8 GB of unbuffered ECC or non-ECC DDR2-667/533/400 SDRAM. Memory can
be installed in either a single or a dual channel (interleaved) configuration, which
requires modules of the same size and speed to be installed in pairs. Please refer
to Chapter 5 for details on installing memory.
SCSI Subsystem [5015P-8(R)]
The PDSMP-8 includes onboard Adaptec AIC-7902 dual-channel SCSI controller,
which supports four 80-pin SCA Ultra320 SCSI hard drives. (Standard 1" drives
are supported. SCA = Single Connection Attachment.) The SCSI drives are connected to an SCA backplane that provides power, bus termination and configuration
settings. The SCSI drives are hot-swappable units.
1-2
Chapter 1: Introduction
Serial ATA [5015P-T(R)]
The PDSMP-i uses an SATA controller integrated in the ICH7R portion of the
chipset to provide a four-port Serial ATA subsystem, which is RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10
supported. The SATA drives are hot-swappable units.
Notes: The operating system you use must have RAID support to enable the hotswap capability and RAID function of the Serial ATA drives.
Onboard Controllers/Ports
One floppy drive controller and a single-channel ATA/100 controller are provided to
support up to two IDE hard drives or ATAPI devices. A second IDE slot can be used
for compact flash cards (only). The color-coded I/O ports include one COM port, a
VGA (monitor) port, two USB 2.0 ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports and two
gigabit Ethernet ports. An external SCSI port is also included on the PDSMP-8.

Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/
5015P-T(R) 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 System
You should inspect the box the SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) 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 5015P-8(R)/5015PT(R). 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. Be sure to read the Rack
and Server Precautions in the next section.
2-3
Preparing for Setup
The box the SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) 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 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) User's 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.
- This product is for installation only in a Restricted Access Location (dedicated
equipment rooms, service closets and the like).
- This product is not suitable for use with visual display work place devices
acccording to §2 of the the German Ordinance for Work with Visual Display
Units.
!
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 SATA drives and power supply modules 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
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.).

This section provides information on installing the 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) into a
rack unit with the rack rails provided. If the system 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.
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 in the rack mounting kit. Each
assembly consists of two sections: an inner fixed chassis rail that secures directly
to the server chassis and an outer fixed rack rail that secures directly to the rack
itself (see Figure 2-1). Two pairs of short brackets to be used on the front side of
the outer rails are also included.
Installing the Inner Rails
Both the left and right side inner rails have been pre-attached to the chassis.
Proceed to the next step. A
Figure 2-1. Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
(right side rail shown)

Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Outer Rails
Begin by measuring the distance from the front rail to the rear rail of the rack. Attach
a short bracket to the front side of the right outer rail and a long bracket to the rear
side of the right outer rail. Adjust both the short and long brackets to the proper
distance so that the rail can fit snugly into the rack. Secure the short bracket to the
front side of the outer rail with two M4 screws and the long bracket to the rear side
of the outer rail with three M4 screws. Repeat these steps for the left outer rail.
Locking Tabs
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 the Rack Rails

SUPERSERVER 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) User's Manual
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.

Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Server into a Telco Rack
To install the SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) into a Telco type rack, use two
L-shaped brackets on either side of the chassis (four total). First, determine how far
the server will extend out the front of the rack. Larger chassis should be positioned
to balance the weight between front and back. If a bezel is included on your server,
remove it. Then attach the two front brackets to each side of the chassis, then the
two rear brackets positioned with just enough space to accommodate the width of
the rack. Finish by sliding the chassis into the rack and tightening the brackets to
the rack. See Figure 2-4.

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After you install the 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) in the rack, you will need to open the
top cover to make sure the serverboard is properly installed and all the connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the inside of the system (see Figure 2-5)
First, release the retention screws that secure the system to the rack. Grasp the
two handles on either side and pull the system 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 (1). Push the cover away from you (toward the rear of the chassis)
until it stops (2). You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access
to the inside of the server.
To remove the system from the rack completely, depress the locking tabs in the
chassis rails (push the right-side tab down and the left-side tab up) to continue to
pull the system out past the locked position.
2. Check the CPUs (processors)
You may have a processor already installed in the serverboard. The processor
needs a heatsink installed. See Chapter 5 for instructions on processor and heatsink
installation.
3. Check the system memory
Your 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.

Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the SCSI/SATA
drives and SCSI/SATA 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 DVDROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove the top chassis cover. The
SCSI/SATA disk drives can be installed and removed from the front of the chassis
without removing the top chassis cover.
2. DVD-ROM and floppy disk drives
A slim DVD-ROM and floppy drive should be preinstalled in your server. Refer
to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a DVD-ROM and/or floppy disk drive to the
system.
3. Check the SCSI/SATA disk drives
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one or
more drives already installed. If you need to install SCSI/SATA drives, please
refer to Chapter 6.
4. Check the airflow
Airflow is provided by three sets of 40-mm fans (each set of fans consists of two
fans that are mounted back to back). 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 cord(s) from the power supply module(s) 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) source.

Overview
There are several LEDs on the chassis control panel as well as others on the
SCSI/SATA drive carriers 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 two buttons on the chassis control panel. This chapter explains the meanings
of all LED indicators and the appropriate response you may need to take.
3-2
Control Panel Buttons
There are two push-buttons located on the front of the chassis. These are (in order
from left to right) a UID button and a power on/off button.
UID: Depressing the UID (unit identifier) button illuminates an LED on both
the front and rear of the chassis for easy system location in large stack configurations. The LED will remain on until the button is pushed a second time. Another
UID button on the rear of the chassis serves the same function.
POWER: This is the main power button, which is used to apply or turn off
the main system power. Turning off system power with this button removes the
main power but keeps standby power supplied to the system.

Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC816S-400(R)/SC816T-400(R) chassis has six LEDs, which 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.
UID: This LED turns on when either the front or the rear UID button is pushed.
Pushing either button a second time will turn this LED off.
Overheat/Fan Fail: When this LED flashes it indicates a fan failure. When
on continuously (on and not flashing) it indicates an overheat condition, which may
be caused by cables obstructing the airflow in the system or the ambient room
temperature being too warm. Check the routing of the cables and make sure all
fans are present and operating normally. You should also check to make sure that
the chassis covers are installed. Finally, verify that the heatsinks are installed properly (see Chapter 5). This LED will remain flashing or on as long as the overheat
condition exists.

Chapter 3: System Interface
HDD: Indicates hard drive activity. On the SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/5015P-
T(R) this light indicates SCSI/SATA and/or DVD-ROM drive activity when flashing.
Power: Indicates power is being supplied to the system's power supply
module(s). With the 5015P-8/5015P-T, this LED should always be green when the
system is operating. On the 5015P-8R/5015P-TR, this LED turns amber in the event
of a power supply failure or if a power supply cord is disconnected or loose.
3-4
SCSI/SATA Drive Carrier LEDs
5015P-8(R): Each SCSI drive carrier has two LEDs.
Green: When illuminated, the green LED on the front of the SCSI drive carrier indicates drive activity. A connection to the SCSI SCA backplane enables this
LED to blink on and off when that particular drive is being accessed.
Red: The SAF-TE compliant backplane activates the red LED to indicate a
drive failure. If one of the SCSI drives fail, you should be notified by your system
management software. Please refer to Chapter 6 for instructions on replacing failed
SCSI drives.
5015P-T(R): Each Serial ATA drive carrier has a green LED. When illuminated, this
green LED (on the front of the Serial ATA drive carrier) indicates drive activity. A
connection to the Serial ATA backplane enables this LED to blink on and off when
that particular drive is being accessed. Please refer to Chapter 6 for instructions
on replacing failed SATA drives.
Note: The second LED on the SATA carriers is not used.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm
and the SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) 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 DVD-ROM and floppy drives (not necessary for SCSI and
SATA 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 modules 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.

