Configuring BIOS Settings
This section describes how to view and/or modify the Basic Input Output System
(BIOS) settings. For a description of BIOS Setup screens, see “BIOS Setup Screens
Summary” on page 18.
The BIOS has a Setup utility stored in the BIOS flash memory. The Setup utility
reports system information and can be used to configure the BIOS settings. The
configured data is provided with context-sensitive Help and is stored in the system's
battery-backed CMOS RAM. If the configuration stored in the CMOS RAM is
invalid, the BIOS settings will default to the original state specified at the factory.
The BIOS Setup utility contains seven menu screens, which are displayed in the
following order: Main, Advanced, PCI/PnP, Boot, Security, Chipset, and Exit.
Use the left and right arrow keys to move sequentially back and forth through the
seven screens. Fields that can be reconfigured are displayed in color. All other fields
are not configurable. Use the up and down arrow keys to scroll through a screen's
menu. Use the Tab key to move back and forth across columns.
Changing the Configuration of a BIOS Menu Item
You can change the BIOS configuration using several different interfaces:
■
Use a USB keyboard and mouse, and a VGA monitor connected directly to the
server.
■
Use the remote video console of the ILOM Service Processor and redirect the
server’s console output. See “Redirecting Console Output” on page 121

Resetting ILOM and BIOS Passwords
This procedure describes how to reset the Administrator password (root password)
for the ILOM Service Processor to the default after it has been set once during initial
setup.
Note – This procedure simultaneously removes any BIOS password that was set.
1. Shut down the server to standby power mode by using a ballpoint pen or other
stylus to press and release the recessed Power button on the front panel.
See “Powering Off the Server” on page 14.
2. Disconnect the AC or DC power cords from the server.
Caution – Before handling components, attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD)
wrist strap to the grounding post that is built into the rear of the chassis (see
FIGURE 1-3 for the location). The system’s printed circuit boards and hard disk drives
contain components that are extremely sensitive to static electricity.
3. If the server is in a rack, slide it far enough from the rack so that you can
remove the cover. If you cannot safely view and access the motherboard,
remove the server from the rack.
4. Remove the cover from the server.
See “Removing the Top Cover” on page 33.
5. Install the shorting jumper across the J12 header pins.
See FIGURE 2-6 for the J12 jumper location. The function of the J12 jumper is to
clear the ILOM Service Processor (SP) password.
6. Reinstall the cover to the server.
7. Reconnect AC or DC power cords to the server.
The server powers up to standby power mode, indicated when the Power/OK
LED on the front panel is flashing.
20
Netra X4200 M2 Server Service Manual • May 2007
8. Return the server to main power mode by using a ballpoint pen or other stylus
to press and release the recessed Power button on the front panel.
Note – You must allow the entire server, not just the SP, to reboot to main power
mode to complete the password reset. This is because the state of the J12 jumper
cannot be determined without the host CPU running. Wait until the end of POST,
when you see the CMOS password cleared by jumper message, after which
both the BIOS and SP passwords are reset.
■
The ILOM SP password is reset to the default, changeme.
■
The BIOS password is also reset by a separate operation performed by the
BIOS when it discovers the presence of the J12 jumper. The BIOS password is
not reset to changeme, it is removed so that there is no longer a BIOS
password set. If you had a BIOS password set, you are no longer prompted for
one.
9. Log in to the ILOM web GUI using root as the user name and changeme as
the password.
Refer to the Integrated Lights Out Manager Administration Guide (819-1160).
10. Change the default password to a password of your choice.
11. Repeat Step 1 through Step 8 to remove the J12 jumper. Remove the jumper in
Step 5 rather than inserting it.
Note – If you do not remove the J12 jumper, the ILOM SP and BIOS passwords will
be reset every time you power-cycle the server.

Using the Clear CMOS Jumper
You can use the Clear CMOS jumper to clear the server’s CMOS settings in the event
of a system hang. For example, if the server hangs because of incorrect settings and
will not boot, use this jumper to invalidate the settings and reboot with defaults.
1. Shut down the server to standby power mode by using a ballpoint pen or other
stylus to press and release the recessed Power button on the front panel.
See “Powering Off the Server” on page 14.
2. Disconnect the AC or DC power cords from the server.

