Storage Media
Following storage media are available

Up to three 2.5" SATA hard disk or

Up to three 2.5" solid state drives.
A solid state disk drive is a data storage drive that uses memory elements in
place of a rotating disk to store data. The SSD easily subsitutes the hard
disk and emulates a hard disk drive interface. The most SSDs are flash
memory based.
Change Of the Hard Disk Drive
A hot swap, i.e. a change of the hard disk during operation, is only
permitted in RAID.

RAID Onboard (optional)
General
RAID stands for «Redundant Array of Independent Disks». This is a method
to interconnect several data carriers, e.g. to store data redundantly or to increase data throughput. By creating such a data redundancy a system can
be recovered e.g. after a hard disk failure.
There are different ways to create data redundancy. These ways are classified by RAID levels.
The RAID Controller used in the BEETLE /MII-plus (BOS) supports the RAID
level 1. With this method data will be mirrored i.e. data will be stored on two
independent data carriers (Hard Disk 1 and 2).
The advantage of this procedure is a complete data security.
The standard H1 motherboard is equipped with a RAID onboard controller.
However, the use of this controller is an option.
The standard G41 motherboard is not equipped with a RAID onboard controller.
Note: Linux supporting drivers are not on offer. Therefore, the lower
row of LED neither receives signals nor displays a status. Only the
activities are visible.
Switch-off button (Alarm)
The switch-off button for an alarm is located on the rear side of the BEETLE
system. Pushing the button will switch off an acoustic signal, that is generated through an error message of a hard disk.
With a switch-off button installed the COM8* interface is not available.

The advantage of this procedure is a complete data security.
Instead of a RAID onboard controller you optionally can use the RAID Controller. This Controller supports the data maintenance on two hard disks. Additionally, the web-based “Promise Array Management Software (WebPAM)
offers a user-friendly management for operating and setting-up the hard disk
arrays.
The system-specific parameters are stored on the hard disks and facilitate
the data migration in case a change of hardware should be necessary.
If a hard disk fails you will hear an acoustic signal which only can be
stopped by changing the hard disk! However, you can switch-off the
signal via software setting.

COM5*-COM8* Interfaces (optional)
The standard system is configured with three further COM* interfaces. In
addition you can install an optional PCI board with maximal four energised
COM* interfaces (COM5*, COM6*, COM7*, COM8*).
Scanners, customer and operator displays without own power supply are
connected to these serial interfaces.
The interface connection is a 9-pin D-sub jack.
Make sure that the connector for the customer display is screwed firmly to
the socket to prevent possible malfunctioning. Power is supplied via this
jack.


You must always discharge yourself (e. g. by touching a grounded
object) before working with boards containing ESDs.

The equipment and tools you use must be free of static charges.

Pull out the power plug before inserting or pulling out boards containing
ESDs.

Always hold boards with ESDs by their edges.

Never touch pins or conductors on boards fitted with ESDs.

Starting Up the System
After installing the BEETLE /M-II plus (BOS), switch on the system by using
the ON/OFF button on the front panel and the power switch on the power
supply.
The system first performs an automatic self-test to test its basic functions.
For example, you may see the following message (irrespective of processor
type) on the monitor:
WN „ID xx/xx Date“
xx/xx is the placeholder of the BIOS version number.
The system then determines the medium from which the operating system
and the application are to be booted. Each medium is assigned a logical
drive according to the configuration of your BEETLE /M-II plus.
The following media can be assigned a drive:

Network

Hard disk drive/solid state drive

USB drive
The logical drives are designated C: and D:.
The network is always assigned to the C: drive during the runup procedure.
The hard disk can be assigned to the C: or D: drive. The system can only be
started from the hard disk if the disk has been configured as the C: drive.
Corresponding to the Setup configuration the modular BEETLE /M-II plus
(BOS) can be booted from the following drives:

Hard disk drive C:

LAN module with BOOTPROM

USB drive
Please mind that the storage medium must be system-boot-capable.
If the operating system has started up without error, the application software
is automatically booted if necessary.
