What your server offers
Your server takes advantage of advancements in symmetric multiprocessing (SMP),
data storage, disk-array technologies, and memory management. Your server
includes:
v IBM X-Architecture design
IBM X-Architecture technology combines proven, innovative IBM designs to make
your Intel-processor-based server powerful, scalable, and reliable. X-Architecture
design includes Chipkill™ memory, hot-swappable hard disk drives, and
Predictive Failure Analysis® capability.
v Impressive performance using SMP
Your server supports up to two Intel Xeon microprocessors. It comes with at least
one microprocessor installed; if it comes with only one microprocessor, you can
install an additional microprocessor to enhance performance and provide SMP
capability.
v Large data-storage and hot-swap capabilities
Some server models support up to six 25.4-mm (1-inch) slim-high, 3.5-inch
hot-swap hard disk drives in the hot-swap bays. With the hot-swap feature, you
can add, remove, or replace hard disk drives without turning off the server.
v Redundant power capabilities
Some models of the server come with two 350-watt or 514-watt hot-swap power
supplies, which provide redundant power for many server configurations. If the
average load on your server is less than 350 watts (models with 350-watt power
supplies) or 514-watt (models with 514-watt power supplies) and a problem
occurs with one of the power supplies, the other power supply can handle the
load.
v Large system memory
Your server supports up to 8 GB of system memory. The memory controller
provides error correcting code (ECC) support for up to four industry-standard,
133 MHz, 2.5 V, 184-pin, double-data-rate (DDR), PC2100 registered,
synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) dual inline memory
modules (DIMMs). The memory controller provides Chipkill memory protection if
all DIMMs are type x4 and are 256 MB or larger. Chipkill memory protection is a
technology that protects the server from a single chip failure on a DIMM.
v System-management capabilities
Your server supports an optional IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter. By using the
optional IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter with the system-management software
that comes with your server, you can manage the functions of the server locally
and remotely giving you a World Wide Web interface to the system-management
functions.
See the documentation that comes with your system-management software for
more information. To order an optional Remote Supervisor Adapter, contact your
IBM marketing representative or authorized reseller.
v Integrated network environment support
Your server comes with an integrated Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet controller on
the system board. This Ethernet controller has an interface for connecting to a
10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1-Gbps network. The server automatically selects
between 10BASE-T and 100/1000BASE-TX environments. The controller
provides full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission
and reception of data on an Ethernet local area network (LAN). This controller
supports Wake on LAN® technology.

IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: User’s Guide
Hot-swap hard disk drive status LED
On some server models, each hot-swap hard disk drive has a status LED. If
the status LED for a drive is lit continuously, that individual drive is faulty.
The interpretation of a flashing status LED depends on the SCSI controller
connected to the hot-swap drive, as follows:
v When the drive is connected to the integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities, a flashing status LED indicates that the drive is a secondary
drive in a mirrored pair and the drive is being synchronized.
v When the drive is connected to an optional ServeRAID controller, a
slowly flashing (one flash per second) status LED indicates that the drive
is being rebuilt. When the LED is flashing rapidly (three flashes per
second), it indicates that the controller is identifying the drive.
Power-control button
Press this button to turn the server on and off manually.
Power-on LED
When this LED is lit and not flashing, it indicates that the server is turned
on. When this LED is flashing, it indicates that the server is off and still

System-error LED
When this LED is lit, it indicates that a system error has occurred. An LED
on the system board might also be lit to help isolate the error. Detailed
troubleshooting information is in the Hardware Maintenance Manual and
Troubleshooting Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Server power features
When the server is connected to an ac power source but is not turned on, the
operating system does not run, and all core logic is shut down; however, the server
can respond to remote requests to turn on the server. The power-on LED flashes to
indicate that the server is connected to an ac power source but is not turned on
(standby mode).

