Preface
Note on erasing data from hard disks when disposing of the product or transferring it
Disposing of this product or transferring it as is may enable third parties to access the data on the hard disk and use it for
unforeseen purposes. To prevent the leakage of confidential information and important data, all of the data on the hard
disk must be erased before disposal or transfer of the product.
However, it can be difficult to completely erase all of the data from the hard disk. Simply initializing (reformatting) the hard
disk or deleting files on the operating system is insufficient to erase the data, even though the data appears at a glance to
have been erased. This type of operation only makes it impossible to access the data from the operating system.
Malicious third parties can restore this data.
If you save your confidential information or other important data on the hard disk, you should completely erase the data,
instead of simply carrying out the aforementioned operation, to prevent the data from being restored. To prevent important
data on the hard disk from being leaked when the product is disposed of or transferred, you will need to take care to erase
all the data recorded on the hard disk on your own responsibility.
Furthermore, if a software license agreement restricts the transfer of the software (operating system and application
software) on the hard disk in the server or other product to a third party, transferring the product without deleting the
software from the hard disk may violate the agreement. Adequate verification from this point of view is also necessary.
Product and service inquiries
For all product use and technical inquiries, contact the distributor where you purchased your product, or a Fujitsu sales
representative or systems engineer (SE). If you do not know the appropriate contact address for inquiries about the
PRIMEQUEST 2000 series, use the Fujitsu contact line.

Warranty
If a component failure occurs during the warranty period, we will repair it free of charge in accordance with the terms of the
warranty agreement. For details, see the warranty.
Before requesting a repair
If a problem occurs with the product, confirm the problem by referring to 11.2 Troubleshooting in the PRIMEQUEST 2000
Series Administration Manual (C122-E175EN). If the error recurs, contact your sales representative or a field engineer.
Confirm the model name and serial number shown on the label affixed to the right front of the device and report it. Also
check any other required items beforehand according to 11.2 Troubleshooting in the PRIMEQUEST 2000 Series
Administration Manual (C122-E175EN).
The system settings saved by the customer will be used during maintenance.

CHAPTER 2
Preparing for Main Unit
Installation
This chapter describes the preparation before main unit installation.
This preparation includes work up to power cable connection.
2.1
Safety Precautions
Observe the following precautions when installing the main unit.
Installation of main units must follow the precautions below. Otherwise system may be damaged.
-
Follow the precautions, warnings, and instructions labelled on the main unit.
-
Do not block the vent holes.
-
Do not install the main unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or close to a device that may generate heat.
-
Do not install the main unit in a location exposed to dust, corrosive gas, or salt spray.
-
Do not install the main unit in a location subject to strong vibration. Install the main unit on a flat surface.
-
Use grounded Category 3 wiring or better. Using another type of grounded wiring may cause abnormal operation.
-
Do not route cables under the main unit. Do not allow cables to become taut.
-
Do not disconnect the power cables while the main unit power is on.
-
If it is hard to push the connector latch of a LAN cable or other cable when attempting to disconnect the cable, push it
with a flathead screwdriver.
Forcibly inserting a finger may cause personal injury or damage the unit.
-
Do not place anything on top of the main unit. Do not work above or on top of the main unit.
-
Prevent rapid rises in the ambient temperature during winter. Such an abrupt temperature change may cause
-
Do not install the main unit close to a photocopier, air-conditioning unit, welder, or other device that generates
condensation to form in the main unit. Allow sufficient warm-up time before starting operation.
electromagnetic noise.
-
Do not install the main unit close to a device that generates large amounts of electrical noise.
-
When installing the main unit, do not connect it to the power supply line for an elevator in the facility, since this would
expose it to sudden voltage drops.
-
Implement antistatic measures at the installation site.
-
Confirm that the power supply voltage and frequency follows rating values labelled on main unit.
-
Do not put any materials in the main unit. The main unit contains high-voltage components. So if metallic matter or
other electro-conductive object enters the main unit through an opening, it may cause a short circuit. This may lead to
fire, electric shock, or damage to the main unit.
-
For details on maintenance of the main unit, contact the distributor where you purchased your product, or your sales
representative.

