NMI functionality
An NMI crash dump enables administrators to create crash dump files when a system is hung and not
responding to traditional debug mechanisms.
Crash dump log analysis is an essential part of diagnosing reliability problems, such as hangs in
operating systems, device drivers, and applications. Many crashes freeze a system, and the only
available action for administrators is to cycle the system power. Resetting the system erases any
information that could support problem analysis, but the NMI feature preserves that information by
performing a memory dump before a hard reset.
To force the OS to invoke the NMI handler and generate a crash dump log, the administrator can do any
of the following:
•
Short the NMI jumper pins
•
Press the NMI switch
•
Use the iLO Virtual NMI feature
For additional information, see the whitepaper on the HP website
(http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00797875/c00797875.pdf).

Battery pack LEDs
Item ID
Color
Description
1
Green
System Power LED. This LED glows steadily when the
system is powered up and 12 V system power is
available. This power supply is used to maintain the
battery charge and provide supplementary power to the
cache microcontroller.
2
Green
Auxiliary Power LED. This LED glows steadily when 3.3V
auxiliary voltage is detected. The auxiliary voltage is
used to preserve BBWC data and is available any time
that the system power cords are connected to a power
supply.
3
Amber
Battery Health LED. To interpret the illumination patterns
of this LED, see the following table.
4
Green
BBWC Status LED. To interpret the illumination patterns
of this LED, see the following table.

LED3 pattern
LED4 pattern
Interpretation
—
One blink every
two seconds
The system is powered down, and the cache contains data that has
not yet been written to the drives. Restore system power as soon as
possible to prevent data loss.
Data preservation time is extended any time that 3.3 V auxiliary
power is available, as indicated by LED 2. In the absence of
auxiliary power, battery power alone preserves the data. A fullycharged battery can normally preserve data for at least two days.
The battery lifetime also depends on the cache module size. For
further information, refer to the controller QuickSpecs on the HP
website (http://www.hp.com).
—
Double blink,
then pause
The cache microcontroller is waiting for the host controller to
communicate.
—
One blink per
second
The battery pack is below the minimum charge level and is being
charged. Features that require a battery (such as write cache,
capacity expansion, stripe size migration, and RAID migration) are
temporarily unavailable until charging is complete. The recharge
process takes between 15 minutes and two hours, depending on
the initial capacity of the battery.
—
Steady glow
The battery pack is fully charged, and posted write data is stored
in the cache.
—
Off
The battery pack is fully charged, and there is no posted write data
in the cache.
One blink per
second
One blink per
second
An alternating green and amber blink pattern indicates that the
cache microcontroller is executing from within its boot loader and
receiving new flash code from the host controller.
Steady glow
—
There is a short circuit across the battery terminals or within the
battery pack. BBWC features are disabled until the battery pack is
replaced. The life expectancy of a battery pack is typically more
than three years.

Optimum environment
When installing the server, select a location that meets the environmental standards described in this
section.
Space and airflow requirements
Tower server
Setup 31
In a tower configuration, leave at least a 7.6-cm (3-in) clearance space at the front and back of the server
for proper ventilation.
Rack server
To allow for servicing and adequate airflow, observe the following space and airflow requirements when
deciding where to install a rack:
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 63.5 cm (25 in) in front of the rack.
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 76.2 cm (30 in) behind the rack.
•
Leave a minimum clearance of 121.9 cm (48 in) from the back of the rack to the back of another
rack or row of racks.
HP servers draw in cool air through the front door and expel warm air through the rear door. Therefore,
the front and rear rack doors must be adequately ventilated to allow ambient room air to enter the
cabinet, and the rear door must be adequately ventilated to allow the warm air to escape from the
cabinet.
CAUTION: To prevent improper cooling and damage to the equipment, do not block the
ventilation openings.
When vertical space in the rack is not filled by a server or rack component, the gaps between the
components cause changes in airflow through the rack and across the servers. Cover all gaps with
blanking panels to maintain proper airflow.
CAUTION: Always use blanking panels to fill empty vertical spaces in the rack. This
arrangement ensures proper airflow. Using a rack without blanking panels results in improper
cooling that can lead to thermal damage.
