1.1
Overview Features
The Acer | HDS Adaptable Modular Storage AMS200 subsystem (hereafter referred to as the
AMS200) is available in two models: the floor model and the rack-mount model.
There are two types of the AMS200 floor model. The first type is a combination of the
DF700-RKS (hereafter referred to as the RKS) and the floor standing kit DF-F700-H1J
(hereafter referred to as the Floor [RKS+H1J] Model). The second type is a combination of
the RKS, the DF700-RKAJ (hereafter referred to as RKAJ), and the floor standing kit DF-F700H2J (hereafter referred to as the Floor [RKS+RKAJ+H2J] Model).
The AMS200 rack-mount model is a subsystem that combines the RKS, RKAJ/RKAJAT, and the
DF-700-RKNAS2G (hereafter referred to as RKNAS). For information regarding model types,
see sections 1.2 and 1.3.
The following AMS200 subsystem features are discussed in this section:
1.1.1
„
High Data Availability
„
Connectivity
„
Scalability
„
Performance Reporting and Monitoring
„
Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability
„
Hitachi Freedom Storage™ and Hitachi Freedom Data Networks™
High Data Availability
The AMS200 is designed for high performance and protection of user data. See section 1.2
for additional information on the reliability and availability features of the Acer | HDS
AMS200 subsystem.
1.1.2
Connectivity
The Acer | HDS AMS200 subsystem provides connectivity to most open systems through a
standard Fibre Channel interface or Network interfaces. The following describes the features
of Fibre Channel and Ethernet.
„
High-Speed Data Transfer
Fibre Channel: When using the Fibre Channel for the host interface, the AMS200 subsystem
can transfer data between the host computer and the subsystem at a maximum speed of 200
MB/sec. (400 M bytes/s when the optional interface is connected). Throughput can be
accessed by connecting multiple devices through the Fibre Channel Switch even when
accessing multiple hosts.
2
Chapter 1
Overview of the AMS200 Subsystem
Ethernet: With the 1 G bps Ethernet connection, the subsystem can transfer data between
host computer and the subsystem at a maximum speed of 100 M bytes/s per port via a
network. Enough throughput can be obtained even when having multiple access to the
multiple devices connected to the same network loop.
„
Cable
Fibre Channel: With Fibre Channel, the subsystem can be located up to 300 meters from the
host.
Ethernet: With Ethernet, the subsystem can be located up to 100 meters from the host. The
subsystem can be installed in the location far from the host.
„
The Number of Connectable Devices
Fibre Channel: The AMS200 subsystem enables you to construct a system which can connect
up to 126 fibre channel devices by using the fibre channel interface and connecting the FCAL and the FC-SW.
„
Security Function
Fibre Channel and Ethernet: When the system is configured to connect multiple hosts, a
function is provided which rejects a boot by any host except a specified host. This function
can prevent access from an illegal host.
1.1.3
Scalability
The architecture of the AMS200 enables the user to scale the subsystem to meet a wide
range of capacity and performance requirements:
1.1.4
„
You can construct a variety of systems; for example, a system with 15 disk drives can be
configured using a single RKS, or a more complex system can be set up using the
maximum of 105 disk drives, expanded by connecting up to 6 RKAJs/RKAJATs to the RKS.
„
Up to 15 spare disks can be set up in any location. Use the system effectively by
configuring each spare disk in a disk drive slot left unused due to system construction.
„
From the host computer, the subsystem can be used as a single large-scale disk drive or
as 512 logical disks (LUs) maximum.
Performance Reporting and Monitoring
The Storage Navigator-Modular program provides the capability to either monitor the disk
array in real-time or to collect historical data regarding the performance of the disk array.
Acer | HDS AMS200 User and Reference Guide
3
1.1.5
Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability
The AMS200 subsystem is not expected to fail in any way that would interrupt user access to
data. The AMS200 can sustain single component failures and still continue to provide full
access to all stored user data.
Note: While access to user data will not normally be compromised, the failure of any single
key component may degrade performance.
The reliability, availability, and serviceability features of the AMS200 subsystem include:
„
High-Availability capability. The AMS200 subsystem provides high-availability capability
for all critical components. The AMS200 uses component and function redundancy to
provide high availability for many subsystem components.
The Controller of the AMS200 subsystem increases data reliability by adding original 8byte data assurance codes to data from a host computer by automatically generating
them, writing them in the disk drive together with the data, and checking them when
reading the data. On the data bus in the controller, the automatic generation of the
data assurance codes and the check are executed to enhance data reliability in data
distribution/concentration control, particular to that disk array.
This function monitors potential disk failure. Before failure occurs, the data copy
operation can be automatically performed in the background. The dynamic sparing
feature enables the subsystem to replace the spare disk due to redundancy (excluding
RAID0 configuration) and provides high reliability.
4
„
Redundant power supply systems. Each AMS200 unit has a set of two power supplies.
Each power supply can provide power for the entire subsystem in the unlikely event of
power supply failure. The power supplies of each set can be connected across power
boundaries so that each set can continue to provide power if a power outage occurs.
Each unit of the AMS200 can sustain the loss of a single power supply and still continue
operation.
„
High capacity cache. The AMS200 subsystem supports 2 GBs high capacity cache per
controller. Writing completion can be reported to the host system when data is written
to cache.

