Operations
Power up the server blade
The Onboard Administrator initiates an automatic power-up sequence when the server blade is installed. If
the default setting is changed, use one of the following methods to power up the server blade:
•
Use a virtual power button selection through iLO 2.
•
Press and release the Power On/Standby button.
When the server blade goes from the standby mode to the full power mode, the system power LED changes
from amber to green.
For more information about the Onboard Administrator, see the enclosure setup and installation guide on the
HP website (http://www.hp.com/support).
For more information about iLO 2, see "Integrated Lights-Out 2 technology (on page 62)."
Power down the server blade
Before powering down the server blade for any upgrade or maintenance procedures, perform a backup of
critical server data and programs.
Depending on the Onboard Administrator configuration, use one of the following methods to power down
the server blade:
•
Use a virtual power button selection through iLO 2.
This method initiates a controlled remote shutdown of applications and the OS before the server blade
enters standby mode.
•
Press and release the Power On/Standby button.
This method initiates a controlled shutdown of applications and the OS before the server blade enters
standby mode.
•
Press and hold the Power On/Standby button for more than 4 seconds to force the server blade to enter
standby mode.
This method forces the server blade to enter standby mode without properly exiting applications and the
OS. It provides an emergency shutdown method if an application stops responding.
•
Execute one of the following commands using the Onboard Administrator CLI:
poweroff server [bay number]
or
poweroff server [bay number] force
The first command initiates a controlled shutdown of applications and the OS before the server blade
enters standby mode. The second form of the command forces the server blade to enter standby mode
without exiting applications and the OS. This emergency method forces a shutdown if an application
stops responding.
•
Use the Onboard Administrator GUI to initiate a shutdown:
Operations

Memory options
IMPORTANT: This server blade does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to
mix these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
Hardware options installation
27
The memory subsystem in this server blade can support RDIMMs or UDIMMs. Both types are referred to as
DIMMs when the information applies to both types. When specified as RDIMM or UDIMM, the information
applies to that type only. All memory installed in the server blade must be the same type.
The server blade supports the following DIMM speeds:
•
Single- and dual-rank PC3-10600 (DDR-1333) DIMMs operating at 1333 and 1066 MHz
•
Quad-rank PC3-8500 (DDR-1067) DIMMs operating at 1066 MHz
Depending on the processor model, the number of DIMMs installed, and whether UDIMMs or RDIMMs are
installed, the memory clock speed may be reduced to 1066 or 800 MHz. For more information on the effect
of DIMM slot population, see "General DIMM slot population guidelines (on page 31)."
Memory subsystem architecture
The memory subsystem in this server blade is divided into channels. Each processor supports three channels,
and each channel supports two DIMM slots, as shown in the following table.
Channel
Slot
Slot number
1
D
A

This multi-channel architecture provides enhanced performance in Advanced ECC mode. This architecture
also enables the Mirrored Memory and Lockstep memory modes. This server blade supports both Registered
PC3 DIMMs (RDIMMs) and Unbuffered DIMMs (UDIMMs).
DIMM slots in this server are identified by number and by letter. Letters identify the slots to populate for
specific AMP modes. Slot numbers are reported by ROM messages during boot and for error reporting.
Single-, dual-, and quad-rank DIMMs
To understand and configure memory protection modes properly, an understanding of single-, dual-, and
quad-rank DIMMs is helpful. Some DIMM configuration requirements are based on these classifications.
A single-rank DIMM has one set of memory chips that is accessed while writing to or reading from the
memory. A dual-rank DIMM is similar to having two single-rank DIMMs on the same module, with only one
rank accessible at a time. A quad-rank DIMM is, effectively, two dual-rank DIMMs on the same module. Only
one rank is accessible at a time. The server blade memory control subsystem selects the proper rank within
the DIMM when writing to or reading from the DIMM.
Dual- and quad-rank DIMMs provide the greatest capacity with the existing memory technology. For
example, if current DRAM technology supports 2-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM would be 4-GB,
and a quad-rank DIMM would be 8-GB.
DIMM identification
IMPORTANT: This server blade does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to
mix these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
Hardware options installation

The memory subsystem may be populated with either RDIMMs or UDIMMs, but mixing the two types is not
supported. To determine DIMM characteristics, use the label attached to the DIMM and the following
illustration and table.

