Introduction
This manual covers the DVA-08K series of RAID subsystems.
With its basic hardware redundancy and the capability of fast I/O transfer, the 2U RAID SATA
subsystem is an ideal solution to meet the ever increasing demands for addition of storage
capacity. Despite its ease of use, the subsystem does not compromise data protection for
convenience. The subsystem’s embedded firmware offers the same protection and maintenance functionalities as those designed for an enterprise-level RAID solution. The subsystems
provide unprecedented configuration flexibility and allow for the customization of storage
subsystems to meet specific demands. It is a rigorous and durable subsystem that can be easily configured and operated.
Fully featured RAID redundancy (which provides advanced data protection) ensures that the
complete range of RAID levels (RAID 0, 1(0+1), 3, 5, 10, 30 and 50) is supported by the controller head. A long list of sophisticated firmware functions (dedicated/global hot-spares, battery protected disk cache, configurable reaction schemes against drive errors, remote and
real-time array monitoring, and more) further guarantees the overall availability of valuable
data.
IT managers using the RAID subsystems will be able to rapidly develop a comprehensive storage array. And the modular nature of the subsystem minimizes the maintenance effort to use
the RAID appliance.
2.1
Product Overview
The subsystem comes with two (2) SCSI-320 host channels interfaced through four (4) VHDCI
68-pin SCSI ports. The subsystem comes in a 2U-profile rack-mountable chassis which houses
a RAID controller module featuring complete RAID configuration and data protection functionality. The subsystem’s operation is protected by redundant, hot-swappable power supplies
and cooling fan modules. Designed for a high level availability, all major components are hotreplaceable including its Li-ION battery and the RAID-protected disk drives.
The subsystem supports high-density array capacity by its eight drive bays for SATA-II interface disk drives. The subsystem facilitates large I/O transfer, over its dual PCI-X buses architecture, and transmission of block I/Os over flexible caching and a dedicated XOR engine. The
subsystem is ideal for direct-attached data storage, backup, and retrieval. It combines the
capabilities and block-level performance of RAID storage with the reliable SCSI transfer technologies.
Configured arrays are easily combined with multiple ID/LUNs that appear to the host ports,
turning massive capacity into manageable units for data-sharing in a heterogeneous environment.
The RAID 2U-profile, SCSI-to-SATA RAID storage comes in two different models. The only difference between the two models is the number of SATA-II drive bays.
SCSI Host Ports
Connectivity: The subsystem features a 320MB/s bandwidth from each of its SCSI host channels. The dual-stack VHDCI connectors on the rear panel facilitate the connection to multiple
host computers and combining the storage capacities of multiple RAID subsystems. Its backward compatibility with older SCSI protocols requires minimum investment for upgrading
equipment. Storage volumes are associated with SCSI ID/LUNs on the host channels. The
subsystem firmware provides flexible configurations of storage volumes which include, logical
drives in supported RAID 0, 1 (0+1), 3, and 5 levels, logical volumes that consist of one or
more logical drives, and the logical partitions of the previously mentioned configurations.
These volumes then appear as SCSI targets over the host links.

RAID Subsystem DVA-08K | Installation Manual
Channels: The SCSI ID/LUN mapping method enables users to associate a storage volume
with multiple IDs or LUNs on the host channels. The mapping method can easily cope with
host-side configurations such as clustered servers or high availability path redundancy. On the
drive side, all of the eight (8) SATA-II drives are connected each through a dedicated SATA
channel. Each drive channel is routed to an enclosure drive tray that is equipped with a standard SATA connector with of hot-swap capability. The methods used for assembling physical
drives, fault management, and status monitoring are identical to that used with Bosch’s long
line of RAID storage enclosures.

CAUTION!
Be careful not to warp, twist, or contort the drive tray in any way (e.g., by dropping it or resting heavy objects on it). The drive tray has been customized to fit into the drive bays in the
subsystem. If the drive bay superstructure is deformed or altered, the drive trays may not fit
into the drive bay.
2.3.3
The RAID Controller Module
The RAID controller module contains a main circuit board, a preinstalled 256MB capacity or
above DDR RAM DIMM module, and the necessary support interfaces. The controller module
contains no user-serviceable components. Except when replacing a faulty unit or installing/
upgrading the cache memory inside, the controller module should never be removed or
opened.
CAUTION!
Although the RAID controller can be removed, the only time you should touch the controller
itself is to replace the memory module or to install the memory module. The RAID controller is
built of sensitive components and unnecessary tampering can damage the controller.
Controller Module Interfaces
The subsystems provide external interfaces to host computers and management station(s)
through the RAID controller’s rear-side faceplate as shown in Figure 2.10.

