properly configure the server or data loss could occur.
NMI functionality
An NMI crash dump enables administrators to create crash dump files when a system is hung and not
responding to traditional debug mechanisms.
Crash dump log analysis is an essential part of diagnosing reliability problems, such as hangs in operating
systems, device drivers, and applications. Many crashes freeze a system, and the only available action for
administrators is to cycle the system power. Resetting the system erases any information that could support
Component identification 15
problem analysis, but the NMI feature preserves that information by performing a memory dump before a
hard reset.
To force the OS to invoke the NMI handler and generate a crash dump log, the administrator can do any of
the following:
•
Short the NMI jumper pins
•
Press the NMI switch
•
Use the iLO Virtual NMI feature
For additional information, see the whitepaper on the HP website
(http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00797875/c00797875.pdf).

The system is powered down, and the cache contains data that has not
yet been written to the drives. Restore system power as soon as
possible to prevent data loss.
Data preservation time is extended any time that 3.3 V auxiliary
power is available, as indicated by LED 2. In the absence of auxiliary
power, battery power alone preserves the data. A fully-charged
battery can normally preserve data for at least two days.
The battery lifetime also depends on the cache module size. For further
information, refer to the controller QuickSpecs on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com).

Component identification 22
For a single-processor configuration, four fans and two blanks are required in specific fan bays for
redundancy. A fan failure or missing fan causes all fans to spin at high speed. A second fan failure or missing
fan causes an orderly shutdown of the server.
Installing more than the required number of fans in a single-processor configuration is not a supported
configuration.
For a dual-processor configuration, six fans are required for redundancy. A fan failure or missing fan causes
all fans to spin at high speed. A second fan failure or missing fan causes an orderly shutdown of the server.
The server supports variable fan speeds. The fans operate at minimum speed until a temperature change
requires a fan speed increase to cool the server. The server shuts down during the following
temperature-related scenarios:
•
At POST and in the OS, iLO 3 performs an orderly shutdown if a cautionary temperature level is
detected. If the server hardware detects a critical temperature level before an orderly shutdown occurs,
the server performs an immediate shutdown.
•
When the Thermal Shutdown feature is disabled in RBSU, iLO 3 does not perform an orderly shutdown
when a cautionary temperature level is detected. Disabling this feature does not disable the server
hardware from performing an immediate shutdown when a critical temperature level is detected.
CAUTION: A thermal event can damage server components when the Thermal Shutdown feature
is disabled in RBSU.
Component identification 23
Operations
Power up the server
To power up the server, press the Power On/Standby button.
Power down the server
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, electric shock, or damage to the equipment,
remove the power cord to remove power from the server. The front panel Power On/Standby

deployment at the HP website (http://www.hp.com/products/servers/platforms).
Setup
32
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).
IMPORTANT: The HP ProLiant DL388 G7 Server cable management arm is not supported on
Compaq branded 7000 series racks.
Setup
33
Temperature requirements
To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the system in a well-ventilated,
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.
Setup
34
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.
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.

Memory options
IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to mix
these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
The memory subsystem in this server can support RDIMMs or UDIMMs. Both types are referred to as DIMMs
when the information applies to both types. When specified as RDIMM or UDIMM, the information applies
to that type only. All memory installed in the server must be the same type.
The server supports the following DIMM speeds:
•
Single- and dual-rank PC3-10600 (DDR-1333) DIMMs operating at 1333 and 1066 MHz
•
Quad-rank PC3-8500 (DDR-1067) DIMMs operating at 1066 MHz
Depending on the processor model, the number of DIMMs installed, and whether UDIMMs or RDIMMs are
installed, the memory clock speed may be reduced to 1066 or 800 MHz. For more information on the effect
of DIMM slot population, see "General DIMM slot population guidelines (on page 49)."
Memory subsystem architecture
The memory subsystem in this server is divided into channels. Each processor supports three channels, and
each channel supports three DIMM slots, as shown in the following table.

