Setup Reminders
Checking the Contents
Inspect the packaging container for evidence of mishandling during transit. If the packaging
container is damaged, photograph it for reference.
Remove the server from the packaging container and, using the list below, check that all parts
and accessories are included.
•
HP ProLiant ML110 server
•
2-button PS/2 mouse
•
HP 104-key PC keyboard
•
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Installation Sheet
•
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Startup CD-ROM
This Startup CD contains on-line HP documentation as well as drivers and utilities for
configuring the server.
If any of the above items are damaged or missing, contact your dealer immediately. Save the
packaging container and packing materials in the event you need to package the server for
reshipment.
Selecting a Site
Before unpacking and installing the system, select a suitable site for the system for maximum
efficiency. Consider the following factors when choosing a site for the system:
•
Near a properly grounded, three-pronged wall power outlet
•
Clean and dust-free
•
Sturdy surface free from vibration
•
Well-ventilated and away from sources of heat, with the ventilation openings on the
server kept free of obstructions
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
3-1
System Setup
•
Secluded from strong electromagnetic fields and noise caused by electrical devices such
as elevators, copy machines, air conditioners, large fans, large electric motors, radio and
TV, transmitters, and high-frequency security devices
•
Access space provided so the server power cords can be unplugged from the power outlet
NOTE: The power button on the system does not turn off system AC power. To remove AC power from
the system, you must unplug the server’s power cord from the power outlet. The power cord is
considered the disconnect device to the main (AC) power.
IMPORTANT: Surge suppressor is recommended. In geographic regions that are susceptible to
electrical storms, it is strongly recommended that you plug the server into a surge suppressor.
Power Supply Specification in Selecting an Installation Site
Generally, the server can handle the normal transient effect caused by an inrush current when
it is first connected to an AC power source. However, if you install several HP servers on one
circuit, precautions are necessary. If there is a power failure and power restored afterwards,
all the servers immediately begin to draw inrush current at the same time. If the circuit
breakers on the incoming power line have insufficient capability, the breaker may trip and
thus prevent the servers from powering up. When selecting a site for server installation, allow
for the additional inrush current. For more information, refer to the “Power Supply
Requirements” section in Chapter 1.
System Setup
The following sections provide instructions on connecting peripherals, as well as power
on/off procedures.
Connecting Peripherals
The server unit, keyboard, mouse, and monitor constitute the basic system. Before
connecting any other peripherals, connect these peripherals first to test if the system is
running properly. The I/O connectors are all located on the rear panel of the server. These
connectors are color-coded for easy matching.
NOTE: If you have a console switch box, refer to the documentation accompanying the switch box for
instructions on connecting the keyboard, mouse, and monitor.
To Connect a Mouse and Keyboard
PS/2 Mouse and Keyboard
CAUTION: The keyboard and mouse ports are both PS/2 ports, but are not interchangeable.
If you plug the keyboard into the mouse port, or the mouse into the keyboard port, you will get
an error message.

Powering On/Off the Server
To Apply Power to the Server
After making sure that you have set up the server properly and connected all the required
peripheral cables, you can now apply power to the server.
1. Verify that the monitor is properly connected to the server and is plugged into a properly
grounded, wall power outlet.
2. Connect the server’s power cable.
Plug the power cable into the power cable socket located on the rear panel of the server.
Then plug the other end of the power cable into a properly grounded, wall power outlet.
Figure 3-6: Connecting the server’s power cable
3. Press the power button
on the front panel and then turn on the monitor.

HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
System Setup
The system starts up and loads the operating system. A welcome message is displayed. If the
system does not turn on or boot after pressing the power button, refer to the “Power
Problems” section in Chapter 6 for troubleshooting instructions.
After the welcome message display, a series of POST (Power–On Self–Test) messages
appears. The POST messages indicate if the system is running well or not. If an error
condition occurs, note any error messages appearing on the display. Go to the “POST Error
Indicators” section in Chapter 7 for more information.
Aside from the POST messages, you can determine if the system is in good condition by
checking if the following occurred:
•

•
Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock indicators on the keyboard light up.
on the front panel lights up (green).
NOTE: Only the Num Lock indicator would remain lit up.
To Turn Off the Server
To turn off the server:
1. Close all open applications.
2. Use the shut down command applicable to server’s NOS.
3. When prompted, press the power button
on the front panel.
If you want to force the server to shut down (for example if the operating system has
crashed), press and hold down the power button for approximately 5 seconds. Quickly
pressing the button may put the server in a sleep mode only.
IMPORTANT: The power supply will continue to provide standby current to the server until the power
cord is disconnected from the rear panel. When you disconnect the AC power, the server remembers
the current power state (on or off) and returns to this state when AC power is reconnected.
Sleep Modes
The HP ProLiant ML110 server supports the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power
Interface) standard, which is a key component of a NOS’ directed power management. The
supported features are available when an ACPI-compliant NOS is installed on the server. The
term sleep mode or sleep state refers to any of several reduced power consumption states in
which normal NOS activity has ceased.
The HP ProLiant ML110 server supports two sleep modes:
•
Standby
This sleep mode has a short wake-up time. During this state the server appears to be
off—the monitor appears blank and there is no CD-ROM or internal hard drive activity
(IDE or SCSI); however, the power LED displays a blinking green light and the system
fan continues to operate.
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
3-7
System Setup
•
Hibernate
This sleep mode has a slower wake-up time than the Standby mode. During this state, the
server appears to be off as described earlier, but the system fan and the front panel power
LED are also turned off.
The unique feature of this sleep mode (and the reason for its slower wake-up time) is that
information about the server’s NOS state (open applications, screens, and so on) is saved
to disk before the server is placed in the sleep state. Upon wake-up, this information is
restored from disk. This method of restoring the server’s operation is much faster than a
complete rebooting of the server. It still requires running all the start-up self-tests before
starting the NOS, but loading the NOS and all the previously opened applications is much

HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
4-15
System Configuration
Figure 4-15: Removing the processor
7. Place the processor on a static-dissipating work surface or inside an anti-static bag.
To Install a Processor
1. If necessary, remove any previously installed processor from the CPU socket. Follow the
procedures in the preceding section.
To allow the heat sink to draw away as much heat as possible from the processor base, it
is required there be a tight connection between the contact surfaces—the heat sink base
and the top side of the processor. To ensure this, it is required that a thermal grease
compound be applied.
NOTE: For this server model, it is recommended that you use the ShinEtsu G751 brand of thermal
grease compound.
2. To apply the thermal grease compound:
a. Use a clean cloth dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean both contact surfaces. Wipe the
contact surfaces several times to make sure that there are no particles or dust
contaminants.
b. Apply the thermal grease compound to both contact surfaces.
c. Use the edge of a razor blade to spread out the grease throughout the entire contact
surface and lightly scrape out any excess grease. Make sure that only a very thin layer
is applied so that the contact surface is still visible.
CAUTION: Applying too much grease will cause a gap between the contact surfaces. This
means that the heat sink is not even in direct contact with the processor, and therefore its
capacity to draw out heat is greatly reduced. Applying too much grease could also make the
grease squish out from the sides and go all over the processor pins or to the mainboard base
once the heat sink is installed. This may cause electrical shorts that can damage your system.
3. Install the processor:
a. Depress then lift up the socket retention bar up to a 90° angle from the processor
base.
b. Holding the processor by its edges, align it over the empty CPU socket.
Make sure that pin-1 marker (indicated by the notched corner) of the processor is
align to hole 1 of the socket (on the bottom right corner).
c. Insert the processor into the socket.
4-16
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
System Configuration
d. Press down the socket retention bar to lock the processor in place.
Figure 4-16: Installing a processor
Once the processor is installed, the heat sink-cooling fan assembly must be reinstalled on
top of the processor. The thermal grease you applied on the contact surfaces of the heat
sink and the processor provides the necessary thermal bonding to allow the heat sink to
draw away heat from the processor.
CAUTION: To prevent overheating or a possible system crash, use only a heat sink-cooling
fan assembly specified for the HP ProLiant ML110 server model.
4. Reinstall the heat sink-cooling fan assembly:
a. Align then insert the heat sink-cooling fan assembly on top of the processor.
b. If possible, slide the assembly slightly from side to side to help squeeze out any air
pockets trapped in the paste and to ensure even coverage.
CAUTION: Do not to slide the assembly too much or you could smear some of the grease
onto the CPU or the motherboard, or even damage the CPU pins.
c. Press down the two heat sink retention levers to secure the assembly in place.
CAUTION: To avoid thermal overheating ensure that both levers are firmly fastened,
providing good contact between the heat sink and processor.
d. Connect the CPU fan cable to its connector on the mainboard.
CAUTION: Failure to connect the CPU fan cable to its connector may cause the server to
shut down with no messages displayed and possibly damage the processor.

