Server Chassis Features
The SuperServer 8050 is a high-end, scaleable server platform designed
with today's most state-of-the-art features. The following is a general
outline of the main features of the SC850 server chassis.
System Power
A triple redundant power supply consisting of three 350W units provides
700W of continuous power with a 350W backup. If either working unit
fails, you will be notified by alarm and the backup unit will automatically
activate. These are hot-swap units that can be replaced without powering
down the system.
SCSI Subsystem
The SCSI subsystem supports up to 10 80-pin SCA Ultra160 SCSI hard
drives. (Any standard 1" drives are supported. SCA = Single Connection
Attachment.) These can be configured as 10 drives on a single channel or
5 drives on two channels. The SCSI drives are connected to two SAF-TE
compliant SCA backplanes that provide power, bus termination and configuration settings. The SCSI drives are also hot-swap units. A RAID controller
card can be used with the SCA backplanes to provide data security.
Note: The operating system you use must have RAID support to enable the
hot-swap capability of the SCSI drives.
Front Control Panel
The SuperServer 8050's detailed control panel provides comprehensive
system monitoring and control. LEDs indicate network activity, power supply failure, fan failure, fan status, SCSI drive activity and failure and SCA
backplane overheat conditions. The main power button, system reset button and an alarm reset switch to disable audible alarms are also included.
1-2
Chapter 1: Introduction
I/O Backplane
The SC850 is an SWTX form factor chassis. The SWTX I/O back panel
provides nine motherboard expansion slots, two COM ports, a parallel port,
two USB ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports and an Ethernet port.
Cooling System
The SC850 chassis has an innovative cooling design that includes 9-cm hotplug redundant system cooling fans and two airflow guides. All fans operate continuously. If one fails, an alarm is activated and the RPM of the
remaining fans increase to compensate and maintain sufficient airflow. Additional cooling for the SCSI drive bays is provided by two 12-cm exhaust
fans.
1-3
Mainboard Features
At the heart of the SuperServer 8050 lies the S2QR6, a quad processor
motherboard designed to provide maximum performance in a four-way system. Below are the main features of the S2QR6.
Processors
The S2QR6 supports Pentium III and II Xeon 100 MHz FSB processors in 1,
2, 3 and 4-way configurations. 400-700 MHz processors and future higher
speed processors with a 100 MHz FSB will also be supported. Please refer
to the support section of our web site for a complete listing of supported
processors (http://www.supermicro.com/TechSupport.htm).
Memory
The MEC (Memory Expansion Card) included with your S2QR6 has 16 DIMM
slots that can support up to 16 GB of registered DIMM with ECC. Module
sizes of 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1 GB may be used to populate the MEC.
Onboard SCSI
Onboard SCSI is provided with an Adaptec AIC-7899 SCSI chip, which supports dual channel, Ultra160 SCSI at a throughput of 160 MB/sec for each
channel. The S2QR6 provides three SCSI ports: two 68-pin LVD Ultra160
1-3
SUPERSERVER 8050 Manual
connectors and one 50-pin Legacy SCSI connector, which is shared with
channel B.
PCI Expansion Slots
The S2QR6 has a total of eight PCI expansion slots consisting of two 64-bit
66 MHz slots, four 64/32-bit 33 MHz slots and two 32-bit 33 MHz slots. All
together they provide an I/O bandwidth of 931 MB/sec.
Onboard Controllers/Ports
An onboard IDE controller supports up to four UDMA/33 hard drives or
ATAPI devices. The color-coded I/O ports include two COM ports, a parallel
port, two USB ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports and a 10/100 MB
Ethernet port.
Other Features
Other onboard features that promote system health include eight onboard
voltage monitors, a chassis intrusion header, auto-switching voltage regulators, chassis and CPU overheat sensors, virus protection and BIOS rescue.

