Serverboard Features
At the heart of the SuperServer 6023P-i lies the X5DPi-G2, a dual Intel Xeon
processor serverboard designed to provide maximum performance. Below
are the main features of the X5DPi-G2.
Chipset
The Intel E7501 chipset is a high-performance chipset with a performance
and feature-set designed for mid-range, dual processor servers. The
E7501 chipset consists of four major components: the Memory Controller
Hub (MCH), the I/O Controller Hub 3 (ICH3), the PCI-X 64-bit Hub 2.0 (P64H2)
and the 82808AA Host Channel Adapter (VxB). See Figure 1-1 for a block
diagram of the chipset.
The MCH has four hub interfaces, one to communicate with the ICH3 and
three for high-speed I/O communications. The MCH employs a 144-bit wide
memory bus for a DDR-266 memory interface, which provides a total bandwidth of 4.2 GB/s (3.2 GB/s for DDR-200). The ICH3 interface is a 266 MB/sec
point-to-point connection using an 8-bit wide, 66 MHz base clock at a 4x data
transfer rate. The P64H2 interface is a 1 GB/s point-to-point connection using
a 16-bit wide, 66 MHz base clock at a 8x data transfer rate.
The ICH3 I/O Controller Hub provides various integrated functions, including
a two-channel UDMA100 bus master IDE controller, USB host controllers, a
System Management Bus controller and an AC'97 compliant interface.
The P64H2 PCI-X Hub provides a 16-bit connection to the MCH for highperformance IO capability and two 64-bit PCI-X interfaces.
Processors
The X5DPi-G2 supports single or dual Intel Xeon 512K L2 cache processors
of up to 3.20 GHz at a 533/400 MHz FSB. Please refer to the support section

Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer
6023P-i 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 SuperServer 6023P-i 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 SuperServer 6023P-i
You should inspect the box the SuperServer 6023P-i 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 SuperServer
6023P-i. 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 SuperServer 6023P-i 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.
2-1
SUPERSERVER 6023P-i Manual
Choosing a Setup Location:
- Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open
the front door completely (~25 inches).
Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack
-
to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.
!
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.
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 hard drives and power supply units to cool before
touching them.
- Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on
the servers closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.

Installing the SuperServer 6023P-i into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the SuperServer 6023P-i
into a rack unit. If the 6023P-i has already been mounted into a rack,
you can skip ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6. There are a variety of rack
units on the market, which may mean the assembly procedure will differ
slightly. The following is a guideline for installing the 6023P-i into a rack
with the rack rails provided.
You should also refer to the installation
instructions that came with the rack unit you are using.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails:
You should have received two rack rail assemblies with the SuperServer
6023P-i. Each of these assemblies consist of three sections: an inner
fixed chassis rail that secures to the 6023P-i (A) and an outer fixed rack
rail that secures directly to the rack itself (B). A sliding rail guide sandwiched between the two should remain attached to the fixed rack rail.
(See Figure 2-1.) The A and B rails must be detached from each other to
install.
To remove the fixed chassis rail (A), pull it out as far as possible - you
should hear a "click" sound as a locking tab emerges from inside the rail
assembly and locks the inner rail. Then depress the locking tab to pull
the inner rail completely out. Do this for both the left and right side rack
rail assemblies.
Figure 2-1.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails
2-3
SUPERSERVER 6023P-i Manual
Installing the Chassis Rails:
Position the fixed chassis rail sections you just removed along the side
of the 6023P-i making sure the screw holes line up. Note that these
two rails are left/right specific. Screw the rail securely to the side of the
chassis (see Figure 2-2). Repeat this procedure for the other rail on the
other side of the chassis.
You will also need to attach the rail brackets
when installng into a telco rack.
Locking Tabs: As you have seen, both chassis rails have a locking tab,
which serves two functions.
The first is to lock the server into place
when installed and pushed fully into the rack, which is its normal position.
Secondly, these tabs also lock the server in place when fully extended
from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely out of
the rack when you pull it out for servicing.
Figure 2-2.
Installing Chassis Rails
Installing the Rack Rails:
Determine where you want to place the SuperServer 6023P-i in the rack.
(See Rack and Server Precautions in Section 2-3.) Position the fixed rack
rail/sliding rail guide assemblies at the desired location in the rack, keeping
the sliding rail guide facing the inside of the rack. Screw the assembly
securely to the rack using the brackets provided. Attach the other assem-
2-4
Chapter 2: Server Installation
bly to the other side of the rack, making sure both are at the exact same height
and with the rail guides facing inward.
Installing the Server into the Rack:
You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack
unit.
The next step is to install the server into the rack.
Do this by
lining up the rear of the chassis rails with the front of the rack rails.
Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on
both sides (you may have to depress the locking tabs when inserting).
See Figure 2-3.
When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should
hear the locking tabs "click". Finish by inserting and tightening the
thumbscrews that hold the front of the server to the rack.

