HP StorageWorks XP Data Integrity Check (also known as Database Validator)
Overview Data Integrity Check provides the XP disk array with an added level of data protection when deployed in Oracle database environments. Implementing Oracle's Hardware Assisted Resilient Data (HARD) framework, it detects and corrects potential data corruption introduced in the data I/O path and helps customers avoid unplanned downtime. It can be deployed in HP UX/LVM and Sun Solaris/VxVM environments. It is also supported in MC/ServiceGuard for HP UX environments. When implemented in a complete Oracle HARD/XP disk array solution, Data Integrity Check works in conjunction with Oracle HARD enabled databases to ensure that possible data corruptions emanating from the connectivity path between the server and the XP disk array are detected and rejected before they are committed to storage. If an invalid/corrupt I/O is detected, Data Integrity Check rejects the I/O and reports the rejection to server and requests I/O retransmission. At the same time, a SIM event message is passed to c track for remote notification. Data Integrity Check works in combination with other XP disk array hardware and software to provide a complete Oracle HARD implementation. XP24000/XP20000 Disk Arrays Included with HP StorageWorks XP Array Manager, with the name Database Validator.

XP1024/XP128 Array Firmware
Capacity-licensed XP Software
Many XP software titles are licensed based on some measure of the storage capacity of the system. This structure allows customer costs for software to scale with the cost for their hardware solution. In all cases, a 1TB increment is the smallest increment available. Therefore, for all capacity requirement calculations, capacity figures should be rounded up to the next highest TB.
Capacity-licensed XP24000/XP20000 Software Product Structure
The XP24000 and XP20000 have two capacity-based licensing structures. Most capacity-based software is licensed using a "band" structure. HP StorageWorks XP Thin Provisioning Software is licensed using a "block" structure.
Band-based Capacity-licensed XP24000/XP20000 Software Product Structure
Band-based capacity-licensed XP24000/XP20000 Disk Array Software licenses are ordered in 1TB increments only, with different 1TB license types corresponding to each of the capacity "band" product numbers of the software product structure: Description Product Number Base License T52xxAA 1TB increment, 0TB to 6TB T52xxAB 1TB increment, 7TB to 15TB T52xxAC 1TB increment, 16TB to 31TB T52xxAD 1TB increment, 32TB to 63TB T52xxAE 1TB increment, 64TB to 127TB T52xxAF 1TB increment, 128TB to 255TB T52xxAG 1TB increment, 256TB to 511TB T52xxAH 1TB increment, Over 511TB T52xxAJ Customers purchase the Base License and then purchase all capacity licenses under a fixed schedule depending on the license capacity required. All capacity figures should be rounded up to the nearest TB. Purchase of capacity-based software falls into two categories: New Software purchase: Software licenses are being purchased along with a new XP Family array or for a new software purchase for an existing XP array implementation. License Capacity upgrade purchase: A customer is adding raw storage capacity to their system or expanding the use of certain software titles, requiring that they expand the license capacity by purchasing additional LTU products. NOTE: Because of the band pricing structure, if your configuration is near the top of a band, compare the price of the entry point of the next higher band to see if it might provide a lower price. For example, consider 31TB of XP Array Manager. 31TB is at the top of the third band. If you move up to the next band and buy 32TB instead, you will find that the price for 32TB is actually lower than the price for 31TB.