i
This subsystems come with preset configurations for channel mode and channel ID settings,
and should be sufficient for most applications.
•
Ethernet Port
All controller modules on the subsystems come with a single 10/100BasedT RJ-45 Ethernet port. The Ethernet port is used for local or remote management through the network
using the Bosch RAIDWatch GUI manager or Telnet protocol.
•
COM Port
All controller modules come with one RS-232C (audio jack) serial port. The serial port is
used for local access to the system-embedded configuration utility over the included
serial port cable.
DIMM Module
The controller module comes with a preinstalled 256MB capacity or above DDR RAM DIMM
module and can support a larger capacity up to 2GB. The DIMM module is mounted in an easily accessible location on the controller board. However, when the DIMM module is being
changed, the controller module must be removed from the subsystem chassis.
2.3.4
Battery Backup Unit
The Li-ION battery backup unit (BBU) module sustains cache memory for days after a power
failure. It is installed on the upper left corner of the controller module in the rear of subsystem
chassis. Please refer to Section 3 Hardware Installation for installation details.
Fig. 2.11
BBU Module
In accordance with international transportation regulations, the BBU module is only charged
to between 35% and 45% of its total capacity when shipped. Therefore, when powering on the
subsystem for the first time the BBU will begin to charge its batteries to their full capacity. It
normally requires approximately twelve (12) hours for the battery to be fully charged. If the
battery is not fully charged after twelve (12) hours (its LED is still flashing), there is a problem
with the BBU module and you should contact your subsystem vendor immediately. While the
battery is being charged, the LED on the BBU rear panel and the fifth LED on the controller
module will flash.
You can check the status of the battery’s charge via Bosch RAIDWatch Manager or the firmware utility screen.
2.3.5
Power Supply Units
The SATA-based RAID subsystems are equipped with two (2) redundant, hot-swappable, 2U,
350W power supply unit (PSUs) modules. The PSU is permanently mounted into a 2U high

(dual-level) bracket especially designed to house both the PSU and a cooling module mounted
underneath. PSUs can be found on either side of the controller module.
Each PSU comes with a single power socket for power cord plug-in and a single power switch
for you to turn the PSU on and off. Each PSU also comes with two embedded cooling fans to
provide sufficient airflow to keep the PSU cool. A single LED is used to indicate the PSU status. A handle at the back of the PSU has been especially designed to enable you to remove the
PSU from the subsystem while the system is still online. This should only be done if the PSU
has failed and needs to be replaced.
NOTICE!
Hot-swapping the PSU also removes the cooling module at the lower slot.
i
A retention screw at the upper right corner of the PSU module is used to secure the PSU to
the enclosure. If the PSU needs to be removed, the retention screw must be removed first.
When installing a new PSU module, make sure that the retention screw has been firmly
secured.

Advanced Fault-Preventative Operation
The cooling fan modules support dual-speed operation modes that help to protect the subsystem in the event of component failure or extreme working condition.
Intelligent Dual Speed Operation
The cooling fans operate with two rotation speeds. Under normal operating conditions, the
cooling fans run at the low speed, which is sufficient for maintaining efficient airflow across
components. Under the following conditions, cooling fans raise their rotation speed to
increase the airflow:
1.
Component Failure: if another cooling fan module, a PSU, or a temperature sensor fails,
the remaining cooling fan(s) automatically raises its rotation speed.
2.
Elevated Temperature: if the temperature breaches the upper threshold set for any of the
interior temperature sensors, the cooling fans automatically raises its rotation speed.
3.
During the subsystem initialization stage, the cooling fans operate at the high speed and
return to lower speed once the initialization process is completed and no erroneous condition is detected.
NOTICE!
i
There are two values set for the upper temperature thresholds. One is set for event notification and the other triggering higher fan rotation speed. The preset value for event notification
can be changed using the firmware-embedded configuration utility, while the fan speed trigger is not a user’s option.
2.4
Subsystem Monitoring
The SATA-based RAID subsystem comes with a number of different monitoring methods that
provide you with continual updates on the status of the system and individual components.
The following monitoring features are included in the subsystem.

interface or Ethernet link to the RJ-45 LAN port.
2.4.4
Audible Alarms
The subsystems come with audible alarms that are triggered when certain active components
fail or when certain (controller or subsystem) thresholds are exceeded. If you hear hastily
repeated beep tones from the subsystems it is imperative that you immediately determine and
rectify the problem.
Event notification messages indicate the completion of or the condition when proceeding with
array configuration tasks and are always accompanied by two or three successive and prolonged beeps.
CAUTION!
Failing to respond when a critical alarm is heard can lead to permanent damage of the subsystem. When an audible alarm is heard, rectify the problem as soon as possible.
2.5
Hot-Swappable Components
2.5.1
Hot-Swap Capabilities
The subsystem comes with a number of hot-swappable components. A hot-swap component
is one that can be exchanged while the subsystem is still online without affecting the operational integrity of the subsystem. These components should only be removed from the subsystem when they are being replaced. At no other time should these components be removed
from the subsystem.
2.5.2
Components
The following components are all hot-swappable:
•
•
•
•
2.5.3
Power supply units (PSUs)
Cooling fan modules
Hard drives
BBU module
Normalized Airflow
Proper subsystem cooling is referred to as “normalized” airflow. Normalized airflow ensures
the sufficient cooling of the subsystem and is only attained when all components are properly
installed. Therefore, a failed component should only be hot-swapped when a replacement is
available. If a failed component is removed but not replaced, permanent damage to the subsystem can result.