SUPERSERVER 6023P-i Manual
Installing the Server into a Telco Rack:
If you are installing the SuperServer 6023P-i into a Telco type rack, follow
the directions given on the previous pages for rack installation. The only
difference in the installation procedure will be the positioning of the rack
brackets to the rack. They should be spaced apart just enough to
accommodate the width of the telco rack.

Checking the Serverboard Setup
After you install the 6023P-i in the rack, you will need to open the unit to
make sure the motherboard is properly installed and all the connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the inside of the 6023P-i (see Figure 2-5):
First, release the retention screws that secure the unit to the rack.
Grasp the two handles on either side and pull the unit straight out until it
locks (you will hear a "click"). Next, depress the two buttons on the top
of the chassis to release the top cover. There is a large rectangular
recess in the middle front of the top cover to help you push the cover
away from you until it stops. You can then lift the top cover from the
chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.
2. Check the CPUs (processors):
You should have one or two processors already installed into the
serverboard. Each processor needs its own heatsink. See Chapter 5
for instructions on processor and heatsink installation.
3. Check the system memory:
Your 6023P-i server system may have come with system memory already installed. Make sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots. For
details on adding system memory, refer to Chapter 5.
4. Installing add-on cards:
If desired, you can install add-on cards to the system. See Chapter 5 for
details on installing PCI add-on cards.
5. Check all cable connections and airflow:
Make sure all power and data cables are properly connected and not
blocking the chassis airflow. See Chapter 5 for details on cable connections. Also, check the air seals for damage. The air seals are located
under the blower fan and beneath the frame cross section that separates the drive bay area from the serverboard area of the chassis.

Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives have been properly installed and all connections have been made.
1. Accessing the drive bays:
All drives are accessable from the front of the server. For servicing the
CD-ROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove the top chassis
cover. Hard disk drives can be installed and removed from the front of
the chassis without removing the top chassis cover.

Chapter 2: Server Installation
2. CD-ROM and floppy disk drives:
A slim CD-ROM and a floppy drive should be preinstalled in your server.
Refer to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a CD-ROM and/or floppy disk
drive to the system.
3. Check the airflow:
Airflow is provided by four heavy-duty 8-cm hot-swappable blower fans.
The system component layout was carefully designed to direct sufficient
cooling airflow to the components that generate the most heat. Note that
all power and data cables have been routed in such a way that they do
not block the airflow generated by the fans.
4. Supplying power to the system:
The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug
the power cord from the power supply unit into a high-quality power
strip that offers protection from electrical noise and power surges. It is
recommended that you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect
yourself from harm and the SuperServer 6023P-i 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 the CD-ROM and floppy drives.
When disconnecting power, you should first power down the
system with the operating system 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 electrostatic discharge as
protection from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that
have been specifically designed as electrical insulators.
4-1
SUPERSERVER 6023P-i Manual
! The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and
must be plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
! Serverboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if
the onboard battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its
polarities. On the X5DPi-G2, the positive side should be facing up.
This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent
type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries
according to the manufacturer's instructions.
! CD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - This may have come equipped with a
CD-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.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
! Keep the area around the SuperServer 6023P-i clean and free of
clutter.
! The SuperServer 6023P-i weighs approximately 43 lbs (19.5 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.
! 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.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
! 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.
4-3
SUPERSERVER 6023P-i Manual

Operating Precautions
!
Care must be taken to assure that the chassis cover is in place when
the 6023P-i is operating to assure proper cooling. Out of warranty
damage to the 6023P-i system can occur if this practice is not strictly
followed.

