by default.
When A1080a-S model, the system is able to operate with a power supply
unit connected to a power supply outage. However it is not true when
A1080a-D model or A1080a-E model.
N+1 Redundancy: Operation can be continued even when one of power supply units fails.
For example, if the minimum requisite power supply units are two and
one more unit is added, this enables continuous operation by using the
available two units even when one of three units fails.
2N Redundancy: Operation can be continued by supplying power to two power supply units
from two electric power companies respectively even in the case of power
supply outage from one of the electric power companies.

Installation and Connection
Describes installation and connection of the server.
Installation
This server should be mounted in a standard EIA 19-inch rack cabinet.
Installation of the rack cabinet
Refer to the documentation attached to the rack or contact your service representative for the
installation of the rack cabinet.
Make sure that the rack is the one specified for the server.
WARNING
Observe the following instructions to use the server safely. Failure to follow these
instructions may result in death or serious personal injury. Refer to descriptions
after page iii for details.
●Do not use the server in any unapproved place.
CAUTION
Observe the following instructions to use the server safely. There are risks of
fire, personal injury, or property damage. Refer to descriptions after page
iii for details.
● Do not carry or install the rack only by a single person.
● Do not install the rack in a place where the load is concentrated on a specific
point.
● Do not install any components only by a single person.
● Do not pull out a device from the rack if the rack is unstable.
● Do not pull out more than one device at a time from the rack.
● Do not provide wiring exceeding the rating power.
134
Hardware
The following explains a site suitable for installing the rack cabinet.
● Place having available space of 1 m or more of front and rear, 60 cm or more of rigt and left, and
50 cm or more of upper of the server.
● The rack must be connected each other if two or more racks are installed.
● The stabilizers must be installed.
● Room that satisfies the following conditions for operation: * Temperature: 10 to 35ºC Humidity: 20
to 80% (no condensation)
● Wall outlet to connect the supplied power cord.
● On level and strong floor (can stand the waight of 600 ㎏ or more)
We recommend that the server should be used in a room where temperature is in the range
between 15 to 25ºC.
IMPORTANT:
Increase in temperature within the rack and air flow
If several servers are installed in the rack or if the ventilation within
the rack is not enough, the temperature in the rack may be raised
by the heat generated from the units, and be higher than the
operation temperature of the server (10 to 35°C).
This causes the server to operate improperly. Review the air flow
within the rack or in the room and take sufficient measures in
order to prevent the temperature within the rack from exceeding
the warranted temperature range during the system operation.
135
Hardware
Do not install the rack in the places listed below. Not doing so may cause some
malfunctions to occur.
Do not:
● Locate the rack in a narrow space that would prevent devices from being pulled out from the rack
completely.
● Locate the rack on a floor that cannot bear the total weight of the rack and devices mounted in the
rack.
● Locate the rack in a place where stabilizers cannot be installed or where the rack can be installed
only after proper earthquake-resistant is constructed.
● Locate the rack on an uneven or slanting floor
● Locate the rack in an area with drastic temperature change (near a heater, air conditioner, or
refrigerator).
● Locate the rack where intense vibrations may be generated.
● Locate the rack where corrosive gas may be generated (sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen
dioxide, chlorine, ammonia, ozone, etc), moreover where the ingredient which promotes corrosion,
conductive metal (sodium chloride, sulfur, etc.), etc. are contained in dust or air.
● Locate the rack in a place where some objects may fall on the rack.
● Locate the rack near a device that is generating intense magnetic fields (such as a TV, radio,
broadcast/communication antenna, power transmission wire, and electromagnetic crane.) If
unavoidable, contact your service representative to request proper shielding.)
● Locate the rack where the power cord of the server must be connected to an AC outlet that
shares other devices with large power consumption.
● Locate the rack next to an equipment that generates power noise (e.g., contact spark at
power-on/power-off of commercial power supply through a relay). If you must install the server
close to such equipment, request your service representative for separate power cabling or noise
filter installation.
136
Hardware
Mounting/Unmounting the server to/from Rack
Mount the server to a rack (the unmounting procedure is also described).
If you purchased internal optional products sold separately, mount it before mounting the server
to a rack.
CAUTION
Observe the following instructions to use the server safely. There are risks
of fire, personal injury, or property damage. Refer to descriptions after
page iii for details.
● Ensure to use a lifter to lift the server and support the bottom of
the server firmly to install or relocate it. If there is no lifter,
carrying the server by less than 4 persons may cause backache.
● Do not install the server in other than the location specified.
● Do not get your fingers caught.
● Do not unmount the server when the rack is unstable.
Pull out the stabilizer installed at the front bottom of the rack.
● Do not mount the server while leaving the cover removed.

