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

Installation Guide

on the IBM

xSeries Documentation

CD.

Option

Installation guidelines

Before you begin installing options in your server, read the following information: v

Review the safety information beginning on page vii and the guidelines in

“Handling static-sensitive devices” on page 10. This information will help you

work safely with your server and options.

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. If your server has stabilizing feet that rotate, before laying the server on its side, rotate the stabilizing feet a quarter turn inward toward the server, so that they do not break. Before returning the server to an upright position, rotate the stabilizing feet a quarter turn outward

from the server. See “Moving the stabilizing feet” on page 10 for more

information.

v v 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.

Back up all important data before you make changes to disk drives.

Have a small flat-blade screwdriver available.

v v 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.

The blue color on components and labels identifies touch points, where you can grip a component, move a latch, and so on.

For a list of supported options for your server, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/us/compat/ on the World Wide Web.

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 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.

You have followed the cabling instructions that come with optional adapters.

v v

You have replaced a failed fan as soon as possible.

You replace a hot-swap drive within 2 minutes of its removal.

v 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.

Microprocessor socket 2 always contains either a microprocessor baffle or a microprocessor and heat sink.

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 v v

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 circuitry.

v v v v

Do not leave the device where others can handle and damage it.

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.

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.

Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather. Heating reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

Moving the stabilizing feet

On some server models, the four feet on the bottom of the server rotate 90 degrees to provide additional stability.

When installing options in the server, you might find it easier to lay the server on its side. If you do so, rotate the feet inward toward the server, so that they do not break.

10

IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: Installation Guide

Removing the side cover

To remove the side cover, you might find it easier to lay the server on its side. If you do, and your server has stabilizing feet that rotate, move the stabilizing feet so

that they do not break (see “Moving the stabilizing feet” on page 10).

Complete the following steps to remove the side cover of the server:

1. Review the “Installation guidelines” on page 9.

2. Turn off the server and all attached devices (see “Turning off the server” on page 40); then, disconnect all power cords and external cables.

3. Unlock the side cover; then, pull the cover-release latch away from the server, and push the cover toward the rear of the server. Lift the side cover off the server and set it aside.

v v v v 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.

You can install full-length adapters in all five expansion slots. None of the expansion slots are hot-plug.

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.

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.

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.

v v v v v

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.

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.

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.

To provide failover protection, an optional Ethernet adapter can be installed only in PCI-X slots 2 through 5.

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.

For a list of supported options for your server, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/ on the World Wide Web.

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 v v 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.

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.

If you have only one IDE device on a cable, it must be set as a master device.

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

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.

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. Align the drive assembly with the guide rails in the bay.

c. Gently push the drive assembly into the bay until the drive stops.

d. Push the tray handle to the closed (locked) position.

e. 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 2 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 vii, “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. 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.

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.

66

IBM xSeries 225 Type 8647: 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 B. Warranty information

67

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.
