HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch & 4/32B SAN Switch Power Pack /B-Series Family
The HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch is the successor to the 4/32 SAN Switch, which shipped in January, 2005. The 4/32B SAN Switch offers an improved TCO because it consumes 20 percent less power, generates less heat, and requires less cooling then the 4/32 SAN Switch. The HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch delivers excellent overall value and investment protection as the foundation for a small SAN or as an edge switch in a larger core to edge enterprise SAN. Whether incorporated into an expansive core fabric or tactically placed at the edge, this switch delivers the performance of 1,2, or 4 Gb technologies in a 1u footprint. The switch is available in three models: HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch Power Pack with 32 active ports and value added software HP StorageWorks 4/32B Full SAN Switch with 32 active ports HP StorageWorks 4/32B SAN Switch with 16 active ports (Base) An optional 8 port license scales the number of active ports to 24 or up to 32 ports. Each switch variant has removable redundant power supplies/cooling units. These integrated POWER/FAN units reduce overall Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) count, lower power dissipation, and reduce cooling requirements. The switch is ideal for supporting medium to large corporate infrastructure implementations. The 4/32B SAN Switch Power Pack includes the 4/32B SAN Switch (Full) with additional software: Fabric Watch, ISL Trunking, Extended Fabric, and Performance Monitor. Power Pack software provides SAN administrators with the necessary tools to monitor the health and performance of the network while insuring the highest levels of security, scalability, and manageability. Small form factor pluggable optical transceivers (SFPs) must be ordered separately.

Advanced Fabric Services
Software Components, Standard, Base Models
Frame Filtering An ASIC based capability that enables new applications and features. The switch has the ability to "view" the first 64 bytes of the Fibre Channel frame. At this time, Frame Filtering enables advanced capabilities such as Advanced Zoning and Advanced Performance Monitoring. WWN Zoning and Access Control are enforced by hardware that provides the same simple administration previously enforced only with software. Administrators can organize a physical fabric into logical groups and prevent unauthorized access by devices outside the Zone. WebTools is an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface that enables organizations to monitor and manage SAN fabrics. Tasks can be performed through a Java-capable Web browser from a standard laptop, desktop PC or workstation from any location within the enterprise.
Enhanced Group Management (EGM) is a FOS license that is included with all B-Series switches and enables multi-switch operations. It helps automate operations across multiple switches to save time and streamline repetitive operations, which are typically prone to error. EGM drives consistency across fabrics, while minimizing the risk associated with potential downtime due to configuration mismatches. EGM provides streamlined troubleshooting for more effective fabric monitoring and diagnosis. Both Data Center Fabric Manager Professional and Enterprise enable EGM functionality. Customers have EGM functionality enabled within the hardware product and need only to make the decision around which management application is right for them - Data Center Fabric Manager Professional or Enterprise.
Software Components, Optional
4/32B SAN Switch Power The Power Pack Software Bundle for 4/32B SAN Switch includes the following: Pack Software Bundle Fabric Watch Advanced Performance Monitor Extended Fabric ISL Trunking Fabric Watch Fabric Watch enables each switch to monitor the SAN for potential faults and automatically alert network managers to problems before they become failures. Fabric Watch tracks a variety of SAN fabric elements, events, and counters. Monitoring fabric-wide events, ports, SFPs, and environmental parameters permits early fault detection and isolation as well as performance measurement. Each switch in the SAN needs its own Fabric Watch license. This enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics from a SID (Source ID) to a DID (Destination ID), so they can fine-tune and scale the fabric more efficiently. Plus, Advanced Performance Monitoring includes the ability for early warning detection of hot spots within the fabric, a powerful tool for maintaining overall balanced performance. Extends all of the scalability, reliability, and performance benefits of Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SANs) beyond the native 10 km distance specified by the Fibre Channel standard.
Advanced Performance Monitor
Data Center Fabric Manager Professional
HP StorageWorks Data Center Fabric Manager Professional is a server based management application available at no-charge and comes with B-series SAN Switches and includes the following features: Allows management of a single Fabric OS (FOS) fabric (up to a 1,000 B-Series switch ports) at a time Performs group switch management beyond the scope of Web Tools Does not offer management of the DC SAN Backbone Director It is targeted for SMB customers that use FOS based SAN fabrics and require a management solution for smaller SANs based on a single fabric. SMB customers that initially start off with Data Center Fabric Manager Professional and have a small SAN environment may over time feel the need for an enterprise-class product (Data Center Fabric Manager Enterprise) as their environments start to grow in size and complexity, and as they start to uptake more enterprise-class functionality (such as Fibre Channel Routing, FCIP, etc.). A non-disruptive upgrade path is available from Data Center Fabric Manager Professional to Data Center Fabric Manager Enterprise.
Data Center Fabric Manager Enterprise
HP StorageWorks Data Center Fabric Manager Enterprise is a server based enterprise-class product that supports FOS products as well as FOS and M-EOS products together. It provides complete DC SAN Backbone Director management including enterprise-class features/environments such as FICON, Fibre Channel Routing, FCIP, Adaptive Networking, etc. It also delivers unprecedented scalability with support for up to 24 SAN fabrics and 9,000 B-series switch ports. HP will provide a free license upgrade to Data Center Fabric Manager Enterprise for existing HAFM/FM customers that have an active maintenance and support contract at the time Data Center Fabric Manager Enterprise is available. Data Center Fabric Manager does require at least one FOS based Bseries SAN switch.
For high performance enhanced Trunking, this optional license logically groups up to four E-ports to provide a high bandwidth trunk between two switches. Each 4Gb switch needs its own license. The switch operating system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 32Gb) when routing connections between 4G switches. Connections are load-balanced across the individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group. Secure Fabric OS is available only on the B-Series platform and is the only solution that provides protection for both management access and switch-to-switch authentication. This comprehensive security solution for SAN fabrics provides policy-based security protection for more predictable change management, assured configuration integrity and reduced risk of downtime. Secure Fabric OS protects the network by using the strongest, enterprise-class security methods available, including digital certificates and digital signatures, multiple levels of password protection, strong password encryption and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based authentication, and 128-bit encryption of the switch's private key used for digital signatures. With its flexible design, Secure Fabric OS enables organizations to customize SAN security to meet specific policy requirements. In addition, Secure Fabric OS works in conjunction with Advanced Zoning to further secure access to the SAN, simplify storage management, and reduce provisioning time.