Quick Setup
2-1
Overview and Precautions
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 8050
up and operating. Following these steps in the order given should enable
you to have the system operating within a minimum amount of time. This
quick setup assumes that your SuperServer 8050 system has come to you
with processors and memory preinstalled. If your system is not already
fully integrated with a motherboard, processors, system memory etc.,
please turn to the Chapter noted in each step for details on installing these
components and configuring the system.
2-2
Setting up the SuperServer 8050
You should inspect the box the SuperServer 8050 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 place for setting up and operating the SuperServer
8050. You will need to place it 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.
Once the 8050 is placed in the appropriate location, slide the locking tabs on
each caster down to keep it stationary.
Checking the Motherboard Setup
Open the left side panel (when facing the front of the chassis) to make
sure the motherboard is properly installed and all connections have been
made.
1. Remove the left chassis side panel:
First, make sure the keylock for the side panels (located near the top
at the rear of the chassis) is unlocked. Then remove the four screws
that secure the back lip of the side panel to the rear of the chassis.
Grasp the handle at the rear of the panel and pull straight back about
1/2 inch, at which point the panel should hit a stop. Swing the top of
2-1
SUPERSERVER 8050 Manual
the panel out and completely lift it away from the chassis. When
reinstalling this panel, make sure the raised holes along the bottom of
the chassis fit into the long holes in the bottom lip of the side panel.
2. Check the CPU core/bus ratio:
You should first verify that the CPU core/bus ratio as set with DIP
switch 1 matches the speed of your installed processors. This DIP
switch is defaulted to 5.5, which corresponds to 550 MHz processors
running on a 100 MHz front side bus (FSB). If the setting is different
or if you are using processors of a different speed, you may need to
change this setting. See page 5-20 for setting the proper value with
DIP switch 1. If your system came without processors, refer to page
5-6 for processor installation instructions.
3. Check the MEC:
The Memory Expansion Card (MEC) should be already installed and
populated with DIMMs. Make sure the MEC is secure in its slot and
that the retention plate is screwed firmly to the chassis. For details on
populating the MEC, refer to page 5-8.
4. Install add-on cards:
Install any add-on cards that you want added to the system. See page
5-11 for details on installing add-on cards.
5. Check all cable connections and airflow:
Make sure all power and data cables are properly and firmly connected
and not blocking the airflow. See page 5-4 for details on cable
connections. Position the airflow guides to concentrate airflow to the
processors and their heatsinks.
Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Open the right side panel to make sure the SCA backplanes are properly
installed and all connections have been made.
1. Remove the right chassis side panel:
To access the drive bays, remove the right side panel (when facing
the front of the chassis) by following the same procedures described
on the previous page for removing the left side panel. You will also
have to open the front doors on the right side of the chassis to
access the front of the drive bays. These doors may be secured with
a keylock located just below the system LEDs.
2. Install a CDROM and floppy disk drives:
See page 6-10 if you need to add a CDROM and/or floppy disk drive to
the system.
2-2
Chapter 2: Quick Setup
3. Check the SCSI disk drives:
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have
some SCSI drives already installed. If you need to install SCSI drives
or wish to change the channel configuration, please refer to page 6-6.
The drives are defaulted to a dual channel (channels A and B)
configuration.
4. Check the airflow:
Because most of the excess cabling is kept on this side of the
chassis, you should check to make sure all cables have been routed in
such a way that they do not block the airflow generated by the fans.
5. Supply power to the system:
The last thing you must do is supply power to the system. Plug all
three power cords from the three power supplies into a high-quality
power strip that offers protection from electrical noise and surges.
2-3
Installing the Operating System
The SuperServer 8050 is normally shipped without an operating system
(OS) installed. This is the last thing you need to do to make the system
operational. The OS is normally installed with a CDROM. Refer to the
documentation that came with your operating system to install it in the SuperServer 8050.