10TB Base License - brings the installation up to 10TB 1 T5227AA 15-TB Block LTU - brings the installation up to 25TB 1 T5227AB 2: Example 2 Customer wants frame unlimited licensing for HP StorageWorks XP Thin Provisioning for an XP24000. To provide a frame unlimited license capacity for the software, the customer would order the following: Description Quantity Product Number 10TB Base License - brings the installation up to 10TB 1 T5227AA 50-TB Block LTU - brings the installation up to 60TB 1 T5227AD 60-TB to Unlimited LTU - brings the installation up to "unlimited" 1 T5227AE For license capacity upgrades: The customer just purchases additional license product from the block or blocks that provide the desired upgrade capacity. There may be more than one way to acquire the desired license capacity, so be sure to compare prices and look for the least expensive alternative. 1: Example 1 Customer has 25 TB of HP StorageWorks XP Thin Provisioning already installed and wants 35 TB more for an XP24000. To provide the additional 35 TB total license capacity for the software, the customer would order the following: Description Quantity Product Number 50TB Block LTU - brings the installation up to 75TB 1 T5227AD NOTE: the 50TB block is ordered because it is less expensive than ordering the 15TB block plus the 25TB block. 2: Example 2 Customer has 25 TB of HP StorageWorks XP Thin Provisioning already installed and wants frame unlimited licensing for an XP24000. To provide a frame unlimited license capacity for the software, the customer would order the following: Description Quantity Product Number 50TB Block LTU - brings the installation up to 75TB 1 T5227AD 60-TB to Unlimited LTU - brings the installation up to "unlimited" 1 T5227AE NOTE: Once the sum of installed capacity and new blocks equals or exceeds 60 TB, the customer can order the "60 TB to Unlimited LTU" product. The 50 TB block is ordered because it is less expensive than ordering the 15 TB block plus the 25 TB block.
Capacity-licensed XP12000/XP10000 Software Product Structure
For capacity-licensed Software for XP12000/XP10000 Disk Arrays licenses are ordered in 1TB increments only, with different 1TB license types corresponding to each of the capacity "tier" product numbers of the software product structure: Description Product Number 1TB increment, 0-1TB - base License-to-Use product HIT/T17xxAA 1TB increment, 2TB to 6TB HIT/T17xxAB 1TB increment, 7TB to 15TB HIT/T17xxAC 1TB increment, 16TB to 31TB HIT/T17xxAD 1TB increment, 32TB to 63TB HIT/T17xxAE Customers purchase these licenses under a fixed schedule depending on the license capacity required. All raw capacity figures should be rounded up to the nearest TB (depending on the total license capacity required). Purchase of capacity-based software falls into two categories: New Software purchase: Software licenses are being purchased along with a new XP Family array or for a new software purchase for an existing XP array implementation. License Capacity upgrade purchase: A customer is adding raw storage capacity to their system or expanding the use of certain software titles, requiring that they expand the license capacity by purchasing LTU upgrades. For new software purchase: They must purchase the first increment/tier (HIT/T17xxAA) for each software title and order up and through successive tiers to get to the total desired license capacity. Example: Customer purchases an 18TB raw capacity XP12000 and wants HP StorageWorks XP Auto LUN. This title is licensed based on the total raw capacity of the array. To provide for 18TB total license capacity for the software, the customer would order the following: Description Quantity Product Number 1TB increment-gets customer up to 1TB 1 T1715AA 1TB increment-gets customer up to 6TB 5 T1715AB 1TB increment-gets customer up to 15TB 9 T1715AC 1TB increment-gets customer up to 18TB 3 T1715AD NOTE: There is only one correct combination of licenses that would be ordered to provide the required total license capacity. For license capacity upgrades: The customer just purchases additional license product to provide the desired total license capacity starting with the existing license capacity and "picking up" in the structure starting from that point. In these cases, the customer determines the existing array capacity (raw or used as appropriate), the existing License Capacity for those software products, the additional raw storage or used capacity that will be added, and calculates the amount of additional license capacity required. Example: Customer has an 11.5TB raw capacity system with existing 12TB installed license capacity of XP Auto LUN. They then buy 4 TB raw upgrade disk (bringing the total raw storage capacity of the array up to 15.5 TB). In this case, the customer requires at least 3.5 TB (15.5 TB - 12 TB) additional license capacity of XP Auto LUN in order to "cover" the new total raw capacity of the array. Rounding 3.5 TB up to the nearest TB, they customer needs to purchase 4 TB license capacity for a total of 16 TB: Description Quantity Product Number 1TB increment-gets customer up to 15 TB 3 T1715AC 1TB increment-gets customer up to 16 TB 1 T1715AD
on mainframe-configured raw disk capacity of the array, plus usable mainframe-configured capacity of external storage) For these titles, customers license the use of the software by purchasing License products that "cover" them for the amount of physical (raw) storage capacity present on their array (i.e. for the total nominal storage capacity represented by all installed disk array groups in the array excluding spare disks). NOTE: The XP20000 can be configured as an external storage controller with large quantities of externally attached storage and without any internal disks. In this case, the XP20000 has 0TB of raw internal storage (no internal disks). In order to turn on the function of a raw-capacity licensed title, you must install 1TB of the software even though the array has 0TB of internal storage.