This section describes the following HP Fibre Channel routed fabric technologies: B-series Meta SAN (page 36)Implemented in certain 8 Gb/s switch models with license enabled integrated Fibre Channel routing or using the B-series 1606 Extension SAN Switch, DC Dir Switch MP Extension Blade, 400 Multi-protocol Router (400 MP Router), Multi-protocol Router Blade (MP Router Blade), or Multi-protocol Router (MP Router), which provide selective Fibre Channel routing connectivity between multiple B-series fabrics or between B-series and M-series fabrics. B-series Virtual Fabrics with IFR (page 37)Implemented in B-series switches (DC SAN Backbone Director, DC04 Director, 8/80 SAN Switch, and 8/40 SAN Switch) using B-series Virtual Fabrics. IFR allows you to share devices across multiple B-series Virtual Fabrics partions. C-series VSANs with IVR (page 38)Implemented using C-series IVR. IVR provides selective Fibre Channel routing connectivity between devices in different VSANs. Ports on one or more switches can be assigned to different VSANs. H-series switches with TR (page 38)Implemented using the TR feature, which is available with firmware 8.x (or later). The TR feature provides inter-fabric routing, allowing controlled access between devices on an SN6000 Fibre Channel Switch or an 8/20q Fibre Channel Switch (local) fabric and devices on a remote fabric consisting of B-series or C-series switches.
NOTE: Certain operating systems may require the use of fabric zoning to define a minimum of two zoned paths for each server configured with multiple paths in a single fabric. Figure 12 Level 3: single resilient fabric with multiple device paths
Level 4: multiple fabrics and device paths (NSPOF)
Level 4 provides multiple data paths between servers and storage systems, but unlike level 3, the paths connect to physically separate fabrics (Figure 13 (page 41)). This level ensures the highest availability with NSPOF protection. If a switch, server HBA, or storage system path failure occurs, data is automatically rerouted through the alternate fabric and there is no interruption in server I/O activity. Level 4 minimizes vulnerability to fabric failures (for example, improper switch replacement, incorrect fabric configuration settings, or a fabric service failure). Level 4 also provides the highest level of performance and a higher number of available ports, since all fabrics can be accessed simultaneously during normal operations. Figure 13 Level 4: multiple fabrics and device paths (NSPOF)
Using two fabrics may increase implementation costs, but it also increases the total number of available ports. For example, in a single meshed fabric with four switches, you have a maximum of 52 user ports for servers and storage. Implementing the same topology using two fabrics increases the maximum number of user ports to 104.
When choosing a data availability level, you must consider: Cost Access to critical data
For mission-critical applications, HP recommends that you implement a level 4, fully redundant fabric configuration. You can justify the additional cost if you consider the cost of losing access to critical data. Table 8 (page 42) indicates data availability and supported topologies for each level. Table 8 Fabric design data availability

