What your server offers
The design of your server takes advantage of advancements in symmetric
multiprocessing (SMP), data storage, disk-array technologies, and memory
management. Your server combines:
v IBM X-Architecture technology
IBM X-Architecture features leverage proven innovative IBM technologies to build
the most powerful, scalable, reliable Intel-processor-based servers in the world.
X-Architecture technology includes features such
as Light Path Diagnostics™,
®
™
Chipkill memory, Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA), and the Advanced System
Management processor.
v Impressive performance using SMP
Your server supports up to two Intel Xeon microprocessors. Your server comes
with at least one microprocessor installed; you can install an additional
microprocessor to enhance performance and provide SMP capability.
v Large data-storage and hot-swap capabilities
All models of the server support up to six 25.4 mm (1-inch) slim-high, 3.5-inch
hot-swap hard disk drives in the hot-swap bays. This hot-swap feature enables
you to add, remove, or replace hard disk drives without turning off the server.
v Redundant cooling and power capabilities
The server supports up to eight hot-swap fans. Eight fans provide redundant
cooling. The hot-swap capabilities of the fans in your server enable continued
operation if one of the fans fails. You can also replace a failing fan without
turning off the server.
The server supports up to two 350-watt power supplies, which ensure
redundancy and hot-swap capability for a typical configuration.
v Large system memory
Your server supports up to 4 GB of system memory. The memory controller
provides error correcting code (ECC) support for up to four industry-standard,
100 MHz, 2.5 V, 184-pin, double-data rate (DDR), PC2100 CL2.5 (downward
compatible with PC1600 CL2), registered, synchronous dynamic random-access
memory (SDRAM) dual inline memory modules (DIMMs). The memory controller
also provides Chipkill™ memory protection if all DIMMs are of the type x4.
Chipkill memory protection is a technology that protects the system from a single
chip failure on a DIMM.
v System-management capabilities
Your server comes with an integrated system management processor (ISMP) and
support for the Remote Supervisor Adapter. The ISMP with the
system-management software that is provided with your server, enables you to
manage the functions of the server locally and remotely. The ISMP also provides
system monitoring, event recording, and dial-out alert capability.
Note: The ISMP is sometimes referred to as the service processor.
The optional IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter works with the integrated service
processor to give you a World Wide Web interface to the system-management
functions. You can manage your server over the Internet or intranet.
See the documentation provided with your system-management software for
more information.
4
IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s Guide
v Integrated network environment support
Your server comes with an Ethernet controller on the system board. This
Ethernet controller has an interface for connecting to 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or
1000-Mbps networks. The server automatically selects between 10BASE-T,
100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T. The controller provides full-duplex (FDX)
capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the
Ethernet local area network (LAN).
v Redundant connection
The addition of an optional network interface card (NIC) provides a failover
capability to a redundant Ethernet connection. If a problem occurs with the
primary Ethernet connection, all Ethernet traffic associated with this primary
connection is automatically switched to the redundant NIC. If the appropriate
device drivers are installed, this switching occurs without data loss and without
user intervention.
v IBM ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD
The ServerGuide™ Setup and Installation CD that is included with your server
provides programs to help you set up your server and install the network
operating system (NOS). The ServerGuide program detects the hardware options
that are installed and provides the correct configuration programs and device
drivers.
For more information about the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, see
“Using the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD” on page 11.
Reliability, availability, and serviceability
Three of the most important features in server design are reliability, availability, and

IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s Guide
Setup and configuration overview
When you use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, you do not need setup
diskettes. You can use the CD to configure any supported IBM server model. The
ServerGuide program checks your system BIOS code, service processors, and
other system hardware to determine if system updates are available. The setup
program provides a list of tasks that are required to set up your server model. On
SCSI RAID servers, you can run the SCSI RAID configuration program to create
logical drives.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide Program.
When you start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD, the program performs
the following tasks:
v The ServerGuide program prompts you for your language, country, and keyboard
layout. (This information is stored and later passed to the NOS installation
program.)
v The ServerGuide program displays choices for running the configuration
programs. For example:
– The Express Configuration method runs the required programs for your
server, based on the hardware that is detected.
– The Custom Configuration method displays all programs that are available for
your server, and you decide which programs to run.
– The Replicated Configuration method provides the option of duplicating your
setup selections to other servers that are the same model.
v If you select the Custom Configuration method, the following features are
optional. If you select the Express Configuration method, some or all of these
features are run, depending on the hardware that is detected:
– The Set Date and Time feature is provided so that you do not have to use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to access these settings.
– The Clear Hard Disks feature is provided so you can delete all partitions on all
hard disk drives.
– The ServerGuide program checks the server BIOS code and microcode
(firmware) levels for supported options and then checks the CD for a newer
level. The CD content might be newer than the BIOS code and firmware level.
