IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: Installation Guide
Chapter 2. Installing options
This chapter provides basic instructions for installing hardware options in your
server. These instructions are intended for users who are experienced with setting
up IBM server hardware. If you need more detailed instructions, see the Option
Installation Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Installation guidelines
Before you begin installing options in your server, read the following information:
v Read the safety information beginning on page v and the guidelines in “Handling
static-sensitive devices” on page 10. This information will help you work safely
with your server and options.
v Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for your server, monitor, and other devices that you will connect to the
server.
v Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
v Have a small flat-blade screwdriver available.
v You do not need to turn off the server to install or replace hot-swap power
supplies, hot-swap drives, or hot-plug Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices.
v The orange color on components and labels identifies hot-swap or hot-plug
components. You can install or remove hot-swap and hot-plug components while
the server is running, provided that the server is configured to support this
capability. See the instructions in this chapter for more information about
removing and installing hot-swap and hot-plug components.
v The blue color on components and labels identifies touch points, where you can
grip a component, move a latch, and so on.
v When you need to access the inside of the server to install options, you might
find it easier to lay the server on its side.
v For a list of supported options for your server, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/.
System reliability guidelines
To help ensure proper cooling and system reliability, make sure that:
v Each of the drive bays has a drive or a filler panel and electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC) shield installed in it.
v If the server has redundant power, each of the power-supply bays has a power
supply installed in it.
v There is adequate space around the server to allow the server cooling system to
work properly. Leave approximately 50 mm (2 in.) of open space around the front
and rear of the server. Do not place objects in front of the fans. For proper
cooling and airflow, replace the server cover before turning on the server.
Operating the server for extended periods of time (over 30 minutes) with the
server cover removed might damage server components.
When installing the server in a rack, 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 You have followed the cabling instructions that come with optional adapters.
v You have replaced a failed fan as soon as possible.
v You replace a hot-swap drive within 2 minutes of its removal.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2003
9
v You do not remove the air baffle when the server is operational. Operating the
server without the air baffle might cause the microprocessor to overheat.
v Microprocessor socket 2 always contains either a microprocessor baffle or a
microprocessor and heat sink.
Working inside the server with the power on
Your server supports hot-swap devices and is designed to operate safely while it is
turned on and the cover is removed. Follow these guidelines when you work inside
a server that is turned on:
v Avoid wearing 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 and pencils, that could fall
into the server as you lean over it.
v Avoid dropping any metallic objects, such as paper clips, hairpins, and screws,
into the server.
Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention: Static electricity can damage electronic devices, including your server.
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 circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.
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 the server without
setting down the device. If it is necessary to set down the device, put it back into
its static-protective package. Do not place the device on your server cover or on
a metal surface.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather. Heating reduces
indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

adapters in PCI slot 1 (PCI1) and PCI-X slots 2 through 5 (PCI2 through PCI5).
See “System-board option connectors” on page 6 for the locations of expansion
slots on the system board.
Adapter considerations
Before you install an adapter, review the following information:
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 Installation of an AGP video adapter in the AGP slot is not supported.
v You can install a only 32-bit adapter in the 32-bit PCI slot 1 and 64-bit adapters
in the 64-bit PCI-X slots 2 through 5.
v You can install full-length adapters in all five expansion slots. None of the
expansion slots are hot-plug.
v The 32-bit PCI slot 1 supports 5.0 V signaling PCI adapters; it does not support
3.3 V signaling adapters or 64-bit adapters.
v The 64-bit PCI-X slots 2 through 5 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 as follows:
– The 32-bit PCI slot 1 and mini-PCI slot 6 (video adapter) are on the 33 MHz
PCI bus.
14
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: Installation Guide
Note: Do not install any adapters other than the standard video adapter in
mini-PCI slot 6. Other adapter types are not supported.
– The 64-bit PCI-X slots 2 and 3 and the integrated Ethernet controller are on
the 100 MHz PCI-X bus, channel A.
– The 64-bit PCI-X slots 4 and 5 and the integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities are on the 100 MHz PCI bus, channel B. 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 slots 4
and 5 to 66 MHz.
v The optional IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter can be installed only in PCI slot 1.
Use the ribbon cable that comes with this adapter to connect it to the Remote
Supervisor Adapter connector (JMGT1) on the system board.
v The optional ServeRAID-5i controller can be installed only in PCI-X slot 4 and
must use the 3-U bracket that comes preinstalled on the controller.
v To provide failover protection, an optional Ethernet adapter can be installed only
in PCI-X slots 2 through 5.
v The server scans the AGP slot, mini-PCI slot 6, PCI expansion slot 1, and PCI-X
expansion slots 2 through 5 to assign system resources. Then, the server starts
the PCI devices in the following order, if you have not changed the default
startup sequence: AGP slot, mini-PCI slot 6, PCI expansion slot 1, system-board
integrated drive electronics (IDE) or SCSI devices (including optional
ServeRAID-5i controller), and then PCI-X expansion slots 2 through 5.
v For a list of supported options for your server, go to
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/ on the World Wide Web.
Installing an adapter
Note: 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 preinstalled on the controller. See the documentation that comes with
the ServeRAID-5i controller for additional information.
Complete the following steps to install an adapter in your server:
1. Review the “Installation guidelines” on page 9 and “Handling static-sensitive
devices” on page 10.
2. Remove the side cover (see “Removing the side cover” on page 11).
3. Determine which slot you will use for the adapter. Check the instructions that
come with the adapter for any requirements, restrictions, or cabling
instructions. It might be easier to route cables before you install the adapter.
4. Rotate the rear adapter-retention bracket to the open (unlocked) position and
remove it from the server. Rotate the front adapter-retention bracket to the
open position. If you are installing a smaller adapter, remove only the rear
adapter-retention bracket.
5. Remove the expansion-slot cover. From the rear of the server, press on the
slot cover. Grasp it and pull it out of the expansion slot. Store it in a safe place

