GALAXY XL OPERATIONAL FEATURES
The Galaxy XL‘s on-board RAID controllers offer true real-time
performance for DCC applications and provide data protection
in the event of a disk drive failure.

NOTE: During normal operation, the STATUS indicator will glow
GREEN. If a disk drive in the array should fail, the STATUS indicator
will begin to flash RED alerting the user that the system is now operating
in an “unprotected” mode. Work in progress can be completed in this
mode since the array will continue to operate as if nothing has happened.
If a second drive failure should occur while operating in the “unprotected”
mode, data stored on the array will be lost.
The “health” of a Galaxy XL disk array is indicated by the
STATUS indicator located on the front bezel of the unit
directly under the POWER indicator as shown in Figure 1
and Figure 3.
DISK DRIVE STATUS INDICATORS
Each disk drive module installed in Galaxy XL has an associated
status indicator located on the back of the unit as shown in
Figure 2 and Figure 4.
NOTE: Each “populated” channel of Galaxy XL Rack Mount U160 and
Galaxy XL Fibre Channel Rack Mount has a dedicated STATUS and
POWER indicator.
During normal operation, the disk drive status indicators
located on the rear of the unit will pulsate GREEN to indicate
normal disk activity. When operating in the “unprotected”
mode, the status indicator of the failed disk drive module will
glow RED.
The STATUS indicator has four states as described below:
GREEN – System OK (see note below)
AMBER (flashing) – Disk drive rebuild in progress.
RED (flashing) – A disk drive has failed in the system. (see
note below)
RED (solid) – RAID controller failure

Galaxy XL
RAID CONTROLLER STATUS INDICATOR
During normal operation, the STATUS indicator (Figure 2
and Figure 4) on the RAID controller module will glow
GREEN. If the controller should fail, the STATUS indicator
will glow RED.
POWER SUPPLY STATUS INDICATOR
During normal operation, the Power OK indicator (Figure 2
and Figure 4) located on the power supply module will glow
GREEN. If the power supply should fail, the Power OK
indicator will extinguish.
DISK DRIVE MODULE REPLACEMENT
In the event of a disk drive failure, Galaxy XL will continue to
operate but in a “unprotected” mode. In the “unprotected”
mode, the user can continue working, however, should another
drive become inoperable, data will be lost. It is important,
therefore to replace any failed disk drive module at the
user’s earliest convenience. Upon replacing the failed drive
module with a new module, Galaxy XL will automatically
reconstruct the array and return to a protected mode of
operation that is once again capable of sustaining a drive
failure without loss of data or functionality.
Drive Failure Notification – The STATUS indicator located
on the front bezel of Galaxy XL (Figure 1 and Figure 3) will
flash RED to alert the user that a disk drive has failed and the
system has shut down the bad drive. The specific drive that
has failed within the unit is indicated on the back of Galaxy
XL by a RED indicator light located next to the failed disk drive
module. (Figure 2 and Figure 4)
Follow the steps below to replace a failed Galaxy XL disk drive
module:
1. Power off your workstation.
GALAXY XL.
DO NOT POWER OFF
2. Remove the failed disk drive module (identified by a RED
indicator light) from the back of Galaxy XL by inserting
your finger into the indentation in the drive carrier and
sliding it in the direction of the arrow. The disk carrier
lever will pop out allowing the module to be pulled out of
the chassis as shown:
3. Insert a new disk drive module in place of the failed unit
by sliding the new module into the chassis until it engages
the lever. Lock the module into the chassis by snapping
the lever back in place.
4. The system will automatically begin to reconstruct the
data on the new disk module. Reconstruction will take
approximately 30 minutes for a 40 GB drive and one hour
for an 80 GB drive module. During reconstruction, both the
disk module indicator lights on the back of the unit and
the STATUS indicator on the front bezel will pulsate an
AMBER color. Allow the Galaxy XL to complete the
reconstruction process. Upon completion, all five disk
module indicator lights will glow solid GREEN.
5. Power on your workstation.
The Galaxy XL is now ready for use. The STATUS light on
the front bezel will change to GREEN indicating that Galaxy
XL is operating in a protected RAID mode once again.
RAID CONTROLLER MODULE REPLACEMENT
In the event of a RAID controller failure, the STATUS
indicator on the RAID controller module will change from
GREEN to RED. Follow the instructions below to replace a
failed RAID controller module.
1. Turn the thumbscrews located on the RAID controller
module (See Figure 2 or Figure 4) counterclockwise until
the controller is released. Grasp the thumbscrews and
gently slide out the controller module.
NOTE: It may be necessary to use a Philips #2 screwdriver to release
the thumbscrews initially. Always turn both thumbscrews simultaneously
to avoid skewing the controller.
2. Insert a new RAID controller module (component side
down). Turn the thumbscrews clockwise evenly to engage
the controller connection to the back plane to secure the
controller in place. It may be necessary to use a Philips #2
screwdriver to cinch the screws.
POWER SUPPLY MODULE REPLACEMENT
In the event of a power supply failure, the Power OK indicator
on the power supply module will extinguish. Follow the
instructions below to replace a failed power supply module:
1. Turn the thumbscrew located on the power supply module
(Figure 2 or Figure 4) counterclockwise until the power
supply module is released. Grasp the thumbscrew and
gently slide out the power supply module.
2. Insert the new power supply module. Make sure the
connector is fully mated to the connector on the back
plane. Turn the thumbscrew clockwise to secure the
power supply in place.
WARNING! Be absolutely certain that you only remove
the failed disk drive module in this step. Removing any
other drive module will result in data loss.

NOTE: This will create one large Mac OS Extended partition on the
Galaxy XL disk array. You can make multiple partitions on the array if
you prefer. If you are using Mac OS 8.1 or above, we recommend that
you format the Galaxy XL disk array with Mac OS Extended format (also
known as HFS Plus). Mac OS Extended Format greatly increases the
efficiency of larger hard disk volumes such as the Galaxy XL disk array.
However, Mac OS Extended partitions cannot be read by computers that
use Mac OS 8 or earlier.
Features of Mac OS Extended Format include:
• Increases the maximum size of a file to two terabytes (2 TB).
• Increases the maximum number of files you can save to at least
250,000 on a 1 GB volume, 500,000 on a 4 GB volume,
1,250,000 on a 10 GB volume, and correspondingly more on
larger volumes.
• Decreases the minimum size of a file (The minimum size ranges
from 512 bytes to 4,000 bytes, depending on the size of the
volume).
