Serverboard Features
At the heart of the SuperServer 6033P-8R lies the X5DP8-G2, a dual Intel Xeon
processor serverboard designed to provide maximum performance. Below are the
main features of the X5DP8-G2.
Chipset
The X5DP8-G2 is based on Intel's E7501 chipset, which is a high-performance
core logic chipset designed for dual-processor servers. See Figure 1-1 for a
block diagram of the E7501.
The E7501 chipset consists of four major components: the Memory Controller
Hub (MCH), the I/O Controller Hub 3 (ICH3), the PCI-X 64-bit Hub 2.0 (P64H2) and
the 82808AA Host Channel Adapter (VxB).
The MCH has four hub interfaces, one to communicate with the ICH3 and three
for high-speed I/O communications. The MCH employs a 144-bit wide memory
bus for a PC1600 (DDR-200) memory interface, which provides a total bandwidth
of 3.2 GB/s. The ICH3 interface is a 266 MB/sec point-to-point connection using
an 8-bit wide, 66 MHz base clock at a 4x data transfer rate. The P64H2 interface
is a 1 GB/s point-to-point connection using a 16-bit wide, 66 MHz base clock at
a 8x data transfer rate.
The ICH3 I/O Controller Hub provides various integrated functions, including a
two-channel UDMA100 bus master IDE controller, USB host controllers, an integrated LAN controller, a System Management Bus controller and an
AC'97 compliant interface.
Each P64H2 PCI-X Hub (there are two) provides a 16-bit connection to the
MCH for high-performance IO capability and the 64-bit PCI-X interface.

Chapter 2
Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 6033P-8R
up and running. Following these steps in the order given should enable you to
have the system operational within a minimum amount of time. This quick setup
assumes that your system has come to you with the processors and memory
preinstalled. If your system is not already fully integrated with a serverboard,
processors, system memory etc., please turn to the chapter or section noted in
each step for details on installing specific components.
2-2
Unpacking the SuperServer 6033P-8R
You should inspect the box the SuperServer 6033P-8R was shipped in and note
if it was damaged in any way. If the server itself shows damage you should file
a damage claim with the carrier who delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold the SuperServer
6033P-8R. It should be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is well ventilated.
Avoid areas where heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields are generated. You will also need it placed near a grounded power outlet. Read the Rack
and Server Precautions in the next section.
2-3
Preparing for Setup
The box the SuperServer 6033P-8R was shipped in should include two sets of rail
assemblies, two rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you will need
to install the system into the rack. Follow the steps in the order given to
complete the installation process in a minimum amount of time. Please read this
section in its entirety before you begin the installation procedure outlined in the
sections that follow.
2-1
SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R Manual
Choosing a Setup Location
- Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open
the front door completely (~25 inches).
- Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack
to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.
!
Warnings and Precautions!
!
Rack Precautions
- Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully
extended to the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
- In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
- In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
- Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component
from the rack.
- You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or
more simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
Server Precautions
- Review the electrical and general safety precautions in Chapter 4.
- Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you
install the rails.
- Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack
first, and then work up.
- Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the
server from power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your
system operating in case of a power failure.
- Allow the hot plug SCSI drives and power supply units to cool before
touching them.
- Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on
the servers closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
2-2
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Rack Mounting Considerations
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating
temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient
temperature of the room. Therefore, consideration should be given to
installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the manufacturer’s
maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow
required for safe operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does
not arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power
supply circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack itself
should be grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of
power strips, etc.).

Installing the 6033P-8R into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the SuperServer 6033P-8R into a
rack unit. If the 6033P-8R has already been mounted into a rack, you can skip
ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6. There are a variety of rack units on the market,
which may mean the assembly procedure will differ slightly. The following is a
guideline for installing the 6033P-8R into a rack with the rack rails provided. You
should also refer to the installation instructions that came with the rack unit you
are using.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
You should have received two rack rail assemblies with the SuperServer 6033P8R. Each of these assemblies consist of two sections: an inner fixed chassis
rail that secures to the 6033P-8R (A) and an outer fixed rack rail that secures
directly to the rack itself (B). All screws and hardware mentioned in the installation steps should be included in the hardware kit.
To remove the fixed chassis rail (A), pull it out as far as possible - you should
hear a "click" sound as a locking tab emerges from inside the rail assembly and
locks the inner rail. Then depress the locking tab to pull the inner rail completely
out. Do this for both the left and right side rack rail assemblies.
Figure 2-1.

Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Chassis Rails
Position one of the fixed chassis rail sections you just removed along the side
of the 6033P-8R. Note that these two rails are left/right specific. Locate the
five rail buttons on each side of the chassis and the five corresponding holes
on each of the inner rails. Note that the holes are elongated with one end of the
hole larger than the other. Align the larger end of each hole with its corresponding button. Once all are aligned, push the holes toward their corresponding
buttons and the rail should secure itself to the chassis see Figure 2-2). Once
a rail is placed on the chassis, pull it forward until the rail buttons lock in the
small ends of the corresponding holes. Secure the rail to the chassis with a M4
x 4mm roundhead screw. Repeat the above steps to install other rail on the
chassis.
Locking Tabs: As mentioned, both chassis rails have a locking tab, which
serves two functions. The first is to lock the server into place when installed and
pushed fully into the rack, which is its normal position. Secondly, these tabs
also lock the server in place when fully extended from the rack. This prevents
the server from coming completely out of the rack when you pull it out for
servicing.
Figure 2-2. Installing Chassis Rails

SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R Manual
Installing the Server into the Rack
Locate a pair of front (short) and rear (long) brackets that were included with
your rack mounting hardware. Note that the brackets are marked with up/front
arrows (front) and up/rear arrows (rear). Secure the short front bracket (A in
Figure 2-3) to the outer rail with two M4 x 4 mm roundhead screws. Locate
the two buttons on the outer rail (B in Figure 2-3) and attach the rear (long)
bracket to it by sliding the opening of the rear rail through the button. Measure
the depth of your rack and adjust the length of the rails accordingly. Repeat
the same steps to install the other outer rail on the chassis. Secure both
outer rail assemblies to the rack using M5 x 12 mm flathead screws and M5
washers.
You are now ready to install the server into the rack. Slide the chassis into
the rack as shown in Figure 2-4. The chassis may not slide into the rack
smoothly or easily when installed the first time. Some adjustment to the slide
assemblies might be needed for easy installation.)
When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear
the locking tabs "click". You will need to release the safety taps on both sides
of the chassis in order to completely remove the chassis out of the rack.

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After you install the 6033P-8R in the rack, you will need to open the unit to make
sure the serverboard is properly installed and all the connections have been
made.
1. Accessing the inside of the 6033P-8R (see Figure 2-5):
First, release the retention screws that secure the unit to the rack. Grasp the
two handles on either side and pull the unit straight out until it locks (you will
hear a "click"). Next, depress the two buttons on the top of the chassis to
release the top cover. You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain
full access to the inside of the server.
2. Check the CPUs (processors):
You may have one or two processors already installed into the serverboard.
Each processor needs its own heatsink. See Chapter 5 for instructions on
processor and heatsink installation.
3. Check the system memory:
Your 6033P-8R server system may have come with system memory already
installed. Make sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots. For details on
adding system memory, refer to Chapter 5.
4. Installing add-on cards:
If desired, you can install add-on cards to the system. See Chapter 5 for
details on installing PCI add-on cards.
5. Check all cable connections and airflow:
Make sure all power and data cables are properly connected and not
blocking the chassis airflow. Also make sure that no cables are positioned in front of the fans. See Chapter 5 for details on cable connections.

Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the SCSI drives
and SCA backplane have been properly installed and all connections have been
made.
1. Accessing the drive bays:
All drives are accessable from the front of the server. For servicing the
CD-ROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove the top chassis
cover. The SCSI disk drives can be installed and removed from the front
of the chassis without removing the top chassis cover.
2. CD-ROM and floppy disk drives:
A slim CD-ROM and a floppy drive should be preinstalled in your server. Refer
to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a CD-ROM and/or floppy disk drive to the
system.
3. Check the SCSI disk drives:
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one or
more drives already installed. If you need to install SCSI drives, please refer
to Chapter 6.
4. Check the airflow:
Airflow is provided by four 9.2-cm blower fans. The system component layout
was carefully designed to direct sufficient cooling airflow to the components
that generate the most heat. Note that all power and data cables have been
routed in such a way that they do not block the airflow generated by the fans.
5. Supplying power to the system:
The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug
the power cords from the power supply units into a high-quality power strip
that offers protection from electrical noise and power surges. It is recommended that you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

