Adtron I35MB Operations Manual

Introduction

The Adtron™ Diskpak™ Model I35MB with Adtron ActiveRAID™ technology incorporates RAID-1mirroring in a3.5-inchhard disk form factor.RAID-1mirroring between two hard disk drives provides data redundancy and rebuild independent from the host CPU. With both disk drives functioning properly, the I35MB keeps both disk drives automatically updated. If one of the drives fails, the system continues to operate on a single disk drive until the I35MB is removed from the chassis and the failed drive is replaced. When the I35MB is reconnected and powered up, a rebuild can be initiated on the I35MB concurrent with host activity. Once the rebuild is manually started, it continues unattended until complete. ActiveRAID technology significantly reduces the probability of a data storage failure causing an overall system failure.

Static Sensitive – The I35MB is a static sensitive device. While setting jumpers, take precautions to ensure that static does not discharge into the I35MB.

I35MB Jumper Settings

The master/slave and remote LED jumper is located on the front of the I35MB, between the IDE and power connectors. This jumper is used to set master, slave, cable select configurations and to mount a remote Activity LED. Refer to Figure 2 for the location of this jumper.

The following figure shows the jumper location on the I35MB:

Interface Connectors

The I35MB has an interface connector located on the front panel. Using an 80conductor cable (40-pinconnector); connect the I35MB to the primary or secondary ports on the IDE controller. Plug a power cable from the computer’s power supply into the I35MB power connector. The I35MB does not require 12V. Refer to the Figure below, for the location40-pinconnector and power supply.

I35MB Installation

Introduction

The I35MB is a 3.5-inchhard disk drive and mounts into a standard3.5-inchhard disk drive bay. The drive may be mounted from the side or the bottom.

DO NOT exceed the maximum insertion depth of 3.8mm [.150”] from drive edge. Consider the length of the screw used and thickness of the mounting surface. A common screw length of 3/16” is provided, but may not be correct in all applications.

Refer to Figure 6 on page 5 for mounting hole locations.

Static Sensitive - The I35MB is a static sensitive device. When installing and uninstalling the I35MB, take precautions to ensure that static does not discharge into the I35MB.

Adtron I35MB Operations Manual

Inserting the I35MB

To install the I35MB in the hard disk drive bay:

1.Power down the computer and remove the cover.

2.Make sure that you are properly grounded.

3.Set the master/slave to desired configurations. By default, the I35MB is set to master.

4.Select a 3.5-inchdrive bay that houses either a floppy or hard disk. If the chassis provides a front removable panel, the buzzer reset and fault LEDs can be viewed by removing the plastic panel on the chassis.

5.Using an 80-conductorcable(40-pinconnector) connect the I35MB to the IDE primary or secondary IDE ports.

6.Connect the power supply to the I35MB.

7.Mount the I35MB into the appropriate disk drive bay, using screws to secure the I35MB in the chassis. See Figure 6 for mounting holes, screw size and maximum depth.

8.Put the cover on the chassis and screw it down.

9.Power on the computer.

Removing the I35MB

To remove the I35MB from the hard disk drive bay:

1.Make sure that you are properly grounded.

2.Power down the computer.

3.Remove the chassis casing.

4.Disconnect the 80-conductorcable and the computer power supply cable from the I35MB.

5.Unfasten the mounting screws and remove the I35MB from the disk drive bay.

Basic Operation

The I35MB operates as a storage subsystem that can be used as a boot device or as additional storage.

Partitioning and Formatting

To the operating system, the I35MB looks like a single disk drive. All RAID-1functions occurring in the I35MB are transparent to the operating system. Use the operating system utilities to partition and/or format the I35MB hard disk drive.

Operating System Installation

The I35MB can be formatted like any standard hard disk drive – bootable for operating system function or not bootable. Any standard disk partitioning and formatting utility can be used. Any operating system chosen that is compatible with IDE devices will be acceptable for use with the I35MB. The method of installing a specific operating system can vary, so consult the operating system documentation for instructions.
