Before you begin
In order to fully implement the HP StorageWorks P4000 Unified NAS Gateway, you must first set up an HP P4000 SAN Solution. The P4000 Unified NAS Gateway is then connected to the HP P4000 SAN as described in this document. The HP StorageWorks P4000 SAN Solutions documentation provides additional informationabout creating and managing HP StorageWorks P4000 SAN Solutions. Go to http://www.hp.com/go/p4000, click HP Support and Drivers, select your HP StorageWorks P4000 SAN Solution model, and then click Manuals.
This document provides instructions for installing the HP StorageWorks P4000 Unified NAS Gateway.
The HP StorageWorks P4000 Unified NAS Gateway consists of one or more WindowsStorage Server systems. These hardware components are configured in a clustered environment with a P4000 SAN Solution. The P4000 SAN Solution provides iSCSI block services while the P4000 Unified NAS Gateway provides data services using the CIFS/NFS protocols. The P4000 Unified NAS Gateway also provides optional data protection services in the form of backup tools HP Data Protector, Data ProtectionManager (DPM), VMWare, and VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB). The P4000 Unified NAS Gateway is clustered and connected to the HP P4000 SAN network segment using standard Ethernet IP switches. Up to eight (8) P4000 Unified NAS Gateway nodes can be clustered together. IMPORTANT:

The instructions and illustrations in this document describe the installation of a 2–node P4000 Unified NAS Gateway. If you purchased the 1–node P4000 Unified NAS Gateway, all instructions related to configuring the second node of the solution do not apply to your product. The 1–node solution does not support full HA capability, but isHA ready and can be upgraded to a full HA solution by purchasing and installing an additional 1–node P4000 Unified NAS Gateway.
Install the P4000 Unified NAS Gateway hardware
1. 2. Unpack the P4000 Unified NAS Gateway hardware. Install the P4000 Unified NAS Gateway components into a rack using the provided rail kits.
Install the rail kit by following the HP Rack Rail Kit installationinstructions. Go to http://www.hp.com/go/p4000, click HP Support & Drivers, select your product model, and then click Manuals. If the document is not available, enter HP Rack Rail Kit installation instructions into the Search field.
Make cable connections
Each P4000 Unified NAS Gateway includes 6 NIC connectors. Each of these NIC connectors is reserved for a specificnetwork connection purpose: • 1 NIC connector is reserved for heartbeat connectivity between the two P4000 Unified NAS Gateway storage systems. • 2 NIC connectors are reserved for multi-path connectivity into P4000 SAN storage nodes. • 3 NIC connectors are reserved for front file serving into a client network In order to set up the cluster environment for the P4000 Unified NAS Gateway, you must firstconnect the hardware components in a fault-tolerant configuration. Using Ethernet cables, make the following connections: • Connect the 2 P4000 NAS Gateway nodes to each other to establish heartbeat connectivity between the two. This connection is shown in red. • Connect the P4000 NAS Gateway nodes to a P4000 SAN (5) using standard IP switches (4). These connections are shown in green and blue. •Connect the P4000 NAS Gateway nodes (3) to the client network (1) using a standard IP switch (2). These connections are shown in black. • Connect the P4000 NAS Gateway power cords (6) to power outlets. • If using iLO2 for remote management, connect an Ethernet cable from the dedicated iLO2 management port (7) to the network (preferably on the same subnet).