the main system power. Turning off system power with this button removes the
main power but keeps standby power supplied to the system.
3-3
Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC832S-R760 chassis has six LEDs.
These LEDs provide you with critical information related to different parts of the
system. This section explains what each LED indicates when illuminated and
any corrective action you may need to take.
!
Overheat: Indicates a CPU overheat condition. This may be caused by
cables obstructing the airflow in the system or the ambient room temperature
being too warm. You should also check to make sure that the chassis cover is
installed and that all fans are present and operating normally. Verify that the
heatsinks are installed properly (see Processor and Heatsink Installation section
in Chapter 5).

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from
harm and the SuperServer 6033P-8R from damage:
! Be aware of the locations of the power on/off switch on the chassis as well
as the room's emergency power-off switch, disconnection switch or
electrical outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then quickly
remove power from the system.
! Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
! Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing or
installing main system components, such as the motherboard, memory
modules and the CD-ROM and floppy drives. When disconnecting power,
you should first power down the system with the operating system and
then unplug the power cords of all the power supply units in the system.
! When working around exposed electrical circuits, another person who is
familiar with the power-off controls should be nearby to switch off the power
if necessary.
! Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment. This
is to avoid making a complete circuit, which will cause electrical shock.
Use extreme caution when using metal tools, which can easily damage
any electrical components or circuit boards they come into contact with.
! Do not use mats designed to decrease electrostatic discharge as protection
from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically
designed as electrical insulators.
! The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
4-1
SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R Manual
! Motherboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the onboard
battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarities. On the
X5DP8-G2, the positive side should be facing up. This battery must be
replaced only with the same or an equivalent type recommended by the
manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's
instructions.
! CD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with a CDROM drive. To prevent direct exposure to the laser beam and hazardous
radiation exposure, do not open the enclosure or use the unit in any
unconventional way.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
! Keep the area around the SuperServer 6033P-8R clean and free of clutter.
! The SuperServer 6033P-8R weighs approximately 75 lbs (34.1 kg.) when
fully loaded. When lifting the system, two people at either end should lift
slowly with their feet spread out to distribute the weight. Always keep your
back straight and lift with your legs. Don't use the handles to lift the
chassis; the handles should only be used to pull the server out of the rack.
! Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been
removed away from the system or on a table so that they won't accidentally
be stepped on.
! While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties
and unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact with electrical
circuits or be pulled into a cooling fan.
! Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent
metal conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come
into contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
! After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and
secure it to the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that all
connections have been made.
4-3
ESD Precautions
!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different
electrical charges coming into contact with each other. An electrical
discharge is created to neutralize this difference, which can damage electronic
components and printed circuit boards. The following measures are generally
sufficient to neutralize this difference before contact is made to protect your
equipment from ESD:
! Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
! Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic
bags until ready for use.
! Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic
bag.
! Do not let components or PCBs come into contact with your clothing,
which may retain a charge even if you are wearing a wrist strap.
! Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or contacts.
! When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
! Put the motherboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when
not in use.
! For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides
excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting
fasteners and the motherboard.
4-3
SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R Manual
4-4
Operating Precautions
!
Care must be taken to assure that the chassis cover is in place when the
6033P-8R is operating to assure proper cooling. Out of warranty damage to
the 6033P-8R system can occur if this practice is not strictly followed.