Caution – Before handling components, attach an ESD wrist strap to the grounding
post that is built into the rear of the chassis (see FIGURE 1-3 for the location). The
system’s printed circuit boards and hard disk drives contain components that are
extremely sensitive to static electricity.
3. If the server is in a rack, slide it far enough from the rack so that you can
remove the cover. If you cannot safely view and access the motherboard,
remove the server from the rack.
4. Remove the top cover from the server.
See “Removing the Top Cover” on page 33.
5. Remove the PCI tray.
See “Removing the PCI Tray and PCI-E Ribbon Cables” on page 34.
6. Install the shorting jumper across the Clear CMOS header pins.
See FIGURE 2-6 for the Clear CMOS jumper location at J9.
7. Wait 10 seconds, then remove the shorting jumper.
This jumper removes battery power from the SouthBridge chipset where the
CMOS settings are stored, thereby removing the CMOS settings.
8. Reinstall the cover to the server.
9. Reconnect AC or DC power cords to the server.
The server powers up to standby power mode, indicated when the Power/OK
LED on the front panel is flashing.
Using the Reset and NMI Switches
Caution – Do not use the Reset and NMI switches unless you are instructed to do
so by authorized Sun service personnel.
The Non-Maskable Interrupt (NMI) switch (SW3 on the motherboard) sends an NMI
order to the CPUs, which is used by Field Service for debugging activities at the
request of Service personnel. The button for this switch can be pushed by inserting a
paper clip or similar stylus through the hole provided on the rear of the chassis (see
FIGURE 2-7, which shows the NMI Switch location on the Netra X4200 M2 server).

Replacing a Hard Drive
The hard disk drives in the server are hot-pluggable, but this capability depends on
how the hard drives are configured. To hot-plug a drive you must take the drive
offline (prevent any applications from accessing it, and remove the logical software
links to it) before you can safely remove it.
The following situations inhibit the ability to perform hot-plugging of a drive:
■
The hard drive provides the operating system, and the operating system is not
mirrored on another drive.
■
The hard drive cannot be logically isolated from the online operations of the
server.
If your drive falls into the conditions listed above, you must shut down the system
before you replace the hard drive. See “Powering Off the Server” on page 28.
Note – Replacing a hard drive does not require removing the server from a rack.
Nor does the procedure require removing the top cover of the server.
Removing a Hard Drive
1. Press the green tabs on either side of the bezel and pull the bezel forward and
down (FIGURE 3-16).

■
If you are replacing the hard drive, continue to “Installing a Hard Drive” on
page 46.
■
If you are not replacing the hard drive, perform administrative tasks to
configure the server to operate without the hard drive.
Installing a Hard Drive
1. Remove the replacement hard drive from its packaging and place the drive on
an antistatic mat.
2. Align the replacement drive to the drive slot.
The hard drive is physically addressed according to the slot in which it is
installed. See FIGURE 3-21. It is important to install a replacement drive in the
same slot as the drive that was removed.
3. Slide the drive into the bay until it is fully seated (FIGURE 3-21).

Netra X4200 M2 DIMM Population Rules
The DIMM population rules for the Netra X4200 M2 server are as follows:
72
■
The Netra X4200 M2 server uses only DDR2 DIMMs.
■
Each CPU can support a maximum of four DDR2 DIMMs.
■
Each pair of DIMMs must be identical (same manufacturer and capacity).
■
The DIMM slots are paired and the DIMMs must be installed in pairs (A1 and B1,
A0 and B0). The memory sockets are colored black or white to indicate which
slots are paired by matching colors.
Netra X4200 M2 Server Service Manual • May 2007

