housed in a cooling cage, located centrally within the enclosure, between the drive bays and the motherboard, as shown in Fig. 07. This
allows maximum airflow through the system and minimizes noise.
LaCie 12big Rack Storage Server
User Manual
System Overview
page 14
Fig. 14 - Drive Carrier Module
Fig. 13 - Cooling Fan Module
Airflow is from front to rear, with cooling air being drawn across the
drives, through the fans and pressurizing the rear of the enclosure.
The pressurized rear allows the PSU to draw the air that it requires,
and perforations at the rear of the chassis allow cooling airflow over
the processor heatsinks, memory, motherboard and PCI cards.
Back pressure created by rack doors and obstacles is not to exceed
5 pascals (0.5mm water gauge).
The cooling system provides sufficient airflow to make sure that drive
maximum temperatures are not exceeded when the enclosure is at
35°C ambient (sea level) and one fan has failed.
The cooling cage contains ten individual high speed single rotor
axial fans, individually connected to and interfacing with the EM
Card. This interface provides power and speed control to the fans
and returns tachometer output from each fan.
2.10.1. Drive Status Indicator
Disk drive status is monitored by green and amber LEDs mounted
on the front of each drive carrier module, under GEM control (see
Fig. 15). Refer to section 4.4.3. Drive Carrier LEDs for a description
of the LED states.
The behavior of these LEDs can be overridden by the customer via
SES.
2.10.2. Anti-Tamper Locks
Anti-tamper locks are fitted in the drive carrier handles (Fig. 15)
and are accessed through the small cutout in the latch section of
the handle. These are provided to disable the normal ‘pinch’ latch
action of the carrier handle.
2.10.Drive Carrier Module
The drive darrier module comprises a hard disk mounted in a carrier. Each drive bay houses a single low profile 1.0 inch high, 3.5
inch form factor disk drive in its carrier. The carrier has mounting
locations for SAS/SATA drives.
Each disk drive is enclosed in a sheet steel carrier which provides
excellent thermal conduction, radio frequency and electro-magnetic
induction protection and affords the drive physical protection.
The front cap features an ergonomic handle which provides the following functions:
✦✦ Camming of carrier into and out of drive bays.
✦✦ Positive ‘spring loading’ of the drive/backplane connector.
Fig. 15 - Anti-tamper Lock
2.10.3. Mixed Drive Types
SAS and SATA drives may be mixed within an enclosure but drives
of a similar type and rotation speed should be mounted within the
same column of the enclosure.
2.10.4. Dummy Drive Carrier Modules
Dummy drive carrier modules are provided for fitting in all unused
drive bays. They are designed as integral drive module front caps
with handles and must be fitted to all unused drive bays to maintain
a balanced airflow.

All BMC commands are allowed, including
configuration settings. An Administrator can
even execute configuration commands that
will disable the channel that the Administrator
is working on.

All BMC commands are allowed, except for
configuration settings which can change the
behavior of the out-of-band interfaces. For
example, Operator privilege does not allow
the capability to disable individual channels
or change user access privileges.
User
Only “basic” commands are allowed. These
are primarily commands that read data and
retrieve status. Forbidden commands include
those that can be used to alter BMC configuration, write data to the management controllers, or perform system actions such as resets,
power on/off, and watchdog activation.

✦✦Enabled
The hardware prefetcher looks at streams of data. The
hardware prefetcher assumes that if a line A and A+1

data is prefetched into L2 from external memory. Disabling
of the hardware prefetcher may impact processor performance. Default should be enabled. Optionally for DP/
MP servers, the default may be set based on performance
results observed during platform validation and testing
with standard workloads.
For UP platforms, leave it enabled. For DP/MP servers, it
may use to tune performance
to the specific application.
When enabled the Adjacent Cache Line Prefetcher fetches
both cache lines that comprise a cache line pair (128
bytes) when it determines required data is not currently
in its cache. When the Adjacent Cache Line Prefetcher is
disabled, the processor will only fetch the cache line (64
bytes) that contains the data currently required by the processor. Note: Single processor platforms should enable it.
It is recommended that server platforms disable it. Optionally for DP/MP servers, the default may be set based on
performance results observed during platform validation
and testing with standard workloads.
For UP platforms, leave it enabled. For DP/MP servers, it
may use to tune performance
to the specific application.