2.2.3.5
Nickel-Hydride Rechargeable Battery Instructions
These instructions explain what you must observe when you use a nickel-hydride
rechargeable battery (hereafter it is referred to as the battery). If you use the battery
incorrectly, it can overheat ignite, burst or explode, damaging and deteriorating its
performance/life. Read and follow the instructions below:
Danger
1. Do not disassemble the case; do not modify it or peel off the label. There are high
voltage parts inside: if you attempt any of these actions, this can result in electrical
shock or burning.
2. Do not disassemble the battery; this can cause short circuits inside or outside of the
battery. If the components are exposed to the air, the battery can overheat, burst or
ignite. Disassembling the battery can expose you to alkaline solution, which can be
dangerous.
3. Do not cut the output cable. Do not modify the connector. If you attempt any of these
actions, an electrical shock or burn can result. A short-circuit may cause abnormal
chemical reactions inside the battery which leads to overheating, bursting or ignition.
4. Follow the instructions when you recharge the battery pack. If you recharge it in a way
different from specified here, it may cause the following problems: The battery may
become charged excessively; excessive current may be produced; or the battery cannot
be recharged. As a result, the battery may leak, become overheated, burst, or ignite.
5. Do not use excessive force when you connect the battery pack to the charger or other
devices. If you cannot connect it easily, check that the positive and negative positions
are correct for the connector. If you connect the battery in reverse, it will be charged
incorrectly and abnormal chemical reactions may occur inside. As a result, the battery
may become overheated, burst or ignite.
6. Do not connect the battery to a power receptacle. If you apply an excessive amount of
voltage to the battery, it may produce excessive current making the battery overheat,
burst or ignite.
7. Do not use or leave the battery where the temperature can become high, such as, near a
fire or a heating element. High temperatures can damage the battery's separator, which
may cause short circuit, making it overheat, burst or ignite.
8. Do not incinerate or heat the battery pack. If you do so, the insulator may melt, the
safety fuse/mechanism may be damaged, or the electrolyte may gush out. As a result,
the battery can burst, explode or ignite.
9. Do not connect the negative terminal to the positive with metal wire. Do not carry or
store the battery with other metal parts. This can cause a short circuit or produce an
excessive current which can cause the battery to leak, overheat, burst or ignite.
10. Do not let the battery become wet by soaking it in the water or seawater. If the battery
becomes wet, a short circuit can occur and an excessive amount of current can be
produced, causing abnormal chemical reactions inside. As a result, the battery may
become overheated, burst or ignite.
16
Chapter 2 Planning for Installation and Operation
11. Do not nail or hammer the battery. The battery may be broken or dented and a short
circuit may occur inside. As a result, the battery may become overheated, burst or
ignite.
12. Do not solder directly to the battery. If you do so, heat will melt the insulator and
damage the safety fuse/mechanism. As a result, the battery may leak or may become
overheated, burst or ignite.
Warning
1. If you find anything strange or unusual with the battery when you use/carry/store it,
remove the battery from the device and stop using it. For example, strange smells,
strange colors, or deformation are a sign you must stop using the battery.
2. If it takes longer than the specified time to complete recharging, stop recharging the
battery; otherwise, the battery may become overheated, burst or ignite.
If the battery leaks and gets into your eyes, immediately flush your eyes with clean water
(tap water) and do not rub your eye. Visit the doctor immediately. If you do not seek any
treatment for your eyes, problems may occur later. Because the battery uses highly
concentrated alkaline as electrolyte, it can burn; you may lose your sight if it makes contact
with your eyes. If the battery's liquid contacts your skin or eyes, you must flush them with
plenty of clean water and visit a doctor at once.

„
Do NOT immediately touch the person struck by electricity. You could be the second
victim.
„
To shut off the electric flow to a victim, disconnect the power feed cable of the
equipment. In spite of this action, electricity may not be shut off. Separate the victim
from the current source by using a non-conductive material such as dry wooden bar.
„
Call an ambulance.
„
When the victim has lost consciousness, practice artificial respiration on the victim. To
prepare for such a case, learn how to practice artificial respiration.
„
When the victim’s heart has stopped, give a heart massage. This treatment should only
be conducted by a person who has been trained and qualified.
Fire
„
To shut off the electric flow to the equipment, pull out the power feed cable. This will
terminate the power supply.

3.1
AMS200 Rack-Mount Model
The following steps describe power on/off procedures for the AMS200 rack-mount model.
Note: For information about the global rack-mount model, refer to the Acer | HDS AMS200
and WMS100 Global Global 19-Inch Rack Reference Guide.
3.1.1
Subsystem Power On
Note: The EALM lamp (red) of the controller (on the rear side of the subsystem) may come
on between subsystem power-on and Ready status. However, it is not a problem if the EALM
lamp (red) goes out during this period of time.
To power on the subsystem:
1. Verify that the main switch is turned off.
2. Verify that the AC power unit switch of each power unit is turned off.
3. Verify that the circuit breaker (CB1) is turned off.
4. When the RKNAS is mounted on the rack, verify that the AC Power Unit Switch of the
power unit on the RKNAS is turned off.
5. Turn on the circuit breaker (CB1) of the PDB.
6. Turn on the AC Power Unit Switch of the power unit on RKNAS.
7. Turn on the AC power unit switch of the power unit on RKAJ/RKAJAT.
Note: When two or more disk drives are not installed on the additional disk drive unit side,
shut off the power to the RKAJ/RKAJAT power unit.
8. Turn on the AC power unit switch of the power unit on RKS.
9. Turn on the main switch.
10. Make sure that the READY LED (green) on the RKS lights within five minutes. When the
RKNAS is connected to the AMS200, make sure that the READY LED (green) on the RKNAS
lights another three minutes later.If the READY LED (green) on the RKS blinks at a high
pace, it blinks for up to 15 minutes because the download of the ENC/SENC firmware is
executed. Even when the READY LED (green) blinks, the subsystem is operational. If the
ALARM LED (red) or WARNING LED (orange) lights, refer to section 8.1.
Note 1: The EALM lamp (red) of the control unit (on the rear side of the subsystem) may
come on between the powering on of the subsystem and entry into the Ready status of the
RKS.
However, it is not a problem if the EALM lamp (red) goes out until the subsystem enters the
Ready status.
Note 2: A NAS system cannot be accessed from a host computer even though the READY LED
of NAS unit illuminates. A NAS system accepts access from a host computer only when of
"ACTIVE" NAS OS Condition.
40
Chapter 3 Powering On/Off Procedure
3.1.2
Subsystem Power Off
To power off the subsystem:
1. Turn off the main switch.
2. Verify that the POWER LED (green) on the panel of the RKS is off.
3. Turn off the AC power unit switch of the power unit.
4. When the RKNAS is mounted on the rack, turn off the AC Power Unit Switch of the power
unit on RKNAS.
5. Turn off the circuit breaker (CB1) of the PDB.
Note: When storing the subsystem without turning on the power for long periods,
request that the Customer Engineer turn off the battery of the subsystem. For details on
how to store the subsystem, refer to Chapter 9.

