Server Installation
2-1
Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your system 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 system 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 server. 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. Read the Rack and Server Precautions in
the next section.
2-3
Preparing for Setup
The box the server 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.
Choosing a Setup Location
•
Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open the front door
completely (~25 inches) and 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).
2-1
SUPERSERVER 1027GR-TQF/1027GR-TQFT User's Manual
•
This product is not suitable for use with visual display work place devices
acccording to §2 of the the German Ordinance for Work with Visual Display
Units.
!
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.
•
Rack-mounted equipment should not be used as a shelf or work space.
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 drives and power supply modules to cool before touching them.
2-2
Chapter 2: Server Installation
•
Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on the servers
closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.
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.).

Installing the System into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the SC118GQ chassis into a rack
unit with the rails provided. There are a variety of rack units on the market, which
may mean that the assembly procedure will differ slightly. You should also refer to
the installation instructions that came with the rack unit you are using.
Note: This rail will fit a rack between 26" and 33.5" deep.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
The chassis package includes 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.

Chapter 2: Server Installation
Installing the Inner Rail Extensions
The SC118GQ chassis includes a set of inner rack rails in two sections: inner rails
(A) and inner rail extensions (B). The inner rails are preattached and do not interfere
with normal use of the chassis if you decide not to install to a server rack. Attaching
the inner rail extensions to to the inner rails stabilizes the chassis within the rack.
Installing the Inner Rail Extensions
1. Place the inner rail extensions (B) over the preattached inner rails (A) which
are attached to the side of the chassis. Align the hooks of the inner rail with
the rail extension holes. Make sure the extension faces "outward" just like the
inner rail.
2. Slide the extension toward the front of the chassis.
3. Secure the chassis with screws as illustrated.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the other inner rail extension.

Installing the Server into a Telco Rack
Optional brackets are needed to install the server to a telco (open type) rack.
To install the server into a Telco type rack, use the two L-shaped brackets on either
side of the chassis (four total). First, determine how far follow the server will extend
out the front of the rack. Larger chassis should be positioned to balance the weight
between front and back. If a bezel is included on your server, remove it. Then attach the two front brackets to each side of the chassis, then the two rear brackets
positioned with just enough space to accommodate the width of the telco rack. Finish
by sliding the chassis into the rack and tightening the brackets to the rack.

Control Panel LEDs
The two control panels are located on the front of the SC118GQTS chassis. Each
control panel has six LEDs. These LEDs provide critical information related to different parts of the system. This section explains what each LED indicates when
illuminated and any action that may be required..
Overheat/Fan Fail/UID LED
When this LED flashes it indicates a fan failure. When continuously on (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 that all fans are present and operating
normally. Also check to make sure that the air shrouds are installed and that the
top cover is on. Finally, verify that the heatsinks are installed properly.
This LED will remain flashing or on as long as the overheat condition exists. When
used with a UID-compatible motherboard, the UID function is used to turn on or off
the blue light function of the the LED. Once the blue light is activated through the
system software, the unit can be easily located in very large racks and server banks.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Note: power should always be disconnected before performing any service
on the system.
Basic electrical safety precautions shall be followed to protect yourself from harm
and the server 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 floppy drive. When disconnecting power, you should first power down the
system with the operating system first and then unplug the power cords of all
the power supply units 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 static electrical discharge as protection
from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have been specifically
designed as electrical insulators.
•
The power supply power cords must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets.

•
This product may be connected to an IT power system. In all cases, make sure
that the unit is also reliably connected to Earth (ground).
•
Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the onboard
battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its polarites (see Figure 4-1).
This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer (CR2032). 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.
•
Mainboard replaceable soldered-in fuses: Self-resetting PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient) fuses on the mainboard must be replaced by trained service
technicians only. The new fuse must be the same or equivalent as the one
replaced. Contact technical support for details and support.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
•
Keep the area around the server clean and free of clutter.
•
The server weighs approximately 37 lbs. (16.8 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.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
•
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.
4-3
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 the board from the 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.

Handling the Serverboard
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to any printed circuit boards (PCBs), it is important to handle them very carefully
(see previous chapter). 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 electric static discharge.
Precautions
•
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent Electrostatic Discharge
(ESD).
•
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.

