NetServer Status:
The system is powered up.
The AC line is unplugged or the power supply

Connecting the HP NetServer to AC Power
When you connect the NetServer to an AC power source, the server temporarily
draws additional current. This occurs even when the system is in standby mode.
This "inrush current" is much greater than the server’s normal operating needs.
Generally, your external AC power source can handle the inrush current.
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 capacity, they may trip and thus prevent the
servers from powering up.
25
Chapter 2
Controls, Ports, and Indicators
When preparing your site for installation, allow for the additional inrush current.
Follow these circuit breaker recommendations before installing the server at your
site:
• In North America, use a 20-amp-minimum circuit with one NEMA AB1
class 14B breaker for each 16-amp Power Distribution Unit (PDU).
• In Europe:
◊
For a single HP NetServer in a rack, use a 15-amp-minimum circuit
with one IEC MCB C-type breaker for each 16-amp PDU.
◊
For multiple HP NetServers in a rack, use a 15-amp-minimum circuit
with one IEC MCB D-type breaker for each 16-amp PDU.
NOTE
Each 16-amp PDU can accommodate a maximum of two HP
NetServers.
When the proper power supply is available, connect the NetServer to the AC
power source.
Power-Up and Power-Down Procedures
Power-Up Procedure
1. Ensure the NetServer’s power cords are connected to a power source and to
the power block(s) on the rear panel.
2. Press the power switch.
CAUTION
26
The power supplies continue to provide standby voltage to the
NetServer until the power cords are disconnected.
Chapter 2
Controls, Ports, and Indicators
Power-Down Procedure
Follow this procedure when installing non-hot-swap and non-hot-plug
components, such as tape drives and non-hot-plug PCI boards.
1. Log off all users and back-up files.
2. Follow instructions in your network operating system (NOS)
documentation to gracefully shut down all networking software and
applications.
3. Press the Power switch to shut down the NetServer (see Figure 2-3).
Normally, this completes the procedure.
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, including a sleep state with a short
wake-up time, sometimes referred to as “standby” or “suspend” by various
operating systems. In this sleep state the NetServer appears to be off, indicated by
no display on the monitor and no activity for the CD-ROM or internal hard drives,
however, the power LED is slowly flashing and the fans are operating.
An additional sleep state supported by the NetServer is one 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 mentioned earlier, but the fans and
the power LED are also turned off. This sleep state's unique feature (and the
reason for its slower wake-up time) is that the NetServer's state (applications
running, screens open, etc.) just prior to hibernate has been saved to disk and must
be restored from disk upon wake-up. This method of restoring the NetServer's
operation is much faster than rebooting the NetServer, which would require
running all the start-up self-tests before starting the NOS.
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. The embedded Integrated
Remote Assistant also has the capability of waking up the NetServer.
27
Chapter 2
NOTE
Controls, Ports, and Indicators
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 respective 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 sleep state (Sleep
button) or a “soft off” or graceful shutdown of the NOS, rather than an immediate
shut down 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 ACPI-compliant NOS, the HP NetServer’s
power button is capable of an override in case of non-responsive NOS.
28
NOTE
The HP NetServer power button will force a power down
without waiting for the NOS to gracefully shut down, if the
power button is pressed and held for more than four seconds.
CAUTION
If the power button override is used, there is a strong
possibility of corrupted or lost data.

Installing Mass Storage Devices
Mass Storage Guidelines
Read this section prior to installing mass storage drives for a successful
installation.
Selecting SCSI Devices
Hot-Swap
Hot-swap mass storage consists of either low profile (1.0-inch) or half-height
(1.6-inch) drives. For the hot-swap shelves use only HP LVD SCSI 3.5-inch hard
disk drives. HP hot-swap drives come set for LVD SCSI operation and without
device ID or termination. Do not change these settings.
Non-Hot-Swap
For the non-hot swap shelves, use 3.5-inch or 5.25-inch single-ended (SE) SCSI
devices. This bay supports either two half-height or three low profile devices. You
can order HP mounting kits for removable media devices or trays for 3.5-inch
hard disk drives (both low profile and half-height). You may use narrow/wide
SCSI adapters on these devices.
SCSI Termination
The internal SCSI cable for the non-hot-swap bays is terminated. The cable(s) for
the hot-swap storage cage(s) is(are) not terminated. Do not interchange cables.
Hot-Swap Cage Configuration
A low profile drive fits within one slot. HP recommends you start configuring at
slot 1 (the slot nearest the bottom of the cage) to get optimum loading of the bus.
A half-height drive requires most of the space provided by two slots. Use a drive
spacer to close up the remaining space.
Figure 4-2 shows primary cage (SCSI A) and Figure 4-3 shows optional
secondary cage (SCSI B) configurations for the LH 6000r orientation. In
installations where the cage is not fully populated, add drives from the lowest
SCSI address (left most drive position) to the highest.
Figure 4-4 shows the configurations for duplex bus operation in the LH 6000r
orientation. Duplex bus operation requires the addition of the duplexing accessory.

