Server Features
Expansion Slots
There are six total I/O expansion slots.
■
■
Five 64-bit PCI Hot Plug slots:
G
Pre-installed Compaq NC Fast Ethernet Dual 10/100 Network
Interface Controller (upgradeable to a gigabyte)
G
Four available slots
One shared 64-bit PCI/ISA slot is available.
NOTE: The ISA slot is for modem use only.
PCI Hot Plug
PCI Hot Plug provides the ability to remove and replace, upgrade, and add PCI
expansion boards without powering down the server. Any PCI board can be
placed in a PCI Hot Plug slot. PCI Hot Plug device drivers and operating
system support, however, are required in order to enable the PCI Hot Plug.
A next-generation PCI Hot Plug button allows PCI Hot Plug access directly at
each PCI slot, providing PCI Hot Plug control directly at the server without
requiring, but still compatible with, the PCI Hot Plug utility software.
For more information about the PCI Hot Plug, see the Documentation CD and
the Systems Reference CD, included in the Reference Information pack.
System Fans
The Compaq ProLiant 6400R server includes hot-plug, redundant fans that
provide high-level thermal protection throughout your entire system. All fans
run at all times. The system can cool with only two CPU fans running. Hotplug redundant fans protect the server from overheating and possible system
interruption. A failed fan generates a system alert. The system prompts you to
replace the failed fan and enables the hot-plug secondary or redundant CPU
fan to take over automatically.

Comparing memory and 3.3-V powered PCI Expansion Board power.
Each additional 512 MB draws approximately as much current as one to
two PCI boards.
■
Comparing hard drive and 5-V powered PCI Expansion Board Power.
One PCI card draws as much current as two to five hard drives.
■
In general, PCI array controllers draw more current than PCI NICs.
Memory Board Features
■

Expandable to 4-GB (16 x 256-MB DIMMs)
G
16-, 32-, 64-, 128-, 256-MB, and 4- or 8-K refreshed DIMMs
installed in sets of four (bank)
G
Supports up to four memory banks, with each consisting of four
DIMMs. One bank is installed or removed at a time. Each DIMM of
a given bank must be of the same size, type, and speed. However, to
maintain 50-ns timing support, all four banks must contain only 50ns DIMMs. If mixed with slower (for example, 60-ns) DIMMs, the
memory speed is reduced to the slowest DIMMs.
Configuring your memory to take advantage of Address Bit Permuting
can enhance performance. See Chapter 3.

Compaq ProLiant 6400R Setup and Installation Guide
Preparing the Server
Optimum Environment
When installing your ProLiant 6400R server in a rack, temperature standards
and power requirements must be met.
Space Requirements
Consider the following when deciding where to install your Compaq rack:
■
Clearance in the front of the rack should be a minimum of 25 inches for
servicing.
■
Clearance in the back of the rack should be a minimum of 30 inches for
servicing and adequate airflow.
Power Requirements
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, fire, or damage to the
equipment, do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to
the rack. Consult the electrical authority with jurisdiction over your facility wiring
and installation requirements.
IMPORTANT: Because of the 100- to 120-VAC electrical rating of each power supply,
some local electrical authorities may require either one 15-A circuit for each power supply
or one 20-A circuit for each pair of power supplies.
■
The power load must be balanced between available AC supply branch
circuits.
■
The overall system AC current load must not exceed 80 percent of the
branch circuit AC current rating.
■
If power strips are used, the load should not exceed 80 percent of the
marked electrical current rating on the power strip.
The installation of the equipment must comply with local and regional
electrical regulations governing the installation of information technology
equipment by licensed electricians. The equipment is designed to operate in
installations covered by the National Electric Code (ANSI/NFPA 70, 1993).
The equipment is also designed to operate in installations covered by the code
for the Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing Equipment (NFPA75, 1992).

