Introducing the 16-Bit UltraSCSI Hub
(Rack-Mountable)
This chapter gives a brief physical description and describes the functions and functional
specifications of the DWZZH-S5 and DWZZH-09 UltraSCSI Hubs.
The series of DWZZH Hubs are SCSI–2 and draft SCSI–3 (ANSI X379.2/91–
10R3) compliant capable with data transfer rates of up to 40 Mbytes per second.
The two versions of these Hubs are:
1.1
•
DWZZH-S5: A shelf-contained, rack-mountable, 5.25" SBB (large) Hub
with four host ports and one storage port, all differential. See Figure 1–1.
•
DWZZH-09: A shelf-contained, rack-mountable Hub consisting of two
5.25" SBBs (large) with eight host ports and one storage port, all
differential. See Figure 1–2.
UltraSCSI Hub Features
Most device SCSI buses are either 8-bit or 16-bit single-ended, physical buses.
Some controllers and hosts use differential buses and others use a single-ended
bus. Single-ended and differential physical buses are not compatible. The
UltraSCSI protocol disables both buses when they are connected together. By
using an UltraSCSI Hub you can accomplish the following:
•
Provide radial disconnect where remaining connections can continue to
operate.
•
Provide fair SCSI arbitration for host nodes (DWZZH-05, -S5 and the -09
UltraSCSI Hubs only).

Product Descriptions
1.2.1 DWZZH-S5
A DWZZH-S5 large UltraSCSI Hub (See Figure 1-1) consists of two 180W
power supplies, three bulkhead covers, a personality card cover, and a
DWZZH-05 SBB mounted within a shelf. This model is rack-mountable, in
either a horizontal or vertical position. Termination is provided by each of the
host ports. A feature of the DWZZH-S5 Hub is that it is upgradeable from a five
port Hub to a nine port Hub with the purchase of a DWZZH-09 Upgrade Kit. The
kit contains another 5.25" SBB (large) Hub (DWZZH-A5), a tri-link and 0.5m
cable, and instructions to complete the installation, and configuration for the
upgrade.
CAUTION
Connecting a single-ended bus cable to the
differential connector causes the SCSI bus to fail.

1.2.2 DWZZH-09
The DWZZH-09 is made up of two large Hubs connected by a 0.5m VHDCI
cable (BN 37A-0E). A tri-link attached to the DWZZH-A5 portion of the Hub
allows the attachment of a storage device up to 25 meters away from the Hub.
The Hub provides radial connectivity by allowing the user to connect up to eight
host bus adapters from any number of distributed systems to the DWZZH-09.
Termination is provided by each of the host ports. (See Figure 1-2.)

Configuration Note
According to the UltraSCSI Configuration Guidelines (included in your
purchase), the maximum allowable cable distance for an UltraSCSI Domain is 74
meters. Each element, including the DWZZH-09 has an associated relative cable
distance value associated. Cables count as their specified distance, (including the
0.5 meter jumper cable between the SBB Hubs); but each DWZZH SBB counts
as an 18.5 meter cable equivalent. This means that communications from a
server attached to the left-hand SBB to a server attached to the right-hand SBB,
already has a 37.5 meter cable equivalent distance cost to propagate the signal
through the DWZZH-09 Hub. Therefore, if the distance from server A to the Hub
is X, and the distance from server B to the Hub is Y, then the sum cable distance
of X and Y must be less than or equal to 36.5 meters (74 – 37.5). Please note that
any SCSI transaction from a host to the storage subsystem only propagates
through one of the SBBs. This means that you may still have a cable length of 25
meters between the storage subsystem and the DS-DWZZH-09. Refer to Figure
2–4.

