    IMPORTANT: 
    
    1. DS4000 Storage Manager version 9.19.xx.12 and later is required for
       DS4000 storage subsystem users in countries implementing the new 
       Daylight Saving Time (DST) rules (which includes U.S., Canada, 
       Bermuda). Storage Manager version 9.19.xx.12 or later release includes 
       revised DST transition dates to comply with provision of the Energy 
       Policy Act of 2005 extension of Daylight Saving Time (DST) by 
       four weeks, beginning in year 2007. 
       Please refer to section 1.3 Enhancements for more information. 
    
    2. Microsoft Windows host attachment to the DS4200, DS4700, DS4800, DS5100 
       or DS5300 storage subsystems requires the additional purchase of the IBM 
       DS4000/DS5000 Microsoft Windows operating system Host Kit Option or 
       Feature Code. The IBM DS4000/DS5000 Microsoft Windows Host Kit options 
       contain the required IBM licensing to attach an Microsoft Windows Host 
       System to the DS4200, DS4700, DS4800, DS5100 or DS5300. Please contact 
       your IBM service representative or IBM reseller for purchasing 
       information. This host kit is shipped as standard in the DS4200 storage

       Note: EXP500 and EXP710/EXP100 can not be attached behind the same DS4000 
       storage subsystem. In addition, the EXP500 can only be intermixed with 
       EXP700 if the fibre channel speed of the EXP700 and the DS4000 subsystem 
       drive loop is set to 1Gbps. 
    =======================================================================
    
    1.2  Limitations
    ----------------
    IMPORTANT:
    The listed limitations are cumulative. However, they are listed by the 
    DS4000/DS5000 storage subsystem controller firmware and Storage Manager 
    host software releases to indicate which controller firmware and Storage 
    Manager host software release that they were first seen and documented.
    
    New limitations with Storage Manager Installer (SMIA) package version 
    10.30.xx.09 release.
    
    1.  Using VDS/VSS utilities (diskraid and diskpart) to create and map
        volumes may not immediately see the LUNs listed on the host due to
        PnP taking time to scan for the devices.  Wait for the devices to
        show up in device manager prior to using diskpart.
    
    2.  When writing an SMcli command file, the command reports that the file
        is written, but you cannot find the file.  User Account Control is
        enabled on the host, and it does not allow you to modify any files on
        the hard drive without permission. Disable this control, and rerun the
        SMcli command.
    
    3.  If you use a storage array as a boot device for the Windows Server 2003
        operating system, you cannot use the hibernation feature.
    
    New limitations with Storage Manager Installer (SMIA) package version 
    10.15.xx.08 release.
    
    1.  Reconfiguration operation (DRM) is delayed under some circumstances.
        When a drive fails before the DRM completes, it can take up to eight
        times as long for the DRM to complete.  DRM reconfigurations to RAID
        6 have the longest impact since there are four times as many calculations
        and writes that have to occur compared to other RAID levels.
    
    2.  Host Software display of controller current rate is wrong below 4Gbps.
        Host Software Client - AMW - Logical/Physical View - Controller Properties
        - Host Interfaces - Current rate is displaying "Not Available" when the
        controller negotiated speed is 2Gbps.  When the controller negotiated
        speed is reduced to 1GBs, the Current rate displays "2Gbps"
    
    New limitations with Storage Manager Installer (SMIA) package version 
    10.10.xx.xx release (controller firmware 07.10.xx.xx).
    
    1.  Controller Alarm Bell icon does not appear as a flashing icon
        indicator on the screen to get the user's attention but the icon
        does change appearances.
    
    2.  Miswire of drive tray cabling with DS4700 and DS4200 can cause
        continuous reboot of a controller.  To correct this situation, power
        down the subsytem, cable the drive trays correctly, and power the
        subsystem back up.
    
    3.  Controller button may appeared enabled and mislead the user that
        a controller is selected where in fact, a controller was not 
        highlighted for the botton to appear ready.
    
    4.  Search key is not marked correctly in that page due a JavaHelp 
        Bug with JavaHelp 2.0_01.  A search for keyword "profile" ended
        with phase "prese 'nting p' rofile" being marked. 
    
    5.  storageArrayProfile.txt should be renamed as storageSubsystemProfile.txt
        in Support Data.
    
    6.  Bullets Incorrectly Placed in Volume Modification Help Page
    
    7.  Unable to Escape out of Help Display.  User will be required to 
        close the window by using window close procedure (exit, etc.)
    
    8.  Bullets and Descriptions not alligned into same line in "Viewing
        mirror properties".
    
    9.  The Help window is not getting refreshed properly when using the 
        AMW.Help window.  Workaround is to close and reopen SANtricity.
    
    10.  CLI command failure for creation of volume(s) if capacity parameter
         syntax is not specified.  A space will need to be used between the
         integer value and the units used in the capacity option of this 
         command or, "create volume volumeGroup[4] capacity=15 GB…".
    
    11.  Customer will see high ITW counts displayed in GUI (RLS feature) 
         and logs (files) for diagnostics (support bundle, DDC, etc.) and
         may be concerned that he has a problem.  This will not cause a 
         Critical MEL event.  Known problem previously restricted, when a
         DS4700 or DS4200 controller reboots, these counters increment.
    
    12.  Single tray powercycle during IO activity causes drives in tray to become
         failed.  Customer may see loss of drive (failed) due to timing issue
         of drive detection & spin-up of the drive.  There are one of two
         conditions that result on power-up:
           - (Most likely) Drive will be marked as optimal/missing with
             the piece failed, or
           - (rarely) Drive will be marked as failed with the piece
             failed.
         Workaround is to unfail (revive) drive which restarts reconstruction
         of all pieces.
    
