Set drawer service action allowed indicator

The set tray drawer command turns on or turns off the Service Action Allowed indicator light on a drawer that holds drives.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600 and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.

Roles

To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Storage Admin role.

Context

Drawers are used in high-capacity drive trays. The drawers slide out of the drive tray to provide access to the drives. Use this command only for drive trays that use drawers. If the storage array does not support the Service Action Allowed indicator light feature, this command returns an error. If the storage array supports the command but is unable to turn on or turn off the indicator light, this command returns an error.

Notes

Before you can enter this command, the drive tray must meet these conditions:

Attention: Do not issue this command if you cannot meet any of these conditions.

All volumes with drives in the affected drive drawer are checked to make sure that the volumes have drawer loss protection before the command is sent. If the volumes have drawer loss protection, the Set Service Action Allowed command proceeds without stopping I/O activity to the volume.

If any volumes in the affected drawer do not have drawer loss protection, you must stop I/O activity to those volumes. A warning appears, which indicates that this command should not be completed.

To turn on or turn off the Service Action Allowed indicator light for the entire high-capacity drive tray, use the set tray serviceAllowedIndicator command.

Use of the forceOnWarning parameter

If you are preparing a component for removal and want to override the warning that the volumes do not have drawer loss protection, enter this parameter:

serviceAllowedIndicator=forceOnWarning

The forceOnWarning parameter sends the request to prepare to remove a component to the controller firmware, and forces the set drawer serviceAllowedIndicator command to proceed.

Attention: This parameter marks all drives in the drawer inaccessible and could result in failed volumes and complex recovery, including the necessity to reboot the host. Use this parameter with caution.
