High availability

The following features contribute to the DC SAN Director high-availability design:

• Redundant, hot-swappable blades and FRUs

• Enhanced data integrity on all data paths

• Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF) re-routing around failed links

• Integration with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) managers

• Automatic CP failover

• Non-disruptive “hot” software code loads and activation

• Easy configuration, save, and restore

• Hot-swappable World Wide Name (WWN) cards

The high-availability software architecture of the DC SAN Director provides a common framework for all applications that reside on the system, allowing global and local states to be maintained through any component failure. High-availability elements consist of the High Availability Manager, the heartbeat, the fault/health framework, the replicated database, initialization, and software upgrade.

The High Availability Manager controls access to the standby CP blade, facilitates software upgrades, prevents extraneous switchover activity, closes and flushes streams, provides flow control and message buffering, and supports a centralized active and standby state.

Reliability

The DC SAN Director uses the following error detection and correction mechanisms to ensure reliability of data:

• Data is protected by the Error Detection and Correction mechanism, which checks for encoder errors and fault isolation (EDFI), such as cyclic redundancy checking (CRC), parity checking, checksum, and illegal address checking

• Power-on self-test (POST)

• Dual CP Blades that enable hot, non-disruptive fast firmware upgrades

• Each CP Blade contains one serial port and two Ethernet ports, for management and for service.

Offline CP Blade diagnostics and remote diagnostics simplify troubleshooting. The standby CP

Blade monitors diagnostics to ensure it is operational, in case a failover is required.

• Bus monitoring and control of blades and other FRUs

Serviceability

The DC SAN Director provides the following features to enhance and ensure serviceability:

• Modular design with hot-swappable components

• Flash memory that stores two firmware images per CP Blade

• USB port on CP blades for all tasks that formerly required an FTP/SCP server, including software and firmware upgrades

• Non-volatile random-access memory (NVRAM), containing the serial number, serial number, revision information, and part number information

• Background health-check daemon

• Memory scrubber, self test, and bus ping to determine if a bus is not functioning

• RASlog messages

24 HP StorageWorks DC SAN Backbone Director Switch Overview

• SMI-S compliant

• Watchdog timers

• Status LEDs

• Predictive diagnostics analysis through Fabric Watch

• SNMP (including version 3) integration with higher-layer managers

Software features

The Fabric OS allows any Fibre Channel-compliant device to attach to the switches as long as it conforms to the device login, name service, and related FC standards. Each operating environment requires that a FC Host Bus Adapter (HBA) be available with a standards-compliant driver for correct interface to the fabric.

Fabric OS consists of a set of embedded applications running on top of an embedded Linux operating system kernel. These applications include:

• Name server

• Alias server

• Zone server

• Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent

• SMI-S compliant API

• Syslog auditing

• Reliable Commit Service (RCS)

• Network Time Protocol (NTP)

• Tasks to manage address assignment, routing, link initialization, fabric initialization, link shutdown,

DC SAN Director shutdown, and the user interface

Network manageability

The DC SAN Director has a single domain and is managed as a single element with the optional

Fabric Manager (FM) Graphical User Interface (GUI) application. The DC SAN Director responds to its own IP address and appears as a separate entity to the Telnet protocol and SNMP.

All management interfaces, such as Telnet, Web Tools, standards compliant SMI-S, and Management

Server, support a “port N within blade M” naming scheme.

The DC SAN Director supports SNMPv1 and SNPMv3. When SNMP devices send SNMP messages to a management console running SAN management software, the information is stored in a

Management Information Base (MIB). Fabric OS 6.x supports the latest Fibre Alliance Fibre Channel

Management (FCMGMT) and Storage Management Initiative (SMI) MIBs. These MIBs provide the

SAN administrator with information for monitoring the network. Refer to the Fabric OS MIB

ReferenceGuide .

Powering on the DC SAN Director

To power on the DC SAN Director:

CAUTION:

Use the supplied power cords. Ensure the facility power receptacle is the correct type, supplies the required voltage, and is properly grounded.

1.

Connect the AC power cords to the power supply assemblies. One to four power cords are required depending on electrical service.

2.

Connect the power cords to a power source with voltage of 200 to 240 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz

(normally two power cords) or to a power source with voltage of 110 to 120 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz

(two to four power cords).

TIP:

Use of the high-voltage line (200 to 240 VAC) is highly recommended due to better power-conversion efficiency

3.

Turn the AC power switches on the power supplies to ON (I). The AC power switches light green when switched on and power is supplied.

4.