Used Capacity-licensed Software Titles
The following XP Family Software Titles are licensed based on the amount of storage actually employed by the Software: HP StorageWorks XP Replication Manager (Licensed capacity must be greater than or equal to the sum of the purchased license capacities of the following replication products installed on that array: HP StorageWorks XP Business Copy, HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access Sync, HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access Async, and HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access Journal) HP StorageWorks XP External Storage (Capacity must be purchased to cover the usable LUN's configured as external storage) For XP20000: this product has a frame unlimited license HP StorageWorks XP Thin Provisioning (licensed on the capacity of the thin provisioning pool) HP StorageWorks LUN Security XP Extension Hitachi LDEV Guard HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access / XP Continuous Access Synchronous (includes Hitachi TrueCopy for Mainframe) Used capacity = Continuous Access Synch P-Vols and S-Vols plus TrueCopy P-Vols and S-Vols HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access Extension / XP Continuous Access Asynchronous (includes Hitachi TrueCopy Async for Mainframe) Used capacity = Open Systems P-Vols and S-Vols plus Mainframe P-Vols and S-Vols. HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access Journal (includes Hitachi Universal Replicator for Mainframe) Used capacity = Open Systems P-Vols and S-Vols plus Mainframe P-Vols and S-Vols.

1. 2. 3. Software
The Pool volume size = XxYxZ (rounded up to the next TB) Example: Based on a customer's total storage need, they have 300 P-Vols, each sized at 100GB (30,000GB, dividing by 1024 to convert to TB gives 29.3 TB, rounded to the next highest TB: 30TB total). The customer wants to keep 7 generations of Snapshot V-Vols. Finally, it has been estimated that 4.7GB of data will be updated between each generation. The customer must purchase license capacity to cover all LUNs being managed as a Snapshot XP P-Vol or V-Vol. In this case, the total used capacity would be calculated as follows: Used Capacity = P-Vol (source) LUNs + Pool volume size = 30TB + (4.7GBx7x300 = 9,870GB, dividing by 1024 to convert to TB gives 9.64 TB, rounded to the next highest TB: 10TB) for a total licensing requirement of 40TB Snapshot requires a V-Vol management area in Shared Memory. The Shared Memory requirement for the V-Vol management area is the sum of the P-Vol information capacity requirement + the Pool Volume information capacity requirement. See the Snapshot Users Guide for complete details regarding configuring Shared Memory for Snapshot. Shared Memory requirements differ between XP Disk Array models. For the XP24000/XP20000: For the XP24000 with just the basic Shared Memory Adapter (one AE155A) configured, and for the XP20000 with just the basic Shared Memory Adapter (one AE192A) configured, up to 4 TB of pool volume capacity is available. More pool capacity is available for the XP24000 by installing the optional Shared Memory Adapter (second AE155A) and additional Shared Memory. The XP20000 does not support the optional Shared Memory Adapter and is limited to the amount of Pool capacity supported by the basic Shared Memory Adapter. For the XP12000/XP10000: Snapshot on the XP12000 also requires the optional Shared Memory Platform Board and additional Shared Memory (SM) to store control information about the tracks that have been updated in the P-Vol and are, therefore, referenced by the V-Vol. The XP10000 also requires additional Shared Memory for Snapshot, but since the XP10000 does not support the optional Shared Memory Platform Board, it supports a much smaller Snapshot capacity than the XP12000. The XP10000 can allocate 342MB x 2 in SM. The XP12000 can allocate up to 2048MB x 2 in SM. Calculating the required SM for Snapshot is a function of the capacity of the Primary Volumes (P-Vols) and the Pool Volume. The SM requirement for the P-Vols = P-Vol capacity / 256KB) x 4B x 1.08. The SM requirement for the Pool Volume = (Pool Volume capacity / 256KB) x 32B. The sum of these two requirements is the total SM requirement. This number must be rounded up to the nearest 512MB increment. Example: Using the same example above, the SM requirement for the P-Vols = (30TB / 256KB) x 4 x 1.08 = 502MB. The SM requirement for the Pool Volume = (9,870GB 256KB) x 32 (1024 1024) = 1234MB. Therefore, the total SM requirement for SM is 502MB + 1234MB = 1736MB. By rounding up, the optional SM boards would have to be configured with 2048MB of cache. For HP StorageWorks XP HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access Conversion licenses are used to convert an installed Continuous Access product to another Continuous Access product. The permitted conversions are: Continuous Access XP12000/XP10000 Conversion: XP Continuous Access Sync to XP Continuous Access Async XP Continuous Access Sync to XP Continuous Access Journal XP Continuous Access Async to XP Continuous Access Journal XP24000/XP20000

Service and cable routing space requirements
This section contains information about space requirements and floor loading for the HP Disk Array XP128.
