Preface
Precautions
Follow the procedures listed below to ensure safe handling of components and to
prevent harm to yourself and the NetServer.
WARNING
The HP NetServer LH 3r weighs up to 160 pounds (73 kg.)
when fully loaded. If you are removing the LH 3r from the
rack, remove the power supplies and hard disk drives before
doing so. Follow all local regulations when lifting the
NetServer.
To prevent the rack enclosure from tipping over,
•
•
•
Extend the anti-tip foot on the rack
Verify that the leveling feet on the rack are lowered
Do not extend more than one piece of equipment at once
Before removing the cover, always disconnect the power cord
and unplug telephone cables. Disconnect the power cord to
avoid exposure to high energy levels that may cause burns
when parts are short-circuited by metal objects, such as tools
or jewelry. Disconnect telephone cables to avoid exposure to
shock hazard from telephone ringing devices.
Note that the power switch does not turn off the standby
power. Disconnect the power cord to turn off standby power.
If the backlight on the LCD display is on, standby power is
still on.
CAUTION
Never operate this NetServer without first installing all covers
and the front bezel. Operating the system without all covers in
place reduces critical cooling airflow over some components,
such as hard disk drives and processor modules. Operating the
system without all covers in place may result in failure of these
components.
Wear a wrist strap and use a static-dissipating work surface
connected to the chassis at all times to prevent possible static
electricity damage to the NetServer components.

1 Introduction
Installation Overview
This guide describes the procedures for installing new hardware and software in
your LH 4/LH 4r NetServer. The hardware update takes 10 or 15 minutes. The
firmware update can take up to an hour, not including time taken by backing up
and restoring your hard disk drives, or by reinstalling the NOS or applications.
During the update procedure, you will see progress screens that indicate the action
underway.
During the software upgrade, you will:
• update system information
• reconfigure options like interrupt management and NetRAID details
• reinstall the NOS if necessary
NOTE
Before attempting the upgrade procedure, you should be
familiar with the current and default NetRAID configurations
and with the BIOS options specified in the Setup utility. For
further information, refer to these topics on the HP NetServer
Online Documentation CD-ROM:
HP NetRAID Installation and Configuration Guide
HP NetRAID User Guide
Setup Utility (in LH 4/LH 4r Configuration section)
CAUTION
The software update eliminates user-definable BIOS options
and the NetRAID configuration details. You must save these
details before you perform the software upgrade if you want to
restore these settings afterward.
5
Chapter 1
CAUTION
Introduction
After the system information update, your NetServer will
revert to the default NetRAID settings. You must restore your
NetRAID configuration from your worksheets or from notes
before you can access the NetRAID arrays. If you do not save
the NetRAID configuration details before performing the
system information update, your data may be unrecoverable.
Briefly, the conversion takes several steps:
1. Back up the contents of your hard disks - both the system disk(s) and any
RAID arrays.
2. Save the current system software configuration with the LH 3/LH 3r
HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM.
3. Gather the documentation, tools, hardware, and software needed to perform
the conversion.
4. Perform the first part of the software upgrade, backing up data.
5. If you are upgrading an LH 3r, extend it from the rack. Be sure to extend
the anti-tip foot, or use the anti-tip feature, before you extend the NetServer
from the rack.
6. Remove cover 2, the cover protecting the top of the CPU baseboard, and
cover 3, the cover shielding the components on the CPU baseboard side of
the LH 3.
7. Remove the LH 3 CPU baseboard.
8. Install the power supply upgrade kit, or additional power supplies, if
necessary.
9. Remove the CPU card guide and air baffle used with the old CPU
baseboard.
10. Install memory and processors in the LH 4 CPU baseboard.
11. Install the chassis reinforcement bars.
12. Install the LH 4 CPU baseboard in the chassis.
13. Replace the covers.
14. Perform the second part of the software update from the HP NetServer
Navigator CD-ROM and LH4UPD diskette.
6
Chapter 1
Introduction
15. Reconfigure the system with the Setup and NetRAID utilities, using the
configuration details you saved in step 2.
16. Verify that the system is restored to its operating configuration.
NOTE
This procedure assumes that you are not performing other
procedures, such as installing new PCI cards, tape drives, or
other hardware, or performing operating system upgrades, at
this time. You can do these operations while performing the LH
3 to LH 4 upgrade, but minimizing changes makes
troubleshooting much easier if problems or incompatibilities
arise during the upgrade process.

