Operations
Power up the server blade
The Onboard Administrator initiates an automatic power-up sequence when the server blade is installed.
If the default setting is changed, use one of the following methods to power up the server blade:
•
Use a virtual power button selection through iLO 2.
•
Press and release the Power On/Standby button.
When the server blade goes from the standby mode to the full power mode, the system power LED
changes from amber to green.
For more information about the Onboard Administrator, see the HP BladeSystem c7000 Enclosure Setup
and Installation Guide on the documentation CD.
For more information about iLO 2, see "iLO 2 Standard Blade Edition technology (on page 54)."
Power down the server blade
Before powering down the server blade for any upgrade or maintenance procedures, perform a backup
of critical server data and programs.
Depending on the Onboard Administrator configuration, use one of the following methods to power down
the server blade:
•
Use a virtual power button selection through iLO 2.
This method initiates a controlled remote shutdown of applications and the OS before the server
blade enters standby mode.
•
Press and release the Power On/Standby button.
This method initiates a controlled shutdown of applications and the OS before the server blade
enters standby mode.
•
Press and hold the Power On/Standby button for more than 4 seconds to force the server blade to
shut down.
This method forces the server blade to enter standby mode without properly exiting applications and
the OS. It provides an emergency shutdown method in the event of a hung application.
IMPORTANT: When the server blade is in standby mode, auxiliary power is still being
provided. To remove all power from the server blade, remove the server blade from the
enclosure.
After initiating a virtual power down command, be sure that the server blade goes into standby mode by
observing that the system power LED is amber.

DDR2 FBDIMMs.
Hardware options installation
28
CAUTION: Use only HP FBDIMMs. FBDIMMs from other sources may adversely affect data
integrity.
Memory configurations
The server blade supports the following AMP options to optimize server blade availability:
•
Advanced ECC supporting up to 64 GB of active memory using 4-GB FBDIMMs.
•
Online Spare Memory supporting up to 56 GB of active memory and 8 GB of online spare memory
using 4-GB FBDIMMs. Online Spare Memory provides additional protection against degrading
memory.
•
Mirrored memory supporting up to 32 GB of active memory and 32 GB of mirrored memory using
4-GB FBDIMMs. Mirrored memory provides protection against failed memory.
For the latest memory configuration information, see the QuickSpecs on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/go/bizsupport).
FBDIMM installation guidelines
The following configuration requirements apply to single-rank and dual-rank FBDIMMs:
•
FBDIMMs must be 667-MHz DDR2 FBDIMMs.
•
FBDIMMs must be installed in pairs.
•
FBDIMM pairs in the same memory bank must have identical HP part numbers.
•
FBDIMMs must be populated as shown in the following table for the designated AMP mode.
Multiple memory modes are supported, based on FBDIMM population and AMP mode selection. The
server blade defaults to Advanced ECC. If the FBDIMM population is modified after the memory mode is
selected in RBSU, and no longer supports the selected mode, the system defaults to Advanced ECC during
POST.
If the server blade contains more than 4 GB or more of memory, consult the operating system
documentation about accessing the full amount of installed memory.
Advanced ECC memory configuration
Advanced ECC memory is the default memory protection mode for this server blade. In Advanced ECC,
the server blade is protected against correctable memory errors. The server blade provides notification if
the level of correctable errors exceeds a pre-defined threshold rate. The server blade does not fail
because of correctable memory errors. Advanced ECC provides additional protection over Standard ECC
because it is possible to correct certain memory errors that would otherwise be uncorrectable and result in
a server blade failure.
Whereas standard ECC can correct single-bit memory errors, Advanced ECC can correct single-bit
memory errors and multi-bit memory errors if all failed bits are on the same DRAM device on the
FBDIMM.
In addition to general configuration requirements, Advanced ECC memory also has the following
configuration requirements:
•
FBDIMMs must be installed in pairs unless operating in single-FBDIMM mode.
Hardware options installation
29
•
FBDIMMs must be installed in sequential order, beginning with bank A.
For Advanced ECC mode, populate the FBDIMM slots as specified in the following table:

After installing FBDIMMs, use RBSU to verify the that the server blade is configured for Advanced ECC
operation ("Configuring Advanced ECC memory" on page 51).