Memory configurations
To optimize server blade availability, the server blade supports the following AMP modes:
•
Advanced ECC—provides the greatest memory capacity for a given DIMM size, while providing up to
4-bit error correction. This mode is the default option for this server blade.
•
Mirrored Memory—provides maximum protection against failed DIMMs. Uncorrectable errors in one
channel are corrected by the mirror channel.
•
Lockstep—provides enhanced protection while making all installed memory available to the operating
system. The server blade can continue to function if a single- or multi-bit memory failure within a single
DRAM device occurs.
Advanced Memory Protection options are configured in RBSU. If the requested AMP mode is not supported
by the installed DIMM configuration, the server blade boots in Advanced ECC mode. For more information,
see "HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (on page 58)."

UDIMM maximum memory configurations
The server blade supports a maximum of 12 GB with one processor and 24 GB with two processors using
2-GB single- or dual-rank UDIMMs.
Advanced ECC memory configuration
Advanced ECC memory is the default memory protection mode for this server blade. Standard ECC can
correct single-bit memory errors and detect multi-bit memory errors. When multi-bit errors are detected using
Standard ECC, the error is signaled to the server blade and causes the server blade to halt.
Advanced ECC protects the server blade against some multi-bit memory errors. Advanced ECC can correct
both single-bit memory errors and 4-bit memory errors if all failed bits are on the same DRAM device on the
DIMM.
Advanced ECC provides additional protection over Standard ECC because it is possible to correct certain
memory errors that would otherwise be uncorrected and result in a server blade failure. The server blade
provides notification that correctable error events have exceeded a pre-defined threshold rate.
Mirrored memory configuration
Mirroring provides protection against uncorrected memory errors that would otherwise result in server blade
downtime. Mirroring is performed at the channel level. Channels 1 and 2 are used; channel 3 is not
populated.
Data is written to both memory channels. Data is read from one of the two memory channels. If an
uncorrectable error is detected in the active memory channel, data is retrieved from the mirror channel. This
channel becomes the new active channel, and the system disables the channel with the failed DIMM.
Lockstep memory configuration
Lockstep mode provides protection against multi-bit memory errors that occur on the same DRAM device.
Lockstep mode can correct any single DRAM device failure on x4 and x8 DIMM types. The DIMMs in each
channel must have identical HP part numbers.
Lockstep mode uses channel 1 and channel 2. Channel 3 is not populated. Because channel 3 cannot be
populated when using Lockstep mode, the maximum memory capacity is lower than Advanced ECC mode.
Memory performance with Advanced ECC is also slightly higher.

General DIMM slot population guidelines
Observe the following guidelines for all AMP modes:
•
Populate DIMM slots for a processor only if the processor is installed.
•
To maximize performance in multi-processor configurations, distribute the total memory capacity
between all processors as evenly as possible.
•
Do not mix Unbuffered and Registered PC3 DIMMs.
•
Each channel supports up to two Unbuffered DIMMs.
•
If quad-rank DIMMs are installed for a processor, a maximum of two DIMMs can be installed on each
channel for that processor.
If a channel contains quad-rank DIMMs, the quad-rank DIMM must be installed first on that channel.
DIMM speeds are supported as indicated in the following table.

HP BladeSystem c-Class Advanced management
iLO 2 is a standard component of ProLiant c-Class server blades that provides server health and remote server
blade manageability. Its features are accessed from a network client device using a supported web browser.
In addition to other features, iLO 2 provides keyboard, mouse, and video (text and graphics) capability for
a server blade, regardless of the state of the host OS or host server blade.
iLO 2 includes an intelligent microprocessor, secure memory, and a dedicated network interface. This design
makes iLO 2 independent of the host server blade and its OS. iLO 2 provides remote access to any
authorized network client, sends alerts, and provides other server blade management functions.
Using a supported web browser, you can:
•
Remotely access the console of the host server blade, including all text mode and graphics mode
screens with full keyboard and mouse controls.
•
Remotely power up, power down, or reboot the host server blade.
•
Remotely boot a host server blade to a virtual media image to perform a ROM upgrade or install an OS.
•
Send alerts from iLO 2 regardless of the state of the host server blade.
•
Access advanced troubleshooting features provided by iLO 2.
•
Launch a web browser, use SNMP alerting, and diagnose the server blade with HP SIM.
•
Configure static IP bay settings for the dedicated iLO 2 management NICs on each server blade in an
enclosure for faster deployment.
To connect to the server blade using iLO 2, install the server blade in an enclosure. Onboard Administrator
assigns an IP address to enable iLO 2 connectivity to the server blade.
Software and configuration utilities

