Chapter 2

Server Installation

2-1 Overview

This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer 5013C-MT up and running. Following the steps in the order given should enable you to have the system operational within a minimal amount of time. This quick setup assumes that your 5013C-MT system has come to you with the processor and memory preinstalled. If your system is not already fully integrated with a motherboard, processor, system memory etc., please turn to the chapter or section noted in each step for details on installing specific components.

2-2 Unpacking the SuperServer 5013C-MT

You should inspect the box the SuperServer 5013C-MT was shipped in and note if it was damaged in any way. If the server itself shows damage, you should file a damage claim with the carrier who delivered it.

Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold the SuperServer

5013C-MT. 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. Read the Rack and Server Precautions in the next section.

2-3 Preparing for Setup

The box the SuperServer 5013C-MT was shipped in should include two sets of rail assemblies, six rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you will need to install the system into the rack. Follow the steps in the order given to complete the installation process in a minimal amount of time. Please read this section in its entirety before you begin the installation procedure outlined in the sections that follow.

2-1

S UPER S ERVER 5013C-MT User's Manual

Choosing a Setup Location

- Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open

the front door completely (~25 inches).

- Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack

to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.

- This product is for installation only in a Restricted Access Location

(dedicated equipment rooms, service closets, etc.).

!

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 a 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 power supply units and hot plug Serial ATA drive 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.).

2-4 Installing the 5013C-MT into a Rack

This section provides information on installing the SuperServer 5013C-MT into a rack unit. If the system has already been mounted into a rack, you can skip ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6. There are a variety of rack units on the market, which may mean the assembly procedure will differ slightly. The following is a guideline for installing the unit into a rack with the rack rails provided with the system. You should also refer to the installation instructions that came with the rack unit you are using.

Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails

You may have received rack rail hardware with the SuperServer 5013C-MT. (Two front inner rails should already be attached to the chassis.) This hardware consists of two rear inner rails that secure to the chassis, one on each side just behind the preinstalled front inner rails. Note that these two rails are left/right specific.

Installing the Rear Inner Rails

First, locate the right rear inner rail (the rail that will be used on the right side of the chassis when you face the front of the chassis). Align the two square holes on the rail against the hooks on the right side of the chassis. Securely attach the rail to the chassis with M4 flat head screws. Repeat these steps to install the left rear inner rail to the left side of the chassis (see Figure 2-1).

You will also need to attach the rail brackets when installing into a telco rack.

Locking Tabs: Both chassis rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions.

The first is to lock the server into place when installed and pushed fully into the rack, which is its normal position. Secondly, these tabs also lock the server in place when fully extended from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely out of the rack when you pull it out for servicing.

2-4

Chapter 2: Server Installation

Figure 2-1. Installing Rear Inner Chassis Rails

Installing the Rack Rails

Determine where you want to place the SuperServer 5013C-MT in the rack (see

Rack and Server Precautions in Section 2-3). Position the chassis rail guides 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 that both are at the exact same height and with the rail guides facing inward.

2-5

S UPER S ERVER 5013C-MT User's Manual

Installing the Server into the Rack

You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack unit. The next step is to install the server into the rack. Do this by lining up the rear of the chassis rails with the front of the rack rails.

Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on both sides (you may have to depress the locking tabs when inserting).

See Figure 2-2.

When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the locking tabs "click". Finish by inserting and tightening the thumbscrews that hold the front of the server to the rack.

Chapter 2: Server Installation

Installing the Server into a Telco Rack

If you are installing the SuperServer 5013C-MT into a Telco type rack, follow the directions given on the previous pages for rack installation. The only difference in the installation procedure will be the positioning of the rack brackets to the rack. They should be spaced apart just enough to accomodate the width of the telco rack.

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"). Next, depress the two buttons on the top of the chassis to release the top cover while pushing the cover away from you until it stops.

You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.

2. Check the CPU (processor)

You may have a processor already installed into the motherboard. The processor should have its own heatsink attached. See Chapter 5 for instructions on processor installation.

