Optimum Environment
Peak server performance depends in part on the environment you select for
installing your server or servers. Select a location that meets standard
environmental requirements for the following:
■
Space and airflow
■
Power
■
Electrical grounding
■
Temperature
Space and Airflow Requirements
To allow for servicing and adequate airflow, observe the following spatial
requirements when deciding where to install your Compaq, Telco, or
third-party rack:
■
Leave a minimum clearance of 63.5 cm (25 inches) in front of the rack.
■
Leave a minimum clearance of 76.2 cm (30 inches) in the back of the
rack.
■
Leave a minimum clearance of 121.9 cm (48 inches) from the back of
the rack to the rear of another rack or row of racks.
Compaq servers draw in cool air through the front door and expel warm air
through the rear door. Therefore, the front and rear rack doors must be
adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the cabinet, and the
rear door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape from
the cabinet.
IMPORTANT: Do not block the ventilation openings.

2-3
When there is any vertical space in the rack not filled by a server or rack
component, the gaps between the components cause changes in airflow
through the rack and across the servers. Cover all gaps with blanking panels to
maintain proper airflow.
Compaq 9000 Series racks provide proper server cooling from flow-through
perforations in the front and rear doors that provide 64 percent open area for
ventilation. Refer to the rack documentation provided with Compaq 7000
Series and third-party racks for additional guidelines on meeting airflow
requirements.
CAUTION: When using a Compaq 7000 Series rack, you must install the high
airflow rack door insert [P/N 327281-B21 (42U) and P/N 157847-B21 (22U)] to
provide proper front-to-back airflow and cooling to prevent damage to the
equipment.
CAUTION: If a third-party rack is used, observe the following additional
requirements to ensure adequate airflow and to prevent damage to the
equipment:
■
Front and rear doors: if your 42U server rack includes closing front and
rear doors, you must allow 5,350 sq cm (830 square inches) of holes
evenly distributed from top to bottom to permit adequate airflow
(equivalent to the required 64 percent open area for ventilation).
■
Side: The clearance between the installed rack component and the side
panels of the rack must be a minimum of 7 cm (2.75 inches).
CAUTION: Always use blanking panels to fill empty vertical spaces in the rack.
This arrangement ensures proper airflow. Using a rack without blanking panels
results in improper cooling that can lead to thermal damage.
To allow for servicing and adequate airflow for your tower server, observe the
following requirements:
■
Select a sturdy, level installation site that includes dedicated and
properly grounded circuits, air conditioning, and static electricity
protection.
■
Leave at least a 7.6-cm (3-inch) clearance space at the front and back of
the server for proper ventilation.
■
Provide a separate electrical circuit for the server.

Compaq ProLiant ML370 Generation 2 Server Setup and Installation Guide
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 that has jurisdiction over your facility’s
wiring and installation requirements.
CAUTION: Ensure that you place the equipment sufficiently close to the power
outlet. When you need to disconnect power completely from the server, ensure
that you unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
CAUTION: Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the
server from power fluctuations and temporary interruptions. This device protects
the hardware from damage caused by power surges and voltage spikes, and it
keeps the system in operation during a power failure.
Installation of this equipment must comply with local and regional electrical
regulations governing the installation of information technology equipment by
licensed electricians. This equipment is designed to operate in installations
covered by NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code), and
NFPA 75: Standard for the Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing
Equipment, 1992 Edition. For electrical power ratings on options, refer to the
product’s rating label or the user documentation supplied with that option.
When installing more than one server, you may need to use additional power
distribution devices to provide power to all devices safely.
■
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 in your facility.
■
If you use power strips, the overall system AC current load must not
exceed 80 percent of the electrical current marked on the power strip.
NOTE: Power strips are not recommended for optimal power distribution and safety.

Electrical Grounding Requirements
WARNING: This equipment is designed for connection to a grounded AC outlet.
The grounding type plug is an important safety feature. To reduce risk of
electrical shock or damage to your equipment, do not disable the grounding
feature on the plug.
The server must be grounded properly for proper operation and safety. In the
United States, you must install the equipment in accordance with
NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code), Article 250, as well as any
local and regional building codes. In Canada, the equipment must be installed
in accordance with Canadian Standards Association, CSA C22.1, Canadian
Electrical Code. In all other countries, the installation must follow any
regional or national electrical wiring codes, such as the International
Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Code 364, parts 1 through 7. Furthermore,
you must ensure that all power distribution devices used in the installation,
such as branch wiring and receptacles, are listed or certified grounding-type
devices.
Because of the high ground-leakage currents associated with multiple servers
connected to the same power source, Compaq recommends the use of a power
distribution unit (PDU) that is either permanently wired to the building branch
circuit or includes a nondetachable cord wired to an industrial-style plug.
NEMA locking-style plugs or those complying with IEC 60309 are considered
suitable for this purpose. Compaq does not recommend using common power
outlet strips for this equipment.
Temperature Requirements
To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or locate the
system in a well-ventilated, climate controlled environment. The maximum
recommended ambient operating temperature (TMRA) for most Compaq
server products is 35°C (95°F).
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing
third-party options:
■
Do not permit optional equipment to impede airflow around the servers or
to increase the internal rack temperature beyond the maximum allowable
limits.
■
Do not exceed the manufacturer’s TMRA.