Network-based PXE deployment
PXE is a component of the Intel® WfM specification. The PXE model enables server blades to load and
execute an NBP from a PXE server and to execute a pre-configured image. The image can be an OS image
created by software utilities or a boot diskette image. This feature enables a user to configure a server blade
and install an OS over a network.
Deployment overview
When a PXE-enabled target server blade boots, it obtains an IP address from a DHCP server. The target
server blade obtains the name of the NBP from the appropriate boot server. Then, the target server blade uses
TFTP to download the NBP from the boot server and executes the image.
IMPORTANT: To connect to a network with a Pass-Thru module, always connect the Pass-Thru
module to a network device that supports Gigabit speed.
For each server blade being deployed, the PXE server must be connected to the NIC designated for PXE. The
server blade defaults PXE functions to NIC 1, but any of the NC series NICs in the server blade can be
designated for PXE in RBSU. For NIC connector locations, refer to the documentation included with the server
blade.
NOTE: Actual NIC numeration depends on several factors, including the OS installed on the
server blade.
To deploy an OS to multiple server blades, install a PXE deployment server on a network.
Deployment infrastructure
IMPORTANT: To connect to a network with a Pass-Thru module, always connect the Pass-Thru
module to a network device that supports Gigabit speed.

Management tools
Automatic Server Recovery
ASR is a feature that causes the system to restart when a catastrophic operating system error occurs, such as
a blue screen, ABEND, or panic. A system fail-safe timer, the ASR timer, starts when the System Management
driver, also known as the Health Driver, is loaded. When the operating system is functioning properly, the
system periodically resets the timer. However, when the operating system fails, the timer expires and restarts
the server.
ASR increases server availability by restarting the server within a specified time after a system hang or
shutdown. At the same time, the HP SIM console notifies you by sending a message to a designated pager
number that ASR has restarted the system. You can disable ASR from the HP SIM console or through RBSU.
ROMPaq utility
The ROMPaq utility enables you to upgrade the system firmware (BIOS). To upgrade the firmware, insert a
ROMPaq USB Key into an available USB port and boot the system. In addition to ROMPaq, Online Flash
Components for Windows and Linux operating systems are available for updating the system firmware.
The ROMPaq utility checks the system and provides a choice (if more than one exists) of available firmware
revisions.

Erase Utility
CAUTION: Perform a backup before running the System Erase Utility. The utility sets the system
to its original factory state, deletes the current hardware configuration information, including
array setup and disk partitioning, and erases all connected hard drives completely. Refer to the
instructions for using this utility.
Run the Erase Utility if you must erase the system for the following reasons:
•
You want to install a new operating system on a server blade with an existing operating system.
•
You encounter an error when completing the steps of a factory-installed operating system installation.
To access the Erase Utility, use the System Erase button on the home screen of the SmartStart CD ("SmartStart
software" on page 57).
Redundant ROM support
The server enables you to upgrade or configure the ROM safely with redundant ROM support. The server has
a 8-MB ROM that acts as two, separate 4-MB ROMs. In the standard implementation, one side of the ROM
contains the current ROM program version, while the other side of the ROM contains a backup version.
NOTE: The server ships with the same version programmed on each side of the ROM.
Safety and security benefits
When you flash the system ROM, ROMPaq writes over the backup ROM and saves the current ROM as a
backup, enabling you to switch easily to the alternate ROM version if the new ROM becomes corrupted for
any reason. This feature protects the existing ROM version, even if you experience a power failure while
flashing the ROM.

