Applying Power to the HP Netserver
Powering-Up the HP Netserver
1. Turn on power to the monitor connected to the HP Netserver.
By powering on the monitor prior to the Netserver the user ensures that video output autoconfigures properly as the Netserver boots up.
2. Press the Power push-button on the front control panel.
When you press the power button, the Netserver powers up and loads the operating system.
The system runs a set of Power On Self Tests (POST) during this process.
Powering-Down the HP Netserver
1. Log off all users and if necessary, back up files.
◊
Schedule the power down for a time when the Netserver being down will affect the fewest
users.
◊
If you will be performing a hardware or software upgrade, ensure the Netserver's data has
been backed up.
◊
Follow instructions in your network operating system (NOS) documentation to shut down all
networking software and applications.
WARNING
4
The power supply will continue to provide standby current to the Netserver until
power is disconnected from the rear panel.
Chapter 1
General Information
2. Press the power switch on the HP Netserver control panel when prompted by the operating
system.
Normally this completes the power-down procedure.
Connecting AC Power to Multiple-Server Configurations
The HP Netserver temporarily draws a large "inrush current," when first connected to an AC power source.
The inrush current is much greater than the Netserver's normal operating current and generally, the AC
power source can handle the normal inrush current.
However, if you install several HP Netservers on one circuit, precautions are necessary. If there is a power
failure and power is then restored, all the servers immediately begin to draw inrush current at the same time.
If the circuit breakers on the incoming power line have insufficient capability, the breaker may trip and
prevent the servers from powering up. When preparing your site for installation, allow for the additional
inrush current.
Sleep States (ACPI)
The HP Netserver supports the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) standard, which is a key
component of a NOS's directed power management. The supported features are only available when an
ACPI-compliant NOS is installed on the Netserver. The term “sleep state” refers to any of several reduced
power consumption states in which normal NOS activity has ceased.
The Netserver supports several sleep states. One of these is a “standby” or “suspend” sleep state, which has
a short wake-up time. In this sleep state, the Netserver appears to be off. The monitor appears blank and
there is no CD-ROM or SCSI hard drive activity, however, the front panel power LED flashes slowly and the
fans continue to operate.
The Netserver also supports another sleep state with a slower wake-up time, sometimes referred to as
“hibernate” by various operating systems. In this sleep state, the Netserver appears to be off as described
earlier, but the fans and the front panel power LED are also turned off. The unique feature of this sleep state
(and the reason for its slower wake-up time) is that information about the Netserver’s NOS state (open
applications, screens, and so on) is saved to disk before the Netserver is placed in the sleep state. Upon
wake-up, this information must be restored from disk. This method of restoring the Netserver's operation is
much faster than a complete rebooting of the Netserver. It still requires running all the start-up self-tests
before starting the NOS, but loading the NOS and all the previously opened applications is much faster.
The Netserver supports certain types of system activity, which is used as wake-up events from these sleep
states. These wake-up events can be generated from the power button, LAN activity, and scheduled events.
NOTE
The HP Netserver’s power management policies (transitions between various power
states) and the user options are specific to the particular ACPI-compliant NOS
installed on the Netserver. If your NOS is ACPI-compliant, refer to the power
management features in the instructions provided for more information.
The HP Netserver’s power button can be configured to initiate a graceful shutdown of the NOS rather than
an immediate shutdown of the power supply. The power button configurations are dependent on the user
interface provided by the ACPI-compliant NOS. While power management is under the control of the ACPIcompliant NOS, the HP Netserver’s power button is capable of an override in case of a non-responsive NOS.

Chapter 1
6
General Information
NOTE
The HP Netserver power button will force a power down without waiting for the NOS
to gracefully shut down the Netserver, if the power button is pressed and held more
than four seconds.
CAUTION
If the power button override is used, there is a strong possibility that data will be
corrupted or lost.
2 System Information
Introduction
This chapter provides information on mass storage, connector pin-outs, accessory guidelines and system
specifications.
Mass Storage
The HP Netserver LP 2000r comes standard with an IDE CD-ROM and a flexible disk drive with some
configuration of SCSI hard disk drives. The internal mass storage cage can hold up to 6 total SCSI drives.
Mass Storage Guidelines
• General Guidelines
◊
Use care when unpacking and handling the SCSI disk drives. The hard disk drives are very
susceptible to mechanical shock and can be easily damaged by a drop as short as onequarter of an inch.
◊
Do not stack drives.
◊
The Netserver may have up to 6 Hot Swap SCSI hard disk drives (HDD). A flexible disk
drive and CD-ROM drive are standard on all models of the HP Netserver LP 2000r.
◊
If a backup tape drive is used, it should be connected externally using the external 68-pin
SCSI connector at the rear of the Netserver.
• IDE Devices
◊
The embedded IDE controller is an Enhanced-IDE dual channel controller and provides two
connectors (IDE-1 and IDE-2) for IDE devices. (Only IDE-1 is used.)
◊
The IDE CD-ROM has only one connector on the cable from the primary channel (IDE-1)
connector.
◊
A secondary IDE connector (IDE-2) is available on the system board, but is not used.
• SCSI Device Selection
◊
Use only HP LVD low profile (1 inch) SCSI 3.5-inch hard disk drives in the Hot Swap drive
slots.
◊
Ensure the SCSI devices you install in Hot Swap slots do not have terminations installed.
The Hot Swap backplane provides automatic termination for any unused slots. The HP Hot
Swap SCSI drives come set without device ID or termination. Do not change these settings.
◊
Do not use high voltage differential (HVD) SCSI devices on either of the SCSI channels.
Using these devices will damage the backplane and render the SCSI drive slots inoperable.
◊
The embedded dual-channel Ultra-160M SCSI controller includes connectors for SCSI
channels A and B.
◊
Channel A is used for connecting to the two SCSI backplane boards. The standard SCSI
cable has one 68-pin, high-density connector for connecting to SCSI backplanes.
7
Chapter 2
System Information
◊
Channel B is used to control external mass storage devices, including an external backup
tape drive. Channel B is connected to the external 68-pin SCSI connector on the rear of the
Netserver. It can also be connected to internal backplanes and used for duplex mode.
• SCSI Drive Addressing
◊
The SCSI drives in the Hot Swap slots are automatically assigned SCSI addresses
according to their drive slot location-not by SCSI addresses you may set. This is also the
case if you are using a RAID controller board. Do not set SCSI ID software settings or
jumpers on the SCSI drive’s controller board.
• SCSI Device Installation Order
◊
The six Hot Swap drive slots support various SCSI HDD configurations. Start from the top
left side when adding Hot Swap SCSI hard drives in the HP Netserver.
• Filler Panels
◊
Ensure that the empty SCSI HDD slots in the chassis have filler panels inserted before
powering on the Netserver to ensure proper airflow.
CAUTION
Thermal damage or excessive electromagnetic radiation may result if you operate
the HP Netserver without filler panels inserted in empty SCSI HDD slots.