Advanced Serverboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to the
X5DP8-G2 serverboard, connect the data and power cables and install add-on
cards. All serverboard jumpers and connections are described and a layout and
quick reference chart are included in this chapter. Remember to close the
chassis completely when you have finished working on the serverboard to protect
and cool the system sufficiently.
5-1
Handling the X5DP8-G2 Serverboard
Static electrical discharge can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to printed circuit boards, it is important to handle them very carefully (see Chapter 4). Also note that the size and weight of the serverboard can
cause it to bend if handled improperly, which may result in damage. To prevent
the serverboard from bending, keep one hand under the center of the board to
support it when handling. The following measures are generally sufficient to
protect your equipment from static discharge.
Precautions
• Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
• Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic bag.
• Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
• When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
• Put the serverboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic
bags when not in use.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

PGA Processor and Heatsink Installation
!
When handling the processor package, avoid placing direct
pressure on the label area of the fan. Also, do not place the
serverboard on a conductive surface, which can damage the BIOS
battery and prevent the system from booting up.
IMPORTANT: Always connect the power cord last and always remove it before
adding, removing or changing any hardware components. Make sure that you
install the processor into the CPU socket before you install the heatsink. The
X5DP8-G2 can support either one or two Xeon 604/603-pin processors of up to
3.20 GHz with a 1 MB integrated transfer cache. If installing one processor only,
install it into CPU socket #1.
1. Lift the lever on the CPU socket.
Lift the lever completely or you will
damage the CPU socket when
power is applied. (Install a processor into CPU #1 socket first.)
2. Install the CPU in the socket.
Make sure that pin 1 of the CPU is
seated on pin 1 of the socket (both
corners are marked with a triangle).
When using only one CPU, install it
into CPU socket #1 (CPU socket #2
is automatically disabled if only one
CPU is used).
3. Press the lever down until you
hear it *click* into the locked position. See Figure 5-1 for pictures of
the 604-pin CPU socket before and
after the processor is installed.
5-2

4. Apply the proper amount of thermal compound to the CPU die and place
the heatsink on top of the CPU. Make sure the heatsink sits completely flat
on the CPU - if not, the space between the two will degrade the heat
dissipation function of the heatsink, which may cause the processor to
overheat.
5. Secure the heatsink by locking the retention clips into position. When
correctly installed, the clips should *click* into place and the three black
tabs on the CPU retention pieces should protrude fully through the corresponding holes on the retention clips. See Figure 5-2 for a diagram of the
heatsink installation procedure.
6. Connect the fan wires to the rpespective CPU Fan cheader on the
motherboard. If installing two processors, repeat these steps to install the
second processor in the CPU #2 slot.
IMPORTANT! Please note that special, new silver heatsink retention clips must
be used with all Xeon 533 MHz FSB (front side bus) 604-pin processors.
These new retention clips have “604P” clearly marked on them. Using the old
clips will not keep the proper amount of pressure applied and may cause the
processor to overheat. You should not use these new retention clips with
Xeon 400 MHz FSB processors (even if the CPU socket is 604-pin) as they will
too tight and damage the CPU socket.

Connecting Cables
Now that the processors are installed, the next step is to connect the cables to
the serverboard. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the peripherals and
control panel and the power cables.
Connecting Data Cables
The ribbon cables used to transfer data from the peripheral devices have
been carefully routed in preconfigured systems to prevent them from blocking the flow of cooling air that moves through the system from front to back.
If you need to disconnect any of these cables, you should take care to keep
them routed as they were originally after reconnecting them (make sure the
red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). If you are configuring the system, keep the airflow in mind when routing the cables. The following data
cables (with their serverboard connector locations noted) should be connected.
See the serverboard layout figure in this chapter for connector locations.
! IDE Device Cable (IDE#2)
! Floppy Drive Cable (JP7)
! SCSI Cable (JA1)
! Control Panel Cable (JF2, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The X5DP8-G2 has a 24-pin primary power supply connector designated "ATX
Power" for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate connector from the power supply to the "ATX Power" connector to supply power to
the serverboard. The Secondary ATX Power Connector (at J15) must also be
connected to your power supply. See the Connector Definitions section in this
chapter for power connector pin definitions.
5-5
SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R User’s Manual
Connecting the Control Panel
JF2 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See Figure
5-3 for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons and LED
indicators. Please note that even and odd numbered pins are on opposite sides
of each header.
All JF2 wires have been bundled into single ribbon cable to simplify their connection. Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the board. The other
end connects to the Control Panel printed circuit board, located just behind the
system status LEDs in the chassis.
See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for details and pin descriptions of JF2.