Online spare memory configuration
Online spare memory provides protection against degrading FBDIMMs by reducing the likelihood of
uncorrectable memory errors. This protection is available without any operating system support.
An understanding of single-rank and dual-rank FBDIMMs is required to understand memory usage in
online spare mode. FBDIMMs can either be single-rank or dual-rank. Certain FBDIMM configuration
requirements are based on these classifications. A dual-rank FBDIMM is similar to having two single-rank
FBDIMMs on the same module. Although only a single FBDIMM module, a dual-rank FBDIMM acts as two
separate FBDIMMs. The purpose of dual-rank FBDIMMs is to provide the largest capacity FBDIMM for the
current DRAM technology. If the current DRAM technology allows for 2-GB single-rank FBDIMMs, a dualrank FBDIMM using the same technology would be 4-GB.
In online spare mode, a single rank of memory acts as the spare memory. For single-rank FBDIMMs, the
entire FBDIMM acts as the spare memory. For a dual-rank FBDIMM, only half of the FBDIMM acts as the
spare memory while the other half is available for operating system and application usage.
If one of the non-spare FBDIMMs receives correctable memory errors at a higher rate than a specific
threshold, the server blade automatically copies the memory contents of the degraded rank to the online
spare rank. The server blade then deactivates the failing rank and automatically switches over to the
online spare. Because FBDIMMs that experience a high rate of correctable memory errors also have a
higher probability of receiving an uncorrectable memory error, this configuration reduces the likelihood of
uncorrectable memory errors that would result in server blade downtime.
Online spare is performed per branch of the memory controller. For a server blade with both branches
populated, two ranks are used for online spare memory. One branch can fail over to the associated
online spare while the other branch is still protected.
Each branch is made up of four banks:
•
Branch 0 contains banks A, C, E, and G
•
Branch 1 contains banks B, D, F, and H

In addition to general configuration requirements, all populated banks on a branch must contain
FBDIMMs with identical part numbers.

*Configuration 1 is only supported with dual-rank FBDIMMs.
After installing FBDIMMs, use RBSU to configure the system for online spare memory support
("Configuring online spare memory" on page 51).
Mirrored memory configuration
Mirroring provides protection against uncorrectable memory errors that would otherwise result in server
blade downtime.
Mirroring is performed on the branch level. Branch 0 and branch 1 mirror each other.
Each branch maintains a copy of all memory contents. Memory writes go to both branches. Memory
reads come from only one of the two branches (unless an uncorrectable error occurs). If a memory read
on one branch returns incorrect data due to an uncorrectable memory error, the system automatically
retrieves the proper data from the other branch. A branch is not necessarily disabled (thus losing
mirroring protection) because of a single uncorrectable error. Mirroring protection is not lost because of
soft or transient uncorrectable errors, resulting in systems that maintain mirroring protection (and thus
improved uptime) unless there is an actual hardware or FBDIMM failure. In addition, a system maintains
proper operation unless an uncorrectable error occurs on both branches.
In addition to general configuration requirements, mirrored memory FBDIMM configuration also has the
following requirements:
•
Banks A and B must be fully populated with FBDIMMs with identical part numbers.
•
Banks C and D must contain FBDIMMs with identical part numbers, if installed.
•
Banks E and F must contain FBDIMMs with identical part numbers, if installed.
•
Banks G and H must contain FBDIMMs with identical part numbers, if installed.
For mirrored memory mode, populate the FBDIMM slots as specified in the following table:

HP BladeSystem c-Class Advanced management
iLO 2 is a standard component of ProLiant c-Class server blades that provides server health and remote
server blade manageability. Its features are accessed from a network client device using a supported web
browser. In addition to other features, iLO 2 provides remote keyboard, mouse, and video (text and
graphics) capability for a server blade, regardless of the state of the host OS or host server blade.
iLO 2 includes an intelligent microprocessor, secure memory, and a dedicated network interface. This
design makes iLO 2 independent of the host server blade and its OS. iLO 2 provides remote access to
any authorized network client, sends alerts, and provides other server blade management functions.