Advanced Serverboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks
to the X5DPi-G2 serverboard, connect the data and power cables and install add-on cards. All serverboard jumpers and connections are described
and a layout and quick reference chart are included in this chapter. Remember to close the chassis completely when you have finished working
on the serverboard to protect and cool the system sufficiently.
5-1
Handling the X5DPi-G2 Serverboard
Static electrical discharge can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to printed circuit boards, it is important to handle them very carefully (see Chapter 4). Also note that the size and weight of the serverboard
can cause it to bend if handled improperly, which may result in damage. 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 static discharge.
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 motherboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage.
When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

PGA Processor and Heatsink Installation
!
When handling the processor package, avoid placing direct
pressure on the label area of the fan. Also, do not place the
serverboard on a conductive surface, which can damage the
BIOS battery and prevent the system from booting up.
IMPORTANT: Always connect the power cord last and always remove it before
adding, removing or changing any hardware components. Make sure that you
install the processor into the CPU socket before you install the heatsink. The
X5DPi-G2 can support either one or two Xeon processors of up to 3.20 GHz. If
installing one processor only, install it into CPU socket #1.
1. Lift the lever on the CPU socket.
Lift the lever completely or you will
damage the CPU socket when
power is applied. (Install a processor into CPU #1 socket first.)
Socket lever
2. Install the CPU in the socket.
Make sure that pin 1 of the CPU is
seated on pin 1 of the socket (both
corners are marked with a triangle).
When using only one CPU, install it
into CPU socket #1 (CPU socket #2
is automatically disabled if only one
CPU is used).
Pin 1
3. Press the lever down until you
hear it *click* into the locked position. See Figure 5-1 for pictures of
the 604-pin CPU socket before and
after the processor is installed.
Socket lever in
locked position
5-2
Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Setup
4. Apply the proper amount of thermal compound to the CPU die and place
the heatsink on top of the CPU. Make sure the heatsink sits completely flat
on the CPU. If not completely flat, the space between the two will degrade
the heat dissipation function of the heatsink, which may cause the processor to overheat.
5. Secure the heatsink by locking each retention clip into its proper position.
When correctly installed, the clips should *click* into place and the three
black tabs on the CPU retention pieces should protrude fully through the
corresponding holes on the each clip. See Figures 5-2a and 5-2b for diagrams of the retention clips and the heatsink installation procedure.
IMPORTANT: Please note that special, new silver heat sink retention clips
must be used with all Xeon 533 MHz FSB (front side bus) 604-pin processors. These new retention clips have “604P” clearly marked on them. Using
the old clips will not keep the proper amount of pressure applied and may
cause the processor to overheat. In addition, you should not use these
new retention clips with Xeon 400 MHz FSB processors (even in 604-pin
CPU sockets) as they will be too tight and may damage the CPU socket.
6. If installing two processors, repeat these steps to install the second
processor in the CPU #2 slot.
Figure 5-1.

Connecting Cables
Now that the processors are 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 in preconfigured systems 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). If you are configuring the system, keep the airflow in mind when routing the cables. The following data
cables (with their serverboard connector locations noted) should be connected. See the serverboard layout figure in this chapter for connector
locations.
! IDE Device Cables (IDE#1 and IDE#2)
! Floppy Drive Cable (JP7)
! Control Panel Cable (JF2, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The X5DPi-G2 has a 24-pin primary power supply connector designated
"ATX Power" for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the appropriate connector from the power supply to the "ATX Power" connector to
supply power to the motherboard. The Secondary ATX Power Connector
(at J15) must also be connected to your power supply. See the Connector
Definitions section in this chapter for power connector pin definitions.

SUPERSERVER 6023P-i User’s Manual
Connecting the Control Panel
JF2 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See
Figure 5-3 for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons
and LED indicators. Please note that even and odd numbered pins are on
opposite sides of each header.
All JF2 wires have been bundled into single ribbon cable to simplify their
connection. Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the
board. The other end connects to the Control Panel printed circuit board,
located just behind the system status LEDs in the chassis.
See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for details and pin
descriptions of JF2.

