Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Plan How you Want to Configure your Storage
Proper planning for system storage and performance is critical to a successful
deployment of your MSA1000. Improper planning or implementation can result
in wasted storage space, degraded performance, or inability to expand the system
to meet growing storage needs.
Key points to consider include:
■
System Priorities
■
Striping Methods
■
RAID Types
■
Hard Drive Sizes and Types
■
Spare Drives
■
LUN Sizing
System Priorities
To help you determine the best way to configure your storage, you must first rank
the following three storage characteristics in order of importance:
■
Fault tolerance
■
I/O performance
■
Capacity utilization
With your priorities established, you can determine which striping method and
RAID level to use.
As highlighted in the following sections on Striping Methods and RAID Types,
some configuration methods offer greater fault tolerance, while other
configuration methods offer better I/O performance or capacity utilization.
18
MSA1000 Installation Guide
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Striping Methods
A storage array combines the capacity of several physical hard drives into one
virtual unit called a logical unit (LUN). These LUNs are presented to the
operating system as a disk device. The physical layout of an array can be one of
two configurations:
■
Vertical striping
■
Horizontal striping
In a vertical configuration, an array uses physical drives from each storage
enclosure. In a horizontal configuration, the array uses multiple drives contained
within the same storage enclosure.
Vertical and horizontal arrays each have their advantages and disadvantages.
Vertical arrays offer ultimate fault tolerance, but at the price of capacity utilization
and performance, while horizontal arrays allow for the creation of large arrays and
offer the best combination of capacity utilization and performance.
RAID Types
RAID is an acronym for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. RAID
configurations allow you to combine multiple physical drives from one or more
storage enclosures into a single logical unit. RAID configurations can provide
fault-tolerance capabilities, so that one or more drives within the RAID set can
fail without bringing the drive sub-system down.
RAID configuration options provide flexibility to configure logical units in a way
that fits your need for availability, speed, and capacity.
RAID levels include:
■
RAID 0 — data striping only (no fault tolerance)
■
RAID 1 — drive mirroring
■
RAID 1+0 — data striping and drive mirroring
■
RAID 5 — distributed data guarding, with distributed parity data
■
RAID ADG — Advanced Data Guarding, with two sets of distributed parity
The RAID level you choose affects the amount of available storage capacity, and
the performance and availability of your array.
For example, if you require a fault-tolerant system for critical data, use either
RAID 1 (or RAID 1+0), RAID 5, or RAID ADG. RAID 1 (or RAID 1+0) is the
best choice for fault tolerance when I/O performance is also important. RAID 5 or
RAID ADG is the best choice when capacity utilization is also important.
MSA1000 Installation Guide
19
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Hard Drive Sizes and Types
Arrays should be composed of hard drives of the same size and type. When drive
types are mixed within a storage enclosure, the usable capacity and the processing
ability of the entire storage sub-system is affected.
For example, when an array is composed of different sized drives, the array
defaults to the smallest individual drive size, and capacity in the larger drives goes
unused. Similarly, when different drive types are included in the same enclosure,
the processing characteristics of the entire enclosure are reduced to that of the
slowest drive.
Spare Drives
HP recommends including spare drives in your arrays.
Spares are disks that are not active members of any particular array, but have been
configured to be used in the event that a disk in one of the arrays should fail. If a
spare is present and a physical drive fails, the spare automatically replaces the
failed drive as a member of the array and the process of rebuilding the information
onto the spare automatically begins. The system uses the parity information from
the other member disks to reconstruct the data onto the spare drive.
After the rebuild process is complete, you must replace the failed drive and also
make sure to configure a new drive as a spare.
LUN Sizing
When planning for optimal file serving performance, the number of hard drives
necessary to maintain an optimum performance level must be determined.
As a general rule, the greater the number of drives that are included in an array,
the greater the performance level that can be achieved. However, the performance
considerations are offset by fault tolerance considerations — the greater the
number of drives in an array, the higher the probability of one or more disk
failures in that array.
A common practice is to include 14 or fewer physical drives in an array.