Boot Priority
The Netserver's boot order should be considered when selecting a boot device. This is especially important if
you are installing a board that requires a high priority in the boot order. The board's boot priority is set by its
location in the boot order.
By default the Netserver searches for boot devices in this order:
1. IDE CD-ROM drive
2. Flexible disk drive
3. Embedded SCSI A channel (Hot Swap SCSI Drives), starting with SCSI ID 0
4. Embedded SCSI B channel (external SCSI Devices)
5. PCI slots 1, 2, and 3 (in that order)
6. Network connection
The embedded SCSI controller consists of two channels, A and B. Channel A is used to control the Hot
Swap SCSI hard drives (6). Channel B is used to control the external SCSI devices. On each SCSI channel,
the controller scans for a boot device starting at device ID 0 and works through the ID numbers. The
Netserver's embedded controller is always SCSI ID 7.
8
Chapter 2
NOTE
System Information
The boot order can be changed using the Netserver's (BIOS) Setup Utility and the
SCSI Select Utility.

** Both SCSI channels (A and B) can each support up to 15 devices; however, there are only enough internal
storage slots for six Hot Swap SCSI hard drives. Channel B is used to control external SCSI devices, typically a
SCSI tape backup device.
Hardware Mirroring
You may choose to mirror hard drives (RAID 0) in the HP Netserver's hot swap slots. Hardware mirroring can
help speed up disk access time.
To mirror hard drives in hardware, you need to install the HP NetRAID Controller board and use an additional
SCSI cable to connect the NetRAID board to the SCSI backplane connector. If you do not use HP's
NetRAID Controller board, make sure that you use a DAC with an LVD interface.
CAUTION
To prevent damage to the Hot Swap SCSI hard disk drives, do not use a HVD (high
voltage differential) DAC controller.
If you are mirroring hard drives using the HP NetRAID Controller board, refer to "Installing the Optional SCSI
Accessory Cable" in the HP Netserver LP 2000r User Guide for instructions on how to install the SCSI cable
to the SCSI backplane connector. Refer to the documentation provided by the HP NetRAID PCI Controller
board for external cabling requirements.
Duplexing Hard Drives
You may choose to duplex the drives in the HP Netserver's removable hard disk drive cage. The Netserver
supports an option to duplex the drives using the embedded dual channel SCSI controllers (SCSI A and B).
There must be at least two SCSI drives available in the hard disk drive cage to duplex the drives. The
Netserver also supports HP's NetRAID 1Si PCI Controller board to control the two duplexed channels.
9
Chapter 2
System Information
CAUTION
To prevent damage to the embedded SCSI controller, don't use a HVD (High
Voltage Differential) device.
External SCSI Connector
The HP Netserver LP 2000r can be configured to extend one of its SCSI channels (typically channel B) to an
external SCSI connector. This allows connection of additional mass storage devices to the second channel
of the Netserver’s embedded controller.
Memory Guidelines
• The HP Netserver LP 2000r only uses 133 MHz (PC133) SDRAM DIMMs, which are electrically
different from the EDO and PC100 SDRAM memory modules used in previous HP Netserver
models.
• DIMMs sizes supported are 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1 GB in any combination.
• Supported memory capacity ranges from 128 MB to 4 GB maximum
(1 GB DIMM in each of the 4 slots).
• DIMM sizes may be mixed on the system board and may be loaded in any order (1 through 4).
However, HP recommends starting at slot 1 and filling the slots in order with the largest size
first: 1, 2, 3, and 4.
• Open slots between DIMMs are permitted.
• When handling DIMMs, observe anti-static precautions to avoid damage.
Processor Configuration Guidelines
The HP Netserver LP 2000r supports a variety of processor speeds with an FSB (front side bus) speed of
133 MHz. The Netserver supports processor speeds at 866 MHz, 933 MHz and 1 GHz.
NOTE
Some processor speeds listed for this HP Netserver may not be supported. For the
latest support information, visit the HP web site:
http:/www.hp.com/netserver.
• Both processors must be the same processor type and have the same product number, which
insures the same clock speed, cache size, and FSB speed.
• The processors must operate at the designated speed stated by the product type on the
processor.
• Use only processor upgrade kits with the same HP product number.
This ensures processor type, clock speed, and cache size are the same.
• Ensure a processor is installed in the primary processor (CPU 1) socket before installing a
processor in the secondary socket (CPU 2).
10
Chapter 2
System Information
Accessory Board Guidelines
The HP Netserver LP 2000r provides up to three 33 MHz, 32/64 bit, 5V PCI slots which are located on an
extension board.
Tested PCI Boards
For a list of tested PCI boards, check for compatibility under the Hardware Tested Products list for the HP
Netserver LP 2000r under the Service and Support topic for the specific NOS used in the Netserver at HP’s
web site:
http://www.hp.com/netserver/support/compatibility
CAUTION
Some accessory board outputs may exceed U.S. National Electrical code (NFPA
70) Class 2 or limited power source limits and must use appropriate inter-connecting
cabling in accordance with the National Electrical Code. (All HP boards comply with
Class 2.)
IRQ Settings
The IRQ settings are automatically assigned and don't require user intervention. The HP Netserver uses the
Plug-and-Play feature of the PCI boards to correctly assign its resources automatically.

