Storage Array Descriptions
This chapter contains technical descriptions of the SA550, SA600, SA650, SA800,
SA850, and SA900 storage arrays, the storage devices (for instance, enclosures,
disk drives, tape systems, solid state disks, and so forth), and the cabinets in
their various configurations.
Each SAxxx storage array includes a cabinet, storage devices, and a power
controller as described in the following sections.
2.1 H9646 Cabinet
The H9646 cabinet is a four-level cabinet that can be configured as one of several
different storage arrays depending on the storage devices (SA7x enclosures, RA82
disk drives, RA9x disk drives) and the power controller model installed.
2.2 H9A00 Cabinet
The H9A00 cabinet is a five-level cabinet that can be configured as one of several
different storage arrays depending on the storage devices (SA7x enclosures,
RA82 disk drives, RA9x disk drives, ESE50 solid state disks, TA8x7 tape storage
subsystem) and the power controller model installed.
2.3 SA7x Enclosure
The SA7x family of enclosures includes the SA70, SA71, SA72, and SA73. The
model number specifies the type RA7x disk drive installed in the enclosure.
An SA70 enclosure contains RA70 drives; the SA71 contains RA71 drives; and
the SA72 contains RA72 drives. Each enclosure can contain from one to four
disk drives. The SA7x enclosure provides power, cooling, and control for the
independently powered and operated RA7x disk drives. See Appendix C for a
complete listing of the SA7x enclosure and RA7x disk drive configurations.
2.4 RA7x Disk Drive
The RA7x family of disk drives includes the RA70, RA71, RA72, and RA73. The
capacities of the RA7x disk drives are listed in Table 1–3.
See the RA7x Disk Drive Service Manual for more information.
2.5 RA82 Disk Drive
The RA82 disk drive has a capacity of 623 MB (780 MB unformatted) and can be
installed in an H9646 cabinet without an enclosure.
See the RA82 Disk Drive User Guide and the SA482 Storage Array User Guide
for more information.
Storage Array Descriptions 2–1
2.6 RA9x Disk Drive
The RA90 and RA92 disk drives are physically identical, but have different
capacities, as follows.
•
The RA90 has a capacity of 1.22 GB (1.62 GB unformatted).
•
The RA92 has a storage capacity of 1.51 GB (1.99 GB unformatted).
See the RA90/RA92 Disk Drive User Guide for more information.
2.7 ESE50 Solid State Disk
The ESE50 solid state disk (SSD) is a member of the DIGITAL Storage
Architecture/Standard Disk Interconnect (DSA/SDI™) family and is, therefore,
completely compatible with all DSA/SDI controllers.
The ESE50 SSD is a random-access, low-latency storage device that uses dynamic
random-access memory (DRAM) technology. It is contained in a half-rack
enclosure identical to the RA9x disk drive. The ESE50 SSD has its own power
and data retention capabilities. It connects to and operates on the SDI bus and
may be used with controllers implementing this bus. The SSD operator control
panel (OCP) is the same as the RA9x OCP.
See the ESE50 SSD User Guide for more information.
2.8 TA8x7-Series Storage Subsystems
The TA8x7-series storage subsystems consists of a magazine tape system and an
SCSI/SDI adapter-interface.
Note
A maximum of three TA8x7 series storage subsystems can be installed in
an SA900 storage array.
2.8.1 TZ857-Series Magazine Tape Subsystem
The TZ857 magazine tape subsystem is an electromechanical device that uses
from one to seven CompacTape III cartridges to store from 2.6 GB to 18.2 GB of
data.
The TZ857 magazine tape subsystem can load and unload tape cartridges to
and from a tape drive for unattended backup, as well as performing single
cartridge operations. The TZ857 subsystem performs automatic, sequential tape
operations.
In addition, the TZ857 subsystem executes operating system commands,
qualifiers, and parameters to store data from user disk areas to the tape drive.
See the Tx857 Series Magazine Tape Subsystem Owner’s Manual for more
information.
2–2 Storage Array Descriptions
2.8.2 TZ867-Series Magazine Tape Subsystem
The TZ867 magazine tape subsystem is an electromechanical device that uses
from one to seven CompacTape III cartridges to store from 6 GB to 42 GB of data.
The TZ867 magazine tape subsystem can load and unload tape cartridges to
and from a tape drive for unattended backup, as well as performing single
cartridge operations. The TZ867 subsystem performs automatic, sequential tape
operations.
In addition, the TZ867 subsystem executes operating system commands,
qualifiers, and parameters to store data from user disk areas to the tape drive.
See the Tx867 Series Magazine Tape Subsystem Owner’s Manual for more
information.
2.8.3 SCSI/SDI Adapter-Interface
The TZ8x7 series tape drives use Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) logic
control and data signals. The adapter-interface converts information from SCSI
format to SDI format and vice-versa. The external SDI cable is connected directly
from either the Port A or Port B adapter-interface connector to the controller.
The external interface cable is not connected to the SA900 I/O bulkhead.
See the SA100 User’s Manual for more information.
2.9 Power Controller
The power controller links the internal and external power sources with power
cords. It controls power distribution with bus connectors, a fuse, circuit breaker,
and the Bus/Off/On switch.
•
The 881A power controller is used for 120 Vac (60 Hz) storage arrays.
•
The 881B power controller is used for 240 Vac (50 Hz) storage arrays.
Note
Some European markets use the 887B power controller which is
electrically the same as the 881B although its physical configuration
is slightly different.
See the 881 Power Controller User Guide for more information.

