Important information about replacing RoHS compliant FRUs
RoHS, The Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic
Equipment Directive (2002/95/EC) is a European Union legal requirement
affecting the global electronics industry. RoHS requirements must be
implemented on Lenovo products placed on the market and sold in the
European Union after June 2006. Products on the market before June 2006 are
not required to have RoHS compliant parts. If the parts are not compliant
originally, replacement parts can also be noncompliant, but in all cases, if the
parts are compliant, the replacement parts must also be compliant.
Note: RoHS and non-RoHS FRU part numbers with the same fit and function are
identified with unique FRU part numbers.
Chapter 1. About this manual
7
Lenovo plans to transition to RoHS compliance well before the implementation
date and expects its suppliers to be ready to support Lenovo’s requirements and
schedule in the EU. Products sold in 2005 will contain some RoHS compliant
FRUs. The following statement pertains to these products and any product Lenovo
produces containing RoHS compliant parts.
RoHS compliant ThinkServer RD240 parts have unique FRU part numbers. Before
or after June 2006, failed RoHS compliant parts must always be replaced using
RoHS compliant FRUs, so only the FRUs identified as compliant in the system
Hardware Maintenance Manual or direct substitutions for those FRUs can be used.

Solving power problems
Power problems can be difficult to solve. For example, a short circuit can exist
anywhere on any of the power distribution buses. Usually, a short circuit will
cause the power subsystem to shut down because of an overcurrent condition. To
diagnose a power problem, use the following general procedure:
1. Turn off the server and disconnect all ac power cords.
2. Check for loose cables in the power subsystem. Also check for short circuits, for
example, if a loose screw is causing a short circuit on a circuit board.
Chapter 3. Diagnostics
23
3. Remove the adapters and disconnect the cables and power cords to all internal
and external devices until the server is at the minimum configuration that is
required for the server to start (see “Solving undetermined problems” on page
25 for the minimum configuration).
4. Reconnect all ac power cords and turn on the server. If the server starts
successfully, replace the adapters and devices one at a time until the problem is
isolated.
If the server does not start from the minimum configuration, replace the
components in the minimum configuration one at a time until the problem is
isolated.
Solving Ethernet controller problems
The method that you use to test the Ethernet controller depends on which
operating system you are using. See the operating-system documentation for
information about Ethernet controllers, and see the Ethernet controller
device-driver readme file.
Try the following procedures:
v Make sure that the correct device drivers, which come with the server, are
installed and that they are at the latest level.
v Make sure that the Ethernet cable is installed correctly.
– The cable must be securely attached at all connections. If the cable is attached
but the problem remains, try a different cable.
– If the Ethernet controller is set to operate at 100 Mbps, you must use
Category 5 cabling.
– If you directly connect two servers (without a hub), or if you are not using a
hub with X ports, use a crossover cable. To determine whether a hub has an X
port, check the port label. If the label contains an X, the hub has an X port.
v Determine whether the hub supports auto-negotiation. If it does not, try
configuring the integrated Ethernet controller manually to match the speed and
duplex mode of the hub.
v Check the Ethernet controller LEDs on the rear panel of the server. These LEDs
indicate whether there is a problem with the connector, cable, or hub.
– The Ethernet link status LED is lit when the Ethernet controller receives a link
pulse from the hub. If the LED is off, there might be a defective connector or
cable or a problem with the hub.
– The Ethernet transmit/receive activity LED is lit when the Ethernet controller
sends or receives data over the Ethernet network. If the Ethernet
transmit/receive activity LED is off, make sure that the hub and network are
operating and that the correct device drivers are installed.
v Check the LAN activity LEDs on the rear of the server. The LAN activity LED is
lit when data is active on the Ethernet network. If the LAN activity LED is off,
make sure that the hub and network are operating and that the correct device
drivers are installed.
v Check for operating-system-specific causes of the problem.
v Make sure that the device drivers on the client and server are using the same
protocol.
If the Ethernet controller still cannot connect to the network but the hardware
appears to be working, the network administrator must investigate other possible
causes of the error.

