xSeries 440:User’s Guide
What your IBM xSeries 440 offers
The design of your server takes advantage of advancements in memory management
and data storage. Your server includes:
•
IBM Enterprise X-Architecture
Enterprise X-Architecture is an IBM design blueprint that takes full advantage of
existing IBM technologies to build the most powerful, scalable, and reliable Intel
processor-based servers. For more information about IBM Enterprise X-Architecture, refer to http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/eserver/xseries/xarchitecture/enterprise/index.html
•
Active™ Memory
Memory Mirroring offers even greater memory reliability. With the same amount of
memory in both memory ports and Memory Mirroring enabled in BIOS code, the
data from the first memory port is copied or mirrored in the second, giving you
redundant copies of the information stored in memory.
•
Memory ProteXion™
This is the equivalent of a hot-spare drive in a RAID array. Memory ProteXion is
based in the memory controller, giving your server the ability to sense when a chip
on a DIMM has failed and route the data around the failed chip.
•
Large system memory
The memory bus in your server supports up to 32 GB of system memory. The
memory controller provides error code correction (ECC) support for up to 32
industry-standard PC133, 3.3 V, 168-pin, 133 megahertz (MHz), registered,
synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) dual inline memory
modules (DIMMs).
•
XceL4™ Server Accelerator Cache
With up to 64MB of high-performance level-4 system cache, the xSeries 440 introduces XceL4 cache, designed by IBM specifically to alleviate the memory bandwidth demands that the new Intel processors place on the memory subsystem.
XceL4 Server Accelerator Cache also enables speedier access to memory for the
PCI-X I/O, Gigabit Ethernet, SCSI and Fibre Channel interfaces, yielding better
overall system utilization, and therefore higher throughput.
•
Light Path Diagnostics
The Light Path Diagnostics feature provides LEDs to assist in isolating problems
with the server. A light on the operator information panel is lit if an unusual condition or a problem occurs. If this happens, you can look at the LEDs inside the Light
Path Diagnostic drawer and those visible through the cover to isolate the cause.
Under some circumstances, you might need to remove the cover and view LEDs
on the printed circuit boards to pinpoint the source of a problem.
•
Systems management capabilities
The server comes with a Remote Supervisor Adapter installed in a dedicated
PCI-X slot. This adapter, in conjunction with the systems-management software
provided with the server, enables you to manage the functions of the server both
locally and remotely. The Remote Supervisor Adapter also provides system
monitoring, event recording, and dial-out alert capability.
Chapter 1. Introducing the IBM xSeries 440
5
•
Integrated network environment support
Your server comes with an integrated Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet controller. This
Ethernet controller has an interface for connecting to 10/100/1000-Mbps
networks. The server automatically selects between 10BASE-T and
100/1000BASE-TX environments. The controller provides full-duplex (FDX)
capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the
Ethernet local area network (LAN). This controller supports Wake on LAN®
technology.
•
IBM ServerGuide CD
The ServerGuide™ 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.
Note: If your server model came with an operating system installed, such as
Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Datacenter Server, see the software documentation provided with your server for configuration information.
For more information about the ServerGuide CD, see “Using the ServerGuide CD”

Chapter 2. Configuring your server
23
Setup and configuration overview
When you use the Setup and Installation CD, you do not need setup diskettes. You
can use the CD to configure any supported IBM server model. The setup program
checks the system BIOS code, Remote Supervisor Adapter, and other system hardware to determine whether system updates are available. The setup program provides
a list of tasks that are required to set up the server model. On RAID servers, you can
run the ServeRAID Manager program to create logical drives.
Note: Specific features and functions can vary with different versions of the
ServerGuide software.
When you start the Setup and Installation CD, the following happens:
•
You are prompted for the language, country, and keyboard layout. (This
information is stored and later passed on to the NOS installation program.)
•
The ServerGuide program displays choices for running the configuration
programs. For example:
— The Express Configuration method runs the required programs for the server,
based on the hardware that is detected.
— The Custom Configuration method displays all programs that are available for
the 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.
•
If you select the Custom Configuration method, the following programs are
optional. If you select the Express Configuration method, some or all of these
programs 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 program is provided so that you can delete all partitions
on all hard disk drives. If the server has a ServeRAID adapter installed, you
can select to restore the configuration on the ServeRAID adapter to the
factory default settings.
