Server configurations
The SR950 supports five different configurations, depending on the desired number of processors, drive
bays, PCIe slots, and upgradability to an 8-socket configuration.
Notes:
The configurations listed here represent Lenovo's recommendations regarding the selection of
compute system boards, I/O riser cards, and NVMe drive bays to maximize the available resources.
You can select fewer drives and lower slot counts by using lower-slot-count riser cards to meet
application requirements.
Configurations 1 and 3 support the use of only two processors. This will reduce the available I/O
slots and NVMe drive bays. This is described in details in the Internal storage section and the I/O
expansion options section.
Configuration 1 supports either two or four processors however the use 5100 Series processors
requires that four processors be selected. Two 5100 Series processors are not supported in

For more information about the standard features of the server, see the Standard specifications section.
Processor options
The SR950 supports the Gold and Platinum level processors in the Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family,
including the "top bin" highest performing 205 W processors available from Intel.
The server supports up to four or eight processors, depending on the configuration selected, however
processors are all installed within the 4U rack enclosure:
For configurations that support up to eight processors, the server supports 2, 4 or 8 processors.
(There is no support for 6-processor configurations.)
For configurations of up to four processors (lower cost configuration, no upgrade path to eight
processors), the server supports 2 or 4 processors

As described in the Components and connectors section, processors and memory are located on
compute system boards - two processors per board. Two system boards are installed in a compute tray,
and there are two compute trays in the server.
For configurations with only one compute tray, you can upgrade to add a second compute tray. You can
also add additional system boards as needed. The ordering information for these upgrades is listed in the
following table.

The table below lists the supported processors. The table indicates which processors support 8-socket
configurations and whether the processors support memory capacities greater than 768 GB per processor.
All processors listed support:
Hyper-Threading Technology
Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
The table also lists the number of UltraPath Interconnect (UPI) ports each processor has. UPI ports are
used to connect processors together for high-speed communications.
When a processor has 3 UPI ports, it can be used in a 4-socket mesh configuration where all
processors are directly connected to every other processor. 5100 Series processors do not support
mesh topology, since they only have 2 UPI ports.
When a processor has only 2 UPI ports, it can only be used in a 4-socket ring configuration where
all processors are connected to the 2 adjacent processors and the fourth processor is only
connected indirectly via another processor.
The mesh and ring topologies are shown in the following figure.

Memory options
The SR950 uses Lenovo TruDDR4 memory operating at up to 2666 MHz. The server supports 12 DIMMs
per processor, which corresponds to 48 DIMMs with four processors installed and 96 DIMMs when eight
processors are installed. Each processor has six memory channels with two DIMMs per channel. With 128
GB 3DS RDIMMs installed, an 8-socket server supports a total of 12 TB of system memory.
As described in the Components and connectors section, the memory is installed on compute system
boards and there are two system boards per compute tray and one or two compute trays per server,
depending on the configuration.
All DIMMs operate at a speed of 2666 MHz, both at 1 DIMM per channel and 2 DIMMs per channel.
However, if the processor selected has a lower memory bus speed (eg 2400 MHz), then all DIMMs will
operate at that lower speed.
The following table lists the memory options that are available for SR950.
Lenovo TruDDR4 memory uses the highest quality components that are sourced from Tier 1 DRAM
suppliers and only memory that meets the strict requirements of Lenovo is selected. It is compatibility
tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability. From a service and support standpoint, Lenovo
TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system warranty, and Lenovo provides service and support
worldwide.

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:
The server supports RDIMMs, LRDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs. UDIMMs are not supported.
Mixing RDIMMs and LRDIMMs is not supported.
Mixing 3DS RDIMMs with either RDIMMs or LRDIMMs is not supported.
Lenovo ThinkSystem SR950 Server
24
Mixing x4 and x8 DIMMs is supported.
For best performance, consider the following:
Populate memory DIMMs in quantities of 6 or 12 per processor, so that all memory channels are
used.
When mixing 16 GB and 32 GB DIMMs in the same configuration, use 16GB 2Rx8 DIMMs instead
of 16 GB 1Rx4 DIMMs for better performance.
Populate memory channels so they all have the same total memory capacity
Ensure all memory controllers on a processor socket have the same DIMM configuration.
All processor sockets on the same physical server should have the same DIMM configuration.
The following memory protection technologies are supported:
ECC
Chipkill (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
Adaptive double-device data correction (ADDDC)
Memory mirroring
Memory rank sparing
If memory channel mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs or sets of three (minimum of
one pair or set of three per processor), and all DIMMs in the pair or set of three must be identical in type
and size. 50% of the installed capacity is available to the operating system.
If memory rank sparing is used, then a minimum of two single-rank or dual-rank DIMMs must be installed
per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM
in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The largest rank in the channel will be
automatically selected as the spare rank. The amount of memory available to the operating system
depends on the number, capacity and rank counts of the DIMMs installed.
Internal storage
The SR950 offers up to 24x 2.5-inch drive bays, depending on the server configuration selected (as
described in Server configurations). The server also supports either one or two M.2 drives, installed in an
M.2 adapter.
In this section:

Backplanes and drive bays
Drives are all located at the front of the server, 12 drives at the front of the upper tray and 12 at the front
of the lower tray. Drives are connect to 4-drive backplanes in a 2-by-2 configuration, as shown in the
following figure. All drive bays are 2.5-inch form factor.

