Server Installation
2-1
Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 6027B-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 SuperServer 6027B-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 SuperServer 6027BURF. 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 box the SuperServer 6027B-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.
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.
2-1
SUPERSERVER 6027B-URF User's Manual
•
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

!
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.
•
Allow any hot plug 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.
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
This section provides information on installing the SC825 chassis into a rack unit
with the quick-release rails provided. 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.
Note: This rail will fit a rack between 26" and 33.5" deep.
Separating the Sections of the Rack Rails
The chassis package includes two 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.
Installing the Inner Rail Extension
The SC825 chassis includes a set of inner rails in two sections: inner rails and inner
rail extensions. The inner rails are pre-attached to the chassis, and do not interfere
with normal use of the chassis if you decide not to use a server rack. The inner rail
extension is attached to the inner rail to mount the chassis in the rack.
Installing the Inner Rails
1. Place the inner rail extensions on the side of the chassis aligning the hooks
of the chassis with the rail extension holes. Make sure the extension faces
"outward" just like the pre-attached inner rail.
2. Slide the extension toward the front of the chassis.
3. Secure the chassis with 2 screws as illustrated. Repeat steps for the other
inner rail extension.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm
and the SuperServer 6027B-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
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.

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 (CR2032). 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.
•
4-2
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 6027B-URF clean and free of clutter.
•
The 6027B-URF weighs approximately 57 lbs (25.9 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.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
•
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.
4-3
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.

Advanced Serverboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to the
X9DBU-iF 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 sufficiently.
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.

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.
Notes:
•
Always connect the power cord last and always remove it before adding, removing or changing any hardware components. Make sure that you install the
processor into the CPU socket before you install the CPU heatsink.
•
If you buy a CPU separately, make sure that you use an Intel-certified multidirectional heatsink only.
•
Make sure to install the serverboard into the chassis before you install the CPU
heatsinks.
•
When receiving a serverboard without a processor pre-installed, make sure that
the plastic CPU socket cap is in place and none of the socket pins are bent;
otherwise, contact your retailer immediately.
•
Refer to the Supermicro web site for updates on CPU support.

5. Align the CPU key, which is a semicircle cutout, against the socket
key, which is the notch below the
gold color dot on the side of the
socket.
6. Align pin 1 of the CPU against pin 1
of the CPU socket.
7. Once both CPU and the socket are
aligned, carefully lower the CPU
straight down into the socket. (To
avoid damaging the CPU or the
socket, do not rub the CPU against
the surface of the socket or its
pins.)
8. With the CPU inside the socket,
inspect the four corners of the CPU
to make sure that the CPU is properly installed.
9. Once the CPU is securely seated
on the socket, lower the CPU load
plate to the socket.
10. Use your thumb to gently push the
socket clip down to the clip lock.
Warning: Please save the plastic cap.
The serverboard must be shipped with
the plastic cap properly installed to
protect the CPU socket pins. Shipment

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 connector locations noted) should be connected. See the serverboard layout diagram in this chapter for connector locations.
•
SATA cables (I-SATA0-5)
•
SAS cables (connect to optional UIO SAS controller card)
•
Control Panel cable (JF1, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The X9DBU-iF has a 24-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 connectors at JPW2,
JPW3 and JPW4.
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.
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.
See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for details and pin descriptions of JF1.
