1-2 Serverboard Features

At the heart of the SuperServer 6023P-i lies the X5DPi-G2, a dual Intel Xeon processor serverboard designed to provide maximum performance. Below are the main features of the X5DPi-G2.

Chipset

The Intel E7501 chipset is a high-performance chipset with a performance and feature-set designed for mid-range, dual processor servers. 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). See Figure 1-1 for a block diagram of the chipset.

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 DDR-266 memory interface, which provides a total bandwidth of 4.2 GB/s (3.2 GB/s for DDR-200). 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, a

System Management Bus controller and an AC'97 compliant interface.

The P64H2 PCI-X Hub provides a 16-bit connection to the MCH for highperformance IO capability and two 64-bit PCI-X interfaces.

Processors

The X5DPi-G2 supports single or dual Intel Xeon 512K L2 cache processors of up to 3.20 GHz at a 533/400 MHz FSB. Please refer to the support section of our web site for a complete listing of supported processors (http:// www.supermicro.com/support/).

Server Installation

2-1 Overview

This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer

6023P-i 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 SuperServer 6023P-i 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 6023P-i

You should inspect the box the SuperServer 6023P-i 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

6023P-i. 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 6023P-i 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

S

UPER

S

ERVER 6023P-i 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 hard 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.

Chapter 2: Server Installation

2-4 Installing the SuperServer 6023P-i into a Rack

This section provides information on installing the SuperServer 6023P-i into a rack unit. If the 6023P-i 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 6023P-i 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

6023P-i. Each of these assemblies consist of three sections: an inner fixed chassis rail that secures to the 6023P-i (A) and an outer fixed rack rail that secures directly to the rack itself (B). A sliding rail guide sandwiched between the two should remain attached to the fixed rack rail.

(See Figure 2-1.) The A and B rails must be detached from each other to install.

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. Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails

2-3

S

UPER

S

ERVER 6023P-i Manual

Installing the Chassis Rails:

Position the fixed chassis rail sections you just removed along the side of the 6023P-i making sure the screw holes line up. Note that these two rails are left/right specific. Screw the rail securely to the side of the chassis (see Figure 2-2). Repeat this procedure for the other rail on the other side of the chassis. You will also need to attach the rail brackets when installng into a telco rack.

Locking Tabs: As you have seen, 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

Installing the Rack Rails:

Determine where you want to place the SuperServer 6023P-i in the rack.

(See Rack and Server Precautions in Section 2-3.) Position the fixed rack rail/sliding rail guide assemblies at the desired location in the rack, keeping the sliding rail guide facing the inside of the rack. Screw the assembly securely to the rack using the brackets provided. Attach the other assem-

2-4

Chapter 2: Server Installation bly to the other side of the rack, making sure both are at the exact same height and with the rail guides facing inward.

Installing the Server into the Rack:

You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack unit. The next step is to install the server into the rack. Do this by lining up the rear of the chassis rails with the front of the rack rails.

Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on both sides (you may have to depress the locking tabs when inserting).

See Figure 2-3.

When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the locking tabs "click". Finish by inserting and tightening the thumbscrews that hold the front of the server to the rack.

ERVER 6023P-i Manual

Installing the Server into a Telco Rack:

If you are installing the SuperServer 6023P-i into a Telco type rack, follow the directions given on the previous pages for rack installation. The only difference in the installation procedure will be the positioning of the rack brackets to the rack. They should be spaced apart just enough to accommodate the width of the telco rack.

Figure 2-4. Installing the Server into a Telco Rack

Chapter 2: Server Installation

2-5 Checking the Serverboard Setup

After you install the 6023P-i in the rack, you will need to open the unit to make sure the motherboard is properly installed and all the connections have been made.

1. Accessing the inside of the 6023P-i (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. There is a large rectangular recess in the middle front of the top cover to help you push the cover away from you until it stops. 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 should 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 6023P-i 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. See Chapter 5 for details on cable connections. Also, check the air seals for damage. The air seals are located under the blower fan and beneath the frame cross section that separates the drive bay area from the serverboard area of the chassis.

2-6 Checking the Drive Bay Setup

Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives 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. Hard disk drives can be installed and removed from the front of the chassis without removing the top chassis cover.

2-8

Chapter 2: Server Installation

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 airflow:

Airflow is provided by four heavy-duty 8-cm hot-swappable 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.

4. Supplying power to the system:

The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug the power cord from the power supply unit 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).

4-1 Electrical Safety Precautions

Chapter 4: System Safety

!

Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm and the SuperServer 6023P-i 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 serverboard, 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.

4-1

S

UPER

ERVER 6023P-i Manual

! The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and must be plugged into grounded electrical outlets.

! Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the onboard battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarities. On the X5DPi-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 may have come equipped with a

CD-ROM 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 6023P-i clean and free of clutter.

! The SuperServer 6023P-i weighs approximately 43 lbs (19.5 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.

! 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 serverboard 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.

Chapter 5

Advanced Serverboard Setup

This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to the X5DPi-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 X5DPi-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 motherboard, 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.

