Serverboard Features
At the heart of the A+ SERVER 1022G-URF lies the H8DGU-F, a dual processor
serverboard based on the AMD SR5670/SP5100 chipset. Below are the main
features of the H8DGU-F. (See Figure 1-1 for a block diagram of the chipset).
Processors
The H8DGU-F supports single or dual AMD Opteron 6100 Series processors in
Socket G34 type sockets. Please refer to our web site for a complete listing of
supported processors (www.supermicro.com).
Memory
The H8DGU-F has sixteen single/dual/tri/quad channel 240-pin DIMM sockets that
can support up to 256GB of DDR3-1333/1066/800MHz registered ECC SDRAM or
64 GB of DDR3-1333/1066/800 MHz unbuffered ECC/non-ECC SDRAM. Please
refer to Chapter 5 for installing memory.
UIO
The H8DGU-F is a specially-designed serverboard that features Supermicro's UIO
(Universal I/O) technology. UIO serverboards have a PCI Express x8 slot that can
support any one of several types of UIO card types to add SAS ports, additional
LAN ports, etc. to the serverboard. This allows the user to tailor the serverboard
to their own needs.
Note: the server does not come with a UIO card installed.
Serial ATA
An on-chip (SP5100) SATA controller is integrated into the H8DGU-F to provide
a six-port, 3 Gb/sec SATA subsystem, which is RAID 0, 1, and 10 supported. The
SATA drives are hot-swappable units.
Note: You must have RAID set up to enable the hot-swap capability of the SATA
drives. Documentation on RAID setup guidelines can be found on our web site.
Onboard Controllers/Ports
The color-coded I/O ports include two COM ports (one header and one port), a VGA
(monitor) port, Seven USB 2.0 ports (2x rear, 4x header, 1x type A), PS/2 mouse
and keyboard ports, two gigabit Ethernet ports and one dedicated IPMI LAN port.
1-2
Chapter 1: Introduction
Graphics Controller
The H8DGU-F features an integrated Matrox G200eW graphics chip, which includes
16 MB of DDR2 memory.

must be shut down when replacing or removing this power supply module.
Hard Drive Subsystem
The SC815TQ-R700UB chassis was designed to support four hot-swap SAS/SATA
hard drives. (Requires UIO controller card - not included with system.)
Note: A SAS or SATA UIO card must be installed to support SAS or SATA
drives.
PCI Expansion Slots
A riser card (RSC-R1UU-UE16, optional) on the left side of the chassis can support
a AOC-PG-i2+ add-on card to provide two additional Gb LAN ports. Alternately, this
slot can instead support either a UIO card, one PCI-E x16 card, or four SAS/SATA
drives with an optional UIO SAS card. See our web site for details (http://www.
supermicro.com/products/nfo/UIO.cfm). See section 5-6 for further details.)

Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your A+ SERVER 1022G-URF
up and running. Following these steps in the order given should enable you to have
the system operational within a minimum amount of time. This quick setup assumes
that your system has come to you with the processors and memory preinstalled. If
your system is not already fully integrated with a serverboard, processors, system
memory etc., please turn to the chapter or section noted in each step for details on
installing specific components.
2-2
Unpacking the System
You should inspect the box the A+ SERVER 1022G-URF was shipped in and note
if it was damaged in any way. If the server itself shows damage you should file a
damage claim with the carrier who delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold the 1022G-URF. It
should be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is well ventilated. Avoid areas
where heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields are generated. You will also
need it placed near a grounded power outlet. Be sure to read the Rack and Server
Precautions in the next section.
2-3
Preparing for Setup
The box the A+ SERVER 1022G-URF was shipped in should include two sets of
rail assemblies, two rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you will need
to install the system into the rack. Follow the steps in the order given to complete
the installation process in a minimum amount of time. Please read this section in
its entirety before you begin the installation procedure outlined in the sections that
follow.
2-1
A+ SERVER 1022G-URF User's Manual
Choosing a Setup Location
•
•
Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open the front door
completely (~25 inches) and approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back
of the rack to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.This product is for
installation only in a Restricted Access Location (dedicated equipment rooms,
service closets and the like).
This product is not suitable for use with visual display work place devices
acccording to §2 of the the German Ordinance for Work with Visual Display
Units.
!
Warnings and Precautions!
!
Rack Precautions
•
•
•
•
Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully extended to
the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack. In multiple
rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from the
rack.
You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or more simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
Server Precautions
•
•
•
•
Review the electrical and general safety precautions in Chapter 4.
Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the
rails.
Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and then
work up.
Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from
power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your system operating in case of a
power failure.
2-2
Chapter 2: Server Installation
•
•
Allow the hot plug SATA drives and power supply modules to cool before touching them.
Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on the servers
closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
Rack Mounting Considerations
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating
temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient temperature
of the room. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment
in an environment compatible with the manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient
temperature (Tmra).
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow required
for safe operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does not
arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power
supply circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack
itself should be grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply
connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of
power strips, etc.).