4 Diagnostics
Diagnostic Tests
When the server boots, a series of tests are displayed on the screen. The number of tests displayed
depends on the configuration of the server. The following are the kinds of errors a user might get with the HP
Netserver.
• Built-in diagnostic Error Messages.
• BIOS and other error messages. These are errors detected by the system BIOS outside the
built-in diagnostics or application errors.
To see the Power On Self Tests (POST):
• The HP Netserver must be functionally able to run the diagnostics.
• The video subsystem must be functional.
• The keyboard must be functional.
NOTE
BIOS ROM version number is displayed on the monitor screen during power-up.
Diagnostics Description
The diagnostics (Power On Self Test "POST") run automatically each time the Netserver is powered on.
These diagnostics, which reside in the BIOS ROM, isolate server-related logic failures and indicate the board
or component that needs to be replaced, as indicated by the Error Messages. Most Netserver hardware
failures will be accurately isolated by the diagnostic
WARNING
You should always turn off the power and disconnect the power cord(s) to the
Netserver before attempting to remove the cover and touch the internal
components. Failing to do so can expose you to electric shock and the server's
components to damage.
HP Netserver DiagTools
The purpose of hardware diagnostic software is to provide tools for checking hardware problems. By design,
diagnostic software executes simple tests of each hardware component. Usually, such tests assure that
hardware is not the source of Netserver problems. This allows the user to eliminate hardware as the cause of
the problem and to focus on operating system configuration parameters, network connections, and
application software configuration parameters as the source of the problem.
If hardware problems are confirmed, the diagnostic software program can sometimes detect and diagnose
the subsystem or specific Netserver component causing of the problem. In addition, diagnostic tools can
capture information that allows support personnel to quickly assess the condition of the Netserver.
In order to be effective, diagnostic software tools must be used in the context of a wider troubleshooting
procedure.

Chapter 4
Diagnostics
DiagTools Capabilities
DiagTools for HP Netservers is a set of off-line diagnostic tests, including tests for system and processor
components, memory and storage elements, ports, and input/output devices. DiagTools is supplied on the
HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM.
The user prepares DiagTools software for use by transferring it to diskette. Then the DiagTools diskette is
used to boot the server. A basic suite of tools checks key Netserver components, and a menu of advanced
tests is available for in-depth testing.
DiagTools has the ability to test the following components:
l
system board
l
processors
l
memory modules
l
hard disk drives
l
flexible disk drives
l
keyboards
l
parallel ports
l
CD-ROM drives
l
video monitor
DiagTools is an off-line diagnostic. Off-line diagnostics do not use the main operating system (OS) of the HP
Netserver. The alternate DiagTools OS has far fewer features than the full-fledged OS. Thus, its capabilities
are limited to a set of basic tests and a series of advanced tests. In addition, DiagTools does not use any
tests that might write over or destroy user data. Tests that require user inputs or decisions are left to the
advanced series of tests.
You can use DiagTools to perform the tasks listed below:
• display a high-level inventory of the Netserver under test
• save and print a detailed inventory of hardware components
• conduct a basic test of components listed in the Netserver inventory
• display “PASSED” or “FAILED” overall results of basic tests
• record detailed test results of basic Netserver tests
• display a menu of advanced tests
• select and run one or a series of advanced tests
• add the record of results of advanced tests to the record of basic tests
• view a list to locate the meaning of a specific error code
• view one or more steps to help confirm and isolate error conditions
• browse the Support Ticket, which contains the detailed inventories and test results
• add comments to the Support Ticket
24
Chapter 4
Diagnostics
About Error Messages
A hexadecimal number designates each error message reported by DiagTools; a short note on the type of
error; and a list of one or more steps the user can take in response. When you run a test, it exercises many
aspects of the hardware, so the number of possible error messages exceeds 300. Most of these are
encountered rarely, if ever.
Error codes can be viewed on line from the DiagTools User menu within the advanced series of tests, or you
can refer to Chapter 3 of the HP Netserver DiagTools Error Reference and User Guide.
Advantages and Limitations of Hardware Diagnostics
Off-line diagnostic software is useful in making sure that hardware has been eliminated as the cause for
possible Netserver problems. Such diagnostic tools can easily be shipped with a server, and they are
relatively easy to use.
Only experienced personnel knowledgeable of its limitations should use off-line diagnostic software.
Some limitations are:
• booting the Netserver from the diagnostics diskette
• no access to operating system error logs, since the OS is not operating at the same time as the
diagnostic tools
• limited ability to test only a single component at a time
• inability to indicate problems with wrongly configured Netservers or network
Introduction
If you are having problems installing your HP Netserver, there are a number of different tools available for
troubleshooting, including the information provided in the following topics in this chapter.
• HP Netserver Online Documentation CD-ROM contains the following information in the HP

