Chapter 2
Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your 1041M-T2/1041M-82 up
and running. Following these steps in the order given should enable you to have
the system operational within a minimum amount of time. This quick setup assumes
that your system has come to you with the processors and memory preinstalled. If
your system is not already fully integrated with a serverboard, processors, system
memory etc., please turn to the chapter or section noted in each step for details
on installing specific components.
2-2
Unpacking the System
You should inspect the box the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 was shipped in and note if
it was damaged in any way. If the server itself shows damage you should file a
damage claim with the carrier who delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold the 1041M-T2/1041M82. It should be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is well ventilated. Avoid
areas where heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields are generated. You
will also need it placed near a grounded power outlet. Be sure to read the Rack
and Server Precautions in the next section.
2-3
Preparing for Setup
The box the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 was shipped in should include two sets of rail
assemblies, two rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you will need to
install the system into the rack. Follow the steps in the order given to complete
the installation process in a minimum amount of time. Please read this section
in its entirety before you begin the installation procedure outlined in the sections
that follow.
2-1
AS1041M-T2/1041M-82 User's Manual
Choosing a Setup Location
- Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open the front
door completely (~25 inches).
- Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack to allow
for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.
- This product is for installation only in a Restricted Access Location (dedicated
equipment rooms, service closets and the like).
!
Warnings and Precautions!
!
Rack Precautions
- Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully extended to
the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
- In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
- In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
- Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component from the
rack.
- You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or more
simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
Server Precautions
- Review the electrical and general safety precautions in Chapter 4.
- Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you install the
rails.
- Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack first, and then
work up.
- Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the server from
power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your system operating in case of a
power failure.
- Allow the hot plug SATA/SCSI drives and power supply modules to cool before
touching them.
- Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on the servers closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
2-2
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Rack Mounting Considerations
Ambient Operating Temperature
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the ambient operating temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient temperature of the
room. Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an
environment compatible with the manufacturer’s maximum rated ambient temperature (Tmra).
Reduced Airflow
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that the amount of airflow required
for safe operation is not compromised.
Mechanical Loading
Equipment should be mounted into a rack so that a hazardous condition does not
arise due to uneven mechanical loading.
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the power
supply circuitry and the effect that any possible overloading of circuits might have
on overcurrent protection and power supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of
equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this concern.
Reliable Ground
A reliable ground must be maintained at all times. To ensure this, the rack itself
should be grounded. Particular attention should be given to power supply connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit (i.e. the use of power
strips, etc.).

2-4
Installing the System into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 into a rack
unit with the rack rails provided. If the system has already been mounted into a
rack, you can skip ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6. There are a variety of rack
units on the market, which may mean the assembly procedure will differ slightly.
You should also refer to the installation instructions that came with the rack unit
you are using.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
You should have received two rack rail assemblies in the rack mounting kit. Each
assembly consists of two sections: an inner fixed chassis rail that secures directly
to the server chassis and an outer fixed rack rail that secures directly to the rack
itself (see Figure 2-1). Two pairs of short brackets to be used on the front side of
the outer rails are also included.
Installing the Inner Rails
Both the left and right side inner rails have been pre-attached to the chassis.
Proceed to the next step. A
Figure 2-1. Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
(right side rail shown)
2-4
Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Outer Rails
Begin by measuring the distance from the front rail to the rear rail of the rack. Attach
a short bracket to the front side of the right outer rail and a long bracket to the rear
side of the right outer rail. Adjust both the short and long brackets to the proper
distance so that the rail can fit snugly into the rack. Secure the short bracket to the
front side of the outer rail with two M4 screws and the long bracket to the rear side
of the outer rail with three M4 screws. Repeat these steps for the left outer rail.
Locking Tabs
Both chassis rails have a locking tab, which serves two functions. The first is to
lock the server into place when installed and pushed fully into the rack, which is
its normal position. Secondly, these tabs also lock the server in place when fully
extended from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely out of
the rack when you pull it out for servicing.

Installing the Server into the Rack
You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack unit. The next
step is to install the server into the rack. Do this by lining up the rear of the chassis rails with the front of the rack rails. Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails,
keeping the pressure even on both sides (you may have to depress the locking
tabs when inserting). See Figure 2-3.
When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should hear the
locking tabs "click". Finish by inserting and tightening the thumbscrews that hold
the front of the server to the rack.

