Which utility on a pre-G2 ProLiant server has been replaced by the ROM Based Setup Utility (RBSU)?
Integrated Management Log (IML)
Array Diagnostic Utility (ADU)
System Configuration Utility (SCU)
Option ROM Configuration for Arrays (ORCA)
System Setup Utility (SSU)
Starting with the ProLiant ML350 update in late 2000 and continuing with Generation 2 and later ProLiant servers, the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU) replaced the System Configuration Utility (SCU).
How does the hot-plug RAID memory of a DL740 work?
Three memory cartridges are controlled by three memory controllers in a RAID 5 configuration.
Five memory cartridges are controlled by five memory controllers in a RAID 4 configuration.
Two memory cartridges are controlled by two memory controllers in a RAID 1 configuration.
Multiple memory cartridges are controlled by a single memory controller in a user- selectable RAID configuration.
Servers with hot plug RAID memory use five memory controllers to control five memory cartridges. Hot plug RAID memory is conceptually similar to RAID Level 4 in that it generates parity for an entire cache line of data during write operations and records the parity information on a dedicated parity cartridge. Note: All DL740's come standard with all five memory cartridges populated and Hot Plug RAID memory enabled. Total memory consists of addressable memory plus the redundant memory.
What is a migration feature of an HP Smart Array controller?
It migrates stripe size to fine tune read/write performance.
It migrates inactive cache to a more active controller.
It migrates overflow data to an inactive online spare until excess files can be deleted.
It perform automatic data migration when new hard drives are added.
Stripe size migration to tune performance.
When following an action plan, what is the most important thing according to the HP troubleshooting methodology?
Observe and record the results of each step.
Change all parts at the same time.
Not getting distracted by any new error messages.
Avoid changing the action plan until completed.
Be sure to do the following when implementing the optimized action plan:
Change only one variable at a time.
Record the output.
Observe the results.
Test the solution.
Which utility can be used to clear NVRAM?
ROM Based Setup Utility (RBSU)
Options ROM Configuration for Arrays (ORCA)
RBSU main menu - Advanced options The Advanced Options menu includes options that allow you to configure the advanced features of the server. These include E rase Non-volatile Memory
According to HP Troubleshooting Methodology, why is the implementing preventive measures step important?
To assure the problem has been resolved.
To help avoid future occurrences of the problem just resolved.
To minimize customer involvement in the solution of the problem.
To specify a callback time to check on the problem status.
Implement corrective or preventive measures to avoid or reduce the likelihood of future occurrences of the problem just resolved.
How is the logical geometry of the drives determined?
By the RAID level in Array Configuration Utility (ACU) or Option ROM Configuration for Arrays (ORCA)
By the Stripe Size in Array Configuration Utility (ACU) or Option ROM Configuration for Arrays (ORCA).
By the firmware on the Smart Array Controller.
By the Operating System parameter in ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).
The logical geometry of the drives is determined by the operating system selected. Previously stored data will be lost if the operating system setting is changed. To change operating systems, the data must be backed up, then reinstalled.
What kind of RAID implementation does HP Smart Array Controllers support?
HP SCSI Managed Array Technology (SMART) Array controllers provide hardware level RAID support.
According to the HP troubleshooting methodology, baselining is .
Organizing the collected data into a reference point.
Creating a minimal system configuration to build on.
Installing a basic operating system to build on.
Removing all applications from the system.
Baselining is the process of organizing the data collected into the specific configuration of a system.
Which PCI cards will fit into a 3.3 volt PCI slot?
3.3-volt and 5 volt
Universal and 3.3 volt
The latest systems designed to support faster slots with 3.3-volt signaling accept only Universal and 3.3-volt PCI cards.
When both PCI and PCI-X devices are present on the bus, the PCI-X transfers information at the .
slowest device on that bus
fastest device on that bus
each individual device
the default speed setting in BIOS
PCI-X (like PCI) adjusts the operating frequency to match that of the slowest device on the bus.
When troubleshooting a problem, what is the purpose of evaluating the data?
To isolate faults to a hardware or software subsystem.
To explain the failure mode to the customer.
To verify that you have changed the correct part.
To assure that the problem has been corrected.
The LEDs of disk drives indicate the HP Smart Array Controller read/write operations during periods of inactive because of .
Automatic Server Recovery (ASR)
Dynamic Sector Repair (DSR)
Emergency Monitoring Service (EMS)
Automatic Array Monitoring (AAM)
During periods of inactivity, drives attached to an array controller will run Dynamic Sector Repair (DSR). This is normal activity.
Which models of Smart Array Controllers are embedded on the HP ProLiant server system boards?
Smart Array 641 and 642
Smart Array 5i and 5i Plus
Smart Array 5302 and 5304
Smart Array 6402 and 6404
Embedded Smart Array 5i is an intelligent array controller for entry-level, hardware- based fault tolerance.
Note: Because the Integrated Smart Array Controller is embedded on the system board and cannot be removed you cannot upgrade it to the Smart Array 5i Controller but you can move any hard drives to a Smart Array 5i controller.