3. Check the system memory

Your 5013C-MT server system may have come with system memory already installed. Make sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots. For details on adding system memory, refer to Chapter 5.

4. Installing add-on cards

If desired, you can install an add-on card to the system. See Chapter 5 for details on installing a PCI add-on card.

5. Check all cable connections and airflow

Make sure all power and data cables are properly connected and not blocking the airflow. See Chapter 5 for details on cable connections.

Also, check the air seals for damage. The air seals are located under the blower fan and beneath the frame cross section that separates the drive bay area from the motherboard area of the chassis.

Note: Make sure that the air seals are properly installed.

2-6 Checking the Drive Bay Setup

Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the Serial

ATA drive and Serial ATA backplane have been properly installed and all essential connections have been made.

1. Accessing the drive bays

All drives can be accessed from the front of the server. For servicing the CD-ROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove the top chassis cover. The Serial ATA disk drive can be installed and removed from the front of the chassis without removing the top chassis cover.

2. Installing a 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.

3. Check the Serial ATA disk drives

Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one or more Serial ATA drives already installed. If you need to install a Serial

ATA drive, please refer to the appropriate section in Chapter 6.

4. Check the airflow

Airflow is provided by three 4-cm high performance fans. The system component layout was carefully designed to promote sufficient airflow through the small 1U rackmount space. 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 fan.

5. 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).

4-1 Electrical Safety Precautions

!

Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from harm and the SuperServer 5013C-MT 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 motherboard, memory modules and CD-ROM drive. When disconnecting power, you should first power down the system with the operating system first 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.

U s e o n l y o n e h a n d w h e n w o r k i n g w i t h p o w e r e d - o n e l e c t r i c a l 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 static electrical discharge as protection from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically designed as electrical insulators.

The power supply power cords must include a grounding plug and must be plugged into grounded electrical outlets.

4-1

S UPER S ERVER 5013C-MT User's Manual

Motherboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the onboard battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarites (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 CD-ROM 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 5013C-MT clean and free of clutter.

The SuperServer 5013C-MT weighs approximately 38 lbs (17.3 kg) when fully loaded. When lifting the system, two people at either end should lift slowly with their feet spread out to distribute the weight. Always keep your back straight and lift with your legs.

Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been removed away from the system or on a table so that they won't accidentally be stepped on.

While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties and unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact with electrical circuits or be pulled into a cooling fan.

Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent metal conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come into contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.

After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and secure it to the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that all connections have been made.

4-2

Chapter 4: System Safety

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 e l e c t r o n i c c o m p o n e n t s a n d p r i n t e d c i r c u i t b o a r d s . T h e f o l l o w i n g 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 motherboard 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 motherboard.

4-3

S UPER S ERVER 5013C-MT User's Manual

4-4 Operating Precautions

!

Care must be taken to assure that the chassis cover is in place when the

Advanced Motherboard Setup

This chapter covers the steps required to install the P4SCT+ motherboard into the SC813MT-300C chassis, connect the data and power cables and install addon cards. All motherboard jumpers and connections are also described. A layout and quick reference chart are included in this chapter for your reference.

Remember to completely close the chassis when you have finished working with the motherboard to better cool and protect the system.

5-1 Handling the P4SCT+ Motherboard

Electric-static discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very carefully (see previous chapter). To prevent the P4SCT+ motherboard 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 electric static discharge.

Precautions

• Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent Electric Static Discharge

(ESD).

• 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 motherboard, 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 motherboard.

5-1

S UPER S ERVER 5013C-MT User's Manual

Unpacking

The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid electrical static discharge. When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

5-2 Motherboard Installation

This section explains the first step of physically mounting the P4SCT+ into the

SC813MT-300C chassis. Following the steps in the order given will eliminate the most common problems encountered in such an installation. To remove the motherboard, follow the procedure in reverse order.

1.

Accessing the inside of the 5013C-MT (see Figure 2-5)

Two release buttons are located on the top cover of the chassis.

Depressing both of these buttons while pushing the cover away from you until it stops. You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server. (If already installed in a rack, you must first release the retention screws that secure the unit to the rack. Then grasp the two handles on either side and pull the unit straight out until the rails lock into place.)