Replacing a CPU and Heatsink
Follow these steps to remove and replace a CPU and its heatsink in a Netra X4200
M2 server.
Supported components and their part numbers are subject to change over time. For
the most up-to-date list of replaceable components for these servers, see the
following URL:
http://sunsolve.sun.com/handbook_pub/Systems/
Caution – Some AMD CPUs are released as Special Editions, which might differ in
wattage from non-Special Edition versions of the CPU. Do not mix Special Edition
CPUs with non-Special Edition versions. Always make sure that all CPUs in the
server have the same part number.
Removing a Netra X4200 M2 CPU and Heatsink
1. Power off the server as described in “Powering Off the Server” on page 28.
2. If the server is in a rack, slide it far enough from the rack so that you can
remove the main cover. If you cannot safely view and access the component,
remove the server from the rack.
3. Remove the top cover as described in “Removing the Top Cover” on page 33.
4. Identify which CPU and heatsink you are replacing.
The designation of the two CPUs in the server is shown in FIGURE 3-53. There is a
fault LED on the motherboard for each CPU (see FIGURE 3-53 for the LED
location):
76
■
LED is off: CPU is operating properly.

Installing a Netra X4200 M2 CPU and Heatsink
1. Install the new CPU and heatsink:
Note – Mixing CPU speeds or mixing dual-core CPUs with single-core CPUs is not
supported. Use two identical CPUs in your server.
a. Unpack the new CPU and heatsink.
b. Ensure that the CPU socket release lever and retainer plate are in the fully
open position.
c. Align the CPU in the socket as shown in FIGURE 3-57.
Note – Use the alignment keys in the CPU socket to match the alignment notches on
the sides of the CPU. See inset of FIGURE 3-57.
d. Gently set the CPU onto the pins in the socket.
80
Netra X4200 M2 Server Service Manual • May 2007
e. When the CPU is fully seated in the socket, pivot the hinged retainer plate
down onto the top of the CPU.
f. Pivot the release lever down and into the locked position, at the side of the
socket.
The release lever must lock down the retainer plate as you close the lever. See
FIGURE 3-56 for a view of how the lever locks down the edge of the plate.
g. If you are reinstalling an existing CPU or heatsink, use an alcohol pad to
clean all old thermal grease from the component surface.
Caution – Ensure that the thermal grease in the syringe supplied with the CPU is
pliable and not stiff. If your syringe of grease has aged, the grease might be too stiff
to adequately spread out and ensure thermal conductance.
h. Use one syringe of thermal grease (0.5 g) to carefully apply grease to the top
of the CPU in three lines in the pattern shown in FIGURE 3-58.
CPU surface
Lines of thermal grease
FIGURE 3-58
Required Pattern for Thermal Grease Application
2. Turn the heatsink upright and reinstall the four springs and mounting bolts.
Caution – Avoid moving the heatsink after it has contacted the top of the CPU. Too
much movement could disturb the layer of thermal grease, leading to component
damage.
3. Carefully position and align the heatsink over the CPU.
Chapter 3
Maintaining the Netra X4200 M2 Server
81
Note – The heatsink is not symmetrical and it must be aligned before you place it
on the CPU. Note that the half of the Sun Microsystems logo imprinted on the top of
the heatsink will create a complete logo when correctly aligned with the adjacent
heatsink.
4. Lower the heatsink onto the CPU, aligning the mounting bolts with their holes
on the motherboard.
5. Alternately tighten the four heatsink mounting screws 180-degrees at a time
until each spring is completely compressed.