BBU Warnings and Precautions
The BBU module sustains cache memory in the event of a power failure or in the unlikely event
if both PSUs have failed. Having the protection to cached data by a BBU is highly recommended. The BBU provides additional data security and helps minimize the chance of data
loss during power outage.
•
Replace the BBU once it shows symptoms failing to hold the charge. Although the life
expectancy of a BBU is determined by the times it has been charged or discharged, a BBU
can approximately last for one year. If the battery recharge time is obviously longer than
the suggested 12 hours, or if the fault LED is lit, replace the battery.
•
Install or replace the BBU module only with a BBU module supplied by your subsystem
vendor. Use of battery cells provided by another source will void our warranty.
•
Always dispose of discharged or used batteries in an ecologically responsible manner.
Dispose used BBUs at authorized battery disposal sites only.
•
Do not use nor leave the BBU near a heat source or direct sunlight. Heat can melt the
insulation and damage other safety features of battery cells, possibly leading it to acid
leak and result in flames or explosion.
•
Do not immerse the BBU in water nor allow it to get wet. Its protective features can be
damaged. Abnormal chemical reactions may occur, possibly causing functional defects,
acid leak, and other hazardous results.

Do not disassemble or modify the BBU. If disassembled, the BBU could leak acid, overheat, emit smoke, burst and/or ignite.
•
Do not pierce the BBU with a sharp object, strike it with a hammer, step on it, or throw it.
These actions could damage or deform it, internal short-circuiting can occur, possibly
causing functional defects, acid leaks, and other hazardous results.
•
If the BBU leaks, gives off a bad odor, generates heat, becomes discolored or deformed,
or in any way appears abnormal during use, recharging or storage, immediately remove it
from the subsystem and stop using it. If this is discovered when you first use the BBU,
return it to Bosch or your system vendor.

A detailed packing list can be found in your product shipping package or product CD.
Rackmounting
The subsystem is easily installed into a standard 19-inch rack cabinet using the mounting
holes on the sides of chassis.
The enclosure chassis can be installed using self-purchased mounting rails.
3.5.1
Considerations for Installation Site and Chassis
•
Make sure you have an appropriate site location and cables prepared with adequate
lengths to connect to main power and other devices.
•
At least two people will be required to install the chassis. Disk drives should only be
installed after the chassis is properly mounted. The chassis can weigh about 24Kgs without disk drives.
•
•
The following tools are necessary for mounting the chassis:
–
#4 Phillips-head screwdriver
–
Wrenches may be necessary, depending on the rack type
Use the included M5 or M6 screws for securing the chassis through its front mounting
ears.
•
More details about the use of optional slide rails are given in the Installation Guide that
came with the slide rail package.
3.5.2
Mounting Holes Positions
•
Integrators may design their own brackets or slide rails using the twenty-two (22) mounting holes on the sides of chassis.
•
There are six (6) mounting holes with six (6) M4 nuts near the end of the chassis on each
side. Shown below are the locations of these mounting holes. (See the arrow marks in
Figure 3.2). See the next diagram for another group of mounting holes on a horizontal
line.

Use M5 or M6 pan-head screws to secure the chassis to the front cabinet posts.
Drive Tray Installation
Once the hard drives have been installed in the drive trays, the drive trays can be installed into
the subsystem.
WARNING!
All drive trays must be installed into the enclosure even if they do not contain a hard drive. If
the trays are not installed into the enclosure, the ventilation required for cooling will be disturbed and the subsystem will overheat.
1.
Make sure that the hard drive is secured to the drive tray. Make sure the key-lock is in the
unlocked position. The key-lock is unlocked if the groove on its face is in a horizontal orientation. If the groove is in a vertical position, as shown in Figure 3.3, then the key-lock is
locked and the front flap on the drive tray cannot be opened.
Fig. 3.3 Front View of an Individual Drive Tray
2.
Open the front flap on the drive tray. (See Figure 3.4). To open the flap, push the release
button on the front bezel. The front flap will open in an upward direction.
Fig. 3.4 Opening Drive Tray Front Flap
3.
Align the drive tray with the slot in which you wish to insert it. Make sure that it is resting
on the rails inside the module slot. Once the drive tray is lined up with the slot, gently
slide it in. This should be done smoothly and gently.
4.
Close the front flap on the drive tray. Make sure the front flap is closed properly. Closing
the front flap ensures that the drive tray is firmly connected to the corresponding connector on the backplane board. If the front flap is not closed properly, the connection

