Memory options
TruDDR4 Memory uses the highest quality components that are sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only
memory that meets the strict requirements of Lenovo is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned on every
System x server to maximize performance and reliability. TruDDR4 Memory has a unique signature that is
programmed into the DIMM that enables System x servers to verify whether the memory that is installed is
qualified or supported by Lenovo. Because TruDDR4 Memory is authenticated, certain extended memory
performance features can be enabled to extend performance over industry standards. From a service and
support standpoint, Lenovo memory automatically assumes the Lenovo system warranty and Lenovo provides
service and support worldwide.
The following table lists the supported memory options.

The server supports up to 12 TruDDR Memory DIMMs when one processor is installed and up to 24 DIMMs
when two processors are installed. Each processor has four memory channels, and there are three DIMMs per
memory channel (3 DPC). RDIMMs and LRDIMMs are supported, but the mixing of these different types is not
supported. UDIMMs are not supported. DIMMs can be installed individually; however, install them in sets of four
(one for each of the four memory channels) for performance reasons.
The following rules apply when the memory configuration is selected:
Mixing of different types of DIMMs (RDIMM and LRDIMM) in the same server is not supported.
The maximum number of supported ranks per channel is eight.
The maximum quantity of DIMMs that can be installed in the server depends on the number of CPUs,
DIMM rank and operating voltage, as shown in the "Maximum quantity" row in the following table.
All DIMMs in all CPU memory channels operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest
value of the following factors:
Memory speed that is supported by the specific CPU.
Lowest maximum operating speed for the selected memory configuration that depends on rated
speed, as shown in the "Maximum operating speed" section in the following table.
The following table shows the maximum memory speeds that are achievable based on the installed DIMMs and
the number of DIMMs per channel. The table also shows the maximum memory capacity at any speed that is
supported by the DIMM and maximum memory capacity at rated DIMM speed. In the table, cells that are
highlighted in gray indicate when the specific combination of DIMM voltage and number of DIMMs per channel
still allows the DIMMs to operate at the rated speed.

Memory mirroring
Memory sparing
If memory mirroring is used, DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per CPU), and both DIMMs
in a pair must be identical in type and size.
If memory rank sparing is used, a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM or two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs
must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one
rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The size of a rank varies depending on
the DIMMs that are installed.
Internal storage
Lenovo Flex System x240 M5 (E5-2600 v3)

Internal storage
The x240 M5 server has two 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays that are accessible from the front of the blade server
(see Figure 2). These bays connect to the integrated ServeRAID M1210e 12 Gbps SAS/SATA controller.
The integrated ServeRAID M1210e controller has the following features:
Based on the LSI SAS3004 RAID-on-Chip (ROC)
12 Gbps controller with four ports
PCIe x4 Gen 2 host interface
Two SAS ports routed internally to the two hot-swap drive bays
Supports RAID-0, RAID-1 and RAID-1E
Optional support for SED drives
Optional support for RAID-5 and 4x 1.8-inch drive bays
The onboard M1210e controller optionally supports self-encrypting drives (SEDs) with the addition of Features
on Demand license upgrade, ServeRAID M1200 Series Zero Cache/RAID 5 Upgrade, 00AE930. This license
upgrade enables the LSI MegaRAID SafeStore service which offers instant secure erase and local key
management for SEDs.
The two 2.5-inch front-accessible drive bays can be replaced with four 1.8-inch drive bays by using the
ServeRAID M1200 RAID 5 Enablement Kit (00JX141). This kit contains a replacement backplane to connect the
four 1.8-inch SSDs, however, to enable RAID 5 you will also need the ServeRAID M1200 Series Zero
Cache/RAID 5 Features on Demand upgrade (00AE930).
The two standard 2.5-inch SAS/SATA drive bays can also be replaced with new PCIe NVMe (Non-Volatile
Memory Express) drives that are directly connected to the PCIe bus of the second processor. Such connectivity,
when combined with SSD drives, ensures the lowest possible latency while still using a standard drive form
factor.
2nd processor required : Support for NVMe drives requires a replacement drive backplane for the two 2.5-inch
drives plus the second processor must also be installed in the server. The kit containing the backplane, NVMe
Enterprise PCIe SSD Enablement Kit for Flex System x240 M5, is listed in the following table.

Power supplies
Server power is derived from the power supplies that are installed in the chassis. There are no server options
regarding power supplies.
Integrated virtualization
The x240 M5 supports the VMware vSphere (ESXi) hypervisor on one or two SD cards with the optional SD
Media Adapter for System x. This adapter is installed in a dedicated slot beneath I/O Adapter slot 1, as shown
in the following figure.
Figure 11. SD Media Adapter for System x
When only one SD card is installed in the adapter, you can create up to 16 volumes, each of which is presented
to UEFI as a bootable device. When two SD Media cards are inserted, volumes can be mirrored (RAID-1) across
both cards, up to a total of eight mirrored volumes. The use of mirrored volumes improves system availability
because the server remains operational, even if one SD card fails. The RAID functionality is handled internally by
the SD Media Adapter.
The following table shows the available options. The table also indicates whether the option includes the SD
Media RAID Adapter and how many SD cards are included.

Light path diagnostics
For quick problem determination when it is physically at the server, the x240 M5 offers the following three-step
guided path:
1. The Fault LED on the front panel.
2. The light path diagnostics panel, as shown in the following figure.
3. LEDs next to key components on the system board.
The x240 M5 light path diagnostics panel is inside the server between the two processors, as shown in the
following figure.
Figure 12. Location of x240 M5 light path diagnostics panel
To illuminate the light path diagnostics LEDs, power off the compute node, slide it out of the chassis, and press
the power button. The power button doubles as the light path diagnostics reminder button when the server is
removed from the chassis.
The meanings of the LEDs in the light path diagnostics panel are listed in the following table.

Remote management
Lenovo Flex System x240 M5 (E5-2600 v3)
28
Remote management
The server contains an Integrated Management Module II (IMM2), which interfaces with the advanced
management module in the chassis. The combination of these modules provides advanced service-processor
control, monitoring, and an alerting function. If an environmental condition exceeds a threshold or if a system
component fails, LEDs on the system board are lit to help you diagnose the problem, the error is recorded in the
event log, and you are alerted to the problem. A virtual presence capability comes standard for remote server
management.
Remote server management is provided through the following industry-standard interfaces:
Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) Version 2.0
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Version 3
Common Information Model (CIM)
Web browser
The server also supports virtual media and remote control features, which provide the following functions:
Remotely viewing video with graphics resolutions up to 1600x1200 at 75 Hz with up to 23 bits per pixel,