Symptom information
Before troubleshooting a server problem, collect the following information:
•
What events preceded the failure? After which steps does the problem occur?
•
What has been changed since the time the server was working?
•
Did you recently add or remove hardware or software? If so, did you remember to change the
appropriate settings in the server setup utility, if necessary?
•
How long has the server exhibited problem symptoms?
•
If the problem occurs randomly, what is the duration or frequency?
To answer these questions, the following information may be useful:
•
Run HP Insight Diagnostics (on page 64) and use the survey page to view the current configuration or
to compare it to previous configurations.
•
Refer to your hardware and software records for information.
•
Refer to server LEDs and their statuses.
Prepare the server for diagnosis
1.
Be sure the server is in the proper operating environment with adequate power, air conditioning, and
humidity control. For required environmental conditions, see the server documentation.
2.
Record any error messages displayed by the system.
3.
Remove all diskettes, CD-ROMs, DVD-ROMs, and USB drive keys.
4.
Power down the server and peripheral devices if you will be diagnosing the server offline. If possible,
always perform an orderly shutdown:
a. Exit any applications.
b. Exit the operating system.
c.
Power down the server ("Power down the server blade" on page 11).
5.
Disconnect any peripheral devices not required for testing (any devices not necessary to power up the
server). Do not disconnect the printer if you want to use it to print error messages.
6.
Collect all tools and utilities, such as a Torx screwdriver, loopback adapters, ESD wrist strap, and
software utilities, necessary to troubleshoot the problem.
o
You must have the appropriate Health Drivers and Management Agents installed on the server.
To verify the server configuration, connect to the System Management homepage and select Version
Control Agent. The VCA gives you a list of names and versions of all installed HP drivers,
Management Agents, and utilities, and whether they are up-to-date.
Troubleshooting
70
o
HP recommends you have access to the server documentation for server-specific information.
o
HP recommends you have access to the SmartStart CD for value-added software and drivers
required during the troubleshooting process. Download the current version of SmartStart from the
HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/smartstart).
Performing processor procedures in the troubleshooting process
Before performing any troubleshooting steps that involve processors, review the following guidelines:
•
Be sure that only authorized personnel perform the troubleshooting steps that involve installing,
removing, or replacing a processor.
•
Always locate the documentation for your processor model before performing any steps that require
installing, removing, or replacing a processor. If you cannot locate the hard copy of the instructions that
shipped with the processor, see the processor ("Processor option" on page 22) instructions in this
document.
•
Some processor models require the use of a processor installation tool, and specific steps are
documented to ensure that you do not damage the processor or processor socket on the system board.
For server models that have pins inside the processor socket, remember that THE PINS ON THE SYSTEM
BOARD ARE VERY FRAGILE AND EASILY DAMAGED. If you damage the socket, you must replace the
system board.
•
Depending on the server blade model, the contacts may be on the processor or they may be inside the
processor socket. Never touch the contacts. THE PINS ON THE SYSTEM BOARD ARE VERY FRAGILE AND
EASILY DAMAGED. If the contacts inside the processor socket are damaged, the system board must be
replaced.
•
Always complete all other troubleshooting procedures before removing or replacing a processor.
Breaking the server down to the minimum hardware configuration
During the troubleshooting process, you may be asked to break the server down to the minimum hardware
configuration. A minimum configuration consists of only the components needed to boot the server and
successfully pass POST.
When requested to break the server down to the minimum configuration, uninstall the following components,
if installed:
•
All additional DIMMs
Leave only the minimum required to boot the server—either one DIMM or a pair of DIMMs. For more
information, see the memory guidelines in the server user guide.
•
All additional cooling fans, if applicable
For the minimum fan configuration, see the server user guide.
•
All additional power supplies, if applicable (leave one installed)
•
All hard drives
•
All optical drives (DVD-ROM, CD-ROM, and so forth)
•
All optional mezzanine cards
•
All expansion boards
Before removing the components, be sure to determine the minimum configuration for each component and
follow all guidelines in the server user guide.
Troubleshooting
71
Always use the recommended minimum configuration above before removing any processors. If you are
unable to isolate the issue with the configuration above, you will then remove all all but one of the additional
processors.
CAUTION: Before removing or replacing any processors, be sure to follow the guidelines
provided in "Performing processor procedures in the troubleshooting process (on page 71)."
Failure to follow the recommended guidelines can cause damage to the system board, requiring
replacement of the system board.
Loose connections
Action:
•
Be sure all power cords are securely connected.
•
Be sure all cables are properly aligned and securely connected for all external and internal
components.
•
Remove and check all data and power cables for damage. Be sure no cables have bent pins or
damaged connectors.
•
If a fixed cable tray is available for the server, be sure the cords and cables connected to the server are
routed correctly through the tray.
•
Be sure each device is properly seated. Avoid bending or flexing circuit boards when reseating
components.
•
If a device has latches, be sure they are completely closed and locked.
•
Check any interlock or interconnect LEDs that may indicate a component is not connected properly.
•
If problems continue to occur, remove and reinstall each device, checking the connectors and sockets
for bent pins or other damage.
Service notifications
To view the latest service notifications, refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/bizsupport). Select
the appropriate server model, and then click the Troubleshoot a Problem link on the product page.
Server health LEDs
Some server blades have an internal health LED and an external health LED, while other server blades have
a single system health LED. The system health LED provides the same functionality as the two separate internal
and external health LEDs. Depending on the model, the internal health LED and external health LED may
either appear solid or they may flash. Both conditions represent the same symptom.
For the location of server blade LEDs and information on their statuses, see the server blade documentation
on the HP website (http://www.hp.com/support).