The ServerGuide program can perform a flash update of the BIOS code and
supported microcode (firmware) options without using diskettes.
– The SCSI RAID configuration program starts, leading you through the entire
configuration process.
– The ServerGuide program creates a System Partition on the default drive.
v The ServerGuide program displays a confirmation summary, so that you will
know when you have completed all the required tasks. Then, you are ready to
install your NOS.
Notes:
1. Plug and Play adapters are configured automatically. Non-Plug and Play
adapters or non-IBM adapters might require switch settings, additional device
drivers, and installation after the NOS is installed. See the documentation that
comes with the adapter.
2. Diagnostics for your server come in BIOS code or on a separate diagnostics
CD.
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
13
System Partition
The ServerGuide program creates a 50 MB System Partition on the default drive.
The System Partition contains server-specific utility programs such as service
processor disk operating system (DOS) utilities, system diagnostics, flash BIOS
updates, and other programs. Programs in the System Partition vary by server
model, and not all server models run utility programs from the System Partition. To
determine which ones do, start the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD and view
the online overview.
After setup is complete, you can access programs in the System Partition by
restarting the server and pressing Alt+F1 when the prompt is displayed. The
System Partition menu displays the programs that are available on your server
model.
Typical NOS installation
You can use the ServerGuide program to shorten your installation time. The
ServerGuide program provides the device drivers that are required for your
hardware and for the NOS that you are installing. This section describes a typical
ServerGuide NOS installation.
Note: Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the
ServerGuide Program.
1. After you have completed the setup process, the NOS installation program
starts. (You will need your NOS CD to complete the installation.)
2. The ServerGuide program stores information about the server model, service
processor, hard disk drive controllers, and network adapters. Then, the program
checks the CD for newer device drivers. This information is stored and then
passed to the NOS installation program.
3. With some NOS installations, you can create a NOS-replication diskette for
setting up additional servers. This diskette contains the Internet protocol (IP)
address, server name, and other selections.
4. The ServerGuide program presents NOS partition options that are based on
your NOS selection and the installed hard disk drives.
5. If you are installing the NOS from diskette, the ServerGuide program lists the
diskettes that you must create and the optional diskettes that you might want to
create. The diskettes that you can create are the device-driver diskettes for the
installed adapters or controllers.
6. The ServerGuide program prompts you to insert your NOS CD and restart the
server. At this point, the installation program for the NOS takes control to
complete the installation.
Setting up or updating multiple servers
You can use the ServerGuide program to create diskettes that help you set up or
update multiple servers. You can modify information on the diskettes as you use
them to set up or update other servers.
Note: Availability and function can vary by server model and by the hardware that
is installed.
You can create a setup-replication diskette, which contains your hardware
configuration selections. Use this diskette to replicate selections to other servers
that are of the same model.
14
IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s Guide
You can create a NOS-replication diskette, which contains information that you need
to complete multiple installations. Not all operating systems support NOS-replication
diskettes.

You can use the ServeRAID Manager program, provided on the IBM ServeRAID
Support CD, to:
v Configure a redundant array of independent disks (RAID)
v Restore a SCSI hard disk drive to factory-default settings, erasing all data
v View your RAID configuration and associated devices
v Monitor operation of your RAID controllers
The ServeRAID Manager program operates in two ways:
v Startable CD mode
v As an installed software program
The following sections provide instructions for running ServeRAID Manager in
Startable CD mode to configure your integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities and perform an initial RAID configuration on your server. See the
ServeRAID documentation on the IBM ServeRAID Support CD for additional
information about RAID technology and instructions for using ServeRAID Manager
to configure your integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities.
Notes:
1. The integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities in your server supports
RAID level 1 operation.
2. If your server has a ServeRAID-5i controller installed, you can use ServeRAID
Manager to configure the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities for
additional RAID levels.
Using ServeRAID Manager in Startable CD mode
The information in this section focuses on using the ServeRAID Manager program
in Startable CD mode to configure your controller. For information about installing
ServeRAID Manager, see the documentation on the IBM ServeRAID Support CD.
When you run the ServeRAID Manager program from the startable IBM ServeRAID
Support CD, you are using Startable CD mode, in which you can configure your
controller before you install your operating system.
To run the ServeRAID Manager program in Startable CD mode, turn on the server;
then, insert the IBM ServeRAID Support CD into the CD-ROM drive. If the
ServeRAID Manager program detects an unconfigured controller and ready drives,
the program automatically starts the Configuration wizard, and a window similar to
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
21
the following opens.
Configuring the controller
You can use the Configuration wizard to configure your controller. The Configuration
wizard provides two configuration options: Express and Custom. Express
configuration automatically configures your controller, and you can use Custom
configuration to configure your controller manually.
