Managing PCI adapters for the 02E/4B, 02E/4C, 05F/6B, or 05E/6C
Observe the following precautions when working on or around your IT rack system:
v Heavy equipment–personal injury or equipment damage might result if mishandled.
v Always lower the leveling pads on the rack cabinet.
v Always install stabilizer brackets on the rack cabinet.
v To avoid hazardous conditions due to uneven mechanical loading, always install the heaviest
devices in the bottom of the rack cabinet. Always install servers and optional devices starting
from the bottom of the rack cabinet.
v Rack-mounted devices are not to be used as shelves or work spaces. Do not place objects on top
of rack-mounted devices.
v Each rack cabinet might have more than one power cord. Be sure to disconnect all power cords in
the rack cabinet when directed to disconnect power during servicing.
v Connect all devices installed in a rack cabinet to power devices installed in the same rack
cabinet. Do not plug a power cord from a device installed in one rack cabinet into a power
device installed in a different rack cabinet.
v An electrical outlet that is not correctly wired could place hazardous voltage on the metal parts of
the system or the devices that attach to the system. It is the responsibility of the customer to
ensure that the outlet is correctly wired and grounded to prevent an electrical shock.
CAUTION
v Do not install a unit in a rack where the internal rack ambient temperatures will exceed the
manufacturer's recommended ambient temperature for all your rack-mounted devices.
v Do not install a unit in a rack where the air flow is compromised. Ensure that air flow is not
blocked or reduced on any side, front, or back of a unit used for air flow through the unit.
v Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit so that
overloading of the circuits does not compromise the supply wiring or overcurrent protection. To
provide the correct power connection to a rack, refer to the rating labels located on the
equipment in the rack to determine the total power requirement of the supply circuit.
v (For sliding drawers.) Do not pull out or install any drawer or feature if the rack stabilizer brackets
are not attached to the rack. Do not pull out more than one drawer at a time. The rack might
become unstable if you pull out more than one drawer at a time.
v (For fixed drawers.) This drawer is a fixed drawer and must not be moved for servicing unless
specified by the manufacturer. Attempting to move the drawer partially or completely out of the
rack might cause the rack to become unstable or cause the drawer to fall out of the rack.

CAUTION:
Removing components from the upper positions in the rack cabinet improves rack stability during
relocation. Follow these general guidelines whenever you relocate a populated rack cabinet within a
room or building:
v Reduce the weight of the rack cabinet by removing equipment starting at the top of the rack
cabinet. When possible, restore the rack cabinet to the configuration of the rack cabinet as you
received it. If this configuration is not known, you must observe the following precautions:
– Remove all devices in the 32U position and above.
– Ensure that the heaviest devices are installed in the bottom of the rack cabinet.
– Ensure that there are no empty U-levels between devices installed in the rack cabinet below the
32U level.
v If the rack cabinet you are relocating is part of a suite of rack cabinets, detach the rack cabinet from
the suite.
v Inspect the route that you plan to take to eliminate potential hazards.
v Verify that the route that you choose can support the weight of the loaded rack cabinet. Refer to the
documentation that comes with your rack cabinet for the weight of a loaded rack cabinet.
v Verify that all door openings are at least 760 x 230 mm (30 x 80 in.).

The adapter information shown here is used during nondirected service activities. This information is
used to:
v Identify an adapter
v Find specific technical information about an adapter
v Where applicable, show special installation or cabling instructions
v Show signal names for the output-pins of the adapter connectors
v Where applicable, show the settings for switches or jumpers
Adapters can be identified by their feature code (FC) or their custom-card identification number (CCIN).
Normally, the CCIN number is labeled on the adapter.
The FRU part number (P/N) of your adapter might not match the FRU P/N listed in this information. If
the part numbers do not match, verify that the CCIN is the same. If the CCIN is same, the adapter has
the same function and can be used in the same way.
Adapters must be placed in specific peripheral component interconnect (PCI), PCI-X, or PCI Express
(PCIe) slots to function correctly or perform optimally. See the PCI adapter placement for system-specific
information about which slots are available and which adapters can be placed in those slots.

PCI Express
Learn about PCI Express (PCIe) adapters and slots.
PCI Express (PCIe) adapters use a different type of slot than Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI)
and Peripheral Component Interconnect-X (PCI-X) adapters. If you attempt to force an adapter into the
wrong type of slot, you might damage the adapter or the slot. A PCI adapter can be installed in a PCI-X
slot, and a PCI-X adapter can be installed in a PCI adapter slot. A PCIe adapter cannot be installed in a
PCI or PCI-X adapter slot, and a PCI or PCI-X adapter cannot be installed in a PCIe slot. The following
illustration shows an example of a PCI-X adapter (A) next to a PCIe 4x (B) adapter.
Figure 1. PCI-X adapter and PCIe 4x adapter
PCIe adapters and slots come in 4 different sizes: 1x, 4x, 8x, and 16x. Smaller size adapters do fit in larger
slots, but larger size adapters do not fit in smaller slots. The following table shows PCIe slot
compatibility.