Installing Memory
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules:
http://www.supermicro.com/support/.
CAUTION
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM
modules to prevent any possible damage. Also note that the
memory is interleaved to improve performance (see step 1).
DIMM Installation (See Figure 5-5)
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory slots, starting with Bank
1 (DIMM#1A, DIMM#1B). The memory scheme is interleaved so you must
install two modules at a time, beginning with Bank 1, then Bank 2 and so
on.
2. Insert each DIMM module into its slot. Pay attention to the notch along the
bottom of the module to prevent inserting the DIMM module incorrectly.
5-7
SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R User’s Manual
3. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the slot.
Repeat for all modules (see step 1 above).
Memory Support
The X5DP8-G2 only supports ECC registered DDR266/200 (PC2100/1600)
memory. If you are using 533 MHz FSB processors, you must use DDR266
SDRAM. If you are using 400 MHz FSB processors, you may use either DDR266
or DDR200 SDRAM. You should not mix DIMMs of different sizes and speeds.
See Figures 5-5a and 5-5b for installing and removing memory modules.
Figure 5-5a.
Side View of DIMM Installation into Slot
To Install: Insert module vertically and press down until it snaps into
place. Pay attention to the bottom notch.
To Remove: Use your thumbs to gently push each release tab outward
to free the DIMM from the slot.

Adding PCI Cards
1.
PCI-X slots:
The X5DP8-G2 has a total of six 3.3V PCI-X slots, which consist of two 64bit, 133 MHz PCI-X, one 64-bit 100 MHz PCI-X and three 64-bit, 66 MHz PCIX slots. The SC832S-R760 chassis accommodates up to six standard (full
sized) add-on cards.
2.
PCI card installation:
Before installing a PCI add-on card, make sure you install it into a slot that
supports the speed of the card (see step 1, above). Begin by swinging
the release tab on the I/O back panel shield out to the left for the PCI slot.
Insert the PCI card into the correct slot on the serverboard), pushing down
with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card. Finish by pushing the
release tab back to its original (locked) position. Follow this procedure when
adding a card to other slots.

Static-Sensitive Devices
Electricstatic discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very
carefully. The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD damage.
Precautions
! Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
! Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic bag.
! Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
! When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
! Put the serverboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic
bags when not in use.
! For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting
fasteners and the serverboard.

System Fans
Four 9-cm fans (and the active CPU heatsinks) provide all the cooling needed for
the SuperServer 6033P-8R. It is very important that the chassis top cover is
properly installed and making a good seal in order for the cooling air to circulate
properly through the chassis and cool the components. See Figure 6-2.
System Fan Failure
The fans run at 4300 rpm. If a fan fails, the ambient air temperature in the chassis
will rise and activate the overheat LED on the control panel. Replace any failed
fan immediately. The hot plug fans will start to function upon connection to its
fan header on the X5DP8-G2 serverboard.
Replacing System Cooling Fans
1.
Removing a fan:
Remove the chassis cover. Press the tabs on the top of the fan housing
and remove the fan and its housing. The system power need not be shut
down since the fans are all hot-pluggable on the X5DP8-G2 serverboard.
2.
Installing a new fan:
Replace the failed fan with an identical 9-cm, 12 volt fan (available from
Supermicro, p/n FAN-0063). Position the new fan at its proper place in the
chassis by fitting the fan with its housing onto the fan mounts in the
chassis. A "click" can be heard if the fan (in its housing) is properly
installed. If the system power is on, the hot-pluggable fan feature will
cause the fan to start immediately upon being connected to its header on
the serverboard.

Note: You must use standard 1" high, 80-pin SCA SCSI drives in the SuperServer 6033P-8R.
CD-ROM/Floppy Disk Drive: For installing/removing the CD-ROM or floppy disk
drive, you will need to gain access to the inside of the server by removing the top
cover of the chassis. Proceed to the "CD-ROM and Floppy Drive Installation"

