Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 7045B-T 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 7045B-T 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 7045B-T. 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 7045B-T 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 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.).
2-3
SUPERSERVER 7045B-T User's Manual
2-4
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).

2-4
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.
Figure 2-2. Preparing to Install the Chassis Rails

SUPERSERVER 7045B-T User's Manual
Figure 2-3. Installing the Rails to the Chassis
Installing the Rack Rails
Determine where you want to place the SuperServer 7045B-T 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.
2-6
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 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 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 SATA drives
and SATA 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 SATA 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
SUPERSERVER 7045B-T User's Manual
4. Check the SATA disk drives
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one or
more drives already installed. If you need to install SATA 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.

Overview
The control panel on the 7045B-T has several LEDs and two buttons. There is
also an LED on each SATA 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 SC743TQ-650 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 SC743TQ-650, this LED indicates SATA/CD-ROM drive activity when flashing.
1
NIC1: Indicates network activity on LAN1 when flashing.
2
NIC2: Indicates network activity on LAN2 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 fan has failed. The LED will illumi-
nate and an alarm will sound to notify you of the situation. Both can be turned off
with the resset switch on the back of the power supply. Since the power supply
has redundant cooling fans, the backup fan will activate to cool the power supply.
However, if the backup fan fails the system will shut down as the power supply will
quickly oveheat. For this reason, it is recommended that you replace the power
supply soon after the primary fan fails.
3-4
SATA Drive Carrier LEDs
Each Serial ATA drive carrier has two LEDs.
Green: When illuminated, the 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.
Red: The red LED indicates two states. When blinking, it indicates the drive
is rebuilding. When solid, it indicates a drive failure. If a SATA drive fails, you
should be notified by your system management software. Please refer to Chapter
6 for instructions on replacing failed SATA drives.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from
harm and the SuperServer 7045B-T 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
SUPERSERVER 7045B-T 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 7045B-T clean and free of clutter.
The 7045B-T weighs approximately 64 lbs (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 (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.

Advanced Serverboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to
the X7DBE 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.

Processor and Heatsink Installation
When handling the processor, avoid placing direct pressure on the label
!
area of the fan. Also, do not place the serverboard on a conductive
surface, which can damage the BIOS battery and prevent the system
from booting up.
IMPORTANT! Always connect the power cord last and remove it first before adding, removing or changing any hardware components. Make sure that you install
the processor into the CPU socket before you install the heatsink and fan. The
X7DBE can support either one or two dual-core Xeon processors 5300/5100/5000
series. If installing one processor only, install it into CPU socket #1.
Notes:
1. Intel's boxed Xeon CPU package contains a CPU fan and heatsink assembly. If
you buy a CPU separately, make sure that you use only Intel-certified multi-directional heatsinks and fans.
2. When purchasing a Xeon 5300/5100/5000 series processor or when receiving a
serverboard with one pre-installed, make sure that the CPU plastic cap is in place
and none of the CPU pins are bent; otherwise, contact the retailer immediately.
3. Check the Supermicro web site for details on board revisions needed to support
5300/5100 series CPUs.
Installing the Processor
1. A black PnP cap is attached to the
load plate to protect the CPU socket.
Press the load lever down and away
from the retention clasp to release the
load plate from its locked position.

Installing the Heatsink
1. Do not apply any thermal grease
to the heatsink or the CPU die; the
CEK Passive Heatsink
required amount has already been
applied.
2. Place the heatsink on top of the CPU
so that the four mounting holes are
aligned with those on the (preinstalled)
heatsink retention mechanism.
3. Screw in two diagonal screws (i.e.
the #1 and the #2 screws) until just
snug. Do not fully tighten the screws
or you may damage the CPU.)
4. Add the two remaining screws then
finish the installation by fully tightening
all four screws.
Removing the Heatsink
Warning!
!
We do not recommend that the CPU or the heatsink be
removed. However, if you do need to uninstall the heatsink, please
follow the instructions below to prevent damage to the CPU or the
CPU socket.
1. Unscrew and remove the heatsink screws from the motherboard in the sequence as
show in the picture on the right.
2. Hold the heatsink as show in the picture on the right and gently wriggle the heatsink
to loosen it from the CPU. (Do not use excessive force when wriggling the heatsink!!)
3. Once the CPU is loosened, remove the heatsink from the CPU socket.
4. Clean the surface of the CPU and the heatsink to get rid of the old thermal grease.
Reapply the proper amount of thermal grease on the surface before you re-install the
CPU and the heatsink.

