Product Redundancy

The NAS 1000s is specifically designed to perform file serving tasks for networks, using industry standard components to ensure reliability.

Other industry standard features, such as redundant array of independent drives (RAID) and remote manageability, further enhance the overall dependability of the NAS 1000s.

To ensure redundancy and reliability, the hard drives installed in the NAS 1000s are configured so that a single drive failure will not cause data loss or system failure. The NAS 1000s is configured with dual boot capibility. When powered on, the NAS

1000s can boot using a primary OS or a secondary recovery OS.

The primary OS resides on drive 0 and is mirrored on drive 1 while the secondary OS resides on drive 2 and is mirrored on drive 3. If the primary OS becomes corrupted and un-bootable, the secondary OS is available for data backup prior to using the

Quick Restore DVD to restore the system to the factory default state.

The data volume is configured as a RAID 5 volume across all four drives. This ensures redundancy in the event of a drive failure and the data volume is accessible by both the primary OS and secondary OS.

chap1.fm Page 20 Thursday, May 15, 2003 4:33 PM

Dependencies and Requirements

Specific conditions must be met in order for the NAS 1000s to operate.

Storage Requirements

To protect against data loss from hard drive failure, configure storage with fault tolerance in mind. HP recommends adhering to

RAID5 configurations.

IP Networking and Setup Requirements

The following are IP networking and setup requirements needed for a NAS 1000s device:

■ Windows-based PC running Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5

(or later) on the same network segment as the NAS 1000s; this will be used to set up and administer the NAS device.

Additional Ethernet connection ports to client subnets

(depending on network options ordered).

Deploying the NAS 1000s on the Network

The default shipping configuration contains two 10/100/1000 integrated network interface controller (NIC) ports for client data access. These data ports also allow access to the Web user interface (WebUI) that accompanies the product. Most management and administrative procedures can be accomplished via the WebUI.

Setup and Configuration Overview

Setting up systems is a well-defined process. This section is intended as an overview of the process, not a detailed list of step-by-step instructions. Step-by-step procedures are documented in the administration guide. Some of the steps are driven by wizards within the WebUI. In either type of setup, it is important to read all of the supplied documentation before starting. Relevant documents include:

HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s Administration Guide

HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s Rack Installation Instructions

HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s Release Notes (if required, this document will be available via www.hp.com

)

Configuring the NAS 1000s

The following describes how to configure the NAS 1000s.

1. Configure the NAS device using Chapter 2 of this guide.

2. This is a recommended step. Place the NAS device into an

Active Directory or Windows NT 4.0 domain for ease of manageability.

3. Configure the NAS 1000s device using Chapter 3 of this guide.

4. Using Logical Disk Manager (LDM), assign drive letters or mount points, and format the data drives. See the LDM online help for full details on this procedure.

5. This is an optional step. Enable protocols such as NFS sharing, NCP, and/or AppleTalk. See the administration guide for this procedure in detail.

6. This is an optional step. Create shares corresponding to the protocols mentioned in the previous steps. Grant access rights to the shares.

7. Read the remaining sections of the administration guide.

Storage Management Overview

This section provides an overview of the components that make up the NAS storage structure. A complete discussion of the components and their relationships is available in the administration guide.

Caution: This section on storage management and Windows

LDM is required reading material for the NAS administrator.

This section develops the concepts and requirements that serve as the basis for successfully using an HP StorageWorks

NAS device. Failure to read this section and the appropriate sections on storage management in the administration guide may lead to data loss or file corruption.

Storage Management Elements

Storage is broken up into five major divisions:

■ Logical storage elements

Persistent Storage Manager Elements

File system elements

File sharing elements

Each of these elements is composed of the previous level’s elements.

Logical Storage Elements

The NAS 1000s utilizes the Microsoft Logical Disk Manager

(LDM) for managing the various types of disk presented to the file system. Logical Disk Manager has two types of disk presentations: basic disk and dynamic disk. Each of these types of disk has special features that enable different types of management. The NAS 1000s uses a dynamic RAID5 volume to ensure maximum data protection. This volume can then be assigned a drive letter or mount point, formatted, and the presented to the operating system for use.

chap1.fm Page 24 Thursday, May 15, 2003 4:33 PM

Persistent Storage Management Elements

Persistent Storage Manager lets the administrator make replicas of disks, called snapshots. Snapshots enable the creation of multipurpose logical replicas of production data without having to physically copy the data. They can be used to immediately recover a lost file or directory, to test a new application with realistic data without affecting the “real” data, and to serve as a source of data for backups. Snapshots are a temporary backup of the data and are not meant to be permanent.