7.Troubleshooting and Problem Solving
7.1. Overview
7.2. Start-Up Problems
The 12big Rack Storage Server includes an Enclosure Services Processor and associated monitoring and control logic to enable it to
diagnose problems within the EM Card, Ops Panel, CPU(s) and
DIMM(s).
7.2.1. Faulty Power Cords
The sensors for power and cooling conditions are housed within the
power supples and cooling fans. There is independent monitoring
for each unit.
7.1.1. Continuous Operation During
Replacement
If a disk unit fails, it can normally be replaced without interrupting
the use of the system.
1. Make sure that the power source to the enclosure is switched
on.
2. Check that all power cords are inserted into PSUs. The PSU
LEDs (see 4.4.2. Power Supply Unit LEDs) should flash green
when an active power cord is inserted (or be constant green if
the enclosure has been powered on).
Contact LaCie if any of the following are true:
✦✦ Cords are missing or damaged.
✦✦ Plugs are incorrect.
✦✦ Cords are too short.
If an enclosure contains two Power Supply Units, either of them can
maintain power to the subsystem while the other is replaced.
7.2.2. Alarm Sounds On Power Up
7.1.2. Replacing Modules
Refer to Section 7.3. Audible Alarm.
Make sure that you have obtained a replacement module of the
same type before removing any faulty module. Refer to Chapter 8
for instructions on how to replace modules.
7.2.3. The Motherboard Doesn’t Recognize
the Drives
CAUTION: If the 12big Rack Storage Server is powered up and you
remove any module, its replacement must be inserted immediately.
If the subsystem is used with modules or module blanks missing
for more than a few minutes, the enclosure can overheat, causing
power failure and data loss. Such use will invalidate the warranty.
✦✦ Replace a faulty drive with a drive of the same type and equal
or greater capacity.
✦✦ All drive bays must be fitted with a drive carrier module in
order to maintain a balanced air flow.
✦✦ All the supplied plug-in power supply units, electronics modules and blank modules must be in place for the air to flow
correctly around the cabinet.
CAUTION: Observe all conventional ESD precautions when handling 12big Rack Storage Server modules and components. Avoid
contact with backplane components and module connectors, etc.
IMPORTANT INFO: The top cover of the enclosure covers a service area which should be accessed by service personnel only. When
the cover is replaced it MUST be secured by turning the lock mechanism to the “locked” position.
1. Check that the LEDs on all installed drive carrier modules are
illuminated (amber). Note that the drive LEDs will not be lit during drive spinup.
2. Check that all drive carrier modules have been correctly installed.
3. Check the SAS interconnect cables between the HBA and the
EM Card.
7.3. Audible Alarm
The chassis audible alarm will sound if the enclosure requires attention. It can be muted by pressing the ID LED button on the Ops
Panel (see section 4.4.1. Ops Panel LEDs and Switches) and can be
reinstated through the firmware.

7.4. LED/Audible Alarm Interpretation
The following tables summarize the various states of the LEDs and audible alarm and their meaning. Some states are duplicated in this section to
make it easier to search for the cause of a problem.
NOTE: No audible alarm will sound if the enclosure has been muted.
The audible alarm states in the following tables are defined as:
✦✦ Intermittent beep – A 0.5 second beep every 32 seconds.
✦✦ Short beep – A 0.5 second beep every 8 seconds.
✦✦ Long beep – A 1.5 second beep every 2 seconds.
✦✦ Constant – The audible alarm is on constantly.
The LED states in the following tables are defined as:
✦✦ Slow blink – The LED is on for 0.5 seconds in every 4 seconds.
✦✦ Fast blink – The LED is on for 0.5 seconds in every 1 second.
✦✦ Constant – The LED is on constantly (no blinking).

