Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer
7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 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. The 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/
7044H-82 may be employed either as a tower or mounted in a rack as a 4U
rackmount chassis. If using it as a tower unit, please read the Server
Precautions in the next section and then skip ahead to Section 2-5.
2-2
Unpacking the System
You should inspect the box the system 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 SuperServer 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/
7044H-82. 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 system was shipped in may include two sets of rail assemblies, two
rail mounting brackets and mounting screws needed for installing the system into
a rack (optional kit). 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 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 User's Manual
Choosing a Setup Location
- Leave enough clearance in front of the system to enable you to open
the front door completely (~25 inches).
- Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the system
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).
!
Warnings and Precautions!
!
Rack Precautions
- Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully
extended to the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
- In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
- In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
- Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component
from the rack.
- You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or
more simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
Server Precautions
- Review the electrical and general safety precautions in Chapter 4.
- Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you
install the rails.
- Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack
first, and then work up.
- Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the
server from power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your
system operating in case of a power failure.
- Allow the hot plug SCSI drives and power supply units to cool before
touching them.
- Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on
the servers closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
2-2
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Rack Mounting Considerations
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating
temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient
temperature of the room. Therefore, consideration should be given to
installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the manufacturer’s
maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow
required for safe operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does
not arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power
supply circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack itself
should be grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of
power strips, etc.).

Installing the System into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the system into a rack unit. Rack
installation requires the use of the optional rackmount kit [CSE-PT26(B)]. If the
system has already been mounted into a rack or if you are using it as a tower,
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 server into a rack with the rack
rails provided in the rackmount kit. You should also refer to the installation
instructions that came with the rack unit you are using.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
The optional rackmount kit (CSE-PT26 or CSE-PT26B - black) includes two rack
rail assemblies. Each of these assemblies consist of three sections: an inner
fixed chassis rail that secures to the chassis, an outer rack rail that secures
directly to the rack itself and two rail brackets, which also attack to the rack (see
Figure 2-1.) The inner and outer rails must be detached from each other to
install.
To remove the inner chassis rail, 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. Depress the locking tab to pull the
inner rail completely out. Do this for both assemblies (one for each side).

Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Chassis Rails
You will need to remove the top cover and the feet to add rack rails to the
chassis. First, remove the top and right covers (top and left covers when standing
as a tower chassis) by first removing the screws that secure them to the chassis.
Depress the button on the top (side if tower) of the chassis to release the cover
and then pull the cover off. Then unscrew the four feet and remove them from the
chassis (see Figure 2-2).
You can now attach rack rails to the top and bottom (now the sides) of the
chassis. First add the rack handles. Then position the inner chassis rail
sections you just removed along the side of the chassis 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 2-3). Repeat this procedure for
the other rail on the other side of the chassis. You will also need to attach the
rail brackets when installing into a telco rack.
Locking Tabs: As mentioned, the 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.

Installing the Rack Rails
Determine where you want to place the SuperServer 7044H-82R/7044HX8R/7044H-82 in the rack. (See Rack and Server Precautions in Section 23.) 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 assembly to the other side of the rack, making sure
both are at the exact same height and with the rail guides facing inward.

Chapter 2: Server Installation
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. You should have two brackets in
the rack mount kit. Install these first keeping in mind that they are left/right
specific (marked with "L" and "R"). Then, line 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).
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 (see Figure 2-4).

