Powering on the Storage Device

Powering on the Storage Device

Before powering on the storage system, complete the installation check to ensure that all devices are correctly installed and all cables are correctly connected. After powering on the storage system by following the correct power-on sequence, observe indicators on bays to check that the storage system is powered on successfully.

Power-On Sequence

Regarding the system power-on sequence, two basic rules must be followed:

  • If the system includes disk bays, they must be powered on before the system bays are powered on.
  • System bays must be powered on in an ascending sequence from system bay 0 to system bay n. Disk bays can be powered on in any sequence.

Devices must be grounded before the storage system is powered on. Otherwise, devices may be damaged.

The overall system power is controlled by power switches on power distribution units (PDUs). Each bay is equipped with PDUs that reside at the left and right sides in the rear of the bay. Your PDUs can be either European standard or North American standard. Choose the correct power-on sequence according to the type of PDUs configured.

Power-On Sequence for Systems Configured with European Standard PDUs

For a system configured with European standard PDUs, the correct power-on sequence is as follows:

  1. Turn on switches of all disk bays without the necessity to follow any sequence.
    • For European standard PDU switches (single-phase, 220 V, 32 A), turn on the switches in a sequence of B1 > B2.
    • For European standard PDU switches (three-phase, 380 V, 32 A), turn on the switches in a sequence of A1 > A2 > B1 > B2 > C1 > C2.
  2. Turn on PDU switches of the system bays from system bay 0 to system bay n in sequence.
    • For European standard PDU switches (single-phase, 220 V, 32 A), turn on the switches in a sequence of B1 > B2.
    • For European standard PDU switches (three-phase, 380 V, 32 A), turn on the switches in a sequence of A1 > A2 > B1 > B2 > C1 > C2.

      Figure 5-1 and Figure 5-2 shows the switches on a European standard PDU.

    Figure 5-1 Switches on a European standard PDU (single-phase 220 V, 32 A)

    Figure 5-2 Switches on a European standard PDU (three-phase 380 V, 32 A)

  3. Press the power button of SVP, as shown in Figure 5-3.
    Figure 5-3 Power button on SVP
  4. Press the power button of all engines, as shown in Figure 5-4.
    NOTE:

    In a scenario with multiple controllers, all the controllers must be powered on within three minutes. If the engines fail to power on within the specified period, the storage system fails to power on. In this case, contact Huawei technical support engineers.

    To power on the storage system, press the power button. If the power indicator of the controller enclosure is blinking green, the storage system is being powered on. Do not hold down the power button for more than five seconds; otherwise, the storage system will be powered off.

  5. (Optional) If the KVM is not powered on, switch on the power button on the rear panel of the KVM to power on it.
  6. After the KVM is powered on, enter your user name and password to log in to the KVM console. The default user name and password are empty. That is, you can log in to the system by pressing Enter twice. After the login, select the channel that connects to the SVP to go to the Windows system (the default channel is 1).

Power-On Sequence for Systems Configured with North American Standard PDUs

For a system configured with North American standard PDUs, the correct power-on sequence is as follows:

  1. Turn on switches of all disk bays without the necessity to follow any sequence.

    For North American standard PDU switches, turn on the switches in a sequence of B1 > B2 > B3.

  2. Turn on PDU switches of the system bays from system bay 0 to system bay n in sequence.

    For North American standard PDU switches, turn on the switches in a sequence of B1 > B2 > B3.

    Figure 5-5 shows the switches on a North American standard PDU.

  4. Press the power button of all engines, as shown in Figure 5-7.
    NOTE:

    In a scenario with multiple controllers, all the controllers must be powered on within three minutes. If the engines fail to power on within the specified period, the storage system fails to power on. In this case, contact Huawei technical support engineers.

    To power on the storage system, press the power button. If the power indicator of the controller enclosure is blinking green, the storage system is being powered on. Do not hold down the power button for more than five seconds; otherwise, the storage system will be powered off.

  5. (Optional) If the KVM is not powered on, switch on the power button on the rear panel of the KVM to power on it.
  6. After the KVM is powered on, enter your user name and password to log in to the KVM console. The default user name and password are empty. That is, you can log in to the system by pressing Enter twice. After the login, select the channel that connects to the SVP to go to the Windows system (the default channel is 1).

Power-On Sequence for Systems Configured with High Voltage DC PDUs

For a system configured with high voltage direct current (HVDC) PDUs, the correct power-on sequence is as follows:

  1. Turn on switches of all disk bays without the necessity to follow any sequence.

    For HVDC PDU switches, turn on the switches in a sequence of B1 > B2.

  2. Turn on switches of all system bays.

    For HVDC PDU switches, turn on the switches in a sequence of B1 > B2.

    Figure 5-8 shows the switches on an HVDC PDU.

Sequence for Powering on DC PDBs (Four Controllers)

Power supplied to the entire storage system can be controlled using switches on the DC PDBs. Each bay has two DC PDBs. One is located between 36 U and 37 U, and the other one is located between 39 U and 40 U.

NOTE:

OceanStor 18000 series storage systems support DC power modules.

  1. Turn on the switches of each DC PDB in all disk bays. There is no sequence requirement.

    Figure 5-11 shows the switches of a DC PDB.