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After you install the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 in the rack, you will need to open the top
cover to make sure the serverboard is properly installed and all the connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the inside of the System (see Figure 2-4)
First, release the retention screws that secure the system to the rack. Grasp the two
handles on either side and pull the system straight out until it locks (you will hear
a "click"). Next, release the thumbscrew at the middle rear of the top cover. Then
depress the two buttons on the top of the chassis to release the top cover. Push
the cover away from you (toward the rear of the chassis) until it stops. You can then
lift the top cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.
To remove the system from the rack completely, depress the locking tabs in the
chassis rails (push the right-side tab down and the left-side tab up) to continue to
pull the system out past the locked position.
2. Check the CPUs (processors)
You may have one or two processors already installed in the serverboard. Each
processor needs its own heatsink. See Chapter 5 for instructions on processor and
heatsink installation.
3. Check the system memory
Your server system may have come with system memory already installed. Make
sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots. For details on adding system memory,
refer to Chapter 5.
4. Installing add-on cards
If desired, you can install an add-on card to the system. See Chapter 5 for details
on installing PCI add-on cards.
5. Check all cable connections and airflow
Make sure all power and data cables are properly connected and not blocking the
chassis airflow. See Chapter 5 for details on cable connections.

Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the SATA/SCSI
drives and SATA/SCSI backplane have been properly installed and all connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the drive bays
All drives are accessable from the front of the server. For servicing the DVDROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove the top chassis cover. The
SATA/SCSI disk drives can be installed and removed from the front of the chassis
without removing the top chassis cover.
2. DVD-ROM and floppy disk drives
A slim DVD-ROM and floppy drive should be preinstalled in your server. Refer
to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a DVD-ROM and/or floppy disk drive to the
system.
3. Check the SATA/SCSI disk drives
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one or
more drives already installed. If you need to install SATA/SCSI drives, please
refer to Chapter 6.
4. Check the airflow
Airflow is provided by six sets of 40-mm fans (each set of fans consists of two
fans that are mounted back to back). The system component layout was carefully designed to direct sufficient cooling airflow to the components that generate
the most heat. Note that all power and data cables have been routed in such a
way that they do not block the airflow generated by the fans.
5. Supplying power to the system
The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug the
power cord from the power supply module into a high-quality power strip that
offers protection from electrical noise and power surges. It is recommended that
you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) source.

Overview
There are several LEDs on the control panel as well as others on the SATA/SCSI
drive carriers to keep you constantly informed of the overall status of the system
as well as the activity and health of specific components. There are also two buttons on the chassis control panel and an on/off switch on the power supply. This
chapter explains the meanings of all LED indicators and the appropriate response
you may need to take.

Control Panel Buttons
There are two push-buttons located on the front of the chassis. These are (in
order from left to right) a reset button and a power on/off button.
Reset: Use the reset switch to reboot the system.
Power: The main power switch is used to apply or remove power from the
power supply to the server system. Turning off system power with this button
removes the main power but keeps standby power supplied to the system.

Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC818TQ+-1000/SC818S+-1000
chassis has five LEDs. These LEDs provide you with critical information related
to different parts of the system. This section explains what each LED indicates
when illuminated and any corrective action you may need to take.
Overheat/Fan Fail: When this LED flashes it indicates a fan failure. When
on continuously (on and not flashing) it indicates an overheat condition, which
may be caused by cables obstructing the airflow in the system or the ambient
room temperature being too warm. Check the routing of the cables and make
sure all fans are present and operating normally. You should also check to make
sure that the chassis covers are installed. Finally, verify that the heatsinks are
installed properly (see Chapter 5). This LED will remain flashing or on as long as
the overheat condition exists.