Using a supported web browser, you can:
•
Remotely access the console of the host server blade, including all text mode and graphics mode
screens with full keyboard and mouse controls.
•
Remotely power up, power down, or reboot the host server blade.
•
Remotely boot a host server blade to a virtual media image to perform a ROM upgrade or install an
OS.
•
Send alerts from iLO 2 regardless of the state of the host server blade.
•
Access advanced troubleshooting features provided by iLO 2.
•
Launch a web browser, use SNMP alerting, and diagnose the server blade with HP SIM.
•
Configure static IP bay settings for the dedicated iLO 2 management NICs on each server blade in
an enclosure for faster deployment.
To connect to the server blade using iLO 2, install the server blade in an enclosure. Onboard
Administrator assigns an IP address to enable iLO 2 connectivity to the server blade.
The c-Class tab enables you to control specific settings for the HP BladeSystem. iLO 2 also provides webbased status for the HP BladeSystem configuration.
For detailed information about iLO 2, refer to the HP Integrated Lights-Out User Guide on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out).
Network-based PXE deployment
PXE is a component of the Intel® WfM specification. The PXE model enables server blades to load and
execute an NBP from a PXE server and to execute a pre-configured image. The image can be an OS
image created by software utilities or a boot diskette image. This feature enables a user to configure a
server blade and install an OS over a network.
Deployment overview
When a PXE-enabled target server blade boots, it obtains an IP address from a DHCP server. The target
server blade obtains the name of the NBP from the appropriate boot server. Then, the target server blade
uses TFTP to download the NBP from the boot server and executes the image.
IMPORTANT: To connect to a network with a Pass-Thru module, always connect the Pass-Thru
module to a network device that supports Gigabit speed.
For each server blade being deployed, the PXE server must be connected to the NIC designated for PXE.
The server blade defaults PXE functions to NIC 1, but any of the NC series NICs in the server blade can
Software and configuration utilities 43
be designated for PXE in RBSU. For NIC connector locations, refer to the documentation included with the
server blade.
NOTE: Actual NIC numeration depends on several factors, including the OS installed on the
server blade.
To deploy an OS to multiple server blades, install a PXE deployment server on a network.
Deployment infrastructure
IMPORTANT: To connect to a network with a Pass-Thru module, always connect the Pass-Thru
module to a network device that supports Gigabit speed.

of a bootable diskette.
•
PXE deployment (on page 45)
•
CD-ROM deployment (on page 46)
•
Diskette image deployment (on page 47)
PXE deployment
PXE enables server blades to load an image over the network from a PXE server, and then execute it in
memory. The first NIC on the server blade is the default PXE boot NIC, but any of the other NC series
NICs can be configured to boot PXE. For more information, refer to "Network-based PXE deployment (on
page 43)."
NOTE: Actual NIC numeration depends on several factors, including the OS installed on the
server blade.
HP recommends using one of the following methods for PXE deployment:
•
HP ProLiant Essentials RDP ("HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack" on page 46)
•
SmartStart Scripting Toolkit (on page 46)
Software and configuration utilities 45
A number of third-party PXE deployment tools are available for Windows® and Linux. For additional
information, refer to the HP website
(ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/management/pxe_wp.pdf).
HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack
NOTE: To deploy server blades in an existing server blade enclosure, always use the most
recent version of RDP available at the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/rdp).
The RDP software is the preferred method for rapid, high-volume server deployments. The RDP software
integrates two powerful products: Altiris Deployment Solution and the HP ProLiant Integration Module.
The intuitive graphical user interface of the Altiris Deployment Solution console provides simplified pointand-click and drag-and-drop operations that enable you to deploy target servers, including server blades,
remotely. It enables you to perform imaging or scripting functions and maintain software images.
For more information about the RDP, refer to the HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack CD or
refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/servers/rdp).
SmartStart Scripting Toolkit
The SmartStart Scripting Toolkit is a server deployment product that delivers an unattended automated
installation for high-volume server deployments. The SmartStart Scripting Toolkit is designed to support
ProLiant BL, ML, and DL servers. The toolkit includes a modular set of utilities and important documentation
that describes how to apply these new tools to build an automated server deployment process.
