Performance features
Customer Self Service (CSS)
The PRIMERGY Customer Self Service (CSS) concept enables you to identify
and replace the affected component yourself in the case of certain error
scenarios.
In the CSS concept, you can replace the following components yourself in the
event of an error:
– Hot-plug hard disk drives (only with an attached storage blade like SX940
S1)
– Memory modules
– Expansion cards
For information on replacing these components, see chapter "Replacing CSS
components" on page 59.
CSS indicators on the control panel and on the back of the PRIMERGY server
provide you with information if a CSS event arises (for more information on the
behavior of these indicators, see chapter "Installation and operation" on
page 41 and the "ServerView Suite Local Service Concept - LSC" manual on
the ServerView Suite DVD 2).
You can also fit your server with a ServerView Local Service Panel, which
enables you to identify the type of component affected by the error directly on
the server (for more information, see the "ServerView Suite Local Service
Concept - LSC" manual on the ServerView Suite DVD 2).
In addition, CSS errors are displayed in the ServerView Operations Manager,
the server management software from Fujitsu.

Performance features
In the event of errors, the ServerView Operations Manager refers you directly to
the affected component and its order information in the Illustrated Spares
catalog of the server in question. (This feature is not available for the Japanese
market.)
System board
The features of the system board are described in the technical manual for the
system board D2873 for the hardware and in the BIOS Setup chapter of this
manual for the firmware.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
A Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for safer storage of keys can be implemented
as an option. This module enables programs from third party manufacturers to
store key information (e.g. drive encryption using Windows Bitlocker Drive
Encryption).
The TPM is activated via the BIOS system (for more information, refer to the
“D2873 BIOS Setup Utility for BX960 S1" manual).
V CAUTION!
– When using the TPM, note the program descriptions provided by the
third party manufacturers.
– You must also create a backup of the TPM content. To do this, follow
the third party manufacturer's instructions. Without this backup, if the
TPM or the system board is faulty you will not be able to access your
data.
– If a failure occurs, please inform your service about the TPM
activation before it takes any action, and be prepared to provide them
with your backup copies of the TPM content.
Slots for expansion cards
The server blade supports four optional mezzanine cards. This enables Fibre
Channel connections, Infiniband connections and/or additional Ethernet
connections to be implemented.

High level of availability and data security
When memory data is accessed, 1-bit errors are identified in the main memory
and automatically corrected with the error correcting code (ECC) method.
ASR&R (Automatic Server Reconfiguration and Restart) restarts the system in
the event of an error and automatically "hides" the defective system
components.
The PDA (Prefailure Detection and Analyzing) technology from Fujitsu
Technology Solutions analyzes and monitors all components that are critical for
system reliability.
iRMC S2 with integrated management LAN connector
I The features of the iRMC S2 Advanced Video Redirection and Remote
Storage are available as an option.
The iRMC S2 (integrated Remote Management Controller) is a BMC with
integrated management LAN connector and expanded functionality that was
previously only available with additional plug-in cards. In this way, the iRMC S2
enables complete control of PRIMERGY servers, regardless of system status,

Overview: Installation steps
This chapter contains an overview of the steps necessary to install your
Server Blade. The cross-references take you to the sections containing more
detailed information on the relevant installation step:
Ê First read the chapter "Important notes" from page 23, particularly the
section "Safety instructions".
Ê Unpack the Server Blade, check the contents of the package for visible
transport damage and check whether the items delivered correspond to the
details on the delivery note (see section "Unpacking the server" on page 34).
Ê Transport the server blade to the place where you want to set it up.
Ê Make sure that you have all necessary manuals (see page 11); print out the

Ê Familiarize yourself with the controls and indicators on the front of the
server blade (see "Control and display elements" on page 41).
Ê Install the operating system and applications on the server blade.
When doing so, you have the following options:
– Clone the server blade from a remote image server using the ServerView
Deployment Manager. Cloning the ServerView Deployment Manager from a
remote image server.
This procedure is recommended if the following conditions are met:
– ServerView Deployment Manager software is available.
– You have a suitable clone image.
– A Deployment Server and LAN connection are available.
– Remote installation with ServerView Installation Manager
This installation method is recommended if you have a LAN connection