Rack-Mountable Server Installation
For electrical power ratings on options, see the product rating label or user
documents supplied with the option.
Grounding Requirements
NOTE: The use of common power outlet strips for this equipment is not recommended.
For proper operation and safety, the equipment must be properly grounded. In
the United States, install the equipment according to NFPA 70-1993 (National
Electric Code) Article 250, as well as any local and regional building codes. In
Canada, install the equipment according to the Canadian Standards
Association, CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code. In all other countries the
installation should comply with any regional or national electrical wiring
codes, such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 364, parts
1 through 7. All power distribution devices used in the installation including
branch wiring and receptacles, should be listed or certified ground devices.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electrical shock from high-leakage currents, a
reliable grounded (earthed) connection is essential before connecting the unit to
an AC supply.
Because of the higher ground leakage currents of the equipment, Compaq
recommends the use of a power distribution unit (PDU) that provides a
supplementary ground conductor. Connect the supplementary ground
conductor permanently to a suitable building ground terminal.
Temperature Requirements
To ensure continued safe, reliable operation of the equipment, install the
system in a well ventilated, climate-controlled environment.
The Compaq maximum recommended ambient operating temperature for most
server products is 35°C (95°F). The temperature in the room where the rack is
located should not exceed 35°C (95°F).
The operating temperature inside the rack is always higher than the room
temperature and depends on the configuration of equipment in your rack.
Check the maximum internal rack temperature for each piece of equipment
before installation. The maximum temperatures for your configuration should
not exceed the values shown in Table 2-1.

CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing thirdparty options,
■
Ensure that the optional equipment does not impede airflow to the
rack-mountable ProLiant 6400R server or increase the internal rack
temperature beyond the maximum rating specified by Compaq.
■
Ensure that the manufacturer’s maximum recommended ambient
operating temperature of the optional equipment is not exceeded when
installed in the rack.
Airflow Requirements
The Compaq ProLiant 6400R server draws cool air in through the front door
and exhausts warm air out the rear door. Therefore, the front door of the rack
must be adequately ventilated to enable ambient room air to enter the cabinet,
and the rear door must be ventilated adequately to enable the warm air to
escape from the cabinet. Do not block the ventilation apertures.
CAUTION: If a third-party rack is used, observe the following minimum
requirements to ensure adequate airflow and prevent damage to the equipment:
■
Front: The rack door should have 120 square inches of holes evenly
distributed from top to bottom to permit adequate air flow.
■
Side: The clearance between the installed module and the side panels of
the rack should be a minimum of 2.75 inches.
■
Rear: The clearance between the back of the rack and the wall should be a
minimum of 30 inches, and the equipment should operate without a rear
door.
CAUTION: If all the vertical space in the rack is not filled by components, the
gaps left change the airflow through the rack and across the components. Cover
the gaps with blanking panels.

Each slide rail assembly consists of an outer bracket rail and an inner server
rail. The pieces can be separated. The bracket rails attach to the rack mounting
brackets, and the server rails attach to the sides of the server chassis.
Figure 2-3. Slide rail assembly (outer bracket rail and inner server rail)
IMPORTANT: To make the installation of the rack mounting bracket easier, attach the
bracket rail to the rack mounting bracket before attaching the mounting bracket assembly
to the rack. In this way, the joined rack mounting bracket and bracket rail can be fastened
to the rack as one assembly.
Attaching the Bracket Rail to the
Rack Mounting Bracket
NOTE: Read all six steps before you begin.
1. Unpack the hardware mounting kit. Lay the two-piece slide rail
assembly (outer bracket rail and inner server rail) and fasteners on a flat
surface with the mounting brackets and fasteners that came with the
rack.
2. Lay the bracket rail inside of the rack mounting bracket with the front of
both pieces oriented in the same direction. Align the front screw hole in
the rack mounting bracket and the bracket rail.
To identify the front of the rack mounting bracket and the bracket rail,
see that the front of the rack mounting bracket has alignment tabs on its
flange and the front of the bracket rail enables the inner slide to move
forward on ball bearings.