Note: If the RAID controller has two channels, it will appear in the ServeRAID
Manager tree as two controller objects. However, you can configure only one
array and one RAID level-1 logical drive.
Using Express configuration: Express configuration automatically configures
your controller, creates an array by grouping together the first two physical drives
that appear in the ServeRAID Manager tree, and it creates a RAID level-1 logical
drive.
Complete the following steps to use Express configuration:
1. In the ServeRAID Manager tree, click the controller.
2. Click Express configuration.
3. Click Next. The “Configuration summary” window opens.

5. Highlight the Format item; then, press Enter to start.
Updating the integrated system management firmware
To update the integrated system management (ISM) firmware for the integrated
system management processor (ISMP), you must download the image of the
Integrated System Management Firmware Update Utility program for your server
from the IBM Support Web site at http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/ on the World
Wide Web. You can then run the Integrated System Management Firmware Update
Utility program to create an Integrated System Management Firmware Update Utility
diskette that is used to update the ISM firmware. This diskette updates the ISM
firmware only and does not affect any device drivers.
Complete the following steps to update the ISMP firmware:
1. Turn off your server.
2. Insert the diskette into the diskette drive.
3. Turn on your server. If your server does not start from the diskette drive, use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to configure the diskette drive as a startup
device. See “Using the Configuration/Setup Utility program” on page 15. Then,
go back and start with step 1
4. From the main menu, select Update System Management Firmware and
press Enter.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.
Configuring the Ethernet controller
The server comes with an integrated dual-port Ethernet controller. This controller
provides an interface for connecting to 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, and 1000-Mbps
networks and provides full-duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous
transmission and reception of data on the Ethernet local area network (LAN).
To use the Ethernet controller, connect a Category 5 or higher unshielded
twisted-pair (UTP) cable to either of the two Ethernet ports on the rear panel of the
server.
The Ethernet connectors on the rear panel each have two LEDs. When the
Ethernet link-status LED is on, there is an active connection on the Ethernet port.
When the Ethernet transmit/receive TX/RX LED is on, there is activity between the
server and the network. For a description of the server Ethernet ports, see the
Option Installation Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
When you connect the server to the network, the Ethernet controller automatically
detects the data-transfer rate (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000Mbps) on the network
28
IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s Guide
and sets the controller to operate at the appropriate rate. In addition, if the Ethernet
port that the server is connected to supports auto-negotiation, the Ethernet
controller will set the appropriate duplex state. That is, the Ethernet controller will
adjust to the network data rate, whether the data rate is standard Ethernet
(10BASE-T), Fast Ethernet (100BASE-TX), Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T), half
duplex (HDX), or full duplex (FDX). The controller supports half-duplex (HDX) and
full-duplex (FDX) modes at all speeds.
For information on configuring your Ethernet controller, see the Intel Ethernet
Software CD that comes with your server. For updated information on configuring
your Ethernet controller, go to the IBM Support Web site at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support and navigate to the area for your specific server
type. From this area you can download documentation, the most current device
drivers for your server, and software that supports advanced networking functions.
The Ethernet controller is a PCI Plug and Play device. You do not need to set any
jumpers or configure the controller for the operating system before you use the
controller. However, you must install a device driver to enable the operating system
to access the controller. The device driver is provided on the ServerGuide Setup
and Installation™ CD.
High-performance Ethernet modes
If you install an optional Ethernet adapter, or use both Ethernet ports on your
server, you can use optional modes, such as teaming, priority packets, and virtual
LANs, which provide higher performance and throughput for the server. These
modes apply to the integrated Ethernet controller and to the controllers on the
supported Ethernet adapters.
Teaming mode
Teaming options increase throughput and fault tolerance when running with
Windows NT, Windows 2000, or NetWare 4.1x or later.
v Adapter fault tolerance (AFT) provides automatic redundancy for the Ethernet
controller. If the primary controller fails, the optional Ethernet adapter takes over.
Adapter fault tolerance supports from 2 to 4 controllers per team.
v Adaptive load balancing (ALB) enables you to balance the transmission data
flow among 2 to 4 Ethernet controllers. ALB also includes the AFT option. You
can use ALB with any 100BASE-TX or 1000BASE-T switch.
v Cisco Fast EtherChannel (FEC) creates a team of 2 to 4 Ethernet controllers to
increase transmission and reception throughput. FEC also includes the AFT
option. You can only use FEC with a switch that has FEC capability.
Priority Packet mode
Priority Packet is a traffic-prioritization utility that you can use to set up filters to
process high-priority traffic before normal traffic. You can send information from
critical nodes or applications with an indicated priority. Because you set this priority
at the host or entry point of the network, the network devices can base forwarding
decisions on priority information defined in the packet.
Priority Packet information is available on the IBM® Networking Web site at
http://www.ibm.com/networking/support.
