Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer
6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/6014P-82 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 preinstalled. 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 server 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 6014P-8/
6014P-8R/6014P-82R/6014P-82. 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 SuperServer 6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/6014P-82 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.

SUPERSERVER 6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/6014P-82 User's Manual
Choosing a Setup Location
- Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open
the front door completely (~25 inches).
- Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack
to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.
!
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 SCSI 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.

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.).

Installing the System into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the system into a rack unit
with the rack rails provided. If the system has already been mounted into a
rack, you can skip ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6. 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 Rack Sections
You should have received a rack mounting kit with the server. The kit
includes four rail sections for each side of the server. The two front
chassis rails have already been attached to the chassis. An additional
chassis rail and two rack rails (for each side of the servr) are also included
in the mounting kit. (See Figure 2-1).
Chassis Rails
The front chassis rails should have already been installed to the chassis
with flat head screws. Check to make sure that both are securely attached, then use screws to secure the rear chassis rails to the chassis so
that they are flush against the rear end of the front rails (see Figure 2-2).

Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Rack Rails
Begin by joining together the front and rear rack rails. Do this by inserting
the standoffs from one rail into the grooves of the other rail and then pulling
the rails in opposite directions so that the standoffs slide into the narrow
part of the groove.
Take this assembly and hold it up to the rack (at the desired height) to
determine the proper length - the standoffs/groove allows you to adjust the
length of the rail to fit the depth of the rack. After adjusting the rail assembly to the proper lenght, secure the it to the rack with the screws provided.
Then repeat the procedure for the other side, making sure both rails are
secured to the rack at the same height.
Locking Tabs
The chassis rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions. The first
is to lock the server into place when installed and pushed fully into the rack,
which is its normal position. Secondly, 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.

Installing the Server into the Rack
You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack unit.
The next step is to install the server into the rack. Do this by lining up the
rear of the chassis rails with the front of the rack rails. Slide the chassis
rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on both sides (you may
have to depress the locking tabs when inserting). See Figure 2-3.
When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should
hear the locking tabs "click". Finish by inserting and tightening the thumbscrews that hold the front of the server to the rack.

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After you install the 6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/6014P-82 in the rack,
you will need to open the top cover to make sure the serverboard is properly installed and all the connections have been made.
1.
Accessing the inside of the System (see Figure 2-5)
First, release the retention screws that secure the system to the rack.
Grasp the two handles on either side and pull the system straight out until
it locks (you will hear a "click"). Next, depress the two buttons on the top
of the chassis to release the top cover (1). Push the cover away from you
(toward the rear of the chassis) until it stops (2). You can then lift the top
cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.
To remove the system from the rack completely, depress the locking tabs in
the chassis rails (push the right-side tab down and the left-side tab up) to
continue to pull the system out past the locked position.
2.
Check the CPUs (processors)
You should have one or two processors already installed in the
serverboard. Each processor needs its own heatsink. See Chapter 5 for
instructions on processor and heatsink installation.
3.
Check the system memory
Your server system may have come with system memory already installed.
Make sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots. For details on adding
system memory, refer to Chapter 5.

Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the SCSI
drives and SCSI backplane have been properly installed and all connections
have been made.
1.
Accessing the drive bays
All drives are accessable from the front of the server. For servicing the
DVD-ROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove the top chassis cover.
The SCSI disk drives can be installed and removed from the front of the
chassis without removing the top chassis cover.
2.
DVD-ROM and floppy disk drives
A slim DVD-ROM and floppy drive should be preinstalled in your server.
Refer to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a DVD-ROM and/or floppy disk
drive to the system.
3.
Check the SCSI disk drives
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one
or more drives already installed. If you need to install SCSI drives, please
refer to Chapter 6.
4.
Check the airflow
Airflow is provided by five sets of 4-cm fans (each set of fans consists of
two fans that are mounted back to back). The system component layout
was carefully designed to direct sufficient cooling airflow to the components that generate the most heat. Note that all power and data cables
have been routed in such a way that they do not block the airflow generated by the fans.
5.
Supplying power to the system
The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug
the power cord(s) from the power supply module(s) into a high-quality
power strip that offers protection from electrical noise and power surges.
It is recommended that you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
source.

