110 Chapter 5 Operations after OS Installation 5.3 Storing the System Setting Information Before starting operations, store the configuration information of the BIOS Setup Utility. By storing this information, the system can be recovered with the stored information in case of a system failure (such as when the information is deleted due to the drain of the built-in battery). Use Server Management Tools for storing and recovering the system configuration information. The Management Blade has the similar function, which collectively manages the backup of multiple Server Blade setting information items. For details, refer to "BX600 Management Blade Hardware Guide". Since the system configuration information is significant in maintaining the server, be sure to store the BIOS information after the following operations. In addition, save the stored data. When the information is changed with the BIOS Setup Utility When the hardware configuration of this server is changed (e.g. a CPU, memory, internal hard disk unit or expansion card is added, removed or changed) As the stored system configuration information will be used during maintenance, etc., send it to your maintenance personnel. Preparation for using Server Management Tools Use the Display/USB Extension Cable to connect to the USB floppy disk drive to the Server Blade. For the procedure to create "Server Management Tools" disk, refer to "5.4.2 Creating "Server Management Tools" Disk" ( pg.116) Cautions Server Management Tools are for this Server Blade only. Do not use those tools on other systems. If they are used, the system can be damaged. Only the information that is configured with the BIOS Setup Utility can be stored/recovered with Server Management Tools. The BIOS information in internal RAID devices cannot be stored/ recovered. Make sure to start up the Server Blade with the "Server Management Tools" disk before running Server Management Tools. Do not run Server Management Tools on the server started from the hard disk or by the other floppy disks. Otherwise, the system may be corrupted. Do not eject a floppy disk while the floppy disk access LED is on. Such an action may lead not only to corruption of the floppy disk data but also an unstable state of the system.

153 PRIMERGY BX620 S4 Server Blade User s Guide Teaming Teaming types Teaming has the following types. Adapter Fault Tolerance (AFT) Adapter Fault Tolerance (AFT) is a technology to make the link between the server and switches redundant by using multiple LAN ports. When a failure occurs in the link being used (Primary Link), the communication continues by switching the process to the standby link (Secondary Link) without interrupting. For AFT, all ports in the team must be connected to the same switch. Adaptive Load Balancing (ALB) Adaptive Load Balancing (ALB) is a technology that distributes the sending and receiving data to multiple LAN ports to improve the performance in addition to redundancy function of AFT (When "Receive Load Balancing (RLB)" in Advanced setting is set to "Disabled", the reception is done only in the Primary Link). For ALB, all ports in the team must be connected to the same switch as well as AFT. Switch Fault Tolerance (SFT) Switch Fault Tolerance (SFT) is a redundancy function equal in configuration to AFT when LAN ports are connected to a separate switch. SFT switches the link to be used between LAN ports and switches that are connected to the LAN ports when a failure occurs. However, a failure in links outside of the switches (,, and in the figure below) cannot be detected. Switch Switch PRIMERGY Static link aggregation Select this mode when connecting a team to a Cisco FEC/GEC compliant switch or a switch that supports IEEE802.3ad-Draft Static. Switch settings are also necessary. All ports in the team must be connected to the same switch. IEEE802.3ad dynamic link aggregation (only for Windows Server 2008) Select this mode when connecting a team to a switch which supports IEEE802.3ad compliant Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP). In this mode, all adapters must run at the same speed, and all ports in the team must be connected to the same switch. Also, this mode is only available for Teaming on the LAN card. 153

154 Chapter 5 Operations after OS Installation Notes When using the Teaming function, note the following points. For AFT/ALB/Static link/dynamic link type, up to four LAN ports can be incorporated into one team and two ports for a SFT type team. Once a Team is created, virtual adapters (Team:(Team Name)) will be created in the [Device Manager] and [Network and Dial-up Connections] of the system. Do not disable or delete this virtual adapter from the [Device Manager] or [Network and Dial-up Connections]. When deleting a virtual adapter, make sure to use "Intel PROSet". When the Teaming function is being used, only the following protocols can be used: For AFT/SFT/Static link/dynamic link type: IP, NetBEUI, IPX (NCP), IPX (NetBIOS) For ALB type: IP, IPX (NCP) When the Teaming function is being used, Windows Load Balancing Service (WLBS) and Network Load Balancing (NLB) cannot be used. If Static link type is selected, only the switch for link aggregation can be used. When adding/deleting a Static link type member, perform such operation in a linked down state. Only a link down error between a LAN card (onboard LAN) and the switch it connects with, and the equivalent errors lead to switching of the route. Therefore, if only the switch or LAN card (onboard LAN) is partially damaged and the route being used is normal at the link level, the route will not be switched in the team, but the communication using team may become an error. For Windows Server 2008 Creating a team 1 Click [Start] [Administrative Tools] [Computer Management] to start Intel PROSet. 2 Click [Network adapters] under [Device Manager] and double-click a LAN adapter to be incorporated in a team. 3 Click the [Teaming] tab, select [Team with other adapters] and click [New Team]. 4 Enter a team name and click [Next]. 5 Check the only LAN adapter to be incorporated in the Team and click [Next]. 6 Select a Teaming type with which a Team will be created, and click [Next].