The DC SAN Director performs a Power-on Self-Test (POST) each time it is powered on. POST takes approximately 10 minutes and is complete when indicator light activity indicates the operational state. For information about LED patterns, see

“ Monitoring DC Director system components ” on page 57.

You can bypass POST by using the fastBoot

command. You can also disable POST for successive reboots on the DC SAN Director using the diagDisablePost

command.

NOTE:

To prevent a potential IP address conflict, do not connect the DC SAN Director to the network until the IP addresses are configured. See “ DC Director log in and configuration ” on page 49.

Port numbering

The DC SAN Director uses the following port numbering method (see

“ Port numbering templates ” on page 239).

IMPORTANT:

Slots are numbered 1 through 12, from left to right when facing the port side of the DC SAN Director.

Control Processor blades (CP8) can be installed only in slots 6 and 7. Core switch blades (CR8) can be installed only in slots 5 and 8.

• FC8-16 port blade—ports are numbered from 0 through 15 from bottom to top.

42 DC SAN Director Installation

• FC8-32 port blade—ports are numbered from 0 through 15 from bottom to top on the left set of ports and 16 through 31 from bottom to top on the right set of ports.

• FC8-48 port blade—ports are numbered from 0 through 23 from bottom to top on the left set of ports and 24 through 47 from bottom to top on the right set of ports.

• FC10-6 port blade—ports are numbered from 0 through 5 from bottom to top.

• FR4-18i router blade—the sixteen physical FC ports on this blade are numbered 0 through 15 from bottom to top. The two GbE ports are numbered from the bottom as Ge0 and Ge1. These ports, when fully configured, enable sixteen VE_Ports or VEX _Ports and appear in the switchShow command as ports 16 through 31.

Managing cables

The cable management comb (see Figure 1 on page 21) is attached to the chassis under the chassis door and allows for simple cable management. The comb can be installed without service disruption.

Route cables down in front of the blades to keep LEDs visible. Leave at least one meter of slack for each fiber optic cable to provide room to remove and replace blades.

IMPORTANT:

Do not route the cables in front of the air exhaust vent, which is located at the top of the port side of the chassis.

If ISL Trunking is in use, group the cables by trunking group. The ports are color-coded to indicate which ports can be used in the same ISL Trunking group: eight ports marked with solid black ovals alternate with eight ports marked with oval outlines. See Table 52 on page 222 for a listing of supported cable speeds and distances.

Using the optional HP StorageWorks DC SAN Director

Inter-Chassis Link (ICL) cable kit

You can purchase the optional HP StorageWorks DC SAN Director Inter-Chassis Link (ICL) cable kit,

HP part number AK862A. The kit increases the number of ports by interconnecting two DC SAN

Director chassis.

The ICL cables and the ICL connectors (see Figure 10 ) are color-coded and labeled for ease of installation.

Figure 11 through Figure 14 show the acceptable cabling configurations for the option. Connect the

ICL cables in one of the configurations shown.

NOTE:

Connect the cables from the top connectors (ICL 1) of the CR8 blades in the first chassis to the bottom connectors (ICL 0) of the CR8 blades in the second chassis. Similarly, connect the cables from the bottom connectors (ICL 0) of the CR8 blades in the first chassis to the top connectors (ICL 1) of the

CR8 blades in the second chassis.

The cables can cross between the slot 5 CR8 blade and the slot 8 CR8 blade as long as the top-to-bottom rule is followed.

3 DC SAN Director log in and configuration

This chapter provides the following information:

• “ Configuration overview ” on page 49

• “ Establishing a serial connection and log on to the DC SAN Director ” on page 49

• “ Configuring IP addresses ” on page 51

• “ Establishing an Ethernet connection ” on page 52

• “ Customizing a switch name ” on page 53

• “ Setting the domain ID ” on page 53

• “ Verifying the Port Identifier mode and connecting to the fabric ” on page 54

• “ Enable software licenses ” on page 54

• “ Back up the configuration ” on page 55

Configuration overview

The DC SAN Director must be configured before it is connected to the fabric. All configuration commands must be entered through the active CP blade. The DC SAN Director configuration includes the following parameters:

• IP address and subnet mask for the chassis

• IP addresses, host names, subnet masks, and gateway addresses for both CP blades

• Switch name

• Domain ID for the DC SAN Director (optional)

• WWN for the DC SAN Director

The DC SAN Director WWN is initially set by the factory to match the license ID (which is based on the chassis serial number). The WWN can be changed but the license ID cannot be modified.