Chapter 3 Powering On/Off Procedure
3.2
AMS200 Floor Model
The following steps describe power on/off procedures for the AMS200 floor model.
3.2.1
Subsystem Power On
Note: The EALM lamp (red) of the controller (on the rear side of the subsystem) may come
on between subsystem power-on and Ready status. However, it is not a problem if the EALM
lamp (red) goes out during this period of time.
To power on the subsystem:
1. Verify that the main switch is turned off.
2. Verify that the AC power unit switch of the power unit is turned off.
3. Turn on the AC Power Unit Switch of the power unit on RKAJ/RKAJAT.
Note: When two or more disk drives are not installed on the additional disk drive unit side,
shut off the power to the power unit (RKAJ).
4. Turn on the AC Power Unit Switch of the power unit on RKS.
5. Turn on the main switch.
6. Verify that the READY LED (green) lights within five minutes. If the READY LED (green)
blinks rapidly, the ENC firmware is downloaded. Even when the READY LED (green) blinks,
the subsystem is operational. If the ALARM LED (red) or WARNING LED (orange) lights,
refer to section 8.1.
Note: The EALM lamp (red) of the control unit (on the rear side of the subsystem) may come
on between subsystem power-up and entry into the Ready status. However, it is not a
problem if the EALM lamp (red) goes out until the subsystem enters the Ready status.

3.2.2
Subsystem Power Off
To power off the subsystem:
1. Turn off the main switch.
2. Verify that the POWER LED (green) on the panel is off.
3. Turn off the AC power unit switch of the power unit.
Note: When storing the subsystem without turning on the power for long periods, request
that the Customer Engineer turn off the battery of the subsystem. For details on how to
store the subsystem, refer to Chapter 9.

4.2
Redundant Power Supplies
Each AMS200 unit is powered by its own set of redundant power supplies, and each power
supply is able to provide power for the entire RKS unit, should it become necessary. Because
of this redundancy, the AMS200 subsystem can sustain the loss of a power supply and still
continue operation. To make use of this capability, the two power supplies of each AMS200
unit should be connected either to dual power sources or to different power panels, so if
there is a power failure on one of the sources, the AMS200 subsystem can continue full
operations using power from the alternate source.
RKNAS has no redundancy of power supplies.
58
Chapter 4 Subsystem Architecture and Components
4.3
Fibre Channel Interface
The AMS200 subsystem supports open system operations. The AMS200 subsystem supports up
to 2 fibre-channel ports. Each AMS200 Fibre Channel interface is capable of operating at
data transfer speeds of up to 200 MB/sec. The AMS200 extends up to 4 Fibre Channel ports
by adding optional an FC interface board. The AMS200 supports shortwave multimode optical
cables. With these shortwave fibre channel cables, the AMS200 subsystem can be located up
to 300 meters from the open-system host.
4.3.1
Mini-HUB
When the FC interface board is not added to the control unit, the host interface of the
AMS200 has a Mini-HUB in the control unit, and enhances one port to two host connectors.
However, the link status between the host and AMS200 is recognized as one port.

New AMS200 Features and Capabilities
The Hitachi AMS200 subsystem offers the following new or improved features and
capabilities, which distinguish the AMS200 subsystem from the 9200 subsystem:
„
Up to 15 spare disks installable (floor RKS+H1JModel: up to 1).
„
512 logical unit numbers maximum.
„
Multiple parity groups allocatable for one RAID group.
„
25 RAID groups maximum.
„
The drive interface supports 2 Gbps Fibre Channel.
„
A maximum of 4 Gbytes high capacity cache is supported in the dual configuration. It
improves the cache percent hit rate.
„
The file sharing function supported by connecting to the NAS unit
„
1 Gbps iSCSI supported by adding iSCSI interface
Acer | HDS AMS200 User and Reference Guide
95
5.2
Raid Implementations
The AMS200 subsystem supports RAID0, RAID1, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID1+0. RKAJAT does not
support RAID0.
„
RAID0 group stripes data across all disk drives in the group to attain higher throughput.
There is no sparing disk drive function with this configuration.
Notes on Using RAID0:
96
–
When a failure occurs in a disk drive, data cannot be restored internally within the
disk array because RAID0 has no redundancy of data; therefore, although the host
receives an error message, the data is left in its current state.
–
Unlike with an independent disk drive, error block management (assignment of
alternative block for the independent disk drive with the Reassign Blocks command)
is not done. Therefore, when a RAID0 disk drive becomes inaccessible due to a
failure, all the LUs in the RAID0 configuration including the failed disk drive become
inaccessible. Restoration of user data with backup data is essential after replacing
the failed disk drive.
–
Do not allow RAID0 to coexist with the other RAID group; do not form a group with
two or more RAID0 systems. An example = (4D + 1P) × 2 + 2D.
–
Each time a failure occurs in a RAID0 disk drive, data that cannot be written into the
disk drive (pinned data) is accumulated in the cache.
–
When the amount of accumulated data exceeds a certain value, a write I/O
instructed to the other RAID group cannot be accepted and the system goes down.
(In this case, restoration of user data and resynchronization of a file system using
the backup data are required for the entire subsystem; therefore, the time
necessary for recovery is lengthy.)
–
Do not adopt the RAID0 configuration to its fullest extent. Consider the above notes
when building the configuration.
„
RAID1+0 groups provide data redundancy like RAID1 by copying all the contents of two
disk drives to another pair. Different from RAID1, data striping is performed for a
maximum of 16 sets of two disk drives.
„
RAID1 array groups consist of at least two disk drives in a mirrored configuration. Data is
mirrored across the groups of two adjacent drives. The stripe consists of two data
chunks.
„
RAID5 applies 2 to 15 data disks and has a parity disk which performs the data stripping.
„
RAID 6 applies 2 to 28 data disks, and has two parity disks performing the data stripping.
Configuration with two parity disks provides redundancy that can sustain two point
failures.