— The ServerGuide program checks the server BIOS code and microcode
(firmware) levels for supported options and then checks the CD for a newer
level. CD content can be newer than the hardware. The ServerGuide program
can perform a flash update of the BIOS code and supported microcode
(firmware) options without the use of diskettes.
— The ServeRAID configuration program starts, guiding you through the entire
configuration process.
— The Performance Optimizer program easily tunes the server for your
environment.
— The ServerGuide program creates a System Partition on the default drive.
•
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 the
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 the server come in BIOS code or on a separate diagnostics CD.
24
xSeries 440:User’s Guide
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 Remote Supervisor
Adapter disk operating system (DOS) utilities, system diagnostics, flash BIOS
updates, and other programs.
Note: 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 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 the server model.
Typical NOS Installation
The server supports the following network operating systems:
•
Windows 2000 Server Family
•
Select Linux operating systems
•
Windows NT 4.0 Enterprise Edition (single SMP Expansion Module models only)
See “Features at a glance” on page 23 for details about the specific network operating
systems supported by ServerGuide.
You can use the ServerGuide program to shorten the installation time. The
ServerGuide program provides the necessary device drivers, based on the hardware
that you have and the NOS that you are installing. (If you prefer to install the NOS
without using ServerGuide, you can do so. (See the important information at
“Installing the NOS without ServerGuide” on page 26 for details.) The following is a
brief explanation of a typical ServerGuide NOS installation.
Note: Specific features and functions can vary with different versions of the
ServerGuide software
•
After you have completed the setup process, the operating system installation
program starts. (You will need a copy of the NOS CD to complete the installation.)
•
The ServerGuide program stores information about the server model, Remote
Supervisor Adapter, hard disk controllers, and network adapters. It then checks
the CD for newer device drivers. This information is stored and then passed to the
NOS installation program.
•
With some NOS installations, you can create a NOS Replication Diskette for
setting up additional servers. The diskette will contain the Internet protocol (IP)
address, server name, and other selections.
•
The ServerGuide program presents NOS partition options that are based on your
NOS selection and the installed hard disk drives.
•
If you are installing the NOS from diskette, the ServerGuide program displays the
required 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.
The ServerGuide program prompts you to insert the NOS CD and restart the server.
At this point, the installation program for the NOS (for example, Microsoft Windows
2000) takes control to complete the installation.
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
25
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.
You can create a NOS Replication Diskette, which contains the server name, domain
name, and other information that you need to complete multiple installations. This
feature supports servers running Windows 2000 and select Linux operating systems.

continue with “Using the ASM interconnect network”. If you do not want to set up an
ASM interconnect network, Remote Supervisor Adapter configuration is now
complete. To start managing the server remotely, see the Remote Supervisor Adapter
User’s Guide on the IBM Documentation CD.
Using the ASM interconnect network
This section explains how to configure and connect the server to function within an
ASM interconnect network.
38
xSeries 440:User’s Guide
The ASM interconnect network can include as many as 12 individual ASM
connections in a single bus. These connections can include Remote Supervisor
Adapters, ASM processors, and ASM PCI Adapters. When the clients and servers
are connected, they use the ASM interconnect network to share ASM resources,
information, and alerts among multiple servers, without having to add additional
communications hardware or network interface adapters.
An ASM interconnect network provides two levels of functionality. First, the ASM
interconnect network enables you to configure settings and to control the servers
where other Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, and ASM PCI Adapters
on the network reside. Second, the ASM interconnect network enables other
interconnect network devices to use the resources (Ethernet or modem) of other
Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, and ASM PCI Adapters in the ASM
interconnect network for sending alerts. This interconnect network is used when
Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, or ASM PCI Adapters cannot send an
alert and must forward the information to another one of these devices to send the
alert.
Planning and cabling the interconnect
network: To support the most recent ASM features, a Remote Supervisor Adapter
must be the main gateway interconnect to the ASM interconnect bus if the bus also
includes servers with ASM PCI adapters or ASM processors. The Remote Supervisor
Adapter forwards the ASM information generated by the servers attached to the ASM
interconnect bus to other servers on the Ethernet network. The connected ASM
processors and ASM PCI Adapters are managed through the new user interface and
Web browser access of the Remote Supervisor Adapter.