Common Installation Problems
The following sections contain general procedures to help you locate installation problems. If you need
assistance, HP recommends contacting your reseller first. If you need to get assistance from HewlettPackard, refer to Warranty and Support document provided with the Netserver.
WARNING
Before removing the cover, always disconnect the power cord(s) and unplug
telephone cables. Disconnect telephone cables to avoid exposure to shock hazard
from telephone ringing voltages. Disconnect the power cord(s) to avoid exposure to
high energy levels that may cause burns when parts are short-circuited by metal
objects such as tools or jewelry.
Troubleshooting Sequence
To troubleshoot problems during installation, do the following:
• First, ensure the HP Netserver is configured properly.
Most Netserver problems are the result of incorrect Netserver and SCSI configurations.
• Verify all cables and boards are securely plugged into the appropriate connectors or slots.
• If it is a network-related error, determine if the Netserver has enough memory and hard disk
drive capacity.
Refer to the network operating system (NOS) manual.
• Remove all added options to ensure you have isolated the problem to basic Netserver or its
options.
Always replace one option, and only one option, at a time.
NOTE
If the Netserver has a large amount of memory installed, it may take 30 seconds for
the first screen to display.
Netserver Will Not Power On
Follow these steps if the power/activity light does not light green after you press the power-on button, or the
Netserver will not power on properly.
NOTE
26
If the heatsink is not properly installed on the processor or the cooling fan is not
connected to the fan power connection, the Netserver will automatically shut down
within 10 seconds and provide no error messages, error codes, beep codes, or
video display.
Chapter 4
Diagnostics
1. Remove the AC power cord, wait 15 seconds, reconnect the power cord, and try again.
2. Ensure all cables and the power cord(s) are firmly plugged into the proper receptacles.
3. If the Netserver is plugged into a switched multiple-outlet box, ensure the switch on the outlet
box is turned on.
4. Plug a different electrical device (such as a printer) into the power outlet, and turn it on to verify
if the fault is with the power supply.
5. Verify the power supply is connected to the system board.
6. Verify the front power switch is connected to the system board.
Problems after Netserver is Powered On
If you think it is a hardware error, follow these steps and refer to "Hardware Problems" later in this chapter.
1. Log users off the network and power-down the HP Netserver.
2. Remove the Netserver's cover.
WARNING
Before removing the cover, always unplug telephone cables and disconnect the
power cord(s). Unplug telephone cables to avoid exposure to shock hazard from
telephone ringing voltages. Disconnect the power cord(s) to avoid exposure to high
energy levels that may cause burns when parts are short-circuited by metal objects
such as tools or jewelry.
3. Simplify the HP Netserver configuration to the required minimum, removing all third-party
options.
For example, reduce the Netserver to the monitor, one flexible disk drive, one CD-ROM drive,
one SCSI hard disk drive, keyboard, mouse, and one NIC.
4. Power on the Netserver to start the boot process.
5. If the Netserver will not complete the boot process:
a. Consult the troubleshooting steps in the section "Hardware Problems" later in this chapter.
b. If you get an error message or beep code, refer to the following section "Error Messages".
c. Clear the CMOS memory and reboot.
Refer to "Clearing the CMOS Configuration" later in this chapter.
6. If you have completed a boot of the Netserver successfully, reinstall the third-party options one
at a time, checking the Netserver after installing each option.

Chapter 4
Diagnostics
Error Messages
There are three kinds of error messages; two types appear during the POST process and the third is not a
visual message, but an audible message (beep codes). Any one of these three types of error messages
could point to a problem which might prevent the Netserver from completing the boot process. These are:
• Error messages (reverse video) – These text messages display in black text on white
background and can provide more information on screen.
Press the [Enter] key to see a definition of the message and what action to take to remedy the
problem. A sample of these messages appear in Table 4-1.
• Power On Self Test (POST) codes - These display in normal video (white text on black
background) and may be a text message or an alpha numeric code. If an error with a text
message occurs during the POST, details of the error are displayed. Follow the instructions on
the screen. If an alpha-numeric code appears, refer to Table 4-2 later in this chapter.
• Beep Codes – These are series of audible beeps, which occur during the boot process before
the video display can initialize allowing the visual messages of the POST routines to appear.
Refer to the Table 4-3 later in this chapter.
No Error Messages Displayed On Screen
General Checks:
1. Listen for beep codes.
If you hear a series of beeps refer to Beep Codes in Table 4-3 later in this chapter.
If no beep codes are heard, continue with the next step.
2. Verify all external cables and power cords are firmly plugged in.
3. Verify the power outlet is working.
4. Verify the Netserver and monitor are turned on.
The power-on indicator should be illuminated.
5. Verify the display's contrast and brightness settings are correct.
6. Verify all internal cables are properly connected and all boards firmly seated.
7. Verify the processor is securely seated in its socket.
8. Verify the heatsink is firmly latched on the top of the processor.
9. Verify the DIMMs are installed correctly and fully seated.
10. Verify the DIMM notches are aligned to the keys in the DIMM connector.
After Installing an Accessory:
1. Turn off the monitor, the Netserver, and any external devices.
2. Unplug all cords from the power outlet.
3. Remove the cover.