2.

Check compatibility of motherboard ports and I/O shield:

The P4SCT+ requires a chassis big enough to support a 12" x 9.5" motherboard, such as Supermicro's SC813MT-300C 1U rackmount. Make sure that the I/O ports on the motherboard align properly with their respective holes in the I/O shield at the back of the chassis.

3.

Mounting the motherboard onto the motherboard tray:

Carefully mount the motherboard to the motherboard tray by aligning the board holes with the raised metal standoffs that are visible on the bottom of the chassis. Insert screws into all the mounting holes on your motherboard that line up with the standoffs and tighten until snug

(if you screw them in too tight, you might strip the threads). Metal screws provide an electrical contact to the motherboard ground to provide a continuous ground for the system.

5-2

Chapter 5: Advanced Motherboard Setup

5-3 Connecting Cables

Now that the motherboard is installed, the next step is to connect the cables to the board. 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 to prevent them from blocking the flow of cooling air that moves through the system from front to back. If you need to disconnect any of these cables, you should take care to keep them routed as they were originally after reconnecting them (make sure the red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). The following data cables (with their locations noted) should be connected. (See the layout on page 5-10 for connector locations.)

IDE Device cable (J5)

Serial ATA Device cables (JS1, JS2, JS3 and JS4)

Serial ATA active LED cable (JS9)

Control Panel cable (JF1)

Connecting Power Cables

The P4SCT+ has a 24-pin primary power supply connector ("ATX Power") at J20 for connection to the ATX power supply. In addition, there is a 4-pin secondary power connector at J21 that also must be connected to your power supply. See

Chapter 5 for power connector pin definitions.

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.

All JF1 wires have been bundled into a single ribbon cable to simplify this connection. Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the board. The other end connects to the Control Panel PCB board, located just behind the system status LEDs on the chassis. See Chapter 5 for details and pin descriptions.

5-5 Installing Processors

!

Avoid placing direct pressure to the top of the processor package. Always remove the power cord first before adding, removing or changing any hardware components.

Processor Support

The P4SCT+ has a single 478-pin microPGA socket, which supports Intel

Pentium 4 processors on .013 micron process.

1. Lift the lever on the CPU socket.

2. Install the CPU in the socket. Make sure that

Pin 1 of the CPU is seated on Pin 1 of the socket

(both corners are marked with a triangle).

3. Press the lever down until you hear it *click* into the locked position.

4. Apply the proper amount of thermal compound to the CPU die. Place the heatsink on top of the CPU aligning its holes with those on the retention mechanism. Screw in two diagonal screws (ie. the #1 and #2 screws) until just snug, then do the same with the remaining two screws. Finish by fully tightening all four screws (see Figure 5-4 on next page).

5-6 Installing Memory

!

CAUTION! Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM modules to prevent any possible damage.

1.

Memory support

The P4SCT+ supports 4 GB of dual-channel, ECC or non-ECC unbuffered

DDR-400/333/266 SDRAM. You must populate both DIMM0A and DIMM1A and/or DIMM0B and DIMM1B with the same size and type of memory modules. This will result in dual channel (two-way interleaved) operation, which is faster than single channel operation.

2.

Installing memory modules

Insert each memory module vertically. Pay attention to the notch along the bottom of the module to prevent inserting it incorrectly. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the slot (see Figure 5-5).

5-7 Adding PCI Cards

1.

64-bit PCI-X slot

The 5013C-MT comes with a riser card that supports one standard size 64-bit,

66 MHz PCI-X (3.3V) card. This riser card allows a single PCI-X card to sit at a 90 degree angle so it can fit inside the chassis.

2.

PCI card installation

The system should be powered down when adding or removing PCI cards. Begin by removing the top cover of the chassis. You will see a metal enclosure that houses the riser card. Remove this housing by lifting the two plastic levers at either end and pulling the housing up and out of the chassis. The riser card is attached to the inside top of the housing. Release the latch that secures the PCI slot shield to the housing by pulling it away from the housing. Remove the shield and insert a PCI-

X card into the slot on the riser card, pushing down with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card. After the card has been added, push the latch back into position. Replace the housing in the serverboard making sure the plastic levers properly catch on the chassis, then push them down to lock the housing in place. Finish by replacing the top chassis cover and powering up the system.