Attaching the Rack Mounting Bracket Assembly
to the Rack
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment,
ensure that the rack leveling feet are extended to the floor and support the full
weight of the rack. Each rack must be level and stable. Racks not coupled
together require the installation of stabilizers before you perform any work on
the rack. See the Rack Video Training CD for more information on leveling feet
and stabilizers.
Marking the Rack with the Template
The template provided with the server offers an easy, reliable way to properly
position the server in the rack. Use the tabs on the template to suspend it from
the lower hole of a two-hole set of perforations in the vertical side rails. Pencil
mark the attachment points for the rack mounting bracket assemblies, cage
nuts for the faceplate thumb screws and top of the server. Use the tick marks
on the rack side rails to ensure the level installation of the server. See the
illustrations and instructions printed on the template.
IMPORTANT: Determine the place for the server in the rack before installing the
mounting bracket assemblies. For proper placement of the server in the rack, refer to the
Rack Builder report you printed when you planned the configuration. Always mount the
heaviest item on the bottom of the rack, and work from the bottom up.
1. Starting at the bottom of the rack or at the top of a previously mounted
component, measure the screw hole locations for the mounting bracket
assemblies of the server. Pencil mark the locations on the outside of the
rack on both the front and the back.
IMPORTANT: The template is two sided (front and back) and printed with arrows that
show you where the screws are inserted, both for the mounting bracket assemblies and
for the thumb screws that secure the server's face plate to the front of the rack.
Align the template carefully with the holes on the rack to determine the exact placement
of the screws.
2. When you mark the position of the mounting bracket screws, also mark
the position in the front of the rack for the cage nuts. These are two slots
marked C on the template. The cage nuts will hold the thumbscrews
through the server faceplate.
3. Follow the alignment instructions on the template, and keep the sides of
the template squared with the sides of the rack. Tick marks on the rack
vertical rails help you maintain the proper alignment.

back rails of the rack. Open the rear door of the rack to access the back
rails.
5. On the back of the rack, also mark the rail to show the top of the
template. Marking helps you align the template for the next component.
Inserting Cage Nuts into the Rack Frame
After marking the positions for the fasteners on both the front and back of the
rack, use the fitting tool to insert cage nuts on the inside of the rails at the
marked locations. The cage nuts and fitting tool are included in the hardware
kit supplied with the rack.
1. Position the cage nut on the inside of the rail as shown in Figure 2-6.
2. Hook one of the lips of the cage nut through the square rail perforation.
3. Insert the tip of the fitting tool through the other side of the perforation,
and hook the opposite lip of the cage nut.

Removing the Memory Expansion Board
1. If the server is on, set the power switch in the standby position and
disconnect the power cords. See Chapter 2, “Rack-Mountable Server
Installation.”
WARNING: Before removing the top access panel, set the power switch to the
standby position and disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet.
IMPORTANT: The system power in the ProLiant 6400R server does not completely shut
off with the front panel Power On/Standby switch. The two positions of the switch function
as on and standby, rather than on and off. The standby position removes power from
most of the electronics and the drives. However, portions of the power supply and some
internal circuitry remain active.
Consequently, to remove all power from the system, disconnect the power cord from the
server. In systems with multiple power supplies, disconnect all the power cords to remove
power from the system.
NOTE: After the Power On/Standby switch is set to standby, the operating system may
take as long as 30 seconds to shut down the power.

