IBM xSeries 235 Type 8671: Installation Guide
Chapter 2. Installing options
This chapter provides the basic information needed to install options in your server.
This section is for all users, but it is written with the experienced user in mind. If
you need more detailed installation information, see the Option Installation Guide on
the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
If you have no options to install, continue with “Cabling the server” on page 40.
Installation guidelines
Before you begin to install options in your server, read the following information:
v Become familiar with the information provided in “Safety” on page v and
“Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 12. These guidelines will help you
work safely while working with your server options.
v You do not need to turn off the server to install or replace hot-swap power
supplies, hot-swap drives, hot-swap fans, Active PCI™ (hot-plug) adapters, or
hot-plug Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices.
v The orange color on components and labels in your server identifies hot-swap or
hot-plug component. You can install or remove hot-swap and hot-plug
components while the system is running, provided that your system is configured
to support this function. For complete details about installing or removing a
hot-swap or hot-plug component, see the detailed information in this chapter.
v The blue color on components and labels identifies touch points where you can
grip a component, move a latch, and so on.
v Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for your server, monitor, and any other options that you intend to install.
v Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
v For a list of supported options for your server, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/ on the World Wide Web.
System reliability considerations
To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that:
v Each of the drive bays has either a drive or a filler panel installed.
v Each of the power supply-bays has a power supply installed.
v For tower models, make sure that there is at least 50 mm (2 inches) of ventilated
space at the sides of the server and 100 mm (4 inches) at the front and rear of
the server.
For rack configurations, make sure that space is available around the server to
enable the server cooling system to work properly. See the documentation that
comes with the rack for additional information.
v The server cover is in place during normal operation.
v The air-baffle cover over the microprocessors remains closed during normal
operation.
v A removed hot-swap drive is replaced within 2 minutes of removal.
v Cables for optional adapters are routed according to the instructions provided
with the adapters.
v A failed fan is replaced within 48 hours.
v The server is turned off and the power cords are disconnected before you open
the air-baffle cover.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2002
11
v The air-baffle assembly is always installed in the server except when you are
installing or removing the components that are under the air-baffle cover.
v When the air-baffle assembly is installed in the server, the air-baffle cover is
always closed.
v Microprocessor socket 2 always contains either a microprocessor baffle or a
microprocessor.
Working inside the server with the power on
Your server supports hot-plug, hot-add, and hot-swap devices and is designed to
operate safely while turned on with the cover removed. Follow these guidelines
when you work inside a server that is turned on:
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, necklaces, rings, 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 packages 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 possibly damage the
device.
v While the device is still in its static-protective package, touch it to an unpainted
metal part of the server 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 your server without
setting it down. If it is necessary to set the device down, place it in its
static-protective package. Do not place the device on your server cover or on a
metal table.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather because heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Adapter considerations
Before you install an adapter, review the following:
v Read the documentation that comes with your operating system.
v Locate the documentation that comes with the adapter and follow those
instructions in addition to the instructions in this chapter. If you need to change
the switch or jumper settings on your adapter, follow the instructions that come
with the adapter.
v You can install full-length adapters and non-hot-plug adapters in any expansion
slot.
v The 32-bit PCI slot supports 5.0 V signaling PCI adapters; it does not support 3.3
V signaling adapters.
v The 64-bit PCI-X slots 2 through 6 support 3.3 V signaling PCI or PCI-X
adapters; they do not support 5.0 V signaling adapters.
v The PCI bus configuration is:
– Non-hot-plug, 32-bit PCI slot 1 is on PCI bus A, 33 MHz
– Non-hot-plug, 64-bit PCI-X slots 2 and 3, and the integrated Ethernet
controller, are on PCI bus B, 100 MHz (independent of slot 4)
– Non-hot-plug, 64-bit PCI-X slot 4 and the integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities are on PCI bus B, 100 MHz (independent of slots 2 and 3)
– Hot-plug, 64-bit PCI-X slot 5 is on PCI bus C, 133 MHz (independent of slot
6)
Chapter 2. Installing options
21
– Hot-plug, 64-bit PCI-X slot 6 is on PCI bus C, 133 MHz (independent of slot
5)
Notes:
1. PCI bus A is often referred to as bus 0; PCI bus B is often referred to as bus
1 and bus 2; and PCI bus C is often referred to as bus 3 and bus 5.