5-2 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

X5DPi-G2 can support either one or two Xeon processors of up to 3.20 GHz. 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 d a m a g e t h e C P U s o c k e t w h e n power is applied. (Install a processor into CPU #1 socket first.)

Socket lever

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).

Pin 1

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.

Socket lever in locked position

5-2

Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup

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 completely flat, 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 each retention clip into its proper 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 each clip. See Figures 5-2a and 5-2b for diagrams of the retention clips and the heatsink installation procedure.

IMPORTANT: Please note that special, new silver heat sink 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. In addition, you should not use these new retention clips with Xeon 400 MHz FSB processors (even in 604-pin

CPU sockets) as they will be too tight and may damage the CPU socket.

6. If installing two processors, repeat these steps to install the second processor in the CPU #2 slot.

Figure 5-1. 604-pin PGA Socket: Empty and with Processor Installed

Warning!

Make sure you lift the lever completely when installing the CPU. If the lever is only partly raised, damage to the socket or CPU may result.

5-3 Connecting Cables

Now that the processors are installed, the next step is to connect the cables to the board. 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 Cables (IDE#1 and IDE#2)

! Floppy Drive Cable (JP7)

! Control Panel Cable (JF2, see next page)

Connecting Power Cables

The X5DPi-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 motherboard. 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.

UPERSERVER 6023P-i 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.

5-5 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.

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.

3. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the slot. Repeat for all modules (see step 1 above).

Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup

5-6 Adding PCI Cards

1.

64-bit PCI slot:

The X5DPi-G2 has a single 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X SXB slot. Three standard size PCI-X cards can be installed into the riser card and be supported by the SC822 chassis backplane.

2.

64-bit PCI card installation:

The system should be powered down when adding or removing PCI cards. Begin by removing the top cover of the chassis. You will see a metal enclosure that houses the riser card. Remove this housing by lifting the two plastic levers at either end and pulling the housing up and out of the chassis. The riser card is attached to the inside top of the housing. The riser card has three slots - you can change the frequency settings of slots PCI-X #2 and #3 with jumpers S1 and P1, respectively, which are located on the riser card. The default setting is PCI-X 100

MHz. A table for the S1/P1 jumper settings has been silk-screened on the riser card. The speed of PCI-X #1 is set with jumpers on the motherboard (see Section 5-9).

Release the latch that secures the PCI slot I/O shields to the housing by pulling it away from the housing. Remove the shield(s) and insert a PCI card(s) into the desired slot(s) on the riser card, pushing down with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card. After all cards have been added, push the latch back into position. Replace the housing in the serverboard making sure the plastic levers properly catch on the chassis, then push them down to lock the housing in place. Finish by replacing the top chassis cover and powering up the system.

Note: The PCI slot I/O shields protect the serverboard and its components from EMI and aid in proper ventilation, so make sure there is always a shield covering each slot. Also, do not use the riser card included with the 6023P-i with any other serverboard and do not use any other riser card in the 6023P-i.

Jumpers

To modify the operation of the serverboard, jumpers can be u s e d t o c h o o s e b e t w e e n o p t i o n a l s e t t i n g s . J u m p e r s create shorts between two pins to change the function of the connector. Pin 1 is identified w i t h a s q u a r e s o l d e r p a d o n the printed circuit board. See the serverboard layout page for jumper locations.

Advanced Chassis Setup

This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform maintenance on the SC822 chassis. For component installation, follow the steps in the order given to eliminate the most common problems encountered. If some steps are unnecessary, skip ahead to the step that follows.

Tools Required

The only tool you will need to install components and perform maintenance is a Philips screwdriver.

6-1 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.

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.

The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected to the JF2 connector on the serverboard to provide you with system status indications. A ribbon cable has bundled these wires together to simplify the connection. Connect the cable from JF2 on the serverboard to JP4 on the

Control Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 on both JF2 and JP4. Pull all excess cabling out of the airflow path.

The LEDs inform you of system status. See "Chapter 3: System Interface" for details on the LEDs and the control panel buttons. Details on JF2 can be found in the "Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Installation."

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup

6-3 System Fans

Four heavy-duty 8-cm fans provide all the cooling needed for the Super-

Server 6023P-i. 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 3400 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 X5DPi-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-swappable on the X5DPi-G2 serverboard.

2.

Installing a new fan:

Replace the failed fan with an identical 8-cm, 12 volt fan (available from

Supermicro, p/n Fan-044). 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-swappable fan feature will cause the fan to start immediately upon being connected to its header on the serverboard.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup

Hard Drive Installation

1.

Hard drive support:

Hard disk drives may installed in the six internal 3.5" drive bays as well as in the 5.25" drive bay. Hard drives should be mounted in drive carriers for installation, to help promote proper airflow and shield against

EMI. For this reason, even empty carriers without hard drives installed should remain in the chassis. You must power down the system before installing or removing any hard drive.

2.

Mounting a hard drive in a drive carrier:

IDE hard drives are not hot-swappable, meaning system power must be turned off before installing and/or removing them. After power is removed from the system, remove the top cover of the chassis to access the drive carriers, which may then be unscrewed and taken out. When installing a hard disk drive, position it in the carrier with the printed circuit board side toward the carrier and with the drive's mounting holes aligned with those in the carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with four screws, as shown in Figure 6-3. Connect the drive's ribbon and power cables to the motherboard, then replace the chassis cover before powering on.

