Dell® PowerEdge® 6350 systems are feature-rich, enterprise-class server
systems that use Intel® Pentium® II Xeon™ microprocessor(s) with MMX™
technology and incorporate a high-performance PCI local bus.
The PowerEdge 6350 systems have been rack-optimized and designed for
better serviceability and increased reliability. The two panel doors on top of
the chassis allow easy access to the system board for performing processor,
memory, and expansion-card upgrades. The Dell-designed SCSI backplane
board and the hard-disk drive carriers eliminate the extensive cabling and drive
configuration usually required for a SCSI subsystem. The plastic drive rails on
the CD-ROM drive allow you to remove the drive without removing a single
screw.
A PowerEdge 6350 system can contain up to four Pentium II Xeon microprocessors. Each processor is housed in a single-edge contact (SEC) cartridge/
heat sink assembly mounted in a guide bracket on the system board, allowing
for greater heat dissipation. The processor has an internal operating frequency
of 400 MHz (or a higher speed when available) and an external operating
frequency of 100 MHz. Contact Dell for information about Dell-supported
microprocessor upgrades.
6\VWHP)HDWXUHV
In addition to the standard features found in a traditional personal computer,
Dell PowerEdge 6350 systems include the following new and/or advanced
features:
‡ One to four Intel Pentium II Xeon microprocessors with an internal operating frequency of 400 MHz (and higher speeds when available) and an
external bus speed of 100 MHz.
‡ A secondary (L2) cache of 512 KB, 1 MB, or 2 MB (for higher-speed microprocessors, when available) of SRAM is included within the SEC cartridge
that contains the microprocessor.
‡ Support for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) when two or more microprocessors are installed.
NOTE: Additional microprocessors must have the same internal operating
frequency and L2 cache size as the initial microprocessor(s). Not all
versions of the Pentium II microprocessor will work properly as additional
System Overview
1-1
microprocessors in this system; the upgrade kit from Dell contains the
correct version for this system.
‡ A minimum of 128 MB of system memory, upgradable to a maximum of
4 GB by installing combinations of 32-, 64- (when available), 128-, and
256-MB buffered EDO DIMMs in the 16 DIMM sockets on the memory
board.
‡ BIOS in upgradable flash memory on the PCI bus.
‡ Up to three hot-pluggable 1-inch SCSI hard-disk drives.
‡ Three redundant, hot-pluggable power supplies and a power-supply
paralleling board (PSPB).
‡ Four redundant system cooling fans.
‡ Seven PCI connectors, four 64-bit and three 32-bit.
‡ Three peer-to-peer PCI expansion subsystems.
‡ A VGA-compatible video subsystem with an ATI 3D RAGE PRO SVGA video
controller. This video subsystem contains 2 MB of SGRAM video memory
(nonupgradable).
‡ A National Semiconductor PC87309 super I/O controller that controls the
bidirectional parallel port, two serial ports, and the diskette drive in the
externally accessible front bay.
‡ Two Adaptec AIC-7890 Ultra2/low-voltage differential (LVD) SCSI host
adapters that support up to three 1-inch internal SCSI hard-disk drives via
the SCSI backplane board and SCSI hard-disk drive carriers.
The SCSI backplane automatically configures SCSI ID numbers and SCSI
termination on individual hard-disk drives, greatly simplifying drive installation. The backplane supports hot-pluggable SCSI hard-disk drive installation
and removal when used in conjunction with the PowerEdge Expandable
RAID controller.
‡ An Adaptec AIC-7860 Ultra/Narrow SCSI-III host adapter that supports the
CD-ROM drive.
‡ Server management circuitry that monitors operation of the system fans
as well as critical system voltages and temperatures. The server management circuitry works in conjunction with the HP OpenView Network Node
Manager Special Edition (NNM SE) and the Dell OpenManage™ Hardware
Instrumentation Package (HIP) software package.
‡ System board support for the Dell OpenManage Remote Assistant when
the optional Dell Remote Assistant Card version 2.0 (DRAC 2) is installed,
which provides additional local and remote server management.
For a complete list of system features, see “Technical Specifications” found later in
this chapter.

Two panel doors on the top of the system provide access to the system board,
memory board, microprocessors, and expansion cards. The right panel door
provides access to the expansion slots; the left panel door opens to the microprocessor and memory board (see Figure 1-6). The doors interlock so that the
keylock on the right-side panel door secures both doors and the fan assembly.
Follow these steps to open the computer panel doors:
1. If necessary, unlock the right panel door (see Figure 1-6).
2. Press the two slide latches to release the right top door and lift the door.
3. Lift the left door.
When closing the panel doors, close the left door first and then the right door
so that the right door overlays the left door. The doors must be in this position
for the keylock to secure both doors properly.