Installing Memory
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules:
http://www.supermicro.com/support/
CAUTION
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM
modules to prevent any possible damage. Also note that the
memory is interleaved to improve performance (see step 1).
DIMM Installation (See Figure 5-5)
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory slots, starting with
Bank 1 (DIMM#1A, DIMM#1B). The memory scheme is interleaved so
you must install two modules at a time, beginning with Bank 1, then
Bank 2.
2. Insert each DIMM module into its slot. Pay attention to the notch along
the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the DIMM module incorrectly.
3. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the
slot. Repeat for all modules (see step 1 above).

Adding PCI Cards
1.
64-bit PCI slot:
The X5DPi-G2 has a single 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X SXB slot. Three
standard size PCI-X cards can be installed into the riser card and be
supported by the SC822 chassis backplane.
2.
64-bit PCI card installation:
The system should be powered down when adding or removing PCI
cards. Begin by removing the top cover of the chassis. You will see a
metal enclosure that houses the riser card. Remove this housing by
lifting the two plastic levers at either end and pulling the housing up and
out of the chassis. The riser card is attached to the inside top of the
housing. The riser card has three slots - you can change the frequency
settings of slots PCI-X #2 and #3 with jumpers S1 and P1, respectively,
which are located on the riser card. The default setting is PCI-X 100
MHz. A table for the S1/P1 jumper settings has been silk-screened on
the riser card. The speed of PCI-X #1 is set with jumpers on the
motherboard (see Section 5-9).
Release the latch that secures the PCI slot I/O shields to the housing by
pulling it away from the housing. Remove the shield(s) and insert a PCI
card(s) into the desired slot(s) on the riser card, pushing down with your
thumbs evenly on both sides of the card. After all cards have been
added, push the latch back into position. Replace the housing in the
serverboard making sure the plastic levers properly catch on the chassis,
then push them down to lock the housing in place. Finish by replacing
the top chassis cover and powering up the system.
Note: The PCI slot I/O shields protect the serverboard and its components
from EMI and aid in proper ventilation, so make sure there is always a
shield covering each slot. Also, do not use the riser card included with
the 6023P-i with any other serverboard and do not use any other riser
card in the 6023P-i.

Explanation of
Jumpers
Connector
Pins
To modify the operation of the
serverboard, jumpers can be
used to choose between
optional settings.
Jumpers
create shorts between two pins
to change the function of the
connector. Pin 1 is identified
with a square solder pad on
the printed circuit board. See
the serverboard layout page for
jumper locations.
Note : On two pin jumpers,
"Closed" means the jumper is
on and "Open" means the
jumper is off the pins.
CMOS Clear
JBT1 is used to clear CMOS (which
will also clear any passwords). Instead of pins, this jumper consists of
contact pads to prevent accidentally
clearing the contents of CMOS.
To clear CMOS, 1) First unplug the
power cord(s) 2) With the power disconnected, short the CMOS pads with
a metal object such as a small
screwdriver 3) Remove the screwdriver
(or shorting device) 4) Reconnect the
power cord(s) and power on the system.
Note: Do not use the PW_ON connector to clear CMOS.

Advanced Chassis Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install components and perform
maintenance on the SC822 chassis. For component installation, follow the
steps in the order given to eliminate the most common problems encountered. If some steps are unnecessary, skip ahead to the step that follows.
Tools Required
The only tool you will need to install components and perform maintenance
is a Philips screwdriver.
6-1
Static-Sensitive Devices
Electricstatic 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.
Unpacking
The serverboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage.
When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

connection. Connect the cable from JF2 on the serverboard to JP4 on the
Control Panel PCB (printed circuit board). Make sure the red wire plugs into
pin 1 on both JF2 and JP4. Pull all excess cabling out of the airflow path.
The LEDs inform you of system status. See "Chapter 3: System Interface"
for details on the LEDs and the control panel buttons. Details on JF2 can be
found in the "Chapter 5: Advanced Serverboard Installation."

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
6-3
System Fans
Four heavy-duty 8-cm fans provide all the cooling needed for the SuperServer 6023P-i. 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. See Figure 6-2.
System Fan Failure
The fans run at 3400 rpm. If a fan fails, the ambient air temperature in the
chassis will rise and activate the overheat LED on the control panel. Replace any failed fan immediately. The hot plug fans will start to function
upon connection to its fan header on the X5DPi-G2 serverboard.
Replacing System Cooling Fans
1.
Removing a fan:
Remove the chassis cover. Press the tabs on the top of the fan housing
and remove the fan and its housing. The system power need not be shut
down since the fans are all hot-swappable on the X5DPi-G2 serverboard.
2.
Installing a new fan:
Replace the failed fan with an identical 8-cm, 12 volt fan (available from
Supermicro, p/n Fan-044). Position the new fan at its proper place in the
chassis by fitting the fan with its housing onto the fan mounts in the
chassis. A "click" can be heard if the fan (in its housing) is properly
installed. If the system power is on, the hot-swappable fan feature will
cause the fan to start immediately upon being connected to its header on
the serverboard.

