Rack Warnings and Precautions
Before beginning installation procedures, make sure that you understand the
following warnings and cautions:
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, always ensure that the rack is
adequately stabilized before extending a component outside the rack. A rack
may become unstable if more than one component is extended for any reason.
Extend only one component at a time.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment,
be sure that:
The leveling jacks are extended to the floor
The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks
The stabilizers are attached to the rack if it is a single rack installation
The racks are coupled together in multiple rack installations
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, at
least two people are needed to safely unload the rack from the pallet. An empty
42U rack weighs 253 lb (115 kg), is over seven ft (2.1m) tall, and may become
unstable when being moved on its casters. Do not stand in front of the rack as it
rolls down the ramp from the pallet, but handle it from the sides.
WARNING: A rack may become unstable if more than one component is
extended for any reason. To reduce the risk of personal injury, always ensure
that the rack is adequately stabilized before extending a component outside the
rack, and extend only one component at a time.
WARNING: Before beginning to work on the rack, be sure that the leveling
jacks are extended to the floor, that the full weight of the rack rests on the level
floor, and that either stabilizers are installed or that multiple racks are coupled
together for stability.

Installing the Rack Model ProLiant ML370
The Optimum Environment
When installing your Compaq ProLiant ML370 server in a rack, certain power
requirements must be met.
Power Requirements
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, fire, or damage to the
equipment, do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to
the rack. Consult the electrical authority having jurisdiction over your facility
wiring and installation requirements.
The power load needs to be balanced between available AC supply
branch circuits.
The overall system AC current load must not exceed 80 percent of the
branch circuit AC current rating.
If power strips are used, the load should not exceed 80 percent of the
marked electrical current rating.
The installation of this equipment shall be in accordance with local and
regional electrical regulations governing the installation of Information
Technology Equipment by licensed electricians. This equipment is designed to
operate in installations covered by the National Electric Code
(ANSI/NFPA 70, 1993) and the code for Protection of Electronic

Compaq ProLiant ML370 Setup and Installation Guide
Temperature Requirements
To ensure continued safe and reliable operation of the equipment, locate the
system in a well-ventilated, climate-controlled environment.
The operating temperature inside the rack will always be higher than the room
temperature and is dependent on the configuration of the equipment in your
rack.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third
party options:
Ensure that the option equipment does not impede airflow to the
ProLiant ML370 rack server or increase the internal rack temperature
beyond the Compaq-specified maximum rating.
Ensure that the manufacturer’s maximum recommended ambient
operating temperature is not exceeded when optional equipment is
installed in the rack.
Airflow Requirements
Compaq rack servers draw cool air in through the front door and expel warm
air out through the rear. Therefore, the front door of the rack must be
adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the cabinet and the
rear door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape from
the cabinet. Do not block the ventilation apertures.
Blanking Panels
If not all of the vertical space in the rack is filled by components, the gaps that
are left will cause a change in airflow through the rack and across the
components. These gaps must be covered with blanking panels.
Installation Sequence
Begin installing your rack model server:
1. Select an appropriate site for your rack. Consult the site selection criteria
for installing rack products included with your Documentation CD.
NOTE: For specific hardware and software installation guidelines, refer to the
Documentation CD and other operational documents shipped with your server or with
appropriate option kits.

other components.
10. Repeat Steps 5 through 8 for the other bracket rail and mounting
bracket.
Attaching the Slide Assembly to the Rack
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment,
be sure that the leveling feet are extended to the floor and support the full
weight of the rack. Each rack must be level and stable. Racks that are not
coupled together require the installation of stabilizers. This must be done before
you perform any work on the rack. See the Documentation CD for more
information about installing leveling feet and stabilizers.
Applying the Template
The template provided with the server offers an easy and reliable way to
position the server in the rack properly. Use the tabs on the template to
suspend it from the lower hole of a two-hole set of perforations in the vertical
side rails. Pencil-mark the attachment points for the mounting bracket
assemblies, the cage nuts for the faceplate thumbscrews, and the top of the
server. Use the tick marks on the rack side rails to ensure level installation of
the server. Refer to other illustrations and instructions printed on the template.
IMPORTANT: Determine the server’s place in the rack before you start installing the
mounting bracket assemblies. To remind you of the proper placement of the server in the
rack, refer to the rack building report you printed when you planned your rack
configuration. Always mount the heaviest item on the bottom of the rack and work from
the bottom to the top.

component, measure the screw hole locations for the server’s mounting
bracket assemblies.
2. Use a pencil to mark the screw hole locations on the outside of the rack.
Do this on both the front and the back of the rack.
IMPORTANT: The template is two-sided (front and back) and printed with arrows that
show you where the screws will be inserted, both for the mounting bracket assemblies
and for the thumbscrews that will secure the server’s faceplate to the front of the rack.
Align the template carefully with the holes on the rack to determine the exact placement
of the screws.
3. When you mark the positioning of the mounting bracket screws, also
mark the positioning in the front of the rack for the cage nuts. These are
the two slots marked “C” on the template. The cage nuts will hold the
thumbscrews through the server’s faceplate.
CZR4-009.EPS
Be sure to follow the alignment instructions on the template and keep
the sides of the template squared up with the sides of the rack. Placing
marks on the rack’s vertical rails will help you maintain the proper
alignment.

