1 Introduction
The HP StoreEver 1U Rack-mount Enclosure is a rack-mountable storage system capable of holding
up to two half-height 5.25 inch tape or RDX disk drives. It is compatible with most standard 19
inch racks.
Figure 1 1U Rack-mount Enclosure
Standard Features
Standard features of the 1U rack-mount enclosure:
•
Supports one or two 5.25 inch half-height tape or RDX disk drives
•
Installation in standard 19 inch racks with round, square, or threaded holes
NOTE:
Daisy-chaining of two or more SCSI version 1U rack-mount enclosures is not supported.
Supported Controllers and HBAs
For up-to-date SCSI and SAS HBA compatibility information, review the compatibility matrix on
the Enterprise Backup Solutions website at: http://www.hp.com/storage/SPOCK.
NOTE: SCSI drives: The SCSI bus type determines the speed at which data can be transferred
between devices on the bus and the maximum length of cable that can be used. LTO–3 and LTO–4
tape drives support a burst transfer rate of 320 MB/sec. LTO–2 tape drives support a burst transfer
rate of 160 MB/sec. To benefit from this level of performance, it is important to ensure that the
drives are connected to a SCSI bus of a similar or higher specification. LTO–3 and LTO–4 SCSI
drives should be on their own SCSI bus.
SAS Cabling Recommendations
CAUTION: High quality external SAS cables rated at the transfer rate of the drive are required.
Always verify that the external SAS cable being used is rated for the data transfer speed of the
interface of your component. SAS cables described as "equalized" may not support 6 Gb/s data
rates and should not be used with LTO-5 or LTO-6 tape drives unless these cables are verified for
6 Gb/s data rates. For optimum performance, only use HP cables of the length specified as qualified
for your products. Refer to http://www.hp.com/storage/SPOCK for recommended cables.
The SAS interface board has two external ports illustrated below. The supplied internal SAS cable
supports connection of two devices. Several cabling configurations are possible, but the following
cabling configuration is recommended to provide the most consistent layout between devices and
external connectors.
Looking at the rack from the rear, the right-most external port is Port 1 and the left-most external
port is Port 2.
4
Introduction
Figure 2 External SAS ports on the 1U rack-mount enclosure
When two SAS devices are installed, the right–most connector of the internal cable is connected
to the device on the right and the left-most connector of the internal cable is connected to the device
on the left. This routes the right-hand device to external port 1 and the left-hand device to external
port 2.
NOTE: The interface board has text, “Port 1–0” and “Port 2–0”, on the PCI board near the
internal SAS connector, which also helps identify the routing to the external ports.

and DAT; do not use with other LTO drives)
4. SAS connector routes device to external port 1
2. SAS connector routes device to external port 2

Cabling with Two Devices
The 1U rack-mount enclosure supports operation of two devices.
SAS Devices
The 1U rack-mount enclosure supports operation of two SAS devices on two SAS buses. Two
internal SAS cables are installed in the enclosure, so completing the device installation is just a
matter of connecting each internal cable to a SAS device and cabling the external port to the
host. When connecting SAS devices to the internal cables, check to confirm that the SAS interface
in the enclosure supports the attached device. (For example, when connecting a tape drive device,
be sure to check that the SAS interface in the enclosure supports the attached tape drive.) The SAS
interface does not support daisy chaining. See also SAS cabling recommendations (page 4).
SCSI Devices
The 1U rack-mount enclosure supports operation of two devices on either one or two SCSI buses.
Two internal 2-port SCSI cables are installed in the enclosure, so completing the device installation
is just a matter of connecting the correct SCSI port according to your configuration.
One Device per SCSI Bus
Use the configuration shown below when connecting each device to a separate SCSI bus.
10
Drive Installation
NOTE:
One device per SCSI bus is the recommended configuration for LTO–3 and LTO–4 drives.

5. SCSI ID cables, one for each device
CAUTION: To prevent possible data errors, when there is only one device on a SCSI bus that
device must be connected to the SCSI port closest to the terminator.
Two Devices on One SCSI Bus
NOTE: It is not recommended to connect two LTO tape drives to the same SCSI bus; performance
may be degraded.
Use the configuration shown below when connecting both devices to the same SCSI bus.

Cabling with Two Devices
11
NOTE: Each SCSI device on the same SCSI bus must have a unique SCSI ID. Be sure that the
SCSI ID is different for each device and that neither is set to SCSI ID 7, which is reserved for the
SCSI controller.
NOTE: When adding a second device for configurations using a single SCSI bus.
1. Unplug the SCSI cable from device 1.
2. Pass the end of the cable through internal chassis openings.
3. Plug the end port into device 2.
4. Then plug the middle port into device 1.
The SCSI terminator is at the end of the cable and should be behind device 2.

B Electrostatic Discharge
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge
To prevent damaging 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:
•
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.
Grounding Methods to Prevent Electrostatic Discharge
Several methods are used 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 ground, 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.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.