Installing Additional DIMMs
You can expand the existing memory in your server by installing
industry-standard DIMMs into the memory expansion board. The following
requirements must be met when installing additional memory. See also
“Address Bit Permuting” later in this chapter.
■
Install EDO buffered, 60-ns or faster (50-ns recommended), 16-, 32-,
64-, 128- or 256-MB, 4-K or 8-K refreshed DIMMs installed in sets of
four (a bank)
■
To maintain 50-ns timing support, all four banks must contain only
50-ns DIMMs; When DIMMs of different speeds are mixed, the
memory speed is reduced to the slowest DIMM speed.
■
Expandable to 4 GB (16 × 256-MB DIMMs)
■
The memory architecture of the Compaq ProLiant 6400R server uses
four-way interleaving, which requires groups of four DIMMs of the
same size, type, and speed to be installed or removed at a time. (The
four groups on each memory expansion board are Banks 1 through 4.)
Although DIMMs within a bank must be the same size, type, and speed,
DIMMs of a different size can be used in the other banks.
CAUTION: Use only Compaq-approved DIMMs. Using DIMM modules from other
sources may adversely affect data integrity.
For an illustrated overview of the installation procedure, see the Hardware
Installation and Configuration poster included in the shipping box and on the
hood label under the top access panel.
1. Place the memory expansion board, with the components facing up, on a
flat surface.
CAUTION: Always support the memory expansion board or apply counter
pressure while inserting a DIMM. The ejectors prevent the memory expansion
board from lying completely flat. Inserting a DIMM without applying counter
pressure to the back of the expansion board behind the socket can flex the
memory expansion board cause damage.
2. Open the DIMM socket latches.
3. Align the key slots on the bottom edge of each DIMM with the tabs in
the DIMM socket.
4. Insert each DIMM directly into the socket until the module is properly
seated , and close the latches .

Address Bit Permuting
The ProLiant 6400R server offers enhanced memory performance memory
configurations. By following memory configuration rules, the system memory
access time is reduced automatically, and system performance is improved.
NOTE: All banks must contain four EDO DIMMs of the same size, type, and speed.
Address Bit Permuting (ABP) is an option that distributes memory addresses
across two or four banks of memory. Therefore, an ABP group may be two or
four banks in size. The following section contains memory configuration rules
that permit ABP.
Memory Configuration Rules for Address Bit
Permuting:
■
Two or four banks on a memory expansion board must be populated.
■
All banks within an ABP group (two banks for a two-bank group and
four banks for a four-bank group) must be of the same memory capacity.
■
The memory in the expansion board must be populated starting with
bank 1 and each populated bank must be adjacent.
For example, installing 4 × 256-MB DIMMs in bank 1 would achieve 1 GB of
total memory, but would not enable ABP. However, installing 16 × 64-MB
DIMMs, using all four banks, would enable ABP and enhance memory
performance.

Accessing PCI Hot Plug Expansion Slots
You can use either the PCI Hot Plug button on the server or your operating
system PCI Hot Plug utility to control the PCI Hot Plug slots.
■
The PCI Hot Plug button enables PCI Hot Plug access directly at each
PCI slot, providing PCI Hot Plug control directly at the server without
requiring the PCI Hot Plug utility software.
■
You can also use the utility software to replace a card in the hot-plug
slot or configure a board that you have already added to the system. The
PCI Hot Plug utility software allows you to enable or disable specific
slots to the system. Compaq, in partnership with Microsoft, Novell and
SCO, has developed PCI Hot Plug software support for each operating
system. For more information on the PCI Hot Plug software application,
see the PCI Hot Plug Important Facts in the online PCI Hot Plug
Administration Guide on the Documentation CD or at the Compaq
website:
www.compaq.com/support/servers
Also, see Chapter 7, “Server Configuration and Utilities.”
NOTE: OS/2, Solaris and Banyan do not support PCI Hot Plug.
Replacing PCI Expansion Boards
The I/O expansion slots are located on the system board directly beneath the
top access panel, and are accessed using the PCI Hot Plug access door. To
replace PCI expansion boards, use the following procedure:
WARNING: Hazardous energy levels are a risk of injury or damage to the
equipment. The hot-plug access door provides access to hazardous energy