This multi-channel architecture provides enhanced performance in Advanced ECC mode. This architecture
also enables the Lockstep, Online Spare, and Mirrored Memory modes. This server supports both Registered
PC3 DIMMs (RDIMMs) and Unbuffered DIMMs (UDIMMs).
DIMM slots in this server are identified by number and by letter. Letters identify the slots to populate for
specific AMP modes. Slot numbers are reported by ROM messages during boot and for error reporting.
Single-, dual-, and quad-rank DIMMs
To understand and configure memory protection modes properly, an understanding of single-, dual-, and
quad-rank DIMMs is helpful. Some DIMM configuration requirements are based on these classifications.
A single-rank DIMM has one set of memory chips that is accessed while writing to or reading from the
memory. A dual-rank DIMM is similar to having two single-rank DIMMs on the same module, with only one
rank accessible at a time. A quad-rank DIMM is, effectively, two dual-rank DIMMs on the same module. Only
one rank is accessible at a time. The server memory control subsystem selects the proper rank within the
DIMM when writing to or reading from the DIMM.
Hardware options installation
46
Dual- and quad-rank DIMMs provide the greatest capacity with the existing memory technology. For
example, if current DRAM technology supports 2-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM would be 4-GB,
and a quad-rank DIMM would be 8-GB.

Memory configurations
To optimize server availability, the server supports the following AMP modes:
•
Advanced ECC—provides the greatest memory capacity for a given DIMM size, while providing up to
4-bit error correction. This mode is the default option for this server.
Hardware options installation
47
•
Lockstep—provides enhanced protection over Advanced ECC mode while continuing to make all
installed memory available to the operating system. The server can continue to function if a single- or
mulit-bit memory failure within a single DRAM device occurs.
•
Online spare memory—provides protection against failing or degraded DIMMs. Certain memory is
reserved as spare, and automatic failover to spare memory occurs when the system detects a DIMM that
is degrading and receiving a high rate of correctable memory errors. This allows DIMMs that have a
higher probability of receiving an uncorrectable memory error (which would result in system downtime)
to be removed from operation.
•
Mirrored Memory—provides maximum protection against failed DIMMs. Uncorrectable errors in one
channel are corrected by the mirror channel.
Advanced Memory Protection options are configured in RBSU. If the requested AMP mode is not supported
by the installed DIMM configuration, the server boots in Advanced ECC mode. For more information, see
"HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (on page 72)."
For the latest memory configuration information, see the QuickSpecs on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com).

UDIMM maximum memory configurations
The server supports a maximum of 12 GB with one processor and 24 GB with two processors using 2-GB
single- or dual-rank UDIMMs.
Advanced ECC memory configuration
Advanced ECC memory is the default memory protection mode for this server. Standard ECC can correct
single-bit memory errors and detect multi-bit memory errors. When multi-bit errors are detected using
Standard ECC, the error is signaled to the server and causes the server to halt.
Advanced ECC protects the server against some multi-bit memory errors. Advanced ECC can correct both
single-bit memory errors and 4-bit memory errors if all failed bits are on the same DRAM device on the DIMM.
Advanced ECC provides additional protection over Standard ECC because it is possible to correct certain
memory errors that would otherwise be uncorrected and result in a server failure. The server provides
notification that correctable error events have exceeded a pre-defined threshold rate.
Lockstep memory configuration
Lockstep mode provides protection against multi-bit memory errors that occur on the same DRAM device.
Lockstep mode can correct any single DRAM device failure on x4 and x8 DIMM types. The DIMMs in each
channel must have identical HP part numbers.
Hardware options installation
48
Lockstep mode uses channel 1 and channel 2. Channel 3 is not populated. Because channel 3 cannot be
populated when using Lockstep mode, the maximum memory capacity is lower than Advanced ECC mode.
Memory performance with Advanced ECC is also slightly higher.
Online Spare memory configuration
Online spare memory provides protection against degraded DIMMs by reducing the likelihood of
uncorrected memory errors. This protection is available without any operating system support.
Online spare memory protection dedicates one rank of each memory channel for use as spare memory. The
remaining ranks are available for OS and application use. If correctable memory errors occur at a rate
higher than a specific threshold on any of the non-spare ranks, the server automatically copies the memory
contents of the degraded rank to the online spare rank. The server then deactivates the failing rank and
automatically switches over to the online spare rank.
Mirrored memory configuration
Mirroring provides protection against uncorrected memory errors that would otherwise result in server
downtime. Mirroring is performed at the channel level. Channels 1 and 2 are used; channel 3 is not
populated.
Data is written to both memory channels. Data is read from one of the two memory channels. If an
uncorrectable error is detected in the active memory channel, data is retrieved from the mirror channel. This
channel becomes the new active channel, and the system disables the channel with the failed DIMM.
General DIMM slot population guidelines
Observe the following guidelines for all AMP modes:
•
Populate DIMM slots for a processor only if the processor is installed.
•
To maximize performance in multi-processor configurations, distribute the total memory capacity
between all processors as evenly as possible.
•
Do not mix Unbuffered and Registered PC3 DIMMs.
•
Each channel supports up to two Unbuffered DIMMs.
•
If quad-rank DIMMs are installed for a processor, a maximum of two DIMMs can be installed on each
channel for that processor.
•
If a channel contains quad-rank DIMMs, the quad-rank DIMM must be installed first on that channel.
DIMM speeds are supported as indicated in the following table.

