3 Deployment types

The following types of deployments are supported:

• Single domain

In a single domain deployment, one path exists from the disk enclosure to the host. In a single domain deployment, only one I/O module in the disk enclosure is used

• Dual domain

In a dual domain deployment, two paths exist from the disk enclosure to the host. In a dual domain deployment, both I/O modules in the disk enclosure are used. Because dual domain deployments provide two paths to the storage, access is ensured, even in the event of device, cable, or power failure. In dual domain environments, dual-port disk drives are required.

• Server attached (single or dual domain)

In a server attached deployment, the disk enclosure is connected to a controller card installed in a server. Several models of controller cards are supported for use with this disk enclosure. For more information, see the QuickSpecs for the disk enclosure.

• Controller enclosure attached (single or dual domain)

In a controller enclosure attached deployment, the disk enclosure is connected to a rack-mounted array controller enclosure. The controller enclosure is then connected to the server or network.

Several models of array controller enclosures are supported for use with this disk enclosure. For more information, see the QuickSpecs for the disk enclosure.

NOTE:

Cabling illustrations are provided elsewhere in this guide, showing a variety of example deployments.

System and performance expectations

To help determine the best way to configure your storage, rank the following three storage characteristics in order of importance:

• Fault tolerance (high availability)

• I/O performance

• Storage efficiency

With priorities established, you can determine which striping method and RAID level to use; some configuration methods offer greater fault tolerance, while other configuration methods offer better I/O performance or storage efficiency.

Striping methods

There are two methods for configuring the physical layout of the disk arrays:

• Vertical striping—the RAID array uses one physical drive from each disk enclosure.

• Horizontal striping—the RAID array uses multiple drives contained within one or more disk enclosures.

RAID levels

Controllers use RAID technology to group multiple disk drives together in larger logical units (LUNs).

Key RAID methods include the use of data striping, data mirroring, and parity error checking. Data striping improves speed by performing virtual disk I/O with an entire group of physical disks at the same time. Mirroring provides data redundancy by storing data and a copy of the data. Parity error checking provides automatic detection and correction if corruption of a physical disk occurs.

Depending on the host environment, the following RAID levels are supported with this disk enclosure:

RAID0, RAID1, RAID5 and RAID6 with ADG. Each level uses a different combination of RAID methods that impact data redundancy, the amount of physical disk space used, and I/O speed. After you create a LUN, you cannot change the RAID level.

The following table compares the different RAID levels.

26 Installation

RAID0

RAID1

RAID5

RAID6

Summary Best practices Data redundancy

RAID0 is optimized for I/O speed and efficient use of physical disk capacity, but provides no data redundancy.

IMPORTANT : Do not use RAID0 for LUNs if fault tolerance is required. Consider RAID0 only for noncritical storage. RAID0 LUNs provide the best performance for applications that use random I/O.

None

RAID1 is optimized for data redundancy and I/O speed, but uses the most physical disk space. IMPORTANT :

RAID1 uses about 100% more physical disk space than RAID0 and 70% more than RAID5.

In general, RAID1 virtual disks provide better performance characteristics over a wider range of application workloads than

RAID5.

High

RAID5 provides a balance of data redundancy, I/O speed and efficient use of physical disk space.

RAID5 virtual disks can provide performance advantages over

RAID1 for some applications that use sequential I/O. Consider

RAID5 disks for applications with high sequential I/O of records in multiples of 8K bytes. The larger the record size, the greater the advantage.

Medium

Like RAID5, RAID6 generates and stores parity information to protect against data loss caused by drive failure.

With RAID6, however, two different sets of parity data are used, allowing data to be preserved if two drives fail.

RAID6 is most useful when data loss is unacceptable but cost is also an important factor. The probability that data loss will occur when an array is configured with RAID6 is less than it would be if it was configured with

RAID5. However, write performance is lower than RAID5 because of the two sets of parity data.

