IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager version 10.86.x5.43 for Microsoft Windows
Server 2012, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2 - X64 (64bit), Windows Server
2008 R2 SP2 with HyperV Clustering edition, Windows Server 2008 SP2 - x86

 (Please see Important note #3 below)
 
Attention:
      With controller firmware 7.86.32.00 and later, the DSM is supported on
      Windows 64bit ONLY. Please do not upgrade any storage subsystem to controller
      firmware to 7.86.32.00 or later if that storage subsystem has 32bit Windows
      hosts attached. 

      A problem causing recursive reboots exists while using 7.36.08 and 
      7.36.12 firmware on IBM System Storage DS4000 or DS5000 systems. This 
      problem is fixed in 7.36.14.xx and above firmware. All subsystems 
      currently using 7.36.08 and 7.36.12 firmware MUST run a file system 
      check tool (DbFix) before and after the firmware upgrade to 7.36.14.xx 
      or higher. Instructions for obtaining and using DbFix are contained in 
      the 7.36.14.xx or higher firmware package. Carefully read the firmware 
      readme and the DbFix instructions before upgrading to firmware 
      7.36.14.xx or higher. For subsystems with firmware level 7.36.08 or 
      7.36.12, configuration changes should be avoided until a firmware 
      upgrade to 7.36.14.xx or higher has been completed successfully. 

      Subsystems not currently using 7.36.08 or 7.36.12 do not need to run 
      DbFix prior to upgrading to 7.36.14.xx or higher. DbFix may be run after 
      upgrading to 7.36.14.xx or higher, but it is not required. DbFix is only 
      applicable to subsystems using 7.36.xx.xx or greater firmware.

      If problems are experienced using DbFix or the resulting message 
      received is "Check Failed", DO NOT upgrade your firmware and contact 
      IBM support before taking any further actions.

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.


No new limitations with Storage Manager version 10.86.x5.43 release
(controller firmware 07.86.xx.xx)


No new limitations with Storage Manager version 10.86.xx05.0035 release
(controller firmware 07.86.xx.xx)


New limitations with Storage Manager version 10.86.xx05.0028 release
(controller firmware 07.86.xx.xx)

1.  JAWs is only able to read out the title of the Window on which the initial
    focus is, it is not reading out any content inside that Window.(LSIP200327858)
2.  When using OLH with JAWS screen reader, will have difficulty on navigating
    through the content in the Index Tab under Help content window due to 
    incorrect and duplicate reading of the text. Please use the search/find tab
    in the OLH. (LSIP200331090)
3.  When using the accessibility software JAWS 11 or 13, may hear the screen 
    reading of a background window, even if the dialog is not in focus. 
    Please use the INSERT+B key to get the reading reinitiated for the dialog
    in focus.(LSIP200329868)

4.  Will not be able to find Tray tab on storage array profile dialog launch.
    User needs to navigate to Hardware tab to find Tray tab.(LSIP200332950)
5.  Will not be able to perform multiple array upgrades having different 
    firmware versions. Please choose to upgrade arrays having different 
    firmware versions separately.(LSIP200335962)
6.  May hit IO error if all the paths are lost due delayed uevent, Please
    always make sure to run 'multipath -v0' command to rediscover the 
    returning path.  This will prevent the host from encountering an IO 
    error due to the host losing all paths should the alternate path fails.
    (LSIP200347725)
7.  Volume copy pair itself would get removed, if user attempts to create 
    a shadow copy of a source volume of a volume copy pair using VSS provider.
    There is no data loss as shadow copy creation is only allowed after 100%
    copy for volume copy is completed. User needs to manually re-establish
    the volume copy relation. This would result in re-copy of data from source
    volume to destination volume. (LSIP200352122)
8.  There may be some confusion when the data is compared between summary tab and
    storage array profile. There is no actual functionality issue.
    The way the contents are labelled is not consistent.(LSIP200354832)


New limitations with Storage Manager version 10.84.xx.30 release
(controller firmware 07.84.xx.xx).

1.  On a more than 30 drive disk pool with T10-PI enabled, the reconstruction
    progress indicator never moves because a finish notification is not sent
    to Storage Manager. When seeing this issue, just putting the replacement
    drive in the storage subsystem will allow the reconstruction to resume.
    (LSIP200298553)


No new limitations with Storage Manager version 10.83.xx.23 release
(controller firmware 07.83.xx.xx).


New limitations with Storage Manager version 10.83.xx.18 release
(controller firmware 07.83.xx.xx).