You can add fabrics to increase the number of available ports. Table 9 (page 42) lists the cost calculations for each data availability level. Table 9 Calculating for data availability levels

B-series fabric groups
In B-series routing configurations, devices in different fabrics can be grouped to form LSANs. An LSAN is similar to a Fibre Channel zone, but can extend through a router to include devices in other fabrics. This configuration, which includes the physical fabrics (subnetworks), LSANs, and router, is called a Meta SAN. A Meta SAN consolidates multiple fabrics into a single entity. Figure 14 (page 48) shows Fabric 1, Fabric 2, and Fabric 3, each containing one or more switches. Any B-series switch can be used in these fabrics. In each fabric, the switches must use the same version of switch firmware for like switches and must have the same variable settings (for example, R_A_TOV). Each fabric has a unique set of fabric services. For fabric restrictions, see B-series switches and fabric rules (page 81).
48 Fibre Channel routing
Fabrics connected with routing must comply with configuration rules for a routed fabric. See 1606 Extension SAN Switch and DC Dir Switch MP Extension Blade fabric rules (page 95), Fibre Channel routing, 400 MP Router, and MP Router Blade fabric rules (page 97), and MP Router fabric rules (page 101). The fabrics can have identical domain names and zoning definitions. The 1606 Extension SAN Switches or DC Dir Switch MP Extension Blades and MP Routers also provide FCIP capabilities, allowing implementation of Fibre Channel routing and FCIP SAN extension. See Integration of Fibre Channel routing and FCIP (page 59).
B-series fabric partitioning using Virtual Fabrics
In B-series configurations, a switched fabric is partitioned into several Virtual Fabrics (Figure 15 (page 48)). Each Virtual Fabric has its own set of resources, such as administrator and users, Name Server, and zoning database. Devices can be shared across multiple Virtual Fabric administrative domains using IFR, thus increasing resource sharing. B-series Virtual Fabrics and Virtual Fabrics with IFR are included on all B-series switches using firmware 5.2x (or later) without the need for a router.
In B-series configurations, a switched fabric is partitioned into several logical switches and logical fabrics by using the Virtual Fabrics feature. See Figure 15 (page 48). Logical switches within a physical switch can be created by dividing the switch ports and assigning them to individual logical switches. An FID also must be configured to each logical switch. A logical fabric is a fabric that contains at least one logical switch; but logical switches can be connected to other logical switches with the same FID to form logical fabrics across multiple switches. Devices can be shared across multiple logical fabrics using IFR, thus increasing resource sharing. B-series Virtual Fabrics and Virtual Fabrics with IFR are included on B-series switch models: DC SAN Backbone Director, DC04 Director, 8/80 SAN Switch and 8/40 SAN Switch only.