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After setting up the the system, you will need to open the unit to make sure the
serverboard is properly installed and all the connections have been made.
1. Accessing the inside of the system (see Figure 2-5)
[If rack mounted, 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").] There are two screws
that secure the cover to the chassis - remove these first. Depress the
button on the top (side if tower) of the chassis to release the cover.
You can then lift the 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 should have its own heatsink attached.
See Chapter 5 for instructions on processor installation.
3. CPU clock ratio setting
The CPU speed should be automatically detected. If not, you will need to
set the correct speed with the BIOS Setup utility. See the Frequency
Ratio setting in BIOS (Chapter 7) to set the processor speed.
4. Check the system memory
Your server 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.
5. 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.
6. 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
drives and SCA backplane have been properly installed and all connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the drive bays
All drives can be accessed from the front of the server. For servicing
the CD-ROM, IDE hard drives and floppy drives, you will need to remove
the top/left chassis cover. The SCSI disk drives can be installed and
removed from the front of the chassis without removing any chassis
covers.
2. Installing components into the 5.25" drive bays
To install components into the 5.25" drive bays, you must first remove the
top/left chassis cover as described in the previous section. Refer to
Chapter 6 for details.
2-9
SUPERSERVER 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 User's Manual
3. Installing CD-ROM and floppy disk drives
Refer to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a CD-ROM and/or floppy disk
drive to the system.
4. Check the SCSI disk drives
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one
or more drives already installed. If you need to install SCSI drives, please
refer to Chapter 6.
5. Check the airflow
Airflow is provided by four hot-swap 8-cm chassis fans working in conjunction
with an air shroud. Two 8-cm exhaust fans are also mounted at the rear
of the chassis. The system component layout was carefully designed to
promote sufficient airflow through the chassis. Also 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. Keep this in mind when you reroute
them after working on the system.
6. 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). Finally, depress the power on
button on the front of the chassis.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself
from harm and the SuperServer 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 from damage:
z 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.
z Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
z 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 (not necessary
for SCSI 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.
z 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.
z
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.
z
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
SUPERSERVER 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 User's Manual
z The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and must
be plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
z 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.
z CD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with a CDROM drive. To prevent direct exposure to the laser beam and hazardous
radiation exposure, do not open the enclosure or use the unit in any
unconventional way.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
z Keep the area around the SuperServer 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H82 clean and free of clutter.
z
The SuperServer 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 weighs
approximately 70/64 lbs. (31.8/29.1 kg.) when fully loaded. When
lifting the system, two people at either end should lift slowly with their
feet spread out to distribute the weight. Always keep your back
straight and lift with your legs. Don't use the handles to lift the
chassis; the handles should only be used to pull the server out of the
rack.
z 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.
z 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.
z 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
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
into contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is
present.
z 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:
z Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
z Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic
bags until ready for use.
z Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic
bag.
z 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.
z Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or contacts.
z When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
z Put the serverboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when
not in use.
z 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.
z Ultra320 LVD SCSI cables (JA1)
z CD-ROM cable (JIDE2)
z Floppy drive cable (JFFD1)
z Control Panel cable (JF1, see next page)
z USB cable (JUSB2)
Connecting Power Cables
The X6DH8-G2/X6DH8-XG2 has a 24-pin primary power supply connector
designated JPW1 for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the
appropriate connector from the power supply to the JPW1 connector to
supply power to the serverboard. The 12V 8-pin processor power connector at JPW3 and the 12V 4-pin power connector at JPW2 must also both be
connected to your power supply. See the Connector Definitions section in
this chapter for power connector pin definitions.

Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
Connecting the Control Panel
JF1 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See
Figure 5-2 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 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 for details and pin

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. Also note that the memory is
interleaved to improve performance (see step 1).
DIMM Installation (See Figures 5-4 and 5-5)
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory slots, starting with
Bank 1. The memory scheme is interleaved so you must install two
modules at a time, beginning with DIMM A1 and DIMM B1 (Bank1), and
so on.
2. Insert each DIMM module vertically 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).

CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS (which will also clear any passwords). Instead of pins, this jumper consists of contact pads to prevent accidentally
clearing the contents of CMOS.
On the X6DH8-G2/X6DH8-XG2, the CMOS Clear contact pads are located
between the floppy drive header and the South Bridge chip (see Figure 56.
To clear CMOS,
1) First power down the system and unplug the power cord(s)
2) With the power disconnected, short the CMOS pads with a metal object
such as a small screwdriver
3) Remove the screwdriver (or shorting device)
4) Reconnect the power cord(s) and power on the system.
Note: Do not use the PW_ON connector to clear CMOS.

Advanced Chassis Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform
simple maintenance on the SC743S1-R760/SC743S1-650 chassis. Following the component installation steps in the order given will eliminate most
common problems. If some steps are unnecessary, skip ahead to the step
that follows. Refer to Chapter 2 for instructions on installing the system as
a 4U rackmount.
Tools Required
The only tool you will need is a Philips screwdriver.