Handling static sensitive devices
Electronic boards, adapters, media drives, and disk drives are sensitive to static electricity discharge.
These devices are wrapped in antistatic bags to prevent this damage. Take these precautions to prevent
damage to these devices from static electricity discharge.
v Attach a wrist strap to an unpainted metal surface of your hardware to prevent electrostatic discharge
from damaging your hardware.
v When using a wrist strap, follow all electrical safety procedures. A wrist strap is for static control. It
does not increase or decrease your risk of receiving electric shock when using or working on electrical
equipment.
v If you do not have a wrist strap, before removing the product from ESD packaging and installing or
replacing hardware, touch an unpainted metal surface of the system for a minimum of 5 seconds.
v Do not remove the device from the antistatic bag until you are ready to install the device in the
system.
v With the device still in its antistatic bag, touch it to the metal frame of the system.
Managing PCI adapters
3
v Grasp cards and boards by the edges. Avoid touching the components and gold-edge connectors on the
adapter.
v If you need to lay the device down while it is out of the antistatic bag, lay it on the antistatic bag.
Before picking it up again, touch the antistatic bag and the metal frame of the system at the same time.
v Handle the devices carefully to prevent permanent damage.
Important partitioning considerations with dual-slot and multi-adapter
configurations
Learn about partitioning considerations with dual-slot and multi-adapter configurations.
Logical partitions can own physical I/O resources. Physical I/O resources are assigned to logical
partitions at the slot level. Assigning a slot to a logical partition enables the operating system that runs in
the logical partition to control the functionality of the I/O resource and power for that slot. When the
operating system powers a slot on or off, the physical I/O resource is powered on or off.
In some I/O configurations, the functionality of an adapter or I/O resource depends on two or more
physical slots. For example, if you have a double-wide RAID adapter (FC 2053, 2054, or 2055) that take
up two adjacent adapter slots or two separate RAID adapters paired together, both physical slots must be
assigned to the same logical partition. For example, if you install the FC 2053, 2054, or 2055 adapter in
slot 2, then the adjacent slot 3 cannot be used to install another adapter even though the slot 3 is reported
as empty. It is important to understand the wanted configuration and function being provided before
completing the logical partitioning and activation of the resources involved.
There are two I/O configurations involving adapter pairs:
v Mult-initiator and high availability
v Auxiliary Write Cache
Multi-initiator and high availability
The terms multi-initiator and high availability (HA) refer to connecting multiple adapters (typically two
adapters) to a common set of disk expansion drawers for increasing availability. This configuration is also
referred to as Dual Storage IOA configuration. This type of connection is commonly done in either of the
following configurations:
Note: Some systems have SAS RAID adapters integrated onto the system boards and use a Cache RAID Dual IOA Enablement Card (FC 5662) to enable storage adapter Write Cache and Dual Storage IOA (HA
RAID Mode). For these configurations, installation of the Cache RAID - Dual IOA Enablement Card
places the two integrated adapters into a HA RAID configuration. There are no separate SAS cables
required to connect the two integrated SAS RAID adapters to each other.
HA two-system configuration
An HA two-system configuration provides a high-availability environment for system storage by enabling
two systems or partitions to have access to the same set of disks and disk arrays. This feature is typically
used with the IBM® High-Availability Cluster Multiprocessing application (HACMP™ ). The IBM HACMP
software provides a commercial computing environment that ensures that mission-critical applications
can recover quickly from hardware and software failures. The support for this configuration is operating
system dependent.
HA single system configuration
An HA single system configuration provides for redundant adapters from a single system to the same set
of disks and disk arrays. This feature is typically referred to as Multi-Path I/O (MPIO). MPIO support is
4
Managing PCI adapters for the 02E/4B, 02E/4C, 05F/6B, or 05E/6C
part of the operating system support and can be used to provide a redundant SAS RAID controller
configuration with RAID protected disks.
Auxiliary write cache adapter
The auxiliary write cache (AWC) adapter provides a duplicate, nonvolatile copy of write cache data of the
RAID controller to which it is connected.
Protection of data is enhanced by having two battery-backed (nonvolatile) copies of write cache, each
stored on separate adapters. If a failure occurs to the write cache portion of the RAID controller, or the
RAID controller itself fails in such a way that the write cache data is not recoverable, the AWC adapter
provides a backup copy of the write cache data to prevent data loss during the recovery of the failed
RAID controller. The cache data is recovered to the new replacement RAID controller and then written
out to disk before resuming normal operations.
The AWC adapter is not a failover device that can keep the system operational by continuing disk
operations when the attached RAID controller fails. The system cannot use the auxiliary copy of the
cache for runtime operations even if only the cache on the RAID controller fails. The AWC adapter does
not support any other device attachment and performs no other tasks than communicating with the
attached RAID controller to receive backup write cache data. The purpose of the AWC adapter is to
minimize the length of an unplanned outage, due to a failure of a RAID controller, by preventing loss of
critical data that might have otherwise required a system reload.
It is important to understand the difference between multi-initiator connections and AWC connections.
Connecting controllers in a multi-initiator environment refers to multiple RAID controllers connected to a
common set of disk enclosures and disks. The AWC controller is not connected to the disks, and it does
not perform device media accesses.
The RAID controller and the AWC adapter each require a PCI bus connection and are required to be in
the same partition. The two adapters are connected by an internal connection. For the planar RAID
enablement and planar auxiliary cache features, the dedicated connection is integrated into the system
planar.

Replacing Fibre Channel adapters by using hot swap
When hot swapping Fibre Channel adapters, be aware that device-related software for the storage devices
might have additional devices (for example, the disk array router (dar) device associated with the fiber
array storage technology (FAStT) or DS4800) that need to be removed. See the specific storage device
documentation for information about how to remove these additional devices.
The new adapter has a unique worldwide port name (WWPN). Check the zoning and logical unit
number (LUN) assignments to ensure that the new adapter functions as expected.

PCIe2 LP 8 Gb 4-port Fibre Channel Adapter (FC EN0Y; CCIN EN0Y)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) EN0Y
adapters.
Overview
The PCIe2 LP 8 Gb 4-port Fibre Channel Adapter is a PCI Express (PCIe) generation-2, low-profile,
high-performance, x8 short form factor plus (SFF+) Host Bus Adapter (HBA). This adapter enables
multiple logical (virtual) connections to share the same physical port. Each logical connection has its own
resources and the ability to be managed independently. Each port provides single initiator capability over
a fiber link or provides multiple initiator capability with N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV). The ports are
connected by using mini little connectors (mini-LC) type connectors. These connectors use shortwave
laser optics. The adapter operates at link speeds of 2, 4, and 8 gigabits per second (Gbps) and
automatically negotiates to the highest speed possible. LEDs on each port provide information about the
connection status and link speed of the port. The adapter connects to a Fibre Channel switch.
The LEDs on the adapter indicate the TX/RX and link status as shown in Table 20 on page 52.
Figure 19 on page 52 shows the adapter.