Configuration and utilities
Configuration tools
SmartStart software
SmartStart is a collection of software that optimizes single-server setup, providing a simple and consistent
way to deploy server configuration. SmartStart has been tested on many ProLiant server products, resulting
in proven, reliable configurations.
SmartStart assists the deployment process by performing a wide range of configuration activities, including:
•
Preparing the system for installing "off-the-shelf" versions of leading operating system software
•
Installing optimized server drivers, management agents, and utilities automatically with every assisted
installation
•
Testing server hardware using the Insight Diagnostics Utility ("HP Insight Diagnostics" on page 79)
•
Installing software drivers directly from the CD. With systems that have Internet connection, the
SmartStart Autorun Menu provides access to a complete list of ProLiant system software.
•
Enabling access to the Array Configuration Utility (on page 75) and Erase Utility (on page 77)
SmartStart is included in the HP Insight Foundation suite for ProLiant. For more information about SmartStart
software, see the HP Insight Foundation suite for ProLiant or the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/go/foundation).
SmartStart Scripting Toolkit
The SmartStart Scripting Toolkit is a server deployment product that allows you to build an unattended
automated installation for high-volume server deployments. The SmartStart Scripting Toolkit is designed to
support ProLiant BL, ML, DL, and SL servers. The toolkit includes a modular set of utilities and important
documentation that describes how to apply these tools to build an automated server deployment process.
The Scripting Toolkit provides a flexible way to create standard server configuration scripts. These scripts are
used to automate many of the manual steps in the server configuration process. This automated server
configuration process cuts time from each deployment, making it possible to scale rapid, high-volume server
deployments.
For more information, and to download the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit, see the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/servers/sstoolkit).
Configuration Replication Utility
CONREP is shipped in the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit and is a program that works with RBSU to replicate
hardware configuration on ProLiant servers. This utility is run during State 0, Run Hardware Configuration
Utility, when doing a scripted server deployment. CONREP reads the state of the system environment
variables to determine the configuration and then writes the results to an editable script file. This file can then
be deployed across multiple servers with similar hardware and software components. For more information,
Configuration and utilities 71
refer to the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit User Guide on the HP website
(http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/toolkit/documentation.html).
HP ROM-Based Setup Utility
RBSU is a configuration utility embedded in ProLiant servers that performs a wide range of configuration
activities that can include the following:
•
Configuring system devices and installed options
•
Enabling and disabling system features
•
Displaying system information
•
Selecting the primary boot controller
•
Configuring memory options
•
Language selection
For more information on RBSU, see the HP ROM-Based Setup Utility User Guide on the Documentation CD or
the HP website (http://www.hp.com/support/smartstart/documentation).
Using RBSU
To use RBSU, use the following keys:
•
To access RBSU, press the F9 key during power-up when prompted.
•
To navigate the menu system, use the arrow keys.
•
To make selections, press the Enter key.
•
To access Help for a highlighted configuration option, press the F1 key.
IMPORTANT: RBSU automatically saves settings when you press the Enter key. The utility does
not prompt you for confirmation of settings before you exit the utility. To change a selected setting,
you must select a different setting and press the Enter key.
Default configuration settings are applied to the server at one of the following times:
•
Upon the first system power-up
•
After defaults have been restored
Default configuration settings are sufficient for proper typical server operation, but configuration settings can
be modified using RBSU. The system will prompt you for access to RBSU with each power-up.
Auto-configuration process
The auto-configuration process automatically runs when you boot the server for the first time. During the
power-up sequence, the system ROM automatically configures the entire system without needing any
intervention. During this process, the ORCA utility, in most cases, automatically configures the array to a
default setting based on the number of drives connected to the server.
NOTE: The server may not support all the following examples.
Configuration and utilities 72
NOTE: If the boot drive is not empty or has been written to in the past, ORCA does not
automatically configure the array. You must run ORCA to configure the array settings.