Setting Network
It is required to set the network (the following (1), (2), (3)) for system, server and resource (BOX)
from EXPRESSSCOPE® Monitor to connect to each Web Console (refer to ”NEC
EXPRESSSCOPE® Monitor”).
(1) Setting Network address for System Web Console
[System]->[SYS Network]->[Set IP Addr / Set IP Mask / Set Gateway Addr]
(2) Setting Network address for Server Web Console
[Server x]->[SVRx Network]->[Set IP Addr / Set IP Mask / Set Gateway Addr]
(3) Setting Network address for Resource Web Console
[Box]->[Box Network]->[Set IP Addr / Set IP Mask / Set Gateway Addr]
IMPORTANT:
• Set the address of IP Addr/IP Mask/Gateway Addr within the
network of the same segment.
• Set an arbitrary unused address for Gateway Addr even if
Gateway does not exist. It is not possible to disable the Gateway
Addr.
•Change all IP addresses regarding the system, the server and the
resource network address by using the EXPRESSSCOPE(R)
monitor when changing the subnet of the IP address. If some
different subnet masks exist, it is impossible to do network
access for BMC at all.
•When setting a network, conflict check of IP address is executed
for 10-20 seconds. During the check it is not possible to set the
other network newly. Wait for a moment until the check is done.
•While setting the network or operating the system, the conflict
check of IP address is executed periodically. If any confliction is
detected, the IP address and its IP mask will be treated as
invalid,=0.0.0.0. After removing the factor of the confliction, set
the network again.
•If the management firmware rebooted, the cause might be the
flooding, broadcast storming, on the LAN network to which the
MGM is connected.
•If the management firmware detected the flooding, broadcast
storming, the management firmware reboots itself. During the
reboot,may take 3 minutes, it is impossible to boot the system or
handle any errors and failures.

BIOS Setup
This section describes how to set the Basic Input Output System (BIOS).
When installing this server or adding/removing options, understand the descriptions provided
here thoroughly to perform the setting properly.
System BIOS -SETUPSETUP is a utility to set the basic hardware of this server. This utility can be executed without the
dedicated utility as it is installed as a standard in the flash memory of this server.
It is usually unnecessary to use SETUP as the contents to be set with SETUP are set to the most
standard and optimal state for this server before shipment. Use SETUP as necessary for the
following cases.
Depending on the OS, BIOS settings are needed to be changed from the default settings.
Referring to appendix C “Settings for each OS”, change the BIOS settings so that it is suitable for
the OS which is being installed.
IMPORTANT:
• SETUP operation should be performed by a system
administrator.
• Password can be set in the SETUP operation. There are 2 levels
of passwords, “Supervisor” and “User”. All the items can be
changed when accessing SETUP with a “Supervisor” level
password.
When a “Supervisor” password is set, the items whose settings
are changeable with “User” level password are limited.
• Do not set a password before installing OS (Operating System).
• Some items (menu) are not specifically explained in this Guide.
These items are set to the optimal parameter for operation before
shipment. Do not change the items whose explanations are not
given in this Guide. Proper operation of this server cannot be
guaranteed or it may cause failure of this server.
• The latest version of BIOS utility is installed in this server. Thus,
the screen for settings may differ from the contents explained in
this Guide. For setting items, refer to online help or contact the
maintenance service company.

RAID System Configuration
This section describes how to use the internal hard disk drives as a RAID System using the RAID
Controller (MegaRAID).
For more information about the optional RAID Controller, refer to the documents provided with
the optional Products.
RAID
Overview of the RAID System
What is RAID?
RAID is an abbreviation for "Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks". The RAID technology
allows several hard disk drives (HDD) to be handled collectively.
RAID can configure several HDDs as a single array (disk group) to operate the HDDs effectively.
This can bring higher performance than a single HDD of a large capacity.
The RAID Controller (MegaRAID) has a feature to divide a single disk group into several logical
drives (virtual disks). Operating system recognizes these virtual disks as if it were a single hard
disk drive. Operating system accesses to more than one hard disk drive configuring a disk group
in parallel.
Some RAID levels can recover data from remaining data and parity by using rebuild feature if an
error occurs in a single HDD. This can provide high reliability for the system.
314
Hardware
RAID Levels
The record mode enabling the RAID feature includes several levels. Among the levels, the
RAID Controller (MegaRAID) supports RAID levels 0, 1,5,6,10 and 50.
The number of hard disk drives required to create a disk group varies depending on the RAID
level as shown in the table below.