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 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

System Fans
Four 8-cm chassis cooling fans (located in the center of the chassis) provide cooling airflow while two 8-cm exhaust fans expel hot air from the
chassis. The chassis is also fitted with an air shroud to concentrate the
flow of cooling air over the areas of highest generated heat. The fans
should all be connected to headers on the serverboard (see Chapter 5).
The power supply module also has a cooling fan.
Fan Failure
Under normal operation, all four chassis fans, both exhaust fans and the
power supply fan run continuously. The four chassis fans and the two
exhaust fans are hot-swappable and can be replaced without powering
down the system.
Replacing Chassis Cooling Fans
1.
Identifying the failed fan
To locate and replace a failed chassis fan, begin by removing the top/left
chassis cover (see Chapter 2 for details on removing the cover).
2.
Removing a hot-plug fan housing
Depress the locking tab on a chassis cooling fan and pull the unit straight
out by the handle (see Figure 6-3). The fan wiring for these fans has been
designed to detach automatically.
3.
Installing a new system fan
Replace the failed fan with an identical one (Supermicro p/n FAN-0072).
Install it in (and then reassemble) the fan housing, then plug the housing
back into its slot; it should click into place when fully inserted. Check
that the fan is working then replace the top/left side chassis panel.
Removing the air shroud
Under most circumstances you will not need to remove the air shroud to
perform any service on the system. However, if you wish to temporarily
remove it (the air shroud sould always be in place when the system is
operating), please follow this procedure.
Begin by depressing the tabs at the front and rear of the shroud to
unlock it, then lift it up and out of the chassis (see Figure 6-4). To
reinstall, simply position the air shroud in its proper place and push it in
until you hear it click.

Drive Bay Installation
SCSI Drives
Eight SCSI drives may be housed in the SC743S1-R760/SC743S1-650 chassis. The SCSI drive IDs are preconfigured as 0 through 7 in order from
bottom to top (tower configuration) or from left to right (if rackmounted).
Note: You must use standard 1" high, 80-pin SCA SCSI drives in the
SuperServer 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82.
!
Use extreme 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.
1.
Removing a hot-plug SCSI drive carrier
The eight SCSI drive carriers are all easily accessible at the front of the
chassis. The SCSI drives are hot-pluggable, meaning they can be removed
and installed without powering down the system. To remove a carrier, first
push the release button located beside the drive LEDs. Swing the handle
fully out and use it to pull the unit straight out from the chassis(see
Figure 6-5).
Note: Your operating system must have RAID support to enable the hotplug capability of the SCSI drives.
2.
Mounting a SCSI drive in a drive carrier
The SCSI drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation
and removal from the chassis. These carriers also help promote proper
airflow for the SCSI drive bays. For this reason, even empty carriers
without SCSI drives installed must remain in the chassis. To add a new
SCSI drive, install a drive into the carrier with the printed circuit board
side toward the carrier so that the mounting holes align with those in the
carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with two screws on each side,
as shown in Figure 6-6.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
Figure 6-5. Removing a SCSI Drive Carrier
Figure 6-6. Mounting a SCSI Drive in a Carrier
!
Important: Regardless of how many SCSI hard drives
are installed, all SCSI drive carriers must remain in the
drive bays to promote proper airflow.
3.
SCSI backplane
All eight SCSI drives plug into a single SCSI backplane, which provides
Ultra320 single-channel operation for all eight SCSI drives. A ribbon cable
from JA1 on the serverboard should be connected to the IN connector on
the SCSI backplane. There are also two power connectors on the
backplane that must be connected. See Figure 6-7 for the locations of
backplane connectors - the reverse side of the backplane has five
connectors that the SCSI drives plug into when inserted with a SCSI drive
carrier or mobile rack.