Priority Packet prioritizes traffic based on priority filters. These are parameters you
assign to outgoing (transmit) packets. Using the Priority Filter wizard, you can set
up predefined or custom priority filters based on a node (MAC) address, Ethernet
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
29
type, or by various properties of the protocol and port. Priority Packet provides two
different methods for prioritizing traffic: IEEE 802.1p tagging and High Priority
Queue.
IEEE 802.1p is an IEEE standard for tagging, or adding additional bytes of
information to packets with different priority levels. Packets are tagged with 4
additional bytes, which increase the packet size and indicate a priority level. When
you send these packets out on the network, the higher priority packets are
transferred first. Priority Packet tagging (also known as Traffic Class Expediting)
enables the Ethernet controller to work with other elements of the network (such as
switches and routers) to deliver priority packets first. You can assign specific priority
levels from 0 (low) to 7 (high).
You can assign values to packets based on their priorities when you use the IEEE
802.1p standard for packet tagging. This method requires a network infrastructure
that supports packet tagging. The routing devices receiving and transferring these
packets on the network must support 802.1p for tagging to be effective.
After you set up the priority filter in Priority Packet, you must start PROSet, click the
Advanced tab, and select QoS Packet Tagging from the list.
Note: IEEE 802.1p tagging increases the size of the packets it tags. Some hubs
and switches will not recognize the larger packets and will drop them. Check
the hub or switch documentation to see if they support 802.1p. (You can
configure the switch to strip the tags from the packets and send it on to the
next destination as normal traffic.) If these devices do not support 802.1p or
if you are not sure, use High Priority Queue (HPQ) to prioritize network
traffic.
The requirements for effectively using IEEE 802.1p tagging are:
v The other devices receiving and routing 802.1p tagged packets must support
802.1p.
v The adapters on these devices must support 802.1p. The Ethernet controller in
the server, all IBM 10/100 Ethernet Security Adapters, and IBM 10/100 Ethernet
Server Adapters support 802.1p.
v The adapter cannot be assigned to an adapter team.
v If you are setting up VLANs and packet tagging on the same adapter, you must
start PROSet, click the Advanced tab, and select QoS Packet Tagging from the
list.
If the network infrastructure devices do not support IEEE 802.1p or you are not
sure, you can still define filters and send packets as high priority. Although High
Priority Queue (HPQ) does not provide the precise priority levels of 802.1p tagging,
it does assign traffic as either high or low priority and sends high priority packets
first. Therefore, if there are multiple applications on a system sending packets, the
packets from the application with a filter are sent out first. HPQ does not change
network routing, nor does it add any information to the packets.
To assign HPQ, you can specify it using Priority Packet mode when you create or
assign a filter.
To effectively use HPQ, the adapter cannot be assigned to an adapter team.

IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s Guide
Virtual LAN mode
A virtual LAN (VLAN) is a logical grouping of network devices put together as a
LAN, regardless of their physical grouping or collision domains. Using VLANs
increases network performance and improves network security.
VLANs offer you the ability to group users and devices together into logical
workgroups. This can simplify network administration when connecting clients to
servers that are dispersed geographically across a building, campus, or enterprise
network.
Typically, VLANs are configured at the switch and any computer can be a member
of one VLAN per installed network adapter. The Ethernet controller supersedes this
by communicating directly with the switch, enabling multiple VLANs on a single
network adapter (up to 64 VLANs).
When you set up VLAN membership, the Ethernet controller must be attached to a
switch that has VLAN capability. You also need to use Windows 2000, Windows
NT® 4.0 or later, or Novell NetWare 4.1x or later.
Notes:
1. Windows NT versions prior to 4.0 do not support VLANs.
2. VLANs require Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3.0 and the network driver
interface specifications (NDIS) driver hotfix from Microsoft.
3. In Windows NT, VLANS cannot be implemented on controllers that have been
configured for teaming options. Netware can support teaming options and
VLANS on the same adapters.
Complete the following steps to join a VLAN from Windows NT 4.0:
1. Create a VLAN on the switch. Use the parameters you assign there to join the
VLAN from the server. See the switch documentation for more information.
2. Double-click the Start Proset icon in the Control Panel window.
3. On the Adapters page, right click on the adapter that you want to be on the
VLAN.
4. In IBMSet, click Add VLAN for the first adapter or click Join VLAN for
remaining adapters. Note that VLANs cannot be assigned to adapters that are
already defined to have an adapter teaming option.
5. Type the VLAN ID and VLAN name. The VLAN ID must match the VLAN ID of
the switch. The VLAN name is for information only and does not need to match
the name on the switch.
6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each VLAN you want the server to join. The
VLANs you add are listed on the Adapters page.
7. Click Close and restart the server.

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.

IBM xSeries 345 Type 8670: User’s 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 A. Warranty information
39
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.
