When the system maintenance switch position 6 is set to the On position, the system is prepared to erase
all system configuration settings from both CMOS and NVRAM.
CAUTION: Clearing CMOS and/or NVRAM deletes configuration information. Be sure to properly
configure the server or data loss could occur.
NMI switch
The NMI switch allows administrators to perform a memory dump before performing a hard reset. Crash
dump analysis is an essential part of eliminating reliability problems, such as hangs or crashes in
operating systems, device drivers, and applications. Many crashes freeze a system, requiring you to do a
hard reset. Resetting the system erases any information that would support root cause analysis.
Systems running Microsoft® Windows® operating systems experience a blue screen trap when the
operating system crashes. When this happens, Microsoft® recommends that system administrators
perform an NMI event by pressing a dump switch. The NMI event enables a hung system to become
responsive again.
Chassis ID switch
The chassis ID switch on the system board is reserved for use by authorized technicians only. Do not
modify the switch setting.

System LEDs and internal health LED combinations
When the internal health LED on the front panel illuminates either amber or red, the server is experiencing
a health event. Combinations of illuminated system LEDs and the internal health LED indicate system
status.
Component identification 16
The front panel health LEDs indicate only the current hardware status. In some situations, HP SIM may
report server status differently than the health LEDs because the software tracks more system attributes.

Rack planning resources
The rack resource kit ships with all HP branded or Compaq branded 9000, 10000, and H9 series racks.
For more information on the content of each resource, refer to the rack resource kit documentation.
If you intend to deploy and configure multiple servers in a single rack, refer to the white paper on highdensity deployment at the HP website (http://www.hp.com/products/servers/platforms).
Optimum environment
When installing the server in a rack, select a location that meets the environmental standards described in
this section.
Space and airflow requirements
To allow for servicing and adequate airflow, observe the following space and airflow requirements when
deciding where to install a rack:
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 63.5 cm (25 in) in front of the rack.
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 76.2 cm (30 in) behind the rack.
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 121.9 cm (48 in) from the back of the rack to the back of another
rack or row of racks.
HP servers draw in cool air through the front door and expel warm air through the rear door. Therefore,
the front and rear rack doors must be adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the
cabinet, and the rear door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape from the
cabinet.
CAUTION: To prevent improper cooling and damage to the equipment, do not block the ventilation
openings.
When vertical space in the rack is not filled by a server or rack component, the gaps between the
components cause changes in airflow through the rack and across the servers. Cover all gaps with
blanking panels to maintain proper airflow.
CAUTION: Always use blanking panels to fill empty vertical spaces in the rack. This arrangement ensures
proper airflow. Using a rack without blanking panels results in improper cooling that can lead to thermal
damage.
The 9000 and 10000 Series Racks provide proper server cooling from flow-through perforations in the
front and rear doors that provide 64 percent open area for ventilation.
CAUTION: When using a Compaq branded 7000 Series rack, you must install the high airflow rack door
insert [P/N 327281-B21 (42U) or P/N 157847-B21 (22U)] to provide proper front-to-back airflow and
cooling.
CAUTION: If a third-party rack is used, observe the following additional requirements to ensure adequate
airflow and to prevent damage to the equipment:
• Front and rear doors—If the 42U rack includes closing front and rear doors, you must allow 5,350 sq
cm (830 sq in) of holes evenly distributed from top to bottom to permit adequate airflow (equivalent to
the required 64 percent open area for ventilation).
• Side—The clearance between the installed rack component and the side panels of the rack must be a