The 9000 and 10000 Series Racks provide proper server cooling from flow-through perforations in the
front and rear doors that provide 64 percent open area for ventilation.
CAUTION: When using a Compaq branded 7000 Series rack, you must install the high
airflow rack door insert [P/N 327281-B21 (42U) or P/N 157847-B21 (22U)] to provide
proper front-to-back airflow and cooling.
CAUTION: If a third-party rack is used, observe the following additional requirements to
ensure adequate airflow and to prevent damage to the equipment:
• Front and rear doors—If the 42U rack includes closing front and rear doors, you must
allow 5,350 sq cm (830 sq in) of holes evenly distributed from top to bottom to permit
adequate airflow (equivalent to the required 64 percent open area for ventilation).
• Side—The clearance between the installed rack component and the side panels of the rack
must be a minimum of 7 cm (2.75 in).
Temperature requirements
To ensure continued safe and reliable equipment operation, install or position the system in a wellventilated, climate-controlled environment.
The maximum recommended ambient operating temperature (TMRA) for most server products is 35°C
(95°F). The temperature in the room where the rack is located must not exceed 35°C (95°F).
Setup 32
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of damage to the equipment when installing third-party options:
• Do not permit optional equipment to impede airflow around the server or to increase the
internal rack temperature beyond the maximum allowable limits.
• Do not exceed the manufacturer’s TMRA.
Power requirements
Installation of this equipment must comply with local and regional electrical regulations governing the
installation of information technology equipment by licensed electricians. This equipment is designed to
operate in installations covered by NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code) and NFPA-75, 1992
(code for Protection of Electronic Computer/Data Processing Equipment). For electrical power ratings on
options, refer to the product rating label or the user documentation supplied with that option.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, fire, or damage to the equipment, do not
overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. Consult the electrical
authority having jurisdiction over wiring and installation requirements of your facility.
CAUTION: Protect the server from power fluctuations and temporary interruptions with a
regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS). This device protects the hardware from
damage caused by power surges and voltage spikes and keeps the system in operation
during a power failure.
When installing more than one server, you may need to use additional power distribution devices to
safely provide power to all devices. Observe the following guidelines:
•
Balance the server power load between available AC supply branch circuits.
•
Do not allow the overall system AC current load to exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit AC
current rating.
•
Do not use common power outlet strips for this equipment.
•
Provide a separate electrical circuit for the server.
Electrical grounding requirements
The server must be grounded properly for proper operation and safety. In the United States, you must
install the equipment in accordance with NFPA 70, 1999 Edition (National Electric Code), Article 250,
as well as any local and regional building codes. In Canada, you must install the equipment in
accordance with Canadian Standards Association, CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code. In all other
countries, you must install the equipment in accordance with any regional or national electrical wiring
codes, such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Code 364, parts 1 through 7.
Furthermore, you must be sure that all power distribution devices used in the installation, such as branch
wiring and receptacles, are listed or certified grounding-type devices.
Because of the high ground-leakage currents associated with multiple servers connected to the same
power source, HP recommends the use of a PDU that is either permanently wired to the building’s branch
circuit or includes a nondetachable cord that is wired to an industrial-style plug. NEMA locking-style plugs
or those complying with IEC 60309 are considered suitable for this purpose. Using common power outlet
strips for the server is not recommended.
Setup 33

Memory options
Hardware options installation
44
IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to mix
these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
The memory subsystem in this server can support RDIMMs or UDIMMs. Both types are referred to as
DIMMs when the information applies to both types. When specified as RDIMM or UDIMM, the
information applies to that type only. All memory installed in the server must be the same type.
The server supports the following DIMM speeds:
•
Single- and dual-rank PC3-10600 (DDR-1333) DIMMs operating at 1333 and 1066 MHz
•
Quad-rank PC3-8500 (DDR-1067) DIMMs operating at 1066 MHz
Depending on the processor model, the number of DIMMs installed, and whether UDIMMs or RDIMMs
are installed, the memory clock speed may be reduced to 1066 or 800 MHz. For more information on
the effect of DIMM slot population, see "General DIMM slot population guidelines (on page 48)."