5.3
Cache Management
Cache management features include the following:
„
Data is stored in cache when reading and writing; it is dynamically managed, depending
on the workload read and write I/O characteristics. A high percent cache hit rate is
expected, due to transaction processing (data is updated after it is referenced). System
throughput is increased by the reduced data writing time.
„
Writing completion is reported to the host at the same time the data is written onto the
cache; the write operation onto the disk will be asynchronously performed later. The
host can perform the next process without waiting for the write operation onto disk.
„
The data written onto the cache is saved in the event of an electric power failure due to
the nonvolatile cache. The data is assured for 24 hours on the full charge of a standard
configuration.
„
One specified logical unit on each controller can be resident in cache. High throughput
can be realized for the specified logical unit since a 100% cache percent hit rate is
expected when reading and writing from the host.
Cache specifications are shown in the following tables:

Open Systems Features and Functions
The AMS200 subsystem offers many features and functions specifically for the open-systems
environment. The AMS200 subsystem also supports important open-system functions, such as
fibre-channel arbitrated-loop (FC-AL) and fabric topologies, command tag queuing, multi
initiator I/O, and most industry-standard software and middleware products which provide
host fail-over, I/O path fail-over, and logical volume management functions.
5.5.1
Open Systems Middleware
Open-system middleware products provide host fail-over capability, I/O path fail-over
support, and logical volume management in the open-systems environment. Middleware is
not usually supplied as part of the basic operating system.
5.5.2
Logical Unit Mapping
Each LUN can be assigned to multiple fibre-channel ports or iSCSI ports to provide I/O path
fail-over with middleware support.

5.6
Data Management Features and Functions
These features include:
5.6.1
„
Cache Residency Manager Function
„
LUN Manager Function
„
Data Retention Utility Function
„
LUN Expansion Function
„
Password Protection Function
Cache Residency Manager Function
The Cache Residency Manager function ensures that all data in an LU is stored in cache
memory. All read/write commands to the LU can be executed by cache hit 100% without
accessing the drive. The system throughput is improved when this function is applied to an
LU that contains data accessed frequently because no latency period is needed to access the
disk drive.
5.6.2
LUN Manager Function
The LUN Manager has four main functions: Fibre security control and host group (for Fibre
Channel interface), or iSCSI security control and target (for iSCSI interface).
„
Fibre Channel Interface
The Fibre security control function controls the access from specific hosts or specific
commands.
This function enables the subsystem to respond to each connected host (even within the
same port) by grouping connected hosts within a port and setting the logical unit
mapping and the Host Connection mode for each host group.
„
iSCSI Interface
The iSCSI security function controls access from specified hosts or specific commands.
The target group function enables the subsystem to respond to each connected host
(even within the same port) by grouping the connected hosts within a port and setting
the locial unit mapping and Host Connection mode for each group. Up to 128 targets can
be set for one port. Authentication can be performed for each target by using the CHAP
authentication concurrently.
5.6.3
Data Retention Utility Function
The Data Retention Utility feature prevents the logical unit (volume) from being accessed
illegally by the host.
102
Chapter 5 Functional and Operational Characteristics
5.6.4
LUN Expansion Function
The LUN Expansion function expands the size of a logical unit (volume) accessed by a host
computer by combining multiple logical units (volumes) internally.
5.6.5
Password Protection Function
The Password Protection function restricts the number of Storage Navigator Modular users
who are allowed to access a disk array subsystem; it also prevents simultaneous access from
multiple users.
5.7
Copy Solution Features and Functions
The AMS200 subsystem provides features and functions which allow you to maintain remote
and subsystem internal copies of all user data on the AMS200 storage subsystem for data
backup or duplication. These features include:
5.7.1
„
ShadowImage In-System Replication Function
„
Copy-On-Write Snapshot Function
„
NAS Backup Restore Modular Function
„
NAS SyncImage Modular Function
ShadowImage In-System Replication Function
The Hitachi Data Systems ShadowImage In-System Replication function enables you to
maintain subsystem-internal copies of all user data on the AMS200 storage subsystem for
purposes such as data backup or duplication. The duplicated volumes are created within the
same AMS200 subsystem as the primary volume.
ShadowImage In-System Replication operations are non-disruptive and allow the primary
(main) volume of each volume pair to remain online to all hosts for both read and write I/O
operations. Once established, ShadowImage In-System Replication operations continue
unattended to provide asynchronous internal data backup. Usability is further enhanced
through a resynchronization capability that reduces data duplication requirements and
backup time, thereby increasing user productivity.
5.7.2
Copy-On-Write Snapshot Function
The Hitachi Copy-On-Write Snapshot feature enables you to maintain a logical copy of logical
units (volumes) at a point in time between the disk array subsystems.
Acer | HDS AMS200 User and Reference Guide

Operation management (NAS OS, disk array subsystem) on the disk array side from the NAS
OS (NAS File Sharing Modular, NAS Data Control Modular) is performed by maintenance
software on the PC. Operation management on the host side from the NAS OS (file system,
fail-over function) is performed by NAS Manager Modular.
The system administrator gives instructions to the NAS Manager Modular using the WEB
browser from the NAS management console. The NAS Manager Modular, which receives the
instruction, performs the instructions coordinating with NAS OS or various software.

Chapter 6 Configuring the AMS200 Subsystem
6.2
Configuring LAN Interfaces of the AMS200 Subsystem
The negotiation mode (10M/100M/half-duplex/full-duplex) of LAN port for user management
(used for Hi-Command, Storage Navigator Modular, etc.)and for maintenance of the control
Unit supports auto negotiation mode only. Therefore, connect the control Unit to the
network device which supports auto negotiation mode and set the auto negotiation mode for
the network card and the network switch connected to the control Unit.
Note: If the fixed transfer rate is set for the destination device of the control Unit, the
throughput or response performance of network communication may decrease and the
control Unit may not communicate the destination device across a network.
The communication mode of the control Unit becomes half-duplex under the Ethernet
standard, if the destination device of the control Unit is set to fixed transfer rate. If the
communication mode of the destination device of the control Unit is set to a fixed transfer
rate, the communication mode does not match between the control Unit and its destination
device; the network communication becomes unstable.
Each controller is shipped with a default IP address of 192.168.0.16 (Controller 0) and
192.168.0.17(Controller1), and a netmask of 255.255.255.0. The IP address can be set using
the Storage Navigator-Modular program.
If the Storage Navigator-Modular program is used to configure the IP addresses, also refer to
the procedure in section 7.10.
If you wish to use Storage Navigator Modular to configure the IP addresses, please refer to
the Acer | HDS Adaptable Modular Storage and Workgroup Modular Storage Storage
Navigator Modular Graphical User Interface (GUI) User’s Guide to use a GUI interface. See
the Acer | HDS Adaptable Modular Storage and Workgroup Modular Storage Storage
Navigator Modular Command Line Interface (CLI) to use the CLI version.