Subsystem Monitoring
This chapter provides information on how to monitor the subsystem.
4.1
Subsystem Monitoring Overview
The subsystem is equipped with a variety of self-monitoring features that help to keep subsystem managers informed of the subsystem operational status. These monitoring features
provide vital feedback to help you maintain the operational integrity of the subsystem. Prompt
response to warnings and subsystem component failure notifications will ensure safe operation of the subsystem and help ensure the longevity of the subsystems.
Self-monitoring features include:
•
Firmware (FW): The RAID controllers in the subsystems come with pre-installed FW. The
FW can be accessed using either the LCD keypad panel or a PC running terminal software
through the RS-232C (audio jack) serial port. Device status information can be obtained
from the FW.
•
Bosch RAIDWatch: Bosch RAIDWatch is a fully integrated Java based Graphical User
Interface (GUI) that came with the subsystem and can be used to monitor and maintain
the subsystem using web browsers. Connection to a Bosch RAIDWatch station is made
using the existing Ethernet ports.
•
The Bosch RAIDWatch Panel View can be customized to show a direct, graphical representation of the subsystem in the content panel of the Bosch RAIDWatch screen. Panel
View allows you to quickly determine the operational status of critical components.
•
Configuration Client: The powerful Configuration Client sub-module can be used to keep
you informed of system events via a variety of communication methods like email, LAN
broadcast, fax, pager, MSN messenger, ICQ, and SMS. The sub-module runs as an independent program from Bosch RAIDWatch main program. The Configuration Client helps
prevent blind time and keeps you constantly informed as to the status of the storage
management subsystem.
•
LEDs: Device-status-indicating LEDs are placed on all of the subsystems’ active components. These LEDs inform you of the integrity of a given component or a given link. You
should become familiar with the different LEDs on the subsystem and be aware of their
functions. (See Figure 4.2)
•
Audible Alarm: An audible alarm is present on the subsystem controller board and will be
triggered if any of a number of threatening events occurred. These events usually jeopardize the functional and operational integrity of the controller board and must be heeded
at all times. Events such as a breaching of the temperature threshold will trigger the
alarm and if an onsite subsystem manager is present, the manager should, using either
the LCD panel or the PC hyper-terminal, determine the cause of the alarm and take the
appropriate corrective measures. (See Figure 4.3)
•
Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C): The I2C bus monitors the operational integrity of the cooling modules, sensors for RAID controller board/backplane temperature and voltage readings.
Subsystem monitoring is a necessary part of subsystem management. If failure events or other
disruptive events are detected and reported, the subsystem managers must take the appropriate action to rectify the problem. Failure to act in a properly specified manner to a system
event (like overheating) can cause severe and permanent damage to the subsystem.

The subsystem has a novel approach to stabilizing the temperature within the subsystem:
When the sensors within the enclosure detect critical working conditions, such as high ambient temperature or the failure of any cooling or PSU module, the system will turn the cooling
fans to high speed to extract more heat. Once the ambient temperature cools down to normal
or the faulty module has been replaced, the cooling fans return to normal speed.

Audible Alarm
Different subsystem environmental and operational parameters (i.e., temperature, etc.) have
been assigned a range of values between which they can fluctuate. If either the upper or lower
thresholds are exceeded, an audible alarm will automatically be triggered. The alarm will also
be triggered when an active component of the subsystem fails. If the subsystem manager is
onsite and hears the alarm, the manager will have to read the error message on the LCD
screen or the PC terminal in order to determine what has triggered the alarm. After determining what has occurred, the subsystem manager must take appropriate actions to rectify the
problem.
CAUTION!
When an alarm is triggered, it is necessary for you to determine the problem. If the audible
alarm is ignored and the problem is not rectified, unexpected damages may occur.

