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

IBM xSeries 240 Installation Guide
Chapter 2. Installing options
This chapter provides the basic information needed to install hardware options in
your server. This section is for all users, but is written with the experienced user in
mind.
If you need more detailed installation information, refer to the User's Reference on
the xSeries Documentation CD.
Working inside a server with power on
Your server supports hot-swap drives, fans, and power supplies and is designed to
operate safely while turned on with the cover removed. Follow these guidelines
when you work inside a server that is turned on:
Avoid loose-fitting clothing on your forearms. Button long-sleeved shirts before
working inside the server; do not wear cuff links while you are working inside
the server.
Do not allow your necktie or scarf to hang inside the server.
Remove jewelry, such as bracelets, rings, necklaces, and loose-fitting wrist
watches.
Remove items from your shirt pocket (such as pens and pencils) that could fall
into the server as you lean over it.
Take care to avoid dropping any metallic objects, such as paper clips, hair pins,
or screws, into the server.
Working with adapters
You can install up to five peripheral component interconnect (PCI) adapters in the
expansion slots on the system board.
In three of the PCI slots, you can install a new PCI adapter or replace an existing
PCI adapter with the same type of adapter without turning off the server power and
restarting the system, if these features are supported by your operating system.
These slots are called hot-pluggable PCI slots. They are also referred to as hotplug PCI or Active PCI slots.
The two remaining PCI slots support standard (non-hot-plug) PCI adapters.

Non-hot-plug 32-bit PCI slots 1 and 2 (on PCI bus A)
Hot-plug 64-bit PCI slots 3–5 (on PCI bus B)
Power LEDs for hot-swap slots
Internal Attention LEDs for hot-swap slots
External Attention LEDs for hot-swap slots
LEDs for hot-plug PCI slots
Each hot-plug PCI slot has three LEDs associated with it — two Attention LEDs
and one Power LED.
Power LED: This LED is on when the hot-plug PCI slot is active and has
power. An adapter must not be added to or removed from the PCI slot when
the Power LED is on. When this LED is off, the PCI slot is inactive and has no
power applied. An adapter can be installed when the Power LED for the PCI
slot is off. Refer to your operating system documentation to determine if it supports hot-plug PCI adapters, and, if so, how to disable the hot-plug PCI slot.
Attention LEDs: Each hot-plug PCI slot has an Attention LED that is visible
from the rear of the server and one that can be seen from inside the server.
(The LEDs have the same meaning; they are duplicated to be visible from
outside or inside the server.) An Attention LED flashes approximately once per
second when it is on. The meaning of the Attention LEDs is defined by your
operating system. Refer to your operating system documentation to determine
if it supports hot-plug PCI adapters and, if so, what the Attention LEDs indicate.

IBM xSeries 240 Installation Guide
The following table describes the LEDs:

Review the documentation that comes with the adapter and follow those
instructions in addition to the instructions given in this chapter. If you need to
change the switch or jumper settings on your adapter, follow the instructions
that come with the adapter documentation.
You can install full-length adapters in all expansion slots.
You can install hot-plug PCI adapters in PCI slots 3–5, if your operating system
supports this feature. Non-hot-plug PCI adapters can also be installed in these
slots.
Your server supports 5.0 V and universal PCI adapters; it does not support
3.3 V adapters.
Note: A universal PCI adapter supports both 3.3 V and 5.0 V operation.
PCI slots 1 and 2 are on PCI bus A, and PCI slots 3–5 are on PCI bus B. Both
PCI buses are primary buses. The system scans PCI slots 1 through 5 to
assign system resources; then the system starts (boots) the PCI devices in the
following order, if the default boot precedence has not been changed: PCI
slots 1 and 2, system board SCSI devices, and then PCI slots 3 through 5.
Enabling hot-plug PCI support
Your xSeries 240 server has hot-plug PCI capability. To enable this feature, you
must install the operating system services for hot-plug PCI support code. To obtain
the operating system hot-plug PCI support code, access
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support on the World Wide Web.

Attention:
Make sure the Power light 6 for the hot-plug PCI slot is off before you continue to the next step.
4. Remove the expansion-slot cover 1:
a. Rotate the adapter retention latch 3 counterclockwise.
b. Lift the tab 2, if required, covering the top of the expansion-slot cover
1 and then remove the expansion-slot cover from the server. Store it in a
safe place for future use.
Attention:
Expansion-slot covers must be installed on all vacant slots. This maintains the
electromagnetic emissions characteristics of the system and ensures proper
cooling of system components.
5. Refer to the documentation that comes with your adapter for any cabling
instructions. It might be easier for you to route any cables before you install
the adapter.
6. Press on the touchpoint on the adapter retainer flap 4 at the end of the slot
nearest the front of the server and rotate the adapter retainer flap upward.
7. Remove the adapter from the static-protective package.
Attention:
Avoid touching the components and gold-edge connectors on the adapter.
8. Place the adapter, component-side up, on a flat, static-protective surface.
9. Set any jumpers or switches as described by the adapter manufacturer.
10. Install the adapter:
a. Carefully grasp the adapter 8 by its top edge or upper corners, and align
it with the expansion slot on the system board.
b. Press the adapter firmly into the expansion slot.
Attention:
When you install an adapter in the server, be sure that it is completely and
correctly seated in the system-board connector. Incomplete insertion might
cause damage to the system board or the adapter.
c. Lower the tab 2 on the adapter guide over the tab on the top corner of
adapter; then, rotate the adapter retention latch 3 clockwise until it snaps
into place.
Attention:
Power cannot be restored to the adapter slot if the tab is not lowered into
place.
d. Close the adapter retainer flap 4.
11. Connect any needed cables to the adapter.
Notes:
a. Route cables so that the flow of air from the fans is not blocked.
b. If you installed a hot-plug adapter, enable the PCI slot from your operating
system. (Refer to the documentation that comes with your operating
system for information about enabling a hot-plug PCI slot.) Make sure that
the Power light 6 for the hot-plug PCI slot is on.