SUPERSERVER 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) User's 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 (see Figure
4-1). 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.
Mainboard replaceable soldered-in fuses: Self-resetting PTC (Positive
Temperature Coefficient) fuses on the mainboard must be replaced by trained
service technicians only. The new fuse must be the same or equivalent as the
one replaced. Contact technical support for details and support.

General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
Keep the area around the SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) clean and
free of clutter.
The SuperServer 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) weighs approximately 57(60) lbs
(25.9/27.3 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.
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 any board from its 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.

Handling the 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.

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.
SCSI cable, 5015P-8(R) only (JA1)
Serial ATA 4-lane cables, 5015P-T(R) only (JSM1)
DVD/CD-ROM cable (JIDE1)
Floppy drive cable (JFDD1)
Control panel cable (JF1, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The PDSMP-8/PDSMP-i has a 20-pin primary ATX power supply connector designated "J43" for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate
connector from the power supply to the J43 connector to supply power to the
serverboard. The 12V 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.

JF1 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See Figure 5-1
for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons and LED indicators.
Note that even and odd numbered pins are on opposite sides of each header.
All JF1 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

Installing Memory
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules: http://
www.supermicro.com/support/resources/
CAUTION
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM modules to
prevent any possible damage.
DIMM Installation (Figures 5-3a and 5-3b)
1. Insert each DDR2 memory module vertically into its slot. Pay attention to the
notch along the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the module incorrectly.
(See support information below.)
2. Gently press down on the memory module until it snaps into place.
Memory Support
The PDSMP-8/i supports unbuffered ECC DDR2-667/533/400 type SDRAM. Both
interleaved and non-interleaved schemes are supported, so you may populate any
number of DIMM slots. Populating DIMM#1A and DIMM#1B and/or DIMM#2A and
DIMM#2B with memory modules of the same size and speed will result in dual
channel, two-way interleaved memory, which is faster than single channel, noninterleaved memory. When ECC memory is used, it may take 25-40 seconds for
the VGA to display.
Notes:
1. Due to chipset limitations, 8GB memory can only be supported by the following
operating systems:
32-Bit: Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise
Edition
64-Bit: Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition, Windows XP Profes
sional
x64 Edition, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition
2. You may install 2 GB size DIMMs in each slot; however, only with DDR2-533
modules.
3. Some old versions of DDR2-667 may not match Intel's On-Die-Temperature requirement and will automatically be down-graded to run at 533 MHz. If this occurs,
contact your memory vendor to check the ODT value.

Adding PCI Cards
1. PCI slots
Your system includes riser cards to acommodate the use of one or two PCI expansion cards. The 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) supports the use of one standard size 133
MHz PCI-X or PCI-Express x4 add-on card and one low profile 100 MHz PCI-X
add-on card.
2.PCI card installation
Before installing a PCI add-on card, make sure you install it into the riser card
and slot that supports the speed of the card (see step 1 above - you may need to
change the installed riser card with a boxed one to support the type of add-on card
you wish to install). The system should be powered off when installing cards.
Begin by removing the top chassis cover. Both riser cards are attached to a bracket
that runs length-wise through the chassis. Remove the three screws that secure
the riser cards to the rear of the chassis and the screw that secures the bracket
to the chassis (see Figure 5-4) then lift the bracket/riser card assembly from the
chassis. Insert the PCI card(s) into the correct riser slot(s), pushing down with your
thumbs evenly on both sides of the card - note that each add-on card attaches to
the riser card with a single screw. After the card(s) have been installed, position
the bracker/riser card assembly back on the chassis making sure the cards insert
properly into the slots on the board, then secure it with the same four screws you
removed previously. Finish by replacing the chassis cover.

Advanced Chassis Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform maintenance on the SC816S-400(R)/SC816T-400(R) 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 next step.
Tools Required
The only tool you will need to install components and perform maintenance is a
Philips screwdriver.
6-1
Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic 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.

Control Panel
The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected to the
JF1 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 JF1 on the serverboard to the appropriate header on the Control
Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 on both
connectors. Pull all excess cabling out of the airflow path.
The control panel LEDs inform you of system status. See "Chapter 3: System
Interface" for details on the LEDs and the control panel buttons. Details on JF1
can be found in "Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup."