    13.  Event log critical Event 6402 was reported after creating 64 mirror 
         relations.  Eventually,  the mirror state  transitions to synchronizing
         and proceeds to completion on mirror creation.  Workaround is to 
         ignore the MEL logging since this occurs on creation of mirror volumes.
    
    14.  Reconfiguration operations during host IO may result in IO errors when
         arrays contain more than 32 LUNs.  These operations include Dynamic
         Capacity Expansion, Defragmentation, Dynamic Volume Expansion, Dynamic
         RAID Migration.  The workaround is to quiesce host IO activity during
         reconfiguration.
    
    15.  Heavy IO to a narrow volume group of SATA drives can result in host IO
         timeouts.  A narrow volume group refers to an array built of very few
         drives; namely 1 drive RAID 0, 1x1 RAID 1, and 2 + 1 RAID 5.  The workaround
         is to build arrays of SATA drives out of 4 + 1 or greater.
    
    16.  When managing the storage subsystem in-band, the upgrade utility will show
         the upgrade as failed.  This is because of the update and reboot of the
         controllers when activating the new firmware.  SMagent is not dynamic and
         will need to be restarted to reconnect to the storage subsystem.
    
    17.  Selecting and dragging text within the storage profile window causes the
         window to be continuously refreshed.  Work around is to select and copy,
         do not drag the text.
    
    18.  When configuring alerts through the task assistant, the option stays open
         after selecting OK.  The window only closes when the cancel button is
         selected.
    
    19.  The Performance Monitor displays error messages when the storage subsystem
         is experiencing exception conditions.  The performance monitor has a lower
         execution priority within the controller firmware than responding to system
         IO and can experience internal timeouts under these conditions.
    
    20.  Critical MEL event (6402 - Data on mirrored pair unsynchronized) can occur
         under certain circumstances with synchronous RVM.  The most likely scenario
         is when  both primary and secondary are on a remote mirror and an error occurs
         with access to that host.  Resynchronization should occur automatically, when
         automatic resynchronization is selected for a mirror relationship.  However
         if any of the host sites should go down during this interval, recovery by the
         user is required.
    
    21.  A persistent miswire condition is erroneously reported through the recovery
         guru even though the subsystem is properly wired.  The frequency of occurrence
         is low and is associated with an ESM firmware download or other reboot of the
         ESM.  The ESM that is reporting the problem must be reseated to eliminate the
         false reporting.  Not all miswire conditions are erroneous and must be evaluated
         to determine the nature of the error.
    
    22.  Drive path loss of redundancy has been reported during ESM download.  This
         occurs when a drive port is bypassed.  In some instances this is persistent
         until the drive is reconstructed.  In other cases it can be recovered through
         an ESM reboot (second ESM download, ESM pull and replace).
    
    23.  Unexpected drive states have been observed during power cycle testing due to
         internal controller firmware contention when flushing MEL events to disk.  The
         drives have been observed as reconstructing or replaced when they should have
         been reported as failed.  Also volume groups have been reported degraded when
         all drives were assigned and optimal.  An indication that this is the situation
         would be when drive reconstruction has not completed in the expected amount of
         time and does not appear to be making any progress.  The work around is to reboot
         the controller owning the volume where the reconstruction has stalled.
    
    24.  Sometimes when an ESM is inserted a drive's fault line is asserted briefly.  The
         fault line almost immediately returns to inactive, but the ESMs may bypass the
         drive.  In these circumstances, the administrator will have to reconstruct the
         failed drive.
    
    25.  After a drive fail, a manually initiated copyback to a global hot spare may also
         fail.  The work around is to remove the failed drive and reinsert it, then the
         copyback should resume and complete successfully.
    
    26.  When an erronieous miswire condition occurs (as mentioned above in 21), the
         recovery guru reports the miswire on one controller but not on the other.  In
         this situation, ignore the other controller and use the information supplied
         by the controller reporting the problem.
    
    27.  Occasionally a controller firmware upgrade to 07.10 will unexpectedly reboot a
         controller an extra time.  This could generate a diagnostic data capture, however
         the firmware upgrade is always successfull.
    
    28.  When managing previous releases of firmware (06.19 and prior), "working" gets
         displayed as "worki" during volume creation.
    
    29.  The Performance Monitor error window does not come to the front.  You must
         minimize all other foreground windows to get to the error popup window.
    
    30.  When a disk array is in a degraded state, the array will report "needs attention"
         to both the EMW and the AMW.  After taking appropriate corrective action, the
         AMW view of the array will report "fixing" but the EMW state remains at "needs
         attention".  Both statuses are valid, when the fault state is resolved both
         views will change to "optimal".
    
    31.  Storage subsystem loses in-band connectivity during volume creation.  This is
         caused by the controller logout to all hosts that are in the default host
         group when those hosts have QLogic HBAs which is not tolerant of the controller
         initiated logout.  The work around is to first create the host group and host
         port mappings prior to creation of volumes.  Then on volume creation avoid
         using the default host group.
    
    32.  When defining additional LUN mappings to a host, the volume name moves down to
         the bottom of the visible list making it difficult to keep track of the list.
    
    33.  A Windows server will experience a Blue Screen and will need to be rebooted when
         one or more controllers go offline in a storage subsystem.  A LUN/path may be in
         the process of being removed because an HBA has not reestablished a login with
         the controller and the PnP process will remove all LUNs associated with that
         path.  The timing of this should not be seen unless the customer is experiencing
         major problems with controllers going into offline states.
    
    34.  With SMProvider installed, the disk management on the server does not complete
         within 1 hour for a configuration of 20 or more storage subsystems attached on
         the subnet.  This is an issue with the auto-discovery of storage IP addresses
         by the SMProvider that supports the VDS/VSS feature of Windows.  On installation
         of the SMProvider, add all of the IP addresses for the storage subsystems into
         the registry.  On reboot, the registry contains the list of IP addresses and
         avoids the auto-discovery delay.  The registry location is:
           HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Storage\SMprovider /v IpAddresses /t REG_SZ /d
         If the value is empty, the providers will use the auto-discovery method.
    