Drive Carrier LEDs
SATA Drives (1041M-T2)
Green: Each Serial ATA drive carrier has a green LED. When illuminated,
this green LED (on the front of the SATA drive carrier) indicates drive activity. A
connection to the SATA backplane enables this LED to blink on and off when that
particular drive is being accessed. Please refer to Chapter 6 for instructions on
replacing failed SATA drives.
Red: The red LED to indicate an SATA drive failure. If one of the SATA drives
fail, you should be notified by your system management software. Please refer to
Chapter 6 for instructions on replacing failed SATA drives.
SCSI Drives (1041M-82)
Each SCSI drive carrier has two LEDs.
Green: When illuminated, the green LED on the front of the SCSI drive carrier indicates drive activity. A connection to the SCSI SCA backplane enables this
LED to blink on and off when that particular drive is being accessed.
Red: The SAF-TE compliant backplane activates the red LED to indicate a
drive failure. If one of the SCSI drives fail, you should be notified by your system
management software. Please refer to Chapter 6 for instructions on replacing failed
SCSI drives.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect yourself from
harm and the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 from damage:
Be aware of the locations of the power on/off switch on the chassis as well as
the room's emergency power-off switch, disconnection switch or electrical
outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then quickly remove power
from the system.
Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing or
installing main system components, such as the serverboard, memory
modules and the DVD-ROM and floppy drives (not necessary for SATA/SCSI
drives). When disconnecting power, you should first power down the system
with the operating system and then unplug the power cords from all the power
supply modules in the system.
When working around exposed electrical circuits, another person who is
familiar with the power-off controls should be nearby to switch off the power
if necessary.
Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment. This
is to avoid making a complete circuit, which will cause electrical shock.
Use extreme caution when using metal tools, which can easily damage any
electrical components or circuit boards they come into contact with.
Do not use mats designed to decrease electrostatic discharge as protection
from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically
designed as electrical insulators.
The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
4-1
AS1041M-T2/1041M-82 User's Manual
Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the onboard
battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarities (see Figure
4-1). This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to
the manufacturer's instructions.
DVD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with
a DVD-ROM drive. To prevent direct exposure to the laser beam and
hazardous radiation exposure, do not open the enclosure or use the unit in
any unconventional way.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
Keep the area around the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 clean and free of clutter.
The 1041M-T2/1041M-82 weighs approximately 40 lbs (18.2 kg) when fully
loaded. When lifting the system, two people at either end should lift slowly
with their feet spread out to distribute the weight. Always keep your back
straight and lift with your legs.
Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been
removed away from the system or on a table so that they won't accidentally
be stepped on.
While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as neckties and
unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact with electrical circuits
or be pulled into a cooling fan.
Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent metal
conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they come into
contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is present.
After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and secure
it to the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that all connections
have been made.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
4-3
ESD Precautions
!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different electrical
charges coming into contact with each other. An electrical discharge is created to
neutralize this difference, which can damage electronic components and printed
circuit boards. The following measures are generally sufficient to neutralize this
difference before contact is made to protect your equipment from ESD:
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their antistatic
bags until ready for use.
Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic
bag.
Do not let components or PCBs come into contact with your clothing, which
may retain a charge even if you are wearing a wrist strap.
Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or contacts.
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
Put the serverboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when
not in use.
For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the serverboard.

Operating Precautions
!
Care must be taken to assure that the chassis cover is in place when the
1041M-T2/1041M-82 is operating to ensure proper cooling. Out of warranty
damage to the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 system can occur if this practice is not
strictly followed.

Advanced Serverboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to the
H8QME-2+/H8QM8-2+ serverboard, connect the data and power cables and install add-on cards. All serverboard jumpers and connections are described and
a layout and quick reference chart are included in this chapter. Remember to
close the chassis completely when you have finished working on the serverboard
to protect and cool the system sufficiently.
5-1
Handling the Serverboard
Static electrical discharge can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to printed circuit boards, it is important to handle them very carefully (see
Chapter 4). Also note that the size and weight of the serverboard can cause
it to bend if handled improperly, which may result in damage. To prevent the
serverboard from bending, keep one hand under the center of the board to support it when handling. The following measures are generally sufficient to protect
your equipment from static discharge.
Precautions
•
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
•
Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic
bag.
• Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or gold contacts.
•
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
•
Put the serverboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic
bags when not in use.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage. When
unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

Processor and Heatsink Installation
Exercise extreme caution when handling and installing the proces-
!
sor. Always connect the power cord last and always remove it before adding, removing or changing any hardware components.
CPU Backplates
Two CPU backplates (BKT-0011L) have been preinstalled to the serverboard to
prevent the CPU area of the serverboard from bending and to provide a base for
attaching the heatsink retention modules.
Installing the Processor (must populate two or four CPU sockets)
1. Begin by removing the cover plate
that protects the CPU. Lift the lever on
the CPU socket until it points straight
up. With the lever raised, lift open the
silver CPU retention plate.
Triangles
2. Use your thumb and your index
finger to hold the CPU. Locate and
align pin 1 of the CPU socket with pin
1 of the CPU. Both are marked with
a triangle.
5-2
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
3. Align pin 1 of the CPU with pin 1
of the socket. Once aligned, carefully
place the CPU into the socket. Do not
drop the CPU on the socket, move the
CPU horizontally or vertically or rub the
CPU against the socket or against any
pins of the socket, which may damage
the CPU and/or the socket.
4. With the CPU inserted into the
socket, inspect the four corners of the
CPU to make sure that it is properly installed and flush with the socket. Then,
gently lower the silver CPU retention
plate into place.
5. Carefully press the CPU socket lever down until it locks into its retention
tab. For a dual-CPU system, repeat
these steps to install another CPU into
the CPU#2 socket (and into CPU#2,
#3 and #4 sockets for a quad-CPU
configuration).
Note: in dual-CPU configurations,
only the CPU1 and CPU2 DIMM slots
are addressable for a maximum of 16
GB memory.