BIOS POST Codes
Power-On Self-Test (POST)
The system BIOS provides a rudimentary power-on self-test (POST). The basic
devices required for the server to operate are checked, memory is tested, the LSI
1064 disk controller and attached disks are probed and enumerated, and the onboard
network controllers are initialized.
The progress of the self-test is indicated by a series of POST codes.
These codes are displayed at the bottom right corner of the system’s VGA screen
(once the self-test has progressed far enough to initialize the video monitor).
However, the codes are displayed as the self-test runs and scroll off of the screen too
quickly to be read. An alternate method of displaying the POST codes is to redirect
the output of the console to a serial port (see “Redirecting Console Output” on
page 121).
The message, BMC Responding is displayed at the end of POST.
Redirecting Console Output
Use these instructions to access the service processor and redirect the console output
so that the BIOS POST codes can be read.
1. Initialize the BIOS Setup utility by pressing the F2 key while the system is
performing the power-on self-test (POST).
2. When the BIOS Main Menu screen is displayed, select Advanced.
121
3. When the Advanced Settings screen is displayed, select IPMI 2.0
Configuration.
4. When the IPMI 2.0 Configuration screen is displayed, select the LAN
Configuration menu item.
5. Select the IP Address menu item.
The service processor’s IP address is displayed using the following format:
Current IP address in BMC: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
6. Start a web browser and type the service processor’s IP address in the
browser’s URL field.
7. When you are prompted, type a user name and password as follows:
User name: root
Password: changeme
8. When the ILOM Service Processor GUI screen is displayed, click the Remote
Control tab.
9. Click on the Redirection tab.
10. Set the color depth for the redirection console at either 6 or 8 bits.
11. Click on the Start Redirection button.
The javaRConsole window appears and prompts you for your user name and
password again.
12. When you are prompted, type a user name and password as follows:
User name: root
Password: changeme
The current POST screen is displayed.
Changing POST Options
These instructions are optional, but you can use them to change the operations that
the server performs during POST testing.
1. Initialize the BIOS Setup utility by pressing the F2 key while the system is
performing the power-on self-test (POST).
2. When the BIOS Main Menu screen is displayed, select the Boot menu.
3. From the Boot Settings screen, select Boot Settings Configuration.
122
Netra X4200 M2 Server Service Manual • May 2007
4. On the Boot Settings Configuration screen, there are several options that you
can enable or disable:
■
Quick Boot: This option is disabled by default. If you enable this, the BIOS
skips certain tests while booting, such as the extensive memory test. This
decreases the time it takes for the system to boot.
■
System Configuration Display: This option is disabled by default. If you
enable this, the system configuration screen is displayed before booting begins.
■
Quiet Boot: This option is disabled by default. If you enable this, the Sun
Microsystems logo is displayed instead of POST codes.
■
Language: This option is reserved for future use. Do not change.
■
Add On ROM Display Mode: This option is set to Force BIOS by default. This
option has effect only if you have also enabled the Quiet Boot option, but it
controls whether output from the Option ROM is displayed. The two settings
for this option are as follows:
■
■
Force BIOS: Remove the Sun logo and display Option ROM output.
Keep Current: Do not remove the Sun logo. The Option ROM output is not
displayed.
■
Boot Num-Lock: This option is On by default (keyboard Num-Lock is turned
on during boot). If you set this to off, the keyboard Num-Lock is not turned on
during boot.
■
Wait for F1 if Error: This option is disabled by default. If you enable this, the
system will pause if an error is found during POST and will only resume when
you press the F1 key.
■
Interrupt 19 Capture: This option is reserved for future use. Do not change.
■
Default Boot Order: The letters in the brackets represent the boot devices. To
see the letters defined, position your cursor over the field and read the
definition in the right side of the screen.

