Reserved Disk Space During Configuration For more information on enabling the alarm and the conditions that activate the alarm, see Enable Alarm. Choosing The Configuration Method Performance of disk and network controllers Bandwidth and latency capabilities of buses Network throughput of attached drives Shared bus performance System-level hard drive performance System-level network performance. To remove the dedicated hot spare and return the array disk to its normal status, use the Remove a Dedicated Hot Spare procedure. The Temperature Probe Properties dialog displays the current status of the temperature probe as well as the default values in celsius for the minimum and maximum error thresholds.

Channel redundancy means that if one of the channels fails, data will not be lost because redundant data resides on another channel.

The default values for the error thresholds indicate that the enclosure has reached a dangerous temperature that may cause damage. Components And Features Renaming a virtual disk enables you to change the virtual disk name displayed in the Array Manager tree delll. For example, if you download firmware onto system A, and system B cannot see the firmware update, then restart the disk management service on system B.

For the commands associated with an enclosure’s array disks, see Array and Hard Disk Commands. The Blink command allows you to find an array disk within an enclosure by blinking one of the light-emitting diodes LEDs on the disk.

This function checks mirror synchronization and rebuilds parity if necessary. Prrc types of workloads tested explain these performance characteristics. Due to the random nature of the typical server workload, disk subsystem performance is not usually limited by the bandwidth of the drive interface, but by the seek time on the drives themselves.

The following procedure describes the sequence of actions required to create or delete a virtual disk from a cluster-enabled controller. Caution Any data residing on the disk you choose as the secondary disk or mirror will be lost when you complete this procedure. For more information on power supply properties, see Power Supply Properties.

For more information on the enclosure’s components, commands, and 3/qcc array disks included in the enclosure, see the following sections:. You can also select the array disks and the controller channel to be used.

Battery Backup Menu Items The enclosure’s array disks are displayed under the enclosure object in the tree view. Right-clicking the temperature probes object in the left pane displays a context menu with a Properties option.

If a virtual disk using the failed array disk is not redundant, then the data is permanently lost without any method unless you have a backup to restore the data. This operation will destroy any existing virtual disks on the controller. Logical Drive Menu Options In the case where a virtual disk consists of array disks on multiple channels, each array disk must be migrated to an enclosure that is connected to the same channel number that the array disk or enclosure was originally connected to.

If you have not yet attached the enclosure to an open channel, you may need to identify a channel on the controller that can be used for this purpose. This feature can be used to mirror a system’s boot drive, ensuring that the system remains running in the event of a boot drive failure.

This section describes how enclosure management works and then details the specific enclosure management commands. When the enclosure’s alarm is enabled, the EMM activates the alarm when certain conditions occur. Note This feature is not recommended for use on a Windows or Windows Server server.


You can also use this procedure to view the service tag number for the enclosure. In the 8 KB OLTP scenario, the disk must spend a lot of time rotating and moving the heads to access the correct part of the disk.

For the PVS and PVS, the operating system and server shut down at 0 degrees celsius or 50 degrees celsius if you have not implemented Channel Redundancy. To display general properties for all of the temperature probes, right-click the top-level dsll probe object the level directly under the controller object and select Properties from the context menu.

Types Of Parity Delll creating a virtual disk, these controllers support a certain number of stripes and spans methods for combining the storage on array disks. You may want to use this command to locate an array disk that has failed. If one of the array disks belonging to a redundant virtual disk fails or is removed, then the virtual disk becomes degraded. It can be used on a Windows NT 4. If you right-click the Fans object or an individual fan, a context menu is displayed with a Properties option.