The configuration information is mirrored to the standby CP blade, which allows the current configuration to remain available even if the active CP blade fails. The configuration information for the DC SAN Director is stored in the WWN cards and the flash memory of the CP blades. The configuration can be backed up to a workstation (uploaded) and then downloaded to the active CP blade if necessary.

Establishing a serial connection and log on to the DC SAN

Director

To establish a serial connection and log on to the DC SAN Director:

1.

Verify that the DC SAN Director is powered on and that POST is complete by verifying that all power LED indicators on the port, control processor, and core switch blades display a steady green light.

HP StorageWorks DC and DC04 SAN Backbone Director Switches 49

2.

Remove the shipping cap from the SERVICE port on the active CP. Use the serial cable provided with the DC SAN Director to connect the SERVICE port on the active CP to a computer workstation.

The active CP blade is indicated by an illuminated (blue) LED.

NOTE:

The SERVICE port is intended primarily for the initial setting of the IP address and for service purposes.

3.

Access the DC SAN Director using a terminal emulator application (such as HyperTerminal in a

Windows environment or TERM in a UNIX environment).

4.

Disable any serial communication programs running on the workstation (such as synchronization programs).

5.

Open the terminal emulator application and configure as follows:

For most MS Windows systems:

Bits per second—9600

Verifying the Port Identifier mode and connecting to the fabric

Before connecting the DC SAN Director to the fabric, verify that the port identifier (PID) mode on the

DC SAN Director matches the other switches in the fabric. This parameter must be identical for all switches in the fabric and is set using the configure

command.

To connect the DC SAN Director to the fabric:

1.

Add SFP optical transceivers (or XFP optical transceivers with FC10-6 port card installed) and cables to the fibre channel ports.

The ports are color-coded to indicate which can be used in the same port group for trunking.

(Trunking port groups can be up to 8 ports). The ports and cables used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements. Refer to the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 6.x administrator guide .

2.

Position one of the optical transceivers so that the key is oriented correctly to the port. Insert the transceiver into the port until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks.

Transceivers are keyed so that they can only be inserted with the correct orientation. If a transceiver does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

3.

Position a cable so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with the slot in the transceiver. Insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism clicks.

Cables are keyed so that they can be inserted in only one way. If a cable does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

4.

Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the remaining ports.

5.

Organize the cables (see “ Managing cables ” on page 43).

6.

Verify DC SAN Director and port status using the switchShow

command.

7.

Verify fabric connectivity using the fabricShow

command.

Enable software licenses

Depending on the model purchased, certain licenses are factory installed on the DC SAN Director.

To determine which licenses are enabled, use the licenseShow

command.

swDir:admin> licenseshow

AAbbccDDeeFFeeGG:

Web license

Zoning license

Extended Fabric license

Fabric Watch license

Performance Monitor license

Trunking license

Security license

In this example, the license key is

AAbbccDDeeFFeeGG

. Keep a copy of the license key for reference.

The 64-bit chassis ID is required to obtain and activate licenses for the DC SAN Director. The chassis

ID is available through the licenseIdShow

command. The licenseShow

and licenseIdShow commands must be typed through the active CP blade. Refer to the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 6.2.x

administrator guide .

54 DC SAN Director log in and configuration

Back up the configuration

Save all key configuration data for the DC SAN Director, including license key information, and upload it to a host for reference. Routine backups of the configuration are recommended to ensure that the current configuration is available.

After zoning configurations and other changes are complete, back up the configuration by typing configUpload

at the prompt. This command uploads the DC SAN Director configuration to the server so that it is available for downloading to a replacement DC SAN Director.

An easy way to back up configuration information is to enable logging on your Telnet session, and then run the following commands and save the output in a file on a secure host.

• configShow

• ipaddrShow

• licenseShow

• switchShow

Keep copies of key data such as passwords, license keys, and IP addresses in a secure location.

NOTE:

Passwords are not saved in the configuration file, and are not uploaded during a configUpload

.

Remote CP (Slot 6, CP0) : Standby, Healthy

HA Enabled, Heartbeat Up, HA State Synchronized

3.

Enter all remaining commands from the serial console for the active CP blade, unless otherwise indicated. For more information about commands, refer to the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 6.x

administrator guide

80 Replacing DC SAN Director field-replaceable units (FRUs)

4.

If the functioning CP blade is performing as the active CP blade, go to step 5. If the faulty CP blade is performing as the active CP blade, failover the blades: a.

Login to the faulty CP blade as admin, using either a Telnet or a serial console connection.

If you connect successfully to the faulty CP, continue to step 4b.

