3.5.3
LPC Bus Interface
The LPC bus is a multiplexed (command, address, and data) serialized 4-bit bus
with optional side band signals. It replaces the ISA/X-bus and reduces pin count
(approximately 40) over the ISA/X-bus.
LPC is designed to reduce the cost of traditional X-bus devices and meet the data
transfer rate of X-bus, exceeding those data rates where appropriated. It performs
the same cycle types as the X-bus: Memory, I/O, DMA and Bus Master. And, it
increases the memory space from 16 Mbytes on the X-bus to 4 GB to allow BIOS
sizes much greater than 1 Mbyte and other memory devices outside of the
traditional 16 MByte range.
The LPC is software transparent and does not require special drivers or
configuration for its interface. The motherboard BIOS configures all devices at boot
up. It has the ability to support a variable number of wait states, to have I/O and
memory cycles retried in SMM handler and to support wake-up and other power
state transitions. The design meets LPC 1.0 design guidelines.
The LPC bus provides system connectivity to the following devices:
3.5.4
■
Redundant BIOS
■
TPM
■
IPMC
■
RS-232 Serial Ports
Redundant BIOS
The Sun Netra CP3250 blade server provides redundant 1-Mbyte BIOS chips that
support redundant BIOS images for increased reliability.
The redundant Flash PROMs and SRAM devices are used by the BIOS. Each PROM
is an 8 MB flash device. The primary flash device (FWH0) contains the primary BIOS
image, factory default settings, and user configured settings. The primary BIOS chip
is automatically selected for update during a firmware upgrade.
The secondary flash device (FWH1) contains a backup copy, normally of the last
known good BIOS image, factory default settings, and last good user-configured
settings. The secondary BIOS chip retains the original BIOS image, and can be used
through manual configuration if the primary BIOS is corrupt.
In the event of a checksum or other failure during boot of the primary BIOS image,
the H8 switches the system over to the secondary device to allow system boot
recovery.

■
Dual buffered IPMB interfaces to connect to IPMB-0
■
Hot-swap latch input and LED control
■
Payload power control
■
Payload base and fabric interface e-keying control
■
Payload power and temperature monitoring
RS-232 Serial Ports
A Serial port is available on the front panel using an RJ-45 connector. This same port
is also wired through the Zone 3 connectors to provide a copy of this port on the
ARTM. This connector shares the SuperIO chip Port A with the H8-IPMI controller,
to allow console messages to be directed to the H8 when the external ports are not in
use. The blade server detects a valid RS232 connection to either the front or rear port
and will automatically disconnect the SuperIO port from the H8 and connect to the
external ports.
Note – The front and rear ports cannot be used at the same time because they share
the same wires.

Sun Netra CP3250 Blade Server User’s Guide • April 2009
3.6.2
EIDE/ATA for Compact Flash
An EIDE/ATA-133 bus is derived from a SATA port on the ICH9 IO Hub via an
SPF223A SATA to IDE converter.
The Sun Netra CP3250 blade server contains one on-board 50-pin Type II Compact
Flash connector for use with a Compact Flash Card. The connector is located so that
access to the Compact Flash card is provided only when the card is removed from
the ATCA chassis.
3.6.3
SAS/SATA
The Sun Netra CP3250 blade server supports AMC drives (SAS or SATA), that
contain their own PCIe based controller chip connecting to the system via the PCIe
Bus. The Sun Netra CP3250 blade server supports an AMC that contains drives
using Port 2 or 3 SAS connections only when the Netra CP32x0 ARTM-HD is
present. The SATA lines from the ICH9 chip are not connected.
If present, the Netra CP32x0 ARTM-HD drives the AMC Port-2 signals. This support
speeds up to 3 Gb/sec.
There is no support for drives mounted directly to the blade server, and the Sun
Netra CP3250 blade server itself does not contain any native support for SAS or
SATA drives.

Configuring Sun Netra CP3250 blade
server For 1 GbE or 10 GbE Switches
The extended fabric on the Sun Netra CP3250 blade server is capable of operating at
either 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps. The Sun Netra CP3250 blade server can be used in the
Netra CT 900 server with either the Netra CP3240 10-GbE switch or the Netra
CP3140 1-GbE switch. Therefore it is important that the driver configuration file be
modified accordingly.
If you are using the Solaris OS, the network interface driver configuration file,
nxge.conf, for the extended fabric ports of the Sun 10 GbE ASIC might need to be
modified to employ the proper switch and ARTM configurations. The nxge.conf
file is located in the /platform/i86pc/kernel/drv directory. The following
examples show the proper entries for each switch configuration.
Example 1: When extended fabric ports are connected to Netra CP3240 switches in
Slot 7 and Slot 8, the nxge.conf file should have the following entries:
name = "pciex108e,abcd" parent = "/pci@0,0/pci8086,65f8@4" unit-address ="0" phy-type = "xgsd";
name = "pciex108e,abcd" parent = "/pci@0,0/pci8086,65f8@4" unit-address ="0,1" phy-type =
"xgsd";
Example 2: When extended fabric ports are connected to Netra CP3140 switches in
Slot 7 and Slot 8, the nxge.conf file should have the following entries:
name = "pciex108e,abcd" parent = "/pci@0,0/pci8086,65f8@4" unit-address ="0" phy-type = "gsd";
name = "pciex108e,abcd" parent = "/pci@0,0/pci8086,65f8@4" unit-address ="0,1" phy-type = "gsd";
If you are using another OS, refer to the documentation that came with your OS.