Memory subsystem architecture
The memory subsystem in this server is divided into channels. Each processor supports three channels,
and each channel supports three DIMM slots, as shown in the following table.

This multi-channel architecture provides enhanced performance in Advanced ECC mode. This architecture
also enables the Lockstep, Online Spare, and Mirrored Memory modes. This server supports both
Registered PC3 DIMMs (RDIMMs) and Unbuffered DIMMs (UDIMMs).
DIMM slots in this server are identified by number and by letter. Letters identify the slots to populate for
specific AMP modes. Slot numbers are reported by ROM messages during boot and for error reporting.
Single-, dual-, and quad-rank DIMMs
To understand and configure memory protection modes properly, an understanding of single-, dual-, and
quad-rank DIMMs is helpful. Some DIMM configuration requirements are based on these classifications.
A single-rank DIMM has one set of memory chips that is accessed while writing to or reading from the
memory. A dual-rank DIMM is similar to having two single-rank DIMMs on the same module, with only
one rank accessible at a time. A quad-rank DIMM is, effectively, two dual-rank DIMMs on the same
module. Only one rank is accessible at a time. The server memory control subsystem selects the proper
rank within the DIMM when writing to or reading from the DIMM.
Hardware options installation
45
Dual- and quad-rank DIMMs provide the greatest capacity with the existing memory technology. For
example, if current DRAM technology supports 2-GB single-rank DIMMs, a dual-rank DIMM would be 4GB, and a quad-rank DIMM would be 8-GB.
DIMM identification
IMPORTANT: This server does not support mixing RDIMMs and UDIMMs. Attempting to mix
these two types causes the server to halt during BIOS initialization.
The memory subsystem may be populated with either RDIMMs or UDIMMs, but mixing the two types is not
supported. To determine DIMM characteristics, use the label attached to the DIMM and the following
illustration and table.

Memory configurations
To optimize server availability, the server supports the following AMP modes:
Hardware options installation
46
•
Advanced ECC—provides the greatest memory capacity for a given DIMM size, while providing up
to 4-bit error correction. This mode is the default option for this server.
•
Mirrored Memory—provides maximum protection against failed DIMMs. Uncorrectable errors in one
channel are corrected by the mirror channel.
•
Lockstep—provides enhanced protection while making all installed memory available to the
operating system. The server can continue to function if a single- or mulit-bit memory failure within a
single DRAM device occurs.
Advanced Memory Protection options are configured in RBSU. If the requested AMP mode is not
supported by the installed DIMM configuration, the server boots in Advanced ECC mode. For more
information, see "HP ROM-Based Setup Utility (on page 92)."
For the latest memory configuration information, see the QuickSpecs on the HP website
(http://www.hp.com).
RDIMM maximum memory configurations
The following table lists the maximum memory configurations possible with 16-GB RDIMMs.

192 GB
UDIMM maximum memory configurations
When using 2-GB single- or dual-rank UDIMMs, the server supports a maximum of 24 GB with one
processor and 48 GB with two processors.
Low voltage DIMMs
Low Voltage DDR3 DIMMs operate at a lower voltage (1.35V) than standard voltage DDR3 DIMMs
(1.5V), and therefore consume less power. However, LVDIMMs are configured to operated at standard
voltage levels (1.5V) under the following conditions:
•
If LVDIMMs are mixed with standard DDR3 DIMMs on the same server, the LVDIMMs operate at
1.5V.
•
If there are two dual-rank LVDIMMs per channel on any populated memory channel in the system
running at 1333 MHz, the LVDIMMs operate at 1.5V.
This setting preserves maximum memory subsystem performance. To have DIMMs operate at 1.35V,
configure the Maximum Memory Bus Frequency option in the ROM-Based Setup Utility to 1066
MHz.
•
If there is one quad-rank LVDIMM per channel on any populated memory channel in the system
running at 1066 MHz, the LVDIMMs operate at 1.5V.
This setting preserves maximum memory subsystem performance. To have DIMMs operate at 1.35V,
configure the Maximum Memory Bus Frequency option in the ROM-Based Setup Utility to 800 MHz.
