Re: Storageworks 2200

Joe:


The only device that I know of that has "2200" in the model is the M2200 HSG80 Controller Shelf. There might be other model units that have utilized the number, but my only experience is with the M2200.

Storage systems that utilized the M2200 include the MA8000 and the EMA12000 an the ESA16000(i think).

You can start here...
" http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00312406/c00312406.pdf "

This doc was found here...

Re: Storageworks 2200

That would be the enclosure I am looking for but the links you provided only led me to the hsg80 manual, which I have. I was more interested in the manual for the enclosure itself.

Re: Storageworks 2200

I do not think there is a manual since... you can't use the shelf for anything else. It only holds the HSG80's, Cache batteries and modules and interconnects your storage shelves. Without any one of these components, the shelf is just a doorstop.

I could be mistaken, but I do not think there is a specific "doc" for theshelf. And if there is, it's probably just some specs and "care in handling" info.

Are you looking for some specific information? or just to say "I have a manual"?

Re: Storageworks 2200

When I pluged it in there are a series of lights on the front of the unit. I am not really familiar with this unit or fibre technology. I am learning as I go along. There are to yellow(amber) light on, I guess what you called, cache battery moduals in the front of the unit. What does that mean?

Thanks

Re: Storageworks 2200

Joe:

Across the fron the the 2200 are..


AB-AB-F1-F2-F3-BB-BB

"A" being Side "A"
"B" being Battery
"F" being FAN

At any given poiont in time, you will only have 1 battery per side, unless you are performing a battery swap using the field replacement utility (FRUTIL) on the hsg80 controller.

If you are seeing amber lighs above/below a battery slot, I believe it means that the battery is charging up and the amber should go green once finished. If it does not go green, then you may need to replace the battery.

At the far right side there is an EMU with 3 lihts on it (as far as I can remember). Power, health and .


Hope this helps... still looking for a doc. If you have the platform kit, look at the cd, there might be a pdf for the unit.

Re: Storageworks 2200

the amber lights are on the AB BB moduals. I have had the unit pluged in and running for 3 days and the lights are still amber. Also the EMU as you call it has a 2 digit display. If I hit one of the 2 buttons on the EMU the display shows a couple of different characters. Any idea what they mean?

And after a more carefull look at the docs I did get with it, the manual I have is for a " ACS ver 8.6 Guide ". I am assuming that is the array controller software for the HSG80 that is on the flash cards in the unit. Is that correct?

Jue:

"I am assuming that is the array controller software for the HSG80 that is on the flash cards in the unit. Is that correct?" - Yes. ACS is up to 8.8 now.

If the amber lights are still amber, you probably need new batteries. I am almost sure that means that the batteries are less than 50% charged and by now... should be more than 50%. Has this uit\\nit been off for a long time?

As for the EMU... I am not sure what all the codes are, but am pretty sure they are listed in one of the docs. Try downloading the platform kit iso image to get the rest of the docs in electronic format. One of the docs pertains to the M2200.


" http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/acs/platformsolutionkits/index.html "

The 8.7 kit should be fine as the hardware hasn't changes, only the ACS.

Re: Storageworks 2200

I downloaded the 8.7 iso as you said and could not find any docs pertaining to the hardware. Only software. But i am assuming I need this software anyway.

As far as the unit, I dont have any idea how long it sat unpowered. It came as part of a lot with a rack full of other compaq items. All of which I am, one by one, trying to learn about and get up and running.

Do you think I need to get new batteries or will the unit function properly the way it is. I only ask because I dont know what the batteries are for, thats why I was looking for a manual

Re: Storageworks 2200

The batteries are the untis sitting in the front of the shelf in AA or AB and in BA or BB.

I believe the unit will function properly, but will squalk about the batteries bit charging sufficiently.


I was almost positive there was some soft versions (pdf's) of the docs on the disk. I will take a look at the 8.6 cd i have in a bit.

Re: Storageworks 2200

Yep. looks like the 8.7 CD does not have the docs.


The docs ARE on the 8.6 CD though. If you give me a location I cn ftp them to you, I will zip them up and send. About 20MB uncompressed.

or I can give you a place to download them from, might be better for you. Not sure if the cd image is available online anymore. Might be.

One of the docs you can try to look for is aa-rfa9f.pdf. It has some pictures in it and talks about the M2200 and components. Also, G80MSA01.pdf has some good into too.

I can e-mail the 2 docs, they only 4MB. all the docs are 20mb though. Give me an e-mail address if you can.

Re: Storageworks 2200

Steve,

Thanks for the image. I have one more question reguarding the maintance port cable. Do I have to use the HP/Compaq cable or will any DB9 to RJ11 cable do. I cant seem to find one anywhere. Hp doesnt even have it. It seems I cant set the unit up without it

Thanks

Re: Storageworks 2200

I suppose that as long as you have the right pin out, you can use any cable. Unfortunately, I do not know the pinout, but it can't be too hard to figure out. There are only 4 pins in use.

Someone here might know it though.

Pin-out of the maintenance port is attached -
the default speed is 9600bps.

Re: Storageworks 2200

Do you have the pin out for the DB9 side. All the adapters I can find come unwired on the DB9 side

It's the "standard" PC pinout which I don't have handy at the moment, sorry.
