About This Guide
This maintenance and service guide can be used for reference when servicing HP BladeSystem p-Class systems.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of personal injury from electric shock and hazardous energy levels, only
authorized service technicians should attempt to repair this equipment. Improper repairs can create conditions
that are hazardous.
Technician Notes
WARNING! Only authorized technicians trained by HP should attempt to repair this equipment. All
troubleshooting and repair procedures are detailed to allow only subassembly/module-level repair. Because of
the complexity of the individual boards and subassemblies, no one should attempt to make repairs at the
component level or to make modifications to any printed wiring board. Improper repairs can create a safety
hazard.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of personal injury from electric shock and hazardous energy levels, do not
exceed the level of repairs specified in these procedures. Because of the complexity of the individual boards
and subassemblies, do not attempt to make repairs at the component level or to make modifications to any
printed wiring board. Improper repairs can create conditions that are hazardous.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:
•
Disconnect power from the system by unplugging all power cords from the power supplies.
•
Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important safety
feature.
•
Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily accessible at all
times.
CAUTION: To properly ventilate the system, you must provide at least 7.6 cm (3.0 in) of clearance at the front
and back of the server.
CAUTION: The computer is designed to be electrically grounded (earthed). To ensure proper operation, plug
the AC power cord into a properly grounded AC outlet only.
NOTE: Any indications of component replacement or printed wiring board modifications may void any
warranty.

2 Removal and Replacement Procedures
This chapter provides subassembly/module-level removal and replacement procedures for system components. After
completing all necessary removal and replacement procedures, verify that all components operate properly by
running the appropriate diagnostic software:
•
For server blade components, run the Server Diagnostics utility, available from the HP website
(http://www.hp.com).
•
For server blade enclosure and power enclosure components, run the infrastructure diagnostics. Refer to Chapter
3, “Diagnostic Tools” for more information.
Safety Considerations
Electrostatic Discharge Information
•
A discharge of static electricity can damage static-sensitive devices or microcircuitry. Proper packaging and
grounding techniques are necessary precautions to prevent damage. To prevent electrostatic damage, observe
the following precautions:
•
Transport products in static-safe containers such as conductive tubes, bags, or boxes.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free stations.
•
Cover workstations with approved static-dissipating material. Use a wrist strap connected to the work surface
and properly grounded tools and equipment.
•
Keep the work area free of nonconductive materials such as ordinary plastic assembly aids and foam packing.
•
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
Server Blade Warnings and Cautions
WARNING! To reduce the risk of shock or injury from high-current electrical energy, do not remove the server
blade access panel while the server blade is installed in the server blade enclosure. Do not remove the server
blade access panel and then install the server blade into the server blade enclosure.
WARNING! Setting the server blade Power On/Standby button to the standby position removes power from
most areas of the server blade. This process may take 30 seconds, during which time some internal circuitry
remains active. To remove power completely, remove the server blade from the server blade enclosure.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the internal system components to
cool before touching them.
CAUTION: When performing non-hot-plug operations, you must power down the server blade and/or the
system. However, it may be necessary to leave the server blade powered up when performing other
operations, such as hot-plug installations or troubleshooting.
Rack Warnings and Cautions
WARNING! The power supply enclosure and the server blade enclosure are very heavy. To reduce the risk of
personal injury or damage to the equipment:
•
Observe local occupational health and safety requirements and guidelines for manual
material handling.
•
Remove hot-plug power supplies and server blades from their enclosures before installing or
removing the enclosures.
•
Use caution and get help to lift and stabilize enclosures during installation or removal,
especially when the enclosure is not fastened to the rack.
Removal and Replacement Procedures 29
WARNING! Always use at least two people to lift a power supply enclosure or server blade enclosure into the
rack. If the enclosure is being loaded into the rack above chest level, a third person MUST assist with aligning
the enclosure with the rails while the other two people support the weight of the enclosure.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, be sure that:
•
The leveling jacks of the rack are extended to the floor.
•
The full weight of the rack rests on the leveling jacks.
•
The stabilizers are attached to the rack if it is a single rack installation.
•
The racks are coupled in multiple rack installations.
WARNING! When installing the server blade enclosure in a telco rack, be sure that the rack frame is
adequately secured to the building structure.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, at least two people are needed
to safely unload the rack from the pallet. An empty 42U rack weighs 115 kg (253 lb), is over 2.1 m (7 ft) tall,
and may become unstable when being moved on its casters. Do not only stand in front of the rack as it rolls
down the ramp from the pallet, but also handle the rack from both sides.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of shock or injury from high-current electrical energy, do not reach into a server
blade enclosure once it has been installed in a rack and connected to a working rack bus bar. Do not touch
the power or data backplanes within the server blade enclosure once it has been installed.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of shock or injury from high-current electrical energy, do not reach into a power
supply enclosure once it has been installed in a rack and connected to a power source. Do not touch the
connectors within the power supply enclosure once it has been installed.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of shock or injury from high-current electrical energy, do not open any access
covers on the rack bus bar after it has been connected to a power source.
CAUTION: Protect equipment from power fluctuations and temporary interruptions with a regulating UPS
device or battery bank. This device protects the hardware from damage caused by power surges and voltage
spikes and keeps the system in operation during a power failure.
CAUTION: Always ensure that equipment is properly grounded before beginning any installation procedure.
Electrostatic discharge resulting from improper grounding can damage electronic components. For more
information, refer to the setup and installation guide.
Power Components Warnings and Cautions
WARNING! A licensed electrician or trained service personnel familiar with high-power circuitry must install
this equipment.
WARNING! Be sure power to all components is off. Be sure that the power enclosure and hot-plug power
supply LEDs are not illuminated.