CHAPTER 3 Work before Operating System Installation
3.4 Partition Configuration
Reserved SB configuration conditions
Reserved SB has following conditions.
- Reserved SB cannot be configured in the partition that uses TPM functions.
- An SB installed with 32GB DIMM cannot be configured on a Reserved SB of the partition, which is configured on the
SB installed with memory having various capacities (8GB, 16GB, 64GB DIMM).
- An SB with 64GB DIMM cannot be configured on an Reserved SB of the partition which is configured on the SB
installed with memory having various capacities (8GB, 16GB, 32GB DIMM).
If the above mentioned mounting conditions are not fulfilled, a message dialogue box of “Unable to register the specified
SB#x as a Reserved SB due to the home SB is TPM enabled.” would be displayed and the Reserved SB configuration
would be prevented.
Memory Operation Mode may be changed after switch over of faulty SB to Reserved SB if:
- Reserved SB is configured for partition of one SB, and
- The Reserved SB does not fulfill requirements for Memory Operation Mode
In that case, a confirmation dialogue box of “The DIMM does not satisfy requirements of the Mirror Mode. If you register the
specified SB%s as a Reserved SB, the Mirror Mode will be disabled when switching to specified SB. Are you sure to
continue?[Y/N]” would be displayed when configuring the Reserved SB. Reserved SB for partition of multiple SB must
follows conditions below. This is applicable for PRIMEQUEST 2800E.
- Mount two CPUs for Reserved SB of the partition.
- Reserved SB fulfills Memory Operation Mode requirements same as switching source partition.
- Mount the same type of CPU with the SB that configures partition for Reserved SB.
If the above mounting conditions are not fulfilled, a message dialogue box of “Unable to register the specified SB#x as a
Reserved SB because the DIMM does not satisfy requirements of Mirror Mode.” is displayed and Reserved SB
configuration would be prevented.
Points to be considered for Windows
When switching to Reserved SB in the partition operating on Windows,, Windows operating system is not activated at the
time of initial start-up after switching to Reserved SB.
Configure the Reserved SB in partition operated by Windows so that Windows can be configured automatically.
For configuration details, see “11.4.3 Settings of Dump environment (Windows)” of PRIMEQUEST 2000 series
Administration Manual (C122-E175EN). Turn on the [Start-up automatically] check box of [Start-up and recover] dialogue
box.
Consider the time required for reactivation, when the operation is stopped during SB failure resulting from the above
mentioned reasons.
Total 2 times are required for reactivation at the time of initial start-up and switching to Reserved SB.
However, if below mentioned prevention procedure is executed, reactivation request can be controlled.
Windows re-start prevention procedure
The request of reactivation can be controlled by recognizing Reserved SB to the PRIMEQUEST 2000 series in advance.
Execute the following procedures for all Windows partitions.
If this prevention procedure is executed, reactivation is not demanded, when switched to Reserved SB due to SB failure.
1.
Shut down the partition after completing Windows installation.
2.
One SB is removed from the partition by using MMB Web-UI. When multiple SBs are installed, any one out of them
can be removed.
3.
Add SB for Reserved SB to the partition.
For details, see “ Built in SB and IOU” of “3.4.1 Setting the partition configuration”.

5.3 Setting of sadump
The sadump setting is executed on the BIOS set-up menu.
Before the setting is executed, it is necessary to reserve the area of the damp device which becomes the collection
address of dump. When there is a system fault, the register information and memory contents are output to the dump
device. Due to this reason, the capacity of the device that performs dump output is determined, so as to match the memory
size. The required area is obtained by the estimation given below and it is reserved.
Amount of memory installed +512 MB
The dump device can use the disk and the disk partition. In case of dump device created for the disk partition, create the
disk partition when installing the operating system.
In case of setting the device on ETERNUS to dump device. It is necessary to execute UEFI driver setting in advance.
For the details of setting procedure see, PRIMEQUEST 1000/2000 Series SAN Boot Environment Configuration Manual