Subsystem Connection and Operation
This chapter introduces sample topologies, configuration options and server connections for
the RAID subsystems and discusses both the power on and power off procedures.
5.1
Basic Configuration Rules
When you are configuring your storage subsystem, follow these basic rules:
•
Using a mix of LVD and legacy devices, such as devices using single-ended signaling, is
not recommended. Use LVD terminators if all your devices support LVD signaling. Please
refer to the documentation provided with your SCSI devices to avoid possible conflicts.
•
When selecting the number of hard drives to be included in a logical configuration that
should be presented through the host channels, the transfer rates and the mechanical
performance of the hard disks should be considered. The combined bandwidth of the
two SCSI host channels is 640MB/s, sufficient for most applications. If properly configured, combining subsystems or drive enclosures may increase the number of drives and
help to bring out the most of IOPs performance.
•
If you consider cascading multiple enclosures, considerations may include the characteristics of your I/O load. Select the correct combination of optimization mode and a specific RAID level.
•
An optimal configuration is always a compromise among different factors. For instance, a
large array with many drive members may be more efficient, but the chance of failing a
member is also increased.
•
The drives in the same logical array should have the same capacity; it is preferred that all
the drives in the enclosure have the same capacity.
•
A spare drive should have a minimum capacity equivalent to the largest drive that is to be
replaced. If the capacity of the spare is less than the capacity of the drive to be replaced,
then the controller will not proceed with the failed drive rebuild.
5.2
SCSI Connection Overview
The SCSI host ports connect to SCSI-320 host adapters (HBA) that comply with 320MB/s
transfer rate and SCSI-3 protocol, best capable of 64-bit/133MHz PCI operation. Connection
of the subsystem’s SCSI ports is flexible. For example, you may use the two VHDCI ports of a
dual-stacked connector to connect a host channel to two separate, clustered servers. If high
availability or path redundancy software is applied, a total of 4 VHDCI ports are available for
cross-linking to host adapters. As long as access contention is not of the concern, host connection can be very flexible. In the following sections, configuration diagrams will be provided
to illustrate the possible uses of the subsystem in different application environments.
Note that these configurations are only recommendations and do not intend to impose limitations such as the use of high availability software or cascading multiple enclosures. The same
configuration principles applies to the subsystem.
The RAID subsystems support 2 SCSI host channels and 2 dual-stack connectors featuring
support for SCSI-320 protocol (also known as Ultra-320), the latest iteration of the SCSI drive
interface standard. The SCSI-320 enables maximum data transfer rates up to 320MB/second
per channel from host computers to the subsystems or expansion systems. This is twice the
bandwidth as the Ultra160 standard, allowing you optimal performance and flexibility with
configuring storage applications.
5.2.1
SCSI Cables
One SCSI cable is required with each subsystem for host connection. If you wish to connect
the second host channel, a second cable is required. Use only high quality SCSI-320 cables
Bosch Security Systems
F.01U.027.797 | V1 | 2006.05
32
en | Subsystem Connection and Operation
RAID Subsystem DVA-08K | Installation Manual
from a reputable manufacturer. To ensure optimum performance, it is necessary to use
proper, high quality SCSI-320 compatible cables. Failure to do so will result in downgraded
performance.
5.2.2
SCSI Port on the Controller Rear Panel
•
The SATA-based subsystem is equipped with two dual-stacked connectors on the back of
the enclosure. Each dual-stacked connector comes with two 68-pin VHDCI ports that is
specified as a “Channel # In” or “Channel # Out” port.
The SCSI ports are specified as “In” or “Out” for ease of identification. As long as each
device on a SCSI bus is assigned with a unique ID and the SCSI bus properly terminated,
there are no limitations with connecting a specific SCSI port to the host- or drive-side
devices.
Fig. 5.1
•
Dual-stacked Connectors on the Controller Faceplate
The subsystem requires an external VHDCI-to-VHDCI SCSI round cable to connect the
subsystem to a host adapter.
•
One (1) audio-jack-to-DB9 cable is provided to facilitate the connection of the COM1 port
for local terminal emulation access to the array.
•
•
Two (2) power cords are provided for the power connections to the power sources.
The RJ-45 Ethernet cable for network management connection is a user-supplied item.
Use straight-through Ethernet cables with RJ-45 plugs.
5.2.3
SCSI Termination
Correct SCSI termination procedures require that the last device on the SCSI bus be terminated. If the last device is not terminated or if devices other than the last are terminated,
erratic SCSI bus behavior may occur.
An auto-detection, on-board terminator is built into the DVA-08K. You do not need to install an
external terminator when a subsystem acts as the last device in the daisy chain configuration.
The on-board terminator default is enabled. If the subsystem is not the last device in the daisy
chain configuration, the terminator will be automatically disabled. Although it is not recommended, if you prefer to disable the firmware setting for the on-board terminator using the
LCD keypad panel on the subsystem, RS232C terminal session, or Bosch RAIDWatch management software, the auto-detection function is also disabled.
Typically, the host computer or host adapter (SCSI card inside the PC) is the first device and
some are already terminated. When installing the DVA-08K on a SCSI bus with other devices,
be sure to observe the above rules regarding all devices on the SCSI bus. Consult your host
computer and/or host adapter manual for additional information on correct termination procedures.
NOTICE!
i
It is recommended not to change the firmware default setting for the SCSI terminator so the
auto-detection function can operate.

Host Connection Topology
Fig. 5.2 Cascaded Subsystems Connected to Two Host Computers
In the example shown in Figure 5.2, the SCSI ports are connected to different host computers.
This provides both path and host computer redundancy. If one of the host channels becomes
disconnected, or if the cable connecting one of the host ports to the host computer is damaged, the second path can transmit data from the subsystem to one of the host computers.
Similarly, in the clustered hosts configuration, the same array can be accessed through different data paths and downtime will be minimized.
To obtain more disk capacity, the “Out” ports are used to cascade another subsystem.
The host-side connection can be made as the following:
1.
Directly to servers or workstations equipped with SCSI HBAs.
2.
Connect two subsystems on the same host buses for a larger combined capacity.
3.
Cross-link the host ports on subsystem(s) to clustered servers.
High availability configurations, such as clustering or redundant paths settings, can be applied
with adequate software control. The same logical array can be associated with two or more
different host IDs to facilitate access down through different HBAs.