HP recommends that you prepare a revised floor plan showing the overall location and arrangement of your computer room, including the addition of your disk array. Enough room and lighting should be provided for people to work effectively on a daily basis and for periodic servicing of equipment. Be sure to consider interconnecting cables and power cord lengths when planning your layout. Identify the location of all power outlets on the floor plan. Plan to keep cables away from traffic areas to help prevent accidents and equipment failures. Prior to installation, consult your site specialist responsible for your computer room. HP strongly discourages the use of carpeting, including antistatic varieties, within 6.0 m (20 ft.) of the disk array. If this advice is not followed, you should place static discharge mats where personnel must walk before touching any part of the array. Failure to comply with this precaution can result in equipment damage through static discharge. If you are planning to construct a new computer room or modify an existing site, first consult with your HP representatives and local contractors. It is important to plan the site with future expansion in mind, so equipment can be added without disturbing the computer operation.
Floor construction and loading
The computer room floor must be able to support the total weight of the equipment as well as localized weight at each caster or foot of the equipment cabinets. A common method of preparing an adequate floor for a computer room is to construct a raised floor over the building floor. The weight should be spread evenly and the flooring should provide an area through which interconnecting cables can be run conveniently and
unobtrusively. It should allow for optimum distribution of conditioned air. Raised floor access ramps must not exceed 10 slope. To estimate floor strength, you should consider the following items: The total weight of the equipment (the unpacked and packaged weights are listed in this chapter) The total weight of furniture such as desks, chairs, and storage cabinets Total approximate weight of computer room personnel Weight of moving equipment such as forklifts, dollies, and so on. Any questions regarding the adequacy of construction should be referred to and evaluated by a qualified structural engineer. Caution In addition to determining the adequacy of the computer site floor, ensure that all floors, stairs, and elevators which might be used when the disk array is moved to its destination can support the weight and size of the equipment. Failure to comply can result in damage to the equipment or the facility.
Maximum floor loading
Maximum point floor loading is 500 kg (1102.3 lbs). The table below shows the floor load rating required for different service clearances (minimum configuration).
Clearance (C) (m) Floor Load Rating (kg/m2) C=0 C=0.2 C=0.4 C=0.6 C=1.0

Safety and dedicated earth ground
The primary reason for earth grounding electrical systems is safety. The safety ground is required by the National Electric Code (USA) and most other local, regional, and national codes. In addition to safety ground, HP requires that a dedicated (earth reference) ground be installed as a common reference point for all system components. You should consult with your HP CE and your electrician to ensure that your electrical system meets all local and national safety codes.
Your disk array must meet all of the following conditions: An insulated grounding conductor that is identical in size, insulation material, and thickness to the ungrounded branch-circuit supply conductors. It should be green, with or without yellow stripes, and is to be installed as a part of the branch circuit that supplies the unit or system. This means the ground conductor must be run in the same conduit, armored cable, or other cable bundle as the phase wires. Grounding as prescribed by your local country codes. The grounding conductor mentioned above should be grounded to earth at the service equipment or other acceptable building earth ground such as the building frames (in the case of a high rise steel frame structure). IT configured grounding systems are not certified for use with the XP128 as these grounding systems may not have solidly conductor-connected grounded power systems and/or they may have resistive impedance inserted in ground and/or neutral lines. The XP128 requires a solidly conductor-connected ground and may require a separate neutral in the case of WYE or STAR connections.