Overview
There are several LEDs on the front control panel as well as others on the
power supply units, the SCSI drives and the motherboard to keep you constantly informed of the overall status of the system as well as the activity
and health of specific components. There are also three switches that
allow you to take action based on the information provided by these LEDs.
This chapter explains the meanings of all LED indicators and audible alarms
and the appropriate responses you may need to take.
3-2
Switches
The front control panel has three push-button switches: a power on/
off switch, an alarm disable switch and a reset switch. These are accessed by opening the top right door on the front of the chassis.
l
POWER: This is the main power switch that will turn off the power
supply.
l
ALARM: Depressing the alarm switch will disable the audible alarm
that is generated to notify you of chassis overheating or fan/power supply
failure. The LED indicating the cause of the alarm will remain illuminated
after the alarm is disabled.
l
3-3
RESET: The reset switch reboots the system.
Front Control Panel LEDs
As shown in Figure 3-1, the front control panel of the SC850 chassis has
eight LEDs. These LEDs keep you informed of the status of your system
and indicate the following when illuminated.
l
Power: Indicates power is being supplied to the system.
l
NIC: Indicates network activity on the system.
l
HDD: Indicates IDE drive activity.
3-1
SUPERSERVER 8050 Manual
l
PWR Fault: Indicates a power supply failure. This should be accompanied by an audible alarm, which you can disable with the alarm switch on
the control panel. Inspect the power supply units at the rear of the chassis. The unit with the amber LED illuminated has failed. Refer to Chapter 6
for instructions on replacing the failed unit. Because they are hot-swap
units, you do not need to remove power from the system when replacing.
l
Fan Fail: Indicates a system fan failure. This should be accompanied
by an audible alarm, which you can disable with the alarm switch on the
control panel. When a fan stops working, all the other system fans will
increase their RPM to compensate until the failed unit is replaced. Refer to
Chapter 6 for instructions on replacing system fans. It is unnecessary to
power down the system as these are hot-swap fans. Note: You must use
the exact same brand and rating of fan for replacement. These can be
obtained directly from Supermicro.
l
Overheat: Indicates an overheat condition in the chassis.
l
SCA Channel A: Indicates an overheat condition with SCA SCSI back
plane A (which supports the upper drive bays).
l
SCA Channel B: Indicates an overheat condition with SCA SCSI back
plane B (which supports the lower drive bays).

SCSI Drive LEDs
Each SCSI drive carrier has two LEDs.
l
Green: The green SCSI drive LED indicates drive activity. This LED
should blink on and off when that particular drive is being accessed.
l
Red: If the red LED is illuminated, the drive has experienced a fault or
has crashed. Please refer to Chapter 6 for instructions on replacing failed
SCSI drives.
3-5
Power Supply LEDs
Each of the three units comprising the power supply has a single LED that
can be illuminated either as green or amber.
l
Green: When green, the unit has power applied to it and is operating
normally.
l
Amber: If the LED is amber, it indicates that no power is being applied
to that unit. If system power has been turned off this is normal, however if
the system is powered on and running an amber LED most likely indicates a
failed power unit. First check to make sure the power cord for that unit is
plugged in. If it is, then refer to Chapter 6 for instructions on replacing the
unit. The power unit's fan may continue to run at low speed even if the unit
has failed or has been turned off.
3-6
Motherboard LED
There is only one LED on the motherboard. When illuminated, it indicates
that system power is present on the motherboard. This LED is located just
below the PWR_SEC connector, which is at the top right corner of the
board when installed in the chassis. It provides the same indication as the
Power LED on the front control panel.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect
yourself from harm and the SuperServer 8050 from damage:
l 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.
l Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
l Power should always be disconnected from the system when
removing or installing main system components, such as the
motherboard, the MEC, memory modules and IDE and floppy drives.
When disconnecting power, you should first power down the
system with the operating system first and then unplug the power
cords of all the power supply units in the system.
l 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.
l 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.
l Do not use mats designed to decrease static electrical discharge as
protection from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that
have been designed as electrical insulators.
l The power supply power cords must include a grounding plug and
must be plugged into grounded electrical outlets.

SUPERSERVER 8050 Manual
l Motherboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if
the onboard battery (located near the MEC and IDE#2 connectors) is
installed upside down, which will reverse its polarites. 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.

General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
l Keep the area around the SuperServer 8050 clean and free of
clutter.
l The SuperServer 8050 weighs approx. 84 lbs. (38 kg.) If you have
to lift 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.
l Place side panels and any system components that have been
removed away from the system so that they won't accidentally be
stepped on.
l While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as
neckties and unbuttoned shirt sleeves that can come into contact
with electrical circuitry or be pulled into the one of the cooling fans.
l 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.
l After servicing the system, reinstall all covers and side panels and
ensure all connections have been made.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
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:
l Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
l Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their
antistatic bags until ready for use.
l Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the
antistatic bag.
l 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.
l Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components,
peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
l When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
l Put the motherboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags
when not in use.
l For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis
provides excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case,
the mounting fasteners and the motherboard.