Subsystem Maintenance
Constant monitoring and maintenance of your SATA-based subsystems will minimize the
chance of system downtime and preserve the working integrity of the system for a longer
period of time. If any of the subsystem plug-in modules fails, they must be replaced as soon as
possible.
6.1
Overview
CAUTION!
Do not remove a failed component from the subsystem until you have a replacement on hand.
If you remove a failed component without replacing it, the internal airflow will be disrupted
and the system will overheat causing damage to the subsystem.
All of the following components can be replaced in case of failure:
6.1.1
1.
Controller module – Section 6.2 Replacing Controller Module Components
2.
Memory module – Section 6.3 Replacing or Upgrading Memory Modules
3.
BBU module – Section 6.4 Replacing a Faulty BBU
4.
PSU modules – Section 6.5 Replacing a Failed PSU Module
5.
Cooling fan modules – Section 6.6 Replacing a Failed Cooling Fan Module
6.
Hard drives – Section 6.7.2 Replacing a Failed Hard Drive
General Notes on Component Replacement
•
With the exception of the RAID controller module, all the components on the subsystems,
including the PSU modules, cooling fan modules, BBU, and drive trays are hot-swappable
and can be changed while the subsystem is still in operation.
•
Qualified technicians who are familiar with the subsystem should be the only ones who
make component replacements. If you are not familiar with the subsystems and not familiar with RAID subsystem maintenance in general, it is strongly advised that you refer subsystem maintenance to a suitably qualified maintenance technician.
•
Normalized airflow is directly dependent upon the presence of all subsystem components. Even if a subsystem component fails, it should not be removed from the subsystem until a replacement is readily at hand and can be quickly installed. Removing a
subsystem component without a replacement can lead to permanent subsystem damage.
•
When replacing any hot-swappable component, caution should be taken to ensure that
the components are handled in an appropriate manner. Rough or improper handling of
components can lead to irreparable damage.
•
When removing a controller module from the subsystem, ensure that the power has been
turned off and that all precautionary measures, without exception, are adhered to. The
controller board contains very sensitive components and can be easily damaged.
CAUTION!
When inserting a removable module, DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE FORCE! Forcing or slamming a
module can damage the pins on the module connectors either on the module itself or on the
backplane. Gently push the module until it reaches the end of module slot. Feel the contact
resistance and use slightly more force to ensure the module connectors are correctly mated. If
the module comes with extraction levers or retention screws, use them to secure the module.

RAID Subsystem DVA-08K | Installation Manual
Replacing Controller Module Components
Overview
The controller module should never be removed unless the following replaceable components
need to be accessed:
•
•
Cache memory DIMM module: If a larger capacity DIMM module is required.
Controller module itself: If the controller module in a single-controller model fails, it is
necessary to power down the subsystem and replace the controller.
If a DIMM module or RAID controller fails, contact your vendor immediately for a replacement.
To replace any of these components, the controller module must first be removed from the
subsystem.
6.2.2
Notes on Controller Module Maintenance
•
The controller module contains a DIMM module. It is not recommended to re-use the
DIMM module extracted from a failed controller unless you have a similar RAID subsystem
that can be used to test the module. You can contact your vendor for sending the failed
controller in for repair.
•
When replacing the controller module, it must be remembered that the controller board
is one of the most sensitive components in the subsystem. All previously stipulated safety
precautions must be strictly adhered to. Failure to adhere to these precautions can result
in permanent damage to the controller board, resulting in lengthy delays.
•
Prior to replacing the controller module, it is imperative for your own safety to be sure no
power is being supplied to the system.
6.2.3
Removing the Controller Module
To remove the controller module:
1.
Stop host I/Os or host applications to avoid losing data or causing data inconsistency.
2.
Turn the subsystem power off: If possible power off the subsystem in the way described
in Chapter 4. If it is not possible to do this turn off both PSU modules and disconnect the
power cords.
3.
Disconnect all cables: There may be a number of different cables attached to the controller module. These cables could include SCSI cables for host connections, an RS-232C
(audio jack) cable for serial port connection, and an Ethernet cable for network connection. Prior to removing the controller module, all these cables should be removed.
4.
Loosen the retention hand screws: Hard screws are located on both sides of the RAID
controller’s faceplate. Press these screws and use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen them
so that the controller can be removed from chassis. (See Figure 6.1)
Fig. 6.1
5.
Loosen Controller Module Retention Screws
Pull the controller module out: Once the retention screws have been removed; gently pull
the controller module out of the subsystem chassis.

Replacing the Controller Module
1.
Remove the failed controller module.
2.
Install a DIMM module on the new controller module.
3.
Insert the replacement controller. Align the controller module with the module bay at the
rear of the subsystem. Gently slide the controller module in.
4.
Fasten the hand screws. Once the controller module has been completely inserted into
the subsystem chassis, secure the controller module to the chassis by tightening the
hand screws at the sides of the controller rear panel.
5.
Connect the controller module cables: Reconnect all of the cables that were previously
disconnected from the controller module. These may include SCSI cables for host and
expansion connections, an RS-232C (audio jack) cable for serial port connection, and an
Ethernet cable for network connection.
6.
Power on: Once the new controller module has been properly installed and the cables
have been correctly connected, turn the subsystem power on.
6.3
Replacing or Upgrading Memory Modules
6.3.1
Memory Module Installation Overview
•
The subsystems come with a pre-installed 256MB (or above) DDR RAM DIMM module on
the controller. The controller supports one memory module for the capacity up to 1GB. If
a DDR RAM DIMM modules with a different size is preferred or the original memory module has failed in some way, the pre-installed module must be removed and replaced by a
new one. Replacement and installation instructions are described fully below.
•
The DIMM module is located on the controller board. The controller board is a sensitive
component and must be treated with care to avoid being damaged.
CAUTION!
The controller board in the module contains sensitive components. Please ensure that all antistatic precautions stipulated above are strictly adhered to. Only qualified technicians can
replace a DIMM module.
6.3.2
Selecting a Memory Module
If the memory module mounted on the controller is going to be replaced, the following factors
should be considered when purchasing replacement modules.
•
Pre-installed DIMM module: The subsystem comes with a 256MB DDR RAM module preinstalled on the controller board. If you wish to change the size of the DIMM, then a new,
separately purchased DIMM can be installed.
•
DDR RAM DIMM modules supported. The subsystems support DDR RAM DIMM modules
with the capacities ranging from 256MB to 1GB.
•
Installation consideration: When installing the DIMM module, it is necessary to handle the
controller module. The controller board is more susceptible to damage than the other
components and must therefore be handled with extreme care. All anti-static precautions
must be strictly adhered to.
•
Secure installation: When replacing the DIMM module, make sure that the new DIMM
module is firmly in place prior to installing the controller module. If the DIMM module is
not firmly in place, the subsystem will not run and the controller will need to be removed
and the DIMM module correctly installed.
•
Purchasing consideration: When purchasing a DDR RAM DIMM to install on the controller
board, contact your vendor for an updated list of certified modules.