3.

Removing hard drives:

To remove a hard drive and its carrier, first power down the system and then remove the top cover of the chassis. Detach the ribbon and power cables from the drive. Unscrew the retention screw at the top center of the drive, then push the drive carrier out from the back until you can grasp and pull it out through the front of the chassis. Attach a new component to the carrier if desired (as in step 2), then reverse the drive carrier removal procedure described in this step to reinstall the carrier.

Remember to screw in the retention screw. Replace the top cover when finished.

1.

Mounting the component in the drive carrier

A component such as an IDE hard drive can be mounted in the 5 1/4" drive bay. 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. 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.

2.

Installing/removing 5 1/4" drive bay component

A single 5 1/4" IDE drive bay is located in the front of the chassis, making it easily accessible for installation and removal. This component is not hot-swappable, meaning system power must be turned off before installing and/or removing. To remove the drive carrier, first power down the system and then remove the top cover of the chassis. Unscrew the retention screw at the top center of the drive, then push the drive carrier out from the back until you can grasp and pull it out through the front of the chassis. Attach the component to the carrier if installing. Then reverse the drive carrier removal procedure to install the drive, making sure you screw in the retention screw. Replace the top cover when finished.

Drive Cables

• The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.

• A color mark on a cable 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.

6-5 Power Supply

The SuperServer 6023P-i has a 400 watt power supply. This power supply has an auto-switching capability, which enables it to automatically sense and operate at either 110 or 220 volts. A power on/off switch is located at the back of the power supply. Turning this power switch to the off position will remove both main and standby power from the system.

Power Supply Failure

If the power supply unit fails, the system will shut down and you will need to replace the power supply unit. Replacement units can be ordered directly from Supermicro. See contact information in Chapter 1

Removing/Replacing the Power Supply

1.

Removing the power supply:

First unplug the power cord from the system. Remove the chassis cover by pressing the two release buttons on the top of the chassis, near the front, and push the chassis top rearward about one inch. To remove the failed power unit, unplug the power cord that connects to the power supply. Then, remove all screws that connect the power supply to the chassis (two at the rear, two at the side, and one on the bottom). The power supply can then be lifted straight upward from the chassis.

2.

Installing a new power supply:

Replace the failed unit with another unit of the same input voltage, output voltage and wattage. It is highly recommended to replace it with exactly the same model power supply. Carefully insert the new unit into position in the chassis and secure it with the five screws, as noted in the paragraph above. Before reconnecting the power cord, make certain that the power switch on the power supply is in the "off" position. Then reconnect the power cord, replace the chassis top cover and reposition the unit back into the rack. Finish by turning the power switch on the power supply "on", and then depress the power button on the chassis front panel.

Chapter 7

BIOS

7-1 Introduction

This chapter describes the PhoenixBIOS™ Setup utility for the X5DPi-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 t o t h e M a n u a l D o w n l o a d a r e a o f t h e S u p e r m i c r o w e b s i t e

<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.

Appendix A

BIOS POST Messages

During the Power-On Self-Test (POST), the BIOS will check for problems. If a problem is found, the BIOS will activate an alarm or display a message. The following is a list of such BIOS messages.

Failure Fixed Disk

Fixed disk is not working or not configured properly. Check to see if fixed disk is attached properly. Run Setup. Find out if the fixed-disk type is correctly identified.

Stuck key

Stuck key on keyboard.

Keyboard error

Keyboard not working.

ERVER 6023P-i Manual

System CMOS checksum bad - Default configuration used

System CMOS has been corrupted or modified incorrectly, perhaps by an application program that changes data stored in CMOS. The BIOS installed Default

Setup Values. If you do not want these values, enter Setup and enter your own values. If the error persists, check the system battery or contact your dealer.

System timer error

The timer test failed. Requires repair of system board.

Real time clock error

Real-Time Clock fails BIOS hardware test. May require board repair.

Check date and time settings

BIOS found date or time out of range and reset the Real-Time Clock. May require setting legal date (1991-2099).

Previous boot incomplete - Default configuration used

Previous POST did not complete successfully. POST loads default values and offers to run Setup. If the failure was caused by incorrect values and they are not corrected, the next boot will likely fail. On systems with control of wait

states, improper Setup settings can also terminate POST and cause this error on the next boot. Run Setup and verify that the waitstate configuration is correct.

This error is cleared the next time the system is booted.

Memory Size found by POST differed from CMOS

Memory size found by POST differed from CMOS.

Diskette drive A error

Diskette drive B error

Drive A: or B: is present but fails the BIOS POST diskette tests. Check to see that the drive is defined with the proper diskette type in Setup and that the diskette drive is attached correctly.

Incorrect Drive A type - run SETUP

Type of floppy drive A: not correctly identified in Setup.

Incorrect Drive B type - run SETUP

Type of floppy drive B: not correctly identified in Setup.

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 port-

80 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.
