10 Gbit switch blade 10/2
– 10 internal 10 Gbit/s ports to the server blades
– 2 external 10 Gbit/s ports with optional X2 transceiver modules for
Fiber optical or CX4 copper cable
I The 10 Gbit switch blade 10/2 only supports server blades,
each equipped with a 10 GbE daughter card.
All switch blades are hot-swappable. By installing two switch blades,
redundant LAN connections can be provided for the server blades.
●
Ethernet LAN Pass-Thru-Blade
The Ethernet LAN Pass-Thru-Blade is an alternative to the switch blade. It
provides direct (“pass-thru”) connections to the LAN for the onboard LAN
controllers and the optional Gigabit Ethernet I/O modules of the server
blades. The Ethernet LAN Pass-Thru-Blade has ten RJ45 connectors.
●
Fibre Channel pass-thru blade
The PRIMERGY BX600 S2 basic unit can have one or two Fibre Channel
pass-thru blades to provide Fibre Channel functionality for the installed
server blades. A Fibre Channel (FC) pass-thru blade offers 10 ports for
bypass connections between FC daughter cards installed in the server
blades and the optical transceivers for serial FC I/O and general I/O signals.

Features
Introduction
KVM-Blade
For administering the server blades, the PRIMERGY BX600 S2 basic unit offers
a KVM blade, which allows the individual server blades to be connected to a
console.
– The standard KVM blade allows a monitor, PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse
to be connected for local administration of the server blades.
– The adv. KVM blade offers the same functionality as the standard version
of the KVM blade plus a LAN port for connecting a Web-based console.
– The digital KVM blade offers the same functionality as the standard version
of the KVM blade plus a LAN port for connecting a Web-based console.
Power Supply
Up to four hot-swappable power supply units which adjust automatically to any
power voltage in the range 200 - 240 V in a 2+2 redundant power supply configuration ensure enough power for the system. If one of these units fails, the
others ensure that operation continues unimpaired. The defective power supply
unit can be replaced during operation (hot-swap).
Ventilation
The system is kept cool by three fans in each power supply unit and four single
fans, with two of them mounted one after the other in a housing in the rear
chassis. This configuration is redundant and hot-swappable.
High Level of Availability and Failure Protection
When memory data is accessed, 1-bit errors in the main memory are recognized and automatically corrected with the ECC (Error Correcting Code)
method.
ASR&R (Automatic Server Reconfiguration and Restart) restarts the system in
the case of an error and automatically “hides” the defective system components.
The PDA (Prefailure Detection and Analyzing) technology from Fujitsu Siemens
Computers analyzes and monitors all components relevant for system reliability.
The hot-swappable components provide additional failure protection. Failure
protection on a complete blade system is ensured by up to four redundant, hotswap power supply units (PSU), as well as hot-swap, redundant fans.

PRIMERGY BX600 S2 Basic Unit
Introduction
Features
Server Management
Server management is implemented via the supplied ServerView software and
PDA (Prefailure Detection and Analyzing) technology from Fujitsu Siemens
Computers. PDA warns of system errors or overloading before they occur so
that preventive measures can be taken.
ServerView allows the management of all PRIMERGY servers in the network via
a central console. Here ServerView supports the following functions:
●
Remote startup (Wake On LAN)
●
Temperature monitoring of the CPU and the surrounding area
●
Watchdog timer for Automatic Server Reconfiguration and Restart (ASR&R)
in the event of memory modules or processors failing
●
Power monitoring
●
End-of-life monitoring of the fans with timely notification before a failure
●
Watchdog timer for operating system monitoring and application monitoring
with ASR&R
Deployment software makes installing multiple servers fast and easy. For further
information, see the corresponding documentation (see “Related Publications”
on page 165).
Information on server management with ServerView is provided in the associated

Cable Routing
The cables are routed directly on the rack support uprights.
PCI Cards with Cable at the Front
If a PCI expansion module is installed in a server blade, you will have to connect
the PCI port with an external device on the back of the rack. To route the cable
from the front to the back of the rack, use the side slots of the rack with a cable
bezel as shown in figure 11 below. You may also route the cable to the back of
the rack, using the space below the basic unit.

Figure 11: Cable routing from the front to the back of the server (top view)
Server blades with SCSI boards installed via PCI expansion modules can only
be installed in slots 5 and 6 of the basic unit. This is why about 100 mm of space
is required in front of the server due to the bend radius of the SCSI cable. The
curved design of the PRIMECENTER rack door ensures that there is sufficient
room for slots 5 and 6.

Connecting the System to the Mains
●
Make sure you observe the information on determining how many
power supply units are required (see chapter “Power Supply
Concept” on page 139).
●
The power supply units switch on automatically at a mains voltage
between 200 - 240 V. The base unit may only be commissioned if the
local mains voltage is within the voltage range of the system.
●
The 2100 W power supply units may only be connected to 16 Amp
grounding outlets or CEE outlets. When ordering the base unit,
indicate the type of outlet available at the installation site. This will
allow us to supply a cable with suitable inlet connectors for nonheating appliances with the order.

Figure 13: Connecting the basic unit to the mains
Ê First connect the insulated connector of the power cables to the power
supply units of the basic unit (1), and then plug the power plug (2) into the
USV, Power Distribution Unit (PDU) or into an external socket.
V CAUTION!
Always connect the power cable to the power supply units first, and then
to the mains.