Advanced Motherboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install the S2QR6 motherboard
into a chassis, connect the data and power cables and install add-on cards.
All motherboard jumpers and connections are also described. A layout and
quick reference chart are on pages 5-12 and 5-13. Remember to remount
the side panel when you have finished with the installation to better cool
and protect the system.
Tools Required
The only tools you will need to install the S2QR6 into a chassis are a
long and a short Philips screwdriver.
5-1
Handling the S2QR6 Motherboard
Static electrical discharge can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them
very carefully. Also note that the size and weight of the S2QR6 motherboard can cause it to bend if handled improperly, which may result in damage. To prevent the S2QR6 motherboard 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 motherboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
5-1
SUPERSERVER 8050 Manual
•
For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting
fasteners and the motherboard.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static electrical
damage. When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is
static protected.
5-2
Motherboard Installation
This section explains the first step of physically mounting the S2QR6 into
the SC850 chassis. To remove the motherboard, follow the procedure in
reverse order. Following the steps in the order given will eliminate the most
common problems encountered in such an installation.
1.
Removing the left chassis side panel:
The left side panel (when facing the chassis) must be removed to
access the motherboard side of the chassis. First, make sure the
keylock for the side panels (located at the top rear of the chassis) is
unlocked. Then remove the four screws that secure the lip of the
side panel to the back of the chassis. Grasp the handle at the rear
of the panel and pull straight back about 1/2 inch, at which point the
panel should hit a stop. Swing the top of the panel out and completely lift it away from the chassis. When reinstalling this panel,
make sure the raised holes along the bottom of the chassis fit into
the long holes in the bottom lip of the panel.
2.
Installing metal standoffs and rubber feet:
With the side panel removed, the motherboard tray is directly in front
of you. First, check that the location of all the mounting holes on
both the motherboard and the tray match. Refer to Figure 5-1 for
mounting hole locations. Attach metal standoffs to the holes labeled
"Q" on the motherboard tray. Make sure these metal standoffs either
click in or are screwed in tightly. There are eight additional square
metal standoffs that are required for mounting the DRMs (Dual
Retention Modules), which should be preinstalled. Several square
rubber "feet" must be applied to the motherboard tray to function as
shock absorbers. Attach these feet to the small square outlines on
the tray.

Check compatibility of motherboard ports and I/O shield
The S2QR6 requires a chassis big enough to support a 13" x 18"
motherboard, such as Supermicro's SC850 and SC840. Make sure
that the I/O ports on the motherboard properly align with their
respective holes in the I/O shield at the back of the chassis.
4.
Mounting the motherboard onto the motherboard tray:
Carefully mount the motherboard to the motherboard tray by aligning
the board holes with the metal standoffs you just installed. Insert
screws into all the mounting holes provided and tighten until snug.
Do not use nonmetal washers; metal screws provide an electrical
contact to the motherboard, which grounds it to the chassis.

SUPERSERVER 8050 Manual
5-3
Connecting Cables
Now that the motherboard is installed, the next step is to connect the cables
to the board. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the peripherals and
front control panel, the power fail signal (PWR P) cable and the power
cables.
Connecting Data Cables
Most of the ribbon cables used to transfer data will be routed from
the motherboard to the drive bay side of the chassis. You should
connect these to the motherboard first (make sure the red wires
connect to the pin 1 locations) and then route them through the
rubber-flanged access holes to the drive bay side of the chassis.
(See Chapter 6 for details on connecting these cables to the drive
bay side.) Pull any excess cabling through to the drive bay side to
provide an unobstructed airflow to the motherboard and processors.
The following data cables (with their locations noted) should be
connected. (See the layout on page 5-12 for connector locations.)
l IDE Device Cables (J13 and J14)
l Floppy Drive Cable (J15)
l SCSI Device Cables (JA1, JA3 and JA5)
l Front Control Panel Cable (JF1, see next page)
l Power Fail Signal Cable (PWR P)
Connecting Power Cables
The S2QR6 has two primary power supply connectors: ATX Power
#1 (U21) and ATX Power #2 (U23). You must connect both the
primary and the secondary ATX power connectors to your power
supply. A third power connector (PWR_SEC) is included for extremely power hungry system configurations and requires a 6-pin
power connector. See the layout on page 5-12 for connector
locations.
5-4
Chapter 5: Advanced Motherboard Setup
Connecting the Front Control Panel
The JF1 header on the S2QR6 contains header pins for various front
control panel connectors. See Figure 5-2 for the specific locations of
the speaker, overheat LED, keyboard lock, chassis intrusion, I2C,
network activity LED, power fail, fan fail, 5v standby, power LED, IDE
drive activity LED, power on LED, reset switch, USB0 and alarm reset
headers. Note that even and odd numbered pins are on opposite sides
of the connector. All JF1 wires have been bundled into a single
ribbon cable to simplify this connection. Make sure the red wire plugs
into pin 1 as marked on the board. See pages 5-14 to 5-19 for details
and pin descriptions.