Online Spare Memory Configurations
With online spare memory support, you can configure primary server memory
for up to 4 GB of ECC SDRAM and configure an additional 2 GB of memory
for online spare memory support. In the online spare memory configuration,
all six DIMM slots are populated with 1-GB 133-MHz ECC registered
SDRAM DIMMs.
In the online spare configuration, banks A and B provide standard memory
functions while bank C is configured for redundancy. If DIMMs in banks A or
B exceed the limit for the single-bit correctable errors threshold as defined for
your Pre-Failure Warranty, the system copies the memory contents of the
failing bank to bank C. The system then deactivates the failing bank and
automatically switches over to the redundant bank.
After installing DIMMs, use RBSU to configure the system for online spare
memory support. See “Configuring Online Spare Memory” in Chapter 9,
“Server Configuration and Utilities,” for additional information about enabling
and configuring online spare memory support.
DIMM Installation Guidelines
You must observe the following guidelines when installing additional
memory:
■
Always install memory in pairs of two identical DIMMs.
■
DIMMs installed in the ProLiant ML370 Generation 2 server must be
133-MHz registered SDRAM, 3.3-volts, 72-bits wide, and ECC.
■
All DIMMs installed must be the same speed. Do not install DIMM
modules supporting different speeds.
NOTE: The server ships with DIMMs installed in DIMM slots 1A and 4A.
■
Install DIMMs into both slots within a single bank. To ease successive
DIMM installation, upgrade memory by installing DIMM pairs into
banks in sequential bank order, starting with bank B.
CAUTION: Use only the Compaq DIMMs supported for your server. DIMMs from
other sources are known to adversely affect data integrity.

from the SmartStart CD or download the Scripting Toolkit from the Compaq
website:
www.compaq.com/support/files/server
Redundant ROM Support
Compaq ProLiant ML370 Generation 2 servers enable you to upgrade or
configure your ROM safely with redundant ROM support. The server has a
2-MB ROM that acts as two, separate 1-MB ROMs. In the standard
implementation, one side of the ROM contains the current ROM program
version, while the other side of the ROM contains the backup version.
Safety and Security Benefits
When you flash the system ROM, ROMPaq writes over the backup ROM and
saves the current ROM as a backup, enabling you to switch easily to the
existing ROM version if the new ROM becomes corrupted for any reason.
This feature protects your previous ROM version, even if you experience a
power failure while flashing the ROM.
Access to Redundant ROM Settings
Use ROMPaq utilities to create a backup ROM image before upgrading the
configuration or to restore saved ROM data.
1. Access RBSU by pressing the F9 key during power up when the prompt
displays in the lower right corner of the screen.
2. Select Advanced Options.
3. Select Redundant ROM.
4. Select one of the ROM banks as the system ROM.
5. Press the Enter key.
6. Press the Esc key to exit the current menu or press the F10 key to exit
RBSU.
7. Restart the server.

Compaq ProLiant ML370 Generation 2 Server Setup and Installation Guide
When the server boots, the system identifies whether the current ROM bank is
corrupt. If a corrupt ROM is detected, the system boots from the backup ROM
and alerts you through POST or IML that the ROM bank is corrupt.
If both the current and backup versions of the ROM are corrupt, the server
automatically enters the ROMPaq disaster recovery mode. To perform this
procedure, see the “ROMPaq Disaster Recovery” section in Appendix D,
“Troubleshooting.”
ROMPaq Utility
Flash ROM enables you to upgrade the firmware (BIOS) with system or
option ROMPaq utilities. To upgrade the BIOS, insert a ROMPaq diskette into
the diskette drive and boot the system.
The ROMPaq Utility checks the system and provides a choice, if more than
one exists, of available ROM revisions. By default, the oldest ROM version is
updated. This procedure is the same for both system and option ROMPaq
utilities.
If a power loss occurs during a firmware upgrade, redundant ROM support
enables data recovery.
Remote ROM Flash Utility
Smart Components for Remote ROM Flash enables Microsoft Windows
NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 operating system administrators to efficiently
upgrade and manage system and array controller ROMs. This tool includes the
following features:
■
Works offline and online
■
Integrates with other Compaq software maintenance, deployment, and
operating system tools
■
Automatically checks for hardware, firmware, and operating system
dependencies, and installs only the correct ROM upgrades required by
each target server

Grounding Methods
There are several methods 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 cord. To provide proper
grounding, 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
a Compaq authorized reseller install the part.