SCSI Drive Installation
1.
Mounting a SCSI drive in a drive carrier:
The SCSI drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation
and removal from the chassis. These carriers also help promote proper
airflow for the SCSI drive bays. For this reason, even empty carriers
without SCSI drives installed must remain in the chassis to cool each
drive evenly. To add a new SCSI drive, install a drive into the carrier
with the printed circuit board side toward the carrier so that the mounting
holes align with those in the carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with
four screws, as shown in Figure 6-3.
Figure 6-3. Mounting a SCSI Drive in a Carrier
!
!
Use caution when working around the SCSI backplane.
Do not touch the backplane with any metal objects
and make sure no ribbon cables touch the backplane
or obstruct the holes, which aid in proper airflow.
Important: Regardless of how many SCSI hard drives
are installed, all SCSI drive carriers must remain in the
drive bays for proper airflow.
6-5
SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R Manual
2.
Installing/removing hot-swap SCSI drives:
The SCSI drive bays are located in the front of the chassis, making them
easily accessible for installation and removal. The SCSI drives are hotswap units, meaning that they can be installed and removed while the
system is running. To remove a SCSI drive, first push the release button
located beside the drive's LEDs, then swing the handle fully out and use it to
pull the SCSI drive carrier straight out (see Figure 6-4).
Figure 6-4.
Removing SCSI Drives
Handle
SCA Backplane
The SCSI drives plug into a SAF-TE compliant SCA backplane that provides
power, SCSI ID and bus termination (see Figure 6-5). A RAID controller can be
used with the SCA backplane to provide data security. The operating system you
use must have RAID support to enable the hot-swap capability of the SCSI drive.

Installing a Component in the 5.25" Drive Bay
1.
Mounting the component in the drive carrier
A component such as an IDE hard drive or an additional SCSI drive that
can fit into a standard IDE drive bay can be mounted in the 5.25" drive bays.
The component should also be mounted in a drive carrier to simplify its
installation and removal from the chassis. These carriers also help promote
proper airflow. For this reason, even empty carriers without a component
installed must remain in the chassis. To add a component such as those
noted above, install a drive into the carrier with the printed circuit board side
toward the carrier so that the mounting holes align with those in the carrier.
Secure the drive to the carrier with the four screws.
6-7
SUPERSERVER 6033P-8R Manual
2.
Installing/removing 5.25" drive bay component
Two 5.25" drive bays are located in the front of the chassis, making them
easily accessible for installation and removal. Components installed in these
bays are not hot-swappable, meaning system power must be turned off before
installing and/or removing them. To remove the drive carrier, first power down
the system and then remove the top cover of the chassis. Push the latch
located at the rear of the drive bay you wish to remove and then push the
drive bay out through the front of the chassis (see Figure 6-6). Attach the
component to the carrier if installing. Reverse this procedure to install the

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
CD-ROM and Floppy Drive Installation
The top cover of the chassis must be opened to gain access to the CD-ROM and
floppy drive bays. The 6033P-8R accomodates only slim CD-ROM drives. Side
mounting brakets are typically needed to mount a slim CD-ROM drive in the
6033P-8R server.
To remove the CD-ROM or floppy drive carrier, first power down the system and
then remove the top cover of the chassis. Push the latch located at the rear of
the CD-ROM or floppy drive bay and then push the drive bay out through the front
of the chassis. See Figures 6-7a and 6-7b for illustrations of removing these
drives. The illustrations also show how to mount each drive on the rails, which
are needed to slide them into the open chassis bays. Reverse this procedure to
re-install the drives, making sure the latch clicks when re-inserting the drive bay
into the chassis. Replace the top cover when finished.
Note: The red wire on a ribbon cable typically designates the location of pin 1.

Power Supply
The SuperServer 6033P-8R has a 760 watt redundant power supply consisting of
three 380W power modules. Each power supply module has an auto-switching
capability, which enables it to automatically sense and operate at a 100V to
240V input voltage.
Power Supply Failure
If either of the active power supply modules fail, the backup module will take the
full load and allow the system to continue operation without interruption. The
PWR Fail LED will illuminate and remain on until the failed unit has been replaced. Replacement units can be ordered directly from Supermicro (see contact
information in the Preface). The power supply units have a hot-swap capability,
meaning you can replace the failed unit without powering down the system.
Removing/Replacing the Power Supply
You do not need to shut down the system to replace a power supply
unit. The redundant feature will keep the system up and running while
you replace the failed hot-swap unit. Replace with the same model - SP762TS (p/n PWS-0050), which can be ordered directly from Supermicro (see
Contact Information in the Preface).
1.
Removing the power supply:
First unplug the power cord from the failed power supply unit. Then
depress the locking tab on the power supply unit and pull the unit straight
out with the rounded handle.
2.
Installing a new power supply:
Replace the failed hot-swap unit with another PWS-0050M power supply unit.
Simply push the new power supply unit into the power bay until you hear a
*click*. Secure the locking tab on the unit and finish by plugging the AC
power cord back into the unit.