Installing the System into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the 1022G-URF into a rack unit with
the rack rails provided. If the system has already been mounted into a rack, you
can skip ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6.
There are a variety of rack units on the market, which may mean the assembly
procedure will differ slightly. You should also refer to the installation instructions that
came with the rack unit you are using.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
You should have received two rack rail assemblies in the rack mounting kit. Each
assembly consists of two sections: an inner fixed chassis rail that secures directly
to the server chassis and an outer fixed rack rail that secures directly to the rack
itself (see Figure 2-1). Two pairs of short brackets to be used on the front side of
the outer rails are also included.
Installing the Inner Rails
Both the left and right side inner rails have been pre-attached to the chassis.
Proceed to the next step.
Figure 2-1. Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
(right side rail shown)
2-4
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Outer Rails
Begin by measuring the distance from the front rail to the rear rail of the rack. Attach
a short bracket to the front side of the right outer rail and a long bracket to the rear
side of the right outer rail. Adjust both the short and long brackets to the proper
distance so that the rail can fit snugly into the rack. Secure the short bracket to the
front side of the outer rail with two screws and the long bracket to the rear side of
the outer rail with three screws. Repeat these steps for the left outer rail.
Locking Tabs: Both chassis rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions.
The first is to lock the server into place when installed and pushed fully into the
rack, which is its normal position. Secondly, these tabs also lock the server in place
when fully extended from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely
out of the rack when you pull it out for servicing.
Figure 2-2. Installing the Rack Rails
2-5
A+ SERVER 1022G-URF User's Manual
Installing the Server into the Rack
You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack unit. The next
step is to install the server into the rack. Do this by lining up the rear of the chassis
rails with the front of the rack rails. Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping
the pressure even on both sides (you may have to depress the locking tabs when
inserting). See Figure 2-3 for details.
When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the
locking tabs "click".
Figure 2-3. Installing the Server into a Rack

Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Server into a Telco Rack
To install the 1022G-URF into a Telco type rack, use two L-shaped brackets on
either side of the chassis (four total). First, determine how far follow the server will
extend out the front of the rack. Larger chassis should be positioned to balance the
weight between front and back. If a bezel is included on your server, remove it. Then
attach the two front brackets to each side of the chassis, then the two rear brackets
positioned with just enough space to accommodate the width of the telco rack. Finish
by sliding the chassis into the rack and tightening the brackets to the rack.

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After you install the 1022G-URF in the rack, you will need to open the top cover
to make sure the serverboard is properly installed and all the connections have
been made.
Accessing the Inside of the System
1. First, grasp the two handles on either side and pull the system straight out
until it locks (you will hear a "click").
2. Depress the two buttons on the top of the chassis to release the top cover
(1).
3. Push the cover away from you (toward the rear of the chassis) until it stops
(2). You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access to the
inside of the server. See Figure 2-5.
4. To remove the system from the rack completely, depress the locking tabs in
the chassis rails (push the right-side tab down and the left-side tab up) to
continue to pull the system out past the locked position.
Checking the Components
1. You may have one or two processors already installed in the serverboard.
Each processor needs its own heatsink. See Chapter 5 for instructions on
processor and heatsink installation.
2. Your server system may have come with system memory already installed.
Make sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots. For details on adding
system memory, refer to Chapter 5.
3. If desired, you can install add-on cards to the system. See Chapter 5 for
details on installing PCI add-on cards.
4. Make sure all power and data cables are properly connected and not blocking
the chassis airflow. See Chapter 5 for details on cable connections.

Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the SATA drives and SATA
backplane have been properly installed and all connections have been made.
Checking the Drives
1. All drives are accessable from the front of the server. The SATA disk drives
can be installed and removed from the front of the chassis without removing
the top chassis cover.
2. A slim DVD-ROM drive should be preinstalled in your server. For servicing
the DVD-ROM drive, you will need to remove the top chassis cover. Refer to
Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a DVD-ROM drive to the system.
3. Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one or
more drives already installed. If you need to install SATA drives, please refer
to Chapter 6.
2-9
A+ SERVER 1022G-URF User's Manual
Checking the Airflow
1. Airflow is provided by four sets of 4-cm fans (each set of fans consists of
two fans that are mounted back to back). The system component layout was
carefully designed to direct sufficient cooling airflow to the components that
generate the most heat.
2. Note that all power and data cables have been routed in such a way that they
do not block the airflow generated by the fans.
Providing Power
1. The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug the
power cords from the power supply modules into a high-quality power strip
that offers protection from electrical noise and power surges.
2. It is recommended that you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Overview
There are several LEDs on the control panel as well as others on the SAS/SATA
drive carriers to keep you constantly informed of the overall status of the system as
well as the activity and health of specific components. There are also two buttons
on the chassis control panel and an on/off switch on the power supply. This chapter
explains the meanings of all LED indicators and the appropriate response you may
need to take.
3-2
Control Panel Buttons
There are three push-buttons located on the front of the chassis: a reset button, a
UID button and a power on/off button.
UID
Depressing the UID (unit identifier) button illuminates an LED on both the front and
rear of the chassis for easy system location in large stack configurations. The LED
will remain on until the button is pushed a second time. Another UID button on the
rear of the chassis serves the same function.
Reset
Use the reset button to reboot the system.

A+ SERVER 1022G-URF User's Manual
Power
The main power button is used to apply or remove power from the power supply
to the server system. Turning off system power with this button removes the main
power but keeps standby power supplied to the system.
3-3
Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC815TS-RR700UB chassis has five
LEDs. These LEDs provide you with critical information related to different parts
of the system. This section explains what each LED indicates when illuminated
and any corrective action you may need to take.
Universal Information LED
When this LED blinks red quickly, it indicates a fan failure and when blinking red
slowly a power failure. The LED will be blue when used for UID (Unit Identifier).
When on continuously it indicates an overheat condition, which may be caused by
cables obstructing the airflow in the system or the ambient room temperature being
too warm. Check the routing of the cables and make sure all fans are present and
operating normally. You should also check to make sure that the chassis covers
are installed. Finally, verify that the heatsinks are installed properly (see Chapter
5). This LED will remain flashing or on as long as the indicated condition exists.
See the table below for descriptions of the LED states.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm
and the A+ SERVER 1022G-URF from damage:
•
•
•
•
•
Be aware of the locations of the power on/off switch on the chassis as well
as the room's emergency power-off switch, disconnection switch or electrical
outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then quickly remove power from
the system.
Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing or installing main system components, such as the serverboard, memory modules
and floppy drive. When disconnecting power, you should first power down the
operating system first and then unplug the power cords. The unit has more than
one power supply cord. Disconnect two power supply cords before servicing to
avoid electrical shock.
When working around exposed electrical circuits, another person who is familiar
with the power-off controls should be nearby to switch off the power if necessary.
Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment. This
is to avoid making a complete circuit, which will cause electrical shock. Use
extreme caution when using metal tools, which can easily damage any electrical
components or circuit boards they come into contact with.
•
Do not use mats designed to decrease static electrical discharge as protection
from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically
designed as electrical insulators.

The power supply power cords must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
This product may be connected to an IT power system. In all cases, make sure
that the unit is also reliably connected to Earth (ground).
Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the onboard
battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarites (see Figure
4-1). This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the
manufacturer's instructions.
DVD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with a
DVD-ROM drive. To prevent direct exposure to the laser beam and hazardous
radiation exposure, do not open the enclosure or use the unit in any unconventional way.
Mainboard replaceable soldered-in fuses: Self-resetting PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) fuses on the mainboard must be replaced by trained service
technicians only. The new fuse must be the same or equivalent as the one
replaced. Contact technical support for details and support.
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
•
•
•
Keep the area around the 1012G-MTF clean and free of clutter.
The 1022G-URF weighs approximately 40 lbs (18.1kg) when fully loaded.
When lifting the system, two people at either end should lift slowly with their
feet spread out to distribute the weight. Always keep your back straight and lift
with your legs.
Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been removed away from the system or on a table so that they won't accidentally be
stepped on.

•
4-3
While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties and
unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact with electrical circuits or
be pulled into a cooling fan.
Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent metal
conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come into contact
with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.
After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and secure
it to the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that all connections
have been made.
ESD Precautions
!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different electrical
charges coming into contact with each other. An electrical discharge is created to
neutralize this difference, which can damage electronic components and printed
circuit boards. The following measures are generally sufficient to neutralize this
difference before contact is made to protect your equipment from ESD:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic bags
until ready for use.
Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic
bag.
Do not let components or PCBs come into contact with your clothing, which may
retain a charge even if you are wearing a wrist strap.
Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or contacts.
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
Put the serverboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not
in use.