Setup and configuration overview
When you use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, you do not need setup
diskettes. You can use the CD to configure any supported IBM server model. The
ServerGuide program checks your system BIOS, service processors, and other
system hardware to determine if system updates are available. The setup program
provides a list of tasks that are required to set up your server model. On SCSI
RAID servers, you can run the SCSI RAID configuration program to create logical
drives.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide program.
When you start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, the program performs
the following tasks:
v The ServerGuide program prompts you for your language, country, and keyboard
layout. (This information is stored and later passed to the operating system
installation program.)
v The ServerGuide program displays choices for running the configuration
programs. For example:
– The Express Configuration method runs the required programs for your
server, based on the hardware that is detected.
– The Custom Configuration method displays all programs that are available for
your server, and you decide which programs to run.
– The Replicated Configuration method provides the option of duplicating your
setup selections to other servers that are the same model.
v If you select the Custom Configuration method, the following features are
optional. If you select the Express Configuration method, some or all of these
features are run, depending on the hardware that is detected:
– The Set Date and Time feature is provided so that you do not have to use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to access these settings.
16
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: User’s Guide
– The Clear Hard Disks feature is provided so you can delete all partitions on all
hard disk drives. If the server has a SCSI RAID adapter installed, you can
select to restore the configuration on the SCSI RAID adapter to the factory
default settings.
– The ServerGuide program checks the server BIOS code and microcode
(firmware) levels for supported options and then checks the CD for a newer
level. The CD content might be newer than the BIOS code and firmware level.
The ServerGuide program can perform a flash update of the BIOS code and
supported microcode (firmware) options without using diskettes.
– The SCSI RAID configuration program starts, leading you through the entire
configuration process.
– The Performance Optimizer program easily tunes your server for your
environment.
– The ServerGuide program creates a System Partition on the default drive.
v The ServerGuide program displays a confirmation summary, so that you will
know when you have completed all the required tasks. Then, you are ready to
install your operating system.
Notes:
1. Plug and Play adapters are configured automatically. Non-Plug and Play
adapters or non-IBM adapters might require switch settings, additional device
drivers, and installation after the operating system is installed. See the
documentation that comes with the adapter.
2. Diagnostics for your server come in BIOS code or on a separate diagnostics
CD.
System Partition
The ServerGuide program creates a 50 MB System Partition on the default drive.
The System Partition contains server-specific utility programs such as service
processor disk operating system (DOS) utilities, system diagnostics, flash BIOS
updates, and other programs. Programs in the System Partition vary by server
model, and not all server models run utility programs from the System Partition. To
determine which ones do, start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD and view
the online overview.
After setup is complete, you can access programs in the System Partition by
restarting the server and pressing Alt+F1 when the prompt is displayed. The
System Partition menu displays the programs that are available on your server
model.
Typical operating system installation
You can use the ServerGuide program to shorten your installation time. The
ServerGuide program provides the device drivers that are required for your
hardware and for the operating system that you are installing. This section
describes a typical ServerGuide operating system installation.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide program.
1. After you have completed the setup process, the operating system installation
program starts. (You will need your operating system CD to complete the
installation.)
2. The ServerGuide program stores information about the server model, service
processor, hard disk drive controllers, and network adapters. Then, the program

checks the CD for newer device drivers. This information is stored and then
passed to the operating system installation program.
With some operating system installations, you can create an operating system
replication diskette for setting up additional servers. This diskette contains the
Internet protocol (IP) address, server name, and other selections.
The ServerGuide program presents operating system partition options that are
based on your operating system selection and the installed hard disk drives.
If you are installing the operating system from diskette, the ServerGuide
program lists the diskettes that you must create and the optional diskettes that
you might want to create. The diskettes that you can create are the
device-driver diskettes for the installed adapters or controllers.
The ServerGuide program prompts you to insert your operating system CD and
restart the server. At this point, the installation program for the operating system
takes control to complete the installation.
Setting up or updating multiple servers
You can use the ServerGuide program to create diskettes that help you set up or
update multiple servers. You can modify information on the diskettes as you use
them to set up or update other servers.
Note: Availability and function can vary by server model and by the hardware that
is installed.
You can create a setup-replication diskette, which contains your hardware
configuration selections. Use this diskette to replicate selections to other servers
that are of the same model.
You can create a operating system replication diskette, which contains information
that you need to complete multiple installations. Not all operating systems support
operating system replication diskettes.
Installing your operating system without ServerGuide
If you have already configured the server hardware and you decide not to use the
ServerGuide program to install your operating system, complete the following steps
to download the latest operating system installation instructions from the IBM
Support Web page:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.