The PowerEdge 6350 system is unique in that live AC power is routed inside
the system. An AC routing cable (not the same cable as the AC power cable in
the next section) connects to the power receptacle at the back of the system
and runs along the inside of the left chassis wall to the PSPB (see Figure 4-23).
WARNING: The PSPB in the PowerEdge 6350 system connects to live AC
power via the AC routing cable. Before removing or servicing the system,
it is critical to make certain that AC power is disconnected from the back
of the system.
6HFXULQJWKH$&3RZHU&DEOH
To prevent accidental removal of the AC power cable from the power receptacle at the back of the chassis, a cable retainer maintains a slack loop that
protects the connection. The retainer can be either a metal clip attached to the
AC power receptacle (see Figure 1-7) or a plastic cable clamp that secures the
cable to the back of the chassis.

)LJXUH 0HWDO 6HFXULQJ &OLS IRU $& 3RZHU &DEOH
For a system that uses the metal securing clip, before removing the AC power
cable you must swivel the clip away from the cable as shown in Figure 1-7. For

The interface cables inside the chassis must be routed correctly to ensure that
the fan assembly (positioned over the cables) has room to fit fully into the
chassis. If you need to disconnect and remove any interface cables from the
system board, be sure to reinstall the cables in the order shown in Table 1-1,
with the first cable at the bottom.

System memory resides on a memory module card and consists of a
minimum of 128 MB of 72-bit buffered EDO memory. Memory can be
expanded up to 4 GB by installing combinations of 32-, 64- (when available),
128-, and 256-MB buffered EDO DIMMs on the memory module.
NOTE: DIMMs must be rated at 50 or 60 ns. With a mixture of 50- and 60-ns
DIMMs, system memory will run at 60 ns.
The memory module provides 16 168-pin DIMM sockets divided into four
banks, each consisting of four sockets labeled “DIMM A” through “DIMM D”
(see Figure 1-8). Memory upgrade guidelines are as follows:
‡ DIMMs must be installed one bank (four DIMMs) at a time, starting with
bank 1 and working toward bank 4. There should be no open banks
between populated banks.
‡ Within a bank, install DIMMs in the following order: DIMM A, DIMM B,
DIMM C, and DIMM D.
‡ DIMM sizes cannot be mixed within a memory bank. However, memory
banks can have different DIMM sizes from each other.
‡ Of the DIMMs to be installed in the system, install the size you have the
most of in the lowest-numbered bank(s), the less numerous size in the
next banks, and least numerous size in the highest-numbered banks being
used. For example, when installing four 256-MB DIMMs, eight 128-MB
DIMMs, and four 32-MB DIMMs, install the 128-MB DIMMs in banks 1
and 2. The 256- and 32-MB DIMMs can be installed in banks 3 and 4; it
does not matter which bank holds which size.

The Resource Configuration Utility (RCU) included with the system automatically configures installed PCI expansion cards. For more information on the
RCU, see Chapter 5, “Using the Resource Configuration Utility,” in the
Dell PowerEdge 6350 Systems User’s Guide.
The seven expansion-card slots include four 64-bit and three 32-bit PCI
expansion-card connectors located on the system board (see Figure 1-19).
The 64-bit slots support both 32- and 64-bit cards.

The video subsystem is built into the system board and consists of a PCI
VGA-compatible video subsystem with an ATI 3D RAGE PRO SVGA video
controller. The video subsystem contains 2 MB of SGRAM video memory,
which is not upgradable. Maximum resolutions are 1280 x 1024 with
256 colors, noninterlaced. The 1024 x 768 resolution provides 65,536 colors,
noninterlaced, and the 800 x 600 and 640 x 480 resolutions provide
16.7 million colors for true color graphics.