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.
Floppy Drive cable (J22)
Control Panel cable (JF1, see next page)
Serial ATA cables (SATA0 - SATA5)
Serial Enclosure Management LED cables (SGPIO1, SGPIO2)
Connecting Power Cables
The X7DBE 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 JPW1 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 Auxiliary ATX Power
connection at JPW2 and the 8-pin Processor Power connector at JPW3.
5-5
SUPERSERVER 7045B-T User's Manual
Connecting the Control Panel
JF1 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See Figure
5-1 for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons and LED indicators. 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 DIMMs to prevent any possible damage. Also note that the memory is interleaved
to improve performance (see step 1).
DIMM Installation (See Figure 5-5)
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory slots, starting with DIMM
#1A and DIMM#2A. The memory scheme is interleaved so you must install two
modules at a time. See the table on the following page.
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).

SUPERSERVER 7045B-T User's Manual
Memory Support
The X7DBE supports up to 32 GB of ECC FBD (Fully Buffered DIMM) DDR2-667 or
ECC FBD DDR2-533 SDRAM. The memory is an interleaved configuration, which
requires modules of the same size and speed to be installed in pairs. You should
not mix DIMMs of different sizes and speeds. See Figure 5-3 for installing and
removing memory modules.
Note: Due to OS limitations, some operating systems may not show more than 4
GB of memory.

Adding PCI Cards
1. PCI Expansion Slots
The X7DBE has six PCI expansion slots, which includes two x8 PCI-Express slots,
one x4 PCI-Express slot, two PCI-X 133 MHz slots and one PCI-X 100 MHz slot.
The SC743TQ-650 chassis can accommodate up to six standard size PCI expansion cards. PCI cards are installed directly to the serverboard (riser cards are not
needed).
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). Begin by removing the screw from the
PCI slot shield that corresponds to the slot you wish to populate. Insert the expansion card into the correct slot on the serverboard, pushing down with your thumbs
evenly on both sides of the card. Finish by securing the card to the chassis with
the same screw you removed from the PCI slot shield. Follow this procedure when
adding a card to other slots.

This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform simple
maintenance on the SC743TQ-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 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.

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 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.

SATA Drives
A total of six SATA drives may be housed in the SC743TQ-650 chassis. The drive
IDs are preconfigured as 0 through 5 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 hard drives are installed, all SATA
drive carriers must remain in the drive bays to promote proper
airflow.
1. Installing/removing hot-swap SATA drives
The six SATA 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 drives.
2. Mounting a SATA drive in a drive carrier
The SATA 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 drives must remain in the server. If
you need to add a new 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).

Installing Components in the 5.25" Drive Bays
1. Drive bay configuration
The 7045B-T 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

Power Supply
The SuperServer 7045B-T 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 7045B-T, the server must
be powered down before removing and/or replacing the power supply for whatever
reason.
Replacing the Power Supply
1. Removing the power supply
First power down the server. Then, unplug the power cord from the power supply
module. Remove the screws that secure the module to the chassis then pull it
completely out.
2. Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed unit with another unit having the exact same part number (PWS0056). Gently but firmly push the new unit all the way into the open bay. Secure it
to the chassis using the screws you previously removed. Finish by replacing the
chassis left/top cover and then plugging the power cord back into the new module
you just added.

Introduction
This chapter describes the Phoenix BIOS™ Setup utility for the X7DBE. The
Phoenix ROM BIOS is stored in a flash chip and can be easily upgraded using a
floppy disk-based program.
Note: Due to periodic changes to the BIOS, some settings may have been added or
deleted and might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer to the Manual
Download area of the Supermicro web site <http://www.supermicro.com> for any
changes to the BIOS that may not be reflected in this manual.
System BIOS
The BIOS is the Basic Input Output System used in all IBM® PC, XT™, AT®, and
PS/2® compatible computers. The Phoenix BIOS flash chip stores the system
parameters, types of disk drives, video displays, etc. in the CMOS. The CMOS
memory requires very little electrical power. When the computer is turned off, a
backup battery provides power to the BIOS flash chip, enabling it to retain system
parameters. Each time the computer is powered on the computer is configured
with the values stored in the BIOS ROM by the system BIOS, which gains control
at boot up.
How To Change the Configuration Data
The CMOS information that determines the system parameters may be changed by
entering the BIOS Setup utility. This Setup utility can be accessed by pressing the
<Delete> key at the appropriate time during system boot. (See below.)
Starting the Setup Utility
Normally, the only visible POST (Power On Self Test) routine is the memory test. As
the memory is being tested, press the <Delete> key to enter the main menu of the
BIOS Setup utility. From the main menu, you can access the other setup screens,
such as the Security and Power menus. Beginning with Section 7-3, detailed descriptions are given for each parameter setting in the Setup utility.
!
Warning: Do not shut down or reset the system while updating
BIOS to prevent possible boot failure.