Description and technical overview
The 1 Gigabit iSCSI TOE PCI-X Adapter encapsulates SCSI commands and data into TCP packets and
transports them over a 1-gigabit-Ethernet network through IP. The adapter is dual function, operating as
an iSCSI TOE (TCP/IP offload engine) adapter or as a general purpose Ethernet adapter where the
TCP/IP protocol is offloaded onto the adapter.
The adapter is available in the following versions:
1 Gigabit-SX iSCSI TOE PCI-X Adapter (optical connector), FC 5714
1 Gigabit-TX iSCSI TOE PCI-X Adapter (copper connector), FC 5713 and FC 1986

Overview of configuration process:
Managing PCI adapters
71
These are the steps in the configuration process.
1. Install any device-specific storage device support files. See “Installing the device-specific storage
support files.”
2. Use the smit command to configure the adapter in AIX. See “Configuring the adapter in AIX.”
3. Update the iSCSI targets flat file. See “Updating the iSCSI targets flat file” on page 73.
4. Configure the storage device. See “Configuring the storage device” on page 73.
Notes:
1. The adapter does not support autonegotiation. Connected devices should be set to 1
gigabit-per-second only.
2. Some Ethernet switch configurations exhibit degraded reliability when configured in a high fan-in
topology. Observe conservative LAN resource allocation practices when planning Ethernet storage
networks.
Installing the device-specific storage support files:
For the system to function correctly with AIX, storage devices often require support-files. These files
might include special utilities or device specific object data manager (ODM) entries.
Refer to the support documentation provided by the manufacturer of the storage device being used.

v Set the value for the Maximum number of Commands to Queue to Adapter to be greater than the
queue depth times the number of LUNs. For example, for 20 LUNs with a queue depth of 20, the
value should be greater than 400.
v To use flat file discovery, the Discovery Policy must be set to "file."
v Change the default file name /etc/iscsi/targetshw from targetshw to targetshwx where x is the adapter
instance number (Examples: ics0, ics1 ).
v The user may specify the iSCSI node name. If it is not specified, the adapter will use the default iSCSI
node name provided by the adapter. To display the iSCSI node name used by a particular adapter, use
the lscfg command to display the adapter VPD. For example, to display the iSCSI node name for ics0,
use lscfg -vl ics0. The iSCSI node name is in the Z1 field of the displayed VPD. The initiator's iSCSI
node name may be required to configure some iSCSI targets.
v If the rmdev command with the -d option is issued, then you must reenter the data in the specified
fields.
Updating the iSCSI targets flat file:
When autodiscovery is not used, the 1 Gigabit iSCSI TOE PCI-X adapter obtains the iSCSI target
descriptions from a flat file. The default file name is /etc/iscsi/targetshw. The information in this file
must accurately describe the target devices for this adapter.
Configuring the storage device:
To be visible to the adapter, storage devices must be correctly configured. Often the storage device must
be informed of the adapter iSCSI name, and the adapter must be informed of the storage device iSCSI
name. Additionally, either or both may need specific permissions to access the other side of the iSCSI
connection.
For instruction on configuring the storage device, refer to the support documentation provided by the
manufacturer of the storage device.
Connecting the adapter to an Ethernet network
Use this information to learn about connecting the 1 Gigabit iSCSI TOE PCI-X Adapter to your Ethernet
network.
Connecting the 1 Gigabit-SX iSCSI TOE PCI-X adapter (optical connector) to an Ethernet network:
The fiber adapters are designed with specifications that the cable be a dual-cable connector, with transmit
and receive cable ends clamped together. If you use separate transmit and receive fiber cables, clamp the
cables together to enhance the retention strength on the fiber transceiver connector. Clamping the cables
together also improves the alignment of the fibers with the connector and is designed to improve overall
performance.
Note: Only one type of network can be attached to the adapter at a time.

Resolving configuration errors
Learn about config logging information, iSCSI TOE adapter error log information (ICS_ERR template),
and iSCSI TOE protocol driver error log detail (ISCSI_ERR template).
This information might be useful for resolving configuration errors.
Config logging information:
It might be helpful to use the config log facility when trying to debug the iSCSI environment.
The most common error scenario is when cfgmgr -vl ics0 completes successfully, but does not create
any hdisks, or creates fewer hdisks than expected. Several common configuration errors can lead to this
scenario. The cfglog can be used to determine which of several common errors may have occurred.
You can run the following command to display any captured config log data:
alog -o -t cfg
To display information about the log file configuration, such as the location of the log file, run:
alog -L -t cfg
If config logging is not enabled, it can be enabled as follows:
export CFGLOG=""
echo "Create cfglog" | alog -t cfg
A useful debug method is to perform the following steps:
Managing PCI adapters
75
rmdev -Rl ics<x>
rm /usr/adm/ras/cfglog
echo "Create cfglog" | alog -t cfg
cfgmgr -l ics<x>
alog -o -t cfg
Some common errors will cause the open of the iSCSI protocol device driver to fail. In this case, the
cfglog will contain a message such as the following, where XX is an error number from errno.h
open of /dev/iscsi0 returned XX" where XX is an error number from errno.h.
The value returned by the open can indicate the problem. Two common values that can be caused by a
configuration error are 69 (ENETDOWN) and 70 (ENETUNREACH).
The return code 69 indicates that the link attached to the iSCSI adapter is physically down. Check to see
if the cable is correctly plugged in.
The return code 70 indicates that the link is up, but that the adapter was unable to obtain a client address
from DHCP. If the adapter's host_addr attribute is not set to a valid IP address, the adapter will attempt
to acquire an IP address from a DHCP server. If no DHCP server provides an IP address, the open will
fail with a return code 70.
After a successful open, the configuration method will attempt to start the device. If the SCIOLSTART
ioctl fails, it will prevent the discovery of the hdisks. A failure of SCIOLSTART will be recorded in the
config log as follows:
SCIOLSTART failed, errno = E, status_class = C, status_detail = D
If the values of C or D for the Status Class and Status Detail are nonzero, it indicates that the iSCSI login
failed. The Status Class and Status Detail are values returned in the iSCSI login response. The meaning of
the Status Class and Status Detail values are documented in the iSCSI RFC 3270.
The SCIOLSTART ioctl may also fail before it attempts the iSCSI login. If the Status Class and Status
Detail are both zero but Errno is nonzero, then the ioctl failed before the login occurred.
Two common errno values returned by the SCIOLSTART ioctl are 73 (ECONNRESET) and 81
(EHOSTUNREACH).
The errno 73 indicates that the target IP address refused the TCP connection that the iSCSI adapter
attempted. One possible cause is that the wrong TCP port number is specified in the
/etc/iscsi/targetshwx configuration file.
The errno 81 indicates that the iSCSI adapter did not get any response from the target's IP address. In
other words, the iSCSI adapter cannot ping the target's IP address.
If the iSCSI adapter does not discover any new hdisks, and the cfglog does not reveal any of those errors,
the following are other possibilities.
v If the syntax of the /etc/iscsi/targetshwx file is incorrect, the configuration method will not attempt
to open or start the device, so the preceding errors will not appear.
v If the target device is accessible but no LUNs are assigned to the device, no error will appear, but there
will be a message indicating 0 luns found.

Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) 5260 adapters.
Overview
FC 5260 and FC 5899 are both the same adapter with different feature codes. FC 5260 is a low-profile
adapter and the FC 5899 is a full-height adapter. The names of these two adapters are:
v FC 5260: PCIe2 LP 4-port 1GbE Adapter
v FC 5899: PCIe2 4-port 1GbE Adapter
The PCIe2 LP 4-port 1GbE Adapter is a short, low-profile, generation-2 PCIe adapter. This adapter
provides four 1-Gb Ethernet ports that can be configured to run at 1000 Megabits per second (Mbps) (or 1
Gigabit per second (Gbps)), 100 Mbps, or 10 Mbps. Each of the Ethernet ports can be connected by using
4-pair, CAT5, Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables up to 100 meters (328 feet) in length. The cables are
attached to the copper RJ45 connectors. Each port is independent of one another and supports full-duplex
or half-duplex. The half-duplex mode does not support a speed of 1000 Mbps. The adapter conforms to
the IEEE 802.3ab 1000Base-T standard and supports jumbo frames when running at the 1000 Mbps speed.

2B52)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) 5279 adapters.
Overview
The FC 5279 and FC 5745 are both the same adapter. FC 5745 is a full-height adapter, and the FC 5279 is
a low-profile adapter. The names of these two adapters are:
v FC 5745: PCIe2 2x10GbE SFP+ Copper 2x1GbE UTP Adapter
v FC 5279: PCIe2 LP 2x10GbE SFP+ Copper 2x1GbE UTP Adapter
The PCIe2 LP 2x10GbE SFP+ Copper 2x1GbE adapter is a PCI Express (PCIe) generation-2, low-profile,
four-ported, Ethernet unified wire adapter with a PCIe 2.0 host bus interface. The adapter is optimized
for cloud computing, virtualization, storage, and other data center applications. The four-port adapter
provides two 10 Gb Ethernet ports and two 1 Gb Ethernet ports. The two 10 Gb small form-factor
pluggable (SFP+) copper transceiver ports are used for connectivity with other servers or switches in the
network. Each SFP+ port provides Ethernet connectivity with a nominal data rate of 10 Gbps (gigabits
per second), and uses SFP+ copper twinaxial cables up to 5 m (16.4 ft) in length. Each of the RJ45 ports
provides Ethernet connectivity at a data rate of 1 Gbps and are connected with unshielded twisted-pair
(UTP) Ethernet cables. The link aggregation and failover features of the adapter are ideal for critical
network applications that require redundancy and high availability. Figure 33 on page 110shows the FC
5745 adapter.
Note: The SFP+ twinaxialial copper cables have connectors that are not the same as the AS/400® 5250

digitally signs status messages to confirm that the PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor is genuine and
that no tampering has occurred.
192
Managing PCI adapters for the 02E/4B, 02E/4C, 05F/6B, or 05E/6C
If any of the secure module's tamper sensors are triggered by tampering or by accident, the PCI-X
Cryptographic Coprocessor erases all data in the protected memory, including the certified device
key. Incorrect removal of the batteries triggers the tamper sensors and deletes the certified device
keys. The PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor cannot operate without the certified device keys. To
protect the keys, follow the guidelines given in the documentation provided with the coprocessor.
Attention: The batteries keep the coprocessor powered on even when it is not installed in a
system. When handling, installing, or removing the adapter, ensure that the adapter circuits do
not come in contact with any conductive surface or tools. Doing so can render the adapter
permanently inoperable.
Do not remove the batteries from the adapter. Data in the protected memory is lost when battery
power is removed. For information about replacing the batteries, see “Replacing the batteries” on
page 196.
Attention:
While installing the coprocessor, observe the following precautions:
v The coprocessor is always powered by the batteries, even when it is not installed in the system.
v The battery power is necessary to keep the coprocessor operational.
v The loss of battery power or a voltage drop triggers a Tamper Event and permanently renders
the coprocessor inoperable.
v Any short on the battery power distribution circuits causes a voltage drop and a Tamper Event.
v Do not lay the coprocessor on or cause the coprocessor to come in contact with any conductive
surface.
v Do not touch the coprocessor circuits with metal or conductive tools.
v Use static-protective measures at all times when handling the coprocessor.

Replacing the batteries
Two lithium batteries that are mounted on the adapter supply power to the adapter components,
including protected memory. Support software or application software can query the coprocessor to
determine whether the batteries must be replaced. When the batteries need replacing, have the procedure
done by trained service providers using the 41V1061 Battery kit for the 4764.
CAUTION:
Only trained service personnel may replace this battery. The battery contains lithium. To avoid
possible explosion, do not burn or charge the battery.
Do Not:
v ___ Throw or immerse into water
v ___ Heat to more than 100 degrees C (212 degrees F)
v ___ Repair or disassemble
Exchange only with the approved part. Recycle or discard the battery as instructed by local
regulations. (C002a)
The Battery Replacement Kit includes:
v Two replacement batteries
v A battery tray with connecting wires
v Two sets of spare battery attention labels
To replace the batteries, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the computer and all attached devices.

Handling requirements
Each PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor includes a certified device key. This electronic key, which is
stored in the adapter's battery-powered and protected memory, digitally signs status messages to
confirm that the PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor is genuine and that no tampering has occurred.
If any of the secure module's tamper sensors are triggered by tampering or by accident, the PCIe
Cryptographic Coprocessor erases all data in the protected memory, including the certified device
key. Incorrect removal of the batteries triggers the tamper sensors and destroys the certified
device keys. The PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor cannot operate without the certified device
keys. To protect the keys, follow the guidelines given in the documentation provided with the
coprocessor.
Attention: The batteries keep the coprocessor powered on even when it is not installed in a
system. When handling, installing, or removing the adapter, do not let the adapter circuits come
in contact with any conductive surface or tools. Doing so can render the adapter permanently
inoperable.
Do not remove the batteries of the adapter. Data in the protected memory is lost when battery
power is removed. .

