Module 10 PS M4110 Components <Place supporting graphic here> Module Objectives: • Describe the indicators on the front panel of the PS-4110 array • Demonstrate how to replace a Disk Drive, Control Module or Micro SD card • Describe what an SED drive is and its benefits are. Configuration PS M4110 Front View Top Release Handle Power LED • • Blue – Good Amber - Fault Drive LEDS Serial Ports Bottom Release Handle M4110 Top View • Dual, hot-pluggable 10GbE controllers • 4GB of memory per controller, Cache to Flash Design • 1 x dedicated 10/100 management port – accessible via CMC • 14x 2.5” 6Gb/s SAS disk drives Front Back 2.5” SAS Disks Controllers Controller status LEDS Controller Module Power LED Active LED: - Green = active - Amber = secondary microSD card access PS M4110 Controller • Type 13 Controller comprised of multiple boards: – Controller Module (Host and SAS cards combined as single unit) – FIOM (Fixed I/O Module, connects to chassis infrastructure) – Equallogic firmware with iDRAC emulation – 4GB Memory – Cache to Flash based memory backup PS-M4110XS – Auto-tiering within an array Enables the performance of SSD with capacity of HDDs Mixture of SSD and spinning media within one array /member Automated data tiering within a member. Hot data placed on SSD 5 x 400GB SSD + 9 x 600GB 10K SAS HDD 7.4 TB capacity Automated data tiering within a member Optimizes Hot & Cold data placement PS-M4110 Component Replacement Identify Drives • Drive Numbering Top view Front 0 13 Identify Failed Drive • Locate the failed drive Replace a Drive 1. Remove the Bad Drive: Press the drive release button. 2. Fully open the drive release latch. 3. Remove the drive by the grabbing the drive sides. 4. Install the new drive: lift the drive release latch to its fully open position 5. Hold the drive by its carrier and insert the drive into an empty slot 6. When the drive is fully inserted as far as it can go, rotate the drive release latch to its fully closed position. 7. Push down on the latch until you hear and feel a click 3 Identify Type 13 Control Modules Top view Front CM 0 CM 1 Replace a Control Module 1. Remove the Control Module: Press the control module release button. 2. Fully open the control module release latch. 3. Remove the control module by the grabbing the sides. 4. Install the Control Module: Lift the control module release latch to its fully open position 5. Hold the control module by its carrier and insert it into the slot 6. When the control module is fully inserted as far as it can go push down on the latch until it clicks 3 MicroSD Card Replacement Procedure 1. Remove the control module from the array. 2. Remove the SD card from the control module. – Push the microSD card in its slot to release the spring mechanism. The microSD card will be partially ejected from the housing. – Gently pull the card straight out of the slot 3. Install the replacement SD card in the control module. – Align the microSD card so the arrow on the card points towards the microSD card slot in the control module – When correctly positioned, the notch on the card will correspond to the slot. – Firmly press the card into the slot until it clicks into place 4. Insert the control module into the array. Self-Encrypting Disks (SED) Self Encrypting Disks • To identify a self encrypting disk a lock symbol will be on the label. • SED drive model mixing is not supported. SED Label NonSED Label SED Disks • To determine if all disks installed are SED – Login to the group – Select the member – Issue a “show” command Self-Encrypting Disks (SEDs) States • Unsecure – Encryption is not active on this disk. When shipped from the factory, drives are unsecured. • Secure/Online – Encryption is active. Disk has been unlocked. When more than half the drives are present, they are secure and online. • Secure/Offline – Encryption is active. Disk is locked. When powered off, failed, or stolen, drives are encrypted and locked so that data is not accessible. Self-Encrypting Disks (SED) • Encryption keys used to secure data on the disk • Military-grade in real time • Dell Equallogic uses AutoSED – Works at the array level › Administrator should ensure all members in group are deployed with SED – SEDs operate in an automatic fashion – If a drive is removed from a SED array its data is immediately locked SED drives in GUI Backup encryption keys EqualLogic PS-M4110 Configurations PS-M4110E Drives – 14x 2.5”, 7,2K NL SAS 500GB or 1TB drives Up to 14TB per array, Up to 28TB per group inside blade chassis Up to 56TB, 2 groups inside blade chassis Controllers – 1 or 2, single or dual controller option PS-M4110X Drives – 14x2.5” 10K SAS 600GB or 900GB drives Up to 12.6 TB per array, Up to 25.5 TB per group inside blade chassis Up to 50.4 TB 2 groups inside blade chassis Controllers – 1 or 2, single or dual controller option PS-M4110XV Drives – 14x 2.5”, 15K SAS 300GB or 146 GB drives Up to 4.2TB per array, Up to 8.4TB per group inside blade chassis Up 16.8 TB, 2 groups inside blade chassis Controllers - 2 , dual option only PS-M4110XS Drives – 9x 2.5”, 10K SAS 600GB drives and 5x 2.5” SSD 400GB drives Up to 7.4TB per array, Up to 14.8TB per group inside blade chassis Up 29.6TB, 2 groups inside blade chassis Controllers - 2, dual option only PS M4110 • Up to four PS-M4110 array’s can be installed in one M1000e chassis • The PS-M4110 is limited to 2 PS-M4110 arrays per group • If there are four PS-M4110s in a chassis there will be at least two groups Module Summary • Now that you have completed this module you should be able to: – Describe the indicators on the front panel of the PS-4110 array – Demonstrate how to replace a Disk Drive, Control Module or Micro SD card – Describe what an SED drive is and its benefits are.
