HP NetServer Installation Guide 4

Overview

HP NetServer clusters provide increased availability solutions for critical applications. The basic cluster consists of two HP NetServer systems coupled to shared storage units. The operating system files, application files, and other files local to each node are stored on fixed or hot swap disks. Local disks are usually located internally in the system.

Both HP NetServers share external drives located in the shared storage unit(s). Shared drives are accessed using an interface card (typically referred to as the Host Bus Adapter) located in each HP NetServer unit.

Both HP NetServers run Microsoft Windows NT Server, Enterprise Edition, which includes Microsoft

Cluster Server software.

This guide has been designed to help you setup the HP NetServers, set up, assemble and cable the cluster, and install server and cluster software.

NOTE

This installation guide is incomplete without the supplement specific to your shared storage system. When directed by this guide, turn to the supplement to get the necessary instructions.

2 NetServer Hardware Setup

When HP NetServers are shipped from the factory, they are configured for stand-alone operation. The first step in creating a cluster is to install additional hardware that allows the HP NetServers to:

Share data

Communicate with one another

Communicate with the LAN

CAUTION

Installing hardware requires opening the HP NetServers. HP therefore, recommends using a grounding kit. See part "1 What’s Needed" for details. The kit contains a wrist strap, anti-static mat, and cable.

Install Components

NOTE

Perform the following procedure on either HP NetServer first, and then repeat the procedure for the second NetServer.

1.

Gather the required hardware components for the HP NetServers and separate the components into two systems.

2.

Remove the HP NetServer cover(s).

3.

Install any of the following types of components that were supplied with your HP NetServers using the instructions supplied with each component. If needed, refer to HP Information Assistant for additional instructions:

Processors. If additional processors were supplied with your HP NetServers install them at this time.

Main Memory. Cluster operations require a minimum amount of main memory (RAM). Typically you do not need to add memory to your HP NetServers. However, if additional memory is required, it will be identified by the HP Order Assistant program and will be supplied. Install any additional memory that has been provided with your order. See the Configuration Guide for your cluster configuration and check that you meet the minimum memory requirements.

LAN Adapters. Install two LAN adapters in each HP NetServer. Refer to the HP NetServer

Configuration Guide for your cluster and install the adapters in the PCI slots stated in the guide. If other boards are installed in these slots, remove them and install them in other slots.

Internal Disks. If provided install the local storage drives (fixed or hot swap) into the HP

NetServers.

Local Storage Adapter. This adapter provides the interface to the local storage of the node. See the Configuration Guide for your cluster configuration for the PCI slot to use.

Host Bus (Shared Storage) Adapters. These adapters provide the interface to the Shared Storage

Systems and must be installed in specific PCI slots. See the Configuration Guide for your cluster configuration for the HP NetServer PCI slots to use.

See instructions supplied with the component or see part "2 NetServer Hardware Setup" of the Shared Storage Supplement for instructions on installing these adapters.

4 Cluster Cabling and Setup

Setup Cluster Hardware

Non-racked clusters - Follow the Site Preparation guidelines provided in the Planning Guide under Plan on the HP NetServers Clustering Solutions web site.

Racked clusters - Follow the Road Map supplied with the system and instructions in the shared storage supplement. In addition you should have rack layouts of your system printed from the HP NetServers Rack

Assistant program. If not, see HP NetServers web site to download this program.

Connect the LAN Adapters

Two sets of LAN adapters need to be connected. One set allows the cluster to communicate node-to-node over what is typically called the intra-cluster LAN. The second set allows the cluster to communicate with external clients over what is typically called the client LAN.

NOTE

See the Configuration Guide for your cluster for the PCI slots to be used for the intracluster and client LANs.

To connect the cluster’s LAN adapters:

1.

Connect the intra-cluster LAN adapter in one node to the intra-cluster LAN adapter in the other node using a crossover cable.

2.

Connect the client LAN adapter in each node to the client LAN using Ethernet cables.