APPENDIX
E
Serial Attached SCSI BIOS
Configuration Utility
This appendix explains how to use the LSI Logic Fusion-MPT Serial Attached SCSI
(SAS) BIOS Configuration Utility. This appendix contains the following sections:
■
“Fusion-MPT SAS BIOS Overview” on page 157
■
“Starting the SAS BIOS Configuration Utility” on page 158
■
“Configuration Utility Screens” on page 159
■
“Performing RAID Configuration Tasks” on page 195
Fusion-MPT SAS BIOS Overview
The Fusion-MPT SAS BIOS features include:
■
Configuration for up to 256 adapters; any four can be chosen for INT13 (bootrom)
support
■
Support for Message Passing Technology (MPT)
■
Support for LSI53C1064 devices
■
Support for SAS devices
Note – At this time, the Netra X4200 M2 servers are shipped with support for the
SAS1064 controller only. SATA devices are not supported in these servers at this
time.
■
Support for Integrated RAID initialization (with proper firmware)
157
The SAS BIOS is the bootable ROM code that manages SAS hardware resources. It is
specific to a family of LSI Logic Fusion-MPT SAS controllers or processors. The
Fusion-MPT SAS BIOS integrates with a standard system BIOS, extending the
standard disk service routine provided through INT13h.
During the boot time initialization, the SAS BIOS determines whether the system
BIOS has already installed other hard disks, such as an IDE drive. If such drives are
already installed, the SAS BIOS maps any SAS drives it finds behind these drives.
Otherwise, the SAS BIOS installs drives starting with the system boot drive. In this
case, the system boots from a drive controlled by the SAS BIOS. The LSI Logic SAS
BIOS supports the BIOS Boot Specification (BBS).
Boot Initialization With BIOS Boot Specification
(BBS)
The Fusion-MPT SAS BIOS supports the BIOS Boot Specification (BBS), which allows
you to choose which device to boot from by selecting the priority.
To use this feature, the system BIOS must also be compatible with the BBS. If the
system supports the BBS, you can use the system BIOS Setup menu to select the boot
order and drive order. In the system BIOS Setup, the Boot Connection Devices menu
lists the available boot options. Use that menu to select the device and rearrange the
order. Then exit to continue the boot process.
Starting the SAS BIOS Configuration
Utility
If you have SAS BIOS version 6.xx, and it includes the Fusion-MPT SAS BIOS
Configuration Utility, you can change the default configuration of the SAS host
adapters. You may decide to change these default values if there is a conflict
between device settings or if you need to optimize system performance.
The version number of the SAS BIOS appears in a banner displayed on the computer
monitor during bootup. If the utility is available, this message also appears during
bootup:
Press Ctrl+C to start LSI Logic Configuration Utility...
This message remains on the screen for about five seconds, giving you time to start
the utility. If you press Ctrl+C, the message changes to:
Please wait, invoking LSI Logic Configuration Utility...
158
Netra X4200 M2 Server Service Manual • May 2007
After a brief pause, the computer monitor displays the Main menu of the FusionMPT SAS BIOS Configuration Utility. These messages may appear during the boot
process:
■
Adapter removed from boot order!
This message appears when an adapter has been removed from the system or has
been relocated behind a PCI bridge.
■
Adapter configuration may have changed, reconfiguration is
suggested!
This message appears if none of the information in the NVRAM is valid.
■
Updating Adapter List!
This message appears when fewer than four adapters are in the boot order and
more adapters exist than are shown.
Caution – The SAS BIOS Configuration Utility is a powerful tool. If, while using it,
you disable all of the controllers, press Ctrl+E (or Ctrl+A on versions earlier than
5.00) after memory initialization during reboot to reenable and reconfigure the
controllers.
Note – Some devices detected by the Configuration Utility cannot be controlled by
the SAS BIOS. Devices such as tape drives and scanners require that a device driver
specific to that device be loaded. However, the SAS BIOS Configuration Utility does
enable you to modify parameters for these devices.
Configuration Utility Screens
All SAS BIOS Configuration Utility screens are partitioned into the following areas,
starting at the top of the screen:
■
Header Area: This area lists static information text, including the product title
and version.
■
Menu Area: This area lists the current screen title and controller information
when on screens other than Adapter List.
■
Main Area: This is the main area for presenting data. This area has a cursor for
item selection, horizontal scrolling, and vertical scrolling. The horizontal and
vertical scroll bars appear here if needed.
■
Footer Area: This area provides general help information text.

CHS Mapping
Defines how the Cylinder Head Sector values are mapped onto a
disk without pre-existing partition information. CHS Mapping
allows two settings:
• SCSI Plug and Play Mapping (default) automatically determines
the most efficient and compatible mapping.
• Alternate CHS Mapping utilizes an alternate, possibly less
efficient, mapping that may be required if a device is moved
between adapters from different vendors.
Note: Neither of these options has any effect after a disk has been
partitioned using the FDISK command. To change the CHS Mapping
on a partitioned disk, use the FDISK command to delete all
partitions. Then reboot the system to clear memory. Otherwise, the
old partitioning data will be reused.
Link Error Settings
• Invalid DWORDs: The number of invalid dwords that have been
received, outside of PHY reset sequences, since the last PHY Link
Error Reset.
• Loss of DWORD Sync: The number of times, since the last PHY
Link Error Reset, that DWORD synchronization was lost and the
link reset sequence occurred.
• Running Disparity Errors: The number of DWORDS with
running disparity errors that have been received, outside of PHY
reset sequences, since the last PHY Link Error Reset.
• PHY Reset Errors: The number of times the PHY reset sequence
has failed, since the last PHY Link Error Reset.