Overview
There are several LEDs on the chassis control panel as well as others on
the SCSI 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-button buttons located on the front of the chassis.
These are (in order from left to right) a UID button and a power on/off
button.
z
UID: Depressing the UID (unit identifier) button illuminates an LED on
both the front and rear of the chassis for easy system location in large
stack configurations (see page 5-21). The LED will remain on until the
button is pushed a second time. Another UID button on the rear of the
chassis serves the same function.
z
POWER: This is the main power switch, which is used to apply or
turn off the main system power. Turning off system power with this button
removes the main power but keeps standby power supplied to the system.

Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC814+S-560/SC814+S-R560
chassis has six LEDs, which provide you with critical information related to
different parts of the system. This section explains what each LED indicates when illuminated and any corrective action you may need to take.
z
UID: This LED turns on when either the front or the rear UID button is
pushed. Pushing either button a second time will turn this LED off.
z
Overheat/Fan Fail: When this LED flashes it indicates a fan failure.
When on continuously (on and not flashing) it indicates an overheat condition, which may be caused by cables obstructing the airflow in the system
or the ambient room temperature being too warm. Check the routing of the
cables and make sure all fans are present and operating normally. You
should also check to make sure that the chassis covers are installed. Finally, verify that the heatsinks are installed properly (see Chapter 5). This
LED will remain flashing or on as long as the overheat condition exists.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself
from harm and the system from damage:
z 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.
z Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
z Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing
or installing main system components, such as the serverboard,
memory modules and the CD-ROM and floppy drives (not necessary
for SCSI drives). When disconnecting power, you should first power
down the system with the operating system and then unplug the
power cords of all the power supply modules in the system.
z 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.
z
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.
z
Do not use mats designed to decrease electrostatic discharge as
protection from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have
been specifically designed as electrical insulators.

z Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the
onboard battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its
polarities. This battery must be replaced only with the same or an
equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used
batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions. See Figure
4-1.
z CD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with
a CD-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.

General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
z Keep the area around the SuperServer 6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/
6014P-82 clean and free of clutter.
z
The SuperServer 6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/6014P-82 weighs
approximately 42 to 45 lbs (19.1 to 20.5 kg) when fully loaded. 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.
z Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been
removed away from the system or on a table so that they won't
accidentally be stepped on.
z
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.
z
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
4-2
Artisan Technology Group - Quality Instrumentation ... Guaranteed | (888) 88-SOURCE | www.artisantg.com

power is present.
z After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up
and secure it to the rack unit with the retention screws 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:
z Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
z Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their
antistatic bags until ready for use.
z Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its
antistatic bag.
z 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.
z Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components,
peripheral chips, memory modules or contacts.
z When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
z Put the serverboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags
when not in use.
z For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides
excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting
fasteners and the serverboard.

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.

Connecting Cables
Now that the processors are installed, the next step is to connect the
cables to the serverboard. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the
peripherals and control panel and the power cables.
Connecting Data Cables
The ribbon 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 keep
them routed 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 motherboard connector locations noted) should be connected. See the serverboard layout figure in this chapter for connector
locations.
z Ultra320 SCSI cable (JA1)
z DVD-ROM cable (JIDE2)
z Floppy drive cable (JFDD1)
z Control panel cable (JF1, see next page)
z COM port cable (COM1)
Connecting Power Cables
The X6DHP-8G/X6DHP-8G2 has a 24-pin primary ATX power supply connector designated "JPW1" for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate connector from the power supply to the JPW1 connector to supply power to the serverboard. The 12V 8-pin power connector at
JPW2 must also be connected to your power supply. See the Connector
Definitions section in this chapter for power connector pin definitions.