Using SmartStart technology, the Scripting Toolkit provides a flexible way to create standard server
configuration scripts. These scripts are used to automate many of the manual steps in the server
configuration process. This automated server configuration process cuts time from each server deployed,
making it possible to scale server deployments to high volumes in a rapid manner.
For more information, and to download the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit, refer to the HP website
(http://www.hp.com/servers/sstoolkit).
CD-ROM deployment
CD-ROM deployment involves using a bootable CD that executes scripts to configure the hardware and
install the OS. After the OS is configured, the server blade can access the network to locate the scripts
and files necessary for deployment. Before beginning the deployment process, connect the server blade to
the network.
NOTE: For more information about hardware and cabling configurations, see the documents
that ship with the enclosure.
Two methods are available for CD-ROM deployment:
•
iLO virtual CD-ROM
•
USB CD-ROM
iLO virtual CD-ROM
To deploy with a boot CD:
1.
Do one of the following:
o
Insert the boot CD into the client PC that is using the iLO 2 Remote Console.
Software and configuration utilities 46
o
Use iLO 2 to create an image file of the boot CD.
o
Copy the image of the boot CD to a location on the network or the client PC hard drive.
2.
Remotely access the server blade through iLO 2. Refer to "HP BladeSystem c-Class advanced
management (on page 43)."
3.
Click the Virtual Devices tab.
4.
Select Virtual Media.
5.
Use the Virtual Media applet to select the local CD or image file and connect the Virtual CD to the
server blade.
6.
Use the iLO 2 Virtual Power Button feature to reboot the server blade.
7.
After the server blade boots, follow the normal network installation procedure for the OS.
USB CD-ROM
This method uses SmartStart to facilitate loading the OS. However, SmartStart also allows for manual
loading of the OS and drivers.
To deploy with a boot CD:
1.
Use the local I/O cable to connect a USB CD-ROM drive to the server blade. Refer to "Connecting
locally to a server blade with video and USB devices (on page 38)."
2.
Insert the boot CD into the USB CD-ROM drive.
3.
Reboot the server blade.
4.
After the server blade boots, follow the normal installation procedure for an OS.
Windows Server™ 2003 cannot be installed from a USB CD-ROM on the I/O cable if the hard drive is
completely blank (no partitions defined). To install Windows Server™ 2003, use one of the following
methods:
•
Make a partition on the hard drive that Windows Server™ 2003 will be loaded on.
•
Use the SmartStart CD 7.60 or later.
•
Use the Rapid Deployment Pack. For instructions, see the HP website
(http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/rdp.html?jumpid=reg_R1002_USE
N).
Diskette image deployment
To deploy with a diskette image, the user creates a DOS-based network-enabled boot diskette that
executes a script that configures the hardware and installs the OS. The diskette enables the server blade
to access the required deployment scripts and files on the network.
This method implies a deployment infrastructure that may include an administrator workstation, PXE
server, Microsoft® Windows® file share, or a Linux file share. For more information, refer to "Deployment
infrastructure (on page 44)."
Before beginning the deployment process, connect the server blade to the network.
NOTE: For more information about hardware and cabling configurations, see the documents
that ship with the enclosure.

Automatic Server Recovery
ASR is a feature that causes the system to restart when a catastrophic operating system error occurs, such
as a blue screen, ABEND, or panic. A system fail-safe timer, the ASR timer, starts when the System
Management driver, also known as the Health Driver, is loaded. When the operating system is
functioning properly, the system periodically resets the timer. However, when the operating system fails,
the timer expires and restarts the server.
ASR increases server availability by restarting the server within a specified time after a system hang or
shutdown. At the same time, the HP SIM console notifies you by sending a message to a designated
pager number that ASR has restarted the system. You can disable ASR from the HP SIM console or
through RBSU.

Symptom information
Before troubleshooting a server problem, collect the following information:
•
What events preceded the failure? After which steps does the problem occur?
•
What has been changed since the time the server was working?
•
Did you recently add or remove hardware or software? If so, did you remember to change the
appropriate settings in the server setup utility, if necessary?
•
How long has the server exhibited problem symptoms?
•
If the problem occurs randomly, what is the duration or frequency?
