Connecting and Powering On the Server (Standalone Mode), page 2-7
•
Defining Static Network Settings Using a Script File, page 2-10
•
NIC Modes and NIC Redundancy Settings, page 2-11
•
Using the 10 Gb Ports, page 2-12
Connecting and Powering On the Server (Standalone Mode)
Note
The server is shipped with a default NIC mode called Shared LOM, default NIC redundancy is
active-active, and DHCP is enabled. Shared LOM mode enables the two 1Gb Ethernet ports to access
the Cisco Integrated Management Interface (CIMC). If you want to use the 10Gb Ethernet ports, the
10/100 management ports, or a Cisco network adapter card port to access the CIMC, you must first
connect to the server and change the NIC mode as described in Step 3 of the following procedure. In that
step, you can also change the NIC redundancy and set static IP settings.
Use the following procedure to perform initial setup of the server.
Step 1
Attach a supplied power cord to each power supply in your server, and then attach the power cord to a
grounded AC power outlet. See the Power Specifications, page A-2 for power specifications.
Wait for approximately two minutes to let the server boot in standby power during the first bootup.
Note
Depending on how much memory is installed in the server, bootup might take two minutes or more
because of the memory verification operation during bootup.
You can verify power status by looking at the Power Status LED (see Figure 1-1 on page 1-1):
Note
Step 2
•
Off—The server is in standby power mode. Power is supplied only to the CIMC and some
motherboard functions.
•
Solid green—The server is in main power mode. Power is supplied to all server components.
During bootup, the server beeps once for each USB device that is attached to the server. Even if there
are no external USB devices attached, there is a short beep for each virtual USB device such as a virtual
floppy drive, CD/DVD drive, keyboard, or mouse. A beep is also emitted if a USB device is hot-plugged
or hot-unplugged during BIOS power-on self test (POST), or while you are accessing the BIOS Setup
utility or the EFI shell.
Connect a USB keyboard and VGA monitor to the USB and VGA connectors on the front panel (see
Figure 1-1 on page 1-1).

Note
Step 3
Alternatively, you can use the VGA and USB ports on the rear panel. However, you cannot use the front
panel console connector VGA and the rear panel VGA at the same time. If you are connected to one VGA
connector and you then connect a video device to the other connector, the first VGA connector is
disabled. You can then reactivate the first VGA connector only by rebooting the server.
Set NIC mode, NIC redundancy, and choose whether to enable DHCP or set static network settings:
a.
Press the Power button to boot the server. Watch for the prompt to press F8.
b.
During bootup, press F8 when prompted to open the BIOS CIMC Configuration Utility.
c.
Set the NIC mode to your choice for which ports to use to access the CIMC for server management
(see Figure 1-3 on page 1-2 for identification of the ports):
– Dedicated—The two 10/100 management ports are used to access the CIMC. You have to select
a NIC redundancy and IP setting.
– Shared LOM (default)—The two 1Gb Ethernet ports are used to access the CIMC. This is the
factory default setting, along with Active-active NIC redundancy and DHCP enabled.
– Shipping—The two 10/100 management ports are used to access the CIMC, but each port has a
default setting:
Port M1—DHCP is enabled, with no NIC redundancy.
Port M2—Static IP address is 10.1.1.7, with no NIC redundancy.
– Shared LOM 10G—The two 10Gb Ethernet ports are used to access the CIMC. You have to
select a NIC redundancy and IP setting.
Note
See Using the 10 Gb Ports, page 2-12 for more information about the SFP+ and
10G Base-T ports.
– Cisco Card—The ports on an installed Cisco network adapter card are used to access the CIMC.
You have to select a NIC redundancy and IP setting.

Special Considerations for the Cisco UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card (N2XX-ACPCI01),
page 3-37.
Use this utility to change the NIC redundancy to your preference. This server has three possible NIC
redundancy settings:
– None—The Ethernet ports operate independently and do not fail over if there is a problem.
– Active-standby—If an active Ethernet port fails, traffic fails over to a standby port.
– Active-active—All Ethernet ports are utilized simultaneously.
e.
Note
f.
Note
g.
Note
Choose whether to enable DHCP for dynamic network settings, or enter static network settings.
Before you enable DHCP, your DHCP server must be preconfigured with the range of MAC
addresses for this server. The MAC address is printed on a label on the rear of the server. This
server has a range of six MAC addresses assigned to the CIMC. The MAC address printed on
the label is the beginning of the range of six contiguous MAC addresses.
Optional: Use this utility to make VLAN settings, and to set a default CIMC user password.
Changes to the settings take effect after approximately 45 seconds. Refresh with F5 and wait
until the new settings appear before you reboot the server in the next step.
Press F10 to save your settings and reboot the server.
If you chose to enable DHCP, the dynamically assigned IP and MAC addresses are displayed on the
console screen during bootup.
Tip
There is an alternate procedure for defining static settings by automating with a script. See the
“Defining Static Network Settings Using a Script File” section on page 2-10.
Step 4
Connect to the CIMC for server management. Connect Ethernet cables from your LAN to the server by
using the ports that you selected by your NIC Mode setting in Step 3. The Active-active and
Active-passive NIC redundancy settings require you to connect to two ports.
Step 5
Use a browser and the IP address of the CIMC to connect to the CIMC Setup Utility. The IP address is
based upon the settings that you made in Step 3 (either a static address or the address assigned by your
DHCP server).
Note
Step 6
The default user name for the server is admin. The default password is password.
To manage the server, see the Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Server Configuration Guide or the Cisco
UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Server CLI Configuration Guide for instructions on using those interfaces.