1.  A non-T10PI logical drive can not be "volumecopied" to a logical 
    drive with T10 PI functionality enabled. A non-T10 PI logical drive
    can only be volumeCopied to a non-T10 PI logical drive.(LSIP200263988)
2.  Initiating dynamic logical drive expansion (DVE) on logical drives that are
    part of an asynchronous enhanced remote mirroring (ERM) without write order 
    consistency will result in an error that is misleading because the 
    controller is sending incorrect return code. DVE can only perform on logical 
    drives having asynchronous ERM with write order consistency or synchronous 
    ERM relationship.(LSIP200287980)
3.  Cache settings can not be updated on thin logical drives. They can only 
    be updated on the repository drives that are associated with these thin
    logical drives.(LSIP200288041)
4.  Wait at least two minutes after canceling a logical drive creation in the
    disk pool before deleting any logical drives just created in the disk pool
    from the cancelled logical drive creation process. (LSIP200294588)
5.  T10PI errors were incorrectly reported in the MEL log for T10PI-
    enabled logical drives that are participated in an enhanced remote mirroring
    relationship during the logical drive initializations.(LSIP200296754)
6.  Having more than 20 SSD drives in a storage subsystem will result in 
    SSD premium feature "Out-of-Compliance" error. One has to remove the extra 
    SSD drives to bring the total number of SSDs in the storage subsystem to 20 
    or less.(LSIP200165276)
7.  Pressing shift + F10 does not display the shortcut or context menu for the 
    active object in the Storage Manger host software windows. The work-around 
    is to use right-click on the mouse or the Windows key on the keyboard.
    (LSIP200244269)
8.  Storage Manager subsystem management window performance might be slow
    due to Java runtime memory leak. The work around is to close the Storage
    Manager client program after the management tasks are completed.
    (LISP200198341) 



New limitations with Storage Manager version 10.77.xx.28 release
(controller firmware 07.77.xx.xx).

1.  Only one EXP5060 drive slot with a 3 TB SATA drive inserted can have
    the ATA translator firmware updated at any one time if the inserted 3 TB 
    drive has "Incompatible" status. Simultaneously updating ATA translator 
    firmware on multiple 3 TB drives having an "Incompatible" status might 
    result in an "interrupted" firmware download state that requires the power-
    cycling of the subsystem to clear it. This limitation is reduced with the
    Storage Manager version 10.83 and later. The timeout was increased to 
    accommodate simultaneously updating ATA translator firmware on up to five 3 
    TB SATA drives having an "Incompatible".   

2.  The 3 TB NL SAS drive can only be used to create non-T10PI arrays and
    logical drives. However, in certain conditions, where there are not any 
    available hot-spare drives for T10PI enabled arrays, it will be used by 
    the controller as a hot-spare for a failed drive in these T10PI enabled 
    arrays. The controller will operate properly in this scenario and there 
    are no adverse affects to the system while the 3 TB NL SAS drive is being 
    used as the hot spare in a T10PI enabled array. This limitation is removed
    with controller firmware version 7.83.xx.xx and later. Please upgrade the 
    controller firmware version 7.83.xx.xx and later if there is need to create
    a T10 PI-enabled arrays using 3TB NL SAS drives. 


New limitations with Storage Manager version 10.77.xx.16 release
(controller firmware 07.77.xx.xx).

1.  When you switch between the Search tab and the TOC tab, the topic that was 
    open in the Search tab is still open in the TOC tab. Any search terms that 
    were highlighted in the Search tab are still highlighted in the TOC tab. 
    This always happens when you switch between the Search tab and the TOC tab.
    Workaround: Select another topic in the TOC to remove all search term 
    highlighting from all the topics.

2.  Support tab in the AMW kept open for longer duration will result in 
    display of unevenly spaced horizontal marks. If the storage Manager is 
    kept open for long durations a few grey lines may be seen on the 
    Support Tab after restoring the AMW.  Re-launching the AMW eliminates 
    this problem.

3.  The storage subsystem configuration script contains the logical 
    drive creation commands with incorrect T10PI parameter. The workaround 
    is to manually edit the file to change instances of dataAssurance 
    parameters to T10PI.

4.  The DS3500 subsysem does not support External Key Management at this time.
    Please contact IBM resellers or Representatives for such support in the 
    future.


New limitations with Storage Manager version 10.70.xx.25 release
(controller firmware 07.70.xx.xx).

1.  Kernel Panic reported on Linux SLES10 SP3 during controller failover.
    Probability of this issue happening in the field is low.
    Workaround: Avoid placing controllers online/offline frequently.
    Novell was informed about this issue. Opened Novell Bugzilla NVBZ589196.