does not require a keyboard and mouse.
For more information about BIOS Serial Console, see the BIOS Serial Console User Guide on the
Documentation CD or the HP website (http://www.hp.com/support/smartstart/documentation).
Configuring AMP modes
Not all ProLiant servers support all AMP modes. RBSU provides menu options only for the modes supported
by the server. Advanced memory protection within RBSU enables the following advanced memory.
•
Advanced ECC Mode—Provides memory protection beyond Standard ECC. All single-bit failures and
some multi-bit failures can be corrected without resulting in system downtime.
•
Online Spare Mode—Provides protection against failing or degraded DIMMs. Certain memory is set
aside as spare, and automatic failover to spare memory occurs when the system detects a degraded
DIMM. DIMMs that are likely to receive a fatal/uncorrectable memory error are removed from
operation automatically, resulting in less system downtime.
See the server-specific user guide for DIMM population requirements.
•
Mirrored Memory Mode—Provides protection against uncorrectable memory errors that would
otherwise result in system failure. In this mode, the system maintains two copies of all data. If an
Configuration and utilities 73
uncorrectable memory error occurs, the system automatically retrieves the good data from the mirrored
copy. The system continues to operate normally without any user intervention. If the system supports
hot-plug memory, the failed memory can be replaced while the system continues to operate.
•
RAID Memory Mode—Provides protection levels similar to Mirrored Memory Mode, and it requires less
memory allocation than full redundancy.

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.
Configuration and utilities 76
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.

Erase Utility
Configuration and utilities 77
CAUTION: Perform a backup before running the System Erase Utility. The utility sets the system
to its original factory state, deletes the current hardware configuration information, including
array setup and disk partitioning, and erases all connected hard drives completely. Refer to the
instructions for using this utility.
Run the Erase Utility if you must erase the system for the following reasons:
•
You want to install a new operating system on a server with an existing operating system.
•
You encounter an error when completing the steps of a factory-installed operating system installation.
To access the Erase Utility, use the System Erase button on the home screen of the SmartStart CD ("SmartStart
software" on page 71).
Redundant ROM support
The server enables you to upgrade or configure the ROM safely with redundant ROM support. The server has
a single ROM that acts as two separate ROM images. 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.
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.
USB support and functionality
USB support
HP provides both standard USB 2.0 support and legacy USB 2.0 support. Standard support is provided by