Defining Static Network Settings Using a Script File
Use the following procedure to create a static network script:
Step 1
Use a text editor to create a file named network.cfg.
Step 2
Add the following content to network.cfg:
dhcp-enabled:
v4-addr:
v4-netmask:
v4-gateway:
vlan-enabled:
vlan-id:
vlan-priority:
password:
NIC-mode:
NIC-redundancy:
Note
Use only the features that you want to set when adding content to network.cfg.
Example 2-1
network.cfg Example
dhcp-enabled: 0
v4-addr: 10.193.70.102
v4-netmask: 255.255.255.0
v4-gateway: 10.193.70.1
password: nonpasswd
Example 2-1 disables DHCP, sets the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and user password.
Step 3
Use a text editor to create a file named startup.nsh. with the following contents:
fs0:
cimcconfig
Step 4
Copy your network.cfg file and your startup.nsh file to a USB thumb drive.
Step 5
Insert the USB thumb drive into a USB port on the server.
Step 6
Press and release the Power button to boot the server.
Step 7
Observe the booting process and press F6 when prompted to enter the BIOS Boot Manager.
Step 8
Select EFI as the boot device and then press Enter.
The server power cycles and launches the configuration utility, which runs the startup.nsh file. Any
errors are printed to the screen and an errors.txt file.
Step 9
Remove the USB thumb drive, alter the network.cfg file with your next IP address, and then insert the
USB thumb drive into the next server that you want to configure.
Step 10
After the server has been assigned an IP address, you can use that address to access the service
processor’s GUI or CLI management system. See the Cisco UCS C-Series Server Integrated
Management Controller Configuration Guide or the Cisco UCS C-Series Server Integrated Management
Controller CLI Configuration Guide.

Using the 10 Gb Ports
This server has four 10 Gb ports on the rear panel (see Figure 1-3 on page 1-2):
Two 10GBase-T ports
Two SFP+ ports
We recommend that you use either the two SFP+ ports or the two 10GBase-T ports.
•
•
Although there are four physical ports, only two can have active PHY links at one time. However, the
dual media feature of this server does enable more advanced connections that can switch PHY links to
alternate media when a PHY link goes down.
The underlying architecture has a dual media-access control (MAC) sub-layer that manages the PHY
links for all four ports, as shown in Figure 2-5:

Note the following considerations:
•
Your OS will report only the two PHY links that are active, rather than the four physical ports (for
example, 10GE 1 and 10GE 2). These could be the SFP+ ports or the 10GBase-T ports, depending
on which have active links.
•
You can connect to all four physical 10 Gb ports at once. However, only two of the ports will have
active links at one time.
•
If you connect to all four 10 Gb ports, the 10GBase-T PHY links have priority and they will be the
active PHY links. If a 10GBase-T PHY link goes down or is disabled in this configuration, the dual
MAC switches traffic to the corresponding SFP+ port.
•
The driver firmware allows you to change the PHY link priority to the SFP+ ports, or to disable the
PHY links for either the SFP+ or the 10GBase-T ports. Consult with your Cisco service provider for
details of this advanced procedure.