Introduction
This chapter describes the PhoenixBIOS™ Setup utility for the X5DP8-G2.
The Phoenix ROM BIOS is stored in a flash chip and can be easily upgraded
using a floppy disk-based program.
Note: Due to periodic changes to the BIOS, some settings may have been
added or deleted and might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer
to the Manual Download area of the Supermicro web site
<http://www.supermicro.com> for any changes to BIOS that may not be
reflected in this manual.
System BIOS
The BIOS is the Basic Input Output System used in all IBM® PC, XT™, AT® ,
and PS/2 ® compatible computers. The PhoenixBIOS flash chip stores the
system parameters, such type of disk drives, video displays, etc. in the
CMOS. The CMOS memory requires very little electrical power. When the
computer is turned off, a back-up battery provides power to the BIOS flash
chip, enabling it to retain system parameters. Each time the computer is
powered-on the computer is configured with the values stored in the BIOS
ROM by the system BIOS, which gains control at boot-up.
How To Change the Configuration Data
The CMOS information that determines the system parameters may be
changed by entering the BIOS Setup utility. This Setup utility can be accessed by pressing the <Delete> key at the appropriate time during system
boot, see below.
Starting the Setup Utility
Normally, the only visible POST (Power On Self Test) routine is the memory
test. As the memory is being tested, press the <Delete> key to enter the
main menu of the BIOS Setup utility. From the main menu, you can access
the other setup screens, such as the Security and Power menus. Beginning with Section 4-3, detailed descriptions are given for each parameter
setting in the Setup utility.

Running Setup
*Default settings are in bold text unless otherwise noted.
The BIOS setup options described in this section are selected by choosing the appropriate text from the main BIOS Setup screen. All displayed
text is described in this section, although the screen display is often all
you need to understand how to set the options (see on next page).
When you first power on the computer, the PhoenixBIOS™ is immediately
activated.
While the BIOS is in control, the Setup program can be activated in one of two
ways:
1. By pressing <Delete> immediately after turning the system on, or
2. When the message shown below appears briefly at the bottom of the
screen during the POST (Power On Self-Test), press the <Delete> key to
activate the main Setup menu:
Press the <Delete> key to enter Setup

Main BIOS Setup
All main Setup options are described in this section. The main BIOS Setup screen
is displayed below.
Use the Up/Down arrow keys to move among the different settings in each menu.
Use the Left/Right arrow keys to change the options for each setting.
Press the <Esc> key to exit the CMOS Setup Menu. The next section describes
in detail how to navigate through the menus.
Items that use submenus are indicated with the ! icon. With the item highlighted,
press the <Enter> key to access the submenu.

Appendix B: BIOS POST Codes
Appendix B
BIOS POST Codes
This section lists the POST (Power On Self Test) codes for the PhoenixBIOS. POST
codes are divided into two categories: recoverable and terminal.
Recoverable POST Errors
When a recoverable type of error occurs during POST, the BIOS will display
an POST code that describes the problem. BIOS may also issue one of the
following beep codes:
1 long and two short beeps - video configuration error
1 continuous long beep - no memory detected
Terminal POST Errors
If a terminal type of error occurs, BIOS will shut down the system. Before
doing so, BIOS will write the error to port 80h, attempt to initialize video and
write the error in the top left corner of the screen.
The following is a list of codes that may be written to port 80h.

* If the BIOS detects error 2C, 2E, or 30 (base 512K RAM error), it displays an additional
word-bitmap (xxxx) indicating the address line or bits that failed. For example, “2C 0002”
means address line 1 (bit one set) has failed. “2E 1020" means data bits 12 and 5 (bits
12 and 5 set) have failed in the lower 16 bits. The BIOS also sends the bitmap to the port80 LED display. It first displays the checkpoint code, followed by a delay, the high-order
byte, another delay, and then the loworder byte of the error. It repeats this sequence
continuously.
