The boot container is labelled as 00 in control,er List of Containers dialog box. Note You must perform this procedure on each of the server’s subsystems in the Array Manager tree view in order to implement smart thermal shutdown. This section has two topics:. You can use CCU to create a bootable container for the server.

This section describes procedures commonly used in association with enclosures. This section describes Array Manager’s commands for working with array disks.


To set the temperature thresholds, see Set Thresholds for Temperature. The temperature reported by the temperature probe is displayed in celsius in the Current Value field in the right pane. To make the new hard drive visible in the tree view:. The logical disks can have RAID layouts, which let you to manage your storage more efficiently.

This section describes the commands associated with the enclosure and its fans, power supplies, and temperature probes. You raud view the current status of an enclosure and its components. You can view these components in the Array Manager tree view.

Note that the number of drives used for each RAID level cannot exceed 32 drives. Note This operation is not supported in NetWare. If the controller does not have array disks attached to it, then the Show Array Disks and Hide Array Disks options are not displayed. Once paused, you peec later resume the consistency check by using the Resume Consistency Check option.

After you have replaced this disk and contoller a rescan, it is displayed once again in the tree view.

The commands on the enclosure’s context menu can vary depending on the model of the enclosure. The log gives detailed information on the controller activities and can be useful for troubleshooting.


The error threshold has a default value that cannot be changed. Use this command to rename a virtual disk. The controller always del, the lowest numbered container as its bootable container.

Since the partition table is overwritten, if the drive is used in a container, you may not be able to use the container again. If you have not yet attached the enclosure percc an open channel, you may need to identify a channel on the controller that can be used for this purpose.

Caution Resetting a configuration permanently destroys all data on these virtual disks. You can select the Temperature Probes object to display the individual temperature probes and their status information in the right pane. Use the Unmirror command to convert the mirror set to a concatenated set or convert a multi-level virtual disk of mirror sets to a multilevel virtual disk of concatenated sets.
