Applying Power to the hp server
If you choose to use sleep states in conjunction with the hp server tc2120, refer to “Sleep States (ACPI)” later
in this section and your respective NOS.
Connecting the Power Cords
WARNING
For your safety always connect equipment to a grounded wall
outlet. Always use a power cord with a properly grounded
plug, such as the one provided with the equipment, or one in
compliance with your national safety standards. This
equipment can be disconnected from the power by removing
the power cord from the power outlet. This means the
equipment must be located close to an easily accessible power
outlet.
Setting the Input Voltage
Remove the warning label covering the power connector, and ensure that the voltage setting is correct for your
country. Slide the switch to change the setting.

Connecting the Power Cords
1. Connect the power cords to the rear of the monitor and the hp server. (The connectors are shaped to go in
one way only.)
2. Connect the monitor’s power cord and the hp server’s power cord to a grounded outlet. See Figure 1-4.
NOTE
Hewlett-Packard does not support power supply upgrades.
Power supply installation information is only intended to
assist with the replacement of a defective power supply unit.
For your safety, only replace your power supply unit with the
one provided by HP Support Services.

Chapter 1
Controls and Indicators
Powering-Up the Server
1. Turn on power to the monitor connected to the hp server. Turning on the monitor first ensures that video
output auto-configures properly as the server boots up. For information about connecting the monitor, see
“Connecting Peripheral Devices” in Chapter 3‚ Installing and Configuring.
2. Ensure that the Input Voltage selector switch is set for the correct input voltage.
3. Press the Power button on the lower front bezel. See Figure 1-1. When you press the power button on the
front bezel, the Server powers up and loads the operating system. The system runs a set of Power On Self
Tests (POST) during this process. For details refer to “Configuring the hp server tc2120” in Chapter 3‚
Installing and Configuring and Chapter 6‚ Troubleshooting.
NOTE
When you disconnect the hp server from AC power, the server
remembers the current power state (on or off) and returns to
this state when you reconnect to AC power.
Powering-Down the Server
1. Make sure that you have exited all applications.
2. Use the shut down command in your operating system.
3. When prompted, press the power button on the hp server. If you want to force the hp server to shut down
(for example after the operating system has crashed), press and hold down the power button for
approximately 5 seconds.
WARNING
The power supply will continue to provide standby current to
the Server until the power cord is disconnected from the rear
panel.
Connecting Power to Multiple-Server Configurations
The hp server temporarily draws a large “inrush current,” when first connected to an AC power source. This
also occurs when the Server is in a standby mode (power is turned off, but the power cord is plugged into AC
power). The inrush current is much greater than the Server’s normal operating current and generally, the AC
power source can handle the normal inrush current.
However, if you install several hp servers on one circuit, precautions are necessary. If there is a power failure
and power is then restored, all the servers immediately begin to draw inrush current at the same time. If the
circuit breakers on the incoming power line have insufficient capability, the breaker may trip and thus prevent
the servers from powering up.
When preparing your site for installation, allow for the additional inrush current. Refer to Chapter 9‚
Specifications.
Sleep States (ACPI)
The hp server supports the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) standard, which is a key
component of a NOS’s directed power management. The supported features are only available when an ACPIcompliant NOS is installed on the Server. The term “sleep state” refers to any of several reduced power
consumption states in which normal NOS activity has ceased.
The Server supports several sleep states. One of these is a “standby” sleep state, which has a short wake-up time.
In this sleep state the Server appears to be off—the monitor appears blank and there is no CD-ROM or internal
hard drive activity (IDE or SCSI); however, the power LED displays a blinking green light and the system fan
continues to operate.
5
Chapter 1
Controls and Indicators
The Server also may support another sleep state with a slower wake-up time, sometimes referred to as
“hibernate” by various operating systems. In this sleep state, the Server appears to be off as described earlier,
but the system fan and the front panel power LED are also turned off. The unique feature of this sleep state (and
the reason for its slower wake-up time) is that information about the Server’s NOS state (open applications,
screens, and so on) is saved to disk before the Server is placed in the sleep state. Upon wake-up, this information
is restored from disk. This method of restoring the Server’s operation is much faster than a complete rebooting
of the Server. It still requires running all the start-up self-tests before starting the NOS, but loading the NOS and
all the previously opened applications is much faster.
The Server supports certain types of system activity, which are used as wake-up events from these sleep states.
These wake-up events can be generated from the power button, keyboard or mouse activity, and scheduled
events.
NOTE
The hp server’s power management policies (transitions
between various power states) and the user options are
specific to the particular ACPI-compliant NOS installed on
the Server. If your NOS is ACPI-compliant, refer to the
(BIOS) Setup Utility and the power management features
provided in the NOS instructions for more information.
The hp server’s power button can be configured to initiate a graceful shutdown or “soft off” of the NOS rather
than an immediate shutdown of the power supply. The power button configurations are dependent on the user
interface provided by the ACPI-compliant NOS. While power management is under the control of the ACPIcompliant NOS, the hp server’s power button is capable of an override in case of a non-responsive NOS.
NOTE
The hp server power button will force a power down without
waiting for the NOS to gracefully shut down the Server, if the
power button is pressed and held for more than five seconds.
CAUTION
If the power button override is used, there is a strong
possibility of corrupted or lost data.
Refer to the BIOS Setup Utility in Chapter 3‚ Installing and Configuring and your NOS documentation for
instructions on setting up Sleep States and transitioning into and out of the various states.