LVDIMMs are only supported for use with the Intel® Xeon® 5600 series of processors.
Hardware options installation
47
Advanced ECC memory configuration
Advanced ECC memory is the default memory protection mode for this server. Standard ECC can correct
single-bit memory errors and detect multi-bit memory errors. When multi-bit errors are detected using
Standard ECC, the error is signaled to the server and causes the server to halt.
Advanced ECC protects the server against some multi-bit memory errors. Advanced ECC can correct both
single-bit memory errors and 4-bit memory errors if all failed bits are on the same DRAM device on the
DIMM.
Advanced ECC provides additional protection over Standard ECC because it is possible to correct certain
memory errors that would otherwise be uncorrected and result in a server failure. The server provides
notification that correctable error events have exceeded a pre-defined threshold rate.
Mirrored memory configuration
Mirroring provides protection against uncorrected memory errors that would otherwise result in server
downtime. Mirroring is performed at the channel level. Channels 1 and 2 are used; channel 3 is not
populated.
Data is written to both memory channels. Data is read from one of the two memory channels. If an
uncorrectable error is detected in the active memory channel, data is retrieved from the mirror channel.
This channel becomes the new active channel, and the system disables the channel with the failed DIMM.
Lockstep memory configuration
Lockstep mode provides protection against multi-bit memory errors that occur on the same DRAM device.
Lockstep mode can correct any single DRAM device failure on x4 and x8 DIMM types. The DIMMs in
each channel must have identical HP part numbers.
Lockstep mode uses channel 1 and channel 2. Channel 3 is not populated. Because channel 3 cannot be
populated when using Lockstep mode, the maximum memory capacity is lower than Advanced ECC
mode. Memory performance with Advanced ECC is also slightly higher.
Online Spare memory configuration
Online spare memory provides protection against degraded DIMMs by reducing the likelihood of
uncorrected memory errors. This protection is available without any operating system support.
Online spare memory protection dedicates one rank of each memory channel for use as spare memory.
The remaining ranks are available for OS and application use. If correctable memory errors occur at a
rate higher than a specific threshold on any of the non-spare ranks, the server automatically copies the
memory contents of the degraded rank to the online spare rank. The server then deactivates the failing
rank and automatically switches over to the online spare rank.
General DIMM slot population guidelines
Observe the following guidelines for all AMP modes:
•

Automatic Server Recovery
ASR is a feature that causes the system to restart when a catastrophic operating system error occurs, such
as a blue screen, ABEND, or panic. A system fail-safe timer, the ASR timer, starts when the System
Management driver, also known as the Health Driver, is loaded. When the operating system is
functioning properly, the system periodically resets the timer. However, when the operating system fails,
the timer expires and restarts the server.
ASR increases server availability by restarting the server within a specified time after a system hang or
shutdown. At the same time, the HP SIM console notifies you by sending a message to a designated
pager number that ASR has restarted the system. You can disable ASR from the HP SIM console or
through RBSU.

method of migrating existing servers and their content to the latest server technologies.
SMP automates the migration of the operating system, applications, and data from one server to another
without errors, eliminating the need for manual redeployment of these elements on the new server. During
the migration process, the software automatically loads new drivers, required for boot, on the destination
server. The wizard-based user interface simplifies the migration process and requires little experience or
training.
For more information about the SMP, see the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/migrate).
Redundant ROM support
The server enables you to upgrade or configure the ROM safely with redundant ROM support. The server
has a 8-MB ROM that acts as two, separate 4-MB ROMs. In the standard implementation, one side of the
ROM contains the current ROM program version, while the other side of the ROM contains a backup
version.
NOTE: The server ships with the same version programmed on each side of the ROM.
Safety and security benefits
When you flash the system ROM, ROMPaq writes over the backup ROM and saves the current ROM as a
backup, enabling you to switch easily to the alternate ROM version if the new ROM becomes corrupted
for any reason. This feature protects the existing ROM version, even if you experience a power failure
while flashing the ROM.

Electrostatic discharge
Preventing electrostatic discharge
To prevent damaging the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting up the
system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage
system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the
device.
