There is no TruCluster Software Products software release that coincides
with the availability of support for the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub, so
DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub 1–1
this technical update provides the DS-DWZZH-05 configuration information
that would appear in Chapter 4 of the TruCluster Software Products
Hardware Configuration manual.
1.2 DS-DWZZH Overview
The DS-DWZZH series UltraSCSI hubs are SCSI-2 and draft SCSI-3
compliant SCSI 16-bit signal converters capable of data transfer rates of up
to 40 MB per second. Cluster member systems and HSZ50 or HSZ70 RAID
array controllers are radially connected to the hub ports.
A DS-DWZZH UltraSCSI hub:
•
Improves the reliability of the detection of cable faults.
•
Provides for bus isolation of cluster systems while allowing the
remaining connections to continue to operate.
•
Allows for more separation of systems and storage in a cluster
configuration because each SCSI bus segment can be up to 25 meters in
length. This allows a total separation of nearly 50 meters between a
system and the storage.
For more information on the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub, see the
following documents:
•
DWZZH 16-Bit UltraSCSI Hub User’s Guide (EK-DWZZH-UG)

Using the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub
in a Cluster Configuration
2.1 DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub Description
The DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub is supported on TruCluster Available
Server Software Version 1.4A and TruCluster Available Server Software
Version 1.5 and TruCluster Production Server Software Version 1.4A and
TruCluster Production Server Software Version 1.5.
The DS-DWZZH-05:
•
Is a 5.25-inch StorageWorks Building Block (SBB)
•
Has five VHDCI differential SCSI bus connectors
•
Uses SCSI ID 7 whether or not fair arbitration mode is enabled.
Therefore, you cannot use SCSI ID 7 for a RAID array controller or for
the member systems’ SCSI bus adapter.
•
Contains internal termination for each port; therefore, it terminates the
hub end of each SCSI bus segment.
_____________________
Note
_____________________
Do not put trilinks on the DS-DWZZH-05 as it is not possible
to remove the DS-DWZZH-05 internal termination.
•
Requires that termination power (termpwr) be provided by the SCSI
bus host adapters on each SCSI bus segment.
_____________________
Note
_____________________
The DS-DWZZH-05 is designed to sense loss of termination
power (such as a cable pull or termpwr not enabled on the
host adapter) and shut down the applicable port to prevent
corrupted signals on the remaining SCSI bus segments.
2.2 DS-DWZZH-05 Configuration Guidelines
The DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub can be installed in:
Using the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub in a Cluster Configuration 2–1
•
A StorageWorks DS-BA356 shelf (which has the required 180-watt
power supply).
•
A wide BA356 which has been upgraded to the 180-watt power supply
with the DS-BA35X-HH option.
_____________________
Note
_____________________
Dual power supplies are recommended for any BA356 shelf
containing a DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub in order to
provide a higher level of availability between cluster member
systems and storage.
•
The lower righthand device slot of the BA370 shelf within the RA7000
or ESA 10000 RAID array subsystems. This position minimizes cable
lengths and interference with disks.
A DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub uses the DS-BA356, BA356, or BA370
shelf only to provide its power and mechanical support (it is not connected
to the shelf internal SCSI bus).
Maximum configurations with combinations of DS-DWZZH-03 (see
technical update TU-DWZZH-03) and DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hubs, and
disks in the same DS-BA356 or BA356 storage shelf containing dual
180-watt power supplies are shown in Table 2–1.
_______________________
Note
_______________________
With dual 180-watt power supplies installed, there are slots
available for six 3.5-inch SBBs or two 5.25-inch SBBs.

aDS-DWZZH UltraSCSI hubs and disk drives may coexist in a storage shelf. Installed disk drives are not
associated with the DS-DWZZH UltraSCSI hub SCSI bus segments; they are on the SCSI bus connected to
the personality module.
bIf the personality module is installed, you can install a maximum of four DS-DWZZH-03 UltraSCSI hubs.
cThe personality module must be installed to provide a path to any disks installed in the BA356 or
DS-BA356 shelf.