If the problem is solved when you remove an adapter from the server but the
problem recurs when you reinstall the same adapter, suspect the adapter; if the
problem recurs when you replace the adapter with a different one, suspect the
system board or extender card.
If you suspect a networking problem and the server passes all the system tests,
suspect a network cabling problem that is external to the server.
Event logs
Error codes and messages are displayed in the following types of event logs:
v POST event log: This log contains the three most recent error codes and
messages that were generated during the POST.
Chapter 3. Diagnostics
25
v System-event log: This log contains all the POST and system management
interrupt (SMI) events. You can view the system-event log through the Setup
Utility program and through the as the IPMI event log.
The system-event log is limited in size. When it is full, new entries will not
overwrite existing entries; therefore, you must periodically save and then clear
the system-event log through the Setup Utility program. When you are
troubleshooting, you might have to save and then clear the system-event log to
make the most recent events available for analysis.
Messages are listed on the left side of the screen, and details about the selected
message are displayed on the right side of the screen. To move from one entry
to the next, use the Up Arrow (↑) and Down Arrow (↓) keys.
Viewing event logs without restarting the server
If the server is not hung, methods are available for you to view one or more event
logs without restarting the server.
If IPMItool is installed in the server, you can use it to view the system-event log.
Most recent versions of the Linux operating system come with a current version of
IPMItool.
The following table describes the methods that you can use to view the event logs,
depending on the condition of the server. The first two conditions generally do not
require that you restart the server.

– To avoid straining the muscles in your back, lift by standing or by pushing
up with your leg muscles.
Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for the server, monitor, and other devices.
Back up all important data before you make changes to drives.
Have a small flat-blade screwdriver available.
To view the error LEDs on the system board and internal components, leave the
server connected to power.
You do not have to turn off the server to install or replace hot-swap fans,
redundant hot-swap ac power supplies, or hot-plug USB devices. However, you
must turn off the server before performing any steps that involve installing,
removing, or replacing adapter cables or non-hot-swap optional devices or
components.
After completing any installation, removal, or replacement procedure, reinstall
all safety shields, guards, labels, and ground wires.
v For a list of supported optional devices for the server, go to
http://www.lenovo.com/thinkserver.
v When working inside the server, you might find some tasks easier if you lay the
server on its side.
System reliability guidelines
To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that you follow
these guidelines:
v Every drive bay has an internal drive installed or an Electro Magnetic
Compatibility (EMC) shield installed.
v If the server has redundant power, every power supply bay has a power supply
assembly installed.
v Leave adequate space around the server to make sure that the server cooling
system works well.
v Properly route the cables. For some options, such as PCI cards, follow the
cabling instructions that come with the options.
v Make sure that you replace a failing fan within 48 hours.
v When replacing a hot-swap drive, install the new hot-swap drive within two
minutes of removal.
v Do not remove any air duct or air baffles while the server is running. Operating
the server without the air duct or air baffles might cause the microprocessor to
overheat.
v The second microprocessor socket always contains either a microprocessor socket
cover or a microprocessor.
Guidelines for trained service technicians
This section contains information for trained service technicians.
Inspecting for unsafe conditions
Use the information in this section to help you identify potential unsafe conditions
in a Lenovo product that you are working on. Each Lenovo product, as it was
designed and manufactured, has required safety items to protect users and service
technicians from injury. The information in this section addresses only those items.
Use good judgment to identify potential unsafe conditions that might be caused by
non-Lenovo alterations or attachment of non-Lenovo features or options that are
38
ThinkServer RD240 Types 1045, 1046, 1047, and 1048: Hardware Maintenance Manual
not addressed in this section. If you identify an unsafe condition, you must
determine how serious the hazard is and whether you must correct the problem
before you work on the product.
Consider the following conditions and the safety hazards that they present:
v Electrical hazards, especially primary power. Primary voltage on the frame can
cause serious or fatal electrical shock.
v Explosive hazards, such as a damaged CRT face or a bulging capacitor.
v Mechanical hazards, such as loose or missing hardware.
To inspect the product for potential unsafe conditions, complete the following
steps:
1. Make sure that the power is off and the power cord is disconnected.
2. Make sure that the exterior cover is not damaged, loose, or broken, and observe
any sharp edges.
3. Check the power cord:
v Make sure that the third-wire ground connector is in good condition. Use a
meter to measure third-wire ground continuity for 0.1 ohm or less between
the external ground pin and the frame ground.
v Make sure that the power cord is the correct type.
v Make sure that the insulation is not frayed or worn.
4. Remove the cover.
5. Check for any obvious non-Lenovo alterations. Use good judgment as to the
safety of any non-Lenovo alterations.
6. Check inside the server for any obvious unsafe conditions, such as metal
filings, contamination, water or other liquid, or signs of fire or smoke damage.
7. Check for worn, frayed, or pinched cables.
8. Make sure that the power-supply cover fasteners (screws or rivets) have not
been removed or tampered with.
Guidelines for servicing electrical equipment
Observe the following guidelines when servicing electrical equipment:
v Check the area for electrical hazards such as moist floors, nongrounded power
extension cords, power surges, and missing safety grounds.
v Use only approved tools and test equipment. Some hand tools have handles that
are covered with a soft material that does not provide insulation from live
electrical currents.
v Regularly inspect and maintain your electrical hand tools for safe operational
condition. Do not use worn or broken tools or testers.
v Do not touch the reflective surface of a dental mirror to a live electrical circuit.
The surface is conductive and can cause personal injury or equipment damage if
it touches a live electrical circuit.
v Some rubber floor mats contain small conductive fibers to decrease electrostatic
discharge. Do not use this type of mat to protect yourself from electrical shock.
v Do not work alone under hazardous conditions or near equipment that has
hazardous voltages.
v Locate the emergency power-off (EPO) switch, disconnecting switch, or electrical
outlet so that you can turn off the power quickly in the event of an electrical
accident.
Chapter 5. Replacing FRUs
39
v Disconnect all power before you perform a mechanical inspection, work near
power supplies, or remove or install main units.
v Before you work on the equipment, disconnect the power cord. If you cannot
disconnect the power cord, have the customer power-off the wall box that
supplies power to the equipment and lock the wall box in the off position.
v Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit. Check it to
make sure that it has been disconnected.
v If you have to work on equipment that has exposed electrical circuits, observe
the following precautions:
– Make sure that another person who is familiar with the power-off controls is
near you and is available to turn off the power if necessary.
– When you are working with powered-on electrical equipment, use only one
hand. Keep the other hand in your pocket or behind your back to avoid
creating a complete circuit that could cause an electrical shock.
– When you use a tester, set the controls correctly and use the approved probe
leads and accessories for that tester.
– Stand on a suitable rubber mat to insulate you from grounds such as metal
floor strips and equipment frames.
v Use extreme care when you measure high voltages.
v To ensure proper grounding of components such as power supplies, pumps,
blowers, fans, and motor generators, do not service these components outside of
their normal operating locations.
v If an electrical accident occurs, use caution, turn off the power, and send another
person to get medical aid.
Working inside the server with the power on
Attention
Static electricity that is released to internal server components when the server is turned on
might cause the server to halt, which might result in the loss of data. To avoid this
potential problem, always use an electrostatic-discharge wrist strap or other grounding
system when you work inside the server with the power on.
The server supports hot-swap devices and is designed to operate safely while it is
turned on and the cover is removed. Follow these guidelines when you work
inside the server with the power on:
v Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing on your forearms. Button long-sleeved
shirts before working inside the server; do not wear cuff links while you are
working inside the server.
v Do not allow your necktie or scarf to hang inside the server.
v Remove jewelry, such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, and loose-fitting wrist
watches.
v Remove items from your shirt pocket, such as pens and pencils. These items
might fall into the server as you lean over it.
v Avoid dropping any metallic objects into the server, such as paper clips,
hairpins, and screws.

Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention
Do not open the static-protective package containing the new part until the defective part
has been removed from the server and you are ready to install the new part. Static
electricity, although harmless to you, can seriously damage server components and parts.
When you handle server parts and components, take these precautions to avoid
static-electricity damage:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v Wear an electrostatic-discharge wrist strap, if one is available.
v Always carefully handle the parts and other components (such as PCI cards,
memory modules, system boards, and microprocessors) by its edges or its frame.
Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed circuitry.
v Prevent others from touching the parts and other computer components.
v Before you replace a new part, touch the static-protective package containing the
new part to a metal expansion-slot cover or other unpainted metal surface on
the server for at least two seconds. This reduces static electricity from the
package and your body.
v Remove the new part from the static-protective package and directly install it in
the server without placing it on any other surface. If it is hard for you to do this
in your specific situation, place the static-protective package of the new part on
a smooth, level surface, and then place the new part on the static-protective
package.
v Do not place the part on the server cover or other metal surface.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather. Heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.
This chapter provides detailed instructions for replacing FRUs in the server.

ThinkServer RD240 Types 1045, 1046, 1047, and 1048: Hardware Maintenance Manual
4. Depending on your RAID controller, you might need to install a ThinkServer
8708ELP SAS RAID adapter battery (hereafter referred to as the battery card
assembly) on the RAID controller. The battery card assembly mounts directly to
the RAID controller using a small board-to-board connector (daughtercard). To
install the battery card assembly on the RAID controller, do the following:
Notes:
a. The battery card assembly protects the integrity of the cached data on the
RAID controller by providing backup power up to 72 hours in the case of a
complete ac power failure or a brief power outage. It has built-in
functionality to charge the battery pack automatically and to communicate
battery status information such as voltage, temperature, and current to your
server. It also provides an inexpensive alternative to using an
uninterruptible power supply, and a second level of fault tolerance when
used in conjunction with an uninterruptible power supply. For more
information about the battery card assembly, see Appendix A, “RAID
battery card assembly,” on page 125.
b. The battery card assembly option kit contains a user guide, the battery card
assembly, and three Phillips-head screws. Do not remove the battery card
assembly from the antistatic shipping container until you are ready to install
it. When you remove the battery card assembly from your server, place it in
its original container.
c. Check the appropriate support Web sites for the latest updates for your
basic input/output system (BIOS) code, utility programs, device drivers,
and other software applications. Follow the instructions provided by your
Service Provider to download and install updates.
d. It is recommended that you replace the battery pack on the battery card
assembly annually or after 500 recharging cycles, whichever comes first.
e. The temperature of the battery card assembly is generally 15–20 degrees
higher than the ambient temperature during fast charge. Therefore, to
complete fast charge cycle, the ambient temperature should be less than 45
degrees. If the ambient temperature exceeds 45 degrees, the fast charge
cycle will terminate prematurely, thus preventing the battery card assembly
from reaching a fully charged state.
Attention:
v When attaching the battery card assembly to a PCI Express slot, center the
Phillips-head screw driver to avoid damaging the screw head and do not
over-tighten the screws as you might damage the battery card assembly.
v The battery in the battery card assembly must recharge for at least six hours
during fast charge under normal operating conditions.