If you cannot connect to the faulty CP, remove the faulty CP blade for repair as follows:

• Turn the CP blade off and notify the DC SAN Director of a hot swap request by sliding the slider switch in the top ejector down to the off position (see Figure 30 ).

• Wait until the active CP LED on the functioning CP blade is lit, and then remove the CP blade.

b.

Type haFailover . The functioning CP blade becomes the active CP blade.

c.

Wait until the status LED on the functioning CP blade is no longer lit.

d.

Type haShow from the functioning CP blade (the new active CP blade) to verify the failover.

This is an example of failing over a CP blade:

Fabric OS (cp1) cp1 login: admin

Password: swDir:admin> hashow

Local CP (Slot 7, CP1): Active

Remote CP (Slot 6, CP0): Standby, Healthy

HA enabled, Heartbeat Up, HA State synchronized swDir:admin> hafailover

Local CP (Slot 7, CP1): Active

Remote CP (Slot 6, CP0): Standby, Healthy

HA enabled, Heartbeat Up, HA State synchronized

Warning: This command is being run on a redundant control processor(CP) system. If the above status does not indicate

'HA State synchronized', then the CPs are not synchronized and this operation will cause the active CP to reset. This will cause disruption to devices attached to both switch 0 and switch 1 and will require that existing Telnet sessions be restarted. To reboot a single logical switch on this system, use the switchreboot command while logged in to that logical switch.

Are you sure you want to fail over to the standby CP [y/n]?

swDir:admin> haShow

Reconnecting to the network and the fabric

See the cable routing information that was recorded in Table 20 on page 110 for the following steps:

1.

Connect the CP blades to the local area network: a.

Insert the appropriate Ethernet cables into each Ethernet port.

b.

Connect the other ends to an Ethernet 10/100 Base-T LAN, if not already connected.

WARNING!

The DC SAN Director can be accessed by remote connection using any of the available management tools, such as Telnet or Web Tools. Ensure that the DC SAN Director is not modified using other connections during the rest of this procedure.

2.

Reconnect the transceivers and cables to the port blades:

NOTE:

The ports and cables used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements. For a list of these requirements, refer to the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 6.2.x administrator guide.

a.

Position one of the transceivers so that the key is oriented correctly to the port and insert the transceiver into the port until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks.

b.

Select the cable that corresponds to the port and position it so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with the slot in the transceiver; then, insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism clicks.

c.

Repeat step 2a and step 2b for the remaining ports.

TIP:

Do not route cables in front of the air exhaust vent (located on the upper port side of the chassis).

d.

Organize the cables as required.

Hardware components

The DC04 SAN Director features a modular and scalable mechanical construction that allows a wide range of flexibility in installation, fabric design, and maintenance. The chassis may be mounted with the cables facing the front of the equipment rack or to the rear.

NOTE:

The chassis should be mounted with the air intake (non-port side) mounted towards the cool air aisle, not towards the aisle where heated exhaust air is coming from other components.

The DC04 SAN Director chassis consists of the following:

• Up to four hot-swappable port blade assemblies that can be configured in a single chassis, delivering up to 192 Fibre Channel ports.

• Two slots for CP blades (CP8):

• A single active CP8 blade can control all 192 ports in the chassis.

• The standby CP8 blade assumes control of the DC04 SAN Director if the active CP fails.

• Two slots for core switch blades (CR4S-8):

• The CR4S-8 blade interconnects all Director blades.

• Two ICL connectors per blade to connect to another DC04 SAN Director chassis or to a DC

SAN Director.

• Both CR4S-8 blades are active.

• Modular hot-swappable Director blades:

• 16-port, 8-Gb/s blades (FC8-16)

• 32-port, 8-Gb/s blades (FC8-32)

• 48-port, 8-Gb/s blades (FC8-48)

High availability

The following features contribute to the DC04 SAN Director's high-availability design:

• Redundant, hot-swappable CP8 and CR4S-8 blades and FRUs

• Enhanced data integrity on all data paths

• Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF) re-routing around failed links

• Integration with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) managers

• Automatic CP and core blade failover

• Non-disruptive “hot” software code loads and activation

• Easy configuration, save, and restore

• Hot-swappable World Wide Name (WWN) cards

The high-availability software architecture of the DC04 SAN Director provides a common framework for all applications that reside on the system, allowing global and local states to be maintained through any component failure. High-availability elements consist of the High Availability Manager, the heartbeat, the fault/health framework, the replicated database, initialization, and software upgrade.