6. Touch the static-protective package containing the drive to any unpainted metal
surface on the server; then, remove the drive from the package and place it on
a static-protective surface.
7. Set any jumpers or switches on the drive according to the documentation that
comes with the drive.
Note: You might find it easier to install the new drive into the appropriate
opening on the front, and then attach the cables.
8. If you are installing a 5.25-in. drive in bay 2, push the drive into the bay; then,
use the two screws to attach the drive to the drive cage. If you are installing a
3.5-in. drive in bay 2, you must attach the 5.25-in. conversion kit, supplied with
the option, to the 3.5-in. drive.
9. Determine whether the drive is an IDE or SCSI device; then, connect one end
of the appropriate signal cable into the back of the drive and make sure that
the other end of this cable is connected into the appropriate IDE or SCSI
connector on the system board.
v If you are installing a SCSI removable-media drive, use the one-drop SCSI
cable that comes with the drive and connect it to SCSI channel B (SCSI2).
See “Power and signal cables for internal drives” on page 25 for additional
information about cabling drives and “System-board internal connectors” on
page 7 for the location of IDE and SCSI connectors on the system board.
v If there are open connectors on the cables connecting an existing IDE drive,
this cable can be used to connect the new drive. The 4-connector SCSI
cable that comes with non-hot-swap model servers cannot be used to
connect a SCSI drive in bay 2.
10. Route the signal cable so that it does not block the airflow to the rear of the
drives or over the microprocessor and memory.

Installing a non-hot-swap hard disk drive
Some server models come with non-hot-swap hard disk drives. Non-hot swap hard
disk drives are in the drive cage in bays 4, 5, 6, and 7. The drive cage is behind the
front of the adapter-support bracket. Drives are installed starting at the bottom in
bay 7. Additional drives are then installed in bays 6, 5, and 4.
Notes:
1. You can install up to four non-hot-swap hard disk drives in your server. The
additional space in the drive cage above bay 4 is not designed to accommodate
any additional drives.
2. When installing non-hot-swap hard disk drives, you might find it easier to lay the
server on its side.
Complete the following steps to install a non-hot-swap hard disk drive in bay 4, 5, 6,
or 7:
1. Follow the instructions in “Preinstallation steps” on page 21.

IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: Installation Guide
Power and signal cables for internal drives
Your server uses cables to connect IDE and SCSI devices to the power supply and
to the system board. (See “System-board internal connectors” on page 7 for the
location of system-board connectors.) Review the following information before
connecting power and signal cables to internal drives:
v The drives that are preinstalled in your server come with power and signal cables
attached. If you replace any drives, remember which cable is attached to which
drive.
v When you install a drive, ensure that one of the drive connectors of the signal
cable is connected to the drive and that the connector at the other end of the
signal cable is connected to the system board.
v The server has two IDE buses, primary and secondary. Each of these buses
supports up to two IDE devices. The primary IDE bus uses connector IDE1 on
the system board and the secondary IDE bus uses connector IDE2.
v If you have only one IDE device on a cable, it must be set as a master device.
v If two IDE devices are used on a single cable, one must be designated as the
master device and the other as the subordinate device; otherwise, the server
might not recognize some of the IDE devices. The master and subordinate
designation is determined by switch or jumper settings on each IDE device.
The following cables are provided:
v Power cables: Four-wire power cables connect the drives to the power supply.
At the end of these cables are plastic connectors that can be attached to
different drives; these connectors vary in size.
v Signal cables: Signal cables are typically flat cables, also called ribbon cables,
that connect IDE, SCSI, and diskette drives to the system board. Two or three
types of signal cable come with your server:
– IDE: The wider IDE signal cable has three connectors. One of these
connectors is attached to the drive, one is a spare, and the third is attached to
the primary or secondary IDE connector on the system board. The spare
connector can be used to connect an additional IDE drive to your server.
The CD-ROM drive is attached to an ATA 100 signal cable. ATA 100 signal
cables are color-coded. The blue connector is attached to the system board.
The black connector is attached to the master IDE device. The gray middle
connector is attached to the subordinate IDE device.
– Diskette drive: The narrower signal cable has two connectors. One is
attached to the diskette drive, and the other is attached to the connector
(FDD1) on the system board.
– SCSI: A round SCSI cable connects SCSI devices to the integrated SCSI
controller with RAID capabilities on the system board. For hot-swap models,
the maximum cable length that supports Ultra320 SCSI hard disk drives is 16
inches. For more information about connecting SCSI devices, see the SCSI
documentation.
Chapter 2. Installing options
25
Installing a hot-swap drive
Some server models support a maximum of six 1-inch (26 mm) slim-high, 3.5-inch,
hot-swap hard disk drives in the standard hot-swap bays. The hot-swap bays are
arranged vertically in the standard hard disk drive cage; the bay numbers are 4
through 9 (from top to bottom) with SCSI IDs of 0 through 5 (from bottom to top).
The hot-swap bays are below the removable-media drive bays.
For increased security, the hot-swap drives and filler panels are locked in the server
by the hot-swap lock bar. The hot-swap lock bar cannot be released, allowing
installation and removal of the hot-swap drives and filler panels, unless the key lock
on the server side cover is unlocked.
Notes:
1. All hot-swap drives being used in the server should have the same speed
rating; mixing speed ratings will cause all drives to operate at the lower speed.
2. 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.
3. The SCSI ID for each hot-swap hard disk drive is printed on the hot-swap lock
bar.
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 in each bay.
1. Review the “Installation guidelines” on page 9, and “Handling static-sensitive
devices” on page 10.
2. Open the server door.
26
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: Installation Guide
3. Remove the hot-swap lock bar:
a. Unlock the side-cover lock.
b. Rotate the hot-swap lock bar forward and remove it from the bezel. If the
hot-swap lock bar will not rotate, press the top of the hot-swap lock bar to
release the lock mechanism.
4. Remove the filler panel from one of the empty hot-swap bays by inserting your
finger into the depression at the left side of the filler panel and pulling it away
from the server.
5. 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.
c.
d.
e.
Align the drive assembly with the guide rails in the bay.
Gently push the drive assembly into the bay until the drive stops.
Push the tray handle to the closed (locked) position.
Check the hard disk drive status indicator to verify that the hard disk drive is
operating properly.
If the amber hard disk drive status LED for a drive is lit continuously, this
indicates that drive is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the green hard disk
drive activity LED is flashing, this indicates that the drive is being accessed.
Note: If your server is configured for RAID operation using the integrated SCSI
controller with RAID capabilities or an optional ServeRAID controller, you
might need to reconfigure your disk arrays after installing hard disk
drives. See the ServeRAID documentation on the IBM ServeRAID
Support CD for additional information about RAID operation and
complete instructions for using ServeRAID Manager.
6. If you are installing additional hot-swap hard disk drives, do so now; otherwise,
replace the hot-swap lock bar.
7. If you have other options to install or remove, do so now; otherwise go to
“Completing the installation” on page 34.
SCSI IDs for hot-swap hard disk drives
The hot-swap-drive backplane controls the SCSI IDs for the internal hot-swap drive
bays. The SCSI ID for each hot-swap hard disk drive is printed on the hot-swap
lock bar. Table 3 lists the SCSI IDs for the hard disk drives and backplane that are
connected to one channel in hot-swap hard disk drive models. In the typical
configuration, the standard hard disk drives and backplane are connected to
channel A.

