  • Description

    Product Description

    The IBM 574F 1.5Gb Cache Card is paired to the 5738 571E Disk Controller Adapter card in order to achieve increased performance when controlling 15k disks such as the #4326, 4327, 4328, 4329 drives.  It is attached using the 42R4053 cable.  It also has onboard a 42R8305 Cache Battery (we have new replacement cache batteries in stock in case you need only the replacement battery if the one on your card has failed).

    Custom Card Identification Number (CCIN) 574F is an auxiliary-write cache IOA that provides 1.5 GB of (compressed) auxiliary-write cache when paired with a RAID disk controllers.

    • The 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA can be used with the 5738, 5777, 2780, 2757, disk controllers.
    • The 574F can be used as a replacement IOA for the 5708 auxiliary-write cache IOA.
    • The 0641 includes a direct attach 2780 Peripheral Component Interconnect-X (PCI-X) Ultra4 RAID Disk Controller and a CCIN 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA.
    • The 0649 includes a direct attach 5738 PCI-X Quad-Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and a CCIN 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA
    • The 5582 includes an IOP-based 5738 PCI-X Quad-Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and a CCIN 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA.
    • The 5583 includes an IOPless, 5777 PCI-X Quad-Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and a CCIN 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA
    • The 5590 includes a 2780 PCI-X Ultra4 RAID Disk Controller and a CCIN 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA.

    The auxiliary-write cache IOA mirrors the write cache of the disk-controller IOA to which it is connected. If a failure occurs to the write cache of the disk-controller, the auxiliary-write cache IOA provides a backup copy during the recovery of the failed IOA.

    The disk controller IOA and the secondary, auxiliary-write cache IOA each require one PCI-X slot and must be installed together in the same enclosure. The disk controller IOA and the auxiliary-write cache IOA are connected by a SCSI cable (provided). The connecting SCSI cable is attached to SCSI bus port 3 of the disk controller IOA, reducing the number of SCSI buses that support disk drives from four to three. The reduction of SCSI buses can also reduce the number of disk drives supported by the disk controller, depending on the enclosure in which the disk controller is installed. No disk drives are driven by the auxiliary-write cache IOA.

    Operating system or partition requirements

    IBM® i

    • When 574F is used with the 2780 or 2757 controller, the feature is supported in V5R2 or later.
    • When 574F is used with the 5738 or 5777 controller, the feature is supported in V5R3 or later.
    Important: There will be a prerequisite for each release. Check the IBM Prerequisite Web site at http://www-912.ibm.com/e_dir/eServerPrereq.nsfLink outside information center.

    AIX®

    • AIX 5L™ Version 5.2 with the 5200-10 Technology Level
    • AIX 5L Version 5.3 with the 5300-06 Technology Level
    Maximum number For system-specific adapter placement information, see the PCI adapter placement for machine type 94xx
    Partition information
    • If you are placing the feature in the primary partition or any non-partitioned system, the auxiliary cache IOA for the load source (LS) adapter must be in the same enclosure as the LS IOA.
    • If you are placing the feature in the secondary partition on any system, the auxiliary cache IOA for the LS adapter must be under the LS IOP.
    Related information
    • The disk controller adapter and the auxiliary-write cache adapter each require one PCI slot.
    • Both adapters must be installed in the same enclosure.
    • The adapters are connected by a SCSI cable that is provided.
    • The operating system identifies the auxiliary-write cache IOA as a storage controller with no devices attached. The operating system does not identify which controller the auxiliary-write cache IOA is connected to.
    • The adapter pairs must both be IOPless, or IOP controlled.
      • The 5582 includes an IOP-based 5738 PCI-X Quad-Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and a CCIN 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA.
      • The 5583 includes an IOPless, 5777 PCI-X Quad-Channel Ultra320 SCSI RAID Adapter and a CCIN 574F auxiliary-write cache IOA

    Installing the adapters

    To install the adapters, refer to the PCI Adapters topic, and then return here for instruction on installing the SCSI cable:

    Installing the SCSI cable

    The disk controller adapter and the auxiliary-write cache adapter are connected by a SCSI cable.

    Attention: Do not install or remove the adapter cable if the adapters have the power on. Use the service procedures to turn off the power to the adapter slots or shut down the system or partition in which the adapters are placed.