Recovering a Corrupt BIOS
There are two ways that you can recover a corrupted BIOS:
•
You can use the CIMC management interface, either GUI or CLI. For instructions, refer to the Cisco
UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Server Configuration Guide or the Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount
Server CLI Configuration Guide.
•
You can use the BIOS recovery function of header J6D1 on the motherboard. For instructions, refer
to the “Using a BIOS Recovery Jumper on Header J6D1” section on page 2-19.
Using a BIOS Recovery Jumper on Header J6D1
The J6D1 header is a 3-pin header on the motherboard (see Figure 2-6 on page 2-20). You can use a
jumper on this header to force the server to flash a new BIOS, in the case of a system hang. For example,
if the system hangs after a BIOS update, use this procedure to force the server to look for the new
firmware.
Step 1
Download the BIOS update package for the server from Cisco.com and extract it to a temporary location.
Click Unified Computing at the following URL and navigate to the download.
http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/download/index.html
Step 2
Copy the contents of the extracted UEFI folder to the root directory a USB thumb drive.
Step 3
Power off the server as described in the “Shutting Down and Powering Off the Server” section on
page 3-6.
Step 4
Slide the server out the front of the rack far enough so that you can remove the top cover. You might
have to detach cables from the rear panel to provide clearance.
Caution
If you cannot safely view and access the component, remove the server from the rack.
Step 5
Remove the top cover as described in the “Removing and Replacing the Server Top Cover” section on
page 3-7.
Step 6
Move the shorting jumper to pins 2 and 3 of the J6D1 header (see Figure 2-6 on page 2-20).
Step 7
Replace the top cover.
Step 8
Insert the USB thumb drive into a USB port on the server.
Step 9
Return the server to main power mode by pressing the Power button on the front panel. The server is in
main power mode when the Power LED is green.
Note
You must allow the entire server to reboot to main power mode to complete the recovery. This
is because the state of the jumper cannot be determined without the host CPU running. The
server automatically boots into the UEFI shell and updates the BIOS from the USB thumb drive.
Step 10
Wait for server to complete the BIOS update, then remove the USB thumb drive from the server.
Step 11
Press the Power button to shut down the server to standby power mode.
Step 12
Remove the top cover from the server.

is safe to power off the server from this mode.
You can invoke a graceful shutdown or an emergency shutdown (hard shutdown) by using either of the
following methods:
Step 1
Step 2
Caution
•
Use the CIMC management interface.
•
Use the Power button on the server front panel. To use the Power button, follow these steps:
Check the color of the Power Status LED (see the “Operations Panel LEDs and Buttons” section on
page 3-3).
•
Green indicates that the server is in main power mode and must be shut down before it can be safely
powered off. Go to Step 2.
•
Off indicates that the server is already powered off or is in in standby mode and can be safely
powered off. Go to Step 3.
Invoke either a graceful shutdown or a hard shutdown:
To avoid data loss or damage to your operating system, you should always invoke a graceful shutdown
of the operating system.
•
Graceful shutdown—Press and release the Power button. The operating system will perform a
graceful shutdown and the server goes to standby mode, which is indicated by the Power Status LED
being off.

Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to
hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI)
that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not
operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place.

Replacing Power Supplies
The server can have two or four power supplies. Four power supplies are required for four-CPU
configurations.
To replace or install a power supply, follow these steps:
Note
Step 1
If you have ordered a server with power supply redundancy (at least four power supplies), you do not
have to power off the server to replace power supplies. Also see the note below about 1+1 redundancy.
Remove the power supply that you are replacing or a blank panel from an empty bay. See Figure 3-6:
a.
Do one of the following actions:
– If your server has only two power supplies, shut down and power off the server as described in
the “Shutting Down and Powering Off the Server” section on page 3-6. See the following note.
Note
You can use 2 power supplies with a 2-CPU configuration. In this case, 1+1 redundancy is
supported only if your server’s overall power consumption can be supported by a single 850W
power supply during the failure and hot-swap. For more information about your server’s power
consumption, consult with your Cisco sales representative or use the power calculator accessible
at the Unified Computing System Partner Resource Center:
http://www.ciscoprc.com/resourcelib.asp?id=937
– If your server has four power supplies, you do not have to shut down the server.
Step 2
b.
Remove the power cord from the power supply that you are replacing.
a.
Grasp the power supply handle while squeezing the release lever towards the handle.
b.
Pull the power supply out of the slot.

Replacing DIMMs
This section includes the following sections:
Note
•
Memory Performance Guidelines and Population Rules, page 3-25
•
DIMM Installation Procedure, page 3-27
To ensure the best server performance, it is important that you are familiar with memory performance
guidelines and population rules before you install or replace memory modules.
Memory Performance Guidelines and Population Rules
This section describes the type of memory that the server requires and its effect on performance. The
following topics are covered:
•
Memory Channels, page 3-25
•
DIMM Population Rules, page 3-26
•
DIMM and Rank Sparing, page 3-26
Memory Channels
Each CPU supports two memory risers. Figure 3-18 shows the placement of the CPUs and their
corresponding memory risers. The view shown is facing the front of the server. This numbering is also
inscribed on the top of the CPU cage.