Refer to the section titled, Installing Storage Navigator-Modular for instructions on how
to install the program.
3. Register the disk array for control by Storage Navigator-Modular.
4. Set the system parameters using the appropriate installation guide for the desired host
platform(s).
5. Reboot the disk array to complete the configuration.
Note: If the setting operation is performed for the array unit connected to the NAS unit, the
cluster between the NAS Units stops. When the setting operation for the array subsystem is
unavoidably performed, execute it after stopping the cluster between the NAS Units and
stopping the NAS OS of both NAS Units. Start the cluster between the NAS Units again after
completing the setting operation for the array subsystem.

„
Microprogram
„
System parameters
„
Configuration information
„
SNMP information
„
Storage for parameters
Microprogram
A microprogram controls basic hardware operations which accompany the execution of given
instructions performed by a CPU. The version of the microprogram is controlled by the
following numerical format: xxxxx/xx.
The microprogram 07xxx/xx (x is optional), is available. However, /x may not be included in
the microprogram version number or another control system may control the microprograms.
NAS model has NAS OS and BIOS. NAS OS controls file service and NAS management function.
The version is managed by the following numerical format: xx-xx-xx (x is optional).
BIOS controls RKNAS initialization and NAS unit full memory dump (hereinafter referred to as
NAS dump) collection function. The version is managed by the following numerical format:
xxxxxxxx (x is optional).
7.1.2
System Parameters
System parameters are necessary to start the subsystem (from turning on the main switch of
RKS to generation of the RDY LED (green) of RKS. System parameters are stored in flash
memory. They can be backed up to a disk drive. When the system parameter changes, make
a backup copy on the disk drive.
7.1.3
Configuration Information
The configuration information is a record of customer data on the subsystem, such as the
RAID configuration and LU capacity. The configuration information exists in the disk drive
when the main switch is turned off; it is transmitted onto the main memory of the controller
when the main switch is turned on. When configuration information is changed, the
information on the disk drive is updated simultaneously.
7.1.4
SNMP Information
The SNMP parameter enables the SNMP function to operate effectively. When SNMP
information activates the SNMP function, the template contained in the SNMP information
(in the SNMP directory on the provided CD-R) is edited and registered in the subsystem.
Acer | HDS AMS200 User and Reference Guide
125
7.1.5
Storage for Parameters
The storage areas where the parameters on the controller are stored are described in the
following table:

(and backup FD)
The parameters are stored in flash memory. No
provision of storage against a power shut off is
required for the parameters because flash memory can
retain information when power is shut off.

Disk Drive (System Area)
ƒ
Fixed part program: N/A.
ƒ
Flash program: Automatically backed up to the
system area.
ƒ
System parameters: Automatically backed up to the
disk drive.
Generally, information in a RAM is erased when the
main switch is turned off. Therefore, the subsystem
also stores the parameters used on the RAM on the
disk drive. (An area is reserved in the disk drive to
store them. This area is called the system area.)
The system area is provided on the disk drives #0 to #4
in the RKS frame. Therefore, the system area has
redundancy for disk drives #0 to #4 in the RKS frame.

formatting, the logical unit will be unformatted and data can be lost. Therefore, host
installation operation should be performed from the first step for the logical unit.
Note 2: When logical units are formatted, the user data will be initialized and completely
deleted.
Note 3: The RAID group is allocated to the NAS system LU when the NAS is connected; the
user LU cannot be deleted without releasing the allocation.
Note 4: Formatting will impact host access performance, especially on the logical unit being
formatted and on the logical unit in the same RAID group as the logical unit being formatted.
Perform formatting functions during off-hours with less host access.
When formatting the logical unit in the same RAID group as NAS system LU, do not boot or
reboot the NAS OS. This could result in boot failure or increase the boot time of NAS OS.
„
Format
This mode enables the subsystem to start its operation earlier by formatting the
specified LU in the background to make it usable by a host. Up to 512 LUs can be
specified for formatting. This number can also be increased; however, the number of
LUs that can be simultaneously formatted in the background is six per CTL. When
executing formatting, the Storage Navigator-Modular program can perform operations
(such as a RAID group creation) while the formatting is being executed.
When the Storage Navigator-Modular program is terminated while formatting is executed,
the formatting function is continued. When the Storage Navigator-Modular program is
terminated while formatting is executed, the formatting progress is displayed by
percentage in the logical unit status column when the Storage Navigator-Modular
program is activated again.
When the host I/O is executed for the LU in formatting, Format completion may be
delayed; from the 99 % progress status, it may take 400 seconds (maximum).

Note1: Formatting using the Format Priority Mode allows the subsystem to minimize the
effects from host access and complete the format promptly, for the online format during the
disk drive addition or during the recovery work from the two points disk drive failure.
Host access performance may be significantly affected because this mode restricts
commands from host.

Set the system parameters in the array unit with the information described in the file. If you
set the system parameters using a file that was output when a priced optional feature is in
an unlocked state, the setting may terminate abnormally. To set system parameters, use a
file that was output when all priced optional features are in a locked state.
For a dual system, the setting cannot be executed if one of the controllers is detached.
Confirm that the array unit is operating normally.
While the system parameters are being set, the array unit cannot execute commands from
the host. The functions of Storage Navigator-Modular can no longer work with the exception
of the Wizard for setting the system parameters and failure monitoring. After setting,
restart the array unit. Confirm that it is operating successfully, and then connect to the host
and the Storage Navigator-Modular management program.
Note: If the system parameter setting operation is performed for the array unit connected to
the NAS unit, the cluster between the NAS Units stops. When the system parameter setting
operation for the array subsystem is unavoidably performed, execute it after stopping the
cluster between the NAS Units and stopping the NAS OS of both NAS Units. Start the cluster
between the NAS Units again after completing the system parameter setting operation.
1. Edit the file for which you will set system parameters to set the array unit. This file has

If the DHCP server is not started up, or if the DHCP function has been wrongly set, the
acquisition of the IP Address will fail, and the IP Address of the subsystem will remain
0.0.0.0. (This is a state in which Disk Array management program 2 or the Web cannot be
used via a LAN.)
Note 3: In this case, you can acquire the IP Address by starting up the DHCP server or by
setting the DHCP function correctly, when necessary.