General Netserver Problems
No lights are on and no error message appears
If the Netserver does not work (no lights are on, including backlighting on models with LCDs) and no error
message appears, check the following:
1. Verify that power is good and available.
2. Make sure that the Netserver is turned on (the power-on light should be green and the fans
should be on).
3. Turn the Netserver off and unplug the power cords. Wait 30 seconds and plug the power cords
in and turn the Netserver on. Verify the failure.
4. Verify all boards are installed properly and seated firmly in the slots with cables firmly
connected.
5. If the Netserver stopped working after you installed a new accessory, remove the accessory
and turn on the server. If the Netserver now works, go to step 8.
6. If the Netserver still does not work, remove all accessories that you have installed (do not
remove the flexible or hard disk drives) and turn on the server.
7. If the Netserver now works, turn off the Netserver; add one accessory at a time to determine
which one is causing the problem. Turn on the Netserver after installing each board or option.
When the problem returns, the last board or option installed is defective.
8. If you have added any memory, make sure that the modules are seated properly on the
processor board.
The application or operating system is not responding properly
1. In Netserver models with accessible cache feature, determine if the memory cache feature is
turned on or off.
Memory cache may need to be turned off for some older software. It may also need to be turned
off for those accessory boards that have on-board firmware, and for those boards that use
memory-mapped I/O.
2. If necessary, turn off the memory cache feature. Check the state of memory cache and, if
necessary, disable it:
a. Push [F2] during the boot process
b. Go to configuration and turn off Memory Caching
The Netserver stops working (hangs)
Typically, if the Netserver hangs before the end of the POST completes, the problem is probably a hardware
failure. If the Netserver hangs after the POST completes, the problem is probably due to an incorrectly
configured or corrupt driver, operating system, or application program, or a media (disk drive) error.
52
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
If the Netserver stops working, try the following:
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist before you continue.
2. Turn the Netserver off and unplug the power cords. Wait 30 seconds and plug the power cords
in and turn it on. Verify the failure.
3. If the problem persists, replace the system board.
4. Once a problem has been found with a part, verify that it is the problem (or the only problem) by
reinstalling the part and replicating the error.
The Netserver does not start (boot)
Locate the memory modules (SIMMs/DIMMs).
NOTE
The POST error messages reflect which modules are defective and should be
replaced.
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist before you continue.
2. Power the Netserver off and on (rather than using Ctrl+Alt+Del) as it is a more complete
system reset.
3. On Netservers with diagnostic LEDs near the DIMM sockets, note any blink codes.
4. If the POST reports a problem, check the error against the Error Messages and correct the
problem.
5. Verify the video subsystem is configured correctly.

AC power cords from AC source outlet to server
◊
DC Power supply cables to all Netserver PCBs
◊
DC power supply cables to disk drives and/or mass storage cages
4. If the fans aren't audible and the above steps are verified, check that power is getting to all fans.
HP Netservers have multiple fans. All fans run when power is turned on; all are off when the
power is off.
With the power supply connected to the system board, check the power supply's voltages.
5. If voltages are not present:
a. Turn off AC power.
b. Disconnect the power cords for 5 minutes in order to reset the power supply's circuitry.
Turn on AC power again. If power is still not getting to the system board, replace the power
supply (or power supply module on some Netserver models).
6. If power is getting to the fan but the fan isn't working, replace the fan (or replace the power
supply in Netserver models with fans incorporated in the power supply).
7. If the problem continues, replace the power supply module.
8. If, after replacing the power supply, the problem persists:
a. Remove all accessory boards, including any hard disk drive controller board or the video
board the customer might have installed, and reboot the Netserver.

8. Check the monitor display to see if the system memory count takes place correctly.
a. Turn the Netserver off and then on. Check to see if the memory is counted during the
Netserver boot. If no count occurs, go to Step 10.
b. Check to see if the count occurs in the color appropriate for the monitor.
If the count occurs in the wrong color, the problem may be with the video subsystem, the
monitor, or the monitor cable. (Continue with the troubleshooting steps.)
9. If you are using a video screen saver utility and the screen goes blank while using the keyboard,
you may be using an application that turns off the screen even when you are using the
keyboard. Refer to the manual that came with the screen saver utility.
10. Ensure the memory modules (DIMMs) are correctly seated in their slots. You may want to
remove and reinstall each memory module to ensure it does not cause the problem. Verify the
correct type, size, and combinations of modules for this model Netserver are installed.
11. To see if the display is functioning:
a. Turn off the monitor and the server.
b. Disconnect the video cable from the video connector.
c. Turn on the monitor.
Monitor Notes:
◊
When most EGA and VGA monitors are disconnected from the video connector, if the
monitor is working, the screen is white.
◊
When some monitors (such as HP high-resolution monitors) are disconnected from the video
connector, the monitor may be working, although the screen is black.
◊
If the display is black or white when it should be in color, check the monitor cable to see if a
pin is bent. If a pin is bent, slowly but carefully straighten the pin. Replace the cable if the pin
cannot be straightened successfully.
◊