Channel solutions go to Configure the Storage Devices using FCArray Assistant in the supplement

Create the Array File Systems

Use the instructions below and Windows NT Disk Administrator to partition, assign drive letters, and format the shared logical drives.

Reboot System A

Reboot System A so that Windows NT can recognize the logical drives created when you setup the shared storage. The system boots and loads Windows NT on System A.

CAUTION

You running Disk Administrator.

Run Windows NT Disk Administrator

From the Start menu, choose

Programs

,

Administrative Tools

, and then

Disk

Administrator

. Disk Administrator loads and scans the disks, and displays a list of the logical disks you identified. An example display follows:

NOTE

Disk Administrator lists disks in order, beginning with local (non-shared) disks followed by the shared disk arrays.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 31

Disk Administrator, Scanned Logical Disks

Create Full Disk Partitions for each Array

1.

Click the disk box to select the shared array to be partitioned.

Disk Administrator highlights the selected disk.

2.

From Disk Administrator’s

Partition

menu, choose

Create

.

A dialog appears indicating the maximum size of a single partition.

NOTE

Don’t be misled by the displayed disk capacity for your arrays. When Disk Administrator calculates disk capacity, it disregards redundancy storage used by the selected RAID level. The displayed and usable storage capacity for the array is, therefore, less than the total capacity of all drives in the array. For example, the displayed and usable array capacity for a RAID 5 array would be C(N-1), where N is the number of drives and C is the capacity of one drive. Likewise, for RAID 1 the capacity would be one-half the capacity of the two drives.

3.

Click

OK

to include the full disk in the partition (the default).

In the following example, Disk 1 has been partitioned and Disk Administrator assigned a temporary drive letter to the disk array.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 32

NOTE

Disk Administrator, Partitioned Disk Array

Do not partition a disk into separate drives. Microsoft Cluster Server Software will only manage one partition per disk.

4.

Repeat steps 1 through 3 to create a partition for each disk array to be shared by the cluster.

5.

From Disk Administrator’s

Partition

menu, choose

Commit Changes Now

, then choose

Yes

to save changes and

OK

when prompted.

NOTE

In the following example, Disk 2 has been partitioned and Disk Administrator assigned the next sequential letter to the disk array.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 33

Disk Administrator, All Disk Arrays Partitioned and Committed

Assign Drive Letters

Disk Administrator has assigned sequential and temporary drive letters to the disk arrays you partitioned.

You must assign a permanent (static) drive letter to each drive you want to make available to both Systems A and B.

NOTE

When partitioning logical drives with Windows NT the logical drive letters are sequentially assigned in a predefined sequence. These drive letters are temporary assignments that can change according to the drives installed in your system. For clustered systems it is critical that the drive letters for the shared storage drives be fixed.

Therefore, make sure that you assign permanent drive letters to the shared logical drives.

1.

Select one of the disks you just partitioned.

Disk Administrator highlights the selected disk.

2.

From the Disk Administrator’s

Tools

menu, choose

Assign Drive Letter

.

Disk Administrator displays the

Assign Drive Letter

dialog.

3.

In the dialog, select a drive letter, and click

OK

.

To avoid confusion later, HP recommends that you choose sequential drive letters. The example in this guide uses drive letters X and Y.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 34

Disk Administrator, Assigning Drive Letters

4.

Repeat steps 1 through 3 to assign a drive letter for each array to be shared in the cluster.

Format Logical Drives

1.

Click a disk box to select one of the arrays that you just partitioned and assigned a drive letter.

Disk Administrator highlights the selected disk.

2.

7 Microsoft Cluster Server Software Setup

During installation of Microsoft Cluster Server Software (MSCS) at System A, you will create a Microsoft

Cluster Server. Initially, it is a cluster with only one server (System A). Later, you will join System B to the cluster and thus create a standard two-server (node) cluster. If you need more information about the installation process outlined here, see the Microsoft Cluster Server Administrators Guide.

