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 bags until you are
ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following precautions:
x
•
Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
•
Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
•
Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
•
Do not leave the device where others can handle and possibly damage the device.
•
While the device is still in its anti-static bag, touch it lo an unpainted metal part of
the system unit for at least two seconds. (This drains static electricity from the
package and from your body.)
•
Remove the device from its package and install it directly into your system unit
without setting it down. If it is necessary to set the device down, place it on its
static-protective bag. (If your device is an adapter, place it component side up.)
Do not place the device on your system unit cover or on a metal table.
•
Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather because heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Installing memory options
Before you install memory, review the following:
•
The DIMM options available for your server are 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1
GB. Your server supports a maximum of 16 GB of system memory.
•
When 4 GB of memory is installed in the server, the amount of usable memory
will be reduced depending on the system configuration. A certain amount of
memory must be reserved below 4 GB for system resources. The usable memory
is reduced again when 16 GB of memory is installed. The BIOS will display only
the amount of memory available to the operating system.
•
Your server comes with a minimum of 512 MB of memory installed in bank 1.
When you install additional DIMMs, be sure to follow the DIMM installation
order in Table 2.
Table 2. DIMM installation order.

Installing a microprocessor
Your server comes with one microprocessor installed in microprocessor connector J34
(slot 1) on the system board and a terminator card in microprocessor slot 4. The
microprocessor in slot 1 is the startup (boot) microprocessor. If more than one
microprocessor is installed, the highest-numbered microprocessor is the
microprocessor from which the server will start. The lower-numbered
microprocessors are used as application microprocessors.

During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, will provide repair and exchange service for the Machine, without
charge, under the type of service designated for the Machine and will manage and
install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or
your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at
least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your
money will be refunded. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good
working order.
Extent of Warranty
The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a Machine resulting from
misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment,
improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is not
responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of Machine or parts
identification labels.
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. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION
TO JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO

conformance with their Specifications. IBM or your reseller will inform you of the
available types of service for a Machine based on its country of installation. IBM may
repair the failing Machine or exchange it at its discretion.
When 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.
Any feature, conversion, or upgrade IBM or your reseller services must be installed on
a Machine which is 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine
and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion, or
32

IBM Statement of Warranty Worldwide except Canada,
Puerto Rico, Turkey, United States (Part 1 – General
Terms)
This Statement of Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 - Countryunique Terms. The terms of Part 2 may replace or modify those of Part 1. The
warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Warranty apply only to Machines
you purchase for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller. 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. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties apply only in the
country where you acquire the Machine. Nothing in this Statement of Warranty
affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived or limited by contract.
If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.
Machine - IBM
xSeries 350
Warranty Period* - Three Years
*Contact your place of purchase for warranty service information. Some IBM
Machines are eligible for On-site warranty service depending on the country where
service is performed.
The IBM Warranty for Machines
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and workmanship
and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications. The warranty period for a
Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date
on your sales receipt is the Date of Installation, unless IBM or your reseller informs
you otherwise.
During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, will provide repair and exchange service for the Machine, without
charge, under the type of service designated for the Machine and will manage and
install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or
your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at
least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your
money will be refunded. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good
working order.
Extent of Warranty
The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a Machine resulting from
misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment,
improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is not
responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of Machine or parts
identification labels.
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

IBM xSeries 350: Installation Guide
PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION
TO JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO
THE ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN
THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE
WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Items Not Covered by Warranty
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
Unless specified otherwise, IBM provides non-IBM machines WITHOUT
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
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, will be provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service for the Machine, contact your reseller or IBM. You may be
required to present proof of purchase.
IBM or your reseller provides certain types of repair and exchange service, either at
your location or at a service center, to keep Machines in, or restore them to,
conformance with their Specifications. IBM or your reseller will inform you of the
available types of service for a Machine based on its country of installation. IBM may
repair the failing Machine or exchange it at its discretion.
When 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.
Any feature, conversion, or upgrade IBM or your reseller services must be installed on
a Machine which is 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine
and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion, or
upgrade. 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.
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 problem determination, problem analysis, and service request
procedures that IBM or your reseller provides,
b.
secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine,
c.
provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit them to fulfill their obligations, and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine’s location.
Appendix A. Warranties and notices
35
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine 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 is responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary
or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM or your
reseller for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine
prior to its return.
Production Status
Each IBM Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In some
cases, the Machine may not be new and may have been previously installed.
Regardless of the Machine’s production status, IBM’s appropriate warranty terms
apply.
Limitation of Liability
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),
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 greater of U.S. $100,000

apply) for the Machine that is the subject of the claim.
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.

FOLLOWING: 1) THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES
(OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF,
OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL,
OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR SAVINGS), EVEN IF IBM, ITS
