UCS Scalable M4 Blade Module w/o CPU/DIMM/HDD for B260 M4
The B260 M4 base server:
■
Does not include CPUs, memory DIMMs, SSDs, HDDs, or mezzanine cards.
NOTE: Use the steps on the following pages to configure the server with
the components that you want to include.
NOTE: The B260 M4 server consists of a Scalable M4 Blade Module and a Scalability
Terminator that plugs into the front of the blade module.
To upgrade from a B260 M4 server to a B460 M4 server:
■
Your current B260 M4 server must be configured with two identical Intel® Xeon® E7-8800 v2
or two identical E7-4800 v2 series processor family CPUs. A B260 M4 with E7-2800 v2 CPUs
cannot be upgraded.
■
Order the upgrade kit (PID UCSB-EX-M4-1E-U), which consists of the following:
■
—
One Scalable M4 Blade Module
—
One Scalability Connector
Configure the new Scalable M4 Blade Module with two Intel Xeon E7-8800 v2 or E7-4800 v2
series processor family CPU that are identical to the two processors in the B260 M4 server to
be upgraded.
NOTE: The two CPUs in the original B260 M4 server and the two CPUs in the Scalable
M4 Blade Module from the upgrade kit must be identical.
■
8
Remove the Scalability Terminator from your original B260 M4. Install the new Scalable M4
Blade Module from the upgrade kit in the chassis slot above or below. Then install the new
Scalability Connector into the front of both blade modules, connecting them together. You
now have a B460 M4 server, consisting of two Scalable M4 Blade Modules ganged together by
the Scalability Connector.

Memory Mode. System speed is dependent on how many DIMMs are populated per channel,
the CPU DIMM speed support, and the BIOS memory mode. The BIOS default memory mode is
performance mode. However, the BIOS can be changed to support lockstep mode.
—
Memory Performance Mode. In this mode, the main memory channel from the CPU
to the memory buffer runs at double the clock rate of each of the two memory
subchannels from the buffer to the DIMMs, and each DIMM subchannel is accessed
sequentially. For example, if the CPU channel clock speed is 2667 MHz, each of the
DIMM subchannels operates at 1333 MHz. For this reason, performance mode is
referred to as 2:1. Performance mode does not provide data protection, but can
yield up to 1.5 times the performance of lockstep mode and is the best choice for
high throughput requirements.
—
Memory Lockstep Mode. In this mode, the main memory channel from the CPU to
the memory buffer runs at the same clock rate of each of the two memory
subchannels from the buffer to the DIMMs, and both DIMM subchannels are accessed
simultaneously for a double-width access. For example, if the CPU channel clock
speed is 1600 MHz, each of the DIMM subchannels operates at 1600 MHz. For this
reason, lockstep mode is referred to as 1:1. Memory lockstep mode provides
protection against both single-bit and multi-bit errors. Memory lockstep lets two
memory channels work as a single channel, moving a data word two channels wide
and providing eight bits of memory correction.

NOTE: There are three slots on the server. One is a dedicated slot for the VIC
1340/1240 adapter only and the other two accommodate Cisco or Cisco Storage
Accelerator adapters as well as other options. Table 10 shows which adapters plug
into each of the three slots. Only the VIC 1340 or 1240 adapter plugs into the VIC
1340/1240 adapter slot. All other adapters plug into the other two mezzanine
adapter slots.
NOTE: You must have a B260 M4 configured with 2 CPUs to support cards that plug
into either of the two mezzanine connectors. The VIC 1340 and 1240 adapters are
supported on both 1- and 2-CPU configured systems.

ORDER A TRUSTED PLATFORM MODULE (OPTIONAL)
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 14.

inserted and removed (see the following figure).
See Figure 5 on page 40 for the location of the USB connector.
NOTE: When the Cisco 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.

Combined Services makes it easier to purchase and manage required services under one
contract. SMARTnet services for UCS help increase the availability of your vital data center
infrastructure and realize the most value from your unified computing investment. The more
benefits you realize from the Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS), the more important
the technology becomes to your business. These services allow you to:
■
Optimize the uptime, performance, and efficiency of your UCS
■
Protect your vital business applications by rapidly identifying and addressing issues
■
Strengthen in-house expertise through knowledge transfer and mentoring
■
Improve operational efficiency by allowing UCS experts to augment your internal staff
resources
■
Enhance business agility by diagnosing potential issues before they affect your operations
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 24, Table 25, or
Table 26.
NOTE: Cisco does not offer a certified drive destruction service as part of this
service.

Memory Population Recommendations
See Table 5 on page 13 for information on DIMM population guidelines.
When considering the memory configuration of your server, you should observe the following:
44
■
Your selected CPU(s) can have some effect on performance. All CPUs in the server must be
of the same type.
■
Performance degradation can result from unevenly populating DIMMs between CPUs

Network Connectivity
This section shows how the supported adapter card configurations for the B260 M4 connect to the Fabric
Extender modules in the 5108 blade server chassis.
There are three configurable adapter slots on the B260 M4. One slot supports only the VIC 1340/1240
adapter, and two additional slots accommodate Cisco adapters, as well as Cisco UCS Storage Accelerator
adapters. Table 12 on page 24 shows supported adapter configurations. You must install at least one VIC or
CNA adapter in one of the three adapter slots.
“Adapter 1,” “Adapter 2,” and “Adapter 3” refer to the UCSM naming convention for the adapter slots (this
document uses the UCSM naming convention). In the server BIOS and on the motherboard, the
corresponding slots are labeled as “mLOM,” “Mezz 1,” and “Mezz 2,” respectively. See Table 29.

VIC 1340/1240 and Port Expander
Adapter slot 1 is dedicated to the VIC 1340/1240 adapter, and no other adapter card can be installed in this
slot. There are two groups of four ports on the VIC 1340/1240:
■
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 adapter slot 2. The VIC 1340/1240 adapter
senses the type of adapter installed in adapter slot 2. If a Port Expander is installed in
adapter slot 2, the four 10G KR ports between the adapters are used for port expansion;
otherwise they are unused.
With the Port Expander installed, there are up to eight (depending on the Fabric Extender installed) 10 Gb
network interfaces, as represented in Figure 9.