Serverboard Installation
This section explains the first step of physically mounting the X9DRG-HF/X9DRGHTF into the SC118GQ chassis. Following the steps in the order given will eliminate
the most common problems encountered in such an installation. To remove the
serverboard, follow the procedure in reverse order.
Installing to the Chassis
1. Access the inside of the system by removing the screws from the back lip of
the top cover of the chassis, then pull the cover off.
2. Make sure that the I/O ports on the serverboard align properly with their
respective holes in the I/O shield at the back of the chassis.
3. Carefully mount the serverboard to the serverboard tray by aligning the board
holes with the raised metal standoffs that are visible in the chassis.
4. Insert screws into all the mounting holes on your serverboard that line up
with the standoffs and tighten until snug (if you screw them in too tight, you
might strip the threads). Metal screws provide an electrical contact to the
serverboard ground to provide a continuous ground for the system.
5. Install the processors and make all necessary cable connections, as described in the sections that follow.
Warning: To avoid damaging the serverboard and its components, do not apply
any force greater than 8 lbs. per square inch when installing a screw into a mounting hole.
5-2
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
5-3
Connecting Cables
Now that the serverboard is installed, the next step is to connect the cables to the
board. 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 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 keep them routed as they were originally after reconnecting
them (make sure the red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). The following data
cables (with their locations noted) should be connected. (See the layout on page
5-12 for connector locations.)
•
SATA drive data cables (I-SATA0 ~ 3)
•
SATA sideband cable (T-SGPIO ~ 1)
•
Control Panel cable (JF1)
•
GPU power cables (JPW3, JPW7 and JPW11)
•
SATA backplane power cable (JPW5)
Important! Make sure the the cables do not come into contact with the fans.
Connecting Power Cables
The X9DRG-HF/X9DRG-HTF has three proprietary power supply connectors
(JPW1, JPW2 and JPW9) for connection to the ATX power supply. See Section 5-9
for power connector pin definitions.
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.
All JF1 wires have been bundled into a single ribbon cable to simplify this connection. Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the board. The other
end connects to the Control Panel PCB board, located just behind the system status
LEDs on the chassis. See Chapter 5 for details and pin descriptions.

Static-Sensitive Devices
Electrostatic 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.

Control Panel
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. A
ribbon cable has bundled these wires together 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 Installation."
6-3
System Cooling
Twelve 4-cm counter-rotating fans provide the cooling for the system. 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.
6-2
Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
System Fan Failure
Fan speed is controlled by system temperature via IPMI. If a fan fails, the remaining
fans will ramp up to full speed. Replace any failed fan at your earliest convenience
with the same type and model (the system can continue to run with a failed fan).
Failed fans can be identified through the BIOS. (See the fan numbering in Figure
6-3. These numbers are also imprinted on the floor of the chassis.)
Replacing a System Fan
1. If the BIOS is not being utilized to determine which fan has failed, open the
top cover of the chassis while the system is running to locate the position of
the failed fan. Never run the server for an extended period of time with the
top cover open.
2. Turn off the power to the system and unplug the AC power cord.
3. Remove the failed fan's wiring from the serverboard.
4. Remove the four pins securing the fan to the fan tray.
5. Lift the failed fan from the fan tray and out of the chassis.
6. Place the new fan into the vacant space in the fan tray, 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 in the same fan tray.
7. Reconnect the fan wires to the exact same chassis fan headers as the previous fan.
8. Reconnect the AC power cord, power up the system and check that the fan is
working properly before replacing the chassis cover.

Installing the Air Shroud
Air shrouds concentrate airflow to maximize fan efficiency. The SC118GQTS chassis
air shroud does not require screws to set up
Note: Each GPU card has its own air shroud.
Installing the Air Shroud
1. Position the air shroud in the chassis as illustrated in Figure 6-4.
2. Align the notch on the air shroud with the pin on the add-on card bracket.
3. Slide the pin into the back of the notch.
4. Lower the front of the air shroud over the fan tray, sliding the front notches
over the pins on the fan tray.
Installing Graphics (GPU) Cards
The SC118GQTS chassis supports four GPU cards, which are mounted in brackets
to fit into the PCI-E 3.0 slots. Supported GPU cards include NVIDIA M2090 and
M2075. The GPU cards may be preinstalled, the procedure below is provided for
when a GPU card need to be replaced.
Installing Graphics Cards
1. Identify the left and right brackets and graphics cards as illustrated below.
2. Insert the graphics cards into the brackets, aligning the mounting holes in the
graphics cards with the mounting holes in the brackets.
3. Secure each card to the bracket using the six screws which are included for
this purpose.
4. Carefullly position each bracket in the chassis, aligning the four mounting
holes in the top and side of each bracket with the corresponding mounting
holes in the chassis.
5. Secure the bracket to the chassis by using the screws provided.
6. After a GPU card is installed, you must connect it to one of the following
power headers on the serverboard: JPW3, JPW4, JPW6, JPW7, JPW8 or

