Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your AS4021M-T2R+/4021M82R+ 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 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ 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 AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+. 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
AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ 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).
- This product is not suitable for use with visual display work place devices according
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 SCSI/SATA 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. 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 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.

Determine where you want to place the AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ 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 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. Locate the latch on the top (side if tower) of
the chassis - depress where it says "push" then lift the latch 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 may 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. No jumper or BIOS settings
need to be made.
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/SATA
drives and 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 CDROM, 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.
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.
2-9
AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ User's Manual
4. 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 or SATA drives, please
refer to Chapter 6.
5. Check the airflow
Airflow is provided by three 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 cords from the power supply modules 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.

Overview
The control panel on the 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ has several LEDs and two
buttons. There are also two LEDs on each SATA/SCSI drive carrier. These LEDs
keep you constantly informed of the overall status of the system and the activity
and health of specific components.
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 power on/off button and a reset button.
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.
RESET: Use the reset button to reboot the system.

Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC745TQ-R800/SC745S2-R800 chassis has six LEDs that 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.
Power: Indicates power is being supplied to the system's power supply. This
LED should normally be on when the system is operating.
HDD: Indicates IDE channel activity. On the 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+, this
LED indicates SATA/SCSI drive activity when flashing.
1
NIC1: Indicates network activity on JLAN1 when flashing.
2
NIC2: Indicates network activity on JLAN2 when flashing.
Overheat/Fan Fail: When this LED flashes, it indicates a fan failure. When
on continuously 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 indicated condition exists.
3-2
Chapter 3: System Interface
Power Fail: Indicates a power supply module has failed. This should be
accompanied by an audible alarm. A backup power supply module will take the
load and keep the system running but the failed module will need to be replaced.
Refer to Chapter 6 for details on replacing the power supply. This LED should be
off when the system is operating normally.
3-4
Drive Carrier LEDs
SATA Drives (4021M-T2R+)
Green: Each Serial ATA drive carrier has a green LED. When
illuminated, this green LED (on the front of the SATA drive carrier) indicates
drive activity. A connection to the SATA 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.
Red: The red LED to indicate an SATA drive failure. If one of the SATA drives
fail, you should be notified by your system management software. Please refer to
Chapter 6 for instructions on replacing failed SATA drives.
SCSI Drives (4021M-82R+)
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.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from
harm and the SuperServer 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ 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
AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ 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.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
Keep the area around the SuperServer 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ clean and
free of clutter.
The SuperServer 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ weighs approximately 70 lbs (31.8
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 (if
installed) to lift the chassis; the handles should only be used to pull the
server out of the rack.
Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been
removed away from the system or on a table so that they won't accidentally
be stepped on.
While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties and
unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact with electrical circuits
or be pulled into a cooling fan.
Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent metal
conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come into
contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and secure
it to the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that all connections
have been made.
4-3
ESD Precautions
!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different electrical
charges coming into contact with each other. An electrical discharge is created to
neutralize this difference, which can damage electronic components and printed
circuit boards. The following measures are generally sufficient to neutralize this
difference before contact is made to protect your equipment from ESD:
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic
bags until ready for use.
Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic
bag.
Do not let components or PCBs come into contact with your clothing, which
may retain a charge even if you are wearing a wrist strap.
Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or contacts.
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
Put the 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.

This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to the
H8DME-2/H8DM8-2 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 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.

sor. Always connect the power cord last and always remove it before adding, removing or changing any hardware components.
Installing the CPU Backplates
Two CPU backplates (BKT-0011L) have been preinstalled to the serverboard to
prevent the CPU area of the serverboard from bending and to provide a base for
attaching the heatsink retention modules.
Installing the Processor (install to the CPU#1 socket first)
1. Begin by removing the cover plate
that protects the CPU. Lift the lever
on CPU socket #1 until it points straight
up. With the lever raised, lift open the
silver CPU retention plate.

2. Use your thumb and your index
finger to hold the CPU. Locate and
align pin 1 of the CPU socket with pin
1 of the CPU. Both are marked with
a triangle.
5-2
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
3. Align pin 1 of the CPU with pin 1
of the socket. Once aligned, carefully
place the CPU into the socket. Do not
drop the CPU on the socket, move the
CPU horizontally or vertically or rub the
CPU against the socket or against any
pins of the socket, which may damage
the CPU and/or the socket.
4. With the CPU inserted into the
socket, inspect the four corners of the
CPU to make sure that it is properly installed and flush with the socket. Then,
gently lower the silver CPU retention
plate into place.
5. Carefully press the CPU socket
lever down until it locks into its retention tab. For a dual-processor system,
repeat these steps to install another
CPU into the CPU#2 socket.
Note: if using a single processor, only
the CPU1 DIMM slots are addressable
for a maximum of 16 GB memory.

AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ User's Manual
Installing the Heatsink Retention Modules
Two heatsink retention modules (BKT-0012L) and four screws are included in the
retail box. Once installed, these are used to help attach the heatsinks to the CPUs.
To install, align the module with the standoffs of the preinstalled CPU backplate and
with the four feet on the module contacting the serverboard. Secure the retention
module to the backplate with two of the screws provided. See Figure 2-1. Repeat
for the second CPU socket.
Note: BKT-0012L is included for use with non-proprietary heatsinks only. When
installing proprietary heatsinks, only BKT-0011L (the CPU backplate) is needed.
The BKT-0012L retention module was designed to provide compatibility with clipand-cam type heatsinks from third parties.
Figure 2-1. CPU Heatsink Retention Module Installation
Installing the Heatsink
The use of active type heatsinks (except for 1U systems) are recommended. Connect the heatsink fans to the appropriate fan headers on the serverboard. To install
the heatsinks, please follow the installation instructions included with your heatsink
package (not included).

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 reroute them 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 diagram in this
chapter for connector locations.
DVD-ROM drive cable (IDE#1)
4021M-T2R+: SATA cables (SATA0 ~ SATA5)
4021M-T2R+: SATA Enclosure Management LED cable (SGPIO1)
4021M-82R+: SCSI cables (JA1, JA2)
Control Panel cable (JF1, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The H8DME-2/H8DM8-2 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 "ATX Power" connector to supply power to
the serverboard. See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for power
connector pin definitions.
In addition, your power supply must be connected to the 4-pin Secondary ATX
Power connection at J32 and the 8-pin processor power connector at JPW2.

AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ User's Manual
Connecting the Control Panel
JF1 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 JF1 wires have been bundled into single keyed ribbon cable to simplify their
connection. The red wire in the ribbon cable plugs into pin 1 of JF1. Connect
the other end of the cable 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 JF1.

Installing Memory
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules.
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).
1. Insert each memory module vertically into its slot, paying attention to the notch
along the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the module incorrectly (see
Figure 5-5). See support information below.
2. Gently press down on the memory module until it snaps into place.
Note: each processor has its own built-in memory controller, so the CPU2 DIMMs
cannot be addressed if only a single CPU is installed. 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB and
2 GB memory modules are supported. It is highly recommended that you remove
the power cord from the system before installing or changing DIMMs.
5-7
AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ User's Manual
Support
The H8DME-2/H8DM8-2 supports single or dual-channel, DDR2-667/533/400
registered ECC SDRAM.
Both interleaved and non-interleaved memory are supported, so you may populate
any number of DIMM slots (see note on previous page and charts on following
page). The CPU2 DIMM slots can only be accessed when two CPUs are installed
(however, the CPU2 DIMM slots are not required to be populated when two CPUs
are installed).
Populating two adjacent slots at a time with memory modules of the same size and
type will result in interleaved (128-bit) memory, which is faster than non-interleaved
(64-bit) memory. See charts on following page.
Optimizing memory performance
If two processors are installed, it is better to stagger pairs of DIMMs across both
sets of CPU DIMM slots, e.g. first populate CPU1 slots 1A and 1B, then CPU2 slots
1A, and 1B, then the next two CPU1 slots, etc. This balances the load over both
CPUs to optimize performance.
Maximum memory: 32 GB of registered ECC DDR2-667/533 or 64 GB of registered ECC DDR2-400. If only one CPU is installed, maximum supported memory
is halved.

