Power Switch: This is the switch to power on devices connected to the power supply. The
power LED will light up to indicate power is supplied.
Note: The main power switch located at the back of the enclosure must be turned on first.
Reset Button: Not operational.
Buzzer Reset: Pressing the button stops the buzzer from making a sound. The buzzer will
make a sound when temperature inside the storage rack exceeds the temperature setting
on the Thermal Management card.
Power LED: Lights up when the power switch is turned on.

Temp LED: Lights up when temperature setting inside the storage rack exceeds the setting
on the thermal card.
Fan LED: Normally on when fan is operational. If an abnormal condition is detected, the
LED flashes.
HDD LED: Not operational.

Features:
Fan1 to Fan8 could be set either “ENABLE” or “DISABLE”. When all the fans are set on
“DISABLE”, the Fan LED will have no light on.
When Ambient temperature (or temperature inside the storage rack) is over the set
temperature, the LED will flash and the buzzer will sound.
POWER SWITCH
Each individual hard drive on the disk array has its own
power switch.
TURNING ON a Hard Drive
To turn on a hard drive, using a pointed object insert it on
the circular slot (D1 – D5) located on top of the power logo
and push it. The power and HDD access LED (D7 – D11) HD5
would light up (green color).
TURNING OFF a Hard Drive
To turn off a hard drive, using a pointed object insert it on
the circular slot (D1 – D5) located on top of the power logo
and push it. The power and HDD access LED (D7 – D11)
goes off.
J1 – Drive Activity LED
H – Activity LED for eSATA host port lights up when it is connected to a SATA controller
card.
D0, D1, D2, D3 & D4 - Activity LEDs for port 1, 2, 3, & 4 light up when a drive is connected
and blinks when there’s drive activity.

Two Options for Setting RAID on the 5-port HPM-XA
(only select one option)
I.
Using the JMicron HW RAID Manager utility program
For Windows users, install the JMicron HW RAID Manager located on the SATA
Controller CD. In the CD, go to RAID utilities > JMB393. This manager can be use to
create and monitor the status of the RAID volume.
SATA port 3
Error and drive activity
LED jumper block (J1, J3)
SATA port 2
Use the default factory RAID jumper setting when using the JMicron HW RAID
Manager.
J4 – RAID Setting Jumper Block
II.
BZS – Error buzzer function
SET – RAID mode setting
EZ – Automatic rebuilding to
M2 – RAID mode 2
M1 – RAID mode 1
M0 – RAID mode 0
Using the onboard RAID setting jumper block
(Complete the 7 steps below)
Recommended to be used on operating system without JMicron HW RAID Manager
support like Linux, Mac & Solaris. Windows users can also used the procedure below.
spare drive
1.
Set the J4 RAID setting jumper block as shown below.
(ignore EZ pins, EZ is DISABLED)
2.
Turn on the system power where the HPM is connected for at least 5 seconds for
hardware initialization. This step acts as a reset.
Power off the system power.
On the J4 RAID setting jumper block, change (M0~M2) jumper setting to the desired
RAID mode using the diagram on the next page as reference.

Error buzzer function is DISABLED (BZS)
RAID mode setting modification is DISABLED
(SET)
Auto-rebuilding to spare drive is ENABLED
(EZ)
Individual drive mode is ENABLED (M0~M2)
Note: When the default factory RAID setting is used, independent drive configuration
is supported only when connecting to controllers with Silicon Image Sil3124, Sil3132
chip set or controllers that are Port Multiplier (PM) compatible.

All settings on the diagram shows

RAID mode setting modification is ENAABLED (SET)

Error buzzer function is DISABLED (BZS)
B. Or to the diagram below where buzzer is ENABLED.
Note: On the setting where buzzer is ENABLED, there is NO jumper on SET.
RAID Setting Notes:
When 2 drives are connected to the HPM-XA, and J4 is
set to this setting, the 2 drives will be configured as a
2-drive RAID1 array.
When 4 drives are connected to the HPM-XA, the 4
drives will be configured as a 4-drive RAID10 array.
Clone’s action is similar to RAID1. However, all of the
hard drives will be mirrored. Clone mode is useful
especially when users like to copy data from a source
hard drive to the drives connected to the HPM-XA.
Note: Steps 1 ~ 4 needs to performed each time the raid mode is modified.

Power on the system power.
Verify if the RAID array is detected by the system
a. If the 5-port HPM-XA is connected to the motherboard onboard SATA, on the
CMOS setup utility, the raid array will display as “Addonics H/W RAID5” if setup
as a RAID5 array.
b. If the 5-port HPM-XA is connected to an eSATA host controller card, on the RAID
BIOS, the raid array will display as “Addonics H/W RAID0” if setup as a RAID0
array.
c. If booted into Windows, in Disk Drives under Device Manager, the raid array will
display as “Addonics H/W LARGE” if setup as a RAID0 array.
Once raid array is verified, turn off the system then you MUST set back the RAID
jumper setting to either:
A. Default setting
Notes on RAID Auto rebuild
(Diagram shows default factory RAID jumper setting)
In reference to the diagram, auto-rebuilding is
ENABLED (EZ)
When EZ mode is ENABLED, the degraded RAID
group will start rebuilding automatically when you
install a good drive to replace the failed drive.
Cable Connections
For Model: RR2035RPHES & RR2035AXHES
1. Connect one end of the eSATA cable to the eSATA port on the RAID Rack and the
other end to the eSATA port on your system.
For Model: RR2035RPHML, RR2035AXHML
1. Attach one end of the infiniband cable to the multilane port on the RAID Rack and the
other end to the multilane port on your system.