The High Availability Manager controls access to the standby CP blade, facilitates software upgrades, prevents extraneous switchover activity, closes and flushes streams, provides flow control and message buffering, and supports a centralized active and standby state.

Reliability

The DC04 SAN Director uses the following error detection and correction mechanisms to ensure reliability of data:

• Data protected by the Error Detection and Correction mechanism, which checks for encoder errors and fault isolation (EDFI), such as cyclic redundancy checking (CRC), parity checking, checksum, and illegal address checking

• Power-on self-test (POST)

• Dual CP Blades that enable hot, non-disruptive fast firmware upgrades

• Each CP Blade containing one serial port and two Ethernet ports, for management and for service.

• Standby CP Blade to monitor diagnostics to ensure it is operational, in case a failover is required.

• Offline CP Blade diagnostics and remote diagnostics to simplify troubleshooting

• Bus monitoring and control of blades and other FRUs

HP StorageWorks DC and DC04 SAN Backbone Director Switches 119

Serviceability

The DC04 SAN Director provides the following features to enhance and ensure serviceability:

• Modular design with hot-swappable components

• Flash memory that stores two firmware images per CP Blade

• USB port on CP blades for all tasks that formerly required an FTP/SCP server, including software and firmware upgrades.

• Redesigned cable management using vertical fingers to accommodate the horizontal orientation of the blades.

• Non-volatile random-access memory (NVRAM), containing the serial number, serial number, revision information, and part number information.

• Background health-check daemon

• Memory scrubber, self test, and bus ping to determine if a bus is not functioning

• RASlog messages

• SMI-S compliant

• Watchdog timers

• Status LEDs

• Predictive diagnostics analysis through Fabric Watch

• SNMP (including version 3) integration with higher-layer managers

Software features

The Fabric OS allows any Fibre Channel-compliant device to attach to the switches as long as it conforms to the device login, name service, and related FC standards. Each operating environment requires that an FC Host Bus Adapter (HBA) be available with a standards-compliant driver for correct interface to the fabric.

Fabric OS consists of a set of embedded applications running on top of an embedded Linux operating system kernel. These applications include:

• Name server

• Alias server

• Zone server

• SNMP agent

• SMI-S compliant API

• Syslog auditing

• Reliable Commit Service (RCS)

• Network Time Protocol (NTP)

• Tasks to manage address assignment, routing, link initialization, fabric initialization, link shutdown,

DC04 SAN Director shutdown, and the user interface.

Powering on the DC04 SAN Director

CAUTION:

Use the power cords supplied. Ensure that the facility power receptacle is the correct type, supplies the required voltage, and is properly grounded.

To power on the DC04 SAN Director:

1.

Connect the AC power cords to the power supply assemblies. One to four power cords are required, depending on electrical service.

2.

Connect the power cords to a power source with voltage of 200 to 240 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz

(normally two power cords) or to a power source with voltage of 110 to 120 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz

(two to four power cords).

TIP:

Use of the high-voltage line (200 to 240 VAC) is highly recommended due to better power-conversion efficiency

138 DC04 SAN Director Installation

3.

Turn the AC power switches on the power supplies to ON (I). The AC power switches light green when switched on and power is supplied.

4.

The DC04 SAN Director performs a Power-on Self-Test (POST) each time it is powered on. POST takes approximately 10 minutes and is complete when the indicator light activity indicates the operational state. For information about LED patterns, see Table 30 on page 159.

You can bypass POST by using the fastBoot

command. You can also disable POST for successive reboots on the DC04 SAN Director using the diagDisablePost

command.

NOTE:

To prevent a potential IP address conflict, do not connect the DC04 SAN Director to the network until the IP addresses are configured. See “ Configuring IP addresses ” on page 147.

Port numbering

The DC04 SAN Director uses the following port numbering method (see

“ Port numbering templates ” on page 239).

IMPORTANT:

Slots are numbered 1 through 8, from bottom to top. Control processor blades (CP8) can be installed only in slots 4 and 5. Core switch blades (CR4S-8) can be installed only in slots 3 and 6.

• FC8-16 port blade—Ports are numbered from 0 through 15 from left to right.

• FC8-32 port blade—Ports are numbered from 0 through 15 from left to right on the bottom set of ports and 16 through 31 from left to right on the top set of ports.

• FC8-48 port blade—Ports are numbered from 0 through 23 from left to right on the bottom set of ports and 24 through 47 from bottom to top on the top set of ports.

• FC10-6 port blade—Ports are numbered from 0 through 5 from left to right.