Introduction
Saving the Current Operating Environment
Before you start the upgrade, follow these instructions to preserve the current
operating environment.
CAUTION
You must back up all disks on your system - the disk
containing the NOS and any RAID arrays. Failure to perform
this step leaves you vulnerable to potential loss of data.
1. Back up all hard disks - both the hard disk containing the NOS, and any
RAID arrays, using the backup utilities on your NOS. You will perform a
restore later to replace this data.
2. You must write down all system configuration details from the Setup,
Remote Management, and NetRAID utilities, as you will have to
reconfigure them after the system software update. For a discussion of
NetRAID implementation and usage details, refer to the HP NetRAID
Installation and Configuration Guide and HP NetRAID User Guide
manuals on the HP NetServer Online Documentation CD-ROM.
For example, note the following information:

5. From the "More NetServer Utilities" option in the Main Menu, view the
Event Log Report Utility. If there are problems with the system,
troubleshoot these before continuing with the upgrade. Refer to the HP
NetServer LH 3/LH 3r User Guide and the HP NetServer Online
Documentation CD-ROM.
Preparing for Hardware Upgrade
Gather the tools and the setup information you need before beginning the
conversion. Locate the HP NetServer where there will be sufficient space to
remove the covers. Reserve bench space at a comforTable level so you can add
processors, VRMs, and memory easily.
Follow these steps:
1. Shut down the network operating system.
2. Turn off the NetServer and display.
3. Disconnect all telephone cables and power cords.
4. Disconnect all cables attached to the system board connectors at the rear of
the chassis.

Introduction
Upgrading the Rack (LH 3r) Configuration
You can upgrade the LH 3r rack configuration without removing it from the rack,
but you may find it easier to reinstall the CPU baseboard and install the chassis
reinforcement bars when the LH 3r is removed from the rack and sitting on a
workbench. When in the rack, the chassis reinforcement bars mount on the bottom
of the LH 3r. If you do decide to remove it from the rack to perform the upgrade,
refer to the documentation below.
CAUTION
Do not pull the LH 3r forward in the rack without extending
the anti-tip foot. If the anti-tip foot is not extended, the rack
assembly can tip over and injure you and damage the
NetServer or rack.
For HP Racks
Refer to the HP NetServer LH 3/LH 3r User Guide. For cabling instructions, refer
to the documentation that came with the rack, and to the Rack Cabling Reference
for the HP NetServer LH 4.
For Non-HP (Compaq) Racks
Refer to the HP NetServer LH 3r Installation Guide for Compaq® 4000/7000
Racks. For cabling instructions, refer to the documentation that came with the
rack, and to the Rack Cabling Reference for the HP NetServer LH 4.

WARNING
Do not use memory or VRMs from the LH 3/LH 3r CPU
baseboard with the LH 4/LH 4r CPU baseboard. This may
result in damage to components and put data integrity at risk.
Upgrading the HP NetServer LH 3/LH 3r to an HP NetServer LH 4/LH 4r requires
several steps, but there are few differences between the two NetServers.
Remove any packing materials and position the following components where you
can reach them from your work position.
CPU Baseboard Components
The LH 3/LH 3r has a CPU baseboard that accepts two Intel Pentium II™ Xeon
processors, each with an associated Pentium II Voltage Regulator Module (VRM).
The LH 4/LH 4r has a new CPU baseboard that accepts up to four Intel Pentium II
Xeon processors and six new VRMs designed especially for the Intel Pentium II
Xeon processors.
Figure 3-1 shows the CPU baseboard as it looks after unpacking.

Processor and VRM Configurations
The HP NetServer’s CPU baseboard has four processor slots, labeled Processor 1
through Processor 4. It also has six voltage regulator module slots, labeled VRM
1/2, VRM 3/4, VRM 1, VRM 2, VRM 3, and VRM 4. VRM 1/2 and VRM 3/4
provide regulated power for the cache memory on the processors, and the other
four VRMs supply power to the processors themselves. Figure 3-1 shows these
slots on the CPU baseboard.
Add processors in ascending slot order. You must also add additional voltage
regulator modules (VRMs) as you add processors, again in ascending slot order.
There will always be VRMs in slots VRM 1/2 , VRM 3/4, VRM 1, and VRM 2, so
a VRM is added to each corresponding slot as you install a new processor.
Refer to Table 3-1 to determine which VRMs must be installed for each processor.