RAID Implementation and Support
The LSISAS1064 controller supports the Integrated RAID hardware solution, which
is a highly integrated, low-cost RAID solution. It is designed for systems requiring
redundancy and high availability, but not requiring a full-featured RAID
implementation.
Integrated RAID includes Integrated Mirroring (IM or RAID 1) and Integrated
Striping (IS or RAID 0) technology. Integrated RAID is OS independent, easy to
install and configure, and does not require a special driver. A RAID Volume is seen
as a single drive by the host BIOS and OS.
192
Netra X4200 M2 Server Service Manual • May 2007
The LSISAS1064 controller is based on the Fusion-MPT (Message Passing
Technology) architecture. The Fusion-MPT architecture requires only a thin device
driver that is independent of the I/O bus. LSI Logic provides the device drivers for
various operating environments.
The ILOM Service Processor monitors the GPIOs from the SAS1064 controller. If the
controller indicates a failure, the service processor lights the fault LED on the
corresponding disk drive and logs the error in the SP event log.
Automatic Data Resynchronization and Hot Spares
Caution – Possible data loss: If you insert a hard disk drive (HDD) that has been
configured with a RAID volume into a server that did not previously have its HDDs
configured with RAID volumes, the existing HDD(s) in the server will be converted
to RAID volumes during automatic synchronization and any existing data on the
existing HDD(s) in the server will be erased. Before permanently removing a HDD
that is part of an active RAID volume, use the LSI Configuration Utility to delete the
RAID volume from the HDD to avoid causing this problem.
The SCSI parameters, including RAID volumes configuration, are set up using the
LSI BIOS Configuration Utility that is accessible by pressing the CTRL+C keys
during the boot process. The LSI RAID firmware and BIOS is OS-independent and
you set up RAID while in MPTBIOS POST, before booting to an OS.
The parameters are saved in both the NVRAM and the disk drives. The RAID
firmware needs 64 Mbytes of unused disk space at the end of each drive to store the
metadata.
The metadata stored on the disk drives contains sufficient information to restore and
reactivate the RAID volumes in case the NVRAM is lost (for example, when the
motherboard is replaced). However, if removed, the disk drives must first be
labelled to ensure that they are placed back in the same disk bays from which they
were removed when reinstalled. When the system is powered on, the RAID volumes
are automatically activated and resynchronization is automatically performed.
One of the disk drives can be set up as a hot-spare disk if a RAID 1 (mirroring)
volume is already set up. If one of the two disk drives used in the RAID 1 volume
fails, the hot-spare drive automatically replaces it in the volume and resync is
immediately performed.
It must be noted that, until the resync is completed, the system is vulnerable to a
failure of the now “primary” disk (the disk left from the original mirrored volume)
since full data redundancy is not yet achieved. When the bad disk is replaced, the
new disk automatically becomes the new hot-spare disk for the mirrored volume.

RAID Level Support
The following items describe the RAID level support for these servers:
■
RAID 1 (mirroring) is supported.
■
RAID 0 (striping) is supported.
■
LSI RAID 1E or IME (mirroring over more than two drives) is not supported.
■
RAID 0+1 and 1+0 are not supported by the SAS1064 controller.
RAID Volume Support
The following items describe the RAID volumes supported for these servers:
■
Up to two active RAID volumes are supported per system (RAID 0, RAID 1 or
both).
■
A striped volume (RAID 0) can contain up to four disk drives.
■
A mirrored volume (RAID 1) can contain up to two disk drives.
■
One disk drive can be set up as hot-spare for a RAID 1 array (one hot-spare disk
per controller maximum).
■
Volumes are transparent to the OS and are seen as a single physical disk drive no
matter how many drives they contain.
RAID Combination Support
Possible RAID Combinations in a four-HDD server are listed below:
194
■
Two drives RAID 0 + two drives non-RAID
■
Two drives RAID 1 + two drives non-RAID
■