Setup of dump environment (Windows)
Windows OS provides memory dump function as standard. For obtaining the dump, it is necessary to secure the disc area
in advance.
For details regarding the setup of dump environment, see “11.4.3.Setup of dump environment (Windows)” of
PRIMEQUEST 2000 Series Administration Manual (C122-E175EN).
5.4.1
About memory dump file/paging file
Memory dump file stores the debug information when STOP error (Fatal system error) occurs in the system. Settings for
obtaining the memory dump are done after installing the operating system to be used in the operation or after installing the
application.
The paging file is created in the hard disk to temporarily secure the memory area which has not been used. Paging file is
also used at the time of creating the memory dump file. At the time of creating the memory dump file, entire memory dump
information is stored temporarily in the paging file.
For the details regarding the memory dump file and paging file, see “11.4.3.Setup of dump environment (Windows)” of
PRIMEQUEST 2000 Series Administration Manual (C122-E175EN).
5.5
Setup of dump environment (Linux)
In RHEL, the environment which can acquire the dump most reliably can be prepared by combining the kdump function
which is a standard function of the operating system and the sadump function of hardware.
88
CHAPTER 5 Work after Operating System installation
5.5 Setup of dump environment (Linux)
5.5.1
How to use sadump (Linux)
This section explains steps for sadump. Sadump allows you to store memory dump under the situation like below while
kdump, the standard Red Hat Linux function does not allows this.
OS panic or hang up before Kdump service starts
Error while Kdump is working
1. Preparation
Install the following two packages corresponded the kernel version in use .
kernel-debuginfo-common
kernel-debuginfo
2. Configuring UEFI
Read “5.3 Setting of sadump” to configure UEFI for sadump. Note the following points.
Set “RECYCLE” in Set up Manager to “<Enable>”. If it is not “<Enable>”, configuring dump devices is needed every
time after taking a memory dump by sadump.
Select “Create a dump device” in Dump device Manager, and set “Create mode” to “<Single>”.” <Multiple>” is not
supported.
3. Configuring OS
Kdump need to be set up beforehand to use sadump. After configuring Kdump, the additional configuration is needed as
follows.
Configuration not to reboot after panic
Set kernel parameter “kernel.panic” to 0 (default is 0). If not set, system reboot automatically after panic and the chance to
start sadump is missed. Configure /etc/sysctl.conf as follows.
kernel.panic=0
Configuration to stop system after Kdump
In /etc/kdump.conf, set “default” to “halt” or “shell”. If not set, system reboot automatically when Kdump fails and the chance
to start sadump is missed.
Configuration to start sadump
Set “blacklist kvm-intel” in /etc/kdump.conf. If not set, SMI is blocked and sadump cannot start.
Example of /etc/kdump.conf
ext4 LABEL=/dump
path /
core_collector cp --sparse=always
extra_bins /bin/cp
disk_timeout 60
default shell
blacklist kvm-intel
Configuration to start Kdump by NMI
As a procedure to start sadump, starting Kdump by NMI is needed at first. Configure /etc/sysctl.conf as follows.
kernel.unknown_nmi_panic=1
4. Start sadump and confirmation
Start sadump as follows.
1) Send NMI to start Kdump
89
CHAPTER 5 Work after Operating System installation

