(59P4057): The power supply upgrade is auto-sensing
between high- and low-power voltage range supply. It
comes with three optional fans to give the system
redundant power and cooling. These optional fans are
only available with the optional power supply.

supporting high-speed (320 MB/s) internal storage
solutions
•
Dual-gigabit (10/100/1000) Ethernet PCI controllers;
speed network communications to LAN clients
The xSeries 345 subsystems are tuned to provide solid
system throughput from processor, to memory, to bus, to
disk-intensive I/O. These features, combined with SMP
capability, make the xSeries 345 server an excellent
choice for stand-alone or clustered general-business
application, file, and print server.
High-Performance Server Subsystems
High-Availability and Serviceability Features
These new xSeries 345 servers expand the xSeries server
line by adding a higher level of processor power.
The xSeries 345 server is a high-throughput, two-way,
SMP-capable network server with excellent performance
and scalability when you add memory and a second
processor. It incorporates powerful Xeon processors with
512 KB L2 cache. The advanced transfer L2 cache is
integrated onto the processor core and runs at the same
clock speed as the processor core.
The advanced
transfer cache is a result of a “backside bus” that is
256 bits wide. It features a quad-wide cache line that can
transfer four 64-bit cache line segments at one time to
deliver full-speed capability. The cache is eight-way, set
associative.
Two Intel Xeon processor connectors are standard on the
system board to support installation of a second
processor. High-speed 100 MHz SDRAM is optimized for
100 MHz processor-to-memory subsystem performance.
The xSeries 345 server uses the ServerWorks CMIC-LE
chipset with Chipkill technology to maximize throughput
from processors to memory, and to the 64-bit and 32-bit
PCI buses.

Compatibility: The xSeries 345 systems contain licensed
system programs that include set configuration, set
features, and test programs. System SurePath BIOS is
loaded from a “flash” EEPROM into system memory. This
BIOS provides instructions and interfaces designed to
support the standard features of the xSeries 345 and to
maintain compatibility with many current software
programs.
Note: Mixing Ultra320 drives with drives of any other
speed rating will cause them to run at U160 speeds.
In configurations where external SCSI device attachment
is required, an external SCSI connector is available at
rear of system.
Rack Installations: xSeries 345 2U rack-drawer models
are designed to be installed in a 19-inch rack cabinet
designed for 26-inch deep devices, such as the
NetBAY42U ER and NetBAY42U SR.
To view detailed information on the Internet about IBM
and non-IBM devices, adapters, software, and network
operating systems supported with xSeries servers, visit:
If you are using a non-IBM rack, the cabinet must meet
the EIA-310-D standards with a depth of at least 28 inches.
Also, adequate space (approximately two inches for the
front bezel and one inch for air flow) must be maintained
from the slide assembly to the front door of the rack
cabinet to allow sufficient space for the door to close and
provide adequate air flow.
http://www.pc.ibm.com/us/compat
Customers can contact their IBM representative, IBM
Business Partner, or refer to the IBM Sales Manual for
information on the compatibility of hardware and software
for xSeries servers.
The Sales Manual is updated
periodically as new features and options are announced
that support these servers.

Power Considerations: The xSeries 345 server includes
a standard 350 W hot-swap power supply. This power
supply is capable of providing sufficient power to run the
server.
An xSeries 350 W Hot-Swap Power Supply
Upgrade (includes three cooling fans) is optionally
available to support redundancy.
When 2 GB DIMM is available
Refer to the Software Requirements section for operating
system limitations.
Planning Information
Cable Orders:
Two 10/100/1000 Mbps, full-duplex
Ethernet PCI controllers, standard with the xSeries 345
server, are connected directly to an independent RJ-45
connector. The RJ-45 connector provides a 10BaseT,
100Base-TX and 1000Base-TX interface for connecting
twisted-pair cable to the Ethernet network. Cabling is not
included with the server.
To connect the Ethernet
controller to a repeater or switch, use an unshielded
twisted pair (UTP) cable with RJ-45 connectors at both
ends. For 100/1000 Mbps operation, Category 5 cabling
must be used. For 10 Mbps operation, Category 3, or
better, cabling must be used.
Customer Responsibilities: The xSeries 345 server is
designated as customer setup.
Customer setup
instructions are shipped with system.
Configuration Information
Bay Configuration: The xSeries 345 server contains eight
bays. The top bay on the right contains the standard,
3.5-inch slim-high diskette drive, the bay to the left
contains the slim-high CD-ROM drive. Six slim-high,
hot-swap bays in the center of the server are ready for
various supported hot-swap HDD drive options
installation.
There are no additional cabling requirements, other than
for system power, keyboard, mouse, and monitor
connections.
The 24x-10x IDE CD-ROM is connected to the IDE port
through an interposer card.
Installability: The xSeries 345 server requires about 20
minutes for installation. Installation includes unpacking,
setting up, and powering on the system. Additional time
is required to install an operating system, additional
adapters, or features.
Cabling — Standard Non-RAID Configurations:
The
xSeries 345 server contains a DASD backplane supporting
six hot-swap, SCA-2 compliant drive bays. The backplane
is connected to one of the internal connectors of the
integrated Ultra320 SCSI controller through a 16-bit LVD
SCSI cable.