• FR4-18i router blade—The sixteen physical FC ports on this blade are numbered 0 through 15 from left to right. The two GbE ports are numbered from the bottom as Ge0 and Ge1. These ports, when fully configured, enable sixteen VE_Ports or VEX _Ports and appear in the switchShow command as ports 16 through 31.

Managing cables

NOTE:

The minimum bend radius for a 50 micron cable is 2 in. under full tensile load and 1.2 in. with no tensile load.

A pair of vertical cable management finger assemblies provide routing paths to prevent cables from hanging down in front of other blades. See Figure 48 .

Follow these cabling recommendations:

• Leave at least 1 m (3.28 ft) of slack for each port cable. This provides room to remove and replace the switch.

HP StorageWorks DC and DC04 SAN Backbone Director Switches 139

• If ISL Trunking is used, group the cables by trunking group. The ports are color-coded to indicate which ports can be used in the same ISL Trunking group: eight ports marked with solid black ovals alternate with eight ports marked with oval outlines.

• For easier maintenance, label the fiber optic cables and record the devices to which they are connected.

• Route the cables to both the left and right sides of the switch through the cable management fingers.

• Route port cables and other cables away from the LEDs to ensure that the LEDs are visible.

Figure 48 Vertical cable management finger assemblies

Using the optional HP StorageWorks DC SAN Director

Inter-Chassis Link (ICL) cable kit

You can purchase the optional HP StorageWorks DC SAN Director Inter-Chassis Link (ICL) cable kit,

HP part number AK862A. The kit increases the number of ports by interconnecting two DC04 SAN

Director chassis, or a DC04 SAN Director and a DC SAN Director.

The ICL cables and the ICL connectors (see Figure 49 ) are color-coded and labeled for ease of installation.

Connect the ICL cables in one of the configurations shown in Figure 50 and Figure 51 .

NOTE:

Because the blades in the DC04 SAN Director are installed horizontally, the usual top-to-bottom orientation becomes a left-to-right orientation.

1.

Connect the cables from the left (top) connectors (ICL 1) of the CR4S-8 blades in the first chassis to the right (bottom) connectors (ICL 0) of the CR4S-8 blades in the second chassis.

140 DC04 SAN Director Installation

2.

Similarly, connect the cables from the right (bottom) connectors (ICL 0) of the CR4S-8 blades in the first chassis to the left (top) connectors (ICL 1) of the CR4S-8 blades in the second chassis.

IMPORTANT:

The cables can cross between the slot 3 CR4S-8 blade on the first chassis and the slot 6

CR4S-8 blade on the second chassis as long as the left-to-right (top-to-bottom) rule is followed.

• “ Backing up the configuration ” on page 152

Configuration overview

The DC04 SAN Director must be configured before it is connected to the fabric. All configuration commands must be entered through the active CP blade. The DC04 SAN Director configuration includes the following parameters:

• IP address and subnet mask for the chassis

• IP addresses, host names, subnet masks, and gateway addresses for both CP blades

• Switch name

• Domain ID for the DC04 SAN Director (optional)

• WWN for the DC04 SAN Director

The DC04 SAN Director WWN is initially set by the factory to match the license ID (which is based on the chassis serial number). The WWN can be changed but the license ID cannot be modified.

The configuration information is mirrored to the standby CP blade, which allows the current configuration to remain available even if the active CP blade fails. The configuration information for the DC04 SAN Director is stored in the WWN cards and the flash memory of the CP blades. The configuration can be backed up to a workstation (uploaded) and then downloaded to the active CP blade if necessary.

Establishing a serial connection and logging on to the DC04

SAN Director

To establish a serial connection and log on to the DC04 SAN Director:

HP StorageWorks DC and DC04 SAN Backbone Director Switches 149

Setting the date and time

The date and time settings are used for logging events. Switch operation does not depend on the date and time; a switch with an incorrect date and time value still functions properly. However, because the date and time are used for logging, error detection, and troubleshooting, they should be set correctly.

Setting the date

To set the date:

1.

If necessary, log on to the DC04 SAN Director by Telnet, using the admin

account.

2.

Enter the date

command, using the following syntax: date "mmddHHMMyy"

Where:

• mm

is the month; valid values are 01 through 12

• dd

is the date; valid values are 01 through 31

HH

is the hour; valid values are 00 through 23

MM

is minutes; valid values are 00 through 59

• yy

is the year; valid values are 00 through 99 (values greater than 69 are interpreted as

1970 through 1999, and values less than 70 are interpreted as 2000-2069)

For example: switch:admin> date

Fri Sep 26 17:01:48 UTC 2008 switch:admin> date "0926123008"

Fri Sep 26 12:30:00 UTC 2008 switch:admin>

Setting the time zone

To set the time zone:

1.