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup

System Fans
Three 40-mm fans provide the cooling for the 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R). Each fan
unit is actually made up of two fans joined back-to-back, which rotate in opposite
directions. This counter-rotating action generates exceptional airflow and works to
dampen vibration levels. These fans can adjust their speed according to the heat
level sensed in the system, which results in more efficient and quieter fan operation. Fan speed is controlled by a setting in BIOS (see Chapter 7). Each fan in a
set has its own separate tachometer.
It is very important that the chassis top cover is properly installed for the airflow to
circulate properly through the chassis and cool the components.
System Fan Failure
If a fan fails, the remaining fans will ramp up to full speed and the overheat/fan
fail LED on the control panel will blink on and off. Replace any failed fan at your
earliest convenience with the same type and model (the system can continue to run
with a failed fan). Remove the top chassis cover while the system is still running
to determine which of the two fan units has failed. Then power down the system
before replacing a fan. Removing the power cord(s) is also recommended as a
safety precaution.
Replacing System Cooling Fans
1. Removing a fan
With the system powered down, first remove the chassis cover (refer to page 6-7)
and unplug all the fan cables from the serverboard. Grasp the rectangular housing
that holds all the fan units and lift it out of the chassis (see Figure 6-2). Push the
failed fan out through the bottom of the fan housing.
2. Installing a new fan
Replace the failed fan with an identical 40-mm, 12 volt fan (available from
Supermicro: p/n FAN-0085). Push the new fan into the vacant space in the housing
while making sure the arrows on the top of the fan (indicating air direction) point
in the same direction as the arrows on the other fans. Reposition the fan housing
back over the two mounting posts in the chassis, then reconnect the fan wires to
the same chassis fan headers you removed them from. Power up the system and
check that the fan is working properly and that the LED on the control panel has
turned off. Finish by replacing the chassis cover.

Drive Bay Installation/Removal
Accessing the Drive Bays
SCSI/SATA Drives: Because of their hotswap capability, you do not need to access
the inside of the chassis or power down the system to install or replace SCSI or
SATA drives. Proceed to the next step for instructions.
Note: You must use standard 1" high, SCSI/SATA drives in the SuperServer 5015P8(R)/5015P-T(R).
DVD/CD-ROM/Floppy Disk Drives: For installing/removing a DVD/CD-ROM or
floppy disk drive, you will need to gain access to the inside of the system by removing the top cover of the chassis. Proceed to the "DVD/CD-ROM and Floppy Drive
Installation" section later in this chapter for instructions.
Note: Only "slim" DVD/CD-ROM and floppy drives will fit into the 5015P-8(R)/5015PT(R).

1. Mounting a SCSI/SATA drive in a drive carrier
The SCSI and SATA drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation and removal from the chassis. These carriers also help promote proper
airflow for the Serial ATA drive bays. For this reason, even empty carriers without
drives installed must remain in the chassis. To add a new drive, install it into the
carrier with the printed circuit board side facing down so that the mounting holes
align with those in the carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with six screws, as
shown in Figure 6-3.

Use caution when working around the SCSI/SATA 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/SATA hard drives are
installed, all drive carriers must remain in the drive bays for
proper airflow.

2. Installing/removing hot-swap SCSI/SATA drives
The SCSI/SATA drive carriers are all easily accessible at the front of the chassis.
These hard drives are hot-pluggable, meaning they can be removed and installed
without powering down the system. To remove a carrier, push the release button
located beside the drive LEDs. Then swing the colored handle fully out and use it
to pull the unit straight out (see Figure 6-4).
Note: Your operating system must have RAID support to enable the hot-plug capability of the SCSI/SATA drives.