Installing memory modules
You can increase the amount of memory in your server by installing memory
modules. Your server uses industry-standard PC2100 double-data-rate (DDR) dual
inline memory modules (DIMMs).
Notes:
1. The system board contains four DIMM connectors and supports two-way
memory interleaving.
2. The DIMM options available for your server are 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, 1
GB, and 2 GB. Your server supports a minimum of 256 MB and a maximum of 8
GB of system memory.
3. The amount of usable memory will be reduced depending on the system
configuration. A certain amount of memory must be reserved for system
resources. The BIOS will display the total amount of installed memory and the
amount of configured memory.
4. Your server comes with two 256 MB or 512 MB DIMMs (for a total of 512 MB or
1024 MB) installed in the DIMM 3 and DIMM 4 memory connectors. When you
install additional DIMMs, be sure to install them as a pair in DIMM connectors 1
and 2.
5. DIMMs must be installed in matched pairs. The first pair of DIMMs you install in
DIMM 3 and DIMM 4 memory connectors must be the same size, speed, type,
and technology. You can mix compatible DIMMs from various manufacturers. If
you install a second pair of DIMMs in DIMM 1 and DIMM 2 memory connectors,
they do not have to be the same size, speed, type, and technology as the
DIMMs you installed in DIMM 3 and DIMM 4 memory connectors. However, the
size, speed, type, and technology of the DIMMs you install in DIMM 1 and
DIMM 2 memory connectors must match each other.
6. Install only 133 MHz (memory bus), 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.
7. Your server supports Chipkill™ memory if the DIMMs are all type x4 and are 256
MB or larger. Using any 128 MB DIMMs or DIMMs that are not type x4 on your
server disables Chipkill memory.
Complete the following steps to install a DIMM:
1. Review the safety information beginning on page v, and “Handling
static-sensitive devices” on page 10.
2. Remove the side cover (see “Removing the side cover” on page 11).
3. Remove the support bracket (see “Removing and installing the support bracket”
on page 13).
4. Locate the DIMM connectors on the system board. Determine the connectors
into which you will install the DIMMs. Install the DIMMs in the order shown in
the following table.

5. Open the retaining clips and, if necessary, remove any existing DIMM.
6. Touch the static-protective package containing the DIMM to any unpainted metal
surface on the server. Then remove the new DIMM from the package.
7. Gently open the retaining clip on each end of the DIMM slot. Turn the DIMM so
that the pins align correctly with the connector.
8. Insert the DIMM into the connector. Firmly press the DIMM straight down into
the connector by applying pressure on both ends of the DIMM simultaneously.
The retaining clips snap into the locked position when the DIMM is firmly seated
in the connector. If there is a gap between the DIMM and the retaining clips, the
DIMM has not been correctly installed. Open the retaining clips, remove the
DIMM, and then reinsert it.

Installing an additional microprocessor
Your server comes with one microprocessor installed on the system board. Your
server supports up to 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.
Before you begin:
v Thoroughly review the documentation that comes with the microprocessor to
determine the required BIOS update. The latest level of BIOS code for your
server is available from the World Wide Web. See the User’s Guide on the IBM
xSeries Documentation CD for the World Wide Web addresses.
v (Optional) Obtain an SMP-capable operating system. For a list of supported
operating systems and other options, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/ on
the World Wide Web.
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 microprocessor must always be installed in socket CPU1 of the
system board.
Notes:
1. To order additional microprocessor options, contact your IBM marketing
representative or authorized reseller.
2. Terminator cards are not required for empty microprocessor sockets. However,
for airflow, an empty microprocessor socket must contain a microprocessor
baffle.
3. The microprocessor speeds are automatically set for this server; therefore, you
do not need to set any microprocessor frequency-selection jumpers or switches.
4. If you need to replace a microprocessor, call for service.
5. For additional illustrations of the system-board components, see “System-board
option connectors” on page 6.
Some operating systems need to be configured to support an additional
microprocessor. See the Option Installation Guide on the IBM xSeries

Updating your server configuration
When you start your server for the first time after you add or remove an internal
option or an external SCSI device, you might see a message telling you that the
configuration has changed. The Configuration/Setup Utility program automatically
starts so that you can save the new configuration information. See Chapter 4,
“Configuring the server”, on page 41 for additional information.
Some options have device drivers that you need to install. See the documentation
that comes with your option for information about installing any required device
drivers.
Your server comes with one microprocessor installed on the system board. If you
have installed an additional microprocessor, your server can now operate as an
SMP server. Therefore, you might need to upgrade your operating system to
support SMP. See the User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD and
your operating-system documentation for additional information.
If your server has a RAID configuration using the integrated SCSI controller with
RAID capabilities or has a ServeRAID controller installed and you have installed or
removed a hard disk drive, see the ServeRAID documentation that comes with your
server for information about reconfiguring your disk arrays.

