Checking Indicators

Checking Indicators

Indicators reflect the hardware working status in real time. By observing these indicators, you can quickly assess whether the hardware is working properly.

Check Method

By observing the indicators, maintenance personnel can understand the system health status and locate faulty modules.

Check the front-panel and rear-panel indicators on the controller enclosure on site according to the check criteria to determine whether all components in the controller enclosure are working properly.

If a module of the storage system is abnormal, refer to the Product Description of the corresponding product model to learn about detailed indicator meanings. Then, troubleshoot faults based on the detailed fault information you have obtained.

Checking Controller Enclosure Indicators

Controller enclosure indicators show the running status of the controller enclosure. By checking these indicators, you can quickly learn about the status of each component module.

The following is an example:

The first 40GE interface shown in Figure 4-22 is split into four 10GE interfaces, and the second 40GE interface is not split.

  • When Breakout indicator 1 is on, the indicator of 40GE interface 1 shows the status of the first 10GE interface derived from 40GE interface 1, and the indicator of 40GE interface 2 shows the status of the second 40GE interface.
  • When Breakout indicator 2 is on, the indicator of 40GE interface 1 shows the status of the second 10GE interface derived from 40GE interface 1, and the indicator of 40GE interface 2 shows the status of the second 40GE interface.

None

The NMI button triggers an SVP to generate a non-maskable interrupt. You can press this button or control it remotely through the WebUI.

NOTE:
  • Click the NMI button only when the OS is abnormal. Do not click this button when the SVP is operating properly.
  • Click the NMI button only for internal commissioning. Before clicking this button, ensure that the OS has the handler for NMI interrupt. Otherwise, the OS may crash. Exercise caution when clicking this button.

Disk Active indicator

Green

  • Off: The disk is not detected or is faulty.
  • Blinking green: Data is being read from, written to the disk, or synchronized between disks.
  • Steady green: The disk is inactive.

2

Disk Fault indicator

Yellow

  • Off: The disk is working properly.
  • Blinking yellow: The disk is being located, or the RAID is being reconstructed.
  • Steady yellow: The disk is faulty or member disks in the RAID group are abnormal.

6

Network port Link status indicators

Green

Each indicator shows the status of an Ethernet port on the network interface card (NIC).

  • Steady green: The port is properly connected.
  • Off: The port is not in use.
NOTE:

If the NIC provides only two network ports, network port indicators 1 and 2 on the front panel are used.

NOTE:
  • On an SVP, system management network port P1 and system management network port P2 (namely ports numbered 13 and 12 in Figure 4-26) are bound by default. The two ports do not support execution of the ping command to test connectivity. The two ports must always have the same IP address (for example, 192.168.0.136). It is advisable to connect system management network port P1 and system management network port P2 to the management network, for providing link redundancy and improving network reliability. Two links work in active-backup mode (mode 1). When the active link is faulty, the system automatically switches services to the backup link.
  • A serial port connects to the SMS modem only.

  • Off: The system in the bay is not powered on.

(Optional) Checking Quorum Server Indicators (RH1288 V3)

For HyperMetro, if the heartbeats between two storage arrays are interrupted, the quorum server decides which storage array continues providing services, thereby greatly improving host service continuity.