Compaq ProLiant ML370 Generation 2 Server Setup and Installation Guide
This appendix includes the following topics:
■
When the Server Does Not Start
You are provided with initial instructions on what to try and where to go
for help for the most common problems encountered during initial
POST. A successful startup requires the server to complete this test each
time you power up, before the server can load the operating system and
start running software applications.
■
Diagnosis Steps
If the server does not power up after you have performed initial
troubleshooting procedures, use the tables in this section to identify
possible reasons for the problem, possible solutions, and references to
other sources of information.
■
Problems After Initial Boot
Once your server has passed the POST, you may still encounter errors,
such as an inability to load your operating system. You are provided
with instructions on what to try and where to go for help when you
encounter errors after the server completes the POST.
■
ROMPaq Disaster Recovery
During troubleshooting, it may become apparent that your system ROM
is corrupted. Because the server has redundant ROM capability, you can
use the backup ROM. If both ROMs are corrupted, you must perform
the ROMPaq disaster recovery procedure.
■
Information Resources
This section provides a list of reference information available for your
server.
For troubleshooting information beyond the scope of this guide, both general
and specific to ProLiant ML370 Generation 2 servers, see the reference table
at the end of this appendix.

System LEDs and Internal Health LED Status
Combinations
When the internal health LED on the front panel illuminates either amber or
red, the server is experiencing a health event. The combinations of illuminated
system LEDs and the internal health LED in the following table indicate
system status.
NOTE: The system management driver must be installed in order for the internal health
LED to provide pre-failure and system conditions.
The internal health LEDs on the front panel indicate the current hardware
status and are used to assist in initial troubleshooting. Note that in some
situations, Compaq Insight Manager XE reports server status differently than
the health LEDs because it tracks more system attributes.

The system identification switch (SW2) is a three-position switch that
identifies the operational configuration of the server. This switch is set to the
correct configuration for your server by default. The following table shows the
switch settings and positions.

Non-Maskable Interrupt Switch
Crash dump analysis is an essential part of eliminating reliability problems
such as hangs or crashes in operating systems, device drivers, and applications.
Many crashes freeze a system requiring you to do a hard reset. Resetting the
system erases any information that supports root cause analysis.
Systems running a Microsoft Windows NT operating system experience a blue
screen trap when the operating system crashes. When this happens, Microsoft
recommends that system administrators perform a non-maskable interrupt
(NMI) event by pressing a dump switch. The NMI event allows a hung system
to once again become responsive.
The NMI switch, or SW4, is used ONLY in the event of a service emergency
that requires a complete data dump in preparation for recovering the system
from a blue screen or other catastrophic event.

System Configuration Settings
It may be necessary at some time to clear and reset system configuration
settings. When the system maintenance switch position 6 is set to the on
position, the system is prepared to erase all system configuration settings from
both CMOS and NVRAM. For additional information about locating the
switch and switch settings, see “System Maintenance Switch” in this appendix.
The default setting for all positions is off.
IMPORTANT: Clearing CMOS and/or (NVRAM) deletes your configuration information. See
Chapter 9, “ Server Configuration and Utilities,” for complete instructions on configuring
your server.
To erase all system configuration settings:
1. Power down the server.
2. Remove the access panel.
3. Set the position 6 lever to the on position.
4. Power up the server.
All configuration settings are now erased and all system operations halt.
5. Power down the server.
6. Reset the position 6 lever to the default off position.
7. Power up the server.
8. Press the F9 key to run RBSU and reset all system configuration
settings.
NOTE: For instructions on using RBSU to reset system configuration settings, see
Chapter 9, “ Server Configuration and Utilities.”

ROMPaq Disaster Recovery Mode
A corrupted system ROM requires that you recreate the ROM BIOS by a
process called flashing the ROM. This operation can be accomplished only
when the system is in disaster recovery (emergency repair boot) mode. When
both system ROMs are corrupt, the system defaults into disaster recovery
mode automatically. Proceed by following the instructions displayed on your
monitor or event log.
IMPORTANT: Prior to performing this operation, refer to the Compaq Servers
Troubleshooting Guide for complete instructions on disaster recovery.

(P/N 179322-xx1).
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:,
do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an
important safety feature.
WARNING: Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that
is easily accessible at all times.
WARNING: To remove all power from the server, unplug the power cord from
either the electrical outlet or the server or other product. If there is more than
one power cord, all cords must be unplugged before all power is removed from
the server.