■
■
Use the MSA1000 Configuration Overview poster to help you gather all of
the items required for your MSA1000 installation.
Go to the MSA1000 website at http://www.hp.com/go/msa1000 to confirm
your installation plans and review current information about the MSA1000.
As you install your MSA1000 into your SAN, record information about your
system in the provided configuration worksheets.
Use either the worksheet on the Configuration Overview poster or
“My MSA1000 Worksheets” on page 95 of this guide.
■
Install your MSA1000 in the sequence listed in this guide.
Several installation and configuration steps include dependencies and if you
deviate from the listed sequence, you may have to uninstall and then reinstall
your MSA1000. Difficulties that you encounter by not following the
directions in this guide may result in lost time and lost revenue while
troubleshooting the issues.
For example, in a Windows environment, when you power up the server after
installing the HBA for the MSA1000, Windows will display a “New
Hardware Found” message and will prompt to install an HBA driver. You
must cancel out of this window or Windows will install an HBA driver that is
unsupported for use with the MSA1000.
If you follow the instructions provided in this guide, we will walk you through
the installation process, one step at a time.
■
When planning your LUNS, customize the RAID type and striping method to
the type of data that will be stored on the array.
For example, for non-critical data, you may want to use RAID 0, which
provides no fault tolerance, but provides rapid storage of large amounts of
data. For critical data, use RAID 1 (RAID 1+0), RAID 5, or RAID ADG,
choosing the RAID type the offers the desired combination of fault-tolerance,
I/O performance, and capacity utilization.
Note: Depending on the number of drives that you include in an array, the ACU
automatically assumes a default RAID type of ADG, which maximizes fault tolerance
and capacity utilization, but at a significant cost to I/O performance. For comparable
fault tolerance but higher performance, consider using RAID 1+0.
MSA1000 Installation Guide
21
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
■
When planning your LUNs, set the drive rebuild priority of your LUNs to
“high” to minimize exposure during a drive failure.
■
When planning your LUNs, to optimize performance and redundancy in a
mirrored environment (RAID 1 or RAID 1+0), stripe the drives in the array
across the separate buses within the MSA1000 and any attached storage
enclosures.
For example, because drive bays 1-7 in the MSA1000 are located on bus 1
and drives 8-14 are located on bus 2, when creating a mirrored array with 6
drives, include the drives in bays 1, 2, 3 and 8, 9, 10.
■
In a SAN with multiple servers, HP recommends designating one of the
servers as a management server, to centralize your management tasks.
It is on this server that you will install management software such as the ACU,
and it is from this server that you will perform your SAN management tasks.
■
Before installing your MSA1000, consider redundancies of power, storage,
and data paths.
— To provide redundant power, be sure to plug the two power supplies on
the MSA1000 into separate Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) on
separate sources of power. If you have only one UPS, maintain separate
power paths by plugging one MSA1000 power supply to the UPS on one
power source and plug the other MSA1000 power supply to a separate
power source.
— To provide redundant storage, configure your LUNs using fault-tolerant
RAID levels and striping methods. If you have additional storage
enclosures attached to the MSA1000, consider striping the array
vertically and include drives from each enclosure, to maximize hardware
fault tolerance and I/O performance.
— To provide redundant data paths, you must include two isolated fibre
channel fabrics and the associated hardware and software components in
the configuration. You must include two MSA1000 controllers, two Fibre
interconnect devices, and two HBAs in each server. Environments using
Secure Path software must install the software on each server.
22
MSA1000 Installation Guide
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
■
When installing or updating the HBA drivers, always use the drivers and the
installation scripts provided on the MSA1000 Support Software CD and the
MSA1000 website.
Your MSA1000 will not operate as intended if you update your HBA driver
manually or use drivers obtained from the HBA manufacturer.
■
After installing your MSA1000, remember to set your host mode to identify
your operating system to the MSA1000.
■
If you need to install Secure Path software, be sure to follow every server
reboot prompt that is presented.
Failure to acknowledge a server reboot prompt may result in your path
redundancy not functioning properly.
Be sure to reboot your server after the server portion of the install and again
after the client portion of the install.
MSA1000 Installation Guide

Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Step 2: Preparing your Site
To ensure continuous, safe, and reliable operation of your equipment, place your
system in a well-ventilated, climate-controlled environment. Ensure that you have
adequate physical space, ventilation, and power.
For physical space and ventilation, be sure to provide adequate clearance around
the front and back of the racks. Provide at least 25 inches in the front of the rack to
allow the doors to open fully and provide at least 30 inches in the rear of the rack
to allow for servicing and airflow. If there are unused spaces in your rack, attach
blanking panels across those empty spaces, to force the airflow through the
components instead of through the open spaces.
For power sources, make sure that you have two high-line power feeds installed
near your computer. These two power sources usually come from the same
external power grid, but occasionally may originate from different grids or even
different sources entirely. The typical practice is to split power coming from the
source and provide two feeds into the computer room. On occasion, you may have
access to two separate sources (two different sub-stations, for example) and have
feeds coming in from each. Providing separate feeds into a computer room allows
for redundancy, but can be expensive to implement.
For added protection against a power-source failure, obtain and include in your
installation two Uninterruptable Power Supplies.
Select a location that meets the environmental standards described in
Table 2 “MSA1000 Environmental Specifications” on page 25.

Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Step 3: Preparing your Servers
Depending on your plans, you will connect your MSA1000 to either new or
existing servers. In both scenarios, it is important that your servers are operating
properly before installing the HBA for the MSA1000.
Verify that the servers and operating systems that you plan to use are supported for
use with the MSA1000. For a list of servers and operating systems that are
supported for use with the MSA1000, read the HP StorageWorks MSA1000
Compatibility Guide, located on the MSA1000 Technical Documents Web page
at http://www.hp.com/go/msa1000.
If more than one server will access the MSA1000, HP recommends designating
one of the servers as a management server. It is on this server that you will load
management software (such as the ACU) and it is from this server that you will
perform your SAN management tasks.
For information about installing new servers, please refer to the instructions that
came with your server.
Note: Some software components on the server, such as Secure Path, must be installed
after installing and connecting the MSA1000 to the server.
If you are connecting the MSA1000 to an existing server, you must reinstall Secure Path
after installing the MSA1000.
Go to Appendix C: “My MSA1000 Worksheets” on page 95 and record
information about the servers that will connect to the MSA1000.
You will use this information later, when connecting to the MSA1000 and
configuring your storage.
26
MSA1000 Installation Guide
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Step 4: Installing the HBA in your Servers
After you have confirmed that your servers are operating properly, you may install
the HBA for the MSA1000 in each of the servers. Because the MSA1000 can be
deployed into a variety of operating system environments and configurations
(including single-path and multi-path), specific HBA are required for the different
deployments.
To confirm that you have purchased the correct HBA for your configuration and
that you plan to use the right HBA firmware and drivers, review the MSA1000
Compatibility Guide, located on the MSA1000 Technical Documents Web page
at http://www.hp.com/go/msa1000.
To install the HBA in the server, use the instructions that came with the HBA or
the server.
Go to Appendix C: “My MSA1000 Worksheets” on page 95 and record
information about the HBA in the servers that will be connecting to the
MSA1000.
Some of the information about the HBA may be printed on the HBA or on its
shipping carton. If this information is not available now, you can obtain it later
through the MSA1000 Command Line Interface or by viewing the monitor to the
server during the server power-on self-test (POST) routine.
You will use this information about the HBA later, when connecting to the
MSA1000 and configuring your storage.
Caution: Do not power-on your server.
Please note that when it is time to power up the server, Windows will display a
“New Hardware Found” message and will prompt to install an HBA driver.
You must cancel out of this window or Windows will install an HBA driver that
is unsupported for use with the MSA1000.
Note: You will install your HBA driver and additional MSA1000 dependencies in
“Step 10: Configuring your MSA1000” on page 51.
MSA1000 Installation Guide
27
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Step 5: Preparing your Switches & Hubs
In an existing SAN, your switches and hubs are already set up and configured, but
if you are deploying your MSA1000 into a new SAN, you need to install and
configure your Fibre interconnect devices at this time.
To confirm that the interconnect device that you plan to use is approved for use
with the MSA1000, review the HP StorageWorks MSA1000 Compatibility Guide,
located on the MSA1000 Technical Documents Web page at
http://www.hp.com/go/msa1000.
Note: Although the MSA1000 can support the use of some 1 Gb/s (gigabits per
second) devices, HP recommends connecting the MSA1000 only to 2 Gb/s devices.
Optimum performance is obtained through using the faster interconnect devices.
For both existing and newly installed switches, HP recommends reviewing the
documentation that came with the switch to make sure that the switch and the
server are set up correctly. You may want to examine the configuration settings of
your device. For example, you may want to set up zoning on the switch, establish
a workgroup or domain environment, or establish cascading patterns.
Note: For newly installed switches, make sure that you change the IP address of the
switch from the default value to a valid IP address.
Go to Appendix C: “My MSA1000 Worksheets” on page 95 and record
information about the interconnect devices that will connect to the MSA1000.
You will use this information about the switches later, when connecting to the
MSA1000 and configuring your storage.
28
MSA1000 Installation Guide
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Step 6: Installing Option Kits in your MSA1000
If your plans include adding any of the available option kits for the MSA1000
(such as a redundant controller, additional controller cache, or embedded
interconnect device), install them now.
It is easier to install these options now, before you install the MSA1000 in
the rack.
Some of the MSA1000 option kits include:
■
Redundant controller
■
Additional controller cache
■
Redundant Fibre Channel I/O Module
■
Embedded MSA SAN Switch 2/8
■
Embedded MSA Hub 2/3
Caution: Do not install hard drives in the MSA1000 until after the MSA1000
is mounted in the rack.
■ Installed drives will make the MSA1000 too heavy to safely lift and install
in the rack.
■ If the hard drives are installed prior to racking the MSA1000, the
vibrations caused while moving the MSA1000 may damage the hard
drives and void their warranty.

Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Step 7: Installing your MSA1000 in the Rack
At this point in the process of installing your MSA1000, you have either installed
your new SAN or prepared your existing SAN for the MSA1000 — your server is
ready, and your interconnect device is ready.
Now is the time to:
■
Attach the Mounting Rails to the Rack
■
Install the MSA1000 in the Rack
■
Install the Hard Drives in the MSA1000
The MSA1000 and its supported storage enclosures can be installed into most
standard server racks. To see if the rack you plan to use is supported for use with
the MSA1000, review the MSA1000 Compatibility Guide, located on the
MSA1000 Technical Documents Web page at http://www.hp.com/go/msa1000.
To help you install your MSA1000, each MSA1000 is shipped with a
rack-mounting kit that includes the required components for quick installation in
Compaq-branded, HP-branded, and most square- and round-hole third-party
racks. The adjustable feature of the rack rails enables installation in racks with
depths of 69.90 to 73.81 cm (27.52 to 29.06 in).
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the
equipment, be sure that:
■ The leveling jacks on the rack are extended to the floor.
■ The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.
■ The stabilizing feet are attached to the rack if it is a single-rack installation.
■ The racks are coupled together in multiple-rack installations.
■ Only one component is extended at a time. A rack may become unstable if
more than one component is extended.
Note: Use the instructions in this section for installing both the MSA1000 and any
additional storage enclosures that you may have purchased.

Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Step 8: Connecting the Cables
At this point in the process of installing your MSA1000, you have either installed
your new SAN or prepared your existing SAN for the MSA1000 — your server is
ready, your interconnect device is ready, and the MSA1000 is ready.
Now is the time to:
■
Connect the SCSI Cables (if needed)
■
Connect the Fibre Cables
■
Connect the Power Cords
Each of these connection types is discussed in the following paragraphs.
Cable Management Considerations
Consider the following when connecting your cables:
■
To ensure that the cabling in the back of a rack system does not interfere with
system operation or maintenance, gather the cables in the rear of the
MSA1000, bind them loosely with cable ties and route the excess cables out
of the way, along the side of the rack.
When the cables are tied together and routed down the side of the rack, system
components and indicators are easily visible and accessible.
■
Attach a label near both ends of each cable to identify the device connected to
that cable. Include the device, device name, port, or other information that you
think will be helpful.
■
Use colored markers to color-code both ends of each cable, to help you
visually identify a particular cable without having to read or locate the label.
■
In redundant configurations, you may want to loosely bind both ends of the
matching pair of cables connecting devices.
MSA1000 Installation Guide
41
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Connect the SCSI Cables (if needed)
If you have purchased and installed additional storage enclosures for the
MSA1000, use standard VHDCI SCSI cables to connect the MSA1000 to the
enclosures.
SCSI cables are included in the shipping carton with the storage enclosures.
Note: Tighten the thumbsrews on the SCSI cables to ensure a secure connection.
Figure 14: SCSI cable connections to an HP StorageWorks 4314 storage enclosure