Through a 68-pin cable connection from the system board to the SCSI
backplane board, two integrated Adaptec AIC-7890 Ultra2/LVD SCSI host
adapters support up to three 1-inch SCSI hard-disk drives. The SCSI backplane
board automatically configures SCSI ID numbers and SCSI termination on
individual hard-disk drives, greatly simplifying drive installation. The integrated
SCSI controller resides on the PCI local bus for optimum performance.
System Overview

An integrated Adaptec AIC-7860 Ultra/Narrow SCSI host adapter attached to
the PCI bus supports the CD-ROM drive through a 50-pin connector on the
system board.
6&6,'ULYHV
Dell PowerEdge 6350 systems include a SCSI backplane board, which greatly
simplifies cabling and configuration for SCSI hard-disk drives. SCSI ID and
termination for SCSI hard-disk drives are both configured by the SCSI
backplane board, rather than on individual drives.
All Dell PowerEdge 6350 systems have an active terminator installed at the
end of the SCSI cable; therefore, all devices attached to the cable should have
their termination disabled.
NOTE: For maximum performance, install Ultra2/LVD drives exclusively.
Although you can install a mixture of Ultra2/LVD and Ultra hard-disk drives,
they will operate at the slower Ultra transfer rate.
6&6,+DUG'LVN'ULYH&RQILJXUDWLRQ*XLGHOLQHV
SCSI hard-disk drives are supplied by Dell in special drive carriers that fit in the
front-loading drive bays. SCSI hard-disk drives must be configured as follows:
‡ Disable termination on the drive. The SCSI backplane board provides
termination for the SCSI bus.
‡ Set the SCSI ID on the drive to 0. All hard-disk drive SCSI ID numbers are
set by the SCSI backplane board.
‡ Configure the drives so that the drive motors wait for a start unit
command from the SCSI host adapter before spinning.
&'520'ULYH&RQILJXUDWLRQ*XLGHOLQHV
CD-ROM drives should be set to SCSI ID 5, and their termination should be
disabled.

The three redundant power supplies are installed vertically in a row at the front
of the chassis. They can be installed and lifted out of the unit using a handle
that rotates upward. (To release the handle, press on it until it pops up; to
secure it, press it down until it clicks into place.) When fully installed, a power
supply automatically mates with a connector on the PSPB, which lies under
the power supplies. The PSPB controls the power supplies and supplies them
with AC power via the AC routing cable.
Two indicators on the top of each power supply (see Figure 1-9) signal the
status of the power supply. Both indicators light briefly during initial system
start-up; the green status indicator stays on to show that the power supply is
operating normally. The red fault indicator turns off after initial system start-up
is complete. If it lights any time after system start-up, a fault is indicated in the
power supply and the power supply should be replaced.

The power supplies can operate from an AC power source of 90 to 265 VAC at
47 to 63 Hz. They provide the DC operating voltages and currents listed in
Table 1-2.
NOTE: The power supplies produce DC voltages only under their loaded
condition. Therefore, when you measure these voltages, the power supplies
must be mated to the PSPB, and the DC power cable harnesses must be
connected to the PSPB and to their corresponding system loads (the system
board, SCSI backplane board, and so forth).

The PSPB receives input from the AC power source and distributes it to the
power supplies. The power supplies return DC power to the PSPB, which in
turn distributes redundant DC power to the system board, SCSI backplane, fan
assembly, and external drive bays. Through embedded server management
(ESM), the PSPB can also be used to perform such tasks as detecting the
presence of one to three power supplies; monitoring voltage and current
outputs from the power supplies, voltage going to the system board, and fan
RPMs; and supporting the SMB_ALERT protocol used by the server management bus (SMB).
The PSPB sits under the power supplies, which automatically mate to connectors on the PSPB when they are installed. For information on removing and
replacing the PSPB, see “Power-Supply Paralleling Board” in Chapter 4.
Figure 1-10 shows the PSPB power connector layout; Table 1-3 shows the
cable connections made from the PSPB.

