OCE, ORLM and the RocketRAID 2240
The RocketRAID 2240 supports both Online Capacity Expansion (OCE), and Online RAID Level Migration (ORLM). Both features are supported by a single function - an array can be transformed from one RAID level to another RAID level while simultaneously being resized, even under I/O load.
A spare disk is a single disk that can be used to automatically rebuild a redundant array in case of drive failure. Spare disks may also be members of a RAID array. Any available space on these disks may be used to rebuild other broken arrays.
Disks attached to the RocketRAID 2240 that contain valid partition tables will be identified as legacy disks. A legacy disk attached to the RocketRAID 2240 can be accessed by the operating system, but cannot be used to create RAID arrays. A legacy disk must be initialized before assigning it to an array.

RocketRAID 2240 Hardware
1 RocketRAID 2240 Adapter Layout
IBPort1- IBPort4 These represent the RocketRAID Infiniband SATA connectors. Each of s these 4 connectors hosts up to 4 SATA disks, for a total of 16 hard disk drives. These disks are referred to as Portor channels 1-16. CON1 CON8 LED connectors (disk-activity/disk-failure): Each Infiniband channel (port) utilizes two of these connectors. CON1-4 are for use with hard disk activity LED while s, CON5-8 provides disk failure LED support. LED support is discussed in greater detail in the LED Connection section (page 2-2), and in a separate document, the RocketRAID 2240 LED guide (which discusses LED installation for specific server chassis, and will be available in downloadable form from our website). JP1 SAF-TEE connector (connection between chassis and host adapter) Speaker ( BEEP1 ) Alarm: the speaker emits an audible alarm in the case of disk/array failure.
2 - LED Connections
The table below is also printed on the surface of the card for quick reference. The use of the term Port in the table below, refers to the SATA channel/ hard disk , (1-16), as reported by the RocketRAID 22240 BIOS and RAID Management s software.
Create - this command is used to create RAID arrays. Page 3-3 discusses this
command in detail.
Delete - this command will delete the selected RAID array.
Warning: This command may result in permanent data loss - it should only be used if data stored on the target array is no longer relevant, or has been backed up to an alternate storage device.
Add/Remove Spare - this command is used to assign hard disks to function as
spare disks. The controller is capable of using spare disks to automatically rebuild broken or faulted RAID arrays. Page 3-4 discusses this command in detail.
Set Boot Mark - this function is used to designate a particular disk or RAID array to function as the RocketRAID 2240 boot device. s Note: This setting is only relevant if the motherboard BIOS has set the s RocketRAID 2240 to function as the system primary boot device. s
Staggered spin up This function is used to enable (or disable) staggered drive
spin up support. Staggered drive spin up, by default, is disabled. When enabled, the RocketRAID 2240 will power up the hard disks one at a time, approximately every two seconds.
View this command is used to select between two views. Press the ENTER key to
change the view. Devices displays information about hard disks attached to the RocketRAID 2240. Use the arrow keys to highlight the target hard disk, and press ENTER to view the information. RAID arrays displays information about RAID arrays attached to the RocketRAID 2240. Use the arrow keys to highlight the target array, and press ENTER to view the information.
Initialize - this function is used to prepare disks for use with RAID arrays.
Note: Arrays cannot be created between disks that have not been initialized. Section x - 2 discusses this command in detail.
2 - Creating RAID Arrays
Before creating a RAID array, the disks must be initialized. Initialization writes necessary RAID configuration information to the hard disk. Use the arrow keys to select the Initialize command, and press ENTER. Warning: Initialization will destroy all pre- existing data on the selected hard disks. Use the arrow keys to highlight the target hard disk(s) and press ENTER. Next, press the Y (yes) key to initialize the selected disk(s), or N (no) key to cancel the initialization process. Once initialized, these disks can be utilized to create RAID arrays.