video board.)
16. If the monitor displays a badly scrambled image that looks to be the current screen image, then
the monitor is not synchronizing correctly.
◊
If a video board is installed, replace it with a known good one. The video timing setting on
the board may be bad.
◊
If it is the on-board video, replace the system board.
17. If a video board is installed and the built-in video is used:
a. Make sure the video board/built-in video combination is supported. Usually, two video
systems (for example, internal video and a video adapter board) cannot be used at the same
time.
b. If there is still a problem, make sure the board is seated correctly.
c. If there is still a problem, remove the video adapter board, and enable the internal video
system. Verify the problem.
18. If a message appears such as "INVALID CONFIGURATION", run the Setup Utility and press
[F2] during the boot process (or boot the HP Netserver Navigator CD-ROM) to confirm the
Netserver video configuration. Make sure other accessory boards do not use the same memory
addresses as the HP video system.
19. If the problem is isolated to the built-in video system, replace the system board.
20. Once a suspect part has been found, verify it is the problem by reinstalling the part and
duplicating the error.

◊
Radiated Interference: Sources include communications and radar installations, radio/TV
broadcast transmitters, and hand-held receivers.
◊
Airborne Contaminants: Sources include dust, smoke, and ashes. Steam from duplication
equipment may result in intermittent disk errors.
Symptom:
• The Netserver won't boot from the CD-ROM
Use the Setup Utility to make sure the CD-ROM drive is bootable:
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist and Boot Device Priority
2. Run the Setup Utility.
3. Enable support for bootable CD-ROM.
4. Save and exit the utility.
SCSI Problems
Symptom:
• The external SCSI subsystem does not work after installation
If the external SCSI subsystem does not work after installation, do the following:
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist and read Mass Storage Guidelines.
2. Run the DiagTools and verify the integrity of the SCSI buses, and other switch settings on the
external storage devices are correct. Verify that each SCSI device is assigned a unique SCSI
ID.
3. Refer to the documentation that came with the SCSI devices for any specific information on
installing them.
4. Ensure all installed SCSI controllers are installed and configured correctly.
5. For any SCSI devices installed in an enclosure external to the Netserver chassis, make sure
that Ultra SCSI is disabled on this controller. SCSI devices external to the Netserver chassis are
supported in Fast SCSI mode only.
6. Check the SCSI cables for problems that may have been caused by recent computer
maintenance, hardware upgrades, or physical damage.
7. Check the ROM BIOS version to make sure it is the most recently issued version. Booting the
most recent version of the HP Netserver Navigator CD-ROM will automatically report if the
BIOS is not current and needs updating (flashing). Follow the instructions in the screen to
update the BIOS.
8. Check that the external SCSI subsystem BIOS is being executed properly.
◊
When you start the server, the incrementing count of the RAM appears on the screen, then
the external SCSI BIOS displays a banner and a copyright notice.
◊
The BIOS then checks for valid devices on the SCSI bus, and reports which devices are
found. If you have installed and configured the SCSI devices correctly, you will see a list
confirming all SCSI devices installed in the Netserver.
◊
If the banner is not displayed, the external SCSI controller is not recognized.
61
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
9. Verify the SCSI bus is terminated at the SCSI Backplane.
10. Ensure no device is set to SCSI ID7; this is the SCSI ID used by the SCSI controller.
11. Verify all SCSI devices are either single-ended or differential SCSI devices (depending on the
Netserver model), and that any bus does not contain both types.
12. Verify the SCSI hard disk drive that loads the operating system is set to the lowest SCSI
address (usually set to 0).
13. If a second hard disk drive is connected to the SCSI cable, check it for proper SCSI address,
SCSI cable connection, proper power, and jumper settings.
14. Disconnect all SCSI devices except the integrated SCSI adapter and the drive at SCSI address
0, and try again. If this fails, try substituting a known good SCSI adapter board and a good hard
disk drive.
Symptom:
• The SCSI BIOS has trouble loading
If the Netserver has trouble loading the SCSI BIOS, do the following:
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist before you continue.
2. If you installed more than one SCSI controller, make sure that the BIOS of all SCSI controllers
are disabled except for the boot controller. This lets the SCSI BIOS for the boot controller load.
3. Determine what the boot device priority is for the Netserver model. Verify that the boot device is
in the right place in the priority.
Symptom:
• The SCSI subsystem does not work at installation
An incorrect configuration and not faulty hardware cause many SCSI problems. If the SCSI subsystem does
not work after installation, do the following:
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist and Mass Storage Guidelines before you continue.
2. Run the DiagTools and verify the integrity of the SCSI buses, and other switch settings on the
external storage devices are correct. Verify that each SCSI device is assigned a unique SCSI
ID.
3. If you don't see the SCSI BIOS banner during Netserver start:
"Symbios, Inc. SDMS(TM)V4.0 PCI SCSI BIOS, PCI Rev. 2.0, 2.1"
"Copyright 1995, 1998 Symbios, Inc."
◊
Check the cable connections.
◊
Check the SCSI termination.
4. Run the Setup Utility or SCSI Configuration Utility and verify the SCSI host bus adapter
(HBA) is properly configured.
The HBA is usually SCSI ID 7.
5. If you installed more than one SCSI adapter, verify each adapter is set to a separate BIOS
address; or disable the BIOS on all of the adapters except one.
6. For each device, verify;
62
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
◊
The device has a unique SCSI address.
◊
In general, when selecting an address for a drive (default address is 0), select as low a SCSI
address as possible.
◊
The device's jumpers are set according to the device documentation.
◊
The hard disk activity light cable (for non-hot-swap devices) is properly installed.
7. Check that the primary SCSI hard disk drive is set to the lowest address (usually set to 0). Each
device (the HBA is also a device) must have a unique and separate SCSI ID number. If the
device is a boot drive, then the SCSI ID should be 0.
8. If another hard disk drive is connected to the SCSI bus, check it for unique address, SCSI cable
connection, and power connection.
9. Check the SCSI bus cable for correct orientation, alignment, and seating on the SCSI adapter
and the SCSI device.
10. Check for the correct Hewlett-Packard internal and external SCSI cables.