AS1041M-T2/1041M-82 User's Manual
Installing the Heatsink Retention Modules
Two heatsink retention modules (BKT-0012L) and four screws are included in the
retail box. Once installed, these are used to help attach the heatsinks to the CPUs.
To install, align the module with the standoffs of the preinstalled CPU backplate and
with the four feet on the module contacting the serverboard. Secure the retention
module to the backplate with two of the screws provided. See Figure 2-1. Repeat for
the second CPU socket. Note: BKT-0012L is included for use with non-proprietary
heatsinks only. When installing proprietary heatsinks, only BKT-0011L (the CPU
backplate) is needed. The BKT-0012L retention module was designed to provide
compatibility with clip-and-cam type heatsinks from third parties.
Figure 2-1. CPU Heatsink Retention Module Installation
Installing the Heatsink
The use of active type heatsinks (except for 1U systems) are recommended. Connect the heatsink fans to the appropriate fan headers on the serverboard. To install
the heatsinks, please follow the installation instructions included with your heatsink
package (not included).

Connecting Cables
Now that the processors are installed, the next step is to connect the cables to
the serverboard. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the peripherals and
control panel and the power cables.
Connecting Data Cables
The ribbon cables used to transfer data from the peripheral devices have been
carefully routed in preconfigured systems to prevent them from blocking the flow
of cooling air that moves through the system from front to back. If you need to
disconnect any of these cables, you should take care to reroute them as they
were originally after reconnecting them (make sure the red wires connect to the
pin 1 locations). If you are configuring the system, keep the airflow in mind when
routing the cables. The following data cables (with their serverboard connector
locations noted) should be connected. See the serverboard layout diagram in this
chapter for connector locations.
DVD-ROM drive cable (IDE#1)
Control Panel cable (JF1, see next page)
1041M-T2: Serial ATA cables (I-SATA0, I-SATA1, I-SATA3)
1041M-T2: SGPIO cable (SGPIO1)
1041M-82: SCSI cables (JA1)
Connecting Power Cables
The H8QME-2+/H8QM8-2+ has a 24-pin ATX power supply connector designated
"J1B1" for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate connector
from the power supply to J1B1 to supply power to the serverboard. See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for power connector pin definitions.
In addition, your power supply must be connected to both 8-pin processor power
connectors at JPW1 and JPW2.
5-5
AS1041M-T2/1041M-82 User's Manual
Connecting the Control Panel
JF1 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See Figure
5-1 for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons and LED indicators. Please note that even and odd numbered pins are on opposite sides of
each header.
All JF1 wires have been bundled into single keyed ribbon cable to simplify their
connection. The red wire in the ribbon cable plugs into pin 1 of JF1. Connect
the other end of the cable to the Control Panel printed circuit board, located just
behind the system status LEDs in the chassis.
See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for details and pin descriptions of JF1.