1.
Drive bay configuration
The 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 has two 5.25" drive bays. Components such as an extra floppy drive, IDE hard drives or CD-ROM drives
can be installed into these 5.25" drive bays.
2.
Mounting components in the drive bays
First power down the system and then remove the top/left chassis cover
to access the drive components. With the cover off, remove the two or
four screws that secure the drive carrier to the chassis (one side only)
then push the entire empty drive carrier out from the back.
Adding a CD-ROM drive: remove the guide plates (one on each side) from
the empty drive carrier and screw them into both sides of the CD-ROM
drive using the holes provided. Then slide the CD-ROM into the bay and
secure it to the chassis with the drive carrier screws you first removed.
Attach the power and data cables to the drive. Replace the top/left
chassis cover before restoring power to the system.
Adding an IDE or floppy drive: to add one of these drives, install it into
one of the removed empty drive carriers with the printed circuit board
side toward the carrier so that the drive's mounting holes align with those
in the carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with four screws then slide
the assembly into the bay and secure it to the chassis with the drive
carrier screws you first removed. Attach the power and data cables to
the drive. Replace the top/left chassis cover before restoring power to
the system.
Note: A red wire typically designates the location of pin 1. You should
keep the drive carriers inserted in any unused drive bays to reduce EMI
and noise and to facilitate the airflow inside the chassis.

Power Supply: 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R
The 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R has a triple redundant 760 watt redundant
cooling power supply that consists of three 380W power modules. All
three modules are active and share the load of the system (up to 760W
max.). If any of the three modules fail, the other two will continue to
provide up to 760W of power and allow the system to continue running
without interruption.
The power supply modules have an auto-switching capability that enable
them to automatically sense and operate with 100 or 240 volt inputs. The
power modules are PFC (Power Factor Correction) compliant.
Power Supply Failure
If a power supply module fails, an LED in the control panel as well as
one on the back of the failed power module will illuminate to notify you of
a power failure.
Replacing the Power Supply
1.
Accessing the power supply
You do not need to power down the system to replace a power module
on the 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R. Power supply modules can be removed
from the back of the chassis; access to the inside is unnecessary.
2.
Removing the power supply
First, unplug the power cord from the failed power supply module. Then
press the locking tab on the module and pull the unit completely out.
3.
Installing a new power supply module
Replace the failed unit with another unit having the exact same part
number (PWS-0050M). Gently but firmly push the new unit all the way
into the open bay. Secure it to the chassis using the locking tab. Finish
by replacing the chassis left/top cover and then plugging the power cord
back into the new module you just added.

Power Supply: 7044H-82
The SuperServer 7044H-82 has a single 650 watt power supply. This
power supply has an auto-switching capability, which enables it to automatically sense and operate at a 100V or 240V input voltage.
Power Supply Failure
If the power supply unit fails, the system will shut down and you will need
to replace the power supply unit. Replace with the same model - SP650-RP
(p/n PWS-0056), which can be ordered directly from Supermicro (see Contact Information in the Preface). As there is only one power supply unit in
the 7044H-82, the server must be powered down before removing and/or
replacing the power supply for whatever reason.

Introduction
This chapter describes the Phoenix BIOS™ Setup utility for the X6DH8-G2/
X6DH8-XG2. The Phoenix ROM BIOS is stored in a flash chip and can be
easily upgraded using a floppy disk-based program. Due to periodic changes
in the BIOS, some settings may have been added or deleted that might not
yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer to the Manual Download area
of the Supermicro web site (www.supermicro.com) for any such changes.
Starting the Setup Utility
To enter the BIOS Setup Utility, hit the <Delete> key while the system is
booting-up. (In most cases, the <Delete> key is used to invoke the BIOS setup
screen. There are a few cases when other keys are used, such as <F1>,
<F2>, and so on.)
Each main BIOS menu option is described in this manual. The Main BIOS
screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the options that can
be configured. “Grayed-out” options cannot be configured. The right frame
displays the key legend. Above the key legend is an area reserved for a
text message. When an option is selected in the left frame, it is highlighted
in white. Often a text message will accompany it. (Note: BIOS has default
text messages built in. Supermicro retains the option to include, omit, or
change any of these text messages.) Options printed in Bold are the
default settings.
The BIOS setup/utility uses a key-based navigation system called hot keys.
Most of these hot keys (<F1>, <F10>, <Enter>, <ESC>, <Arrow> keys, etc.)
can be used at any time during the setup navigation process.
Note: fan speed is controlled by the "Fan Speed Control Modes" setting
in BIOS. The recommended setting for the 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H82 is "3-pin (Server)" Loading the BIOS default settings may change this
setting. Therefore, if you do load BIOS defaults, you should reenter BIOS
setup and change this setting back to "3-pin (Server)", then save and
exit (see page 7-18).