Adding PCI Cards
1. PCI slots
The H8DME-2/H8DM8-2 has six PCI expansion slots, which includes two PCIExpress x8 slots, two 64-bit 133 MHz PCI-X slots and two 64-bit 100 MHz PCI-X
slots. On the H8DM8-2, one 100 MHz PCI-X slot supports Zero Channel RAID
(ZCR). The 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ can support low-profile cards in all six slots
of the serverboard.
2. PCI card installation
Before installing a PCI add-on card, make sure you install it into a slot that supports
the speed of the card (see step 1, above). After gaining access to the inside of the
server, determine which slot you wish to populate, then press down on the curved
section at the top of the blue tab for that slot. While pressing down, lift the tab to
unlock the shield. Insert the expansion card into the correct slot on the serverboard,
pushing down with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card. Lock the card
into place by pressing down on the tab. Follow this procedure when adding a card
to other slots.

choose between optional settings.
Jumpers create shorts between two
pins to change the function of the
Jumper
connector. Pin 1 is identified with
a square solder pad on the printed
circuit board. See the diagram at
right for an example of jumping pins
1 and 2. Refer to the serverboard
layout page for jumper locations.
Setting
Note: On two-pin jumpers, "Closed"
means the jumper is on and "Open"
means the jumper is off the pins.
CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS and will also clear any passwords. Instead of pins,
this jumper consists of contact pads to prevent accidentally clearing the contents
of CMOS.
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 for at least four seconds.
3) Remove the screwdriver (or shorting device).
4) Reconnect the power cord(s) and power on the system.
Notes:
Do not use the PW_ON connector to clear CMOS.
The onboard battery does not need to be removed when clearing CMOS, however
you must short JBT1 for at least four seconds.

5-11 Floppy, IDE, SCSI and SATA Drive Connections
Use the following information to connect the floppy and hard disk drive cables.
The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.
A red mark on a wire typically designates the location of pin 1.
A single floppy disk drive ribbon cable has 34 wires and two connectors to provide
for two floppy disk drives. The connector with twisted wires always connects to
drive A, and the connector that does not have twisted wires always connects to
drive B.
The 80-wire ATA133 IDE hard disk drive cable that came with your system has
two connectors to support two drives. This special cable should be used to take
advantage of the speed this new technology offers. The blue connector connects
to the onboard IDE connector interface and the other connector(s) to your hard
drive(s). Consult the documentation that came with your disk drive for details
on actual jumper locations and settings for the hard disk drive.

5-12 Enabling SATA RAID
Now that the hardware is set up, you must now install the operating system and the
SATA RAID drivers, if you wish to use RAID with your SATA drives. The installation
procedure differs depending on whether you wish to have the operating system
installed on a RAID array or on a separate non-RAID drive. See the instructions
below for details.
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface that employs a single cable with a
minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between devices. This
connection is a serial link that supports a SATA transfer rate from 150 MBps. The
serial cables used in SATA are thinner than the traditional cables used in Parallel
ATA (PATA) and can extend up to one meter in length, compared to only 40 cm for
PATA cables. Overall, SATA provides better functionality than PATA.
Installing the OS/SATA Driver
Before installing the OS (operating system) and SATA RAID driver, you must decide
if you wish to have the operating system installed as part of a bootable RAID array
or installed to a separate non-RAID hard drive. If on a separate drive, you may
install the driver either during or after the OS installation. If you wish to have the
OS on a SATA RAID array, you must follow the procedure below and install the
driver during the OS installation.
Building a Driver Diskette
You must first build a driver diskette from the Supermicro CD-ROM that was included
with the system. (You will have to create this disk on a computer that is already
running and with the OS installed.) Insert the CD into your CD-ROM drive and
start the system. A display as shown in Figure 2-5 will appear. Click on the icon
labeled "Build Driver Diskettes and Manuals" and follow the instructions to create
a floppy disk with the driver on it. Once it's been created, remove the floppy and
insert the installation CD for the Windows Operating System you wish to install into
the CD-ROM drive of the new system you are about to configure.
Enabling SATA RAID in the BIOS
Before installing the Windows Operating System, you must change some settings
in BIOS. Boot up the system and hit the <Del> key to enter the BIOS Setup Utlility.
After the Setup Utility loads,
1. Use the arrow keys to move to the Exit menu. Scroll down with the arrow keys
to the "Load Optimal Defaults setting and press <Enter>. Select "OK" to confirm,
then <Enter> to load the default settings.
5-28
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
2. Use the arrow keys to move to Advanced > Floppy/IDE/SATA Configuration >
nVidia RAID Setup and press the <Enter> key. Once in the submenu, enable the
"nVidia RAID Function" setting, which will cause the SATA0/1/2 Primary/Secondary
settings to appear. Enable the SATA devices and channels you will be using.
3. Hit the <Esc> key twice and scroll to the Exit menu. Select "Save Changes and
Exit" and hit <enter>, then hit <Enter> again to verify.
4. After exiting the BIOS Setup Utility, the system will reboot. When prompted
during the startup, press the <F10> key when prompted to run the nVidia RAID
Utility program.
Using the nVidia RAID Utility
The nVidia RAID Utility program is where you can define the drives you want to
include in the RAID array and the mode and type of RAID. Two main windows
are shown in the utility. The "Free Disks" window on the left will list all available
drives. Use the arrow keys to select and move drives to the window on the right,
which lists all drives that are to become part of the RAID array.
Once you have finished selecting the drives and type of RAID you wish to use for
your RAID array, press the <F7> key. You will be prompted to verify your choice; if
you want to continue with your choices, select "Yes". Note that selecting "Yes" will
clear all previous data from the drives you selected to be a part of the array. You
are then given the choice of making the RAID array bootable by pressing the the
<B> key. After you have finshed, press the <Ctrl> and <X> keys simultaneously.
Installing the OS and Drivers
With the Windows OS installation CD in the CD-ROM drive, restart the system.
When you see the prompt, hit the <F6> key to enter Windows setup. Eventually a
blue screen will appear with a message that begins "Windows could not determine
the type of one or more storage devices . . ." When you see the screen, hit the <S>
key to "Specify Additional Device", then insert the driver diskette you just created
into the floppy drive. Highlight "Manufuacturer Supplied Hardware Support Disk"
and hit the <Enter> key. Highlight the first "nVidia RAID" driver shown and press
the <Enter> key to install it. Soon a similar blue screen will appear again. Again hit
the <S> key, then highlight the second item, "nForce Storage Controller" and press
the <Enter> key, then <Enter> again to continue with the Windows setup.

