Power up the server. Select Advanced or Advanced Settings. Return to the previous screen by pressing the Escape key.

Select the Boot Menu by pressing the right arrow key. Select Hard Disk Drives. Cnotroller Boot Controller Order. Enabling and configuring the controller 5. For the most efficient use of drive space, all drives within an array should have approximately the same capacity. Each configuration utility treats every physical drive in an array as if it has the same capacity as the smallest drive in the array.

Any excess capacity of a particular drive cannot be used in the array. Therefore, the capacity is unavailable for data storage.

The more physical drives that are in an array, the greater the probability that the array will experience a drive failure during any given period. To reduce the risk of data loss that might occur when smzrt drive fails, configure all logical smzrt in an array with a suitable fault-tolerance RAID method.

Newly created logical drives are invisible to the operating system. To make the new logical drives available for data storage, format them using the instructions given in the operating system documentation.

The utility also provides support for the following functions: Reconfiguring one or more logical drives Viewing the current logical drive configuration Deleting a logical drive configuration Setting the controller to be the boot controller If you do not use the utility, ORCA will default to the standard configuration.

For more information regarding array controller configuration, refer to the controller user guide. To create a logical drive using ORCA: Select Create Logical Drive. The screen displays a list of all unconfigured physical drives and the valid RAID options for the system.

Use the Arrow keys, Spacebar, and Tab key to navigate around the screen and set up the logical drive, including an online spare drive, if one is required. You cannot use ORCA to configure one spare drive to be shared among several arrays.


Only ACU enables you smmart configure shared spare drives. Press the Enter key to accept the settings. Enabling and configuring the controller 6.

Press the F8 key to confirm the settings and save the new configuration. After several seconds, the Configuration Saved screen appears.

Press the Enter key to continue. Repeat this procedure to create additional logical drives.

Rwid running Microsoft operating systems require one of the following supported browsers: TXT file for additional browser and support information. For proper hot-plug operation, the following items are required: The license key is stored on the hard drive. If no hard drives are installed, the license key cannot be installed.

Before installing the license key, be sure that hard drives are installed. For more information on installing hard drives, see the server user guide. Depending on the method of delivery, the certificate is provided either in a sealed envelope or conhroller an message. To install the license key, use one of the following methods: Power down the server, if necessary. During POST, all controllers in the server are initialized one controlper a time in the current boot order sequence.

If a controller is connected to one or more hard drives, a message appears during the initialization process for that controller, prompting you to start ORCA. If no hard drives are installed, then this option does not appear. Enabling and configuring the controller 8. Select Manage License Keys. Enter the license key in the space provided. ORCA issues a notification after the license key activates successfully. Installing a license key with ACU To install a license key: Enabling and configuring the controller 9.

Specific license key tasks appear. A complete list of existing license keys also appears. Click Add License Key. Smqrt the license key number. Enabling and configuring the controller For more information see “Enabling the controller and setting the boot order on page 5. For manual installation of Microsoft Windows Serverthe driver must be added using the virtual install disk or the F6 option at the beginning of the installation process.

If the server model supports the virtual install disk feature, the driver installs automatically.

Updates can be applied after the OS installation is complete. The readme file provided on the DUD image provides detailed instructions for installing device drivers on specific versions of the Linux operating system.


Installing Management Agents If you use the Assisted Installation path feature of SmartStart to install the operating system on a new server, the Management Agents are automatically installed at the same time.

Installing device drivers and Management Agents The procedure is provided with the agents. To download the latest versions of the CDs, see the HP website: Easy Set-up CD tml?

Sometimes, a drive that has previously been failed by the controller may seem to be operational after the system is power-cycled or for a hot-pluggable drive contrlller the drive has been removed and reinserted. Conttoller, continued use of such marginal drives may eventually result in data loss.

Replace guife marginal drive as soon as possible. The following items indicate a hard drive failure: The following messages appear in ORCA: Drive Array Failure o This indicates a drive failure in a logical volume. This may mean that multiple drives have failed.

The following POST messages appear when the system is restarted, as long as the controller detects controllrr least one functional drive: Drive Array Failure o ADU lists all failed drives on systems supported by SmartStart v8. For additional information about diagnosing hard drive problems, see the HP ProLiant Servers Troubleshooting Guide on the HP website Effects of a hard drive failure When a smadt drive fails, all logical drives that are in the same array are affected.

Each logical drive in an array might be using a different fault-tolerance method. Therefore, each logical drive can be affected differently. Replacing, moving, or adding hard drives If any physical h; in the array fails, all RAID 0 logical drives in the same array also fail.

RAID 1 configurations can tolerate one drive failure. One drive from each RAID 1 volume can fail for a total of two failed drives. When fault tolerance is compromised, data loss can occur. However, it may be possible to recover the data. For more information, see “Recovering from compromised fault tolerance on page If this failure occurs, the operating system rejects all requests and indicates unrecoverable errors.

For example, fault tolerance might occur when a drive in an array fails while another drive in the array is being rebuilt.

What’s missing? Tell us about it.

Compromised fault tolerance can also be caused by problems unrelated to drives. In such cases, replacing the physical drives is not required. Recovering from compromised fault tolerance If fault tolerance is compromised, inserting replacement drives does not improve the condition of the logical volume. Instead, if the screen displays unrecoverable error messages, perform the following procedure to recover data: Power down the entire system, and then power it back up.