10. Replace the boards in the memory cage. Lower the ejection levers to lock
the board into place in the cage.
11. Close the cover of the memory cage.
Additional Processor, VRM, and Memory Configurations
The LH 4/LH 4r CPU baseboard is shipped with two processors, two terminators,
and four VRMs. If you are installing additional processors at this time, refer to the
processor upgrade kit documentation and install them, and install the new VRMs
as well.
The LH 4/LH 4r CPU baseboard contains two 64 MB DIMM modules. If you are
installing additional memory at this time, refer to the memory upgrade kit
documentation and install it with the other DIMMs.
Installing the Chassis Reinforcement Bars
The chassis reinforcement bars are two metal bars that help hold the CPU
baseboard in place in the LH 4/LH 4r chassis. Since the CPU baseboard fits into to
small slots on the lower chassis reinforcement bar, you need to install these bars
before installing the CPU baseboard.
Insert the chassis reinforcement bars next to the CPU baseboard, as shown in
Figure 3-8. There are four Torx thumbscrews that secure the two bars to the
chassis, and two Torx thumbscrews that connect the CPU baseboard to the top
chassis reinforcement bar.
NOTE
22
If you are installing the chassis reinforcement bars while the
LH 4r is in the rack, you must install them from underneath.

Installing LH 4 Components
Installing the CPU Baseboard in the Chassis
The LH 4 CPU baseboard fits into the chassis snugly. Observe these precautions:
• Check to make sure that you have removed the card guide and air baffle for
the LH 3 CPU baseboard. If it is still installed, it will prevent the LH 4
board from seating properly. See "Removing the CPU Baseboard Guide
and Air Baffle" earlier in this manual, and refer to Figure 2-2.
• Check to see that the covers for the processor cage and memory cage are
screwed on, and that the VRMs are seated properly.
• The edge of the CPU baseboard that faces the rear of the LH 4 has a thin
metal liner that protects against radio frequency interference. This material
may snag on the chassis edge and crumple. If you have problems seating
the board, check to see if the metal liner is catching on the chassis.
1.
Use two people to lift the CPU baseboard, one holding each end. One
person can do it, but it’s easier with a person on each end.
2.
Raise the ejection levers into a vertical position, as shown in Figure 3-8.
Slide the CPU baseboard into place. In the LH 4 (pedestal) configuration,
lower it from the top of the LH 4. In the LH 4r (rack) configuration, slide
it in gently from the side.
CAUTION
24
The side of the CPU baseboard facing the front of the LH 4
fits into the long black guide slot mounted to the chassis. The
side of the CPU baseboard facing the rear of the LH 4 fits into
two slots that frame the connectors on the rear edge of the
CPU baseboard. Note the metal liner around the edge of the
CPU baseboard and be careful not to snag it on the chassis.
See Figure 3-9.

3. As the CPU baseboard lowers into place, raise the levers into a vertical
position. When the CPU baseboard seats in its slot, push the levers flat to
lock the CPU baseboard into position.
4. Attach the two Torx thumbscrews to secure the CPU baseboard to the
chassis, as shown in Figure 3-9.
5. Insert the new technical reference card in the sleeve on the inside of the
NetServer cover, then replace the covers on the NetServer.
Installing a Redundant Power Supply
The LH 3/LH 3r runs on two power supply modules, and can accept a third to
assure power continuity if a single power supply fails. The LH 4/LH 4r needs three
power supply modules and can accept a fourth to assure power continuity if a
single power supply fails.
If your LH 3/LH 3r does not already have a second power supply cage and
redundant power supply, install the Power Supply Upgrade Kit. If you require
power supply redundancy, order a fourth power supply module. To install the
power supply hardware, refer to the instructions supplied with the kits.
Installing a Redundant Fan
The Power Supply Upgrade Kit contains an extra fan to provide extra cooling and
redundancy for power supply cooling. If you install the power supply upgrade,
install the redundant fan according to the installation directions.
Installing the LH 4r in the Rack
If you removed the LH 3r to upgrade it, refer to the documentation listed below to
install the LH 4r in the rack.
For HP Racks
Refer to the HP NetServer LH 3/LH 3r User Guide. For cabling instructions, refer
to the documentation that came with the rack, and to the Rack Cabling Reference
for the HP NetServer LH 3.

Installing LH 4 Components
Finishing the Hardware Upgrade
As the last step in the LH 3/LH 3r to LH 4/LH 4r upgrade, attach the new
nameplate to the top of the front surface of the front bezel, as follows:
1. Orient the nameplate so that it can be read correctly when attached.
2. Secure the nameplate to the front bezel, as follows:
◊
For the LH 4, pry off the LH 3 nameplate in the upper left corner, then
snap the LH 4 nameplate into place.
◊
For LH 4r with the HP rack front bezel, insert the tab at one end of the
nameplate into the slot in the bezel, bend the nameplate slightly, and
simultaneously insert the snaps on the back of the nameplate and the tab
at the other end of the nameplate.
◊
For the LH 4r with the Compaq rack front bezel, insert the snap at one
end of the nameplate, and then insert the other snaps successively.
3. Attach the label reading "intel inside pentium II xeon" to a convenient
location near a corner of the front bezel.