When receptacles are used to connect your disk array to AC power, they must include a dedicated ground connection that is insulated from the receptacle. It is important that the receptacle box be grounded with an additional ground connection that is separate from the dedicated ground. The additional ground can be hard conduit. Each disk array cabinet has two or four separate connections to AC power. For disk array cabinets with two connections to AC power, each input must be capable of supporting the entire current demand for the cabinet. For disk array cabinets with four connections to AC power, the two inputs to AC Box 1 or the two inputs to AC Box 2 must be capable of supporting the entire current demand for the cabinet. The figure below shows two examples of the fault-tolerant operation of the disk array.
Specific power plugs and receptacles are required for the XP128, depending on the power option you specify when ordering the HP Disk Array XP128. The power cords on 60 Hz cabinets are shipped with plugs attached. The power cords on 50 Hz cabinets are shipped without plugs. Customers are responsible for having the correct plugs and receptacles installed by an electrician in compliance with local electrical requirements and practices. Caution When installing the receptacles, the electrician must ensure that each receptacle has its own neutral (if required) and ground. Using the same neutral/ground for more than one circuit causes voltage loss and heat problems. It can create a fire hazard. A shared neutral conductor that fails open-circuit can cause overvoltage damage to equipment.

Power line transients
Heavy electrical loads from nearby machinery or equipment (elevators, electric welders, etc.) can cause intermittent system problems with sophisticated electronic equipment, even if that equipment is on a separate circuit breaker. When faced with these conditions, you should provide a separate, completely independent power panel with an isolated ground and circuit breaker coming directly from the main building power source or secondary power source. If necessary, your HP CE can measure your power line noise level and make recommendations concerning the use of line treatment devices.
Maximum peak inrush and crest factor
The maximum peak inrush currents for the HP Disk Array XP128 are listed in the table below.
Power Single-Phase Three-Phase
86 A for 10ms 135 A for 10ms
N/A 135 A for 10ms
The crest factors for the HP Disk Array XP128 are listed in the table below.
Sources of electrical interference
Ensure that the disk array is protected from sources of electrical interference: wall outlets Convenience power outlets for building maintenance equipment (vacuum cleaners, floor buffers, etc.) must be wired from circuit breakers on a power panel separate from the computer system panel. The ground wires from these outlets must be connected to the normal building distribution panel and not to the system ground. If a separate power source and separate ground are not provided, operation of janitorial equipment can induce electrical noise and cause abnormal operation of the computer system. Your electrician can verify whether or not maintenance outlets are on separate panels. lightning In some geographical areas it may by advisable to install lightning protection for both personnel and computer systems. The principles of lightning protection and personnel safety are outlined in detail in the lightning protection code contained in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Handbook. vibration Continuous vibration can cause a slow degradation of mechanical parts and, when severe, can cause data errors in disk drives. Mechanical connections such as printed circuit assembly (PCA) conductors, cable connectors, and processor backplane wiring can also be affected by vibrations. The disk array is specifically designed to reduce its susceptibility to radiated and conducted interference. Electromagnetic interference can cause a variety of system problems. Your HP CE can advise you about many of the most common causes of electromagnetic interference.
If metal is used in the construction of the raised floor, ensure that there is a common ground connection between the raised floor and main floor to avoid possible build up of different voltage potentials. Failure to comply can result in serious injury to personnel and damage to equipment. Fundamental safeguards for disk arrays should include a site well away from any sources of potential damage. The system should not be installed or operated in an environment where there is a risk of fire or explosion due to the presence of highly flammable gases, volatile liquids, or combustible dust. Airborne contaminants and particles of a certain size and hardness can damage your disk arrays. Some of the most common contaminants are dust, smoke, ash, eraser debris, food crumbs, and salty air. Your HP CE can assist you in determining whether or not you need be concerned about airborne contaminants. Also, see Dust and pollution control (page 53) and Metallic particulate contamination (page 53).
Three-phase AC cabling for USA
Each three-phase HP Disk Array XP128 has two main disconnect devices (two main breakers for dual power lines) so that AC power to the unit can be supplied from separate power distribution panels with two power-supply cords. Trained service personnel should be present whenever the disk array is being connected to a new power source for the first time.
Connecting the external power supply cord
Three-phase HP Disk Array XP128s are factory-configured for 30-amp power.