    35.  Result of an installation not completing normally because of a crash, blue
         screen, or other interruption will prevent the SMclient from being able to
         uninstall.  This is because the InstallAnywhere program writes to the ZeroG
         registry file at the very end of the installation process.  Reinstall the
         package to overwrite the installation and populate the ZeroG registry.
    
    36.  Using ALT-Q to access the QLogic HBA BIOS will hang the host, use CTL-Q instead.
    
    37.  Intermittently the flashcopy utility using the VSS provider fails to create
         persistent flashcopies.  The flashcopy volume is created at the storage
         subsystem and the volume mappings complete successfully, but after about
         one minute the vshadow utility removes the volume because Microsoft's PnP
         driver does not detect the flashcopy volume in time.  If a flashcopy failure
         has occurred, or the limit on flashcopies has been reached, remove any
         unnecessary flashcopies on the storage subsystem and retry the failed
         flashcopy request.
           Please note that some utilities such as NetBackup do not automatically clean
           up the failed request by removing these failed flashcopies from the storage
           array.
    
    38.  Startup of MS DISKRAID utility executing through VDS occasionally reports an
         error.  The following message is reported:
           "Diskraid encountered a fatal error while initializing.  The following
            information may help diagnose the error:
               Error: 0x80080005
               Location Code: 2"
         The server must be rebooted to recover, shutdown and restart of the VSS/VDS
         service does not fix the problem.
    
    
    Legacy restrictions that are still applicable:
     
    1. Reflected Fibre Channel (FC) OPN frames occurs when intermixing the 
       EXP810, EXP710 and EXP100s behind DS4700 or DS4800 storage subsystems. 
       This behavior causes excessive drive side timeout, drive side link down 
       and drive side link up events be posted in the DS4000 storage subsystem 
       Event log (MEL.) It might also cause drives to be by-passed or failed by 
       the controller. NEW DRIVE SIDE FC CABLING REQUIREMENT MUST BE ADHERED TO 
       WHEN HAVING EXP100 CONNECTED TO THE DS4700 OR DS4800 STORAGE SUBSYSTEMS. 
       Please refer to the latest version of the Installation, User's and 
       Maintenance Guide for these storage subsystems that are posted in the IBM 
       DS4000 Support web site for more information.
       http://www.ibm.com/servers/storage/support/disk/
      
    2. Can not increase the capacity of RAID arrays.
       RAID arrays with certain combinations of selected segment size and 
       number of drives that made up the arrays will exceed the available 
       working space in controller dacstore, causing a reconfiguration request 
       (like expanding the capacity of the array) to be denied. These 
       combinations are generally the largest segment size (512KB) with the 
       number of drives in the array is 15 drives or more. There is no 
       work-around. C324144 105008 
    
    3. Interoperability problem between the Tachyon DX2 chip in the DS4500 and
       the DS4300 storage subsystem controllers and the Emulex SOC 422 chip in 
       the EXP810 expansion enclosure ESMs causing up to 5 Fibre Channel loop 
       type errors to be posted in the DS4000 storage subsystem Major Event Log 
       during a 24 hour period. There is a small window in the SOC 422 chip 
       that multiple devices can be opened at one time. This ultimately leads 
       to Fibre Channel loop errors of Fibre Channel link up/down, Drive 
       returned CHECK CONDITION, and Timeout on drive side of controller. IBM
       recommends the use of the Read-Link-Status function to monitor drive loop
       for any problems in the drive loop/channel. There is no work-around.
    
    4. The single digit of the Enclosure IDs for all enclosures (including the
       DS4000 storage subsystem with internal drive slots) in a given redundant 
       drive loop/channel pair must be unique. For example, with four 
       enclosures attached to the DS4300, the correct enclosure ID settings 
       should be x1, x2, x3, and x4 (where x can be any digit that can be set). 
       Examples of incorrect settings would be 11, 21, 31, and 41 or 12, 22, 
       32, and 62. These examples are incorrect because the x1 digits are the 
       same in all enclosure IDs (either 1 or 2). 
       
       If you do not set the single digit of the enclosure IDs to be unique 
       among enclosures in a redundant drive loop/channel pair, then drive 
       loop/channel errors might be randomly posted in the DS4000 subsystem 
       Major Event Log (MEL), especially in the cases where the DS4300 storage 
       substems are connected to EXP810s and EXP100s. In additon, enclosure IDs 
       with same single digits in a redundant drive loop/channel pair will 
       cause the DS4000 subsystem controller to assign a soft AL_PA address to 
       devices in the redundant drive loop/channel pair. The problem with soft 
       AL_PA addressing is that AL_PA address assignment can change between 
       LIPs. This possibility increases the difficulty of troubleshooting drive 
       loop problems because it is difficult to ascertain whether the same 
       device with a different address or a different device might be causing a 
       problem.  
    
    5. In DS4000 storage subsystem configurations with controller firmware 
       6.15.2x.xx and higher installed, the performance of write intense 
       workloads such as sequential Tape restores to DS4000 Logical drives with 
       large I/O request sizes (e.g. 256kB) is degraded if the DS4000 logical 
       drives are created with small segment sizes such as 8KB or 16KB. The 
       work around is to create the DS4000 logical drives with segment size of 
       64KB or higher.
    
    6. Do not pull or insert drives during the drive firmware download. 
       In addition, ALL I/Os must also be stopped during the drive firmware
       download. Otherwise, drives may be shown as missing, unavailable or
       failed. 
    
    7. Do not perform other storage management tasks, such as creating or 
       deleting logical drives, reconstructing arrays, and so on, while 
       downloading the DS4000 storage subsystem controller firmware and DS4000 
       EXP ESM firmware. It is recommended that you close all storage 
       management sessions (other than the session that you use to upgrade
       the firmware) to the DS4000 storage subsystem that you plan to update.
        
