Chapter 2
Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/
5015M-MF(+) up and running. Following the steps in the order given should enable
you to have the system operational within a minimal amount of time. This quick
setup assumes that your 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) system has come to you with
the processor and memory preinstalled. If your system is not already fully integrated
with a motherboard, processor, 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 SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) 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 SuperServer 5015MMR(+)/5015M-MF(+). 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. Read the
Rack and Server Precautions in the next section.
2-3 Preparing for Setup
The SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) does not ship with a rack rail hardware package as the system can be rack mounted without the use of rails. An
optional rack rail package is available if you wish to order from Supermicro. Follow
the steps in the order given to complete the installation process in a minimal amount
of time. Please read this section in its entirety before you begin the installation
procedure outlined in the sections that follow.
2-1
SUPERSERVER 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) 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).
- Leave 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 according 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 a 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.
- Allow the power supply units and hot plug Serial ATA drive 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.

Chapter 2: Server Installation
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.).

2-4
Installing the System into a Rack
(Rack hardware optional)
This section provides information on installing the SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/
5015M-MF(+) into a rack unit. If the system has already been mounted into a rack,
you can skip ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6.
Basic Installation Procedure
The 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) server comes with two rack mounting brackets,
which are located on each side at the front of the chassis. To mount the system
into a rack, simply screw these brackets directly to the front of the rack (two screws
for each bracket). As Figure 2-1 shows, the brackets can be located at the front of
the chassis (left figure) or moved approximately one-third to the rear of the chassis
(right figure).

Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing with Rackmount Kit
This section is only for customers that have the optional rack mount kit (CSE-PT8).
Each of these assemblies consist of two sections: an inner rail that secures to the
chassis and an outer rail that secures directly to the rack itself (see Figure 2-2).
This is a guideline for installing the unit into a rack with the optional rack kit. You
should also refer to the installation instructions that came with the rack unit you are
using.
Be aware that there are a variety of rack units on the market, which may
mean the assembly procedure will differ slightly.
Installing the Chassis Rails
The two rail sections must be detached from each other prior to installation. Do this
by depressing the locking tab on the inner rail to release it from its locked position
then pull the two rails completely apart. Do this for both the left and right side rack
rail assemblies.
Position the fixed chassis rail sections you just removed along the side of
the chassis making sure the three screw holes line up. Note that these two rails
are left/right specific. Screw the rail securely to the side of the chassis (see Figure
2-2). Repeat this procedure for the other rail on the other side of the chassis. You
will also need to attach the rail brackets when installing into a telco rack.
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.

[5015M-MR(+) shown]
Installing the Rack Rails
Determine where you want to place the 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) in the rack
(see Rack and Server Precautions in Section 2-3). Position the fixed rack rail/sliding rail guide assemblies at the desired location in the rack, keeping the sliding
rail guide facing the inside of the rack. Screw the assembly securely to the rack
using the brackets provided. Attach the other assembly to the other side of the
rack, making sure that both are at the exact same height and with the rail guides
facing inward.
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.
When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the
locking tabs "click". Finish by inserting and tightening the thumbscrews that hold
the front of the server to the rack.

Installing the Server into a Telco Rack
To install the 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) into a Telco type rack, use two L-shaped
brackets on either side of the chassis (four total). First, determine how far 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 rack.
Finish by sliding the chassis into the rack and tightening the brackets to the rack.

Checking the Motherboard Setup
After you install the 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) in the rack, you will need to open
the unit to make sure the motherboard is properly installed and all the connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the inside of the server (Figure 2-6)
First, release the retention screws that secure the unit to the rack. Grasp the two
handles on either side and pull the unit straight out until it locks (you will hear a
"click"). Then, remove the screws from the lips on either side of the chassis top
cover (see Figure 2-6 for location). Next, depress the two buttons on the top

of the chassis to release the top cover while pushing the cover away from you
until it stops. You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access
to the inside of the server.
2. Check the CPU (processor)
You may have a processor already installed into the system board. The processor should have its own heatsink attached. See Chapter 5 for instructions on
processor installation.
3. Check the system memory
Your 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) 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.

Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the Serial ATA drive
have been properly installed and all essential connections have been made.
1. Accessing the drive bays
For servicing the Serial ATA, CD-ROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove
the top chassis cover. The Serial ATA disk drive is located at the front right side of
the chassis.
2. Installing a CD-ROM and floppy disk drives
Refer to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a CD-ROM and/or floppy disk drive to
the system.
3. Check the Serial ATA disk drives
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have a Serial ATA
hard drive already installed. If you need to install a Serial ATA hard drive, please
refer to the appropriate section in Chapter 6.
4. Check the airflow
Airflow is provided by two sets of 4-cm counter-rotating fans. The system component layout was carefully designed to promote sufficient airflow through the small
1U rackmount space. Also note that all power and data cables have been routed
in such a way that they do not block the airflow generated by the fan.
5. Supplying power to the system
The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug the power
cord from the power supply unit into a high-quality power strip that offers protection from electrical noise and power surges. It is recommended that you use an
uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC512F-260/SC513F-260 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.
Overheat/Fan Fail: When this LED flashes it indicates a fan failure. When
on continuously (on and not flashing) 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 overheat condition exists.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from
harm and the SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) 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 motherboard, memory
modules and floppy drive. When disconnecting power, you should first power
down the system with the operating system first and then unplug the power
cords of all the power supply units in the system.
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.

SUPERSERVER 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) User's Manual
Motherboard 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.
CD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with a CDROM 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 SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) clean and
free of clutter.
The SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) weighs approximately 23/16.5
lbs. (10.5/7.5 kg) 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.
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.

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 motherboard 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 motherboard.

Handling the Motherboard
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very carefully
(see previous chapter). To prevent the motherboard 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 electric static discharge.
Precautions
•
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent Electrostatic Discharge (ESD).
•
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 motherboard, add-on cards 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 motherboard.

Motherboard Installation
This section explains the first step of physically mounting the PDSMi/PDSMi+ into
the SC512F-260/SC513F-260 chassis. Following the steps in the order given will
eliminate the most common problems encountered in such an installation. To remove the motherboard, follow the procedure in reverse order.
1. Accessing the inside of the system
Remove the screws from the back lip of the top cover of the chassis, then pull the
cover off.
2. Check compatibility of motherboard ports and I/O shield
The PDSMi/PDSMi+ requires a chassis big enough to support a 12" x 9.6" motherboard, such as Supermicro's SC512F-260/SC513F-260. Make sure that the I/O
ports on the motherboard align properly with their respective holes in the I/O shield
at the back of the chassis.
3. Mounting the motherboard onto the motherboard tray
Carefully mount the motherboard to the motherboard tray by aligning the board holes
with the raised metal standoffs that are visible in the chassis. Insert screws into all
the mounting holes on your motherboard that line up with the standoffs and tighten
until snug (if you screw them in too tight, you might strip the threads). Metal screws
provide an electrical contact to the motherboard ground to provide a continuous
ground for the system. Finish by replacing the top cover of the chassis.

Connecting Cables
Now that the motherboard is installed, the next step is to connect the cables to
the board. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the peripherals and control
panel and the power cables.
Connecting Data Cables
The ribbon cables used to transfer data from the peripheral devices have been carefully routed 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 keep them routed as they were originally after reconnecting
them (make sure the red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). The following data
cables (with their locations noted) should be connected. (See the layout on page
5-9 for connector locations.)
SATA drive data cable (SATA#0)
Control Panel cable (JF1)
CD-ROM drive cable (J3)
USB cable (USB5/6)
COM cable (COM2)
Important! Make sure the SATA cable does not come into contact with the fans.
Connecting Power Cables
The PDSMi/PDSMi+ has a 24-pin primary power supply connector (JPW1) for connection to the ATX power supply. In addition, there is an 8-pin secondary power
connector (JPW2) that also must be connected to your power supply (via a 4-pin
connector). See Section 5-9 for power connector pin definitions.
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.
All JF1 wires have been bundled into a single ribbon cable to simplify this connection. Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the board. The other
end connects to the Control Panel PCB board, located just behind the system status
LEDs on the chassis. See Chapter 5 for details and pin descriptions.

Chapter 5: Advanced Motherboard Setup
Installing the Heatsink
To install the heatsink, do not apply any thermal compound to the heatsink or CPU
die - the proper amount has already been applied. See Figure 5-3.
1. The heatsink that came with the system includes a heatsink retention bracket.
From the underside of the board, insert the retention bracket into the four holes
surrounding the CPU socket on the board.
2. Gently place the heatsink directly on the CPU so that the four mounting holes are
aligned with those on the retention mechanism. The heatsink can only be mounted
on the CPU in one orientation - two undersides of the heatsink have grooves that
must be positioned over two rows of capacitors along the sides of the CPU socket.
Make sure the heatsink sits completely flat on the CPU - if not completely flat, the
space between the two will degrade the heat dissipation function of the heatsink,
which may cause the processor to overheat.
3. Screw in two diagonal screws until just snug (do not fully tighten), then do the
same with the remaining two diagonal screws. Finish by fully tightening all four
screws.