Completing the parts replacement
This section provides instructions to help you complete the parts replacement and
turn on your server.
To complete the parts replacement, you must reinstall the server cover, reconnect
all the cables and, for some devices, run the Setup Utility program to do further
setup.
Installing the server cover
This section provides instructions on how to install the server cover.
Attention: For proper cooling and airflow, install the server cover before turning
on the server. Operating the server for extended periods of time (more than 30
minutes) with the cover removed might damage server components.
To install the server cover, do the following:
1. Make sure that all cables, add-on cards, and other components are installed and
seated correctly and that you have not left loose tools or parts inside the server.
Also, make sure that all internal cables are correctly routed.
2. Position the server cover on the chassis so that the rail guides on the bottom of
the server cover engage the rails. Then, slide the server cover to the front of the
server until it snaps into position and is closed. Then, tighten the thumbscrew
to secure the server cover.
Note: Although the server cover is secured by a thumbscrew, for safety
consideration, be sure to use a tool, for example a screw driver, to
tighten the thumbscrew and always make sure that the thumbscrew is
securely installed. Also, do not over-tighten the thumbscrew.
Connecting the cables
Attention:
To prevent damage to equipment, connect the power cords last.
If the server cables and connector panel have color-coded connectors, match the
color of the cable end with the color of the connector. For example, match a blue
cable end with a blue panel connector, a red cable end with a red connector, and so
on. See “Rear view” on page 29 for an illustration of the I/O connectors on the
rear of the server.
Turning on the server
When the server is connected to an ac power source but is not turned on, the
operating system does not run, and all core logic except for the service processor
(the integrated management module) is shut down; however, the server can
respond to requests to the service processor, such as a remote request to turn on
the server. The power-on LED flashes to indicate that the server is connected to an
ac power source but is not turned on.
Approximately five seconds after the server is connected to ac power, one or more
fans might start running to provide cooling while the server is connected to power
and the power-on button LED flashes quickly. Approximately one to three minutes
after the server is connected to ac power, the power-control button becomes active
(the power-on LED flashes slowly), and one or more fans might start running to
90
ThinkServer RD240 Types 1045, 1046, 1047, and 1048: Hardware Maintenance Manual
provide cooling while the server is connected to power. Then, you can turn on the
server by pressing the power button on the front control panel. See “Front control
panel” on page 30.
Updating the server configuration
When you turn on the server for the first time after you add or remove a device,
you might receive a message saying that the configuration has been changed. The
Setup Utility program starts automatically so that you can save the new
configuration settings. For more information, see Chapter 7, “Configuring the
server,” on page 105.
Some optional devices have device drivers that you must install. For information
about installing device drivers, see the documentation that comes with each device.
The server comes with at least one microprocessor. If more than one
microprocessor is installed, the server can operate as a symmetric multiprocessing
(SMP) server. You might have to upgrade the operating system to support SMP.
For more information, see the operating-system documentation.
If the server has an optional RAID controller and you have installed or removed a
hard disk drive, see the documentation that comes with the RAID controller for
information about reconfiguring the disk arrays.
Turning off the server
When you turn off the server and leave it connected to ac power, the server can
respond to requests to the service processor, such as a remote request to turn on
the server. While the server remains connected to ac power, one or more fans
might continue to run. To remove all power from the server, you must disconnect
it from the power source.
Some operating systems require an orderly shutdown before you turn off the
server. See your operating-system documentation for information about shutting
down the operating system.
Statement 5:
CAUTION:
The power control button on the device and the power switch on the power
supply do not turn off the electrical current supplied to the device. The device
also might have more than one power cord. To remove all electrical current from
the device, ensure that all power cords are disconnected from the power source.

is your responsibility. If Lenovo installs a self-service CRU at your request, you
will be charged for the installation.
v Optional-service customer replaceable unit: You may install an optional-service
CRU yourself or request Lenovo to install it, at no additional charge, under the
type of warranty service that is designated for your server.
v Field replaceable unit (FRU): FRUs must be installed only by trained service
technicians.
For information about the terms of the warranty and getting service and assistance,
see the Warranty and Support Information document.

Starting the Setup Utility program
To start the Setup Utility program, do the following:
1. Approximately three minutes after the server is connected to a working
electrical outlet, the power button becomes active. Turn on the server and the
POST runs automatically. You will then see the logo screen. The POST is a set
of tests and procedures that are performed each time you turn on your server.
2. Press Del as soon as you see the logo screen. The Setup Utility program opens.
If you have set an administrator password, you must type the administrator
password to access the full Setup Utility program menu. If you do not type the
correct administrator password, a limited Setup Utility program menu is
available.
Note: You can also press TAB as soon as you see the logo screen to review the
POST process and information.
3. The Setup Utility program menu lists various items about the system
configuration settings. Select the settings to view or change.
When working with the Setup Utility program, you must use the keyboard. The
keys used to perform various tasks are displayed at the bottom of each screen.
Note: Use the default setting for any item you are not familiar with. Do not
change the value of unfamiliar items or items that are not mentioned in this
manual to avoid any unexpected problems. If you cannot turn on the server
because of incorrect BIOS settings, refer to Table 6 on page 34 and use the
jumpers to clear CMOS and recover to the factory default settings.
Introduction of the BIOS items
The following tables list all the main menus and items in the Setup Utility
program. Some items might vary because of the BIOS updates.
Notes:
1. Use the default setting for any item you are not familiar with. Do not change
the value of unfamiliar items or items that are not mentioned in this manual to
avoid any unexpected problems. If you cannot turn on the server because of
incorrect BIOS settings, refer to Table 6 on page 34 and use the jumpers to clear
CMOS and recover to the factory default settings.
2. After updating the BIOS, all the BIOS settings become the default settings of
the updated BIOS version. You need to check and reconfigure the BIOS settings
for your specific needs.