CAUTION
2.
When installing more than one drive, do not stack drives on
your work surface. Hard disk drives are very susceptible to
mechanical shock and can be damaged by a drop as short as
one-quarter of an inch. Take care when unpacking and
handling the drive. If the drop would crack an egg, it will
damage the drive.
Drive spacers attach to the disk drive module with four small feet.
If you need to remove a drive spacer from a disk drive slot:
• Slide the drive spacer back, a fraction of an inch away from your body.
• Tilt up the front of the drive spacer to disengage the front two feet.

Chapter 4
Installing Mass Storage Devices
To install a non-hot-swap, mass storage device, such as a flexible tape drive,
CD-ROM drive, tape back-up drive or hard disk drive.
The installation procedure is the same for the rack-mount and the pedestal
NetServers once you gain access to the server.
1. Log off all users and gracefully shut down the network operating system
according to directions in your NOS documentation.
2. Power down the NetServer according to the instructions in Chapter 2,
"Controls, Ports, and Indicators."
3. Disconnect the power cords and cables and, if necessary, label each one to
support re-assembly.
CAUTION
The power supplies will continue to provide standby current
to the NetServer until the power cables are disconnected.
4. For both rack-mounted and pedestal models, follow the instructions in
Chapter 3, "Opening and Closing the HP NetServer," to gain access to
server.
5. Select an available shelf for the device and remove the filler panel.
6. If the device you are installing is the boot device, check the boot priority.
7. Mount the device on a mass storage tray following the directions included
with the tray.
8. Slide the module into the shelf opening and secure the tray using the two
mounting screws included with the tray.
9. Connect the cable from the power supply and the SE SCSI cable from the
I/O board to the device.
10. Follow the procedure in Chapter 3, "Opening and Closing the HP
NetServer," for closing up the server.
11. Reconnect power and cables.
12. Restore NetServer to normal operation.
Non-Hot-Swap SCSI Addressing
Each SCSI device must have a unique SCSI address. Each device connected to
either of the SCSI connectors must have a unique address (narrow devices may
use addresses 0-6; wide devices may use addresses 0-15, except address 7).
Address 5 in the hot-swap cage is reserved for the SAF-TE interface. This address
is also excluded when the secondary hot-swap cage is installed.
50
Chapter 4
Installing Mass Storage Devices
Connecting SCSI Sub-systems
The second LVD SCSI connector, bus B, can be used to connect to peripheral
sub-systems such as the HP RS/12 or DLT tape libraries.
CAUTION
Do not mix high voltage differential (HVD) driver and
receiver devices with the SE, LVD (Ultra2), or multi-mode
devices on the same SCSI bus.
Integrated HP NetRAID
The HP NetServer contains an integrated HP NetRAID controller, which puts the
power of the HP NetRAID series of DACs (disk array controllers) in the
NetServer with no additional hardware.
Refer to the Integrated HP NetRAID Controller Configuration Guide for complete
information. You can also find the guide on the following HP web site:
http://www.hp.com/go/netserver
Secondary Hot-Swap Mass Storage Cage
You can install a second hot-swap mass storage cage in the NetServer. For
information, refer to the HP NetServer LH 3000/3000r and LH 6000/6000r Mass
Storage Upgrade Guide.
Single and Dual SCSI Bus Configuration
You can configure each hot-swap mass storage cage to operate as:
l A single SCSI bus with up to six drives
l Two independent SCSI busses with up to three drives on each buss
(requires optional duplex board accessory kit)
The advantage of the dual bus configuration is that you can put the drives for boot
and mirror functions on one bus and the drives for data on another.