Installing Memory
CAUTION! Exercise extreme care when installing or removing
!
DIMM modules to prevent any possible damage.
Memory support
The PDSMi/PDSMi+ supports dual-channel, unbuffered ECC DDR2-667/533/400
SDRAM. Both interleaved and non-interleaved memory configurations are supported, so you may populate any number of DIMM slots. Populating both slots
of a bank (blue slots first: DIMM1 and DIMM3, and then black slots: DIMM2 and
DIMM4) with DIMMs of the same size, type and speed will result in dual-channel,
interleaved memory, which is faster than single-channel, non-interleaved memory.
Note than when ECC memory is used, it may take 25-40 seconds for the VGA to
display.
Notes:
1. Due to a chipset limitation, 8GB of memory can only be supported by the following operating systems:
32-Bit: Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise
Edition
64-Bit: Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition, Windows XP Professional
x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition
2. You may install 2GB DIMMs in each slot; however, only DDR2-533 2GB DIMMs
are available for this configuration.
3. Some older versions of DDR2-667 may not match Intel's ODT (On-Die-Temperature) requirement and will be automatically down-graded to run at 533 MHz. If this
occurs, contact your memory vendor to check the ODT value.
Installing memory modules
Insert each memory module vertically, paying attention to the notches along the
bottom of the module to prevent inserting it incorrectly. Install to the blue slots first.
Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the slot (see
Figure 5-4).

Adding PCI Add-On Cards
The 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) can accommodate either one PCI-X 133 MHz
(full or half length) card or (with the optional CSE-RR1U-ELi riser card) one PCIExpress x8 card.
To install an add-on card, begin by removing the PCI slot shield for the slot you
wish to populate. Fully seat the card into the correct riser card slot, pushing down
with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card. Finish by using a screw to
secure the top of the card shield to the riser card. The PCI slot shields protect the
motherboard and its components from EMI and aid in proper ventilation, so make
sure there is always a shield covering each unused slot.

Advanced Chassis Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform maintenance on the SC512F-260/SC513F-260 chassis. For component installation, follow
the steps in the order given to eliminate the most common problems encountered.
If some steps are unnecessary, skip ahead to the step that follows.
Tools Required
The only tool you will need to install components and perform maintainance is a
Philips screwdriver.
6-1
Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very
carefully. The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment
from ESD 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 motherboard, add-on cards 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 motherboard.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

Control Panel
The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected to the
JF1 connector on the motherboard to provide you with system control buttons and
status indicators. These wires have been bundled together in a ribbon cable to
simplify the connection. Connect the cable from JF1 on the motherboard to JP4
on the Control Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs
into pin 1 on both JF1 and JP4. Pull all excess cabling out of the airflow path. The
LEDs inform you of system status. See Chapter 3 for details on the LEDs and the
control panel buttons. Details on JF1 can be found in Chapter 5.
6-3
System Fans
Both systems use 4-cm counter-rotating fans to provide cooling. The 5015M-MR(+)
and the 5015M-MF(+) both have two sets of these fans. Each fan unit is actually
made up of two fans joined back-to-back, which rotate in opposite directions. This
counter-rotating action generates exceptional airflow and works to dampen vibration levels. These fans can adjust their speed according to the heat level sensed
in the system, which results in more efficient and quieter fan operation. Fan speed
is controlled by a setting in BIOS (see Chapter 7). Each fan in a set has its own
separate tachometer.
It is very important that the chassis top cover is properly installed for the airflow to
circulate properly through the chassis and cool the components.
System Fan Failure
If a fan fails, the remaining fans will ramp up to full speed and the overheat/fan
fail LED on the control panel will blink on and off. Replace any failed fan at your
earliest convenience with the same type and model (the system can continue to run
with a failed fan). Remove the top chassis cover while the system is still running
to determine which of the two fan units has failed. Then power down the system
before replacing a fan. Removing the power cord(s) is also recommended as a
safety precaution.
6-3
SUPERSERVER 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) User's Manual
Replacing System Cooling Fans
1. Removing a fan
With the system powered down, first remove the chassis cover (refer to page 6-7).
Grasp the failed fan unit and lift it out of the chassis. See Figure 6-3a and 6-3b.
2. Installing a new fan
Replace the failed fan with an identical 4-cm, 12 volt fan (available from Supermicro:
p/n FAN-0087). Push the new fan into the vacant space in the housing while making sure the arrows on the top of the fan (indicating air direction) point in the same
direction as the arrows on the other fans. Reposition the fan housing back over
the two mounting posts in the chassis, then reconnect the fan wires to the same
chassis fan headers you removed them from. Power up the system and check that
the fan is working properly and that the LED on the control panel has turned off.
Finish by replacing the chassis cover.