The storage arrays are not line-frequency dependent. The input currents (that is,
startup, PH1, PH2, PH3, and neutral) are for nominal voltages of either 120 Vac
or 240 Vac to neutral. These correspond directly to 208 Vac or 416 Vac phase-tophase, respectively. Nominal voltages of 110 Vac and 220 Vac have proportionally
higher phase currents on a ratio of 120:110 and 240:220 to the current specified
in Tables 2–6 and 2–7.

The storage arrays are not line-frequency dependent. The input currents (that is,
startup, PH1, PH2, PH3, and neutral) are for nominal voltages of either 120 Vac
or 240 Vac to neutral. These correspond directly to 208 Vac or 416 Vac phase-tophase, respectively. Nominal voltages of 110 Vac and 220 Vac have proportionally
higher phase currents on a ratio of 120:110 and 240:220 to the current specified
in Tables 2–12 and 2–13.

2.14 SA900 Storage Array Description
There are several SA900 storage array configurations composed of combinations
of SA7x enclosures, RA92 disk drives, ESE50 SSDs, and TA857 tape storage
systems. These storage devices are installed in a five-level H9A00 cabinet and
receive power through a power controller. Figure 2–4 shows an SA900 storage
array.
There is no standard SA900 configuration, therefore, SA900 storage arrays
are not shipped with mounting rails, internal SDI cables, or bulkhead connectors
for any add-on storage devices. The hardware required is shipped with the
individual storage device. Instructions for installing the following add-ons are
contained in Chapter 5:
•
RA9x disk drives (Section 5.7)
•
SA7x enclosures (Section 5.11)
•
ESE50 SSDs (Section 5.8)
•
TA8x7 tape storage system (Section 5.12)
2.14.1 SA900 Storage Array Configurations
Table 2–19 lists the factory configurations for the SA900 storage arrays. All
configurations comply with DSA requirements and can be used with any SDI
controller protocol and cable. Figures 2–5 and 5–18 show factory configurations
and the storage device add-on sequence, respectively.
Note
There are no SA900 factory configurations that include the ESE50. The
ESE50 is a field add-on only.

The storage arrays are not line-frequency dependent. The input currents (that is,
startup, PH1, PH2, PH3, and neutral) are for nominal voltages of either 120 Vac
or 240 Vac to neutral. These correspond directly to 208 Vac or 416 Vac phase-tophase, respectively. Nominal voltages of 110 Vac and 220 Vac have proportionally
higher phase currents on a ratio of 120:110 and 240:220 to the current specified
in Tables 2–22 and 2–23.

Installing a Storage Array
This chapter explains how to install a storage array. All the configurations
discussed in this chapter, except the SA550–UA/SA550–UD storage arrays, have
storage devices installed and the internal cabling connected at the factory. See
Chapter 5 for a description of the procedures for installing add-on storage devices
and upgrading storage arrays.
The SA550–UA and SA550–UD storage arrays are used for mounting RA8x disk
drives. See the Cabinet Management Program Installation Guide for installation
instructions.
The procedures in this chapter are applicable to the following cabinet types:
•
H9646—The four-level cabinet used for the SA550, SA600/SA800, and
SA650/SA850 storage arrays
•
H9A00—The five-level cabinet used for the SA900 storage array
Installing a storage array is a multistep process. The steps you complete are
determined by the type of storage array. In addition to the standard safety and
electrostatic discharge precautions you should always use, completion of the
following steps may be required:
1. Unpacking the cabinet (see Section 3.3)
2. Assembling the H9A00 cabinet (see Section 3.4)
1
3. Connecting the external SDI cables (see Section 3.5)
4. Recording RA7x disk drive serial numbers (see Section 3.6)
1
5. Selecting the input line voltage (see Section 3.7)
6. Installing OCP label (see Section 3.8)1
7. Connecting power (see Section 3.9)
8. Verifying proper operation of the storage devices as described in the user or
service manuals

This step is not required for all installations.
Installing a Storage Array 3–1
Always observe the following precautions:
WARNING
Hazardous voltages are present inside the storage cabinet and enclosures.
You must be a qualified Digital Multivendor Services engineer to install
storage arrays or storage devices. Otherwise, you may injure yourself or
others and you may damage the equipment. To be considered a qualified
Digital Multivendor Services engineer, you must have successfully
completed the electrical safety courses listed in Table 1.
CAUTION
Do not attempt to install the storage array unless you have received
training in electrostatic discharge (ESD) procedures and have taken
proper precautions against ESD. Wear an ESD grounding strap properly
connected to a known ground, such as the SA7x enclosure chassis (see
Figure 3–1), or the ESD ground bolts in the SA900 storage array. The
SA900 grounding bolt is in the second mounting hole from the top in the
right-hand mounting strip, both front and rear.

3.2 Site Requirements
The storage array must be installed in a computer room environment that meets
the following guidelines:
•
The computing environment must be Class A. (See Chapter 2 for a description
of the environmental guidelines.)
•
The minimum space required in front of and behind the storage array is 86
cm (3 ft). This space is required for air flow, cooling, and servicing the storage
array.
•
The installation floor must safely bear the weight of the storage array as
defined in Chapter 2.
3.3 Unpacking a Storage Array Cabinet
The storage array cabinet is sealed in a barrier bag with desiccant and packed in
a cardboard box. The box is attached to a wooden shipping pallet. Figures 3–2
and 3–3 show how storage arrays are packed for shipment.
CAUTION

the storage array is environmentally stabilized. Failure to comply may
result in degraded equipment performance.
3.3.1 Installing the Unloading Ramps
Unloading the cabinet from the shipping pallet requires using a set of unloading
ramps. There are two ramp types: one for the H9646 and one for the H9A00.
Unless otherwise noted, the following procedures apply to both ramp types:
1. Slide the two ramps out of the carton.
2. Inspect the ramps, ramp side rails, and metal hardware for the following:
•
Any cracks in the ramp that are more than 25 percent of the ramp’s depth
•
Knots or knotholes that penetrate the thickness of the ramp and are
greater than 50 percent of the width of the ramp
•
Loose, missing, or broken ramp side rails
•
Loose, missing, or bent metal hardware
CAUTION
Do not use the ramp when any of these conditions exist.
You must either order a new ramp (part numbers are listed in
Appendix B) or use an alternate means for unloading the cabinet.
3. Fully extend each ramp. For the H9646 cabinet, insert the steel dowel into
the slot on each ramp, as shown in Figure 3–4.
4. Attach the unloading ramps to the pallet by fitting the metal prongs into the
pallet holes.
•
For the H9646 cabinet, the holes are at the rear of the pallet.
•
For the H9A00 cabinet, the holes are at the front of the pallet.
3.3.2 Unloading the Storage Array
Use the following procedure to unload the cabinet:
WARNING
The desiccant bag is a potential hazard during the unloading process and
must be removed before unloading the cabinet from the shipping pallet.

these bulkheads, you must first remove the cabinet’s rear panel. (Refer to
Figure 3–9.)
Figures 3–13 and 3–14 show the I/O bulkhead locations for connecting RA9x and
SA7x external SDI cables, respectively, to the SA900 storage array.
After connecting the external SDI cables, route them through the two slots in the
filler panel. To feed cables through the slots more easily:
1. First remove the cable retainers by removing the two screws that secure each
retainer. (Refer to Figure 3–8.)
2. Push the cables back into the slots.
3. When all cables are positioned in the slots, replace the cable retainers.
Table 3–2 lists the external SDI cables. For dual porting, two sets of cables are
required.

