LSICVM01 Kit Quick Installation Guide
Thank you for purchasing the Avago Technologies CacheVault™ Module 01 (LSICVM01) Kit. Before you install the
LSICVM01 kit, please take a few minutes to read this guide. This guide describes the CacheVault Module Kit LSICVM01,
which contains a MegaRAID® CacheVault Flash Module 02 (CVFM02), a MegaRAID CacheVault Power Module 02
(CVPM02), a clip, and a cable, and explains how to install these components.
The CVFM02 module is a USB flash module that provides cache offload capability to protect cached data in case of
host power loss or server failure. The remote CVPM02 module is a super-capacitor pack that provides the power to
off-load cached data from the DRAM to the nonvolatile FLASH memory on the CVFM02 module if a power failure or
outage occurs. Cached data is restored from the CVFM module to DRAM the next time the RAID controller is powered.
Cached data can then be written to the storage devices.
To install the kit, you attach the CVFM02 module directly to a RAID controller, insert the CVPM02 module into the clip
on a BBU-BRACKET-05 remote mount board (sold separately), and then connect the CVFM02 module by cable to the
remote CVPM02 module. Next, install the RAID controller and the remote mount board in PCI Express® (PCIe®) slots in
the system.
The following MegaRAID SAS RAID controllers support the LSICVM01 kit:

MegaRAID SAS 9266-4i
MegaRAID SAS 9266-8i
MegaRAID SAS 9271-4i

NOTE
This guide documents installation of the CacheVault modules using
the MegaRAID SAS 9266-8i RAID controller in Installing the LSICVM01
Kit on page 5. You can install the CacheVault modules the same way on
the MegaRAID SAS 9266-4i, 9271-4i, 9271-8i, and 9271-8iCC RAID
controllers.
For more information about topics covered in this guide, refer to the documents on the MegaRAID Universal Software
Suite CD.

Installing the LSICVM01 Kit
This section describes how to install the CVFM02 module and the CVPM02 module, connect the modules, and then
insert the RAID controller and the remote mount board into PCIe slots on the motherboard.
When you remove the CacheVault modules from their antistatic bags, inspect them for damage. Unpack the modules
in a static-free environment. If a module appears to be damaged, or if the MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD is
missing, contact your place of purchase.
ATTENTION
Back up your data before you change your system configuration, or
you could lose data.
CAUTION
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage the CVFM02 module and the
MegaRAID controller. Make sure that you install the CVFM02 module
at an ESD-safe workstation that meets the requirements of EIA-625 –
“Requirements For Handling Electrostatic Discharge Sensitive
Devices.” When you install the CVFM02 module, follow the
ESD-recommended practices in the latest revision of IPC-A-610.
Perform the following tasks to attach the CVFM02 module directly to your RAID controller and then by cable to the
CVPM02 module on a remote mount board.