PCIe RAID and SSD SAS adapter 3 Gb (FC 2053, FC 2055; CCIN 57CD)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) 2053 or 2055
adapter.
Overview
The PCIe-based solid-state drive (SSD) offering consists of a SAS PCIe adapter and an SSD module. The
RAID and SSD SAS adapter is a double-wide, low-profile, short, PCIe x8 adapter that requires two
adjacent PCIe slots. You can plug one, two, or four SSD modules directly onto the adapter and avoid
using any SFF, 3.5 inch SAS bays, or any cabling to the SAS disk enclosures.
Though it is physically the same PCIe adapter, there are two feature codes (FC):
v PCIe RAID and SSD SAS Adapter 3 Gb (FC 2053) designates a low-profile PCIe adapter to be used in
the 7/10, 7/20, 7/30, and 7/40 low-profile slots.
v PCIe RAID and SSD SAS Adapter 3 Gb with Blind Swap Cassette (FC 2055) designates that the PCIe
adapter is in a double-wide blind swap cassette for use in a 12X-attached 5802/5877 PCIe I/O drawer.
Managing PCI adapters
203
Though it is physically the same SSD module, two feature codes are used to describe the different
operating system environments. The following are the two codes that enable the IBM configurator tools
to track the different SSD protection rules that are associated with the AIX and Linux operating systems:
v 177 GB SSD Module with enterprise multi-level cell (EMLC) (AIX or Linux) is FC 1995
v 177 GB SSD Module with EMLC () is FC 1996
There are multiple configuration options that provide SSD protection and redundancy. If you want
redundancy at an adapter level, you can mirror the SSD module of one PCIe RAID and SSD SAS Adapter
against the SSD module of another PCIe RAID and SSD SAS Adapter using the AIX or Linux operating
system. This is recommended because there is no write cache in the PCIe RAID and SSD SAS Adapter.
However, the RAID 5 or RAID 6 can also be used. If you want RAID 0, you must mirror the SSD module
though the operating system. Ensure that if an SSD module requires to be replaced or moved, the PCIe
RAID and SSD SAS Adapter on which the SSD module is located must be removed from the server or
I/O drawer before the SSD module can be accessed. This action is different from the existing 69 GB SSD
configurations, which can use the SAS bay hot-plug capability to remove and replace a single SSD
module without removing the associated PCI SAS adapter.
For the AIX and Linux operating systems, if you do not want to have PCIe RAID and SSD SAS Adapter
redundancy, but still want to protect the SSD module content, the PCIe RAID and SSD SAS Adapter can
provide RAID 5 or RAID-6 level protection on the PCIe adapter. RAID 10 is not supported for the PCIe
RAID and SSD SAS adapter. Hot-spare capability can optionally be used with RAID 5 but the spare SSD
module must be on that same PCIe RAID and SSD SAS adapter.
The following figure shows the adapter.

PCIe Dual - x4 3 Gb SAS RAID Adapter (FC 5903 and FC 5805; CCIN
574E)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) 5903 and FC
5805 adapters.
Overview
The PCI Express (PCIe) Dual - x4 3 Gb SAS RAID Adapter supports the attachment of Serial attached
SCSI (SAS) disk and SAS solid-state drives using a pair of mini SAS 4x connectors. The 5903 or 5805 has
a 380 MB write cache and a concurrently replaceable cache battery pack. The adapter must always be
installed in pairs and is always to be used in a high availability, multi-initiator RAID configuration using
two adapters in dual-controller mode. Two 5903 or 5805 adapters provide mirrored write-cache data and
mirrored RAID parity footprints between the adapters. If the 5903 or 5805 pairing is broken, then write
cache is disabled.
Important: See the SAS RAID controllers for AIX, SAS RAID controllers for Linux, or SAS RAID
controllers for topics for more information and important considerations for multi-initiator and high
availability or dual storage IOA configurations
The 5903 or 5805 supports SAS small form factor (SFF) disk drives located in a PCIe 12X I/O Drawer or
SAS disk drives located in an EXP 12S Disk Drawer. It can also be connected to the internal disk drives in
the system unit using the appropriate split disk backplane feature and cabling.
The adapter is a 3.3 V, PCI-e x8 bootable SAS adapter that supports RAID levels 0, 5, 6, and 10.
With adequate cabling and configuration, multiple wide ports are used to provide redundant paths to
each dual port SAS drive or solid-state drive. The adapter manages SAS path redundancy and path
switching in case a SAS failure occur.
The 5903 or 5805 contains a LED ((C) in Figure 62 on page 210) that flashes if the cache data is present.
The cache-data present LED flashes when there is possible data in the cache on the adapter. If the cache
data present LED is flashing, do not replace the cache battery pack. If replaced when the LED is flashing,
the cache data is lost. See Figure 62 on page 210 to locate the cache-data present LED on this adapter.

209
Attention: Do not attempt to replace the cache battery pack if the cache-data present LED on the card is
flashing. The cache-data present LED indicates that there is possible data in the cache on the adapter. To
prevent data loss, first make sure that the system has been shut down correctly. If the cache-data present
LED is flashing, refer to one of the following topics before removing the cache battery pack.

PCI-X DDR Dual –x4 Port SAS RAID Adapter (FC 5902; CCIN 572B)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the 5902 adapter.
Overview
The PCI-X DDR Dual –x4 Port SAS RAID Adapter is a long-form factor adapter for high-performance,
serial-attached SCSI (SAS) applications. FC 5902 is always to be used in a high availability, multi-initiator
RAID configuration using two adapters in dual-controller mode. Two 5902 adapters provide for
mirrored-write cache data and mirrored-RAID parity footprints between the two adapters. If the 5902
pairing is broken, then write cache is disabled. With correct cabling, multiple wide ports are used to
provide redundant paths to each dual port SAS disk. The adapter manages SAS path redundancy and
path switching should a SAS failure occur. The adapter is a 64 bit, 3.3 V, bootable SAS adapter that
supports RAID levels 0, 5, 6, and 10. The adapter pairs are used primarily with EXP 12S SAS disk
expansion drawers, FC 5886, but can also be connected to the internal disk drives in the system unit
using the appropriate split disk backplane feature and cabling.