    8. For Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 operating systems. When loading the 
       Microsoft Hot fix KB916048, required in installing Storage Manager, if the 
       IBM xSeries Server hangs during reboot it may be resolved by using the 
       latest Broadcom driver for the Bcom HT1000.

    1.5  Dependencies
    -----------------
    
       ATTENTION:
       
       1. DS4000 storage subsystem CONTROLLER FIRMWARE VERSION 06.1X.XX.XX 
          REQUIRES THAT THE FIRMWARE VERSION OF AN ATTACHED EXP700 ENVIRONMENTAL 
          SERVICE MODULE (ESM) BE AT VERSION 9326 OR HIGHER. IF THE EXP700 ESM 
          FIRMWARE IS EARLIER THAN THE 9326 VERSIONS, THE EXP700 ENCLOSURE AND 
          THE INSTALLED DRIVES MAY NOT BE DISPLAYED IN THE DS4000 SUBSYSTEM 
          MANAGEMENT WINDOW AFTER THE CONTROLLER FIRMWARE IS UPGRADED. THE 
          CURRENT RELEASE ESM FIRMWARE VERSION FOR THE EXP700 ESM IS 9330. 
    
       2. DS4000 STORAGE SUBSYSTEM CONTROLLER FIRMWARE VERSION 06.1X.XX.XX 
          REQUIRES THAT THE FIRMWARE VERSION OF AN ATTACHED EXP100 ENVIRONMENTAL 
          SERVICE MODULE (ESM) BE AT VERSION 955X OR HIGHER. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE 
          TO UPGRADE EXP100 ESM FIRMWARE VERSIONS THROUGH 953X TO VERSION 955X 
          WHEN THE CONTROLLER FIRMWARE IS AT 06.1X.XX.XX. TO DETERMINE THE 
          FIRMWARE LEVEL OF AN EXP100 ESM, IDENTIFY THE PRODUCT LABEL LOCATED AT 
          THE REAR OF THE EXP100 ENCLOSURE. ONLY LABELS ON WHICH THE FIELD 
          REPLACEABLE UNIT (FRU) PART NUMBER READS 25R0156 POSITIVELY INDICATE 
          THAT AN ESM MODULE IS RUNNING FIRMWARE VERSION 955X OR HIGHER. IF THERE 
          IS NO LABEL OR THE PART NUMBER ON THE LABEL DOES NOT READ 25R0156, THE 
          ESM MAY STILL HAVE THE FIRMWARE VERSION 955X OR HIGHER IF IT HAD BEEN 
          PREVIOUSLY UPGRADED. IF NECESSARY, CONTACT YOUR IBM REPRESENTATIVE, 
          SUPPORT, OR RESELLERS FOR ASSISTANCE. IN ADDITION, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE 
          TO UPGRADE THE ESM FIRMWARE FROM VERSION 953X TO VERSION 956X OR LATER 
          DIRECTLY. THE 953X ESM MUST BE UPGRADED TO VERSION 9554 FIRST BEFORE IT 
          CAN BE UPGRADED TO VERSION 956X.
          
       3. CURRENTLY, THE ONLY DS4000 STORAGE SUBSYSTEMS THAT ARE SUPPORTED BY 
          THE 06.12.XX.XX CONTROLLER FIRMWARE VERSION ARE THE DS4100 - ALL 
          MODELS, THE DS4300 WITH STANDARD (DUAL CONTROLLER) OR TURBO OPTIONS, 
          THE DS4400 AND THE DS4500. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS CONTROLLER FIRMWARE ON 
          ANY OTHER DS4000 STORAGE SUBSYSTEM. THERE IS NOT ANY CHECKING FOR THIS 
          RESTRICTION INSIDE THE STORAGE MANAGER CLIENT PROGRAM.
       
       4. The only DS4000 storage subsystems that are supported by the 
          06.14.xx.xx or higher (06.14.xx.xx, 06.15.xx.xx, 06.16.xx.xx, 
          06.19.xx.xx or 6.23.xx.xx) controller firmware version are the DS4200 
          (06.16.88.xx or higher), DS4300 Standard-dual controller or Turbo 
          models (06.19.xx.xx or higher), and the DS4500 (06.19.xx.xx or higher), 
          DS4700 (06.16.4x.xx or higher) and DS4800 (06.14.xx.xx or higher) 
          storage subsystems. Currently, there are not any controller firmware 
          packages version 06.14.xx.xx and higher for other DS4000 storage 
          subsystems. Do not download this controller firmware on any other 
          DS4000 storage subsystems.
    
       5. Always check the README files (especially the Dependencies section) 
          that are packaged together with the firmware files for any required 
          minimum firmware level requirements and the firmware download 
          sequence for the DS4000 drive expansion enclosure ESM, the DS4000 
          storage subsystem controller and the hard drive firmware.
    
       6. If the managed DS4000 storage subsystem had the FC/SATA intermix 
          premium feature enable, do not upgrade the controller firmware from 
          version 06.10.xx.xx to version 06.12.xx.xx until a FC/SATA intermix 
          premium feature key file is generated and available. Once the 
          controller firmware is upgraded to version 06.12.xx.xx, the FC/SATA 
          intermix premium feature will be shown as out-of-compliance and the 
          FC/SATA intermix premium feature key file is required to re-enable the 
          feature. When the FC/SATA intermix premium feature is in out-of-
          compliance state, LUNs management functions like creations, deletions 
          and modifications will not be operational. Please refer to the FC/SATA 
          intermix premium feature activation card that was shipped with the 
          FC/SATA intermix premium feature kit for instructions to generate the 
          required premium key file.
    