Install MSCS on System A

MSCS installation includes slightly different software setups for System A and System B. Since you just finished configuring arrays on System A, continue Microsoft Cluster Server Setup where you left off with

Disk Administrator.

To install MSCS at System A:

1.

Insert the Component CD of Microsoft Windows NT Server, Enterprise Edition in the CD-ROM drive of

System B.

2.

Run the Microsoft Cluster Server setup program.

Setup.exe is located in the following folder on the Component CD: \ mscs\cluster\i386

3.

Choose

Form a new cluster

and click

Next

.

Setup prompts you to identify the cluster by name.

4.

Type a name for the cluster. Make note of the name you type. You will need to provide the identical name during Microsoft Cluster Server software setup of System A. Click

Next

.

HP NetServer Installation Guide

Microsoft Cluster Administrator, Assigning a Cluster Name

37

5.

Setup prompts you for the location to store cluster files. Either accept the default or type a new location and click

Next

.

6.

Setup prompts you for the cluster domain account. Provide a user name and password for an appropriate

Microsoft Domain account for the cluster. Click

Next

.

NOTE

If you are unsure of the correct MS Domain account, consult the Windows NT documentation supplied with your system.

7.

Setup presents a two-column list of

Available unshared

and

Shared cluster disks

. Use the

Add

and

Remove

buttons to place the disks in the desired columns. Click

Next

.

Keep in mind that disks listed in the left column are reserved for the exclusive use of System B while disks listed in the right column are shared by both systems. Normally you would share all disks listed.

Microsoft Cluster Server Setup, Assigning Shared Disks to the Cluster

8.

Setup prompts you to select a disk (quorum disk) on which to store permanent cluster files. Cluster

Administrator uses the disk you select to store synchronizing information about Systems A and B. The disk must always be available to the cluster. Select the disk that you will commit to keeping online then click

Next

.

9.

Configure your LAN adapters.

Setup scans the System’s LAN adapters so they can be configured for cluster use and presents a dialog for each LAN adapter installed in your HP NetServer. Setup uses the IP address you specified during

NT installation. Type a

Network Name

for the LAN Adapter, and check

Enable for cluster use

.

HP recommends that you identify the LAN adapter according to use (for example, intra-cluster LAN).

When you enable cluster use setup gives you three options:

Use for all communications

Choose this option if you are configuring a client LAN adapter, and System A and B reside on the same IP subnet.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 38

NOTE

Use only for internal cluster communications

Choose this option if you are configuring an intra-cluster LAN adapter.

Use only for client access

Choose this option if you are configuring a client LAN adapter and System A and B reside on different IP subnets.

In this example, the intra-cluster LAN is shown first with the

Adapter Name

and

IP

Address already filled in. However, your configuration may display the Client LAN first.

Microsoft Cluster Server Setup, Assigning a Network Name to the intra-cluster LAN

10.

Repeat the previous step for each LAN adapter. After you have configured all LAN adapters, click

Next

.

11.

Setup lists your LAN adapters and asks you to prioritize them for internal communications between nodes. Move the Intra-cluster LAN to the top of the list so it has the highest priority. See the example dialog below.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 39

Microsoft Cluster Server Setup, Setting the LAN Priority

12.

Follow the on-screen instructions to order the adapters so that the intra-cluster LAN adapter is identified first (at the top of the list). After you have ordered the adapters click

Next

.

NOTE

If you previously defined the client IP addresses of Systems A and B as residing on different subnets, the client LAN will be unable to assume responsibility for intra-cluster communication.

13.

Setup prompts you for the Cluster IP address. Type the proper IP address and subnet mask for the

CLUSTER, then click

Next

.

NOTE

The previous step requires a unique IP address for the cluster. Do not use either of the IP addresses assigned to System A or System B.

14.

Click

Finish

to complete installation of the Microsoft Cluster Server software.

Setup activates your configuration specifications and starts the cluster service.

15.