Accessing Hot-Plug SCSI Hard Drives
IMPORTANT: Before adding or removing any hot-plug SCSI drives, be sure to set the
drive in the STANDBY mode, as directed by the operating system instructions.
Important Guidelines About Replacing Hot-Plug
SCSI Hard Drives
Use the following guidelines when replacing hot-plug hard drives:
■
Never remove a hot-plug drive if the LED is green. Replace a hot-plug
hard drive only when the drive LED is amber.
■
Never remove more than one drive at a time. When a drive is replaced,
the controller uses data from the other drives in the array to reconstruct
data on the replacement drive. If more than one drive is removed, a
complete data set is not available to reconstruct data on the replacement
drive.
■
Never remove a working drive when another drive has failed. Drives
marked as failed by the controller are indicated by the amber Drive
Failure LED on the drive tray. Permanent data loss occurs when a
working drive is removed during replacement of a failed drive.
■
Never remove a drive while another drive is being rebuilt. The online
LED on the drive flashes green during the rebuild process. A replaced
drive is restored from data stored on the other drives.
■
Never turn a ProLiant 6400R Storage System off while the server
controlling it is powered on. Doing so causes the server's Smart
controller to mark the drives as "failed." This action could result in
permanent data loss.
■
If an online spare drive is installed, wait for it to finish rebuilding before
replacing the failed drive. When a drive fails, the online spare becomes
active and begins being rebuilt as a replacement drive. After the online
spare has been completely rebuilt (the online LED is solid green),
replace the failed drive with a new drive. Do not replace the failed drive
with the online spare.

Integrated Management Log
The Compaq Integrated Management Log (IML) records system events and
stores them in an easily viewable form. The IML provides greater
serviceability to your Compaq server by recording hundreds of events. The
IML also marks each event with a time-stamp with one-minute granularity.
Events listed in the IML are categorized as one of four event severity levels:
■
Status/Informational – indicates that the message is informational only
■
Repaired – indicates that corrective action has been taken
■
Caution – indicates a non-fatal error condition
■
Critical – indicates a component failure
The IML requires Compaq operating system-dependent drivers for full
support. Refer to the Compaq Support Software CD for instructions on
installing the appropriate drivers.
Multiple Ways of Viewing the Log
You can view an event in the IML in three ways:

PCI Hot Plug Technology
This chapter includes a brief discussion of PCI Hot Plug technology. For more
information, see the online PCI Hot Plug Administration Guide and the PCI
Hot Plug animation on the Documentation CD.
The ProLiant 6400R server supports PCI Hot Plug. PCI Hot Plug and the
server operating system work together to allow the following hot-plug actions:
■
Hot replacement of adapters – Replace a failed adapter with an
identical adapter without powering down the server.
■
Hot addition of adapters – Install new PCI expansion boards in
previously empty slots without powering down the server.
■
Hot upgrade of adapters – Replace an adapter with a different adapter
without powering down the server.
PCI Hot Plug is backward compatible, though system components fit into one
of two categories: hot-plug aware or non-hot-plug aware. The following are
required in the server for complete PCI Hot Plug capability:
■
PCI Hot Plug system hardware (available in this server)
■
Operating system with PCI Hot Plug support (currently Windows NT,
NetWare, and SCO UNIX)
■
PCI Hot Plug device drivers (available from operating system vendors,
the Compaq SmartStart and Support Software CD, and some individual
hardware vendors).
IMPORTANT: If any of the three required components are not hot-plug aware, the system
is fully functional, though not PCI Hot Plug capable.

Compaq ProLiant 6400R Setup and Installation Guide
IMPORTANT: Before adding or removing any PCI Hot Plug devices, remove power to the
slot by using the PCI Hot Plug application. Failure to do so could result in critical errors.
See Table 5-1.
With PCI Hot Plug capabilities, you can remove and replace PCI adapters
without bringing the server down.
To install a SCSI controller board, plan the SCSI configuration before
installing the board. Consult the following sources of information when
planning the SCSI installation:
■
For installation information and controller configuration, see the
documentation that came with the SCSI drives
■
For information on compatibility of SCSI controllers with SCSI drives
in this server, see the Compaq website:
www.compaq.com
■
For information on SCSI cabling, see Chapter 6, “Cabling Guidelines”
■
For information on using the Compaq System Configuration Utility to
set up a SCSI drive array, see Chapter 7, “Server Configuration and
Utilities”
PCI Hot Plug System
Systems that support PCI Hot Plug require the proper system hardware,
operating system, and device drivers. An existing adapter board should be
hot-plug capable as long as it complies with the established PCI specification
and has hot-plug device driver support. If any of the three required
components are not hot-plug capable, the system is still fully functional,
though not hot-plug capable.
PCI Hot Plug Application
The PCI Hot Plug application is the control panel of the PCI Hot Plug
architecture. It enables control of the hot-plug slots while enabling
configuration of the hot-plug options. Through the PCI Hot Plug application,
you can indicate that you want to replace a board in the hot-pluggable slot or
configure a board already added to the system. The software also allows you to
enable or disable specific slots in the system. The software reports the status of
all boards in the system, especially those in a degraded state.