Note: To ensure the stability of the system, you must have the most current level of
firmware installed on the Remote Supervisor Adapter that is the main
interconnect gateway for the ASM interconnect network. The most current
level of firmware is available on the World Wide Web at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support. For more information on updating firmware,
see the Remote Supervisor Adapter User’s Guide for the xSeries 440 on the
Documentation CD.
You must connect an ASM Interconnect module to the Remote Supervisor Adapter
and to each xSeries 440 server that you connect to the ASM interconnect network
bus.
Attention: To avoid damage to the Ethernet connector on the Remote Supervisor
Adapter, do not plug the ASM Interconnect module into the Remote Supervisor
Adapter Ethernet port.
To connect the servers, note the following setup and configuration considerations:
•
Make sure that the ASM interconnect network is set up as a bus, not as a ring.
You must connect the servers to the ASM interconnect network in a series, with
terminated beginning and end points.
•
Make sure that the total combined length of all Ethernet cables connecting the
server in the ASM interconnect network does not exceed 91 M (300 ft).
•
Each Remote Supervisor Adapter, ASM PCI adapter, or ASM processor that is
connected to the ASM interconnect network bus counts as one connection. For
example, if an ASM PCI adapter is installed in a server that has an ASM
processor, the processor and the adapter connect to each other using one ASM
interconnect connection, but the processor and the adapter count as two
connections on the ASM interconnect network bus.
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
39
Forwarding alerts: Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM PCI adapters, and ASM
processors that are connected to an ASM interconnect network share resources and
system-management information. This section provides information on how alerts are
forwarded in the ASM interconnect network.
During normal operation, each Remote Supervisor Adapter, ASM processor, or ASM
PCI adapter on the ASM interconnect network communicates with the other
processors and adapters on the network. Processors or adapters that have a modem
or Ethernet connection notify the other processors and adapters that these
communications resources are available for use by other servers on the ASM
interconnect network. These resources are then used as ASM interconnect network
resources, enabling Remote Supervisor Adapters, ASM processors, or ASM PCI
adapters on the ASM interconnect network to send alerts using a modem or the
network, even if they do not have a modem or network connection physically attached.
When alerts are generated, they are forwarded to the Remote Supervisor Adapter,
ASM processor, or ASM PCI adapter on the ASM interconnect network that has the
communication resources to forward the alert. If no system on the ASM interconnect
network meets the requirements, the alert is set for transmission if the connection type
is configured or becomes available later.
If multiple modems or network connections exist in the ASM interconnect network, you
cannot specify which system will receive an alert or which will use its modem or
network connection to forward the alert. If an alert is forwarded to a Remote
Supervisor Adapter, ASM processor, or ASM PCI adapter that is unable to deliver the
alert (for example, the modem it is configured to use has failed or the network cannot
resolve the destination IP address), the processor or adapter attempts to forward the
alert to another system on the ASM interconnect network that has the communication
resources to forward the alert.
Alerts are typically sent only once (per connection type), but an alert is forwarded to
another interconnect device if the resources exist on other interconnect devices in the
network. For example, on a three ASM processor network where ASM processor 1
generates a modem alert, but does not have a modem and the other ASM processors
have modems, the following might occur:
If ASM processor 1 generates an alert and the modem is unplugged from ASM
processor 2 45 seconds prior to ASM processor 1 generating the alert, ASM
processor 1 forwards the alert to ASM processor 2, having previously determined that
ASM processor 2 has an available modem. When ASM processor 2 receives the
forwarded alert, it determines that a modem is attached to ASM processor 3, and
forwards the alert. Therefore, depending upon the time frame (45 seconds) within
which a resource (modem) fails, the alert might be forwarded multiple times until an
interconnect device can send the alert.
Cabling for the ASM interconnect network: Depending upon the servers
you have, you might need additional ASM Interconnect modules or Category 5 or
Category 3 Ethernet cables. Table 4 lists some IBM Netfinity and IBM xSeries
products, and indicates whether you need to use an ASM Interconnect module to set
up the ASM interconnect network.

For the servers that do not need an ASM Interconnect module, a module is still
needed to connect the Remote Supervisor Adapter in the gateway server to the integrated ASM processor. After you make that connection, you can connect the servers
together using their ASM interconnect ports. For additional information, see “ASM
interconnect network configuration examples:” on page 43.