Disk drive sizes and types

RAID arrays should be composed of disk drives of the same size and performance capability. When drives are mixed within a disk enclosure, the usable capacity and the processing ability of the entire storage sub-system is affected. For example, when a RAID array is composed of different sized drives, the RAID array defaults to the smallest individual drive size, and capacity in the larger drives goes unused.

Spare disks

Spares are disks that are not active members of any particular array, but have been configured to be used when a disk in one of the arrays fails. If a spare is present, it will immediately be used to begin rebuilding the information that was on the failed disk, using parity information from the other member disks. During the rebuilding process, the array is operating in a reduced state and, unless it is a RAID6 or RAID1+0 array, it cannot tolerate another disk failure in the same array. If another disk

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 27

fails at this time, the array becomes inaccessible and information stored there must be restored from backup.

After the rebuild of the data onto the spare is completed, when a replacement drive is inserted to replace the failed drive, the system will automatically transfer the data from the spare onto the replacement drive and return the spare to an available-spare state. It is important to note that the process of rebuilding the spare or the replacement drive must not be interrupted or the process will be aborted.

Some administrators have multiple spare disks, so that multiple arrays can experience failure and successfully recover, before administrative intervention would be required to replace the spare or failed disk. When assigning a spare to an array, the administrator chooses which arrays and how many arrays are protected by that spare.

Array sizing

As a general rule, the greater the number of drives that are included in an array, the greater the performance level that can be achieved. However, performance considerations are offset by fault tolerance considerations. The greater the number of drives in an array, the higher the probability of one or more disk failures in that array. The administrator must strike a balance between performance and fault tolerance.

28 Installation

Preparing the site

Preparing your site includes:

• Providing adequate structural support

Calculate the total weight of your equipment and verify that your site can support the weight.

For HP ProLiant server environments, consider using Rack Builder, a software tool that provides a simplified method to planning and configuring racks and rack-mountable products. Rack Builder is available on the Options tab of the ProLiant Home page of the HP servers website: http:// www.hp.com/country/us/eng/prodserv/servers.html

.

• Providing adequate clearance space and ventilation

Be sure to provide adequate clearance around the front and back of the racks. Provide at least

63.5 cm (25 in) in the front of the rack to allow the doors to open fully and provide at least 76.2

cm (30 in) in the rear of the rack to allow for servicing and airflow.

If there are unused spaces in your rack, attach blanking panels across those empty spaces to force the airflow through the components instead of through the open spaces.

• Providing adequate and redundant sources of power

Make sure that you have two high-line power feeds installed near your computer. These two power sources usually come from the same external power grid, but occasionally might originate from different grids or even entirely different sources.

For protection against a power-source failure, obtain and include two uninterruptible power supplies in your installation.

For power consumption specifications, see the QuickSpecs for your disk enclosure model.

To ensure continuous, safe, and reliable operation of your equipment, place your system in an approved environment.

Consider using the HP Enterprise Configurator (eCO) to help plan and configure racks and rack-mountable devices. The eCO is available on the HP website: http://h30099.www3.hp.com/ configurator .

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 29

Racking the disk enclosure

The disk enclosure can be installed into most standard server racks. To verify that your rack is supported for use with the disk enclosure, see the QuickSpecs for the disk enclosure, available on the D2000 website: http://www.hp.com/go/D2000 .

CAUTION:

Install disk drives in the enclosures only after mounting the enclosures in the rack.

• A disk enclosure populated with disk drives is too heavy to lift safely.

• Movement of a disk enclosure during installation might damage the internal storage media of installed disk drives.

Rack installation best practices

In addition to industry-standard recommendations, consider the following:

• Locate the heaviest items, such as uninterruptable power supplies (UPS) and additional disk enclosures near the bottom of the rack.

• To make cabling easy, install the disk enclosures below the server.

• Install similar components next to each other in the rack. Because disk enclosures, switches, and servers are of differing depths, if you have more than one of a device, mount those devices adjacent to one another to accommodate working behind the rack.

WARNING!