30-amp, three-phase power
When the disk array uses 30-amp, three-phase input power, HP Disk Array XP128s have two power cords as shown in the figure below. If one power source malfunctions, the other power source assumes the total load, providing uninterrupted operation. HP recommends that each power cord have a separate electrical circuit as its source in case of a circuit failure. Each power-supply cord is supplied with an attachment plug type Russellstoll 3760PDG. Be sure to install Russellstoll 3934 (alternate, 9C34U0) or 3754 (alternate, 39R34U0W) socket receptacles between the power distribution panel of the building and the attachment plugs for the XP128.
The power cords provided with your 30-amp, three-phase disk array are non-shielded, type ST or equivalent, with four #8 AWG (minimum) conductors terminated at one end with an assembled plug connector.
Branch circuit requirements
To protect your disk array, your building must be wired correctly. Each supply (hot) conductor must be protected by a short-circuit protective device and by an overcurrent protective device. The current specifications for the overcurrent protective devices required for three-phase operation are listed in the table on page 34. All protective devices must comply with national standards of the country where the units are to be installed. If a protective device interrupts any supply conductor, it must also interrupt all other supply conductors. Overcurrent protection is not required for the neutral conductor of this unit. Only 50 Hz, three-phase configurations have a neutral conductor.
The HP Disk Array XP128 can be factory-configured for 50-amp or 30-amp, single-phase power.
50-amp, single-phase power
The 50-amp HP Disk Array XP128 cabinet has two power-supply cords with attachment plug type Russellstoll 9P53U2 as shown in the figure below. Be sure to install Russellstoll 9C53U2 or Russellstoll 9R53U2W socket receptacles between the power distribution panel of the building and the attachment plugs for the unit.
The power cords provided with your disk array are non-shielded, type ST or equivalent with three #6 AWG (minimum) conductors terminated at one end with an assembled 9P53U2 plug connector.
30-amp, single-phase power
The 30-amp HP Disk Array XP128 cabinet has four power-supply cords with attachment plug type Russellstoll 3750DP as shown in the figure below. Be sure to install Russellstoll 9C33U0 or 9R33U0W socket receptacles between the buildings power distribution panel and the attachment plugs for each unit.
30 A 30 A
The power cords that are provided with your disk array are nonshielded, type SJT or equivalent with three #10 AWG (minimum) conductors that are terminated at one end with an assembled plug connector.
To protect your disk array, your building must be wired correctly. Each supply (hot) conductor must be protected by a short-circuit protective device and by an overcurrent protective device. The current specifications for the overcurrent protective devices required for single-phase operation are listed in the table on page 33. The protective device must comply with national standards of the country where the units is to be installed (USA). If a protective device interrupts a supply conductor, it must also interrupt all other supply conductors. Note In many cases, local codes do not allow a branch circuit fitted with a 50-amp receptacle or connector to be protected by an overcurrent protection device with a rating lower than 50 amps. You can order your HP Disk Array XP128 with the 30-amp power option to comply with these local codes. Your electrician knows the appropriate code requirements for your location/site.
Single-phase cabling for Europe
When configured for 50-amp, single-phase power, the HP Disk Array XP128 cabinet has two power cords and two main disconnect devices so that AC power can be supplied from separate power distribution panels. When configured for 30-amp, single-phase power, the HP Disk Array XP128 cabinet has four power cords and four main disconnect devices. Caution Trained service personnel should be present whenever the disk array is being connected to a new power source for the first time.
Connecting the power supply cord
50-amp power cords
The 50-amp HP Disk Array XP128 cabinet has two power-supply cords. The power cords included with the unit are type H07RN-F or equivalent with three 10 mm2 conductors. Caution Be sure to connect the power cords to the distribution panel as shown in the figure below. Improper wiring of the neutral conductor may cause damage to your disk array. To reduce the risk of a wrong connection, you should use a plug and socket that is approved for this disk array. It is your electricians responsibility to select and install the proper plug.
Receiving your HP Disk Array XP128
Your HP Disk Array XP128 is shipped directly from HP. If your disk array is part of a system order, HP coordinates the shipment of equipment from all locations so that it arrives at your site at approximately the same time. In some cases, factors beyond the control of HP can cause delivery delays. If you have not received your equipment within a two-week period, notify your HP sales representative. The HP sales representative will trace your order and expedite delivery. Caution Be sure to allow for size and weight in regard to placing the disk array at its installation site. Refer to Dimensions (page 22) for specific size and weight values.
