HP CD-ROM Server - Installation Instructions

The products
HP J3278B SureStore CD-ROM Server
This tower has a server module in the top bay, and high-speed HP SureStore CD-ROM drives pre-installed in the other seven bays.
HP J4150A SureStore CD-ROM Server Plus
This tower has a server module in the top bay. A large internal hard drive is installed in the second bay, providing HP Multi-Disc Cache for storing copies of CDs and providing increased performance for all CDs. High-speed HP SureStore CD-ROM drives are pre-installed in the other six bays.
HP J4152A SureStore CD/DVD-ROM Server
This tower has a server module in the top bay, and high-speed HP DVD-ROM drives pre-installed in the other seven bays. These drives read both CD and DVD-ROM discs.
SCSI features
All the towers have an expansion SCSI connector for attaching a second tower with seven more drives, such as the HP J4148A SureStore CD Expansion Tower with its seven CD-ROM drives.
The SCSI bus is terminated at one end by the server module and at the other end by an internal active terminator on the backplane.
The SCSI IDs are set automatically based on the position of the HP drives in the tower. The topmost drive in the tower (CD or DVD or hard disk) is assigned ID 0 (zero), the second drive (CD or DVD) is assigned ID 1, and so on, and the lowest drive is assigned ID 6.

  caution:
If your installation requires a different power cord than the one supplied with the server, be sure to use a power cord displaying the mark of the safety agency that defines the regulations for power cords in your country. The mark is your assurance that the power cord can be used safely with the server.
Expanding the tower (optional)
The HP J4148A SureStore CD Expansion Tower provides the additional bays for expanding beyond the drives in the server tower. It includes a SCSI cable to connect the two towers and an external active HP SCSI terminator to be installed on a rear SCSI connector. SCSI IDs are set automatically on HP CD-ROM drives based on their position in the tower. The topmost position on this accessory tower is ID 0 on the second SCSI bus “B”, and the lowest position is ID 6 on the second SCSI bus “B”. All 14 drives are read by the server module located in the server tower.
Consult the User’s Guideaccompanying the expansion tower for its specific installation instructions. Complete the SCSI cable connection to the server tower, the SCSI termination connection, and the power cord connection as directed in the guide. The section below, “Connecting the towers,” includes the steps needed to start up both towers.
  note:
To install the expansion tower after the server tower has been installed, you must switch off power to the server tower before installing the expansion tower. After installing the expansion tower, follow the steps below under “Connecting the towers” to restart the server tower.
Connecting the towers
Before you begin, do the following:
  • Verify with your network administrator that a 10Base-T (Ethernet) or 100Base-TX (Fast Ethernet) network connection is ready for the server tower. Locate the twisted-pair network cable (with an RJ-45 connector).
  • Verify that the tower’s power is off. (The power switch should be out, not in.)
  • Verify the power configuration:
  • Verify that the input voltage switch is set according to the power standard of the country of use. If necessary, set the input voltage switch on the rear of the tower to either 115 volts or 230 volts (see Figure 1 below).
  • Verify that the power cord is appropriate for the country of use.
Figure : Verify the power configuration
  • If you are expanding the server tower (using its rear SCSI connector illustrated above), you must complete all cable and termination connections on both towers before you apply power. Apply power to the expansion tower before you apply power to the server tower.
      caution:
    The SCSI bus may be damaged if you connect or disconnect any units when the power is on.
  • Optional: Use the HP C2982A CD-ROM Tower Rackmount Kit to mount the tower in one of the following 19-inch racks:
  • HP J1464A Rack System/U25
  • HP J1466A Rack System/U33
  • HP J1500A Rack System/E41
  • HP J1501A Rack System/E33
  • HP J1502A Rack System/E25
    Follow the steps below to connect the towers:
    1. Attach the power cord to the rear of the tower and to the power line source. Do not switch on power yet.
      If you are also installing the HP J4148A SureStore CD Expansion Tower, now install its power cord and switch on its power.
    2. Attach the network cable to the RJ-45 network connector on the rear of the tower.
    3. On the front of the tower, switch on power. Verify that:
      • The ON/BUSY or BUSY indicators on the HP CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives go on.
      • The four indicator lights on the server module (illustrated below) go on at the beginning of the power-on self-test.
        Figure : Verify the server's status
        When the Status indicator remains green and the SCSI indicator is off, the server is ready for use. Depending on the number of drives in use, this may take a few seconds to five minutes.
        The server auto-negotiates the link speed--10 or 100 megabits per second--with other devices on the network.