Note: The PCI slot shields protect the serverboard and its components from EMI and aid in proper ventilation, so make sure there is always a shield covering the slot.

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 ATA100/66 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.

Advanced Chassis Setup

This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform maintenance on the SC813MT-300C chassis. For component installation, follow the steps in the order given to eliminate the most common problems encountered.

If some steps are unnecessary, skip ahead to the step that follows.

Tools Required

The only tool you will need to install components and perform maintainance is a Philips screwdriver.

6-1 Static-Sensitive Devices

Electric Static Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very carefully. The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD 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 motherboard, 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 motherboard.

Unpacking

The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage.

When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

Figure 6-2. Chassis Rear View

6-2 Control Panel

The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected to the

JF1 connector on the motherboard to provide you with system control buttons and status indicators. These wires have been bundled together in a ribbon cable to simplify the connection. Connect the cable from JF1 on the motherboard to

JP4 on the Control Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 on both JF1 and JP4. Pull all excess cabling out of the airflow path. The LEDs inform you of system status. See Chapter 3 for details on the

LEDs and the control panel buttons. Details on JF1 can be found in Chapter 5.

6-2

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup

6-3 System Fans

Three 4-cm high-performance fans provide the cooling for the SuperServer 5013C-

MT. The chassis includes air seals under the fans and at the chassis cross section, which separates the drive bay area from the motherboard area of the chassis to promote better airflow. It is highly important that the air seal is properly installed and making a good seal in order for the cooling air to circulate properly through the chassis.

System Fan Failure

The fans run at a full 100% rpm. If a fan fails, you will need to have it replaced with the same type. Contact your vendor or Supermicro for information on replacement fans.

6-4 Drive Bay Installation/Removal

Removing the Front Bezel

If your system has a front bezel (optional) attached to the chassis, you must first remove it to gain access to the drive bays. To remove the bezel, first unlock the front of the chassis then press the release knob (see Figure 6-3). Carefully remove the bezel with both hands. A filter located within the bezel can be removed for replacement/cleaning. It is recommended that you keep a maintenance log of filter cleaning/replacement, since its condition will affect the airflow throughout the whole system.

Accessing the Drive Bays

Serial ATA Drives: Because of their hotswap capability, you do not need to access the inside of the chassis or power down the system to install or replace

Serial ATA drives. Proceed to the next step for instructions.

CD-ROM Drive: For installing/removing a CD-ROM drive, you will need to gain access to the inside of the 5013C-MT by removing the top cover of the chassis.

Proceed to the "CD-ROM Drive Installation" section later in this chapter for instructions.

Note: Only a "slim" CD-ROM drive will fit into the 5013C-MT.

Serial ATA Drive Installation

1.

Mounting a Serial ATA drive in a drive carrier

The Serial ATA drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation and removal from the chassis. These carriers also help promote proper airflow for the Serial ATA drive bays. For this reason, even empty carriers without Serial ATA drives installed must remain in the chassis. To add a new Serial ATA drive, install a drive into the carrier with the printed circuit board side toward the carrier so that the mounting holes align with those in the carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with six screws (see

Figure 6-4).

2.

Installing/removing hot-swap Serial ATA drives

Four Serial ATA drive bays are located in the front of the chassis, making them easily accessible for installation and removal. These drives are hotswappable, meaning they can be installed and removed without powering down the system. To remove, first push the release button located beside the drive LEDs, then swing the handle fully out and use it to pull the unit straight out.

!

Important: The Serial ATA drive carrier must remain in the drive bays to maintain proper airflow.

Serial ATA Power Cables

Serial ATA power cables should be routed so that they do not block the airflow through the chassis. See the motherboard layout diagram for the location of the cable connections.