Power Cords
The power cord set included in your server meets the requirements for use in
the country where you purchased your server. If you need to use this server in
another country, you should purchase a power cord that is approved for use in
that country.
The power cord must be rated for the product and for the voltage and current
marked on the product’s electrical ratings label. The voltage and current rating
of the cord should be greater than the voltage and current rating marked on the
2
product. In addition, the diameter of the wire must be a minimum of 1.00 mm ,
or 18AWG, and the length of the cord must be between 6 feet (1.8 m) and 12
feet (3.6 m). If you have questions about the type of power cord to use, contact
your Compaq authorized service provider.
A power cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or
pinched by items placed upon it or against it. Particular attention should be
paid to the plug, electrical outlet, and the point where the cord exits from the
product.

Compaq ProLiant ML370 Setup and Installation Guide
SCSI Hard Drive Installation Guidelines
The following guidelines should be noted when adding SCSI hard drives. See
Chapter 5, “SCSI Cabling Instructions,” for additional information.
The SCSI ID for each hot-plug hard drive is automatically set as the bay
number (Bay 0 = SCSI ID 0).
Except for hot-plug drives in ProLiant ML370 servers and storage
systems, you must manually set the SCSI ID on each drive to a unique
value in the range of 0 to 6 for each SCSI bus. Consult the
documentation that came with the drive for instructions on setting the
SCSI ID.
If only one SCSI hard drive is used, it should be installed in the bay with
the lowest number.
Compaq SCSI non-hot-plug cables are terminated. Be sure to remove all
terminating jumpers from third-party SCSI devices.
SCSI hard drives on port 1 with the Integrated Dual Channel Wide
Ultra 2 SCSI Controller may be either internal or external drives, but not
both.
All drives should be Wide Ultra2 SCSI type. Mixing other drive
standards degrades the overall performance of your drive subsystem.
Drives should be the same capacity to provide the greatest storage space
efficiency when drives are grouped together into the same drive array.
Run the System Configuration Utility after installing a drive.
Installing Mass Storage Devices
All ProLiant ML370 servers ship standard with four non-hot-plug, removable
media drive bays. The top two bays are occupied with a 3.5-inch diskette drive
and a CD-ROM drive; the bottom two half-height bays are vacant. You can
install one full-height drive or up to two half-height devices in the vacant
media bay areas.
Two half-height removable storage devices such as hard or floppy disk drives
can be installed in the bottom two removable media drive bays. Also, one
full-height storage device, such as a digital linear tape (DLT) drive, can be
installed in the area occupied by the bottom two removable media drive bays.
The following sections provide instructions for installing both half- and fullheight devices. To install a device in this area and to cable the device, refer to

Server Configuration and Utilities
This chapter provides instructions for using Compaq System Configuration
Utilities, for using Compaq SmartStart, and for loading device drivers.
System Configuration Utility
Compaq System Configuration Utility performs a wide range of configuration
activities, including:
Automatically configuring PCI plug-and-play boards
Providing switch and jumper settings
Resolving resource conflicts in memory, port addresses, and interrupt
requests (IRQ)
Managing the installation of mass storage devices such as hard drives,
tape drives, and diskette drives
Setting and storing Power-On features such as date and time
Storing configuration information in nonvolatile memory
Installing an operating system
Running diagnostic tools such as TEST and INSPECT Utilities
If the SmartStart and Support Software CD is used the first time the server is
configured, the SmartStart program automatically creates a Compaq utility
partition and installs the System Configuration Utility and other Compaq
utilities in that partition.

Compaq ProLiant ML370 Setup and Installation Guide
IMPORTANT: The Compaq utilities partition should not be confused with the partitions
created by your operating system.
In ProLiant ML370 servers, the system ROM automatically configures the
system when adding or removing memory, a second processor, or a PCI
expansion board.
The System Configuration Utility uses option configuration (.CFG) files to set
up and configure the computer. The .CFG files provide information such as
switch settings, IRQs, and software installation guidelines. The .CFG files for
Compaq servers are located on the System Configuration diskettes and
Compaq SmartStart and Support Software CD shipped with your server.
For PCI boards, the utility reads the configuration options from the PCI
board's configuration space, or as an option, from a PCI configuration file
(.PCF). The .PCF file can be found on the following diskettes or CD:
Compaq Options Configuration Files diskette
Non-Compaq Option Configuration Files diskette
Compaq SmartStart and Support Software CD
The .CFG file provides board resource requirements for setting switch and
jumper configurations.
Resolving Resource Conflicts
If you add a PCI expansion board after the initial startup, the system detects
this change when you turn on the computer. The system ROM reads the PCI
board identifier, compares it with the current configuration information stored
in nonvolatile memory, and automatically configures the PCI board. If a user
selection is required, the system ROM enables the board with default settings
and provides a POST message advising the user to use the System
Configuration Utility to view or change the default settings. Additionally, you
can change the default automatic settings by running the System Configuration
Utility.
The System Configuration Utility reads the option configuration .CFG files to
determine any resource conflicts, such as two devices requiring the same
hardware interrupt. If the system identifies a conflict, the software rechecks all
expansion board specifications to determine if settings for a previously read
board can be changed to automatically resolve the conflict between the two
boards.