Drive Bay Installation/Removal
Accessing the Drive Bays
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 hard drives. Proceed to the
next section for instructions.
Hard Drive Installation
The hard 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.
Removing Hard Drive Carriers from the Chassis
1. Press the release button on the drive carrier. This extends the drive carrier handle.
2. Use the handle to pull the drive carrier out of the chassis.
Installing a Hard Drive into a Drive Carrier
1. Remove the dummy drive, which comes pre-installed in the drive carrier, by
removing the screws securing the dummy drive to the carrier. Note that these
screws cannot be reused on the actual 2.5" hard drive.
2. Insert a drive into the carrier with the PCB side facing down and the connector end toward the rear of the carrier.
6-6
Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
3. Align the drive in the carrier so that the screw holes of both line up. Note that
there are holes in the carrier marked “SATA” to aid in correct installation.
4. Secure the drive to the carrier with four M3 screws as illustrated below. These
screws are included in the chassis accessory box.
5. Insert the drive carrier into its bay, keeping the carrier oriented so that the
hard drive is on the top of the carrier and the release button is on the right
side. When the carrier reaches the rear of the bay, the release handle will
retract.
6. Push the handle in until it clicks into its locked position
!
Warning: Except for short periods of time (swapping hard drives), do not
operate the server with the hard drive carriers removed.

Power Supply
The 1027GR-TQF/1027GR-TQFT series server includes a single 1800 watt power
supply. The power supply module has an auto-switching capability, which enables
it to automatically sense and operate at a 100V - 240V input voltage.
If the power supply fails, the server must be shutdown and the power cord disconnected before replacing with a new power supply module. Replacement units can
be ordered directly from Supermicro.
Figure 6-8. Removing the Power Supply
Replacing the Power Supply
1. First make sure the server is powered off, then unplug the AC power cord
from the failed power supply module.
2. To remove the failed power unit, push in the locking tab at the back of the
module to release it. You can then pull the unit straight out of the chassis.
3. Replace the failed unit with another of the exact same power supply.
4. Carefully insert the new unit into position in the chassis and secure it with the
screws at the rear of the unit.
5. Reconnect the AC power cord and restart the server.

Introduction
This chapter describes the AMI BIOS Setup utility for the X9DRG-HF/HTF. It also
provides the instructions on how to navigate the AMI BIOS Setup utility screens.
The AMI ROM BIOS is stored in a Flash EEPROM and can be easily updated.
Starting BIOS Setup Utility
To enter the AMI BIOS Setup utility screens, press the <Del> key while the system
is booting up.
Note: In most cases, the <Del> key is used to invoke the AMI BIOS setup
screen. There are a few cases when other keys are used, such as <F3>,
<F4>, etc.
Each main BIOS menu option is described in this manual. The Main BIOS setup
menu screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the options that can
be configured. Grayed-out options cannot be configured. Options in blue can be
configured by the user. 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: The AMI BIOS has default text messages built in. The manufacturer
retains the option to include, omit, or change any of these text messages.
The AMI BIOS Setup utility uses a key-based navigation system called "hot keys."
Most of the AMI BIOS setup utility "hot keys" can be used at any time during setup
navigation. These keys include <F3>, <F4>, <Enter>, <ESC>, arrow keys, etc.
Note 1: Options printed in Bold are default settings.
Note 2: <F3> is used to load optimal default settings. <F4> is used to save
the settings and exit the setup utility.

During the POST (Power-On Self-Test) routines, which are performed at each
system boot, errors may occur.
Non-fatal errors are those which, in most cases, allow the system to continue to
boot. The error messages normally appear on the screen.
Fatal errors will not allow the system to continue with bootup 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.