Opening and Closing the hp server
This section describes how to remove and replace the left side cover and the upper front bezel of the
hp server tc2120.
WARNING
Before removing the cover, always disconnect the power cord
and unplug telephone cables. Disconnect the power cord to
avoid exposure to high energy levels that may cause burns
when parts are short-circuited by metal objects such as tools
or jewelry. Disconnect telephone cables to avoid exposure to
shock hazard from telephone ringing voltages.
The left side cover must be removed to access the internal components and mass storage devices; the upper
front bezel must be removed to access the mass storage devices in the front drive bays (or shelves). To remove
the upper front bezel, you first need to remove the left side cover.
NOTE
You do not need to remove the lower front bezel of the
hp server tc2120 to install internal accessories, such as
memory or mass storage.
Removing the Left Side Cover
To remove the left side cover, follow these steps: Switch off the monitor and hp server, and disconnect all power
cords and any telecommunication cables. If necessary, label each one to expedite re-assembly.

Mass Storage
This section describes how to install the internal mass storage devices, including the internal hard disk drives
(IDE or SCSI) and the optional tape backup (DAT) drive. The hp server tc2120 comes standard with one
flexible disk drive, one IDE CD-ROM, and at least one SCSI or IDE hard disk drive, depending on the model.
The mass storage cage can hold two hard disk drives. A third hard disk drive may be installed in the fourth drive
bay, located behind the upper front bezel.

Figure 3-5. Mass Storage Locations
Mass Storage Guidelines
•
General Guidelines
o Use care when unpacking and handling the hard disk drives.
The hard disk drives are very susceptible to mechanical shock and can be easily damaged by a drop as
short as one-quarter of an inch. If the drop would crack an egg, it will damage the drive.
o Do not stack drives.
o The server is internally limited to 6 mass storage shelves.
The flexible disk drive and CD-ROM drive, which are standard on all models of the hp server tc2120,
occupy shelves 1 and 2 respectively. The first four mass storage shelves may also be referred to as
common trays, or drive trays. See Figure 3-5.
•
IDE Devices
o The embedded IDE controller is an Enhanced-IDE dual channel controller and provides two connectors
(IDE-1 and IDE-2) for IDE devices.
Refer to “System Board Layout” in Chapter 9‚ Specifications.
o The IDE CD-ROM uses one connector on the cable from the IDE-2 connector, leaving one connector
for an optional third hard drive or IDE device on the IDE model. The CD-ROM is configured as the
master device, unless a third HDD is installed, which should be configured as the master device.
For the SCSI model the second IDE-2 connector could be used for any additional IDE device, such as
IDE hard drive.
o The primary IDE connector (IDE-1) and cable is used for the first or standard hard IDE drive and the
second optional hard drive.
17
Chapter 3
Installing and Configuring
The bundled IDE CD-ROM and hard disk drive were put on separate IDE connectors to improve
performance.
•
SCSI Devices
o Use only low voltage differential (LVD) SCSI devices.
o Do not use high voltage differential (HVD) SCSI devices in the server or damage to the controller and
other devices may occur.
o Ensure that the SCSI devices you install do not have terminations installed.
The SCSI drives are connected to a terminated cable and do not require termination on the SCSI drive.
o Use only HP Ultra 160 SCSI LVD (1-inch) low profile 3.5-inch hard disk drives for the hard disk drive
cage.
o The optional HP backup tape drive comes with a 50-to-68-pin adapter to connect to the 68-pin SCSI
connector on the SCSI cable used for connection of backup tape drive.
The optional HP backup tape drive may slow down access time for the Ultra-160 SCSI hard drives. If
this is the case, HP recommends adding another single channel SCSI controller to control the slower
backup tape drive.
Boot Priority
The hp server tc2120 is provided in two models, IDE or SCSI, and the model type affects the boot priority. The
hp server searches for bootable devices in a specific order, which is set up in the BIOS Setup Utility. The SCSI
Controller in the server scans for a boot device starting at device ID 0 and works up through the ID numbers (015). The SCSI controller board is always SCSI ID 7. The optional backup tape drive will use SCSI address ID 3.
NOTE
The boot order can be changed by pressing F8 during the
POST or by using the server’s (BIOS) Setup Utility. Refer to
“BIOS Setup Utility” later in this chapter for more
information. You may also activate the Network Boot by
pressing F12 during the POST.
Default Boot Order:
1. CD-ROM drive
2. Flexible disk drive