Serial ATA Backplane

The Serial ATA drives plug into a backplane that provides power, drive ID and bus termination. A RAID controller can be used with the backplane to provide data security. The operating system you use must have RAID support to enable the hot-swap capability of the Serial ATA drives. The backplane is already preconfigured, so there are no jumpers or switches present on it.

S UPER S ERVER 5013C-MT User's Manual

CD-ROM Drive Installation

The top cover of the chassis must be opened to gain full access to the CD-ROM drive bay. The 5013C-MT accomodates only slim CD-ROM drives. Side mounting brackets are needed to mount a slim CD-ROM drive in the 5013C-MT server.

You must power down the system before installing or removing a CD-ROM drive.

First, release the retention screws that secure the server unit to the rack. Grasp the two handles on either side and pull the unit straight out until it locks (you will hear a "click"). Next, depress the two buttons on the top of the chassis to release the top cover and at the same time, push the cover away from you until it stops. You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.

With the chassis cover removed, unplug the power and data cables from the drive.

Then locate the locking tab at the rear of the drive. It will be on the left side of the drive when viewed from the front of the chassis. Pull the tab away from the drive and push the drive unit out the front of the chassis. Add a new drive by following this procedure in reverse order. You may hear a faint *click* of the locking tab when the drive is fully inserted. Remember to reconnect the data and power cables to the drive before replacing the chassis cover and restoring power to the system.

6-6

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup

6-5 Power Supply

The SuperServer 5013C-MT has a single 300 watt power supply. This power supply has the capability of operating at 100 or 240 input volts. Depress the main power button on the front of the chassis and then unplug the AC power cord to completely remove power from the system before removing the power supply.

Power Supply Failure

If the power supply unit fails, the system will shut down and you will need to replace the power supply unit. Replacement units can be ordered directly from

Supermicro (PWS-0054 - see contact infomation in Chapter 1).

Replacing the Power Supply

1.

Accessing the inside of the SuperServer 5013C-MT

To replace a power supply, you must first remove the top chassis cover.

To do so, 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"). Next, depress the two buttons on the top of the chassis to release the top cover and push it away from you. You can then lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.

2.

Removing the power supply

First unplug the power cord from the system. To remove the failed power unit, remove the two screws on the back of the power supply, which secure it to the chassis. You can then lift the unit straight out of the chassis. (The power cord should have already been removed.)

3.

Installing a new power supply

Replace the failed unit with another unit of the same wattage. It is highly recommended to replace it with the exact same power supply. Carefully insert the new unit into position in the chassis and secure it with the two screws at the rear of the unit. Before reconnecting the power cord, make sure the power switch on the power supply is in the off position.

Then reconnect the power cord, replace the chassis top cover and push the unit back into the rack. Finish by turning the power switch on the power supply on, and then depress the power button on the front of the system.

Chapter 7

BIOS

7-1 Introduction

This chapter describes the AwardBIOS for the P4SCT+. The Award 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. Refer to the Manual

Download area of our web site for any changes to BIOS that are not 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 AwardBIOS Flash chip stores the system parameters, such as amount of memory, type of disk drives and video displays, etc. CMOS requires very little power. When the computer is turned off, a backup battery provides power to the BIOS Flash chip, enabling it to retain the system parameters. Each time the computer is powered-on, the computer is then configured with the values stored in the BIOS ROM by the system BIOS, which gains control when the computer is powered on.

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 <Del> at the appropriate time during system boot.

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 Chipset and Power menus. Section 4-3 gives detailed descriptions of each parameter setting in the Setup utility.

Software Installation

After all the hardware has been installed, you must first configure the

Adaptec Embedded Serial ATA RAID Driver before you install the

Windows operating system. The necessary drivers are all included on the Supermicro bootable CDs that came packaged with your motherboard.

(For Adaptec's SCSI Host RAID Utility, please refer to the CDs that came with your motherboard.)

