v Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for your server, monitor, and any other devices that you will connect to the
server.
v Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
v You do not need to turn off the server to install or replace hot-swap or hot-plug
components, or hot-plug Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices.
v The orange color on components and labels identifies hot-swap or hot-plug
components. You can install or remove hot-swap and hot-plug components while
the server is running, provided that the server is configured to support this
capability. See the instructions in this chapter for more information about
removing and installing hot-swap and hot-plug components.
v For a list of supported options for your server, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/.
Note: Some preconfigured servers have a unique list of supported options. See the
software documentation that comes with those servers for more information.
System reliability considerations
To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that:
v The top cover is closed during normal operation.
v Each of the drive bays has either a drive or a filler panel installed.
v There is space around the server to allow the cooling system to work properly.
v Cables for optional adapters are routed according to the instructions that are
provided with the adapters.
v All microprocessors have the same cache size and type, and the same clock
speed.
v For proper cooling, do not leave the cover open for more than 15 minutes.
v A failed fan is replaced within 48 hours.
v Do not remove a defective power supply until a replacement is available.
v For redundant and hot-swappable operation, the power supplies are connected to

13
v Avoid loose-fitting clothing on your forearms. Button long-sleeved shirts before
working inside the server; do not wear cuff links while you are working inside the
server.
v Do not allow your necktie or scarf to hang inside the server.
v Remove jewelry, such as bracelets, rings, necklaces, and loose-fitting wrist
watches.
v Remove items from your shirt pocket (such as pens or pencils) that could fall into
the server as you lean over it.
v Avoid dropping any metallic objects, such as paper clips, hair pins, or screws,
into the server.
Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention: Static electricity can damage electronic devices and your system. To
avoid damage, keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective package until
you are ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following
precautions:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
v Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.
v While the device is still in its anti-static package, touch it to an unpainted metal
part of the system unit for at least 2 seconds. This drains static electricity from
the package and from your body.
v Remove the device from its package and install it directly into the system unit
without setting down the device. If it is necessary to set down the device, place it
in to its static-protective package. Do not place the device on your system unit
cover or on a metal surface.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather. Heating reduces
indoor humidity and increases static electricity.
v Wear a properly grounded wrist strap against your skin to help eliminate static
electricity from your body.
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 except for the service processor is
shut down; however, the server can respond to requests from the service processor,
such as a remote request to turn on the server. The power-on LED flashes to
indicate that the server is connected to ac power but is not turned on.
Turning on the server
Approximately 20 seconds after the server is connected to ac power, the
power-control button becomes active, and you can turn on the server and start the
operating system by pressing the power-control button. The server can also be
turned on in any of the following ways:
v If a power failure occurs while the server is turned on, the server will restart
automatically when power is restored.
14
xSeries 455: Option Installation Guide
v If ac power is present, the server can be turned on from the Remote Supervisor
Adapter user interface.
v The Wake on LAN® feature can turn on the server.
Notes:
1. The power supplies are hot-swappable and redundant only at 200-240 V ac.
2. Both power supplies must be connected to the power source for operation at
100-127 V ac.
3. During normal operation, both power supplies must be installed for proper
operation.
4. While the server is powering up, the power-on LED on the front of the server is

LED on the front of the server flashes.
5. When you press the power-control button on any server in a scalable partition,
all servers in the scalable partition will be turned on. If the servers do not turn
on when the power-control button is pressed, see the Hardware Maintenance
Manual and Troubleshooting Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Turning off the server
When you turn off the server and leave it connected to ac power, the server can
respond to requests from the service processor, such as a remote request to turn
on the server. To remove all power from the server, you must disconnect it from the
power source.
Some operating systems require an orderly shutdown before you turn off the server.
See your operating-system documentation for information about shutting down the
operating system.
Statement 5:
CAUTION:
The power control button on the device and the power switch on the power
supply do not turn off the electrical current supplied to the device. The device
also might have more than one power cord. To remove all electrical current
from the device, ensure that all power cords are disconnected from the power
source.

v You can install both PCI and PCI-X adapters on the same bus. However, if you
install a PCI adapter and a PCI-X adapter on the same bus, the PCI-X features
of the PCI-X adapter will be disabled, and the adapter will function as a PCI
adapter.
v You can install PCI or PCI-X adapters of speeds faster than what is labeled for a
particular PCI-X bus. For example, if you install two 133 MHz adapters into slots
that are labeled as 100 MHz slots, the adapters will operate at 100 MHz.
v If you install a 33 MHz and a 66 MHz adapter on the same bus, the bus speed
will match that of the slower adapter.
20
xSeries 455: Option Installation Guide
v If a single 133 MHz adapter is installed on PCI-X bus B (slots 3 and 4) and the
other slot on PCI-X bus B is empty, the adapter will operate at 133 MHz.
v Your server supports 3.3 V and universal adapters; it does not support 5.0 V
adapters.
v The system scans PCI-X slots to assign system resources. The system attempts
to start the first device found. The search order is: PCI-X slots 1, 2, 6, 5, 3, and
4. If an optional remote I/O enclosure is attached, the scan continues with PCI-X
slots 11, 12, 9, 10, 7, 8, 17, 18, 15, 16, 13, and 14.
Complete the following steps to install an adapter.
Attention: When you handle static-sensitive devices, take precautions to avoid
damage from static electricity. For details about handling these devices, see
“Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 14.
1. Read the safety information beginning on page v and “Installation guidelines” on
page 13.
2. Disable the PCI-X slot through your operating system before you insert or
remove a PCI or PCI-X adapter.

Installing the server in a rack
Detailed cabling instructions, including the use of the cable management arm
(which comes with the server) are in the Rack Installation Instructions that come
with the server.
Connecting the cables
The following illustration shows the locations of the input and output connectors on
your server.
Notes:
1. You must turn off the server before connecting or disconnecting cables from
your server.
2. See the documentation that comes with your external devices for additional
cabling instructions. It might be easier for you to route cables before you
connect the devices to the server.
3. Cable identifiers are printed on the cables that come with your server and
options. Use these identifiers to connect the cables to the correct connectors.
4. There are two optional IBM Eserver xSeries 455 SMP Expansion cable kits
available to connect the SMP Expansion Port connectors.
v 4-way to 8-way Scalability Kit (comes with two 2.5 m (8.2 feet) SMP
Expansion cables).
v 8-way to 16-way Supplemental Kit (comes with three 2.5 m (8.2 feet) SMP
Expansion cables and one 3.5 m (11.6 feet) SMP Expansion cable).
5. If your server comes with an operating system installed, see the documentation
that comes with your software for additional cabling instructions.
6. To effectively manage the cables on your server, keep groups of cables secured
together, and do not run cables across the back of the server. Use cable ties to
42