!
Important: All of the SCSI/SATA drive carriers must remain in
the drive bays to maintain proper cooling airflow.
SCSI/SATA Backplane
The SCSI/SATA drives plug into a backplane that provides power, drive ID and bus
termination. A RAID controller can be used with the backplane to provide data
security. The operating system you use must have RAID support to enable the
hot-swap capability of the drives. The backplane is already preconfigured, so there
are no jumpers or switches present on it.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
DVD/CD-ROM and Floppy Drive Installation
The top cover of the chassis must be opened to gain full access to the DVD/CDROM and floppy drive bays. The 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) accomodates only slim
DVD/CD-ROM and floppy drives. Side mounting brackets are needed to mount the
DVD/CD-ROM drive in the server.
You must power down the system before installing or removing a floppy or DVD/
CD-ROM drive. First, release the retention screws that secure the server 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 and at the same time, 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.
With the chassis cover removed, unplug the power and data cables from the drive
you want to remove. Then locate the locking tab at the rear of the drive. It will be
on the left side of the drive when viewed from the front of the chassis. Pull the tab
away from the drive and push the drive unit out the front of the chassis. Add a new
drive by following this procedure in reverse order. You may hear a faint *click* of the
locking tab when the drive is fully inserted. Remember to reconnect the data and
power cables to the drive before replacing the chassis cover and restoring power
to the system. Please be aware of the following:
•
The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.
•
A color mark on a cable typically designates the location of pin 1.

Power Supply
5015P-8R/5015P-TR
The SuperServer 5015P-8R/5015P-TR has a redundant 400 watt power supply
configuration consisting of two hot-swappable power modules. The power supply
modules have an auto-switching capability, which enables them to automatically
sense and operate with a 100V - 240V input voltage.
Power Supply Failure
If either of the two power supply modules fail, the other module will take the full
load and allow the system to continue operation without interruption. The Power
On LED on the control panel will turn amber and remain so until the failed module
has been replaced. Replacement modules can be ordered directly from Supermicro
(see contact information in the Preface). The power supply modules have a hotswap capability, meaning you can replace the failed module without powering down
the system.
Removing/Replacing the Power Supply
You do not need to shut down the system to replace a power supply module. The
redundant feature will keep the system up and running while you replace the failed
hot-swap module. Replace with the same model - SP400-1R (p/n PWS-0064),
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 module. To remove the
failed power module, first locate the colored release tab (1). Push the tab to the right
(2) and then pull the module straight out with the handle provided (3) (see Figure
6-5, single power supply server shown). The power supply wiring was designed to
detach automatically when the module is pulled from the chassis.
2. Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed hot-swap module with another SP400-1R power supply module.
Simply push the new power supply module into the power bay until you hear a click.
Finish by plugging the AC power cord back into the module.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
5015P-8/5015P-T
The SuperServer 5015P-8/5015P-T has a single 400 watt cold-swap power supply,
which is auto-switching capable. This enables it to automatically sense and operate
with a 100v - 240v input voltage. An amber light will be illuminated on the power
supply when the power is off. An illuminated green light indicates that the power
supply is operating.
Power Supply Failure
If the power supply module fails, the system will shut down and you will need to
replace the module. Replacements can be ordered directly from Supermicro (see
contact information in the Preface). As there is only one power supply module in
the 5015P-8/5015P-T, power must be completely removed from the server before
removing and replacing the power supply for whatever reason.
Removing/Replacing the Power Supply
1. Removing the power supply
First turn the power switch on the control panel off, then unplug the power cord from
the system. To remove the failed power module, first locate the colored release
tab (1). Push the tab to the right (2) and then pull the module straight out with the
handle provided (3) (see Figure 6-5). The power supply wiring was designed to
detach automatically when the module is pulled from the chassis.
2. Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed power supply with another SP400-1R power supply module (p/n
PWS-0064). Carefully insert the new power supply into the open bay and push it
completely into the chassis until you hear a clicking sound, meaning it has been
fully inserted. Finish by reconnecting the AC power cord and depressing the power
button on the chassis front control panel to restart the system.