Performing processor procedures in the troubleshooting process
Before performing any troubleshooting steps that involve processors, review the following guidelines:
•
Be sure that only authorized personnel perform the troubleshooting steps that involve installing,
removing, or replacing a processor.
•
Always locate the documentation for your processor model before performing any steps that require
installing, removing, or replacing a processor. If you cannot locate the hard copy of the instructions that
shipped with the processor, see the processor ("Processor option" on page 39) instructions in this
document.
•
Some processor models require the use of a processor installation tool, and specific steps are
documented to ensure that you do not damage the processor or processor socket on the system board.
For server models that have pins inside the processor socket, remember that THE PINS ON THE SYSTEM
BOARD ARE VERY FRAGILE AND EASILY DAMAGED. If you damage the socket, you must replace the
system board.
•
Depending on the server model, the contacts may be on the processor or they may be inside the
processor socket. Never touch the contacts. THE PINS ON THE SYSTEM BOARD ARE VERY FRAGILE AND
EASILY DAMAGED. If the contacts inside the processor socket are damaged, the system board must be
replaced.
•
Always complete all other troubleshooting procedures before removing or replacing a processor.
Breaking the server down to the minimum hardware configuration
During the troubleshooting process, you may be asked to break the server down to the minimum hardware
configuration. A minimum configuration consists of only the components needed to boot the server and
successfully pass POST.
When requested to break the server down to the minimum configuration, uninstall the following components,
if installed:
•
All additional DIMMs
Leave only the minimum required to boot the server—either one DIMM or a pair of DIMMs. For more
information, see the memory guidelines in the server user guide.
•
All additional cooling fans, if applicable
For the minimum fan configuration, see the server user guide.
•
All additional power supplies, if applicable (leave one installed)
•

Electrostatic discharge
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.

Customer Self Repair
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow for
greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period HP (or HP service
providers or service partners) identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will
ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts:
•
Mandatory—Parts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts,
you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service.
Technical support
113
•
Optional—Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for customer
self repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, there may or may not be additional
charges, depending on the type of warranty service designated for your product.
NOTE: Some HP parts are not designed for customer self repair. In order to satisfy the customer warranty,
HP requires that an authorized service provider replace the part. These parts are identified as "No" in the
Illustrated Parts Catalog.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography permits.
If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help you over the
telephone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a defective part must
be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you must ship the defective
part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days. The defective part must be
returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective
part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping
and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used.
For more information about HP's Customer Self Repair program, contact your local service provider. For the
North American program, refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Réparation par le client (CSR)
Les produits HP comportent de nombreuses pièces CSR (Customer Self Repair = réparation par le client) afin
de minimiser les délais de réparation et faciliter le remplacement des pièces défectueuses. Si pendant la
période de diagnostic, HP (ou ses partenaires ou mainteneurs agréés) détermine que la réparation peut être
effectuée à l'aide d'une pièce CSR, HP vous l'envoie directement. Il existe deux catégories de pièces CSR:
Obligatoire - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est obligatoire. Si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, les coûts de déplacement et main d'œuvre du service vous seront facturés.
Facultatif - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est facultative. Ces pièces sont également
conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la réparation. Toutefois, si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, l'intervention peut ou non vous être facturée, selon le type de garantie applicable à
votre produit.
REMARQUE: Certaines pièces HP ne sont pas conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la
réparation. Pour que la garantie puisse s'appliquer, HP exige que le remplacement de la pièce soit effectué
par un Mainteneur Agréé. Ces pièces sont identifiées par la mention "Non" dans le Catalogue illustré.
Les pièces CSR sont livrées le jour ouvré suivant, dans la limite des stocks disponibles et selon votre situation
géographique. Si votre situation géographique le permet et que vous demandez une livraison le jour même
ou dans les 4 heures, celle-ci vous sera facturée. Pour bénéficier d'une assistance téléphonique, appelez le
Centre d'assistance technique HP. Dans les documents envoyés avec la pièce de rechange CSR, HP précise
s'il est nécessaire de lui retourner la pièce défectueuse. Si c'est le cas, vous devez le faire dans le délai
indiqué, généralement cinq (5) jours ouvrés. La pièce et sa documentation doivent être retournées dans
l'emballage fourni. Si vous ne retournez pas la pièce défectueuse, HP se réserve le droit de vous facturer les
coûts de remplacement. Dans le cas d'une pièce CSR, HP supporte l'ensemble des frais d'expédition et de
retour, et détermine la société de courses ou le transporteur à utiliser.
Pour plus d'informations sur le programme CSR de HP, contactez votre Mainteneur Agrée local. Pour plus

