Power Up procedure:

  1. Connect all power cables to storage servers and JBODs according to the hardware documentation.

  2. Power up existing JBODs first. Depending on the Genesis RX (GRX) revision, connecting the power cables might be enough. On other generations, the power button in the front must be pressed. Please check your HW documentation.

  3. Power up the GRX storage server. After a few minutes, an attached monitor will show a “genesis login:” prompt, indicating the system has fully booted.

  4. Navigate to the Web-UI ( http://your-ip/ ) and check if the system is ready for use. If the GRX displays the message ”The system is temporarily unavailable” for a long time, contact Scale Logic support.

  5. Attempt to mount the storage from the client(s), such as with the HyperFS client. If the clients were booted before the storage, you may need to reboot them.

    Power Down procedure:

  6. Stop all client activities, check that the storage is not in use anymore.

  1. Select the action you want to perform in the “Power Control” column. Available options are “Power On”, “Reboot”, and “Power Off”. Confirm your action in the pop-up window.


Genesis RX + HyperFS on VM (Genesis Unlimited, SAN in a Box, and SAN in a Box with JBODs).

Power Up:

  1. Connect all power cables to storage servers and JBODs according to the hardware documentation.

  2. Power up existing JBODs first. Depending on the Genesis RX (GRX) revision, connecting the power cables might be enough. On other generations, the power button in the front must be pressed. Please check with your HW documentation.

  3. Power up the GRX. O

  4. After a few minutes, an attached monitor will show a “genesis login:” prompt when the system has been fully booted.

  5. A SANinabox system has two IP address. One for the RAID engine and disk management (via HTTP port 80) and a second for HyperFS management at port 82.

  6. Navigate to the Web UI ( http://your-ip/ ) and check if the system is ready for use. If the GRX will display the message ”The system is temporary unavailable” for long time, contact Scale Logic support team.

  7. A virtual machine with the HyperFS MDC server will start automatically which will take some time to fully boot up. 

  8. Wait for about 5 minutes and navigate to the HyperFS management Web-UI (port 82) and verify if a file system is running.

  9. If you have Scale Out NAS gateway, go to the SONG section on your management interface and check SONG cluster or single node status. Run a file system if it’s necessary.

  10. Connect all clients back.


Power Down:

  1. Unmount all HyperFS SAN and NAS clients.

  2. Navigate to the HyperFS management Web-UI (port 82) and stop a file system.

  3. Go to the Web-UI RAIDs management (port 80), move to the [SYSTEMS] menu and stay on the Nodes page.

  1. Select the action you want to perform in the Power control column. Available options are Reboot or Power Off a node. Confirm your action in the Pop-Up window. 

  2. The system will send ACPI command top power down a virtual machine with a HyperFS MDC and the Genesis RX server as well.