If necessary, log on to the DC04 SAN Director by Telnet, using the admin

account.

2.

Enter the tsTimeZone

command as follows: switch:admin> tstimezone

[-interactive ]/ [, timezone_fmt ]

The following example shows how to change the time zone to US/Mountain.

switch:admin> tstimezone

Time Zone : US/Pacific switch:admin> tstimezone US/Mountain switch:admin> tstimezone

Time Zone : US/Mountain

150 DC04 SAN Director log in and configuration

Synchronizing local time

To synchronize the local time of the principal or primary switch with that of an external NTP server, follow these steps.

1.

If necessary, log on to the DC04 SAN Director by Telnet, using the admin

account.

2.

Enter the tsClockServer

command as follows: switch:admin> tsClockServer

“<ntp1;ntp2>” where ntp1 is the IP address or DNS name of the first NTP server, which the switch must be able to access. The variable ntp2

is the second NTP server and is optional. The operand

“<ntp1;ntp2>”

is optional; by default, this value is

LOCL

, which uses the local clock of the principal or primary switch as the clock server.

The tsClockServer

command accepts multiple server addresses in either IPv4, IPv6, or DNS name formats. When multiple NTP server addresses are passed, tsclockserver

sets the first obtainable address as the active NTP server. The rest will be stored as backup servers that can take over if the active NTP server fails. The principal or primary FCS switch synchronizes its time with the NTP server every 64 seconds.

The following example shows how to change the time zone to US/Mountain.

switch:admin> tsclockserver

LOCL switch:admin> tsclockserver "132.163.135.131" switch:admin> tsclockserver

132.163.135.131 switch:admin>

Verifying the Port Identifier mode and connecting to the fabric

Before connecting the DC04 SAN Director to the fabric, verify that the port identifier (PID) mode on the DC04 SAN Director matches the other switches in the fabric. This parameter must be identical for all switches in the fabric and is set using the configure

command.

To connect the DC04 SAN Director to the fabric:

1.

Add SFP optical transceivers (or XFP optical transceivers with FC10-6 port card installed) and cables to the fibre channel ports.

The ports are color-coded to indicate which can be used in the same port group for trunking.

(Trunking port groups can be up to 8 ports). The ports and cables used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements. Refer to the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 6.2.x administrator guide .

2.

Position one of the optical transceivers so that the key is oriented correctly to the port. Insert the transceiver into the port until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks.

Transceivers are keyed so that they can only be inserted with the correct orientation. If a transceiver does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

3.

Position a cable so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with the slot in the transceiver. Insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism clicks.

Cables are keyed so that they can be inserted in only one way. If a cable does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

4.

Repeat steps1 through 3 for the remaining ports.

HP StorageWorks DC and DC04 SAN Backbone Director Switches 151

5.

Organize the cables (see “ Managing cables ” on page 139).

6.

Verify DC04 SAN Director and port status using the switchShow

command.

7.

Verify fabric connectivity using the fabricShow

command.

Enabling software licenses

Depending on the model purchased, certain licenses are factory installed on the DC04 SAN Director.

To determine which licenses are enabled, use the licenseShow

command.

swDir:admin> licenseshow

AAbbccDDeeFFeeGG:

Web license

Zoning license

Extended Fabric license

Fabric Watch license

Performance Monitor license

Trunking license

Security license

In this example, the license key is

AAbbccDDeeFFeeGG

. Keep a copy of the license key for reference.

The 64-bit chassis ID is required to obtain and activate licenses for the DC04 SAN Director. The chassis ID is available through the licenseIdShow

command. The licenseShow

and licenseIdShow

commands must be typed through the active CP blade. Refer to the HP StorageWorks

Fabric OS 6.2.x administrator guide .

Backing up the configuration

Save all key configuration data for the DC04 SAN Director, including license key information, and upload it to a host for reference. Routine backups of the configuration are recommended to ensure that the current configuration is available.

After zoning configurations and other changes are complete, back up the configuration by typing configUpload

at the prompt. This command uploads the DC04 SAN Director configuration to the server so that it is available for downloading to a replacement DC04 SAN Director.

An easy way to back up configuration information is to enable logging on your Telnet session, and then run the following commands and save the output in a file on a secure host.