Microsoft Cluster Server is now fully installed on System A. Reboot System A.

16.

To finish installation of the Microsoft Cluster Server, leave System A running, go to the next procedure and install MSCS on System B.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 40

Install MSCS on System B

While you have been configuring System A, System B has been idling at the Restart dialog.

1.

Click

Restart

to reboot System B to Windows NT.

2.

Insert the Component CD of Microsoft Windows NT Server (Enterprise Edition) in the CD-ROM drive of System B.

3.

Run the Microsoft Cluster Server setup program.

Setup.exe is located in the following folder on the Component CD: \ mscs\cluster\i386.

4.

Setup examines your system and displays a dialog that lists a number of install options including

Join an existing cluster

.

5.

Choose

Join an existing cluster

and click

Next

.

6.

Identify the cluster using the same name you used when you formed the cluster at System B.

Setup validates your entry by prompting you for the cluster domain account password.

7.

Type the password.

Setup prompts you to complete the installation upon entry of a valid password.

8.

Click

Finish

.

You have now installed and configured all necessary software and hardware components to create a

Microsoft Cluster Server.

9.

Reboot System B.

Install Service Pack or Hot Fix

After installing MSCS software your must either reinstall SP4 or if you installed SP 3, install the Hot Fix at this time.

Install Hot Fix

Install the Hot Fix (clusfixi.exe):

1.

If you have not already downloaded clusfixi.exe, see "Software" in part "1 What’s Needed."

2.

Install the Microsoft hotfix clusfixi.exe on System A and System B.

NOTE

When downloading the file, refer to the Microsoft readme file for instructions on installing the hotfix.

HP NetServer Installation Guide 41

8 Cluster Testing

There are two programs for testing the installed cluster. These programs are the Hardware Verification and

Labeling Utility and the Cluster Installation Test.

Hardware Verification and Labeling Utility

The Hardware Verification and Labeling Utility scans the system and checks system integrity before you perform system configuration. It helps you simplify the assembly process that must be performed while trying to setup a new product.

With this utility you can:

Create an asset inventory list

Check cabling connections

Label installed hardware

Health check hardware components

Obtain the Utility

The Hardware Verification and Labeling Utility is included on the HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM. You can run the test directly from the CD, or you can create a bootable floppy disk from HP NetServer

Navigator’s disk library. The floppy disk is bootable to ensure that it is independent of the customer’s network operating system. However, it does not include COMMAND.COM, so it is not usable as a DOS disk.

Run the Utility

CAUTION

The Hardware and Verification Utility is designed to run on a single HP NetServer and not a cluster. Therefore, to prevent corrupting the shared storage in your cluster, power down the cluster node (HP NetServer) not being tested when running this test.

If the system is booted from the HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM you will find that the utility does not appear as a direct menu choice. However, when the Configuration Assistant is run, you will be given the option of first running the Hardware Verification and Labeling Utility. This offer is only made the first time

Configuration Assistant is selected after a reboot.

The Hardware Verification and Labeling Utility is supplied with a README.TXT file. This file contains detailed information on the utility and instructions for setting up and running the utility.

Cluster Installation Test

The HP Cluster Installation Test (CIT) should be performed on your installed cluster before placing it online.

The CIT performs an operational failover test of the cluster to verify that if a node fails the operating node takes over all functions..

Obtain CIT

If you do not have CIT, see part "1 What’s Needed" for instructions to download this program.

Run CIT

Follow the instructions in the CIT program. If additional information is needed refer to CIT on-line help.

CIT help is context sensitive and has been expanded to provide detailed instructions for each step of the program.

12H Disk Array in a Windows NT cluster. The A5252B is an AHA-2944UW HBA customized with the necessary SCSI settings for the disk array, thus ensuring proper operation in a Windows NT cluster.

Disk arrays can be connected in a daisy chain fashion to each A5252B HBA. Refer to the Cluster Configuration

Guide for the recommended number of disk arrays that can be connected to each HBA.

