The HP Integrity rx4640 is a 4U rack optimized server. It is supported in HP Rack System/E series
cabinets and HP 10000 G2 series cabinets. For factory integration order A6977AZ. Sliding mounts and
a cable management arm will be installed with the server in a factory integrated rack.
The HP Integrity rx4640 can be installed in the field with the Field Rack Kit (A6977A). This field kit
contains the slide mounts, cable management arm, and all other hardware needed to mount an rx4640
into a 19 inch cabinet.
Refer to the 10000 G2 Series Rack Best Practices Guide for information on rack deployment,
stabilization and transportation. Go to http://HP.com/go/rackandpower for more information.
For stand-alone, non-racked deployments, the HP Integrity rx4640 can be placed into a freestanding
tubular frame that wraps around the server (A6979A). This product is not available with factory
installation. However, the tubular frame is easily installed in the field.

HP Integrity rx4640 Server
Configuration
I/O Architecture
The HP Integrity rx4640 I/O architecture utilizes industry standard PCI X buses in a unique design for maximum performance,
scalability and reliability.
The HP Integrity rx4640 architecture uses eight high speed I/O channels. Each channel provides 0.5 GB/s of sustained I/O
throughput. The diagram above shows how these channels are used to provide bandwidth to the six available PCI X slots, two
reserved PCI X slots, and to multifunction core I/O. The reserved slots, #1 and #2 (counting from the bottom), will always be filled
with core I/O. Slot #2 will come factory loaded with a dual channel Ultra320 SCSI card. HP-UX, Linux, Windows, and OpenVMS
system can upgrade to a Smart Array card. Slot #1 will come factory loaded with a dual port 10/100/1000Base TX LAN adapter.
Each channel of the SCSI card may be used for either internal or external connection but not both internal and external connections.
The factory default configuration is one channel connected to the internal hard disk drive backplane. The second channel is free for
use with an external disk shelf (JBOD). The internal disk drives can be set up in a duplex configuration such that each disk has a
dedicated SCSI channel. This is called a duplex configuration and is done to enhance server availability. It is often combined with
disk mirroring software. The second internal SCSI cable is already in place to support a duplex configuration. Order A9740B for
additional components needed on the SCSI backplane of the internal disks for duplex mode. Factory installation is recommended for
the A9740B duplex kit.
The two slots at the outside edge of the backplane (slots #7 and #8) each have their own dedicated 64 bit 133 MHz PCI X bus and
their own independent 1.0 GB/s I/O channel. These slots should be used for high performance PCI and PCI X cards, such as
clustering interconnects or multi port storage adapters. The independent buses and I/O channels provide improved performance
and error containment. Independence protects each I/O card from bus hangs or extended latencies due to the failure or high
bandwidth demands of other I/O cards. Independence also ensures that each I/O card can achieve maximum throughput. Both of
these slots support hot plug operations in HP UX. Hot plug is not supported with the Linux or OpenVMS operating systems.
The remaining four slots (#3 through #6) share two 64 bit 66 MHz PCI X buses, with two slots allocated to each bus. Each pair of
slots shares a 0.5 GB/s I/O channel. If a 33 MHz card shares a bus with a 66 MHz card, the faster card will downgrade to 33 MHz.
All four of these slots support hot plug operations in HP UX. Hot plug is not supported with the Linux or OpenVMS operating
systems.
All I/O slots are keyed for I/O cards with 3.3V signaling. Cards that use 5V signaling are not supported in the HP Integrity rx4640.

HP Integrity rx4640 Server
Configuration
Internal Disk and Media
Drives
The HP Integrity rx4640 supports up to two internal low profile hot plug disk drives
A dual channel U320 SCSI channel provides independent channels for the internal disks-one disk
on one channel and one disk on a second channel. Split SCSI channels provide enhanced high
availability-one channel can fail without impacting the disks on the other channel.
Supported by Mirrordisk/UX across disk drives and independent channels
For Windows, the Smart Array 6402 may be factory configured to support RAID 1 on the internal
disks
SCSI cables required to connect the internal disk drives to the A9890A Smart Array 6402 RAID
Controller are shipped with the system; no need to order separately.
Factory configured RAID 1 array on internal disks is supported on the IPF servers. Refer to the
following URL for details on servers, Smart Array cards, and operating systems supported.
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/RAID_SM 20050125/CombinedRaidsupportMatrix.htm
The following configurations are allowed when the SA6402 (or standard SCSI HBA) is used in the
Core I/O slot:
Channel A connected to internal storage, Channel B connected to external storage
Both Channel A and B connected to external storage (boot from external storage)
The following configurations are not allowed when the SA6402 (or standard SCSI HBA) is used in
the Core I/O slot:
Both Channel A and Channel B connected to internal storage AND Channel B connected
to external storage
Channel A connected to BOTH internal and external storage; Channel B not connected
Optical media drives include a DVD ROM (A7163B) and DVD+RW (AB349B). A DVD drive is
required for all OpenVMS and Windows configurations. Third party software (not included with the
AB349B) is required to support DVD write with Windows on AB349B. OpenVMS will support DVD
write capability in a future release of the operating system.
HP Integrity rx4640 Power The HP Integrity rx4640 provides a high level of integrated power protection:
Subsystem
N+1 redundant hotswap power supplies
N+1 redundant AC power input protection with electrical phase isolation
Power monitoring and control
The HP Integrity rx4640 supports a second hot swap power supply for N+1 protection. One supply is
shipped as a standard part of every system and is required for correct operation. The hot swap design
allows for the online replacement of a power supply when N+1=2 supplies are configured in the server.
The HP Integrity rx4640 provides an independent power input receptacle for each power supply. The
independent design provides protection against losing the connection from a power cord or breaker. The
HP Integrity rx4640 power cords should always be plugged into separate breakers when possible.
The following table displays the AC power needs of the HP Integrity rx4640 at various configurations. The server has two power
supplies; two internal hard disk drives and a DVD drive in each configuration. These power figures are based on actual
measurements under typical server workloads, and are appropriate for power budgeting at customer installations

The field rack kit includes a pair of side-mounted slides and a cable management
arm which can be easily installed without tools. A rak cabinet must be on the same
order section for Factory Rack Integration. The slides and cable management arm
will be installed with the server in the rack cabinet when Factory Integration is
ordered. The Rack-less Form Facotr is a stand-alone tubular frame that wraps
around the server. It cannot be ordered with factory installation. However, the
tubular frame is easily installed in the field.