Using the 16-Bit UltraSCSI Hub
This chapter discusses fair arbitration of the SCSI bus by the 5.25" SBB Hub. It
describes addressing configurations, tells you how to use the large Hub front panel, and
gives guidelines for selecting the SCSI cables.
UltraSCSI configuration guidelines are documented in EK-ULTRA-CG. These
guidelines include a list of all UltraSCSI components and the last few example
configurations include an UltraSCSI Hub. Refer to the configuration guidelines
for bus length and SCSI bus data transmission rates.
3.1
Large Hub Fair Arbitration
The DWZZH-S5 and the DWZZH-09 can be operated with Fair Arbitration
enabled or disabled. Although it is recommended that both be operated with Fair
Arbitration enabled, it is not required.
In order to allow four or more host SCSI IDs to participate on a single SCSI bus
and to prevent lower SCSI host IDs from being starved for bus time, a fair
arbitration (Fair ARB) scheme is employed. Fair ARB works by assigning SCSI
ID 7, the highest priority ID to the Hub. When a SCSI arbitration phase occurs,
all the arbitrating IDs are captured in a register.
ID7 is reserved and may not be assigned to any SCSI device connected to the
Ultra SCSI Hub, regardless of having FairARB enabled or disabled.
CAUTION
Most manufacturers ship Host Bus Adapters with
a default SCSI ID of 7. Ensure that the ID is
changed before establishing a connection betwen
the adapter and the Hub.
The winning ID for this group will be the highest priority ID and allowed bus
privilege. After this ID has completed its transaction, the ID will be removed
from the group and at the next arbitration phase, the remaining highest ID will be
serviced. This will continue until all of the IDs in the group have been serviced
once. All requests from IDs not contained in the register will be backed off using
ID 7.
EK–SMDZS–UG. B01
3–1
DWZZH 16–Bit UltraSCSI Hub (Rack-Mountable)
After all the IDs in the group have been serviced, a new group of IDs will be
captured at the next arbitration phase. The fair arbitration algorithm only applies
to host port SCSI IDs as defined by the assignment in each configuration.
CAUTION
Running the UltraSCSI Hub under heavy I/O with
Fair Arbitration disabled may result in SCSI bus
starvation for hosts with low IDs.
3.2
Large Hub Addressing Configurations
The large UltraSCSI Hub has a specific SCSI ID configuration. The SCSI IDs are
assigned to specific physical locations in the Hub. This allows the fair arbitration
logic in the Hub to correctly identify the SCSI IDs that are participating in a fair
arbitration cycle.
CAUTION
The SCSI ID of the HOST adapter must
correspond to the assigned ID of the Hub port, to
which the host port adapter is connected.
Mismatched SCSI IDs will cause the SCSI bus to
hang.
Figures 3-1 and 3-2 show the physical layout of the ports and their associated
SCSI ID assignments on the DWZZH-S5 and DWZZH-09 Hubs.
3.2.1 Narrow Addressing Setting
The large Hub can be used with SCSI bus architectures that are limited to eight
ID assignments such as Digital Unix 4.x and earlier versions (Figure 3-5 shows
narrow ID assignments). A jumper on the rear of the Hub (Figure 3-6) must be
installed to make the Hub respond to SCSI IDs 3 – 0 on the host ports. It should
be noted that the DWZZH-09 Hub cannot be put into a narrow addressing mode.

3.3.1 Fair ARB Disable
The large Hub contains a switch on the front panel that allows the user to disable
the Fair ARB feature of the Hub. When Fair ARB is disabled, the Hub services
SCSI arbitration cycles in the conventional SCSI priority order. Host port SCSI
ID assignments are not linked to the physical port location in the Hub when Fair
ARB is disabled.
3.3.2 Indicators
The large Hub has two indicators on the front panel. The green LED indicates
that POWER is applied to the Hub, while the yellow LED indicates that the SCSI
bus is BUSY.

Determining the Configuration
The UltraSCSI Hub is used in end–bus SCSI bus configurations only. The SCSI
bus segments require TERMPOWER supplied from the remote connection to
enable the SCSI Hub port for that segment. Each port on the UltraSCSI Hub has
its own terminators.
All SCSI buses are terminated at the physical ends of the bus. This is true even
when using a DWZZH UltraSCSI Hub. DWZZH UltraSCSI Hubs are factory set
to terminate the SCSI bus. No user configuration of the SCSI terminators is
required.
3.5
Selecting the SCSI Cables
The StorageWorks Solutions UltraSCSI Configuration Guide describes SCSI
cables in detail. When selecting a cable you must consider the cable connector
clearance. Be sure to determine the type connector compatible with the controller
connector. In some cases you must use a right–angle connector when connecting
the cable to the Host Bus Adapter because there is not enough clearance to use a
straight connector.

SWCC and UltraSCSI Hubs
This chapter is intended to provide you with important information regarding the use of
StorageWorks Command Console on SCSI buses that have an UltraSCSI Hub. While the
information provided here is important, it is essential that you have read the SWCC
Manual and Release Notes.
5.1
Agents and Storage
It is highly recommended that you only run one SWCC agent on one of the
servers that can access a particular storage subsystem behind the DS-DWZZH-09
UltraSCSI Hub. Using SWCC through the client-agent model is very similar to
using a serial terminal to access the HSZ-70 controller; running multiple agents
to access one storage subsystem would show up as multiple storage windows on
the SWCC-Client machine. This could be a potential problem, as the Client
would see multiple HSZ-70 subsystems, when in fact, only one exists, but is
being displayed multiple times.
NOTE
If you have multiple storage subsystems behind
the DS-DWZZH UltraSCSI Hub, be sure to name
each of your storage subsystems uniquely and
carefully (when you configure SWCC) so that you
can distinguish between them easily.
The SWCC Graphical User Interface (GUI) neither displays when HSZ access ID
restriction is being enforced nor prevents changes to restricted configurations
from the GUI. For example, consider having four servers, each with a uniquely
identified Host Bus Adapter attached to a DS-DWZZH 5-port UltraSCSI Hub,
connected to a RA 7000 Subsystem with 24 disks (see Figure 5–1). Furthermore,
consider the case where you have access ID restrictions configured such that
each SCSI ID 12-15 could access a unique set of six disks in the storage cabinet.