To create an array:
1. 2. 3. Use the arrow keys to highlight the Create command, and press ENTER to open the Create Menu. Use the arrow keys to select the appropriate RAID level, then press ENTER. Next, use the arrow key to highlight the Array Name option and press ENTER. The array name dialogue box will appear. Use the keyboard to input a new Array Name, and press the Enter key. Note: the Array Name command is optional it is not necessary to name the array. The array can be named at a later time, and the name of the array can be changed at any time. 4. 5. On the Create menu, use the arrow key to highlight the Select Devices item and press ENTER. A device list will appear, and display all available hard disk drives. Highlight the target disks that you want to use, and press ENTER to select them. After all of the disks have been selected, press the ESC key to return to the Create Menu.
Next, Use the arrow key to highlight the Capacity (GB) option and press ENTER. The total available capacity will be displayed. Press ENTER if you wish to use all available space.
If you wish to reserve disk space for additional arrays/single disks, use the keyboard to input the amount of space (in GB) you wish to set aside for this particular array, and press ENTER. Note: Multiple arrays can be created using the same set of hard disk drives. The Capacity option allows you to set aside disk space that be used to create another array or set as a spare disk. To complete the creation procedure, use the arrow key to highlight the Start Creation item and press ENTER.
3 - Adding/Removing Spare Disks
This command is used to assign a hard disk to act as a Spare Disk. Spare Disks are used to automatically rebuild Redundant RAID arrays (RAID 1, 5, 10) in the case of disk failure. To set a hard disk to act as a Spare Disk, use the arrow keys to select a disk, and press ENTER. To remove the Spare Disk setting from a hard disk, highlight the spare disk, and press ENTER. Generally, single disks are designated to act as spares (disks that are not configured into RAID arrays). However, in some instances, disks that are members of RAID arrays may also be designated to act as a spare. If the disks in question are part of a RAID array that did not utilize the full available capacity at the time of creation, these disks may be used as spares. For example: a RAID 0 array was created between two 200GB hard disks, but only 200GB of space (out of a grand total of 400GB), was assigned to that array. In this example, 200GB of disk space remains unallocated. This unallocated space would allow these disks to be set as spares for a separate redundant array that falls into the same capacity range (200GB).
RocketRAID 2240 Driver and Software Installation

In the pop-up window, select the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Managerbutton. Double click the SCSI and RAID controllersentry - two RocketRAID 2240 entries should be present. If either one of the RocketRAID 2240 device entries is not displayed, or there are or marks displayed near the RocketRAID 2240 ? ! entries, the driver has not been installed properly. Delete the entries and reinstall the driver.
Installing the RocketRAID 2240 driver during a fresh Windows 2000/ XP/2003/x64 installation
1. After booting from the Windows 2000/XP/2003 CD-ROM, when the Windows XP Setup blue screen appears, look towards the bottom of the screen. Windows will prompt you to press the F6 key if you want to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver. Press the F6 key at this time. 2. 3. 4. The setup procedure will continue, and will later instruct you to press the key S to specify additional adapters. Press the key as instructed. S Next, the setup program will prompt for the insertion of the driver diskette. Please insert the driver diskette, and then press ENTER to continue. The next window will display several driver options. Please select the RocketRAID 2240 Controller for the corresponding operating system, and press ENTER to continue.
3. 4. 5.
Select the desired RAID level from the drop-down list. Enter a name for the array using the keyboard (this is optional), and click the Next button. If you are creating a redundant array (RAID 1, 5, 10), select an initialization option. If you are creating a RAID 0 or JBOD (volume), skip to step 6: For RAID1 and RAID 10 arrays, the default initialization method is No initialization. For RAID5 arrays, the default initialization method is Foreground. If you are creating RAID5, you will be asked to specify a cache policy: Write-back - when the write-back setting is selected, all write requests sent to the array are cached. This will result in higher performance, but data loss may occur in case of a power failure. Write-through - when the write-through setting is selected, all write requests sent to the array are passed directly to the disks. However, subsequent reads may still be completed from the cache if appropriate.