163 Chapter 6 High Reliability Tools For stable PRIMERGY server operations, we recommend that high reliability tools be installed. This chapter explains the installation and necessary settings of high reliability tools. 6.1 RAID Management Tool Server Monitoring Tool [ServerView] Maintenance Support Tool [HRM/server] Solving Problems Early [DSNAP]

164 Chapter 6 High Reliability Tools 6.1 RAID Management Tool RAID Management Tool is software that performs array configuration, disk initialization and disk array monitoring. Refer to the manual in the Array Controller Document & Tool CD for installation procedures and use. For the manual of the SAS RAID Ctrl to be used, refer to "2.3.2 Notes on Configuring RAID" ( pg.42). OS installation using ServerStart If the OS is installed using ServerStart, RAID Management Tool is installed with the OS and other high reliability tools Before starting operation After installing the OS in the server, perform the following settings. For details, refer to the manual in the Array Controller Document & Tool CD. Setting for an array administrator account Set an array administrator account for the RAID management tool (ServerView RAID). A Windows user account is required when using ServerView RAID. Create the group "raid-adm", and create an account with any name for an administrator of the array in this group. Setting for the HDD check scheduler When using the SAS RAID Ctrl (MegaRAID SAS), change the setting for the HDD check scheduler according to the operation as required. It is set to 12:00 for everyday as default. 164

165 PRIMERGY BX620 S4 Server Blade User s Guide 6.2 Server Monitoring Tool [ServerView] ServerView constantly monitors the status of the servers' hardware in the network and provides a console with which the administrator can check the status of all the servers at a glance. When using ServerView, the server hardware is monitored all the time. If an error that could cause trouble is detected, the administrator is notified in real-time. This allows the server administrator to remove a system error early and avoid trouble. For notes on ServerView security, refer to "Security" in "1.1.7 Note" in the "ServerView User's Guide". Importance of monitoring the server with ServerView For safe operation of the server, always monitor the server using ServerView. Even if the server is operated in the redundancy configuration, overlooking or neglecting errors could result in a system stop or data loss. As soon as one constituent part of the redundancy configuration fails, the corresponding countermeasures must be taken. For that reason, monitoring the server with ServerView is necessary. If ServerView is not applied, the following very serious problems may occur. RAID error monitoring ServerView notifies of the RAID errors. In an environment where ServerView is not applied, the administrator is not notified of the RAID errors. Leaving the RAID error unattended may lead to a system stop with multiple dead drives. Memory monitoring ServerView monitors the memory. In an environment where ServerView is not applied, a memory single-bit error cannot be detected during operation. In order to detect the error, the server must reboot to run the BIOS Setup Utility or the Server Management Tools. Leaving this error unattended may lead to multiple-bit errors and a system stop. Fan monitoring ServerView monitors the fan. In an environment where ServerView is not applied, fan irregularities (failure/stop) cannot be detected during operation. In order to detect the problem, the server must reboot to run the BIOS Setup Utility or the Server Management Tools. Leaving the fan problem unattended may lead to overheating inside the server and a system stop. 165

166 Chapter 6 High Reliability Tools Temperature monitoring ServerView monitors the temperature. In an environment where ServerView is not applied, the increased temperature inside the server, due to the fan problem described above, cannot be detected and the system stop cannot be prevented. In order to detect the problem, the server must reboot to run the BIOS Setup Utility or the Server Management Tools. Voltage monitoring ServerView monitors the voltage. In an environment where ServerView is not applied, voltage irregularities cannot be detected during operation. In order to detect the problem, the server must reboot to run the BIOS Setup Utility or the Server Management Tools. As leaving the voltage surges, the server may malfunction or data loss may occur. Power supply monitoring ServerView monitors the power supply. In an environment where ServerView is not applied, power supply irregularities cannot be detected during operation. In order to detect the problem, the server must reboot to run the BIOS Setup Utility or the Server Management Tools. System stops due to power supply failures cannot be prevented Installing ServerView When installed using ServerStart If the OS is installed using ServerStart, ServerView will be installed at once with the OS and other high reliability tools. When installed manually (Linux) ServerView cannot be installed using ServerStart. To install ServerView manually into a Linux system, refer to "Installation" in "ServerView User s Guide". Be sure to install SNMP service before installing ServerView. When an error screen appears after ServerView installation (Windows Server 2003 only) If Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 is applied, the following message may appear on restarting after installing/uninstalling ServerView. In order to protect the computer, this program is terminated by Windows. Name: SNMP Service There is no problem with operations. Click [Close Message] to close the message. 166

