Chapter 2
Server Installation
2-1Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your 2027R-N3RF4+/2027RN3RFT+ up and running. Following these steps in the order given should enable
you to have the system operational within a minimum amount of time. This quick
setup assumes that your system has come to you with the processors and memory
pre-installed. If your system is not already fully integrated with a serverboard, processors, system memory etc., please turn to the chapter or section noted in each
step for details on installing specific components.
2-2 Unpacking the System
You should inspect the box the 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ was shipped in and
note if it was damaged in any way. If the server itself shows damage you should
file a damage claim with the carrier who delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold the 2027RN3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+. It should be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is
well ventilated. Avoid areas where heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields
are generated. You will also need it placed near a grounded power outlet. Be sure
to read the Rack and Server Precautions in the next section.
2-3 Preparing for Setup
The box the 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ was shipped in should include two
sets of rail assemblies, two rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you
will need to install the system into the rack. Follow the steps in the order given to
complete the installation process in a minimum amount of time. Please read this
section in its entirety before you begin the installation procedure outlined in the
sections that follow.
Choosing a Setup Location
•Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open the front door
completely (~25 inches) and approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back
of the rack to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.This product is for
2-1
SUPERSERVER 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ User's Manual
installation only in a Restricted Access Location (dedicated equipment rooms,
service closets and the like).
•This product is not suitable for use with visual display work place devices
acccording to §2 of the the German Ordinance for Work with Visual Display
Units.
!
Warnings and Precautions!
!
Rack Precautions
•Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully extended to
the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
•In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack. In multiple
rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
•Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from the
rack.
•You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or more simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
Server Precautions
•Review the electrical and general safety precautions in Chapter 4.
•Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the
rails.
•Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and then
work up.
•Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from
power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your system operating in case of a
power failure.
•Allow the hot plug SAS/SATA drives and power supply modules to cool before
touching them.
•Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on the servers
closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
2-2
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Rack Mounting Considerations
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient temperature of the
room. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an
environment compatible with the manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow required
for safe operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does not
arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power
supply circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack itself
should be grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of power
strips, etc.).

SUPERSERVER 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ User's Manual
2-4 Installing the System into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+
into a rack unit with the rack rails provided. There are a variety of rack units on the
market, which may mean the assembly procedure will differ slightly. You should
also refer to the installation instructions that came with the rack unit you are using.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
You should have received two rack rail assemblies in the rack mounting kit. Each
assembly consists of two sections: an inner fixed chassis rail that secures directly
to the chassis and an outer rack rail that secures directly to the rack itself.
Locking Tabs
Both inner chassis rails have a locking tab. The tabs lock the chassis into place
when installed and pushed fully into the rack. These tabs also lock the server in
place when fully extended from the rack. This prevents the server from coming
completely out of the rack when you pull it out for servicing.

Figure 2-2. Inner Rail Extensions
The Inner Rail Extensions
The inner rails are pre-attached and do not interfere with normal use of the chassis if you decide not to use a server rack. When using a rack, attach the inner rail
extension to the inner rail to stabilize the chassis within the rack. If you are not
using a rack, you do not have to install the inner rail extensions.
Installing the Inner Rail Extensions
1. Place the inner rail extensions on the side of the chassis aligning the hooks
of the chassis with the rail extension holes. Make sure the extension faces
"outward" just like the pre-attached inner rail.
2. Slide the extension toward the front of the chassis.
3. Secure the rail extension to the chassis with the screws provided. Repeat
steps 1 through 3 above for the other inner rail extension.

Outer Rack Rails
Outer rails attach to the server rack and hold the chassis in place. The SC213
comes equipped with quick-release outer rails that allow the chassis to be easily
extended or removed from the rack.
Identifying the Outer Rails
1. Identify the two outer rack rails.
2. Pull out the end of the outer rail until it is fully extended as illustrated above.
3. Note the location of the release tab which will allow the outer rail extension
to be separated from the outer rail. Do not release it at this time. If released,
simply depress the release tab and slide the outer rail extension back into the
outer rail.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the second outer rail.