To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, be sure that:

• At least two people lift the storage system during removal or installation if the weight exceeds

22.7 kg (50 lb). If the system is being loaded into the rack above chest level, a third person MUST assist with aligning the system with the rails while the other two people support the weight of the system.

• The leveling jacks on the rack are extended to the floor.

• The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.

• The stabilizing feet are attached to the rack if it is a single-rack installation.

• The racks are coupled together in multiple-rack installations.

• Only one component in a rack is extended at a time. A rack might become unstable if more than one component is extended.

• To prevent damage and to ease insertion of the device into the rack, support the weight of the device and keep it level when sliding it into the rack.

30 Installation

Racking procedures

1.

Position left and right rack rails at the desired 'U' position in the rack, adjusting the rails to fit the rack, as needed (1).

2.

Secure rack rails to the front and back rack columns using screws. Make sure that the shoulders of the screws fit inside the square or round holes of the rack (2).

NOTE:

If installing rails in a square hole rack, use larger-sized shoulder screws and pins for mounting.

If installing rails in a round hole rack, use smaller-sized shoulder screws and pins for mounting.

3.

Slide the device into position on the rails (1) and then tighten the thumbscrews on the front of the device to secure the device to the rack.

NOTE:

The rear ends of the rails have a bracket that must engage the device chassis to secure the rear of the chassis to the rails.

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 31

Installing disk drives in the enclosure

Disk drive options

Depending on the enclosure model, 12 or 25 disk drives can be installed in the enclosure.

A variety of disk drive models are supported for use, including dual-ported and single-ported models.

For more information about supported disk drives, see the QuickSpecs for the disk enclosure, available on the D2000 website: http://www.hp.com/go/D2000 .

Disk drive guidelines

CAUTION:

• Follow industry-standard practices when handling disk drives. Internal storage media can be damaged when drives are shaken, dropped, or roughly placed on a work surface.

• When installing a disk drive, press firmly to make sure the drive is fully seated in the drive bay and then close the latch handle.

• When removing a disk drive, press the release button and pull the drive only slightly out of the enclosure. Then, to allow time for the internal disk to stop rotating, wait approximately 10 seconds before completely removing the drive from the enclosure.

• Always populate hard drive bays starting with the lowest bay number. If only one hard drive is used, install it in the bay with the lowest device number.

• Disk drives are hot-pluggable.

• SAS and SATA disk drives may be installed in the same enclosure, but can not be included in the same RAID logical volume.

Installing a disk drive

CAUTION:

To prevent improper cooling and thermal damage, operate the enclosure only when all bays are populated with either a component or a blank.

1.

Remove the drive blank.

32 Installation

2.

Unlatch and swing out the latch handle on the drive. Then, slide the drive into the bay (1), pressing firmly on the drive to seat it. Close the latch handle (2), pressing firmly until it locks in place.

IMPORTANT:

When a drive is inserted in an operational enclosure, the drive LEDs flash to indicate that the drive is seated properly and receiving power.

3.

Determine the status of the hard drive (see

Drive status reporting

).

IMPORTANT:

For proper airflow and cooling, a drive blank must remain installed in all unused drive bays.

Connecting cables includes the following steps:

1.

Reading the

Cabling best practices , page 35.

2.

Connecting SAS cables to the server or controller enclosure , page 36.

3.

Connecting SAS cables to cascaded disk enclosures , page 37.

4.

Connecting power cords , page 38.

IMPORTANT:

The following illustrations demonstrate connecting a disk enclosure to a server with an installed controller. In your environment, the disk enclosure might connect to a controller enclosure, which then connects to the host or network. Cabling restrictions may exist for the different installation environments.

For more information, see the user documents for your controller or controller enclosure.

NOTE:

For additional examples of cabling scenarios, see Chapter 7 on page 45.

Cabling best practices

• Use supported SAS cables and power cords. A variety of cables and cable lengths are supported for use with this disk enclosure. For more information, see the QuickSpecs for the disk enclosure, available on the D2000 website: http://www.hp.com/go/D2000 .

