System Overview
Figure 1-1 shows a typical iS325 storage system configuration in a Storage Area Network
(SAN). The SAN shown is an Ethernet network used solely for exchanging data between the
customer's servers and the iS325 storage system. The Ethernet bandwidth used by the
servers exchanging data with the iS325 storage system can be very high. Using a separate
Ethernet to act as a SAN keeps that data from interfering with the customer's existing LAN
and improves security.

Observe the following considerations when selecting a location to install the iS325 storage
system.
3.1.2
„
The location should be fairly cool and dry for the acceptable temperature and humidity
ranges.
„
The location should be free of strong electromagnetic field generators (such as motors),
vibration, dust, and direct exposure to sunlight.
„
The location must provide sufficient airflow to the front and back of the iS325 storage
system for correct cooling. Ventilation must be sufficient to exhaust heat from the rear
of the equipment.
„
The location should offer a power outlet within six feet (1.82 meters) of the iS325

The iS325-10 storage system has a single 10 GE host network XFP optical transceiver
interface. This port connects to your SAN using a single mode or multimode XFP optical
cable.
1. Connect one end of a single mode or multimode XFP optical cable to the iS325 storage
system optical host network connection port. Facing the back of the iS325-10, this port
appears on the left side (see the bottom figure in Figure 2-4 on page 8).
2. Connect the other end of the cable to your SAN.

Connecting to the Management Port
Connecting a PC to the management port lets you configure and manage the iS325 storage
system. This connection is made using a PC with an installed NIC and either a cross-over
cable (if connecting directly to the management port) or a straight-through cable (if
connecting to the management port using a hub or switch).
To receive email alerts from the iS325 storage system, be sure the management port can
communicate via Ethernet with your mail server.
1. Connect either end of an Ethernet cable to a NIC installed in a PC.
2. Connect the other end of the cable into the iS325 storage system Mgmt 10/100 port.
This port is located to the right of the diagnostic port on the back panel (see Figure 2-4
on page 8).
Do not connect one NIC to the management and host network connection
ports. Connect one NIC to the management port and connect another NIC in
the same PC or a different PC to the host network connection port(s).
3.7
Connecting the Power Cords
The iS325 storage system has three power receptacles. Both must be used to connect the
iS325 to an AC outlet:
1. Plug the female end of one power cord into one of the 3-pronged power connectors on
the back of the iS325 storage system. Plug the other end of the power cord into a
working AC outlet that is not controlled by a wall switch.
2. Repeat the previous step using the second and third power cables and power receptacles
on the iS325 storage system. For best results, all three power receptacles should be on a
different circuit.
Although the iS325 storage system can operate temporarily with only two AC
power connections, an audio alarm will sound until all three power
receptacles are used.
3.8
Powering-on the iS325 Storage System
To power-on the iS325 storage system, press the power switch on the back panel. When the
iS325 storage system powers-on, the following actions occur:
„
If the iS325 storage system has a front panel Power OK LED turns green.
„
The iS325 storage system runs its power-on procedure (2-to-5 minutes), then the
Ready/Fault LED turns green and drive LEDs may flash.
The completion of the power-on process can be verified as indicated in Table 3-2.

Has a front panel boot LED.
The LED turns green when the startup process completes. If
the LED turns red, reboot the iS325 storage system. If the
problem persists, contact Technical Support.
Diagnostic port is connected to a PC via a diagnostic cable.
The message RCPC sequence complete appears on the PC
monitor. After verifying this message, disconnect the PC from
the diagnostic port.
After the iS325 storage system powers-on for the first time, it automatically loads the
factory-default configuration settings. If necessary, you can use the integraSuite
Management Center to change these settings to suit your requirements. For a description of
the array’s factory-default configuration settings and how to change them, refer to the
integraSuite Management Center User's Guide.

A.2
Upgrading or Replacing Memory
Your iS325 storage system supports up to 2 GB of buffer memory and 2 GB of system memory
using four Dual In-line Memory Module (DIMM) sockets on the iS325 storage system
Controller:
„
Two DIMM sockets (J36 and J37) are for buffer memory.
„
Two DIMM sockets (J38 and J39) are for system memory.
All four DIMM sockets accommodate standard 184-pin Double Data Rate (DDR) PC2700
(DDR333) DIMMs that support ECC. However, the iS325 storage system can be used with only
one DIMM module installed for buffer memory and system memory.
To upgrade or replace memory, use the following procedure.
1. Power down the iS325 storage system and remove the power cord from the back panel.
2. Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap.
3. Open the enclosure to access the iS325 storage system Controller (see section A.1).
4. Locate the DIMM socket where you will be removing or installing the DIMM (see Figures
A-2 and A-3).
Figure A-2. Buffer Memory DIMM Sockets

Appendix A Replacing and Upgrading FRUs
Figure A-3. System Memory DIMM Sockets
5. To remove a DIMM, carefully push the socket latches found on either side of the DIMM
socket, then pull the DIMM out of the socket (see Figure A-4). The latches hold the DIMM
tightly, so be careful not to break the socket.
Figure A-4. Removing a DIMM Module
6. Hold the new DIMM above the DIMM socket, so its polarization notch is located at the
right end of the DIMM socket.
iS325 Hardware Reference Guide
21
If only one DIMM is used for buffer memory, install it in slot J36 (the inside
connector of the two buffer memory sockets). If only one DIMM is used for
system memory, install it in slot J38 (the inside connector of the two system
memory sockets).
7. Slowly insert the new DIMM by sliding the end with the metal fingers into the DIMM
socket (see Figure A-5). Stop sliding when the DIMMM is securely seated in the socket.
Figure A-5. Inserting a DIMM
8. Snap the latches into place. Do not use excessive force, because the socket might break.
9. Replace the enclosure (see section A.1).
10. Power on the iS325 storage system. If error messages relating to memory are displayed,
remove the DIMM and reinstall it, making sure to seat the DIMM firmly in its socket.
Before replacing a DIMM, be sure that the system has been shut-down gracefully
first, and that the battery is not sustaining buffer memory. Otherwise, the
system may not be able to restart properly when it is powered on.