When you first contact a user who has a problem, ask the user to describe the
problem and the conditions under which it occurs. A verbal description can
often indicate the cause of a problem or indicate the appropriate troubleshooting procedure to use. After the user describes the problem, follow these
steps:
1. Ask the user to back up any data on the hard-disk drive if the system’s
condition permits.
Appendix C, “Maintaining the System,” in the User’s Guide provides
information about backing up data.
2. Ask the user to try to duplicate the problem by repeating the operations
he or she was performing at the time the problem occurred.
Can the user duplicate the problem?
Yes. Proceed to step 3.
No. Proceed to the next section, “External Visual Inspection.”
Basic Troubleshooting
2-1
3. Observe the user to determine if he or she is making an error, such as
typing an incorrect key combination or entering a command incorrectly.
Is the problem a result of user error?
Yes. Instruct the user in the proper procedure, or direct him or her to the
appropriate user documentation for the correct procedure.
No. Proceed to the next section, “External Visual Inspection.”
([WHUQDO9LVXDO,QVSHFWLRQ
The external visual inspection consists of a quick inspection of the exterior of
the computer, the monitor, the keyboard, any peripherals, and cables. While
performing the visual inspection, make any necessary corrections. To perform
the external visual inspection, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the computer, the monitor, and all peripherals.
2. Verify that all power cables are properly connected to the computer, the
monitor and peripherals, and their power sources.
3. Verify that the keyboard and mouse interface cables are firmly attached to
the proper connectors on the back of the computer.
For a PS/2-compatible mouse, the keyboard and mouse interface cable
connectors are identical except for their labels. If needed, see “System
Features” in Chapter 1.
For a serial mouse, the mouse interface cable must be firmly attached to
one of the serial port connectors, and its captive screws must be secure
enough to ensure a firm connection.
4. If any network cables are present, verify that they are attached properly.
5. Verify that any devices attached to the serial and parallel port connectors
are properly connected.
Each of the serial and parallel port interface cables must be firmly attached
to an appropriate connector on the back of the computer as well as to the
interface connector on the device. The captive screws that secure these
connectors at each end of the interface cable must be secure enough to
ensure a firm connection.
6. Verify that the video interface cable is firmly attached to the video connector on the back panel or to a video expansion card, and also to the
connector on the back of the monitor.
For proper connection of the video monitor, see the documentation for the
monitor.

Dell PowerEdge 6350 Systems Service Manual
7.
Inspect all external monitor controls for any obvious damage or improper
settings.
For proper settings of the video monitor controls, see the documentation
for the monitor.
8. Inspect the keyboard to ensure that no keys are sticking.
If one or more keys are sticking, it may be necessary to replace the
keyboard.
9. Inspect the exterior of the computer, including all controls and indicators,
and all user-accessible data storage devices for any signs of physical
damage.
Does the inspection reveal any problems?
Yes. Proceed to the appropriate procedure in Chapter 4, “Removing and
Replacing Parts.”
No. Proceed to the next section, “Observing the Boot Routine.”
2EVHUYLQJWKH%RRW5RXWLQH
After you have performed an external visual inspection as described in the
previous section, you should boot the system and, while the boot routine is
running, observe the system for any indications of problems.
NOTES: Most of the steps in this procedure require observation of system
functions and indications, some of which can occur simultaneously. It may be
necessary to reboot the system several times in order to complete all of these
steps.
To perform the following procedure, you need a Dell Diagnostics diskette
created from the Dell Server Assistant CD. If a separate Dell Diagnostics
diskette is included with your system, you may need to use that diskette.
To observe problem indications during the boot routine, follow these steps:
1. If the system is off, turn on all peripherals and the computer. Insert the
Dell Diagnostics Diskette into the diskette drive and reboot the system.
2. For each power supply, check the status indicator.
Is the green status indicator on, indicating normal operation?
Yes. Proceed to step 3.
No. Troubleshoot the system power supply.
Basic Troubleshooting
2-3
3. Watch the Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock indicators on the upperright corner of the keyboard. After all three indicators flash momentarily,
and following a long pause (approximately 30 seconds), the Num Lock
indicator should light up and remain on (unless the Num Lock option is
set to Off in the System Setup program).
Do these indicators flash on and off within approximately 10 seconds after
the boot routine starts?
Yes. Proceed to step 4.
No. Troubleshoot the system power supplies. If the troubleshooting
procedure indicates that the system power supplies are operational,
troubleshoot the memory.
4. During the boot routine, observe the system for any of the following:
‡ Beep codes: A beep code is a series of beeps that indicates an error
condition. If the system emits a beep code, see Table 3-1 later in this
manual.
‡ System error messages: These messages can indicate problems or
provide status information. If a system error message is displayed,
see Table 3-2 later in this manual.
‡ Diskette-drive and hard-disk drive access indicators: These indicators
light up in response to data being transferred to or from the drives. If
either of these indicators fails to light up during the boot routine,
troubleshoot the diskette drive or hard-disk drive subsystem, as
appropriate.
5. Observe the monitor screen for the Diagnostics Menu.
Does the Diagnostics Menu appear?
Yes. See “Running the Dell Diagnostics” found later in this chapter.
No. Proceed to step 6.
6. Insert another copy of the Dell Diagnostics Diskette into the diskette drive,
and reboot the system.
Does the Diagnostics Menu appear?
Yes. See “Running the Dell Diagnostics” found later in this chapter.
No. Proceed to the next section, “Internal Visual Inspection.”