Snapshots use existing space from the volume, partition, or logical drive to maintain the data required to present the original data. This space is termed the cache file. By default the cache files consumes 10 percent of the available space of a logical storage element. Snapshots can be read only, read-write or always keep, and if they are shared, users can access a snapshot and edit the data. If snapshots are shared with write access enabled, a second snapshot of the original volume should be created. There is no backup of the original snapshot unless a second snapshot of the volume is taken.

Snapshot Facts

Snapshots are created on a per volume, partition, or logical drive basis.

Snapshots can be read-only, read-write or always keep.

Snapshots are mounted as a mount point on the root of the volume, partition or logical drive.

Snapshots can be shared in the same manner as any other folder, drive or mount point.

Snapshots are meant to be temporary in nature.

Snapshots are automatically deleted if disk space becomes critical and they are not set to always keep.

Persistent Storage Manager only writes to the cache file on the first change of the underlying data.

Full documentation of Persistent Storage Manager may be found in the administration guide.

chap1.fm Page 25 Thursday, May 15, 2003 4:33 PM

File System Elements

File system elements are composed of the folders and subfolders that are created under each logical storage element (partitions, logical disks, and volumes). Folders are used to further subdivide the available file system providing another level of granularity for management of the information space. Each of these folders can contain separate permissions and share names that can be used for network access. Folders can be created for individual users, groups, projects, etc. Refer to the administration guide for more details on file system elements.

File-Sharing Elements

The NAS 1000s supports several file-sharing protocols, including

CIFS, NFS, FTP, HTTP, NCP, and AppleTalk. On each folder or logical storage element, different file-sharing protocols can be enabled using specific network names for access across a network to a variety of clients. Permissions can then be granted to those shares based on users or groups of users in each of the file sharing protocols. Refer to the administration guide for more details on file system elements.

Hot-Plug Hard Drive

4

This chapter provides information about replacing the hot-pluggable hard drives of the HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s.

Important Guidelines for Replacing

Hot-Pluggable Hard Drives

Follow these guidelines when replacing drives configured for fault tolerance on an HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s:

■ Never remove more than one drive at a time.

When a drive is replaced, the controller uses data from the other drives in the array to reconstruct data on the replacement drive. If more than one drive is removed, a complete data set is not available to reconstruct data on the replacement drives and permanent data loss can occur.

Never remove a drive while another drive is being rebuilt.

A replaced drive is rebuilt from data stored on the other drives.

If a drive is replaced while the system is Off, it may be necessary to rebuild the replaced drive. Follow the instructions in the “

Replacing a Failed Hard Drive

” section of this guide or the instructions outlined in the system’s reference guide.

A

Federal Communications Commission Notice

Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and Regulations has established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an interference-free radio frequency spectrum.

Many electronic devices, including computers, generate RF energy incidental to their intended function and are, therefore, covered by these rules. These rules place computers and related peripheral devices into two classes, A and B, depending upon their intended installation. Class A devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a business or commercial environment. Class B devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a residential environment (personal computers, for example). The FCC requires devices in both classes to bear a label indicating the interference potential of the device as well as additional operating instructions for the user.

The rating label on the device shows which class (A or B) the equipment falls into. Class B devices have an FCC logo or FCC

ID on the label. Class A devices do not have an FCC logo or FCC

ID on the label. Once the class of the device is determined, refer to the following corresponding statement.

Class A Equipment

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC

Discharge

B

To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.

To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:

■ Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.

Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.

Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.

Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.

Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.

NAS 1000s Quick Start Guide

47

Dexter_5.5x8.5_book.book Page 48 Wednesday, May 14, 2003 9:45 AM

Grounding Methods

There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:

Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ± 10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper grounding, wear the strap snug against the skin.

Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.

Use conductive field service tools.

Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.

If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller install the part.
