Overview
This technical update to the TruCluster Server Cluster Hardware
Configuration manual provides important information about support for the
AlphaServer ES45 with the TruCluster Server Version 5.1A product.
1.1 General Overview
The AlphaServer ES45 was recently qualified for use with the TruCluster
Server Version 5.1A product.
No TruCluster Server software release coincides with the availability
of support for the AlphaServer ES45, so this technical update adds the
AlphaServer ES45 configuration information that will appear in future
revisions of the TruCluster Server Cluster Hardware Configuration manual.
Use this technical update in conjunction with the TruCluster Server Cluster
Hardware Configuration manual.
1.2 AlphaServer ES45 Overview
The AlphaServer ES45 is a 1000 MHz follow-on to the AlphaServer ES40. It
can employ from 1 through 4 processors.
Only the ES45 Model 2 is presently supported. Other models, with different
PCI/AGP bus configurations, will follow.
A 10-slot PCI backplane provides six slots that support hot-swapping.
______________________
Note
_______________________
The Tru64 UNIX Version 5.1A operating system does not support
hot-swapping PCI modules.
The ES45 Model 2 has four PCI buses (hoses). The PCI backplane supports
four 5.0V 33-MHz PCI slots and six 3.3V 66-MHz PCI slots.
The AlphaServer ES45 is available in a tower, pedestal, and rackmount
(M-Series cabinet) configuration.

the last column) in the show config command output.
2.1.1 PCI Configuration Guidelines
Ensure that you abide by the following PCI configuration restrictions:
Hardware Requirements and Restrictions 2–1
•
PCI modules designed for 5.0V only operate in 5.0V slots (slots 3, 6,
9, and 10).
•
PCI modules designed for 3.3V only operate in 3.3V slots (slots 1, 2,
4, 5, 7, and 8).
•
Universal PCI modules can operate in either 3.3V or 5.0V slots.
•
A universal PCI module that operates at 66 MHz will only operate at 33
MHz if it is plugged into a 5.0V slot.
•
A universal PCI module that operates at 33 MHz will cause the entire
66-MHz bus to operate at 33 MHz if it is plugged into a 3.3V slot.
2.1.2 PCI Modules Supported for Cluster Operations in a TruCluster
Server Configuration
Table 2–2 lists the PCI modules that are supported on an AlphaServer
ES45 Model 2 used in TruCluster Server V5.1A cluster configurations for
shared storage and cluster communications over the cluster interconnect.
Other adapters are supported for local storage and the public network that
are not listed here. See the supported options list for information about
other supported devices.

a Although 4 KZPSA-CBs can be supported, the number of KZPBA-CB UltraSCSI host bus adapters that can
be installed depends upon the number of Memory Channel modules installed in slots 3, 6, 9, and 10.
b Four DS-KGPSA-CA Fibre Channel adapters are supported in a switched configuration; A loop
configuration is not supported in a TruCluster Server configuration.
c If you install a universal 33 Mhz PCI host bus adapter in a 3.3V 66 MHz slot (slots 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, or 8), the bus
will only operate at 33 MHz.
d Dual Memory Channel adapters must be jumpered for 128 MB.