Checking for shipping shortage and damage
As your disk array arrives, check the carriers bill of lading carefully to ensure that all items shipped by HP are delivered. Notify the carrier immediately if there are any discrepancies or items missing. Inspect all of the shipping containers for signs of damage before actually unpacking the equipment. Some typical signs of shipping damage are dents, scratches, cuts, or water marks. If any damage is found, note on the bill of lading that there is apparent damage subject to inspection. Arrange for the carriers representative and a representative from Hewlett-Packard to be present when the item in question is unpacked. Regardless of the circumstances, the HP CE will take immediate action to replace any damaged components without waiting for the settlement of claims.
Unpacking the cartons
The equipment cartons can be unpacked at your convenience; it is your responsibility to have the equipment unpacked and moved to its proper installation location prior to the day of installation. The disk array frame is very heavy. In a maximum configuration, it weighs more than 1700 pounds. It is recommended that three (3) people unpack and move this equipment to avoid injury. Retain the packing list (invoice) for each carton that is to be unpacked and ensure that each item on the list can be accounted for. Contact your HP sales representative immediately if there are any missing items, or if the items are not the same as you ordered. Leave the sealed cartons or packages of CDs, cables, and any other installation hardware intact for the HP CE. Your HP CE and HP ASE will install and configure the disk array.
ACP Array control processor. The ACP handles the passing of data between the cache and the physical drives held in the DKU. ACPs work in pairs, providing a total of eight SCSI buses. Each SCSI bus associated with one ACP is paired with a SCSI bus on the other ACP pair element. In the event of an ACP failure, the redundant ACP takes control. Both ACPs work together sharing the load. Arbitrated loop. Arbitrated loop physical address. The ratio of allocated storage capacity versus total capacity as a percentage. Allocated storage refers to those LDEVs that have paths assigned to them. The allocated storage capacity is the sum of the storage of these LDEVs. Total capacity refers to the sum of the capacity of all LDEVs on the disk array. A group of 4 or 8 physical hard disk drives (HDDs) installed in an XP disk array and assigned a common RAID level. RAID1 array groups are made up of 4 HDDs (2D+2D). A RAID1 group is two 4 HDD array groups concatenated together (4D+4D). RAID5 array groups are made up of 4 or 8 HDDs, depending on whether they are RAID5 3D+1P or RAID5 7D+1P, respectively. All RAID6 array groups are made up of 8 HDDs (6D+2P). Application System Engineer. The HP StorageWorks Business Copy XP software program, which enables you to maintain up to nine internal copies of logical volumes on the disk array.
AL AL-PA allocation
The HP StorageWorks Continuous Track XP software program, which detects internal hardware component problems on a disk array and automatically reports them to the HP STC. The HP StorageWorks Continuous Access XP program, which enables you to replicate data stored on a local disk array to a remote disk array. Very high speed memory that is used to speed I/O transaction time. All reads and writes to the XP array family are sent to the cache. The data is buffered there until the transfer to/from physical disks (with slower data throughput) is complete. The benefit of cache memory is that it speeds I/O throughput to the application. The larger the cache size, the greater the amount of data buffering that can occur and the greater throughput to the applications. XP arrays support a range of cache memory. In the event of power loss, battery power holds up the contents of cache for up to 36 hours.

Customer engineer. The channel adapter (CHA) provides the interface between the disk array and the external host system. Occasionally this term is used synonymously with the term channel host interface processor (CHIP). Synonymous with the term channel adapter (CHA).
The processors located on the channel adapter (CHA). Synonymous with CHIP. A volume on the disk array that accepts Continuous Access or Business Copy control operations which are then executed by the disk array. To organize the storage space attached to the DKC, you can group similarly configured logical devices (LDEVs) with unique control unit images (CUs). CUs are numbered sequentially. The disk array supports a certain number of CUs, depending on the disk array model. Each CU can manage multiple LDEVs. Therefore, to uniquely identify a particular LDEV requires both the CU number and the LDEV number.