Configuration Utility to set up RAID:
■ “Creating a RAID 0 Volume” on page 195
■ “Creating a RAID 1 Volume” on page 196
■ “Creating a Second RAID Volume” on page 198
■ “Viewing RAID Volume Properties” on page 198
■ “Managing Hot-Spares” on page 197
■ “Synchronizing an Array” on page 199
■ “Activating an Array” on page 199
■ “Deleting an Array” on page 199
■ “Locating a Disk Drive” on page 200
Note – The RAID firmware needs at least 64 Mbytes of unused disk space at the end
of each drive to store metadata.
Creating a RAID 0 Volume
A RAID 0 volume, also referred to as Integrated Striping (IS), offers the ability to
stripe data across multiple hard disks. This can increase storage capacity and
performance by combining multiple disks into one logical volume.
Note – Use RAID 0 with caution. The only advantage of RAID 0 is to improve the
overall disk performance by striping data over several disk drives. By doing this, it
decreases reliability because the failure of any drive within the striped volume
results in a complete loss of data. In addition, any disk drive included in a RAID 0
volume becomes non-hot-swappable.
Follow these steps to create a RAID 0 volume on an adapter that does not currently
have a volume configured.
1. In the Configuration Utility, select an adapter from the Adapter List screen.
2. Select the RAID Properties option.
3. When you are prompted to create either an IS volume or an IM volume, select
Create IS Volume.
The next screen shows a list of disks that can be added to a volume.
Appendix E
Serial Attached SCSI BIOS Configuration Utility
195
4. Move the cursor to the RAID Disk column. To add a disk to the volume,
change the “No” to “Yes” by pressing the + key, - key, or space bar.
As disks are added, the Array Size field changes to reflect the size of the new
volume. There are several limitations when creating a RAID 0 volume:
■
All disks must be SAS (with SMART support).
■
Disks must have 512-byte blocks and must not have removable media.
■
There must be at least two drives in a valid volume.
■
No more than eight drives are allowed in a volume.
■
Hot spare drives are not allowed for RAID 0 volumes.
Note – RAID 0 does not provide any data protection in the event of disk failure. It
is primarily used to increase speed.
Note – Once the number of disks in a RAID volume is set, it cannot be changed.
5. When the volume has been fully configured, press C and select Save Changes,
then exit this menu to commit the changes.
The Configuration Utility will pause while the array is being created.
Creating a RAID 1 Volume
A RAID 1 volume, also referred to as Integrated Mirroring (IM), offers the ability to
mirror data from one hard disk onto another one. This can increase reliability by
combining multiple disks into one logical volume. Follow these steps to create a
RAID 1 volume on an adapter that does not currently have a volume configured.
1. In the Configuration Utility, select an adapter from the Adapter List screen.
2. Select the RAID Properties option.
3. When you are prompted to create either an IS volume or an IM volume, select
Create IM Volume.
The next screen shows a list of disks that can be added to a volume.
4. Move the cursor to the RAID Disk column. To add a disk to the volume,
change the “No” to “Yes” by pressing the + key, - key, or space bar.
When the first disk is added, the utility will prompt you to keep existing data or
overwrite existing data.
196
Netra X4200 M2 Server Service Manual • May 2007
5. Press M to keep the existing data on the first disk or press D to overwrite it.
If you keep the existing data, this is called a migration. The first disk will be
mirrored onto the second disk, so the data you want to keep must be on the first
disk added to the volume. Data on all other disks will be lost.
As disks are added the Array Size field will change to reflect the size of the new
volume. There are several limitations when creating a RAID 1 volume:
■
All disks must be SAS (with SMART support).
■
Disks must have 512-byte blocks and must not have removable media.
■
There must be two drives in a valid volume.
6. (Optional) Add a hot spare to the volume by moving the cursor to the Hot
Spare column and pressing the + key, - key, or space bar.
7. When the volume has been fully configured, press C and select Save Changes,
then exit this menu to commit the changes.
The Configuration Utility will pause while the array is being created.
Note – RAID 1 provides protection against the failure of a single disk. When a disk
fails, it is rebuilt to a hot spare if one is available. This can greatly increase the level
of protection that RAID 1 provides.
Note – Even though multiple volumes can be created, the hot spare is a global hot
spare. Only one active hot spare is allowed for all volumes.
Managing Hot-Spares
Follow these steps to add a hot- spare to a RAID 1 volume.
1. Select Manage Hot Spare.
2. Select a disk from the list by pressing the + key, - key, or space bar.
Note – A hot-spare must be valid RAID disk, as defined in “Creating a RAID 1
Volume” on page 196.
3. After you select the hot-spare disk, press C.
4. Select Save Changes then exit this menu to commit the changes.
The Configuration Utility will pause while the hot spare is being added.
Appendix E
Serial Attached SCSI BIOS Configuration Utility
197
Follow these steps to delete a hot-spare from a RAID 1 volume.
1. Select Manage Hot Spare.
2. Remove the current hot spare disk from the list by pressing the + key, - key, or
space bar.
3. After you clear the hot-spare, press C.
4. Select Save Changes then exit this menu to commit the changes.
The Configuration Utility will pause while the hot-spare is being removed.
Creating a Second RAID Volume
The LSI Logic SAS controllers support two active RAID volumes. If one volume is
already configured, follow these steps to add a second volume.
1. In the Configuration Utility, select an adapter from the Adapter List screen.
2. Select the RAID Properties option.
This displays the current volume.
3. Press C to create a new volume.
4. Create the new volume:
■
To create a second RAID 0 volume, continue with Step 2 of “Creating a RAID 0
Volume” on page 195.
■
To create a second RAID 1 volume, continue with Step 2 of “Creating a RAID 1
Volume” on page 196.
Viewing RAID Volume Properties
Follow these steps to view the properties of RAID volumes.
1. In the Configuration Utility, select an adapter from the Adapter List screen.
2. Select the RAID Properties option.
The properties of the current volume are displayed.
3. If more than one volume is configured, press Alt+N to view the next array.
4. To manage the current array, press Enter when the Manage Array item is
selected.

