Powering On and Checking LEDs

Perform the initial check of the array according to the following procedure.

1. Connect two AC (or DC) power cables to the power/fan modules on the rear of the array.

2. Power on the array using both power switches.

3. Make sure all front LEDs turn green.

When a controller is powered on, continuous media scans begin on all physical drives that are active components of logical drives. Whenever media scan is running on a drive, its front-panel LED flashes green. It is normal for almost all front-panel drive LEDs to flash green unless media scanning is terminated. For more information, refer to the Sun StorEdge 3000 Family RAID Firmware User's Guide.