Installing Memory
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules.
CAUTION
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM modules
to prevent any possible damage.
1. Insert each memory module vertically into its slot, paying attention to the notch
along the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the module incorrectly (see
Figure 5-3). See support information below.
2. Gently press down on the memory module until it snaps into place.
Note: Each processor has its own built-in memory controller, consequently each
CPU has a four-slot memory bank associated with it. (Memory installed into a bank
with no CPU present cannot be accessed.) 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB and 2
GB memory modules are supported. It is highly recommended that you remove the
power cord from the system before installing or changing any memory modules.
5-7
AS1041M-T2/1041M-82 User's Manual
Support
The H8QM8-2+/H8QME-2+ supports single or dual-channel, registered ECC DDR2667/533/400 SDRAM.
Both interleaved and non-interleaved memory are supported, so you may populate
any number of DIMM slots (see note on previous page). Populating two adjacent
slots at a time with memory modules of the same size and type will result in interleaved (128-bit) memory, which is faster than non-interleaved (64-bit) memory.
Optimizing memory performance
It is better to spread pairs of DIMMs across all memory banks with a CPU installed
than to fill up one CPU memory bank while leaving another empty. For example,
if you were to install eight DIMMs in a quad-CPU configuration, you should install
two in the CPU1 DIMM slots, two in the CPU2 DIMM slots, two in the CPU3 DIMM
slots and two in the CPU4 DIMM slots rather than four in any two CPU DIMM slots.
If you install four more, install two in the remaining CPU1 DIMM slots and two in
the the remaining CPU2 DIMM slots, etc. This balances the load over all CPUs to
optimize performance. In a dual-CPU configuration, memory can only be installed
in the banks associated with CPU#1 and CPU#2.
Maximum memory: 32 GB of DDR2-667/533 or 64 GB of DDR2-400 SDRAM. In
a dual-CPU configuration, maximum memory support is halved.

Adding PCI Cards
1. PCI Expansion Slots
The H8QM8-2+/H8QME-2+ has a single x16 PCI-Express slot. The SC818TQ+1000/SC818S+-1000 chassis can support the use of one standard size PCI-Express
add-on card (with pre-installed riser card).
2. PCI Card Installation
Before installing a PCI add-on card, make sure you power off the system first.
Begin by removing the top chassis cover. The riser card should be preinstalled
into the system. Remove the screws that secure the riser cards to the rear of the
chassis then lift the riser card assembly from the chassis. Insert the PCI card into
the riser card slot, pushing down with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card
- note that the add-on card attaches to the riser card with a single screw. After the
card has been installed, reinsert the riser card back into the x16 PCI-Express slot
on the board, then secure it with the same screws you removed previously. Finish
by replacing the chassis cover.

connector. Pin 1 is identified with
a square solder pad on the printed
circuit board. See the diagram at
right for an example of jumping pins
1 and 2. Refer to the serverboard
layout page for jumper locations.
Setting
Note 1: On t wo - pin jumpers,
"Closed" means the jumper is on
and "Open" means the jumper is
off the pins.
CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS and will also clear any passwords. Instead of pins,
this jumper consists of contact pads to prevent accidentally clearing the contents
of CMOS.
To clear CMOS,
1) First power down the system and unplug the power cord(s).
2) With the power disconnected, short the CMOS pads with a metal object such as
a small screwdriver for at least four seconds.
3) Remove the screwdriver (or shorting device).
4) Reconnect the power cord(s) and power on the system.
Notes:
Do not use the PW_ON connector to clear CMOS.
The onboard battery does not need to be removed when clearing CMOS, however
you must short JBT1 for at least four seconds.

5-11 Floppy, IDE, SCSI and SATA Drive Connections
Use the following information to connect the floppy and hard disk drive cables.
The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.
A red mark on a wire typically designates the location of pin 1.
A single floppy disk drive ribbon cable has 34 wires and two connectors to provide
for two floppy disk drives. The connector with twisted wires always connects to
drive A, and the connector that does not have twisted wires always connects to
drive B.
The 80-wire ATA133 IDE hard disk drive cable that came with your system has
two connectors to support two drives. This special cable should be used to take
advantage of the speed this new technology offers. The blue connector connects
to the onboard IDE connector interface and the other connector(s) to your hard
drive(s). Consult the documentation that came with your disk drive for details
on actual jumper locations and settings for the hard disk drive.