Installing Memory
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules:
http://www.supermicro.com/support/resources/
CAUTION
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM
modules to prevent any possible damage. Also note that the
memory is interleaved to improve performance (see step 1).
DIMM Installation (Figures 5-5a and 5-5b)
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory sockets, starting
with Bank #1A. The memory scheme is interleaved so you must install
two modules at a time, beginning with DIMM #1A, then DIMM #1B, and
so on.
2. Insert each DIMM module vertically into its socket. Pay attention to the
notch along the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the DIMM
module incorrectly.
3. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the
sockets. Repeat for all modules (see step 1 above).

but have only been verified for up to 1 GB modules. Both employ an
interleaved memory configuration, which requires modules of the same size
and speed to be installed in pairs. You should not mix modules of different
sizes and/or speeds.
Memory Speed Jumpers (X6DHP-8G only)
Depending on what type of memory you use, you may need to change the
XJ4F1 and XJ4F2 (Memory Speed Select) jumpers. See pages 5-10, 5-11
and 5-20 for details.

To Install: Insert module vertically and press down until it snaps into
place. Pay attention to the bottom notch.
To Remove: Use your thumbs to gently push each release tab outward
to free the DIMM from the slot.

Adding PCI Cards
1.
PCI slots
Your system should come with one or two riser cards to acommodate the
use of one or two PCI expansion cards. The number and type of cards
supported by each server system is shown below.
6014P-8/6014P-82: supports the use of one standard size (full-height fulllength) 133 and 100 MHz PCI-X add-on cards or two PCI-Express x8 add-on
cards or a combination thereof (with a maximum of one PCI-X 133 card).
6014P-8R/6014P-8G2: supports the use of one standard size (full-height
full-length) 133 or 100 MHz PCI-X or one PCI-Express x8 add-on card.

Notes: (L) refers to left and (R) refers to right-side slots when viewed
from the front of the chassis. "Boxed" riser cards are included with the
system (in the accessory box). A PCI-X slot and a PCI-E slot together
constitute a Universal PCI slot. If both riser cards are to be used on the
6014P-8/6014P-82, you must install the right-side riser card (when viewed
from front of the system) first.
2.
PCI card installation
Before installing a PCI add-on card, make sure you install it into the riser
card and slot that supports the speed of the card (see step 1 above you may need to change the installed riser card with a boxed one to
support the type of add-on card you wish to install).
Begin by swinging out the release tab on the PCI slot shield that corresponds to the riser slot you wish to populate. Insert the PCI card into the
correct riser slot, pushing down with your thumbs evenly on both sides
of the card. Finish by pushing the release tab back to its original (locked)
position. Follow this procedure when adding a card to the other slot (if
applicable).

identified with a square solder pad
on the printed circuit board. See
the serverboard layout pages for
jumper locations.

CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS (which 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.

Advanced Chassis Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform
maintenance on the SC814+S-560/SC814+S-R560 chassis. For component
installation, follow the steps in the order given to eliminate the most common
problems encountered. If some steps are unnecessary, skip ahead to the
next step.
Tools Required
The only tool you will need to install components and perform maintenance
is a Philips screwdriver.

Static-Sensitive Devices
Electricstatic discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle
them very carefully. The following measures are generally sufficient to
protect your equipment from ESD damage.
Precautions
z Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
z Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic bag.
z Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
z When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
z Put the serverboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
z For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting
fasteners and the serverboard.

Control Panel
The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected
to the JF1 connector on the serverboard to provide you with system status
indications. A ribbon cable has bundled these wires together to simplify the
connection. Connect the cable from JF1 on the serverboard to the appropriate header on the Control Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure
the red wire plugs into pin 1 on both connectors. Pull all excess cabling out
of the airflow path.
The control panel LEDs inform you of system status. See "Chapter 3:
System Interface" for details on the LEDs and the control panel buttons.
Details on JF1 can be found in "Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup."