2.3 DS-DWZZH-05 Fair Arbitration
Although each cluster member system and storage controller connected to
an UltraSCSI hub are on separate SCSI bus segments, they all share a
common SCSI bus and its bandwidth. As the number of systems accessing
the storage controllers increases, it is likely that the adapter with the
highest priority SCSI ID will obtain a higher proportion of the UltraSCSI
bandwidth.
The DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub provides a fair arbitration feature that
overrides the traditional SCSI bus priority. Fair arbitration applies only to
the member systems, not to the storage controllers (which are assigned
higher priority than the member system host adapters).
You enable fair arbitration by placing the switch on the front of the
DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub to the Fair position (see Figure 2–1).
Fair arbitration works as follows. The DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub is
assigned the highest SCSI ID, which is 7. During the SCSI arbitration
phase, the hub, because it has the highest priority, captures the SCSI ID of
all host adapters arbitrating for the bus. The hub compares the SCSI IDs of
the host adapters requesting use of the SCSI bus, and then allows the
device with the highest priority SCSI ID to take control of the SCSI bus.
That SCSI ID is removed from the group of captured SCSI IDs prior to the
next comparison.
After the host adapter has been serviced, if there are still SCSI IDs retained
from the previous arbitration cycle, the next highest SCSI ID is serviced.
When all devices in the group have been serviced, the DS-DWZZH-05
repeats the sequence at the next arbitration cycle.
Fair arbitration is disabled by placing the switch on the front of the
DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub in the Disable position (see Figure 2–1).
With fair arbitration disabled, the SCSI requests are serviced in the
Using the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub in a Cluster Configuration 2–3
conventional manner; the highest SCSI ID asserted during the arbitration
cycle obtains use of the SCSI bus.
_______________________
Note
_______________________
Host port SCSI ID assignments are not linked to the physical
port when fair arbitration is disabled.
The DS-DWZZH-05 retains SCSI ID 7 regardless of whether fair
aarbitrarion is enabled or not.
2.4 DS-DWZZH-05 Address Configurations
The DS-DWZZH-05 has two addressing modes; wide addressing mode and
narrow addressing mode. With either addressing mode, if fair arbitration is
enabled, each hub port is assigned a specific SCSI ID. This allows the fair
arbitration logic in the hub to identify the SCSI ID of the device
participating in the arbitration phase of the fair arbitration cycle.
_____________________
Caution
_____________________
If fair arbitration is enabled, The SCSI ID of the host adapter
must match the SCSI ID assigned to the hub port. Mismatching
or duplicating SCSI IDs will cause the hub to hang.
SCSI ID 7 is reserved for the DS-DWZZH-05 whether fair
arbitration is enabled or not.
Jumper W1, accessible from the rear of the DS-DWZZH-05 (see Figure 2–2)
determines which addressing mode is used. The jumper is installed to
select narrow addressing mode and is presently the only addressing mode
supported with Compaq’s DIGITAL UNIX operating system. If fair
arbitration is enabled, the SCSI IDs for the host adapters are 0, 1, 2, and 3
(see the port numbers not in parentheses in Figure 2–1). The controller
ports are assigned SCSI IDs 4 through 6, and the hub uses SCSI ID 7.
If jumper W1 is removed, the host adapter ports assume SCSI IDs 12, 13,
14, and 15. The controllers are assigned SCSI IDs 0 through 6. The
DS-DWZZH-05 retains the SCSI ID of 7.

2.5 SCSI Bus Termination Power
Each host adapter connected to a DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub port must
supply termination power (termpwr) to enable the termination resistors on
each end of the SCSI bus segment. If the host adapter is disconnected from
the hub, the port is disabled. Only the UltraSCSI bus segment losing
termination power is affected. The remainder of the SCSI bus operates
normally.
2.6 DS-DWZZH-05 Indicators
The DS-DWZZH-05 has two indicators on the front panel (see Figure 2–1).