3-1Overview
There are several LEDs on the control panel as well as others on the hard drive
carriers to keep you constantly informed of the overall status of the system as well
as the activity and health of specific components. There are also two buttons on
the chassis control panel. This chapter explains the meanings of all LED indicators
and the appropriate response you may need to take.
3-2 Control Panel Buttons
There are two push-buttons located on the front of the chassis. These are (in order
from left to right) a reset button and a power on/off button.
Reset
The reset button reboots the system.
Power
The main power switch is used to apply or remove power from the power supply
to the server system. Turning off system power with this button removes the main
power but keeps standby power supplied to the system.
3-3 Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC219 chassis has five LEDs. These
LEDs provide you with critical information related to different parts of the system.

4-1 Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm
and the SuperServer 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ from damage:
•Be aware of the locations of the power on/off switch on the chassis as well
as the room's emergency power-off switch, disconnection switch or electrical
outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then quickly remove power from
the system.
•Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
•Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing or in-
stalling main system components, such as the serverboard, memory modules
and floppy drive. When disconnecting power, you should first power down the
system with the operating system first and then unplug the power cords of all
the power supply units in the system.
•When working around exposed electrical circuits, another person who is familiar
with the power-off controls should be nearby to switch off the power if necessary.
•Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment. This
is to avoid making a complete circuit, which will cause electrical shock. Use
extreme caution when using metal tools, which can easily damage any electrical
components or circuit boards they come into contact with.
•Do not use mats designed to decrease static electrical discharge as protection
from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically
designed as electrical insulators.
•The power supply power cords must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets. The unit has more than one power
4-1
SUPERSERVER 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ User's Manual
supply cord. Disconnect both power supply cords before servicing to avoid
electrical shock
•Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the onboard
battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarites (see Figure 4-1).
This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer (CR2032). Dispose of used batteries according to
the manufacturer's instructions.
•DVD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with a
DVD-ROM drive. To prevent direct exposure to the laser beam and hazardous
radiation exposure, do not open the enclosure or use the unit in any unconventional way.
•Mainboard replaceable soldered-in fuses: Self-resetting PTC (Positive Tempera-
ture Coefficient) fuses on the mainboard must be replaced by trained service
technicians only. The new fuse must be the same or equivalent as the one
replaced. Contact technical support for details and support.
4-2 General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
•Keep the area around the system clean and free of clutter.
•The 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ weighs approximately 52 lbs. (23.6 kg.).
When lifting the system, two people at either end should lift slowly with their
feet spread out to distribute the weight. Always keep your back straight and lift
with your legs.
•Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been re-
moved away from the system or on a table so that they won't accidentally be
stepped on.
•While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties and
unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact with electrical circuits or
be pulled into a cooling fan.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
•Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent metal
conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come into contact
with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.
•After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and secure
it to the rack unit after ensuring that all connections have been made.
4-3 ESD Precautions
!
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different electrical
charges coming into contact with each other. An electrical discharge is created to
neutralize this difference, which can damage electronic com­ponents and printed
circuit boards. The following measures are generally sufficient to neutralize this
difference before contact is made to protect your equipment from ESD:
•Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic bags
until ready for use.
•Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic
bag.
•Do not let components or PCBs come into contact with your clothing, which may
retain a charge even if you are wearing a wrist strap.
•Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or contacts.
•When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
•Put the serverboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not
in use.
•For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the serverboard.

Advanced Serverboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to the
X9DRW-3LN4F+/X9DRW-3TF+ serverboard, connect the data and power cables
and install add-on cards. All serverboard jumpers and connections are described
and a layout and quick reference chart are included in this chapter. Remember to
close the chassis completely when you have finished working on the serverboard
to protect and cool the system sufficiently.
5-1 Handling the Serverboard
Static electrical discharge can damage electronic com­ponents. To prevent damage
to printed circuit boards, it is important to handle them very carefully (see Chapter 4).
Also note that the size and weight of the serverboard can cause it to bend if handled
improperly, which may result in damage. To prevent the serverboard from bending,
keep one hand under the center of the board to support it when handling.
The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from
static discharge.
Precautions
•Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic
bag.
•Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or gold contacts.
•When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
•Put the serverboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic
bags when not in use.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