       7. The DS4700 and DS4800 storage subsystems do not support the attachment
          of the DS4000 EXP700 drive expansion enclosures. The EXP700 enclosure 
          must be upgraded into DS4000 EXP710 enclosure using the DS4000 EXP700 
          Models 1RU/1RX Switched-ESM Option Upgrade Kit before it can be 
          attached to the DS4700 and DS4800 storage subsystems.
    
       8. THE DS4000 STORAGE SERVER WITH CONTROLLER FIRMWARE VERSION 05.41.1X.XX
          MUST BE UPGRADED TO CONTROLLER FIRMWARE VERSION 05.41.5X.XX FIRST 
          BEFORE IT CAN BE UPGRADED TO CONTROLLER FIRMWARE VERSION 06.1X.XX.XX OR 
          LATER. OTHERWISE, THE ERROR 231-FIRMWARE INCOMPATIBLE WILL BE 
          DISPLAYED. 
          
       9. DS4000 storage subsystem controller firmware versions 6.12.16.xx or 
          higher and EXP100 storage expansion enclosure ESM firmware version 9563 
          or higher are required to provide support for the new 400G SATA drive 
          options and CRUs (P/Ns 39M4570 and 39M4575, respectively) in addition 
          to the new 250G SATA drive CRUs (P/N 40K6837.) This new 250G SATA drive 
          CRU is functionally equivalent to the previously-released CRUs (P/N 
          90P1349).
       
      10. The version 06.16.xx.xx of the DS4700 or DS4800 controller firmware 
          is not compatible with the EXP100 SATA drive expansion enclosures. DO 
          NOT download it into the DS4800 storage subsystems that have EXP100 
          drive expansion enclosures attached. After the 06.16.xx.xx controller 
          firmware is activated, the DS4800 storage subsystem will not recognize 
          the drives in EXP100 enclosures, causing loss of data availability to 
          the raid arrays and logical drives that are defined in those drives. 
          IBM recommends installing the controller firmware version 6.23.xx.xx 
          and higher in the DS4000 storage subsystems that have EXP100 SATA drive 
          expansion enclosure attached instead. 
     
      11. Controller firmware 06.16.xx.xx or higher is required to support
          EXP810 storage expansion enclosures.
    
      12. Controller firmware 06.16.4x.xx and higher is required for the DS4700
          -all models and the DS4800-model 80A/80H. These models do not support 
          older 06.16.xx.xx versions of controller firmware. The attachment of 
          EXP100 enclosures is ONLY supported for these models only if the 
          controller firmware is upgraded to version 6.23.xx.xx or higher.
    
      13. Controller firmware 06.16.88.xx and higher is required for the
          DS4200-all models. These models do not support older 06.16.xx.xx 
          versions of controller firmware. The attachment of EXP100, EXP710
          and EXP810 enclosures is not supported for these DS4200 models.
          
      14. When using STORport miniport version of the Fibre Channel host bus 
          adapter device driver, Windows Server 2003 service pack 1 must be 
          installed along with the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 STORport hot-
          fix KB916048 - An updated Storport storage driver (version 
          5.2.3790.2723) is available for Windows Server 2003. The Windows 
          Server 2003 service pack 1 and the STORport hot-fix 916048 are 
          available for download at the Microsoft support web site.
          
      15. The latest version of Microsoft Windows SCSIport and the STORport FC
          HBA device drivers do not support the BUSCHANGE=0 parameter. It 
          requires the DS4000 storage subsystem controller firmware to be 
          compatible with the MS Plug and Play driver. Not all versions of the 
          DS4000 storage subsystem controller firmware are compatible with the 
          Microsoft Plug and Play driver. Currently, only the controller 
          firmware versions that are listed in the table below for each of the 
          DS4000 subsystems, which support the SCSIport device drivers with 
          BUSCHANGE parameter set to Microsoft required default value of 2, are 
          compatible with the MS Plug-and-Play driver.

          without BUSCHANGE=0 parameter.
     
      16. Controller firmware 06.19.xx.xx and higher is required for the DS4300- 
          standard-dual controller or Turbo models and the DS4500-all models for 
          attaching the EXP810 storage expansion enclosures.
      
      17. Controller firmware 06.23.xx.xx and higher is required for the DS4700- 
          all models and the DS4800-all models for attaching EXP810, EXP710 and 
          EXP100 together behind a DS4000 storage subsystem. The intermix of 
          EXP810 and EXP100 behind a DS4700 or DS4800 is supported only with 
          controller firmware version 6.23.xx.xx and higher.
          
      18. The DS5100 and DS5300 storage subsystems do not support the attachment
          of the DS4000 EXP100, EXP700, EXP710 drive expansion enclosures. 
    
      19. The DS5000 EXP5000 drive expansion enclosure is supported attached
          to the DS5100 and DS5300 only.      
      
    
       IBM DS Storage Manager version 10.30 provides full management

    2.3  Helpful Hints
    ------------------
    
    1. The DS4500 and DS4300 storage subsystem have updated recommended drive-side 
       cabling instructions. The DS4500 instructions are documented in the IBM 
       System Storage DS4500 Installation, Users. and Maintenance Guide (GC27-
       2051-00 or IBM P/N 42D3302). The DS4300 instructions are documented in the 
       IBM System Storage DS4300 Installation, Users. and Maintenance Guide 
       (GC26-7722-02 or IBM P/N 42D3300). 
       
       Please follow the cabling instructions in these publication to cable the 
       new DS4500 and DS4300 setup. If you have an existing DS4500 setup with 
       four drive side minuhub installed that was cabled according to the 
       previously recommended cabling instructions, please schedule down time as 
       soon as possible to make changes to the drive side FC cabling. Refer to 
       the IBM System Storage DS4500 and DS4300 Installation, Users. and 
       Maintenance Guide for more information. 
    
    2. If you are unable to see the maximum number of drives during 
       Automatic Configuration, you should be able to use Manual 
       Configuration to select individual drives and select the maximum 
       number of drives allowed.
    