Special considerations for installing a ServeRAID adapter
You can install an optional ServeRAID adapter in your server to control the hotswap hard disk drives.
To install the ServeRAID adapter:
1. Disconnect the SCSI cable from the SCSI cable extender on the system board.
See the illustration in “Installing a PCI adapter” on page 12 for the location of
the SCSI cable extender. (The other end of the SCSI cable is connected to the
SCSI hard disk drive backplane.) The Service label on the inside of the cover
of your server shows cable routing for an optional ServeRAID adapter.
2. Connect the end of the SCSI cable that you disconnected from the SCSI cable
extender to the ServeRAID adapter. The other end of the cable is connected
to the SCSI hard disk drive backplane; the drives in the hot-swap bays are now
connected to the ServeRAID adapter.
3. Connect the 2-drop SCSI cable to the SCSI cable extender on the system
board, and attach the device in the non-hot-swap bay to one of the drops on
the other end of the 2-drop SCSI cable. The device is attached to the integrated SCSI controller.
Refer to the documentation provided with the ServeRAID adapter for more information about installing the adapter and configuring a disk array.

Installing memory modules
Your server comes with a DIMM installed on the processor board in DIMM connector 4 (J1). You must install the largest DIMM in the memory connector farthest
from the microprocessor (DIMM connector 4). If you install two DIMMs, you must
install the second one in the memory connector closest to the microprocessor
(DIMM connector 1). If you install three DIMMs, you must install the third one in
DIMM connector 2. If you install four DIMMs, you must install the fourth one in
DIMM connector 3.
Note: The size of the DIMMs in the other memory connectors (DIMM connectors
1, 2, and 3) does not matter. Refer to the following table for some typical
memory configurations.

IBM xSeries 240 Installation Guide
Installing a microprocessor
Your server comes with one microprocessor installed on the processor board. If
you install an additional microprocessor kit, your server can operate as a symmetric
multiprocessing (SMP) server. With SMP, certain operating systems and application programs can distribute the processing load between the microprocessors.
This enhances performance for database and point-of-sale applications, integrated
manufacturing solutions, and other applications.
Attention:
To avoid damage and ensure proper server operation when you install a new or 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.
The microprocessor that is installed in microprocessor connector U5 is CPU or
processor 1. If a microprocessor is installed in microprocessor connector U6, it is
CPU or processor 2. If the server has only one microprocessor installed, that
microprocessor is installed in microprocessor connector U5 and is the startup (boot)
processor. If more than one microprocessor is installed, the microprocessor with
the lower stepping level is the startup processor, and the microprocessor with the
higher stepping level is the application processor. If both microprocessors have the
same stepping level, the microprocessor installed in microprocessor connector U6
is the startup processor, and the microprocessor installed in U5 is the application
processor.
Note: You can determine the stepping levels of the installed microprocessors
using the Configuration/Setup utility.
Before you begin:
Thoroughly review the documentation that comes with the microprocessor,
so that you can determine whether you need to update the server basic
input/output system (BIOS) code. The latest level of BIOS code for your
server is available through the World Wide Web.
Obtain an SMP-capable operating system (optional). For a list of supported
operating systems, see http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/ on the World
Wide Web.

Chapter 4. Configuring your server
The ServerGuide CDs provide software setup tools and installation tools that are
specifically designed for your IBM server. Use these CDs during the initial installation of your server to configure basic hardware features and to simplify your
network operating system installation. (See "Using the ServerGuide CDs" for more
information.) The ServerGuide CDs also contain a collection of application programs, which you can install after your server is up and running.
In addition to the ServerGuide CDs, you can use the following configuration programs to customize your server hardware:
Configuration/Setup Utility
The Configuration/Setup Utility program is part of the basic input/output system
(BIOS) code that comes with your server. You can use this program to configure serial and parallel port assignments, change interrupt request (IRQ) settings, change the drive startup sequence, set the date and time, and set
passwords.
SCSISelect Utility
With the built-in SCSISelect Utility program, you can configure the devices that
are attached to the integrated SCSI controller. Use this program to change
default values, resolve configuration conflicts, and perform a low-level format on
a SCSI hard disk drive.
ServeRAID programs
If you have a ServeRAID adapter installed in your server, you must use the
ServeRAID configuration program to define and configure your disk-array subsystem before you install your operating system.
Refer to the User's Reference on the xSeries Documentation CD for detailed

Wavy, unreadable, rolling, distorted screen, or screen jitter.
Some IBM monitors have their own self-tests. If you suspect a
problem with your monitor, refer to the information that comes
with the monitor for adjusting and testing instructions.
If the monitor self-tests show the monitor is OK, consider the
location of the monitor. Magnetic fields around other devices
(such as transformers, appliances, fluorescent lights, and other
monitors) can cause screen jitter or wavy, unreadable, rolling, or
distorted screen images. If this happens, turn off the monitor.
(Moving a color monitor while it is turned on might cause screen
discoloration.) Then move the device and the monitor at least
305 mm (12 in.) apart. Turn on the monitor.
Notes:
1. To prevent diskette drive read/write errors, be sure the distance between monitors and diskette drives is at least 76
mm (3 in.).
2. Non-IBM monitor cables might cause unpredictable problems.