242 Chapter 9 Operation and Maintenance Time display in Linux OS environment Difference in time between the OS and the hardware clock Since the software clock on OS is employed but not the hardware clock functioned in the server for time display in Linux environment, time -lag may occur between the OS and the hardware clock. When time precision is required on OS, it is recommended to use the NTP service to periodically correct the time displayed on the OS. Changing the time settings for the OS and hardware clock In a Linux environment, the time displayed on the OS (the software clock value on the OS) is written to the hardware clock in the server when the OS is shut down. Procedure for prohibiting the time on the OS from being written to the hardware clock When you do not want the time on the OS to be written to the hardware clock at an OS shutdown, comment the following line out in /etc/rc0.d/s01halt. runcmd $"Syncing hardware clock to system time" /sbin/hwclock $CLOCKFLAGS #runcmd $"Syncing hardware clock to system time" /sbin/hwclock $CLOCKFLAGS Procedure for reflecting the hardware clock value to the time on the OS To reflect the hardware clock value to the software clock value on the OS, run the following command. >hwclock --hctosys 242

248 Chapter 9 Operation and Maintenance 9.4 Security Security features are provided in order to protect the Server Blade hardware and software resources from theft. Additional security functions against unauthorized use provided by the BIOS Setup Utility, etc. are also available to help maintain a highly reliable data security system Hardware Security For details on the hardware security, refer to "2.1 Hardware Security" in the "BX600 Management Blade Hardware Guide" Security against Unauthorized Use A password can be set to prevent unauthorized use of the Server Blade. When a password is set, the server is accessible to only the users who know the password. The password is set in the BIOS Setup Utility. For details on the BIOS Setup Utility, refer to "8.2 BIOS Setup Utility" ( pg.205). Password types The following two types of password can be set in this Server Blade. The type of password defines the privileges of server operations. Supervisor password (Administrator password) This is the password that allows specific persons to access the BIOS setup. Unless the set password is entered, the BIOS setup cannot be accessed and the OS cannot be booted. User password (User password) This is the password that allows specific persons to use the Server Blade. Unless the set password is entered, part of the BIOS setup cannot be accessed and the OS cannot be booted. 248

249 PRIMERGY BX620 S4 Server Blade User s Guide Setting a password 1 Start the BIOS Setup Utility. "8.2.1 Starting and Exiting the BIOS Setup Utility" (pg.205) 2 Use the [ ] [ ] keys to select [Security] from the [Main] menu and press the [Enter] key.

When deleting a password, execute step 3 without entering any characters. 3 Press the [Enter] key. When the password is deleted, [Not installed] is displayed in [System Password] or [Setup Password] of the [Security] menu. 249

250 Chapter 9 Operation and Maintenance The system shuts down after three invalid password entries. If this happens, turn off the Server Blade, turn it back on, and then enter the correct password. If you forgot your password and cannot start the Server Blade, clear the CMOS with the switch block on the Server Blade to delete the password. After the CMOS has been cleared, restore the BIOS settings ( "8.1 Switch Block Settings" (pg.204)). After this, return switch block settings to the original settings and use this utility to set a password Security When Disposing of the Server Notes regarding the deletion of data from the hard disk when disposing of or transferring the server When disposing of or transferring a server that has been used, the data in the hard disk may be read and used for unforeseen purposes. To prevent confidential or important data from leaking out, the data on the hard disk must be wiped before disposal or transfer. However, wiping the hard disk is not an easy task. Simply initializing (formatting) the hard disk or deleting the files may give the pretense that the data no longer exists, but in reality the data is simply no longer accessible to the OS. However, it is still accessible to malicious individuals that can restore the data. Therefore, if confidential or important data is saved to the hard disk, in addition to the operations mentioned above, it is recommended to use third-party tools or services to wipe the data completely from the disk to prevent its restoration. When disposing of or transferring the server, it is the customer's responsibility to wipe data contained in the hard disk in order to prevent such important data from leaking. Also, if software license agreements prohibit unauthorized distribution of software (OS or application software), transferring the server without removing the software may violate the license agreements. These issues must be taken into consideration. 250

251 PRIMERGY BX620 S4 Server Blade User s Guide 9.5 Backup This Server Blade utilizes high reliability components and hard disks, however, as a precautionary measure, it is recommended that periodic backups be made of the data Importance of Backups If the data on the server is backed up, it can be restored from the backup data in the event of data corruption in hard disk units due to hardware failures or operational errors. If backup are not created, restoration is impossible and your important data will be lost permanently. For anxiety-free system operation, be sure to perform periodic backups of the system Backup Devices, Software and Their Operations Backup operations differ depending on network operating systems, applications, and system operations. Contact an office listed in the "Contact Information" in the "Start Guide" and make backups using the following items. Backup device (e.g., DAT72 unit) Backup software (Standard backup software supplied with the OS, software for tape backup, etc.) The Windows Server Backup function that is standardly provided with Windows Server 2008 can be used. However, backup to a tape library cannot be performed using the Windows Server Backup function. Backup operations (schedules) Use our genuine backup devices and software. Observe the backup medium (tape) storage conditions. Mirroring/disk array systems To improve system reliability, a mirroring or disk array system is recommended in addition to periodic backup creation. 251