5-12 Enabling SATA RAID
Serial ATA (SATA)
Serial ATA (SATA) is a physical storage interface that employs a single cable with
a minimum of four wires to create a point-to-point connection between devices.
This connection is a serial link. The serial cables used in SATA are thinner than
the traditional cables used in Parallel ATA (PATA) and can extend up to one meter
in length, compared to only 40 cm for PATA cables. Overall, SATA provides better
functionality than PATA.
Installing the OS/SATA Driver
Before installing the OS (operating system) and SATA RAID driver, you must decide
if you wish to have the operating system installed as part of a bootable RAID array
or installed to a separate non-RAID hard drive. If on a separate drive, you may
install the driver either during or after the OS installation. If you wish to have the
OS on a SATA RAID array, you must follow the procedure below and install the
driver during the OS installation.
Note: the SATA RAID driver is supported by Windows 2000 and XP only.
Building a Driver Diskette
You must first build a driver diskette from the CD-ROM that was included with the
system. (You will have to create this disk on a computer that is already running and
with the OS installed.) Insert the CD into your CD-ROM drive and start the system.
A display as shown in Figure 5-4 will appear. Click on the icon labeled "Build Driver
Diskettes and Manuals" and follow the instructions to create a floppy disk with the
driver on it. Once it's been created, remove the floppy and insert the installation
CD for the Windows Operating System you wish to install into the CD-ROM drive
of the new system you are about to configure.
Enabling SATA RAID in the BIOS
Before installing the Windows Operating System, you must change some settings
in BIOS. Boot up the system and hit the <Del> key to enter the BIOS Setup Utlility.
After the Setup Utility loads,
1. Use the arrow keys to move to the Exit menu. Scroll down with the arrow keys
to the "Load Optimal Defaults setting and press <Enter>. Select "OK" to confirm,
then <Enter> to load the default settings.
5-26
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
2. Use the arrow keys to move to the "Advanced" menu, then scroll down to "nVidia
RAID Function" and press the <Enter> key. Use this setting to enable the RAID
function. After enabling RAID, use the next setting to enable all drives you wish to
include in the RAID array.
3. Hit the <F10> key to "Save Changes and Exit", then hit <Enter> to verify.
4. After exiting the BIOS Setup Utility, the system will reboot. When prompted
during the startup, press the <F10> key when prompted to run the nVidia RAID
Utility program.
Using the nVidia RAID Utility
The nVidia RAID Utility program is where you can define the drives you want to
include in the RAID array and the mode and type of RAID. Two main windows are
shown in the utility. The "Free Disks" window on the left will list all available drives.
Use the arrow keys to select and move drives to the window on the right, (the "Array
Disks" window) which lists all drives that are to become part of the RAID array.
Once you have finished selecting the drives and type of RAID you wish to use for
your RAID array, press the <F7> key. You will be prompted to verify your choice; if
you want to continue with your choices, select "Yes". Note that selecting "Yes" will
clear all previous data from the drives you selected to be a part of the array. You
are then given the choice of making the RAID array bootable by pressing the the
<B> key. After you have finshed, press the <Ctrl> and <X> keys simultaneously.
Installing the OS and Drivers
With the Windows OS installation CD in the CD-ROM drive, restart the system.
When you see the prompt, hit the <F6> key to enter Windows setup. Eventually a
blue screen will appear with a message that begins "Windows could not determine
the type of one or more storage devices . . ." When you see the screen, hit the <S>
key to "Specify Additional Device", then insert the driver diskette you just created
into the floppy drive. Highlight "Manufuacturer Supplied Hardware Support Disk"
and hit the <Enter> key. Highlight the first "nVidia RAID" driver shown and press
the <Enter> key to install it. Soon a similar blue screen will appear again. Again hit
the <S> key, then highlight the second item, "nForce Storage Controller" and press
the <Enter> key, then <Enter> again to continue with the Windows setup.

Static-Sensitive Devices
Electricstatic discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very
carefully. The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment
from ESD damage.
Precautions
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic
bag.
Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips,
memory modules or gold contacts.
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
Put the serverboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic bags
when not in use.
For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides excellent
conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting fasteners and
the serverboard.

The control panel (located on the front of the chassis) must be connected to the
JF1 connector on the serverboard to provide you with system status indications.
These wires have been bundled together as a ribbon cable to simplify the connection. Connect the cable from JF1 on the serverboard to the appropriate header on
the Control Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs into
pin 1 on both connectors. Pull all excess cabling out of the airflow path.
The control panel LEDs inform you of system status. See "Chapter 3: System
Interface" for details on the LEDs and the control panel buttons. Details on JF1
can be found in "Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup."