Overview
The PCI-X DDR 1.5 GB cache SAS RAID Adapter is a SAS disk controller with a maximum of 1.5 GB
compressed write cache and a maximum 1.6 GB compressed read cache. Auxiliary write cache and
concurrent battery maintenance are provided. The controller is implemented by using two physical
adapters that are securely connected to form a double-wide adapter. The double-wide adapter requires
two adjacent Peripheral Component Interconnect-X (PCI-X) slots. The auxiliary write cache side of the
double-wide adapter contains a dual, concurrently maintainable cache battery pack which maintains
cache memory on both adapters in the event of an abnormal termination.
When used in a logical partition (LPAR) environment, this double-wide adapter must have both slots of
the adapter assigned to the same logical partition. When implementing dynamic LPAR (DLPAR), both
slots of the adapter must be managed together.
Feature 5904, 5906, and 5908 are all feature codes that represent the same PCI-X DDR 1.5 GB cache SAS
RAID Adapter. Different feature codes indicate whether a blind swap cassette is used and its type:
v Feature 5904 indicates no blind swap cassette. The feature is used in enclosures that do not use blind
swap cassettes.
v Feature 5906 indicates a gen-2.5 blind swap cassette. The feature is used in the 5797 and 5798
enclosures.
v Feature 5908 indicates a gen-3 blind swap cassette. This feature is used in the 5790 and 5796 enclosures.
572F is the CCIN number on the RAID adapter side of the double-wide adapter pair. 575C is the CCIN
number on the write-cache adapter.
The adapter provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10 for the AIX and Linux operating systems.
Under the operating system, mirroring and data spreading are provided by the operating system, and
RAID 5 and RAID 6 are provided by the adapter. 1
The adapter provides three mini-SAS 4x connectors for the attachment of SAS drives in 5886 EXP 12S
Expansion Drawers. The adapter supports a maximum of five 5886 EXP 12S Expansion Drawers.1 With
correct cabling and configuration, multiple wide ports are used to provide redundant paths to each dual
port SAS drive. The adapter manages SAS path redundancy and path switching if a SAS failure occurs.
With the optional pairing of adapter sets, an even higher level of protection is provided by using a dual
controller I/O configuration1 to protect against the failure of an entire adapter set. In such a high
availability I/O configuration, SAS X cables are used to attach 5586 EXP 12S Expansion Drawers. The
fourth mini-SAS connector on each card set is used to directly connect the card sets by using a SAS AA
cable.
Important: For more information and important considerations for multi-initiator and high availability
or dual storage IOA configurations, see the SAS RAID controllers for AIX, SAS RAID controllers for
Linux, or SAS RAID controllers for topics.

PCI-X DDR External Dual – x4 Port SAS Adapter (FC 5900; CCIN 572A)
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the feature code (FC) 5900 adapter.
Overview
The Peripheral Component Interconnect-X (PCI-X) DDR External Dual – x4 Port SAS Adapter is a
low-profile adapter for high-performance and high-density, serial-attached SCSI (SAS) applications. The
adapter provides two mini SAS 4x connectors, which allow the eight physical links to be used in various
narrow and wide-port configurations. The adapter is a 64-bit, 3.3 V, bootable SAS adapter that provides
RAID 0, 5, 6, and 10 capability. Some RAID level support is operating system dependent. The adapter
provides RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6 and RAID 10 for systems running the AIX or Linux operating system.
Under the operating system, mirroring and data spreading is provided by the operating system and
RAID 5 and RAID 6 is provided by the adapter.
The adapter does not have write cache. (The write performance of RAID level 5 and RAID level 6 may be
poor on adapters which do not provide write cache. Consider using an adapter which provides write
cache when using RAID level 5 or RAID level 6.)
The adapter can address up to 48 SAS disk drives, although the actual number of drives in a system is
subject to the physical placement limitations of the system. Externally attached devices are designed to
run at a data rate of 1.5 Gb/s for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) devices, and 3 Gb/s
for SAS devices. This card supports RAID and non-RAID DASD, tape, and optical devices. Feature 5900
supports the multi-initiator and high availability configurations.

228
Managing PCI adapters for the 02E/4B, 02E/4C, 05F/6B, or 05E/6C
Overview
The PCI Express (PCIe) generation-2, 1.8 GB Cache RAID SAS Tri-port 6 Gb Adapter is a large cache
PCIe2 SAS adapter that provides high-performance capabilities and supports the attachment of
serial-attached SCSI (SAS) disks and SAS solid-state drives through mini SAS HD (high density)
connectors. The feature code (FC) 5913 has a 1.8 GB write-cache. The adapter must be installed in pairs
and must be used in a high availability, multi-initiator RAID configuration with two adapters in
dual-controller mode (Dual Storage IOA configuration). Two FC 5913 adapters provide additional
performance and adapter redundancy with mirrored write-cache data and mirrored RAID parity
footprints between the adapters. If the FC 5913 pairing is broken, then the write cache is disabled.
Integrated flash memory with capacitors provides protection of the write cache in case of power failure,
without the need for batteries as were used with previous large cache adapters.
To provide the highest bandwidth between two paired feature 5913 adapters for the mirroring of cache
data and parity update footprints, a SAS Adapter-to-Adapter (AA) cable is required by default on the
third adapter port until maximum device quantity attachment is required. When all three connectors are
attaching SAS drives, the communication between the adapter pair is performed through the SAS fabric
via the I/O drawer and cabling.
The FC 5913 is a single wide, full-height, short adapter.
Every FC 5913 requires another 6 Gbps SAS RAID adapter (FC 5913) on this server, or on another server,
which pairs with the SAS RAID adapter and enables the onboard caches to function. See Figure 69 on
page 231 that shows the FC 5913 adapter.
Systems running the AIX or Linux operating systems support either having both 5913 features in the
same system or partition, or in two separate systems or partitions. Systems running the operating system
do not support the pairing of adapters on different servers or different partitions, so both the 5913
features must be installed on the same system or partition.

PCI-X Ultra4 RAID disk-controller adapters used with it.
Feature 5580 includes a 2780 Peripheral Component Interconnect-X (PCI-X) Ultra4 RAID disk-controller
adapter, a CCIN 5708 auxiliary-write cache IOA adapter, and the required connection cable.
The following figure shows the adapter:

A
SCSI port used to attach the auxilary-write cache IOA to a supported disk-controller. See
“Installing the SCSI cable” on page 241.
B
Unused SCSI port shown here with a cover over it.
A physical cable connection is required between the 5708 adapter and SCSI port 4 of a 2780 or 2757
adapter. Both the 5708 adapter and the disk-controller adapter it is connected to must be installed in the
same physical system unit or expansion unit, and must be installed in the same partition.
Managing PCI adapters
239
The 5708 adapter has 757 MB of auxiliary maximum compressed write cache. The adapter mirrors the
write cache of the disk-controller adapter that it is connected to. Protection of data is enhanced by having
two copies of the write cache stored on separate adapters. If a failure occurs to the write cache of the
disk-controller, the 5708 adapter provides a backup copy during the recovery of the failed IOA.
Considerations for installing or converting to feature 5580
Attention: Converting your adapters to feature 5580 will require extensive planning. If the planning is
not done correctly, the result could be an extended server outage, loss of data, or both. You might need to
do a full system restoration.
Read the following questions in relation to your system:
v Are you converting from feature 2780 to feature 5580?
v Are you replacing any other existing storage adapters with features 5580?
v Is your server partitioned (LPAR)?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, or you are unsure of the answers, contact your authorized
service provider for planning and deployment services.
See the topics for the PCI adapter placement for details on slot priorities and placement rules.

Installing the adapters
For instructions on how to install PCI adapters, see Installing the PCI adapters topic.
Return here for instruction on installing the SCSI cable.
Installing the SCSI cable
The disk controller adapter and the auxiliary-write cache adapter are connected by a SCSI cable.
Attention: Do not install or remove the adapter cable if the adapters have the power on. Use the service
procedures to turn off the power to the adapter slots or shut down the system or partition in which the
adapters are placed.
To install the SCSI cable, do the following steps:
1. Attach the SCSI cable to SCSI bus port 3 (fourth physical port) of the disk controller adapter. See the
following figure.
2. Attach the cable to SCSI port A on the auxiliary-write cache adapter. See Figure 70 on page 239.
Note:
1. Attaching the cable to the disk controller reduces the number of SCSI buses that support disk drives
from four to three.
2. Reducing the number of SCSI buses might also reduce the number of disk drives supported by the
disk controller, depending on the system unit or expansion drawer in which the disk controller is
installed.
Managing PCI adapters
241
3. No disk drives are driven by the auxiliary-write cache adapter. This adapter protects against extended
outage caused by loss of write cache, but does not protect against a disk controller failure.

Overview
The PCI-X DDR Dual-Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter is a high-performance SCSI adapter for Peripheral
Component Interconnect-X (PCI-X) and PCI systems. The adapter provides two SCSI channels (buses),
each capable of running at a maximum speed of 320 Megabytes per second (MBps). Each SCSI bus can
either be internal (on systems that support internal SCSI devices or backplane attachments) or external,
but not both. Internally attached Ultra320 devices run at a data rate of up to 320 MBps on systems that
have internal backplanes that support Ultra320 speeds.
The adapter uses and supports low voltage differential (LVD) drivers and receivers only.
See the topics for the PCI adapter placement for details on slot priorities and placement rules.

Placement information
For placement information for this adapters, see PCI adapter placement, including the section High-end
SCSI controller placement.
Logical partitioning
When used in a logical partition (LPAR) environment, this double-wide adapter must have both slots of
the adapter assigned to the same logical partition. When implementing dynamic LPAR (DLPAR), both
slots of the adapter must be managed together.
Installing the adapter in a cassette
To install this adapter in a cassette, first remove the adapter handle (B), and the two plastic covers from
the SCSI jumper cable (A), as shown in the following figure.
Figure 77. Preparing the adapter for placement in a cassette
Power LED
For a double-wide adapter, there is only one power LED visible for both slots.
Concurrent maintenance procedure
Concurrent maintenance of this adapter is not supported through the Hardware Management Console
(HMC). Concurrent maintenance must be inititated from the Hardware Service Manager (HSM) of the
system or owning partition. The HSM automatically turns off the power of both PCI slots when either
slot is selected.
Important:
v Both PCI slots must be powered off when installing or removing this adapter with the system power
on.
Managing PCI adapters
253
v If this adapter is the load source IOA, or under the load source IOP, or any other storage IOA/IOP
with critical DASD attached for the system, the system may temporarily hang until this procedure is
completed (the slots are powered back on and the adapter has become operational again). In this
configuration, this concurrent maintenance procedure must be done by a qualified service provider. At
step 12, the HSM directs you to use the control panel functions 68 and 69 to turn off the power or turn
on the power on the domain.
Follow this procedure:
1. Start an operating system session for the system or logical partition that contains the adapter, and
sign on to the system or logical partition.
2. Type strsst on the command line of the Main Menu and then press Enter.
3. Type your service tools user ID and service tools password on the System Service Tools (SST) Sign
On display and press Enter.
4. Select Start a service tool from the System Service Tools (SST) display and press Enter.
5. Select Hardware service manager from the Start a Service Tools display and press Enter.
6. Select Logical hardware resources (system, frames, cards) from the Hardware Service Manager
display and press Enter.
7. Select System bus resources and press Enter. The display changes to the Logical Hardware
Resources on System Bus display.
8. Page down and locate Combined Function IOP that controls the IOA to be serviced.
9. Enter 9 in the Opt field for the Combined Function IOP to be serviced.
10. Locate the Storage IOA resource for the adapter to be serviced and enter 8 in the Opt field for that
resource.
11. Enter 3 for Concurrent maintenance in the Opt field for the Storage IOA resource to be serviced.
The display changes to the Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance display.
12. Press F9 to turn off the power to the domain.
13. Press Enter to confirm start turning off the power. The display changes to the Hardware Resource
Concurrent Maintenance Status display, which shows the status of the turned off power.
When the power is turned off completely, the display returns to the Hardware Resource Concurrent
Maintenance display. The display shows that the Power Status is turned off for Storage IOA. Leave
this display on the HSM while you remove and replace the adapter.
14. Check the slot power LED state for the slot in which the adapter resides to verify that power of the
adapter is turned off.
For a double-wide adapter, there is only one power LED visible for both slots.
15. Remove and replace the adapter. Removal and replacement procedures are covered in the
customer-installable features publication.
16. After the replacement is complete, return to the Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance display
on the HSM.
17. If you were previously instructed to use operator panel function 69 to power on the adapter, do so
now from either the system operator panel or from the HMC operator panel functions for the
owning partition. Then go to step 22, otherwise continue with next step.
18. Enter F10 to turn on the power to the adapter.
19. Press Enter to begin turning on the power.
20. If the Work with Controlling Resource display appears, enter 7 in the Opt field for the Combined
function IOP to assign the IOA to.
The Hardware Resource Concurrent Maintenance Status display shows the status of the power
turned on.
21. When the power is turned on completely, the display returns to the Hardware Resource Concurrent
Maintenance display. The display shows that the Power Status is turned on for the Storage IOA.
22. Check the LED status to verify that the adapter power is turned on.

Learn about the specifications for the ARTIC960Hx 4-Port Selectable PCI Adapter.
Overview
The ARTIC960Hx 4-Port Selectable PCI Adapter consists of an ARTIC960Hx Base PCI Adapter, an
ARTIC960 4-Port Selectable PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC), and an 8MB DRAM Memory card.
The Base PCI Adapter provides high-function control of I/O operations and serves to off-load
input/output tasks from the system microprocessor. It has a memory connector that supports 8 MB of
extended-data output (EDO) dynamic random-access memory (DRAM).
The 4-Port Selectable PMC connects to the Base PCI adapter by two 64-pin connectors. The PMC card
provides a high-function, application-specific interface that expands the capability of the base adapter.
The Base PCI Adapter and the attached 4-Port Selectable PMC occupy a single 32-bit expansion slot.
In addition to this topic, you can learn more about the adapter in the ARTIC960Hx 4-Port Selectable PCI

PCIe2 3.1GB Cache Integrated SAS RAID Adapter (CCIN 57C3)
included in Feature 58/88
Learn about the specifications and operating system requirements for the PCIe2 3.1GB Cache Integrated
SAS RAID adapter that is integrated with the EXP30 Ultra SSD I/O Drawer (feature code 58/88 PCIe
storage enclosure). The adapter reports as PCIe2 3.1GB Cache RAID SAS Enclosure 6Gb x8.
Overview
The PCIe2 3.1GB Cache Integrated SAS RAID adapter is an internal PCI Express generation-2 (PCIe2),
serial-attached SCSI (SAS) Random Array of Independent Disks (RAID) adapter integrated into the 58/88
PCIe storage enclosure. The adapter contains the SAS RAID controller and SAS Expander. The internal
adapter with the SAS RAID controller and SAS Expander is called as the enclosure RAID module (ERM).
This adapter supports the attachment of the 1.8 inch SAS solid-state drive feature ES02. The 58/88 PCIe
storage enclosure connects to the server via a PCIe x8 cable from each ERM PCIe x8 cable port. The PCIe
cable is connected to the GX ++ PCIe2 adapter in the server.
The FC 58/88 PCIe storage enclosure is always supplied with two PCIe2 3.1GB Cache Integrated SAS
RAID adapters preinstalled. These must be used in a high availability, multi-initiator RAID configuration
with the two adapters in dual-controller mode (Dual Storage IOA configuration).
Each of the two high performance, integrated SAS controllers physically provide 3.1 GB write-cache.
Working as a pair, they provide additional performance and adapter redundancy with mirrored
write-cache data and mirrored RAID parity footprints between the adapters. The cache contents are
designed to be protected by integrated flash memory with capacitors in case of power failure without the
need for batteries as were used with previous large cache adapters. If the pairing is broken, write-cache is
disabled after existing cache content is written out to the drives and performance may be degraded until
the controller pairing is reestablished.
Both controllers can support a minimum of 6 SSD and a maximum of 30 SSD. The SAS SSD bays are
always physically one set of drives, even though there may be multiple RAID arrays in this one set. With
two or more RAID arrays, each RAID array can be optimized to either of the integrated SAS controllers
to take advantage of Active/Active performance improvements via the R/W bandwidth of both adapters.
The location codes for the PCIe connector on the PCIe2 3.1GB Cache Integrated SAS RAID adapter are:
1. Internal adapter ERM 1: C1-T3
2. Internal adapter ERM 2: C2-T3
See Figure 80 on page 261 for the location codes for the PCIe2 3.1GB Cache Integrated SAS RAID adapter
in the 58/88 PCIe storage enclosure.

Managing PCI adapters for the 02E/4B, 02E/4C, 05F/6B, or 05E/6C
Figure 80. Location codes of the PCIe2 3.1GB Cache Integrated SAS RAID adapter
Servers running the AIX or Linux operating system support both adapters RAID controllers owned by
the same or different partitions. The controllers provide RAID 0, RAID 5, RAID 6, and RAID 10
configurations for servers running the AIX or Linux operating system, and supported by VIOS. AIX,
Linux, or VIOS also provide mirroring (logical volume manager (LVM)) capabilities.
For the 58/88 PCIe storage enclosure, these adapters are not maintained concurrently, although many
other components in the 58/88 PCIe storage enclosure can be maintained concurrently.
See figure that shows the ERM.
Note: Connectors T1 and T2 are not used on FC 58/88 PCIe storage enclosure.

Replacing a battery pack
Follow these guidelines before replacing your battery pack.
Note: When replacing the cache battery pack, the battery must be disconnected for at least 60 seconds
before connecting the new battery. This duration is the minimum amount of time needed for the card to
recognize that the battery has been replaced.
Attention: To prevent data loss, if the cache battery pack is not already in the error state, follow the
steps described in Forcing a rechargeable battery error before proceeding. If the cache data present LED is
flashing, do not replace the cache battery pack or data will be lost. See the feature descriptions and the
figures in the following sections to determine if your adapter has a cache data present LED and the
location of the LED.
Attention: Static electricity can damage this device and your system unit. To avoid damage, keep this
device in its antistatic protective bag until you are ready to install it. To reduce the possibility of
electrostatic discharge, read the following precautions:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around you.
v Handle the device carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
v Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
v Do not leave the device where others can handle and possibly damage the device.
v While the device is still in its antistatic package, touch it to an unpainted metal part of the system unit
for at least 2 seconds. (This duration drains static electricity from the package and from your body.)
v Remove the device from its package and install it directly into your system unit without setting it
down. If it is necessary to set the device down, place it on its static-protective package. (If your device
is a controller, place it component-side up.) Do not place the device on your system unit cover or on a
metal table.
v Take additional care when handling devices during cold weather, as heating reduces indoor humidity
and increases static electricity.