Select which disks are to be used to create the array. Highlight the desired disk from the left-side of the interface (available disks), then click on the selected one a time. If you wish to remove a selected disk, highlight it from the selected disk section, and use the button to move it to the available disk section. button
to move the disk to the right side of the interface (selected disks). Disks must be
Note: The selection sequence is important - the order in which the disks are selected will determine the disk sequence of the array. 7. Select the capacity - the RocketRAID 2240 can create multiple arrays on the same set of drives. As a result of this feature, you have the option of assigning a physical disk to multiple RAID arrays. Press Enter to use the default value (the maximum capacity for the array), or specify the desired value using the keyboard, and press Enter to confirm this selection. Then, click the Finish button.
Note: If you have specified an initialization option, the initialization process will start automatically. A progress bar will be displayed towards the bottom of the interface window, and will indicate % completion, and provide an estimate of the time needed to complete the initialization procedure.
4 - Deleting an Array
To delete an array:
1. Highlight the Managementmenu, then select the Array Management function. Highlight the array you want to delete, then click on the Delete Iconor select the Delete command from the Operationmenu. A warning message will appear. Click Yes to delete the array. Click No to stop this procedure.
Note: An array in use by the operating system cannot be deleted. Any data stored on a deleted array will be inaccessible.
5 - Configuring Spare Disks
Spare disks can be used to rebuild redundant RAID arrays in the case of failure. To configure spare disks, highlight the Managementmenu, and select the Spare Managementfunction. The Spare Management window will appear. To add a spare disk, select it from the Available Disk list box and click the button to add the disk to the Spare Pool list box. To remove a spare disk, select it from the Spare Pool list box and click the button to remove the disk from the Spare Pool list box.
6 - Recovering/Verifying Arrays
When an array member (hard disk) of a redundant array fails, the array will be marked as broken. Broken arrays can be automatically rebuilt using hot-spare disks (see page 20). However, if there are no available spare disks, you can still rebuild the array by adding a new disk to it. To add a disk to a broken array: 1. 2. 3. 4. Highlight the Managementmenu, and select the Array Management function. Highlight the broken array that needs to be rebuilt. Click the Add Disk button on the toolbar or select Diskcommand from the Add Operationmenu. If the disk is successfully added to the array, rebuild process will start automatically. Note: In some instances, a failed array will not rebuild automatically. To manually start the rebuild process for a broken/critical array: 1. 2. 3. Highlight the Managementmenu, and select the Array Management function. Highlight the array that needs to be rebuilt. Click the Rebuild button on the toolbar or select the Rebuildcommand from the Operationmenu.
Verifying an Array
For a RAID 1 or RAID 10 array, the verify process compares the data of one mirror pair with the other (single hard disk in the case of RAID1, and a paired set of disks for RAID 10). For RAID 5, the verify process calculates RAID5 parity and compares it to the parity data on the array. Verification checks each sector on a given disk. Periodic verification of an array allows the disk drive firmware to take corrective actions on problem areas on the disk, minimizing the occurrence of uncorrectable read and write errors.
To verify an array: 1. Highlight the Managementmenu, and select the Array Management function. Highlight the array you want to verify. Click the Verify button on the toolbar or select the Verifycommand from the Operationmenu. Verify process will start.
2. 3. 4.
The RocketRAID 2240 supports both OCE (Online Capacity Expansion), and ORLM (Online RAID Level Migration). The RAID software provides support for these features through a single function, known as OCE/ORLM. With the OCE/ORLM function, you can transform an array from one RAID level to another RAID level and/or resize the array dynamically, even under I/O load.
Add a Connection
This command is used to add new connection to a remote system. To Add a Connection: 1. 2. 3. Highlight the Filemenu, and select the Remote Controlfunction. Click the Add button on the toolbar or select the Addcommand from the Operationmenu. Enter the system address, name, and port information in the pop-up window.

If the connection is successful established, the application will retrieve the event logs from the remote system, then switch to Array Management view.