Drive Bay Installation/Removal
Accessing the Drive Bays
CD-ROM/Serial ATA Drives: For installing or removing the CD-ROM or Serial ATA
drive, you will need to gain access to the inside of the server by removing the top
cover of the chassis. Note that the 5015M-MF(+) does not include a CD-ROM
drive.
Note: Only a "slim" CD-ROM will fit in the 5015M-MR(+).
Serial ATA Drive Installation
The SATA drive is not hot-swappable, meaning system power must be turned off
before installing or removing.
To install or remove the drive, first power down the system and then remove the
top cover of the chassis as described on page 6-7. Unscrew the retention screw
at the top center of the drive, then push the drive tray out from the back until you
can grasp and pull it out through the front of the chassis. Remove the drive from
the drive tray.
To add a new SATA drive, install a drive into the tray with the printed circuit board
side facing down and so that the mounting holes align with those in the tray. Secure
the drive to the tray with the four screws. Replace the top cover when finished.
See Figure 6-4.

SUPERSERVER 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) User's Manual
CD-ROM Drive Installation (5015M-MR(+))
The top cover of the chassis must be opened to gain full access to the CD-ROM
drive bay. The CD-ROM must have a "slim" profile to fit into the 5015M-MR(+). If
you cannot remove the top cover with the system remaining in the rack, follow the
procedure below.
First, shutdown the system and disconnect all cables from the back of the server
chassis. Make sure the system is supported from underneath then remove the
front bracket screws that secure the unit to the rack. Carefully lift the server out
of the rack.
Open the cover by following the procedure described on page 6-7. You must power
down the system before installing or removing CD-ROM or Serial ATA drives. Remove the two screws that secure the CD-ROM drive to the chassis and then lift the
drive out of the chassis. See Figure 6-4.
Note: A red mark on a wire typically designates the location of pin 1.
The CD-ROM may only be used as a Master IDE device.

Power Supply
The SuperServer 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) has a single 260 watt power supply.
This power supply has the capability of operating at 100 - 240 input volts. Power
down the system and then unplug the AC power cord to completely remove power
from the system before removing the power supply.
Power Supply Failure
If the power supply unit fails, the system will shut down and you will need to replace
the power supply unit. Replacement units can be ordered directly from Supermicro
(PWS-0055 - see contact infomation in Chapter 1).
Replacing the Power Supply
1. Accessing the inside of the system
To replace a power supply, you must first remove the top chassis cover. To do
so, first release the retention screws that secure the unit to the rack. Grasp the
two handles on either side and pull the unit straight out until it locks (you will hear
a "click"). Next, remove the screws from the lips on either side of the cover then
depress the two buttons on the cover to release it. Push the cover away from
you then lift it from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server (see
Figure 2-6).
2. Removing the power supply
First unplug the power cord from the system. To remove the failed power unit,
remove the two screws on the back of the power supply and a third from the front
of the power supply, which secures it to the bottom of the chassis. You can then
lift the unit straight out of the chassis. (The power cord should have already been
removed.)
3. Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed unit with another unit of the same wattage. It is highly recommended to replace it with the exact same power supply. Carefully insert the new
unit into position in the chassis and secure it with the two screws at the rear of the
unit and the third at the front. Then reconnect the power cord, replace the chassis
top cover and push the unit back into the rack. Finish by turning the power switch
on the power supply on, and then depress the power button on the front of the
system.

Note: Due to periodic changes to the BIOS, some settings may have been added or
deleted and might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer to the Manual
Download area of the Supermicro web site <http://www.supermicro.com> for any
changes to BIOS that may not be reflected in this manual.
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating BIOS to prevent
possible boot failure.
System BIOS
The BIOS is the Basic Input Output System used in all IBM® PC, XT™, AT®, and
PS/2® compatible computers. The Phoenix BIOS flash chip stores the system parameters, such type of disk drives, video displays, etc. in the CMOS. The CMOS
memory requires very little electrical power. When the computer is turned off, a
backup battery provides power to the BIOS flash chip, enabling it to retain system
parameters. Each time the computer is powered-on the computer is configured
with the values stored in the BIOS ROM by the system BIOS, which gains control
at boot-up.
How To Change the Configuration Data
The CMOS information that determines the system parameters may be changed by
entering the BIOS Setup utility. This Setup utility can be accessed by pressing the
<Delete> key at the appropriate time during system boot, see below.
Starting the Setup Utility
Normally, the only visible POST (Power On Self Test) routine is the memory test. As
the memory is being tested, press the <Delete> key to enter the main menu of the
BIOS Setup utility. From the main menu, you can access the other setup screens,
such as the Security and Power menus. Beginning with Section 7-3, detailed descriptions are given for each parameter setting in the Setup utility.