System Fans
Five 4-cm fans provide the cooling for the 6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/
6014P-82. Each fan unit is actually made up of two fans joined back-toback, which rotate in opposite directions. This counter-rotating action generates exceptional airflow and works to dampen vibration levels. These
fans can adjust their speed according to the heat level sensed in the system, which results in more efficient and quieter fan operation. Fan speed is
controlled by a setting in BIOS (see page 7-16). Each fan in a set has its
own separate tachometer.
It is very important that the chassis top cover is properly installed for the
airflow to circulate properly through the chassis and cool the components.
System Fan Failure
If a fan fails, the remaining fans 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). Remove the top chassis cover (instructions
on p. 2-8) while the system is still running to determine which of the five
fan units has failed. Then power down the system before replacing a fan.
Removing the power cord(s) is also recommended as a safety precaution.
Replacing System Cooling Fans
1.
Removing a fan
After turning off the power to the system, first remove the chassis cover
(refer to page 6-7) and unplug all the fan cables from the motherboard.
Grasp the rectangular housing that holds all the fan units and lift it out of
the chassis (see Figure 6-2). Push the failed fan out through the bottom of
the fan housing.
2.
Installing a new fan
Replace the failed fan with an identical 4-cm, 12 volt fan (available from
Supermicro: p/n FAN-0079). Push 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.
Reposition the fan housing back over the two mounting posts in the chassis, then reconnect the fan wires to the same chassis fan headers you
removed them from. Power up the system and check that the fan is working properly and that the LED on the control panel has turned off. Finish by
replacing the chassis cover.

SCSI Drive Installation
1.
Mounting a SCSI drive in a drive carrier
The SCSI drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation
and removal from the chassis. These carriers also help promote proper
airflow for the SCSI drive bays. For this reason, even empty carriers
without SCSI drives installed must remain in the chassis. To add a new
SCSI drive, install a drive into the carrier with the printed circuit board side
toward the carrier so that the mounting holes align with those in the carrier
(3a). Secure the drive to the carrier with three screws on each side (3b),
as shown in Figure 6-3.

Use caution when working around the SCSI 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 SCSI hard drives
are installed, all SCSI drive carriers must remain in the
drive bays for proper airflow.

Installing/removing hot-swap SCSI drive carrier
The SCSI drive bays are located in the front of the chassis, making them
easily accessible for installation and removal. The SCSI drives are hotswap units, meaning that they can be installed and removed while the system is running. To remove a SCSI drive, first push the colored release
button located beside the drive's LEDs (1) , then swing the handle fully out
(2a) and use it to pull the SCSI drive carrier straight out (2b) (Figure 6-4).

DVD-ROM and Floppy Drive Installation
The top cover of the chassis must be opened to gain full access to the
DVD-ROM and floppy drive bays. The 6014P-8/6014P-8R/6014P-82R/6014P82 accomodates only slim DVD-ROM and floppy drives. Side mounting
brackets are needed to mount a slim DVD-ROM drive in the server.
You must power down the system before installing or removing a floppy or
DVD-ROM drive. First, release the retention screws that secure the server
unit to the rack. Grasp the two handles on either side and pull the unit
straight out until it locks (you will hear a "click"). Next, depress the two
buttons on the top of the chassis to release the top cover and at the same
time, push the cover away from you until it stops. You can then lift the top
cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.
With the chassis cover removed, unplug the power and data cables from
the drive you want to remove. Then 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. Pull the tab away from the drive and push the drive unit out
the front of the chassis. 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. Remember to reconnect the data and power cables
to the drive before replacing the chassis cover and restoring power to the
system. Please be aware of the following:
• The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.
• A color mark on a cable typically designates the location of pin 1.