Using the RAID Configuration programs
Use the following programs to configure and manage RAID arrays. Be sure to use
these programs as described in this book:
v LSI Logic Configuration Utility program
Use the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program to:
– Perform a low-level format on a SCSI hard disk drive
– View or change SCSI IDs for attached devices
– Set SCSI protocol parameters on SCSI hard disk drives
18
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: User’s Guide
v ServeRAID Manager
Use the ServeRAID Manager program to:
– Configure a redundant array of independent disks (RAID)
– View your RAID configuration and associated devices
– Monitor operation of your RAID controllers
The following notes provide information that you must consider when using the LSI
Logic Configuration Utility and the ServeRAID Manager programs to configure and
manage your arrays:
v The integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities in your server supports only
RAID level 1 with a hot-spare drive installed. Installing an optional ServeRAID
controller provides additional RAID levels.
v If your server has a ServeRAID controller installked, you can use ServeRAID
Manager to configure the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities for
other supported RAID levels.
v You cannot use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD to configure the
integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities.
v When you create a RAID 1 mirrored pair, all drives must be on the same
channel.
Hard disk capacities influence the way you create arrays. Drives in the array can
be of different capacities, but the RAID controller treats them as if they all have
the capacity of the smallest disk drive.
v To help ensure signal quality, do not mix drives with different speeds and data
rates.
v
v You can set up a mirror after the operating system is installed on the primary
drive only if you are using the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities.
You must ensure that the primary drive has the lower SCSI ID (for example 0).
Important: If you use the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities to
configure a RAID level 1 (mirrored) array after you install the operating system,
you will lose access to any data or applications that were previously stored on
the secondary physical drive of the mirrored pair.
v To update the firmware and BIOS for an optional ServeRAID controller, you must
use the IBM ServeRAID Support CD that comes with ServeRAID option.
v If you install a different type of RAID controller in your server, use the
configuration method supplied with the RAID controller to view or change SCSI
settings for attached devices.
Using the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program
The following sections provide the instructions for starting and running the LSI Logic
Configuration Utility program and performing selected functions.
Starting the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program
Complete the following steps to start the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program:
1. Turn on the server.
2. When the prompt <<< Press <CTRL><C> to start LSI Logic Configuration
Utility >>> appears, press Ctrl+C. If you have set an administrator password
you are prompted to type the password.
3. Use the arrow keys to select a controller (channel) from the list of adapters;
then, press Enter.
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
19
4. Follow the instructions on the screen to change the settings of the selected
items; then, press Enter. The Device Properties and Mirroring Properties
choices produce additional screens of parameters to review or change.
Formatting a SCSI hard disk drive
Low-level formatting removes all data from the hard disk. If there is data you want
to save, back up the hard disk before performing this procedure. Complete the
following steps to format a drive.
Note: Before you format a SCSI hard disk, make sure that it is not part of a
mirrored pair. From the list of adapters, select the controller (channel) for the drive
to format. Select Mirroring Properties and make sure the mirroring value for the
drive is set to None.
1. From the list of adapters, select the controller (channel) for the drive to format.
2. Select Device Properties.
3. Use the arrow keys (↑ or ↓) to highlight the drive to format.
4. Use the arrow keys (← or →) or the End key to scroll to the right.
5. Select Format; then, press Enter to begin the low-level formatting operation.
In addition, an LSI Command-line configuration program (CFG1030) is available at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
Using ServeRAID Manager
You can run ServeRAID Manager in startable-CD mode from the IBM ServeRAID
Support CD or as an installed program. For information about installing ServeRAID
Manager, see the documentation on the CD.
See the ServeRAID™ documentation on the IBM ServeRAID Support CD for
additional information about RAID technology and instructions for using ServeRAID
Manager. The Installation Guide for your server also contains instructions for using
ServeRAID Manager to configure your integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities.
Before you install your operating system, you must configure the controller that is
attached to the hard disk drives. Use the configuration program on the IBM
ServeRAID Support CD to configure the integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities or to configure an optional IBM ServeRAID controller.
Notes:
1. You cannot use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD to configure the
optional controllers.
2. To update the firmware and BIOS code for an optional ServeRAID controller,
you must use the IBM ServeRAID Support CD that comes with the ServeRAID
option.
Configuring the Gigabit Ethernet controller
The Ethernet controller is integrated on the system board. It provides an interface
for connecting to a 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps network and provides full
duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of
data on the network. If the Ethernet port in the server supports auto-negotiation, the
controller detects the data-transfer rate of the network (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or
1000BASE-T) and automatically operates at that rate, in full-duplex or half-duplex
mode, as appropriate. The Ethernet controller supports optional modes, such as
20
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: User’s Guide
teaming, priority packets, load balancing, fault tolerance, and virtual LANs, which
provide better performance, security, and throughput. These modes apply to the
integrated Ethernet controller and to controllers on supported Ethernet adapters.
You do not need to set any jumpers or configure the controller. However, you must
install a device driver to enable the operating system to address the controller. The
device drivers are available on the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Software
CD. For the latest device drivers and information about configuring your Ethernet
controller, go to the IBM Support Web site at http://www.ibm.com/pc/support.