BIOS POST Codes
This section lists the POST (Power On Self Test) codes for the PhoenixBIOS. POST
codes are divided into two categories: recoverable and terminal.
Recoverable POST Errors
When a recoverable type of error occurs during POST, the BIOS will display an
POST code that describes the problem.
BIOS may also issue one of the follow-
ing beep codes:
1 long and two short beeps - video configuration error
1 continuous long beep - overheat (Overheat LED will be on)
1 long beep and 1 short pause - memory not detected
Terminal POST Errors
If a terminal type of error occurs, BIOS will shut down the system. Before doing so,
BIOS will write the error to port 80h, attempt to initialize video and write the error
in the top left corner of the screen.
The following is a list of codes that may be written to port 80h.

If the BIOS detects error 2C, 2E, or 30 (base 512K RAM error), it displays an additional
word-bitmap (xxxx) indicating the address line or bits that failed. For example, “2C
0002” means address line 1 (bit one set) has failed. “2E 1020" means data bits 12
and 5 (bits 12 and 5 set) have failed in the lower 16 bits. The BIOS also sends the
bitmap to the port-80 LED display. It first displays the checkpoint code, followed by
a delay, the high-order byte, another delay, and then the loworder byte of the error.
It repeats this sequence continuously.

Appendix C: Software Installation
Appendix C
Software Installation
After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure Intel's ICH7R
SATA RAID before you install the Windows Operating System and other software
drivers.
If you do not wish to configure onboard SATA RAID functions, please go directly to
Section C-4 for Operating System & Other Software Installation.
C-1 Introduction to Serial ATA and Parallel ATA
To configure the SATA RAID functions, you must first use the Intel ICH7R SATA
RAID Utility program to configure the RAID Level that you desire before installing
the Windows XP/2000/2003 operating system and other software drivers. (The
necessary drivers are all included on the Super Micro CD that came packaged with
your motherboard.) Note that the current version of the ICH7R SATA RAID Utility
can only support Windows XP/2000/2003 Operating Systems.
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface that uses a single cable with a
minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between devices. It is
a serial link, which supports transfer rates up to 3Gbps. Because the serial cables
used in SATA are thinner than the traditional cables used in Parallel ATA (PATA),
SATA systems have better airflow and can be installed in smaller chassis than
Parallel ATA. In addition, the cables used in PATA are limited to a length of 40cm,
while Serial ATA cables can be up to one meter in length. Overall, SATA provides
better functionality than PATA.
Introduction to Intel ICH7R Serial RAID
Located in the South Bridge of the E7230 Mukilteo chipset, the I/O Controller Hub
(ICH7R) provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of the system. It supports a 2-channel UltraATA/100 Bus Master IDE controller (PATA) and four Serial
ATA (SATA) ports. The ICH7R supports the following PATA and SATA device configurations: Legacy mode and Native mode.
C-1
SUPERSERVER 5015M-MR(+)/5015M-MF(+) User's Manual
RAID Configurations
The following types of RAID configurations are supported:
RAID 0 (Data Striping): this writes data in parallel, interleaved ("striped") sections
of two hard drives. Data transfer rate is doubled over using a single disk.
RAID1 (Data Mirroring): an identical data image from one drive is copied to another
drive. The second drive must be the same size or larger than the first drive.
RAID 10 (Striping & Mirroring): RAID 0 and 1 schemes are combined (without parity
information) to get the benefits of both.
RAID 5: both data and parity information are striped and mirrored across three or
more hard drives.
Intel Matrix Storage
The Intel Matrix Storage, supported by the ICH7R, allows the user to create
RAID 0 and RAID1 set by using only two identical hard disk drives. The Intel
Matrix Storage Technology creates two partitions on each hard disk drive and
generate a virtual RAID0 and RAID1sets. It also allows you the change the HDD
partition size without any data.
Configuring BIOS settings for SATA RAID Functions (Native Mode)
1. Press the <Del> key during system bootup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If it is the first time powering on the system, we recommend you load the