Guidelines
l Use the respective NOS software utility to:
◊
Ensure the correct software drivers for the PCI boards are loaded
◊
Verify correct operation
l Slots 1, 2, 3, and 4 are non-hot plugs; slots 5, 6, 7, and 8 are hot plugs.
l For optimal performance, add hot-plug boards to slots 7 and 8, which are
the fastest slots (66MHz and 64 bit).
l Consider the boot priority prior to installing accessory boards.
l You can configure the NetServer to boot from a PCI accessory board
instead of the onboard SCSI channels by putting the board in slot 1.
l You can configure the NetServer to boot from a PCI-based DAC inserted
into a PCI slot. Use the Symbios Configuration Utility to select a different
PCI slot when scanning for boot devices. Refer to Chapter 10,
"Configuring the HP NetServer."
l Slots 7 and 8 accept universal boards. Universal boards automatically
switch to accept power from +5.0 or +3.3 VDC.
l Do not attempt to install or remove non-hot plug PCI boards with the
NetServer in any kind of sleep state, or a system crash or hang may occur.
See Chapter 2, "Controls, Ports, and Indicators," in the "Sleep States"
section.
l Some accessory board outputs may exceed U.S. National Electrical code
(NFPA 70) Class 2 or power source limits and must use appropriate
interconnecting cabling in accordance with the National Electrical Code.
(All Hewlett-Packard boards comply with Class 2.)
60
Chapter 6
Installing Additional Boards
IRQ Settings
BIOS automatically assigns the IRQs (hardware interrupts) for each PCI slot and
embedded device in the NetServer during boot. These assignments trigger the
NOS to enable the APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller). APIC
takes advantage of the expanded set of non-conflicting IRQs for those accessory
boards requiring more than one IRQ per slot.
Boot Priority
Some accessory boards have preferred slot locations. If not, consider the boot
order when choosing the accessory board slot in which to install the board.
This is the default boot priority for the LH 6000r and LH 6000:
1. IDE CD-ROM drive with a bootable CD-ROM
2. Flexible disk drive with a bootable flexible disk
3. Embedded SCSI controller or integrated HP NetRAID controller
4. PCI boards in slots in descending order: 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1
You can change this boot order using the Setup utility. Press [F2] during the boot
process as described in Chapter 10, "Configuring the HP Server."
Tested PCI Boards and Drivers
For a list of tested PCI boards, check Configuration Assistant on the HP NetServer
Navigator CD-ROM, or look for the Hardware Tested Products List link for the
LH 6000r and LH 6000 under HP NetServer Service and Support for the NOS

You are not required to use the HP NetServer Navigator
CD-ROM to reconfigure your system after installing the new
processor. The NetServer detects the additional processors
automatically. However, HP recommends using the HP
NetServer Navigator CD-ROM that comes with the processor
upgrade kit to ensure you have the latest drivers and
information.
77
Chapter 7
Installing Additional Processors
Testing the Processor
After you power on the HP NetServer, check boot messages to see whether or not
the system detects the additional processor. If boot messages indicate that the
additional processor has not been found, check the installation of the processor
and the VRM and verify that the speed and cache size are correct.
Re-installing the NOS
You may have to re-install your Network Operating System in order to use the
additional processor. If you have gone from a single-processor to multi-processor
configuration, check your NOS documentation or the README First file and
Configuration Advisor utilities on the HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM.
This completes the installation of the additional processor.
Removing a Processor Module
Use the same procedure as above, and simply remove the processor module rather
than add it. Be sure to remove the associated VRM and keep it with the processor.
CAUTION
78
Replace the removed processor with a terminator/baffle.