Electrostatic discharge
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the system
or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage system
boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To
provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet when
standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller install
the part.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.

Customer Self Repair
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow for
greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period HP (or HP service
providers or service partners) identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR part, HP will
ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts:
•
Mandatory—Parts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these parts,
you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service.
Technical support
95
•
Optional—Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for customer
self repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, there may or may not be additional
charges, depending on the type of warranty service designated for your product.
NOTE: Some HP parts are not designed for customer self repair. In order to satisfy the customer warranty,
HP requires that an authorized service provider replace the part. These parts are identified as "No" in the
Illustrated Parts Catalog.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography permits.
If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help you over the
telephone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a defective part must
be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you must ship the defective
part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days. The defective part must be
returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective
part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping
and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used.
For more information about HP's Customer Self Repair program, contact your local service provider. For the
North American program, refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Réparation par le client (CSR)
Les produits HP comportent de nombreuses pièces CSR (Customer Self Repair = réparation par le client) afin
de minimiser les délais de réparation et faciliter le remplacement des pièces défectueuses. Si pendant la
période de diagnostic, HP (ou ses partenaires ou mainteneurs agréés) détermine que la réparation peut être
effectuée à l'aide d'une pièce CSR, HP vous l'envoie directement. Il existe deux catégories de pièces CSR:
Obligatoire - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est obligatoire. Si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, les coûts de déplacement et main d'œuvre du service vous seront facturés.
Facultatif - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est facultative. Ces pièces sont également
conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la réparation. Toutefois, si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, l'intervention peut ou non vous être facturée, selon le type de garantie applicable à
votre produit.
REMARQUE: Certaines pièces HP ne sont pas conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la
réparation. Pour que la garantie puisse s'appliquer, HP exige que le remplacement de la pièce soit effectué
par un Mainteneur Agréé. Ces pièces sont identifiées par la mention "Non" dans le Catalogue illustré.
Les pièces CSR sont livrées le jour ouvré suivant, dans la limite des stocks disponibles et selon votre situation
géographique. Si votre situation géographique le permet et que vous demandez une livraison le jour même
ou dans les 4 heures, celle-ci vous sera facturée. Pour bénéficier d'une assistance téléphonique, appelez le
Centre d'assistance technique HP. Dans les documents envoyés avec la pièce de rechange CSR, HP précise
s'il est nécessaire de lui retourner la pièce défectueuse. Si c'est le cas, vous devez le faire dans le délai
indiqué, généralement cinq (5) jours ouvrés. La pièce et sa documentation doivent être retournées dans
l'emballage fourni. Si vous ne retournez pas la pièce défectueuse, HP se réserve le droit de vous facturer les
coûts de remplacement. Dans le cas d'une pièce CSR, HP supporte l'ensemble des frais d'expédition et de
retour, et détermine la société de courses ou le transporteur à utiliser.
Pour plus d'informations sur le programme CSR de HP, contactez votre Mainteneur Agrée local. Pour plus