Memory
Your HP ProLiant server has four DIMM slots that support:
•
DDR 400 unbuffered ECC DIMMs in 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1GB configuration
•
Up to two DIMMs per channel, single-sided and/or double-sided
•
Byte masking on writes through data masking
•
Single-bit Error Correcting Code (or Error Checking and Correcting) on the system
memory interface
Memory Operating Modes
NOTE: In the following discussion, channel A corresponds to the DIMM1 and DIMM2 slots, while
channel B to the DIMM3 and DIMM4 slots. Refer to the “Mainboard Components” section on Chapter 2
for view of the mainboard layout.
The MCH (memory controller hub) of your server supports the following operation modes:
•
Single-channel mode (SC)
— Populate channel A only
— Populate channel B only
— Populate both channel A and B
If either only channel A or only channel B is populated, then the MCH is set to operate in
single-channel mode. Data is accessed in chunks of 64 bits (8B) from the memory
channels. If both channels are populated with uneven memory (DIMMs), the MCH
defaults to virtual single-channel (VSC) mode.
4-18
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
System Configuration
VSC occurs when both channels are populated but the DIMMs are not identical or there
is an odd number of identical DIMMs. The MCH behaves identical in both singlechannel and virtual single-channel modes (hereafter referred to as single-channel (SC)
mode).
In SC mode of operation, the populated DIMMs configuration can be identical or
completely different. In addition, for SC mode, not all the slots need to be populated. For
example, populating only one DIMM in channel A is a valid configuration for SC mode.
Likewise, in VSC mode odd number of slots can be populated. For Dynamic Mode
operation, the requirement is to have an even number or rows (side of the DIMM)
populated. In SC, dynamic mode operation can be enabled with one single-sided (SS),
two SS or two double-sided (DS). For VSC mode, both the channels need to have
identical row structures.
•
Dual-channel lock step mode (DS)
— DS linear mode
This mode is the normal mode of operation for the MCH.
•
Dynamic addressing mode
When the MCH is configured to operate in this mode, FSB-to-memory bus address
mapping undergoes a significant change compared to that of a linear operating mode
(normal operating mode). In non-dynamic mode, the row selection (row indicates the side
of a DIMM) via chip select signals is accomplished based on the size of the row. For
example, for a 512 MB, 16Mx8x4b has a row size of 512 MB selected by CS0# and only
four open pages can be maintained for the full 512 MB. This lowers the memory
performance (increases read latencies) if most of the memory cycles are targeted to that
single row, resulting in opening and closing of accessed pages in that row.
Dynamic addressing mode minimizes the overhead of opening/closing pages in memory
banks allowing for row switching to be done less often.
SC or DS modes can be enabled with/without dynamic addressing mode enabled.
Table 4-1 below summarizes the different memory controller operating modes.