firmly attached to their appropriate connectors.
6. Close the right and left panel doors.
7.
Reconnect the computer and any attached peripherals to their power
sources, and turn them on.
Does the problem appear to be resolved?
Yes. No further steps are necessary.
No. Proceed to the next section, “Eliminating Resource Conflicts,” and to
“Getting Help” found later in this chapter.
(OLPLQDWLQJ5HVRXUFH&RQIOLFWV
Devices within the computer may require dedicated memory spaces, interrupt
levels, or DMA channels, all of which must be allocated during installation of
the devices. Because devices may be installed at different times, it is possible
that the same resource is assigned to two or more devices.
Resource conflicts can result in disorderly or erratic system operation or
system failure. If you suspect that resource conflicts might exist, check the
system and reassign the resources as necessary.
For additional information, see Chapter 5, “Using the Resource Configuration
Utility,” in the User’s Guide or “Interrupt Assignments” and “DMA Channel
Assignments” in Chapter 1 of this manual.

The Dell Diagnostics contains tests that aid in troubleshooting all major
components of the computer system. To run the tests, you must first create
a diagnostics diskette using the Dell Server Assistant CD. If a separate
Dell Diagnostics diskette is included with your system, you may need to
use that diskette.
To start the Dell Diagnostics, turn off the system, insert a diagnostics diskette
into drive A, and then turn on the system.
Starting the diagnostics causes the Dell logo screen to appear on the monitor
screen, followed by a message indicating that the diagnostics is loading.
Before the diagnostics loads, a program tests the portion of main memory
(RAM) required for loading the diagnostics. If a RAM error is detected,
a message appears on the screen telling you which DIMM has failed.

Dell PowerEdge 6350 Systems Service Manual
If no errors are found in RAM, the diagnostics loads and the Diagnostics
Menu appears. This menu lets you choose the following options or exit the
Dell Diagnostics:
‡ Run All Tests — Runs all tests for a thorough check of the system
‡ Run Quick Tests — Runs selected tests from all test groups to quickly
locate a failure or to indicate where further testing is needed to isolate a
failure
‡ Run Specific Tests — Tests a particular area or subsystem

This chapter describes beep codes, system messages, SCSI hard-disk drive
indicator codes, and power supply indicator activity that can occur during POST
or during normal system operation. Tables 3-1 and 3-2 list faults that can cause
a beep code or system message to occur and the probable causes of the fault
in each case. Table 3-3 explains the hard-disk drive indicator patterns.
If a faulty system does not emit beep codes or display system messages to
indicate a failure, you should use the Dell Diagnostics to run the appropriate
tests to help isolate the source of the problem. See Chapter 5, ”Running the
Dell Diagnostics,” in the Installation and Troubleshooting Guide.
3267%HHS&RGHV
If the monitor cannot display error messages during the POST, the system may
emit a series of beeps that identifies the problem or that can help you identify
a faulty component or assembly. Table 3-1 lists the beep codes that may be
generated during the POST. Most beep codes indicate a fatal error that
prevents the system from completing the boot routine until the indicated
condition is corrected.
When the system emits a beep code, record the code and then find it in
Table 3-1. If the table does not lead to the source of the problem, run the
appropriate tests in the Dell Diagnostics to assist in troubleshooting the
problem.

For example, in the event of a hard-disk drive failure, the drive failed pattern
appears. After the drive is selected for removal, the drive being prepared for
removal pattern appears, followed by the drive ready for insertion or removal
pattern. After the replacement drive is installed, the drive being prepared for
operation pattern appears, followed by the drive online pattern.
NOTE: If you do not have a Dell PowerEdge Expandable RAID Controller host

3. For systems with PowerEdge Expandable RAID Controllers, wait until the
drive status indicators on the drive carrier signal that the drive may be
removed safely.
If the drive has been online, the drive status indicators will flash sequentially as the drive is turned off. When all indicators are turned off, the drive
is ready for removal.
4. Open the hard-disk drive carrier handle to release the carrier.
5. Slide the carrier toward you until it is free of the drive bay.
6. Remove the drive from its carrier by removing the four screws (two on
each side) that secure it in the carrier.
Before installing a new drive, set all jumpers and remove termination from the
drive. When installing the drive, align the bottom edge of the carrier with the
notches in the hard-disk drive bay and insert the carrier into the drive bay.
Close the carrier handle until it latches to ensure that the drive is fully seated in
the backplane board. Be sure to install any required SCSI drivers.

system board so that you can install them in the same slots on the new
board.
7.
Loosen the thumbscrew securing the system board to the bottom of the
chassis.
8. Slide the system board toward the front of the chassis about a half an inch
to clear the chassis hooks, and remove the board.
