File SANDMAN.BIN: invalid or corrupted
Determining and setting the controller mode
The Smart Array P411/256 controller has two operating modes:
•
Use RAID mode to take advantage of hardware-based fault-tolerant data storage methods
such as RAID 1, RAID 1+0, or RAID 5. This reduces the amount of available storage space.
RAID mode is supported on HP-UX and Windows; it is the required operating mode for servers
running Windows.
•
Use HBA mode to access raw disks for increased storage capacity, to allow fault-tolerant
storage to be managed by the enclosure firmware, or to implement software-based RAID
modes using a volume manager.
IMPORTANT:
SATA disks are not supported when the Smart Array controller is in HBA mode.
Tape devices are supported in both operating modes.
Use the saupdate.efi command with the get_mode and set_mode options to query or change
the mode of the Smart Array P410i and Smart Array P411 controllers to HBA or RAID. Querying
or changing modes is not supported for other controllers.
GET_MODE
This option displays the current mode of the controllers.
Syntax
saupdate get_mode <controller>
<controller> can be any one of the strings listed in Table 1.
Determining and setting the controller mode
19
Table 1 <controller> strings
<controller>
Meaning
<seg:bus:dev:func>
A controller having the PCI segment id, bus id, device id
and function id is addressed
all
Addresses all controllers in the system
<model>
Controllers of a particular type indicated by the <model>
string are addressed
SET_MODE
IMPORTANT: If you are using HBA mode, do not install any disk that has previously been a part
of a RAID volume into the system.
Use set_mode to change the mode of the controller. If the controller is already in the required
mode the following message appears:
The controller at <seg:bus:dev:func> is already in HBA|RAID mode
Syntax
saupdate set_mode <controller> <hba|raid> [-f]
<controller> can be any one of the strings listed in Table 1 (page 20).
An alert message about the possible data loss is displayed when a mode change command is
issued. A confirmation is required before the actual mode change is made. This ensures that an
unintentional change of mode does not happen.
The –f indicates the user is aware of the changes that are being made, and no warning message
or confirmation regarding the mode change is needed.
20
Installing, verifying, and configuring the controller
NOTE:
Commands are not case-sensitive. A system reset is not required after a mode change.
NOTE:
After changing the mode, perform a reconnect -r command at UEFI.

A Electrostatic discharge
This appendix discusses ways to prevent damage to your system due to Electrostatic Discharge
(ESD).
Handling parts
To prevent damage to your system, you must take precautions when setting up the system or
handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor can damage system
boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage can reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
•
Avoid hand contact; transport and store 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 handling a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding
Use one or more of the following grounding methods when handling or installing
electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
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 resistance in the ground cords.
To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
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.
•
A portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