To answer these questions, the following information may be useful:
•
Run HP Insight Diagnostics (on page 57) and use the survey page to view the current configuration
or to compare it to previous configurations.
•
Refer to your hardware and software records for information.
•
Refer to server LEDs and their statuses.
Prepare the server for diagnosis
1.
Be sure the server is in the proper operating environment with adequate power, air conditioning,
and humidity control. Refer to the server documentation for required environmental conditions.
2.
Record any error messages displayed by the system.
3.
Remove all diskettes and CDs from the media drives.
4.
Power down the server and peripheral devices if you will be diagnosing the server offline. Always
perform an orderly shutdown, if possible. This means you must:
a. Exit any applications.
b. Exit the operating system.
c.
Power down the server ("Power down the server blade" on page 13).
5.
Disconnect any peripheral devices not required for testing (any devices not necessary to power up
the server). Do not disconnect the printer if you want to use it to print error messages.
6.

Electrostatic discharge
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the
system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage
system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic
discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords.
To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet
when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller
install the part.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.

Customer Self Repair
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow
for greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period HP (or HP
service providers or service partners) identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR
part, HP will ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts:
Technical support 86
•
Mandatory—Parts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these
parts, you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service.
•
Optional—Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for
customer self repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, there may or may not be
additional charges, depending on the type of warranty service designated for your product.
NOTE: Some HP parts are not designed for customer self repair. In order to satisfy the customer
warranty, HP requires that an authorized service provider replace the part. These parts are identified as
"No" in the Illustrated Parts Catalog.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography
permits. If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help
you over the telephone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a
defective part must be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you
must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days.
The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material.
Failure to return the defective part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self
repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used.
For more information about HP's Customer Self Repair program, contact your local service provider. For

Les produits HP comportent de nombreuses pièces CSR (Customer Self Repair = réparation par le client)
afin de minimiser les délais de réparation et faciliter le remplacement des pièces défectueuses. Si pendant
la période de diagnostic, HP (ou ses partenaires ou mainteneurs agréés) détermine que la réparation peut
être effectuée à l'aide d'une pièce CSR, HP vous l'envoie directement. Il existe deux catégories de pièces
CSR:
•
Obligatoire - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est obligatoire. Si vous demandez à
HP de remplacer ces pièces, les coûts de déplacement et main d'œuvre du service vous seront
facturés.
•
Facultatif - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est facultative. Ces pièces sont
également conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la réparation. Toutefois, si vous
demandez à HP de remplacer ces pièces, l'intervention peut ou non vous être facturée, selon le type
de garantie applicable à votre produit.
REMARQUE: Certaines pièces HP ne sont pas conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la
réparation. Pour que la garantie puisse s'appliquer, HP exige que le remplacement de la pièce soit
effectué par un Mainteneur Agréé. Ces pièces sont identifiées par la mention "Non" dans le Catalogue
illustré.
Les pièces CSR sont livrées le jour ouvré suivant, dans la limite des stocks disponibles et selon votre
situation géographique. Si votre situation géographique le permet et que vous demandez une livraison le
jour même ou dans les 4 heures, celle-ci vous sera facturée. Pour bénéficier d'une assistance
téléphonique, appelez le Centre d'assistance technique HP. Dans les documents envoyés avec la pièce de
rechange CSR, HP précise s'il est nécessaire de lui retourner la pièce défectueuse. Si c'est le cas, vous
devez le faire dans le délai indiqué, généralement cinq (5) jours ouvrés. La pièce et sa documentation
doivent être retournées dans l'emballage fourni. Si vous ne retournez pas la pièce défectueuse, HP se
réserve le droit de vous facturer les coûts de remplacement. Dans le cas d'une pièce CSR, HP supporte
Technical support 87
l'ensemble des frais d'expédition et de retour, et détermine la société de courses ou le transporteur à
utiliser.