Installing Processors and DRMs
!
Before installing the Pentium III/II Xeon processors,
both DRMs (Dual Retention Modules) must be bolted
through the motherboard and into the chassis to protect the processors from shock and vibration.
1.
Installing airflow guides:
Two airflow guides are used to channel the incoming cooling air directly
to the processors, which generate the most heat. You should see five
sets of holes on the frame behind the hot-plug fans. For a quad processor setup, these guides should be installed in the first and third locations
from the top. To install, first partly release the retention screws. Then,
with the large cutout on the guide nearest you, insert the small tab into
the inside hinge hole and then carefully do the same with the tab nearest
you. Finish by tightening the retention screws until snug.
2.
Mounting fans to the DRMs (optional):
If your chassis provides good cooling, adding DRM fans is not necessary
(Supermicro DRMs are aerodynamically designed to make the airflow
generated by the system fans sufficient for system cooling). If you want
to add fans to the DRMs, mount them before attaching the DRMs to the
motherboard. Add either two or four to each DRM - two should be
enough in most cases.
3.
Installing DRMs (Dual Retention Modules):
Regardless of how many processors you will be using, both DRMs must
be installed. Position the DRMs as indicated in Figure 5-3, using the pegs
on their bases to help align the mounting holes to those on the motherboard. Then insert the DRM mounting screws through the motherboard
and into the motherboard tray, where they should be secured to the
standoffs.
4.
Installing handlebar caps on the Xeon processors:
When attaching the caps (top cross pieces) to function as handlebars for
the Xeon processors, make sure the two mounting screw holes on the
top of each cap face inward. You should test the configuration of the
units before mounting the caps.
5-6
Chapter 5: Advanced Motherboard Setup
5.
Securing the processors:
Beginning with the CPU1 slot, slide the processor(s) into the DRMs and let
it rest in the Slot 2 socket. Then insert the four DRM screws to the base
of each DRM and secure the units by screwing them in firmly.
6.
Empty processor slots:
Terminator cards (TMR-008) must be installed in the processor slot(s) left
empty in 1, 2 and 3-way configurations.

Installing Memory in the MEC
CAUTION
!
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM
modules to prevent any possible damage. The MEC must be
populated in the manner described in Step 2 below.
Memory Support: The S2QR6 supports 128MB/256MB/512MB/ and 1
GB registered ECC DIMM memory modules.
1.
Removing the MEC (Memory Expansion Card):
You should remove the MEC whenever installing or removing DIMMs. The
MEC is attached to a retention plate with seven screws. Do not remove
these. Instead, remove only the two screws that secure the MEC
retention plate to the chassis. After removing the board, place it on an
antistatic bag before inserting the DIMMs.
2.
Populating the MEC:
Important: Because memory is accessed by a four-way interleaving scheme, you must install modules four at a time and in the
order shown in Figure 5-4 and described here: If four DIMMs are to
be installed, you must populate the four Bank0 slots. If eight are to be
installed, you must populate the four Bank0 and the four Bank1 slots, and
so on. All four DIMMs installed in a single bank must be the same brand,
type, size and speed.
3.
Inserting DIMMs:
Insert each DIMM module vertically into its slot. Pay attention to the two
notches along the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the DIMM
module incorrectly. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps
into place in the slot (see Figure 5-5). If you use too much pressure
when inserting the DIMMs you may bend and damage the MEC.
4.
Installing the MEC:
After populating the MEC, carefully install it back into its slot on the
motherboard, making sure it is fully seated. Finish by tightening the two
screws that secure the retention plate to the chassis.