To prevent electrostatic damage:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
Grounding methods to prevent electrostatic
discharge
Several methods are used for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when handling or
installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer chassis. Wrist
straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ±10 percent resistance in the ground cords.
To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet
when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized reseller
install the part.
For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact an authorized
reseller.

Customer Self Repair
HP products are designed with many Customer Self Repair (CSR) parts to minimize repair time and allow
for greater flexibility in performing defective parts replacement. If during the diagnosis period HP (or HP
service providers or service partners) identifies that the repair can be accomplished by the use of a CSR
part, HP will ship that part directly to you for replacement. There are two categories of CSR parts:
•
Mandatory—Parts for which customer self repair is mandatory. If you request HP to replace these
parts, you will be charged for the travel and labor costs of this service.
Technical support
130
•
Optional—Parts for which customer self repair is optional. These parts are also designed for
customer self repair. If, however, you require that HP replace them for you, there may or may not be
additional charges, depending on the type of warranty service designated for your product.
NOTE: Some HP parts are not designed for customer self repair. In order to satisfy the customer warranty,
HP requires that an authorized service provider replace the part. These parts are identified as "No" in the
Illustrated Parts Catalog.
Based on availability and where geography permits, CSR parts will be shipped for next business day
delivery. Same day or four-hour delivery may be offered at an additional charge where geography
permits. If assistance is required, you can call the HP Technical Support Center and a technician will help
you over the telephone. HP specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CSR part whether a
defective part must be returned to HP. In cases where it is required to return the defective part to HP, you
must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally five (5) business days.
The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material.
Failure to return the defective part may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self
repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used.
For more information about HP's Customer Self Repair program, contact your local service provider. For
the North American program, refer to the HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Réparation par le client (CSR)
Les produits HP comportent de nombreuses pièces CSR (Customer Self Repair = réparation par le client)
afin de minimiser les délais de réparation et faciliter le remplacement des pièces défectueuses. Si pendant
la période de diagnostic, HP (ou ses partenaires ou mainteneurs agréés) détermine que la réparation peut
être effectuée à l'aide d'une pièce CSR, HP vous l'envoie directement. Il existe deux catégories de pièces
CSR:
Obligatoire - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est obligatoire. Si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, les coûts de déplacement et main d'œuvre du service vous seront facturés.
Facultatif - Pièces pour lesquelles la réparation par le client est facultative. Ces pièces sont également
conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la réparation. Toutefois, si vous demandez à HP de
remplacer ces pièces, l'intervention peut ou non vous être facturée, selon le type de garantie applicable à
votre produit.
REMARQUE: Certaines pièces HP ne sont pas conçues pour permettre au client d'effectuer lui-même la
réparation. Pour que la garantie puisse s'appliquer, HP exige que le remplacement de la pièce soit
effectué par un Mainteneur Agréé. Ces pièces sont identifiées par la mention "Non" dans le Catalogue
illustré.
Les pièces CSR sont livrées le jour ouvré suivant, dans la limite des stocks disponibles et selon votre
situation géographique. Si votre situation géographique le permet et que vous demandez une livraison le
jour même ou dans les 4 heures, celle-ci vous sera facturée. Pour bénéficier d'une assistance
téléphonique, appelez le Centre d'assistance technique HP. Dans les documents envoyés avec la pièce de
rechange CSR, HP précise s'il est nécessaire de lui retourner la pièce défectueuse. Si c'est le cas, vous
devez le faire dans le délai indiqué, généralement cinq (5) jours ouvrés. La pièce et sa documentation
doivent être retournées dans l'emballage fourni. Si vous ne retournez pas la pièce défectueuse, HP se
réserve le droit de vous facturer les coûts de remplacement. Dans le cas d'une pièce CSR, HP supporte
l'ensemble des frais d'expédition et de retour, et détermine la société de courses ou le transporteur à
utiliser.