Pour plus d'informations sur le programme CSR de HP, contactez votre Mainteneur Agrée local. Pour plus

Riparazione da parte del cliente
Per abbreviare i tempi di riparazione e garantire una maggiore flessibilità nella sostituzione di parti
difettose, i prodotti HP sono realizzati con numerosi componenti che possono essere riparati direttamente
dal cliente (CSR, Customer Self Repair). Se in fase di diagnostica HP (o un centro di servizi o di
assistenza HP) identifica il guasto come riparabile mediante un ricambio CSR, HP lo spedirà direttamente
al cliente per la sostituzione. Vi sono due categorie di parti CSR:
•
Obbligatorie – Parti che devono essere necessariamente riparate dal cliente. Se il cliente ne affida
la riparazione ad HP, deve sostenere le spese di spedizione e di manodopera per il servizio.
•
Opzionali – Parti la cui riparazione da parte del cliente è facoltativa. Si tratta comunque di
componenti progettati per questo scopo. Se tuttavia il cliente ne richiede la sostituzione ad HP,
potrebbe dover sostenere spese addizionali a seconda del tipo di garanzia previsto per il prodotto.
NOTA: alcuni componenti HP non sono progettati per la riparazione da parte del cliente. Per rispettare
la garanzia, HP richiede che queste parti siano sostituite da un centro di assistenza autorizzato. Tali parti
sono identificate da un "No" nel Catalogo illustrato dei componenti.
In base alla disponibilità e alla località geografica, le parti CSR vengono spedite con consegna entro il
giorno lavorativo seguente. La consegna nel giorno stesso o entro quattro ore è offerta con un
supplemento di costo solo in alcune zone. In caso di necessità si può richiedere l'assistenza telefonica di
un addetto del centro di supporto tecnico HP. Nel materiale fornito con una parte di ricambio CSR, HP
specifica se il cliente deve restituire dei componenti. Qualora sia richiesta la resa ad HP del componente
difettoso, lo si deve spedire ad HP entro un determinato periodo di tempo, generalmente cinque (5) giorni
lavorativi. Il componente difettoso deve essere restituito con la documentazione associata nell'imballo di
spedizione fornito. La mancata restituzione del componente può comportare la fatturazione del ricambio
da parte di HP. Nel caso di riparazione da parte del cliente, HP sostiene tutte le spese di spedizione e
resa e sceglie il corriere/vettore da utilizzare.
Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma CSR di HP contattare il centro di assistenza di zona. Per il
programma in Nord America fare riferimento al sito Web HP (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Customer Self Repair
HP Produkte enthalten viele CSR-Teile (Customer Self Repair), um Reparaturzeiten zu minimieren und
höhere Flexibilität beim Austausch defekter Bauteile zu ermöglichen. Wenn HP (oder ein HP
Servicepartner) bei der Diagnose feststellt, dass das Produkt mithilfe eines CSR-Teils repariert werden
kann, sendet Ihnen HP dieses Bauteil zum Austausch direkt zu. CSR-Teile werden in zwei Kategorien
unterteilt:
•
Zwingend – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren zwingend vorgegeben ist. Wenn Sie
den Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen, werden Ihnen die Anfahrt- und Arbeitskosten
für diesen Service berechnet.
•
Optional – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren optional ist. Diese Teile sind auch für
Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Wenn Sie jedoch den Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen
Technical support 88
lassen möchten, können bei diesem Service je nach den für Ihr Produkt vorgesehenen
Garantiebedingungen zusätzliche Kosten anfallen.
HINWEIS: Einige Teile sind nicht für Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Um den Garantieanspruch des
Kunden zu erfüllen, muss das Teil von einem HP Servicepartner ersetzt werden. Im illustrierten Teilekatalog
sind diese Teile mit „No“ bzw. „Nein“ gekennzeichnet.
CSR-Teile werden abhängig von der Verfügbarkeit und vom Lieferziel am folgenden Geschäftstag
geliefert. Für bestimmte Standorte ist eine Lieferung am selben Tag oder innerhalb von vier Stunden gegen
einen Aufpreis verfügbar. Wenn Sie Hilfe benötigen, können Sie das HP technische Support Center
anrufen und sich von einem Mitarbeiter per Telefon helfen lassen. Den Materialien, die mit einem CSRErsatzteil geliefert werden, können Sie entnehmen, ob das defekte Teil an HP zurückgeschickt werden
muss. Wenn es erforderlich ist, das defekte Teil an HP zurückzuschicken, müssen Sie dies innerhalb eines
vorgegebenen Zeitraums tun, in der Regel innerhalb von fünf (5) Geschäftstagen. Das defekte Teil muss
mit der zugehörigen Dokumentation in der Verpackung zurückgeschickt werden, die im Lieferumfang
enthalten ist. Wenn Sie das defekte Teil nicht zurückschicken, kann HP Ihnen das Ersatzteil in Rechnung
stellen. Im Falle von Customer Self Repair kommt HP für alle Kosten für die Lieferung und Rücksendung auf
und bestimmt den Kurier-/Frachtdienst.