Riparazione da parte del cliente
Per abbreviare i tempi di riparazione e garantire una maggiore flessibilità nella sostituzione di parti
difettose, i prodotti HP sono realizzati con numerosi componenti che possono essere riparati direttamente
dal cliente (CSR, Customer Self Repair). Se in fase di diagnostica HP (o un centro di servizi o di assistenza
HP) identifica il guasto come riparabile mediante un ricambio CSR, HP lo spedirà direttamente al cliente per
la sostituzione. Vi sono due categorie di parti CSR:
Obbligatorie – Parti che devono essere necessariamente riparate dal cliente. Se il cliente ne affida la
riparazione ad HP, deve sostenere le spese di spedizione e di manodopera per il servizio.
Opzionali – Parti la cui riparazione da parte del cliente è facoltativa. Si tratta comunque di componenti
progettati per questo scopo. Se tuttavia il cliente ne richiede la sostituzione ad HP, potrebbe dover sostenere
spese addizionali a seconda del tipo di garanzia previsto per il prodotto.
NOTA: alcuni componenti HP non sono progettati per la riparazione da parte del cliente. Per rispettare la
garanzia, HP richiede che queste parti siano sostituite da un centro di assistenza autorizzato. Tali parti sono
identificate da un "No" nel Catalogo illustrato dei componenti.
In base alla disponibilità e alla località geografica, le parti CSR vengono spedite con consegna entro il
giorno lavorativo seguente. La consegna nel giorno stesso o entro quattro ore è offerta con un supplemento
di costo solo in alcune zone. In caso di necessità si può richiedere l'assistenza telefonica di un addetto del
centro di supporto tecnico HP. Nel materiale fornito con una parte di ricambio CSR, HP specifica se il cliente
deve restituire dei componenti. Qualora sia richiesta la resa ad HP del componente difettoso, lo si deve
spedire ad HP entro un determinato periodo di tempo, generalmente cinque (5) giorni lavorativi. Il
componente difettoso deve essere restituito con la documentazione associata nell'imballo di spedizione
fornito. La mancata restituzione del componente può comportare la fatturazione del ricambio da parte di HP.
Nel caso di riparazione da parte del cliente, HP sostiene tutte le spese di spedizione e resa e sceglie il
corriere/vettore da utilizzare.
Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma CSR di HP contattare il centro di assistenza di zona. Per il
programma in Nord America fare riferimento al sito Web HP (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Customer Self Repair
HP Produkte enthalten viele CSR-Teile (Customer Self Repair), um Reparaturzeiten zu minimieren und höhere
Flexibilität beim Austausch defekter Bauteile zu ermöglichen. Wenn HP (oder ein HP Servicepartner) bei der
Diagnose feststellt, dass das Produkt mithilfe eines CSR-Teils repariert werden kann, sendet Ihnen HP dieses
Bauteil zum Austausch direkt zu. CSR-Teile werden in zwei Kategorien unterteilt:
Zwingend – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren zwingend vorgegeben ist. Wenn Sie den
Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen, werden Ihnen die Anfahrt- und Arbeitskosten für diesen
Service berechnet.
Optional – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren optional ist. Diese Teile sind auch für Customer
Self Repair ausgelegt. Wenn Sie jedoch den Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen möchten,
können bei diesem Service je nach den für Ihr Produkt vorgesehenen Garantiebedingungen zusätzliche
Kosten anfallen.
HINWEIS: Einige Teile sind nicht für Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Um den Garantieanspruch des
Kunden zu erfüllen, muss das Teil von einem HP Servicepartner ersetzt werden. Im illustrierten Teilekatalog
sind diese Teile mit „No“ bzw. „Nein“ gekennzeichnet.
Technical support
97
CSR-Teile werden abhängig von der Verfügbarkeit und vom Lieferziel am folgenden Geschäftstag geliefert.
