Powering On Devices

Powering On Devices

After all devices are installed, power on them and check that they are working correctly.

Prerequisites

Ensure that all devices are properly installed and device installation check is completed. Otherwise, power them on after these devices and hardware are correctly installed.

Context

  • Before powering on a 2 U controller enclosure, ensure that its slots 0 to 3 (where coffer disks reside) are fully populated with disks.
  • Before powering on a 3 U controller enclosure, ensure that it has connected to a configuration disk enclosure on which slots 0 to 3 (where coffer disks reside) are fully populated with disks.
  • Before powering on a 6 U controller enclosure, ensure that the A/B and C/D controllers of each controller enclosure have separately connected to configuration disk enclosures on which slots 0 to 3 (where coffer disks reside) are fully populated with disks.
  • Ensure that the configuration disk enclosure is a new device that never connects to any controller enclosure.
  • Before powering on a storage system, ensure that all expansion cables have been properly connected. If expansion cable connections are adjusted after a storage system is powered on, the storage system may malfunction.
  • During the power-on, do not remove or insert optical fibers, network cables, coffer disks, or interface modules to avoid system data loss.

If the power of a backup battery unit (BBU) is insufficient, the BBU automatically charges when the storage system is powered on for the first time, and the Running/Alarm indicator on the BBU is blinking green. When a BBU is fully charged, its Running indicator is steady green.

Typically, an AC power distribution box (PDB) is configured on the top of a cabinet. If an AC PDB is not configured, skip the information related to PDBs.

Figure 8-1 shows an AC PDB.

Figure 8-1 AC PDB

NOTE:

Correct power-on sequence: Turn on the external power switches corresponding to all the devices. > Press the Power button on any controller. > Power on switches (if any switch is deployed but not powered on). > Power on application servers.

Procedure

  1. (Optional) If an AC PDB is configured, check the labels on power cables and match the power cables with power switches in the PDB.

    For example, if the label on the AC power cable connected to a controller enclosure says PowerBox Output B_8, it indicates that the power cable of the controller enclosure corresponds to power switch SW8 on module Output B. You can turn on that power switch to power on the controller enclosure.

  2. (Optional) If an AC PDB is configured, turn on the power switches corresponding to all the devices in sequence.
  3. Press the power button of the controller enclosure.

    NOTE:
    • 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.
    • The power-on of the storage system takes 15 to 30 minutes.
    • After the controller enclosure is powered on, other disk enclosures connected will be automatically powered on.
    • After system power-on, the disk initialization process automatically starts. The time required for the process is dependent on the quantity of the disks to be initialized.

Follow-up Procedure

NOTE:

The following figures and indicator descriptions are only used to help you determine whether a storage system is successfully powered on. For details about indicators, see the Hardware Description of the storage system.

Figure 8-2, Figure 8-3, Figure 8-4, Figure 8-5, and Figure 8-6 show the indicator status displayed when a storage system is successfully powered on.

NOTE:
  • The 2U 25-disk controller enclosure is used here as examples to show the indicators.
  • The 2 U disk enclosure and the 4 U high-density disk enclosure are used here as examples to show the indicators.

Check whether the following requirements are met. If yes, the storage system is successfully powered on and is running properly.

NOTE:

If data switches are configured, check the status of the indicators on the data switches too.

  • The Power indicators on controllers, controller enclosures, and disk enclosures are steady green.
  • The Alarm indicators on controllers, controller enclosures, and disk enclosures are off.
  • The Running indicators on coffer disks are steady green, and the Alarm/Location indicators are off.
    • Disks with coffer disk labels are coffer disks.
    • Before services are configured, the Running indicators on the first three coffer disks are blinking green, and the Alarm/Location indicators are off.

If any Alarm indicator is on, the device is faulty and you need to rectify the fault. For details about how to rectify faults, see the Troubleshooting Guide of the storage system. If a power indicator is not steady green, contact Huawei technical support engineers.