BIOS Setup Utility
This chapter provides information on BIOS Setup Utility and instructions on how to use it to
configure the system.
NOTE: For ease of reading, BIOS Setup Utility will be simply referred to as “Setup Utility” or “Setup” in
this guide.
Setup Utility Overview
BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your system's Basic
Input/Output System (BIOS). Since most systems are already properly configured and
optimized, there is normally no need to run this utility. You will need to run this utility under
the following conditions:
•
When changing the system configuration including:
— Defining the diskette drive
— Defining the serial or parallel (COM/LPT) ports to prevent any conflicts
— Setting the system time and date
— Configuring the hard drives
— Specifying the boot device sequence
— Configuring the power management modes
— Setting up system passwords or making other changes to the security setup
•
When a configuration error is detected by the system and you are prompted ("Run Setup"
message) to make changes to the BIOS settings.
NOTE: If you repeatedly receive “Run Setup” messages, the battery may be defective. In this case, the
system cannot retain configuration values in CMOS. Ask a qualified technician for assistance.
The Setup Utility loads the configuration values in a battery-backed nonvolatile memory
called CMOS RAM. This memory area is not part of the system RAM, which allows
configuration data to be retained when power is turned off. The values take effect when the
system is booted. POST uses these values to configure the hardware. If the values and the
actual hardware do not agree, POST generates an error message. You must run this utility to
change the BIOS settings from the default or current configuration.

Specific Troubleshooting Procedures
Refer to the instructions below for troubleshooting a particular server problem.
General Server Problems
The server stops working (hangs up).
If the server hangs before the POST is completed, the problem is probably due to a hardware
problem or failure.
If the server hangs after POST is completed, the problem is possibly due to an incorrectly
configured or corrupt driver, operating system, or application program, or a media (disk
drive) error.
To resolve the problem:
1. Review the items under the “Troubleshooting Checklist” section earlier in this chapter.
2. Try to verify exactly when during POST did the server hang up.
For example, is the server stopping at the memory count or a SCSI controller? Look for
any error messages and listen for any beep codes and make note of them for further
assistance in troubleshooting the problem.
3. If your server supports the Hardware Event Log function, check it for any hardware
inconsistency.
4. If the failure persists, try removing any recently added hardware and see if the problem
still exists.
5. If the problem has disappeared, add one removed hardware component at a time back
into the server to try and verify which hardware component is causing the problem.
For further assistance, contact the HP Customer Support Center before replacing any parts.
The server passes POST, but does not function.

