Introduction
HP Installation Specialist Responsibilities
CAUTION
Do not leave side or top covers off the server for extended periods of time while troubleshooting
the server. Overall reliability of the server will be compromised if covers are not replaced after
servicing.
Connecting and Testing AC Power
After the equipment has been unpacked and moved into position, it must be connected to the site AC power
supply.
NOTE
Before applying AC power to the system, check that the site supply voltage is 200-240 volts AC,
50-60 Hz. This should be done for every AC receptacle that will supply power to the system(s)
since one receptacle could be wired correctly while the remaining receptacles could be wired
incorrectly.
Verify the following items before applying power to the system:
•
AC power receptacles are wired correctly at the site
•
AC voltage levels are adequate
Domestic and international systems are shipped with a 4.5 meter AC power cord terminating with an AC
power plug. The matching AC power receptacles must be prewired into the site AC power supply for each
cabinet.
After installing each cabinet(s), the HP Installation Specialist must verify AC wiring, apply AC power to the
system, and check input AC voltages. Refer to Chapter 4, “AC Power” for procedures on connecting AC power
to the system and measuring the AC voltage.
Completing the Installation Report

Inspecting the hp rp8400 Server Cabinet
Hewlett-Packard shipping containers are designed to protect their contents under normal shipping
conditions. After the equipment arrives at the customer site, carefully inspect each carton for signs of
shipping damage. A tilt indicator is installed on each carton shipped. The beads in the indicator will roll to
the upper position if the container has been tilted to an angle that could cause equipment damage. The tilt
indicator itself will have two windows and each window under normal conditions will show four beads
present. If a carton has been mishandled, accidentally dropped, or knocked against something, the tilt
indicator will indicate missing beads. If damage is found, document the damage with photographs and contact
the transport carrier immediately.
Examine the server cabinet for visible shipping damage. After unpacking the cabinet, check for damage that
may have been obscured by the shipping container. If damage is found after visual inspection, document the
damage with photographs and contact the transport carrier immediately.
If the equipment has any damage, a damage claim form must be obtained by the customer from the shipping
representative. The customer should complete the form and return it to the shipping representative.
NOTE
The factory provides an installation warranty that is effective from the time the customer
receives the shipment until Field Services turns the system over to the customer.
Upon inspection of a received system and/or during installation of the system, if any parts or
accessories are missing or defective, they will be replaced directly from the factory via a
priority process. To request replacement parts, the HP Installation Specialist must contact the
local Order Fulfillment group which will coordinate the replacement with the factory.

AC Power Connections
This section provides a brief overview of concerns to be aware of when attaching the site AC power to the
server cabinet. See the Site Preparation Guide for the hp rp8400 Server Series for a more detailed
explanation.
Hewlett-Packard personnel should not be directly involved in the selection of material, installation, or
connection of site AC power. In all cases, this work should be done in strict adherence to local codes by the
customer, either directly through their personnel, or via licensed contractors. Hewlett-Packard personnel
should not be involved with the selection of suitable materials, which must conform to local code (size,
temperature rating, length, etc.).
Before beginning receptacle installation, consider the following:
•
Observe all local electrical codes and practices.
•
Ensure that the AC power receptacle is wired to the site AC power via conductors routed through flexible
metal conduit or via approved AC power cable before cabinet installation.
•
Ensure that AC power cable is properly sized, service rated, temperature rated, and complies with all
applicable codes and regulations.
•
Ensure that the conductors in conduit are properly sized, service rated, temperature rated, color coded,