Hard disk drive activity LED
When this LED is flashing, it indicates that a hard disk drive is in use.
Hot-swap hard disk drive activity LED
On some server models, each hot-swap drive has a hard disk drive activity
LED. When this green LED is flashing, it indicates that the drive is in use.
Hot-swap hard disk drive status LED
On some server models, each hot-swap hard disk drive has a status LED. If
the status LED for a drive is lit continuously, that individual drive is faulty.
The interpretation of a flashing status LED depends on the SCSI controller
connected to the hot-swap drive, as follows:
v When the drive is connected to the integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities, a flashing status LED indicates that the drive is a secondary
drive in a mirrored pair and the drive is being synchronized.
v When the drive is connected to an optional ServeRAID controller, a
slowly flashing (one flash per second) status LED indicates that the drive
is being rebuilt. When the LED is flashing rapidly (three flashes per
second), it indicates that the controller is identifying the drive.

v LSI Logic Configuration Utility
With the built-in LSI Logic Configuration Utility program, you can configure the
integrated SCSI controller and the devices that are attached to it. For information
about how to start this utility, see “Using the LSI Logic Configuration Utility
program” on page 43.
v ServeRAID Manager
The ServeRAID programs come with your server. If your server has a ServeRAID
controller installed, you must use the ServeRAID Configuration program to define
and configure your disk-array subsystem before you install your operating
system. See “Using ServeRAID Manager” on page 43 for more information.
This section provides the instructions for starting the utility programs. See the
User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD for detailed instructions for
using the configuration programs and ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD.

Using the RAID configuration programs
Use the following programs to configure and manage RAID arrays. Be sure to use
these programs as described in this book:
v LSI Logic Configuration Utility program
Use the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program to:
– Perform a low-level format on a SCSI hard disk drive
– View or change SCSI IDs for attached devices
– Set SCSI protocol parameters on SCSI hard disk drives
v ServeRAID Manager
Use the ServeRAID Manager program to:
– Configure a redundant array of independent disks (RAID)
– View your RAID configuration and associated devices
– Monitor operation of your RAID controllers
The following notes provide information that you must consider when using the LSI
Logic Configuration Utility and the ServeRAID Manager programs to configure and
manage your arrays:
v The integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities in your server supports only
RAID level 1 with a hot-spare drive installed. Installing an optional ServeRAID
controller provides additional RAID levels.
v You cannot use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD to configure the
integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities.
v When you create a RAID 1 mirrored pair, all drives must be on the same
channel.
v Hard disk capacities influence the way you create arrays. Drives in the array can
be of different capacities, but the RAID controller treats them as if they all have
the capacity of the smallest disk drive.
42
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: Installation Guide
v To help ensure signal quality, do not mix drives with different speeds and data
rates.
v You can set up a mirror after the operating system is installed on the primary
drive only if you are using the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities.
You must ensure that the primary drive has the lower SCSI ID (for example 0).
Important: If you use the integrated SCSI controller with RAID capabilities to
configure a RAID level 1 (mirrored) array after you install the
operating system, you will lose access to any data or applications
that were previously stored on the secondary physical drive of the
mirrored pair.
v To update the firmware and BIOS for an optional ServeRAID controller, you must
use the IBM ServeRAID Support CD that comes with ServeRAID option.
v If you install a different type of RAID controller in your server, use the
configuration method supplied with the RAID controller to view or change SCSI
settings for attached devices.
Using the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program
Complete the following steps to start the LSI Logic Configuration Utility program:
1. Turn on the server.
2. When the prompt <<< Press <CTRL><C> to start LSI Logic Configuration
Utility >>> appears, press Ctrl+C. If you have set an administrator password,
you are prompted to type the password.
3. Use the arrow keys to select a controller (channel) from the list of adapters;
then, press Enter.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen to change the settings of the selected
items; then, press Enter. The Device Properties and Mirroring Properties
choices produce additional screens of parameters to review or change.
See the User’s Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD for more detailed
information about the LSI Logic Configuration Utility. In addition, an LSI
Command-line configuration program (CFG1030) is available at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
Using ServeRAID Manager
You can run ServeRAID Manager in startable-CD mode from the IBM ServeRAID
Support CD or as an installed program. For information about installing ServeRAID
Manager, see the documentation on the CD.
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.
Before you install your operating system, you must configure the controller that is
attached to the hard disk drives. You must use the configuration program on the
IBM ServeRAID Support CD to configure the integrated SCSI controller with RAID
capabilities or to configure an optional IBM ServeRAID controller.

