HP Smart Array P600 Controller Installation Overview
HP Smart Array P600 Controller Important safety information Installation Overview Kit contents All controller kits contain an installation overview poster (this document), a Documentation CD, and a controller board. Each controller kit also contains one of the following software CD kits: • SmartStart CD kit (contains device drivers, support software and utilities, Server Diagnostics, Management Agents, and documentation for SmartStart and HP Systems Insight Manager) • Support Software CD kit (contains device drivers, the Array Configuration Utility, and the ROM Update Utility) Second edition (July 2005) Part number 384228-002 Installing the controller in an unconfigured HP ProLiant server New HP ProLiant server models self-configure when they are powered up for the first time. For more information about the autoconfiguration process, refer to the server-specific setup and installation guide or the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility User Guide. These guides are available on the server Documentation CD. IMPORTANT: Do not power up the server until the hardware configuration is satisfactory, as described in the procedure given in this section. To install the controller in an unconfigured server: 1. Install the controller hardware. 2. If necessary, install physical drives. The number of drives in the server determines the RAID level that is autoconfigured when the server is powered up (next step). For details, refer to the server-specific setup and installation guide or the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility User Guide. 3. Power up the server. The autoconfiguration process runs. 4. Update the system firmware. 5. Update the controller firmware. 6. Install the operating system and device drivers. Instructions are provided with the CD that is supplied in the controller kit. Installing the controller in an HP Integrity server NOTE: The SmartStart CD does not provide support for HP Integrity servers. Use the Smart Setup media instead. Before installing the controller, refer to the support matrix on the HP website http://www.hp.com/products1/serverconnectivity to confirm that the server and operating system support the controller. To install the controller: 1. Power down the server. 2. Install the controller hardware. 3. If necessary, install additional physical drives. The number of drives in the server determines the RAID level that is autoconfigured when the server is powered up (next step). 4. Power up the server. 5. Update the controller firmware. When the firmware update process is complete, the server reboots and runs through a POST procedure. This POST procedure halts briefly during controller initialization and prompts you to open ORCA. 6. The server is now ready to use. If you want to create additional logical drives, you may now do so. Open ORCA: — If using a headless console, press the Esc+8 key combination. — Otherwise, press the F8 key. Installing the controller in a previously configured HP ProLiant server 1. Back up any data on the system. 2. Update the server firmware. 3. If you want the new controller to be the boot device, install the device drivers. Otherwise, continue with step 4. 4. Install the controller hardware. 5. Set the controller order. 6. 7. Configure the logical boot drive, and then exit from ORCA. If the server is using Linux®, controller installation is complete. When the server is next rebooted, the operating system detects the controller hardware and automatically loads the required driver. If the server is using Microsoft® Windows®, continue as follows: 1. Load the controller driver from EBSU on the Smart Setup media. (To load the driver, select Load OEM Boot Drivers at the appropriate point in EBSU. For more information about Smart Setup, refer to the HP Smart Setup Guide on the Smart Setup media.) Update the controller firmware. 2. Run Express Setup. 7. If the controller will not be the boot device, install the device drivers. Otherwise, continue with step 8. 3. 8. Update the Management Agents if new versions are available. When you have finished installing the operating system as directed during the Express Setup procedure, remove the operating system CD and insert the Smart Setup media. 4. Install the Integrity Support Pack. The server is now ready to use. If you want to create additional logical drives, you may now do so. Controller installation is complete. The latest firmware, drivers, utilities, software, and documentation for HP Integrity servers are available on the support page of the HP website http://www.hp.com/support/itaniumservers Additional information If you cannot find the information that you need in this overview, there are several other resources that you can use to get more detailed information: • The controller user guide on the Documentation CD • The HP website http://www.hp.com • Your nearest HP authorized reseller (for the locations and telephone numbers of these resellers, refer to the HP website) • HP technical support: — In the United States and Canada, call 1-800-HP-INVENT (1-800-474-6836). — In other countries, refer to the HP website for technical support information.