Fibre Channel SAN boot or iSCSI server boot through the MP Router is not supported. For redundancy, HP recommends using a minimum of two EX_Ports (MP Router ISLs) for each fabric connected to the MP Router. The number of EX_Ports required is based on the performance requirements for all devices shared by fabrics through the MP Router. For initial settings, calculate the number of EX_Ports using a 5:1 ratio of standard ISLs or switch device ports to MP Router EX_Port ISLs. Monitor port performance to determine if this ratio is acceptable based on usage. Use the portperfshow command to monitor MP Router port performance. For very high bandwidth requirements and applications, use a ratio of 3:1 or 1:1.
Supports routing between B-series secured and nonsecured edge fabrics using Secure Fabric OS. This requires MP Router firmware 7.4 or later. Supports routing between B-series and M-series edge fabrics. This requires MP Router firmware 7.4 (or later), B-series firmware 2.6.2x, 3.2.x, or 5.x (or later), and M-series firmware 06.02.00-22 in Open Fabric mode. For MP Router firmware 7.4.1 or later, M-series firmware 07.01.03 and 08.02.00 are supported in Open Fabric mode. Note: Continuous Access products are not supported in routed fabrics using both B-series and M-series edge fabrics.

For the supported operating system versions, see Heterogeneous server rules (page 154). The maximum number of HBAs supported per server depends on the server model. (See the server documentation.) For Tru64 UNIX, the maximum is 64 HBAs per server when using 5.1a (or earlier), 255 HBAs per server when using 5.1b (or later). Multipath software may impose additional restrictions: Windows MPIO supports up to 32 paths per LUN. Secure Path for AIX supports up to 32 LUNs per HBA.
The maximum number of configurable LUNs per HBA target may be less based on performance requirements. VMware maximums are per VMware server, regardless of the number of guest operating systems. EVA6400/8400 is not supported with ESX 2.5.x. Windows 2000 is not supported with the EVA4400/6400/8400. EVA3000/5000 is not supported with the Xen operating system.
EVA data migration
The EVA family of Fibre Channel storage systems supports data migration using the HP StorageWorks MPX200 Multifunction Router DMS feature. This feature provides for block (LUN) level data movement between source and destination storage systems.
230 SVSP storage system rules
Bidirectional, asynchronous remote replication with automated initial normalization between source and destination (up to 150 ms one-way latency for asynchronous mirroring) NOTE: HP SVSP uses built-in iSCSI; therefore, no additional devices are required to connect HP SVSP to the intersite IP network. For network requirements for asynchronous replication, see Table 137 (page 234).
Synchronous mirroring across 100 km or (0.5 ms) one way over a Fibre Channel network Native support for up to four site campus, metropolitan, and continental disaster-tolerant configurations Front end virtual disk size of 1 GB to 16 TB Virtual disk groups to preserve write-order consistency across multiple virtual disks using the Continuous Access feature HP SAN API server-based CLI that allows scripted access to VSM I/O continuation (no application disruption) during normalization and merging, and data migration to another pool in the domain or storage array Multiple-path failover support Seamless, online, software and firmware upgrades Selective storage presentation for SAN-based data zoning Connectivity to Fibre Channel 2, 4, and 8 Gb/s switches Support for up to sixteen 4-port arrays, eight 8-port arrays, or some other combination up to 128 ports

NOTE: Long-distance asynchronous remote mirroring requires an additional domain at the other site and sufficient IP-based bandwidth between sites. For network requirements for asynchronous replication, see Table 137 (page 234). For more information, see Level 4: multiple fabrics and device paths (NSPOF) (page 41).
For more information, see the C-series Coarse Wave Division Multiplexer product documentation at http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/cwdm/index.html. NOTE: The HP CWDM multiplexer solution is not supported on B-series, H-series, or M-series switches. For more information about B-series, M-series, and C-series supported WDM devices, see Certified third-party WDM, iFCP, and SONET products (page 306).
Third-party WDM products
HP supports third-party WDM products that have been tested successfully with a wide range of HP products. See Certified third-party WDM, iFCP, and SONET products (page 306). Figure 84 (page 249) and Figure 85 (page 250) show basic WDM SAN configuration options for typical HP Continuous Access storage systems. For specific configuration options, see the Continuous Access EVA/XP Continuous Access product documentation. Figure 84 Basic WDM configuration using one long-distance fiber optic link

The configuration in Figure 85 (page 250) is high cost, but is fully redundant. HP supports the following third-party WDM products and configurations: CWDM and DWDM systems supported by the switch vendors. WDM devices that are configurable to a data rate of 1 Gb/s, 2 Gb/s, 4 Gb/s, 8 Gb/s, or 10 Gb/s Up to 500 km at 1 Gb/s, over a WDM link (switch model dependent). On certain Fibre Channel switches, there may be reduced performance at this distance. See Storage product interface, switches, and transport distance rules (page 146). Performance levels depend on the number of buffers available in the switch and the amount of application data.
For information about HP-certified third-party WDM products, see Certified third-party WDM, iFCP, and SONET products (page 306).
Extended fabric settings for Fibre Channel switches
When extending fabrics with Fibre Channel long-distance transceivers or WDM, it is important to maintain the performance of ISL connections. For information about the B-series Extended Fabrics license, see Features (page 86).
To maintain line-speed performance for extended lines over 10 km, you must configure the applicable ports for the RX BB setting. The RX BB setting cannot be changed unless the port is offline.
Using HAFM, select the Configure Ports menu option to display the Configure Ports dialog box (Figure 86 (page 253)).

Multi-protocol long-distance technology
This section describes the following storage replication technologies, which enable data transfer between SAN networks: Fibre Channel over Internet Protocol (page 253) Fibre Channel over SONET (page 258) Fibre Channel over ATM (page 259)
Fibre Channel over Internet Protocol
FCIP connects Fibre Channel fabrics over IP-based networks to form a unified SAN in a single fabric. FCIP relies on IP-based network services to provide connectivity between fabrics over LANs, MANs, or WANs. This section describes the following topics: FCIP mechanisms (page 254) FCIP link configurations (page 254) FCIP network considerations (page 255) FCIP bandwidth considerations (page 255)
Multi-protocol long-distance technology 253
FCIP gateways (page 257) Third-party QoS and data encryption FCIP products (page 257)
FCIP gateways encapsulate Fibre Channel frames into IP packets and transmit them through a tunnel in an existing IP network infrastructure. The IP tunnel is a dedicated link that transmits the Fibre Channel data stream over the IP network. On the receiving end, the FCIP gateway extracts the original Fibre Channel frames from the received IP packets and then retransmits them to the destination Fibre Channel node. The gateways also handle IP-level error recovery. NOTE: You must use the same gateway model at both ends to ensure interoperability.
Figure 98 (page 264) shows a configuration using the mpx1 with FCIP and C-series switches 10 with IVR. This provides fabric isolation between the local and remote fabrics, allowing device access without merging the fabrics. This can be implemented in all supported mpx1 FCIP 10 configurations using C-series Fibre Channel switches with IVR.

HP Continuous Access EVA 3-site configurations This section describes HP Continuous Access EVA 3-site configurations: Figure 101 (page 266) Figure 102 (page 266) Figure 103 (page 267) Figure 104 (page 268)
The first three configurations (Figure 101 (page 266) through Figure 103 (page 267)) provide a fan-in or fan-out relationship between sites. The fourth configuration (Figure 104 (page 268)) provides for a peer-to-peer relationship between all sites. Figure 101 (page 266) shows connectivity for three sites using four mpx1 gateways, which 10 implements the minimum-level and lowest-cost connectivity for a 3-site configuration. Figure 102 (page 266) shows additional connectivity and redundancy using six mpx1 gateways. 10 Figure 103 (page 267) shows the highest level of 3-site connectivity using eight mpx1 gateways. 10 The following configuration rules apply to Figure 101 (page 266) through Figure 103 (page 267) (fan-in/fan-out): For Site 1, Site 2 or Site 3 can function as the remote site. For Site 2 or Site 3, Site 1 can function as the remote site. Replication between Site 2 and Site 3 is not supported.