Disconnect Remote System
This function closes the connection from a connected system. To disconnect a remote system: 1. 2. 3. Highlight the Filemenu and select the Remote Controlfunction. Highlight the system you want to disconnect from. Select the Disconnectcommand from the Operationmenu.
Step 1 Obtain the Driver Module
Extract the module file from the file modules.cgz (from the driver disk) using the following commands: # mount /dev/fd0 # cd /tmp # gzip -dc /mnt/floppy/modules.cgz | cpio -idumv Driver modules for all supported kernel versions will be extracted. The driver module for the active kernel is located under the directory that matches the kernel version (/ tmp/ uname /i686/hptmv6.ko). r After extracting the driver module, load it using the following commands: # modprobe sd_mod # cd /tmp/ uname r # insmod hptmv6.ko Arrays attached to the adapter can be accessed as SCSI devices (e.g. /dev/sda).
Step 2 Mounting and Partitioning the Device
Example: A RAID array has been configured between several hard disks. This array will be registered to the system as device /dev/sda. To create a partition on this array (which will listed as /dev/sda1), use the fdisk / dev/sdacommand. Next, use the mkfs /dev/sda1command to setup a file system on this partition. Use the command mkdir xxxxto create a mount point for the RAID array. Then mount /dev/sda1 /xxxx in order to access it. Note: xxxx represents the desired name of the mount point.
Step 3 Configure System to Automatically Load the Driver
To avoid typing in insmod hptmv6.koeach time the operating system is booted, the system must be instructed to automatically load the module during bootup. To install the module, type in the following commands (first change to the directory where the proper hptmv6.ko file is located): # cp hptmv6.ko /lib/modules/ uname /kernel/drivers/scsi. r # depmod Then, instruct the system to load the module when booting. Use the following commands: # echo modprobe hptmv6> /etc/init.d/hptdriver # chmod 755 /etc/init.d/hptdriver # ln /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S01hptdriver sf # ln /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc4.d/S01hptdriver sf # ln /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S01hptdriver sf
Step 4 Configure System to Mount Volumes during Startup
The system can be instructed to automatically mount the array(s) during startup by modifying the file /etc/fstab. For example, add the following line to tell the system to mount /dev/sda1 to location / mnt/raid after startup: /dev/sda1 /mnt/raid ext3 defaults 0 0
3 - Updating the Driver
1. If the original driver is installed in the system initrd (Initial RAM Disk) file s (when using a system installed to RR2240 controller, for example), the driver module in the initrd file should be updated using the mkini trd command (or extract the initrd file and replace the driver module manually). 2. If the original driver is installed in the /lib/modules/ uname /kernel/drivers/ r scsi/ directory, and loaded by the script file (Example /etc/init.d/hptdriver) during the init process, or the configure file (Example /etc/modules.conf), please replace it with the new driver (hptmv6.ko).
# modprobe sd_mod # cd /tmp/ uname r # insmod hptmv6.o Arrays attached to the adapter can be accessed as SCSI devices (e.g. /dev/sda).
Example: A RAID array has been configured between several hard disks. This array will be registered to the system as device /dev/sda. To create a partition on this array (which will listed as /dev/sda1), use the fdisk / dev/sdacommand. Next, use the mkfs /dev/sda1command to setup a file system on this partition. Use the command mkdir xxxxto create a mount point for the RAID array. Then,mount /dev/sda1 /xxxx in order to access it. Note: xxxx represents the desired name of the mount point.