Determining Failure on the Network Side of an iSCSI System
One of the following or two or more items are considered to be the causes that the host
computer cannot communicate with the disk array subsystem. Check the validity of each
item, and take necessary actions if there is any problem.
268
„
The link status of LAN port in host computer is normal.
„
All the Network peripherals (Switch, router, and NIC etc.) are powered on.
if not, turn on the power.
„
All the LAN cables between host computer and disk array subsystem are connected to
the connector.
If the LAN cable is connected loosely, connect it tightly.
„
The port transfer rate of the HBA, Switch or NIC connected to the disk array subsystem is
1 Gbps.
The port transfer rate of the disk array subsystem is 1 Gbps rate, and the communication
mode is full-duplex.
„
The VLAN setting is correct.
„
The firewall setting is correct.
„
The setting for L3 Switch or router is correct.
„
The setting for the iSCSI driver of host computer is correct.
„
The IPsec of the host computer is disabled for the iSCSI port of the disk array subsystem.
The IPsec of the host computer needs to be disabled for the iSCSI port of the disk array
subsystem.
„
The setting of the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and MTU value for both the
disk array subsystem and the host computer meets the network.
The MTU value needs to be set as the same value for all the devices (host computer,
Switch, disk array subsystem, etc.) in the LAN network. The MTU value of DF700 is static
and it is 1,500.
„
The host computer recognizes the iSCSI driver.
„
Doesn't it login with the correct IP address or the correct iSCSI Name of the Target is
executed by the host computer.
„
The TCP Port number of the iSCSI port of the subsystem is set correctly in the host
computer.
„
The "Discovery "and "Login" are executed by the host computer.
„
The IP address of the iSNS server is set correctly in the host computer and disk array
subsystem when iSCSI System has iSNS server.
„
The iSNS server can newly register the information of the iSCSI device (IP address and
iSCSI Name, etc.) when iSCSI System has iSNS server.
„
The CHAP User of the Initiator is registered in the iSCSI port of the disk array subsystem
when the Initiator authentication of the CHAP authentication is applied to the iSCSI
System.
If not, resister the CHAP User of the Initiator newly.
Chapter 8 Troubleshooting
„
The Target name (example: [000:T000]) of the Target is registered in the CHAP User of
the Initiator at the disk array subsystem when the Initiator authentication of the CHAP
authentication is applied to the iSCSI System.
„
The User Name and its Secret of the Target are set correctly in the host computer when
the Initiator authentication of the CHAP authentication is applied to the iSCSI System.
„
The iSCSI Name of HBA on the assigned Initiator list of the Initiator at the disk array
subsystem is assigned to the Target of the disk array subsystem when Target security of
LUN Manager is enabled in the iSCSI port of the disk array subsystem.
If not, assign the iSCSI Name of the HBA to the Target.

Periodic Maintenance
If the subsystem is not energized for more than three months, the battery may overdischarge and unrecoverable damage may result. In this situation, the battery must be
energized more than 6 hours at least once every three months or, alternatively, the
subsystem can be stored with the switch of the battery turned off. However, even when the
switch is turned off, the battery discharges naturally. The battery should be charged once
every six months for longer than 6 hours because spontaneous discharge occurs.

Chapter 9 Periodic Maintenance
Appendix A
Glossary
Cache backup
Because a cache memory uses DRAM, information stored in it is lost
when the subsystem power is shut off. To provide against
unexpected power failure, the subsystem has an setup to maintain
data in the cache memory by batteries.
Cache backup is a state in which the data is protected by the
batteries.
CHAP
(Challenge
Handshake
Authentication
Protocol)
One of authentication methods. Security is high because
authenticated information exchanged on network is encrypted by
hash value.
CIFS
Common Internet File System
CIFS is the extension of SMB protocol used in the file sharing service
of the WIndows.
The specification is disclosed so that the CIFS can be used in the OS
other than Windows.
CSMA/CD
(Carrier Sense
Multiple Access
with Collision
Detection)
CSMA/CD is the LAN access method used in Ethernet. When a device
wants to transmit data, it monitors the transmission status of a
cable. If the cable is free, the device transmits data. If the cable is
not free, the device waits a random amount of time before retrying.
If more than two devices start a transmission at exactly the same
time, a collision occurs in a cable. They both back off and wait a
random amount of time before retrying. The CSMA/CD enables
multiple devices to communicate sharing one cable.
CTL
Controller
CUDG
Control Unit Diagnosis
Data LAN interface
LAN interface in NAS unit that takes access from the NFS/CIFS client.
User LAN interface provides Copper 4 ports for one NAS unit, and
supports 1Gbit/s.
Destage
Automatically writes data in cache memory, not yet written on the
disk drive, on the disk drive when the main switch is turned off.
DHCP
DHCP is an abbreviation for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol; it
is a client/server type protocol according to which a server
automatically assigns an IP address when each client has started.
ECC

FC-AL
Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop
FC-SW
Fibre Channel-Switch Topology
Fibre channel (FC)
A set of standards of interfaces that are connected through optical
fibre, etc. to achieve high-speed data transfer between devices.
Fibre Channel HBA
Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter
Fibre Channel HUB
An apparatus to connect and relay Fibre Channel cables, each
connected to a Fibre Channel device in order to form an arbitrated
loop of the Fibre Channel.
Flash memory
ROM that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed. A type of
EEPROM (Electrically Erasable and Programmable). It can retain
information without electricity and is widely used as an external
storage, etc.
Host computer
A computer which manages devices. For the disk array, it is a
computer which enables the disk array store data.
Hot replacement
Used to replace an installed part with the subsystem power on.
Usually, the major part is duplicated so that when one of the parts
fails, the subsystem function is maintained by another part.
I/F
Interface
IP address
IP address is an abbreviation for Internet Protocol Address; it is a
numeral string which shows an address of a computer connected to a
network.
iSCSI (Internet
Small Computer
System Interface)
It is a protocol which is used to send and receive SCSI commands on
IP network. Data can be transferred in a unit of block.
iSNS (Internet
Storage Name
Service)
iSNS is a name service for iSCSI. Targets on the network can be
detected without setting target information to the initiator by user
when using iSNS.

