xSeries 450: 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 information, see the Option
Installation Guide on the IBM xSeries Documentation CD.
Installation guidelines
Before you begin to install 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. These guidelines will help you work safely
with your server or options.
v Make sure that you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for your server, monitor, and any other options that you intend to install.
v Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.
v The blue color on components and labels indicates touch points, where
components can be gripped, a latch moved, and so on.
v For a list of supported options for your server, go to the ServerProven® list at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/ on the World Wide Web.
Note: Some preconfigured servers have a unique list of supported options. See the
software documentation provided with those servers for more information.
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 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.
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 have replaced a hot-swap drive within 2 minutes of removal.
v All microprocessor sockets always contain either a microprocessor baffle or a
microprocessor and heat sink.
v For redundant and hot-swappable operation, the power supplies are connected to
200-240 V ac.
Working inside a server with power on
Your server supports hot-swap devices and is designed to operate safely while
turned on with the cover removed. Follow these guidelines when you work inside a
server that is turned on:
v Avoid loose-fitting clothing on your forearms. Button long-sleeved shirts before
working inside the server; do not wear cuff links while you are working inside the
server.
v Do not allow your necktie or scarf to hang inside the server.
v Remove jewelry, such as bracelets, rings, necklaces, and loose-fitting wrist
watches.

v Remove items from your shirt pocket (such as pens or pencils) that could fall into
the server as you lean over it.
v Take care to avoid dropping any metallic objects, such as paper clips, hair pins,
or screws, into the server.
Handling static-sensitive devices
Attention: Static electricity can damage electronic devices, including your server.
To avoid damage, keep static-sensitive devices in their static-protective package
until you are ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of damage from electrostatic discharge, observe the
following precautions:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
v Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and possibly damage the
device.
v While the device is still in its anti-static package, touch it to an unpainted metal
part of the system unit for at least 2 seconds. (This drains static electricity from
the package and from your body.)
v Remove the device from its package and install it directly into your system unit
without setting it down. If it is necessary to set the device down, place it in its
static-protective package. Do not place the device on your system unit cover or
on a metal table.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather as heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.
v Wear a properly grounded wrist strap against your skin to help eliminate static
electricity from your body.
Installing an adapter
The following notes describe the types of adapters that your server supports and
other information that you must consider when installing an adapter:
v The following illustration shows the location and bus speeds of the PCI-X
expansion slots on the PCI-X board.

v Locate the documentation that comes with the adapter and follow those
instructions in addition to the instructions in this section. If you need to change
the switch settings or jumper settings on your adapter, follow the instructions that
come with the adapter.
v Video adapters are not supported.
v Some full-length adapters have extension handles or brackets installed. Before
installing the adapter, you must remove the extension handle or bracket.
v Your server supports six hot-plug 64-bit adapters in the expansion slots on the
PCI-X board, as shown in the following table.

v You can install both PCI and PCI-X adapters on the same bus. However, if you
install a PCI adapter and a PCI-X adapter on the same bus, the PCI-X features
of the PCI-X adapter will be disabled, and the adapter will function as a PCI
adapter.
v You can install PCI or PCI-X adapters of speeds faster than what is labeled for a
particular PCI-X bus. For example, if you install two 133 MHz adapters into slots
that are labeled as 100 MHz slots, the adapters will operate at 100 MHz.
Chapter 2. Installing options
11
v If you install a 33 MHz and a 66 MHz adapter on the same bus, the bus speed
will match that of the slowest adapter.
v If a single 133 MHz adapter is installed on PCI-X bus B (slots 3 and 4) and the
other slot on PCI-X bus B is empty, the adapter will operate at 133 MHz.
v Your server supports 3.3 V and universal adapters; it does not support 5.0 V
adapters.
v The system scans PCI-X slots to assign system resources. The system attempts
to start the first device found. The search order is: PCI-X slots 1, 2, 6, 5, 3, and
4. If an optional remote I/O enclosure is attached, the scan continues with PCI-X
slots 11, 12, 9, 10, 7, 8, 17, 18, 15, 16, 13, and 14.
Complete the following steps to install an adapter:
1. Read the safety information beginning on page v and “Installation guidelines” on
page 9.
2. Disable the Active PCI-X slots through your operating system before you insert
or remove a PCI or PCI-X adapter.
Note: Some operating systems do not support the enabling and disabling of a
PCI-X slot. If your operating system does not support this function, or if
you are installing a non-hot-plug adapter, turn off the server and
peripheral devices, and disconnect the power cords and all external
devices from the back of the server before proceeding, if necessary.

IBM Statement of Limited Warranty Z125-4753-06 8/2000
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms and Part 2 Country-unique Terms. The terms of Part 2 replace or modify those of Part 1. The
warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to
Machines you purchase for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller.
The term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades,
elements, or accessories, or any combination of them. The term “Machine” does not
include any software programs, whether pre-loaded with the Machine, installed
subsequently or otherwise. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties
apply only in the country where you acquire the Machine. Nothing in this Statement
of Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived
or limited by contract. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.
The IBM Warranty for Machines: IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from
defects in materials and workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published
Specifications (“Specifications”). The warranty period for a Machine is a specified,
fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date on your sales receipt
is the Date of Installation unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and IBM or
your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is at
least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of purchase and your
money will be refunded.
Extent of Warranty: The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a
Machine resulting from misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or
operating environment, improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a
product for which IBM is not responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or
alteration of Machine or parts identification labels.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO
JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO
WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Items Not Covered by Warranty: IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free
operation of a Machine. Any technical or other support provided for a Machine
under warranty, such as assistance via telephone with “how-to” questions and those
regarding Machine set-up and installation, will be provided WITHOUT
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
Warranty Service: To obtain warranty service for a Machine, contact IBM or your
reseller. If you do not register your Machine with IBM, you may be required to
present proof of purchase.
50
xSeries 450: Installation Guide
During the warranty period, IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to provide
warranty service, provides without charge certain types of repair and exchange
service to keep Machines in, or restore them to, conformance with their
Specifications. IBM or your reseller will inform you of the available types of service
for a Machine based on its country of installation. At its discretion, IBM or your
reseller will 1) either repair or exchange the failing Machine and 2) provide the
service either at your location or a service center. IBM or your reseller will also
manage and install selected engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
Some parts of IBM Machines are designated as Customer Replaceable Units
(called “CRUs”), e.g., keyboards, memory, or hard disk drives. IBM ships CRUs to
you for replacement by you. You must return all defective CRUs to IBM within 30
days of your receipt of the replacement CRU. You are responsible for downloading
designated Machine Code and Licensed Internal Code updates from an IBM
Internet Web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that
IBM provides.
When warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or
your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours.
You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement
may not be new, but will be in good working order and at least functionally
equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty service
status of the replaced item. Many features, conversions, or upgrades involve the
removal of parts and their return to IBM. A part that replaces a removed part will
assume the warranty service status of the removed part.
Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all
features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service.
You also agree to
1. ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that
prevent its exchange;
2. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
3. where applicable, before service is provided:
a. follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request
procedures that IBM or your reseller provides;
b. secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine;
c. provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit them to fulfill their obligations; and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine’s location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in IBM’s
possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for the
transportation charges.
Neither IBM nor your reseller is responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary
or personal information contained in a Machine which you return to IBM or your
reseller for any reason. You should remove all such information from the Machine
prior to its return.
Limitation of Liability: Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on
IBM’s part or other liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each
such instance, regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages
from IBM (including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other
Appendix A. Warranty information
51
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.