System Fans
Six 40-mm heavy duty counter-rotating fans provide the cooling for the AS1041MT2/1041M-82. Each fan unit is actually made up of two fans joined back-to-back,
which rotate in opposite directions. This counter-rotating action generates exceptional airflow and works to dampen vibration levels. It is very important that the
chassis top cover is properly installed and making a good seal in order for the
cooling air to circulate properly through the chassis and cool the components. See
Figure 6-2.
System Fan Failure
Fan speed is controlled by system temperature via a BIOS setting. If a fan fails,
the remaining fan will ramp up to full speed and the overheat/fan fail LED on the
control panel will turn on. Replace any failed fan at your earliest convenience with
the same type and model (the system can continue to run with a failed fan). Remove
the top chassis cover while the system is still running to determine which of the
fans has failed. Then power down the system before replacing a fan. Removing
the power cord(s) is also recommended as a safety precaution.
Replacing System Fans
1. Removing a fan
After turning off the power to the system, first remove the chassis cover and unplug
the fan cable from the motherboard. Unscrew the failed blower fan from the chassis
and pull it completely out from the serverboard.
2. Installing a new fan
Replace the failed fan with an identical 40-mm, 12 volt fan (available from
Supermicro: p/n FAN-0086L). Push the new fan into the vacant space in the housing while making sure the arrows on the top of the fan (indicating air direction) point
in the same direction as the arrows on the other fans. Reposition the fan housing
back over the two mounting posts in the chassis, then reconnect the fan wires to
the same chassis fan headers you removed them from. Power up the system and
check that the fan is working properly and that the LED on the control panel has
turned off. Finish by replacing the chassis cover.

Drive Bay Installation/Removal
Removing the Front Bezel
If your system has a front bezel (optional) attached to the chassis, you must first
remove it to gain access to the drive bays. To remove the bezel, first unlock the
front of the chassis then press the release knob (see Figure 6-3). Carefully remove the bezel with both hands. A filter located within the bezel can be removed
for replacement/cleaning. It is recommended that you keep a maintenance log of
filter cleaning/replacement, since its condition will affect the airflow throughout the
whole system.

Accessing the Drive Bays
SATA/SCSI Drives: Because of their hotswap capability, you do not need to access
the inside of the chassis or power down the system to install or replace SATA or
SCSI drives. Proceed to the next section for instructions.
DVD-ROM/Floppy Disk Drives: For installing/removing a DVD-ROM or floppy disk
drive, you will need to gain access to the inside of the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 by removing the top cover of the chassis. Proceed to the "DVD-ROM and Floppy Drive
Installation" section later in this chapter for instructions.
Note: Only "slim" DVD-ROM and floppy drives will fit into the 1041M-T2/1041M82.

AS 1041M-T2/1041M-82 User's Manual
SATA/SCSI Drive Installation
1. Mounting a SATA/SCSI drive in a drive carrier
The SATA/SCSI drives are mounted in drive carriers to simplify their installation
and removal from the chassis. These carriers also help promote proper airflow for
the drive bays. For this reason, even empty carriers without drives installed must
remain in the chassis. To add a new drive, install a drive into the carrier with the
printed circuit board side facing down so that the mounting holes align with those
in the carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with six screws, as shown in Figure
6-4.
Figure 6-4. Mounting a SATA/SCSI Drive in a Carrier
!
Use caution when working around the SATA/SCSI backplane. Do
not touch the backplane with any metal objects and make sure no
ribbon cables touch the backplane or obstruct the holes, which
aid in proper airflow.
!
Important: Regardless of how many SATA/SCSI hard drives are
installed, all drive carriers must remain in the drive bays to maintain proper airflow.
6-6
Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
2. Installing/removing hot-swap SATA/SCSI drives
The SATA/SCSI drive carriers are all easily accessible at the front of the chassis.
These hard drives are hot-pluggable, meaning they can be removed and installed
without powering down the system. To remove a carrier, push the release button
located beside the drive LEDs. Then swing the colored handle fully out and use it
to pull the unit straight out (see Figure 6-5).
Note: Your operating system must have RAID support to enable the hot-plug capability of the SATA/SCSI drives.
Figure 6-5. Removing a SATA/SCSI Drive from the Server
SCSI/SATA Backplane
The SCSI/SATA drives plug into a backplane that provides power, drive ID and bus
termination. A RAID controller can be used with the backplane to provide data
security. The operating system you use must have RAID support to enable the
hot-swap capability of the drives. The backplane is already preconfigured, so there
are no jumpers or switches present on it.