Figure 11. Location of backplanes
There are two different backplanes available for the SR950:
SAS/SATA backplane: Supports 4 SAS or SATA drives
AnyBay backplane:
Top two drives support SAS, SATA, or NVMe interface drives (Lenovo AnyBay)
Bottom two drive bays support SAS or SATA drives only
Regular 2.5-inch SAS/SATA drive bays support only SAS or SATA drives; however, the Lenovo AnyBay
drive bay design allows a choice of SATA, SAS, or U.2 (NVMe) PCIe drives. This design enables the
flexibility to configure some of the bays with high-performance PCIe SSDs while still using the other bays
for high-capacity HDDs, which is an ideal solution for storage-tiering.

Backplane connections are as follows:
The 4-drive SAS/SATA backplane has one SAS/SATA connector and connects to a supported RAID
controller or SAS HBA installed in the dedicated storage adapter slot.
The 4-drive AnyBay backplane has one SAS/SATA connector and connects to a supported RAID
controller or SAS HBA plus one NVMe connector to connect to NVMe ports on one of the system
boards in a compute tray or directly on the storage tray.
Ths SAS/SATA backplane is shown in the following figure.
Figure 12. SAS/SATA backplane
Adapters and cabling
Each compute tray or storage tray includes one dedicated PCIe slot for a RAID adapter or SAS HBA.
Tip: The adapters are described in detail in the Controllers for internal storage section.
SAS/SATA backplanes are connected to the RAID adapter or HBA installed in the dedicated slot in that
tray. AnyBay backplanes (NVMe support on 2 of the 4 drive bays) are connected to the RAID adapter or
HBA or to an NVMe port adjacent to processor on a system board.
The following table lists which processor each SAS/SATA storage adapter and which NVMe port each
backplane is connected to.

M.2 drives
The server supports one or two M.2 form-factor SATA drives for use as an operating system boot solution.
With two M.2 drives configured, the drives are configured by default as a RAID-1 mirrored pair for
redundancy.
The M.2 drives install into an M.2 adapter which in turn is installed in a dedicated slot on the system
board. See the internal view of the server in the Components and connectors section for the location of
the M.2 slot.
There are two M.2 adapters supported:
Single M.2 Boot Adapter, which supports one M.2 drive; available as ThinkSystem M.2 Enablement
Kit, 7Y37A01092
Dual M.2 Boot Adapter, which supports one or two M.2 drives; available as ThinkSystem M.2 with
Mirroring Enablement Kit, 7Y37A01093
A Dual M.2 Boot Adapter with one 128GB M.2 drive partially inserted is shown in the following figure. The
second M.2 drive is installed on the other side of the adapter.

Features of the Dual M.2 Boot Adapter:
PCIe 2.0 x2 host interface (connects to the PCH)
Based on the Marvell 88SE9230 6 Gbps SATA controller
Supports two 6 Gbps SATA M.2 drives (it is not supported to have only one drive installed)
Supports 3 different physical sizes of M.2 drives: 42mm (2242), 60mm (2260) and 80mm (2280)*
RAID functionality provided by the M.2 adapter
RAID 1 by default; also supports RAID 0 and JBOD
UEFI-based settings to enable/disable RAID mode and to review inventory
Adapter and drive firmware update using Lenovo firmware tools
Management via I2C interface
* 2242, 2260 and 2280 are the industry terms for the M.2 drive dimensions. For example, 2280
corresponds to a drive that is 22mm wide and 80mm long.

* These drive options do not have power-loss capacitors, which means they do not have protection against
a potential loss of data when a write operation is underway just as a power outage occurs. As a result,
these drives are not recommended for general purpose storage functions.
Controllers for internal storage
The SR950 supports internal SAS and SATA drives with the addition of a RAID adapter or HBA. The
adapter is installed in a dedicated slot in each compute tray. For NVMe support, the server uses NVMe
ports that are on the compute system boards or on the storage tray if one is configured.
The following table lists the supported adapters.
Tip: Unlike System x RAID adapters, no upgrades are available for these RAID adapters. All supported
functions are included with the base part numbers.