Weitere Informationen über das HP Customer Self Repair Programm erhalten Sie von Ihrem Servicepartner
vor Ort. Informationen über das CSR-Programm in Nordamerika finden Sie auf der HP Website unter
(http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparaciones del propio cliente
Los productos de HP incluyen muchos componentes que el propio usuario puede reemplazar (Customer
Self Repair, CSR) para minimizar el tiempo de reparación y ofrecer una mayor flexibilidad a la hora de
realizar sustituciones de componentes defectuosos. Si, durante la fase de diagnóstico, HP (o los
proveedores o socios de servicio de HP) identifica que una reparación puede llevarse a cabo mediante el
uso de un componente CSR, HP le enviará dicho componente directamente para que realice su
sustitución. Los componentes CSR se clasifican en dos categorías:
•
Obligatorio: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es obligatoria. Si
solicita a HP que realice la sustitución de estos componentes, tendrá que hacerse cargo de los
gastos de desplazamiento y de mano de obra de dicho servicio.
•
Opcional: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es opcional. Estos
componentes también están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Sin embargo,
si precisa que HP realice su sustitución, puede o no conllevar costes adicionales, dependiendo del
tipo de servicio de garantía correspondiente al producto.
NOTA: Algunos componentes no están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Para
que el usuario haga valer su garantía, HP pone como condición que un proveedor de servicios
autorizado realice la sustitución de estos componentes. Dichos componentes se identifican con la palabra
"No" en el catálogo ilustrado de componentes.
Según la disponibilidad y la situación geográfica, los componentes CSR se enviarán para que lleguen a
su destino al siguiente día laborable. Si la situación geográfica lo permite, se puede solicitar la entrega
en el mismo día o en cuatro horas con un coste adicional. Si precisa asistencia técnica, puede llamar al
Centro de asistencia técnica de HP y recibirá ayuda telefónica por parte de un técnico. Con el envío de
materiales para la sustitución de componentes CSR, HP especificará si los componentes defectuosos
deberán devolverse a HP. En aquellos casos en los que sea necesario devolver algún componente a HP,
deberá hacerlo en el periodo de tiempo especificado, normalmente cinco días laborables. Los
componentes defectuosos deberán devolverse con toda la documentación relacionada y con el embalaje
Technical support 89
de envío. Si no enviara el componente defectuoso requerido, HP podrá cobrarle por el de sustitución. En
el caso de todas sustituciones que lleve a cabo el cliente, HP se hará cargo de todos los gastos de envío
y devolución de componentes y escogerá la empresa de transporte que se utilice para dicho servicio.

Customer Self Repair
Veel onderdelen in HP producten zijn door de klant zelf te repareren, waardoor de reparatieduur tot een
minimum beperkt kan blijven en de flexibiliteit in het vervangen van defecte onderdelen groter is. Deze
onderdelen worden CSR-onderdelen (Customer Self Repair) genoemd. Als HP (of een HP Service Partner)
bij de diagnose vaststelt dat de reparatie kan worden uitgevoerd met een CSR-onderdeel, verzendt HP
dat onderdeel rechtstreeks naar u, zodat u het defecte onderdeel daarmee kunt vervangen. Er zijn twee
categorieën CSR-onderdelen:
•
Verplicht: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant verplicht is. Als u HP verzoekt deze
onderdelen voor u te vervangen, worden u voor deze service reiskosten en arbeidsloon in rekening
gebracht.
•
Optioneel: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant optioneel is. Ook deze onderdelen zijn
ontworpen voor reparatie door de klant. Als u echter HP verzoekt deze onderdelen voor u te
vervangen, kunnen daarvoor extra kosten in rekening worden gebracht, afhankelijk van het type
garantieservice voor het product.