Wiring Check
WARNING
LETHAL VOLTAGE HAZARD—Hazardous voltages may be present in the cabinet if
incorrectly wired into the site AC power supply. Always verify correct wiring and
cabinet grounding before applying AC power to the cabinet. Failure to do so may
result in injury to personnel and damage to equipment.
Always verify that the AC power cable is correctly wired into the AC power supply before applying AC power
to the cabinet.
Verify the following items before applying AC power to the cabinet:
•
Cabinet safety ground connects to the site electrical system ground and is not left floating or connected to
a phase.
NOTE
The following identifies the minimum acceptable and the preferred methods of grounding. Use
the preferred method whenever possible.
•
Preferred method of grounding is to connect the green power cord safety ground to the site ground point.
This is accomplished through the power cord receptacle wiring. When required, cabinets may be grounded
by using grounding straps connected to a site grounding mesh or ground grid.
•
As a minimum, the green power cord safety ground must be connected to the site ground point.
If the cabinet ground is left floating, anyone coming into contact with the cabinet could receive a lethal shock
if a component should fail causing leakage or direct connection of phase energy to the cabinet.
If the cabinet ground connects to a phase, the cabinet will be over 200 volts above ground, presenting a lethal
shock hazard to anyone coming into contact with the cabinet when site AC power is applied to the cabinet.
Chapter 4
51
AC Power
Wiring and Voltage Checks
Verify the connection of the cabinet ground to site AC power ground through a continuity check between the
cabinet and site AC power supply ground. The continuity check should be performed while the site AC power
supply circuit breakers serving the cabinet and the cabinet circuit breaker are all set to OFF.
Use the following procedure to verify that the cabinet ground connects to the site AC power supply ground:
Step 1. Ensure that the site AC power supply circuit breakers serving the cabinet are set to OFF.
Step 2. Ensure that the cabinet main circuit breaker is set to OFF.
Step 3. Touch one test probe to the site AC power supply ground source.
Step 4. Touch the other test probe to an unpainted metal surface of the cabinet.
NOTE
If the digital multimeter (DMM) leads will not reach from the junction box to the
cabinet, use a piece of wire connected to the ground terminal of the junction box.
Step 5. Check for continuity indication of less than 0.1 ohm.
•
If continuity is not found, check to ensure that the DMM test leads are making good contact to
unpainted metal and try again.
•
If continuity is still not found, disconnect the cabinet site AC power immediately and notify the
customer of the probability of incorrectly wired AC power to the cabinet.
•
If continuity is good, and connection of the cabinet to site AC power supply ground (and not
floating or connected to a phase) is verified, then voltage checks may be performed.
Voltage Check
This section provides voltage check information for use on the customer site. The emphasis will focus on
measuring the voltages at the power cord plug end specified as an IEC 320 C19 type plug. This is the end that
plugs directly into the back of the server cabinet.
NOTE

hp rp8400 Server Series AC Input Power
The server can receive AC input from two different AC power sources. If two separate power sources are
available, the server can be plugged into the separate power sources increasing system reliability should one
power source fail. The main power source is defined to be A0 and A1. The redundant power source is defined
to be B0 and B1. See Figure 5-1 for the AC power input label scheme.
NOTE
Figure 5-1
When it is desired to run the server with a single power source, either A0 and A1 or B0 and B1
should be used. All other combinations are not supported. Either combination requires two
power cords.
AC Power Input Labeling
The power distribution for the Bulk Power Supplies is provided as follows:
•
A0 input provides power to BPS 0, BPS 1, and BPS 2
•
A1 input provides power to BPS 3, BPS 4, and BPS 5
•
B0 input provides power to BPS 0, BPS 1, and BPS 2
•
B1 input provides power to BPS 3, BPS 4, and BPS 5

System Installation
hp rp8400 Server Series AC Input Power
See Figure 5-2 for the graphical representation of how the input power cords supply power to each BPS.
Figure 5-2
CAUTION
Distribution of Input Power for Each Bulk Power Supply
Do not route data and power cables together in the same cable management arm.
Do not route data and power cables in parallel paths in close proximity to each other. The
suggested minimum distance that the data and power cables should be apart is 3 inches (7.62
centimeters).
The power cord has current flowing through it, which creates a magnetic field. The potential to
induce electromagnetic interference in the data cables exist thereby causing data corruption.
There can be a total of six Bulk Power Supplies (BPS) installed in the server.
•
A minimum of two BPS are required to bring up a single cell board installed in the server.
•
N+1 capability is provided in the server when the number of BPS installed exceeds the number of cell
boards installed by one BPS.
•
An additional BPS is required for each additional cell board installed in the server. For the case where two
cell boards are installed, there would be a total of four BPS needed to support the two cell board
configuration while providing N+1 functionality.
NOTE
62
Label the AC power cords during the installation. One suggestion is to use tie wraps that have
the flag molded into the tie wrap. The flag can be labeled using the appropriate two characters
to represent the particular AC power input (e.g. A0). Another suggestion would be to use color
coded plastic bands. One color to represent the first pair A0/A1 and another color to represent
the second pair B0/B1 (provided a second power source is available at the customer site).