    3. Depending on the storage subsystem that you have purchased, you
       may have to purchase the DS4000 storage partitioning premium feature
       option or an option to upgrade the number of supported partitions
       in a storage subsystem. Please see IBM Marketing representatives
       or IBM resellers for more information.
       
       - IBM DS4100 storage subsystem (machine type 1724): The standard and 
         single controller configuration does not have the DS4000 storage 
         partitioning premium enabled. Four partition, eight partition, 
         sixteen and an upgrade from four to eight partition storage 
         partitioning premium feature options can be purchased. 
    
       - IBM DS4200 storage subsystem (machine type 1814): Depending on the 
         ordering channels, the DS420 storage subsystem is either shipped with 
         2 storage partitions or with a user selected 2, 4, 8, 16 or 64 storage 
         partitions. If the DS4200 storage subsystem is ordered with less than 
         64 partitions, various storage partition feature upgrade options can 
         be purchased to increase the maximum number of supported storage 
         partitions.
    
       - IBM DS4300 storage subsystem (machine type 1722): The standard

         partition feature upgrade options can be purchased to increase the 
         maximum number of supported storage partitions.
    
    
    4. Do not delete the Access LUN or Access Volume. The Access LUN is required
       by the SMClient to communicate with the storage controllers when using the 
       in-band management method.
      
    5. The DS4000 controller host ports or the Fibre Channel HBA ports can not 
       be connected to a Cisco FC switch ports with "trunking" enable. You might
       encounter failover and failback problems if you do not change the Cisco
       FC switch port to "non-trunking" using the following procedure:
     
       a. Launch the Cisco FC switch Device Manager GUI. 
       b. Select one or more ports by a single click.
       c. Right click the port(s) and select Configure, a new window pops up
       d. Select the "Trunk Config" tab from this window, a new window opens
       e. In this window under Admin, select the "non-trunk" radio button, it is
          set to auto by default.
       f. Refresh the entire fabric.      
    
    6. When making serial connections to the DS4000 storage controller, the 
       baud rate is recommended to be set at either 38200 or 57600. Note: Do 
       not make any connections to the DS4000 storage subsystem serial ports 
       unless it is instructed by IBM Support. Incorrect use of the serial 
       port might result in lost of configuration, and possibly, data. 
    
    7. Fabric topology zoning requirement. To avoid possible problem at the 
       host level, it is best practice that all Fibre Channel (FC) Switches 
       must be zoned such that a single FC host bus adapter can only access 
       one controller per storage array. In addition, this zoning requirement 
       also ensures the maximum number of host connections can be seen and 
       log into the controller FC host port. This is because if a FC HBA port 
       is seen by both controller A and B host ports, it will be counted as 
       two host connections to the storage subsystem - one for controller A 
       port and one for controller B port.
       
       Note: The DS4000 storage subsystems DS4500, DS4400 and FAStT500 (IBM 
       machine type 1742 and 3552) have two ports per controller - one per 
       minihub slot. The DS4000 storage subsystems DS4300 (IBM machine type 1722) 
       and DS4100 (IBM machine type 1724) have two ports per controller. The 
       DS4000 storage subsystem FAStT200 (IBM machine type 3542) has only one 
       port per controller. The DS4800 storage subsystem (IBM machine type 1815) 
       has four ports per controller.
    
    8. All enclosures (including DS4000 storage subsystem with internal drive 
       slots) on any given drive loop/channel should have complete unique ID's,
       especially the single digit (x1) portion of the ID, assigned to them. 
       For example, in a maximum configured DS4500 storage subsystem, enclosures 
       on one redundant drive loop should be assigned with id's 10-17 and 
       enclosures on the second drive loop should be assigned with id's 20-27. 
       Enclosure id's with the same single digit such as 11, 21 and 31 should 
       not be used on the same drive loop/channel. 
           
       In addition, for enclosures with mechanical enclosure ID switch like 
       DS4300 storage subsystems, EXP100 or EXP710 storage expansion 
       enclosures, do not use enclosure ID value of 0. The reason is with the 
       physical design and movement of the mechanical enclosure ID switch, it 
       is possible to leave the switch in a “dead zone” between ID numbers, 
       which return an incorrect enclosure ID to the storage management 
       software. The most commonly returned enclosure ID is 0 (zero). In 
       addition to causing the subsystem management software to report 
       incorrect enclosure ID, this behavior also result in enclosure ID 
       conflict error with the storage expansion enclosure or DS4000 storage 
       subsystem intentionally set the ID to 0.  
    
       The DS4200 and DS4700 storage subsystems and the EXP420 and EXP810 
       storage expansion enclosures did not have mechanical ID switches. Thus, 
       they are not susceptible to this problem. In addition, these storage 
       subsystems and storage expansion enclosures automatically set the 
       Enclosure IDs. IBM recommendation is not make any changes to these 
       settings unless the automatic enclosure ID settings resulting in non-
       unique single digit settings for enclosures (including the storage 
       subsystems with internal drive slots) in a given drive loop/channel.
        
         
    9. The ideal configuration for SATA drives is one drive in each EXP per 
       array, one logical drive per array and one OS disk partition per 
       logical drive. This configuration minimizes the random head movements 
       that increase stress on the SATA drives. As the number of drive 
       locations to which the heads have to move increases, application 
       performance and drive reliability may be impacted. If more logical 
       drives are configured, but not all of them used simultaneously, some 
       of the randomness can be avoided. SATA drives are best used for long 
       sequential reads and writes.
    
    10. IBM recommends at least one hot spare per EXP100 drive expansion enclosure.
        A total of 15 hot-spares can be defined per DS4000 storage subsystem 
        configuration.
       