Install the A5252B HBA in an available PCI slot following the instructions included with the HBA. Refer to the

Cluster Configuration Guide for information on which SPU I/O slot to use.

NOTE

The A5252B uses the standard Windows NT SCSI driver included with NT 4.0 Service

Pack 3, so it is not necessary to install an additional driver. Refer to the Cluster

Configuration Guide for more information.

Install Disk Modules

NOTE

To improve enclosure cooling and balance the load on the internal SCSI buses, the disk modules should be installed from left to right and from top to bottom. Disk module SCSI addresses are automatically preset by the backplane inside the disk array enclosure upon insertion.

CAUTION

The module lever must be pulled all the way out or the module will jam in the slot upon insertion. Also, always handle the disk modules carefully when they are out of the disk array enclosure, since they are susceptible to shock and vibration.

1.

Pull out the module lever.

2.

Insert the module into the disk array.

3.

Push in the module lever to lock the module in place.

Install Controller Batteries

The two battery packs included with the controller module must be installed before the controller module is installed in the disk array.

1.

Remove the battery cover latch and then remove the RFI shield (if necessary, you can use a flat-bladed screwdriver to remove the RFI shield).

2.

Install both battery packs, and connect the cables as shown in panel 4 of Figure 5.

3.

Reinstall the RFI shield and the battery cover latch.

CAUTION

Make sure you reinstall the battery cover latch carefully, so each of the locking tabs

(items 1 and 2 in panel 5 of Figure 5) slide beneath the battery compartment. If the battery cover latch is not secured properly, it could prevent the removal of the controller module once it is installed in the disk array enclosure.

Figure 5. Installing Controller Batteries

10

Install Controller Modules

CAUTION

Before installing a controller module, ensure that all of the pins on the controller connector are straight. Bent pins will cause the controller module to fail, and the array will not function properly. Also, do not attempt to install the controller module upsidedown.

1.

Pull the controller module levers all the way out.

2.

Insert the controller module into the disk array, while pushing on both sides of the controller module.

3.

When the enclosure engages the levers, press the center of the levers with the palm of your hand until they lock securely into place. You should hear an audible click when the levers lock.

Connecting Disk Array Power Cords

1.

Connect a power cord to each of the three power receptacles on the rear of the disk array.

2.

Plug the other end of the power cords into the cabinet power strips as shown in Figure 7.

NOTE

The disk array cannot operate on a single power supply; consequently, the disk array will shutdown if power to two of the power supplies is lost. However, by connecting the third power supply to a different power strip, the disk array will shut down properly if power is lost to the other two supplies. Connecting all three supplies to the same power strip will not allow the disk array to shutdown properly if power to the strip is lost.

4 Cluster Cabling and Setup

This section explains how to connect the disk array to the SCSI HBA installed in the server. It includes diagrams that illustrate connecting the SCSI cabling to ensure high availability. Cabling not restricted by the cluster configuration (video, keyboard, mouse, etc.) are not depicted in these diagrams. Refer to the HP

NetServer Rack Assembly and Cabling Reference Guide for additional information on cabling routing and connections.

Connecting SCSI Cables

Disk arrays can be connected in a daisy chain fashion to each A5252B SCSI HBA. Refer to the Cluster

Configuration Guide for the recommended number of disk arrays that can be connected to each HBA.

Figure 9 illustrates the cabling connections required when connecting a single disk array to the SCSI HBA.

Figure 10 illustrates the cabling connections required when connecting multiple disk arrays to the SCSI

HBA.

Two factors are vital in cabling a Microsoft NetServer Cluster.

Cables bundled with a clustered system dictate the stacking or arrangement of devices in the rack.

When defining your cluster using HP Rack Assistant a rack layout should have been printed. Lay out devices in the rack according to the Rack Assistant layout to ensure that all required cable connections can be made and the layout confirms to usability and safety standards.

