3. Device Installation

This chapter covers SCSI device installation for 4-bay 1U rackmount enclosures.

SCA Connection and Hot-Swapping

The unit uses SCA-2 type connectors which provide a safe means of connection/disconnection when hot-swapping devices. In order to utilize this feature, the host adapter or RAID controller and host operating software must support the feature. Any SCA drive is capable of plugging directly into the backplane of the unit and should not require any additional cabling or connections.

Canister Removal/Insertion

1.Pull the handle out to unlock the canister from the StorBladeTM unit. Notice that the locking tab slides down as the handle is pulled out.

2.Pull the canister straight out to remove. Ensure that any installed devices are spun down before full removal to prevent damage to the drive.

Follow the steps in reverse to reinstall.

SAFETY TIP: After disengaging a device from the enclosure, allow 10 seconds before pulling the canister out of the unit. This allows the device to properly spin/shut down before transport.

4. SCSI Setup

This chapter covers SCSI device setup and option settings. Please take note of the installation warnings below before beginning setup.

WARNING: Take care when connecting the unit to an AC power source to ensure that it is plugged-in to a circuit of the appropriate rating (110v or 220v). For safe operation, the circuit should have over-current protection to prevent damage to the unit in the event of circuit overloading.

WARNUNG: Vergewissern Sie sich, daß die Netzspannung (220V / 110V) korrekt eingestellt ist, bevor Sie das Gerät mit dem Stromnetz verbinden. Zur Sicherheit sollte das Netz über einen Überspannungsschutz zur Vermeidung von Schäden im Falle einer Überlast verfügen.

WARNING: When connecting the unit to an AC outlet or power strip, ensure that the outlet has the proper connection for grounding. The AC power cables included with the unit have three prongs, one of which is used for the ground connection. Do not use a two prong AC cable with the unit since this will not allow for proper unit grounding and could cause problems with normal unit operation.

WARNUNG: Bei der Verbindung der Unit mit einer Steckdose oder einer Verteilerdose sollten sie auf eine korrekte Erdung derselben achten. Die mitgelieferten Kaltgeräteanschlußkabel habe 3 Kontakte, von denen einer zur Erdung verwendet wird. Verwenden Sie kein Stromkabel mit 2 Anschlüssen, da dieses keine korrekte Erdung ermöglicht und Probleme während des regulären Betriebs verursachen kann.

NOTE: View is from rear of the unit.

There are 4 jumpers on the personality card (W1, W2, W3, and W4) for hard setting the ID of each slot.

Header W1 is for slot 3

Header W2 is for slot 2

Header W3 is for slot 1

Header W4 is for slot 0

Switch settings are shown from the rear of the unit.

Available ID's

Each bus is allowed to have ID's that range from 0-15. No two devices on the same bus may share the same ID. Each host controller always uses one ID. The Figure above shows all 0-15 possible ID settings.

StorBladeTM SCSI JBOD Installation Guide Rev A

4-2

StorBladeTM

ID Conflict

When two devices share the same SCSI ID, a conflict occurs. This conflict must be corrected before the SCSI bus will work properly. If a conflict occurs, check all jumper settings to ensure that no devices on the bus share the same ID. Also check all other devices on the bus outside of the enclosure.

Front Status LEDs

A status indicator is located on each canister. A 'Blue' light indicates normal drive activity. A 'Red' light indicates a device fault. If all canisters display a 'Red' light that is blinking on and off it indicates that there is a system fault. A system fault is either a power supply or blower failure. The power supply and blowers are not field replaceable units. A fault with either the power supply or blowers will require replacement of the entire unit. Refer to Chapter 5.

StorBladeTM

The SCSI In ports are used to connect to a host and require an external cable with a 68-pin High-Density male connector to mate at the enclosure side. Cables are not included.

Each SCSI channel must use a separate external cable connection from the rackmount to the host adapter or RAID controller. It is important that the external cable length and impedance is taken into consideration and is adequate for the devices and SCSI speeds being used.

JMR carries its own line of high quality external SCSI Cables.

Termination

Termination must be provided at the end and beginnings of each SCSI bus either internally or externally. Drive level termination is not recommended since the terminated device may be easily removed.

Termination is not automatic and the Channel A OUT and Channel B OUT connections must have LVD/SE termination if not used.

Daisy-Chaining

SCSI I/O Out ports are used to add other enclosures and devices to the SCSI bus. SCSI I/O Out ports require a cable with a 68-pin High-Density male connector to mate. When daisy chaining, the SCSI I/O Out port of the enclosure is connected to the SCSI I/O In port of the enclosure or device being added. Ensure that when new devices are added to the SCSI bus, that the ID does not have a conflict. Once the units are connected together, termination must be moved to the last device or enclosure on the SCSI bus.

The devices or enclosures daisy-chained together must be compatible SCSI devices. Single-ended interface devices cannot be on the same daisy-chained bus with differential interface devices. Up to 16 devices (including the host) may be daisy-chained together on the same bus.

6. 1U04 Cabinet Installation

This chapter covers the installation of the Rackmount enclosure into a standard 19" (483mm) wide and 30" (762mm) to 36" (914mm) deep cabinet that meets the EMA/RETMA standards.

Before beginning rail installation, please take note of the following precautions:

NOTE: When installing the unit into a cabinet or closed environment, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the maximum recommended ambient temperature. Consideration must be taken to meet the maximum recommended ambient temperature (Tmra) for the best unit operation.

HINWEIS: Wenn das Gerät in einen Gehäuseschrank oder eine sonstige geschlossene Umgebung verbaut wird, kann die Umgebungstemperatur über die maximal zulässige Betriebstemperatur ansteigen. Maßnahmen bzgl. der maximalen, empfohlenen Betriebstemperatur (Tmra) müssen getroffen werden, um eine bestmögliche Funktion des Gerätes zu gewährleisten.

WARNING: Ensure that the front and back of the unit are not blocked when installing the unit into a cabinet or closed area. Blocking the front or back of the unit can cause reduced airflow that will compromise the safe operating environment within the unit.

WARNUNG: Vergewissern Sie sich, daß das Gerät an Vorderund Rückseite nicht abgedeckt ist, wenn das Gerät in einem Gehäuseschrank oder einer geschlossenen Umgebung verbaut wird. Abdeckung der Vorderund Rückseite kann verminderte Kühlung zur Folge haben und somit sichere Betriebsbedingungen negativ beeinflussen.

WARNING: When loading the unit into a cabinet, ensure that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading. To prevent injury, remove the power supplies and drives before loading, and reinstall them after the unit has been secured in the cabinet.

WARNUNG: Vermeiden Sie während des Einbaus des Gerätes in einen Gehäuseschrank jegliche gefährliche Aktionen, selbst wenn diese nur mechanischer Art sind. Um Verletzungen zu vermeiden, entfernen Sie die Netzteile und Laufwerke vor der Montage und installieren Sie diese erst erneut, wenn das Gerät im Gehäuseschrank gesichert ist.Vergewissern Sie sich, daß das Gerät an Vorderund Rückseite nicht abgedeckt ist.
