installations on the GS80, GS160, and GS320 platform.
KZPDC Product Components
Controller Firmware Support
Smart Array 5300A controller firmware version 3.40 is available as an update for
the KZPDC controller. Note that the KZPDC option kit presently ships with
version 2.94 firmware.
Controller firmware v3.40 is a recommended update for KZPDC controller
installations on all supported Alpha system platforms under OpenVMS or Tru64
UNIX.
Release Notes – Smart Array 5300A Backplane RAID Controllers 1
The v3.40 firmware image may be obtained from the Smart Array 5300A product
web site or on the V6.6 Alpha Firmware CD in the OPTIONS subdirectory. Two
examples of the controller firmware update command syntax are presented below.
Both examples employ the Loadable Firmware Utility (LFU) function of the
Alpha SRM console.
The first example will update controller instance PYA0 with the v3.40 image after
booting the V6.6 Alpha Firmware CD in CD-ROM device DQA0 on any
supported Alpha system:
UPD> update pya0 -p iso9660:[OPTIONS]kzpdc340.sys/dqa0
The second example employs the firmware image available on the Smart Array
5300A web site and assumes that the update media is a floppy disk in device
DVA0. After unpacking the .zip archive of the v3.40 firmware image place the file
onto a MS-DOS (FAT) formatted floppy disk. Place the disk into your Alpha
system floppy drive and execute the following command after entering the LFU.
Note that it is required to specify the .bin file extension of the firmware image.
The example updates KZPDC controller instance PYC0.
UPD> update pyc0 -p fat:kzpdc340.bin/dva0
Alpha System Firmware Support
It is recommended that all Alpha system environments hosting the KZPDC
product be updated using SRM firmware from the V6.6 (or later) Alpha Firmware
CD release. The V6.6 release firmware for Alpha systems is downloadable from
the following locations:
http://www.itrc.hp.com
http://ftp.digital.com/pub/DEC/Alpha/firmware/
Operating System Support
Smart Array 5300A controllers may be configured for operation under Tru64
UNIX version 5.1A or version 5.1B. OpenVMS support is available in versions
7.3-1 and 7.3-2 of the operating system. The product may be employed either as
the system boot controller or as a data only array controller in all supported OS

•
See the ES47, ES80, and GS1280 platform specific section of this document
for considerations in setting the console environment variable
‘HEAP_EXPAND’ on those platforms.
Release Notes – Smart Array 5300A Backplane RAID Controllers 11
Tru64 UNIX Issues and Restrictions
•
Smart Array 5300A volumes are not supported as shared storage devices in
TruCluster environments.
OpenVMS Issues and Restrictions
•
Prior restrictions as noted in the Smart Array 5300A Product Release Notes on
the use of KZPDC logical volumes in Volume Shadowing environments are
removed. Users should consult the Volume Shadowing documentation
accompanying their specific OpenVMS release for guidance in configuring
this feature.
•
Smart Array 5300A volumes are not supported as shared storage devices in
OpenVMS Cluster environments.
•
KZPDC controller support under OpenVMS on the GS80, GS160, and GS320
system platform is available beginning with version 7.3-2 of the operating
system. KZPDC controller support is not available under OpenVMS version
7.3-1 on GS80, GS160, and GS320 systems. Consult the platform specific
section of these release notes for more information.
Runtime Utility Issues and Restrictions
The following items are known issues with the online utilities provided with Smart
Array 5300A controllers.
•
Users are referred to the cautionary advice elsewhere in this document
concerning compatibility of the B0105 ACUXE kit with the version 3.xx
OpenVMS Management Agents kit.
•
Resizing (dragging the border of) the Netscape "HP Array Configuration
Utility XE" window, causes the ACU-XE session to end. A new session of
ACU-XE will have to be started. This issue will be fixed in a future release of
Netscape for Tru64 UNIX.
•
The GIF shown for an Array with a degraded Logical volume is the same as a
GIF for an Array with a failed Logical volume.
•
In some Tru64 UNIX systems with large configurations and large numbers of
SA5300 logical drives, starting up or exiting the ACU-XE utility might take
an extra long time (up to 20 minutes.) The user might get an impression that
12 Release Notes – Smart Array 5300A Backplane RAID Controllers
the utility is “hung” since no indications of what is actually happening are
present.
To check if the utility is still in startup or shutdown mode, you can put your
cursor in the bar at the top of your window. If the utility is still active, then the
cursor will change to an hour glass. This problem will be corrected in a future
release of the ACU-XE utility.
•
With cpqim310 installed, if you try to resize the windows between the disks
(middle pane) and the detailed info (right pane), the data goes away and both
panes turn dark brown/grey. A Netscape reload brings the data back. This
issue will be fixed in a future release of Netscape for the Tru64 UNIX.
•
Critical errors on the Smart Array 5300A controllers are accompanied by red
status messages within the Array Configuration Utility. The last statement in
each of these messages, "For more information, run the Array Diagnostics
Utility.", should be disregarded. Please use Compaq Analyze to obtain further
information about the reported errors.
•
When a condition occurs, such as a hardware fault, there may be data that
needs to be flushed from cache.To perform the actual cache flush, run the
BIOS from the SRM console on the affected controller.
Firmware Issues and Restrictions
•
The maximum possible number of logical drives that can be configured on a
Smart Array 5300A controller is thirty two.
•
Logical volume capacity extension is not supported.
•
The maximum logical volume size supported by the firmware is 2 Terabytes.
•
If a Hot Spare has replaced a failed physical drive within a redundant array,
the ACU-XE may show a logical volume having another volume below with
"???" as the spare capacity. Replacing the failed drive will cause the array to
return to the original configuration.
•
In the event of a SCSI bus failure, all logical devices on this bus might become
failed. There is a way these devices can be made available to the user (data
integrity cannot be guaranteed, however). You have to shutdown your Alpha
Server and run BIOS on the controller housing these devices, i.e:
>>run bios pya0
Release Notes – Smart Array 5300A Backplane RAID Controllers 13
You will be presented with a choice of either recovering (making optimal)
these devices or leaving them in the failed state. There is no default option
under this scenario, and mandatory ‘user intervention’ is required.
Storage Enclosure Issues and Restrictions
•
Users are advised to follow the power sequencing rules below to avoid
possible array volume state changes affecting the availability of user data:
When removing power to a storage enclosure attached to a Smart Array
controller, first remove power to the host system, followed by powering off
the storage enclosure.
When powering a system on, ensure all storage enclosures attached to a Smart
Array controller first receive power before applying power to the host system.
•
The BA610-6D internal disk cages are only supported with Nile logic cards
P/N 3R-A1629-AA/010615-001 of rev. 0B. Cards with P/N 3R-A1629AA/010615-001 of rev. 0A are not supported with Smart Array 5300A
controllers. Customers who own BA610-6D modules with logic cards of P/N
3R-A1629-AA/010615-001 of rev. 0A and want to take advantage of internal
RAID must contact HP Field Service to have their 3R-A1629-AA/010615-001
rev. 0A cards replaced.
•
When configuring a Smart Array 5300A controller attached to a storage
enclosure configured with a dual bus I/O module, each of the enclosure’s SCSI
bus segments may be attached to a Smart Array controller instance.
Connecting a controller or adapter other than another Smart Array controller
to the second SCSI bus segment of the enclosure is however unsupported.
•
If a Smart Array 5300A controller loses communication with a storage
enclosure, then all physical drives in this enclosure are seen via SNMP Agent
as located in an enclosure Bay 255. This typically means there is a hardware
problem with the enclosure. You should contact HP Services for the enclosure
troubleshooting.