PRIMERGY BX600 S2 Basic Unit
Installing the Hardware
Connecting the System to the Mains
I Please make sure that each of the power supply units is connected to a
different phase. This will provide you with additional phase redundancy
for high availability configurations. If one phase has failed, the power
supply units connected to the other phases keep active. You can get full
phase redundancy with up to three power supply units. With four power
supply units, two of them are to be connected to one phase (see also
“Related Publications” on page 165).
Phase redundancy is possible in regions, where a single phase provides
200 - 240V; in other regions with lower single phase voltage, two phases
must be coupled and complete phase redundancy thus is not possible.

against unauthorized access. By combining these options, you can achieve
optimum protection for the system.
I A detailed description of the Security menu and how to assign passwords
can be found in the manual for the BIOS Setup and on the ServerBooks
CD (see also “Related Publications” on page 165).
Preventing Unauthorized BIOS Setup Calls
This protection mechanism can be activated by setting a supervisor password
in the Security menu. In addition, the Press F2 for Setup message in the
Security menu can be suppressed. This message is then no longer displayed
while the server's startup routine is in progress.
Preventing Unauthorized System Access
This protection mechanism can be activated by setting a user password in the
Security menu.
Preventing Unauthorized Boot Process
This protection mechanism can be activated by setting a password on boot in
the Security menu.

Server Blades
This chapter describes how to install and uninstall server blades and server
blade dummy modules in the PRIMERGY BX600 S2 basic unit, and what you
need to be aware of when doing this.
The information necessary for installing and operating the various server blade
models can be found in separate manuals (see “Related Publications” on
page 165).
When you install a server blade in the basic unit, an important factor is the
height. Figure 28 shows a 2-way server blade, which occupies one slot in the
basic unit.

Port Assignment of the LAN Switch Blades
For each of the ten server blade slots, connections are available to the two ports
of the onboard LAN controllers and to the two ports of the optional gigabit
Ethernet daughter card. In the case of 4-way server blades, connections for a
total of eight LAN ports are therefore available.
The LAN switch blade in the NET1 slot is connected to port A of the onboard
LAN controller of the installed server blades. The switch blade in slot NET2 is
connected to port B of the onboard LAN controller. In the same way, the LAN
switch blades in slots NET3 and NET4 are connected to port A and B of the
gigabit Ethernet daughter cards.

Power Supply Concept
In the basic configuration, the PRIMERGY BX600 S2 base unit contains two hot
swap power supply units (PSU1 and PSU2 in figure 88). The power supply units
adapt automatically to any voltage within the range 200 V - 240 V.
PSU4
PSU3
PSU2
PSU1
Figure 88: PRIMERGY BX600 S2 basic unit: power supply units
To provide a redundant power supply, a third or fourth power supply unit can be
installed (PSU3 and PSU4 in figure 88).
If one of the four power units fails, the other two/three units will ensure the unit
continues to operate normally. The defective power supply unit can be replaced
while the unit is still running (hot swap).
I Please make sure that each of the power supply units is connected to a
different phase. This will provide you with additional phase redundancy
for high availability configurations. If one phase has failed, the power
supply units connected to the other phases keep active. You can get full
phase redundancy with up to three power supply units. With four power
supply units, two of them are to be connected to one phase (see also
“Related Publications” on page 165).

Power Supply Units
Power Supply Concept
Phase redundancy is possible in regions, where a single phase provides
200 - 240V; in other regions with lower single phase voltage, two phases
must be coupled and complete phase redundancy thus is not possible.
The unoccupied PSU slots are fitted with dummy modules to ensure that the
electromagnetic emission properties of the system are observed and that the
system components are properly cooled.
14.1
Power Supply Units
The power supply units (PSU) are directly accessible at the rear of the system
(figure 88 on page 139):
The power supply unit can communicate with the system service processor via
an internal management interface (IIC bus). The PSU part number, FRU data,
barcode number, manufacturer ID, and fault data are stored in a VPD EEPROM
module and can be recalled via the IIC bus. The PSU status can be displayed
in the server management software ServerView.
Each power supply unit has a large fan on the front (A) and two smaller fans on
the rear (B) that provide air cooling for the system (see figure 89 below).

power supply unit fans.
When the base unit is operating normally, LEDs 1 and 3 will be on all the time
and LED 2 will be off. If LED 2 signals a fault by lighting up, the power supply
unit affected must be replaced as soon as possible. This can be done while the
base unit is still running (see page 142).

14.1.1 Replacing a Power Supply Unit
If a power unit fails, the front orange ID LED blinks in the system unit operator
panel. The defective power unit can be replaced while the base unit is still
running.
V CAUTION
Do not, under any circumstances, remove a fan module if a power
supply unit fails!
The 2100 W power supply unit is not downwardly compatible. It may only
be used in the S2 variant of the PRIMERGY BX600 base unit.
If a system fault occurs and the front ID LED/fault LED blinks, the fault
must be remedied before additional components can be removed or
added.
To ensure continuous air circulation through the chassis, the slots for the
power supply units must not be left empty and/or open for more than five
minutes when the system is running. Components may be damaged if
this five minute limit is exceeded.
Ê Check the FAN LED of the power supply units on the back of the system (see
figure 90 on page 141) to determine which power supply unit is defective.
Ê First disconnect the power supply cable of the defective PSU from the
mains.
Ê Remove the power supply cable from the insulated socket of the defective
PSU.