Installing and Configuring
Mass Storage Devices
This section provides the configuration of the IDE and SCSI mass storage devices in the hp server tc2120.
IDE Model Controller Configuration
The embedded IDE controller is available for both models (IDE or SCSI) of the hp server. The embedded IDE
controller is an Ultra ATA 33/66/100 dual channel controller, which provides IDE-1 and IDE-2 connectors.
Each channel can only control two IDE devices.
The IDE server model uses the IDE-1 for the boot drive and the IDE-2 connector for the IDE CD-ROM. The
BIOS Setup Utility can be used to change the boot order of the flexible disk drive and the IDE devices. Refer
to “BIOS Setup Utility” later in this chapter for more information.
SCSI Model Controller Configuration
The base SCSI model of the hp server tc2120 has at least one SCSI hard drive (shelf 5) located in the drive cage
and connected to the factory installed SCSI controller. The single channel SCSI controller board provided with
the SCSI model uses the SCSI Select Utility to control the SCSI controller board settings. If you order the SCSI
model, you typically do not need to configure the SCSI controller, because the utility will automatically
recognize all SCSI devices connected to it.
Run the SCSI Select Utility to verify or modify the SCSI controller settings, low-level format SCSI disks, or
verify SCSI media. Refer to “SCSI Configuration Utility” later in this chapter for further information.
The single channel Ultra-160 PCI SCSI controller board provided with the SCSI model includes three internal
SCSI connectors and is normally installed in PCI slot 1. Two of the internal connectors are used for legacy
products, and the third is used for your SCSI drives. The SCSI cable provided has 5 connectors, (4 for SCSI
devices and 1 for the SCSI controller board) and one terminator on the end of the cable.
CAUTION
You must not connect high voltage differential (HVD) SCSI
devices on the SCSI bus or you will damage the other LVD
SCSI devices.

Tested PCI Boards
For a list of tested PCI boards, check for compatibility in the Hardware Tested Products list for the hp server
tc2120 under the Technical Support topic for the specific NOS used in the server at HP’s web site at:
http://www.hp.com/
CAUTION
Some accessory board outputs may exceed U.S. National
Electrical code (NFPA 70) Class 2 or limited power source
limits and must use appropriate interconnecting cabling in
accordance with the National Electrical Code.
NOTE
All Hewlett-Packard accessory boards comply with the U.S.
National Electrical code (NFPA 70) Class 2.
Tools Required
These tools may be needed for preparing the accessory boards for installation in the server:
•
Torx T-15 screwdriver
•
¼-inch flat blade screwdriver
•
An anti-static service kit (3M 8501/8502/8503 or equivalent). This kit includes a static-dissipating work
surface, a chassis clip lead, and a wrist strap.
Guidelines
The following sections provide the guidelines necessary to install the PCI accessory boards into the server.
NOTE
Some full-length PCI boards may need a plastic “handle”
(board extension) on one end to stabilize the board in the
server. If the board requires one and it is not installed, you
may need to install the handle on the board, before installing it
in the hp server. See Figure 3-23.
IRQ Settings
The IRQ settings are automatically assigned and do not require user intervention. The hp server uses the Plugand-Play feature of the PCI boards to correctly assign its resources automatically.
Boot Priority
The server’s boot priority (BIOS search order for a boot drive) should be considered when selecting a PCI slot
on the system board. This is especially important if you are installing a board that requires an early number in
the boot order. The accessory board’s boot priority is set by its slot location in the boot order. See Figure 3-19.
If the single SCSI controller board is used to control internal SCSI drives (SCSI model), it will be early in the
boot order. The single SCSI controller board has two SCSI connectors, but only one SCSI connector can be
active at a time. The server scans the active SCSI connector for a boot device starting at device ID 0 and works
up from there.
36
Chapter 3
Installing and Configuring
By default the server searches for boot devices in the following order depending on the server model:
Default Boot Order:
1. CD-ROM drive
2. Flexible disk drive
3. IDE hard drive (if present)
4. SCSI hard drive in any PCI slot (if present)
5. Other bootable devices in any PCI slot)
NOTE
The boot order can be changed by pressing F8 during the
POST, or by using the server’s (BIOS) Setup Utility. For more
information, refer to “BIOS Setup Utility” later in this
chapter. You may also activate the Network Boot by pressing
F12 during the POST.

