Description
The power-on indicator lights when the
sled power is on. The power-on indicator
lights amber when the system critical
event occurs.
NOTE: The power-on indicator lights amber
according to critical system error log (SEL)
assertion. If the SEL is full or a deassertion
event occurred while sensor monitoring is
paused (e.g. fan monitoring is paused during
system power off), the power-on indicator
turns amber. To turn off an amber LED and
reset the power-on indicator to normal
condition (solid green), either perform a
BMC cold reset or reseat the sled in the
server enclosure.
The power button turns the compute
sled on.
NOTES:
• When powering on the sled, the video
monitor can take from several seconds to
over 2 minutes to display an image,
depending on the amount of memory
installed in the system.
• On ACPI-compliant operating systems,
turning off the sled using the power
button causes the sled to perform a
graceful shutdown before power to the
sled is turned off.
• To force an ungraceful shutdown, press
and hold the power button for five
seconds.

Collecting System Event Log for Investigation
Whenever possible, the system BIOS will output the current boot progress
codes on the video screen. Progress codes are 32-bit quantities plus optional
data. The 32-bit numbers include class, subclass, and operation information.
The class and subclass fields point to the type of hardware that is being
initialized. The operation field represents the specific initialization activity.
Based on the data bit availability to display progress codes, a progress code
can be customized to fit the data width. The higher the data bit, the higher
the granularity of information that can be sent on the progress port. The
progress codes may be reported by the system BIOS or option ROMs.
The Response section in the following table may be divided into 3 types:
•
Warning or Not an error – The message is displayed on the screen. An error
record is logged to the SEL. The system will continue booting with a
degraded state. The user may want to replace the erroneous unit.
•
Pause – The message is displayed on the screen, an error is logged to the
SEL, and user input is required to continue. The user can take immediate
corrective action or choose to continue booting.
•
Halt – The message is displayed on the screen, an error is logged to the
SEL, and the system cannot boot unless the error is resolved. The user
needs to replace the faulty part and restart the system.

About Your System
Using the System Setup Program
2
The System Setup program is the BIOS program that enables you to manage
your system hardware and specify BIOS-level options. From the System Setup
program, you can:
•
Change the NVRAM settings after you add or remove hardware
•
View the system hardware configuration
•
Enable or disable integrated devices
•
Set performance and power management thresholds
•
Manage system security
System Setup Menu
The system employs the latest Insyde® BIOS, which is stored in Flash
memory. The Flash memory supports the Plug and Play specification, and
contains a System Setup program, the Power On Self Test (POST) routine,
and the PCI auto-configuration utility.
This system supports system BIOS shadowing which enables the BIOS to
execute from 64-bit onboard write-protected DRAM.
You can configure items such as:
•
Hard-drives, diskette drives, and peripherals
•
Password protection
•
Power management features
The Setup utility should be executed under the following conditions:
•
When changing the system configuration
•
When a configuration error is detected by the system and you are
prompted to make changes to the Setup utility
•
When redefining the communication ports to prevent any conflicts

Console Redirection
The console redirection allows a remote user to diagnose and fix problems on
a server, which has not successfully booted the operating system (OS). The
centerpiece of the console redirection is the BIOS Console. The BIOS
Console is a Flash ROM-resident utility that redirects input and output over
a serial or modem connection.
The BIOS supports console redirection to a serial port. If serial port based
headless server support is provided by the system, the system must provide
support for redirection of all BIOS driven console I/O to the serial port. The
driver for the serial console must be capable of supporting the functionality
documented in the ANSI Terminal Definition.
The console redirection behavior shows a change of string displays that
reduce the data transfer rate in the serial port and cause the absence or an
incomplete POST screen. If you see an abnormal POST screen after you
connect to the console, it is recommended to press <Ctrl><R> to reflash
the screen.
Enabling and Configuring Console Redirection
Console redirection is configured through the System Setup program. There
are three options available to establish console redirection on the system.
•
External serial port
•
Internal serial connector as Serial Over LAN (SOL)
•
BMC SOL