Function
(SNMP)
The SNMP agent support function reports failures to the
workstation which monitors the network via the SNMP of
the open platform.
R/W
Read/Write.
SATA(Seri
al-ATA)
S-ATA is an abbreviation for Serial Advanced Technology
Attachment, and it is one of the extended specifications
of IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) standard for
connecting a memory device such as HDDs.
Serial ATA is a successor specification to the conventional
ATA specification, changing from the parallel transmission
mode, adapted in the existing ATA specifications such as
Ultra ATA, to serial transmission mode. This enables S-ATA
to provide fast transfer rate using simple cables, and SATA is compatible with conventional parallel ATA
standards.
SNMP
SNMP is an abbreviation for Simple Network Management
Protocol, and it is one of the network protocols developed
to manage a network.
Spare
disk
A disk drive which is mounted separately from the disk
drives for usual write and read operation; when a failure
occurs in a disk drive, data stored in the failed drive is
copied to the spare disk drive so that the disk subsystem
can continue to be available equivalently to the original
subsystem.
System
LU
UPS
Indispensable LU to NAS system. System LU indicates NAS
OS LU, dump storage LU, failure information LU, NAS
Shared LU, backup LU of NAS Shared LU and command
device.
Uninterrupted Power Supply
A backup power supply which is mounted on the AMS200
unit to prevent shutdown of the unit even when power
stoppage or momentary power interruption occurs.
LU for storing user data in the NAS system.
User LU

Write
cache
278
Appendix A Glossary
When data is written from a host computer onto a disk
array subsystem, it is not written directly on the disk drive
but written in cache memory. In this way, the disk array
subsystem can return a writing completion report
promptly. This writing method using cache memory is
called write cache.

LU Mapping Mode
Depends on the System Configuration
Note 1: When the AMS200 is connected, the logical unit which is not wanted to be accessed
by the port must be masked by means of the LU mapping mode.
Note 2: When the DHCP mode is validated, the IP Address is acquired from the DHCP server.
If the DHCP server is not started up or the DHCP function has been wrongly set, the
acquisition of the IP Address will fail and the IP Address of the subsystem will remain
“0.0.0.0”. (This is a state in which Storage Navigator-Modular or the Web cannot be used via
a LAN.)
Note 3: Effective only when the iSCSI interface is added.

Note 2: Although the subsystem with a configuration of RAID6, RAID 5, RAID 1, or RAID 1+0
provides data reliability enhanced by means of redundancy, a possibility remains that user
data is lost owing to an unexpected failure of a host computer or hardware/software of the
subsystem itself. Therefore, users are requested to back up all data for restoration in case
where the original data is lost.
RAID 0+1 is described in place of RAID 1+0 in some places, however, it has the same meaning
as RAID 1+0.
Note 3: Value of maximum configuration (in the case where all the mountable Disk drives
and Controller are mounted).
Note 4: Power requirement in the case of the maximum configuration is shown. When
planning facilities such as the uninterrupted power supply (UPS), specify the power factor as
100% for calculation. Value at 100 V/200 V is shown.
(Example: 300 W=300 VA)
The actual required power may exceed the value shown in the table when the tolerance is
included.
Note 5: Power current of N×2 described in this table is required for operation by a single
power supply unit.
Note 6: When one of the two power supply units fails, another power supply unit requires
electric current for the two power supply units. Therefore, plan the power supply facility in
which the current carrying capacity of one of the power supply units is a total capacity of
the two power supply units.
Note 7: A noise emitted at the time of start is not included.
Note 8: The start-up time may be longer than three minutes depending on the configuration.
Note 9: It is recommended that the RAID level is configured within 6D+1P.

Note 1:
„
Non-volatility of data in the cache memory is ensured against power trouble such as a
sudden power failure. It transfers data in the Cache memory to Disk drives by turning off
the power normally, and prevents the battery charge from being wasted.
„
When the subsystem enters the Cache Backup mode, a warning (lighting of the orange
LED) informing of a voltage drop of the battery may be issued when the subsystem is
started. It shows that the remaining capacity of the battery is not sufficient, and in this
state, the subsystem operates disabling the Write Cache function automatically.
When the battery is charged, the warning indication disappears, and the subsystem
continues the operation enabling the Write Cache function.
The warning indication disappears within 6 hours at the latest. Even when the warning is
being indicated, normal functional operation is assured although the operation is
performed in the Write-Through mode and the R/W performance is lowered because the
Write Cache function is disabled.
The battery is subject to the effect of the environmental temperature; therefore, avoid
using a battery in unnecessarily continuous operation at a high temperature.
„
If the subsystem is not energized for more than three months, over-discharging of the
battery occurs and can result in unrecoverable damage. The battery must be energized
more than 6 hours at least once a month, or the subsystem must be stored with the
switch of the battery turned off. Even with the switch turned off, the battery discharges
naturally. In this case, charge the battery once per six months for longer than 6 hours.

Fibre Channel Connection Specifications
System Configuration
Connecting the host computer and the AMS200 through the FC-SW enables you to configure a
system that is logically connected with more devices than the combined number of ports.
However, the maximum number of I/O processing ports for the host computer and TrueCopy
remote replication is 128.
When constructing a system with the FC-AL or AC-SW:
„
If you use the least Fibre Channel devices connected with a Fibre Channel loop, you will
have superior higher performance.
„
Since high-speed serial data transfer is performed via Fibre Channel, use high-quality
Fibre Channel cables which conform to the FC-PH standard.