10. Upgrading the Firmware
10.1.Important Notes
Upgrading the firmware consists of two steps, to be performed in
this order:
✦✦ Upgrading the x86 subsystem.
✦✦ Upgrading the GEM subsystem.
NOTE: It is important to note that the x86 subsystem upgrade process outlined in this chapter will not work unless the x86 subsystem
firmware has first been upgraded using the update CD in the GEM
USM 1.0 (i.e. BR2) package. This is because the system will not have
HPM upgrade capability prior to application of the USM 1.0/BR2
x86 motherboard update.
NOTE: Upgrades must be performed from the previous GEM USM
release package. If an upgrade is required from an earlier GEM
package, please contact your FAE who will provide you an assessment of whether a direct transition can be made, or whether intermediate upgrades will also be required.
2. Run the following command at the Linux prompt from the x86
OS:
ipmitool -z 250 hpm upgrade 0956373-XX_Butser2_Motherboard_XX.hpm all activate
where the ‘XX’ symbols represent version numbers.
Once the update process has completed, there will be an automatic reboot of the x86 processor to activate the updates.
3. Once the x86 has rebooted, run the following command:
ipmitool hpm check
4. Verify that the active firmware component versions match those
in the release notes.
10.2.1. Upgrade Files
The upgrade files specified in this section can be found in the motherboard sub-folder in this package, which contains a file of the form:
0956373-XX_Butser2_Motherboard_XX.hpm – HPM upgrade file
containing BIOS, FPGA and BMC updates.
10.2.2. Optimized IPMITool
10.2.12big Rack Storage Server x86
Upgrade Procedure
NOTE: It is assumed that the native OS running on the 12big Storage Server is a Linux variant. If an alternative OS is used, such as a
variant of MS Windows, a port of the optimized version of IPMITool
described in section 10.2.2. Optimized IPMITool is required. At this
stage Xyratex is unable to provide ports for alternative OSs.
NOTE: To improve IPMI performance during the upgrade, it is recommended that all user IPMI daemons are suspended.
This procedure will upgrade the BIOS / FPGA and BMC firmware.
1. Acquire the optimized version of IPMITool indicated by section
10.2.2. Optimized IPMITool.
NOTE: The use of any other version of IPMITool will result in an exceptionally long update duration (in the order of 2 hours as opposed
to approximately 20 minutes with the optimized tool).
An optimized version of IPMITool v1.8.11 is required to update the
BIOS, FPGA and BMC firmware.
This optimized variant has only been tested on SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server 11 – 64 bit, but it should build and run correctly on all Linux
variants normally supported by IPMITool, as long as the Open IPMI
drivers and libraries are installed.
This optimized version is available from the IPMITool CVS code repository. It is currently recommended to download the latest code,
create a patch against v1.8.11 (as detailed below), and distribute
this patch throughout your company.
LaCie will provide notifications for any future enhancements to IPMITool that are required by the 12big Storage Server; a request has
been made to the IPMITool project administrators to allow the correct file revisions to be extracted via tags in the future.
1. Download IPMITool v1.8.11 using wget:
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/
project/ipmitool/ipmitool/1.8.11/ipmitool-1.8.11.tar.gz?use_mirror=cdnetworksus-1
2. Decompress the IPMITool archive:
LaCie 12big Rack Storage Server
User Manual
tar zxvf ipmitool-1.8.11.tar.gz
3. Get the latest development version of IPMITool from the CVS
sourceforge server:
cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]
sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ipmitool
login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]
sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ipmitool
export -r HEAD ipmitool
4. Create patch file:
diff -Nur ipmitool-1.8.11 ipmitool > ipmitool.patch
5. Apply the patch:
patch -Np1 -d ipmitool-1.8.11 < ipmitool.
patch
6. If the Bootstrap file is not executable, make it executable:
chmod u+x Bootstrap
7. Build the patched IPMITool:
