Chapter 2
Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 6014L-M 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 6014L-M 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 server 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 6014L-M. 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 6014L-M 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 6014L-M 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).
!
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.
2-2
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.).

Installing the System into a Rack
(Rack hardware optional)
This section provides information on installing the SuperServer 6014L-M 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 6014L-M 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).
Figure 2-1. Installing the Server into a Rack: Basic
2-4
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.

SUPERSERVER 6014L-M User's Manual
Figure 2-2. Installing Chassis Rails
Installing the Rack Rails
Determine where you want to place the 6014L-M 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.

(w/ Optional Rackmount Kit)
Installing the Server into a Telco Rack
If you are installing the SuperServer 6014L-M into a Telco type rack, follow the directions given on the previous pages for rack installation. The only difference in the
installation procedure will be the positioning of the rack brackets to the rack. They
should be spaced apart just enough to accomodate the width of the telco rack.

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After you install the 6014L-M in the rack, you will need to open the unit to make sure
the serverboard is properly installed and all the connections have been made.
1. Accessing the inside of the server (Figure 2-6)
First, 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 CPUs (processors)
You may have one or two processors already installed into the system board.
Each processor should have its own heatsink attached. See Chapter 5 for
instructions on processor installation.
3. Check the system memory
Your 6014L-M 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
Refer to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a CD-ROM 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).

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from
harm and the SuperServer 6014L-M 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 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 6014L-M User's Manual
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.
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.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
Keep the area around the SuperServer 6014L-M clean and free of clutter.
The SuperServer 6014L-M weighs approximately 23 lbs. (10.5 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.
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.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
4-3
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.

to the X6DLP-EG2 serverboard, connect the data and power cables and install
add-on cards. All serverboard jumpers and connections are described and a layout
and quick reference chart are included in this chapter. Remember to close the
chassis completely when you have finished working on the serverboard to protect
and cool the system.
5-1
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.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

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 ribbon 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 keep them routed 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 figure in this
chapter for connector locations.
Serial ATA cables (I-SATA0, I-SATA1)
CD-ROM cable (IDE1)
USB cable (USB2/3)
Control panel cable (JF1, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The X6DLP-EG2 has a 24-pin primary ATX power supply connector designated
"PW1" for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate connector
from the power supply to the PW1 connector to supply power to the serverboard.
The power connector at PW2 must also be connected to your power supply. See the
Connector Definitions section in this chapter for power connector pin definitions.
5-6
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
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.
Note that even and odd numbered pins are on opposite sides of each header.
All JF1 wires have been bundled into single ribbon cable to simplify their connection.
Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the board. The other end
connects to the Control Panel printed circuit board, located just behind the system
status LEDs in the chassis. See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter
for details and pin descriptions of JF1.

Advanced Chassis Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform maintenance on the SC512LF-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
Electric Static 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 serverboard, 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 serverboard.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

SUPERSERVER 6014L-M User's Manual
Figure 6-1. Chassis Views: 5015M-MR
6-2
Control Panel
The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected to the
JF1 connector on the serverboard 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 serverboard to the
Control Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs into pin
1 on both connectors. 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
The 6014L-M uses two 4-cm fans to provide cooling. 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 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.
6-2
Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
System Fan Failure
If a fan fails, the remaining fan 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 fans have failed. Then power down the system before replacing a fan. Removing the power cord is also recommended as a safety
precaution.
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 6-2.
2. Installing a new fan
Replace the failed fan with an identical 4-cm, 12 volt fan (available from Supermicro:
p/n FAN-0061). 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: Only a "slim" CD-ROM will fit in the 6014L-M.
Serial ATA Drive Installation
The SATA drive is not hot-swappable, meaning system power must be turned off
before installing or removing it. The CD-ROM drive needs to be removed first to
gain access to the hard drive.
To install or remove the hard drive, first power down the system and then remove
the top cover of the chassis as described on page 6-7. Then remove the CD-ROM
drive by removing the two screws that secure it to the chassis (one screw comes
in from the side of the chassis and the other screws straight down into a standoff
through the drive bracket). Disconnect the CD-ROM drive's power and data cables
then lift the CD-ROM drive out of the chassis.
6-4
Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
The hard drive that sits below the CD-ROM is now accessible. Remove the four
screws from the bottom of the chassis that secure the drive, then lift the hard drive
out. 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 through the bottom of the chassis.
Replace the CD-ROM drive (including reconnecting the power and data cables) and
finally the top cover when finished. See Figure 6-3.
CD-ROM Drive Installation
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 6014L-M. 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 (one screw
comes in from the side of the chassis and the other screws straight down into a
standoff) then lift the drive out of the chassis. See Figure 6-3.
Note: A red mark on a wire typically designates the location of pin 1.

Power Supply
The SuperServer 6014L-M 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).
6-6
Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
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.

Introduction
This chapter describes the AMIBIOS Setup Utility for the X6DLP-EG2. The AMI
ROM BIOS is stored in a Flash EEPROM and can be easily upgraded using a floppy
disk-based program. This chapter describes the basic navigation of the AMIBIOS
Setup Utility setup screens.
Starting the BIOS Setup Utility
To enter the AMIBIOS Setup Utility screens, hit the <Delete> key while the system
is booting up.
Each main BIOS menu option is described in this user’s guide. The Main BIOS
setup menu screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the options
that can be configured. “Grayed-out” options cannot be configured while options in
blue can be configured by the user. The right frame displays the key legend. Above
the key legend is an area reserved for a text message. When an option is selected
in the left frame, it is highlighted in white. Often a text message will accompany it.
(Note: AMI BIOS has default text messages built-in. Supermicro retains the option
to include, omit, or change any of these text messages.)
The AMIBIOS Setup Utility uses a key-based navigation system (hot keys). Most
of these hot keys can be used at any time during the setup navigation process.
These keys include <F1>, <F10>, <Enter>, <ESC>, arrow keys, and Esc. Options
printed in Bold are the default settings.
How To Change the Configuration Data
The configuration data that determines the system parameters may be changed by
entering the AMI BIOS Setup utility. This Setup utility can be accessed by pressing
<Del> at the appropriate time during system boot.
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 AMI BIOS Setup Utility. From the main menu, you can access the other setup
screens. An AMIBIOS identification string is displayed at the left bottom corner of
the screen, below the copyright message.
Warning!! To prevent a possible boot failure, do not shut down or reset the system
while updating BIOS..

During the POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines, which are performed each time
the system is powered on, errors may occur.
Non-fatal errors are those which, in most cases, allow the system to continue the
boot-up process. The error messages normally appear on the screen.
Fatal errors are those which will not allow the system to continue the boot-up procedure. If a fatal error occurs, you should consult with your system manufacturer
for possible repairs.
These fatal errors are usually communicated through a series of audible beeps.
The numbers on the fatal error list, on the following page, correspond to the number
of beeps for the corresponding error. All errors listed, with the exception of Beep
Code 8, are fatal errors.

Appendix C: Software Installation
Appendix C
Software Installation
After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure the Adaptec
Embedded Serial ATA RAID driver before you install the Windows operating system.
The necessary drivers are all included on the Supermicro bootable CDs that came
packaged with your serverboard.
The following section provides information on Adaptec's SATA RAID driver based
on the Intel ICH5R/6300ESB controller.
C-1
Introduction
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. SATA
is a serial link that supports transfer rates from 150MBps. Because the SATA cables
are thinner than the traditional cables used for Parallel ATA (PATA), SATA systems
have better airflow and can be installed in smaller chassis than PATA. In addition,
PATA cables can only extend to 40 cm long, while SATA cables can extend up to
one meter. Overall, Serial ATA provides better functionality than Parallel ATA.
Intel 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub
Located in the South Bridge of Intel's E7520 chipset, the 6300ESB I/O controller
hub provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of the system. It supports
a dual-channel Ultra ATA/100 Bus Master IDE controller (PATA) and two Serial ATA
(SATA) Host controllers, which can support up to two Serial ATA ports and two RAID
drives. The 6300ESB I/O controller hub supports the following Parallel ATA and
Serial ATA device configurations:
C-1
SUPERSERVER 6014L-M User's Manual

Press <Ctrl><A> for the Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility.
Adaptec SATA HostRAID Controller Driver
Adaptec's Embedded SATA RAID with HostRAID controller adds RAID functionality
to the SATA I/O controller and enhances the performance of PCI-Express based
products. RAID striping (RAID 0) allows data to be written across across multiple
drives, greatly improving hard disk I/O performance. RAID mirroring (RAID 1) allows data to be simultaneously written to two drives, improving data security even
if a single hard disk fails. By incorporating Adaptec's Embedded SATA into the
serverboard design, the X6DLP-EG2 offers the user the benefits of SATA RAID
without the high costs associated with hardware RAID applications.
Note: For instructions on installing Adaptec's RAID driver, please refer to the
Adaptec RAID Controller User's Guide ("Emb_SA_RAID_UG.pdf") in the CD that
came with the serverboard. You can also download a copy of Adaptec's User's
Guide from our web site at www.supermicro.com.

Note: do not use the delete key to delete the bootable array.
Initializing Disk Drives
If an installed disk does not appear in the disk selection list for creating a new array
or if it appears grayed out, you may have to initialize it before you can use it as
part of an array. Drives attached to the controller must be initialized before they
can be used in an array.
Caution: Initializing a disk overwrites the partition table on the disk and makes any
data on the disk inaccessible. If the drive is used in an array, you may not be able
to use the array again.
Do not initialize a disk that is part of a boot array. To determine which disks are
associated with a particular array, please refer to Viewing Array Properties.