installation.
l Extend the rack’s anti-tip foot from under the front of the rack or insure
that the anti-tip feature is installed (see Figure 8-2) prior to any work on
the rack to prevent rack tip-over, equipment damage, and injury.
WARNING
Lower the leveler feet at the four corners of the rack to
improve stability and prevent the rack from rolling away as
devices are inserted into their rack mounts. Failure to use the
anti-tip foot/device and leveler feet could result in serious
injury.
l Uneven mechanical loading within the rack can cause hazardous
conditions. Plan the placement of equipment in the rack to ensure balanced
loading.
CAUTION
80
If other rack components are to be mounted in the rack below
the HP NetServer, install those components before starting to
mount the NetServer.
Chapter 8

l Install components such as DIMMs and processors into the system board
assembly before rack-mounting the NetServer.
l Remove power supplies and hard drives before lifting the HP NetServer.
Always keep the following safety and environmental issues in mind, especially if
you install the HP NetServer in a non-HP rack environment:
• Maximum Recommended Ambient Temperature - The maximum
recommended ambient temperature of the room is 35°C (95° F).
• Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature - The ambient operating
temperature within a closed or multi-unit rack assembly may exceed the
room’s ambient temperature. Ensure the temperature within the rack itself
does not exceed 35°C (95° F).
81
Chapter 8
Installing the HP NetServer in an HP Rack System/E or Rack System/U
• Reduced Airflow - As you mount equipment in the rack, make sure that
you allow enough airflow for safe operation of the equipment. Observe the
minimum clearance dimensions listed in Appendix A, "Specifications."
• Circuit Overloading - Make sure that the total configuration of equipment
in the rack does not overload the supply circuit. To this end, check the
nameplate ratings on all equipment. Consider the effect of circuit
overloading on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
• Reliable Earth Grounding - Maintain reliable earth grounding of
rack-mounted equipment. Give particular attention to supply connections
that are not direct connections to the branch circuit: for example, the use of
power strips.

Alternative Rack Mounting
Rack-mounting Guidelines and Precautions
Observe the following guidelines and safety precautions during the rack-mount
installation.
l Extend the rack’s anti-tip foot prior to any work on the rack to prevent rack
tip-over, equipment damage, and injury.
WARNING
Lower the leveler feet at the four corners of the rack to
improve stability and prevent the rack from rolling away as
devices are inserted into their rack mounts. Failure to use the
anti-tip foot or the anti-tip device and leveler feet could result
in serious injury.
l Uneven mechanical loading within the rack can cause hazardous
conditions. Plan the placement of equipment in the rack to make sure that
this problem does not occur.
◊
Install components from the bottom up.
◊
Place the heaviest components on the bottom of the rack.
CAUTION
◊
If other rack components are to be mounted in the rack below
the HP NetServer, install those components before starting to
mount the HP NetServer.
Use HP Rack Assistant to plan the rack configuration and to check
power, weight, and stability of the configured rack. Download HP
Rack Assistant from:
http://netserver.hp.com/netserver/tools
l Install components such as DIMMs and processors into the system board
assembly before rack-mounting the HP NetServer.
l Remove power supplies and hard drives before lifting the HP NetServer.
Always keep the following safety and environmental issues in mind, especially if
you install the HP NetServer in a non-HP rack environment:
• Maximum Recommended Ambient Temperature - The maximum
recommended ambient temperature of the room is 35°C (95°F).
• Elevated Operating Ambient Temperature - The ambient operating
temperature within a closed or multi-unit rack assembly is likely to exceed
148
Chapter 13
Alternative Rack Mounting
the room’s ambient temperature. Ensure the temperature within the rack
itself does not exceed 35°C (95°F).
• Reduced Airflow - As you mount equipment in the rack, make sure that
you allow enough airflow for safe operation of the equipment.
• Circuit Overloading - Make sure that the total configuration of equipment
in the rack does not overload the supply circuit. To this end, check the
nameplate ratings on all equipment. Consider the effect of circuit
overloading on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
l Reliable Earth Grounding - Maintain reliable earth grounding of
rack-mounted equipment. Give particular attention to supply connections
that are not direct connections to the branch circuit: for example, the use of
power strips.
Preparing for Installation
You should plan the placement of your HP NetServer LH 6000r and other rack
components before proceeding with installation. Proper placement is vital for both
safety and operating efficiency.
The rack-optimized HP NetServer LH 6000r fits into 19-inch-wide EIA (Electrical
Industry Association) racks. Vertical space in the rack is measured in standard
EIA units. One EIA unit is 1.75 inches (44.45 mm). The HP NetServer LH 6000r
requires 8 EIA units of space.
STOP!
Read the HP NetServer Rack Installation Road Map before
installing the HP NetServer LH 6000r. The Roadmap contains
important information you need to know for installing
components in the rack.
Tools Required
The following tools are required to install the HP NetServer:
• Small adjustable open-end wrench