Chapter 6: Advanced Chassis Setup
Hard Drive Installation
1.
Hard drive support:
Hard disk drives may installed in the six internal 3.5" drive bays as well
as in the 5.25" drive bay. Hard drives should be mounted in drive
carriers for installation, to help promote proper airflow and shield against
EMI. For this reason, even empty carriers without hard drives installed
should remain in the chassis. You must power down the system before
installing or removing any hard drive.
2.
Mounting a hard drive in a drive carrier:
IDE hard drives are not hot-swappable, meaning system power must be
turned off before installing and/or removing them. After power is
removed from the system, remove the top cover of the chassis to access
the drive carriers, which may then be unscrewed and taken out. When
installing a hard disk drive, position it in the carrier with the printed circuit
board side toward the carrier and with the drive's mounting holes aligned
with those in the carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with four
screws, as shown in Figure 6-3.
Connect the drive's ribbon and power
cables to the motherboard, then replace the chassis cover before
powering on.
3.
Removing hard drives:
To remove a hard drive and its carrier, first power down the system and
then remove the top cover of the chassis. Detach the ribbon and power
cables from the drive. Unscrew the retention screw at the top center of
the drive, then push the drive carrier out from the back until you can
grasp and pull it out through the front of the chassis. Attach a new
component to the carrier if desired (as in step 2), then reverse the drive
carrier removal procedure described in this step to reinstall the carrier.
Remember to screw in the retention screw. Replace the top cover when
finished.

Mounting the component in the drive carrier
A component such as an IDE hard drive can be mounted in the 5 1/4"
drive bay. The component should also be mounted in a drive carrier to
simplify its installation and removal from the chassis. These carriers also
help promote proper airflow. To add a component such as those noted
above, install a drive into the carrier with the printed circuit board side
toward the carrier so that the mounting holes align with those in the
carrier. Secure the drive to the carrier with the four screws.
2.
Installing/removing 5 1/4" drive bay component
A single 5 1/4" IDE drive bay is located in the front of the chassis, making
it easily accessible for installation and removal. This component is not
hot-swappable, meaning system power must be turned off before
installing and/or removing. To remove the drive carrier, first power down
the system and then remove the top cover of the chassis. Unscrew the
retention screw at the top center of the drive, then push the drive carrier
out from the back until you can grasp and pull it out through the front of
the chassis. Attach the component to the carrier if installing. Then
reverse the drive carrier removal procedure to install the drive, making
sure you screw in the retention screw. Replace the top cover when
finished.
Drive Cables
• The floppy disk drive cable has seven twisted wires.
• A color mark on a cable typically designates the location of pin 1.
• A single floppy disk drive ribbon cable has 34 wires and two connectors to
provide for two floppy disk drives. The connector with twisted wires always
connects to drive A, and the connector that does not have twisted wires
always connects to drive B.

Power Supply
The SuperServer 6023P-i has a 400 watt power supply. This power supply
has an auto-switching capability, which enables it to automatically sense
and operate at either 110 or 220 volts. A power on/off switch is located at
the back of the power supply. Turning this power switch to the off position
will remove both main and standby power from the system.
Power Supply Failure
If the power supply unit fails, the system will shut down and you will need
to replace the power supply unit. Replacement units can be ordered directly from Supermicro. See contact information in Chapter 1
Removing/Replacing the Power Supply
1.
Removing the power supply:
First unplug the power cord from the system. Remove the chassis cover
by pressing the two release buttons on the top of the chassis, near the
front, and push the chassis top rearward about one inch. To remove the
failed power unit, unplug the power cord that connects to the power
supply. Then, remove all screws that connect the power supply to the
chassis (two at the rear, two at the side, and one on the bottom). The
power supply can then be lifted straight upward from the chassis.
2.
Installing a new power supply:
Replace the failed unit with another unit of the same input voltage, output
voltage and wattage. It is highly recommended to replace it with exactly
the same model power supply. Carefully insert the new unit into position
in the chassis and secure it with the five screws, as noted in the
paragraph above. Before reconnecting the power cord, make certain that
the power switch on the power supply is in the "off" position. Then
reconnect the power cord, replace the chassis top cover and reposition
the unit back into the rack. Finish by turning the power switch on the
power supply "on", and then depress the power button on the chassis
front panel.

Introduction
This chapter describes the PhoenixBIOS™ Setup utility for the X5DPi-G2.
The Phoenix ROM BIOS is stored in a flash chip and can be easily upgraded
using a floppy disk-based program.
Note: Due to periodic changes to the BIOS, some settings may have been
added or deleted and might not yet be recorded in this manual. Please refer
to the Manual Download area of the Supermicro web site
<http://www.supermicro.com> for any changes to BIOS that may not be
reflected in this manual.
System BIOS
The BIOS is the Basic Input Output System used in all IBM® PC, XT™, AT® ,
and PS/2 ® compatible computers. The PhoenixBIOS flash chip stores the
system parameters, such type of disk drives, video displays, etc. in the
CMOS. The CMOS memory requires very little electrical power. When the
computer is turned off, a back-up battery provides power to the BIOS flash
chip, enabling it to retain system parameters. Each time the computer is
powered-on the computer is configured with the values stored in the BIOS
ROM by the system BIOS, which gains control at boot-up.
How To Change the Configuration Data
The CMOS information that determines the system parameters may be
changed by entering the BIOS Setup utility. This Setup utility can be accessed by pressing the <Delete> key at the appropriate time during system
boot, see below.
Starting the Setup Utility
Normally, the only visible POST (Power On Self Test) routine is the memory
test. As the memory is being tested, press the <Delete> key to enter the
main menu of the BIOS Setup utility. From the main menu, you can access
the other setup screens, such as the Security and Power menus. Beginning with Section 4-3, detailed descriptions are given for each parameter
setting in the Setup utility.

SUPERSERVER 6023P-i Manual
System CMOS checksum bad - Default configuration used
System CMOS has been corrupted or modified incorrectly, perhaps by an
application program that changes data stored in CMOS. The BIOS installed Default
Setup Values. If you do not want these values, enter Setup and enter your own
values. If the error persists, check the system battery or contact your dealer.

Check date and time settings
BIOS found date or time out of range and reset the Real-Time Clock. May require
setting legal date (1991-2099).
Previous boot incomplete - Default configuration used
Previous POST did not complete successfully. POST loads default values and
offers to run Setup. If the failure was caused by incorrect values and they are
not corrected, the next boot will likely fail. On systems with control of wait
states, improper Setup settings can also terminate POST and cause this error on
the next boot. Run Setup and verify that the waitstate configuration is correct.
This error is cleared the next time the system is booted.
Memory Size found by POST differed from CMOS
Memory size found by POST differed from CMOS.

Appendix B
BIOS POST Codes
This section lists the POST (Power On Self Test) codes for the PhoenixBIOS. POST
codes are divided into two categories: recoverable and terminal.
Recoverable POST Errors
When a recoverable type of error occurs during POST, the BIOS will display
an POST code that describes the problem. BIOS may also issue one of the
following beep codes:
1 long and two short beeps - video configuration error
1 continuous long beep - no memory detected
Terminal POST Errors
If a terminal type of error occurs, BIOS will shut down the system. Before
doing so, BIOS will write the error to port 80h, attempt to initialize video and
write the error in the top left corner of the screen.
The following is a list of codes that may be written to port 80h.

* If the BIOS detects error 2C, 2E, or 30 (base 512K RAM error), it displays an additional
word-bitmap (xxxx) indicating the address line or bits that failed. For example, “2C 0002”
means address line 1 (bit one set) has failed. “2E 1020" means data bits 12 and 5 (bits
12 and 5 set) have failed in the lower 16 bits. The BIOS also sends the bitmap to the port80 LED display. It first displays the checkpoint code, followed by a delay, the high-order
byte, another delay, and then the loworder byte of the error. It repeats this sequence
continuously.