MSA1000 Installation Guide
Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Connect the Fibre Cables
Your MSA1000 can be deployed into a variety of configurations, from relatively
simple single-path configurations to more complex multi-path configurations.
Because there are two interconnect devices and HBAs in multi-path (redundant)
configurations, cable connections must follow specific installation requirements.
Caution: Use appropriate precautions when handling fiber optic cables:
■ Touching the end of a fiber cable will either damage the cable or cause
performance problems, including intermittent difficulties accessing the
storage.
■ Whenever a Fibre cable is not connected, replace the protective covers on
the ends of the cable.
■ Make certain that the fiber optic cables are installed and supported so that
no excess weight is placed on the Fibre Channel connectors. This prevents
damage to the connector and cable. Excess fiber optic cable should be
loosely coiled and tied out of the way, being careful not to coil the cable in
a tight loop with a bend radius of less than 3 inches (7.62 cm).
Regardless of your configuration, the fundamentals of the connecting Fibre cables
are the same:
1. Connect one end of the Fibre cable to the Fibre optic port on the back of the
MSA1000 (either the standard shipping Fibre Channel I/O Module, the
embedded MSA SAN Switch 2/8, or the embedded MSA Hub 2/3).
2. Connect the other end of the Fibre optic cable either to your external
interconnect device (when using the standard shipping Fibre Channel I/O
Module) or to your server (when using the optional embedded switch or hub).
Note: See the illustrations on the following pages for sample cabling configurations for
a single-path MSA1000 installation and for a multi-path MSA1000 installation.

Installation Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments
Connect the Power Cords
To protect your system from power supply or power source failure, the MSA1000
ships standard with a redundant power supply. By connecting the power supplies
on the MSA1000 to electrical outlets on separate power sources, you eliminate the
power supply and power source as single points of failure to your storage
sub-system.
The MSA1000 offers you three levels of protection against power failures, each of
which is dependant on the electrical source to which you connect your MSA1000:
■
Basic protection — plugging the redundant power supplies on the MSA1000
into the same power source.
■
Better protection — plugging one MSA1000 power supply into an
Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) to one power source (electrical breaker)
and plugging the other MSA1000 power supply into an electrical outlet on a
separate power source.
■
Best protection — plugging one MSA1000 power supply into an
Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) to one power source (electrical breaker)
and plugging the other MSA1000 power supply into another UPS on a
separate power source.
The basic level of protection only protects your MSA1000 from a failed power
supply on the MSA1000. If one of the power supply/fan modules fails, the
redundant module can keep the MSA1000 running. If both power supplies on the
MSA1000 are connected to the same power source, you are not protected from a
tripped breaker or outage of power at the source.
The best level of protection protects you from data loss when one of your power
sources fails, due to either a tripped breaker or local power outage. With your
MSA1000 connected to two UPS on separate power sources, your MSA1000 can
keep operating during a power outage. Depending on the cause and duration of the
power outage, you can use this time to properly shut down your storage
sub-system.
MSA1000 Installation Guide

WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:
■ Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an
important safety feature.
■ Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily
accessible at all times.
■ Unplug the power cord from the power supply to disconnect power to the
equipment.
■ Route the power cord so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by
items placed against it. Pay particular attention to the plug, electrical outlet,
and the point where the cord is attached to the MSA1000.

Step 9: Powering On your MSA1000
At this point in the installation process you have prepared your servers and
interconnect devices for the MSA1000 and have connected your MSA1000 to
your SAN. With your SAN ready to go and the MSA1000 installed and
connected, you can power up your MSA1000.
Note: Install hard drives in the MSA1000 and any attached storage enclosures before
you power on the system, so the MSA1000 controller can identify them at power up.
Power up your MSA1000 in the following sequence:
1. Power on any attached storage expansion enclosures.
2. Start up the MSA1000, by pressing the standby switch located in the far-right
lower area of the front panel of the MSA1000.
3. Wait for the MSA1000 to complete its startup routine and the following
message to display on the LCD panel on the front of the MSA1000:
01 MSA1000 Startup Complete
This startup process may take up to eight minutes.
4. If you installed an MSA SAN Switch 2/8 in your MSA1000, wait until this
additional message is displayed on the LCD panel:
“SAN Switch 2/8 <IP Address>”
where <IP Address> is the IP address of the switch
The MSA SAN Switch 2/8 power-on self-test may take up to 5 additional
minutes.
Note: Proceed to the next step only after these startup messages are displayed. If you
power up the server before the MSA1000 has completed its power-on sequence, your
server will not see the MSA1000.
48