Diagnostic and Local I/O Cables
CAUTION: Disconnect the diagnostic cable or the local I/O cable from the port when not in use. The port and
connector do not provide permanent connections.
CAUTION: Rear iLO connector performance degrades when the local I/O cable or the diagnostic cable is in
use, even when the iLO connector on the cable is not in use.
CAUTION: Always match the server blade connector on the local I/O cable to the I/O port that is located next
to the I/O icon. Match the server blade connector on the diagnostic cable to the diagnostic port on the front of
the server blade. Mismatched cables prevent proper connection.
Use either the diagnostic cable or the local I/O cable to perform some server blade configuration and diagnostic
procedures. Depending on the model, the server blade will have either a diagnostic port or an I/O port. The I/O port
only accepts the local I/O cable and the diagnostic port only accepts the diagnostic cable. If the server blade has an
I/O icon next to the I/O port on the front of the server blade, use the local I/O cable. If the port has no icon, use the
diagnostic cable.
Use Figure 4-16 to identify the I/O icon. Use Figure 4-17 and Table 4-15 to identify diagnostic cable connectors.

Dynamic Power Saver
When the Dynamic Power Saver feature is enabled, the total enclosure power consumption is monitored in real time.
Power supplies are placed in a standby condition when the power demand from the server enclosure is low. When
power demand increases, the standby power supplies instantaneously deliver the required power. This enables the
enclosure to operate at optimum efficiency.
NOTE: Dynamic Power Saver is a feature of the HP BladeSystem 1U Power Enclosure.
Use Figure 4-44, Figure 4-45, and Table 4-44 to identify the Dynamic Power Saver switch location and function.

Power Configuration Switches
The server blade management modules and HP BladeSystem p-Class power enclosure power management modules
have a two-position switch that identifies the use of single or multiple power zones in the rack environment.
The zone 1 switch setting is the default position; it is used for scalable bus bar, one set of mini bus bars, and power
bus box solutions. The zone 2 switch setting is only used for a secondary power zone when you configure a full-rack
42U solution with two pairs of mini bus bars.
IMPORTANT: In installations configured with the HP BladeSystem p-Class 1U Power Enclosures and Power
Supplies, the power zones are calculated dynamically using the topology information from all the connected
enclosures. Disregard the power zone switch and LEDs on the HP BladeSystem p-Class 1U Power Enclosure.
Connectors, LEDs, and Switches 104
For the system to recognize multiple power zones and rack topology properly, you must set these switches at the time
of installation. Use Figure 4-46 and Table 4-45 to identify switch locations and settings.

After the initial power-up, use the LEDs to verify correct switch settings. Refer to the “Server Blade Management
Modules” and “Power Management Module” sections in this chapter.
IMPORTANT: All power configuration switches in the same zone must be set to the same position. The system
issues alerts and the management link connector LEDs on the power management modules flash when these
switches are set improperly.
To set the switches for multiple power zones, use Example 1, Figure 4-47, and Table 4-46:
Example1: A full-rack 42U solution with two pairs of mini bus bars requires two power zones. To distinguish the two
power zones, set all the power configuration switches on management modules in the upper zone (zone 2) to the up
position; the power configuration switches on the management modules in the lower zone (zone 1) remain in the
down (default) position.

Connections and cables
HP provided cable option kit:
The facility DC connection kit supports the connection of up to
four -48 VDC, RETURN pairs and ground.
The power cable assemblies consist of 1/0 AWG, colorcoded, flexible cable rated at 105°C (221°F), terminated with
bus mating connectors at one end and not terminated at the
other end. The cable length provided enables the customer to
route to a fuse panel within or adjacent to the rack.
*All systems support redundant power configurations by using separate power inputs for each bus. Scalable bus bars provide
dual power inputs (P1 and P2) for each bus.
**Periodic and random noise (PARD). Maximum allowable peak-to-peak ripple and noise (as measured at the load on any
output channel). The ripple and noise is measured over a 20-Hz to 100-MHz frequency band. A resistive load (non-electronic)
is used for this measurement. Each output is by-passed to return by a 10-uF tantalum capacitor with an ESR less than 100 milliOhms in parallel with a 0.47-uF ceramic capacitor, at the point of load. The load cable is 12 feet of twisted wire capable of
carrying the current. The printed wiring board assembly is installed in its enclosure for this measurement, or the measurement
leads are properly shielded with Earth grounds applied to the insert.