Appendix B. IBM Statement of Limited Warranty Z125-4753-07
11/2002
Part 1 - General Terms
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms, Part 2 Country-unique Terms, and Part 3 - Warranty Information. The terms of Part 2
replace or modify those of Part 1. The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement
of Limited Warranty apply only to Machines you purchase for your use, and not for
resale. The term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features, conversions,
upgrades, elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. The term
“Machine” does not include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the
Machine, installed subsequently or otherwise. Nothing in this Statement of
Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be
waived or limited by contract.
What this Warranty Covers
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and
workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications
(“Specifications”) which are available on request. The warranty period for the
Machine starts on the original Date of Installation and is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information. The date on your invoice or sales receipt is the Date of
Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise. Many features,
conversions, or upgrades involve the removal of parts and their return to IBM. A
part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of the
removed part. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, these warranties apply only in the
country or region in which you purchased the Machine.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES
APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO
THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
What this Warranty Does not Cover
This warranty does not cover the following:
v any software programs, whether pre-loaded or shipped with the Machine, or

© Copyright IBM Corp. 2003
25
The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of identification labels on the
Machine or its parts.
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
Any technical or other support provided for a Machine under warranty, such as
assistance via telephone with “how-to” questions and those regarding Machine
set-up and installation, is provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, contact
IBM or your reseller to obtain warranty service. If you do not register the Machine
with IBM, you may be required to present proof of purchase as evidence of your
entitlement to warranty service.
What IBM Will Do to Correct Problems
When you call for service, you must follow the problem determination and resolution
procedures that IBM specifies. A technician will attempt to make an initial diagnosis
of your problem and help you resolve it over the telephone.
The type of warranty service applicable to your Machine is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information.
You are responsible for downloading and installing designated Machine Code
(microcode, basic input/output system code (called “BIOS”), utility programs, device
drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM Machine) and other software updates
from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the
instructions that IBM provides.
If your problem can be resolved with a Customer Replaceable Unit (“CRU”) (e.g.,
keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, hard disk drive and other easily replaceable
parts), IBM will ship these parts to you for replacement by you.
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period and your
problem cannot be resolved over the telephone, through your application of
Machine Code or software updates, or with a CRU, IBM or your reseller, if approved
by IBM to provide warranty service, will either, at its discretion, 1) repair it to make it
function as warranted, or 2) replace it with one that is at least functionally
equivalent. If IBM is unable to do either, you may return the Machine to your place
of purchase and your money will be refunded.
IBM or your reseller will also manage and install selected engineering changes that
apply to the Machine.
Exchange of a Machine or Part
When the warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item
IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes
yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The
replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order and at least
functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty
service status of the replaced item.
26
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: User’s Guide