Riparazione da parte del cliente
Per abbreviare i tempi di riparazione e garantire una maggiore flessibilità nella sostituzione di parti
difettose, i prodotti HP sono realizzati con numerosi componenti che possono essere riparati direttamente
dal cliente (CSR, Customer Self Repair). Se in fase di diagnostica HP (o un centro di servizi o di assistenza
HP) identifica il guasto come riparabile mediante un ricambio CSR, HP lo spedirà direttamente al cliente per
la sostituzione. Vi sono due categorie di parti CSR:
Obbligatorie – Parti che devono essere necessariamente riparate dal cliente. Se il cliente ne affida la
riparazione ad HP, deve sostenere le spese di spedizione e di manodopera per il servizio.
Opzionali – Parti la cui riparazione da parte del cliente è facoltativa. Si tratta comunque di componenti
progettati per questo scopo. Se tuttavia il cliente ne richiede la sostituzione ad HP, potrebbe dover sostenere
spese addizionali a seconda del tipo di garanzia previsto per il prodotto.
NOTA: alcuni componenti HP non sono progettati per la riparazione da parte del cliente. Per rispettare la
garanzia, HP richiede che queste parti siano sostituite da un centro di assistenza autorizzato. Tali parti sono
identificate da un "No" nel Catalogo illustrato dei componenti.
In base alla disponibilità e alla località geografica, le parti CSR vengono spedite con consegna entro il
giorno lavorativo seguente. La consegna nel giorno stesso o entro quattro ore è offerta con un supplemento
di costo solo in alcune zone. In caso di necessità si può richiedere l'assistenza telefonica di un addetto del
centro di supporto tecnico HP. Nel materiale fornito con una parte di ricambio CSR, HP specifica se il cliente
deve restituire dei componenti. Qualora sia richiesta la resa ad HP del componente difettoso, lo si deve
spedire ad HP entro un determinato periodo di tempo, generalmente cinque (5) giorni lavorativi. Il
componente difettoso deve essere restituito con la documentazione associata nell'imballo di spedizione
fornito. La mancata restituzione del componente può comportare la fatturazione del ricambio da parte di HP.
Nel caso di riparazione da parte del cliente, HP sostiene tutte le spese di spedizione e resa e sceglie il
corriere/vettore da utilizzare.
Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma CSR di HP contattare il centro di assistenza di zona. Per il
programma in Nord America fare riferimento al sito Web HP (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Customer Self Repair
HP Produkte enthalten viele CSR-Teile (Customer Self Repair), um Reparaturzeiten zu minimieren und höhere
Flexibilität beim Austausch defekter Bauteile zu ermöglichen. Wenn HP (oder ein HP Servicepartner) bei der
Diagnose feststellt, dass das Produkt mithilfe eines CSR-Teils repariert werden kann, sendet Ihnen HP dieses
Bauteil zum Austausch direkt zu. CSR-Teile werden in zwei Kategorien unterteilt:
Zwingend – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren zwingend vorgegeben ist. Wenn Sie den
Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen, werden Ihnen die Anfahrt- und Arbeitskosten für diesen
Service berechnet.
Optional – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren optional ist. Diese Teile sind auch für Customer
Self Repair ausgelegt. Wenn Sie jedoch den Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen möchten,
können bei diesem Service je nach den für Ihr Produkt vorgesehenen Garantiebedingungen zusätzliche
Kosten anfallen.
HINWEIS: Einige Teile sind nicht für Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Um den Garantieanspruch des
Kunden zu erfüllen, muss das Teil von einem HP Servicepartner ersetzt werden. Im illustrierten Teilekatalog
sind diese Teile mit „No“ bzw. „Nein“ gekennzeichnet.
Technical support
115
CSR-Teile werden abhängig von der Verfügbarkeit und vom Lieferziel am folgenden Geschäftstag geliefert.