Für bestimmte Standorte ist eine Lieferung am selben Tag oder innerhalb von vier Stunden gegen einen
Aufpreis verfügbar. Wenn Sie Hilfe benötigen, können Sie das HP technische Support Center anrufen und
sich von einem Mitarbeiter per Telefon helfen lassen. Den Materialien, die mit einem CSR-Ersatzteil geliefert
werden, können Sie entnehmen, ob das defekte Teil an HP zurückgeschickt werden muss. Wenn es
erforderlich ist, das defekte Teil an HP zurückzuschicken, müssen Sie dies innerhalb eines vorgegebenen
Zeitraums tun, in der Regel innerhalb von fünf (5) Geschäftstagen. Das defekte Teil muss mit der zugehörigen
Dokumentation in der Verpackung zurückgeschickt werden, die im Lieferumfang enthalten ist. Wenn Sie das
defekte Teil nicht zurückschicken, kann HP Ihnen das Ersatzteil in Rechnung stellen. Im Falle von Customer
Self Repair kommt HP für alle Kosten für die Lieferung und Rücksendung auf und bestimmt den
Kurier-/Frachtdienst.
Weitere Informationen über das HP Customer Self Repair Programm erhalten Sie von Ihrem Servicepartner
vor Ort. Informationen über das CSR-Programm in Nordamerika finden Sie auf der HP Website unter
(http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparaciones del propio cliente
Los productos de HP incluyen muchos componentes que el propio usuario puede reemplazar (Customer Self
Repair, CSR) para minimizar el tiempo de reparación y ofrecer una mayor flexibilidad a la hora de realizar
sustituciones de componentes defectuosos. Si, durante la fase de diagnóstico, HP (o los proveedores o socios
de servicio de HP) identifica que una reparación puede llevarse a cabo mediante el uso de un componente
CSR, HP le enviará dicho componente directamente para que realice su sustitución. Los componentes CSR se
clasifican en dos categorías:
•
Obligatorio: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es obligatoria. Si solicita a
HP que realice la sustitución de estos componentes, tendrá que hacerse cargo de los gastos de
desplazamiento y de mano de obra de dicho servicio.
•
Opcional: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es opcional. Estos
componentes también están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Sin embargo, si
precisa que HP realice su sustitución, puede o no conllevar costes adicionales, dependiendo del tipo de
servicio de garantía correspondiente al producto.
NOTA: Algunos componentes no están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Para que
el usuario haga valer su garantía, HP pone como condición que un proveedor de servicios autorizado
realice la sustitución de estos componentes. Dichos componentes se identifican con la palabra "No" en el
catálogo ilustrado de componentes.
Según la disponibilidad y la situación geográfica, los componentes CSR se enviarán para que lleguen a su
destino al siguiente día laborable. Si la situación geográfica lo permite, se puede solicitar la entrega en el
mismo día o en cuatro horas con un coste adicional. Si precisa asistencia técnica, puede llamar al Centro de
asistencia técnica de HP y recibirá ayuda telefónica por parte de un técnico. Con el envío de materiales
para la sustitución de componentes CSR, HP especificará si los componentes defectuosos deberán
devolverse a HP. En aquellos casos en los que sea necesario devolver algún componente a HP, deberá
hacerlo en el periodo de tiempo especificado, normalmente cinco días laborables. Los componentes
defectuosos deberán devolverse con toda la documentación relacionada y con el embalaje de envío. Si no
enviara el componente defectuoso requerido, HP podrá cobrarle por el de sustitución. En el caso de todas
sustituciones que lleve a cabo el cliente, HP se hará cargo de todos los gastos de envío y devolución de
componentes y escogerá la empresa de transporte que se utilice para dicho servicio.