minimum of 7 cm (2.75 in).
Setup 32
Temperature requirements
To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the system in a wellventilated, climate-controlled environment.
The maximum recommended ambient operating temperature (TMRA) for most server products is 35°C
(95°F). The temperature in the room where the rack is located must not exceed 35°C (95°F).
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third-party options:
• Do not permit optional equipment to impede airflow around the server or to increase the internal rack
temperature beyond the maximum allowable limits.
• Do not exceed the manufacturer’s TMRA.
Power requirements
Installation of this equipment must comply with local and regional electrical regulations governing the
installation of information technology equipment by licensed electricians. This equipment is designed to
operate in installations covered by NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code) and NFPA-75, 1992
(code for Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing Equipment). For electrical power ratings on
options, refer to the product rating label or the user documentation supplied with that option.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, fire, or damage to the equipment, do
not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. Consult the
electrical authority having jurisdiction over wiring and installation requirements of your
facility.
CAUTION: Protect the server from power fluctuations and temporary interruptions with a regulating
uninterruptible power supply (UPS). This device protects the hardware from damage caused by power
surges and voltage spikes and keeps the system in operation during a power failure.
When installing more than one server, you may need to use additional power distribution devices to
safely provide power to all devices. Observe the following guidelines:
•
Balance the server power load between available AC supply branch circuits.
•
Do not allow the overall system AC current load to exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit AC
current rating.
•
Do not use common power outlet strips for this equipment.
•
Provide a separate electrical circuit for the server.
Electrical grounding requirements
The server must be grounded properly for proper operation and safety. In the United States, you must
install the equipment in accordance with NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code), Article 250,
as well as any local and regional building codes. In Canada, you must install the equipment in
accordance with Canadian Standards Association, CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code. In all other
countries, you must install the equipment in accordance with any regional or national electrical wiring
codes, such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Code 364, parts 1 through 7.
Furthermore, you must be sure that all power distribution devices used in the installation, such as branch
wiring and receptacles, are listed or certified grounding-type devices.
Because of the high ground-leakage currents associated with multiple servers connected to the same
power source, HP recommends the use of a PDU that is either permanently wired to the building’s branch
circuit or includes a nondetachable cord that is wired to an industrial-style plug. NEMA locking-style plugs
or those complying with IEC 60309 are considered suitable for this purpose. Using common power outlet
strips for the server is not recommended.
Setup 33
Rack warnings
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, be sure
that:
• The leveling jacks are extended to the floor.
• The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.
• The stabilizing feet are attached to the rack if it is a single-rack installation.
• The racks are coupled together in multiple-rack installations.
• Only one component is extended at a time. A rack may become unstable if more than
one component is extended for any reason.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or equipment damage when unloading
a rack:
• At least two people are needed to safely unload the rack from the pallet. An empty
42U rack can weigh as much as 115 kg (253 lb), can stand more than 2.1 m (7 ft)
tall, and may become unstable when being moved on its casters.
• Never stand in front of the rack when it is rolling down the ramp from the pallet.
Always handle the rack from both sides.