C-1 Adaptec Embedded SATA RAID Controller Driver

Serial ATA (SATA)

Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface. It uses a single cable with a minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between devices. SATA is a serial link which supports transfer rates from 150

MBps. Because the serial cables used in SATA are thinner than the traditional cables used in Parallel ATA (PATA), SATA systems have better airflow and can be installed in smaller chassis than Parallel ATA. In addition, the cables used in PATA can only extend to 40cm long, while SATA cables can extend up to one meter. Overall, SATA provides better functionality than

PATA.

Configuring BIOS settings for the SATA RAID Functions

1. Press the Del key during system bootup to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.

Note: If it is the first time to power on the system, we recommend that you load the Optimized Default Settings. If you have already done so, please skip to Step 3.

2. Use the arrow keys to select the "Exit" Menu. Once in the "Exit" Menu, scroll down the menu to select the item "Load Optimized Default Settings" and press the Enter key. Select OK to confirm the selection. Press the

Enter key to load the default settings to the BIOS.

3. Use the arrow keys to select the "Main" Menu in BIOS.

4. Scroll down to the item "SATA RAID Enable", select Enabled and press Enter.

S UPER S ERVER 5013C-MT User's Manual

5. Tap the Esc key and scroll down to "Exit". Select "Save and Exit" from the "Exit" menu. Press the Enter key to save the changes and exit the

BIOS.

6. Once you've exited the BIOS Utility, the system will re-boot.

7. During system startup, press the Ctrl and the A keys simultaneously to run the Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility when prompted by the message: "Press <Ctrl><A> for Adaptec RAID Configuration Utility".

Adaptec Embedded SATA with HostRAID Controller

Driver

Adaptec's Embedded Serial ATA RAID with HostRAID controller adds

RAID functionality to the Serial ATA I/O controller by supporting RAID 0

(Striping) or RAID 1 (Mirroring) to enhance the industry's pioneer PCI-toe host controller products. RAID striping (RAID 0) can greatly improve hard disk I/O performance because of its capability in striping data across multiple drives. RAID mirroring (RAID 1) allows the data to be simultaneously written to two drives, so critical data is always available even if one hard disk fails.

Due to this built-in functionality, your Supermicro motherboard is specially designed to keep pace with the increasing performance demands of today's computer systems by improving disk I/O throughput and providing data accessibility regardless of a single disk failure. By incorporating

Adaptec Embedded Serial ATA into the motherboard design, Supermicro offers the user the benefits of SATA RAID without the high costs associated with RAID hardware.

Note: For Adaptec's RAID Driver Installation Instructions, please refer to the Adaptec RAID Controller User's Guide: "Emb_SA_RAID_UG.pdf", which is located in the CD that came with this motherboard. You can also download a copy of Adaptec's User's Guide from our website at www.supermicro.com.

Creating Arrays

Before creating arrays, make sure the disks for the array are connected and installed in your system. Note that disks with no usable space, or disks that are un-initialized are shown in gray and cannot be used. See

Initializing Disk Drives.

To create an array

1. Turn on your computer and press Ctrl+A when prompted to access the ARC utility.

2. From the ARC menu, select Array Configuration Utility Main Menu

(ACU) (as shown on the first screen on page B-4).

3. From the ACU menu select Create Array.

4. Select the disks for the new array and press Insert (as shown on the the screen below).

Note: To deselect any disk, highlight the disk and press Delete.

5. Press Enter when both disks for the new array are selected. The

Array Properties menu displays (as the shown on the screen on the next page).

C-6

Appendix C: Software Installation

Assigning Array Properties

Once you've create a new array, you are ready to assign properties to the array.

Caution: Once the array is created and its properties are assigned, you cannot change the array properties using the ACU. You will need to use the Adaptec Storage Manager - Browser Edition. (Refer to Adaptec's

User's Guide in the enclosed CD.)

To assign properties to the new array

1. In the Array Properties menu (as shown on the following screen), select an array type and press Enter.

Note that only the available array types (RAID 0 and RAID 1) are displayed on the screen. (Using RAID 0 or RAID 1 requires two drives.)

2. Under the item "Arrays Label", type in a label and press Enter. The label cannot be more than 15 characters.

3. For RAID 0, select the desired stripe size. (Available stripe sizes are

16, 32, and 64 KB - default. It is recommended that you do not change the default setting.)

