1. If higher or lower speed DIMMs are selected than what is shown in the table for a given CPU, the DIMMs will be
clocked at the lowest common denominator of CPU clock and DIMM clock.
2. 1866-MHz DIMMs are supported only with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 CPUs
Supported Configurations
(1) One-CPU Configuration
■
Choose one CPU from any one of the rows of Table 3 on page 9.
(2) Two-CPU Configuration
■
Choose two identical CPUs from any one of the rows of Table 3 on page 9.
Caveats
■
The B200 M3 configured with 1 CPU provides limited network connectivity options. The
following restrictions apply:
—
10
A virtual interface card (VIC), the VIC 1340 or 1240, must always be installed in the
VIC 1240 mezzanine connector.
Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server
CONFIGURING the SERVER
—
The connectivity options are:
• VIC 1340 or 1240 installed in VIC 1340/1240 slot and no adapter installed in the
mezzanine slot
• VIC 1340 or 1240 installed in VIC 1340/1240 slot and a Port Expander Card
installed in the mezzanine slot.
■
See NEBS Compliance on page 50 for complete information on network connectivity
support for a B200 M3 configured with 1 CPU or 2 CPUs.
■
For optimal performance, select DIMMs with the highest clock speed for a given processor.
■
System speed is dependent on how many DIMMs are populated per channel. See Table 8 on
page 16 for details.

DIMMs
—
Clock speed: 1866, 1600, or 1333 MHz
—
Ranks per DIMM: 1, 2, or 4
—

—
Registered
■
DDR3 ECC registered DIMMs (RDIMMs) or load-reduced DIMMS (LRDIMMS)
■
Memory is organized with four memory channels per CPU, with up to three DIMMs per
channel (DPC), as shown in Figure 3. Maximum memory capacity is 768 GB (B200 M3
configured with 2 CPUs with 32 GB DIMMs).
UCS B200 M3 Memory Organization
Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server
CONFIGURING the SERVER
Choose DIMMs and Memory Mirroring
Select the memory configuration and whether or not you want the memory mirroring option.
The supported memory DIMMs and the mirroring option are listed in Table 4.
NOTE: When memory mirroring is enabled, the memory subsystem simultaneously
writes identical data to two adjacent channels. If a memory read from one of the
channels returns incorrect data due to an uncorrectable memory error, the system
automatically retrieves the data from the other channel. A transient or soft error in
one channel does not affect the mirrored data, and operation continues unless there
is a simultaneous error in exactly the same location on a DIMM and its mirrored
DIMM. Memory mirroring reduces the amount of memory available to the operating
system by 50% because only one of the two populated channels provides data.
The supported memory DIMMs in the UCS B200 M3 are listed in Table 4.

1. NA = not applicable
2. These DIMMs operate at 1333 MHz instead of 1600 MHz when used with any E5-2600 CPUs. They operate at 1600
MHz when used with E5-2600 v2 CPUs that support 1600- and 1866-MHz speeds.
3. For E5-2600 v2 CPUs, 8-GB 1600-MHz DIMMs at 3 DIMMs per channel currently are set to operate at 1066 MHz
instead of 1333 MHz
4. 1866-MHz DIMMs are only offered and supported with E5-2600 v2 CPU-configured servers
■
For optimum performance, do not mix DIMMs with different frequencies. If you mix DIMM
frequencies, the system defaults to the lower frequency.
■
Do not mix RDIMMs with LRDIMMs
■
DIMMs for CPU 1 and CPU 2 (when populated) must always be configured identically.
■
Memory mirroring reduces the amount of available memory by 50% (quantity of DIMMs must
be even for mirroring).
■
By default, starting with UCSM 2.0.4, DIMMs run in memory performance mode (1.5v) by
BIOS default, which yields faster memory speeds than when the BIOS is set for the memory
to run in power-savings mode. Memory speed is dependent on factors such as:
—
16
CPU choice
Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server
CONFIGURING the SERVER
—
DIMM choice
—
DIMM population (how many DIMMs per channel are populated)
—
BIOS setting.
For the DIMMs to run in power-savings mode (1.35 V, if the DIMM supports this), change
the BIOS setting to power-savings mode.
■
With 3 RDIMMs populated per channel, memory always runs at 1.5 V regardless if the BIOS
setting is power-savings mode (1.35 V) or performance mode (1.5 V).
■
With 3 LRDIMMs populated per channel, memory can operate at 1.5 V or 1.35 V, depending
on the BIOS setting.
For more information regarding memory, see CPUs and DIMMs on page 39.