5-13 Installing Additional Drivers
The CD that came bundled with the system contains software drivers, some of which
must be installed, such as the chipset driver. After inserting this CD into your CDROM drive, the display shown in Figure 5-7 should appear. (If this display does
not appear, click on the My Computer icon and then on the icon representing your
CD-ROM drive. Finally, double click on the S "Setup" icon.)
Figure 5-7. Driver/Tool Installation Display Screen
Click the icons showing a hand writing on paper to view the readme files for each
item. Click the computer icons to the right of these items to install each item (from
top to the bottom) one at a time. After installing each item, you should reboot
the system before moving on to the next item on the list. The bottom icon with
a CD on it allows you to view the entire contents of the CD.

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 fasteners and
the serverboard.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging. When unpacking the board,
make sure the person handling it is static protected.

Control Panel
The front control panel must be connected to the JF1 connector on the serverboard
to provide you with system status and alarm indications. A ribbon cable has bundled
these wires together to simplify this connection. Connect the cable from JF1 on the
serverboard (making sure the red wire plugs into pin 1) to the appropriate comnnector on the front control panel PCB (printed circuit board). Pull all excess cabling over
to the control panel side of the chassis. The LEDs on the control panel inform you
of system status - see Figure 6-2 for details. See Chapter 5 for details on JF1.