Safety Instructions
WARNING: Working on systems that are still connected to a power supply can be
extremely dangerous.
CAUTION: System components and electronic circuit boards can be damaged by
discharge of static electricity.
CAUTION: Many repairs may only be done by a certified service technician. You
should only perform troubleshooting and simple repairs as authorized in your
product documentation, or as directed by the online or telephone service and
support team. Damage due to servicing that is not authorized by Dell is not covered
by your warranty. Read and follow the safety instructions that came with the
product.
To avoid injury to yourself or damage to your system, follow these guidelines:
•
Always disconnect the system from the power outlet whenever you are
working inside the system.
•
If possible, wear a grounded wrist strap when you are working inside the
system. Alternatively, discharge any static electricity by touching the bare
metal chassis of the system case, or the bare metal body of any other
grounded appliance.
•
Hold electronic circuit boards by the edges only. Do not touch the
components on the board unless it is necessary to do so. Do not flex or
stress the circuit board.
•
Leave all components inside the static-proof packaging until you are ready
to use the component for the installation.
Installing System Components
129
•
Some cables have a connector with locking tabs; if you are disconnecting
this type of cable, press in on the locking tabs before you disconnect the
cable. As you pull connectors apart, keep them evenly aligned to avoid
bending any connector pins. Also, before you connect a cable, ensure that
both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.

Removing a Sled
CAUTION: Many repairs may only be done by a certified service technician. You
should only perform troubleshooting and simple repairs as authorized in your
product documentation, or as directed by the online or telephone service and
support team. Damage due to servicing that is not authorized is not covered by
warranty. Read and follow the safety instructions that came with the product.
CAUTION: To ensure proper airflow in the system, if a module is removed it
should be immediately replaced with another sled or sled blank.
CAUTION: Operating the system for extended periods of time without a sled blank
installed can cause the PowerEdge C8000 server enclosure to overheat.
See "Installing a Single-Wide Sled Blank" on page 135.
1 Power down the sled using OS commands or the Baseboard Management
Controller, and ensure that the sled's power is off.
When a sled is powered off, its front-panel power indicator is off.
2 Pull up on the compute sled release latch at the bottom of the sled to
disengage the sled from the server enclosure. See Figure 3-4.
3 Using the handle, slide the sled out of the enclosure. See Figure 3-4.

System Memory
Each system board has 16 memory module sockets for the installation of
DDR3 unbuffered ECC DIMMs (ECC UDIMMs), registered DIMMs
(RDIMMs), and load reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) to support processor 1
and processor 2. See "System Board Connectors" on page 219 for the location
of the memory modules.
Memory Module Installation Guidelines
Follow these guidelines when installing memory modules on the sled system
board.
150
•
Use only Dell approved R/LR/UDIMM DDR3 memory modules in 2 GB,
4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB capacities. DIMM types (R/LR/UDIMM)
cannot be mixed.
•
DIMM slots are numbered 1 to 8 and designated by two channels. The
number of channels used and the allowable configuration depend on the
memory mode selected in the System Setup program.
•
DIMMs must be installed in each channel starting with the DIMM socket
farthest from the processor, per Table 3-1.
•
Memory optimized mode is supported on the sled system board.
•
Memory sparing and memory mirroring are supported on the sled system
board. Memory sparing requires that all the DIMMs are identically
populated in all 4 channels. One channel will be the spare and not
accessible as system memory until brought online to replace a failing
channel. For memory mirroring, two channels operate as mirrors for each
other, identical DIMMs must be installed in the same slots across both
channels.
Installing System Components
Supported DIMM Configuration
For the sequence of the 16 DIMM sockets, see Figure 3-15. When you insert
the DIMM(s), always start with DIMM_A1. For single processor
configurations, the optimized memory module installation sequence is
A1/A2/A3/A4/A5/A6/A7/A8. See Table 3-1 for dual processor configurations.

NVRAM may lose its system configuration information. This situation is caused by a
defective battery.
1 Re-enter the time and date through the System Setup program. See
"System Setup Options at Boot" on page 46.
2 Turn off the sled and remove it from the enclosure for at least one hour.
3 Reconnect the sled to the server enclosure and turn on the sled.
4 Enter the System Setup program.
If the date and time are not correct in the System Setup program, replace
the battery. See "Removing the System Battery" on page 187.

Troubleshooting
CAUTION: You should only perform troubleshooting and simple repairs as
authorized in your product documentation, or as directed by the online or
telephone service and support team. Damage due to servicing that is not
authorized by Dell is not covered by your warranty. Read and follow the safety
instructions that came with the product.
If the problem is not resolved by replacing the battery, see "Getting Help"
on page 229.
NOTE: Some software may cause the system time to speed up or slow down. If the
system seems to operate normally except for the time kept in the System Setup
program, the problem may be caused by software rather than by a defective
battery.
IRQ Assignment Conflicts
Most PCI devices can share an IRQ with another device, but they cannot use
an IRQ simultaneously. To avoid this type of conflict, see the documentation
for each PCI device for specific IRQ requirements.