To avoid typing in insmod hptmv6.oeach time the operating system is booted, the system must be instructed to automatically load the module during bootup. To install the module, type in the following commands (first change to the directory where the proper hptmv6.o file is located): # install -d /lib/modules/ uname /kernel/drivers/scsi r # install -c hptmv6.o /lib/modules/ uname /kernel/drivers/scsi r Then, instruct the system to load the module when booting. Use the following commands: # echo modprobe hptmv6> /etc/init.d/hptdriver # chmod 755 /etc/init.d/hptdriver
# ln /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S01hptdriver sf # ln /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc4.d/S01hptdriver sf # ln /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S01hptdriver sf
The system can be instructed to automatically mount the array(s) during startup by modifying the file /etc/fstab. For example, add the following line to tell the system to mount /dev/sda1 to location / mnt/raid after startup: /dev/sda1 /mnt/raid ext2 defaults 0 0
If you are not booting from disks attached to RocketRAID 2240 controller, you can update the driver just by reinstalling it following the procedure outlined in the previous section, Installing the RocketRAID 2240 driver for an Existing System. If you are running the system installed to a disk or array attached to the RocketRAID 2240: First, obtain the new driver module hptmv6.o Refer to the previous section. Obtain the Driver Module In following steps, we assume it has been. copied to /tmp/hptmv6.o. Replace hptmv6.o in the boot RAM disk image, /boot/initrd-xxx.img (where xxx is the kernel version). Example: (2.4.21-4.EL for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0): # gzip -dc /boot/initrd-xxx.img > /tmp/initrd.ext2 # mkdir /mnt/initrd # mount -o loop /tmp/initrd.ext2 /mnt/initrd # cp /tmp/hptmv6.o /mnt/initrd/lib/hptmv6.o # umount /mnt/initrd
Note: The driver cannot be uninstalled while the system is booted from a disk or array attached to the RocketRAID 2240. To uninstall the driver, remove the lines added to /etc/modules.conf and /etc/fstab.
FreeBSD Driver Support
1 - Installing FreeBSD on the RocketRAID 2240 Controller
If you would like to install FreeBSD onto arrays attached to the RocketRAID 2240 host adapter, please follow the steps below.
When installing FreeBSD to a disk or array attached to the RR2240, you must prepare a RR2240 driver diskette before starting the installation procedure. First, obtain the driver diskette image file from the driver package. In a DOS or Windows system, create the boot diskette using the rawrite.exe utility. This utility can be found on the FreeBSD CD (under \tools). Run it under a DOSPrompt window and follow it prompt. s On a FreeBSD system, use the command to make the driver diskette. For dd example, Insert a floppy disk into the floppy drive and type the following command (if you are installing FreeBSD 5.x versions): # dd if=freebsd_5.x.img of=/dev/fd0
Step 2 Install FreeBSD
1. 2. 3. Start the FreeBSD installation procedure by booting from installation CD. If you are installing FreeBSD 5.0 or earlier versions, skip this step.

Note: If you have configured a RAID 10 using 4 disks, it will be registered to system as device /dev/da0. You can use /stand/sysinstallto create partitions and disklabels (like da0s1e) on da0. Then, create a new filesystem using newfs /dev/ da0s1e Now you can mount /dev/da0s1e to somewhere to access it.
To avoid typing in load hptmv6each time the operating system is booted, the system must be instructed to automatically load the module during bootup. To configure the system to automatically install the module, type in the following commands:
# echo hptmv6_load=YES > > /boot/defaults/loader.conf
This command will instruct the loader to load the RR2240 module together with the kernel. After using this command, reboot the system. The RR2240 module should now automatically load each time the operating system starts up. Note: When using FreeBSD 4.x, type in the follwing command to configure the system: # mknod /dev/hptmv6 c Then, check to make sure the node /dev/hptmv6 , is present in the /dev directory.
Step 4 Configure the System to Mount Volumes at Startup
Instruct the system to automatically mount the array by modifying the file /etc/fstab. Example: Add the following line to instruct the system to mount /dev/da1s1e to location /mnt/hpt after startup: /dev/da1s1e /mnt/hpt ufs rw 0 0
To update the driver with a newer revision, simply reinstall the driver following the steps discussed in the previous section, Install the driver on an existing system.
4 Uninstalling the Driver
The driver can only be uninstalled when the system is not booting from devices attached to the RR2240controller. To uninstall, remove the line hptmv6_load= YES located in /boot/defaults/loader.conf, and then delete the driver module /modules/ hptmv6.ko or /boot/kernel/hptmv6.ko.