SCSI Problems
The SCSI boot controller BIOS has trouble loading the Boot Logical Drive (NOS drive).
1. Make sure that the SCSI boot controller is bannering (displaying) during POST.
2. Use the BIOS Setup Utility to determine what the boot order is for this server. Verify that
the SCSI boot controller board is in the correct position in the boot order.
The boot order can be viewed and changed from this utility. If necessary, change the slot
(if applicable) that the SCSI controller is in to change the location in the boot order.
If the problem persists, proceed to the next step.
3. Clear CMOS and update the system BIOS.
Refer to Chapter 5 for related instructions.
4. Repeat step 2.
5. If you installed more than one SCSI controller, try disabling the BIOS on all other SCSI
controller except for the SCSI boot controller.
This lets the SCSI BIOS for the boot controller load and prevents conflicts with the other
SCSI controllers. If necessary, remove all the other SCSI controller boards except the
SCSI boot controller until the issue is resolved.
The SCSI device stops working.
•
Verify that the device banners during POST or is visible under the BIOS Setup Utility.
•
Run Diagnostics for Windows and verify the following items:
— SCSI IDs and any relevant switch settings
— SCSI bus information
•
If an accessory board was added recently:
1. Check for a resource conflict between the new board and an existing accessory
boards.
2. Remove the board and restart the server.
Ιf this corrects the problem, the new board is either defective or it is trying to use a
system resource used by another SCSI controller board.
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
6-15
System Maintenance
•
Check for any recent changes or upgrades to the software.
For example, has anyone moved, removed, or changed the configuration files or drivers?
Refer to the software documentation for more information.
•
If you suspect hardware failure and there are no system error messages, check each
component associated with the failure. Equipment failure is probably the most unlikely
reason for a SCSI device failure.
A SCSI controller fails to work during initial installation.
Many SCSI controller problems are caused by an incorrect configuration rather than by faulty
hardware. Verify the SCSI controller BIOS is bannering during POST. Do the following:
1. If more than one SCSI controller was installed, verify that each adapter is set to a
separate BIOS address or disable the BIOS on all of the adapters except the boot
controller.
2. Make sure there are no resource conflicts.
3. For each device on the SCSI controller, verify that each device has a unique SCSI
address. Do not set any device to SCSI ID 7. This is usually the controller SCSI ID.
If the SCSI controller (adapter board) still does not banner during POST:
1. Perform steps 1 through 3 of the pre-installation instructions listed in Chapter 4.
2. Remove the left-side cover as described in Chapter 4.
3. Reseat the SCSI controller board in its slot.
4. Reinstall the left-side cover as described in Chapter 4.
5. Reconnect the power cord.
6. Turn on the server.
If the SCSI controller still does not banner during POST:
1. Repeat steps 1 through 3 above.
2. Do the following one by one, powering up the server after each one until the SCSI
controller is bannered.
a. Move the SCSI controller board into another slot.
b. Clear CMOS. Go to Chapter 5 for detailed instructions.
c. Update the system BIOS. Go to Chapter 5 for detailed instructions.
A SCSI device fails to work after installation.
6-16
•
Verify that the switch settings on the SCSI device(s) are correct.
•
Make sure that each SCSI device is assigned a unique SCSI ID.
•
Ensure that no SCSI device is set to SCSI ID 7. This SCSI address is generally used by
the SCSI controller.
•
Check that all installed SCSI controllers are configured correctly.
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
System Maintenance
•
Check the SCSI cables for problems that may have resulted from a recent server
maintenance, hardware upgrades, or physical damage.
•
Check the system BIOS version to ensure it is the most recently issued version. The most
recent version is listed on the HP’s website.
•
Verify the SCSI BIOS is being executed properly.
The internal SCSI device controllers display a banner during startup. The BIOS then
checks for valid devices on the SCSI bus, and reports which devices are found. If the
SCSI devices are installed and configured correctly, a list confirming the devices will
banner on POST after the controller banners. If the banner is not displayed, the SCSI
controller is not recognized.
NOTE: Some tape drives do not banner on POST but will show up in the BIOS Setup Utility for the
controller and in the operating system.
•
Verify the SCSI bus is terminated at both ends.
The server’s SCSI controllers in external enclosures are terminated. When a device is
connected to a connector on the SCSI bus, bus termination for that connector is disabled.
Verify the last device on the bus is terminated.
IDE problem
When an IDE device stops working:
•
Review the items under the “Troubleshooting Checklist” section earlier in this chapter.
If instructions in “Troubleshooting Checklist” section do not work, perform the following:
1. Use the Boot menu of the BIOS Setup Utility to verify that the device is enabled.
2. Use the Diagnostics for Windows utility:
•
Verify the IDE IDs and any relevant switch settings are correct.
•
Verify the problem is the IDE bus by looking for specific information.
3. If an accessory board was added recently or if you have changed the options on an
existing board, a resource conflict may have occurred. Resolve the conflict by doing
either of the following:
•
Remove the new board and restart the server.
If this corrects the problem, the board is either defective or it is trying to use a system
resource used by the IDE controller board.
•
Check if any of the accessory board is using memory, I/O addresses, or interrupt lines
that are also used by the IDE controller board.
4. Check for any recent changes or upgrades to the software.
For example, has anyone moved, removed, or changed the configuration files or drivers?
Refer to the software documentation for more information.
5. If you suspect hardware failure and there are no system error messages or beep codes,
check each component associated with the failure. Equipment failure is probably the most
unlikely reason for an IDE devices failure.

