How to Judge that the S5100 Storage Device is Normally Started by Observing Device Indicators?

Publication Date:  2012-07-20 Views:  120 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
This case describes the startup process of the S5100, including the status of indicators on all modules and the confirmation of the startup process.
Alarm Information
None
Handling Process
After the S5100 is powered on, start it as follows:
1. When the S5100 is being powered on, the health indicator on the front of the controller enclosure is green on and the start/alarm indicator is orange on, which indicates that the system is being started. The indicators of the service network port and the management network port are blinking one by one and then off. This process is short and indicates that the system is checking the status of network ports.
2. After the system is powered on, the status of all modules on the rear panel of the controller enclosure are described as follows:
(1) The power indicators of controllers A and B are green on and the alarm indicators are red on, which indicates that controllers A and B are being started properly.
(2) The running indicator of the power module is blinking green, the fault indicator is off, and the discharge indicator is off, which indicates that the battery is being charged. After the battery is charged, the running indicator is green on.
(3) The running indicator of the power-fan module is green on, the power fault indicator is off, and the fan fault indicator is off, which indicates that the power-fan module runs properly.
3. The system scans disks quickly. The status indicators of all disks are blinking quickly from top to bottom in two lines. This process indicates that the two controllers are detecting the disk on each slot.
4. On the rear panel of the controller enclosure, the fault indicators of controllers A and B are off. The system assigns the enclosure IDs. In full configuration, the controller enclosure ID is 00, the first disk enclosure ID is 01, the second disk enclosure ID is 02, and the third disk enclosure ID is 03. These IDs are displayed on the LCD screens on the rear panel of two controllers.
5. The two controllers scan disks. During the process, the status indicators of all disks are blinking quickly from top to bottom in two lines. This process indicates that two controllers are detecting disks and the system is registering disks in turn.
6. Coffer disks are scanned. During the process, the running indicators of the disks in slots 0 to 3 of the controller enclosure are blinking randomly, which indicates that the controllers are writing the DB data into the coffer disks.
7. The start/alarm indicator on the front of the controller enclosure is off, which indicates that the system has properly started.
Root Cause
None
Suggestions
To check whether the S5100 properly starts, log in to the OSM 3.0, click Device, and observe the emulation panel of each module. If the running state of each module is normal, it indicates that the S5100 properly starts. You can also log in to the S5100 by using the SSH tool. Run the showpower command. If normal is displayed in each Status column, it indicates that the S5100 properly starts. You can run the showsys command to confirm the result. If the S5100 properly starts, the content displayed in the system information column is complete and accurate.