ORDER A TRUSTED PLATFORM MODULE
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a computer chip (microcontroller) that can securely store
artifacts used to authenticate the platform (server). These artifacts can include passwords,
certificates, or encryption keys. A TPM can also be used to store platform measurements that
help ensure that the platform remains trustworthy. Authentication (ensuring that the platform
can prove that it is what it claims to be) and attestation (a process helping to prove that a
platform is trustworthy and has not been breached) are necessary steps to ensure safer
computing in all environments.
The TPM ordering information is listed in Table 13.

NOTE: A clearance of 0.950 inches (24.1 mm) is required for the USB device to be
inserted and removed (see the following figure).
See Figure 5 on page 38 for the location of the USB connector.
NOTE: When the Cisco 4GB USB key is purchased with a server, it is pre-installed
into the internal USB port and held firmly in place with a clip to protect it from
shock and vibration during shipment and transportation. This clip also prevents the
USB key from undergoing shock and vibration during ongoing customer operational
use.

Unified Computing Drive Retention Service
With the Cisco Unified Computing Drive Retention (UCDR) Service, you can obtain a new disk
drive in exchange for a faulty drive without returning the faulty drive. In exchange for a Cisco
replacement drive, you provide a signed Certificate of Destruction (CoD) confirming that the
drive has been removed from the system listed, is no longer in service, and has been destroyed.
Sophisticated data recovery techniques have made classified, proprietary, and confidential
information vulnerable, even on malfunctioning disk drives. The UCDR service enables you to
retain your drives and ensures that the sensitive data on those drives is not compromised, which
reduces the risk of any potential liabilities. This service also enables you to comply with
regulatory, local, and federal requirements.
If your company has a need to control confidential, classified, sensitive, or proprietary data, you
might want to consider one of the Drive Retention Services listed in Table 23.
NOTE: Cisco does not offer a certified drive destruction service as part of this
service.

DIMM Population Rules
When considering the memory configuration of your server, you should take into account the following:
■
For optimum performance, populate at least one DIMM per memory channel per CPU.
■
Do not mix RDIMMs with LRDIMMs.
■
Each channel has three DIMM slots (for example, channel A = slots A0, A1, and A2).
■
■
—
A channel can operate with one, two, or three DIMMs installed.
—
If a channel has only one DIMM, populate slot 0 first (the blue slot).
When both CPUs are installed, populate the DIMM slots of each CPU identically.
—
Fill bank 0 blue slots in the channels first: A0, E0, B0, F0, C0, G0, D0, H0
—
Fill bank 1 black slots in the channels second: A1, E1, B1, F1, C1, G1, D1, H1
—
Fill bank 2 white slots in the channels third: A2, E2, B2, F2, C2, G2, D2, H2
Observe the DIMM rules shown in Table 25

RDIMM = 16, 8, or 4 GB
DIMMs in the same channel (for
example, A0, A1, A2) can have
different capacities.
For best performance, DIMMs in the

C0, D0) should have the same
capacity.
LRDIMM = 32 GB
You cannot mix 32 GB LRDIMMs with
any RDIMM.
You cannot mix 32 GB LRDIMMs with

This section explains the recommended DIMM population order rules for the B200 M3 server.
■
All DIMMs must be DDR3 DIMMs.
■
Do not mix:
—
DIMMs with different clock rates in a channel
—