e If you install a universal 66 Mhz PCI host bus adapter in a 5.0V 33 MHz slot (slots 3, 6, 9, or 10), the module
will only operate at 33 MHz.
f The DEGPA-TA Gigabit Ethernet adapter cannot be installed in PCI bus 1.
2.1.3 Differences in PCI Edge Connectors
The differences in PCI slots and module edge connectors prevent you from
installing a 5.0V module into a 3.3V slot.
_____________________
Caution
_____________________
Do not attempt to plug a 5.0V module into a 3.3V PCI slot; you
can damage the module or PCI backplane.
A universal PCI module, which operates at either 3.3V or 5.0V, can be
plugged into any PCI slot.
2.2 Hardware Restrictions
The following sections describe the hardware requirements and restrictions
particular to each device.
2.2.1 Member System Restrictions
The requirements for member systems in a TruCluster Server cluster are as
follows:
•
The minimum ES45 Alpha System Reference Manual (SRM) console
firmware required is V5.9-10.
You can obtain firmware information from the Compaq Web site at the
following URL: http://www.compaq.com.
In the Support column, select Software & Drivers, then in the Servers
column, select AlphaServer, then select the AlphaServer ES45 system.
•
If the cluster has any system with SRM console firmware earlier than
Version 5.7, that system may not be able to boot from a disk behind an
HSZ80, HSG60, or HSG80 controller. The member may fail to boot,
indicating "Reservation Conflict" errors.
•
TruCluster Server Version 5.1A supports eight-member cluster
configurations as follows:
Hardware Requirements and Restrictions 2–3
–
Fibre Channel: Eight-member systems may be connected to common
storage over Fibre Channel in a fabric (switch) configuration.
–
Parallel SCSI: Only four of the member systems may be connected to
any one SCSI bus, but you can have multiple SCSI buses connected
to different sets of nodes, and the sets of nodes may overlap. We
recommend you use a DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub with fair
arbitration enabled when connecting four-member systems to a
common SCSI bus using RAID array controllers.
Illustrations of an externally terminated eight-node cluster are
shown in the chapter about configuring an eight-member cluster
using externally terminated shared SCSI buses in Cluster Hardware
Configuration. The cluster shown is more appropriate for high
performance technical computing (HPTC) customers who are looking
for performance instead of availability.
2.2.2 Fibre Channel Restrictions
For the latest information about supported hardware, see the AlphaServer
ES45 supported options list.
The following requirements and restrictions apply to the use of Fibre
Channel with TruCluster Server Version 5.1A:
•
The AlphaServer ES45 only supports the KGPSA-CA PCI-to-Fibre
Channel host bus adapters. A maximum of four adapters is supported.
•
Fibre Channel is only supported in a fabric configuration; TruCluster
Server does not support an arbitrated loop configuration. A
non-TruCluster Server configuration supports one KGPSA-CA in an
arbitrated loop configuration.
•
The HSG60 and HSG80 require Array Control Software (ACS) Version
8.6 or later.
•
Eight member systems may be connected to common storage over Fibre
Channel in a fabric (switch) configuration.
•
The only Fibre Channel switches supported are the DS-DSGGA-AA/AB
8/16 port, DS-DSGGB-AA/AB 8/16 port, and DS-DSGGC-AA/AB 8/16
port Fibre Channel switches.
_____________________
Note
_____________________
Although the ES45 was qualified with the DS-DSGGA-AA/AB
Fibre Channel switches, they are not listed in the ES45
QuickSpecs or supported options list because they have gone
end-of-life.
2–4 Hardware Requirements and Restrictions
•
The DSGGA, DSGGB, and DSGGC Fibre Channel switches support
both shortwave (GBIC-SW) and longwave (GBIC-LW) Gigabit Interface
Converter (GBIC) modules. Seven of the eight DSGGC-AA ports are
fixed shortwave optical transceivers. Only one DSGGC-AA port is
configured as a removable GBIC. It may be shortwave or longwave.
The GBIC-SW module supports 50-micron, multimode fiber cables with
the standard subscriber connector (SC) connector in lengths up to 500
meters (1640.4 feet). It also supports 62.5-micron multimode fiber
cables in lengths up to 200 meters (656.2 feet). The GBIC-LW supports
9-micron, single-mode fiber cables with the SC connector in lengths up to
10 kilometers (6.2 miles).
The KGPSA-CA PCI-to-Fibre Channel host bus adapter and the HSG60
and HSG80 RAID controller support the 50-micron Gigabit Link Module
(GLM) for fiber connections. Therefore, only the 50-micron multimode
fiber-optic cable is supported between the KGPSA and switch and
between the switch and HSG60 or HSG80 for cluster configurations.
You must install GBIC-SW GBICs in the Fibre Channel switches for
communication between the switches and KGPSA or HSG60/HSG80.
•
The HSG60 and HSG80 supports transparent and multiple-bus failover