• Use the shortest possible cable between devices. Shorter cables reduce the possibility of signal degradation that might occur over longer distances. In addition, shorter cables are easier to manage and route along the back of the rack.

• Gather cables in the rear of the disk enclosure to ensure that the cabling in the back of the rack system does not interfere with system operation or maintenance. Bind cables loosely with cable ties and route the cables out of the way, along the side of the rack. When the cables are tied together and routed down the side of the rack, system components and indicators are easily visible and accessible.

• Bind and support cables in a manner that eliminates stress on connectors and tight bends of the cables. This prevents damage to the connector and cable, and ensures that the connector remains fully seated in the port.

• Attach a label near both ends of each cable to identify the device connected to that cable. Include the device, device name, port, or other useful information.

• Use colored markers to color code both ends of each cable, to help visually identify a particular cable without having to read or locate the label.

• In multipath configurations, you might want to loosely bind the matching pair of cables connecting devices.

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 35

Connecting SAS cables to the server or controller enclosure

To connect the first disk enclosure to the server or controller enclosure, use a standard mini-SAS cable.

IMPORTANT:

When connecting this disk enclosure in a single-domain environment, only the top I/O module (I/O module A) in the disk enclosure is supported for use.

Observe the following guidelines:

• Only use supported SAS cables with mini-SAS connectors.

• Ensure that the servers or controller enclosures are powered down and power cords are disconnected before connecting SAS cables to the disk enclosure.

The following illustration demonstrates connecting a disk enclosure to a server with an installed controller. In your environment, the disk enclosure might connect to a controller enclosure, which then connects to the host or network. Regardless of environment, cabling principles from the disk enclosure to the host are the same.

Note the following when connecting cables:

• P1 on the disk enclosure I/O module is treated as the SAS “in” port.

• P2 on the disk enclosure I/O module is treated as the SAS “out” port.

• In single-domain configurations, one cable path is created between the host, the primary disk enclosure, and additional cascaded disk enclosures. (Shown)

• In dual-domain configurations, two cable paths are created between the host, the primary disk enclosure, and additional cascaded disk enclosures.

36 Installation

Connecting SAS cables to cascaded disk enclosures

To cascade additional disk enclosures from the disk enclosure that is connected to the server or controller enclosure, use standard mini-SAS cables.

As additional disk enclosures are connected to the first disk enclosure, they are assigned a box number.

The assigned box number is displayed on the 7-segment display on the rear of the disk enclosure.

IMPORTANT:

• When connecting this disk enclosure in a single-domain environment, only the top I/O module

(I/O module A) in the disk enclosure is supported for use.

• The number of supported cascaded disk enclosures varies per disk enclosure model and installation environment. For more information, see the QuickSpecs for the disk enclosure, controller, or controller enclosure, available on the HP storage website: http://www.hp.com/go/storage .

Observe the following guidelines:

• Only use supported SAS cables with mini-SAS connectors.

• Use provided color clues on the disk enclosure when cabling cascaded disk enclosures; for example, connect “green” ports to “green” ports (connect I/O module A on one disk enclosure to I/O module A on the additional disk enclosure).

Note the following when connecting cables:

• P1 on the disk enclosure I/O module is treated as the SAS “in” port.

• P2 on the disk enclosure I/O module is treated as the SAS “out” port.

• In single-domain configurations, one cable path is created between the host, the primary disk enclosure, and additional cascaded disk enclosures. (Shown)

• In dual-domain configurations, two cable paths are created between the host, the primary disk enclosure, and additional cascaded disk enclosures.

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 37

Connecting power cords

When connecting power cords, use the cords shipped with the disk enclosure.

The power cord should be approved for use in your country. The power cord must be rated for the product and for the voltage and current marked on the electrical ratings label of the product.

• This example illustrates using a Small Form Factor disk enclosure with one additional cascaded disk enclosure. When using Large Form Factor disk enclosures, more than one additional disk enclosure can be cascaded. For more information, see the QuickSpecs for the Large Form Factor disk enclosure.

IMPORTANT:

This cabling scheme is supported for use only when the disk enclosure is connected to a Smart Array controller.