However, the bus numbers vary according to the adapters that are installed.
2. If an optional ServeRAID-5i controller is installed, it overrides the standard
functionality of the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities and
forces PCI-X slot 4 to 66 MHz. The ServeRAID-5i controller must be installed
in slot 4 using the 3-U bracket that comes with the controller.
3. The integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities is on PCI bus B.
v The optional IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter must be installed in PCI slot 1 only.
Use the ribbon cable that comes with the adapter to connect the adapter to the
Remote Supervisor Adapter connector (J27) on the system board.
v The system scans PCI and PCI-X slots 1 through 6 to assign system resources.
The system then starts (boots) the system devices in the following order, if you
have not changed the default boot precedence: integrated SCSI controller with
RAID capabilities (or optional ServeRAID-5i controller), integrated Ethernet
controller, and then PCI and PCI-X slots 1 through 6.
Note: To change the boot precedence for PCI and PCI-X devices, start the
Configuration/Setup Utility program and select Start Options from the
main menu. See the User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD
for details about using the Configuration/Setup Utility program.
v The Active PCI-X slots contain:
– Power-on LEDs
– Internal attention LEDs
– External attention LEDs
Installing a hot-plug adapter (slots 5 and 6)
This section contains the procedure for installing a hot-plug PCI or PCI-X adapter. If
your operating system supports hot-plug PCI or PCI-X adapters, you can replace a
failing hot-plug PCI or PCI-X adapter with a new adapter of the same type without
turning off power to the server. If your operating system and adapter also support
the hot-add feature, you can install a new adapter without turning off the power to
the server.
Notes:
1. Although an optional Integrated xSeries Adapter (IXA) can be installed only in
slots 5 and 6, it is not a hot-plug adapter. See “Installing a non-hot-plug adapter
(any slot)” on page 25 for instructions for installing an IXA adapter.
2. You do not have to turn off the server to install hot-plug adapters in the hot-plug
slots. However, you must turn off the server when performing any steps that
involve installing or removing cables.

Attention: You must install the IXA adapter jumper (J42) between pins 2 and 3
when using an Integrated xSeries Adapter (IXA) in slots 5 and 6.
Notes:
1. Although the optional IXA adapter is not a hot-plug adapter, it must be installed
in slots 5 and 6. It is a double width adapter that installs in slot 5 and spans
slots 5 and 6.
2. You can install an optional ServeRAID-5i controller only in PCI-X slot 4. Slot 4 is
the only PCI-X slot that supports the ServeRAID-5i controller requirements.
Install the ServeRAID-5i controller using the 3-U bracket that comes with the
controller.
Complete the following steps to install a non-hot-plug PCI or PCI-X adapter:
1. Review the information in “Safety” on page v, “Installation guidelines” on
page 11, and “Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 12.
2. Remove the server cover (see “Removing the server left-side cover and bezel
(tower model)” on page 14 or “Removing the server top cover and bezel (rack
configuration)” on page 16).
Attention: Expansion slot covers must be installed on all empty slots. This
maintains the electronic emissions characteristics of the system and ensures
proper cooling of system components.
3. Determine which expansion slot you will use for the adapter, and remove the
expansion-slot cover. See the Option Installation Guide on the IBM xSeries
Documentation CD for details.

4. If you are installing an IXA adapter in slots 5 and 6, make sure that the IXA
adapter jumper (J42) is installed between pins 2 and 3; otherwise, make sure it
is installed between pins 1 and 2. (See “System-board switches and jumpers”
on page 8 for the jumper location.)
5. If you are installing a full-length adapter, lift the adapter-retention clip on the
adapter-support bracket. Otherwise, continue with the next step.
6. See the documentation that comes with your adapter for any cabling
instructions. It might be easier for you to route any cables before you install
the adapter.
Attention: Avoid touching the components and gold-edge connectors on the
adapter.
7. Install the adapter:
a. If you are installing a full-length adapter, remove the blue adapter guide (if
any) from the end of the adapter.

