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 package until you are
ready to install them.
To reduce the possibility of electrostatic discharge, observe the following precautions:
4
•
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 static-protective 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 in its
static-protective package. Do not place the device on your system unit cover or on
a metal table.
•
Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather because heating
reduces indoor humidity and increases static electricity.

drives in the hard disk drive bays.
Each hot-swap hard disk drive has three indicator lights: the power-on light, activity
light, and status light. The hard disk drive lights are illustrated and described in
“Controls and indicators” on page 15. If the amber hard disk drive status light is lit
continuously, that individual drive is faulty and requires replacement. You can replace
a hot-swap drive without turning off the server.
Attention: When you handle static-sensitive devices, take precautions to avoid
damage from static electricity. For details on handling these devices, see “Handling
static-sensitive devices” on page 4.
Note: 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.

Warranty Period - Three Years
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
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2001
23
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 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
24
xSeries 380: Installation Guide
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.
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