The green LED indicates that power is applied to the hub. The yellow LED
indicates that the SCSI bus is busy.
2.7 Configuring a Cluster with a DS-DWZZH-05
The following sections discuss how to configure a DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI
hub in a TruCluster configuration.
2–6 Using the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub in a Cluster Configuration
To configure a TruCluster configuration using a DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI
hub, follow these steps:
1.
Configure and install the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub (Section 2.7.1)
2.
Verify that the host adapter termination is installed and cable the host
adapter to the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub (Section 2.7.2)
3.
Cable the RAID array controller to the hub:
•
HSZ50 (Section 2.7.3.1)
•
HSZ70 (Section 2.7.3.2)
2.7.1 Installing the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub
All existing versions of Compaq’s DIGITAL UNIX operating systems
support only eight devices on a SCSI bus. Therefore, narrow addressing
mode must be used.
Install the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub as follows:
1.
Install the W1 jumper to enable narrow addressing mode (see
Figure 2–2).
2.
If fair arbitration is to be used, ensure that the switch on the front of
the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub is in the Fair position.
3.
Install the DW-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub in a DS-BA356, BA356 (if it
has the required 180-watt power supply), or BA370 storage shelf.
2.7.2 Checking the Host Adapter and Cabling it to the Hub
At the present time only the KZPSA-BB and KZPBA-CB host adpaters are
supported for use with the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub in TruCluster
configurations with an HSZ50 or HSZ70 RAID array controller.
See the TruCluster Software Products Hardware Configuration manual and
Hardware Configuration Technical Update for DS-KZPBA-CB and verify
the following:
•
Ensure that the KZPSA-BB termination resistor SIPs (Z1 through Z5)
or KZPBA-CB termination resistors (RM1 through RM8) are installed.
•
If fair arbitration is selected on the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub,
ensure that the host adapter SCSI ID matches the controller port SCSI
ID on the DS-DWZZH-05 for the port that the adapter will be cabled to.
Using the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub in a Cluster Configuration 2–7
•
Ensure that no member systems’ host adapter SCSI ID is set at 7
(because the DS-DWZZH-05 uses SCSI ID 7).
•
Connect a BN38C cable between the host adapter and the appropriate
DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub port. Each connection forms a SCSI bus
segment with the host adapter and the hub. The maximum length of a
SCSI bus segment, including cable and internal device bus length, is 25
meters.
2.7.3 Cabling the RAID array Storage Subsystem to the
DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub
To prepare the storage portion of a cluster using HSZ50 or HSZ70 RAID
Array controllers, see Section 2.7.3.1 and Section 2.7.3.2.
_______________________
Note
_______________________
Ensure that the SCSI IDs assigned to the RAID array controllers
are not the same as a SCSI ID assigned to a KZPSA-BB or
KZPBA-CB SCSI adapter (0, 1, 2, or 3 if fair arbitration is
enabled) or the SCSI ID assigned to the DS-DWZZH-05 (7).
2.7.3.1 Cabling an HSZ50 to a DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI Hub
To prepare the storage portion of a cluster using HSZ50 RAID Array
controllers, follow these steps while referring to Figure 2–3 and Table 2–2:
1.
Attach an H885-AA trilink connector to each HSZ50 controller on the
SCSI bus segment.
2.
Attach an H879-AA terminator to the H885-AA trilink connector on
the HSZ50 controller that will be on the end of the SCSI bus segment.
3.
If there are two HSZ50 controllers, connect the two H885-AA trilinks
on the controllers with a BN21K (or BN21L) cable.
4.
Connect the DS-DWZZH-05 UltraSCSI hub to the open H885-AA
connector on the HSZ50 with a BN38C cable. The length of any SCSI
bus segment must not exceed 25 meters.
_____________________
Note
_____________________
One end of the BN38C cable is 68-pin high density. The
other end is 68-pin VHDCI. The DS-DWZZH-05 accepts the
68-pin VHDCI connector.
