Chapter 2 Installation
This is a CEB form factor (12'' x 10.5'', 30.5 cm x 26.7 cm) motherboard. Before you install
the motherboard, study the configuration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard
fits into it.
EP2C612 Series are dual socket motherboards that support Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3/v4
Series Processors. Please install a primary processor (BootStrap Processor) into “CPU1”
socket and then install a non-Primary Processor (Application Processors) into “CPU2”
socket. *For a single CPU, please install it into “CPU1” socket (framed by a square).
Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the motherboard. Failure
to do so may cause physical injuries to you and damages to motherboard components.
2.1 Screw Holes
Place screws into the holes indicated by circles to secure the motherboard to the chassis.
Attention! Before installing this motherboard, be sure to unscrew and remove the three
standoffs at the marked location, under the motherboard, from the chassis, in order to
avoid electrical short circuit and damage to your motherboard.

A. Front panel SMBus connecting pin (6-1 pin FPSMB)
This header allows you to connect SMBus (System Management Bus) equipment. It can
be used for communication between peripheral equipment in the system, which has slower
transmission rates, and power management equipment.
B. Internet status indicator (2-pin LAN1_LED, LAN2_LED)
These two 2-pin headers allow you to use the Gigabit internet indicator cable to connect
to the LAN status indicator. When this indicator flickers, it means that the internet is properly connected.
C. Chassis intrusion pin (2-pin CHASSIS)
This header is provided for host computer chassis with chassis intrusion detection designs.
In addition, it must also work with external detection equipment, such as a chassis intrusion detection sensor or a microswitch. When this function is activated, if any chassis
component movement occurs, the sensor will immediately detect it and send a signal to this
header, and the system will then record this chassis intrusion event. The default setting is
set to the CASEOPEN and GND pin; this function is off.
D. Locator LED (4-pin LOCATOR)
This header is for the locator switch and LED on the front panel.
E. System Fault LED (2-pin LOCATOR)

2.8 Driver Installation Guide
English
To install the drivers to your system, please insert the support CD to your optical
drive first. Then, the drivers compatible to your system can be auto-detected and listed
on the support CD driver page. Please follow the order from top to bottom to install
those required drivers. Therefore, the drivers you install can work properly.

2.9 Dual LAN and Teaming Operation Guide
Dual LAN with Teaming enabled on this motherboard allows two single
connections to act as one single connection for twice the transmission bandwidth,
making data transmission more effective and improving the quality of transmission
of distant images. Fault tolerance on the dual LAN network prevents network
downtime by transferring the workload from a failed port to a working port.
The speed of transmission is subject to the actual network environment or status even with
Teaming enabled.
Before setting up Teaming, please make sure whether your Switch (or Router)
supports Teaming (IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation). You can specify a preferred
adapter in Intel PROSet. Under normal conditions, the Primary adapter handles all
non-TCP/IP traffic. The Secondary adapter will receive fallback traffic if the primary
fails. If the Preferred Primary adapter fails, but is later restored to an active status,
control is automatically switched back to the Preferred Primary adapter.
Step 1
From Device Manager, open the properties of a team.
Step 2
Click the Settings tab.
Step 3
Click the Modify Team button.
Step 4
Select the adapter you want to be the primary adapter and click the Set Primary
button.
If you do not specify a preferred primary adapter, the software will choose an
adapter of the highest capability (model and speed) to act as the default primary. If
a failover occurs, another adapter becomes the primary. The adapter will, however,
rejoin the team as a non-primary.