Adding PCI Cards
1.
64-bit PCI slots:
The S2QR6 has six 64-bit PCI slots. Two of these are 66 MHz slots that
are keyed to only accept 66 MHz, 3V PCI cards. The other four 64-bit
slots run at 33 MHz and are backward compatible with 32-bit cards.
2.
PCI card installation:
You are now ready to install your PCI add-on cards. Make sure you
choose the correct slot for the type of card you are installing (see step
1). First, remove the I/O shield for the proper slot. Then fully seat the
card into the slot, pushing down with your thumbs on both sides of the
card. Finish by using a screw to secure the top of the card shield to the
chassis. The I/O shields protect the motherboard and its components
from EMI and aid in proper ventilation, so make sure there is a shield
covering each slot.

DIP Switch 1:
Core/Bus Ratio
Two DIP switches labeled SW1
and SW2 are located on the
S2QR6. Each has four "DIP"
switches. SW1 is used to set the
core/bus ratio. The example on
the right will show you which CPU
Core/Bus Ratio to use. The general rule is to divide the CPU speed
by the bus speed (100 MHz for
the S2QR6). If you have a 550
MHz CPU, dividing it by 100 will
give you a CPU Core/BUS Ratio of
5.5. After determining the CPU
Core/Bus Ratio, refer to Table 521 for the correct settings of DIP
switch 1.

Only DIP switch 1 is functional at
this time. DIP switch 2 should be

Explanation of
Jumpers
Connector
Pins
To modify the operation of the
motherboard, jumpers can be used
to choose between optional settings. Jumpers create shorts between two pins to change the
function of the connector. Pin 1 is
identified with a square solder pad
on the printed circuit board. See

Front Side Bus Speed
The JP1 jumper sets the FSB

at a 100 MHz front side bus
speed, you do not need to change
this setting. Table 5-22 describes
the jumper settings.
Extra Chassis Intrusion
Header
In addition to the one on JF1, another chassis intrusion header is
provided at JP52. If a chassis intrusion condition has been detected, the mouse and keyboard will
be disabled (but no audible alarm
will be activated). All system operations will halt until the intrusion
microswitch is set back to normal.

Static-Sensitive Devices
Static electrical discharge 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 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 motherboard, 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 motherboard.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage.
When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

System Cooling Fans
Four redundant fans (two in each of four fan housings for a total of eight)
are located in the motherboard side of the chassis to provide the air intake
for cooling the system (see Figure 6-4).
System Cooling Fan Failure
Under normal operation, all eight fans run at 80% of their maximum speed,
which supplies sufficient airflow while prolonging fan life. If any fan fails,
the rest will automatically increase their RPM to the full 100% to compensate. An audible alarm and an LED on the front control panel will notify
you of any fan failure. Disable the alarm with the alarm button located by
the control panel. The system cooling fans are hot-swap components,
which allows you to replace them without powering down the system.
Replacing System Cooling Fans
1.
Identifying the failed fan:
To identify and replace a failed fan, you must first remove the left side
panel of the chassis. Look at the back of the circuit board that the fans
plug into. The red LED that is illuminated indicates which fan has failed.
As each fan housing contains two fans, examine it closely to verify which of
the two has failed.
2.
Removing a hot-plug fan housing:
Unplug the fan cable corresponding to the failed fan and remove the fan
housing from the chassis by depressing its locking tab and pulling the unit
straight out. The fan housings come apart in the middle to allow you
access to each set of redundant fans.
3.
Installing a new system fan:
Replace the failed fan with an identical 9-cm, 12 volt fan (available from
Supermicro). After the new fan has been installed, reassemble the fan
housing and plug the housing back into its slot. You should hear it click
into place when fully inserted. Then plug the fan cable back into the
header on the circuit board you removed it from. You should then wind the
excess cable around the tabs on the fan housing to keep it out of the way.
Check that the fan is working properly and that the LEDs on the front
control panel circuit board (Figure 6-3) and the front control panel have
turned off. Finish by replacing the left side chassis panel.

