Managing the NAS 1000s
The NAS 1000s is configured at the factory with default system
settings and with the NAS operating system installed. Refer to the
“Storage Management Overview” section later in this chapter for
more information.
The NAS administrator uses Windows Logical Disk Manager
(LDM) to manage the logical storage.

Product Redundancy
The NAS 1000s is specifically designed to perform file serving
tasks for networks, using industry standard components to ensure
reliability.
Other industry standard features, such as redundant array of
independent drives (RAID) and remote manageability, further
enhance the overall dependability of the NAS 1000s.
To ensure redundancy and reliability, the hard drives installed in
the NAS 1000s are configured so that a single drive failure will
not cause data loss or system failure. The NAS 1000s is
configured with dual boot capibility. When powered on, the NAS
1000s can boot using a primary OS or a secondary recovery OS.
The primary OS resides on drive 0 and is mirrored on drive 1
while the secondary OS resides on drive 2 and is mirrored on
drive 3. If the primary OS becomes corrupted and un-bootable,
the secondary OS is available for data backup prior to using the
Quick Restore DVD to restore the system to the factory default
state.
The data volume is configured as a RAID 5 volume across all
four drives. This ensures redundancy in the event of a drive
failure and the data volume is accessible by both the primary OS
and secondary OS.

chap1.fm Page 20 Thursday, May 15, 2003 4:33 PM
Dependencies and Requirements
Specific conditions must be met in order for the NAS 1000s to
operate.
Storage Requirements
To protect against data loss from hard drive failure, configure
storage with fault tolerance in mind. HP recommends adhering to
RAID5 configurations.
IP Networking and Setup Requirements
The following are IP networking and setup requirements needed
for a NAS 1000s device:
■
Windows-based PC running Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5
(or later) on the same network segment as the NAS 1000s;
this will be used to set up and administer the NAS device.
■
Additional Ethernet connection ports to client subnets
(depending on network options ordered).
Deploying the NAS 1000s on the Network
The default shipping configuration contains two 10/100/1000
integrated network interface controller (NIC) ports for client data
access. These data ports also allow access to the Web user
interface (WebUI) that accompanies the product. Most
management and administrative procedures can be accomplished
via the WebUI.

Setup and Configuration Overview
Setting up systems is a well-defined process. This section is
intended as an overview of the process, not a detailed list of
step-by-step instructions. Step-by-step procedures are
documented in the administration guide. Some of the steps are
driven by wizards within the WebUI. In either type of setup, it is
important to read all of the supplied documentation before
starting. Relevant documents include:

document will be available via www.hp.com)
Configuring the NAS 1000s
The following describes how to configure the NAS 1000s.
1. Configure the NAS device using Chapter 2 of this guide.
2. This is a recommended step. Place the NAS device into an
Active Directory or Windows NT 4.0 domain for ease of
manageability.
3. Configure the NAS 1000s device using Chapter 3 of this
guide.
4. Using Logical Disk Manager (LDM), assign drive letters or
mount points, and format the data drives. See the LDM online
help for full details on this procedure.
5. This is an optional step. Enable protocols such as NFS
sharing, NCP, and/or AppleTalk. See the administration guide
for this procedure in detail.
6. This is an optional step. Create shares corresponding to the
protocols mentioned in the previous steps. Grant access rights
to the shares.
7. Read the remaining sections of the administration guide.

Storage Management Overview
This section provides an overview of the components that make
up the NAS storage structure. A complete discussion of the
components and their relationships is available in the
administration guide.
Caution: This section on storage management and Windows
LDM is required reading material for the NAS administrator.
This section develops the concepts and requirements that
serve as the basis for successfully using an HP StorageWorks
NAS device. Failure to read this section and the appropriate
sections on storage management in the administration guide
may lead to data loss or file corruption.
Storage Management Elements
Storage is broken up into five major divisions:
■
Logical storage elements
■
Persistent Storage Manager Elements
■
File system elements
■
File sharing elements
Each of these elements is composed of the previous level’s
elements.
Logical Storage Elements
The NAS 1000s utilizes the Microsoft Logical Disk Manager
(LDM) for managing the various types of disk presented to the
file system. Logical Disk Manager has two types of disk
presentations: basic disk and dynamic disk. Each of these types of
disk has special features that enable different types of
management. The NAS 1000s uses a dynamic RAID5 volume to
ensure maximum data protection. This volume can then be
assigned a drive letter or mount point, formatted, and the
presented to the operating system for use.