Connecting the ASM Interconnect module to the
xSeries 440: The ASM Interconnect module connects the Remote Supervisor
Adapter to the ASM interconnect network. This module must be purchased separately.
To connect the ASM interconnect module to the Remote Supervisor Adapter,
complete the following steps.
Attention: To avoid damage to the Ethernet connector, do not plug the ASM
interconnect module into the Remote Supervisor Adapter Ethernet port.
1. Connect the ASM Interconnect module 򍦠1򐂰 to the Remote Supervisor Adapter
ASM interconnect (peer-to-peer) port 򍦠2򐂰 as shown in the following illustration.
This port is on the edge of the Remote Supervisor Adapter that is accessible from
the rear of the server and is labeled RS485.

Configuring the Gigabit Ethernet controller
The server comes with an integrated Ethernet controller. This controller provides an
interface for connecting to 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps networks and provides
full duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception
of data on the Ethernet local area network (LAN).
When you connect your server to the network, the Ethernet controller automatically
detects the data-transfer rate (10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1000-Mbps) on the network and
then sets the controller to operate at the appropriate rate. In addition, if the Ethernet
ports that your server is connected to support auto-negotiation, the Gigabit 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 (10BASET), Fast Ethernet (100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T), half duplex (HDX), or full duplex
(FDX). The controller supports half-duplex (HDX) and full-duplex (FDX) modes at both
speeds.
Note: See the documentation on the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Software CD that came with your server for information about configuring the
Ethernet controller.
High-performance Ethernet modes
Your Ethernet controller supports optional modes, such as teaming, load balancing,
fault tolerance, and virtual LANs, which provide higher performance, security, and
throughput for your server. These modes apply to the integrated Ethernet controller
and to the controllers on supported Ethernet adapters, such as the IBM 10/100/1000
Ethernet Adapter or the IBM 10/100/1000 EtherJet™ PCI family of adapters.
Teaming mode: Your Ethernet controller provides options, called teaming
options, that apply to supported Ethernet controllers. A team can consist of two or
more Ethernet controllers, two Ethernet adapters, or a mix of integrated Ethernet controllers and Ethernet adapters. These options increase throughput and fault tolerance
when running with Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, Linux, or NetWare 4.1x or later.
•
Adapter fault tolerance (AFT) provides automatic redundancy for your Ethernet
controllers. You can configure either one of the integrated Ethernet controllers or
an Ethernet adapter as the primary Ethernet controller. If the primary link fails, the
secondary controller takes over. When the primary link is restored to an operational state, the Ethernet traffic switches back to the primary Ethernet controller.
Adapter fault tolerance supports from two to four controllers per team.
•
Adaptive load balancing (ALB) enables you to balance the transmission data
flow among two to four controllers. ALB also includes the AFT option. You can use
ALB with any 100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T switch.
•
Cisco Fast EtherChannel (FEC) creates a team of two to four controllers to
increase transmission and reception throughput. FEC also includes the AFT
option. You can use FEC only with a switch that has FEC capability.
If you use supported Ethernet adapters in your server, refer to the documentation that
comes with the adapters for more information about the teaming modes.
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.
Chapter 2. Configuring your server
45
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 geographically dispersed 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. Your Ethernet controller supersedes this by
communicating directly with the switch, enabling multiple VLANs on a single network
adapter (up to 64 VLANs).
To set up VLAN membership, your Ethernet controller must be attached to a switch
that has VLAN capability.
To join a VLAN from Microsoft 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 your switch documentation for more information.
2. Double-click the Network icon in the Control Panel window.
3. On the Adapters page, select the adapter you want to be on the VLAN and click
Properties.
4. Select the Load Balance/Virtual LAN tab.
5. Type the VLAN ID and VLAN name. The VLAN ID must match the VLAN ID of the
switch. The ID range is from 1 to 1000. The VLAN name is for information only
and does not need to match the name on the switch.
6. Click OK. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for each VLAN that you want the server to
join. The VLANs that you add are listed on the Configuration page.
7. Click Close and restart the computer.
Priority Packet mode: Priority Packet is a traffic-prioritization utility that enables
you 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.
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 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 your network must support 802.1p for tagging to be
effective.
To enable support for priority packets, you must go to the integrated Ethernet controller Properties Advanced tab and enable the 802.1p QOS feature.

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.
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
54
xSeries 440:User’s Guide
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 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.
