    The PCI-X double-wide, quad-channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Controller is a high-performance SCSI adapter combined with an auxiliary-write cache adapter to form a double-wide, adapter pair. The two adapters are screwed together. This topic contains the following sections:

    Features

    • 3 external U320 SCSI ports
    • 1 internal U320 SCSI port dedicated to connecting the controller to the auxiliary-write cache adapter
    • Up to 36 direct access storage devices (DASD) can be externally attached per adapter
    • 320 MB data rate per SCSI bus
    • Supports low voltage differential (LVD) disk devices only
    • Supports RAID 5 and 6 (3–18 drive sets)
    • 390 MB/1.5 GB compressed write cache
    • 415 MB/1.6 GB compressed read cache
    • PCI-X DDR support (storage adapter side)
    • IOP or IOPless (5739 requires an IOP. 5778 does not.)

    Specifications

    Item Description
    Adapter FRU number 42R6578
    Cache battery FRU number 42R3965
    Unit description
    • 64 bit, 133 MHz, 3.3 V
    • PCI-X 2.0 compliant
    • Double-wide adapter, requires 2, adjacent, long slots. The SCSI controller side of the adapter pair requires a 64-bit slot. (The controller side is the side with the external SCSI connectors.)
    • The auxiliary-write cache adapter contains a dual, concurrently maintainable, cache-battery pack, which maintains cache memory on both adapters in the event of an abnormal termination.
    Operating system or partition requirements
    • IBM® i V5R3, V5R3M5, and V5R4 with PTFs.
    • AIX 5L™ Version 5.2 with the 5200-10 Technology Level, or later
    • AIX 5L Version 5.3 with the 5300-06 Technology Level, or later
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4 U4, or later
    • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, or later

    Maximum number See Placement information.

    Logical partitioning

    When used in a logical partition (LPAR) environment, this double-wide adapter must have both slots of the adapter assigned to the same logical partition. When implementing dynamic logical partitioning (DLPAR), both slots of the adapter must be managed together.

    Placing the adapter in a double-wide cassette

    To place this double-wide adapter in a double-wide cassette, first remove the adapter handle (B), and the two plastic covers from the SCSI jumper cable (A), as shown in the following figure. (The two plastic covers are only found on adapters made before August 2008.) Then follow the general procedures to place a double-wide adapter in a double-wide cassette. See Placing an adapter in the PCI adapter double-wide cassette.

    Figure 2. Preparing the adapter for placement in a cassette

    Installing a cassette that contains an adapter in a system

    To install a cassette that contains an adapter into a system unit or expansion unit, follow the procedures in 5796 and 7314-G30 expansion units, Removing and replacing a PCI adapter contained in a cassette. For instructions, see PCI adapters.

    Placing the double-wide adapter in a system that does not use cassettes

    If you are installing the double-wide adapter in the internal PCI slots, remove the lower, right standoff shown in Figure 3.

    Power LED

    For a double-wide adapter, there is only one power LED visible for both slots.

    Concurrent maintenance procedure

    Concurrent maintenance of this double-wide adapter is only supported if you are using the IBM i operating system. It is not supported through the Hardware Management Console (HMC). Concurrent maintenance must be done from the Hardware Service Manager (HSM) of the system or owning partition. The HSM automatically powers off and on both PCI slots when either slot is selected. If you are using the AIX® or Linux operating system you must manually power off and on each slot separately.

    Important:

    • Both PCI slots must be powered off when installing or removing this adapter with the system power on.
    • If the adapter is the load source IOA, or under the load source IOP, or any other storage IOA/IOP with critical DASD attached for the system, have a qualified service provider perform the concurrent maintenance procedure. At step 12, the HSM directs you to use control panel functions 68 and 69 to power off the domain.
    The following steps are a general concurrent maintenance procedure for installing, removing, or replacing an adapter in a system that is running the IBM i operating system. If you were sent here by another procedure, additional specific instructions for removing and replacing a PCI adapter can be found in that procedure.

    1. Start an IBM i session for the system or partition that contains the adapter and sign on to the system or partition.
    2. Type strsst on the command line of the Main menu and then press Enter.
    3. Type your service tools user ID and service tools password on the System Service Tools (SST) Sign On display and press Enter.
    4. Select Start a service tool from the System Service Tools (SST) display and press Enter.
    5. Select Hardware service manager from the Start a Service Tools display and press Enter.
    6. Select Logical hardware resources (system, frames, cards) from the Hardware Service Manager display and press Enter.
    7. Select System bus resources and press Enter. The display changes to the Logical Hardware Resources on System Bus display.
    8. Page down and locate the IOP that controls the IOA to be serviced.

      If you are installing a new IOPless adapter in an empty slot, the IOP is not shown.

    9. Enter 9 in the Opt field for the IOP to be serviced.
    10. Locate the Storage IOA resource for the adapter to be serviced and enter 8 in the Opt field for that resource.
    11. Enter 3 for Concurrent maintenance in the Opt field for the Storage IOA resource to be serviced. The display changes to the Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance display.
    12. Press F9 to power off the domain.

      In some cases, the card slots are already powered off if empty.

    13. Press Enter to start power off. The display changes to the Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance Status display, which shows the status of the power off.

      When the power off is complete, the display returns to the Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance display. The display shows that the Power Status is off for Storage IOA. Leave this display on the HSM while you install, remove, or replace the adapter.

    14. Check the slot power LED state for the slot in which the adapter resides to verify that the adapter is powered off.

      For a double-wide adapter, there is only one power LED visible for both slots.

    15. Install, remove, or replace the adapter. Follow the procedures in 5796 and 7314-G30 expansion units, Removing and replacing a PCI adapter contained in a cassette. For instructions, see PCI adapters.
    16. After the replacement is complete, return to the Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance display on the HSM.
    17. If you were previously instructed to use operator panel function 69 to power on the adapter, do so now. Then go to step Installing PCI adapters, otherwise continue with next step.
    18. Enter F10 to power the adapter on.
    19. Press Enter to begin power on.
    20. If the Work with Controlling Resource display is displayed, enter 7 in the Opt field for the IOP to assign the IOA to.

      The Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance Status display shows the status of the power on.

    21. When the power on is complete, the display returns to the Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance display. The display shows that the Power Status is on for the Storage IOA.
    22. Check the LED status to verify that the adapter is powered on.

      For a double-wide adapter, there is only one power LED visible for both slots.

    23. Return to the procedure that sent you here.