2.  CHECK CONDITION b/4e/0 returned during ESM download on DS5000
    The interposer running LP1160 firmware is reporting an Overlapped Command 
    (0B/4E/00) for a Read Command containing an OXID that was very recently 
    used for a previous read command on the same loop to the same ALPA.
    In almost all cases, this command will be re-driven successfully by the 
    controller. Impact should be negligible.
    Workaround: Can be avoided by halting Volume I/O prior to downloading ESM 
    firmware.

3.  If a host sees RAID volumes from the same RAID module that are discovered 
    through different interface protocols (fibre/SAS/iSCSI) failovers will 
    not occur properly and hosts IOs will error out. If the user does not 
    map volumes to a host that can be seen through different host 
    interfaces this problem will not occur.    
    Workaround: Place controller online and reboot the server to see all 
    volumes again.

4.  Linux guest OS reported I/O error during Controller Firmware Upgrade on 
    ESX4.1 with Qlogic HBA. The user will see I/O errors during controller 
    activation from the guest OS due to mapped devices becoming inaccessible 
    and offline.
    Workaround: This issue occurs on various Linux guest OSes, so to avoid 
    the issue the user should perform an offline (no I/O to controllers) 
    controller firmware upgrade.

5.  I/O Error on Linux RH 4.8 after rebooting controller on DS3500 iSCSI. The 
    devices will be disconnected from the host until the iSCSI sessions are 
    re-established.
    workaround: Restart the iSCSI service.  Configure the iSCSI service to 
    start automatically on boot.

6.  CFW Upgrade on 4.1 w/SLES 11 fails with IO error on SLES 11 Guest 
    partition. This issue occurred if there is filesystem volume in SLES11 
    VM. User will see I/O errors and Filesystem volumes in SLES11 VMs will 
    be changed to read-only mode.
    Workaround: User can perform controller FW upgrade with either no I/O 
    running on SLES11 VM or no Filesystem created in SLES11 VMs.

7.   "gnome-main-menu" crashes unexpectedly while install HSW on Suse 10.
    The crashes appear to happen randomly with other applications as well.?
    After the crash the menu reloads automatically.?Dismiss the prompt and 
    the host will reload the application.?This problem appears to be a 
    vendor issue.

8.  I/O errors on RHEL 4.8 guests on VMware 4.1 during controller reset.
    VMware has suggested VMware 4.1 P01 may resolve this issue.
    No support was issued for RHEL 4.8 guests under VMware 4.1 over SAS.
    Workaround: Use RHEL 5.5.

9.  VMWare guest OS not accessible on iSCSI DS3524 (VMware SR 1544798051, 
    VMware PR 582256).  VMware has suggested VMware 4.1 P01 may resolve 
    this issue.
    Workaround: Use Fibre Channel or SAS connectivity.

10. When DMMP is running in a BladeCenter SAS environment, I/O errors occur 
    during failover and controller firmware operations. Support for Device 
    Mapper and SLES 11.1 SAS has been restricted and will not be published.
    Workaround: Install RDAC.

11. SLES11.1ppc SAN boot fails on PS700 with 10 Gb Qlogic ethernet to DS3512.
    After configuration and install of Linux on a LUN using software iSCSI, 
    the JS blade will not boot into the OS.
    Workaround: Use local boot, SAS or Fibre Channel.

12. No response?messages from Device Mapper devices with volumes on 
    non-preferred path. Any I/O operations against volumes mapped to failed 
    devices will timeout or hang.
    Workaround: This problem requires the host to be rebooted in order to 
    restart I/O successfully. Update SLES11.1 to maintenance update 
    20101008 containing kernel version 2.6.32.23-0.3.1.  Note that this 
    kernel version has not been fully certified by LSI and should only be 
    used if this issue is encountered.
    Bugzilla #650593 contains issue details and fix provided by Novell.

13. LifeKeeper 7.2.0 recovery kits require multiple host ports to use SCSI 
    reservations.
    Workaround: Use two single port SAS HBAs. In this case each port will 
    be represented as a host, and LifeKeeper will identify both separately.  
    Another way to avoid the issue is to use MPP as the failover driver.

14. Unexpected "jexec" messages during mpp installation/un-installation on 
    SLES 11.1.
    Workaround:  None - https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=651156

15. I/O write errors on mounted LifeKeeper volumes before node resources 
    transfers to another node.
    recovery: I/O can be restarted as soon as node resources are transferred 
    to another node in the cluster.
    Workaround:  None.