4. The item "Create RAID via" allows you to select between the different methods of creating RAID 0 and RAID 1.

The following table gives examples of when each is appropriate.

Raid Level Create Via When Appropriate

RAID 0 No Init Creating a RAID 0 on new drives

RAID 0 Migrate

(*Note)

Creating a RAID 0 from one new drive and one drive with data you wish to preserve

5. When finished, press Done (as shown on the following screen).

Note: If you select Migrate for RAID 0, or Build for RAID 1, you will be asked to select the source drive. The contents of the source drive will be preserved. However, the data on the new drive will be lost.

C-8

Appendix C: Software Installation

Notes

1. Before adding a new drive to an array, back up any data contained on the new drive. Otherwise, all data will be lost.

2. If you stop the build or clear process on a RAID 1 from ACU, you can restart it by pressing Ctrl+R.

3. A RAID 1 created using the Quick Init option may return some data miscompares if you later run a consistency check. This is normal and is not a cause for concern.

4. The ACU allows you to use drives of different sizes in a RAID. However, during a build operation, only the smaller drive can be selected as the source or first drive.

5. When migrating from single volume to RAID 0, migrating from a larger drive to a smaller drive is allowed. However, the destination drive must be at least half the capacity of the source drive.

6. Adaptec does not recommend that you migrate or build an array on

Windows dynamic disks (volumes), as it will result in data loss.

Warning: Do not interrupt the creation of RAID 0 using the Migrate option.

If you do, you will not be able to restart or to recover the data that was on the source drive.

Adding a Bootable Array

1. From the Main menu, select Manage Arrays.

2. From the list of arrays, select the array you want to make bootable and press Ctrl+B.

3. Enter Y to create a bootable array when the following message is displayed: "This will make all other existing bootable array non-bootable. Do you want to make this array bootable? (Yes/No):" A bootable array will then be created. An asterisk will appear next to the bootable array.

Deleting a Bootable Array

To delete a bootable array

1. From the Main menu, select Manage Arrays.

2. From the List of Arrays, select the bootable array (*) you want to delete and press Ctrl+B. (A bootable array is an array marked with an asterisk.)

3. Enter Y to delete a bootable array when the following message is displayed: "The array is already marked bootable. Do you want to make this array as not bootable? (Yes/No):" The bootable array will then be deleted and the asterisk will disappear.

Note: do not use the delete key to delete a bootable array.

Initializing Disk Drives

If an installed disk does not appear in the disk selection list for creating a new array or if it appears grayed out, you may have to initialize it before you can use it as part of an array. Drives attached to the controller must be initialized before they can be used in an array.

Caution: Initializing a disk overwrites the partition table on the disk and makes any data on the disk inaccessible. If the drive is used in an array, you may not be able to use the array again.

Do not initialize a disk that is part of a boot array. To determine which disks are associated with a particular array, please refer to Viewing

Array Properties.

To initialize drives:

1. Turn on your computer and press Ctrl+A when prompted to access the ARC utility.

2. From the ARC menu, select Array Configuration Utility (ACU) (as shown on the screen below).

3. Select Initialize Drives.

4. Use the up and down arrow keys to highlight the disk you wish to initialize and press Insert (as shown on the following screen).

6. Press Enter.

7. Read the warning message as shown on the screen below.

8. Make sure that you have selected the correct disk drives to initialize.

If correct, type Y to continue.

Rebuilding Arrays

Note 1: Rebuilding applies to Fault Tolerant arrays (RAID 1) only.

If an array build process (or initialization) is interrupted or critical with one member missing, you must perform a rebuild to optimized its functionality. For a critical array rebuild operation, the optimal drive is the source drive.

Note 2: If no spare array exists and a hard disk drive fails, you need to create a spare before you can rebuild an array.

To Rebuild an array:

1. From the Main Menu, select Manage Arrays. From the list of arrays, select the array you want to rebuild.

2. Press Ctrl+R to rebuild.