    11. Starting with the DS4000 Storage Manager (SM) host software version 9.12 or
        later, the Storage Manager client script window looks for the files with 
        the file type of  ".script" as the possible script command files. In the 
        previous versions of the DS4000 Storage Manager host software, the script 
        window looks for the file type ".scr" instead. (i.e. enableAVT.script for 
        SM 9.12 or later vs. enableAVT.scr for pre-SM 9.12)
    
    12. When you configure a LUN from the DS4000 storage subsystem as a boot 
        device, the system displays a blue screen and does not respond when it 
        is manually or automatically set to hibernate. If you use a LUN in the 
        DS4000 storage subsystem as a boot device for Windows Server 2003, you 
        cannot enable the hibernation feature. To ensure that the hibernation 
        feature is disabled, complete the following steps:
    
        a. Select Start >> Settings >> Control Panel >> Power Options.
        b. Select the Hibernate tab.
      
        IMPORTANT: If the Hibernate tab does not appear in this dialog, then 
        your system does not support hibernate. No additional action is 
        required.
        
        c. Is the Enable Hibernate Support check box selected?
          | Yes – Unselect the check box, select Apply, and then go to step d.
          | No – Go to step d.
        d. Select the Power Schemes tab.
        e. From the Turn Off Hard Disks drop-down menu, select Never.
        f. Select OK.
    
    13. (Windows Server 2003) Cluster resources might fail on a host after 
        rebooting if the "Failback immediately" option is checked in the 
        Microsoft Cluster Server software. With this option checked, you might 
        see failed resources or devices not associated with their preferred 
        node. The current workaround is to make sure that the "Prevent 
        failback" option is checked under Group Properties. This is the default 
        option. Do not use the "Failback immediately" option.
    
    14. (Windows 2000) In a Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) environment 
        configured with VERITAS DMP, rebooting a server node owning the 
        resources might take a long time (10 to 15 minutes). It is possible 
        that the long server boot time might cause some Windows delayed write 
        failures. The workaround is to move all the resources from the server 
        node you are planning to reboot to another node before rebooting. 
    
    15. (Windows Server 2003) When in a server cluster environment, a failed 
        disk in the storage subsystem does not show as failed in the Cluster 
        Administrator. The host still receives I/O errors, and the disk is 
        shown as failed in the storage management software.
       
        This is a known issue with the Windows Server 2003 operating system.
        Choose one of the following workarounds:
        • Workaround 1 – Reboot the host that owns the disk resource. The 
          Cluster Administrator should now show the proper state of the disk 
          resource.
        • Workaround 2 – Change the ownership of the disk resource to a 
          different node in the server cluster configuration.

    3.0 Configuration Information
    -----------------------------
    
            
    3.1 Configuration Settings
    --------------------------
    
    
    1. For the Microsoft Windows servers in MSCS configuration, the IBM DS4000 
       FC2, FC2-133 single or dual port and FC 4Gbps single or dual port FC HBA 
       adapter "Port Down Retry Count" BIOS parameter must be change to 70 from 
       the default of 30. You can either use the Qlogic SANsurfer (aka. FAStT 
       Management Suite Java (FAStT MSJ)) program or the FC HBA Fast!UTIL 
       program to change the setting in 32bit or X64 64bit servers. To invoke 
       the Fast!UTIL program, perform the following steps:
       
       1. Reboot the server
       2. Press <CNTL+Q> when the statement "Press <CNTL+Q> for Fast!UTIL " is
          displayed when the server scan the FC-133 adapter during boot to get 
          invoke the Fast!UTIL program. 
       3. If there are multiple FC2-133 HBAs in your server, a list of the
          HBAs will be displayed. Select the appropriate HBA and press enter to 
          get to the Fast!Util Options menu. Then, select the Configuration 
          Settings menu option followed by Advanced Adapter Settings menu 
          option to display the menu that the Port Down Retry Count parameter 
          is displayed. Select the parameter and press enter to edit the new 
          value. 
       4. Press ESC twice to get to the "Save setting" menu. Select appropriate
          option to save the settings and return to the Fast!UTIL Options menu.
          You can either select another HBA for modification or press ESC and
          select Reboot System when you are prompted. 
       
       Alternatively, you can also use the Qlogic SANsurfer program to modify 
       the setting from the Microsoft Windows operating system environment. 
       This is also the recommended method to change NVSRAM setting in Intel 
       Itanium II 64bit (IA64) servers. However, you must reboot the servers 
       for the changes to become effective.
       
       In addition, the 
       HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Disk registry value 
       must be increased to 120 from the default setting of 60. A utility, 
       SMRegUpdate.reg, is provided in the SMUtil host software package to 
       facilitate this registry change.
    
       The QLogic SANsurfer program can be downloaded from the DS4000 System 
       Storage support web site.
       
    2. If a host in a cluster server configuration lost a physical path to a 
       DS4000 storage subsystem controller, the logical drives that are mapped 
       to the cluster group will periodically failover and then failback 
       between cluster nodes until the failed path is restored. This behavior 
       is the result of the automatic logical drive failback feature of the 
       RDAC multipath driver. The cluster node with a failed path to a DS4000 
       controller will issue a failover command of all logical drives that were 
       mapped to the cluster group to the controller that it can access. After 
       a programmed interval, the nodes that did not have failed path will 
       issue failback command for the logical drives because they can access 
       the logical drives both controllers, resulting in the cluster node with 
       the failed path not be able to access certain logical drives. This 
       cluster node will then issue a failover command for all logical drives, 
       repeating the logical drives failover-failback cycle.   
       
       The workaround is to disable this automatic failback feature. For Windows,
       change the DisableLunRebalance registry setting of the 
       [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\rdacdisk\Parameters]
       registry key from 0 to 3 in each cluster node. Then, reboot each node 
       for the changes to take effect.
    