SAS RAID settings
In the Adapter Properties window, select RAID Properties and press Enter. The
main window for SAS RAID setup is displayed.
The following list describes the items in the main window for SAS RAID setup:
v Create IM Volume: create RAID 1 including two hard disk drives to reserve
data. The default Status of the first hard disk drive is Primary.
The RAID 1 is also known as mirror image. The same data is written to the two
hard disk drives at the same time, which, however, operates as a single logical
hard disk drive in the operation system. Therefore, if one of the hard disk drives
failed, the other retains a complete copy of the data. The server can still work
normally. The data can be read from the two hard disk drives at the same time
to improve the speed of reading the hard disk drives. The RAID 1 only supports
the even number of hard disk drives.
v Create IME Volume: create RAID 1E, which can support the odd number of hard
disk drives configured in RAID1. The number of the hard disk drives can be
three to eight.
The RAID 1E mode stores data on all hard disk drives through stripping and
mirroring. The RAID 1E supports the odd number of the hard disk drives to
form an array, while at least three hard disk drives are required and at most
eight hard disk drives are required. The volume is n/2.
v Create IS Volume: create RAID 0, which supports two to eight hard disk drives.
The RAID 0 provides the non-redundant disk array with maximum I/O
performance by reading and writing the hard disk drives at the same time. With
accessing to multiple hard disk drives at the same time, RAID 0 reduces the
time delay caused by the hard disk drive mechanical system. It can improve the
performance of read and write operation. However, due to the lack of the
feature of the data redundancy, if any of the hard disk drives in the array failed,
it will cause data loss.

Configuring the Gigabit Ethernet controller
The Ethernet controllers are integrated on the system board. They provides an
interface for connecting to a 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1 Gbps network and provides
full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and
reception of data on the network. If the Ethernet ports in the server supports
auto-negotiation, the controllers detect the data-transfer rate (10BASE-T,
100BASE-TX, or 1000BASE-T) and duplex mode (full-duplex or half-duplex) of the
network and automatically operates at that rate and mode.
You do not have to set any jumpers or configure the controllers. However, you
must install a device driver to enable the operating system to address the
controllers.

In accordance with the European WEEE Directive, electrical and electronic
equipment (EEE) is to be collected separately and to be reused, recycled, or
recovered at end of life. Users of EEE with the WEEE marking per Annex IV of the
WEEE Directive, as shown above, must not dispose of end of life EEE as unsorted
municipal waste, but use the collection framework available to customers for the
return, recycling, and recovery of WEEE. Customer participation is important to
minimize any potential effects of EEE on the environment and human health due
to the potential presence of hazardous substances in EEE. For proper collection and
treatment, contact your local Lenovo representative.
Particulate contamination
Attention: Airborne particulates (including metal flakes or particles) and reactive
gases acting alone or in combination with other environmental factors such as
humidity or temperature might pose a risk to the server that is described in this
document. Risks that are posed by the presence of excessive particulate levels or
concentrations of harmful gases include damage that might cause the server to
malfunction or cease functioning altogether. This specification sets forth limits for
particulates and gases that are intended to avoid such damage. The limits must not
be viewed or used as definitive limits, because numerous other factors, such as
temperature or moisture content of the air, can influence the impact of particulates
or environmental corrosives and gaseous contaminant transfer. In the absence of
specific limits that are set forth in this document, you must implement practices
that maintain particulate and gas levels that are consistent with the protection of
human health and safety. If Lenovo determines that the levels of particulates or
gases in your environment have caused damage to the server, Lenovo may
condition provision of repair or replacement of servers or parts on implementation
of appropriate remedial measures to mitigate such environmental contamination.
Implementation of such remedial measures is a customer responsibility.
