7420/7720

7420/7720 Hardware Overview

Use the information on this page as a preparation reference for servicing replaceable components of 7420 and 7720 controllers. Refer to the following for procedural instructions:

Chassis Overview

The Sun ZFS Storage 7420 Appliance consists of either a single storage controller, or two storage controllers in a high availability cluster configuration, and one to 24 Sun Disk shelves. Refer to the http://www.sun.com/storage/disk_systems/unified_storage/7420/specs.xml for the most recent component specification.

The Sun ZFS Storage 7720 Appliance is comprised of two storage controllers in a high availability cluster configuration installed in a Sun Storage 7700 cabinet, which houses twelve drive cages. Refer to the http://www.sun.com/storage/disk_systems/unified_storage/7720/specs.xml for the most recent component specification.

The 3U chassis form factor dimensions are as follows:

Internal Boards

7420/7720 storage controller chassis have the following boards installed. Field-replaceable units (FRUs) should only be replaced by trained Sun service technicians.

Components

The components of the storage controller are shown in the following figure and identified in the table.

CPU and Memory

The 7420 appliance supports two or four CPUs, with two memory risers required by each CPU. Four or eight 4GB or 8GB DDR3 DIMMs are installed on each riser, accommodating up to 256GB of memory for two CPUs, or up to 512GB for four CPUs. Empty CPU sockets must have memory riser fillers installed for proper cooling. Note: The 7720 supports four CPU configurations only and the four CPU system requires high-line (200 to 240 Volt) AC sources to turn on main power.

Image

Refer to the service label on the cover for DIMM placement information. On every memory riser, slots D0, D2, D4, and D6 must be populated; optionally, slots D1, D3, D5, and D7 may be populated as a group on all installed memory risers. All DIMMs in the system must be identical.

Image

DIMM names in appliance logs and the Maintenance > Hardware view are displayed with the full name, such as /SYS/MB/P0/D7.

Fan Modules

The Fan Modules and Fan Module LEDs of the storage controller are shown in the following figure. The following LEDs are lit when a fan module fault is detected:Image

The system Overtemp LED might light if a fan fault causes an increase in system operating temperature.

PCIe Cards and Risers

The 7420/7720 PCIe expansion system is configured using two types of riser cards, as follows. Note that PCIe cards with x4, x8, or x16 mechanical finger pins will fit in any riser slot but will operate at the lane width of the slot. The Sun Fishworks Cluster Controller 200 belongs in the Cluster slot (C) only. SAS HBAs must all be of the same type, installed in slots 1 and 8, with an optional third SAS HBA in slot 2, and an optional fourth SAS HBA in slot 7. PCIe slots should be populated in the following order: 9 (if used), 0 (if used), 7, 2, 6, 3, 5, 4.

The serial management connector (SER MGT) is an RJ-45 connector and provides a terminal connection to the SP console. Image

The network management connector (NET MGT) is an RJ-45 connector and provides a LAN interface to the SP console. Image

There are four RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet connectors (NET0, NET1, NET2, NET3) located on the motherboard that operate at 10/100/1000 Mbit/sec. These network interfaces must be configured before use.

7420 Standalone and Cluster Controller Configurations

Attached Storage

The 7420 and 7720 do not contain primary storage within their chassis, and therefore connect to external storage shelves and cages. The sections below outline the differences between these two controllers and their attached storage.

Disk Shelf

The 7420 single and cluster controller configurations allow one to four chains of 1 to 6 Sun Disk Shelves. Any combination of disk-only and Logzilla-capable shelves may be combined within the chain in any order. The cabling configurations are unchanged. Half-populated shelf configurations are not supported.

See Disk Shelf Overview for component specifications and diagrams.

7700 Cabinet

Two clustered 7720 controllers are installed in a 7700 main cabinet with 12 disk cages. See 7700 Hardware Overview for component specifications and diagrams.