Customer Self Repair
Veel onderdelen in HP producten zijn door de klant zelf te repareren, waardoor de reparatieduur tot een
minimum beperkt kan blijven en de flexibiliteit in het vervangen van defecte onderdelen groter is. Deze
onderdelen worden CSR-onderdelen (Customer Self Repair) genoemd. Als HP (of een HP Service Partner) bij
de diagnose vaststelt dat de reparatie kan worden uitgevoerd met een CSR-onderdeel, verzendt HP dat
onderdeel rechtstreeks naar u, zodat u het defecte onderdeel daarmee kunt vervangen. Er zijn twee
categorieën CSR-onderdelen:
Verplicht: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant verplicht is. Als u HP verzoekt deze onderdelen
voor u te vervangen, worden u voor deze service reiskosten en arbeidsloon in rekening gebracht.
Optioneel: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant optioneel is. Ook deze onderdelen zijn ontworpen
voor reparatie door de klant. Als u echter HP verzoekt deze onderdelen voor u te vervangen, kunnen
daarvoor extra kosten in rekening worden gebracht, afhankelijk van het type garantieservice voor het
product.
OPMERKING: Sommige HP onderdelen zijn niet ontwikkeld voor reparatie door de klant. In verband met
de garantievoorwaarden moet het onderdeel door een geautoriseerde Service Partner worden vervangen.
Deze onderdelen worden in de geïllustreerde onderdelencatalogus aangemerkt met "Nee".
Afhankelijk van de leverbaarheid en de locatie worden CSR-onderdelen verzonden voor levering op de
eerstvolgende werkdag. Levering op dezelfde dag of binnen vier uur kan tegen meerkosten worden
aangeboden, indien dit mogelijk is gezien de locatie. Indien assistentie gewenst is, belt u een HP Service
Partner om via de telefoon technische ondersteuning te ontvangen. HP vermeldt in de documentatie bij het
vervangende CSR-onderdeel of het defecte onderdeel aan HP moet worden geretourneerd. Als het defecte
onderdeel aan HP moet worden teruggezonden, moet u het defecte onderdeel binnen een bepaalde
periode, gewoonlijk vijf (5) werkdagen, retourneren aan HP. Het defecte onderdeel moet met de
bijbehorende documentatie worden geretourneerd in het meegeleverde verpakkingsmateriaal. Als u het
defecte onderdeel niet terugzendt, kan HP u voor het vervangende onderdeel kosten in rekening brengen. Bij
reparatie door de klant betaalt HP alle verzendkosten voor het vervangende en geretourneerde onderdeel en
kiest HP zelf welke koerier/transportonderneming hiervoor wordt gebruikt.
Neem contact op met een Service Partner voor meer informatie over het Customer Self Repair programma
van HP. Informatie over Service Partners vindt u op de HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparo feito pelo cliente
Os produtos da HP são projetados com muitas peças para reparo feito pelo cliente (CSR) de modo a
minimizar o tempo de reparo e permitir maior flexibilidade na substituição de peças com defeito. Se,
durante o período de diagnóstico, a HP (ou fornecedores/parceiros de serviço da HP) concluir que o reparo
pode ser efetuado pelo uso de uma peça CSR, a peça de reposição será enviada diretamente ao cliente.
Existem duas categorias de peças CSR:
Obrigatória – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é obrigatório. Se desejar que a HP substitua essas peças,
serão cobradas as despesas de transporte e mão-de-obra do serviço.
Technical support
99
Opcional – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é opcional. Essas peças também são projetadas para o
reparo feito pelo cliente. No entanto, se desejar que a HP as substitua, pode haver ou não a cobrança de
taxa adicional, dependendo do tipo de serviço de garantia destinado ao produto.
OBSERVAÇÃO: Algumas peças da HP não são projetadas para o reparo feito pelo cliente. A fim de
cumprir a garantia do cliente, a HP exige que um técnico autorizado substitua a peça. Essas peças estão
identificadas com a marca "No" (Não), no catálogo de peças ilustrado.
Conforme a disponibilidade e o local geográfico, as peças CSR serão enviadas no primeiro dia útil após o
pedido. Onde as condições geográficas permitirem, a entrega no mesmo dia ou em quatro horas pode ser
feita mediante uma taxa adicional. Se precisar de auxílio, entre em contato com o Centro de suporte técnico
da HP para que um técnico o ajude por telefone. A HP especifica nos materiais fornecidos com a peça CSR
de reposição se a peça com defeito deve ser devolvida à HP. Nos casos em que isso for necessário, é
preciso enviar a peça com defeito à HP dentro do período determinado, normalmente cinco (5) dias úteis.
A peça com defeito deve ser enviada com a documentação correspondente no material de transporte
fornecido. Caso não o faça, a HP poderá cobrar a reposição. Para as peças de reparo feito pelo cliente, a
HP paga todas as despesas de transporte e de devolução da peça e determina a transportadora/serviço
postal a ser utilizado.
Para obter mais informações sobre o programa de reparo feito pelo cliente da HP, entre em contato com o
