NetBackup 5330 compute node overview

The front panel of the compute node contains 12 disk drive slots. The slots are numbered from zero (lower left slot) to 11 (upper right slot).

The NetBackup 5330 compute node contains eight disk drives. Slots 0 through 5 contain mirrored volumes for the operating system and system logs, and two hot-spares. Slots 6 and 7 are currently unconfigured and reserved for future use. Slots 8 through 11 contain blank carriers to maintain airflow.

The rear panel of the compute node contains embedded ports and PCIe card slots.

The embedded ports include the following (with numbers associating the ports to the items in the bulleted list):

  • Four 1Gb Ethernet ports (Item 1)

  • One Video Graphics Array (VGA) port (Item 2)

  • One serial port (for Veritas Technical Support use only) (Item 3)

  • Three USB ports (Item 4)

  • One Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) port for remote management (Item 5)

  • Two 10Gb Ethernet ports (Item 6)

Two power supply modules are installed in the lower left corner of the rear panel. One of the power supplies must be operational at all times. Turn off the device if both power supplies do not work properly.

Input power for the compute node can be 120VAC or 220VAC.