OPMERKING: Sommige HP onderdelen zijn niet ontwikkeld voor reparatie door de klant. In verband
met de garantievoorwaarden moet het onderdeel door een geautoriseerde Service Partner worden
vervangen. Deze onderdelen worden in de geïllustreerde onderdelencatalogus aangemerkt met "Nee".
Afhankelijk van de leverbaarheid en de locatie worden CSR-onderdelen verzonden voor levering op de
eerstvolgende werkdag. Levering op dezelfde dag of binnen vier uur kan tegen meerkosten worden
aangeboden, indien dit mogelijk is gezien de locatie. Indien assistentie gewenst is, belt u een HP Service
Partner om via de telefoon technische ondersteuning te ontvangen. HP vermeldt in de documentatie bij het
vervangende CSR-onderdeel of het defecte onderdeel aan HP moet worden geretourneerd. Als het defecte
onderdeel aan HP moet worden teruggezonden, moet u het defecte onderdeel binnen een bepaalde
periode, gewoonlijk vijf (5) werkdagen, retourneren aan HP. Het defecte onderdeel moet met de
bijbehorende documentatie worden geretourneerd in het meegeleverde verpakkingsmateriaal. Als u het
defecte onderdeel niet terugzendt, kan HP u voor het vervangende onderdeel kosten in rekening brengen.
Bij reparatie door de klant betaalt HP alle verzendkosten voor het vervangende en geretourneerde
onderdeel en kiest HP zelf welke koerier/transportonderneming hiervoor wordt gebruikt.
Neem contact op met een Service Partner voor meer informatie over het Customer Self Repair programma
van HP. Informatie over Service Partners vindt u op de HP website
(http://www.hp.nl/services/servicepartners).
Reparo feito pelo cliente
Os produtos da HP são projetados com muitas peças para reparo feito pelo cliente (CSR) de modo a
minimizar o tempo de reparo e permitir maior flexibilidade na substituição de peças com defeito. Se,
durante o período de diagnóstico, a HP (ou fornecedores/parceiros de serviço da HP) concluir que o
reparo pode ser efetuado pelo uso de uma peça CSR, a peça de reposição será enviada diretamente ao
cliente. Existem duas categorias de peças CSR:
Technical support 90
•
Obrigatória – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é obrigatório. Se desejar que a HP substitua
essas peças, serão cobradas as despesas de transporte e mão-de-obra do serviço.
•
Opcional – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é opcional. Essas peças também são projetadas
para o reparo feito pelo cliente. No entanto, se desejar que a HP as substitua, pode haver ou não a
cobrança de taxa adicional, dependendo do tipo de serviço de garantia destinado ao produto.
OBSERVAÇÃO: Algumas peças da HP não são projetadas para o reparo feito pelo cliente. A fim de
cumprir a garantia do cliente, a HP exige que um técnico autorizado substitua a peça. Essas peças estão
identificadas com a marca "No" (Não), no catálogo de peças ilustrado.
Conforme a disponibilidade e o local geográfico, as peças CSR serão enviadas no primeiro dia útil após
o pedido. Onde as condições geográficas permitirem, a entrega no mesmo dia ou em quatro horas pode
ser feita mediante uma taxa adicional. Se precisar de auxílio, entre em contato com o Centro de suporte
técnico da HP para que um técnico o ajude por telefone. A HP especifica nos materiais fornecidos com a
peça CSR de reposição se a peça com defeito deve ser devolvida à HP. Nos casos em que isso for
necessário, é preciso enviar a peça com defeito à HP dentro do período determinado, normalmente
cinco (5) dias úteis. A peça com defeito deve ser enviada com a documentação correspondente no
material de transporte fornecido. Caso não o faça, a HP poderá cobrar a reposição. Para as peças de
reparo feito pelo cliente, a HP paga todas as despesas de transporte e de devolução da peça e
determina a transportadora/serviço postal a ser utilizado.
Para obter mais informações sobre o programa de reparo feito pelo cliente da HP, entre em contato com
o fornecedor de serviços local. Para o programa norte-americano, visite o site da HP