Network adapters
The SR950 has an integrated 10Gb Ethernet controller, based on the Intel Ethernet Connection X722. The
X722 has the following features:
Integrated into the Intel PCH chipset
Supports 1GbE or 10GbE connections, depending on the selected LOM Phy adapter
Offers VXLAN/NVGRE hardware offloads
Supports VMDq and SR-IOV for advanced virtualization
Supports iWarp RDMA
Lenovo ThinkSystem SR950 Server
37
To provide connectivity to the X722, the SR950 supports six different LOM (LAN on Motherboard) cards
which provide the Ethernet PHY function. Only 1 LOM card can be installed. See Figure 3 for the location
of the LOM slot.
The LOM card supports NC-SI to allow the network connection to be shared between the operating
system and the XClarity Controller (XCC) management module. The LOM also supports Wake-on-LAN
(WOL).
For more information about the X722 controller, see the Lenovo Press product guide:
http://lenovopress.com/lp0654-intel-x722-integrated-controller
The following table lists the supported LOM cards.
Note: None of the LOM cards listed in the table support speeds lower than 1 Gbps.

GPU adapters and coprocessors
Full-length adapter cards such as graphics processing units (GPUs) do not physically fit in the server and

Cooling
Lenovo ThinkSystem SR950 Server
45
Cooling
The SR950 uses a set of 60mm hot-swap single-rotor fans for system-wide cooling. Each compute tray or
storage tray houses 6 hot-swap fans. The 6 fans in the compute tray are N+1 redundant, meaning that a
single fan failure is tolerated in each compute tray.
Fans are located internal to the server immediately in front of the compute system boards, but are
accessible from the front of the server by the long handle attached to the fan. As the handle is pulled out,
the attached fan rotates from vertical orientation to horizontal orientation, allowing the fan to be removed
from the system using the handle, as shown below.
Figure 18. Six fans installed in each compute tray (lower compute tray shown)
Power supplies
The server supports up to four redundant hot-swap power supplies. Power supplies are N+N redundant,
meaning that the server can continue operation even with two failed power supplies, or if the utility service
that feeds two power supplies goes offline.
All four power supplies installed in a server must be identical.

The 1100W power supply is auto-sensing and supports both 110V AC (100-127V 50/60 Hz) and 220V AC
(200-240V 50/60 Hz) power. The 1600 W power supply only supports 220V AC power. 240V DC is not
supported.
Note: At 110 V, the 1100W power supply generates 1050W of power.
Power supply options do not include a power cord. For models of the SR950, the inclusion of a power
cords is model dependent. Configure-to-order models can be configured without a power cord if desired.
General recommendations:
1100W PSU
2x 1100W power supplies = 1100W redundant: Good for two-socket configurations and
four-socket configurations with lower-power processors (TDP < 165W)
4x 1100W power supplies = 2200W redundant: Good for all four-socket configurations (with
high-power PCIe adapters) and eight-socket configurations with lower-power processors
(TDP < 165W)
1100W powers supplies are suitable for 110V utility power as well as 220V power.
1600W PSU
2x 1600W power supplies = 1600W redundant: Recommended for four-socket
configurations with higher power processors (TDP > 165W)
4x 1600W = 3200W redundant: Recommended for 8-socket configurations with processors
165W and higher
Note: 1600W is 220V utility power only; no support for 110V
Use the Power Configurator to determine exactly what power your server needs:

the server to help you diagnose the problem and find the failing part. The SR950 has fault LEDs next to the
following components:
Each processor
Each memory DIMM
Each system fan
Each power supply
Each rear-facing PCIe slot
Each drive bay
For local console use, the SR950 has both a front and rear VGA port. Only one can be active at a time. If
displays are connected to both VGA ports, the front VGA port takes precedence.
System status with XClarity Mobile
The XClarity Mobile app now includes a tethering function where you can connect your Android or iOS
device to the server via USB to see the status of the server.
The steps to connect the mobile device are as follows:
1. Enable USB Management on the server, by holding down the ID button for 3 seconds (or pressing
the dedicated USB management button if one is present)
2. Connect the mobile device via a USB cable to the server's USB port with the management symbol
3. In iOS or Android settings, enable Personal Hotspot or USB Tethering

License for XClarity Energy Manager
Lenovo XClarity Administrator
Lenovo XClarity Administrator is a centralized resource management solution designed to reduce
complexity, speed response, and enhance the availability of Lenovo systems and solutions.
Lenovo XClarity Administrator provides agent-free hardware management for ThinkSystem servers, in
addition to ThinkServer, System x, and Flex System servers. The administration dashboard is based on
HTML 5 and allows fast location of resources so tasks can be run quickly.
Because Lenovo XClarity Administrator does not require any agent software to be installed on the
managed endpoints, there are no CPU cycles spent on agent execution, and no memory is used, which
means that up to 1GB of RAM and 1 - 2% CPU usage is saved, compared to a typical managed system
where an agent is required.
Lenovo XClarity Administrator provides full management function to ThinkSystem servers, including the
following:
Discovery
Inventory
Monitoring and alerting
Call home
Centralized user management
Cryptography modes, server certificates, and encapsulation
Configuration patterns
Operating system deployment
Firmware updates
For more information about Lenovo XClarity Administrator, including ordering part numbers, see the