Cabling a cluster requires that SCSI connections be made in a specific manner so that the appropriate redundancy and, therefore, high availability requirements are met. Use the diagrams included in this supplement or the diagrams in the Cluster Configuration Guide for your cluster configuration.

6 Shared Storage Software Setup

SureStore E Manager is an online management tool that allows you to monitor and manage your HP SureStore

E 12H Disk Array from a single network Windows client - either locally or remotely.

Once the SureStore E Manager is installed, use it to create the required logical drive structure on the disk array.

The NT Disk Administrator can then be used to create the array file systems.

Power Up the Disk Array

1.

Lift the power/standby switch door up, then press the power/standby switch to the power on (in) position.

2.

Wait for the control panel to display “Ready”, indicating that the disk array has successfully completed its initialization and is ready for use.

Install SureStore E Manager Software

Install the SureStore E Manager software on both servers.

1.

Insert the HP SureStore E on Windows NT CD into the CD-ROM drive. The setup program will start automatically.

2.

As you proceed through the setup, select the following options when prompted:

Select

Clustered Server Installation

option.

It is recommended that you use the default locations for the program files.

View the README file for the latest information on SureStore Manager

Share the SureStore Administrator folder to allow remote clients to manage the disk array

Make sure firmware revision HP26 is installed on the disk array. If an earlier version of firmware is installed on the disk array, download HP26 to the disk array. The HP26 firmware is included with the software.

CAUTION

Firmware version HP26 or later is required for proper operation on Windows NT.

Using an earlier version of firmware could result in possible data loss.

18

Set Up SureStore Manager

After installing the software, a few steps must be performed before you can begin managing the disk arrays.

This involves adding the disk arrays in the cluster to the Array List.

1.

From the Start menu, select

Programs|SureStore Manager|SureStore Manager

.

SureStore Manager begins looking for all SureStore E 12H disk arrays connected to the cluster. As disk arrays are identified, they are added to the Discovered Arrays in the Array List Edit dialog box. If both cluster servers are operating, each SureStore E 12H on your cluster will be displayed twice in the

Discovered Arrays box - once for each server. Any other SureStore E 12H disk arrays detected on the local network will also be displayed.

2.

Select the disk array you want to manage from the Discovered Arrays. You can select multiple arrays at once.

3.

Click the

<<<Add

button to move the disk array to the Monitored Arrays. Use the

<<<Add All

button if you want to manage all discovered disk arrays.

4.

Click

OK

. All the disk arrays you added are now displayed in the Array List window. There may be a delay as the status of each disk array is retrieved. Until the status is retrieved, each disk array is assigned a status of

UNKNOWN

.

Missing Disk Arrays

If a disk array connected to the cluster is not displayed in the Discovered Arrays, check the following:

Make sure the disk array is turned on and operating properly.

Make sure the disk array is properly connected to the servers. This includes proper termination of the SCSI bus.

Make sure there is at least one logical drive created on the disk array. A logical drive should have been created in Step 3 of the “Configure the Disk Array Using the Control Panel” procedure performed earlier.

19

Create Logical Drives

You can now begin creating logical drives on the disk array. Creating logical drives makes array capacity available to the operating system. Each logical drive appears to the host as a physical disk device. Defining the necessary logical drive structure for the cluster should have been done as part of the shared storage planning process.

1.

Select the disk array from the Array List window.

2.

Click the

Logical Drive

button on the toolbar.

3.

Click

Create...

to display the Create Logical Drive window. If there is no remaining unallocated capacity on the disk array, the

Create…

option will not be available.

4.

In the

Logical Drive Number

field, select the number of the new logical drive.

5.

In the

Logical Drive Size

field, enter the desired size of the logical drive.

6.

Click

Create

.

7.

Repeat these steps until you have created all the logical drives you need.

NOTE

During installation and configuration of the disk array hardware, logical drive 0 was created on the disk array. This logical drive is reserved for exclusive access by the

SureStore Manager software and should not be formatted or used for data storage.