Each memory riser contains two memory buffers that are connected to the CPU by serial memory
interface (SMI) channels. Each memory buffer has two channels, each containing a pair of DDR3
DRAM slots.
In Figure 3-19, the buffers and channels are:
•
Buffer 1, channel 1: slots 1B and 1D
•
Buffer 1, channel 2: slots 1A and 1C
•
Buffer 2, channel 1: slots 2B and 2D
•
Buffer 2, channel 2: slots 2A and 2C

DIMM Population Rules
Following are the DIMM population rules:
•
The minimum configuration for the server is, at least one matched DIMM pair installed in a memory
riser on either CPU1 or CPU2 (see Figure 3-18). All four CPUs can run from a single DIMM pair.
•
DIMMs are required to be populated in pairs. DIMMs for this server are sold as two-DIMM kits.
•
The DIMMs in any given pair must be identical.
•
Any DIMM installed in a memory riser corresponding to an empty CPU slot becomes inaccessible.
•
For optimal performance, distribute DIMMs evenly across all installed CPUs and memory buffers.
•
DIMMs within a channel are populated starting with the DIMMs farthest from the memory buffer
in a fill-farthest approach.
For example, the order that you should populate the four channels on a memory riser is as follows
(see also Figure 3-19):
1.
Slots 1B and 1D
2.
Slots 1A and 1C
3.
Slots 2B and 2D
4.
Slots 2A and 2C
DIMM and Rank Sparing
DIMM and rank sparing can be enabled in the BIOS configuration utility.
Sparing involves utilizing one of the DIMM pairs or rank pairs within each memory riser as a spare unit.
When any of the other DIMM pairs within the same memory riser experiences errors beyond a
pre-defined threshold, it fails over to the spare DIMM pair. Spared DIMMs and ranks are hidden from
the user and the OS so that the BIOS can migrate to a spare unit when it finds degrading DIMMs.
When sparing is enabled, the available system memory is lesser than the total installed memory.
•
When using DIMM sparing, the available memory equals total installed memory minus the size of
spared DIMMs.
•
When using rank sparing, available memory equals total installed memory minus the size of the
spared ranks. Rank size equals DIMM size divided by the number of ranks.

RAID Controller Considerations
This appendix provides RAID controller information, and it includes the following sections:
•
How to Determine Which Controller Is in Your Server, page C-1
•
How to Disable Quiet Boot For CIMC Firmware Earlier Than Release 1.2(1), page C-2
•
How To Launch an Option ROM-Based Controller Utility, page C-2
•
For More Information, page C-2
How to Determine Which Controller Is in Your Server
This server can be ordered or configured with a number of different RAID controllers:
•
Note
RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 support for up to 12 SAS or SATA drives, with the optional LSI
MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i RAID controller
You can configure a mixture of SAS and SATA drives when using an LSI MegaRAID card.
However, you cannot mix SAS and SATA drives within a volume. Two hot spares are supported
so that you can configure a global hot spare for each type (SAS or SATA), and then configure
your volumes to use their corresponding hot spare type (SAS or SATA).
There is a dedicated SAS riser slot for the RAID controller card in the chassis. There is also a mounting
point inside the chassis for the optional RAID battery backup unit that is available when using the LSI
MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i controller.
If you do not have a record of which option is used in your server, you can read the on-screen messages
that are displayed during system bootup
Information about the models of card installed are displayed as part of the verbose boot. You are also
prompted to press Ctrl-H to launch configuration utilities for those cards. For servers running CIMC
firmware earlier than release 1.2(1), see also How to Disable Quiet Boot For CIMC Firmware Earlier
Than Release 1.2(1), page C-2.

How to Disable Quiet Boot For CIMC Firmware Earlier Than Release 1.2(1)
Se n d d o c u m e n t c o m m e n t s t o u c s - d o c f e e d b a ck @ c i s c o . c o m
How to Disable Quiet Boot For CIMC Firmware Earlier Than
Release 1.2(1)
For CIMC firmware and BIOS release 1.2(1) and later, Quiet Boot has been removed. If you are running
CIMC firmware and BIOS earlier than release 1.2(1), you can use the following procedure to disable
Quiet Boot.
To disable quiet boot, so that controller information and the prompts for the option ROM-based LSI
utilities are displayed during bootup, follow these steps:
Step 1
Boot the server and watch for the F2 prompt.
Step 2
Press F2 when prompted to enter the BIOS Setup utility.
Step 3
On the Main page of the BIOS Setup utility, set Quiet Boot to Disabled.
This allows non-default messages, prompts, and POST messages to display during bootup instead of the
Cisco logo screen.
Step 4
Press F10 to save your changes, and to exit the utility.
How To Launch an Option ROM-Based Controller Utility
To alter the RAID configurations on your hard drives, you can use your host-based utilities that you
install on top of your host OS, or you can use the LSI option ROM-based utilities that are installed on
the server.
When you boot the server and you have quiet boot disabled, information about your controller is
displayed. The prompts for the key combination to launch the option ROM-based utilities for your
controller are also displayed.
To launch an option ROM-based controller utility, follow these steps:
Step 1
Watch for the prompt for your controller during verbose boot:
Step 2
Press Ctrl + H for the LSI controller utility.
For More Information
The LSI utilities have help documentation for more information about using the utilities.
For basic information on RAID and how to use the LSI utilities, see the documentation at LSI.com:
