•
NIC Modes and NIC Redundancy Settings, page 2-15
Connecting and Powering On the System (Standalone Mode)
This section describes how to power on the system, assign an IP address, and connect to server
management when using the server in standalone mode.
The server is shipped with these default settings:
•
The NIC mode is Dedicated.
With the Dedicated mode, the dedicated management port on the system I/O controller (SIOC) is
used to access the Cisco IMC. You must select a NIC redundancy and IP setting. If you want to use
a different port to access the Cisco IMC, you can connect to the server and change the NIC mode as
described in Step 1 of the following procedure.
•
The NIC redundancy is None.
•
DHCP is enabled.
•
IPv4 is enabled.
There are two methods for connecting to the system for initial setup:
•
Local setup—Use this procedure if you want to connect a keyboard and monitor to the system for
setup. This procedure requires a KVM cable (Cisco PID N20-BKVM). See Local Connection
Procedure, page 2-11.
•
Remote setup—Use this procedure if you want to perform setup through your dedicated
management LAN. See Remote Connection Procedure, page 2-12.
Note
To configure the system remotely, you must have a DHCP server on the same network as the
system. Your DHCP server must be preconfigured with the range of MAC addresses for this
server node. The MAC address is printed on a label on the rear of the server node. This server
node has a range of six MAC addresses assigned to the Cisco IMC. The MAC address printed
on the label is the beginning of the range of six contiguous MAC addresses.
Local Connection Procedure
Step 1
Attach a power cord to each power supply in your server, and then attach each power cord to a grounded
AC power outlet. See Power Specifications, page A-2 for power specifications.
Wait for approximately two minutes to let the server boot in standby power during the first bootup.
You can verify system power status by looking at the system Power Status LED on the front panel (see
Figure 1-1 on page 1-1). The system is in standby power mode when the LED is amber.
Step 2
Connect a KVM cable (Cisco PID N20-BKVM) to the KVM connector on the server node at the rear of
the system (see Figure 1-2 on page 1-2 for the connector location).
Step 3
Connect a USB keyboard and a VGA monitor to the KVM cable.

This server has the following NIC mode settings that you can choose from:
•
Dedicated—The dedicated management port on system I/O controller 1 (SIOC 1) is used to access
the Cisco IMC. You must select a NIC redundancy and IP setting. This is the factory-default setting.
•
Shared LOM—Not supported at this time.
•
Cisco Card—The ports on an installed network adapter card are used to access the Cisco IMC. You
must select a NIC redundancy and IP setting.
NIC Redundancy
This server has the following NIC redundancy settings that you can choose from:
– None—The Ethernet ports operate independently and do not fail over if there is a problem. This
setting can be used only with the Dedicated NIC mode.
– Active-standby—If an active Ethernet port fails, traffic fails over to a standby port.
– Active-active—All Ethernet ports are utilized simultaneously. This setting can be used only
with the Cisco Card NIC mode.
The active-active setting uses Mode 5 or Balance-TLB (adaptive transmit load balancing). This is
channel bonding that does not require any special switch support. The outgoing traffic is distributed
according to the current load (computed relative to the speed) on each slave. Incoming traffic is
received by the current slave. If the receiving slave fails, another slave takes over the MAC address
of the failed receiving slave.

Diagnostic LEDs in the Server Node
There are internal diagnostic LEDs on the edge of the server node board. These LEDs can be viewed
while the server node is removed from the chassis, up to 30 minutes after AC power is removed.
There are fault LEDs for each DIMM, each CPU, the RAID card, and each system I/O controller (SIOC).
To use these LEDs to identify a failed component:
Step 1
Shut down and remove the server node from the system as described in Removing the Server Node
Cover, page 3-12.
You do not have to remove the server node cover to view the LEDs on the edge of the board.
Step 2
Press and hold the server node unit identification button within 30 minutes of removing the server node
from the system.

Identifying a Faulty Internal Drive
The system has internal-drive fault LEDs on the right-front handle (see Figure 3-1). Use these LEDs to
get an indication of the location of a failing drive.
Step 1
Observe the internal-drive fault LEDs on the right-front handle.
•
The two columns of LEDs correspond to the two halves of the internal drive compartment (under
either the right- or left-side top cover).
•
The four numbered rows of LEDs correspond to the four horizontal rows of drive bays (14 drive bays
in each row).
See Figure 3-9 for an example. In this example, the amber LED indicates that the failing drive is in the
right half of the internal drive compartment, in row 3.
Step 2
Open the right- or left-side cover and look at the fault LEDs on the drive trays.

DIMM Performance Guidelines and Population Rules, page 3-29
•
DIMM Replacement Procedure, page 3-32
Caution
DIMMs and their sockets are fragile and must be handled with care to avoid damage during installation.
Caution
Cisco does not support third-party DIMMs. Using non-Cisco DIMMs in the system might result in
system problems or damage to the motherboard.
Note
To ensure the best system performance, it is important that you are familiar with memory performance
guidelines and population rules before you install or replace the memory.

DIMM Sockets
Figure 3-19 shows the DIMM sockets and how they are numbered on a server node board.
•
A server node has 16 DDR3 DIMM sockets (8 for each CPU).
•
Channels are labeled with letters as shown in Figure 3-19.
For example, channel A = DIMM sockets A1, A2.
•
Each channel has two DIMM sockets. The blue socket in a channel is always socket 1.

DIMM Population Rules
Observe the following guidelines when installing or replacing DIMMs:
•
For optimal performance, spread DIMMs evenly across both CPUs and all channels.
•
Populate the DIMM sockets of each CPU identically. Populate the blue DIMM 1 sockets first, then
the black DIMM 2 slots. For example, populate the DIMM slots in this order:
•
1.
A1, E1, B1, F1, C1, G1, D1, H1
2.
A2, E2, B2, F2, C2, G2, D2, H2
Observe the DIMM mixing rules shown in Table 3-5.

DIMM Type:

RDIMMs
Memory Mirroring Mode
When you enable memory mirroring mode, the memory subsystem simultaneously writes identical data
to two channels. If a memory read from one of the channels returns incorrect data due to an uncorrectable
memory error, the system automatically retrieves the data from the other channel. A transient or soft
error in one channel does not affect the mirrored data, and operation continues.
Memory mirroring reduces the amount of memory available to the operating system by 50 percent
because only one of the two populated channels provides data.
Lockstep Channel Mode
When you enable lockstep channel mode, each memory access is a 128-bit data access that spans four
channels.
Lockstep channel mode requires that all four memory channels on a CPU must be populated identically
with regards to size and organization. DIMM socket populations within a channel do not have to be
identical but the same DIMM slot location across all four channels must be populated the same.
For example, DIMMs in sockets A1, B1, C1, and D1 must be identical. DIMMs in sockets A2, B2, C2,
and D2 must be identical. However, the A1-B1-C1-D1 DIMMs do not have to be identical with the
A2-B2-C2-D2 DIMMs.

CPU Replacement Procedure
Caution
CPUs and their motherboard sockets are fragile and must be handled with care to avoid damaging pins
during installation. The CPUs must be installed with heatsinks and their thermal pads to ensure proper
cooling. Failure to install a CPU correctly might result in damage to the system.
Caution
The Pick-and-Place tools used in this procedure are required to prevent damage to the contact pins
between the motherboard and the CPU. Do not attempt this procedure without the required tools, which
are included with each CPU option kit. If you do not have the tool, you can order a spare (Cisco PID
UCS-CPU-EP-PNP).
To install or replace a CPU heatsink and CPU, follow these steps:
Step 1
Shut down and remove power from the entire system, as described in Shutting Down and Powering Off
the System, page 3-9.

Additional CPU-Related Parts To Order With RMA Replacement Server Nodes
When a return material authorization (RMA) of the server node or CPU is done on a system, there are
additional parts that might not be included with the CPU or motherboard spare bill of materials (BOM).
The TAC engineer might need to add the additional parts to the RMA to help ensure a successful
replacement.
•
Scenario 1—You are re-using the existing heatsinks:
– Heat sink cleaning kit (UCSX-HSCK=)
– Thermal grease kit for C3160 (UCS-CPU-GREASE3=)
– Intel CPU Pick-n-Place tool for EP CPUs (UCS-CPU-EP-PNP=)
•
Scenario 2—You are replacing the existing heatsinks:
– Heat sink (UCSB-HS-01-EP=)
– Heat sink cleaning kit (UCSX-HSCK=)
– Intel CPU Pick-n-Place tool for EP CPUs (UCS-CPU-EP-PNP=)
A CPU heatsink cleaning kit is good for up to four CPU and heatsink cleanings. The cleaning kit contains
two bottles of solution, one to clean the CPU and heatsink of old thermal interface material and the other
to prepare the surface of the heatsink.
It is important to clean the old thermal interface material off of the CPU prior to installing the heatsinks.
Therefore, when ordering new heatsinks it is still necessary to order the heatsink cleaning kit at a
minimum.

None. Card installs to mezzanine socket inside
the server node.
For instructions on installing a RAID controller card, see Replacing a RAID Controller Card Inside the
Server Node, page 3-39.
Supercap Power Module (RAID Backup Unit)
This server supports installation of one supercap power module (SCPM) backup unit. The unit mounts
directly to the Cisco modular RAID controller card inside the server node. The unit comes already
attached to the card and is not sold as a separate component.
The SCPM provides approximately 3 years of backup for the disk write-back cache DRAM in the case
of sudden power loss by offloading the cache to the NAND flash.

RAID Controller Considerations
Restoring RAID Configuration After Replacing a RAID Controller
Restoring RAID Configuration After Replacing a RAID Controller
When you replace a RAID controller, the RAID configuration that is stored in the controller is lost.
To restore your RAID configuration to your new RAID controller, follow these steps.
Step 1
Replace your RAID controller. See Replacing a RAID Controller Card Inside the Server Node,
page 3-39.
Step 2
If this was a full chassis swap, replace all drives into the drive bays, in the same order that they were
installed in the old chassis.
Step 3
Reboot the server and watch for the prompt to press F.
Step 4
Press F when you see the following onscreen prompt:
Foreign configuration(s) found on adapter.
Press any key to continue or �C’ load the configuration utility,
or �F’ to import foreign configuration(s) and continue.
Step 5
Press any key (other than C) to continue when you see the following onscreen prompt:
All of the disks from your previous configuration are gone. If this is
an unexpected message, then please power of your system and check your cables
to ensure all disks are present.
Press any key to continue, or �C’ to load the configuration utility.
Step 6
Watch the subsequent screens for confirmation that your RAID configuration was imported correctly:
•
If you see the following message, your configuration was successfully imported. The LSI virtual
drive is also listed among the storage devices.
N Virtual Drive(s) found on host adapter.
•
If you see the following message, your configuration was not imported. This problem can occur if
you do not press F quickly enough when prompted. In this case, reboot the server and try the import
operation again when you are prompted to press F.
0 Virtual Drive(s) found on host adapter.
For More Information
The LSI utilities have help documentation for more information about using the utilities.
For basic information about RAID and for using the utilities for the RAID controller cards, see the
Cisco UCS Servers RAID Guide.