NOTE:
For details of the RAID levels, refer to "RAID Levels" described
later in this chapter.
Disk Group
A disk group is configured with more than one HDDs.
The allowable number of disk groups is equal to the number of HDDs.
The figure below shows a sample configuration. The three HDDs are connected to the RAID
Controller (MegaRAID), creating one disk group (DG).
315
Hardware
Virtual Disk
Virtual disk is a logical drive defined in disk group. It is recognized as a physical drive by OS. The
allowable number of virtual disks is up to 16 per disk group, or up to 64 per controller.
The figure below shows a sample configuration in which the RAID Controller (MegaRAID) is
connected with three HDDs, creating one Disk Group. Two RAID5 virtual disks (VD) are defined
in the Disk Group.
Parity
The parity means redundant data. A single set of redundant data is created from the data saved
in more than one HDD.
The created redundant data is used for data recovery when a HDD is defected.
Hot-Swap
The hot-swap enables a HDD to be removed (or replaced) under system operation.
Hot Spare
The hot-spare is prepared as an auxiliary HDD substituting for a defected HDD included in a disk
group which is configured at a redundant RAID level. Detecting a HDD fault, the system
disconnects the HDD (or makes it offline) and starts rebuild using the hot-spare.
NOTE:
For standby rebuild (rebuild using hot-spares), refer to "Features
of RAID Controller (MegaRAID)".

RAID0
In RAID0, data to be recorded is distributed to HDDs. The mode is called "striping".
In the figure below, data is recorded in stripe 1 (disk 1), stripe 2 (disk 2), and stripe 3 (disk 3)… in
the order. Because RAID0 allows all HDDs to be accessed collectively, it can provide the best
disk access performance.
IMPORTANT:
RAID0 cannot have data redundancy. If a HDD is defected, the data
saved in the HDD cannot be recovered.

RAID1
In the RAID1 level, data saved in a HDD is written to another HDD without change. The mode is
called "mirroring".
When data is written onto a single HDD, the same data is written onto another HDD. If either of
the HDDs is defected, the other HDD containing the same data can substitute for the defected
HDD. Thus the system can continue to operate without interruption.

RAID5
In RAID5, data is distributed to HDDs by striping and, at the same time, the parity (redundant
data) is distributed to the HDDs. This mode is called "striping with distributed parity".
Each of stripe x, stripe x+1, and parity (x, x+1) created from stripe x and stripe x+1 is written onto
a specific HDD. Accordingly, the total capacity assigned to the parity is just the same as the
capacity of a single HDD. If any one of the HDDs configuring a logical drive is defected, data is
still available with no problems.

RAID6
RAID 6 extends RAID 5 by adding an additional parity block (Q) created by different calculation
method such as weighting by some factor, and thus uses block-level striping with two parity
blocks distributed across all the member disks. This mode is called "striping with duplex and
distributed parity". Accordingly, the total capacity assigned to the parity is just the same as the
capacity of two HDDs. If two of the HDDs configuring a logical drive are defective, data is still
available.

Features of RAID Controller (MegaRAID)
This section describes the features of the RAID Controller (MegaRAID).
Rebuild
If a HDD is defected, the rebuild feature can recover the data in the defe
Manual Rebuild
The manual rebuild can be performed by using WebBIOS or Universal RAID Utility, the
management utility of the RAID Controller (MegaRAID). Select a HDD and start the rebuild
manually.
Auto Rebuild
The RAID Controller (MegaRAID) can automatically start the rebuild without use of any utility
such as Universal RAID Utility.
The auto rebuild includes two types as follows:
● Standby rebuild
Automatic rebuild by using hot-spares. In the configuration including hot-spares, the
rebuild is performed automatically if a HDD assigned to a virtual disk is defected.
● Hot-swap rebuild
Automatic rebuild by hot-swapping defected HDD.
Important
When executing Rebuild, note that
* Use the new HDD which has the same capacity, the same performance(rpm), and
the same specification as the old one which is replaced because of a
failure/error.
* While Rebuild, the system perforamance might be down.
* While Rebuild, don’t shut down or reboot the system.
If the power was OFF accidentally while Rebuild, Power ON the system as soon
as possible. Then Rebuild will be restarted automatically.
* More than 90 seconds interval is required between the timing of removing the
old HDD and the timing of inserting the new one.
* If Hot-swap rebuild does not work well,try Manual rebuild.