mode when used in a TruCluster Server Version 5.1A configuration.
Multiple-bus failover is recommended.
•
For other Fibre Channel restrictions, see the hardware requirements
and restrictions chapter in Cluster Hardware Configuration.
2.2.3 Memory Channel Restrictions
The Memory Channel interconnect is one method used for cluster
communications between the member systems.
Ensure that you abide by the following Memory Channel restrictions:
•
The AlphaServer ES45 systems only support Memory Channel 2 (MC2)
hardware.
•
The Memory Channel adapter is a 5V 33-MHz module and is restricted to
PCI bus 0 (slots 3, 6, 9, and 10). Installing a redundant Memory Channel
adapter places both Memory Channel adapters on the same PCI bus.
•
If redundant Memory Channel adapters are used with an ES45, they
must be jumpered for 128 MB and not the default of 512 MB. If there is
only one Memory Channel adapter on the PCI bus, it may be jumpered
for 512 MB.
•
An ES45 system with dual Memory Channel adapters cannot be
added to an existing cluster that has Memory Channel adapters
jumpered for 512 MB. The ES45 cannot join the cluster. The
Hardware Requirements and Restrictions 2–5
startup error message on the ES45 jumpered for 128 MB states:
panic: MC2 adapter has too little memory
See Section 3.5 if you intend to add an ES45 system with dual Memory
Channel adapters jumpered for 128 MB into an existing cluster with
Memory Channel adapters jumpered for 512 MB.
•
The Memory Channel API is not supported for data transfers larger than
8 KB when loopback mode is enabled in two member clusters configured
in virtual hub mode.
See the TruCluster Server Version 5.1A QuickSpecs for more information.
•
A mixed-version dual Memory Channel configuration (MC1 and MC2
or MC1.5 and MC2) is not supported in a cluster containing an ES45
because the ES45 only supports MC2.
•
If you configure a cluster with a single rail Memory Channel in standard
hub mode and the hub fails or is turned off, every cluster member panics.
They panic because no member can see any of the other cluster members
over the Memory Channel interface. A quorum disk does not help in this
case, because no system is given the opportunity to obtain ownership
of the quorum disk and survive.
To prevent this situation in standard hub mode, install a second Memory
Channel rail. A hub failure on one rail will cause failover to the other rail.
When the Memory Channel is set up in standard hub mode, the Memory
Channel hub must be visible to each member’s Memory Channel adapter.
If the hub is powered off, no system is able to boot.
•
If a TruCluster Server cluster configuration utilizes multiple Memory
Channel adapters in standard hub mode, the Memory Channel adapters
must be connected to separate Memory Channel hubs. The first Memory
Channel adapter (mca0) in each system must be connected to one
Memory Channel hub. The second Memory Channel adapter (mcb0) in
each system must be connected to a second Memory Channel hub. Also,
each Memory Channel adapter on one system must be connected to the
same linecard in each Memory Channel hub.
•
The maximum length of an MC2 BN39B link cable is 10 meters (32.8
feet).
•
You can use a CCMFB optical converter in conjunction with the MC2
CCMAB host bus adapter or a CCMLB hub line card to increase the
distance between systems.
If you use a CCMFB Memory Channel optical converter module, which is
a 5.0V module, it must be plugged into PCI slot 3, 6, 9, or 10.
The BN34R fiber-optic cable, which is used to connect two CCMFB
optical converters, is available in 10-meter (32.8-foot) (BN34R-10) and
2–6 Hardware Requirements and Restrictions
31-meter (101.7-foot) (BN34R-31) lengths. Customers may provide their
own fiber-optic cables to achieve greater separation of systems.
•
Always examine a Memory Channel link cable for bent or broken pins.
Be sure that you do not bend or break any pins when you connect or
disconnect a cable.
2.2.4 KZPBA-CB UltraSCSI Host Bus Adapter Restrictions
KZPBA-CB UltraSCSI adapters have the following restrictions:
•
The KZPBA-CB UltraSCSI host bus adapter is a 5V 32-bit/33-MHz
module and therefore is restricted to PCI bus 0 (slots 3, 6, 9, and 10).
•
Only four KZPBA-CBs are supported. If a Memory Channel module
or any other modules are installed in PCI 0, the maximum number of
KZPBA-CB modules is reduced by the number of other modules installed
in PCI 0 slots.
•
The KZPBA-CB requires ISP 1020/1040 firmware Version 5.57 or higher,
which is available with the system SRM console firmware on the Alpha
Systems Firmware 5.3 Update CD-ROM (or later).
•
The maximum length of any differential SCSI bus segment is 25 meters
(82 feet), including the length of the SCSI bus cables and SCSI bus
internal to the SCSI adapter, hub, or storage device. A SCSI bus may
have more than one SCSI bus segment.
•
See the KZPBA-CB UltraSCSI Storage Adapter Module Release Notes
for more information.