4 Updating Firmware
The HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM shipped with your upgrade kit contains
new firmware specifically for the LH 4/LH 4r. Update your system firmware now
as part of the upgrade procedure.
Update System Firmware
1. Run the HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM.
A. If "User Preferences" appears, select the appropriate language. Click to
select <BACK when you are through.
B. If the BIOS Mismatch screen appears, the system has recognized that
you installed a new CPU baseboard, and has detected a mismatch
between the firmware on the LH 4/LH 4r CPU baseboard and the
firmware in the LH 3/LH 3r. Click to select CONTINUE.
2. From the Navigator Main Menu, click to select "NetServer Utilities".
3. Click to select "More NetServer Utilities".
4. Click to select "BIOS Update Utilities". You will see a screen informing
you that selecting this option updates the BIOS. Click to select EXECUTE.
5. You will see a screen giving you a last chance to continue the update or
return to the Utilities Menu. Press 1 to continue the update.
6. You will see the BIOS Update Utility screen change as various parts of the
firmware are updated. This process takes 10 to 15 minutes.
7. When the process is complete, remove the HP NetServer Navigator
CD-ROM and reboot the NetServer.
8. Generate the "Integrated HP NetRAID Firmware Update -LH 4" diskette
from the Navigator diskette library:
A. From the Navigator Main Menu, move to NetServer Utilities and click
to select it.
B. Move to Diskette Library and click to select it. Click to switch to the
"Long List" format.
C. Move to the "Integrated HP NetRAID Firmware Update -LH 4" file

D. Insert a blank flexible diskette in the NetServer and click to select
EXECUTE. The NetServer copies the update file to the diskette. Label
the diskette "NetRAID Firmware Update".
E. Click <BACK to return to the NetServer Utilities screen.
9. Update the system name (on the LCD) and the Embedded RAID Firmware:
A. Remove the NetRAID Firmware Update diskette from the flexible
diskette drive and remove the HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM from
the CD-ROM drive.
B. Insert the LH4UPD diskette into the flexible diskette drive and press
RESET to reboot the NetServer. You will see a DOS screen.
C. From DOS, type LH4UPD.BAT <CR>. This runs the batch file that
updates the NetServer name on the LCD screen in the Control Panel.
D. When the name update is complete, remove the LH4UPD diskette and
insert the NetRAID Firmware Update diskette.
E. Type MFLASH.EXE<CR>. This runs the NetRAID firmware update.
NOTE
If you get an error message, make sure that the system BIOS
settings are set to the factory defaults (HP Embedded NetRAID
enabled, SCSI A enabled).
F. From the MFLASH.EXE screen, type Y to continue the upgrade.
G. You will get a screen listing the new and old firmware revision
numbers. Type Y when asked if you want to continue.
H. When the firmware upgrade is finished, remove the NetRAID Firmware

Chapter 4
Updating Firmware
CAUTION
This Embedded NetRAID update only updates the firmware
on the CPU baseboard. When you reboot the NOS after this
update, you will get an error message caused by conflicts
between the NetRAID information stored elsewhere in the
system and the new information saved in the CPU baseboard
firmware. Use the HP NetRAID Express Tools utility to
reconfigure your system, based on the configuration details
you documented before starting the upgrade.
10. Enter the Setup utility by pressing F2 at the screen prompt. Run "Clear
Config" to clear the SCSI Controller, Embedded RAID, and system
configuration.
NOTE
If you do not push F2 quickly enough, you may be immediately
routed to the HP NetRAID Express Tools utility to remedy the
problem noted in the above CAUTION. Perform the Embedded
RAID reconfiguration, then proceed to the Setup
reconfiguration.
11. Reconfigure Embedded RAID and Setup according to the configuration
you saved earlier. You should not need to reinitialize the hard disks.
12. Reboot the system and:
A. Reconfigure Integrated Remote Assistant
B. Clear the System Event Log
Update the Operating System
NOTE
If you are upgrading from a single-processor to multi-processor
machine, you may have to reinstall the operating system. Please
consult with your operating system vendor.
WARNING
Navigator will prompt the user, "Would you like to use HP’s
automated mode of NOS Installation?" The default is "Yes." If
you choose "Yes," whatever was on the C: drive will be lost.