System CMOS checksum bad - Default configuration used
System CMOS has been corrupted or modified incorrectly, perhaps by an application
program that changes data stored in CMOS. The BIOS installed Default Setup Values.
If you do not want these values, enter Setup and enter your own values. If the error
persists, check the system battery or contact your dealer.

Previous POST did not complete successfully. POST loads default values and offers
to run Setup. If the failure was caused by incorrect values and they are not corrected,
the next boot will likely fail. On systems with control of wait states, improper Setup
settings can also terminate POST and cause this error on the next boot. Run Setup
and verify that the waitstate configuration is correct. This error is cleared the next
time the system is booted.

If the BIOS detects error 2C, 2E, or 30 (base 512K RAM error), it displays an additional
word-bitmap (xxxx) indicating the address line or bits that failed. For example, “2C
0002” means address line 1 (bit one set) has failed. “2E 1020" means data bits 12
and 5 (bits 12 and 5 set) have failed in the lower 16 bits. The BIOS also sends the
bitmap to the port-80 LED display. It first displays the checkpoint code, followed by
a delay, the high-order byte, another delay, and then the loworder byte of the error.
It repeats this sequence continuously.

Appendix C: Software Installation
Appendix C
Software Installation
After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure Intel's ESB2
SATA RAID* before you install the Windows Operating System and other software
drivers.
Important Notes to the User:
If you do not wish to configure onboard SATA RAID functions, you may proceed
to Section C-3.
This chapter describes RAID Configuration Instructions for the Intel ESB2 RAID
Controller designed for the Windows OS.
C-1 Introduction to Serial ATA and Parallel ATA
To configure the SATA RAID functions, you must first use the Intel ESB2 SATA
RAID Utility program to configure the RAID Level that you desire before installing
the Windows XP/2000/2003 operating system and other software drivers. (The
necessary drivers are all included on the Supermicro CD that came packaged with
your motherboard.) Note that the current version of the ESB2 SATA RAID Utility
can only support Windows XP/2000/2003 Operating Systems.
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface that uses a single cable with a
minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between devices. It is
a serial link, which supports transfer rates up to 3Gbps. Because the serial cables
used in SATA are thinner than the traditional cables used in Parallel ATA (PATA),
SATA systems have better airflow and can be installed in smaller chassis than
Parallel ATA. In addition, the cables used in PATA are limited to a length of 40cm,
while Serial ATA cables can be up to one meter in length. Overall, SATA provides
better functionality than PATA.
Introduction to Intel ESB2 Serial RAID
Located in the South Bridge of the Blackford Mukilteo chipset, the I/O Controller
Hub (ESB2) provides the I/O subsystem with access to the rest of the system. It
supports an 1-channel UltraATA/100 Bus Master IDE controller (PATA) and six Serial ATA (SATA) ports. The ESB2 supports the following PATA and SATA device
configurations: Legacy mode and Native mode.
C-1
SUPERSERVER 7045B-T User's Manual
RAID Configurations
The following types of RAID configurations are supported:
RAID 0 (Data Striping): this writes data in parallel, interleaved ("striped") sections
of two hard drives. Data transfer rate is doubled over using a single disk.
RAID1 (Data Mirroring): an identical data image from one drive is copied to another
drive. The second drive must be the same size or larger than the first drive.
RAID 10 (Striping & Mirroring): RAID 0 and 1 schemes are combined (without parity
information) to get the benefits of both.
RAID 5: both data and parity information are striped and mirrored across three or
more hard drives.
Intel Matrix Storage
The Intel Matrix Storage, supported by the ESB2, allows the user to create RAID
0, RAID 1, RAID 10 and RAID 5 sets by using only six identical hard disk drives.
The Intel Matrix Storage Technology creates two partitions on each hard disk
drive and generate a virtual RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 10 and RAID 5 sets. It also
allows you the change the HDD partition size without any data.
Configuring BIOS settings for SATA RAID Functions (Native Mode)
1. Press the <Del> key during system bootup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If it is the first time powering on the system, we recommend you load the