252 Chapter 9 Operation and Maintenance Notes on operating backups Notes on using backups are as follows. For details, refer to the device manuals. Head cleaning Airborne dust and dust from the magnetic media can collect on the head of the magnetic tape device. To remove this dust, head cleaning must be implemented. Implement head cleaning when the device displays a cleaning request. Particularly DDS devices require periodic head cleaning, otherwise dust can cling to the magnetic head, creating a situation that cannot be cleaned using standard head cleaning methods, and eventually render the device useless. Also note that there is a limit to how many times the cleaning media can be used. Using cleaning media that has exceeded its life span will have no cleaning effect. Note these points especially when performing automatic backups with library devices. Managing media life span Media is a consumable product that must be replaced regularly. Continued use of media exceeding its life span can have negative effects on the device (e.g. increase the speed of dust accumulation). The life span of media varies depending on the environment and operating conditions of the device, the type of backup software used, and other operating conditions, however, it is recommended that they be replaced sooner than later. As a guide to when the life span of the media will expire, write the date it was first used on the media. Rotating media Perform backup operations using multiple mediums on a rotating basis. When using a single media cartridge repeatedly, backup data can be temporarily lost in the event the backup fails. Also if the hard disk fails during backup, the backup data cannot be recovered. Avoid leaving media in devices Because the magnetic recording surface of the device is exposed, media can be easily affected by airborne dust when left inserted for a long period of time. Insert the media before using it, and remove the media after use, and then restore it to its case. Also note that some tape devices write management information to the tape when ejecting the media. If the power were to go out when the media is still in the device, this writing process will not be performed and the media may become corrupted. To avoid this, remove the media from the device when turning off the server/device. Verifying data after backup Some backup software products provide data verification functions after backup is completed. Such functions will read and verify the data written to the media after backup is completed. This will increase the usage of the media, thus reducing the number of times it can be used for backups. Depending on the hardware being used, some devices perform "read after write" operations on data; note the points of this section as necessary. 252

253 PRIMERGY BX620 S4 Server Blade User s Guide Ejecting media after backup Some backup software products provide functions for ejecting media after backup is completed. Such functions will rewind the tape after backup is completed and then eject the media from the drive. Be sure to execute this function for autoloader/library devices. Depending on the structure of some servers, this function may cause the media to be ejected from an internal device of the server and hit the Chassis cover. If this is the case, open the cover when ejecting, or do not eject the media. Media label types and positions When writing information such as the name on media, use the label that came with the media. The area in which a label can be posted on the media of each device varies. Failing to post labels in the designated area can damage the device. Data storage When storing data for long periods of time, store the media in a location not affected by humidity and magnetic fields. 253

254 Chapter 9 Operation and Maintenance 9.6 Restoring the system If the system is damaged, use the backup data created after the installation to restore the system. Backup data for system recovery must be created in advance. For the procedure for creating it, refer to "5.2 Creating Backup Data for System Recovery" ( pg.107). When using the backup device, refer to the manual provided with the backup device or Readme.txt included in the device driver For Windows Server 2008 The whole server can be restored using the Windows Server Backup function. Items required Windows Server 2008 DVD-ROM (Installation disc) Backup data created using the Windows Server Backup function (connectable shared folder, DVD, etc.) 1 Insert the Windows Server 2008 DVD-ROM (Installation disc) immediately after turning on the server. Check that there is not already a floppy disk inserted in the floppy disk drive at this time. 2 When active area is specified on the hard disk, the following message is displayed on the bottom of the window. Press any key while the message is displayed. Press any key to boot... The Windows Server 2008 setup window appears. 254

255 PRIMERGY BX620 S4 Server Blade User s Guide 3 Click [Repair your computer] displayed in the bottom left of the window. 4 Click [Windows Complete PC Restore]. When using a shared folder to restore the system, the message [Valid location for backup cannot be found.] is displayed. Click [Cancel]. 5 Specify the backup type, and click [Next]. When backup data is in a folder on another machine, or when the backup data is not the latest data, select [Restore specific backup]. In this case, the window to specify a restoration target appears after clicking [Next]. Select the backup to be restored and click [Next]. When the backup data is stored on the network, specify the shared folder in which the backup data is stored from [Advanced Settings]. The window to set the restoration options appears. 6 Perform the settings as required, and click [Next]. The restoration settings completion window appears. 255