Riparazione da parte del cliente
Per abbreviare i tempi di riparazione e garantire una maggiore flessibilità nella sostituzione di parti
difettose, i prodotti HP sono realizzati con numerosi componenti che possono essere riparati direttamente
dal cliente (CSR, Customer Self Repair). Se in fase di diagnostica HP (o un centro di servizi o di
assistenza HP) identifica il guasto come riparabile mediante un ricambio CSR, HP lo spedirà direttamente
al cliente per la sostituzione. Vi sono due categorie di parti CSR:
Obbligatorie – Parti che devono essere necessariamente riparate dal cliente. Se il cliente ne affida la
riparazione ad HP, deve sostenere le spese di spedizione e di manodopera per il servizio.
Opzionali – Parti la cui riparazione da parte del cliente è facoltativa. Si tratta comunque di componenti
progettati per questo scopo. Se tuttavia il cliente ne richiede la sostituzione ad HP, potrebbe dover
sostenere spese addizionali a seconda del tipo di garanzia previsto per il prodotto.
NOTA: alcuni componenti HP non sono progettati per la riparazione da parte del cliente. Per rispettare
la garanzia, HP richiede che queste parti siano sostituite da un centro di assistenza autorizzato. Tali parti
sono identificate da un "No" nel Catalogo illustrato dei componenti.
In base alla disponibilità e alla località geografica, le parti CSR vengono spedite con consegna entro il
giorno lavorativo seguente. La consegna nel giorno stesso o entro quattro ore è offerta con un
supplemento di costo solo in alcune zone. In caso di necessità si può richiedere l'assistenza telefonica di
un addetto del centro di supporto tecnico HP. Nel materiale fornito con una parte di ricambio CSR, HP
specifica se il cliente deve restituire dei componenti. Qualora sia richiesta la resa ad HP del componente
difettoso, lo si deve spedire ad HP entro un determinato periodo di tempo, generalmente cinque (5) giorni
lavorativi. Il componente difettoso deve essere restituito con la documentazione associata nell'imballo di
spedizione fornito. La mancata restituzione del componente può comportare la fatturazione del ricambio
da parte di HP. Nel caso di riparazione da parte del cliente, HP sostiene tutte le spese di spedizione e
resa e sceglie il corriere/vettore da utilizzare.
Per ulteriori informazioni sul programma CSR di HP contattare il centro di assistenza di zona. Per il
programma in Nord America fare riferimento al sito Web HP (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Customer Self Repair
HP Produkte enthalten viele CSR-Teile (Customer Self Repair), um Reparaturzeiten zu minimieren und
höhere Flexibilität beim Austausch defekter Bauteile zu ermöglichen. Wenn HP (oder ein HP
Servicepartner) bei der Diagnose feststellt, dass das Produkt mithilfe eines CSR-Teils repariert werden
kann, sendet Ihnen HP dieses Bauteil zum Austausch direkt zu. CSR-Teile werden in zwei Kategorien
unterteilt:
Zwingend – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren zwingend vorgegeben ist. Wenn Sie den
Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen, werden Ihnen die Anfahrt- und Arbeitskosten für diesen
Service berechnet.
Optional – Teile, für die das Customer Self Repair-Verfahren optional ist. Diese Teile sind auch für
Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Wenn Sie jedoch den Austausch dieser Teile von HP vornehmen lassen
möchten, können bei diesem Service je nach den für Ihr Produkt vorgesehenen Garantiebedingungen
zusätzliche Kosten anfallen.
Technical support
132
HINWEIS: Einige Teile sind nicht für Customer Self Repair ausgelegt. Um den Garantieanspruch des
Kunden zu erfüllen, muss das Teil von einem HP Servicepartner ersetzt werden. Im illustrierten Teilekatalog
sind diese Teile mit „No“ bzw. „Nein“ gekennzeichnet.