Accessing the Drive Bays
There are two doors on the right front of the chassis that cover the
peripheral and SCSI drive bays. Both are open-hinged for easy removal.
To remove these doors, swing them open to about 90 degrees and then pull
straight out from the hinges. Refer to Figure 6-6 when configuring your
SCSI drives. Note: You must use standard 1" high, 80-pin SCA SCSI
drives in the SuperServer 8050.

!
Exercise 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 airflow holes in the SCSI
backplane.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
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 work to promote proper
airflow for the SCSI drive bays. For this reason, even those carriers
without SCSI drives must remain installed. If you need to add a new SCSI
drive, insert the 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. (See Figure 6-5.)
Figure 6-5. Mounting a SCSI Drive in a Carrier
2.
Installing/removing hot-plug SCSI drives:
Open or remove the lower front door as described above to access the 10
SCSI drive bays. The SCSI drives can be removed and installed without
powering down the system (hot-plug). To remove, first push the release
button located beside the drive LEDs, then swing the burgundy colored

Configuring the hot-plug SCSI drives:
The SCSI backplane has several jumpers and connectors used for assigning IDs to the drives and for configuring them for either single or dual
channel operation. The top drive bay holds the channel A drives and the
bottom bay holds the channel B drives. See Figure 6-3 for the locations of
backplane connectors and jumpers.
Dual channel: Connect the Ultra160 SCSI cables from the motherboard to
the LVD2 connectors on both the A and B SCSI backplanes. Do this by
routing the A channel (as noted on the board) to the A (upper) backplane
and the B channel to the B (lower) backplane so that the LEDs will reflect
status for the correct drives. See the jumper settings in the next section to
finish configuring your SCSI drives for dual channel operation.
Single channel/daisy chain: If you prefer to run all 10 SCSI drives on a
single channel, first connect the Ultra160 cable from the SCSI controller to
the LVD2 connector on backplane A. Then chain the backplanes together
by connecting another Ultra160 cable from the LVD1 connector on
backplane A to the LVD2 connector on backplane B. See the jumper
settings in the next section to finish configuring your SCSI drives for single
channel operation.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
SCSI Backplane Jumper Settings
The SCSI subsystem is preset to provide dual channel operation. The
easiest way to reconfigure for single channel operation is to simply remove
both JP5 and JP21 from backplane A only (leaving those on backplane B
unchanged) and setting JP24 to different settings on each backplane. See
Figure 6-7 for jumper locations.
l JP5: SCSI SAF-TE ID jumper. This jumper determines how the
backplane assigns IDs to the drives.
ON: SCSI SAF-TE ID set to 8. OFF: SCSI SAF-TE ID set to 6.
Dual Channel: Set JP5 to the same pins on both backplanes.
Single Channel: Set JP5 differently on both backplanes.
l JP21: SCSI termination jumper (ON for termination and OFF for nontermination). SCSI channels must be terminated to operate. The termination settings must be changed when reconfiguring channels.
Dual Channel: Set JP21 to ON on both back planes to provide the
termination for each channel.
Single channel: Set to OFF (remove the jumper) on backplane A and ON
on backplane B to provide a single termination.
l JP24: SCSI ID. This jumper determines how indicator IDs are to be
assigned to the drives. This is used for the front control panel to allow you
to identify the current status of each individual drive.
1-2: SCSI ID's set to 0,1,2,3 and 4.
2-3: SCSI ID's set to 9,10,11,12 and 13.
Dual Channel: N/A (settings have no effect)
Single channel: Set JP24 differently on both backplanes.
l JP9: I2C Link
l JP15: Delay Start
l JP6: Manufacturer's setting. You do not need to change this jumper.

IDE and Floppy Drives
Installing IDE and floppy drives:
The main front chassis door must be opened to access the IDE and floppy
drive bays. To do so, first remove the two front doors as described at the
beginning of this section. Then push the three locking tabs on the right
side of the front chassis panel up to unlock the main chassis door, which
you can then swing out. (You must power down the system before
installing or removing floppy or IDE drives.) Drives mount on rails and
should "click" into place to be correctly and fully installed in their bays.
You should keep the metal shields in place on any unused drives to reduce
EMI and noise and to facilitate the airflow inside the chassis.
•
The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.
•
A red mark on a wire typically designates the location of pin 1.
•
A single floppy disk drive ribbon cable has 34 wires and two connectors to
provide for two floppy disk drives. The connector with twisted wires always
connects to drive A, and the connector that does not have twisted wires
always connects to drive B.