5-3 Connecting Cables
Now that the processors are installed, the next step is to connect the cables to
the serverboard.
Connecting Data Cables
The cables used to transfer data from the peripheral devices have been carefully
routed in preconfigured systems to prevent them from blocking the flow of cooling
air that moves through the system from front to back. If you need to disconnect any
of these cables, you should take care to reroute them as they were originally after
reconnecting them (make sure the red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). If you
are configuring the system, keep the airflow in mind when routing the cables.
The following data cables (with their connector locations noted) should be connected. See the serverboard layout diagram in this chapter for connector locations.
•SAS (SAS0 ~ SAS8) or SATA (SATA0 ~ 5) cables
•Control Panel cable (JF1, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The X9DRW-3LN4F+/X9DRW-3TF+ has a 24-pin primary power supply connector
designated JPW1 for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate
connector from the power supply to JPW1 to supply power to the serverboard.
See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for power connector pin
definitions.
In addition, your power supply must be connected to the 8-pin Processor Power
connectors at JPW2 and JPW3.
Connecting the Control Panel
JF1 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See Figure 5-2
for the pin locations of the front control panel buttons and LED indicators. Please
note that even and odd numbered pins are on opposite sides of each header.
All JF1 wires have been bundled into single keyed ribbon cable to simplify their
connection. The red wire in the ribbon cable plugs into pin 1 of JF1. Connect the
other end of the cable to the Control Panel printed circuit board, located just behind
the system status LEDs in the chassis.
See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for details and pin descriptions of JF1.

5-6 Adding PCI Cards
PCI Expansion Slots
Riser cards installed to the system allow you to add PCI expansion cards (see
below). The 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ can support the use of two standard
size (full-height), two low-profile and two full-height, half-length expansion cards
(with pre-installed riser cards).
PCI Card Installation
Before installing a PCI add-on card, make sure you power off the system first. Begin
by removing the top chassis cover. Two riser cards should be pre-installed into the
system. Remove the screws that secure the riser cards to the rear of the chassis
then lift the riser card assembly from the chassis. Insert the PCI card into the riser
card slot, pushing down with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card - note
that the add-on card attaches to the riser card with a single screw.
After the card has been installed, reinsert the riser card back into the expansion slot
on the board, then secure it with the same screws you removed previously. Finish
by replacing the chassis cover.

CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS and will also clear any passwords. Instead of pins,
this jumper consists of contact pads to prevent accidentally clearing the contents
of CMOS.
To clear CMOS
1. First power down the system and unplug the power cord(s).
2. With the power disconnected, short the CMOS pads with a metal object such
as a small screwdriver.
3. Remove the screwdriver (or shorting device).
4. Reconnect the power cord(s) and power on the system.
Note: Do not use the PW_ON connector to clear CMOS.

management is called SD III Client. The Supero Doctor III program included on the
CDROM that came with your serverboard allows you to monitor the environment
and operations of your system. Supero Doctor III displays crucial system information
such as CPU temperature, system voltages and fan status. See the Figure below
for a display of the Supero Doctor III interface.
Note: The default User Name and Password for SuperDoctor III is ADMIN / ADMIN.
Note: When SuperDoctor III is first installed, it adopts the temperature threshold
settings that have been set in BIOS. Any subsequent changes to these thresholds
must be made within Super Doctor, as the Super Doctor settings override the BIOS
settings. To set the BIOS temperature threshold settings again, you would first need
to uninstall SuperDoctor III.

6-3 System Fans
Four 8-cm hot-swap fans provide the cooling for the 2027R-N3RF4+/2027RN3RFT+. These fans are located on the front side of the fan bracket. In addition,
three optional fans may be placed on the rear side of the fan bracket for cooling
redundancy. An air shroud is also included to concentrate the air flow for a greater
cooling effect.
It is very important that the chassis top cover is properly installed and making a
good seal in order for the cooling air to circulate properly through the chassis and
cool the components.
System Fan Failure
Fan speed is controlled by system temperature via a BIOS setting. If a fan fails,
the remaining fan will ramp up to full speed and the overheat/fan fail LED on the
control panel will turn on. Replace any failed fan at your earliest convenience with
the same type and model (the system can continue to run with a failed fan).
Replacing System Fans
1. If necessary, open the chassis while the power is running to determine which
fan requires changing. (Never run the server for an extended period of time
with the chassis open.)
2. Press the fan release tab to lift the failed fan from the chassis and pull it
completely out of the chassis.
3. Place the new fan into the vacant space in the housing while making sure the
arrows on the top of the fan (indicating air direction) point in the same direction as the arrows on the other fans. The fan will automatically begin running
at the correct speed.
4. Finish by replacing the chassis cover.