9. Connect any needed cables to the adapter.
10. If you have other options to install or remove, do so now; otherwise, go to
“Completing the installation” on page 34.
Installing memory modules
Adding memory to your server is an easy way to make programs run faster. You
can increase the amount of memory in your server by installing memory-module
options. When you install memory, you must install a pair of matched dual inline
memory modules (DIMMs). See the Option Installation Guide on the IBM xSeries
Documentation CD for more details.
Notes:
1. When you install additional DIMMs, be sure to install them in pairs. All the
DIMMs in a single pair must be the same size, speed, type, and technology.
You can mix compatible DIMMs from various manufacturers.
2. The second pair does not have to contain DIMMs of the same size, speed, type,
and technology as the first pair.
3. Install only 133 MHz, 2.5 V, 184-pin, double-data-rate (DDR), PC2100,
registered synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) with error
correcting code (ECC) DIMMs. These DIMMs must be compatible with the latest
PC2100 SDRAM Registered DIMM specification. For a list of supported options
for your server, go to http://www.ibm.com/us/compat/ on the World Wide Web.
4. Your server supports Chipkill™ memory if the DIMMs are all type x4 and larger
than 128 MB. Using any 128 MB DIMMs, or DIMMs that are not of type x4, on
your server disables Chipkill memory.
5. You do not need to save new configuration information when installing or
removing DIMMs. The only exception is if you replace a faulty DIMM that was
marked as Disabled in the Memory Settings menu. In this case, you need to
re-enable that memory row in the Configuration/Setup Utility or reload the
default memory settings. See the User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries
Documentation CD for more information.
Install the DIMMs in the order shown in the following table.

4. Determine the connectors into which you will install the DIMMs. (See Table 3 on
page 27.)
5. To install the DIMMs, repeat the following steps for each DIMM that you install:
a. Turn the DIMM so that the DIMM keys align correctly with the connector on
the system board.
Attention: To avoid breaking the retaining clips or damaging the DIMM
connectors, handle the clips gently.
b. Insert the DIMM by pressing the DIMM straight into the connector. Be sure
that the retaining clips snap into the closed positions.
Note: If a gap exists between the DIMM and the retaining clips, the DIMM
has not been properly installed. In this case, open the retaining clips
and remove the DIMM; then, reinsert the DIMM.
6. Close the cover on the air-baffle assembly.
7. If you have other options to install or remove, do so now; otherwise, go to
“Completing the installation” on page 34.
Installing a hot-swap drive
Your server supports a maximum of six 1-inch (26 mm) slim-high, 3.5-inch,
hot-swap hard disk drives in the standard hot-swap bays. In the tower model, the
hot-swap bays are arranged vertically in the standard hard disk drive cage; the bay
numbers are 0 through 5 (from bottom to top). In the rack configuration, the
hot-swap bays are arranged horizontally in the standard hard disk drive cage; the
bay numbers are 0 through 5 (from left to right). In the tower model, bays 0 through
5 are below the removable-media drive bays. In the rack configuration, bays 0
through 5 are to the left of the removable-media drive bays.
Chapter 2. Installing options
29
You cannot install hot-swap drives in the removable-media or non-hot-swap drive
bays on the front side of the server, unless you install the 3-Pack Ultra320
Hot-Swap Expansion option. See the Option Installation Guide on the IBM xSeries
Documentation CD for instructions for installing this option.
Notes:
1. All hot-swap drives being used in the server should have the same throughput
speed rating; mixing speed ratings might cause all drives to operate at the lower
throughput speed.
2. To minimize the possibility of damage to the hard disk drives when you are
installing them in a rack configuration, install the server in the rack before
installing the hard disk drives.
3. You do not have to turn off the server to install hot-swap drives in the hot-swap
drive bays. However, you must turn off the server when performing any steps
that involve installing or removing cables.
4. You can install three additional hot-swap hard disk drives in the server after you
install the 3-Pack Ultra320 Hot-Swap Expansion option. These drives are in the
optional hard disk drive cage.
5. Some filler panels come with a slim filler.
6. The SCSI ID for each hot-swap hard disk drive is printed on the bezel.
The following illustration shows how to install a hot-swap hard disk drive.