NOTICE!
i
When replacing a DIMM, the whole subsystem needs to be powered down. Therefore, when
replacing a DIMM, you should carefully select the time when the replacement will be made in
order to minimize the overall disruption to service.
6.4
Replacing a Faulty BBU
NOTICE!
i
The BBU is hot-swappable and can be replaced while the subsystem is running. However, a
new module will only be recognized after a subsystem reset. Carefully select the time when
the reset will be made in order to minimize the overall disruption to service.
To replace a faulty BBU, please follow these steps:
1.
Remove the faulty BBU module from the chassis. The BBU module is secured to the chassis with two (2) spring screws. These screws must be loosened. To loosen, turn the
screws counterclockwise.

Replacing a Failed PSU Module
6.5.1
Notes on PSU Module Maintenance
•
Two redundant PSU modules: The subsystem comes with two 350W, fully redundant, hotswappable PSU modules. These modules are accessed from the rear of the subsystem.
•
Immediate replacement: When a PSU fails, it should ideally be replaced immediately. Do
not remove the PSU module unless a replacement is readily available. Removing a PSU
without a replacement will cause severe disruptions to the internal airflow and the subsystem will overheat, possibly causing irreparable damage to some of the subsystem
components.
•
PSU bracket: Each PSU module is permanently mounted in a two-level steel bracket, creating a single unit. The PSU is located in the upper level and a removable cooling fan
module is mounted in the lower level.
CAUTION!
Although the subsystems can operate using single PSU module, it is not advisable to run the
RAID subsystems with a single PSU module for an extended period of time.
6.5.2
Replacing the PSU Module
To replace a PSU, please follow these steps:
1.
Turn off the PSU and remove the power cord: Turn of the power switches located on the
right side of each power supply module.

Once the power switches have been turned off, remove the power cables that connect
the subsystem to the main power. The power connector is found on the left side of each
power supply module.
3.
Remove the retention screw: After the power cable has been removed from the power
connector, remove the retention screw at the upper right side of the PSU rear-end panel.
The screw is located below the extraction lever, beside the LED indicator, and can be hidden from sight.
Fig. 6.4
4.
PSU Parts Identification
Pull the extraction handle downward: Push the extraction lever at the back of the PSU
module downwards. This will dislodge the PSU module from the subsystem. Once dislodged, gently pull the PSU module out of the subsystem.
CAUTION!
•
When a PSU is pulled out of the chassis, the fan module beneath the PSU is removed
from the chassis at the same time.
•
Do not remove the PSU module unless a replacement is readily available. Removing a PSU
without a replacement will cause severe disruptions to the internal airflow and the subsystem will overheat, possibly causing irreparable damage to some of the subsystem
components.
•
It is recommended that the replacement procedure is completed in less than five (5) minutes to prevent the subsystem from overheating.
5.
Remove the cooling module: To do this, push the clips on either side of the module rear
panel together. Then gently pull the cooling module out of the lower level of the PSU
bracket. (See Figure 6.5)