DWZZH 16-Bit UltraSCSI HUB (Rack-Mountable)
This type of configuration would prevent systems with different SCSI IDs from
accessing disks ‘belonging to’ a particular SCSI ID, which promotes data
security between servers on a shared SCSI bus; however, it does not prevent
SWCC from performing tasks on those disks. In other words, if you set up the
SWCC client to have configuration capability (see SWCC documentation) then
you can access everything in the storage subsystem, regardless of HSZ-70 access
ID restrictions.
For further information on setting up and configuring agents on HSZ controllers,
please see the SWCC and controller documentation.

Glossary
This Glossary includes an alphabetized listing and brief definition of the abbreviations,
acronyms, COMPAQ-specific references, and other technical terms that are used in this
manual and that may be unfamiliar to the reader.
adapter
See SCSI bus converter.
building block shelf
See SBB shelf.
controller
A hardware/firmware device that manages communications on behalf of host systems over the
SCSI bus to devices, such as the HSC-series, HSJ-series, and HSZ-series controllers. Controllers
typically differ by the type of interface to the host and provide functions beyond what the
devices support.
differential SCSI bus
A signal's level is determined by the potential difference between two wires. A differential bus
is more robust and less subject to electrical noise than is a single-ended bus.
DWZZC
A StorageWorks compatible 16-bit SCSI bus converter.
See SCSI bus converter.
DWZZH
A StorageWorks compatible 16-bit UltraSCSI Hub.
electrostatic discharge
See ESD.
ESD
Electrostatic discharge is the discharge of a potentially harmful static electric voltage as a result
of improper grounding.
host
The primary or controlling computer or any such unit (in a multiple computer network) to which
storage is attached.

Glossary–1
DWZZH 16–Bit UltraSCSI Hub (Rack-Mountable)
initiator
A SCSI device that requests another device on the bus to perform an operation. Any device on
the bus can be an initiator or a target.
logical bus
A single-ended, physical bus connected to a differential, physical bus by a SCSI bus converter.
personality module
The BA356 module that interfaces the SCSI-bus to the BA356 shelf.
physical bus
Two SCSI terminators separated by cables, connectors, and/or the backplane circuitry.
SBB
StorageWorks building block. The basic building block of the StorageWorks product line. Any
device conforming to shelf mechanical and electrical standards installed in either a 3½-inch or
5¼-inch carrier is considered to be an SBB, whether it is a storage device, a power supply, or
other device.
SBB shelf
The common name for any StorageWorks shelf that contains only power supply and storage
SBBs.
SCSI
Small Computer System Interface. This ANSI interface defines the physical and electrical
parameters of a parallel I/O bus used to connect computers and devices. The StorageWorks
subsystem implementation uses SCSI–2 for the transfer of data.
SCSI bus converter
Sometimes referred to as an adapter. (1) A connecting device that permits the attachment of
accessories or provides the capability to mount or link units. (2) The device that connects a
differential SCSI bus to a single-ended SCSI bus.
SCSI device
A host computer adapter, a peripheral controller, or an intelligent peripheral that can be attached
to the SCSI bus.
SCSI device ID
The bit-significant, representation of the SCSI addressing referring to one of the signal lines
numbered 0 through 15. Also referred to as target ID. For example, SCSI device ID 1 would be
represented as 00001.
SCSI mid-bus position
The physical location of a controller or a device that the SCSI bus passes through enroute to the
controller or device that contains the SCSI bus termination.
Glossary–2

Glossary
SCSI cable
A 68-conductor (34 twisted pairs) cable used for differential bus connections.
single-ended SCSI bus
A bus in which each signal’s logic level is determined by the voltage of a single wire in relation
to ground.
Small Computer System Interface
See SCSI.
StorageWorks
The Compaq set of enclosure products that allows customers to design and configure their own
storage subsystem. Components include power, packaging, and interconnections in a
StorageWorks shelf. SBBs and array controllers are integrated therein to form level enclosures
to house the shelves. Standard mounting devices for SBBs are also included.
StorageWorks building block
See SBB.
target
A SCSI device that performs an operation requested by an initiator. Any device on the bus can
be an initiator or a target.
target ID
See SCSI device ID.
termpower
Is an electrical current that is limited by self-resetting fuses.
UltraSCSI
Is an improvement in SCSI technology that was developed by the StorageWorks Engineering
Group at Compaq Computer Corporation , and subsequently standardized by the ANSI SCSI
committee (X3T10), which increases the maximum transfer rate on the SCSI bus from 10 MHz
to 20 MHz (for a Wide SCSI bus this means an increase in maximum bus bandwidth from 20
MB/sec to 40 MB/sec).