WOL network controller on a ProLiant ML370 server and you do not plan to
use the SmartStart installation process to set up your server, you must install
updated support software for your controller to connect properly to the
network. Your server must have certain device drivers to operate under the
SCO OpenServer and UnixWare 2.1.2 and 2.1.3 operating systems. Drivers
that are not bundled with SCO shipping media are located on the Compaq
SmartStart and Support Software CD.
Compaq SmartStart Installation
An integrated Compaq SmartStart installation is available to assist you with

and Support Software CD also includes all the SCO UNIX device drivers for
your system.
Manual Installation
Alternatively, selecting the manual path after starting the Compaq SmartStart
and Support Software CD automatically creates the system configuration
partition server and allows you to use the SCO interview process. Depending
on your operating system, it may be necessary to use the Compaq Boot Time
Loadable Drivers (BTLD) diskette or the Compaq Host Bus Adapters (HBA)
diskette along with the Compaq Extended Feature Supplement (EFS) diskette
to install driver support. Drivers can be downloaded onto diskettes with tools
available on the Compaq SmartStart and Support Software CD. To create these
diskettes, boot the Compaq SmartStart and Support Software CD and follow
the instructions to create Supplemental Support Software diskettes.
One of the diskettes on the Compaq EFS contains a bootable documentation
diskette. Before attempting to install the SCO UNIX software, run this diskette
and read the README file for the Compaq EFS. This file instructs you on
how to use the BTLD or HBA diskettes along with the SCO installation media.
A third method is similar to the manual path method listed above. However,
you must run the Compaq System Configuration Utility to configure the
system, obtain the appropriate EFS for the SCO operating system release, and
follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions. Once again, depending on
the operating system, it may be necessary to use the Compaq Boot Time
Loadable Drivers (BTLD) diskette or the Compaq Host Bus Adapters (HBA)
diskette along with the Compaq Extended Feature Supplement (EFS) diskette
to install all the driver support. These utilities can be downloaded onto
diskettes with tools available on the Compaq SmartStart and Support
Software CD.
Creating Utility Diskettes
To create utility diskettes, boot the Compaq SmartStart and Support Software
CD and follow the instructions to create Supplemental Support Software
diskettes. One of the diskettes on the Compaq EFS contains a bootable
documentation diskette. Before attempting to install the SCO UNIX software,
boot this diskette and read the README file for the Compaq EFS. This file
instructs you on how to use the BTLD or HBA diskettes along with the SCO
installation media.

Electrostatic Discharge
To prevent damage to 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, observe the following precautions:
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.

Compaq ProLiant ML370 Setup and Installation Guide
Grounding Methods
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 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
workmat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have
a Compaq authorized reseller install the part.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity, or for assistance with product
installation, contact your Compaq authorized reseller.

Installing a New Battery
Compaq ProLiant ML370 servers include memory devices that require a
battery to retain stored information. These devices, and the battery, are located
on the system board.
System Board Battery Replacement
When your server no longer automatically displays the correct date and time,
you may need to replace the lithium battery that provides power to the realtime clock. Under normal use, battery life is usually about five to ten years.
For optimal system performance, order a Compaq lithium replacement battery,
type CR2450N, part number 179322-xxx.
After you have completed the battery installation, run the System
Configuration Utility to reconfigure your system.
Installing the System Board Battery
To install the new battery, complete the following steps:
1. If the server is on, place it in Standby mode and disconnect the power.
Refer to Chapter 2, “Installing the Tower Model,” for detailed
instructions on preparing the server for installation or upgrade.
2. For the rack model, pull the server forward in the rack for access to the
inside of the server.
3. Remove the small access panel.

Switches and Jumpers
When you add or remove a component or change a security feature, you must
reconfigure the computer to recognize these changes. If the system
configuration is incorrect, your computer may not work properly and you may
receive error messages on the screen. Setting the system board switches is part
of the reconfiguration process, along with running the System Configuration
Utility.
Setting System Board Switches
Compaq ProLiant ML370 servers have two switch banks (1 and 2) located on
the system board that are used to set the overall configuration of your server:
The processor configuration switch (SW1) is an eight-position switch
(S1-S8) that provides the processor switch settings of your server. The
settings for this switch are reserved.
IMPORTANT: Do not reconfigure the processor switch settings manually. When you
upgrade or add a processor, the system automatically detects and reconfigures the
processor switch settings
The system configuration switch (SW2) is a six-position switch (S1-S6)
that is used for system configuration.
Refer to the labels on the access panels or to the following table for
appropriate system configuration switch settings.