Power Supply
6014P-8R/6014P-82R
The SuperServer 6014P-8R/6014P-82R has a redundant 560 watt redundant
power supply configuration consisting of two hot-swappable power modules. Each power supply module has an auto-switching capability, which
enables it to automatically sense and operate with a 100V - 240V input
voltage.
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 Power On LED on the control panel will turn yellow and remain on until
the failed module has been replaced. Replacement modules can be ordered
directly from Supermicro (see contact information in the Preface). The
power supply modules have a hot-swap capability, meaning you can replace the failed module without powering down the system.
Removing/Replacing the Power Supply
You do not need to shut down the system to replace a power supply
module. The redundant feature will keep the system up and running while
you replace the failed hot-swap module. Replace with the same model SP562-1S (p/n PWS-0057), which can be ordered directly from Supermicro
(see Contact Information in the Preface).
1.
Removing the power supply
First unplug the power cord from the failed power supply module.
To
remove the failed power module, first locate the colored release tab (1).
Push the tab to the right (2) and then pull the module straight out with the
handle provided (3) (Figure 6-5, single power supply server shown). The
power supply wiring was designed to detach automatically when the module is pulled from the chassis.
2.
Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed hot-swap module with another SP562-1S power supply
module (p/n PWS-0057). Simply push the new power supply module into
the power bay until you hear a click. Finish by plugging the AC power cord
back into the module.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
6014P-8/6014P-82
The SuperServer 6014P-8/6014P-82 has a single 560 watt cold-swap
power supply, which is auto-switching capable. This enables it to automatically sense and operate with 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 the power supply module fails, the system will shut down and you will
need to replace the module. Replacements can be ordered directly from
Supermicro (see contact information in the Preface). As there is only one
power supply module in the 6014P-8, power must be completely removed
from the server before removing and replacing the power supply for whatever reason.
Removing/Replacing the Power Supply
1.
Removing the power supply
First turn the power switch on the control panel off, then unplug the power
cord from the system. To remove the failed power module, first locate the
colored release tab (1). Push the tab to the right (2) and then pull the
module straight out with the handle provided (3) (Figure 6-5). The power
supply wiring was designed to detach automatically when the module is
pulled from the chassis.
2.
Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed power supply with another SP562-1S power supply module (p/n PWS-0057). Carefully insert the new power supply into the open
bay and push it completely into the chassis until you hear a clicking sound,
meaning it has been fully inserted. Finish by reconnecting the AC power
cord and depressing the power button on the chassis front control panel.

Reconfiguring the Power Supply
Although the standard configuration for the 6014P-8/6014P-82 and 6014P8R/6014P-82R is with single and dual (redundant) power supplies respectively, you can reconfigure the 6014P-8/6014P-82 to hold two power supply
modules or (not recommended) the 6014P-8R/6014P-82R to hold a single
power supply module. The alternate backpanel section you will need for
either operation has been included with the system.
Note: in the following instructions, "right" and "left" refers to the side noted
when viewed from the rear of the system.
Reconfiguring the 6014P-8/6014P-82 (see Figure 6-6)
1. You will first need to power down the system and remove the power
cord. To gain access to the inside of the system, pull the server out from
the rack and remove the top chassis cover by following the instructions on
page 2-8.
2. Remove any expansion card that may be installed in the right-side riser
card.
3. Remove the three screws that secure the riser card bracket, which runs
from the primary ATX power connector to the rear of the chassis. After
the screws are removed, lift the riser card bracket out from the chassis.