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 53

Recognizing disk drive failure

In an HP enclosure, a steadily glowing fault LED indicates that a disk drive has failed. Other indications of failed disk drives are as follows:

• ACU represents failed drives with a distinctive icon.

• HP SIM can detect failed drives remotely across a network. (For more information about HP SIM, see the documentation on the Management CD.)

• ADU lists all failed drives.

• Operating System log files

For additional information about diagnosing disk drive problems, see the HP ProLiant Servers

Troubleshooting Guide.

Effects of a disk drive failure

When a disk drive fails, all logical drives that are in the same array are affected. Each logical drive in an array might be using a different fault-tolerance method, so each logical drive can be affected differently.

• RAID0 configurations cannot tolerate drive failure. If any physical drive in the array fails, all nonfault-tolerant (RAID0) logical drives in the same array also fail.

• RAID1+0 configurations can tolerate multiple drive failures as long as no failed drives are mirrored to one another (with no spares assigned).

• RAID5 configurations can tolerate one drive failure (with no spares assigned).

• RAID6 with ADG configurations can tolerate simultaneous failure of two drives (with no spares assigned).

Compromised fault tolerance

If more disk drives fail than the fault-tolerance method allows, fault tolerance is compromised, and the logical drive fails.

Factors to consider before replacing disk drives

Before replacing a degraded drive:

• Open HP SIM and inspect the Error Counter window for each physical drive in the same array to confirm that no other drives have any errors. For details, see the HP SIM documentation on the

Management CD.

• Be sure that the array has a current, valid backup.

• Use replacement drives that have a capacity at least as great as that of the smallest drive in the array. The controller immediately fails drives that have insufficient capacity.

To minimize the likelihood of fatal system errors, take these precautions when removing failed drives:

• Do not remove a degraded drive if any other drive in the array is offline (the online LED is off). In this situation, no other drive in the array can be removed without data loss.

• Exceptions:

• When RAID1+0 is used, drives are mirrored in pairs. Several drives can be in a failed condition simultaneously (and they can all be replaced simultaneously) without data loss, as long as no two failed drives belong to the same mirrored pair.

54 Troubleshooting

• When RAID6 with ADG is used, two drives can fail simultaneously (and be replaced simultaneously) without data loss.

• If the offline drive is a spare, the degraded drive can be replaced.

• Do not remove a second drive from an array until the first failed or missing drive has been replaced and the rebuild process is complete. (The rebuild is complete when the Online LED on the front of the drive stops blinking.)

Exceptions:

• In RAID6 with ADG configurations, any two drives in the array can be replaced simultaneously.

• In RAID1+0 configurations, any drives that are not mirrored to other removed or failed drives can be simultaneously replaced offline without data loss.

Automatic data recovery (rebuild)

When you replace a disk drive in an array, the controller uses the fault-tolerance information on the remaining drives in the array to reconstruct the missing data (the data that was originally on the replaced drive) and write it to the replacement drive. This process is called automatic data recovery, or rebuild. If fault tolerance is compromised, this data cannot be reconstructed and is likely to be permanently lost.

Time required for a rebuild

• The time required for a rebuild varies considerably, depending on several factors:

• The priority that the rebuild is given over normal I/O operations (you can change the priority setting by using ACU)

• The amount of I/O activity during the rebuild operation

• The rotational speed of the disk drives

• The availability of drive cache

• The model and age of the drives

• The amount of unused capacity on the drives

• The number of drives in the array (for RAID5 and RAID6 with ADG)

Allow approximately 5 minutes per gigabyte without any I/O activity during the rebuild process. This figure is conservative, and newer drive models usually require less time to rebuild.

System performance is affected during the rebuild, and the system is unprotected against further drive failure until the rebuild has finished. Therefore, replace drives during periods of low activity when possible.

CAUTION:

If the Online LED of the replacement drive stops blinking and the amber fault LED glows, or if other drive LEDs in the array go out, the replacement drive has failed and is producing unrecoverable disk errors. Remove and replace the failed replacement drive.