Appendix B. IBM Statement of Limited Warranty Z125-4753-07
11/2002
Part 1 - General Terms
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms, Part 2 Country-unique Terms, and Part 3 - Warranty Information. 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. 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. Nothing in this Statement of
Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be
waived or limited by contract.
What this Warranty Covers
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and
workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications
(“Specifications”) which are available on request. The warranty period for the
Machine starts on the original Date of Installation and is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information. The date on your invoice or sales receipt is the Date of
Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise. 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. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, these warranties apply only in the
country or region in which you purchased the Machine.
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. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH WARRANTIES
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES
APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO
THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
What this Warranty Does not Cover
This warranty does not cover the following:
v any software programs, whether pre-loaded or shipped with the Machine, or
installed subsequently;
v failure resulting from misuse (including but not limited to use of any Machine
capacity or capability, other than that authorized by IBM in writing), accident,
modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, or improper
maintenance by you;
v failure caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible; and
v any non-IBM products, including those that IBM may procure and provide with or
integrate into an IBM Machine at your request.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2003
63
The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of identification labels on the
Machine or its parts.
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, is provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, contact
IBM or your reseller to obtain warranty service. If you do not register the Machine
with IBM, you may be required to present proof of purchase as evidence of your
entitlement to warranty service.
What IBM Will Do to Correct Problems
When you call for service, you must follow the problem determination and resolution
procedures that IBM specifies. A technician will attempt to make an initial diagnosis
of your problem and help you resolve it over the telephone.
The type of warranty service applicable to your Machine is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information.
You are responsible for downloading and installing designated Machine Code
(microcode, basic input/output system code (called “BIOS”), utility programs, device
drivers, and diagnostics delivered with an IBM Machine) and other software updates
from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the
instructions that IBM provides.
If your problem can be resolved with a Customer Replaceable Unit (“CRU”) (e.g.,
keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, hard disk drive and other easily replaceable
parts), IBM will ship these parts to you for replacement by you.
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period and your
problem cannot be resolved over the telephone, through your application of
Machine Code or software updates, or with a CRU, IBM or your reseller, if approved
by IBM to provide warranty service, will either, at its discretion, 1) repair it to make it
function as warranted, or 2) replace it with one that is at least functionally
equivalent. If IBM is unable to do either, you may return the Machine to your place
of purchase and your money will be refunded.
IBM or your reseller will also manage and install selected engineering changes that
apply to the Machine.
Exchange of a Machine or Part
When the 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.
Your Additional Responsibilities
64
IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: Installation Guide
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 service request procedures that IBM or your reseller provides;
b. backup or secure all programs, data, and funds contained in the Machine;
c. provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit IBM to fulfill its obligations; and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in the Machine’s location.
4. (a) ensure all information about identified or identifiable individuals (Personal
Data) is deleted from the Machine (to the extent technically possible), (b) allow
IBM, your reseller or an IBM supplier to process on your behalf any remaining
Personal Data as IBM or your reseller considers necessary to fulfill its
obligations under this Statement of Limited Warranty (which may include
shipping the Machine for such processing to other IBM service locations around
the world), and (c) ensure that such processing complies with any laws
applicable to such Personal Data.
Limitation of Liability
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine only 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 are responsible for any of your confidential,
proprietary or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM
for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine prior to its
return.
Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM’s part or other
liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such instance,
regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM
(including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract or
tort claim), 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 (“LIC”).
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, ITS SUPPLIERS OR RESELLERS
LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING EVEN IF INFORMED OF THEIR
POSSIBILITY: 1) THIRD PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES
(OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF,
OR DAMAGE TO, DATA; 3) SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES
OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; OR 4) LOST