Software Installation
After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure the
Adaptec Embedded Serial ATA RAID Driver before you install the
Windows operating system. The necessary drivers are all included on
the Supermicro bootable CDs that came packaged with your motherboard.
(For Adaptec's SCSI Host RAID Utility, please refer to the CDs that came
with your motherboard.)
B-1 Adaptec Embedded SATA RAID Controller Driver
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface. It uses a single cable
with a minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between
devices. SATA is a serial link which supports transfer rates from 150
MBps. 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 can only extend to 40cm long, while SATA cables
can extend up to one meter. Overall, SATA provides better functionality than
PATA.
Configuring BIOS settings for the SATA RAID Functions
1. Press the Del key during system bootup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If it is the first time to power on the system, we recommend that
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" Menu. Once in the "Exit" Menu,
scroll down the menu to select the item "Load Optimized Default Settings"
and press the Enter key. Select OK to confirm the selection. Press the
Enter key to load the default settings to the BIOS.
3. Use the arrow keys to select the "Main" Menu in BIOS.
4. Scroll down to the item "SATA RAID Enable", select Enabled and
press Enter.

SUPERSERVER 7044H-82R/7044H-X8R/7044H-82 User's Manual
5. Tap the Esc key and scroll down to "Exit". Select "Save and Exit" from
the "Exit" menu. Press the Enter key to save the changes and exit the
BIOS.
6. Once you've exited the BIOS Utility, the system will re-boot.
7. During system startup, press the Ctrl and the A keys simultaneously
to run the Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility when prompted by the message: "Press <Ctrl><A> for Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility".
Adaptec Embedded SATA with HostRAID Controller
Driver
Adaptec's Embedded Serial ATA RAID with HostRAID controller adds
RAID functionality to the Serial ATA I/O controller by supporting RAID 0
(Striping) or RAID 1 (Mirroring) to enhance the industry's pioneer PCI-toe host controller products. RAID striping (RAID 0) can greatly improve
hard disk I/O performance because of its capability in striping data
across multiple drives. RAID mirroring (RAID 1) allows the data to be
simultaneously written to two drives, so critical data is always available
even if one hard disk fails.
Due to this built-in functionality, your Supermicro motherboard is specially
designed to keep pace with the increasing performance demands of
today's computer systems by improving disk I/O throughput and providing
data accessibility regardless of a single disk failure. By incorporating
Adaptec Embedded Serial ATA into the motherboard design, Supermicro
offers the user the benefits of SATA RAID without the high costs associated with RAID hardware.
Note: For Adaptec's RAID Driver Installation Instructions, please refer to
the Adaptec RAID Controller User's Guide: "Emb_SA_RAID_UG.pdf",
which is located in the CD that came with this motherboard. You can
also download a copy of Adaptec's User's Guide from our website at
www.supermicro.com.

Initializing Disk Drives
If an installed disk does not appear in the disk selection list for creating a
new array or if it appears grayed out, you may have to initialize it before
you can use it as part of an array. Drives attached to the controller must
be initialized before they can be used in an array.
Caution: Initializing a disk overwrites the partition table on the disk and
makes any data on the disk inaccessible. If the drive is used in an array,
you may not be able to use the array again.
Do not initialize a disk that is part of a boot array. To determine which
disks are associated with a particular array, please refer to Viewing
Array Properties.
To initialize drives:
1. Turn on your computer and press Ctrl+A when prompted to access
the ARC utility.
2. From the ARC menu, select Array Configuration Utility (ACU) (as
shown on the screen below).
3. Select Initialize Drives.
4. Use the up and down arrow keys to highlight the disk you wish to
initialize and press Insert (as shown on the following screen).

Rebuilding Arrays
Note 1: Rebuilding applies to Fault Tolerant arrays (RAID 1) only.
If an array build process (or initialization) is interrupted or critical with
one member missing, you must perform a rebuild to optimized its functionality. For a critical array rebuild operation, the optimal drive is the source
drive.
Note 2: If no spare array exists and a hard disk drive fails, you need to
create a spare before you can rebuild an array.
To Rebuild an array:
1. From the Main Menu, select Manage Arrays. From the list of arrays,
select the array you want to rebuild.
2. Press Ctrl+R to rebuild.