AS 1041M-T2/1041M-82 User's Manual
DVD-ROM and Floppy Drive Installation
The top cover of the chassis must be opened to gain full access to the DVD-ROM
and floppy drive bays. The 1041M-T2/1041M-82 accomodates only slim-line DVDROM drives. Side mounting brackets are needed to mount a slim-line DVD-ROM
drive in the 1041M-T2/1041M-82 server.
You must power down the system before installing or removing a floppy or DVDROM drive. First, grasp the two handles on either side and pull the unit straight out
until it locks (you will hear a "click"). Next, release the thumbscrew at the rear of
the top chassis cover. Then depress the two buttons on the top of the chassis and
at the same time, push the cover away from you until it stops. You can then lift the
top cover from the chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.
With the chassis cover removed, unplug the power and data cables from the drive
you want to remove. Then locate the locking tab at the rear of the drive. It will be
on the left side of the drive when viewed from the front of the chassis. Pull the tab
away from the drive and push the drive unit out the front of the chassis. Add a new
drive by following this procedure in reverse order. You may hear a faint *click* of the
locking tab when the drive is fully inserted. Remember to reconnect the data and
power cables to the drive before replacing the chassis cover and restoring power
to the system. Please be aware of the following:
•
The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.
•
A color mark on a cable typically designates the location of pin 1.
• A single floppy disk drive ribbon cable has 34 wires and two connectors to provide
for two floppy disk drives. The connector with twisted wires always connects to
drive A, and the connector that does not have twisted wires always connects to
drive B.

Power Supply
The SuperServer 1041M-T2/1041M-82 has a single 1000 watt power supply, which
is auto-switching capable. This enables it to automatically sense and operate at a
100v to 240v input voltage. An amber light will be illuminated on the power supply
when the power is off. An illuminated green light indicates that the power supply
is operating.
Power Supply Failure
If the power supply unit fails, the system will shut down and you will need to replace
the unit. Replacement units can be ordered directly from Supermicro (see contact
information in the Preface). As there is only one power supply unit in the 1041MT2/1041M-82, power must be completely removed from the server before removing
and replacing the power supply unit for whatever reason.
Removing/Replacing the Power Supply
1. Removing the power supply
First unplug the power cord from the failed power supply module. The power supply
module is cold-swappable. To remove the failed power module, simply push the
release tab (on the back of the power supply) to the right and then pull the module
straight out (see Figure 6-6). The power supply wiring was designed to detach
automatically when the module is pulled from the chassis.
2. Installing a new power supply
Replace the failed power module with another PWS-561-1H20 power supply module. Push the new power supply module into the power bay until you hear a click.
Finish by plugging the AC power cord back into the module and powering up the
system by depressing the power on/off button.

Introduction
This chapter describes the AMIBIOS™ Setup utility for the H8QM8-2+/H8QME-2+.
The AMI ROM BIOS is stored in a flash chip and can be easily upgraded using a
floppy disk-based program.
Note: Due to periodic changes to the BIOS, some settings may have been added or
deleted and might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer to the Manual
Download area of our web site for any changes to BIOS that may not be reflected
in this manual.
Starting the Setup Utility
To enter the BIOS Setup Utility, hit the <Delete> key while the system is booting-up.
(In most cases, the <Delete> key is used to invoke the BIOS setup screen. There are
a few cases when other keys are used, such as <F1>, <F2>, etc.) Each main BIOS
menu option is described in this manual.
The Main BIOS screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the options
that can be configured. “Grayed-out” options cannot be configured. The right frame
displays the key legend. Above the key legend is an area reserved for a text message. When an option is selected in the left frame, it is highlighted in white. Often a
text message will accompany it. (Note that BIOS has default text messages built in.
We retain the option to include, omit, or change any of these text messages.) Settings printed in Bold are the default values.
A " " indicates a submenu. Highlighting such an item and pressing the <Enter>
key will open the list of settings within that submenu.
The BIOS setup utility uses a key-based navigation system called hot keys. Most of
these hot keys (<F1>, <F10>, <Enter>, <ESC>, <Arrow> keys, etc.) can be used at
any time during the setup navigation process.

Appendix A
BIOS Error Beep Codes
During the POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines, which are performed each time
the system is powered on, errors may occur.
Non-fatal errors are those which, in most cases, allow the system to continue the
boot-up process. The error messages normally appear on the screen.
Fatal errors are those which will not allow the system to continue the boot-up procedure. If a fatal error occurs, you should consult with your system manufacturer
for possible repairs.
These fatal errors are usually communicated through a series of audible beeps.
The numbers on the fatal error list, on the following page, correspond to the number
of beeps for the corresponding error. All errors listed, with the exception of Beep
Code 8, are fatal errors.
POST codes may be read on the debug LEDs located beside the LAN port on the
serverboard backplane. See the description of the Debug LEDs (LED1 and LED2)
in Chapter 5.