System Fans
Three 8-cm chassis 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). Each power supply module also has a cooling fan.
Fan Failure
Under normal operation, all three chassis fans, both exhaust fans and the power
supply fans run continuously. The chassis fans and the exhaust fans are hot-swappable and can be replaced without powering down the system.
Replacing Chassis 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). Locate the fan that has
stopped working.
2. Removing a hot-plug fan housing
Depress the locking tab on the failed fan: on a chassis fan, puch the tab on the side
of the housing inward, on the exhaust fan push down on the colored tab. With the
tab depressed, pull the unit straight out (see Figure 6-3). The wiring for these fans
has been designed to detach automatically.
3. Installing a new system fan
Replace the failed fan with an identical one (see page 1-1 for part numbers). Install
it in the same position and orientation as the one you removed; 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 should 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
SATA and SCSI Drives
A total of six SATA or eight SCSI drives may be housed in the SC745TQ-R800/
SC745S2-R800/ chassis. For SATA, the drive IDs are preconfigured as 0 through
5 in order from bottom to top (or from left to right if rackmounted). For SCSI, the
drive IDs are preconfigured as 0 through 3 (channel A) and 4 through 7 (channel
B) in order from bottom to top (or from left to right if rackmounted). A bezel covers
the drive area but does not need to be removed to access the drives; simply swing
open the bezel. If you wish to remove the bezel piece, push on the three tabs on
the inside of the left lip of the front chassis cover. Then slightly swing out the same
(left) side of the cover - about ½ inch only. Remove by pushing on the open side
of the cover to remove it from the chassis (do not try to swing or pull it straight out
after opening the left side).
!
Regardless of how many SATA/SCSI drives are installed, all
drive carriers must remain in the drive bays to promote proper
airflow.
1. Installing/removing hot-swap SATA/SCSI drives
The SATA/SCSI drive carriers are all easily accessible at the front of the chassis.
These drives are hot-swappable, meaning they can be removed and installed without powering down the system. To remove a carrier, first open the front bezel then
push the release button located beside the drive LEDs. Swing the handle fully out
and then use it to pull the unit straight out.
Note: Your operating system must have RAID support to enable the hot-swap
capability of the SATA/SCSI drives.
2. Mounting a SATA/SCSI drive in a drive carrier
The SATA/SCSI drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation and
removal from the chassis. These carriers also work to promote proper airflow for
the system. For this reason, even carriers without SATA/SCSI drives must remain
in the server. If you need to add a new SATA/SCSI drive, insert the drive 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 four screws (see
Figure 6-6).

Important! Use extreme caution when working around the SATA/
!
SCSI backplane. Do not touch the backplane with any metal
objects and make sure no ribbon cables touch the backplane or
obstruct the airflow holes.
3. SATA/SCSI backplane
The SATA/SCSI drives plug into a SATA/SCSI backplane. SCSI: Two data cables
(CBL-037L-U320 and CBL-0063L) need to be connected from the serverboard to
the appropriate connectors on the backplane to provide dual-channel operation for
eight SCSI drives. There are also two power connectors on the backplane - both
should be connected. SATA: Six data cables (CBL-061L) and two SATA LED
cables (CBL-0157L) need to be connected from the serverboard to the appropriate
connectors on the backplane to support SATA six drives. You cannot cascade the
SATA/SCSI backplane.

Installing Components in the 5.25" Drive Bays
1. Drive bay configuration
The 4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ 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
The AS4021M-T2R+/4021M-82R+ has a redundant 800 watt power supply consisting of two power modules. Each power supply module has an auto-switching
capability, which enables it to automatically sense and operate at 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 PWR
Fail LED will illuminate and remain on until the failed unit has been replaced. Replacement units can be ordered directly from Supermicro (see contact information
in the Preface). The hot-swap capability of the power supply modules allows you
to 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 unit. The
redundant feature will keep the system up and running while you replace the failed
hot-swap unit. Replace with the same model - (see Appendix C).
1. Removing the power supply
First unplug the power cord from the failed power supply unit. Then depress the
locking tab on the power supply unit and pull the unit straight out by the handle.
2. Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed module with another power supply module (must be the exact
same - refer to Appendix C for part number). Simply push the new power supply
unit into the power bay until you hear a click. Finish by plugging the AC power cord
back into the unit.

Introduction
This chapter describes the AMIBIOS™ Setup utility for the H8DME-2/H8DM8-2.
The AMI 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 our web site for any changes to BIOS that may not be reflected
in this manual.
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>, etc.) 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 that BIOS has default text messages built in.
We retain the option to include, omit, or change any of these text messages.) Settings printed in Bold are the default values.
A " " indicates a submenu. Highlighting such an item and pressing the <Enter>
key will open the list of settings within that submenu.
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.

BIOS Error Beep Codes
During the POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines, which are performed each time
the system is powered on, errors may occur.
Non-fatal errors are those which, in most cases, allow the system to continue the
boot-up process. The error messages normally appear on the screen.
Fatal errors are those which will not allow the system to continue the boot-up procedure. If a fatal error occurs, you should consult with your system manufacturer
for possible repairs.
These fatal errors are usually communicated through a series of audible beeps.
The numbers on the fatal error list, on the following page, correspond to the number
of beeps for the corresponding error. All errors listed, with the exception of Beep
Code 8, are fatal errors.
POST codes may be read on the debug LEDs located beside the LAN port on the
serverboard backplane. See the description of the Debug LEDs (LED1 and LED2)
in Chapter 5.