System Diagnostics
This chapter describes the available system diagnostic tools. A list of possible error messages
and their corresponding solution is provided, as well as a description of beep code meanings.
System Diagnostics Overview
The HP ProLiant ML110 server’s diagnostic function monitors system activity and performs
constant hardware testing to ensure proper system operation. The diagnostic results are
displayed during POST (which in itself is a diagnostic process). If a system failure is
detected, an error message is displayed. The following are the types of error messages a user
might encounter:
•
Built-in diagnostic error messages
•
BIOS and other error messages
These are errors detected by the system BIOS outside of the built-in diagnostics or
application errors.
Power-On Self-Test (POST)
When the server boots up, a series of tests are displayed on the screen. This is referred to as
POST (Power–On Self–Test). This diagnostic function automatically runs each time the
server is powered on. These diagnostics, which reside in the BIOS ROM, isolate serverrelated logic failures and indicate the board or component that needs to be replaced, as
indicated by the error messages. Most server hardware failures will be accurately isolated
during POST. The number of tests displayed depends on the configuration of the server.
POST Error Indicators
When POST detects a system failure, it either:
•
Displays a POST error message, or
•
Emits a series of beep codes

POST Messages
These text messages are displayed in normal video (white text on black background). It
shows the details of the error. The following is an example of a POST error message:
Error message 1 of 1:
Error code 0103
Keyboard not detected - Keyboard error
In some cases an error message may include recommendations for troubleshooting or require
that you press the Enter (or Return) key to display recommendations. Follow the
instructions on the screen.
CAUTION: Do not remove or replace parts until you have reviewed the items described in the
“ Troubleshooting Checklist” section in Chapter 6.
The table below is a list of the most common error messages with their corresponding
troubleshooting recommendation. It is recommended that you correct the error before
proceeding, even if the server appears to start successfully.

Error message
Corrective action
System CMOS checksum bad
Press F2 during POST to run BIOS Setup Utility, then perform follow the
steps below:
1.
Press F9 to load the default system values.
2.
Reset the system date and time under the Main menu.
3.
Press F10 to save the new settings and close the utility.
If you feel that your computing needs require BIOS settings that are geared
for optimum system performance, contact the HP technical support for
assistance.
When no POST message is displayed but the server stops during POST, listen for beep codes.
If a configuration error occur is reported during the startup routine, clear the CMOS memory
then restart the server. For instructions, refer to the “Clearing CMOS” section in Chapter 5.
POST Beep Codes
The POST routines cannot display messages when an error occurs if any of the following are
present:
•
The error occurs before the video display is initialized.
•
The video configuration fails, either there’s no graphics card installed or the one installed
is faulty.
•
An external ROM module does not properly checksum to zero.
•
The system memory cannot be initialized.
During these instances the server unit emits a buzzing sound followed by a series of audible
beeps. An external ROM module (e.g. VGA) can also issue audible errors, usually consisting
of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. If you get a blank screen on boot, but
hear beeps, count the beeps and refer to the following table for their corresponding meaning.
If you miss the beep code:
1. Turn off the server by pressing the power button for five seconds or more.
2. Restart the server by pressing the power button.
3. Listen for the signal again.
POST Terminal Errors
There are several POST routines that issue a POST terminal error and shut down the system
if they fail. Before shutting down the system, the terminal-error handler issues a beep code
signifying the test point error, writes the error to port 80h, attempts to initialize the video, and
writes the error in the upper left corner of the screen (using both mono and color adapters).
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide
7-3
System Diagnostics
The routine derives the beep code from the test point error as follows:
1. The 8-bit error code is broken down to four 2-bit groups (Discard the most significant
group if it is 00).
2. Each group is made one-based (1 through 4) by adding 1.
3. Short beeps are generated for the number in each group.
Example:
Test point 01Ah = 00 01 10 10 = 1-2-3-3 beeps
The table below lists the checkpoint codes written at the start of each test and the beep codes
issued for terminal errors.