PCI Hot Plug Technology
PCI Hot Plug Feature
The PCI Hot Plug feature provides the ability to remove and replace, upgrade,
and add PCI expansion boards without powering down the server. Any PCI
board can be placed in a PCI Hot Plug slot. PCI Hot Plug device drivers and
OS support, however, are required to enable the PCI Hot Plug feature.
PCI Hot Plug Button
Pressing the PCI Hot Plug button allows access directly at each PCI slot,
providing PCI Hot Plug control directly at the server without requiring the PCI
Hot Plug utility software. The PCI Hot Plug button allows you to cancel an
action by pressing the button again within 5 seconds.
PCI Hot Plug LED Indicators
The PCI Hot Plug LEDs at each expansion slot provide a visual reference of
the status of each board slot. The LEDs are viewed from the rear of the server
or by opening the PCI Hot Plug access doors on the top panel. Use the
following figure and table to identify the appropriate slot condition and status
for each state of the two LEDs.

Cabling Guidelines
IMPORTANT: The system power in the ProLiant 6400R does not completely shut off with
the front panel Power On/Standby switch. The two positions of the switch function as On
and Standby, rather than On and Off. The Standby position removes power from most of
the electronics and the drives but portions of the power supply and some internal circuitry
remain active.
Consequently, to remove all power from the system, disconnect the power cord from the
server. In systems with multiple power supplies, you must disconnect all the power cords
to completely remove power from the system.
Securing the Power Cord
Plug in the power cord. If desired, tie wrap the AC power cord to the plastic
loop provided on the power supply. Leave an 8-inch service loop for the plug
to prevent the plug from accidentally being disengaged. The following figure
identifies the location for both power cords: the primary power supply and
the secondary power supply .

Server Configuration and Utilities
Compaq provides tools to assist you in the configuration and management of
your Compaq ProLiant 6400R server. This chapter discusses Compaq
SmartStart and the Compaq System Configuration Utility, which includes
Diagnostics and Utilities.
For more information, refer to the Documentation CD.
Compaq SmartStart
SmartStart is the intelligent way to configure the server and to load the system
software, thereby achieving a well-integrated server that ensures maximum
dependability and supportability.
NOTE: Until you run the System Configuration program, an information message
indicating that you are running with a default configuration will occur each time you boot
the system. See “Powering Up Your Server” in Chapter 2 for more details.
The first time the server is configured, the SmartStart and Support Software
CD automatically creates a system partition and installs the Compaq System
Configuration Utility, ROMPaq, and other Compaq utilities in that partition.
IMPORTANT: Do not confuse the Compaq system utilities partition with the partitions
created by your operating system.

Federal Communications Commission
Notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and
Regulations has established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide
an interference-free radio frequency spectrum. Many electronic devices,
including computers, generate RF energy incidental to their intended function
and are, therefore, covered by these rules. These rules place computers and
related peripheral devices into two classes, A and B, depending upon their
intended installation. Class A devices are those that may reasonably be
expected to be installed in a business or commercial environment. Class B
devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a
residential environment (i.e., personal computers). The FCC requires devices
in both classes to bear a label indicating the interference potential of the device
as well as additional operating instructions for the user.
The rating label on the device shows which class (A or B) the equipment falls