CSR-Teile werden abhängig von der Verfügbarkeit und vom Lieferziel am folgenden Geschäftstag
geliefert. Für bestimmte Standorte ist eine Lieferung am selben Tag oder innerhalb von vier Stunden gegen
einen Aufpreis verfügbar. Wenn Sie Hilfe benötigen, können Sie das HP technische Support Center
anrufen und sich von einem Mitarbeiter per Telefon helfen lassen. Den Materialien, die mit einem CSRErsatzteil geliefert werden, können Sie entnehmen, ob das defekte Teil an HP zurückgeschickt werden
muss. Wenn es erforderlich ist, das defekte Teil an HP zurückzuschicken, müssen Sie dies innerhalb eines
vorgegebenen Zeitraums tun, in der Regel innerhalb von fünf (5) Geschäftstagen. Das defekte Teil muss
mit der zugehörigen Dokumentation in der Verpackung zurückgeschickt werden, die im Lieferumfang
enthalten ist. Wenn Sie das defekte Teil nicht zurückschicken, kann HP Ihnen das Ersatzteil in Rechnung
stellen. Im Falle von Customer Self Repair kommt HP für alle Kosten für die Lieferung und Rücksendung auf
und bestimmt den Kurier-/Frachtdienst.
Weitere Informationen über das HP Customer Self Repair Programm erhalten Sie von Ihrem Servicepartner
vor Ort. Informationen über das CSR-Programm in Nordamerika finden Sie auf der HP Website unter
(http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparaciones del propio cliente
Los productos de HP incluyen muchos componentes que el propio usuario puede reemplazar (Customer
Self Repair, CSR) para minimizar el tiempo de reparación y ofrecer una mayor flexibilidad a la hora de
realizar sustituciones de componentes defectuosos. Si, durante la fase de diagnóstico, HP (o los
proveedores o socios de servicio de HP) identifica que una reparación puede llevarse a cabo mediante el
uso de un componente CSR, HP le enviará dicho componente directamente para que realice su
sustitución. Los componentes CSR se clasifican en dos categorías:
•
Obligatorio: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es obligatoria. Si solicita
a HP que realice la sustitución de estos componentes, tendrá que hacerse cargo de los gastos de
desplazamiento y de mano de obra de dicho servicio.
•
Opcional: componentes para los que la reparación por parte del usuario es opcional. Estos
componentes también están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Sin embargo,
si precisa que HP realice su sustitución, puede o no conllevar costes adicionales, dependiendo del
tipo de servicio de garantía correspondiente al producto.
NOTA: Algunos componentes no están diseñados para que puedan ser reparados por el usuario. Para
que el usuario haga valer su garantía, HP pone como condición que un proveedor de servicios
autorizado realice la sustitución de estos componentes. Dichos componentes se identifican con la palabra
"No" en el catálogo ilustrado de componentes.
Según la disponibilidad y la situación geográfica, los componentes CSR se enviarán para que lleguen a
su destino al siguiente día laborable. Si la situación geográfica lo permite, se puede solicitar la entrega
en el mismo día o en cuatro horas con un coste adicional. Si precisa asistencia técnica, puede llamar al
Centro de asistencia técnica de HP y recibirá ayuda telefónica por parte de un técnico. Con el envío de
materiales para la sustitución de componentes CSR, HP especificará si los componentes defectuosos
deberán devolverse a HP. En aquellos casos en los que sea necesario devolver algún componente a HP,
deberá hacerlo en el periodo de tiempo especificado, normalmente cinco días laborables. Los
componentes defectuosos deberán devolverse con toda la documentación relacionada y con el embalaje
de envío. Si no enviara el componente defectuoso requerido, HP podrá cobrarle por el de sustitución. En

Customer Self Repair
Veel onderdelen in HP producten zijn door de klant zelf te repareren, waardoor de reparatieduur tot een
minimum beperkt kan blijven en de flexibiliteit in het vervangen van defecte onderdelen groter is. Deze
onderdelen worden CSR-onderdelen (Customer Self Repair) genoemd. Als HP (of een HP Service Partner)
bij de diagnose vaststelt dat de reparatie kan worden uitgevoerd met een CSR-onderdeel, verzendt HP
dat onderdeel rechtstreeks naar u, zodat u het defecte onderdeel daarmee kunt vervangen. Er zijn twee
categorieën CSR-onderdelen:
Verplicht: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant verplicht is. Als u HP verzoekt deze onderdelen
voor u te vervangen, worden u voor deze service reiskosten en arbeidsloon in rekening gebracht.