CHAPTER 6 Work after installation
6.2 NTP Configuration
6.2
NTP Configuration
This section describes the operation method in the PRIMEQUEST 2000 series, regarding the operation of time correction
wherein Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used.
NTP is the protocol which provides the method by which time information is exchanged between the computers of same
type. The time correction function references the correct time on another system at system startup. Then, it sets the time
and keeps it within the specified error range.
At that time, system with original time is called as NTP server and the reference system is called as NTP client. In the NTP
server, it is necessary to activate the NTP service, for responding to the request from the NTP client.
In case of the operation of time correction which is used in NTP, when the operating system is Windows, see “Appendix E
Specifications and setting of NTP server (Windows)”
All the windows given here are the display examples. Contents displayed according to system configuration are different.
6.2.1
Method of operating NTP in PRIMEQUEST 2000 series
This explains the method of time correction of each partition where NTP in the PRIMEQUEST 2000 series is used.
In the PRIMEQUEST 2000 series, there are two types of objects which set the time.
- MMB
- Each partition
For the details regarding the NTP client of MMB, see “6.2.2. Specification of NTP server”
Time of each partition is corrected by setting the NTP client of the operating system which is installed.
For the stable NTP operation, specify multiple (In case of RHEL, three servers or more) NTP servers from each NTP client.
Schematic diagram of operation when NTP server other than MMB is used is shown in “Figure 7.2 Operation diagram
when external NTP server is used (Case when 3 NTP servers are used).
Note
Match the stratum (Stratum) while using multiple NTP servers.
95
CHAPTER 6 Work after installation
6.2 NTP Configuration
FIGURE 6.2 Operation Diagram when External NTP Server is used (When three NTP servers are used)
Only one NTP server can be specified. In that case, when it is not possible to communicate with the NTP server which is
specified by the NTP client, since other synchronous object does not exist, NTP server is disabled. NTP client cannot do
the time correction according to NTP within the period in which communication with the NTP server is restored. As a result,
time is recorded with the system clock accuracy. Since there is an individual difference in the accuracy of the system clock,
when time correction according to NTP is not possible, time gap between the systems is enlarged, and problems might be
caused in the middleware or in the application.
Remark
NTP server 1~NTP server 3 are the NTP servers having high accuracy of time in internet or in intranet.
6.2.2
Setting NTP server
Other NTP server which is time synchronous is specified by using the NTP client function of the MMB.
Note
Time of MMB and time of partition side is controlled by the respective independent clocks. Clock of MMB does not repot
and adjust the partition clock. Since the time of MMB and time of partition, are necessary for following responses, keep the
MMB time and the partition time the same or at least close.
- At the time of comparing the MMB side log and the operating system side log in partition by the hard failure
- At the time of executing the system inspection or executing the security inspection
96
CHAPTER 6 Work after installation
6.3 Configuring DNS server
- When alarm occurs in the time maintenance battery of the partition side.
Execute any of the following ways to adjust the time.
- Set the time manually from the MMB Web-UI
- Set the time by using the NTP client function of the MMB
Remark
Set the time on Operation System if NTP is not used.

3. Select [Power Off] for the [Power Control] for the partition number of which power is to be cut off and click the [Apply]
button.
The power supply of the specified partition is cut off.
Remark
If the operating system supports ACPI and [Power Off] is selected, then the power is automatically cut off on shutting
down the operating system. However, even if the operating system supports ACPI, you may be unable to power off
the partition as long as an application that does not support it is running on the operating system. It depends on the
specifications of the operating system and the application. For details, see the manual of the operating system or the
application.
If the operating system is not compatible to ACPI, according to the power cut off operations, the power is cut off
without shutting down the operating system.
Therefore, due to the above-mentioned reasons, shut down the partition in the operating system

Appendix E Setting up the NTP Server (Windows)
E.1 Overview of NTP Client Settings
Appendix E Setting up the NTP Server
(Windows)
This appendix describes how to specify and set of an NTP server for a specific Windows operating system.
This appendix is not needed for Active Directory member servers.
Active Directory member servers automatically synchronize the system clock with the domain controller.
E.1 Overview of NTP Client Settings
This appendix describes procedures for settings synchronizing the system clock with an NTP server for
operating systems consisting of the following:
-
Windows Server 2008 R2
-
Windows Server 2012
-
Windows Server 2012 R2
Remark
In the PRIMEQUEST 2000 series, the system time of a partition is kept in the Home SB. Therefore, if the
Home SB of a partition is replaced during maintenance or switched by the reserved SB function, the
system time of the partition may become incorrect.
The system clock synchronizes with an NTP server once a week in the default configuration of the
Workgroup environment of Windows. Before Windows Server 2008, the system clock is synchronized at
system startup. However, in Windows Server 2008 R2 or later, it is not synchronized.
Use the following procedures to set the system to synchronize with the system clock.
FIGURE E.1 Settings for system clock synchronization