16. Solaris 10u8 guest OS disks become inaccessible on ESX35u5 during sysReboot 
    on array controller.  This can be avoided by not using raw device 
    mappings and instead using virtual disks. If raw device mappings are 
    required, they must be used with virtual compatibility mode selected 
    when adding the disks to the guest OS.
    Workaround:  None.

17. Solaris 10u8 guest OSes reported I/O error during Controller Firmware 
    Upgrade on ESX35U5 with Qlogic HBA.  Permanent restriction.
    Workaround: Perform upgrade with no I/O.

18. Solaris guest OS reported I/O error during Controller reset on ESX35U5.
    The only recovery method is to rebooting the failed VM host.
    Permanent restriction.

1.5  Dependencies
-----------------

   ATTENTION:
   
   1. The DS5020, DS3950, EXP5000, EXP810, EXP520, and EXP395 FC-SAS drives must 
      have the FC-SAS interposer firmware version 2264 or later installed. Some 
      drives with FC-SAS interposer firmware version earlier than version 2264 
      may report incorrect inquiry information during Start of Day. This causes 
      the controller firmware to make the drive uncertified (incompatible), 
      which in turn, causes the drive to no longer be accessible for I/Os. This 
      condition will also cause the associated array to go offline. Since the 
      array is no longer accessible, the controller firmware may not recover the 
      cache for all LUNs under this array. This behavior may result in data not 
      being written. If you believe that you have encountered this issue, please 
      call IBM Support for assistance with the recovery actions.
      
      The FC-SAS interposer firmware version 2264 and later is available in the 
      ESM/HDD firmware package version 1.78 or later. 
     
   2. The 3 TB SATA drive option for EXP5060 expansion enclosure requires
      ATA firmware version LW1613 and higher. The drive will be
      shown as "Incompatible" if it is installed in an EXP5060 drive 
      slot with ATA translator firmware version older than LW1613. Please
      refer to the latest EXP5060 Installation, Users and Maintenance Guide
      for more information on working with the 3 TB SATA drive option.  

   3. The Storage Manager host software version 10.83.x5.18 or higher is 
      required for managing storage subsystems with 3 TB NL FC-SAS drives. 
      Storage manager version 10.83.x5.18 or higher in conjunction with 
      controller firmware version 7.83.xx.xx and later allow the creation of 
      T10PI-enabled arrays using 3 TB NL FC-SAS drives.  

   4. CURRENTLY, THE ONLY IBM DS 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 IBM DS STORAGE SUBSYSTEM. THERE IS NOT ANY CHECKING FOR THIS 
      RESTRICTION INSIDE THE STORAGE MANAGER CLIENT PROGRAM.
   
   5. The only IBM DS 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 IBM DS storage 
      subsystems. Do not download this controller firmware on any other 
      IBM DS storage subsystems.

   6. 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 IBM DS storage subsystem drive expansion enclosure ESM, the controller 
      and the hard drive firmware.

   7. 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.

   8. 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.
   
   9. 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. 
      
  10. 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.
      
  11. 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.

      instructions provided in the readme.txt file located in either the 
      Host_Adapter directory on this installation CD or from the appropriate 
      driver package that is downloaded from the IBM Support Web site.


2. If there is previous version 7.x, 8.x or 9.10 of the IBM IBM DS storage 
   manager host software installed in the system, you have to uninstall it first 
   before installing the new version of the storage manager host software. 
    
   For instruction to uninstall the IBM DS Storage Manager host software, please 
   refer to the IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager Version 10 Installation 
   and Host Support Guide or IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager Version 10.8 
   Installation and Host Support Guide.

   If the previously installed DS3000/4000/5000 storage manager version is of 10 
   or later, the IBM DS storage manager host software can be updated with the 
   new code from the installer without the need of uninstalling the existing 
   storage manager host software packages first. Just click "Yes" in the window 
   that the installer displays, stating that there are already installed IBM DS
   storage manager host software in the server and whether you want to update it 
   with the new code. 

3. Install the new storage manager host software from the appropriate CD-ROM 
   directory for your Operating Systems or from the host software package that 
   you downloaded from the IBM Support Web site. Refer to the IBM System Storage 
   DS Storage Manager Version 10.8 Installation and Host Support Guide for

   end user license for machine code (EULA) depending on the Operating System 
   versions.
   
4. Install the Windows MPIO DSM multipath driver.
   Starting with the Storage Manger version 10.75.xx release, the Microsoft 
   multipath driver MPIO DSM was packaged separately from the SMIA installer 
   bundle that includes the SMClient, SMUtil and SMAgent. You must use this 
   package to install the Microsoft multipath driver MPIO DSM on servers that 
   are IO attached to the DS3500/DS3000/4000/5000 subsystems. To install, 
   execute the package .exe file and click through the installer wizard. 
   