supply is inserted), there is a vertical shield that protects the second power
supply slot. Remove this shield by grasping and forcibly pulling it off the
cover that protects the power distribution board.
5. Remove the COM port header from the backpanel while keeping it connected to the serverboard.
6. Remove the three screws (two on the bottom and one on the side) that
secure the right backpanel section to the chassis, then remove the
backpanel section (Figure 6-6, step 1). Locate the alternate backpanel
section (included in the accessory box) and attach it to the backpanel with
the same screws you just removed (Figure 6-6, step 2).
7. Reattach the COM port header to the space provided in the new
backpanel section.
8. Reinstall the riser card bracket.
9. Insert a new power supply module, pushing it all the way into the empty
bay until it clicks into place.
10. Replace the chassis cover, push the system back into the rack and
reconnect the power cords (to both power modules now). Power up the
system.
Reconfiguring the 6014P-8R/6014P-82R (see Figure 6-7)
Reconfiguring the 6014P-8R/6014P-82R as a single power supply system is
not recommended by Supermicro. However, if you do wish to reconfigure
the system in this way, please carefully follow the instructions below.
1. You will first need to power down the system and remove the power
cords from both power modules, as well as the left-side (when viewed
from the rear of the system) power supply. To gain access to the inside of
the system, pull the server out from the rack and remove the top chassis
cover by following the instructions on page 2-8.
2. Once the cover is removed and you have full access to the inside of the
system, begin by removing the three screws that secure the riser card
bracket, which runs from the primary ATX power connector to the rear of
the chassis. After the screws are removed, lift the riser card bracket out
from the chassis.

4. Remove the three screws (two on the bottom and one on the side) that
secure the right backpanel section to the chassis, then remove the
backpanel section (Figure 6-6, step 2). Locate the alternate backpanel
section and attach it to the backpanel with the same screws you just removed (Figure 6-6, step 1).
5. Pull the left-side (when viewed from the rear of the system) power
supply out of the chassis. Note that the power distribution board contacts
for this power supply are now exposed. Supermicro does not supply a
shield to protect these contacts, you must do so on your own.
6. Reinstall the riser card bracket.
7. You may now add a left-side riser card (purchased separately*) and a
PCI-X/PCI-Express expansion card in the space vacated by the second
power supply module, if desired.
8. Reattach the COM port header to the space provided in the new
backpanel section.
9. Replace the chassis cover, push the system back into the rack and
reconnect the power cord (to only a single power module now). Power up
the system.
* CSE-RR1U-X (for PCI-X cards) or CSE-RR1U-EL (for PCI-Express cards).
!
Important: Reconfiguring the 6014P-8R/6014P-82R as a single power
supply system is not recommended. If you do reconfigure the
6014P-8R/6014P-82R, it is extremely important that you install a
shield (not included) to protect the power distribution board contacts that were used by the second power supply module (see
step 5 above).

Introduction
This chapter describes the Phoenix BIOS™ Setup utility for the X6DHP-8G/
X6DHP-8G2. The Phoenix ROM BIOS is stored in a flash chip and can be
easily upgraded using a floppy disk-based program. Due to periodic
changes in the BIOS, some settings may have been added or deleted that
might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer to the Manual Download area of the Supermicro web site (www.supermicro.com) for any such
changes.
Starting the Setup Utility
To enter the BIOS Setup Utility, hit the <Delete> key while the system is
booting-up. (In most cases, the <Delete> key is used to invoke the BIOS setup
screen. There are a few cases when other keys are used, such as <F1>,
<F2>, and so on.)
Each main BIOS menu option is described in this manual. The Main BIOS
screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the options that can
be configured. “Grayed-out” options cannot be configured. The right frame
displays the key legend. Above the key legend is an area reserved for a
text message. When an option is selected in the left frame, it is highlighted
in white. Often a text message will accompany it. (Note: BIOS has default
text messages built in. Supermicro retains the option to include, omit, or
change any of these text messages.) Options printed in Bold are the
default settings.
The BIOS setup/utility uses a key-based navigation system called hot keys.
Most of these hot keys (<F1>, <F10>, <Enter>, <ESC>, <Arrow> keys, etc.)
can be used at any time during the setup navigation process.
Note: fan speed is controlled by the "Fan Speed Control Mode" setting in
BIOS. The default BIOS setting for this server is "3-pin (Server)" (see
page 7-16).