• configShow

• ipaddrShow

• licenseShow

• switchShow

Keep copies of key data such as passwords, license keys, and IP addresses in a secure location.

NOTE:

Passwords are not saved in the configuration file, and are not uploaded during a configUpload

.

This appendix provides information for the following blades:

• “ B-Series MP Router blade (FR4-18i) overview ” on page 223

B-Series MP Router blade (FR4-18i) overview

NOTE:

The B-Series MP Router blade (FR4-18i) is used in the DC SAN Director and the DC04 SAN Director.

The optional B-Series MP Router blade (FR4-18i) integrates sixteen physical Fibre Channel SFP ports supporting the Fibre Channel Routing Services, and two physical Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) SFP ports supporting the Fibre Channel Over IP (FCIP) feature. It operates with the Fabric Operating System and can communicate with another FR4-18i or an HP 400 Multi-protocol (MP) Router for both Fibre

Channel Routing services and FCIP, or an HP Multi-protocol (MP) Router for Fibre Channel Routing

Services.

The FR4-18i blade is intended as a platform for Fibre Channel Routing Services and FCIP. Refer to the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 6.2.x administrator guide for information on configuring these features.

The FR4-18i blade provides the following features:

• Sixteen Fibre Channel SFP ports supporting the Fibre Channel Routing Services with link speeds up to 1-, 2-, or 4 Gb/s.

• 2 GbE ports supporting the FCIP and Fibre Channel Routing Services with link speeds up to 1Gb/s:

• Each GbE port can support up to eight FCIP tunnels

• Each FCIP tunnel is represented and managed as a virtual Fibre Channel E_Port

• Fibre Channel Routing Services can be used over the FCIP link

• Fabrics connected through FCIP merge if the ports are configured as VE_Ports, and do not merge if they are configured as VEX_Ports. If VE_Ports are used in a Fibre Channel Routing

Services backbone fabric configuration, then the backbone fabric merges, but the EX_Port-attached edge fabrics do not merge. For more information Refer to the HP StorageWorks Fabric

OS 6.x administrator guide .

Configuring FCIP and Fibre Channel Routing Services and enable the ports

The ports on the FR4-18i blade are initially set to persistently disabled.

If you want to enable the FC ports as a standard E_Port or F_port use the portcfgpersistentenable

command to enable the ports.

If you are using the FC ports as EX_Ports you must configure the Fibre Channel Routing Services feature prior to enabling the ports.

The GbE ports can only be used once you have configured FCIP and enabled the VE_Ports.

See the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 6.2.x administrator guide for detailed instructions on configuring the Fibre Channel Router ports and GbE ports on the FR4-18i blade.

Cabling the FR4-18i blade

To complete the switch configuration:

1.

Install the SFP transceivers in the Fibre Channel and GbE ports, as required.

a.

Remove the rubber plugs from the ports to be used.

b.

Position a transceiver so that it is oriented correctly and insert it into a port until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks.

For instructions specific to the type of transceiver, see the transceiver manufacturer's documentation.

NOTE:

The transceivers are keyed to ensure correct orientation. If a transceiver does not install easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

c.

Repeat step a and step b for the remaining ports, as required.

2.

Connect the cables to the transceivers.

CAUTION:

A 50-micron cable should not be bent to a radius less than 2 inches under full tensile load and 1.2 inches with no tensile load. Tie wraps are not recommended for optical cables because they are easily overtightened.

a.

Orient a cable connector so that the key (the ridge on one side of connector) aligns with the slot in the transceiver. Then, insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism clicks. For instructions specific to cable type, see the cable manufacturer's documentation.

b.

Repeat Step a for the remaining cables as required.

3.

Check the LEDs to verify that all components are functional.

5.

Verify the correct operation of the FR4-18i blade ports by typing the switchShow

command from the Director command prompt. This command provides information about switch and port status.

Once the FR4-18i blade is installed and fully configured in a Director, the switchShow

command displays 32 Fibre Channel ports (port numbers 0 through 31) and two GbE ports. The first 16

Fibre Channel ports are physical ports on the FR4-18i blade, Ports 16-23 are virtual ports associated with the GE0 physical GbE link and ports 24-31 are virtual ports associated with

GE1 physical GbE link.

The GbE ports are displayed as ge0

and ge1

and are not assigned port numbers or area numbers.

Recommendations for cable management

Manage cables as follows:

• Plan cable management before installing the blade.

• Leave at least one meter of slack for each port cable. This provides room to remove and replace the blades, and helps prevent the cables from being bent to less than the minimum bend radius.