Note: If BIOS detects error 2C, 2E, or 30 (base 512 KB 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. Note that error 30 cannot occur on 386SX systems because they have a
16 rather than 32-bit bus. 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
low-order byte of the error. It repeats this sequence continuously.
POST-related Troubleshooting
Perform the following procedures when POST fails to run or display error messages/emit
beep codes.
During routine bootup
Check the following:
•
All external cables and power cables should be firmly plugged in.
•
The power outlet to which the server is connected is working.
•
The server and monitor are both turned on. (Power indicators should be illuminated.)
•
The display's contrast and brightness settings are correct.
•
All internal cables are properly connected and all boards firmly seated.
•
The processor is fully seated in its socket on the mainboard.
•
The heat sink-CPU fan assembly is properly installed on top of the processor.
•
Verify that the all memory modules are properly installed.
HP ProLiant ML110 Server Operations and Maintenance Guide

System Diagnostics
After installing an accessory
1. Perform steps 1 through 3 of the pre-installation instructions in Chapter 4.
2. Remove the left-side cover as described in Chapter 4.
3. Check the following:
•
If you have installed an accessory board, verify that the board is firmly seated in its
slot and any switches or jumpers on the accessory board are properly set.
Refer to the documentation provided with the accessory board.
•
All internal cabling and connections are in their proper order.
•
If you have changed any switches on the mainboard, verify that each one is properly
set.
4. Observe the post-installation procedures described in Chapter 4.
5. Turn on the monitor.
6. If the server still does not work, repeat steps 1 through 2.
7. Remove all accessories, except the primary boot hard disk drive.
8. Repeat steps 4 through 5.
9. If the server now works, replace the boards and accessories one at a time to determine
which one is causing the problem.
Hardware Diagnostic Software
The purpose of hardware diagnostic software is to provide tools for checking hardware
problems. By design, diagnostic software executes simple tests of each hardware component.
Usually, such tests assure the hardware is not the source of server problems. This allows the
user to eliminate hardware as the cause of the problem and to focus on operating system
configuration parameters, network connections, and application software configuration
parameters as the source of the problem.
If hardware problems are confirmed, the diagnostic software program can sometimes detect
and diagnose the system or specific server component causing the problem. In addition,
hardware diagnostic software can capture information that allows support personnel to
quickly assess the condition of the server. In order to be effective, diagnostic software tools
must be used in the context of a wider troubleshooting procedure.

Addendum - SATA Configuration
SATA Overview
The HP Proliant ML110’s mainboard supports two 7-pin 150-MBps SATA (Serial Advanced
Technology Attachment) connectors. SATA is a new disk interface technology for
connecting hard drives into computer systems. It is based on serial signaling technology, as
opposed to parallel signaling used in PATA (Parallel ATA). The thinner serial cables used in
a SATA configuration makes installation procedures a lot simpler for users while at the same
time facilitating a more efficient airflow inside the system. The fewer number of conductors
used makes crosstalk and EMI (electromagnetic interference) less of a concern thus
promoting better system performance.
Your HP server can support four SATA drives via a hot-plug cage. RAID management
function is provided by the bundled FastTrak S150 SX4 RAID Controller card with its
ensuite software utility—Promise Array Management (PAM).
For information on installing the FastTrak S150 SX4 RAID Controller card and configuring
an array on your HP server, refer to Chapter 2 of the Promise FastTrak S150 SX4/SX4000
/SX4000 Lite User Manual that comes with your system.
SATA Hot-Plug Cage Cabling
Figure 8-1 on the next page shows the cabling system used in the system’s SATA
configuration. Refer to this illustration when replacing the hot-plug cage backplane, or any
time you need to disconnect and reconnect the cables.

Electrostatic Discharge
Preventing Electrostatic Damage
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 when setting up the system or handling parts:
•
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 Damage
There are several methods 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 grounding, wear the strap snug against
the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or bootstraps 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
HP service provider install the part.
For more information on static electricity, or assistance with product installation, contact your
authorized reseller.