Accessing the Drive Bays
SATA Drives: Because of their hotswap capability, you do not need to access the
inside of the chassis or power down the system to install or replace the SATA drives.
Proceed to the next section for instructions.
DVD-ROM Drive: For installing/removing a DVD-ROM drive, you will need to gain
access to the inside of the 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ by removing the top
cover of the chassis. Proceed to the "DVD-ROM Drive Installation" section later in
this chapter for instructions.
Note: Only a "slim" DVD-ROM drive will fit into the 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+.
Hard Drive Installation
The hard drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation and
removal from the chassis. System power may remain on when removing carriers
with drives installed. These carriers also help promote proper airflow for the drive
bays. For this reason, even empty carriers without drives installed must remain in
the chassis.
Mounting a Hard Drive in a Drive Carrier
1. Insert a drive into the carrier with the printed circuit board side facing down so
that the mounting holes align with those in the carrier.
2. Secure the drive to the carrier with four screws, as shown in Figure 6-5.
Removing a Hard Drive Carrier
1. To remove a carrier, push the release button located on the drive carrier.
2. Swing the colored handle fully out and use it to pull the unit straight out (see
Figure 6-6).
Note: Your operating system must have RAID support to enable the hot-plug capability of the hard drives.

Hard Drive Backplane
The hard drives plug into a backplane that provides power and drive ID. A RAID
controller can be used with the backplane to provide data security. The operating
system you use must have RAID support to enable the hot-swap capability of the
drives. The backplane is already preconfigured, so there are no jumpers or switches
present on it.
!
Use caution when working around the hard drive backplane. Do not touch
the backplane with any metal objects and make sure no ribbon cables
touch the backplane or obstruct the holes, which aid in proper airflow.
!
Important: Regardless of how many hard drives are installed, all drive carriers must remain in the drive bays to maintain proper airflow.
DVD-ROM Drive Installation
The top cover of the chassis must be opened to gain full access to the DVD-ROM
drive bay. The 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ accomodates only slim-line DVDROM drives. Side mounting brackets are needed to mount a slim-line DVD-ROM
drive in the 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ server. You must power down the
system before installing or removing a DVD-ROM drive.
Removing/Installing a Drive
1. With the chassis cover removed, unplug the power and data cables from the
drive you want to remove.
2. Locate the locking tab at the rear of the drive. It will be on the left side of the
drive when viewed from the front of the chassis.
3. Pull the tab away from the drive and push the drive unit out the front of the
chassis.
4. Add a new drive by following this procedure in reverse order. You may hear a
faint *click* of the locking tab when the drive is fully inserted.
5. Remember to reconnect the data and power cables to the drive before replacing the chassis cover and restoring power to the system.

6-4 Power Supply
The SuperServer 2027R-N3RF4+/2027R-N3RFT+ has a 920 watt redundant power
supply consisting of two power modules. Each power supply module has an autoswitching capability, which enables it to automatically sense and operate at a 100V
- 240V input voltage. An amber light will be illuminated on the power supply when the
power is off. An illuminated green light indicates that the power supply is operating.
Power Supply Failure
If either of the two power supply modules fail, the other module will take the full load
and allow the system to continue operation without interruption. The PWR Fail LED
will illuminate and remain on until the failed unit has been replaced. Replacement
units can be ordered directly from Supermicro.
The power supply units have a hot-swap capability, meaning you can replace the
failed unit without powering down the system.
Removing the Power Supply
1. Determine which power supply needs to be replaced and unplug the AC
power cord to that module.
2. Push the release tab (on the back of the power supply) as illustrated to release the power module from the chassis.
3. While holding down the release tab, pull the power supply out using the
handle provided on the power module.