Für bestimmte Standorte ist eine Lieferung am selben Tag oder innerhalb von vier Stunden gegen einen
Aufpreis verfügbar. Wenn Sie Hilfe benötigen, können Sie das HP technische Support Center anrufen und
sich von einem Mitarbeiter per Telefon helfen lassen. Den Materialien, die mit einem CSR-Ersatzteil geliefert
werden, können Sie entnehmen, ob das defekte Teil an HP zurückgeschickt werden muss. Wenn es
erforderlich ist, das defekte Teil an HP zurückzuschicken, müssen Sie dies innerhalb eines vorgegebenen
Zeitraums tun, in der Regel innerhalb von fünf (5) Geschäftstagen. Das defekte Teil muss mit der zugehörigen
Dokumentation in der Verpackung zurückgeschickt werden, die im Lieferumfang enthalten ist. Wenn Sie das
defekte Teil nicht zurückschicken, kann HP Ihnen das Ersatzteil in Rechnung stellen. Im Falle von Customer
Self Repair kommt HP für alle Kosten für die Lieferung und Rücksendung auf und bestimmt den
Kurier-/Frachtdienst.
Weitere Informationen über das HP Customer Self Repair Programm erhalten Sie von Ihrem Servicepartner
vor Ort. Informationen über das CSR-Programm in Nordamerika finden Sie auf der HP Website unter
(http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparaciones del propio cliente
Los productos de HP incluyen muchos componentes que el propio usuario puede reemplazar (Customer Self
Repair, CSR) para minimizar el tiempo de reparación y ofrecer una mayor flexibilidad a la hora de realizar
sustituciones de componentes defectuosos. Si, durante la fase de diagnóstico, HP (o los proveedores o socios
de servicio de HP) identifica que una reparación puede llevarse a cabo mediante el uso de un componente
CSR, HP le enviará dicho componente directamente para que realice su sustitución. Los componentes CSR se
clasifican en dos categorías:
•
Obligatorio: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es obligatoria. Si solicita a
HP que realice la sustitución de estos componentes, tendrá que hacerse cargo de los gastos de
desplazamiento y de mano de obra de dicho servicio.
•
Opcional: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es opcional. Estos
componentes también están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Sin embargo, si
precisa que HP realice su sustitución, puede o no conllevar costes adicionales, dependiendo del tipo de
servicio de garantía correspondiente al producto.
NOTA: Algunos componentes no están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Para que
el usuario haga valer su garantía, HP pone como condición que un proveedor de servicios autorizado
realice la sustitución de estos componentes. Dichos componentes se identifican con la palabra "No" en el
catálogo ilustrado de componentes.
Según la disponibilidad y la situación geográfica, los componentes CSR se enviarán para que lleguen a su
destino al siguiente día laborable. Si la situación geográfica lo permite, se puede solicitar la entrega en el
mismo día o en cuatro horas con un coste adicional. Si precisa asistencia técnica, puede llamar al Centro de
asistencia técnica de HP y recibirá ayuda telefónica por parte de un técnico. Con el envío de materiales
para la sustitución de componentes CSR, HP especificará si los componentes defectuosos deberán
devolverse a HP. En aquellos casos en los que sea necesario devolver algún componente a HP, deberá
hacerlo en el periodo de tiempo especificado, normalmente cinco días laborables. Los componentes
defectuosos deberán devolverse con toda la documentación relacionada y con el embalaje de envío. Si no
enviara el componente defectuoso requerido, HP podrá cobrarle por el de sustitución. En el caso de todas
sustituciones que lleve a cabo el cliente, HP se hará cargo de todos los gastos de envío y devolución de
componentes y escogerá la empresa de transporte que se utilice para dicho servicio.