Configuration Procedures - for Tru64 UNIX Environments
Installing Alternative Firmware on your MSA1000
Note: The following procedure uses an example configuration with two installed
MSA1000s. Use the information from your own configuration to install the firmware. A
table is provided for you to record important information.
1. Use the hwmgr utility to determine the hardware IDs of any MSA1000s in
your SAN:
This command may take several seconds to complete.
# /sbin/hwmgr view device | grep MSA1000 | grep -v VOLUME
HWID:Device NameMfgModelLocation
236:/dev/cport/scp2MSA1000bus-5-targ-0-lun-0
237:/dev/cport/scp3MSA1000bus-5-targ-2-lun-0
Note: The hwmgr uses the term “WWID” and the MSA1000 uses the term
“NODE_ID.” Both terms refer to the worldwide Node ID.
2. If you have multiple MSA1000s, match the WWIDs of each MSA1000
displayed by the hwmgr with the NODE_ID you recorded in “Obtaining the
Node ID of the MSA1000”.
Execute the hwmgr utility with the hardware ID (HWID) of the MSA1000
devices on your system to determine the WWID for the devices.
The following example shows the command using both HWIDs 236 and 237
obtained in the previous step, and the results displayed for each command.
Command for device 236:
# /sbin/hwmgr show scsi -full -id 236

In this example, the MSA1000 controller that requires a firmware upgrade has
a NODE_ID of 500805F3-0001BA20. The device with HWID 236 has a
WWID of 5008-05f3-0001-ba20. The WWID matches the NODE_ID,
so the MSA1000 with hardware ID 236 is the MSA1000 to receive the
firmware upgrade.
Note: The MSA1000 and hwmgr display the WWID differently. The MSA1000
displays two 32-bit hex numbers using upper case characters. The hwmgr displays four
16-bit hex numbers and uses lower case characters. Disregard the number 02000008
in the hwmgr display. This number is not part of a WWID.
3. Refer to step 2 and obtain the possible bus/target/LUN values for the
MSA1000 with the hardware ID for which the NODE_ID and WWID match.
In the example of step 2, hardware ID 236 is a match.
As shown in step 2, the possible bus/target/LUN values are:

4. Record these bus/target/LUN values in the System Information Table.
5. Locate the MSA1000 that requires the firmware upgrade.
If the MSA1000 has a dual-controllers, remove the left controller
(controller 2). The error light on the right controller lights, and the right
controller displays the following error message:
REDUNDANCY FAILED, NO SECOND CONTROLLER.
You can safely ignore this error message.
MSA1000 Installation Guide
85
Configuration Procedures - for Tru64 UNIX Environments
6. Use the SCSI CAM Utility program (SCU) to download the MSA1000
firmware to the right controller.
There are three steps to download the firmware: (a) setting the device nexus
information, (b) determining which bus/target/LUN values to use, and
(c) downloading the firmware.
a. Use the scu sbtl command to set the device nexus information.
The scu sbtl command is a shorthand command for the set nexus
command.
To start the SCU, enter the following command:
/sbin/scu
At the scu> prompt, enter one of the possible bus/target/LUN
combinations that you recorded in step 6.
sbtl 5 1 0
Device:MSA1000, Bus:5, Target:1, Lun:0, Type:Array Controller
b. Use the scu tur command to determine if that bus/target/LUN
combination can be used. The scu tur command is a shorthand
command for the test unit ready command.
At the scu> prompt, enter the following:
tur
If an error message is displayed, go back to step a and use one of the other
possible bus/target/LUN combinations.
If the scu prompt is displayed with out an error message, proceed to the
next step.
c. Download the firmware from the file you copied to your system.
Make sure that you include the save and segment parameters.
download /msa1000/v3<xxxxx>.bin save segment
Downloading File ‘/msa1000/v3<xxxxx>.bin’ of 1048576 bytes
in 8192 byte segments...
Download completed successfully, now saving the microcode...
Delaying for 120 seconds while firmware is saved, please be
patient... 120
The scu utility counts down from 120 seconds, returning to the scu>
prompt when the time delay is complete.
d. When the scu> prompt is redisplayed, enter the exit command to exit the
SCU.
86
MSA1000 Installation Guide
Configuration Procedures - for Tru64 UNIX Environments
Note: The MSA1000 displays the message FIRMWARE FLASH STARTED when it starts
the download, and FIRMWARE FLASH DONE when the download is complete.
7. When the controller displays FIRMWARE FLASH DONE, remove power from the
MSA1000. After a few seconds, reapply power to the MSA1000, which
causes a reboot of the right controller.
When the right controller completes the reboot, the following message is
displayed:
COMPAQ MSA1000 STARTUP COMPLETE
Depending on the controller configuration, do one of the following:
■
If the MSA1000 has a single-controller, the firmware upgrade is
complete. Go to step 9.
■
If the MSA1000 has dual-controllers, reinstall the left controller and
continue with step 8.
8. After reinstalling the left controller, the following message is displayed:
CLONE FIRMWARE? ‘<‘ =NO, ‘>’=YES
Press the > button on the left controller display to begin the cloning process.
Note: If you take no action, the firmware clone starts automatically.
The message ROM CLONING STARTED is displayed, indicating that the firmware
on the left controller is being cloned. Cloning takes approximately one
minute.
After the firmware clone is complete, the left controller displays the message
followed by ARRAY CONTROLLER RESTARTING.
ROM CLONING DONE,
The controller will restart within 30 seconds. The left controller displays
when the startup routine is complete.
COMPAQ MSA1000 STARTUP COMPLETE
9. Use the show this_controller or show other_controller commands to
verify the firmware download.
The MSA1000 firmware has now been upgraded with firmware that supports
Tru64 UNIX and TruCluster Server.

Configuration Procedures - for Tru64 UNIX Environments
Identifying the Server and Operating System to the MSA1000
Because the MSA1000 can operate in a variety of operating system environments,
you must identify your server to the MSA1000. These identification steps include
changing the name of the connection to the server to a meaningful name and
identifying your server’s operating system.
Identify the connection to the server and its operating system using the same
utility you will later use to configure the storage.
For information on identifying your server, see the “Managing Connection
Profiles” section of the HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 1000 Command
Line Interface Reference Guide. This guide is available on the MSA1000 Support
Documentation CD and the MSA1000 website at
http://www.hp.com/go/msa1000.
Configuring the Storage Arrays and Logical Volumes
Planning the storage configuration is critical to the successful and efficient
deployment of any storage array system. As discussed in Chapter 1: “Installation
Procedures - for all MSA1000 Deployments”, plans should include decisions
about total system capacity, fault-tolerance, performance, and availability.
Note: Refer to “Plan How you Want to Configure your Storage” on page 18 and
“Review MSA1000 Installation Best Practices” on page 21 for help developing a
configuration plan.
After your storage plan is developed, configure the storage by using the CLI.
For information on configuring your storage, see the HP StorageWorks Modular
Smart Array 1000 Command Line Interface Reference Guide. This guide is
available on the MSA1000 Support Documentation CD and the MSA1000

Electrostatic Discharge
B
To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow
when setting up the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from
a finger or other conductor may damage system boards or other static-sensitive
devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.
Prevention Methods
■
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe
containers.
■
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at
static-free workstations.
■
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their
containers.
■
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
■
Always make sure you are properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive
component or assembly.
MSA1000 Installation Guide
93
Electrostatic Discharge
Grounding Methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following
methods when handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
■
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or
computer chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1
megohm ± 10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper
ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
■
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the
straps on both feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor
mats.
■
Use conductive field service tools.
■
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the equipment suggested for proper grounding, either
have an Authorized HP Reseller install the part or discharge any potential static by
touching a piece of sheet metal immediatly before touching the component or the
MSA1000.
