M5314X FC Drive Enclosures

Hi All,

I am working on a massive EVA Firmware Upgrade and Expansion project that encompasses over 30 of our customers and am trying to clarify something about FC Drive Enclosures.

In the EVA Rack it is difficult to find a sticker or marking to define the Drive enclosure model and I can't see any ref to this in command view either.

Basically I want to know what the differences are between an M5314A, M5314B and M5314C and how to tell them apart!

Thanks!

Hello,

die M5314A and the M5314A are identical, but the M5314B is RoHS compliant. The M5314A is no longer available. The M5314C has a new IO module (cut through switched). You can mix B and C enclosures in an EVA.

Patrick

Re: M5314X FC Drive Enclosures

Thank you for the swift response Patrick!

Just to confirm then...

The A and B Models were Identical except B is RoHS Compliant.

A is no longer available.

C is the same as A,B except with new I/O's.

B's and C's can be mixed.

Have I got that right?

Thanks!

Also, that still doesnt help me tell what models are in our EVA...is there any visual inspection that can be done?

Hi,

mmmhh... take to product number and ask Google? :)

I don't have a EVA in my neighbourhood, so I can't take a look at the shelfs.

Re: M5314X FC Drive Enclosures

Hi,

If I remember correct:

If the hardwaretype of the io module is 01 or 02 or 03 it can be a 5314, 5314A or 5314B, if it's a EVA3000 or 5000. If the hardwaretype of the io module is 03 and it's a EVA4000/6000 or 8000 it can be a 5314A or 5314B. If it's 04 and a EVAx100, it should be a 5314C shelf.

If not, IBaltay maybe can clarify it.

Patrick

Re: M5314X FC Drive Enclosures

Hi, I have to correct some information given above:

M5314C It is supported only with EVA4100/6100/8100 configurations with HSV200-B and HSV210-B controllers. This is the only I/O module supported with this array family.

So no mixing M5314C with any other enclosure.

Do not use M5314C in anything that's not an EVAx100. We have had enough incidents with customers due to this.

The differece betweeen enclosures is basically the I/O modules:

There are 4 kinds of I/O modules:

01 - 322597-001 and 322595-001
02 - 364549-001 and 364548-001
03 - 364549-005 and 364548-005
04 - 364549-009 and 364548-009

Types 2 and 3 are used on M5314A and M5314B
Type 4 are used only on M5314C

You can remove the I/O module and look at the spare, or check hardware type of the I/O module on Command View.

Re: M5314X FC Drive Enclosures

EVA 4000/6000/8000 - Non CTS (cut through switch) I/O modules are hardware type 02 or 03

EVA 4100/6100/8100 CTS I/O modules are hardware type 04