Persistent Storage Manager lets the administrator make replicas
of disks, called snapshots. Snapshots enable the creation of
multipurpose logical replicas of production data without having
to physically copy the data. They can be used to immediately
recover a lost file or directory, to test a new application with
realistic data without affecting the “real” data, and to serve as a
source of data for backups. Snapshots are a temporary backup of
the data and are not meant to be permanent.
Snapshots use existing space from the volume, partition, or
logical drive to maintain the data required to present the original
data. This space is termed the cache file. By default the cache
files consumes 10 percent of the available space of a logical
storage element. Snapshots can be read only, read-write or always
keep, and if they are shared, users can access a snapshot and edit
the data. If snapshots are shared with write access enabled, a
second snapshot of the original volume should be created. There
is no backup of the original snapshot unless a second snapshot of
the volume is taken.
Snapshot Facts
■
Snapshots are created on a per volume, partition, or logical
drive basis.
■
Snapshots can be read-only, read-write or always keep.
■
Snapshots are mounted as a mount point on the root of the
volume, partition or logical drive.
■
Snapshots can be shared in the same manner as any other
folder, drive or mount point.
■
Snapshots are meant to be temporary in nature.
■
Snapshots are automatically deleted if disk space becomes
critical and they are not set to always keep.
■
Persistent Storage Manager only writes to the cache file on
the first change of the underlying data.
Full documentation of Persistent Storage Manager may be found
in the administration guide.

File System Elements
File system elements are composed of the folders and subfolders
that are created under each logical storage element (partitions,
logical disks, and volumes). Folders are used to further subdivide
the available file system providing another level of granularity for
management of the information space. Each of these folders can
contain separate permissions and share names that can be used for
network access. Folders can be created for individual users,
groups, projects, etc. Refer to the administration guide for more
details on file system elements.
File-Sharing Elements
The NAS 1000s supports several file-sharing protocols, including
CIFS, NFS, FTP, HTTP, NCP, and AppleTalk. On each folder or
logical storage element, different file-sharing protocols can be
enabled using specific network names for access across a network
to a variety of clients. Permissions can then be granted to those
shares based on users or groups of users in each of the file sharing
protocols. Refer to the administration guide for more details on
file system elements.

Hot-Plug Hard Drive
4
This chapter provides information about replacing the
hot-pluggable hard drives of the HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s.
Important Guidelines for Replacing
Hot-Pluggable Hard Drives
Follow these guidelines when replacing drives configured for
fault tolerance on an HP StorageWorks NAS 1000s:
■
Never remove more than one drive at a time.
When a drive is replaced, the controller uses data from the
other drives in the array to reconstruct data on the
replacement drive. If more than one drive is removed, a
complete data set is not available to reconstruct data on the
replacement drives and permanent data loss can occur.
■
Never remove a drive while another drive is being rebuilt.
A replaced drive is rebuilt from data stored on the other
drives.
■
If a drive is replaced while the system is Off, it may be
necessary to rebuild the replaced drive. Follow the
instructions in the “ Replacing a Failed Hard Drive” section
of this guide or the instructions outlined in the system’s
reference guide.
NAS 1000s Quick Start Guide
35
Dexter_5.5x8.5_book.book Page 36 Wednesday, May 14, 2003 9:45 AM

Regulatory
Compliance Notices
A
Federal Communications Commission Notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules
and Regulations has established Radio Frequency (RF) emission
limits to provide an interference-free radio frequency spectrum.
Many electronic devices, including computers, generate RF
energy incidental to their intended function and are, therefore,
covered by these rules. These rules place computers and related
peripheral devices into two classes, A and B, depending upon
their intended installation. Class A devices are those that may
reasonably be expected to be installed in a business or
commercial environment. Class B devices are those that may
reasonably be expected to be installed in a residential
environment (personal computers, for example). The FCC
requires devices in both classes to bear a label indicating the
interference potential of the device as well as additional operating
instructions for the user.
The rating label on the device shows which class (A or B) the
equipment falls into. Class B devices have an FCC logo or FCC
ID on the label. Class A devices do not have an FCC logo or FCC
ID on the label. Once the class of the device is determined, refer
to the following corresponding statement.

energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user
is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
■
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
■
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
■
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
■
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio or television
technician for help.

Electrostatic
Discharge
B
To prevent damage to 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, observe the following
precautions:
■
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.
NAS 1000s Quick Start Guide
47
Dexter_5.5x8.5_book.book Page 48 Wednesday, May 14, 2003 9:45 AM
Grounding Methods
There are several methods 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 grounding, 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.