Introduction
If more than one option is being installed, read the installation instructions for all the hardware options
and identify similar steps to streamline the installation process.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the drives and
the internal system components to cool before touching them.
CAUTION: To prevent damage to electrical components, properly ground the server before beginning any
installation procedure. Improper grounding can cause electrostatic discharge.
Processor option
The server supports single- and dual-processor operation. With two processors installed, the server
supports boot functions through the processor installed in processor socket 1. However, if processor 1
fails, the system will attempt to boot from processor 2 and provide a processor failure message.
The server uses PPMs to provide power to each processor. The corresponding PPM must be installed for
each processor or the system cannot boot.
CAUTION: To prevent thermal instability and damage to the server, do not separate the processor from the
heatsink. The processor, heatsink, and retaining clip make up a single assembly.
CAUTION: To prevent possible server malfunction and damage to the equipment, do not mix single- and
dual-core processors or processors with different speeds or cache sizes.
IMPORTANT: If upgrading processor speed, update the system ROM before installing the processor.
IMPORTANT: Processor socket 1 and PPM slot 1 must be populated at all times or the server does not
function properly.
Hardware options installation

Memory options
You can expand server memory by installing PC2-3200 Registered DDR-2 SDRAM DIMMs. The server
supports up to six DIMMs.
PC2-3200 DIMMs can either be single-rank or dual-rank. While it is not normally important for you to
differentiate between these two types of DIMMs, certain DIMM configuration requirements are based on
these classifications. Certain configuration requirements exist with single-rank and dual-rank DIMMs that
allow the architecture to optimize performance. A dual-rank DIMM is similar to having two separate
DIMMs on the same module. Although only a single DIMM module, a dual-rank DIMM acts as if it were
two separate DIMMs. The primary reason for the existence of dual-rank DIMMs is to provide the largest
capacity DIMM given the current DIMM technology. If the maximum DIMM technology allows for creating
2-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM using the same technology would be 4-GB. Understanding
the existence of single-rank and dual-rank DIMMs is all that is necessary for understanding the memory
population guidelines of this server.
NOTE: The Advanced Memory Protection option in RBSU provides additional memory protection beyond
Advanced ECC. By default, the server is set to Advanced ECC Support. Refer to "ROM-Based Setup
Utility ("HP ROM-Based Setup Utility" on page 80)," on the Documentation CD, for more information.
The server supports two types of memory configurations with single-rank memory DIMMs:
•
Standard memory configuration for maximum performance with up to 12 GB of active memory (six
2-GB single rank memory modules)
•
Online spare memory configuration for maximum availability with up to 8 GB of active memory and
4 GB of online spare memory
Hardware options installation
41
The server only supports Advanced ECC with dual-rank DIMMs installed. Online Spare is not supported
by dual-rank DIMMs. Early DL380G4 ROMs do not support dual-rank DIMMs. Be sure you upgrade your
ROM before installing dual-rank DIMMs.
•
Standard memory configuration for maximum performance with up to 8 GB of active memory (four
2-GB dual-rank memory DIMMs)
For more information on single-rank and dual-rank DIMM configurations, see "DIMM Configuration
Requirements (on page 42)."
DIMM configuration requirements
The following configuration requirements apply to single-rank and dual-rank DIMMs:
•
Install only PC2-3200 Registered DDR-2 SDRAM DIMMs, 1.8 volts, 72 bits wide, and ECC.
•
DIMMs must be installed in pairs.
•
DIMM pairs in a memory bank must have the same HP part numbers.
•
Always populate the DIMMs in sequential order per bank: Bank A, Bank B, and then Bank C.
•
Dual-rank DIMMs must be populated before single-rank DIMMs (see table below).
•
If dual-rank DIMMs are installed in Bank A and Bank B, no additional DIMMs may be installed in
Bank C (see table below).
•
The following table lists all seven (7) valid combinations of single-rank and dual-rank DIMM
configurations. "Single" indicates a bank of single-rank DIMMs. "Dual" indicates a bank of dual-rank
DIMMs. An invalid configuration will result in all DIMM failure LEDs lit and the system will hang. If
dual-rank DIMMs are installed, online spare memory is not supported. Note that a bank contains 2
DIMMs.

The memory configurations, including Advanced ECC or Online Spare, can be configured in RBSU.
RBSU displays a warning message if the selected AMP mode is not supported by the current
configuration. However, if the DIMM configuration at POST does not meet the requirements for the
AMP mode selected in RBSU, the server defaults to Advanced ECC. The system indicates this by
displaying a message during POST.
•
If your server contains more than 4 GB of memory, consult your operating system documentation
about accessing the full amount of installed memory.
Online spare memory configuration
In the online spare configuration, the ROM automatically configures the last populated bank as the spare
memory. If only banks A and B are populated, bank B is the spare bank. If banks A, B, and C are
populated, bank C is the spare bank. If DIMMs in a non-spare bank exceed the limit for the single-bit
Hardware options installation
42
correctable errors threshold as defined by the Pre-Failure Warranty, the system copies the memory
contents of the failing bank to the spare bank. The system then deactivates the failing bank and
automatically switches over to the spare bank.
For online spare memory support, you must observe the following guidelines:
•
Dual-rank DIMMs can not be installed in any DIMM socket with online spare memory enabled.
•
The ROM must be up to date.
•
DIMMs installed in a spare bank must be of equal or greater capacity than the DIMMs installed in
other banks.
For example, if bank A is populated with two 256-MB DIMMs and bank B is populated with two
512-MB DIMMs, bank C must be populated with two 512-MB or greater DIMMs in order for online
spare memory support to function properly.
After installing DIMMs, use RBSU to configure the system for online spare memory support ("Configuring
online spare memory" on page 81).
Installing DIMMs
1.
Power down the server (on page 27).
2.
Extend the server from the rack, if applicable ("Extend the server from the rack" on page 28).
3.
Remove the access panel ("Removing the access panel" on page 29).
4.
Open the DIMM slot latches.
5.
Install the DIMM.
6.
Install the access panel ("Installing the access panel" on page 29).