This section lists the POST (Power On Self Test) codes for the PhoenixBIOS. POST
codes are divided into two categories: recoverable and terminal.
Recoverable POST Errors
When a recoverable type of error occurs during POST, the BIOS will display
a POST code that describes the problem. BIOS may also issue one of the
following beep codes:
1 long and two short beeps - video configuration error
1 continuous long beep - no memory detected
Terminal POST Errors
If a terminal type of error occurs, BIOS will shut down the system. Before
doing so, BIOS will write the error to port 80h, attempt to initialize video and
write the error in the top left corner of the screen.

Appendix B
Software Installation
After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure the
Adaptec Embedded Serial ATA RAID Driver before you install the
Windows operating system. The necessary drivers are all included on
the Supermicro bootable CDs that came packaged with your motherboard.
(For Adaptec's SCSI Host RAID Utility, please refer to the CDs that came
with your motherboard.)
B-1 Adaptec Embedded SATA RAID Controller Driver
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface. It uses a single cable
with a minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between
devices. SATA is a serial link which supports transfer rates from 150
MBps. Because the serial cables used in SATA are thinner than the traditional cables used in Parallel ATA (PATA), SATA systems have better airflow and can be installed in smaller chassis than Parallel ATA. In addition,
the cables used in PATA can only extend to 40cm long, while SATA cables
can extend up to one meter. Overall, SATA provides better functionality than
PATA.
Configuring BIOS settings for the SATA RAID Functions
1. Press the Del key during system bootup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If it is the first time to power on the system, we recommend that
you load the Optimized Default Settings. If you have already done so,
please skip to Step 3.
2. Use the arrow keys to select the "Exit" Menu. Once in the "Exit" Menu,
scroll down the menu to select the item "Load Optimized Default Settings"
and press the Enter key. Select OK to confirm the selection. Press the
Enter key to load the default settings to the BIOS.
3. Use the arrow keys to select the "Main" Menu in BIOS.
4. Scroll down to the item "SATA RAID Enable", select Enabled and
press Enter.

Adaptec Embedded SATA with HostRAID Controller
Driver
Adaptec's Embedded Serial ATA RAID with HostRAID controller adds
RAID functionality to the Serial ATA I/O controller by supporting RAID 0
(Striping) or RAID 1 (Mirroring) to enhance the industry's pioneer PCI-toe host controller products. RAID striping (RAID 0) can greatly improve
hard disk I/O performance because of its capability in striping data
across multiple drives. RAID mirroring (RAID 1) allows the data to be
simultaneously written to two drives, so critical data is always available
even if one hard disk fails.
Due to this built-in functionality, your Supermicro motherboard is specially
designed to keep pace with the increasing performance demands of
today's computer systems by improving disk I/O throughput and providing
data accessibility regardless of a single disk failure. By incorporating
Adaptec Embedded Serial ATA into the motherboard design, Supermicro
offers the user the benefits of SATA RAID without the high costs associated with RAID hardware.
Note: For Adaptec's RAID Driver Installation Instructions, please refer to
the Adaptec RAID Controller User's Guide: "Emb_SA_RAID_UG.pdf",
which is located in the CD that came with this motherboard. You can
also download a copy of Adaptec's User's Guide from our website at
www.supermicro.com.

Notes
1. Before adding a new drive to an array, back up any data contained on
the new drive. Otherwise, all data will be lost.
2. If you stop the build or clear process on a RAID 1 from ACU, you can
restart it by pressing Ctrl+R.
3. A RAID 1 created using the Quick Init option may return some data miscompares if you later run a consistency check. This is normal and is not a
cause for concern.
4. The ACU allows you to use drives of different sizes in a RAID. However,
during a build operation, only the smaller drive can be selected as the
source or first drive.
5. When migrating from single volume to RAID 0, migrating from a larger
drive to a smaller drive is allowed. However, the destination drive must be
at least half the capacity of the source drive.
6. Adaptec does not recommend that you migrate or build an array on
Windows dynamic disks (volumes), as it will result in data loss.
Warning: Do not interrupt the creation of RAID 0 using the Migrate option.
If you do, you will not be able to restart or to recover the data that was on
the source drive.
