Important information
In this chapter you will find essential information regarding safety when working
with the board. Please read the instructions carefully if you want to
install/remove a board.
V CAUTION!
Observe the safety notes in the Operating Manual of your system unit.
2.1
Safety instructions
V CAUTION!
●
The actions described in these instructions should only be performed
by authorized, qualified personnel. Equipment repairs should only be
performed by qualified staff. Any failure to observe the guidelines in
this manual, and any unauthorized openings and improper repairs
could expose the user to risks (electric shock, fire hazards) and could
also damage the equipment. Please note that any unauthorized
openings of the device will result in the invalidation of the warranty
and exclusion from all liability.
●
Transport the device only in the antistatic original packaging or in
packaging that protects it from knocks and jolts.
●
Only install extensions that have been released. If you install other
extensions, you may interfere with the requirements and rules
governing safety and electromagnetic compatibility of your system.
Information on which system extensions are suitable can be obtained
from the customer service center or your sales outlet.
●
The warranty becomes invalid if the device is damaged during the
installation or replacement of system extensions.
●
Components can become very hot during operation. To avoid burns,
make sure you do not touch components when adding or removing
system board extensions!
●
Transmisson cables to peripheral devices must be adequately
shielded.

Important information
●
For the LAN wiring, the requirements according to standards
EN 50173 and EN 50174-1/2 apply. The minimum requirement is the
use of a protected LAN line of category 5 for 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet,
and/or of category 5e for Gigabit Ethernet. The requirements of
specification ISO/IEC 11801 must be observed.
●
Never connect or disconnect data cables during a storm (lightning
hazard).
Batteries
V CAUTION!
●
Incorrect replacement of the battery may lead to a risk of explosion.
The batteries may only be replaced with identical batteries or with a
type recommended by the manufacturer.
●
Do not throw batteries into the trash can. They must be disposed of
in accordance with local regulations concerning special waste.
Notes about boards
●
During installation/uninstallation of a board, observe the specific instructions
described in the service manual for the server.
●
To ensure that the system and system board are completely disconnected
from the mains voltage, remove the plug from the mains outlet.
●
To prevent damage to boards and the components and conductors on them,
please take great care when you insert or remove them. Make sure that
extension boards are slotted in straight, without damaging components or
conductors on the system board, or any other components, for example EMI
spring contacts.
●
Be careful with the locking mechanisms (catches, centering pins etc.) when
you replace boards.
●
Never use sharp objects (e.g. screw drivers) for leverage.
Modules with Electrostatic-Sensitive Devices
Modules with electrostatic-sensitive devices are identified by the following
sticker:

Important information
Figure 1: ESD label
When you handle components fitted with ESDs, you must always observe the
following points:
●
Switch off the system and remove the power plugs from the power outlets
before installing or removing components with ESDs.
●
You must always discharge static build-up (e.g. by touching a grounded
object) before working with such components.
●
Any devices or tools that are used must be free of electrostatic charge.
●
Wear a suitable grounding cable that connects you to the external chassis
of the system unit.
●
Always hold components with ESDs at the edges or at the points marked
green (touch points).
●
Do not touch any connectors or conduction paths on an ESD.
●
Place all the components on a pad which is free of electrostatic charge.
I For a detailed description of how to handle ESD components, see the
relevant European or international standards (EN 61340-5-1,
ANSI/ESD S20.20).

3.2.5.2
Installation
The LSliBBU01/LSliBBU07 supports remote connection to the Modular RAID
Controller "RAID 5/6 SAS based on LSI MegaRAID".
The LSliBBU01/LSliBBU07 is not installed directly on the RAID controller.
Instead, use one of the supplied cables to connect the LSliBBU01/LSliBBU07
to the RAID controller. The battery backup unit must be mounted inside the
chassis.
I Because server chassis vary, there is no standard mounting option that
is compatible with all the different system configurations. Refer to your
server’s Options Guide or Upgrade and Maintenance Manual for
mounting details.
Therefore, the LSliBBU01/LSliBBU07 battery kit contains only the
battery and a set of cables, allowing you to customize the location of the
remote battery to provide the most flexibility within different
environments.