    3. By default, the IBM DS4000 Storage Manager 8.3 and higher firmware does 
       not automatically map logical drives when the IBM DS4000 storage 
       partitioning premium feature is enabled. This means that the logical 
       drives after being created are not automatically presented to the host
       systems.
       
       a. For a new installation, after creating new arrays and logical drives,
          create a storage partition with the host type of Windows 2000/Server 
          2003 non-clustered or Windows 2000/Server 2003 clustered and map the 
          logical drives to this partition. 
       
       b. If you are upgrading the NVSRAM with Storage Partitions, you may have
          to change the default host type to match the host system OS. After 
          upgrading the NVSRAM, the default host type is reset to Windows 
          2000/Server 2003 non-clustered for DS4000 storage subsystem with 
          controller firmware version 06.14.xx.xx or later. For DS4000 storage 
          server with controller firmware version 06.12.xx.xx or earlier, it is 
          reset to Windows non-clustered (SP5 or higher), instead.
                  
       Refer to the IBM DS4000 Storage Manager online help to learn more about 
       creating storage partitions and changing host types.
    
    
    4. Running script files for specific configurations. Apply the 
       appropriate scripts  to your subsystem based on the instructions you have 
       read in the publications or any instructions in the operating system 
       readme file. A description of each script is shown below.
    
       - SameWWN.script: Setup RAID controllers to have the same World Wide 
         Names. The World Wide Names (node) will be the same for each 
         controller pair. The NVSRAM default sets the RAID controllers
         to have the same World Wide Names.
    
       - DifferentWWN.script:  Setup RAID controllers to have different World 
         Wide Names. The World Wide Names (node) will be different for each 
         controller pair. The NVSRAM default sets the RAID controllers 
         to have the same World Wide Names.
    
       - EnableAVT_W2K_S2003_noncluster.script:  The script will enable automatic
         logical drive transfer (AVT/ADT) for the Windows 2000/Server 2003 
         non- cluster heterogenous host region. The default setting is to 
         disable AVT for this heterogenous host region. This setting is one 
         of the requirements for setting up the remote boot or SAN-boot. Do 
         not use this script unless it is specifically mentioned in the 
         applicable instructions. (This script can be used for other host 
         type if modifications are made in the script, replacing the Windows 
         2000/Server 2003 non-cluster host type with the appropriate host 
         type that needs to have AVT/ADT enabled) 
      
       - DisableAVT_W2K_S2003_noncluster.script:  The script will disable the 
         automatic logical drive transfer (AVT) for the Windows 2000/Server 
         2003 non-cluster heterogenous host region. This script will reset 
         the Windows 2000/Server 2003 non-cluster AVT setting to the default. 
         (This script can be used for other host type if modifications are 
         made in the script, replacing the Windows 2000/Server 2003 non-
         cluster host type with the appropriate host type that needs to have 
         AVT/ADT disabled) 
      
    6. When you are configuring IBM machine type 1722, 1724, 1742, 1814, 1815
       or 3552 storage subsystems in host cluster Remote Mirror configurations, 
       contact IBM support for supported host cluster configurations and 
       instructions for configuring IBM storage controllers in clustered Remote 
       Mirror configurations.

    3.3 Unsupported configurations
    ------------------------------
    
       The following lists configurations that are currently not being 
       supported with IBM DS Storage Manager Version 10.30.
    
    
       1. The DS4100 (machine type 1724-all models) storage subsystem does not
          support the attachment of the DS4000 EXP710, EXP700 and EXP500 (FC) 
          drive expansion enclosure. Please contact IBM representatives or 
          resellers for the availability of such support in the future.
       
       2. The DS4800 storage subsystem (machine type 1815-all models) does not
          support the attachment of the FAStT EXP500 and DS4000 EXP700 drive 
          expansion enclosures. 
    
       3. The DS4200 (machine type 1814 - models 7VA/H) with controller firmware
          6.16.88.xx installed does not support the attachment of the DS4000 
          EXP100 (SATA), EXP710 (FC) and EXP810 (SATA and FC) drive expansion 
          enclosures. In addition, it does not support Fibre Channel disk drive 
          options.   
    
       4. The IBM DS4000 EXP420 Expansion Enclosure is not supported attached 
          to any other IBM DS4000 Storage Controllers except the DS4200.
          
       5. The DS4100 with Single Controller option does not support the 
          attachment of the DS4000 storage expansion enclosures.
          
       6. The DS4300 storage subsystem with Single Controller option does not
          support the controller firmware version 06.1x.xx.xx. The correct 
          firmware version for these DS4300 storage subsystem models is 
          05.34.xx.xx.
          
       7. Fibre Channel loop environments with the IBM Fibre Channel Hub, 
          machine type 3523 and 3534, in conjunction with the IBM Fibre Channel 
          Switch, machine types 2109-S16, 2109-F16 or 2109-S8. In this 
          configuration, the hub is connected between the switch and the IBM 
          Fibre Channel RAID Controllers.
    
       8. The IBM Fibre Channel hub, machine type 3523, connected to IBM 
          machine type 1722, 1724, 1742, 1814, 1815, 3542 and 3552.
    
       9. A configuration in which a server with only one FC host bus 
          adapter connects directly to any DS4000 storage subsystem with dual 
          controllers is not supported. The supported configuration is the 
          one in which the server with only one FC host bus adapter connects 
          to both controller ports of any DS4000 storage subsystem with dual 
          controllers via Fibre Channel (FC) switch (SAN-attached 
          configuration.)
          
      10. The DS5300 and DS5100 storage subsystem (machine type 1818-all models) 
          does not support the attachment of the FAStT EXP500, DS4000 EXP700, 
          DS4000 EXP710, DS4000 EXP100, or DS4000 EXP420 drive expansion 
          enclosures. 
          
      11. The IBM DS5000 EXP5000 Expansion Enclosure is not supported attached 
          to any other IBM Storage Controllers except the DS5300 and DS5100.