Installing an AlphaServer ES45 into a
TruCluster Server Configuration
3.1 Preparing the AlphaServer ES45 for a TruCluster Server
Configuration
The AlphaServer ES45 has PCI slot restrictions that must be adhered to,
but otherwise, creating a cluster of ES45 systems, or adding an ES45 system
to an existing cluster, is basically the same as any AlphaServer system
supported in a TruCluster Server configuration.
Cluster hardware installation can be divided into two steps:
•
Installing and configuring the cluster interconnect
•
Installing and configuring shared storage
______________________
Note
_______________________
If you plan to add an ES45 with dual Memory Channel adapters
(which must be jumpered for 128 MB) into an existing cluster
with Memory Channel adapters jumpered for 512 MB, you must
reset the jumpers on the existing Memory Channel adapters to
128 MB before booting the ES45 into the cluster.
The following sections provide information about installing an AlphaServer
ES45 into a TruCluster Server configuration.
3.2 Installing and Configuring the Cluster Interconnect
A TruCluster Server configuration requires a cluster interconnect connecting
all cluster members together. The cluster connect can be provided by
Memory Channel (Memory Channel 2) hardware or a private local area
network (LAN):
•
To install MC2 hardware as the cluster interconnect, review the
restrictions listed in Section 2.2.3 and see the chapter about setting
Installing an AlphaServer ES45 into a TruCluster Server Configuration 3–1
up a Memory Channel cluster interconnect in Cluster Hardware
Configuration.
•
To install and configure a local area network as the cluster interconnect,
see the Cluster LAN Interconnect manual.
______________________
Note
_______________________
You may save time if you install host bus adapters for shared
storage, cluster interconnect cards (either Memory Channel or
Ethernet cards for a private LAN), and extra Ethernet cards all
at the same time.
3.3 Installing and Configuring Shared Storage
The shared storage for your cluster can be any of three different technologies:
•
Fibre Channel (HSG60 and HSG80 RAID array controllers).
•
UltraSCSI components (HSZ70, HSZ80, or RAID Array 3000 with an
HSZ22 controller connected to a DWZZH-03 or DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI
hub). Although the UltraSCSI BA356 could be considered in this group,
it is not discussed here because it cannot be connected to an UltraSCSI
hub.
•
Non-UltraSCSI components (BA350 and BA356). The UltraSCSI BA356
is discussed in this group.
The following sections provide more information on a TruCluster Server
configuration using each of the three categories of storage.