If you are installing DIMMs in an online spare configuration, use RBSU to configure this feature
("Configuring online spare memory" on page 81).
Hot-plug SCSI hard drive options
When adding SCSI hard drives to the server, observe the following general guidelines:
•
A maximum of 14 SCSI devices per channel can be added.
•
Each SCSI drive must have a unique ID. The system automatically sets all SCSI IDs.
Hardware options installation
43
•
The SCSI ID for each hot-plug hard drive is set automatically to the next sequential ID number in a
series beginning with ID0.
•
If only one SCSI hard drive is used, install it in the bay with the lowest number.
•
Hot-plug hard drives must be either Wide Ultra2, Ultra3, or Ultra320 SCSI types. Mixing these types
with other drive standards degrades the overall performance of the drive subsystem.
•
Drives must be the same capacity to provide the greatest storage space efficiency when drives are
grouped together into the same drive array.
SCSI IDs
The server supports single- or dual-channel hard drive configurations. The single-channel configuration
(simplex) supports up to six hard drives on one channel. The dual-channel configuration (duplex) supports
two hard drives on one channel (SCSI IDs 0 and 1) and up to four hard drives on the other channel (SCSI
IDs 2 through 5).
The SCSI IDs for both simplex and duplex configurations are illustrated. Always populate hard drive bays
starting with the lowest SCSI ID.

Redundant hot-plug fans
NOTE: This procedure shows images of the SCSI model server, but it also applies to the SAS model server.
In the standard configuration, five fans cool the server: fans 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7.
For the redundant configuration, fans 1, 3, and 8 are added to cool the server. This allows the server to
continue operation in non-redundant mode if any one fan fails.
The server supports variable fan speeds to allow the speed of all fans to increase if the temperature in any
area increases. The fans will run at minimum speed until a temperature change requires a fan speed
increase to cool the server.
The server shuts down in the following scenarios:
•
At POST:
Hardware options installation
50
•
The BIOS suspends the server for 5 minutes if it detects a cautionary temperature level. If the
cautionary temperature level is still detected after 5 minutes, the BIOS performs an orderly
shutdown and then restarts. This process repeats until the cautionary temperature level is no
longer detected.
•
The BIOS performs an orderly shutdown if the following minimum requirements are not met: a
minimum of five fans in the standard configuration or seven fans in the redundant configuration.
•
The server performs an immediate shutdown if it detects a critical temperature level.
IMPORTANT: An immediate shutdown is a hardware-controlled function and it overrides any firmware or
software actions.
•
In the operating system:
•
With the Health Driver loaded and Thermal Shutdown enabled in RBSU, the Health Driver
performs an orderly shutdown if it detects a cautionary temperature level. If the server detects a
critical temperature level before the orderly shutdown occurs, the server performs an immediate
shutdown. Additionally, the Health Driver performs an orderly shutdown if the following minimum
requirements are not met: a minimum of five fans in the standard configuration or seven fans in
the redundant configuration.
•
With the Health Driver loaded and Thermal Shutdown disabled in RBSU, the server performs an
immediate shutdown if it detects a critical temperature level.
•
Without the Health Driver loaded, the server performs an immediate shutdown if it detects a
critical temperature level.
IMPORTANT: An immediate shutdown is a hardware-controlled function and it overrides any firmware or
software actions.