Power Supply Units
The SC850 has a 700 watt power supply that consists of three separate
350 watt units. Two units provide a continuous 700 watts of power to the
system and the third acts as a backup, which will automatically activate if
one of the other two units fail. (The backup unit is automatically determined and controlled by the power supply backplane.) All three are hotswap units, allowing you to replace faulty units without powering down the
system. These power supply units also have an auto-switching capability,
which enables them to automatically sense and operate with either 110 or
220 volt inputs.
Power Supply Failure
If any one of the three power units fails, the third backup unit will automatically power up and enable the system to continue operating without
interruption. An audible alarm will notify you of a power unit failure, which
you can disable by pressing the alarm switch on the front control panel.
The PWR Fail LED will also illuminate and remain on until the failed unit
has been replaced.
Replacing Power Units
1.
Identifying the failed power unit:
Inspect the power units mounted in the rear of the chassis. The unit with
the illuminated amber LED indicates the failed unit and should be replaced
as soon as possible.
2.
Removing a hot-plug power unit:
You do not need to power down the system to replace a failed power unit.
First, unplug the power cord from the failed unit only . Remove the
screws that secure the unit to the chassis and then grasp the handles and
pull the unit completely out.
3.
Installing a new hot-plug power unit:
Replace the failed unit with another unit of the same wattage. It is highly
recommended that all three power units are exactly the same. Gently but
firmly push the new unit all the way into the open bay. Secure it to the
chassis with the screws provided. After connecting the power cable, the
green LED should illuminate to show that the unit is powered up and
operational.

Introduction
This chapter describes the AMIBIOS for ServerWorks Pentium III/II Xeon
400-700 processors with a 100 MHz FSB. The AMI ROM BIOS is stored in
a Flash EEPROM and can be easily upgraded using a floppy disk-based
program.
Configuration Data
The original IBM AT had 64 kbytes of non-volatile memory storage in CMOS
RAM. All AT-compatible systems have at least 64 kbytes of CMOS RAM,
which is usually part of the Real Time Clock. Many systems have 128
kbytes of CMOS RAM.
How Data Is Configured
AMIBIOS provides a Setup utility in ROM that is accessed by pressing <Del>
at the appropriate time during system boot. Setup configures data in CMOS
RAM.
POST Memory Test
Normally, the only visible POST routine is the memory test. The screen that
appears when the system is powered on is shown on the next page.
A BIOS identification string is displayed at the left bottom corner of the
screen below the copyright message.

Change User Password
Change Supervisor Password
The system can be configured so that all users must enter a password
every time the system boots or when the AMIBIOS setup is executed.
You can set either a Supervisor password or a User password. If you
do not want to use a password, just press <Enter> when the password
prompt appears.
The password check option is enabled in the Advanced Setup by
choosing either Always or Setup . The password is stored in CMOS RAM.
You can enter a password by typing it out on the keyboard or by
selecting each letter via the mouse or a pen stylus. Pen access must be
customized for each specific hardware platform.
When you select to change the Supervisor or User password, AMIBIOS
prompts you for the new password. You must set the Supervisor
password before you can set the User password. Enter a 1-6 character
password. (It will not appear on the screen when typed.) Retype the
new password as prompted and press <Enter>. Make sure you write it
down. If you forget it, you must clear CMOS RAM and reset the password.
Change Language Setting
Because this version of BIOS only supports English at this time, this setting
cannot be chosen. Future releases may support other languages.

Appendix A
BIOS Error Beep Codes & Messages
During the POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines, which are performed
each time the system is powered on, errors may occur.
Non-fatal errors are those which, in most cases, allow the system to
continue the boot-up process. The error messages normally appear on
the screen.
Fatal errors are those which will not allow the system to continue the
boot-up procedure. If a fatal error occurs, you should consult with your
system manufacturer for possible repairs.
These fatal errors are usually communicated through a series of audible
beeps. The numbers on the fatal error list, on the following page,
correspond to the number of beeps for the corresponding error. All
errors listed, with the exception of #8, are fatal errors.