Primitive Signals
A Primitive Signal a signal that has special meaning. The following Primitive Signals are
defined.
IDLE:
An IDLE is a Primitive Signal transmitted on the link to indicate an operational Port
facility is ready for frame transmission and reception. The IDLE is transferred when no
frame, R_RDY, or primitive sequence is being transferred on a link.
R_RDY (Receiver Ready):
The R_RDY indicates that a single Class 1 connect-request (SOFc1), Class 2, or Class 3
frame was received and that the interface buffer which received the frame is available
for further frame reception.
ARBx (Arbitrate) --- FC-AL:
An ARBx is a Primitive Signal transmitted on a Loop by a participating L_Port to request
access to the Loop. It may be sent instead of the IDLE when the AMS200 is connected to
the FC-AL.
OPNyx (Open full-duplex) --- FC-AL:
An OPNyx is a Primitive Signal transmitted on a Loop by a participating L_Port to
indicate that it is ready for Data and Link Control frame transmission and reception.
OPNyy (Open half-duplex) --- FC-AL:
An OPNyy is a Primitive Signal transmitted on a Loop by a participating N_Port to
indicate that it is ready for Data and Link Control frame transmission and Link Control
frame reception.
OPNfr (Open broadcast replicate) --- FC-AL:
An OPNyy is a Primitive Signal transmitted on a Loop by a participating L_Port which
desires to communicate with all participating L_Ports on the Loop.
OPNyr (Open selective replicate) --- FC-AL:
An OPNyr is a Primitive Signal transmitted on a Loop by a participating L_Port which
desires to communicate with a subset of L_Ports on the Loop.
302
Appendix D Interfaces
CLS (Close) --- FC-AL:
A CLS is sent by the L_Port. When the L_Port sends the CLS, it does not transfer the
frame and the R_RDY to the current circuit.
The CLS shows that the control of the loop is ready to be abandoned or has already been
abandoned.
MRKtx (Mark) --- FC-AL:
A MRKtx is a Primitive Signal transmitting on a Loop by a master control point to
synchronize other Nodes.
„
Primitive Sequences
A Primitive sequences form an ordered set and they are transferred repeatedly and
continuously while the certain condition exists. Types of the primitive sequence are
shown below.
NOS (Not Operational):
The NOS Primitive Sequence is transmitted to indicate that the Port transmitting this
Sequence has detected a Link Failure condition or is Off-line, waiting for OLS to be
received.
OLS (Off-line):
The OLS Primitive Sequence is transmitted to indicate that the port transmitting this
Sequence is:
–
Initiating the Link Initialization Protocol,
–
Receiving and recognizing NOS, or
–
Entering the Off-line State
LR (Link Reset):
The LR Primitive Sequence is transmitted by a Port to initiate the Link Reset Protocol or
to recover from a Link Time-out. Besides, the LR is possible to be sent when the N_Port
which supports the Class 1 service becomes unable to decide the connection status.
LRR (Link Reset Response):
The LRR Primitive Sequence is transmitted by a Port to indicate that it is receiving and
recognizes the LR Primitive Sequence.
LIP (Loop Initialization) --- FC-AL:
The LIP Primitive Sequence is used by an L_Port to detect if it is part of a Loop or to
recover from certain Loop errors.
LPEyx (Loop Port Enable) ---FC-AL:
The LPEyx is sent on the loop to reset the bypass circuit of the L_Port which was
bypassed before and to put the L_Port in the enabled status.
LPEfx (Loop Port Enable all) --- FC-AL:
The LPEfx Primitive Sequence is transmitted on a Loop to reset all Bypass Circuit(s) that
may have been previously set and enable all L_Port to participate on the Loop.
LPByx (Loop Port Bypass) --- FC-AL:
The LPByx Primitive Sequence is transmitted on a Loop to set the Bypass Circuit and to
bypass an L_Port.

Initialization Process
„
Link Initialization
When the array unit is turned on and becomes ready, the AMS200 performs the Link
Initialization process. The LR, LRR, NOS, OLS, and IDLE are exchanged between
subsystem and the connected N_Port, and frames cannot be transmitted until the Active
state.
The details of the Link Initialization process is shown in the Table D.15.
At the beginning, the AMS200 becomes OLS Transmit state, and the Link Initialization
process continues until the Active state.

Loop Initialization
When the array unit is turned on and becomes ready and the Arbitrated Loop is detected,
the AMS200 performs the Loop Initialization process.
The Loop Initialization is performed by ARBx (Arbitrate), LIP (Loop Initialization), CLS
(Close), and the following Loop Initialization frames:
LISM: Select Master based on 8-byte Port_Name.
LIFA: Fabric Assign AL_PA bit map.
LIPA: Previously Acquired AL_PA bit map.
LIHA: Hard Assigned AL_PA bit map.
LISA: Soft Assigned AL_PA bit map.
LIRP: Report AL_PA position map.
316
Appendix D Interfaces
LILP: Loop AL_PA position map.
The AMS200 transmits LIP first. When LIP is detected by the AMS200, the array controller
transmits LISM. When the same LISM as the AMS200 has transmitted is received at the array
controller, the subsystem becomes a Loop Master, and the subsystem transmits and receives
ARBx, LIFA, LIPA, LIHA, LISA, LIRP, and LILP with address map, and determines the AL_PA of
each L_Port. At the end of the Loop Initialization, the subsystem transmits and receives CLS.
When the AMS200 does not become a Loop Master, the transmission of LIFA, LIHA, LISA, LIRP,
and LILP are initiated by the Loop Master. The AMS200 receives bit map information, and
may add own AL_PA, and transmits it to the next L_Port. At the end of the Loop
Initialization, the subsystem receives and transmits CLS.

Appendix I
Number of Logical Blocks
Set the number of logical blocks for each logical unit using the following multiples in
accordance with RAID levels.
Note: All values of storage capacities in following tables are calculated as
1 Gbyte = 1,000,000,000 bytes.
(This definition is different from 1 Kbyte = 1,024 bytes.)
A logical unit can divide all RAID groups into up to 512. Set the number of logical blocks set
for each logical unit using the following multiples in accordance with RAID levels.

Appendix I Number of Logical Blocks
When dividing RAID groups into multiple logical units, set the sum total of the number of
logical blocks of each logical unit below the number of logical blocks per parity shown below.
However, when creating multiple parity groups in each RAID group, set them below the
number of logical blocks of one parity group multiplied by the number of parity groups.
The number of logical blocks of one parity group is shown below.