Hardware
Patrol Read
The patrol read gives the read & verify test in the entire area of HDDs. It can be performed
for all HDDs assigned to virtual disks and hot-spares.
The Patrol Read allows subsequent defects of HDDs to be detected and repaired.
For HDDs configuring redundant virtual disks or those assigned to hot-spares, error sectors
detected during Patrol Read can be repaired.
IMPORTANT:
Note the following for the patrol read:
●To change settings of Patrol Read, use Universal RAID Utility.
●If the system is restarted while running Patrol Read, Patrol Read
resumes from that point.
Consustency Check
The Consistency Check is used to check consistency among virtual drives. It is available for
redundant virtual drives except for RAID0.
Consistency Check can be performed through WebBIOS or Universal RAID Utility.
Consistency Check performs not only consistency check but also repair of error sectors.
Accordingly, it can be used as preventive maintenance.
IMPORTANT:
Note the following for Consistency Check:
● During Consistency Check, the processing rate is decreased due to
heavy load.
● If the system is restarted, the Consistency Check is aborted.
However, the Consistency Check resumes after restart.
● For scheduled execution of Consistency Check, use WebBIOS.
323
Hardware
Background Initialize
The Background Initialize is automatically executed when RAID5 virtual disk is created in the
disk group composing of five or more HDDs.
The Background Initialize performs the parity generation processing in the background to the
area not initialized. The processing is equivalent to that of Consistency Check.
However, the Background Initialize is not performed in the following cases.
●Full Initialize has already been executed and completed normally before executing
Background Initialize.
(*) Full Initialize is a function to clear the entire area of a virtual disk with "0".
●Consistency Check has already been executed and completed normally before executing
Background Initialize.
●Rebuild has already been executed and completed normally before executing Background
Initialize (for RAID5 only).

IMPORTANT:
Note the following for the Reconstruction:
● Be sure to make backup copy of data and perform Consistency
Check before starting Reconstruction.
● The Reconstruction is disabled in the configuration where several
virtual disks are defined in one disk group
● During Reconstruction, the processing rate is decreased due to
heavy load.
● The Reconstruction can be performed for the degraded virtual disk.
However, it is recommended to execute Rebuild to recover the
virtual disk, then execute Reconstruction.
● During Reconstruction, do not shutdown or reboot the server.
● In some configuration, Background Initialize may start
automatically upon completion of Reconstruction.

• Once started, Java Console is stored in the cache of PC and is executed
from the cache the next time at starting. To clear cache, go to [Control Panel]
->[Java] -> [Basic] tab ->[Temporary Internet Files].
• Since Java Console works as a process independent from the browser, Java
Console is still usable even if the browser is terminated.
• If two Java Console are started on IE8,
don’t set anything for the trusted site for [Internet option]->[Security]
set IP address of Server Web console for [Internet option]->[Local Intranet]

Hardware
IMPORTANT:
•If A1080a-D model, it is necessary to execute “Enable” of
“Reset Parma MGM” twice when restoring the factory default
setting of the management firmware.
Resource WEB console is a common part of Server1 and
Server2, and it exists in either of them, The existence part is
decided at random.
“Reset Param MGM” clears the SG information of one MGM
working on the resource web console.
• By the first execution of "Reset Param MGM", SG information
of one MGM working on the resource web console is cleared,
SP of the MGM is reset, and the failover of the Resource
console function occur.
Because Resource Web Console will be disconnected once,
connect it again.
• By the second execution of “Reset Param MGM”,it is possible
to clear the SG information of the other MGM.
•Don’t use “Restore Default Memu”, unless the maintenance
person requests.