Storage
If your shared storage consists of HSG60 or HSG80 RAID array controllers
connected to a storage array network (SAN) and KGPSA-CA Fibre Channel
host bus adapter, review the restrictions in Section 2.2.2, see Section 3.4,
and see the chapter about using Fibre Chanel storage in Cluster Hardware
Configuration for installation information.
Figure 3–1 shows an example of a no-single-point-of-failure (NSPOF) Fibre
Channel configuration using HSG80 RAID array controllers. Either a
Memory Channel interface or a private LAN can be used as the cluster
interconnect.

3.3.2 TruCluster Server Configuration Using UltraSCSI Devices for
Storage
If your shared storage consists of disks attached to an UltraSCSI RAID array
controller (HSZ70, HSZ80, RAID array 3000) connected to a DWZZH-03 or
DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub and KZPBA-CB UltraSCSI host bus adapters,
see Section 3.4. Also, in Cluster Hardware Configuration, for installation
procedures, see the chapter about using UltraSCSI hardware to configure a
cluster and, for example configurations, see the chapter about shared SCSI
bus requirements and configurations using UltraSCSI hardware.
Figure 3–2 shows an example of a TruCluster Server configuration using
UltraSCSI devices for storage.

3.3.3 TruCluster Server Configuration Using Non-UltraSCSI Devices
for Storage
If your shared storage consists of disks in BA350, BA356, or UltraSCSI
BA356 storage units, or non-UltraSCSI RAID array controllers (HSZ40
and HSZ50) connected to a KZPBA-CB UltraSCSI host bus adapter on
a SCSI bus using external termination, see Section 3.4. Also, in Cluster
Hardware Configuration, for installation procedures, see the chapter about
configuring systems for external termination or radial connections to
non-UltraSCSI devices, and, for example configurations, the chapter about
system configurations using external termination or radial connections to
non-UltraSCSI devices.

3.4 Displaying Adapters with the show Console Commands
The Cluster Hardware Configuration manual does not have any examples
that include the AlphaServer ES45. This section provides examples of using
the show config and show device console commands to display ES45
system configuration information.
Example 3–1 and Example 3–2 show a cluster configuration that uses a
shared SCSI bus for storage. Example 3–3 and Example 3–4 show a cluster
configuration that uses Fibre Channel for shared storage.
Example 3–1 shows the output from the show config console command
on an AlphaServer ES45 system in a cluster using a SCSI bus for shared
storage.

3.5 Adding an ES45 with Dual Memory Channel Adapters to
a Cluster with Memory Channel Adapters Jumpered
for 512 MB
If your ES45 has dual Memory Channel adapters, they must be jumpered
for 128 MB because they are on the same PCI bus. Therefore, you cannot
add the ES45 to an existing cluster if the Memory Channel adapters of the
existing cluster member systems are jumpered for 512 MB.
Installing an AlphaServer ES45 into a TruCluster Server Configuration 3–13
To add an ES45 with dual Memory Channel adapters into an existing cluster
with Memory Channel adapters jumpered for 512 MB, follow this procedure:
1.
Shut down all cluster member systems except one.
____________________
Notes
____________________
Do not shut down a cluster member that has an application
with restricted placement policy unless the member that will
not be shut down is on the hosting list for the application.
See the Cluster Highly Available Applications manual for
more information.
Modify the quorum votes as necessary to support a one-node
cluster. The Cluster Administration manual describes
how quorum is calculated and how cluster membership is
maintained.
2.
On each cluster member that has been shut down, power off the system
and move Memory Channel jumper J3 to pins 1 and 2 to select 128
MB. See the chapter about setting up a Memory Channel cluster
interconnect in Cluster Hardware Configuration for more information.
3.
Power up, but do not boot, each cluster member that has had the
Memory Channel jumper modified.
4.
Shut down the last cluster member system.
5.
Boot one of the cluster members that has had its Memory Channel
adapter re-jumpered for 128 MB.
____________________
Note
_____________________
Readjust quorum votes and reset the placement policies as
needed to maintain a one member cluster with the booted
system.
6.
Repeat step 2 for the last cluster member system.
7.
Power on the last cluster member system and boot the remaining
original cluster member systems.
8.
Use the clu_add_member utility to add the ES45 system to the cluster.

jumpers on the other cluster member systems, the ES45
will not boot into the cluster. A system jumpered for 128
MB cannot join the cluster. You would receive a startup
error message on the system jumpered for 128 MB:
panic: MC2 adapter has too little memory
9.
Boot the ES45 system into the cluster.
