33614LX iSCSI Upgrade Option
Chapter 2. Installing, cabling, and configuring the iSCSI
adapter
This chapter provides information about installing the iSCSI adapter.
Make sure that you have the following parts and tools:
v The iSCSI adapter
v Two SCSI cables (provided with the upgrade option)
v SCSI terminator (provided with the upgrade option)
v Short Ethernet cable (provided with the upgrade option)
v The documentation for the host server
v Phillips and flat-blade screwdrivers
Installation guidelines
Before you install or replace the iSCSI adapter, read the following information:
v Read the safety information that begins on page v and “Handling static-sensitive
devices.” This information will help you work safely.
v Observe good housekeeping in the area where you are working. Place removed
covers and other parts in a safe place.
v Do not attempt to lift an object that you think is too heavy for you. If you have to
lift a heavy object, observe the following precautions:
– Make sure that you can stand safely without slipping.
– Distribute the weight of the object equally between your feet.
– Use a slow lifting force. Never move suddenly or twist when you lift a heavy
object.
– To avoid straining the muscles in your back, lift by standing or by pushing up
with your leg muscles.
v Make sure that you have an adequate number of correctly grounded electrical
outlets for the server and all attached devices.
v Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention: Static electricity can damage electronic devices. To avoid damage,
keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective packages until you are ready
to install them.
To reduce the possibility of damage from electrostatic discharge, observe the
following precautions:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v The use of a grounding system is recommended. For example, wear an
electrostatic-discharge wrist strap, if one is available.
v Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
v Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2006

v While the device is still in its static-protective package, touch it to an unpainted
metal surface 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 immediately without setting
down the device. If it is necessary to set down the device, put it back into its
static-protective package. Do not place the device on a metal surface.
v Take additional care when you handle devices during cold weather. Heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.
Returning a device or component
If you are instructed to return a device or component, follow all packaging
instructions, and use any packaging materials for shipping that are supplied to you.

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 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 contact IBM for service, you must follow the problem determination and
resolution procedures that IBM specifies. An initial diagnosis of your problem can be
made either by a technician over the telephone or electronically by access to an
IBM website.
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), IBM will ship the CRU to you
for you to install.
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period and your
problem cannot be resolved over the telephone or electronically, 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.

33614LX iSCSI Upgrade Option
Your Additional Responsibilities
Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all
features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service.
You also agree to:
1. ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that
prevent its exchange;
2. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
3. where applicable, before service is provided:
a. follow the service request procedures that IBM or your reseller provides;
b. backup or secure all programs, data, and funds contained in the Machine;
c. provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit IBM to fulfill its obligations; and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in the Machine’s location.
4. (a) ensure all information about identified or identifiable individuals (Personal
Data) is deleted from the Machine (to the extent technically possible), (b) allow
IBM, your reseller or an IBM supplier to process on your behalf any remaining
Personal Data as IBM or your reseller considers necessary to fulfill its
obligations under this Statement of Limited Warranty (which may include
shipping the Machine for such processing to other IBM service locations around
the world), and (c) ensure that such processing complies with any laws
applicable to such Personal Data.
Limitation of Liability
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine only while it is 1) in
IBM’s possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for the
transportation charges.
Neither IBM nor your reseller are responsible for any of your confidential,
proprietary or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM
for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine prior to its
return.
Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM’s part or other
liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such instance,
regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM
(including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract or
tort claim), except for any liability that cannot be waived or limited by applicable
laws, IBM is liable for no more than
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and
tangible personal property; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages, up to the charges (if recurring,
12 months’ charges apply) for the Machine that is subject of the claim. For
purposes of this item, the term “Machine” includes Machine Code and Licensed
Internal Code (“LIC”).
This limit also applies to IBM’s suppliers and your reseller. It is the maximum for
which IBM, its suppliers, and your reseller are collectively responsible.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM, ITS SUPPLIERS OR RESELLERS
LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING EVEN IF INFORMED OF THEIR
POSSIBILITY: 1) THIRD PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES

TO YOU.

country and location specific information.
1. Customer Replaceable Unit (“CRU”) Service
IBM provides replacement CRUs to you for you to install. CRU information and
replacement instructions are shipped with your Machine and are available from
IBM at any time on your request. Installation of Tier 1 CRUs is your
responsibility. If IBM installs a Tier 1 CRU at your request, you will be charged
for the installation. You may install a Tier 2 CRU yourself or request IBM to
install it, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service designated
for your Machine. IBM specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement
CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is
required, 1) return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement
CRU, and 2) you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not
receive the defective CRU within 30 days of your receipt of the replacement.
2. On-site Service
IBM or your reseller will either repair or exchange the failing Machine at your
location and verify its operation. You must provide suitable working area to allow
disassembly and reassembly of the IBM Machine. The area must be clean, well
lit and suitable for the purpose. For some Machines, certain repairs may require
sending the Machine to an IBM service center.
3. Courier or Depot Service*
You will disconnect the failing Machine for collection arranged by IBM. IBM will
provide you with a shipping container for you to return your Machine to a
designated service center. A courier will pick up your Machine and deliver it to
the designated service center. Following its repair or exchange, IBM will arrange
the return delivery of the Machine to your location. You are responsible for its
installation and verification.
4. Customer Carry-In or Mail-In Service
You will deliver or mail as IBM specifies (prepaid unless IBM specifies
otherwise) the failing Machine suitably packaged to a location IBM designates.
After IBM has repaired or exchanged the Machine, IBM will make it available for
your collection or, for Mail-in Service, IBM will return it to you at IBM’s expense,
unless IBM specifies otherwise. You are responsible for the subsequent
installation and verification of the Machine.
5. CRU and On-site Service
This type of Warranty Service is a combination of Type 1 and Type 2 (see
above).