BIOS
7-1 Introduction
This chapter describes the Phoenix BIOS™ Setup utility for the PDSMP-8/PDSMP-i.
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.
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating BIOS to prevent
possible boot failure.
System BIOS
The BIOS is the Basic Input Output System used in all IBM® PC, XT™, AT®, and
PS/2® compatible computers. The Phoenix BIOS 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
backup 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 7-3, detailed descriptions are given for each parameter setting in the Setup utility.
Note: fan speed is controlled by the “Auto Fan Control” setting in BIOS. The recommended setting for the 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) is “3-pin (Server)” (see page 7-17).

Appendix C
Software Installation
After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure Intel's ICH7R
SATA RAID* before you install the Windows Operating System and other software
drivers.
If you do not wish to configure onboard SATA RAID functions, please go directly to
Section C-4 on page C-16 for Operating System & Other Software Installation.
C-1 Introduction to Serial ATA and Parallel ATA
To configure the SATA RAID functions, you must first use the Intel ICH7R SATA
RAID Utility program to configure the RAID Level that you desire before installing
the Windows XP/2000/2003 operating system and other software drivers. (The
necessary drivers are all included on the Supermicro CD that came packaged with
your motherboard.) Note that the current version of the ICH7R SATA RAID Utility
can only support Windows XP/2000/2003 Operating Systems.
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface that uses a single cable with a
minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between devices. It is
a serial link, which supports transfer rates up to 3Gbps. Because the serial cables
used in SATA are thinner than the traditional cables used in Parallel ATA (PATA),
SATA systems have better airflow and can be installed in smaller chassis than
Parallel ATA. In addition, the cables used in PATA are limited to a length of 40cm,
while Serial ATA cables can be up to one meter in length. Overall, SATA provides
better functionality than PATA.
Introduction to Intel ICH7R Serial RAID
Located in the South Bridge of the E7230 chipset, the I/O Controller Hub (ICH7R)
provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of the system. It supports a 2channel UltraATA/100 Bus Master IDE controller (PATA) and four Serial ATA (SATA)
ports. The ICH7R supports the following PATA and SATA device configurations:
Legacy mode and Native mode.
C-1
SUPERSERVER 5015P-8(R)/5015P-T(R) User's Manual
RAID Configurations
The following types of RAID configurations are supported:
RAID 0 (Data Striping): this writes data in parallel, interleaved ("striped") sections
of two hard drives. Data transfer rate is doubled over using a single disk.
RAID1 (Data Mirroring): an identical data image from one drive is copied to another
drive. The second drive must be the same size or larger than the first drive.
RAID 10 (Striping & Mirroring): RAID 0 and 1 schemes are combined (without parity
information) to get the benefits of both.
RAID 5: both data and parity information are striped and mirrored across three or
more hard drives.
Intel Matrix Storage
The Intel Matrix Storage, supported by the ICH7R, allows the user to create
RAID 0 and RAID1 set by using only two identical hard disk drives. The Intel
Matrix Storage Technology creates two partitions on each hard disk drive and
generate a virtual RAID0 and RAID1sets. It also allows you the change the HDD
partition size without any data.
Configuring BIOS settings for SATA RAID Functions (Native Mode)
1. Press the <Del> key during system bootup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If it is the first time powering on the system, we recommend you load the
Optimized Default Settings. If you have already done so, please skip to Step 3.
2. Use the arrow keys to select the "Exit" Settings. Once in the "Exit" settings,
Scroll down to select "Load Setup Defaults" and press the <Enter> key. Select

3. Use the arrow keys to select the "Main" section in BIOS.
4. Scroll down to "SATA Control Mode" and press the <Enter> key to select "Enhanced"
5. Scroll down to "SATA RAID Enabled" and press <Enter>. Then, select "Enabled."
6. Scroll down to "Exit". Select "Save and Exit" from the "Exit" menu. Press the
<Enter> key to save the changes and exit the BIOS.
7. Once you've exited the BIOS Utility, the system will re-boot.
8. During the system boot-up, press the <Ctrl> and <I> keys simultaneously to run
the Intel RAID Configuration Utility when prompted by the following message: Press
<Ctrl> <I> for Intel RAID Configuration Utility.