4 Diagnostics
When the server boots, a series of tests are displayed on the screen. The number of tests displayed depends on
the configuration of the server. The following are the types of errors you might get with the hp server.
• Built-in diagnostic error messages.
• BIOS and other error messages. These are errors detected by the system BIOS outside the built-in diagnostics or application errors.
To see the Power On Self-Tests (POST):
• The hp server must be functionally able to run the diagnostics.
• The video system must be functional.
• The keyboard must be functional.
NOTE
The BIOS ROM version number is displayed on the monitor
screen during power-up.
WARNING
Always turn off the power and disconnect the power cord to
the server before attempting to remove the cover and touch
the internal components. Failing to do so can expose you to
electric shock and damage the server’s components. The
power switch does NOT turn off standby power; you must
disconnect the power cord to turn off standby power.
Power-On Self Test (POST)
The diagnostics (Power-On Self-Tests, or POST) run automatically each time the server is powered on. These
diagnostics, which reside in the BIOS ROM, isolate server-related logic failures and indicate the board or
component that needs to be replaced, as indicated by the error messages. Most server hardware failures will be
accurately isolated by the diagnostics.
There are two types of error messages:
• Power-on self-test (POST) messages – These text messages display in normal video (white text on black
background). If a text message error occurs during the POST, details of the error are displayed. Follow the
instructions on the screen or refer to Table 4-1 in this section for instructions.
• Beep Codes – These are a series of audible beeps, which occur during the boot process before the video
display can initialize allowing the visual messages of the POST routines to appear. If you hear a series of
audible beeps before the video appears on screen, refer to the beep codes listed in Chapter 5‚ Error Messages.
Ιf no message appears (screen is blank), listen for the beep codes and refer to Chapter 5‚ Error Messages for
more information. If no message appears but the server stops after POST, see “Server Passes POST, but Does
Not Function” in Chapter 6‚ Troubleshooting. If an error message appears during POST, refer to Table 4-1 in
this chapter and follow the instructions provided. If the problem persists, refer to Chapter 6‚ Troubleshooting
or call your HP Customer Support provider for assistance.

hp server Diagnostics for Windows Utility
The purpose of hardware diagnostic software is to provide tools for checking hardware problems. By design,
diagnostic software executes simple tests of each hardware component. Usually such tests confirm that
hardware is not the source of server problems, allowing you to focus on other possible sources such as operating
system configuration parameters, network connections, and application software configuration parameters.
If hardware problems are confirmed, the diagnostic software program can sometimes detect and diagnose the
system or specific server component causing the problem. In addition, diagnostic tools can capture information
that allows support personnel to quickly assess the condition of the server.
In order to be effective, diagnostic software tools must be used in the context of a wider troubleshooting
procedure.

See the appropriate Network Interface Card documentation.
Symptom:
•
The NIC adapter cannot connect to the network.
Action:
1. Ensure the cabling is installed properly.
2. If you’re directly connecting two servers (with no hub or other device), use a “crossover” cable.
Most hub and switch connections require a straight-through cable; but consult the documentation.
3. Verify there are no resource conflicts between the NIC and any other accessories in the server.
4. Check the (BIOS) Setup Utility for resource conflicts.
To start the (BIOS) Setup Utility, boot or reboot the system and press F10 when prompted.
5. Check the LEDs on the adapter at the back of the server to see if any show activity.
No lit LEDs probably indicate a bad network cable, hub connection, or other network error.
6. Ensure you’re using the latest and most correct drivers.
7. Verify the drivers are intended for this NIC adapter.
8. Ensure the port on the switch or hub (or other device) has the same duplex setting as the adapter.
9. If you configured the adapter for full duplex, make sure the switch port is also configured for full duplex.
Setting the wrong duplex mode can degrade performance, cause data loss, or result in lost connections.
10. Test the adapter as directed in the installation tasks for each operating system.
11. Also check the “README” files on the support disk provided by the NIC adapter vendor.
Installation Problems
To troubleshoot an installation problem, you need to determine if the problem is hardware or software related.