11. Check that all SCSI devices are connected to power, and power-on all SCSI devices before or
at the same time as the Netserver to ensure a stable SCSI bus.
12. Watch the boot screen for all SCSI devices to be displayed. For example, in a Netserver with 1
SCSI controller and 2 hard disk drives (one with ID 0 and one with ID 1), if a valid device is
found at device address 0, but not at address 1, you would see these device validation lines on
the boot screen:
Channel x, SCSI ID #n - id info - Drive C: (80h)
If you see this message:
a. Verify that the SCSI hard disk drive is set to address 1.
b. Check the SCSI bus cable for correct orientation, alignment, and seating on the host adapter
and the hard disk drive.
c. Verify that terminators are installed at each end of the SCSI bus, but not on any other
devices. The hot swap cage printed circuit board has automatic termination that disconnects
when a cable is attached.
d. Verify all SCSI devices on the bus are appropriate for that bus (only single-ended SCSI
devices on the single-ended bus; only differential SCSI devices on the differential bus).
13. If the Netserver still fails to recognize the SCSI drive, disconnect all SCSI devices except the
host adapter and the drive at SCSI address 0 and try again. If the Netserver fails, try
substituting a known good hard disk drive.
14. If the SCSI BIOS has properly identified device 0 and has installed it as drive C, but cannot find
a device at address 1, and in addition, if no further messages are displayed, it indicates the
Netserver cannot load the operating system from device 0, check the following:
a. If a second hard disk drive is connected to the SCSI bus, check it for proper address
selection, SCSI cable connection, and proper power.
b. Partition the hard disk drive if required.
15. Use only SCSI devices without built-in terminators.
The HP Netserver embedded controllers are terminated automatically on the hot swap cage or
at the end of the SCSI cable. If you are installing a SCSI device that uses a built-in terminator,
you must remove the terminator from the device before proceeding with the installation.
63
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
Use only the HP Netserver SCSI cables for the SCSI hot swap subsystem.
16. Verify all SCSI devices on the bus are appropriate for that bus (only single-ended SCSI devices
on the single-ended bus; only differential SCSI devices on the differential bus).
17. Disconnect all SCSI devices except the SCSI adapter and the drive at SCSI address 0, and try
again. If this fails, try substituting a known good SCSI adapter and disk drive.
18. Use the Setup Utility to check for resource conflicts, especially if new boards or accessories
have been added.
Symptom:
• The SCSI subsystem stops working
If the SCSI subsystem should stop working, do the following:
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist and Mass Storage Guidelines before you continue.
2. Run DiagTools. Verify that the SCSI ID and other switch settings are correct and get specific
information or verification that the problem is the SCSI bus.
3. If an accessory board was added recently, check if there is a resource conflict between the new
board and an existing accessory board. Also, if you have changed the options on an existing
board, there may be a resource conflict.
a. Remove the new board and restart the computer. If this corrects the problem, the board is
either defective or it is trying to use a system resource used by the SCSI subsystem.
b. Check if the board is using memory, I/O addresses, or interrupt lines that are also used by
the SCSI subsystem.
4. Check to see if there have been recent changes to any software. For example, has anyone
moved, removed, or changed the configuration files or drivers? Refer to the software
documentation for more information.
5. If you suspect hardware failure and there are no system error messages, check each
component associated with the failure. Equipment failure is probably the most unlikely reason
for a SCSI subsystem failure.
Processor Problems
If a problem exists with the Netserver processor;
1. Remove and reseat the processor module(s).
2. Replace each of these components, one-at-a-time, with a known-good component, and retest
the Netserver:
•
Processor
•
Terminator (if so equipped)
•
Heatsink
CAUTION
Do not push on the processor components; push only on the edge. Pushing on the
device may damage it.
3. Check the event log for indication of processor overheating.
4. If the fault persists, replace the system board.
64
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
Memory Problems
The memory modules are DIMMs.
NOTE
If the POST (displayed at power-on time) indicates a defective memory module,
replace it.
1. Review the Troubleshooting Checklist before you continue.
2. If memory problems are being experienced, power the Netserver off and on. This performs a
"cold" restart, rather than a "warm" restart (as it does when you press Ctrl+Alt+Del).
3. Check the BIOS event log (available on certain Netserver models) for messages indicating
memory errors.
4. Run the DiagTools memory test.
5. Reseat the memory modules.
6. To check that the modules are installed and configured correctly:
a. Run the Setup Utility and check the configuration.
b. Install one known good DIMM. If you still receive an error, replace the system board.
If the error goes away, add another DIMM and reboot again. Continue this process until you
have installed all DIMMs or you experience a failure.
c.
Replace the defective DIMM.
7. Once a suspect part has been found, verify the cause of the problem by reinstalling the part and
attempting to duplicate the error. Also install it in another memory socket to confirm whether or
not the socket is defective.
Network Interface Card Problems
See the appropriate Network Interface Card documentation.
Symptom:
• If the adapter can't connect to the network
1. Make sure the cabling is installed properly.
2. Most hub and switch connections require straight-through cable; consult their documentation. If
you're directly connecting two computers (with no hub or other device), use a “crossover” cable.
3. Verify there are no resource conflicts between the NIC and any other accessories in the
Netserver. Check the Setup Utility.
4. Check the LEDs on the adapter at the back of the computer to see if any show activity. No lit
LEDs probably indicate a bad network cable, hub connection or other network error.
5. Ensure you're using the latest and correct drivers. Verify the drivers are intended for this
adapter.
6. Ensure the port on the switch or hub (or other device) has the same duplex setting as the
adapter.
65
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
7. If you configured the adapter for full duplex, make sure the switch port is also configured for full
duplex. Setting the wrong duplex mode can degrade performance, cause data loss, or result in
lost connections.
8. Test the adapter as directed in the installation tasks for each operating system. Also check the
“README” files on the support disk.

