IBM FlashSystem V9000 7.4: Quick Start Guide
Chapter 1. Overview
This guide provides a high-level roadmap to guide the customer, IBM service
support representative (SSR), and IBM lab based services (if applicable) through
the planning, installation, and initial configuration steps that are needed to set up
this system (MTM 9846-AC2, 9848-AC2, 9846-AE2, 9848-AE2).
For detailed instructions, refer to FlashSystem™ V9000 Knowledge Center for
service (https://ibm.biz/fs_V9000_service_kc). Note: IBM intranet connection
required.
This system consists of two AC2 control enclosures, and one AE2 storage
enclosure. These three enclosures form a 6U building block (BB). When the three
enclosures and their 6U bezel are installed, the components of the FlashSystem
V9000 appear as shown in the following figure:

▌1▐ AC2 control enclosure (2U)
▌2▐ AE2 storage enclosure (2U)
▌3▐ AC2 control enclosure (2U)
There are two types of building blocks: fixed building blocks and scalable building
blocks. The type of building block determines the particular planning and
installation steps that must be followed.
v In a fixed building block, the AC2 control enclosures and AE2 storage enclosure
are directly connected without the use of switches or a storage area network
(SAN) fabric. A fixed building block is usable and self-reliant in system
operation and management. It can be scaled later, but the scaling process for a
fixed building block is physically disruptive.
v A scalable building block is designed so that the AC2 control enclosures and AE2
storage enclosure are connected either through an internal Fibre Channel (FC)
storage fabric by using dedicated FC switches, or through the customer SAN
fabric. Management connections to the AC2 control enclosures and FC switches
are established through an Ethernet switch to create a private management LAN.

Additional scalable building blocks and flash expansion enclosures can be added
by installing AC2 control enclosures and AE2 storage enclosures and connecting
them to the internal or external SAN fabric, and to the Ethernet switch.

Chapter 2. Planning (customer task)
The customer should ensure that they complete the prerequisite planning tasks and
worksheets, before the IBM service support representative (SSR) and lab based
services can proceed with the installation.
Planning overview and prerequisites
It is important to plan the FlashSystem V9000 configuration and to complete the
planning tasks and worksheets before system installation.
Before the system is installed and configured, the customer must complete all the
planning worksheets.
When the planning worksheets are completed, the customer submits them to the
service support representative (SSR).
Prerequisites for installation
Before the SSR installs the FlashSystem V9000, the customer must have the
following items available:
v Workstation with USB port for initial configuration.
v Supported web browser.
v Ethernet connection.
v Rack spaces for the AC2 control enclosures and AE2 storage enclosure.
v If the customer chooses to use a Power Distribution Unit (PDU), the network
and power provisions for the PDU must already be in place.
v Fibre Channel host connections set up by the customer.
Planning worksheets (customer task)
The customer should complete the planning worksheets for the building block to
provide information to the IBM service support representative (SSR), and IBM lab
based services, if applicable.
Worksheets for fixed building blocks
For detailed worksheets used in a fixed building block installation, the customer
should see Planning > Planning for the hardware installation > Planning
worksheets for fixed building blocks in FlashSystem V9000 Knowledge Center
(https://ibm.biz/fs_V9000_kc).
When the planning worksheets are completed, the customer submits them to the
SSR for use during the installation process.
Worksheets for scalable building blocks

Chapter 3. Installing the hardware (IBM SSR task)
The IBM service support representative (SSR) is responsible for installing the
FlashSystem V9000 hardware in the rack.
In the case of a scalable building block, installing components in the specified rack
locations allows the SSR to add additional building blocks without disrupting
service to existing building blocks. The following table shows component locations
in an MTM 7014-T42 rack for up to four scalable building blocks.
Note: The number of Fibre Channel (FC) switches that are installed depends on
the type of FC adapters that are installed in the AC2 control enclosures for storage
connections. 8 Gb FC adapters require four FC switches; 16 Gb adapters require
only two FC switches.
Note: Installing components in the specified rack locations allows you to add
additional building blocks without disrupting service to existing building blocks.
