    12. FlexPower Manager Storage Pool Characteristics • A group of one or more physical drives • Number of drives selected defines levels of RAID support • The foundation for virtual drives • At least one storage pool must be configured Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    13. FlexPower Manager Virtual Drive Characteristics • Provides server level storage • Contained within a single storage pool • Assigned to a single server • Easily reassigned • Can be assigned any RAID level that is supported by the host storage pool Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    14.

    16. FlexPower ManagerDual Controller Mode When in dual controller Mode you have a new option when creating a virtual disk : » Controller Afffinity. To install an operating system affinity MUST be set to SCM1. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    17. FlexPower ManagerDual Controlle/Operating System Point of View • When a second Storage Controller Module is installed, each Compute Module is presented with two paths to the same virtual disk; however, only one path can ever be active at a time. • After Windows has been installed, updated Storport and MPIO device drivers must be installed to manage these multiple paths and to provide failover to an alternate path in the event of a failure of the currently active path. • Those Drivers are available on Express Builder Minimum revision 16.1.0 Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    18. FlexPower ManagerAffinity Settings • Once installedaffinitycanbechanged Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    19. FlexPower Manager – Expansion Port • This port is managed under the Storage control Module • This port can be configured to be accessed by one or several compute Module • This port will support only Tape Libraries • Be carefull when a tape library is connected to this Port only one compute module will have to be configured in the « expansion port » section. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    20. FlexPower Manager Switch Module View • Select Chassis Back tab or Switches in left navigation pane • Select a switch • Actions menu options • Edit Ports • Reset • Advanced UI • Information tabs • General • Events • Ports Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    23. Report Menu • Report Menu Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    24. FlexPower Manager Collecting System Information • Reporting Options • Storage Layout : Wich Disks is connectedt to wich server ? • Events : All events from all systems in the Flexpower sorted by date/description/severity/User • Dashboard : Default Page providing the main informations ( System Health, Temperature, Power Load, …) • Diagnostics : Provide system Tools ( including System Internal Communication test, capture service Data,…) Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    25. Settings Menu • Settings Menu Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    26. FlexPower Manager Configuring the Chassis Management Module • Configuration Options • Storage Menu : Activate or deactivate Hdd Write Back Cache. • IP Configuration : Set the Ip of Management Port • Date/Time : Set the local Time of your Flexpower. • SNMP : Set the Trap destination from Your Flexpower ( Snmp Strings,….) • Users : Enable Administrator to modify, create, delete Users. • Event Policies : Enable It Administrator to configure event severity and notification Process. • Notification : Provide the administrator the capability to set system alert notification destination. • Langage : Set the language used for the help menu • Feature Activation : Allow you to enable additionnal features by entering a key to purchase • Firmware : Upgrade the whole system ( Management Module, Storage Module, Bios Bmc, …) in one place • Restore settings : Enable to save parameters such as Network or password. Enable to reset to factory default. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    27. Feature activation This is the place wherecustomercan enter key to getoptionalfeaturessuch as Shared Lun or Lun copier. The customerneeds to buythosekeys. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    28. Optionnal Feature :Shared Lun The Shared LUN feature allows more than one server to read and write to a virtual drive (also known as LUN) at the same time. The ability to read/write to a shared drive is required for applications such as clustering or virtual machine migration. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    29. OptionnalFeature:Storage Management Pack • What is it? • Enables local copies of any LUN (Virtual Drive). Firmware dependent whether compute modules can be on or off to copy the virtual drive. • Simplifies tasks such as • (a) creating a local copy of a data LUN • (b) creating a new OS LUN (which can be assigned to a new compute module as the boot LUN), by copying an existing LUN which already has an OS installed in it • What are the benefits? • Local back up • Operating System provisioning/deployment • Non-Production Environment testing • Off-line and on-line RAID morphing Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    30. OptionnalFeature:Storage Management Pack Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    31. OptionnalFeature:Advanced Management Pack • What is it?Provides support for import/export of all CMM settings from one chassis to another, LDAP support for user authentication and SYSLOG support • What are the benefits? • Ability to deploy multiple chassis* with the same configuration information (including storage configuration) • Export configuration from one chassis as a zip file and import to ‘n’ number of chassis • Base FW versions must match as well as the physical storage configuration (i.e. same drive type & same number of drives) • Integration with existing LDAP implementations for seamless user authentication • Support for forwarding all events to SYSLOG for external mining by Linux based tools Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    34. Logs In order to do a diagnostic threedifferents logs needs to beasked to the customer. Those logs willbemandatorywhenraising a case to the COE attention : 1 - Reports => Diagnostics => Test => System information report 2 - Reports => Diagnostics => Service data => Complete system diagnostics 3 - Reports => Events => fichier XML Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    35. System Information Report This log willgive us a summary of the customer’s configuration in a readable HTML format. When pressing « system information report itwillget the information and ask a place to save the file. ( In a zip file called « diagout.user.htm.zip » Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    36. Complete System Diagnostic This log willgive us a summary of the customer’sdetailled configuration. When pressing « complete system diagnostics » itwillget the information and ask a place to save the file. ( In a zip file called « diagout.htm.zip ». This files isautomaticallyprotected by a passwordthatcan’tbeprovided. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    37. Event Logs The events section shows all the history of eventsthathappened on all components. By selecting « Export all » customercansendthem to us in XML format. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    38. UFU Firmware The firmware section allow us to update the UFU (UnifiedFirmware Update. This will update ALL flexpower component at once ( Bios, BMC, Storage and network switch, Etc…). This update willrequire a reboot of the main component, reboot thatcustomercanschedulehimself. Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    39. UFU Update • Be carefullwhenupdatingfrompreviousrevisionsit has to bedonestep by stepyouneed to have specific minimum revision ( For example to update to latestrevision 6.1 youneed minimum revision 2.7, etc….) • Withevery UFU revision an UFU decoderisdelivered, pleasemake sure youconsultit • Some UFU revisionaddedspecificfeature ( Shared Lun appeared in revision 2.6…) • For everyexternallibrary issue pleasemake sure customer has UFU 6.1 minimum Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -

    40. Drivers • When having an issue please make sure you have not only the latest UFU but also newest drivers. There are often updated on NEC Website. ( Under Servers/Blade section) Nec Computers SAS - Confidential - 06-2008 - FlexPower -