System Installation
hp rp8400 Server Series AC Input Power
Applying Power to the hp rp8400 Server Series
Initial observations can be made as to the functionality of the server before attaching any LAN or serial
cables, the system console or any peripherals to the server. When an active AC power source is first applied to
the server, the following observations can be made at three different intervals or points in time.
INTERVAL ONE
The power has just been applied to the server but the front panel On/Off switch is not On. The front air
intake fans will be flashing a dim red color, the bulk power supplies will be flashing amber and there will be
an amber light present on the hard disk drive(s).
INTERVAL TWO
After the power has been plugged into the server for about 30 seconds, the standby power turns on and the
front intake fan LED indicators turn solid green. The Bulk Power Supplies (BPS) will be flashing green and
the amber light is still present on the hard disk drive(s). The front panel On/Off switch is not On at this
point. House keeping power is up at this point.
INTERVAL THREE
With the On/Off switch on the front of the server is set to On, the intake fans spin up and become noticeably
audible while the LED indicator remains solid green. The BPS LED indicator turns a solid green and the PCI
backplane power supply LED indicators turn solid green. The hard disk drive LED will turn green briefly and
then the LED will turn off.

Configuring the Management Processor for use with a Web Console
The Web console is an embedded feature of the management processor (MP). The Web console allows access to
the server via the LAN port on the core I/O card. MP configuration must be done from an ASCII console.
NOTE
The MP has a separate LAN port from the system LAN port. It requires a separate LAN drop,
IP address, and networking information from that of the port used by HP-UX.
Before starting this procedure, the following information is required:
•
IP address for the MP LAN
•
Subnet mask
•
Gateway address
•

Adding Processors with Instant Capacity On Demand (iCOD)
Adding Processors with Instant Capacity On Demand (iCOD)
The Instant Capacity On Demand (iCOD) program provides access to additional CPU resources beyond the
amount that was purchased for the server. This provides the ability to activate additional CPU power for
unexpected growth and unexpected spikes in workloads such as Internet or E-intelligence.
Internally, iCOD systems physically have more CPUs, called iCOD CPUs, than the number of CPUs actually
purchased. These iCOD CPUs reside in the purchased system, but they belong to Hewlett-Packard (HP) and
therefore are HP assets. A nominal "Right-To-Access Fee" is paid to HP for each iCOD processor in the
system. At any time, any number of iCOD CPUs can be "activated." Activating an iCOD CPU automatically
and instantaneously transforms the iCOD CPU into an instantly ordered and fulfilled CPU Upgrade that
requires payment. After the iCOD CPU is activated and paid for, it is no longer an iCOD CPU, but is now an
ordered and delivered CPU Upgrade for the system.
Due to the changing of this product, the most current information on installing, configuring and
troubleshooting iCOD can be found at http://docs.hp.com

B Accessing the MP Using a Modem
A modem may be used to access the Management Processor (MP) remotely. A modem is often used in
conjunction with a paging device to alert a remote monitor about the condition of the SPU. As with the Local
RS-232 connection, only one window can be viewed on the display device. When enabled, it provides
direct access to the MP and to any partition.
Appendix B
89
Accessing the MP Using a Modem
To connect the serial display device to the MP using a modem:
1. At the side of the SPU cabinet, connect one end of a modem cable to the Remote RS-232 port on the Core
I/O card.
Figure B-1
Remote Connection
2. Connect the other end of the RS-232 cable to the modem.
3. Connect a dedicated phone (analog) line to the modem.
4. Set modem configuration as specified for remote support.
90
Appendix B
Accessing the MP Using a Modem
To modify the modem configuration to configure remote login, enter ca (Configure Asynchronous and Modem
Parameters) at the MP command prompt (MP:CM>) and follow the instruction on the screen.
Figure B-2
The ca Command Screen
MP> cm
Enter HE to get a list of available commands
MP:CM> ca
This command allows modification of the asychronous parameters.
WARNING: Changing the asynchronous parameters requires reboot of the MP
for proper local operation.
Do you want to modify the local rs232 port parameters? (Y/[N])
Do you want to modify the modem parameters? (Y/[N])

Verifying Modem Communications
Verifying Modem Communications
Verify the modem communications using the following procedure:
1. If not already obtained, get the modem phone number from the customer.
2. Contact the testing organization. This could be the Response Center or the WWSIT team.
3. Provide the organization with the phone number and parameters set using the MP ca command.
4. Request confirmation of the communication link, or check the modem light for activity.