Customer Self Repair
Veel onderdelen in HP producten zijn door de klant zelf te repareren, waardoor de reparatieduur tot een
minimum beperkt kan blijven en de flexibiliteit in het vervangen van defecte onderdelen groter is. Deze
onderdelen worden CSR-onderdelen (Customer Self Repair) genoemd. Als HP (of een HP Service Partner) bij
de diagnose vaststelt dat de reparatie kan worden uitgevoerd met een CSR-onderdeel, verzendt HP dat
onderdeel rechtstreeks naar u, zodat u het defecte onderdeel daarmee kunt vervangen. Er zijn twee
categorieën CSR-onderdelen:
Verplicht: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant verplicht is. Als u HP verzoekt deze onderdelen
voor u te vervangen, worden u voor deze service reiskosten en arbeidsloon in rekening gebracht.
Optioneel: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant optioneel is. Ook deze onderdelen zijn ontworpen
voor reparatie door de klant. Als u echter HP verzoekt deze onderdelen voor u te vervangen, kunnen
daarvoor extra kosten in rekening worden gebracht, afhankelijk van het type garantieservice voor het
product.
OPMERKING: Sommige HP onderdelen zijn niet ontwikkeld voor reparatie door de klant. In verband met
de garantievoorwaarden moet het onderdeel door een geautoriseerde Service Partner worden vervangen.
Deze onderdelen worden in de geïllustreerde onderdelencatalogus aangemerkt met "Nee".
Afhankelijk van de leverbaarheid en de locatie worden CSR-onderdelen verzonden voor levering op de
eerstvolgende werkdag. Levering op dezelfde dag of binnen vier uur kan tegen meerkosten worden
aangeboden, indien dit mogelijk is gezien de locatie. Indien assistentie gewenst is, belt u een HP Service
Partner om via de telefoon technische ondersteuning te ontvangen. HP vermeldt in de documentatie bij het
vervangende CSR-onderdeel of het defecte onderdeel aan HP moet worden geretourneerd. Als het defecte
onderdeel aan HP moet worden teruggezonden, moet u het defecte onderdeel binnen een bepaalde
periode, gewoonlijk vijf (5) werkdagen, retourneren aan HP. Het defecte onderdeel moet met de
bijbehorende documentatie worden geretourneerd in het meegeleverde verpakkingsmateriaal. Als u het
defecte onderdeel niet terugzendt, kan HP u voor het vervangende onderdeel kosten in rekening brengen. Bij
reparatie door de klant betaalt HP alle verzendkosten voor het vervangende en geretourneerde onderdeel en
kiest HP zelf welke koerier/transportonderneming hiervoor wordt gebruikt.
Neem contact op met een Service Partner voor meer informatie over het Customer Self Repair programma
van HP. Informatie over Service Partners vindt u op de HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparo feito pelo cliente
Os produtos da HP são projetados com muitas peças para reparo feito pelo cliente (CSR) de modo a
minimizar o tempo de reparo e permitir maior flexibilidade na substituição de peças com defeito. Se,
durante o período de diagnóstico, a HP (ou fornecedores/parceiros de serviço da HP) concluir que o reparo
pode ser efetuado pelo uso de uma peça CSR, a peça de reposição será enviada diretamente ao cliente.
Existem duas categorias de peças CSR:
Obrigatória – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é obrigatório. Se desejar que a HP substitua essas peças,
serão cobradas as despesas de transporte e mão-de-obra do serviço.
Technical support
117
Opcional – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é opcional. Essas peças também são projetadas para o
reparo feito pelo cliente. No entanto, se desejar que a HP as substitua, pode haver ou não a cobrança de
taxa adicional, dependendo do tipo de serviço de garantia destinado ao produto.
OBSERVAÇÃO: Algumas peças da HP não são projetadas para o reparo feito pelo cliente. A fim de
cumprir a garantia do cliente, a HP exige que um técnico autorizado substitua a peça. Essas peças estão
identificadas com a marca "No" (Não), no catálogo de peças ilustrado.
Conforme a disponibilidade e o local geográfico, as peças CSR serão enviadas no primeiro dia útil após o
pedido. Onde as condições geográficas permitirem, a entrega no mesmo dia ou em quatro horas pode ser
feita mediante uma taxa adicional. Se precisar de auxílio, entre em contato com o Centro de suporte técnico
da HP para que um técnico o ajude por telefone. A HP especifica nos materiais fornecidos com a peça CSR
de reposição se a peça com defeito deve ser devolvida à HP. Nos casos em que isso for necessário, é
preciso enviar a peça com defeito à HP dentro do período determinado, normalmente cinco (5) dias úteis.
A peça com defeito deve ser enviada com a documentação correspondente no material de transporte
fornecido. Caso não o faça, a HP poderá cobrar a reposição. Para as peças de reparo feito pelo cliente, a
HP paga todas as despesas de transporte e de devolução da peça e determina a transportadora/serviço
postal a ser utilizado.
Para obter mais informações sobre o programa de reparo feito pelo cliente da HP, entre em contato com o