Optioneel: Onderdelen waarvoor reparatie door de klant optioneel is. Ook deze onderdelen zijn
ontworpen voor reparatie door de klant. Als u echter HP verzoekt deze onderdelen voor u te vervangen,
kunnen daarvoor extra kosten in rekening worden gebracht, afhankelijk van het type garantieservice voor
het product.
OPMERKING: Sommige HP onderdelen zijn niet ontwikkeld voor reparatie door de klant. In verband met
de garantievoorwaarden moet het onderdeel door een geautoriseerde Service Partner worden vervangen.
Deze onderdelen worden in de geïllustreerde onderdelencatalogus aangemerkt met "Nee".
Afhankelijk van de leverbaarheid en de locatie worden CSR-onderdelen verzonden voor levering op de
eerstvolgende werkdag. Levering op dezelfde dag of binnen vier uur kan tegen meerkosten worden
aangeboden, indien dit mogelijk is gezien de locatie. Indien assistentie gewenst is, belt u een HP Service
Partner om via de telefoon technische ondersteuning te ontvangen. HP vermeldt in de documentatie bij het
vervangende CSR-onderdeel of het defecte onderdeel aan HP moet worden geretourneerd. Als het defecte
onderdeel aan HP moet worden teruggezonden, moet u het defecte onderdeel binnen een bepaalde
periode, gewoonlijk vijf (5) werkdagen, retourneren aan HP. Het defecte onderdeel moet met de
bijbehorende documentatie worden geretourneerd in het meegeleverde verpakkingsmateriaal. Als u het
defecte onderdeel niet terugzendt, kan HP u voor het vervangende onderdeel kosten in rekening brengen.
Bij reparatie door de klant betaalt HP alle verzendkosten voor het vervangende en geretourneerde
onderdeel en kiest HP zelf welke koerier/transportonderneming hiervoor wordt gebruikt.
Neem contact op met een Service Partner voor meer informatie over het Customer Self Repair programma
van HP. Informatie over Service Partners vindt u op de HP website (http://www.hp.com/go/selfrepair).
Reparo feito pelo cliente
Os produtos da HP são projetados com muitas peças para reparo feito pelo cliente (CSR) de modo a
minimizar o tempo de reparo e permitir maior flexibilidade na substituição de peças com defeito. Se,
durante o período de diagnóstico, a HP (ou fornecedores/parceiros de serviço da HP) concluir que o
reparo pode ser efetuado pelo uso de uma peça CSR, a peça de reposição será enviada diretamente ao
cliente. Existem duas categorias de peças CSR:
Obrigatória – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é obrigatório. Se desejar que a HP substitua essas
peças, serão cobradas as despesas de transporte e mão-de-obra do serviço.
Technical support
134
Opcional – Peças cujo reparo feito pelo cliente é opcional. Essas peças também são projetadas para o
reparo feito pelo cliente. No entanto, se desejar que a HP as substitua, pode haver ou não a cobrança
de taxa adicional, dependendo do tipo de serviço de garantia destinado ao produto.
OBSERVAÇÃO: Algumas peças da HP não são projetadas para o reparo feito pelo cliente. A fim de
cumprir a garantia do cliente, a HP exige que um técnico autorizado substitua a peça. Essas peças estão
identificadas com a marca "No" (Não), no catálogo de peças ilustrado.
Conforme a disponibilidade e o local geográfico, as peças CSR serão enviadas no primeiro dia útil após
o pedido. Onde as condições geográficas permitirem, a entrega no mesmo dia ou em quatro horas pode
ser feita mediante uma taxa adicional. Se precisar de auxílio, entre em contato com o Centro de suporte
técnico da HP para que um técnico o ajude por telefone. A HP especifica nos materiais fornecidos com a
peça CSR de reposição se a peça com defeito deve ser devolvida à HP. Nos casos em que isso for
necessário, é preciso enviar a peça com defeito à HP dentro do período determinado, normalmente
cinco (5) dias úteis. A peça com defeito deve ser enviada com a documentação correspondente no
material de transporte fornecido. Caso não o faça, a HP poderá cobrar a reposição. Para as peças de
reparo feito pelo cliente, a HP paga todas as despesas de transporte e de devolução da peça e
determina a transportadora/serviço postal a ser utilizado.