   Note: To enable Asymmetric Logical Unit Access (ALUA) failover method with 
   storage subsystems having controller firmware version 7.83.xx.x and later 
   installed, the host type, W2KALUA (host region 21), must be selected for the 
   defined host ports.  

5. Upgrade the DS3000/DS4000/DS5000 storage subsystem firmware in the following 
   order - 
         1. Controller firmware and NVSRAM
         2. ESM firmware

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 minihub 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 IBM DS 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

     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 IBM DS storage subsystem 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 IBM DS storage subsystem controller,
   the baud rate is recommended to be set at either 38200 or 57600.
   Note: Do not make any connections to the IBM DS storage subsystem serial
   ports unless instructed by IBM Support. Incorrect use of the serial 
   port might result in loss of configuration and/or loss of data.

7. All enclosures (including IBM DS 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 IBM DS 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.
    
     
8. 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.

9. IBM recommends at least one hot spare per EXPxxxx drive expansion enclosure.
   A total of 15 hot-spares can be defined per IBM DS storage subsystem 
   configuration.
   
10. Starting with the IBM DS 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 IBM DS 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)

11. When you configure a LUN from the IBM DS 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 
    IBM DS 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.

12. (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.

13. (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. 

14. (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  when the statement "Press  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 Qlogic support web 
   site.
   
2. (Not applicable for configurations with IBM DS storage subsystem having 
   controller version 7.83.xx.xx and later installed)
   If a host in a cluster server configuration lost a physical path to a 
   IBM DS 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 IBM DS
   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 IBM DS Storage Manager 8.3 and higher firmware does 
   not automatically map logical drives when the IBM IBM DS 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 IBM DS storage subsystem with 
      controller firmware version 06.14.xx.xx or later. For IBM DS storage 
      subsystem 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 IBM DS 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: (Do not use this script when 
     the installed storage subsystem controller firmware version is of 
     7.83.xx.xx and later)
     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

   - 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.

3.3 Unsupported configurations
------------------------------

   The following lists configurations that are currently not being 
   supported with IBM DS Storage Manager Version 10.86.


   1. The IBM EXP395 Expansion Enclosure is not supported attached to 
      any other IBM DS Storage Subsystems except the DS3950. EXP810 drive 
      enclosures are also supported in the DS3950 with the purchase of a 
      premium feature key.
      
   2. The IBM EXP520 Expansion Enclosure is not supported attached to 
      any other IBM DS Storage Subsystems except the DS5020.  EXP810 drive 
      enclosures are also supported in the DS5020 with the purchase of a 
      premium feature key.
      
   3. The IBM EXP5000 Expansion Enclosure is not supported attached 
      to any other IBM DS Storage Subsystems except the DS5100 and DS5300.
       
   4. 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.
   
   5. The DS4800 storage subsystem (machine type 1815-all models) does not
      support the attachment of the FAStT EXP500 and DS4000 EXP700 drive 
      expansion enclosures. 

   6. The DS4200 (machine type 1814 - models 7VA/H) 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.   

   7. The IBM DS4000 EXP420 Expansion Enclosure is not supported attached 
      to any other IBM DS4000 Storage Subsystems  except the DS4200.
      
   8. The DS4100 with Single Controller option does not support the 
      attachment of the DS4000 storage expansion enclosures.
      
   9. The DS5100 and DS5300 storage subsystems do not support the attachment
      of the DS4000 EXP100, EXP700, EXP710 drive expansion enclosures.  The
      EXP810 is only supported through an RPQ process.
      
  10. The DS5000 EXP5000 drive expansion enclosure is supported attached
      to the DS5100 and DS5300 only.

  11. 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.
   
  12. The DS4300 storage subsystem with Single Controller option does not
      support the controller firmware version 06.xx.xx.xx. The correct 
      firmware version for these DS4300 storage subsystem models is 
      05.34.xx.xx.
      
  13. 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.

  14. The IBM Fibre Channel hub, machine type 3523, connected to IBM 
      machine type 1722, 1724, 1742, 1814, 1815, 3542 and 3552.

  15. A configuration in which a server with only one FC/SAS/iSCSI host bus adapter
      connects directly to any IBM DS storage subsystem with dual controllers 
      is not supported. The supported configuration is the one in which the 
      server with only one FC/SAS/iSCSI host bus adapter connects to both controller 
      ports of any IBM DS storage subsystem with dual controllers via FC/SAS/Ethernet
      switch (SAN-attached configuration.)