Battery-backed write cache option
NOTE: This feature applies only to SCSI models.
Along with the cache module, the battery pack provides transportable data protection, increases overall
controller performance, and maintains any cached data for up to 72 hours. The NiMH batteries in the
battery pack are continuously recharged through a trickle-charging process whenever the system power is
on.
For information on BBWC LEDs, refer to "Battery-backed write cache LEDs (on page 25)" and "Batterybacked write cache LED statuses (on page 26)."
CAUTION: To prevent a server malfunction or damage to the equipment, do not add or remove the battery
pack while an array capacity expansion, RAID level migration, or stripe size migration is in progress.
CAUTION: After the server is powered down, wait 15 seconds and then check the amber LED before
unplugging the cable from the cache module. If the amber LED blinks after 15 seconds, do not remove the
cable from the cache module. The cache module is backing up data, and data is lost if the cable is
detached.
IMPORTANT: The battery pack might have a low charge when installed. In this case, a POST error
message is displayed when the server is powered up, indicating that the battery pack is temporarily
disabled. No action is necessary on your part. The internal circuitry automatically recharges the batteries
and enables the battery pack. This process might take up to four hours. During this time, the cache module
functions properly, but without the performance advantage of the battery pack.
NOTE: The data protection and the time limit also apply if a power outage occurs. When power is restored
to the system, an initialization process writes the preserved data to the hard drives.

Management tools
Automatic Server Recovery
ASR is a feature that causes the system to restart when a catastrophic operating system error occurs, such
as a blue screen, ABEND, or panic. A system fail-safe timer, the ASR timer, starts when the System
Management driver, also known as the Health Driver, is loaded. When the operating system is
functioning properly, the system periodically resets the timer. However, when the operating system fails,
the timer expires and restarts the server.
ASR increases server availability by restarting the server within a specified time after a system hang or
shutdown. At the same time, the HP SIM console notifies you by sending a message to a designated
pager number that ASR has restarted the system. You can disable ASR from the HP SIM console or
through RBSU.
ROMPaq utility
Flash ROM enables you to upgrade the firmware (BIOS) with system or option ROMPaq utilities. To
upgrade the BIOS, insert a ROMPaq diskette into the diskette drive and boot the system.
The ROMPaq utility checks the system and provides a choice (if more than one exists) of available ROM
revisions. This procedure is the same for both system and option ROMPaq utilities.
For more information about the ROMPaq utility, refer to the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/servers/manage).

SCSI hard drives, and memory modules.
For additional information, refer to the Management CD in the HP ProLiant Essentials Foundation Pack or
the HP SIM website (http://www.hp.com/go/hpsim).
Redundant ROM support
The server enables you to upgrade or configure the ROM safely with redundant ROM support. The server
has a 4-MB ROM that acts as two, separate 2-MB ROMs. In the standard implementation, one side of the
ROM contains the current ROM program version, while the other side of the ROM contains a backup
version.
Software and configuration utilities 84
NOTE: The server ships with the same version programmed on each side of the ROM.
Safety and security benefits
When you flash the system ROM, ROMPaq writes over the backup ROM and saves the current ROM as a
backup, enabling you to switch easily to the alternate ROM version if the new ROM becomes corrupted
for any reason. This feature protects the existing ROM version, even if you experience a power failure
while flashing the ROM.
Access to redundant ROM settings
To access the redundant ROM through RBSU:
1.
Access RBSU by pressing the F9 key during powerup when the prompt is displayed in the upper
right corner of the screen.

Press the Enter key.
6.
Press the Esc key to exit the current menu or press the F10 key to exit RBSU. The server restarts
automatically.
To access the redundant ROM manually:
1.
Power down the server (on page 27).
2.
Remove the access panel ("Removing the access panel" on page 29).
3.
Set positions 1, 5, and 6 of the system maintenance switch to On.
4.
Install the access panel ("Installing the access panel" on page 29).
5.
Power up the server (on page 27).

Repeat steps 4 and 5.
When the server boots, the system identifies whether the current ROM bank is corrupt. If a corrupt ROM is
detected, the system boots from the backup ROM and alerts you through POST or IML that the ROM bank
is corrupt.
If both the current and backup versions of the ROM are corrupt, the server automatically enters ROMPaq
disaster recovery mode.

Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic discharge .............................................................................. 111
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the
system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage
system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords.
To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet
when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller
install the part.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.