The empty processor socket must have a terminator installed if you are not installing
a processor into the empty socket.
8. If you intend to use the heatsink again for a new or replacement processor you must insert a
new thermal patch on the bottom of the heatsink.
Refer to the heatsink installation procedure later in this chapter.
CAUTION
To prevent damage to the replacement processor, remove the old patch and install
a new thermal patch to the bottom of the heatsink before installing it on the new
processor.
The heatsinks are not reusable, unless the thermal patch has been replaced each
time the heatsink is removed. Each time the heatsink is used on the processor,
some of the thermal material is removed from the thermal patch, which could cause
poor heat transfer and overheating.

Installing a Second Processor
This section provides the instructions for installing a second processor and its heatsink on the system board.
CAUTION
A processor can be damaged by static electricity. Take the following precautions:
• Leave the processor in the anti-static bag until you are ready to install it.
• Wear an anti-static wrist strap and use a static-dissipating work surface or
grounding mat connected to the chassis when handling components.
• Before removing a processor from the anti-static bag, touch a grounded,
unpainted metal surface to discharge static electricity.
1. Unpack the processor shipping box and check the contents against the packing list.
CAUTION
Do not unseal the anti-static bag, or remove the processor until you are ready to
install it.
2. Log off all users and backup files. Shut down the NOS according to the instructions in your NOS
documentation.
3. Press the power switch on the HP Netserver control panel when prompted by the operating
system.
Normally, this completes the shutdown procedure.
WARNING Power supplies continue to provide standby current to the Netserver until the power
is disconnected.
4. Disconnect the AC power cord.

5. Gain access to the system board:
a. Pull out the anti-tip foot at the bottom of the rack, then slowly slide the HP Netserver chassis
out from the rack as far as it can be extended.
b. Remove the cover.
c. Remove the air flow guide.
6. Ensure the processor speed of the second processor (CPU 2) is the same as the primary
processor.
If you are upgrading the second processor to a faster processor speed than the primary
processor, the primary processor must also be changed. Both processors must have the same
product number, which includes the same clock speed, cache size, and FSB speed.
The supported processors only perform at the rated speed indicated on the processor in the HP
Netserver.
7. Open the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) lever. Then lift the terminator out of the socket and place it
on anti-static surface or container.
To open the ZIF lever, pull the lever out away from the ZIF socket, and then raise it 90° to the
system board.

NOTE
Keep the terminator for future use. The terminator must be installed in the
secondary processor socket when only one processor is used, or the HP Netserver
will not operate properly.
8. Align the second processor over the empty processor socket.
CAUTION
Ensure that you align pin-1 of the processor with pin-1 of the processor socket, or
pin damage will occur.
9. Insert the second processor into the socket and close the ZIF lever to fully seat the processor.
You should hear the ZIF lever click when it closes properly.
NOTE
No speed switch settings are required for the supported 866 MHz, 933 MHz, or
1GHz processors. These processors rely on their own internal switch settings, and
not on system board switch settings.

Installing the Processor on the System Board
Installing the Heatsink
After installing a new processor, you need to install a heatsink on top of the processor. The thermal patch on
the bottom of the heatsink provides thermal bonding between the two components. The patch must be
replaced if the heatsink is removed (even temporarily) from the processor.
1. Remove the heatsink from the shipping container.
86
Chapter 6
Replacing Parts
2. Inspect the thermal patch. Replace the patch if it is damaged:
a. Ensure that you are grounded with a static-dissipating wrist strap.
b. Remove the damaged patch. If you are reinstalling a heatsink on a processor, use a lint-free
cloth to remove any thermal material remaining on top of the processor chip.
c. To install a new thermal patch, peel off the backing, and place the patch in the area marked
at the center of the heatsink.
CAUTION Heatsinks are not reusable unless the thermal patch is replaced each time the
heat sink is removed, even if it is temporarily removed and reinstalled on the
same processor.
3. Install the heatsink:
a. Orient the heatsink with the tool latch facing left. Then lower the heatsink squarely onto the
processor.
CAUTION Ensure the heatsink is seated properly on the processor. If the heatsink is
offset, there will be insufficient thermal contact with the processor, which may
result in overheating, data corruption, and permanent damage to the processor.
b. Hold the heatsink steady with one hand and press the hook latch down to connect it to the
tab. Then insert a flat-head screwdriver into the tool latch and press the latch down to
connect it to the tab.
4. Replace the air flow guide.