When automatic data recovery has finished, the online LED of the replacement drive stops blinking and begins to glow steadily.

Failure of another drive during rebuild

If a non-correctable read error occurs on another physical drive in the array during the rebuild process, the Online LED of the replacement drive stops blinking and the rebuild abnormally terminates. If this

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 55

situation occurs, restart the server. The system might temporarily become operational long enough to allow recovery of unsaved data. In any case, locate the faulty drive, replace it, and restore data from backup.

Handling disk drive failures

If the controller was configured with hardware fault tolerance, complete the following steps after a disk drive failure:

1.

Determine which physical drive failed. On hot-plug drives, an amber drive failure LED illuminates.

2.

If the unit containing the failed drive does not support hot-plug drives, perform a normal shutdown.

3.

Remove the failed drive and replace it with a drive that is of the same capacity. For hot-plug drives, after you secure the drive in the bay, the LEDs on the drive each flash once in an alternating pattern to indicate a successful connection. The online LED flashes, indicating that the controller recognized the drive replacement and began the recovery process.

4.

Power on the server, if applicable.

5.

The controller reconstructs the information on the new drive, based on information from the remaining physical drives in the logical drive. While reconstructing the data on hot-plug drives, the online LED flashes. When the drive rebuild is complete, the online LED is illuminated.

9 Replacement procedures

Customer self repair (CSR)

Information in “ Exploded view ” on page 59 identifies hardware components that are customer

replaceable. Using WEBES, ISEE or other diagnostic tools, a support specialist will work with you to diagnose and assess whether a replacement component is required to address a system problem.

The specialist will also help you determine whether you can perform the replacement.

Parts-only warranty service

Your HP Limited Warranty might include a parts-only warranty service. Under the terms of parts-only warranty service, HP will provide replacement parts free of charge.

For parts-only warranty service, CSR part replacement is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts, you will be charged for travel and labor costs.

Best practices for replacing hardware components

The following information will help you replace the hardware components on your storage system successfully.

CAUTION:

Removing a component significantly changes the air flow within the enclosure. Components or a blanking panel must be installed for the enclosure to cool properly. If a component fails, leave it in place in the enclosure until a new component is available to install.

Verifying component failure

• Consult HP technical support to verify that the hardware component has failed and that you are authorized to replace it yourself.

• Additional hardware failures can complicate component replacement. Check your management utilities to detect any additional hardware problems:

• When you have confirmed that a component replacement is required, you might want to clear the failure message from the display. This makes it easier to identify additional hardware problems that might occur while waiting for the replacement part.

• Before installing the replacement part, check the management utility for new hardware problems.

If additional hardware problems have occurred, contact HP support before replacing the component.

D2600/D2700 Disk Enclosure User Guide 57

Identifying the spare part

Parts have a nine-character spare part number on their label. For some spare parts, the part number might be available in the management software utility. Alternatively, the HP call center will assist in identifying the correct spare part number.

Replacing the failed component

CAUTION:

Components can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). Use proper anti-static protection.

• Always transport and store components in an ESD protective enclosure.

• Do not remove the components from the ESD protective enclosure until you are ready to install it.

• Always use ESD precautions, such as a wrist strap, heel straps on conductive flooring, and an

ESD protective smock when handling ESD sensitive equipment.

• Avoid touching the components connector pins, leads, or circuitry.

• Do not place ESD generating material such as paper or non anti-static (pink) plastic in an ESD protective enclosure with ESD sensitive equipment.

• HP recommends waiting until periods of low storage system activity to replace a component.

• When replacing components at the rear of the rack, cabling might obstruct access to the component.

Carefully move any cables out of the way to avoid loosening any connections. In particular, avoid cable damage that might be caused by:

• Kinking or bending.

• Disconnecting cables without capping. If uncapped, cable performance might be impaired by contact with dust, metal or other surfaces.

58 Replacement procedures

• Placing removed cables on the floor or other surfaces, where they might be walked on or otherwise compressed.