For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the serverboard.
Operating Precautions
!
Care must be taken to assure that the chassis cover is in place when the 1022GURF is operating to assure proper cooling. Out of warranty damage to the system
can occur if this practice is not strictly followed.

Handling the Serverboard
Static electrical discharge can damage electronic components. To prevent damage
to printed circuit boards, it is important to handle them very carefully (see Chapter 4).
Also note that the size and weight of the serverboard can cause it to bend if handled
improperly, which may result in damage. To prevent the serverboard from bending,
keep one hand under the center of the board to support it when handling.
The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from
static discharge.
Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic
bag.
Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or gold contacts.
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
Put the serverboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic
bags when not in use.

Processor and Heatsink Installation
!
When handling the processor, avoid placing direct pressure on the label
area of the fan. Also, do not place the serverboard on a conductive
surface, which can damage the BIOS battery and prevent the system
from booting up.
IMPORTANT! Always connect the power cord last and remove it first before
adding, removing or changing any hardware components. Make sure that you
install the processor into the CPU socket before you install the heatsink and fan.
The H8DGU-F can support either one or two processors. If installing one processor
only, install it into the CPU1 socket.
Note: When purchasing a CPU or when receiving a serverboard with a CPU preinstalled, make sure that the CPU plastic cap is in place and none of the CPU pins
are bent; otherwise, contact the retailer immediately.
Installing the Processors
1. Begin by removing the cover plate that
protects the CPU. Lift the lever on the
CPU socket until it points straight up.
2. With the lever raised, lift open the silver
CPU retention plate.
5-2
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
3. Use your thumb and your index finger
to hold the CPU. Locate and align pin
1 of the CPU socket with pin 1 of the
CPU. Both are marked with a triangle.
4. Align pin 1 of the CPU with pin 1 of the
socket. Once aligned, carefully place
the CPU into the socket. Do not drop
the CPU on the socket, move the CPU
horizontally or vertically or rub the CPU
against the socket or against any pins
of the socket, which may damage the
CPU and/or the socket.
Triangle
5. With the CPU inserted into the socket,
inspect the four corners of the CPU to
make sure that it is properly installed
and flush with the socket. Then, gently
lower the silver CPU retention plate into
place.
6. Carefully press the CPU socket lever
down until it locks into its retention
tab. For a dual-CPU system, repeat
these steps to install another CPU into
the CPU#2 socket (and into CPU#2,
#3 and #4 sockets for a quad-CPU
configuration).
Note: in single and dual-CPU configurations, memory must be installed in the DIMM
slots associated with the installed CPU(s). Memory is limited to a maximum of 128
for single CPU and 256 GB for dual CPU configurations.

Connecting Cables
Now that the processors are installed, the next step is to connect the cables to the
serverboard. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the peripherals and control
panel and the power cables.
Connecting Data Cables
The cables used to transfer data from the peripheral devices have been carefully
routed in preconfigured systems to prevent them from blocking the flow of cooling
air that moves through the system from front to back. If you need to disconnect any
of these cables, you should take care to reroute them as they were originally after
reconnecting them (make sure the red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). If you
are configuring the system, keep the airflow in mind when routing the cables.
The following data cables (with their serverboard connector locations noted) should
be connected. See the serverboard layout diagram in this chapter for connector
locations.
•
DVD-ROM drive cable (USB4)
•
SAS cable (connects to optional UIO SAS controller card)
•
Control Panel cable (JF1, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The H8DGU-F has a 20-pin primary power supply connector designated "JPW1"
for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate connector from
the power supply to JPW1 to supply power to the serverboard. See the Connector
Definitions section in this chapter for power connector pin definitions.
In addition, your power supply must be connected to the 8-pin Processor Power
connectors at JPW2 and JPW3.
Connecting the Control Panel
JF1 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See Figure 5-1
for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons and LED indicators.
Please note that even and odd numbered pins are on opposite sides of each
header.
All JF1 wires have been bundled into single keyed ribbon cable to simplify their
connection. The red wire in the ribbon cable plugs into pin 1 of JF1. Connect the
other end of the cable to the Control Panel printed circuit board, located just behind
the system status LEDs in the chassis.