■
There are blue, black, and white DIMM slots. Populate the blue slots first.
■
When single- and dual-rank DIMMs are populated for 2DPC, always populate the dual-rank
DIMM in the blue DIMM slot and the single-rank DIMM in the black DIMM slot.
Many memory configurations are possible. For best results, follow Table 27 when populating 1866- and
1600-MHz DIMMs for Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 CPUs and Table 28 on page 44 when populating 1600-MHz DIMMs
for Intel Xeon E5-2600 CPUs.
NOTE: These tables list only some recommended and suggested configurations.
There are numerous other possible configurations supported by Cisco. Cisco supports
all mixing and population configurations of the Cisco DIMMs as long as the mixing
does not violate the few fundamental rules noted in this document.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL
Adding an Additional CPU (with CPU heat sink)
All Cisco UCS two CPU socket-capable servers can be upgraded from having one to having two CPUs
configured. You will need to order and install a heat sink when adding any additional CPU to a server.
Instructions for installing the new CPU and heat sink can be found at the following link:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/hw/chassis/install/B200M3.html#wp1070500
Motherboard Lithium Battery
You can order a replacement motherboard battery. Installation instructions are found at this link:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/hw/chassis/install/B200M3.html#wp1034829
CPU Removal and Installation (“pick n place”) Tool Set
The Pick n Place tool set is used to install a CPU in its socket without damage. It must be used each time a
CPU is installed in a UCS “M3” server.
Instructions for using this tool set are found at the following link:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/hw/chassis/install/B200M3.html#wp1070500
NOTE: When you purchase a spare CPU, the Pick n Place Toolkit is included.
Thermal Grease (with syringe applicator) for CPU to Heatsink Seal
Thermal grease must be applied to the top of the CPU where it comes in contact with the heat sink.
Instructions for applying thermal grease are found at:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/unified_computing/ucs/hw/chassis/install/B200M3.html#wp1070500
CAUTION: Use only the thermal grease specified for this server
(UCS-CPU-GREASE=). This thermal grease comes in a blue-tipped syringe
and is to be used in all servers except the C220 M3 and C240 M3 servers,
which use thermal grease in a red-tipped syringe (UCS-CPU-GREASE2=).
Thermal grease in the red-tipped syringe is only to be used for the C220
M3 and C240 M3 servers and has different thermal conductivity
properties, which may cause overheating if used in the B200 M3 server.
Likewise, thermal grease in the blue-tipped syringe is only to be used for
all UCS servers other than the C220 M3 and C240 M3 (such as the B200 M3
server) and has different thermal conductivity properties, which may
cause overheating if used in the C220 M3 and C240 M3 servers.
DO NOT use thermal grease available for purchase at any commercial
electronics store. If these instructions are not followed, the CPU may
overheat and be destroyed.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL
Network Connectivity
This section explains how the UCS B200 M3 server connects to Fabric Interconnects using the network
adapters in the UCS B200 M3 blade server and the Fabric Extender modules in the UCS 5108 blade server
chassis. The UCS B200 M3 server plugs into the front of the UCS 5108 blade server chassis. The Fabric
Extender modules plug into the back of the UCS 5108 series blade server chassis. A midplane connects the
UCS B200 M3 blade server to the Fabric Extenders. Figure 8 shows an example configuration where 2 x 10G
KR ports are routed from the VIC 1340 or 1240 adapter to the Fabric Extender modules and the remaining 2
x 10G KR ports are routed from the mezzanine adapter to the Fabric Extender modules.
Figure 8
UCS B200 M3 Connections to the Fabric Extenders
The server accommodates two types of network adapters. One is the Cisco VIC 1340 or 1240 adapter. The
other is a Cisco adapter, Emulex or QLogic I/O adapter, or Cisco Storage Accelerator adapter. The VIC
1340/1240 is the only adapter that can be used in the VIC 1340/1240 slot. All other types of adapters plug
into the mezzanine slot.
Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server
51
SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL
The network adapter options are:
■
Cisco VIC 1340 or adapter. This adapter plugs into the VIC 1340/1240 slot and is natively
capable of 4x10Gb ports and 256 PCIe devices. The capabilities of the adapter can easily be
expanded by using the Port Expander Card in the mezzanine slot.
■
Cisco VIC 1380 or 1280 Mezzanine adapter. This adapter plugs into the mezzanine slot and is
capable of 4x10Gb ports in the UCS B200 M3 server, depending on the Fabric Extender
chosen (see Table 12 on page 23) and 256 PCIe devices.
■
Cisco Port Expander Card. This I/O expander plugs into the mezzanine slot and enables full
second-generation VIC functionality with the VIC 1340 or 1240. Using the Port Expander Card
with the VIC 1340 or 1240 allows you to have 8 ports of 10Gb each (depending on the Fabric
Extender option chosen - see Table 12 on page 23).
■
QLogic and Emulex adapters
■
Cisco Storage Accelerators. These flash storage devices do not have network connectivity;
instead they provide independent high-speed storage controlled by CPU 2. See Table 10 on
page 21 for descriptions.
NOTE: The bandwidth/port count on these adapters depends on the Fabric
Extender. For example, the VIC 1380 or 1280 only supports up to 4x10Gb in this blade
because each mezzanine slot (or VIC 1340 or 1240 slot) only supports up to 4x10Gb.
VIC 1340/1240 Adapter
The only adapter that can be plugged in to the VIC 1340 or 1240 slot is the VIC 1340 or 1240, Cisco-designed
PCIe based adapters that provide up to eight (depending on the Fabric Extender option chosen) 10 Gigabit
Data Center Ethernet (DCE) network interfaces.
There are two groups of four ports on the VIC 1340 or 1240. Two ports of the first group and two ports of the
second group are wired through the UCS 5108 Blade Server chassis to Fabric Extender A and Fabric Extender
B. The other two ports of each group are wired to the mezzanine slot, as represented in Figure 9.
52
Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Server
SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL
Figure 9
VIC 1340/1240 Port Connectivity
The number of ports available at the mezzanine adapter depends on the type of mezzanine adapter that is
plugged into the mezzanine slot on the system board. The maximum number of ports is four. The VIC 1340
or 1240 senses the type of adapter plugged into the mezzanine slot. In the event a Port Expander Card
occupies the mezzanine slot, the four 10G KR ports between the adapters are used for port expansion;
otherwise, they are unused.
Mezzanine Adapters
There are multiple options for the mezzanine slot:
■
I/O-based PCIe adapters (such as network adapters), or
■
Cisco Storage Accelerator adapters (such as Fusion-io and LSI cache cards)
NOTE: In a B200 M3 configured with 2 CPUs, if a UCS B200 M3 blade server does not
have a VIC 1340 or 1240 installed, the mezzanine slot is required to have a QLogic or
Emulex I/O adapter installed to provide I/O connectivity. In a B200 M3 configured
with 1 CPU, however, a VIC 1340 or 1240 must always be installed.
Specific examples of mezzanine adapters are:

The following sections explain the various I/O options that are possible with the different Fabric Extenders
(Cisco UCS 2208XP, 2204XP, and 2104XP) and the VIC 1340 or 1240 and mezzanine adapters.
B200 M3 Configured with 1 CPU
In a B200 M3 configured with 1 CPU, the mezzanine card slot is not under the control of a CPU (in a B200 M3
configured with 2 CPUs, CPU 2 controls the slot). Therefore, the only adapter that can be placed in the
mezzanine slot in a B200 M3 configured with 1 CPU is the Cisco UCS Port Expander Card, and the VIC 1340 or
1240 is always required to be installed in the VIC 1340/1240 slot.
Connectivity using the Cisco UCS 2304 Fabric Extender
The Cisco UCS 2304 is the third-generation Fabric Extender, and shares the same form factor as the current
UCS 2100 series. The 2304 is backwards compatible with the UCS 5108 Blade server chassis.
The options shown in Figure 10 and Figure 11 demonstrate how the server uses these options:
■
VIC 1340 or 1240 to 2304
■
VIC 1240 plus Port Expander Card to 2304
In Figure 10, two ports from the VIC 1340 or 1240 are channeled to 2304 Fabric Extender A and two are
channeled to 2304 Fabric Extender B. The result is 20 Gbps of bandwidth to each Fabric Extender.