Secondary BIOS Image
The Sun Netra CP3250 blade server provides dual 1-Mbyte BIOS chips that support
redundant BIOS images for increased reliability. The default chip (page 0) acts as the
primary BIOS chip and is automatically selected for update during a firmware
upgrade. The secondary BIOS chip (page 1) retains the original BIOS image, and can
be used through manual configuration in the unlikely case where the primary BIOS
becomes corrupt.
If the primary BIOS becomes unbootable, use the secondary BIOS to manually boot
the blade server:
1. Log into the Shelf Manager.
2. To select the secondary BIOS image, type:
# clia sendcmd 96 2e 81 00 00 2a 01
For example:
# clia sendcmd 96 2e 81 00 00 2a 01 <----- Setting the boot page to 1
Pigeon Point Shelf Manager Command Line Interpreter
Completion code: 0x0 (0)
Response data: 00 00 2A
<----- successful completion code
<----- no data returned
3. To boot the blade server from the Shelf Manager, type:
# clia activate board n

Connector (Zone 3)
The Sun Netra CP3250 blade server provides all the I/O connections for rear access
through the Zone 3 advanced rear transition module (ARTM) connector. The
connector view and the pinout for the Zone 3 connector are shown in FIGURE B-6.
B-8
Sun Netra CP3250 Blade Server User’s Guide • April 2009
Zone 3 connector pinouts are presented from the point of view of the ATCA blade,
meaning that TX means the ATCA blade is the signal source and the ARTM is the
signal receiver. Similarly RX means the ATCA blade is the signal receiver and the
ARTM is the signal source.
The “reserved” pins indicate connector pins that are currently reserved for
compatibility to all ARTMs. Do not connect signals to reserved pins. The “no
connect” indicates pins that should not be connected by the Sun Netra CP3250 blade
server.

ShMM CLI and Commands
This appendix provides information about using the ShMM CLI and most
commonly used ShMM commands.
This appendix contains the following topics:
■
“Shelf Manager Command-Line Interface” on page 2
■
“Shelf Manager CLI Commands” on page 3
C-1
C.1
Shelf Manager Command-Line Interface
The Shelf Manager command-line interface (CLI) can be used to communicate with
the intelligent management controllers of the shelf, with blade servers, and with the
Shelf Manager itself, through text commands. The CLI is an IPMI-based set of
commands that can be accessed directly or through a higher-level management
application or a script. Administrators can access the CLI through a Telnet
connection or the shelf management card serial port. Using the CLI, operators can
access information about the current state of the shelf including current FRU
population, current sensor values, threshold settings, recent events, and overall shelf
health.
▼ To Start the Command-Line Interface
1. To use the CLI, first log on to the Linux operation system on the shelf
management card.
2. Once logged in, run the executable clia from the command line with specific
parameters.
The first parameter is the command verb. The clia executable is located on the
virtual root file system maintained by Linux running on the shelf management
card. The clia executable connects to the main Shelf Manager software process,
passes the command information to it, and retrieves the results. The Shelf
Manager must be running prior to starting the CLI. For example:
# clia ipmc 20
Pigeon Point Shelf Manager Command Line Interpreter
20: Entity: (d0, 0) Maximum FRU device ID: 20
PICMG Version 2.0
Hot Swap State: M4, Previous: M3, Last State Change Cause: Normal State Change
(0)
#
C-2
Sun Netra CP3250 Blade Server User’s Guide • April 2009
If started without parameters, clia enters an interactive mode. In that mode, the
program repeatedly issues a prompt to the terminal, accepts user input as the
next command with parameters, executes that command, and shows the results
on the terminal, until the user types the command exit or quit. For example:
# clia
Pigeon Point Shelf Manager Command Line Interpreter
CLI> ipmc 20
20: Entity: (d0, 0) Maximum FRU device ID: 20
PICMG Version 2.0
Hot Swap State: M4, Previous: M3, Last State Change Cause: Normal State Change
(0)
CLI> exit
#
C.2
Shelf Manager CLI Commands
The Shelf Manager CLI implements the following commands. They are described in
detail in the Netra CT 900 Server System Administration Manual (819-1177), with a
subsection for each command, in alphabetical order of the command names. For the
web site URL, see “Related Documentation” on page xv.