4.4.5.1
Features
Using the LSI MegaRAID® CacheVault™ Technology offers better protection
for controller cache with our eco-friendly, low-maintenance 6Gb/s LSI
MegaRAID based controllers featuring CacheVault Technology.
This technology offloads data stored in the LSI MegaRAID based controller
cache to the NAND flash in the event of a power failure or other system
occurrence where the contents of controller cache are most at risk.
In addition, CacheVault technology eliminates the need for lithium ion (Li-ion)
batteries, traditionally used to protect DRAM cache memory on PCI RAID
controllers.
CacheVault technology offers:
CacheVault technology transfers the contents of the DRAM cache to NAND
flash using power from the supercap module in the event of a power or server
failure. With a traditional battery backup unit, after a limited time without
restored power, the cached data is lost. However, CacheVault technology safely
stores the contents of DRAM on NAND flash for up to three years.
4.4.5.2
Installation
The FBU supports remote connection to the Modular RAID Controller "RAID Ctrl
SAS 6G 1GB (D3116)".
The FBU is not installed directly on the RAID controller. Instead, use one of the
supplied cables to connect the FBU to the TFM on the RAID controller. The
cache backup unit must be mounted inside the chassis.
I Because server chassis vary, there is no standard mounting option that
is compatible with all the different system configurations. Refer to your
server’s Options Guide or Upgrade and Maintenance Manual for
mounting details.
Therefore, the FBU kit contains only the cache unit and a set of cables,
allowing you to customize the location of the remote cache backup unit
to provide the most flexibility within different environments.
In newer chassis models Fujitsu offers mounting options using the
common holder technology. Using the common holder technology
facilitates mounting the FBU into the chassis.

Installing an optional TFM / FBU module
5.1.5.1
Features
Using the LSI MegaRAID® CacheVault™ Technology offers better protection
for controller cache with our eco-friendly, low-maintenance LSI MegaRAID
based controllers featuring CacheVault Technology.
This technology offloads data stored in the LSI MegaRAID based controller
cache to the NAND flash in the event of a power failure or other system
occurrence where the contents of controller cache are most at risk.
In addition, CacheVault technology eliminates the need for lithium ion (Li-ion)
batteries, traditionally used to protect DRAM cache memory on PCI RAID
controllers.
CacheVault technology offers:
CacheVault technology transfers the contents of the DRAM cache to NAND
flash using power from the supercap module in the event of a power or server
failure. With a traditional battery backup unit, after a limited time without
restored power, the cached data is lost. However, CacheVault technology safely
stores the contents of DRAM on NAND flash for up to three years.
5.1.5.2
Installation
The FBU supports remote connection to the Modular RAID Controller "PRAID
EP400i / EP420i".
The FBU is not installed directly on the RAID controller. Instead, use one of the
supplied cables to connect the FBU to the TFM on the RAID controller. The
cache backup unit must be mounted inside the chassis.
I Because server chassis vary, there is no standard mounting option that
is compatible with all the different system configurations. Refer to your
server’s Upgrade and Maintenance Manual for mounting details.
Therefore, the FBU kit contains only the cache unit and a set of cables,
allowing you to customize the location of the remote cache backup unit
to provide the most flexibility within different environments.
In newer chassis models Fujitsu offers mounting options using the
common holder technology. Using the common holder technology
facilitates mounting the FBU into the chassis.

Installing an optional FBU module
5.6.5.1
Features
Using the LSI MegaRAID® CacheVault™ Technology offers better protection
for controller cache with our eco-friendly, low-maintenance LSI MegaRAID
based controllers featuring CacheVault Technology.
This technology offloads data stored in the LSI MegaRAID based controller
cache to the NAND flash in the event of a power failure or other system
occurrence where the contents of controller cache are most at risk.
In addition, CacheVault technology eliminates the need for lithium ion (Li-ion)
batteries, traditionally used to protect DRAM cache memory on PCI RAID
controllers.
CacheVault technology offers:
CacheVault technology transfers the contents of the DRAM cache to NAND
flash using power from the supercap module in the event of a power or server
failure. With a traditional battery backup unit, after a limited time without
restored power, the cached data is lost. However, CacheVault technology safely
stores the contents of DRAM on NAND flash for up to three years.
5.6.5.2
Installation
The FBU supports remote connection to the RAID controller "PRAID EP440i".
The FBU is not installed directly on the RAID controller. Instead, use one of the
supplied cables to connect the FBU to the TFM on the RAID controller. The
cache backup unit must be mounted inside the chassis.
Because server chassis vary, there is no standard mounting option that is
compatible with all the different system configurations. Refer to your server’s
Upgrade and Maintenance Manual for mounting details. Therefore, the FBU kit
contains only the cache unit and a set of cables, allowing you to customize the
location of the remote cache backup unit to provide the most flexibility within
different environments. In newer chassis models Fujitsu offers mounting options
using the common holder technology. Using the common holder technology
facilitates mounting the FBU into the chassis.
When removing / connecting the FBU from / to the TFM, remove AC power from
your system.