Storage Array Add-Ons and Upgrades
This chapter explains how to install add-on storage devices
arrays.
1
and upgrade storage
"Add-ons" are storage devices installed in an existing storage array without
changing its basic configuration. For example, you can add two RA90 disk drives
to the SA600–FA storage array, creating an SA600–HA storage array, without
moving existing storage devices or cables.
"Upgrading" a storage array involves changing the configuration by installing
enclosures in a storage array that previously had no enclosures. For example,
you can add SA7x enclosures to an SA600 storage array, creating an SA650.
During this procedure, storage devices already installed may have to be moved
and the SDI cables and power cords rerouted.
Add-ons can include one or more of the following devices:
•
RA9x disk drives
•
SA7x enclosures
•
ESE50 solid state disk drive
•
TA8x7 tape storage subsystem
The term "storage devices" is the collective name for all of these devices.
Specifically, this chapter explains how to perform the following:
•
Unpack storage devices upon delivery and pack them for shipment or storage.
•
Use a Digital-approved lifting device to install enclosures and large disk
drives.
•
Install RA9x disk drives in the SA600/SA800, SA650/SA850, and SA900
storage arrays.
•
Install ESE50 solid state disk drives in the SA900 storage array.
•
Install SA7x enclosures in the SA550, SA650, SA850, and SA900 storage
arrays.
•
Install TA8x7 storage subsystems in SA900 storage arrays.
•
Upgrade an SA600 or SA800 storage array to an SA650 or SA850 storage
array.

5.11.3 Installing SDI Cables and Power Cords
The SA900 storage array is shipped with internal cables and power cords
for storage devices installed at the factory. However, when you install SA7x
enclosures, you must install the internal SDI cables and connect the power cords.
If external SDI cables are required, they are ordered separately and shipped at
the same time the add-on is shipped. (Table 3–2 lists the external SDI cables.)
The H9A00 cabinet includes a left and a right vertical I/O bulkhead as shown in
Figure 5–39. Storage devices are connected by SDI cables to one of the five sets
of eight connectors on each bulkhead. A total of 10 devices can be connected to
the I/O bulkheads. The RA9x drive uses two SDI cables; the SA7x enclosure uses
two special one-to-four cables. Each cable terminates with four connectors. The
SA900 storage array can accommodate a maximum of 10 RA9x disk drives or 10
SA7x enclosures or 80 ports.
Use the following procedure to install and connect SDI cables and power cords:
1. Make sure that the Line Voltage Selector switch is in the proper position
and the Master On/Off switch on the enclosure is off. (See Section 3.7 for
information about setting the Line Voltage Selector switch.)
2. Install the cables from the drives and the enclosures on the left side of the
cabinet to the left vertical I/O bulkhead; install the cables from the drives
and the enclosures on the right side of the cabinet to the right vertical I/O
bulkhead. (See Figure 5–39.)
3. Connect the SDI cable connectors to the Port A and Port B connections on the
rear of the SA7x enclosure. Connect the other end of the cable connectors to
the vertical I/O bulkhead and secure with two 6-32 x 3/8-inch sems screws.
(The top four ports in each group of eight correspond to Port A, and the
bottom four ports in each group of eight correspond to Port B.)
4. Connect the power cords to the rear of the SA7x enclosure. (See
Figure 5–40.)

Environmental Stabilization
Always ensure environmental stabilization of the disk drive or prior to
installation or before operation if the disk drive has been removed from its
normal operating site. Otherwise, the drive media or associated electronics may
be damaged. Environmental stabilization includes temperature and humidity
stabilization.
When condensation is visible on the outside of the disk drive, stabilize
the disk drive or enclosure in the operating environment for six hours or until
the condensation is no longer visible, whichever is longer. Do not insert the disk
drive into the SA7x enclosure until it is fully stabilized.
When there is no condensation visible on the drive, Table A–1 lists the