Reinstall the cooling module into the new PSU module: To do this, align the cooling module with the lower level of the PSU bracket and gently slide the cooling module in.
7.
Insert the new PSU module into the subsystem: Once the previously removed cooling
module has been installed, insert the new PSU module into the subsystem. Make sure the
extraction lever is in its downright position so that the saddle notches on the lower edges
of the handle can lock on to the edge metal brackets along the chassis inner walls. Push
the PSU into the slot and pull the handle upwards to secure the module.
8.
Reinsert the retention screw: If the PSU module is properly installed, the back end of the
module should be aligned with the enclosure’s rear panel. To firmly secure the PSUs into
place, reinsert the retention screw.
9.
Reconnect the power cord and turn the power on: Plug the power cord into the socket on
the PSU module and turn the PSU module power switch on.
6.6
6.6.1
Replacing a Failed Cooling Fan Module
Notes on Cooling Fan Module Maintenance
•
Redundant cooling fan modules: The subsystems are equipped with two redundant, hotswappable, single-blower cooling fan modules located in the lower PSU module slot.
These cooling fan modules control the internal operational temperature of the subsystem
and therefore their working integrity should be maintained at all times.
•
Detecting a failed cooling fan module: If a cooling fan module fails, you can be notified of
the failure by the LED located at the back of the module, an audible alarm, the terminal
event prompts, the Bosch RAIDWatch Panel View, or through the various methods by the
Configuration Client utility.
•
Replacing a cooling fan module: Once you are notified that a cooling fan module has
failed, it should be replaced as soon as possible. A failed cooling fan module should only
be removed from the subsystem when you have an immediately available replacement
module that can be installed as soon as the failed cooling fan module has been removed.
CAUTION!
•
The latches at the back of the cooling fan module secure the cooling fan module into the
enclosure. If these latches are broken, the warranty on the cooling fan module will be
void.
•
Although the cooling fan modules are fully redundant, it is not advisable to run the subsystems with any of the cooling fan modules missing. Whenever a cooling fan module
fails, the system is at risk of sustaining irreparable damage.
•

6.7.1
Drive Tray Maintenance
Notes on Hard Drive Maintenance
•
Hot-swappable drive trays: The drive trays are all hot-swappable. If a hard drive fails, it
can be replaced while the subsystem is still running.
•
Forearm handles: If the hard drive is behind either the left or right forearm handle, make
sure that the locking mechanism on the side of the handle is first released prior to opening the handle itself. (See Figure 6.7) The locking mechanism must also be released in
order to close the handle. Therefore, after the new drive has been installed, it will be necessary to release the locking mechanism on the handle prior to closing it.
Fig. 6.7
•
Forearm Handle Locking Mechanism
Front flap mechanism: Do not leave a drive tray’s front flap open. The front flap and its
key-lock secure a drive tray to chassis slot. A disk drive operating with the half-open front
bezel may result in signal glitches and Data Compare Errors might ensue.
•
Remove drives slowly: Although the drive trays are designed to be hot-swappable, when
removing a drive tray from the subsystem, withdraw it from the chassis slowly. Removing
the drive tray too quickly may cause a drive I/O timeout.
•
Replacement on hand: If a hard drive has failed, make sure you have a replacement hard
drive readily available before removing the failed drive from the subsystem. Do not leave

the drive tray slot open for an extended period of time. If the drive tray slot is left unoccupied for an extended period of time, the airflow will be disrupted and subsystem components will overheat and may be permanently damaged.
6.7.2
Replacing a Failed Hard Drive
To replace a hard drive, please follow these steps:
CAUTION!
•
Handle hard drives with extreme care. Hard drives are very delicate. Dropping a drive
onto a hard surface (even from a short distance) and hitting or touching the circuits on
the drives with your tools may all cause damage to drives.
•
•
Observe all ESD prevention methods when handling hard drives.
Only use screws supplied with the drive canisters. Longer screws may damage the drive.
CAUTION!
The hard drives and drive trays should only be installed into the subsystem once the subsystem has been mounted into a rack cabinet. If the hard drives are installed first, the subsystem will be too heavy to place into position and the possible impact during installation may
damage your drives.
Hard drives for the subsystem can be purchased separately. When purchasing the hard drives,
the following factors should be considered:
•
Capacity (MB/GB): Use drives with the same capacity. RAID arrays use a “least-commondenominator” approach. The maximum capacity of each drive used in the array is the
maximum capacity of the smallest drive. Use drives of the same capacity.
•
Profile: The drive trays and bays of the system are designed for 3.5-inch wide x 1-inch
high hard drives. It is highly recommended that you do not try to use drives of any other
size.
•
Drive type: The subsystem can use either SATA-II or SATA-I hard drives.
1.
Identify the drive tray that contains the hard drive that needs to be replaced.
CAUTION!
Replacing the wrong drive in an array can fatally fail a RAID configuration. You should identify
a failed drive from the Bosch RAIDWatch GUI screen, by checking the drive slot ID in the terminal screen, by checking the LEDs on the drive tray panel, and/or use the identify/flash drive
function in firmware.
2.
Open the front flap: Once the drive tray has been identified, push the release button at
the drive bezel. (See Figure 6.8) The front bezel will automatically be lifted and the drive
tray should be easily dislodged from the chassis.

side) to remove the hard drive from the drive tray.
6.
7.
Install the new hard drive:
Place the SATA hard drive into the drive tray (as shown in Figure 6.10) making sure that
the hard drive is oriented in such a way that the drive’s SATA connector is facing the back
of the drive tray.
Fig. 6.10
8.
Installing a SATA Hard Drive
Adjust the drive’s location until the mounting holes in the drive canister are aligned with
those on the hard drive. Secure the drive with four supplied 6/32 flathead screws. (See
Figure 6.10)
CAUTION!
Only use screws supplied with the drive canisters. Longer screws may damage the drive.
9.
If the failed drive is a member of a RAID 1, 3, or 5 array, once it is replaced the subsystem
should immediately start to rebuild the array. The drive activity LEDs should start to flash.