    4. Load a compact disc into the tray of a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive (see the sections below for instructions). Verify that:
      • A CD-ROM drive’s ON/BUSY indicator blinks and then turns off shortly, and its DISC indicator goes on. If either one flashes continuously, then either the disc is not standard or there is a problem with the drive.
      • A DVD-ROM drive’s BUSY indicator blinks. If it remains on continuously, then either the disc is not standard or there is a problem with the drive.
      • The server’s SCSI indicator blinks during access. If it does not, then verify your connections and cycle power (switch power off and wait 10 seconds and then switch power on again) to the server tower.
        Repeat Step 4 for all CD/DVD-ROM drives (including those in an expansion tower).
Using the HP SureStore CD-ROM drive
Figure : Example drive
  • Tray door:
    Press Stop/Eject button to open door. Insert CD into drawer. Press Stop/Eject button to close door.
  • Stop/Eject button:
    Push to eject CD. This will not work if the power is off or if ejection has been disabled by configuration. If you have eliminated these possibilities and still have difficulty ejecting a disc, use the Emergency Eject button, described below.
  • Emergency Eject button (recessed):
    If the automatic Stop/Eject button does not work although power is on and ejection is enabled in the configuration, you may have to use this method of disc ejection as an last resort. Switch off power. Insert a paper clip or other thin rigid object in this hole to press the recessed button to eject the CD.
  • ON/BUSY indicator:
    On (yellow) when power is switched on. Blinking continuously when CD is inserted and being accessed. Off when CD is inserted and not being accessed.
  • DISC indicator:
    On (green) when power is on and CD is inserted. Off if no CD is inserted.
Loading and operation
  1. While the drive is powered up, push the Stop/Eject button. The tray drawer will slide out in 2-3 seconds.
  2. Lay the bare CD into the depression in the tray, label side up. For rack-mounted servers, the label side faces the server module; secure the CD in place by sliding the three clips over it.
  3. Press the Stop/Eject button again, and the tray will slide shut within 2-3 seconds.
      note:
    We recommend using the Stop/Eject button to close the tray in a smooth and secure manner. Closing the tray by pressing the front of the drawer by hand is not recommended.
Using the HP DVD-ROM drive
Figure : Example drive
  • Disc loading slot:
    Insert a CD or DVD disc into this slot with the label side up (or for rack-mounted servers, with the label side facing the server module).
  • Eject button:
    Push to eject the disc. This will not work if the power is off or if ejection has been disabled by configuration. If you have eliminated these possibilities and still have difficulty ejecting a disc, use the Emergency Eject button, described below.
  • Emergency Eject button (recessed):
    If the automatic Eject button does not work although power is on and ejection is enabled in the configuration, you may have to use this method of disc ejection as an last resort.
      caution:
    Switch off power to the tower and wait 10 seconds before doing this procedure.
    Insert the emergency ejection pin (supplied in the product package) into the access hole until the disc ejects. (If the pin is lost, you may substitute a 1 /16 inch hex key (Allen wrench.) Do not use a paper clip; it is not rigid enough and may damage the drive! Then restart the server tower.
  • BUSY indicator:
    On (green) when power is switched on. Blinking when an inserted disc is being accessed. Off when no disc is inserted or the disc is not being accessed, or there is a problem.
Loading and operation
Press the Eject button to eject any disc currently in the slot. Insert the CD or DVD disc into the slot with the label side up (or for rack-mounted servers, with the label side facing the server module). The BUSY LED goes on while the disc initializes; it goes off when the disc is ready for access.
Caring for the CD/DVD-ROM discs
Always store a disc in its protective case or sleeve when not installed in a CD or DVD drive. Store it at temperatures between +10 and +60 degrees C (+14 to +140 degrees F). Allow the disc to stabilize after moving it from one temperature extreme to another, before using it.
Check each DVD and CD periodically to determine if it needs cleaning. If the disc is dusty, use a commercially available dust removal spray to blow off dust particles. After removing the dust particles, wipe the disc using a clean, soft cotton cloth. Use a straight-line motion, wiping from the center to the outside edge in a non-circular motion.
Figure : Correct procedure for cleaning a disc
If a disc becomes dirty or soiled with grease or other contaminants not removable by wiping, clean it with a CD disc cleaner available at most computer dealers. Follow the directions packaged with the cleaner. Do not use other cleaning solutions.
  caution:
DO NOT: touch the surface of a disc with your fingers, scratch the reflective top or bottom surface of the disc, drop the disc, or expose the disc to dirt, moisture, or high humidity.