Complete the following steps to install a drive in a hot-swap bay:
Attention: To maintain proper system cooling, do not operate the server for more
than 10 minutes without either a drive or a filler panel installed for each bay.
1. Review the information in “Safety” on page v, “Installation guidelines” on
page 11, and “Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 12.
2. Remove the filler panel from one of the empty hot-swap bays.
3. Install the hard disk drive in the hot-swap bay:
a. Ensure that the tray handle is open (that is, perpendicular to the drive).
b. Align the drive assembly with the guide rails in the bay.
c. Gently push the drive assembly into the bay until the drive stops.
d. Push the tray handle to the closed (locked) position.
Notes:
1. When you turn on the server, you can check the hard disk drive status LEDs to
verify that the hard disk drives are operating properly.
30
IBM xSeries 235 Type 8671: Installation Guide
If the amber hard disk drive status LED for a drive is lit continuously, that drive
is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the green hard disk drive activity LED is
flashing, the drive is being accessed.
2. If your server will be configured for RAID operation using the integrated SCSI
controller with RAID capabilities or an optional ServeRAID™ controller, you will
need to configure your disk arrays before installing your operating system. See
the ServeRAID documentation on the IBM ServeRAID Support CD for additional
information on RAID operation and complete instructions for using ServeRAID
Manager.
Installing an additional microprocessor
Your server comes with one or two microprocessors installed on the system board.
Your server supports two microprocessors. With two microprocessors, your server
can operate as a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) server. With SMP, certain
operating systems and application programs can distribute the processing load
among the microprocessors. If your server comes with one microprocessor, you can
install a second microprocessor.
Attention: To ensure proper server operation when you install an additional
microprocessor, use microprocessors that have the same cache size and type, and
the same clock speed. Microprocessor internal and external clock frequencies must
be identical. You can use the Configuration/Setup Utility program in your server to
determine the specific type of microprocessor on your system board.
Important: A boot processor must always be installed in socket U13 of the system
board.
Notes:
1. To order additional microprocessor options, contact your IBM reseller or IBM
marketing representative.
2. When you install a microprocessor in socket U9, you must also install the
voltage regulator module (VRM) that comes with the microprocessor, in VRM
connector J1.
3. The microprocessor sockets in this server contain built-in termination for the
microprocessor bus; therefore, terminator cards are not required for empty
microprocessor sockets. However, for airflow, an empty microprocessor socket
must contain a microprocessor baffle.
4. The microprocessor speeds are automatically set for this server; therefore, you
do not need to set any microprocessor frequency-selection jumpers or switches.
5. If you need to replace a microprocessor, call for service.

IBM Statement of Limited Warranty Z125-4753-06 8/2000
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 Country-unique Terms. 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, 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 Limited 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.
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 (“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.
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.
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 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. 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 a Machine, contact IBM or your
reseller. If you do not register your Machine with IBM, you may be required to
present proof of purchase.
74
IBM xSeries 235 Type 8671: Installation Guide
During the warranty period, IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, provides without charge certain types of repair and exchange
service 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. At its discretion, IBM or your
reseller will 1) either repair or exchange the failing Machine and 2) provide the
service either at your location or a service center. IBM or your reseller will also
manage and install selected engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
Some parts of IBM Machines are designated as Customer Replaceable Units
(called “CRUs”), e.g., keyboards, memory, or hard disk drives. IBM ships CRUs to
you for replacement by you. You must return all defective CRUs to IBM within 30
days of your receipt of the replacement CRU. You are responsible for downloading
designated Machine Code and Licensed Internal Code updates from an IBM
Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that
IBM provides.
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. 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.
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.
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
Appendix B. Warranty information
75
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.
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 LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE 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, LOST
PROFITS OR LOST SAVINGS, EVEN IF IBM, ITS SUPPLIERS OR YOUR
RESELLER IS INFORMED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO
NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION
MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Governing Law: Both you and IBM consent to the application of the laws of the
country in which you acquired the Machine to govern, interpret, and enforce all of
your and IBM’s rights, duties, and obligations arising from, or relating in any manner
to, the subject matter of this Agreement, without regard to conflict of law principles.