Note
■ Note on disk array
For disk array device, it is controlled as the test target device per each logical device.
System diagnostics sets the upper limit of the test target devices up to one logical disk per
one port of the card
More than one logical disk per one port are not displayed on the test menu.
■ Note on tape library
For tape library, it is controlled as the test target device in each LUN.
System diagnostics sets the upper limit of the test target LUN up to 16 per one tape library.
More than 16 LUNs are not displayed on the test menu.
Before the test for assembled type MT device is executed, move the media from the
magazine to the drive since it is not allowed moving the drive from the magazine.
■ Note on executing LAN card loopback tests of multiple ports simultaneously with the system
diagnostics
When LAN card loopback tests are executed simultaneously for multiple ports, the count
may not proceed from “1” and the test result may become “fail.” This is most likely caused
by a special test mode setting of packet loopback inside of the card, which is not used on OS
operation.
When the round does not proceed from “1” and the test result is “fail,” end the test
temporarily and execute the test again. The card is judged as failure only when “fail”
occurred again on the same port.

Setting Test Ending Condition
Use <option> command to check the test ending condition.
There are two procedures for the test ending conditions. The first is ending the test by setting the
test executing time. The second is ending the test by setting the round times, the number of test
to carry out. Use <time> command to end the test by specifying the test executing time. Use
<round> command to end the test by specifying the number of test.
The following is an example of screen using the command.

When “0” is specified on test executing time or on number of test executing times in the
test ending condition, the test is executed endlessly. The initial status just after starting the
TeDoLi is endless execution by specifying the test executing time.
In the specifying test executing time, the time can be specified by the minute. Test is
repeatedly executed within the specified time (minutes). After the specified time elapses,
the test ends without repeating after the test being executed completes.
In the specifying number of test executing times, the test ends after repeating the test
specified times.
In the specifying endless test execution, the test is repeatedly executed until the test is
forcibly terminated by <term> command or until an error is detected.
Starting Test
Use <exec> command to execute the selected test.
The following is an example of screen using the command.
TeDoLi> exec
Executing the test.

Operation and Maintenance
Relocating and Storing
Follow the procedure below to relocate or store the server.
CAUTION
Observe the following instructions to use the server safely. There are risks of fire, personal
injury, or property damage. Refer to the page iii and later for more description.
● Make sure to use a lifter (an elevating machine) to lift the server for supporting the bottom
stably. If there is no lifter, carrying the server by less than four persons may cause backache.
● Do not install the server in any place other than specified.
● Do not connect/disconnect any interface cable with the power cord of the server plugged on
a power supply.
IMPORTANT:
● If the server needs to be relocated/stored due to a change in the floor
layout to a great extent, contact the sales agent.
● Make sure to make a backup copy of the important data in the hard disk.
● When moving the server with hard disk drives, make sure not to give a
shock to the hard disk drives.
● Again, it is recommended to install the server in a place keeping room
temperature for operating internal devices and the server properly.
When storing the server, keep it under storing environment conditions
(temperature: -5 to 55°C, humidity: 20% to 80%, non-condensing).
1. Eject CD/DVD media if it is inserted in the server.
2. Power off the server (power LED is off).
3. Disconnect the power cord of the server from the outlet.
4. Disconnect all the cables from the server.
5. Remove the server from the rack.
6. Use an elevating machine to move.
IMPORTANT:
Do not lift the server by grabbing the front bezel in the front of the server.
The front bezel can unlatch and the server may fall, resulting to hurt and
breakage of the server breaks.
7. Pack the server in proper way to avoid shock or shake.
Check and adjust the system clock before operating the server again after relocating or storing it. If
the system clock is largely lagging or fast after adjusting, contact the reseller or the maintenance
service company for the maintenance. If the server and the built-in optional devices are moved from a
cold place to a warm place in a short time, condensation will occur and cause malfunctions and
breakdown when they are used as they are. When you start operating these equipments again after
the transportation or the storage, make sure to wait for a sufficient period of time to use them in the
operating environment.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
XVII
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
authors' reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
XVIII
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that
whole or in part contains or is
part thereof, to be licensed as
parties under the terms of this
you distribute or publish, that in
derived from the Program or any
a whole at no charge to all third
License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Program.
XIX
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
received the program in object code or executable form with such
an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
XX
parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
the Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
XXI
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
XXII
YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
To do so, attach the following notices to the
to attach them to the start of each source file
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the
program. It is safest
to most effectively
should have at least
full notice is found.
<one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
(at your option) any later version.
This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
GNU General Public License for more details.
You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along
with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA.
Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
when it starts in an interactive mode:
Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
XXIII
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
`Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
<signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
Ty Coon, President of Vice
This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
Public License instead of this License.