Synchronizing an Array
Synchronizing an array means that the firmware synchronizes the data on the
secondary disk(s) with the data on the primary disk of the mirror. Follow these steps
to start a synchronization for a RAID 1 volume.
1. Select Synchronize Array.
2. Press Y to start the synchronization, or N to cancel it.
Note – If the server is rebooted before the volume synchronization is completed, the
resync resumes when the server boots.
Activating an Array
An array can become inactive if, for example, it is removed from one controller or
computer and moved to another one. The Activate Array option enables you to
reactivate an inactive array that has been added to a system. This option is only
available when the selected array is currently inactive.
1. Select Activate Array.
2. Press Y to proceed with the activation, or press N to abandon it.
After a pause, the array becomes active.
Deleting an Array
Caution – Before deleting an array, back up all data on the array that you want to
keep.
Follow these steps to delete a selected array.
1. Select Delete Array.
2. Press Y to delete the array, or press N to abandon the deletion.
After a pause, the firmware deletes the array.
Appendix E
Serial Attached SCSI BIOS Configuration Utility
199
Note – Once a volume has been deleted, it cannot be recovered. When a RAID 1
volume is deleted, the data is preserved on the primary disk. The master boot
records (MBR) of other disks in the array are deleted. For other RAID types, the
master boot records of all disks are deleted.
Locating a Disk Drive
There are several ways to physically locate a disk drive, as long as the firmware is
correctly configured and the drives support disk location.
200
■
During RAID creation, when a disk is set to Yes as part of a RAID volume, its
Locate LED is enabled. When it is set back to No or the RAID volume is created,
the Locate LED is cleared.
■
Disks can also be located from the SAS Topology screen. To locate a disk, move
the cursor to the disk and press Enter. The Locate LED on the disk remains lit
until the next key is pressed.
