    InServ Numbering Systems

    The Administrator should know the numbering

    systems for:

    Nodes

    Drive Chassis

    Drive Magazines

    PCI slots

    General Rule: Top = Starts with 0

    Left = Starts with 0

    Fibre Channel and PCI Slot Numbering

    Referencing a port on a node = Node #:PCI slot:port #

    Note Numbering Exception: Fibre Channel top starts with 1

    Node 3

    On the T series node

    there is a dedicatedslot for GIGE which is

    Review Questions for Section 1

    1. What functions does the InServ eagle or osprey chip

    perform?

    2. How many drive magazines in an InServ drive chassis?

    3. If an InServ only has two nodes, what are there numbers

    if it is an T400? If it is an T800?

    4. What are the hot pluggable items on an InServ?

    5. How do you reference a port on a node?

    6. What has to happen before 3PAR acknowledges a hostWrite?
